Chapter 228: New Year’s Goods
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Cough, he said that he was quite sorry that you had encountered such a thing in his residence.” Liu Wei coughed lightly and said with a smile, “Strange, why didn’t he come to tell you personally?”
What else could it be? He must be afraid of her. What if he was unlucky again?
Gu Yundong sighed deeply about the Peng family.
“In that case, Concubine Xia has become the biggest winner.”
“Isn’t that so?” Liu Wei recalled the whole story and couldn’t help but tremble. “These women’s methods are too terrifying.”
Fortunately, his father was a good person and there was no such mess in the family.
Otherwise, with his innocent personality, he might not live past three years old.
Shao Qingyuan glanced at him from the corner of his eye. No one knew who he was talking to. “So, one wife is enough.”
Liu Wei nodded in agreement. “Yes, that makes sense. I-I won’t go to brothels in the future.”
This awareness was quite high. Could he bear to?
After knowing about the Peng family, Gu Yundong began to focus on preparing for the New Year.
Twenty-three, prepare sweet candies. Twenty-four, house-cleaning day. Twenty-five, fried tofu. Twenty-six, stewed white meat. Twenty-seven, kill the rooster. Twenty-eight, prepare the flour. Twenty-nine, steamed buns.
Although Gu Yundong did not strictly prepare these according to the folk songs, she was indeed busy every day.
In the afternoon of the 29th, she asked the eldest son of the Tong family to push the cart to the Liu family’s courtyard.
The villagers in the workshop were very diligent and efficient. They had already received a month’s salary. 500 copper coins was not a small sum. When they saw the money, they were even more motivated.
When Gu Yundong entered the courtyard, someone immediately saw her.
“Boss, why are you here?”
“It’s the holidays tomorrow, so I have to give you guys New Year’s goods so that everyone can have a good New Year.”
Gu Yundong smiled. Everyone was diligent, and she was happy to distribute the New Year goods.
Everyone was stunned. They stopped what they were doing and looked at her
in surprise. “There’s… there’s New Year’s goods?”
“That’s right. Why is it so good? We’ve been paid and you’re still giving out New Year goods?”
As he spoke, Father Tong had already pushed the cart in.
Seeing that it was filled with many things, everyone present could not help but gasp.
It was one thing to give out New Year goods, but why did she give out so many?
Everyone became excited and couldn’t help but glance at the cart.
This was especially true for people from poor families. Although they received a month’s salary, their families had many urgent needs. How could they have the ability to buy anything good?
They wished they could come to work during the New Year and show off their hard work. That way, the Gu family would recruit them again.
Gu Yundong walked to a step in the Liu family’s courtyard. Unfortunately, she was still growing. Even if she stood on the step, she would only be looked at from above.
She could not help but tiptoe a little. After a while, she gave up and said as if nothing had happened, “Everyone has worked hard recently. It’s the New Year, so it’s only right to give out some rewards. Let’s be happy together.”
Everyone immediately beamed with joy. They had just seen that there were many good things on it. They were better than what they had bought themselves.
They had also heard about bosses who gave out New Year goods, but the things those people gave were not worth much.
What’s more, they were short-term workers. After the New Year, they would rest for a while.
Gu Yundong coughed lightly. “Next, those whose names I call, come forward and receive them one by one. I don’t want to miss out on anyone.”
“Alright, alright,” someone replied. Then, as if he had thought of something, he hurriedly said, “I, I’ll go wash my hands. I’ll be back soon..”
