Chapter 229: Comeback

Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations

Seeing this, the others also looked at their sticky and black hands and quickly turned to run.

Gu Yundong was carrying the first batch of New Year goods. Before she could hand it over, everyone in front of her had already run away.

Father Tong, who was standing behind her, held back his laughter. He simply lowered his head and began to organize the things on the cart, looking very busy.

Gu Yundong was speechless. She pretended that nothing had happened.

Soon, the person who went out ran back and stood in front of Gu Yundong, scratching his head and laughing.

Gu Yundong was also helpless. She held cloth in her left hand and pork in her right. Then, she started to call out names.

“Wang Shuanzi, two catties of pork, half a catty of brown sugar, and half a piece of cloth.”

The man called Wang Shuanzi was so excited that his eyes turned red. He stretched out his trembling hands and took it over after a long time.

The next moment, he wiped his eyes fiercely. “Boss, thank you. Thank you.”

His family didn’t even have a new set of clothes for the New Year. Now that they had cloth, he could finally make a full set for his wife and children. They could also eat meat.

Gu Yundong smiled and said deliberately, “After receiving the New Year’s goods, you have to work hard. You will only rest tomorrow.”

Wang Shuanzi nodded repeatedly. “Yes, I’ll definitely do my best. I’ll go to work now.”

He carefully placed the things in a clean basket at the side and immediately went to tidy up the sugarcane in high spirits.

Gu Yundong did not stop him and continued to call the next person’s name. “Xu Hua’er.”

“I-I’m here.”

Gu Yundong handed the things to her. Like Wang Shuanzi, she immediately put them down and went to work.

One by one, their names were called over. After receiving the gifts one by one, they were the same as the previous person.

Soon, most of the items on the cart were distributed. Gu Yundong looked at their satisfied and excited expressions. She smiled and left with Father Tong.

There was still the Shi couple left. She carried the gifts over.

Now, the Shi couple was helping her manage the orchard. Because the 30 acres of sugarcane had just been planted, there were not many things to do.

The other 50 acres of land in the neighboring village had also begun to be sorted out. When spring came, they would plant fruits.

The Shi couple was busy with the sugarcane fields, so they found Gousheng’s father, Zhao Zhu, to help with the fields in the neighboring village.

Gu Yundong brought an extra batch of New Year goods and asked Shi Dashan to give it to Zhao Zhu.

As for Zheng Gang and Zhuangzi, they were the same.

The Shi family had a good New Year this year. The three members of the family worked for Gu Yundong. Just the meat alone was six catties. If they couldn’t finish it, they would marinate it. The surrounding neighbors were envious.

In the past, the Shi family was the poorest family in their area. Unexpectedly, they could not even finish eating meat.

However, it was also because of this that everyone in the village knew that working in the Gu family’s workshop would earn them extra things for the New Year. All of them rubbed their palms together, thinking that they would definitely fight for it the next time the Gu family recruited workers.

Qin Wenzheng and the Liu family were also given New Year goods.

After the New Year’s goods were distributed, the workshop temporarily stopped work and the shop was closed.

The next day was New Year’s Eve. Gu Yundong prepared everyone’s red packets and even went to the county to buy firecrackers and fireworks. She was waiting for them to be lit at night.

The entire village was very lively on New Year’s Eve. Many people would stay up through the night for the New Year.

As soon as it was dark, the firecrackers in the village crackled. After this house was finished, there was the next one. There was almost no break in between.

Zeng Jia of the Zeng family also brought his younger siblings out to set off firecrackers. He even greeted Gu Yundong when he saw her.

The three children’s faces were red. In the past, their families were poor. Although they had firecrackers, they could only buy a small batch. This year, they had bought a large bunch of firecrackers..
