A Blessed Daughter - Chapter 404
Chapter 404 Rescued by Wei Ruo in the snowstorm
Lu Yuhong was the first to ask: “Miss Wei, why are you here?”
“I came back from the wasteland and caught up with the heavy snow. It was too dangerous to continue on the road, so I rested where I was.” Wei Ruo replied.
Lu Yuhong asked again: “Are you planning to set up camp here?”
“Yes, the wind and snow are heavy, and the road is dangerous and unpredictable. The terrain here is open, and there is no risk of avalanches. If you stay where you are and rest, as long as you keep warm, you will not be in danger.” Wei Ruo analyzed.
This is indeed the case, and all six of them showed signs of agreement.
The only prerequisite for doing so is that you have enough supplies on your body.
Like these few people…
Wei Ruo asked: “Why are you here?”
Yuan Wangyuan, who was beside Lu Yuhong, replied on behalf of several people: “We started down the mountain when it just snowed in the morning. At that time, we didn’t expect the snow to fall so heavily. We thought it would be very easy to go down the mountain to the stable at the foot of the mountain to retrieve the horses and ride them. I will be able to enter the city soon. I never thought that when I was at the foot of the mountain, the snow was already very thick, and it would be more dangerous to go up the mountain again, so I decided to go back to the city on horseback. I didn’t expect that it would be impossible to move forward after halfway through.”
Yuan Wangyuan showed embarrassment when he spoke.
Wei Ruo keenly sensed the embarrassment of the few people. Not only were they wearing thin clothes in such heavy snow, but they only had a few horses around them, and they probably didn’t bring much food.
So Wei Ruo took the initiative to say: “If you don’t dislike it, you can rest in my shed for a while and warm up by the fire.”
Wei Ruo took the initiative to invite, saving several people from the embarrassment of opening their mouths.
“Is it possible?” Liu Yu asked in surprise.
“Of course it is possible.” Wei Ruo said.
Lu Yuhong smiled and said, “Liu Yu, what are you talking about? Brother Yichen is here. They are brothers and sisters of the same blood. What are you afraid of with him around?”
Liu Yu smiled: “Brother Yichen is here, but we are not related to Miss Wei, so we are very grateful to be taken in by Miss Wei.”
“You are right in saying that!”
As Lu Yuhong said, he took off the jade pendant around his waist, and wanted to give it to Wei Ruo as a thank you gift.
Wei Ruo naturally did not dare to answer.
Wei Yichen stopped Lu Yuhong: “Brother Lu, whether a man or a woman should kiss each other.”
Lu Yuhong was stunned for a moment before realizing that it was very impolite for a man to give his jade pendant to a woman.
So he smiled awkwardly: “I’m sorry Miss Wei, I didn’t mean to be frivolous, but I didn’t think about it so much for a while, so I just wanted to express my gratitude.”
Wei Ruo knew Lu Yuhong’s thick-headed character, so he wouldn’t argue with him.
“Mr. Lu, you are welcome. Find a place to sit down first. Meimei and I will cook a pot of broth. Let’s drink some soup to warm our bodies.”
After explaining to several people, Wei Ruo went back to the carriage to get things.
After Wei Ruo got into the carriage, Yuan Wangyuan patted Xu Fengyuan’s shoulder, who was silent the whole time, with a smile on his face: “Brother Xu, if you have something to say, you need to say it. Don’t bore yourself to death.”
“I have nothing to say.” Xu Fengyuan said.
“Brother Xu, your mouth can deceive people, but you can’t deceive people with the way you looked at the eldest girl of the Wei family just now.” Yuan Wangyuan broke through.
“Brother Yuan, I’ll find a few stones to serve as seats, and you will put our horses in place.”
Xu Fengyuan changed the topic, then handed the reins of his mount to Yuan Wangyuan, and then walked away.
Yuan Wangyuan shook his head helplessly with a smile, and then his eyes fell on Wei Yichen who was also silent.
It’s strange to say that it is understandable for Xu Fengyuan to be less talkative when he sees the eldest girl of the Wei family. Why is Wei Yichen also silent?
They are brothers and sisters, but they don’t seem to be very familiar with each other. Wei Yichen and Miss Wei are not as familiar as Lu Yuhong.
Not long after, Xu Fengyuan moved the stones, and the horses were placed around the shed.
After everyone sat on the stone and roasted for a while, the tempting fragrance came out of the steaming pot.
Lu Yuhong was the first to be unable to hold back any longer. While sniffing the smell of food, he asked Wei Ruo who just got off the carriage:
“Big girl, what are you cooking in this pot? Why is it so fragrant?”
“Mutton soup, it’s cold, you can drink mutton soup to keep warm.” Wei Ruo replied.
“It smells so good! My stomach is growling.” Lu Yuhong said.
“It must be because you are hungry, Mr. Lu.” Wei Ruo said.
“It’s true that I’m hungry. We haven’t eaten anything since morning, but it’s true that your broth is delicious.” Lu Yuhong commented.
Yuan Wangyuan on the side teased: “Young Master Lu, don’t be tempted to steal it.”
Lu Yuhong said unhappily: “You can rest assured, I will never move until the eldest girl says it’s ready to eat. It is disrespectful to the food to touch the chopsticks before the food is cooked.”
Wei Ruo smiled, and handed a cloth bag from the car to Lu Yuhong.
“Take this and warm it on the brazier, and eat it with mutton soup in a while.” Wei Ruo said.
Lu Yuhong opened the cloth bag, and saw that it was full of dough cakes that were bigger than their faces.
Several people took one without hesitation.
While several people were warming up by the fire, Xiumei took out some cloaks and blankets and distributed them to them.
“Although these cloaks are women’s styles, they are all new and have never been worn by anyone. If you gentlemen don’t mind, you can put them on to keep you warm.” Wei Ruo added.
Several people were not polite or hesitant, and one of them took one and wrapped it around his body.
Compared with etiquette and face, life is more important.
With cloaks and blankets to keep out the cold, and a brazier to keep warm, the six of them felt a lot warmer.
After a while, the mutton soup was ready. Wei Ruo filled a bowl of soup for everyone, and put two large pieces of mutton in each bowl.
Seeing the bowls and chopsticks that Wei Ruoxin took out, Lu Yuhong couldn’t help but sigh with emotion: “Miss, you have a complete set of things in this car.”
“I often go out to open up wasteland, where there is a shortage of supplies, so I am used to bringing more complete.” Wei Ruo explained.
In fact, these things are not all carried on the carriage. No matter how big the carriage is, the space is limited, and it is impossible to carry such complete things.
Especially things that are not easy to preserve like mutton, it will go bad within a few days after being put on the carriage.
“Miss has the foresight! Today, thanks to Miss, we can keep warm from the cold.” Yuan Wangyuan said.
Wei Ruo smiled: “Drink it while it’s hot.”
The few people were not polite, and drank while it was hot.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m too hungry, or the mutton soup cooked by Wei Ruo is better than other places, and the faces of several people showed amazed and satisfied expressions.
“Miss, your mutton soup is so delicious. This is the best mutton soup I’ve ever tasted! And this cake is more fragrant than other cakes!” Lu Yuhong exclaimed.
