Hearing Liu Duo wanted to go to town, Ye Mo started fuming: “No! I don’t agree.”
Liu Duo was getting used to his mad outbursts, and put him out of mind. Considering he used brute force that left handprints on her before, she didn’t want to get involved with him.
“Xiao duo, do you want to go?” Ye Liu raised his eyebrows: “You can tell me, I’ll listen.”
Liu Duo also paid no mind to hooligans. In her mind she thought: Are you the one in charge? No!
Looking at Liu Duo’s prideful expression, Ye Liu liked it.
“Let’s go,” Ye Yang said, slowly getting up to grab the money.
Seeing Ye Yang agree, Liu Duo clapped her hands and cheered: “Eldest brother is the best!”
Seeing his eldest brother’s approval, Ye Mo took his machete back and went out to cut firewood.
Ye Liu shook his head, when will third brother change his bad temper?
Ye Yang took Liu Duo to town, but needed to stop and rest her legs partway through.
She’d never done a lot of walking. She went everywhere in a car in her last life, so she didn’t like how exhausting this much walking was.
“Big brother, when we go back later, can’t we take the oxcart?” On the way, she saw an ox cart and wanted to ride, but the family conditions wouldn’t allow it.
“Alright,” Seeing how exhausted she was, Ye Yang made a mental note to bring the cart next time.
Liu Duo excitedly looked around at all the hustle and bustle… Though this peaceful little town wasn’t the biggest place on the map, everything one could need could be found there.
Ye Yang said, coming up to a food stall: “Two forty pound bags of flour.”
The chubby boss, happily said: “Well, four copper per pound comes out to three hundred and twenty copper.”
Flour was divided into three grades: coarse, fine, and premium, their corresponding prices being 4, 6, and 8 copper to the pound.
All kinds of foods had prices listed on wooden signs in a font similar to that of modern times.
Rice was likewise divided into three grades: fragmented rice at eight copper per pound, coarse rice at ten, and fine rice at twenty.
“Big brother, can we buy a few pounds of rice?” she asked, having not eaten rice for a long time. While crude fiber was very nutritious, they still had to have rice once in a while, right?
“Add five pounds of fine rice,” Ye Yang added, seeing Liu Duo stare at him with gleaming, hope-filled black eyes.
“Alright. Five pounds of fine rice adds another hundred.”Everything together comes out to four hundred and twenty copper,” the man said while adjusting the abacus.
Liu Duo beamed with a bright smile. She would’ve been okay with fragmented, but Ye Yang surprised her by buying fine grade.
So Eldest brother isn’t a stump, she thought.
Ye Yang carried the flour, while Liu Duo took the initiative to grab the rice.
With everything loaded, they hopped on the back of the cart. As they passed the tailor shop, Liu Duo gave it a hard look.
She really wanted to buy more clothes. When she was dropped off at Ye house, she was left with two sets of all white, patch-filled clothes.
Aside from the obvious Liu Duo, what woman doesn’t want to wear more beautiful clothes?
