Shao Qingyuan couldn’t be bothered to answer. However, when he saw her anxious expression, he immediately became nervous. “How are you?”
“What could possibly happen to me?”
“Then why did you…” It was as if someone was chasing after her.
Gu Yundong waved her hand. “I’m not the one in trouble. Don’t worry, we’ll just watch the show from now on.”
She didn’t ask why Shao Qingyuan was here anymore. She felt that it might not be good to ask too much.
However, it was undeniable that there was an indescribable joy in her heart.
Seeing that she was indeed fine, Shao Qingyuan heaved a sigh of relief and changed the topic. “Do you want to go to the shop to take a look?”
She was in a good mood. Now that something like this had happened to Gu Xian’er, it was no longer a problem.
The carriage drove in the direction of the shop. Only then did she realize that the streets were much livelier than before. All kinds of New Year goods had already been placed.
There was a folk song circulating in Old Beijing: “Children, children, don’t be greedy. After Laba, it will be the New Year.”
It seemed like everyone was already preparing for the New Year.
Gu Yundong thought of the villagers in the workshop. She turned to Shao Qingyuan and said, “The workers can only take five days off for the New Year at most. I’m wondering if we should distribute some New Year goods to everyone. When we recruit people in the future, there will be more people who will sign up.”
Shao Qingyuan nodded. “When the time comes, we can buy some meat and some cloth. It’s not good to give too much in the first year. It’ll easily raise their appetite. If we give them too little in the future, they’ll complain.”
Gu Yundong thought so too. When she earned more money in the future, she would slowly increase the benefits.
The two of them discussed how much they should pay as they spoke.
When they arrived at the shop, they saw Zhuangzi sending a customer out with a smile.
He looked energetic. It seemed that he had been very happy as a shop assistant recently.
When Zheng Gang saw her coming over, he consciously told her about the situation in the shop and showed her the account book.
Gu Yundong’s eyes gradually brightened when she saw that the business in the shop was thriving.
With the money, she planned to look for Gu Dajiang after the New Year and visit Qing’an Prefecture first.
In the following days, Gu Yundong became even busier. This was the first year since she arrived at Yongfu Village. It was also the first year since she left the old Gu family and took charge. It was also the first year when she had money to buy New Year goods.
Gu Yundong had bought everything early and even asked Gu Yunshu to ask Qin Wenzheng for a few couplets.
She even made two sets of new clothes for her family, including Shao Qingyuan.
Yes, the Tong family also each had a set. The entire family was overjoyed and worked even harder.
Gu Yundong was very satisfied with the Tong family. She thought that her business would definitely expand in the future, so she had the intention to train the Tong family.
Hence, after finishing her work and eating, she would get Gu Yunshu to teach everyone how to read.
Gu Yunshu clearly liked being a little teacher. His adult-like behavior amused Gu Yundong.
The Tong family was even more excited. It was very rare for servants to be able to read. Therefore, even though they had been busy for the entire day, they did not slack off at all when they studied.
To Gu Yundong’s surprise, the one who had learned the best was the second son of the Tong family, the man who had never remarried and had almost no presence.
She did not go to the Peng residence again, but she had agreed to watch the show. Naturally, she asked someone to pay attention to the commotion there.
The best candidate was Liu Wei. After all, he was also a gossip.
On the 23rd day, Liu Wei lived up to her expectations and brought her the aftermath of what happened that day, as well as Gu Xian’er’s end..
