Fu Yunruo grimaced. She stood in front of the flower shed for a long time, staring at the orchid pot in her hands and at a loss of what to do.
But this was the first task Uncle Guo gave her. What if she couldn’t do it well, making Uncle Guo feel that she was not qualified for the job and fire her?
She was very satisfied with this job…
Right before mid-noon, Uncle Guo suddenly returned from the flower shed.
Fu Yunruo was surprised. She said embarrassedly: “Uncle Guo, I’m sorry. The lunch is not ready yet.” She initially was going to call him again right before lunch was ready.
She was making winter melon pork rib soup today, but it was still boiling in the kitchen.
Early the next morning, Fu Yunruo picked a few lettuces and a winter melon from her own garden. She then went to the pork stall and bought half a kilogram of spare rib. She also brought with her the twenty eggs she bought from Auntie Mei’s house last night and departed to work with Wenwen.
She had been getting used to riding an electric scooter and already remembered the road, so she didn’t let Auntie Mei send her again.
Fu Yunruo then checked the diapers. Seeing that Wenwen didn’t need a change, she then played with him for a while. Feeling that the child had been coaxed, Fu Yunruo got up and was about to resume her study. But the moment she walked away, the quiet baby Wenwen started to become fussy again.
“Ya, ya, aaahh!!” Woman, do not rely on your natural beauty to neglect the basic self-care. Even if the sun doesn’t tan your skin now, it won’t necessarily so in the future. Once the damage has been done, no amount of skincare product can restore it completely!
Fu Yunruo stood in a place where she would not disturb Uncle Guo, staying quietly and watching the old man skillfully tended to the flowers.
Soon afterward, Fu Yunruo felt the baby on her back moved. She instantly remembered that she hadn’t fed her son since they arrived at the flower garden, so she said to Uncle Guo: “Uncle Guo, I’ll go to clean up Baobao.”
The flower garden said by Auntie Mei was not far from their village. They drove slowly for about 30 minutes. After Fu Yunruo became more used to the road, they drove faster and arrived in 15 minutes.
The flower garden was at the foot of a mountain. Surrounded by steel wire fences, people outside couldn’t see the inside clearly. Although it was at the foot of a mountain, the location was not remote. The flower garden was located on the side of the village’s gathering place. About 20 meters aside, there was a one-story house built from red bricks.
The next day, Fu Yunruo dressed in an ordinary short-sleeved shirt and casual pants. Although she didn’t dress-up deliberately, with her straight legs, beautiful figure, and outstanding aura, she looked no different than wearing an expensive high-end fashion.
Fu Yunruo was indeed beautiful. Otherwise, how could so many people ask for her marriage in secret, and didn’t mind that she already had a son? Any man would be happy to marry such a beautiful girl. Even if there were conservative elders who might grumble in secret, they couldn’t hold back their infatuated sons.
The sun was bright today, but it was not too hot, and many people were working on the field.
After walking for a while, someone was shouting from behind: “Ruoruo, Ruoruo!”
Fu Yunruo turned around. Auntie Mei was running forward with a hoe on her shoulder.
Fu Yunruo later realized that her son was becoming lively. The baby, who previously was quiet and well-behaved almost all the time, now made noise even when he wasn’t hungry or soiling his diapers.
Before, Fu Yunruo felt that her son was like a girl, and was worried about a boy being too quiet. Now that he became lively and handful, she thought that her previous quiet son was still better.
The children have seen the baby brother and also got the promise. Satisfied, they immediately ran to have fun.
Then a group of aunts gathered around in their place, showering Chi Wen with praises: “Baobao is really good looking. Even more beautiful than a little girl.”
“Oh, look at his eyes! They are so black and lively!”
