Ning Meng Yao lightly nodded: “The speed he studied words and counting is fast. Although he was the last to join but aside from Lin’er, he was the best one among the students.”
“That’s good! We’ll send Zhi’er to a private school.” Yang Le Le decisively clapped her hands without asking for the opinion of the two men.
Hearing Yang Le Le’s voice, Yang Zhu and Yang Yi regained their composure. There was a complicated gaze in Yang Yi’s eyes as he looked at his sister: “Le Le, we need a lot of money to be able to send Zhi’er to a private school.”
“So what about it? After this, our family’s condition will get better and better.” How could Yang Le Le not know that Yang Yi was thinking? So what? This was her nephew they were talking about. After he applied to a good school, won’t she also feel prideful then?
Ning Meng Yao saw that Yang Yi still wanted to say something and laughed fleetingly: “Big Brother Yang, don’t think too much about this. Actually, I kept wanting for you to help me about some matter after your wounds heals up.”
“What is it?”
“Management.” Ning Meng Yao’s red lips lightly parted as she looked at Yang Yi and spoke out this word.
The words ‘management’ made Yang Le Le’s and her father’s head to become stupid since they did not know what it meant. Ning Meng Yao also did not explain, only smiling as she said: “Big Brother Yang will understand later on.”
“Alright.” Yang Yi pondered over it then nodded his head in agreement. It probably revolved around helping her, because she had helped his family many times and would not harm any of them. Since she would not be harming them, then it would be helping them.
When they gathered around the table, Yang Yi told Ning Meng Yao’s words to his wife and Madam Yang. They were both ecstatic, especially Madam Qiao. She was even more grateful to Ning Meng Yao and her sister-in-law.
After they’ve eaten, Ning Meng Yao did not stay in their house for too long and went back home alone. On the way back home, she kept observing this village. She also met some of the children who used to study from her on the road and regarding the gaze in their eyes, she had looked at all of them.
But she only smiled and did not say anything.
Passing by a house, Ning Meng Yao heard a familiar voice: “Male and female are different and should not be too intimate. Yang Cui, it is better if you go back home.”
Because of this familiar voice, Ning Meng Yao curiously looked over. It was the hunter who sold her meat a few times. Tilting her head, she saw that beside his feet, there were pheasants and wild rabbits placed. After thinking about it, she decided to enter.
Actually, when Qiao Tian Chang went back home to see the daughter of his neighbor at his own house and also rummaging through his possessions, he felt dissatisfied and his face became horribly ugly. After seeing Ning Meng Yao walking towards him, his eyes then carried some smile and left Yang Cui to greet her.
“Do you have any matter?” Qiao Tian Chang knew that his words were a bit too intimate, especially in the eyes of Yang Cui.
Yang Cui was the most beautiful girl in the White Mountain Village and she was also delicate. Her family then brought her up to be like a daughter of a great family in hopes she could marry a good man.
Yang Cui belonged to the type that view herself to be above others, thinking that no one in the village grew to be more beautiful than her, even the village head’s daughter, Yang Le Le, was not comparable to her. She now suddenly saw a woman she had never met before who wore bright yellow clothes and her head carried two simple adornments, but the woman looked gorgeous.
Not only that, she realized that when seeing Ning Meng Yao, she had a feeling of self-depreciation. Especially in front that Ning Meng Yao’s refined elegance, she was like a hillbilly.
“I saw your preys when I passed by so I want to buy a few of them.” Ning Meng Yao smiled and conveyed the meaning of her arrival.
Qiao Tian Chang’s eyebrow slightly rose. The last time she bought that many, it could not be that all of them were eaten finished already? But this was not something he should worry about: “How many do you want?”
“Two pheasants and two wild rabbits.” Ning Meng Yao lowered her head to see the preys and pointed at some of them.
Picking the preys easily, he gave them to Ning Meng Yao. She paid for the preys and prepared to leave while Qiao Tian Chang was sending her off to the gates.
Yang Cui saw Qiao Tian Chang treating a woman this way and her face turned ugly, particularly when the other party was more beautiful than her. She muttered in a small voice: “Shameless. Seducing a man at broad daylight.” Not only Qiao Tian Chang heard her words, even Ning Meng Yao also heard it. Her steps halted when she was about to get out and turned her body around to see at the other woman with cold gaze: “I did not break any law by buying preys, unlike young lady, you. You seem to of age already. Woman who is of age actually appeared at the home of a man, this is not good.”
“Yang Cui, I hope that I won’t be seeing you sneaking in my house, especially in the situation that I locked my door.” Qiao Tian Chang suddenly looked at Yang Cui and coldly warned her. These words were undoubtly hitting Yang Cui’s face in front of Ning Meng Yao.
She looked at Qiao Tian Chang in disbelief: “Big Brother Qiao, you actually help this woman?”
“We are not familiar so don’t call me that intimately. Even if she’s not here today, I will still say these to you. I don’t want to defile your innocence, also want you to not embarrass yourself.” Qiao Tian Chang coldly added, not giving the woman any face at all.
The words he spoke were like needles, directly piercing into Yang Cui’s heart.

"The aura of an ancestral artifact!" Someone's voice rose in surprise.
