Chapter 463: Lowly Profession

Ever since a large workshop and a school was built, Yang Zhi no longer headed to study in the town but instead studied in the school near home.

Ning Meng Yao immediately understood after hearing it: “How is Zhi’er’s studies?” They had met Yang Zhi when Qing Shuang got married, that child had already grown a head taller at that time, he was also more stable. But he was after all still a child, he would forget everything once he started playing.

There was a smile on Yang Zhu’s face when he talked about it: “The teacher said that Zhi’er is really clever and learns very quickly, he even said that he could take the examination two years later.”

Ning Meng Yao understood after hearing what he said, it seems Yang Zhi was really not bad, or else the teacher would not say such words, he had the potential to be an official.

”I’m at ease. Uncle Yang, we’ll be heading to the other uncles’ house and won’t be staying,” Ning Meng Yao stood up and got ready to leave.

”Come over to join us for a meal later,” Yang Zhu looked at them and said firmly.

Ning Meng Yao and Qiao Tian Chang looked at each other, they knew Yang Zhu was being serious. It wouldn’t be polite to refuse, so they nodded their heads and agreed to it: “Alright, we’ll come over after we finish sending the gifts.”

”Then hurry and go.”

News of Ning Meng Yao and Qiao Tian Chang’s return was quickly spread throughout the whole village. Yang Huai stood at the door and looked at Ning Meng Yao’s big belly, he was feeling uncomfortable in his heart. As for his mother, Madame Chen, she was reminded of her deceased daughter. Madame Chen couldn’t stop the bitterness in her heart when she thought of her daughter.

”So what if they are back, is there a need for such great fanfare? Really shameless,” Madame Chen muttered in dissatisfaction.

No matter how dissatisfied Madame Chen felt towards Ning Meng Yao, she might also really wish to strangle her to death, but she did not dare to say anything more when she thought of more than half the people in the village working in her workshop.

If she really did it, she would definitely cause public outrage and attract everyone’s anger.

It was not something she wished to see.

It was not known what Yang Huai was thinking, seeing Ning Meng Yao and the others walking over, he walked over with curious coincidence: “You’re back.”

Ning Meng Yao looked at Yang Huai as if she was looking at a monster. Their relationship was not so close, right? Oh, their relationship could be said to be quite bad, they had argued seriously in the past.

”Yao Yao, let’s leave,” Qiao Tian Chang glanced at Yang Huai, he basically did not place that person in his eyes.


Only allowed on

Yang Huai clenched his fist tightly, he was filled with hatred, why was this woman looking down on him?

”Ning Meng Yao, do you think you are so great all because you have that little bit of money? Among the four occupations[1], commerce is the lowest profession,” Yang Huai also did not know what happened to himself, he just did not wish for Ning Meng Yao to ignore him.

Ning Meng Yao turned her head to look at Yang Huai: “If I recall correctly, your elder brother is operating a business. Your brother is the one who supported your studies, you look down on your older brother who paid for your studies?”

Wasn’t his words slapping himself in the face? There was someone in his family doing business and he actually said commerce is the lowest profession. It was not known what his elder brother and sister-in-law would think if they found out?

Yang Huai’s heart turned cold: “I’m not talking about my elder brother.”

”Could it be that your elder brother is not into commerce?” Ning Meng Yao raised her eyebrows.

Qiao Tian Chang felt impatient seeing Ning Meng Yao talking to an unknown man, he said: “Yao Yao, we still have many things to do, what’s the point saying so much this such trash?”

”Qiao Tian Chang, have more respect in your words, I am a scholar,” Compared to Ning Meng Yao, Yang Huai hated Qiao Tian Chang even more, especially when he was being impatient and disdainful.

”There’s no one who doesn’t know you are a scholar. You can’t carry any burden and can’t even hold anything, what qualifications does a man who still relies on his family to feed him have to be arrogant in front of us” Qiao Tian Chang did not look down on scholars, only scholars who were too pedantic and had the thoughts of oneself being superior.

”Tian Chang, let’s go, I wonder what is the point of showing off the identity of a scholar,” She had even met the Emperor, why would she be afraid of a scholar?

[1] The four occupations were an occupation classification used in ancient China by either Confucian or Legalist scholars as far back as the late Zhou dynasty and is considered a central part of the fengjian social structure (c. 1046–256 BC). These were the shi (gentry scholars), the nong (peasant farmers), the gong (artisans and craftsmen), and the shang (merchants and traders).
