Chapter 485 - 485 She Was Actually His Younger Sister?
485 She Was Actually His Younger Sister?
Jiang Xiaoran complained endlessly.
“Why are the two of you bullying me together?! Ahhh, I really won’t be able to clear my name even if I jump into the river. When I find this flower thief, I’ll give him a harsh beating!”
When the man who was queuing up to buy pastries outside heard this, he paused.
He pressed down his hood to cover his face and turned to leave quietly.
After a while, a young monk in a kasaya came again.
This time, Kongjue was here to return Gu Nuo’er’s plate.
He walked into the shop and nodded slightly at Gu Nuo’er, saying ‘amitabha’.
“Thank you for your kindness, Benefactor. This poor monk is here to return the plate.”
After saying that, he handed it to Gu Nuo’er with both hands.
Gu Nuo’er blinked her black eyelashes, her gaze lively and cute.
“Brother monk, you don’t have to return it. I’ve already given it to you!”
The child looked down and saw that this young monk’s kasaya had been washed so much that its color had turned lighter and it looked old.
However, it gave off a clean and tidy feeling.
The monk’s neither servile nor overbearing attitude made people think even more highly of him.
Even the plate that was returned was washed until they were shining.
However, the straw shoes he was wearing were stained with a lot of mud.
He must have walked a long way to return the plate.
Kongjue recited a Buddhist proclamation. “Benefactor has already given me a favor. This poor monk mustn’t accept the plate anymore.”
After saying that, Kongjue bowed and prepared to leave.
Gu Nuo’er quickly said, “Monk older brother, wait for me!”
She quickly ran into the backyard kitchen.
She had Auntie Qu help her pack two bags of snacks that had just been cooked.
Gu Nuo’er carried the small bag and tiptoed to give it to Kongjue.
She narrowed her eyes and smiled cutely.
“Monk older brother, come, take this and eat. Buddha said that it is fate for people to meet. This is the second time we’ve met. This time, you don’t have to worry about returning the plate!”
Kongjue refused to accept it and felt even more embarrassed.
He had specially come to return the plate. Would this young girl think that he was here to ask for something to eat again?
However, although Kongjue was unwilling to accept it, Gu Nuo’er was very insistent.
Kongjue pursed his lips, a hint of difficulty flashing in his delicate eyes.
Their pastries were indeed delicious and Shuyi and Shu’er liked them very much.
Kongjue thought about it and reached out to take the pastries.
However, when he turned around, he picked up the broom leaning against the corner and helped Gu Nuo’er clean the entranceway bit by bit.
There wasn’t much he could do, but he couldn’t accept other people’s kindness for nothing.
Jiang Xiaoran couldn’t help but sigh. “Looks like this monk is really into diligent cultivation.”
Gu Nuo’er pouted and nodded. “He’s much better than those big liars in the palace!”
Ye Siming didn’t have a good impression of monks.
He only glanced at Kongjue before looking away.
Ning Chudie watched for a while before turning to ask Gu Nuo’er, “Princess, do you want me to stop him?”
Gu Nuo’er shook her head and sat on a stool, swinging her small feet.
“Let him sweep for a while before telling him to stop. Otherwise, with this monk older brother’s personality, he will definitely think of ways to repay us.”
Kong Jue quietly swept the floor. Even the surrounding customers who were queuing up to buy pastries looked at him strangely.
Suddenly, he heard someone whispering to each other—
“A few days ago, I heard from my father that the emperor had a nightmare and the little princess was being pestered by a demon fox. Those wandering monks in the capital recommended the emperor to send the little princess to Heavenly Mountain! I thought this shop was going to be closed too!”
“That’s right! I heard about it too. I’m just afraid that I won’t be able to eat the pastries from this place in the future. However, look at the little princess. Her emotions don’t seem to have been affected. The emperor might be reluctant to part with her, right?”
The broom in Kongjue’s hand suddenly fell to the ground.
He looked back at the shop.
Gu Nuo’er was talking to Ye Siming with a sweet smile.
She was actually his younger sister?
