Qi RongYue smiled, “Naturally, we need to find an inn first. After we rest, then we can do other things.” She saw that Xue’er’s eyes were on the street stall selling meat buns and she kept swallowing saliva.
“Do you want to eat?” she asked.
Xue’er nodded, “I want!” She touched her stomach. After walking all night, she only had half of a millet pancake. Now, smelling the meat bun’s fragrance, her saliva was about to drool out.
“Buy it if you want to eat it!” She smiled and pulled Xue’er to the street stall. She bought two big meat buns and a mantou.
Xue’er saw her Xiaojie handed the two meat buns over to her. She was startled, “Xiaojie, you’re not eating the meat buns?”
Qi RongYue shook her head, “I don’t like them. You eat. I prefer the mantou.”
Muhou [Imperial Mother] was from the north and loved foods made from wheat flour. Buns and mantous often appeared in Muhous’s palace. The fresh meat buns Muhou made had even Fuwang [Imperial Father] who was accustomed to the royal chef’s cooking, full of praises.
She would never again taste Muhou’s meat buns again!
Half a day later, Qi RongYue and Xue’er left the city on a carriage rented from the inn. The carriage driver was also borrowed from the inn. They were two women alone. If they randomly sought a carriage driver, they might encounter villains instead. Borrowing from the inn was the best choice.
“Xiaojie, where are we going?” Xue’er was asleep but was pulled dazedly into the carriage. Now she couldn’t tell left from right.
“Why are we going to Wuyuan?” Xue’er was puzzled.
She moved the carriage’s curtain aside and looked at the snow outside. It was snowing! That year when she left the Palace to seek a master at Wushan, it was snowing like this too. Millions of snowflakes floated in the sky!
