Chapter 431 - 431 Horses
Although they were a little worried, Jiang Yue and Xue Yan did not look sick, so Liu Guixia and the others were not as anxious as before.
Jinshan and the others saw that there were no empty buckets for them to fetch water, so they sat at the table under the tree.
Jiang Yue and Xue Yan followed Liu Guixia and the others into the courtyard.
After a while, the ice requested by Lakshimi Restaurant and the Yan Manor was finally ready. The two large wooden boxes each contained 120 kilograms of ice, while the medium-sized wooden box contained 60 kilograms of ice. This 60 kilograms of ice was for the Yan Manor.
Xue Erfu and Xue Erfu carried a large wooden box and a medium-sized wooden box out, then tied them to an ox cart with Jinshan and the others outside the courtyard.
There were also a few small wooden boxes of popsicles tied to it.
After they were tied up, the other two ice delivery men were responsible for delivering the cart of ice, except for Jinshan.
The two of them drove the ox cart away to deliver two wooden boxes of ice to the town’s restaurant and the Yan Manor. The small wooden box of popsicles would also be set up for Xue Dagui and the others to sell.
There was still a large wooden box of ice in Lakshimi Restaurant. A horse carriage would arrive in a while, and this large wooden box of ice would be speedily sent to the county.
Xue Yifu and Xue Erfu brought out a large wooden box. This wooden box of ice was meant to be sent to the stall to be chiseled and sold. This large wooden box of ice was placed on the last ox cart.
There was also a bucket of sour plum juice on the ox cart, which was also sent to the stall.
Jinshan was the only one who could send the ox cart on his own.
“Xue Yan, Jiang Yue, you guys should go to town.” Xue Erfu shouted as he stood beside the ox cart.
“Okay,” Xue Yan replied. Then, he walked out of the house holding Jiang Yue’s hand. After Jiang Yue climbed onto the ox cart, he followed.
“Did you bring paper, ink, brush, and inkstone?” Xue Erfu asked worriedly.
“Sifu has already brought it. We don’t need to bring it.” Xue Yan said.
“Alright then,” Xue Erfu was relieved, but he was still worried. He said to Jinshan, “They ate a lot of raspberries today. Help me take care of them. If they feel uncomfortable, quickly send them to the Shen’s Medical Center. Xue Yan’s classmate’s father works there.
He’ll know what to do.”
Jinshan agreed. Then, he drove the ox cart and brought Jiang Yue and Xue Yan to the town.
After Jiang Yue and Xue Yan had left for a while, the carriage from Lakshimi Restaurant arrived. Xue Erfu and the others heard the sound of the carriage and knew that it was the people from Lakshimi Restaurant. They quickly carried a large wooden box out from the shade and loaded it onto the carriage, then tied it up.
They were in a hurry to send it to the county. Once they were tied up, the drivers immediately raised the whip and drove the horse to gallop. They moved much faster compared to an ox.
Xue Sanfu couldn’t help but take a second look at the horse that was running so fast it disappeared from his sight.
“You like horses?” Xue Erfu laughed. “After a few days, when our family has earned more money, we can ask Sifu to change the ox cart at home and buy a horse. That way, we can go to town faster in the future.”
The cold and aloof Xue Sanfu responded, “Okay.”
When Jiang Yue and Xue Yan were about to reach the town, they met the three people who were also responsible for delivering ice to the town with Sifu in the morning. Each of them was driving an ox cart back to the village.
The three of them were going back to the village to bring more ice over.
They were still making ice at home.
Because they had only hired six people to deliver the ice, they had originally wanted to split into groups of two. However, now that they had borrowed two more ox carts, they could only do it in groups of two if they could.
