Medical Princess - Chapter 500
Shao Wanru casually flipped through some offerings. There were some pastries that could not be placed long and they had to be replaced the next two days. The replaced pastries were considered to be blessed because they had been placed in front of Buddha. People from the mansion would replace them with new ones and take them back to share them with the people in the mansion.
As for those paper-made things like pavilions and towers, they would be burned when the religious rite was finished.
Those light-colored clothes would be donated to nuns in Yuhui Nunnery.
Some gold and silver jewelry to get good fortune and counteract evil force, just like those pairs of silver bracelets, would definitely be taken back. Even though these Childes and Misses couldn’t wear them now, they could still be put in the closet. It would be a great blessing to hand them down to their children in the future.
Shao Wanru was really curious. She picked up this to ask from time to time and touched another one to ask about it. Seeing this, the smile on the old maid’s face became vivid and the sweat on her face had dried. She followed Shao Wanru and answered questions gallantly.
It took about two hours for her to accompany Shao Wanru to walk around. The placement in the hall had almost been done. It was unknown when Pushan Nun and her two disciples, Huiqing and Huiming, had left.
Shao Wanru asked the old maid to do her own work, and she took Yujie to walk around casually.
A servant girl moved around with a few pieces of objects. It seemed that she couldn’t move them for the moment, so a nun in the nunnery helped to move them. The things around them were squeezed, and they didn’t notice that there was a plate of pastries on the side. With a clang, the plate of pastries fell to the ground heavily.
The plate where the pastries were placed broke into pieces.
The servant girl and the nun were shocked and took a few steps back. Then they knocked over several things. Fortunately, these things were not porcelain.
“Ah, what’s wrong with you? Why don’t you watch carefully? Why did you fall down?” The old supervisor maid rushed over in a hurry and said angrily while asking people to clean it up.
The servant girl was shocked and looked at Shao Wanru fearfully. She breathed a sigh of relief when she saw that Shao Wanru had not noticed her.
“Nanny, I… I will be careful next time!”
“Be careful next time? See what you have done? Get out and kneel at the door for two hours!” the supervisor said in a bad mood.
The servant girl did not dare to talk back. She put down the objects in her hands and walked to the door of the main hall, feeling wronged. She was about to kneel down.
“Kneel down on the other side. How can you kneel in front of the door?” the supervisor said angrily.
The servant girl wiped her tears and knelt to the side.
Although the nun in the Yuhui Nunnery was young, she seemed to be a clever one. She stepped back in a hurry, saw that the supervisor maid did not notice her, so she turned around and ran away.
She was not the servant of Duke Xing’s Mansion, so the supervisor couldn’t punish her and just turned a blind eye at this time.
“Fifth Miss, excuse me. You see, how careless this girl is. She made all these things fall out. Even Buddha would blame us then!”
The supervisor bowed to Shao Wanru.
Shao Wanru obeyed and stepped back, but she asked Yujie to fetch something. The collision just now knocked out the album that Huiming had shown her before.
She picked up the album and stood aside, looking at it carefully.
The old maid carefully asked a group of servant girls and old maids to clean up the things broken just now, and then she took the rest of the people out.
Immediately, the Buddha hall became quiet.
Yujie saw that Shao Wanru was reading carefully, so she immediately looked at the door and asked curiously, “Miss, do you want to put them in another way?”
“In the past, were there so many rules for the placement in Jingxin Monastery?” Shao Wanru glanced at Yujie.
Yujie thought for a moment and shook her head honestly. “Maybe the monastery in the capital city is much more exquisite than our Jingxin Monastery. We placed things there casually and had no albums of painting. Even if there are albums, there are not so many rules in the album.”
Yujie said as she pinched the album of painting and muttered to herself, “It must cost a lot to make such a good album of painting! Shouldn’t such a good album of painting be in the hands of the Master of Nunnery or the greeting nun? In any case, when Pushan Nun left just now, she should take this album of painting away!”
Shao Wanru’s hand paused. She suddenly stopped carefully reading the album of painting, lifted her head from the album and pulled its material. She was good at painting in both her last and present lives. She had studied paper, so how could she not know that this kind of paper was of great quality?
She was thinking just now that this album of painting was so vivid.
Now she knew that on one hand the artist had very good painting skills. On the other hand, it was because the material used for painting was very good.
Not only was the paper quite good, but the ink was also of the best quality.
Was the Yuhui Nunnery in the capital city so rich now?
Even so, it was impossible to do this outside in a glittering way. Every object and scenery in the Yuhui Nunnery was very beautiful, but it also followed the calm and indifferent standards of the nunnery in the former days. This album of painting was completely different from the usual style of Yuhui Nunnery.
She brought it to her nose and sniffed it. The smell of ink wafted through the air, which meant that it had not been a long time before being done. Could it be that it was newly made and coincidentally used by her mansion, and Pushan Nun specially brought it out to use?
“If Jingxin Monastery wants to make a magnificent object, do you think it will be their own use?” Shao Wanru held the album in her hand, and her watery eyes became serious with a trace of coldness flashing through. There was something wrong with this album.
“How could they use it! Even a Buddha statue, like a Buddha statue plated with golden light after the consecration, would be required by a pilgrim or given to an honored guest. It is impossible to be used by themselves!” Yujie shook her head repeatedly. She had stayed in Jingxin Monastery for a long time, so she had seen many things there, but she had never seen them use precious and gorgeous objects.
“Then, do you think that this is meant for me to flip through at will?” Shao Wanru lowered her head again and there was fleeting coldness in her eyes.
Be it the skill or material, the magnificent album with exquisite brush and ink was excellent work. But now it was thrown here so casually and happened to pop out. She had not seen it clearly just now, or she was still hesitating now. How could she not take it out and read it again when she saw such a book?
“Miss, put it away quickly!” Yujie said hurriedly, sweating on her forehead.
She understood what Shao Wanru meant!
“It’s too late!” Shao Wanru’s voice was gentle and graceful. Her eyes fell on the painting right in front of her. It was the “Ten Blessings As You Wish” that she had read again and again.
There were obvious stains on it, but they didn’t appear when she took to look through them just now.
“Dirty… Dirty? When did it happen?” Yujie was stunned and looked at the dirty red spots, and she suddenly stammered.
She had seen her Miss looking at it just now, but there was indeed no stain on it. When did it appear?
She looked up at Shao Wanru and found that there was no big red stain on her face. But where did these stains come from? If there was such a big red stain just now, she would definitely be able to see it clearly!
Shao Wanru picked up the album of painting and sent it to the middle of the wings of her nose. There was no other scent other than the paint in it, but it was in line with her guess. She slightly blinked and her watery eyes grew even darker. This album of painting was indeed prepared for her.
“Come on, let’s go out and have a look!” Shao Wanru closed the album of painting and said casually. Then she turned around and walked out.
“Miss, leave the album of painting first, otherwise someone will misunderstand.” Yujie was anxious.
“Even if I put it back now, many people will still accuse me of ruining this album of painting. There were not a few people who saw me picking it up to take a look, and some even especially looked at this as they walked past me. They definitely saw that the album of painting was clean,” Shao Wanru said as she walked.
This matter would not come to an end. She would like to see what on earth they were plotting, and what Duke Xing’s Mansion wanted to do!
Seeing her extremely peaceful appearance, Yujie was in a panic, but she still breathed a sigh of relief. Her Miss would have a solution. That was great!
Although Shao Wanru was young, Yujie had been with her for a long time, so she admired her more. Even if Yujie couldn’t understand Shao Wanru’s words for the moment, she would do her best to act accordingly as long as it was said by Shao Wanru.
The master and servant walked out of the hall one after the other in no hurry. They saw a group of people gathering outside the hall. They were not from Duke Ying’s Mansion. Most of them were pilgrims who had come to the Yuhui Nunnery. They gathered there and chattered about something. Shao Wanru and Yujie could not hear clearly from afar, and they could only hear them saying “Poor!”
“This is still in front of the temple. They punish her in such a way, aren’t they afraid of being punished?”
“Yes, this little girl is really pitiful. She is punished to kneel here at such a young age. If her family could survive, no one would like to send their child to this mansion…”
There were all kinds of words, and of course they had no good meanings.
Yujie suddenly had a bad feeling. She reached out and pointed to the crowd, and then to the temple. She was shocked and stammered, “Is, is this the servant girl who broke the thing inside?”
Shao Wanru’s eyes fell on the crowd. She couldn’t see what was in the crowd from her position, but when Yujie asked, she nodded with a cold smile and said affirmatively, “It must be that servant girl.”
“Why, why! It was the old maid who punished her, but she was left here and it looked as if she was punished by Miss!” Yujie reached out to point outside and then inside. After thinking for a while, she flew into a rage.
“Why? Because I’m the master here, and the only master. Shouldn’t I be responsible for what happened to the servants?”
Shao Wanru smiled as she walked out of the room.
“Miss, please wait a moment and wear a veil!” Yujie took out a veil from her sleeve.
Shao Wanru stood still, and Yujie skillfully helped her wear the veil.
An album of painting and a servant girl. Just waited to see how they would deal with these. Or not just these? There were also silver bracelets, longevity lock, and that set of locked clothes…
The corners of her beautiful lips raised up slightly. Her lively but charming eyes were as cold as ice. It was such a big scene…
