Women in ancient times are so scary – chapter 5

The inn was bustling in the early morning, with almost every table in the downstairs hall occupied by groups of people.

However, there was one table by the window on the east side that had only a single woman in white sitting at it.

In contrast to her solitary table, the surrounding tables were filled with men.

Although these men appeared to be eating breakfast, their eyes frequently darted towards the woman in white.

It wasn’t because her breakfast was more sumptuous or delicious, nor because she was unusually ugly.

It was because she was extraordinarily beautiful, with crescent-shaped eyebrows, starry eyes, a delicate nose, and red lips with white teeth.

She looked like a fairy descended from the heavens.

Such a stunning woman was rare in the world.

Unfortunately, despite her beauty, she was not someone these men could approach.

When Han Rubing came downstairs from the second floor, she immediately saw her sister sitting alone at the table by the window.

Although the surrounding tables were full, no one dared to approach her sister’s table.

Han Rubing glanced at her sister’s icy expression, which could freeze someone to death, and smiled knowingly.

She then walked towards her sister’s table.

After sitting down, Han Rubing looked at her sister’s cold face and the almost untouched breakfast on the table.

“Why aren’t you eating? Is the inn’s breakfast not to your taste?”

she asked, sounding concerned about why her sister hadn’t eaten.

However, the teasing look on her face made one doubt her sincerity.

“Nothing, I just don’t feel like eating right now,” Han Rushuang replied expressionlessly, looking at her sister who was smiling teasingly at her.

“Oh, I see. Then have the waiter bring the breakfast to my room later. I have something to do and will be back soon. We can eat together then. You go wait in my room,” Han Rubing said.

“Alright,” Han Rushuang replied.

She then got up and headed towards the second floor.

“Oh, by the way, when you get to my room, wake up that little one who’s still sleeping,” Han Rubing added with a mischievous smile as she watched her sister head upstairs.

Han Rushuang didn’t look back, only responding with a sound of agreement before continuing upstairs.

Therefore, she didn’t see the mischievous smile on her sister’s face.

When she reached Han Rubing’s room on the second floor, she opened the door and walked in.

What did she see beyond the screen?

Han Rushuang was surprised but quickly returned to her expressionless state.

On the bed, hugging the quilt and sleeping without any decorum, was a naked girl.

Han Rushuang’s face turned slightly red, not because of anything else but because of the girl’s exposed tender skin and alluring curves.

As Meng Xiaoyu slept soundly, she seemed to sense something.

She frowned, shifted a bit, and then continued to sleep, completely unaware that she had been seen by two women while she slept.

Even if Meng Xiaoyu knew, given her personality, she would probably say, “So what if they saw? We’re all women, it doesn’t matter.”

Han Rushuang frowned slightly, thinking, “Does this person have no sense of danger at all? Sleeping so soundly without wearing anything. I’ve been watching her for a while, and she hasn’t noticed. If a man accidentally came in, who knows what would happen.”

This thought made Han Rushuang inexplicably angry, and her face became even colder.

Just as Meng Xiaoyu slept soundly and Han Rushuang felt inexplicably stifled, Han Rubing pushed the door open and came in.

“Hmm? You haven’t woken her up yet?”

she asked, seeing the scene before her.

The smile on her face was quite unsettling.

“You did this on purpose,” Han Rushuang said coldly, looking at her sister’s smiling face.

“Hmm? What are you talking about, Xiao Shuang? I don’t understand,” Han Rubing replied with a smile.

“She’s not wearing any clothes,” Han Rushuang said coldly.

“I know she’s not wearing any clothes. So what?”

Han Rubing replied.

“Nothing,” Han Rushuang said, walking out from behind the screen and sitting on a chair at the table in front, ignoring her sister.

Watching her sister walk out, Han Rubing smiled again and walked to the bed.

She bent down, placed her hand on the sleeping girl’s ear, and gently pinched it before twisting it hard.

“Ah~~ It hurts~~ Why are you pinching my ear?”

Meng Xiaoyu, awakened by the pain, sat up, covering her ear and tearfully questioning the person in front of her.

Looking at the girl in front of her, pouting and tearfully questioning her, Han Rubing felt a surge of affection and wanted to pinch her cheeks.

However, she only thought about it and didn’t act on it.

She just smiled and said, “It’s already late. Time to get up, little Meng Meng.”

“Huh? Has it been bright for a long time?”

Meng Xiaoyu asked in confusion.

Seeing the person who was still a bit groggy, Han Rubing smiled and nodded, “Yes, get up and have breakfast. We need to continue our journey soon.”

Upon hearing Han Rubing’s words, Meng Xiaoyu immediately got up.

She dressed quickly and went to wash up.

Life in ancient times was really inconvenient.

Take washing up, for example.

There wasn’t even toothpaste or a toothbrush, so she could only rinse her mouth with salt water.

Once they reached Fuyun City and had some time, she definitely needed to make a toothbrush.

Thinking of this, Meng Xiaoyu nodded to herself and continued washing her face.

After washing up, Meng Xiaoyu came to the table.

She saw the breakfast that the waiter had just brought and sat down next to Han Rubing, grabbing a bun and devouring it.

She had no regard for her image at all.

Han Rubing and her sister looked helplessly at the person wolfing down her food.

Why was she always in such a hurry when it came to breakfast?

Actually, it wasn’t Meng Xiaoyu’s fault; it was a habit she had developed.

Before she came here, Meng Xiaoyu would always wake up late in the morning.

If she didn’t eat breakfast quickly, she would definitely be late for school.

Her homeroom teacher had a rule: anyone who was late or left early more than three times would have to clean the classroom for a week and write a 2,000-word reflection.

So, in order to sleep in and not be late, she had to speed up her breakfast.

Over time, Meng Xiaoyu became extremely fast at eating breakfast.

Eating quickly naturally didn’t look good, and her mom once told the neighbor that when Xiaoyu ate breakfast, it was like she was possessed by a starving ghost.

Her speed could even apply for a Guinness World Record.

In just a few bites, she finished three buns and a bowl of porridge.

Meng Xiaoyu patted her stomach contentedly and looked at the still slowly eating Han Rubing and her sister.

“When are we leaving?”

she asked.

Han Rubing glanced at Meng Xiaoyu and said, “We’ll set off after breakfast. Do you have something to do?”

“Oh, I see. Can you wait for me for a bit? I need to go out for a while.”

“Sure, but be quick,” Han Rubing said, glancing at Meng Xiaoyu.

“No problem, I’ll be back soon,” Meng Xiaoyu replied happily.

She grabbed her small backpack and ran out.

Why did Meng Xiaoyu need to carry a small backpack just to buy some soy sauce in the morning?

It was actually one of her personal quirks.

The backpack was filled with her treasures, but what exactly those treasures were would be explained later.

Believing that treasures should be carried with her, Meng Xiaoyu always had her small backpack with her, except when she was at home.

Her parents were quite helpless about this.

Meng Xiaoyu left the inn and ran in the direction the waiter had pointed out.

She quickly reached her destination, the Donglai Pawnshop.

Why did Meng Xiaoyu come to a pawnshop?

As mentioned in the previous chapter, Meng Xiaoyu was determined to buy a mount because the journey was too long and walking was exhausting.

But she had no money, so she had to find a way to get some in town.

A pawnshop was the best choice; as long as it was something rare and valuable, it could be exchanged for money.

Why did Meng Xiaoyu have this understanding?

It was thanks to the time-travel dramas she had watched before.

Entering the pawnshop, she imitated the protagonist from a certain drama and shouted, “Is the shopkeeper here? I want to pawn something.”

“Yes, our shopkeeper is inside. Do you have something to pawn? Shall I call him for you?”

A clerk dressed in work clothes heard Meng Xiaoyu and quickly came out from behind the counter.

“Alright, go call your shopkeeper and tell him an important guest is here,” Meng Xiaoyu continued to imitate the protagonist from the drama.

“Okay, please wait a moment. I’ll call him right away,” the clerk said with a smile and ran to the inner hall to call the shopkeeper.

In no time, Meng Xiaoyu saw a middle-aged man in a blue robe, with a goatee and a small bun tied with a hairband, walk out.

He cupped his hands and said, “Is this the guest who wants to pawn something? What treasure do you have? Is it a dead pawn or a live pawn?”
