Chapter 56: Disgusting!

Gu Qingming did not care about Boss Liu’s arrival at all.

When she got home, she washed her hands and feet and rinsed her sandals.

Yes, those were a pair of sandals that cost more than 10,000 dollars.
Not only did she wear them to stomp on the ground covered in mud, but they were also washed casually.

If someone who was knowledgeable saw this, they would definitely say that it was a waste of resources.

That was the life of the rich!

There was a well in the front yard of Eldest Uncle’s house.
Eldest Uncle had installed a pump and a water tower on the roof of the villa.

Usually, when washing hands, one would turn on the pump first and pump the water from the well into the water tower.
The well was warm in winter and cool in summer.

The water in the water tower only changed according to the weather and temperature.

To the villagers that it was very convenient to use cold water in summer and warm water in winter.

Therefore, the well was not completely sealed.
The water came out directly by when one pumped it with an artificial handle or turned on the pump and faucet.

In short, it was very convenient to access water.

boxn ovel.

Gu Qingming took a sip of well water and exclaimed, “This well water is cool and sweet.”

It was especially comfortable to wash her hands and feet.

Eldest Aunt was killing chickens and plucking chicken feathers in the courtyard.

To kill a chicken, one had to first remove a portion of the chicken’s feathers from its neck.
Then, one had to cut its throat with a knife and grab both its feet.
The chicken was then inverted to drain its blood.
When the chicken was dead when it stopped moving.

Then, the chicken was doused in hot water that had just been boiled.
It would be so hot that one could pull out all the chicken’s feathers.

When plucking the chicken feathers, the ground was lined with a snakeskin bag.
This way, the ground wouldn’t be covered in chicken feathers and dirty.

When her aunt heard Gu Qingming’s words, she smiled and said, “Everyone says that our well water is really delicious.”

After Gu Qingming took a sip of the sweet well water, she saw her aunt plucking chicken feathers.
The two little fellows were squatting beside her aunt and watching her pluck chicken feathers.

When Shi Jiahao saw a very big chicken feather, he looked very excited.
He shouted, “Grandma, chicken feather, very big chicken feather!”

With that, he was about to make a grab for the chicken feather.

The child was very curious.

Every time they killed chickens and ducks here, these children would watch from the side and shout from time to time.

His aunt immediately shouted, “You’re not allowed to take it.
The chicken feathers are very dirty!”

Shi Jiahao’s crisp and tender laughter sounded.

“Haha, this chicken feather is fun.
It flew away as soon as I blew on it.”

First Aunt was instantly angry and helpless.

She scolded jokingly, “You little monkey, every time I pluck chicken feathers, you play with chicken feathers.
You have to play with chicken feathers until they are all over your body.
Alright, stop playing.
Hurry up and bring Aunt back to the house to sit.
It’s hot here.
Don’t heat Aunt up.”

This was also the first time Gu Qingming had seen someone kill a chicken and pluck its feathers.

However, she did not know if it was because she was not used to it, but as soon as she came to the ground, she felt nauseous.

She instantly covered her mouth and ran towards the bathroom.

When Eldest Aunt saw this, she immediately put down the work in her hand.
However, when she saw her dirty and chicken-feathered hands, she immediately shouted, “Xiaoyu, Xiaoyu, come out for a while.”

Xiaoyu was her aunt’s eldest daughter-in-law.

His eldest daughter-in-law, Zhou Xiaoyu, walked out of the kitchen wearing an apron.
As she wiped her hands with the apron, she asked, “Mom, what’s wrong?”

His aunt said, “Your sister is vomiting in the bathroom now.
Go take a look.”

“Okay!” Zhou Xiaoyu replied as she walked in that direction.

Gu Qingming only felt nauseous and did not vomit.

“Sister, are you alright?” Zhou Xiaoyu asked with concern.
She glanced at her expression and saw that there was no change.

She said with some relief, “It’s normal to have these reactions during pregnancy.
You don’t have to worry.
As long as you don’t vomit badly, you don’t need to see a doctor.
Generally speaking, when a woman is 13 or 14 weeks pregnant, the symptoms will slowly decrease or even disappear.”

At this point, she thought for a moment and said, “However, some people vomit because they feel nauseous when they eat some kind of food.
They could range from sour to spicy food.
Some people will curse even when they smell onions.
I wonder which foods are safe for you.”

Gu Qingming thought for a moment and said, “Sister-in-law, I might not have vomited due to pregnancy.
Instead, I saw Aunt killing chickens and plucking feathers.
I felt disgusted by the smell.”

Zhou Xiaoyu understood what was going on.

When dealing with the chickens, the smell was indeed unpleasant.
Sometimes even she felt like vomiting when she smelled it, let alone her cousin, who had always lived a good life in the big city.

Zhou Xiaoyu smiled and said, “Oh, so that’s what happened.
Speaking of which, the smell is indeed unpleasant during the process of killing chickens and dealing with chicken feathers.
I smell it from time to time and feel nauseous.
Sister, are you still feeling nauseous? Why don’t I pour you a cup of sour plum soup? It can relieve your nausea.”

Gu Qingming nodded and said, “Yes, sorry to trouble you, Sister-in-law.”

After Zhou Xiaoyu left, Gu Qingming confirmed that the nausea was not a symptom of pregnancy but she was just put off by the smell.

After drinking the spiritual spring water in the space yesterday, even the symptoms of frequent urination could be alleviated.
As mentioned by the little fairy, nausea and vomiting symptoms should not appear again.

After walking out of the bathroom, Gu Qingming washed her hands on the sink and drank two mouthfuls of spring water before finally feeling much better.

However, she didn’t go too close to where her aunt dealt with the chicken feathers.

When the two little fellows saw Gu Qingming come out, their faces were a little pale and they looked a little worried.

They asked with concern in a very sincere and young voice, “Aunt, are you alright?”

Gu Qingming looked at the clear and concerned eyes in their eyes and shook her head with a smile.
“Don’t worry, Aunt is fine.
I just feel put off by the smell of chicken.
If I don’t get close now, I’ll be fine if I can’t smell it.”

When her aunt heard this, she picked at the chicken feathers faster and said, “Then don’t get too close.
After cleaning up these internal organs, I’ll spray some flower dew lotion to get rid of the smell.
Otherwise, it’ll be very difficult for the smell to dissipate.

In the countryside, many people used flower dew lotion to repel mosquitoes, especially after the mosquitoes bit them.
After applying flower dew to their bodies, they would not be itchy.

They also used flower dew lotion to cover up some of the smell so that it wouldn’t be so unpleasant.

When Shi Junxuan heard this, he immediately said, “Grandma, I’ll go get the flower dew lotion.”

“Alright, go get it.
Be careful not to break the bottle,” her aunt instructed.

Gu Qingming asked in confusion, “Flower dew lotion?”

“Yes, it’s what we villagers call perfume,” Aunt said with a smile.

Gu Qingming was speechless.

Shi Junxuan ran over with a bottle.
As he ran, he shouted, “Grandma, I’ve brought the flower dew lotion.”
