Lying motionless on a wood bed, Liu Duo was staring at the roof, absorbing the memory of the body she now possesses.
This body belonged to a 15 year old, also called Liu Duo, who was sold off to be married to the four brothers of the Ye family by her vicious grandmother.
Amidst her getaway, she fell and lost consciousness, and suddenly disappeared?
Then she, while plagued by cancer, was tortured for seven or eight years before finally regaining her freedom at the age of 25, yet she didn’t expect God would grant her a new life.
Having been born again in a healthy body, Liu Duo was very happy. The thought of not needing daily medications anymore made her smile.
Feeling the need to go, Liu Duo turned over, put on her shoes, and headed out the door.
Ye Ling was in the kitchen, holding a bowl of porridge. Seeing Liu Duo come out, he moved forward: “Ah, you’re up. Are you hungry? Here, eat something.”
Liu Duo knew that this was one of the four brothers, Ye Ling, who was 19 years old this year. He was a handsome man who stood at 5’7, although fairly thin.
She wasn’t terribly hungry, but the sound of her stomach grumbling was kind of embarrassing. “I am a bit hungry. but I need to go to the toilet first.”
“The toilet? What’s a toilet?”
Ye Ling looked a little cute with his confused face.
“A toilet. Ah, hehe, I need to relieve myself,” Liu Duo explained with a smile, forgetting she was back in ancient times.
She’s so beautiful! Ye Ling thought, blushing as he looked at his wife’s smiling face.
“Mm, go ahead,” he said, staggering his way to the table, that sat under the eaves of the roof, to set down a bowl.
“Okay.” Liu Duo found her way to a few side shacks with the help of the previous host’s memories.
She still didn’t know her way around.
She sat on a stool under the eaves and looked at the shacks. Were it not for Ye Ling’s leg problems, and having to take medicine year round, their family wouldn’t be so poor…
Liu Duo, urinating in a pit with her pants partway down, suddenly felt a pain in her lower abdomen. Once a woman of 25, it was obvious what was going on.
“I’m reborn just in time for my great aunt? What did I do to deserve this?” Liu Duo was extremely depressed. What should I do? How can I go out now?
(Note: Great aunt = period)
Ten minutes passed, Liu Duo thought hard about what to do. What’s taking her so long? Ye Ling started to frown.
He went and knocked on the door: “What’s taking you so long? Are you alright?”
Liu Duo’s turned red in embarrassment, while her legs had gone numb.
“That… that…” Liu Duo grabbed her hair, trying to think what she should say.
“Dear?” Ye Ling was a little anxious. After all, this was the wife they paid 22 silver for.
Most of the silver they used to buy a wife was loaned from San Bo. After all, their family couldn’t pull together 22 silver. Most of the money his brothers earned was used for him. The rest was barely enough to scrape by.
San Bo saw that others weren’t willing to marry their daughters into poverty, they can only buy a wife to birth descendants.
