He took hold of Liu Duo’s little hand and escorted her to the courtyard: “Duoer, this is Eldest brother and second brother. They just returned a short while ago.”
“Oh, hello eldest brother, second brother.” Liu Duo politely greeted.
Ye Yang’s a decently tall man, standing just shy of six foot. He had lightly tanned skin and beautiful facial features, though he has a scar on the right side of his face that looked a bit scary.
The second brother, Ye Liu, was just about as tall as Ye Yang with a bit of a stocky build. His face stood out the most beautiful among the four brothers.
Ye Yang looked at the delicate Liu Duo and only responded with a ‘Hmm,’ and no more, before going back to work plucking a pheasant.
Ye Liu looked at Liu Duo from top to bottom, and jokingly said with a whistle: “Hey there, lazy sow. You’re finally willing to get up!”
“…” Liu Duo’s mouth twitched, this second brother, how could he act like such a hooligan?
Having said hello, Liu Duo went back inside to pick up the menstrual pad Ye Ling sewed together.
Ye Yang brought back eight pheasants, three rabbits, and a hundred pound wild boar.
The four brothers plucked the pheasants in a snap, leaving only a few long feathers in the tails were left, which made it easy to distinguish the pheasant and the chickens.
When Liu Duo came out, she saw the brothers busy with the wild boar, and proceeded on her usual trek to the well.
“Duo’er, breakfast is on the table, you can go ahead and eat.” Ye Ling was always the easiest to get along with. Even if he was busy, he’s still take thought of Liu Duo.
“Oh. Thank you, fourth brother.”
Ye Ling’s peaceful personality made her very happy.
One after the next, people came to the Ye household to buy wild game. Not only was it cheap here, they also didn’t have to go all the way into town.
“Eldest Ye, you’ve had a bountiful harvest. I’ll buy two pheasants to bring back, I haven’t eaten meat for quite a while,” a man came to the courtyard and said.
“Yeah, me too. I’ll take some of that pork.”
Liu Duo was quietly eating breakfast under the awning. Ye Yang and Ye Mo were still deal with the boar, Ye Liu was fiddling with a scale, and finally, Ye Ling was in charge of money.
Small animals such as pheasants and rabbits are all five copper per pound, while wild pork was ten. Once again, it’s even more in town.
“Here are your two pheasants. They weigh eight and a half pounds, but we can let you have them for forty.” Ye Ling said, handing the pheasants over to the villager called Wang Erge.
“Well, thank you,” he said, paying Ye Ling and turning to leave.
After collecting the money, Ye Ling counted it and said: “Please be careful on your way.”
They’re all from the same village, and there are few who are given discounts, but Ye Ling doesn’t count.
Those waiting for pork were still chatting in the courtyard, as Ye Yang still wasn’t finished butchering it.
“Ye brothers, is that the wife San Bo brought to you? She’s quite a beauty,” a villager couldn’t help but say when he saw her.
Some people added: “Yeah, she’s indeed a little beauty.”
The Ye brothers having bought a wife wasn’t a grand occasion or anything, but as they all know each other, they had to inquire about a new face.
“A pity she’s such a little thing, you guys will have to go easy on her.”
Eldest kept his mouth shut in the face of the villagers’ jabs, while Ye Liu continued smiling.
“No need to worry about that. For three pounds of pork, that’ll be 30 copper,” he jokingly replied.
Ye Ling, red as a beet, kept quiet as he collected their money.
