Liu Duo glanced at their entwined hands, thinking with a slight smile: This young man is worth teaching.
When they arrived at the vegetable field, they saw Ye Mo weeding the grass, shoveling weeds into the basket with quick movements.
Ye Liu came out with a bucket of dung he used to fertilize the field before watering.
“Fourth brother, what brings you out here?” Ye Liu approached, being the first to see them.
Hearing Ye Liu, Ye Mo looked up, glanced at Liu Duo meaningfully, and continued about his work.
“I brought Duo’er to familiarize herself with our land.”
“That’s good,” said Ye Liu, setting down the dung bucket, as he took a long scoop and spread it over the roots.
Ye Ling moved to Ye Mo’s side to help weed, while Liu Duo observed. Before long, she crouched beside Ye Ling and also began pulling weeds.
She felt very strange not being able to pull weeds. She’d give a hefty pull, but was unable to force out the roots. She felt she wasn’t doing it right, but after several attempts, she was able to grasp the essentials.
Liu Duo smiled deeply as her and Ye Ling’s pace began to quicken.
“Duo’er, take a break. No need to tire yourself out.” Ye Ling was reluctant to make Liu Duo work.
Liu Duo was about to answer when Ye Mo snorted: “It’s not like she’s the daughter of some rich family who’s never worked in her life. What’s there to be wore out over?”
Looks like the mad dog’s off his leash again! Liu Duo looked at Ye Mo.
She wasn’t really tired, but her legs were numb. and her waist a bit sore. She stood up and patted the mud on her hands: “I am rather tired, What of it?”
For god’s sake, why did he always have to go up against her?
“Well?” Liu Duo glared at him.
“Well, what? We’re not done here!”
“A big man with a woman’s tongue. What a foul mouth you have.” Liu Duo said as she got up and walked off the field.
Ye Mo stood up and quickly rushed to Liu Duo’s side, grabbing her hand: “Where do you think you’ going? You have some nerve to take off with us here!”
Being pulled by Ye Mo, Liu Duo felt her hand about to snap. And for him to actually say she was running again, she was furious.
She turned and said: “If there’s something wrong with your head, then go get checked out! My name is registered under the Ye family, where would I run!?”
Ye Mo was left frozen.
Ye Ling was busy picking up the dung bucket on the other side of the field, and couldn’t hear everything. He only heard Liu Duo yell while Ye Mo pulled on her.
He’s aware of his third brother’s bad temper, but for him to treat her like that… This is exactly what he was afraid of. He quickly dropped the bucket and ran over to them.
“Third brother, you have to let go. You’re strong, and might hurt her! Duo’er wants to go to the side to rest, not escape,” Ye Ling urged, afraid Ye Mo would beat her.
Liu Duo’s words made Ye Mo’s muddled head clear, “Right, her name is in the family register.”
The approaching Ye Liu heard Ye Ling. Frowning, he pulled Ye Mo: “Third brother, have you forgotten what I told you? Apologize to Xiao Duo!”
Ye Liu’s eyes were serious, but he does not want to lose face and apologize.
She shoved away Ye Mo’s hand and opened her sleeves. There were five fingerprints showing how much strength Ye Mo grabbed her with.
