Chapter 2: I’m not running!
Translated by: NekoCat
“What’s wrong, you’re still not done? Tell me,” Ye Ling said, knocking on the door.
Rubbing the numb spots on her thigh and calf, Liu Duo gave up. After all, she couldn’t just sit here and wait it out.
“Why don’t you go and help me find a woman to come over? I need someone now!”
Having heard that, he knew he couldn’t do it, and give her another opportunity to escape.
“No. I can’t leave, lest you run away. Wife, my brothers will be good to you, so will you stop running? Come on out.”
Liu Duo’s face twitched, how can she run with numb legs and her period giving her trouble? With no women or toilet paper around, she was at a loss for what to do.
“Fourth brother, you can rest assured that I’ll never run. I need a woman now, or I won’t be able to come out. Am I supposed to just stay in here?”
“But… But, if I go look, and come back to find you gone, how do I explain it to my brothers?” Ye Ling hesitated, afraid that Liu Duo would run away.
Liu Duo was furious. Even if she ran and ran, where can she go? She knew nothing of this place. Besides, this ancient place also has an identity document, or what’s known as a proof of slavery, that can be used anywhere in the country.
When her grandmother sold her to the Ye brothers, her proof of slavery was given to them as well.
“Rest assured, I won’t run. It’s my great aunt, so I just need something. Hurry and go find a woman to help me,” she patiently explained, unable to do anything.
“Great aunt? Are your relatives coming?” Yesterday, when they delivered her, her family said they wouldn’t come see her.
“I’m going to lose it!” Liu Duo’s heart burned in a rage!
“Women always have a few days of menstrual flow every month, get it!? Do you understand!? If you understand, then hurry and find a woman or something to help me, because I can’t feel my legs anymore!!”
Finally understanding, Ye Ling’s face turned red. He coughed in an awkward manner and said, “Wait here for me then, I’ll find someone.”
Although there were no women at home previously, he understood the issue. Now that he had a wife in trouble, he really needed to go find San Nainai. She must have something to help his wife.
That night, he rushed out of the house and made his way to San Bo’s residence, all while Liu Duo had to stay squatted over the pit.
Heavily panting with his forehead covered in fine sweat, he hurriedly knocked on the door: “San Nainai! San Nainai! Open the door! It’s me, Ye Ling.”
“Come come, fourth child. What’s wrong?”
When she heard the call, the 60 or 70 year old grandmother quickly came out.
“Please, it’s… it’s my wife, she’s…”
Hearing wife, San Nainai panicked. Didn’t they only buy her yesterday morning; now she’s run off?
“Oh my! Did she run off again? Let’s go to the village head and get someone to help find her!”
“Even if she didn’t want this, her grandmother sold her to us, so she’s yours now. But you all need to be nice to her so she won’t be in a hurry to go anywhere. We can’t afford to lose her again, you hear?”
I swear this, this translation got a lot better because of Galooza. A big thank you!
