Ye Mo was livid. To tell him to find a new wife; they knew that wasn’t happening!
When their parents died, they vowed to take one wife for the four of them and live together as a loving family.
Problem was, Ye Ling’s condition had worsened over time, so much so that their expenses increased by half. They couldn’t even afford an infantile wife without selling their property. Thanks to Sanbo’s help in lending them money, however, they were able to.
Ye Mo felt his brothers had changed recently; they weren’t the types to betray their vow.
“That little bitch is my wife, and yours!” he pointed at Liu Duo, shivering in anger.
“She was your wife, not is. Now she’s only a wife to us three!” Ye Liu rushed to take Liu Duo inside the house without sparing Ye Mo a look.
Do you expect everyone to just go along with your outrageous behavior? Xiao Duo hates it! Ye Liu thought to himself.
Ye Yang and Ye Ling followed, leaving Ye Mo to reflect: ‘‘Remember something, we brothers take care of our wife!”
Ye Mo was too angry to talk as he watched them walk away. With a kick, he huffed and ran out.
Silence loomed in the kitchen while the four worked. Ye Liu kept the fire going while Ye Yang cooked stir fry. Ye Ling would occasionally lend a hand, and Liu Duo watched on from the side.
With dinner done and Ye Mo still not back, Liu Duo started to worry: “Eldest brother, he’s still gone. Where do you think he went?”
“Why bother with him? He’s a grown man, he can take care of himself,” Ye Liu replied without a care.
Raised his sword-like eyebrows, he snidely continued: “If it was Xiao Duo who was out late, however, I’d be out all night if I had to!”
“Third brother will return, Duo’er. Don’t you worry.” Ye Ling comforted her.
“…” Ye Yang remained silent while looking up at the sky.
At nightfall, Ye Mo was still gone. An oil lamp was lit as they set to wash up for the night. After washing, Liu Duo made her usual trip to the well. Upon returning, she went and sat on the bed in a daze.
Ye Liu also finished and made his way in. He walked towards the bed and bent over while looking up at her: “Too worried to sleep?”
“Is he not coming back?” Liu Duo asked.
“Troublesome man. If he can’t find some way to let go, he’ll never get anywhere,” he said, standing up to get undressed for the night.
Liu Duo nodded in agreement before yelling at the sight in front of her: “Wh- What are you stripping for!?”
“To go to sleep, what else?” he retorted, figuring it should be obvious.
“You don’t have to go buck naked!” Liu Duo turned her eyes away.
“Who said anything about going nude, I’ve still got my trousers on! Of course I wouldn’t go nude, unless… you want me to… Xiao Duo~” he said, changing his tone midway.
“Sh- Shameless scoundrel!” she yelled, grinding her teeth.
Deciding not to argue with him anymore, she untied her hair, letting it tumble down her back. Slipping off her day wear, she wrapped herself up for the night, back to Ye Liu.
