“Another thing, I’ve seen the girl once and she’s very pretty. With the genes of you brothers, your future children won’t look bad,” San Bo added.
They wanted a wife, so they nodded and agreed. Since her family took the initiative to offer Liu Duo, they bought her.
They promised to treat her well, yet she turned tail and tried to get away. He couldn’t stop himself from raising his hand against her, but ended up the beaten one instead.
“Was I wrong?” Ye Mo muttered to himself. He treated her so badly, yet she acted as if nothing happened.
Ye Liu laughed as Liu Duo returned to her seat: “Xiao Duo, I keep telling you not to bother with him. He needs to own up to his mistakes!”
“Would it kill you to not run your mouth while we’re eating?” Liu Duo glanced at him.
The scoundrel happily said, pushing his bowl toward her for a hint: “If Xiao Duo were to feed me, I’ll be a good boy~”
She grabbed a piece of meat and pushed it toward his mouth: “Eat up then, big talker!”
Ye Liu happily chewed in satisfaction: “Since Xiao duo is offering, how can I not indulge?”
Liu Duo had come to find herself starting to warm up to his shameless snarks.
The three happily ate, when Ye Mo made his way in. Ye Ling went to the kitchen to get a bowl for him. In spite of what happened, he’s still their brother. They can’t hold it against him forever.
“Who’s this rough looking guy? You know him?” Ye Liu asked, shoveling food into his mouth.
Liu Duo kept herself from laughing. That’s third brother, you know?
“If you’ll excuse me, I’m full.” Liu Duo set down her chopsticks and left.
Ye Mo’s mouth twitched, his expression becoming dejected. Am I so beat up I no longer look like your third brother anymore? Does second brother need to be that hard on me?
“Third brother, eat or it’ll get cold,” Ye Ling said, handing him his chopsticks.
Ye Mo wanted to laugh a little, but thought of Liu Duo’s chuckling face, causing his anger to flare up again. I was beaten like this because of you!
Sensing Ye Mo’s anger, Ye Liu set down his chopsticks, and called him with a solemn look: “Ye Mo, if this happens again, I really will kick you out! We can manage if needs be. As for Xiao Duo, she is not to be treated badly around here. If you happen to find another wife, we’ll compensate you for your help in taking care of fourth brother. Eldest brother may be away, but he’d agree.”
Ye Liu was Infuriated, to call him by name. He thought after a night out he might change. If anything though, he seems to have turned out worse.
If he goes, will they “round the room” later? Just thinking about it made Ye Mo grit his teeth.
Second brother had never called him by name; Ye Mo could see he wouldn’t tolerate anymore.
