Chapter 37: Rage
Translated by: LazyPanda

The bystanders scattered after Liu Er Gouzi left. Liu Duo glanced at Liu LanShi and shook her head.
Seeing Liu Duo shaking her head, Ye Liu asked, “What’s the matter?”
“It’s nothing, let’s go back home.”
If she didn’t care enough about herself, will others do? If you don’t resist, no one can help you out. Simply pleading for perfection will only lead to death!
“Alright”, the two of them held hands and walked home.
When they got home, Liu Duo immediately went into the huts and changed her sanitary cloth. Her Great Aunt should be finished in another one or two days.
After washing it clean, she hung it on a rope.
She spotted Ye Ling sitting under the eaves patching some clothes. She walked over and sat down down beside him “Fourth Brother, you can also patch clothes?”. You’re really virtuous!
“Mn, Third Brother’s clothing got torn when he was cutting wood, but it can be reused after some patches”. His brothers clothes were all mended by him.
The clothes they wore were all patched again and again. As long as they can be mended, they will wear it again. They were reluctant to throw them away.
Looking at Ye Ling’s skilled movements, she couldn’t help but ask, “Fourth Brother, when did your parents died?”
There was no woman in the family so he had to learn needlework, and he’s also very skilled.
Liu Duo was distressed.
Ye Ling’s movement paused. No one mentioned his parents for a long time. That time, he was still small, but he could still remember it deeply.
After sewing the last stitch and cutting the thread. He slowly gazed at the sky and said, “Ten years, it’s been ten years.”
Ten years? That time, Eldest brother was only 15 years old, Second brother was 13 years old, third brother was 11 years old, and fourth brother was only 9 years old. Their childhood must be difficult. Without the companionship of their parents, how did they spend those years.
She can’t imagine it.
“I still remember, Father took Eldest brother to hunt at the mountain once and encountered an accident. In order to save brother, he fell into an animal trap. At that time, Eldest brother’s face was scratched as he ran back home with a face full of blood, asking second uncle and third uncle to help father, but they didn’t care. Even grandmother didn’t care.”
So the scar on big brother’s face was because of this.
“They said, there were many traps and beasts in the mountains and If by chance they helped out and couldn’t go back, It would be like throwing in people’s lives and it’s not worth it!.”
Liu Duo frowned, she was really angry.
“Later, it was Sanbo who helped find someone to bring father back, but father was already pierced in his chest by a wooden stake inside the trap.”
After a pause, his voice choked a little, he then continued and said, “Father was only gone for three days, but uncles immediately urged grandmother to separate us.
Mother was often short of breath and couldn’t handle anger. Father have died and it was already a big hit for her, but grandmother still treated us like that, later on, mother died because of anger.”
‘That should be a heart disease!’ Liu Duo frowned, what kind of shit is this? Just after his Eldest son died, they already wanted to separate them, angering her own daughter-in-law to death?
“Why is your grandmother and uncles, suddenly wanted to separate you? Are they still human?”, Liu Duo asked.
‘Oh…’, that’s right, why did they want to separate them? They certainly were not people! Ye Ling laughed in rage
No one knew when Ye Liu came under the eaves. He was leaning against the wooden stake his both hands across his chest, as he answered Liu Duo for Ye Ling, “When old man died, Eldest brother was only a teenager, how many prey can they sell? The will of course dwindle the money!”
Listening to his tone, how can they say that other people’s family affairs are the same? Liu Duo blushed with shame.
