“During that time, I did some temporary work, but I was young and wasn’t strong enough. I can only earn a few coppers. Still, I grew up very handsome”
“Third Brother that time attend school while Fourth Brother, this fart, has to take medicine regularly. So our expenses were huge, “ Ye Liu said
Can Second brother speak more decently? Both Liu Duo and Ye Ling thought.
But the most unexpected thing for Liu Duo was, although Third brother was impulsive, he was educated
“Oh, yes, Eldest brother thought that having a
wife was expensive, so even if old man didn’t die. we’ll still be sharing a wife!”
‘whaaattt- I don’t understand this shiii—-’ oh its good, Liu Duo agreed.
Moving to Liu Duo’s side, Ye Liu sat down.
“If they want us separated then be it! What I can’t accept was why mother died of anger!”
Sighing, he continued, “The first time I heard about the separation, I thought, maybe everything would be different!”
When he was 12, His Father and Eldest brother would often go to the mountains to hunt. His Third Brother was at school while he would go to town to do some small work. One time, he came back early and unintentionally discovered that his Grandmother, Aunts and Uncles would treat his Mother and Fourth brother poorly when they weren’t around.
They made her mother washed a big pile of clothes. All of the work was given to her alone, but they still didn’t allow them to eat enough food. Their cousins would also bully Ye Ling often.
His Mother and Fourth brother had suffered so much but they didn’t say anything.
That time he got angry and roared at his mother, “Why didn’t you tell father and us? Father and Eldest brother hunts in the mountains, betting their own lives. I’m also making money outside, and every penny we earned was given to this house but they still treated you and fourth brother this way! You were bullied and endured everything. Wait until father and eldest brother came back, we will separate from this house!”
But his kind mother insisted ‘‘We are family, What we do, be it less or more doesn’t matter. This child, how can you talk about separating? Really not filial. Grandmother didn’t talk about separating, Don’t speak carelessly and hurt them.”
As soon as his Father and brother returned, he talked to his father, persuading him a lot of times that separating was the best choice, but they declined, saying the same words!
Reminiscing, Ye Liu kicked the stool and cursed, “Foolish filial piety!”
“Liu Duo and Ye Ling was shocked, just now, they were talking just fine, but he suddenly flipped out. This was the first time they saw him like this.
“Second brother?”, Ye Ling softly called.
Liu Duo gently shook his arm. Silently questioning ‘What’s wrong?’
Obviously, Ye Liu was in deep thought recalling something.
Returning to his senses, Ye Liu laughed, “Nothing, it’s already in the past..”
Liu Duo was curious of what happened and asked, “Afterward?”
Looking at the curious Liu Duo, Ye Liu satisfies her curiosity, “Afterward, we separated! Eldest brother’s marriage was also blown away! This small yard, an acre of paddy field and two acre of vegetable field was given to us.”
“Eldest brother still hunt while I continued doing small works. Third Brother can’t continue school anymore. In addition to planting the fields, the most important thing is to be responsible and to look after Fourth brother’s feces and urine.”
Hearing it, Liu Duo finally smiled, Fourth brother’s feces and urine? Was Fourth Brother so useless that time? Like raising a child? He’s not a baby.
Ye Ling blushed with shame. When did he let his third brother look after his feces and urine? He was 10 years old at that time, and was already a sensible child!
