Liu Duo woke up feeling sticky and confused. She slipped out of bed without a care for what she was wearing, and rushed out with a menstrual pad.
Ye Mo, who was busy chopping wood, frowned in displeasure at Liu Duo coming out a mess. As he was about to open his mouth to reprimand her, she vanished into a shack.
The fourth brother was In the kitchen preparing steamed buns and porridge for breakfast.
After changing her menstrual pad, Liu Duo made her way to the well to wash it. She felt a sigh of relief at the sight of full buckets.
“Liu Duo, do you know no shame!? Get back to the house and put on some clothes!” Ye Mo stopped what he was doing and snapped at her when she showed no sign of returning to get dressed.
“Oh my, how much did you see? Are my tits on display, or did I show some ass?” she asked, looking up at him.
Angry and embarrassed, Ye Mo’s face turned beet red. No woman should be talking like this… She was beyond shameless!
“You… Don’t get smart with me! Get back to the house put on some clothes! A woman is meant to follow her husband’s orders, understand!?
“Shush up… I couldn’t care less.” After a few washes, she hung the cloth strip to dry and wandered back to her room.
Ye Mo quickly chopped the rest of the firewood in a rage.
After returning to her room, Liu Duo laid down with her eyes closed. Her period was taking its toll on her.
“Third brother, Duo’er, breakfast is ready,” Ye Ling called, setting down three bowls of white porridge and chopsticks.
Not seeing Liu Duo, Ye Ling checked the bedroom and found her in bed, curled up like a ball.
He went to the bedside and patted her gently: “Duo’er, breakfast is ready. Didn’t you say you wanted to go out yesterday? I’ll accompany you after breakfast.”
While chatting the night before, Liu Duo said she wanted to explore their surroundings. Otherwise, she’d never know how to get home.
Separated by the quilt, Liu Duo said: “I don’t want to move, I’ll eat later. My great aunt’s making me not feel so great.”
When he heard she was feeling bad, he began to worry. He didn’t know what to do, as he had no practical experience with menstrual periods. “What do you say we have Li Bo give you something? Li Bo’s very good.”
“No, this is normal. I just want to lie down for a bit. You go eat first.” It’s normal to feel this way, it’s not cramps or something you need medicine for.
“Then eat breakfast and lie down, or you’ll be hungry and sick.”
“It’s fine, just let me sleep.”
“Alright. In that case, I’ll leave you something in the steamer. Eat up when you’re feeling better.”
“Thank you, fourth brother.”
Ye Ling went out and closed the door.
Having put all the firewood in the kitchen, Ye Mo went over to wash his hands. Curiously, he saw Ye Ling bring a bowl of porridge back into the kitchen, but Liu Duo was nowhere to be seen.
He walked over and sat down, saying: “What about her? She need an invitation?”
Going back to the table and sitting down, Ye Ling picked up his chopsticks, saying: “Duo’er isn’t feeling well, she’ll eat later. Let’s you and I eat for now.”
“What’s wrong with her? We didn’t have her do any running around or anything. I mean, eldest and second brother aren’t even back yet. What’s there to be tired about?”
“Third brother, Duo’er’s… in the middle of her great aunt. She just wants to lie down. We don’t want anything to happen, do we?” His third brother’s temper made Ye Ling feel helpless.
