Hearing what his parents said, Xie Yu couldn’t help but laugh, but his eyes were filled with joy, “Thank you, father, mother.” Xie Ama quickly took out his handkerchief and carefully wiped Xie Yu’s eyes, “Why are you saying thank you! You are our child, and you cried just because of such a thing?” If you’re not reading this on hololonovels, the ending will be missing.
“Is the Ma family’s unreasonable person making you suffer again?! Who does he think he is? I knew I should have punched him a few more times!” Uncle Xie’s angry voice drew the attention of the other guests around, but the person himself didn’t notice it at all.
“Father! Keep it down!” Xie Yu’s melancholy feelings just now were destroyed by his own father. After so many years, his father is still living without a care in the world.
“Stop talking!” Xie Ama wasn’t so concerned about getting rid of Uncle Xie’s problem. The best way is to just make him shut up. Uncle Xie was told off by his two most loved ones, and he didn’t get angry. His smile a little silly, he drank his teacup quietly, and it made Xie Yu laugh.
“Don’t mind him. Xiao Yu, drink slowly. We will go for a walk later. We haven’t been shopping together for a long time!” The three of them went down the street again after a decent rest, watching the sky darken before returning on their way back to Ma family residence.
Old man Ma and Ma Fugui were still in the main hall in addition to three elderly people, who were sitting at the seats in innermost part of the room, which shows that these three are older than old man Ma.
“Xiao Yu, father-in-law, mother-in-law, you guys are back?” Ma Fugui greeted the three Xie family members in a soft tone. Old man Ma appeared very calm at the moment; even Ma Ama who just stared fiercely. After a few glances, Xie family returned the greeting, but didn’t say anything else.
“Well, Father, mother, these three are the elders of the Ma family.” Xie Yu asked her parents to sit down and introduced them to the three who were sitting on the upper seats silently with serious expressions.
The three old men’s statements enraged the Xie couple, who leapt up violently before their butts could get hot from sitting.
“What did you say?” Xie Ama looked at the slightly fat old man in the middle in disbelief, he felt that he had heard it wrong.
The old man cleared his throat as he looked at Xie Ama and Xie Ama’s stunned appearance, “Xie Yu has been married to the Ma family for three years already, but did not conceive. Our Ma family line is thin. Although he has never given birth to a descendant, Xie Yu is still a good child, despite the fact that he has no offspring. Therefore, according to the requests from Ma Fugui and his father, today, Ma Fugui and Xie Yu are separated and will live their own lives in the future. Let’s quickly get on with the divorce procedures not to delay anyone.”
Ma Ama said proudly at this time, “It is our family’s generosity and righteousness, otherwise based on the conditions, it could have been a letter of dismissal instead of a divorce.”
Xie Ama trembled with anger, “It was your family who insisted on my son back then. It was your son who said he would not marry anyone else but my Xiao Yu. You’re regretting now? After you tortured my son like this, admit it.”
Ma Ama rolled his eyes and flattened his mouth, “Can’t I not say that your son caused me to have no grandson for years! It’s not an exaggeration to give a divorce letter to someone who can’t even conceive.”
Xie Yu stared at Ma Fugui in a daze from the moment he heard the hurtful words, “You want … to divorce?” As soon as he heard Xie Yu’s voice, Xie Ama stopped arguing with Ma Ama, and Uncle Xie also quieted down, but still clenching his fists tightly.
Except for the sound of the three old men drinking tea, no one in the hall spoke.
The hem of Ma Fugui’s clothes was pulled by Ma Ama. He did not dare to look at Xie Yu’s eyes. His gaze wandered around, “I … I saw the prescription you put under the closet!” As his voice faded away, Xie Yu’s face grew pale, “it turns out to be the case …”
Xie couple knew there was a problem by looking at their son’s face. Ama Xie patted Xie Yu’s back lightly to console him, but couldn’t help asking, “the prescription? What’s written in the prescription?” If it was just a regular prescription, it wouldn’t have caused such a mess; it wouldn’t have made his son to have this expression.
“What’s written? That if your son wants to get pregnant in this life, it would be more difficult than to climb to the sky.” Ma Ama retorted Xie Ama, who had to pinch himself to come back to reality.
Xie Ama was speechless, because all he saw in Xie Yu’s eyes were pain and despair, “Child! Ooohhhh, my child!!!”
Xie Ama hugged the pale Xie Yu tightly. He couldn’t help but cried. What did his little son ever do to be treated like this?
Xu Qing didn’t expect this to be the case. “What happened later?” Xie Ama wiped his tears with a handkerchief. “Later, your uncle Xie almost sent Ma Fugui to the hospital. We were both very upset. I denounced the entire Ma family that they were trying to harm others for no reason, and I was gonna send them to the yamen (T/N: ancient police station).
When he thought of this situation again, Xie Ama felt like something stuck in his chest, “they said it was our Xiao Yu who was at fault and Ma Fugui’s cousin worked at the yamen even if we wanted to report them. They still had the audacity to accuse us and wanted to file a complaint against us. You also know that uncle Xie is a straightforward person, although he wanted to fight with the Ma family but he was only one man. Xiao Yu had no choice but to placate them by agreeing to accept the divorce letter. Only then the Ma family decided to let go of the matter. We stayed in the town overnight because of this.”
No wonder Xie Ama and uncle Xie looked so haggard like they didn’t have a good rest the night before, “What about Brother Xiaoyu?” Xu Qing hasn’t heard or seen Xie Yu since entering the door.
Xie Ama pointed to the corner room, which was where Xie Yu used to live when he was not married yet. “He went through a lot yesterday, and his health isn’t good. He took some medicine and fell asleep.” Why did he agree to this marriage in the first place? Obviously, the Ma family members were not good people …
Xu Qing wasn’t also in a good mood. Xie family was so kind to him, and when something happened to them, he couldn’t help him.
“Let’s not talk about it anymore. It’s all over, it’s all over! Thank you for your concern. You said you brought something delicious?”
Xie Ama let out everything stuck in his heart and became more comfortable. He felt a little embarrassed seeing Xu Qing was affected by his words, so he quickly changed the subject.
Thinking the Xie family must not have eaten well these past two days, Xu Qing hurriedly opened the small kimchi jar on the table, “This is kimchi, by the way. It has a flavor similar to pickles, but it is more appetizing. You must not have eaten well recently. At lunch, eat this with some rice. It tastes very good. Chang Feng didn’t even want to eat fish anymore since he tried it yesterday!”
Xie Ama felt his appetite returned, and he got a little excited. It didn’t really matter for them old couple whether they eat well or not, but Xiao Yu’s body was not good. If he could make Xiao Yu eat something, it is already better than nothing.
“That’s great, your brother Xiaoyu didn’t eat much these few meals, I was beginning to be worried. Thank you, brother Qing.”
“No problem. I just wanted to help in any way I could. If you don’t let me help you, I will feel unhappy. I can also make some porridge for Brother Xiao Yu. For now, let him eat this kimchi to nourish his stomach and get his appetite back.” The Kimchi he made contained the spring water, which is good for Brother Xie’s body.

“Oh … wait a minute. Look at my memory. I forgot all about giving you the chickens after I’ve been too busy these days. Come with me. I’ll find a basket for you to carry the chickens back home.”
It was almost noon when Xu Qing left Xie Ama’s house, carrying the basket with fifteen fluffy and yound chickens on his back. As soon as he got out of the village, Xu Qing met Li Changfeng, who had come to pick him up, at the outskirts of the village.
“Where are you going?” Xu Qing looked at Li Changfeng in a puzzled manner. For some reason, this man’s sudden appearance reminded him the scene when the two of them were sweating and entangled with each other.
“I went home to rest and also drink some water. I didn’t see you, so I came and checked.” The big hand took the basket from Xu Qing’s back, tightened the strap, and slung it on his arm. He then directly pulled Xu Qing’s hand towards home.
Xu Qing was scalded by Li Changfeng’s big hot hands, warming his heart, “like i didnt know the way.” Li Changfeng nodded as if he was agreeing with his wife, “but I didn’t see you at home, and my heart was not at ease.” Without Xu Qing, the entire house felt empty, and he couldn’t get used to it.
Xu Qing made a good meal at noon, but he ate only a small portion. He got up almost noon and ate breakfast late. So, he wasn’t very hungry during lunch. Li Changfeng was aware why he ate so little, and he did not force Xu Qing to eat more.
“Don’t think I’m talking nonsense. Let me ask you. If I can’t have children, will you leave me?” Xu Qing couldn’t still fully digest the fact that he was now capable of getting pregnant and giving birth. If it wasn’t for what happened to Xie Yu, he almost forgot that he was now able to have children.
Li Changfeng just took a sip of the soup, and his mouth was full. When he heard Xu Qing’s question, he shook his head hurriedly. After he swallowed the food inside the mouth, he said, “I like the world of us two people better!” Then he wouldn’t have to share his wife’s attention. How great!
Xu Qing rolled his eyes at Li Changfeng. What do you like about the two-person world? Don’t think he didn’t know what this man was thinking. Sure enough, men are three-legged animals! Although he was too. Click “NEXT” at the bottom of the page for the actual ending.
After washing and putting away the dishes and chopsticks following the meal, Li Changfeng built a chicken coop next to the pigpen. Because there were only chicks and no adult chickens, Li Changfeng covered the chicken coop with two large wooden boards and made it with four large square stones. It became a simple enclosure. He proceeded to build a circle enclosed by wooden sticks not far from the chicken coop. It would be a place for the chicks to move around during the day. These little guys would destroy all the seedlings Xu Qing planted in the backyard if they’re not contained properly.
After Li Changfeng finished his busy work, he washed his hands and face before entering the hall, but did not see his wife. Knowing that Xu Qing was in the bedroom, Li Changfeng simply closed the courtyard gate and the hall and entered the bedroom to take a nap with his wife.
