(Sponsored chapter 3/8)
Xiaoyou was poking at the ants on the ground with his short hand holding a branch, when he heard the voices of Li Xiao’er and an Ama coming from the gate of the courtyard. It didn’t take long to see Li Xiao’er closing the courtyard door, and his face was not good-looking. “Aunt, what’s wrong with you?”
Li Xiao’er gave Xiaoyou a stiff smile, “It’s nothing, let’s go, Xiaoyou, go into the house.”
As he spoke, he took the ignorant Xiaoyou back to the house. Although he was an unmarried ger, he also knew why Xia Ama came to the door. He heard from a few good friends who got along with him, and one of them is related to Xia Ama that Chen Hong and his family have such troubles. Chen Hong is one of the best gers in the village. Even if he became like this, what else can’t be done?
Who knows, in the evening, the news of Xia Ama had visited was relayed by Xiaoyou, “aunt quarreled with Xia Ama today!?”
When Li Xiao’er heard this, he hurriedly wanted to cover Xiaoyou’s mouth, but he didn’t know that this little slicker ran away in a blink of an eye, and made faces at him as he ran!
As soon as he heard that Xia Ama came to the door and quarreled with his own son, Li Ama immediately attached great importance to this matter. Hopefully, Li Xiao’er hadn’t said anything bad. If this offended the matchmaker, it wouldn’t be a good thing.
“Tell me, what’s going on?”
Li Xiao’er was most afraid of his Ama when he raises his tone like this, so he could only whisper what happened in the afternoon. Unexpectedly, Li Ama became happier the more he listened to it.
“Cough, how can you treat your elders like this!” After whispering to Li Xiao’er, Li Ama calmed down and told the two daughters-in-law who came back soon after working in the field: “I will fry another dish for dinner to entertain the guest. The third family wife, go to the Xia family to invite Xia Ama over for dinner, and said that I will apologize to him today for our younger brother!”
Li Xiao’er didn’t understand what he said, what apology. In fact, Li Ama just wanted to find out if Xia Ama was looking for a marriage for the man in town, like the rumors in the village!
“Ama!” How can he see people after treating them like this in the morning!
“It doesn’t have anything to do with you, go to the kitchen to help,” Li Ama finished talking, but saw Li Xiao’er standing still, “What, you want me to help you there?!”
Li Xiao’er had no choice but to hold his breath and rushed into the kitchen.
It rained again at night. Xu Qing and Li Changfeng were still in bed, not affected by the sound of rain outside the window at all. The suppressed sound inside the house and the sound of dripping rain outside the window formed a continual little song!
Xu Qing moved his eyes and felt the light leaking in from the window, and knew that a new day has started again, “I don’t want to get up.” Xu Qing yawned lazily and drilled into Li Changfeng’s arms, just in time to be caught by the other party and hugged tightly.
“Knock, knock, knock, knock!”
“Then sleep for a while.” Anyway, it rained a little last night, so I can’t do anything today. The wardrobe was also sent to Wei also Er yesterday, so it’s rare to have a good rest.
“Someone knocked on the door?” Xu Qing stuck out his head and listened carefully, “Someone really knocked on the door!”
Li Changfeng pressed Xu Qing’s head back on the pillow, put on his clothes neatly, “Go to sleep, I’ll take a look.” It seemed that it was impossible to hug his wife and sleep in.
Looking at the back of Li Changfeng going out, Xu Qing’s sleepiness was completely gone. He also sat up and slowly put on his clothes, wondering why there was no movement outside.
When Xu Qing came to the main room, Li Changfeng was looking at Li Xiao’er, who was covered in some wet mud because he came all the way from another village.
“Second brother-in-law, how are you?”
Li Xiao’er looked at Xu Qing, whose face was still a little red because he had just woken up, and greeted timidly, he came today unannounced.
Xu Qing was rubbing his sleepy eyes when he heard this rabbit-like small voice, and looked at the unexpected guest, “it’s the little brother Li! Ah, why are you this wet? Come to the room with me and change clothes! Be careful of catching a cold!”
Li Xiao’er sneaked out early in the morning when the sky was yet to be brighten. He was very courageous, coming all the way alone. It rained last night and the road was muddy. Naturally, his clothes were dirty. Hearing Xu Qing’s words, Li Xiao’er was a little moved, but he didn’t dare to go and looked carefully at Li Changfeng, who had a gloomy face.
How could Li Changfeng not feel his own little brother’s gaze, he nodded slightly to him, “Go.”
When Li Xiao’er heard this, he smiled and followed the somewhat unfamiliar Xu Qing into the room, but outside, Li Changfeng was full of anger. This Ma family didn’t get to marry Chen Hong, and now they actually wanted to ruin his own little brother.
Li Xiao’er sat on the bed and watched Xu Qing rummaging through the cabinets to find clothes for him. He felt warm in his heart. The reason why he came here was because the second brother loved him the most in his family. His second brother always protected him and treated him well.
“Second brother-in-law, I came here empty-handed, you won’t be angry?” Li Xiao’er was a little uneasy in his heart, but he didn’t show it on his face, and asked Xu Qing with a smile.
Xu Qing handed the clothes he found to Li Xiao’er, just in time to catch the cautious look in the other party’s eyes, and suddenly felt it was a little funny: “What are you talking about, if anyone that has to get someone something, it’d be your second brother and I, hurry up and change, I’ll go make breakfast. .”
Li Xiao’er took the clothes and smiled sweetly at Xu Qing. After Xu Qing went out, he was completely relieved. When he was about to change his clothes, he realized that the clothes were still new! The thoughtful Li Xiao’er changed into the clothes Xu Qing gave him.
“What’s wrong, frowning so early in the morning,” Xu Qing washed his hands and walked into the kitchen to prepare breakfast when he saw Li Changfeng sitting in front of the stove, with a serious look on his face!
Seeing his wife, Li Changfeng calmed down slightly, and told the other party the whole story.
“This Ma family is really not a good thing, are they not afraid of rumors spreading or provoking others?” Xu Qing really didn’t understand why they wanted to their son to marry someone in such a hurry.
Li Changfeng smiled sarcastically, “I heard that many people heard these rumors, and even went to the Ma’s grocery store to join in the fun, and their business is better than before.”
This made Xu Qing speechless. It turns out that there could still be such an outcome!
Li Changfeng stretched out his hand and rubbed Xu Qing’s face, and said in a low voice in a negotiating tone, “I want to go back and make things clear to them. You stay home with Xiao’er. This is not suitable for you to participate in.”
Xu Qing nodded, “Go after breakfast, don’t be in a hurry at this time, I’ll make dinner at home and wait for you to come back.”
Li Changfeng lowered his head and kissed Xu Qing’s forehead, nodded, and said nothing, but his heart was full of warmth.
Standing outside the kitchen, Li Xiao’er could feel the warm atmosphere of the two of them in the house. It’s good, the second brother has finally found someone who knows both cold and hot.
After Li Changfeng finished breakfast, he went to cut a slap of pig grass and then rushed to Jixiang Village. Xu Qing and Li Xiao’er were making cloth shoes at home, but it was Li Xiao’er who taught and Xu Qing who learned from the other.
“You are amazing, you are so good at everything you do at such a young age!” Xu Qing looked enviously at the needle and thread that was moving dexterously like a hidden weapon under the hands of Li Xiao’er, and when it arrived in his hand, it was black like a hammer, useless.
“This is nothing. You haven’t seen what Chen Hong from our village could make. He is amazing. Not only can he embroider with other people’s patterns, but he can even draw the patterns himself and sell them!” Li Xiao’er felt that chatting with Xu Qing brings him just a moment of enjoyment, like he doesn’t have to worry about how to continue the conversation, especially comfortable.
This was the first time Xu Qing heard Chen Hong’s name apart from Li Changfeng and Chen Qi. He was also very curious about what kind of person he was and interested in the character of the other party.
Hearing Li Xiao’er’s admiring tone, Xu Qing became even more curious, “What about him?”
Brother Li stopped what he was doing and thought for a while, “he looks good, and he is very competent in skills that I like to have. I admire him, we are about the same age, plus my second brother and his elder brother are good brothers, and we both grew up together.”
After speaking, he smiled embarrassingly at Xu Qing, “So we are often compared by the others.” Of course, it was him always lacking a little, but Li Xiao’er knew that he was not comparable to Chen Hong.
This comparison made Xu Qing think of the wonderful person he has grown to be very fond of – Bother Xie Yu.
“What is there to compare with? He has his blessings, and you have your own. Maybe you are even better in his mind, and he might be secretly comparing himself to you and envy you!” Xu Qing’s words made Li Xiao’er amused; he laughed happily. This person really would say things no one else would, really interesting.
The two people in the yard laughed wildly, but the person who came here to inquire about the situation made his mind lively.
Luo Jiao carefully attached his ear to Xu Qing’s courtyard door, wanting to listen carefully to what was going on inside. Wasn’t he hearing Xu Qing joking with a man! Luo Jiao watched Li Changfeng leave from the edge of the village. He stood up straight, took out a pink handkerchief from his arms, wiped the fine sweat on his face, and looked proud.
It seems that this “ugly ger” is not a serious person either. His husband hasn’t even gone far, and he has already invited the little side piece in.
The Translator has something to say: Lousy Jiao, not everyone is like you sheeesh
