323 She’s Amazing
“Well… Okay… Mother, if anything happens, remember to call for me at the village entrance. Yifu, Father, and Erfu will come running back immediately. Don’t forget about Jiang Yue’s trick.” Xue Wufu was worried and spoke with a lot of gestures.
“I know, don’t worry.”
Seeing that Xue Wufu had also left, Liu Guixia, Li Hehua, and Yu Hongyan turned around and returned to the courtyard.
Yu Hongyan said, “Grandma and uncle are here. Let’s not be in a hurry to make the rice noodles. Who knows what they’ll do with the information? ”
“We can close the door. The courtyard door is not just for decoration, you know.” Liu Guixia said with a smile. “Don’t worry about it, let’s see what they want from us first.”
Li Hehua’s voice was gentle. “Hongyan, if there’s really something wrong, you should stand further away. You’re in your final trimester. You should be careful.”
“She’s right,” Liu Guixia said with a smile.
“Don’t worry. I’ll be careful.” Yu Hongyan smiled. “If we really get into a fight, I’ll definitely stand far away and not help at all, okay?”
The last sentence was obviously a joke.
Liu Guixia was amused, “Do you think they’re gangsters? Maybe they’re here to collect their debt! Hahaha! They wouldn’t fight. I’ll just stick to Jiang Yue’s trick.”
“Jiang Yue really is amazing, isn’t she?” Yu Hongyan laughed along and shook her head.
Although Li Hehua didn’t say anything, her expression was one of fondness. Jiang Yue was really smart.
She had eaten breakfast but hadn’t washed the rice bowls yet, so Liu Guixia went to wash them.
Li Hehua carried a bucket of pig feed to the pig pen and poured it into the pig trough for the little pigs at home to eat.
There was a small vegetable garden in the courtyard, and beans were already growing inside. Yu Hongyan took a basket and walked in. She picked up a bowl of beans and took them out to cook for lunch.
Just as Liu Guixia and the others were busy with their work, Liu Guisheng was also helping his mother reach the entrance of Locust Village. They just had to go around the river but Liu Guisheng suddenly stopped walking forward.
“Mother, I can only send you up to this point. When you’re there, you must remember to control your temper and to use your words.” Liu Guisheng couldn’t help but remind her again.
“Stop being annoying!” Grandma Liu was highly impatient.
“Alright, alright, I won’t say anymore. You can do as you see fit, okay?” Liu Guisheng was just as impatient. “Do you want me to send lunch over?” he asked after a pause.
Grandma Liu immediately straightened her back. “Do you think I can’t even get a bowl of rice from my own daughter? Do you really need to send it over?!”
“Don’t blame me if she really doesn’t give it to you.” Liu Guisheng fought back.
Although this mother of his was really annoying at times. She was too overbearing and would not listen to anything, everything that his mother had was given to him. He was heartless and did not even care about his own sister. However, perhaps it was also because he was born from his mother’s womb that she had a special place in his heart. In any case, he would do what he had to do as a son.
Hearing her son’s words, Grandma Liu’s heart started to beat like a drum. She didn’t want to go hungry, but she couldn’t bring herself to do it. Still, she said with a huff, “Since we’re reached this point, you can just ask your son to bring me a bowl. If I eat it at your sister’s house. When I’m done, I’ll ask him to take it back.”
Then, she didn’t care about her son anymore. She went around the river and went straight into Locust Village.
When people from Locust Village saw her, their expressions were a little strange. After all, everyone knew why Liu Guixia didn’t hang out with her family anymore. However, out of courtesy, they still greeted her. “Hello, aunty! Why are you here today?”
