Chapter 195: How Wild
In the end, it wasn’t as Auntie Tian had originally planned. After she was divorced by Tian Laoqi, she remarried into the Xiong family and similarly had a family and a house to live in.
Besides, the men from the Xiong family were young and strong. Which woman in their thirties wouldn’t like them?
Furthermore, the Xiong family had a very high monthly salary. Their family was much richer than the other families in Yunwu Village!
Thinking about it, she was actually leading a much better life than before!
As Auntie Tian thought about this, she felt happy.
However, things were not like that. After Guan Chibei’s arrangement of Auntie Tian and the Xiong family had been seen by the villagers, Guan Chibei even reported to the officials in the city.
He reported them for being promiscuous!
As Auntie Tian was a married woman, she was indeed cheating. The Shang dynasty did not treat women poorly and was quite open-minded. Mother Rong and the rest could go out and do business.
However, there were still requirements regarding women’s morals!
At the very least, unfaithful women were not tolerated at all. This had nothing to do with gender and was against morals!
Not to mention in ancient times, women from the Shang dynasty could go to school, but there were also rules governing women violating the virtues of women.
In other words, it was illegal for Auntie Tian to do this in the Shang dynasty!
Moreover, the other party was not a man but a few men. Ah, this…
When the officials heard the rumors in Yuan City, they were already shocked. Guan Chibei went to report to the officials, and they seemed to have experienced the vicissitudes of life as they lit a cigarette.
There was also a sure-kill technique…
That indecent performance was even exposed to the eyes of all the villagers. This could be considered as publicly committing adultery, a step higher than the original cheating in the eyes of the law.
As a result, Auntie Tian and the Xiong family had to be interrogated over this matter during the trial!
The reason why Guan Chibei went to report to the officials was that he had already asked around in the city and knew that the government of Yuan City did not have much of a presence. This was because Yuan City was a shipping area and had more developed businesses. The government did not seem to be that strong.
However, the officials in Yuan City were not dark and corrupt. On second thought, it made sense. It was an important transport hub with huge transits of goods and people. How much trouble would a bad government cause?
On the contrary, although the Yuan City government did not do much, it was obvious that the government was reasonable when it came to the ruling and management of small matters.
They did not do much because Yuan City was small and nothing bad happened.
He seemed to have heard that the new county magistrate’s surname was Lin. He had just been transferred to Yuan City for less than half a year. He had only just arrived, so there had been no major incidents.
The Xiong brothers had once said in front of Guan Chibei that it was useless to report to the officials. They had some influence in the city to make the officials side with them.
These words were both true and false.
It was true that the Xiong brothers lived in the city and mingled in casinos. They must have some sort of influence, the kind that involved the government.
However, the county magistrate surnamed Lin who had just been transferred over was one of the aristocrats of the Shang Dynasty. He had a strong background and was directly related to the imperial city.
It was impossible for the forces on the Xiong brothers’ side to come in contact with County Magistrate Lin.
Therefore, Guan Chibei was not afraid of the Xiong brothers, and he knew better than them.
Hence, he went to the city immediately and reported to the officials.
He had struck the official drum directly. The sound of the drum reached the county magistrate. Without the help of the people below, the Xiong brothers’ influence could not stop him at all. Thus, Guan Chibei went straight to County Magistrate Lin.
Oh, the Shang dynasty was different from other dynasties. Commoners did not have to be punished if they struck the official drum.
In recent years, there were even commoners who went to the gates of the government to play with the official drums when they were bored. In the end, the government couldn’t punish them at all. Thus, they could only add new guards to stand by and keep watch of the official drums.
Therefore, Guan Chibei returned to the village quickly without any injuries after reporting to the officials.
The officials immediately sent people to investigate. There was actually no need to investigate. The entire Yuan City was filled with “Hehe, have you heard…”
Moreover, it was worth mentioning that the officials went to investigate and even found out that the Xiong brothers had drugged someone.
Thus, everything was wiped out.
The officials came to the village and brought Auntie Tian and the Xiong family to the government!
Yunwu Village was in an uproar again.
Although the villagers were discussing fervently about Auntie Tian and the rest, they were still ordinary citizens and villagers. They did not dare to have any contact with the officials.
Upon hearing that the officials were here, they were shocked.
They were both shocked and afraid. It was another type of shock. The villagers’ expressions froze as they quietly discussed whether Auntie Tian and the others would be beheaded.
The officials… the officials were here!
When the officials entered the village, the entire Yunwu Village became quiet.
The officials brought the four people to the hall. When the county magistrate and the officials saw them, they were both shocked and puzzled.
The officials found out that the Xiong brothers had drugged someone.
However, when they saw Auntie Tian…
Ah, they especially drugged such a woman?
The officials were also watching the excitement. When they saw the Xiong family, which was so frightened that the three almost lost control of their bladders, their expressions were exceptionally complicated.
All the feelings they had were summarized in one sentence…
… How wild.
County Magistrate Lin was interrogating Auntie Tian and the Xiong family in the hall to see if they had cheated, if they had publicly committed adultery, and if they had drugged someone.
Auntie Tian was a woman from the mountains, but she was actually being arrested by the officials. She was so scared that she fainted on the way.
When she arrived at the hall, she was originally awake. When she saw the tall officials and the county magistrate, her eyes rolled back and she peed on the spot. Then, she fainted again.
All the officials and soldiers were speechless. “…”
The county magistrate was speechless. “…”
The Xiong family was speechless. “…”
Wasn’t this too disgusting?
However, the county magistrate had seen many people behave like this. After a moment of silence, he interrogated the Xiong family.
The Xiong family’s expressions were dark and ugly. Firstly, they did not expect Guan Chibei to really report to the officials! Secondly, they were extremely resentful. Guan Chibei was the one who had framed them with this woman! They had originally wanted to ruin Guan Chibei’s wife!
However, although the Xiong family was extremely resentful, they could not say a single word.
They even had to admit to this crime.
That was because they had originally drugged Guan Chibei in order to ruin Ye Lulu and kill the babies. They were guilty of assault, rape, and murder.
Although they were all attempted crimes, they were much more serious than adultery!
Even if they did not succeed, it was very likely that they would be exiled to the borders. After all, it was impossible for Yuan City to leave behind criminals with such vicious thoughts!
Therefore, the Xiong family were so aggrieved that they vomited blood, but they could only admit to this crime…
Guan Chibei wanted to teach them a lesson and make them feel aggrieved.
However, in order to reduce their crimes, the Xiong family said unanimously, “We drugged her to add to the fun of our relationship. This woman has a husband and a son, but she was willing to commit adultery with the three of us. Yesterday, she even begged profusely to stay in our house and even said that she wanted to serve the three of us. The villagers also saw this. At that time, she did it willingly and did not lose her mind.”
Auntie Tian had just woken up again…
She heard these words.
How could… these men from the mountains…
Auntie Tian rolled her eyes and fainted for the third time.
Ye Lulu knew about Guan Chibei’s actions.
Ye Lulu immediately exclaimed, “How wild, baby.”
Guan Chibei was speechless. “…”
What kind of words were those?
He realized that she probably came from a place where the language system was very different from the Shang dynasty because ambiguous words often came out of her mouth.
There wasn’t anything wrong with her words. These existed in the Shang dynasty too. However, after considering the context, her expression, and her tone, she didn’t seem to mean that.
Just like now…
“Baby?” The man looked at her with dark eyes.
Ye Lulu immediately choked and told him, “I don’t mean anything else. I’m just praising your actions. You did the right thing. Good fellow!”
He understood. Was this ‘good fellow’ also praising him?
Guan Chibei did not say anything. He felt something was amiss, but walked away. It was a piece of cake for him to report to the authorities. He went to clean the backyard after doing so.
However, Auntie Tian and the Xiong family were boiling with anger!
The entire village waited for a day before the news was sent back from the city: The officials have issued a verdict!
As a married woman who had an affair, Auntie Tian was sentenced to be exiled to the south, three thousand miles away! As for the Xiong family, regardless of their motives, it was a violation to privately buy knockout pills. Moreover, it was destructive to the morals. Furthermore, County Magistrate Lin had also sent people to investigate many of the evil deeds they had done in the casino. Together, they would be beheaded.
The news spread and caused a huge uproar.
The reverence the villagers of Yunwu Village had for the officials turned into strong fear and trembling.
There was also a storm in Yuan City.
When Ye Lulu heard this, she was surprised. “The Xiong family’s sentence was even heavier than a woman’s?”
Originally, she thought that in ancient times, women would always be criticized for having an affair. It could be said that it was a crime of intolerance.
As men, the Xiong family had not married yet, so it could only be said that they had committed adultery together, but they could not be convicted of other crimes… In fact, if this news were to spread to the world, it might even be downplayed into a romantic affair.
Auntie Tian had a husband and a son. No matter what, the situation was more serious than the Xiong family.
Therefore, Ye Lulu was surprised that the final verdict sentenced the Xiong family to a heavier sentence.
However, the Xiong family did not have a heavy sentence because of adultery. If it was a normal sentence, they would at most be jailed, and Auntie Tian would be exiled.
It was County Magistrate Lin who saw that the Xiong family members were casino fighters and specially sent people to investigate them, only to find out that they had done many evil things.
The reason why the Xiong family was beheaded was that they privately bought drugs, killed people, and sold human beings!
That’s right. The Xiong family would sometimes hook up with some rich merchants. Those rich merchants and foreigners did not need to be responsible. In order to benefit from this, the Xiong family members, who were born in the mountains, had once sold beautiful girls and even young men from the mountains.
They also did not care about the severity of others’ debts and had once killed someone.
These were all secrets of the casino. The Xiong family had never told anyone about them.
Otherwise, how could they bully the entire village and have thoughts of ruining Ye Lulu and killing the babies?
They were indeed evil people.
This could be considered the biggest case since the new county magistrate took office.
Furthermore, forget about how the commoners usually caused huge ruckuses, if it really involved beheading… This was really frightening. The initial wanton jokes became stern silences.
No one dared to joke around with romantic affairs anymore.
As for the Tian family, when they found out that Auntie Tian had actually been sentenced to exile by the authorities, Tian Laoqi was stunned for a moment. Then, he hugged his only son, Tie Wa, in a daze and muttered, “Our son is fine. In the future, Father will take care of you…”
In short, this matter came to an end.
Snow suddenly fell and covered the entire world overnight. The village on the mountain was covered in thick snow, and the world became snow-white.
Ye Lulu woke up early in the morning and felt the strong chill and refreshing aura.
She felt something and opened the window a little. She saw a patch of silver outside and immediately knew that it was snowing!
Ye Lulu closed the window and touched the babies’ foreheads in surprise to confirm that they did not feel cold from the snow last night. It had been getting colder these days and everyone was guessing when it would snow. Today, it was finally the first snow of the year.
Mother Rong and the rest had stopped setting up the stall yesterday. It was just nice that their business had reached its last day and everyone was at home today.
Mother Rong left the house and had already cleaned up the courtyard. She covered her mouth and sighed. Although it was cold, she was feeling very happy.
How could she not be happy?
The Guan family was doing really well this year!
They did not have to worry about winter and New Year!
Ye Lulu gave birth to triplets, Guan Chibei returned from the dead, and the whole family was around. Furthermore, they did business and earned quite a lot of money! They also bought a lot of items at home. There was a house full of food and drinks!
Therefore, when she had the time to rest today, Mother Rong was overjoyed. She liked everything she saw and even felt that the snow was clean.
After the first heavy snowfall, the village was immediately silent. Everyone stayed in their houses and didn’t come out to walk.
It was like this during winter. There was heavy snow and it was cold everywhere. Everyone stayed at home.
The Guan family would definitely not be bored this winter.
The children could not leave the house, but there was joy at home too! There were so many kinds of livestock in the backyard, and a bunch of children woke up early in the morning to touch the goats.
There were also people who went to take care of the chicks. The furry yellow chicks were really too cute.
There was another highlight.
It was snowing today, so what was the first meal at home?
When Mother Rong entered Ye Lulu’s house, she asked Ye Lulu for her opinion immediately. During this time, she even kissed and touched the three babies. Ye Lulu thought for a moment and suggested,
“It’s so cold, so it’s best to eat hotpot.”
“Hotpot?” Mother Rong asked in confusion, “Are you talking about pots? We eat pots here. There are pot shops in Yuan City. Most of them are goat intestines pots, fish meat pots, fresh chicken pots… Each type of pot is different. Lulu, do you want to eat a pot? Are we eating pots today?”
