Chapter 80: Lesson 1
Chen Erniu was puzzled. She pursed her lips and ran out.
Chen Hu went straight to the kitchen to cut the meat and boil water to cook.
From the moment he decided to follow Su Sanlang, he had decided not to be the son of the Chen family. His family had worked hard for the food at home. Why should his family starve and freeze?
Chen Hu was cooking while Mother Chen was sewing clothes with her two daughters-in-law in the main room.
When her eldest daughter-in-law, Madam Yang, smelled the fragrance, she sniffed and said, “Mom, why do I smell rice? Who’s cooking?”
Her second daughter-in-law, Madam Wu, also smelled it and said gloomily, “I smell it too. Could it be that Chen Hu is secretly cooking?”
Mother Chen slapped the bed angrily. “How dare he!”
With that, Mother Chen got out of bed and went out to check.
When she came to the kitchen and saw that Chen Hu had already cut half a pot of meat and was cooking, Mother Chen was furious. She rushed towards Chen Hu and was about to hit him.
However, it was different this time. Chen Hu did not let Mother Chen hit him. Instead, he grabbed Mother Chen’s hand and said coldly, “Mother, you’d better not attack me again. Otherwise, I don’t know what I’ll do.”
Chen Hu’s grip was quite strong. Mother Chen only felt pain in her wrist. She was frightened and did not dare to speak for a moment.
Chen Hu let go of Mother Chen’s hand and looked coldly at Madam Yang and Madam Wu, who had followed Mother Chen here.
Madam Yang and Madam Wu were both shocked. In the past, Chen Hu was just a cripple in their eyes. Who would have thought that he would have such a ruthless and terrifying side to him?
The two of them did not dare to speak.
Mother Chen, who had come back to her senses, wailed loudly, “Heavens! This unfilial son even dares to hit his own mother. What are you all waiting for? Do you want to see him beat me to death? Hurry up and go to the fields to call you men back.”
Mother Chen pointed at Chen Hu angrily. “You unfilial son. Just you wait. When your father and brothers come home, they’ll beat you to death.”
Chen Hu did not say anything and only glanced coldly at Mother Chen.
Mother Chen was shocked. This gaze was terrifying. She was scared. She looked at the stove and gritted her teeth before leaving.
After they left, Chen Hu continued cooking and preparing the washed vegetables. When the meat was almost done, he would pour the vegetables in and stew them together. This way, he would have both meat and food.
He sharpened a stick with a scythe. His expression was very, very cold in the fiery light.
He knew he had a tough fight ahead of him. Maybe everyone would scold him later. But so what? He didn’t care.
Father Chen, Chen Qiang, and Chen Long were called back by Madam Wu and Madam Yang. On the way back, they heard about what had happened and they returned with anger.
As soon as they reached home, Father Chen roared, “Chen Hu, come out and face your death!”
Chen Hu slowly came out of the kitchen with a stick as thick as a child’s wrist.
Chen Qiang and Chen Long were surprised.
“Are you crazy? How dare you hit your father and brothers with a stick?”
Chen Qiang said angrily. He felt that Chen Hu must be crazy. Otherwise, how would he dare to do such a thing? Who gave him the courage?
Mother Chen came out of the main room and said fiercely, “Qiang, Long, hurry up and teach this disobedient unfilial son a lesson. It doesn’t matter if you beat him to death. I’ll pretend that I never gave birth to him in the future.”
Chen Long immediately swung his hoe and said, “Dad, Mom, I’ll beat him to death.”
With that, Chen Long smashed his hoe at Chen Hu.
Chen Hu did not retreat. He dodged and swept his stick across Chen Long’s waist.
There was a muffled sound of a stick hitting Chen Long’s waist, followed by Chen Long’s cry of pain.
“Oh my God, I’m going to die…”
Chen Long felt a sharp pain in his waist and his body seemed to have gone numb. When he landed, he cried out in pain. His hoe had long fallen to the ground.
Chen Hu was ruthless and vicious. No one had expected this.
Father Chen was stunned on the spot, and the anger in his heart increased greatly.
Chen Qiang frowned. Thinking of how ruthless Chen Hu was just now, he did not dare to rashly attack.
In the past, when they fought Chen Hu, Chen Hu had never fought back. No one knew that he would be so strong.
Only Madam Wu cried out in surprise and rushed to Chen Long’s side. “Dear, are you alright? Are you alright?”
“Third Brother, how could you be so ruthless? He’s your second brother.”
Madam Wu’s heart ached as she accused Chen Hu angrily.
Chen Hu looked at Madam Wu coldly. “When he wanted to poach me with a hoe, he didn’t treat me as his younger brother.”
After Chen Hu finished speaking, he looked at Father Chen and Mother Chen coldly and said coldly, “If you don’t treat me as your son, I won’t treat you as my parents or brothers in the future. As long as I’m still in this family, I’ll do whatever I want. If you want to teach me a lesson, don’t blame me for being ruthless.”
Chen Hu held his stick and looked straight at Father Chen.
Father Chen clenched his fists, frightened by Chen Hu’s ruthlessness. In the past, Chen Hu had never dared to look at him like this, much less speak to him like this.
Now, not only did he dare, he fought back and cursed, unlike before. If he dared to hit him again, he wouldn’t let him. He would fight back.
Father Chen was trembling with anger. He gritted his teeth and said angrily, “Are you crazy? Aren’t you afraid that I’ll chase your family out? Do you even care about your child’s life?”
Hearing Father Chen’s threat, not only did Chen Hu not show any fear, but his eyes were even more ruthless. He said coldly, “If I can’t live, then no one can. If you dare to hit Daniu and Erniu again, I won’t hesitate to beat you up. At most, the Chen family will die together.”
Hearing Chen Hu’s ruthless words, Father Chen’s heart sank. He gritted his teeth and looked at Chen Hu’s sinister expression. In the end, he did not dare to attack again. He only waved his hand and glared at Chen Hu angrily. Then, he said fiercely, “Let’s see how long you can stay crazy.”
With that, Father Chen left for the main house.
“Damn it, why don’t the heavens strike this animal with lightning?”
Mother Chen also cursed angrily before following Father Chen back to the main house.
Chen Qiang looked at Chen Hu. Madam Yang was afraid that he would be in the limelight, so she hurriedly pulled him back into the house.
Chen Long, who could not get up from the pain, roared angrily at Madam Wu. Madam Wu trembled in fear and hurriedly carried Chen Long back to the house.
Chen Hu’s cold expression softened. At this moment, he saw Madam Qian and his two daughters not far away. He walked toward Madam Qian and said gently, “Dear, the food is ready. Let’s eat.”
Madam Qian and Chen Daniu were hurriedly called back from the field by Chen Erniu. When they saw the scene of Chen Hu beating Chen Long, they were frightened. Madam Qian did not dare to show her face and only pulled her two daughters back a little. Madam Qian only dared to come out after everyone in the family had gone back to the house.
She felt that Chen Hu had changed. Madam Qian lowered his eyes. Her second daughter had told her that Su Sanlang had come by. Chen Hu had changed now. Perhaps Su Sanlang had said something to him.
