“Father, fried snakes.”
After saying that, Fanxing threw the snake into the bamboo basket behind him. The snake’s tail was too long, and he accidentally drew an arc on Xu Ruiqing’s face.
There was a crisp sound and__
Suddenly, a red mark appeared on the face of the beautiful young man.
The boss walked towards Xu Ruiqing, getting closer and closer.
Seeing that her white and tender fingers were about to poke Xu Ruiqing’s face, Xu Ruiqing quickly took a step back.
Fanxing got one step closer.
Xu Ruiqing felt confused and panicked.
What to do, he knew. She really coveted his face like a pervert!
Don’t tell him this is not possible. What’s wrong with being a fool? She is not blind. Loving beauty is human nature!
Without waiting for Xu Ruiqing to retreat any further, Mu Laosan quickly tore away his stupid girl: “Xu family boy, I am really embarrassed. My Fanxing didn’t mean to offend you. She just likes good-looking people.”
“It’s okay, Uncle Mu.”
Look! He knew that the Mu Lie family’s silly girl was stupid, but she still covets the one who should be coveted!!
After going to Mu Lie Hu’s house, Xu Ruiqing witnessed the whole process of the big man cutting open the poisonous snake.
The technique is clean and neat.
Looks so focused and pious.
The white knife goes in, the red knife goes out.
So that Xu Ruiqing looked at it for a moment and noticed that Fanxing seems to be more interested in fried snakes than him, Xu Ruiqing.
She hadn’t considered Xu Ruiqing’s feelings at all and excitedly clamoured for Mu Laosan to stir up snakes.
Mr Mu solemnly said: “Xu family boy, everyone says that the lush tree attracts the wind, and I have to trouble you to keep it a secret about this twin wild ginseng.”
Xu Ruiqing nodded and said: “That’s natural, Uncle Mu can rest assured, I won’t say it to anyone.”
Although Mu Laosan lived with his daughter out of the crowd of the village people, he knew exactly what was going on in the village.
Although the rest of the Xu family was average, Xu Ruiqing had an excellent reputation.
He said that he would not spread it out, so you can rest assured.
Smart people only need hints.
After Mu Laosan finished speaking, he didn’t say anything that was annoying.
Turning around, he started to coax his daughter: “Daughter, is Dad’s fried snake delicious?”
“Yeah.” Fanxing nodded, “Next time, I will…eat.”
Xu Ruiqing’s heart shook.
The snakes on that mountain are going to be quite pitiful!
“The girl made a significant contribution today. Do you have anything you want?” Mu Laosan planned to go to Fucheng tomorrow to sell wild ginseng and buy Fanxing some girl’s rouge gouache by the way.
Fanxing tilted his head and thought for a long time.
“Something to Eat.” Definitely, without turning back.
Xu Ruiqing’s mouth twitched involuntarily.
“What else?” Mu Lao San calculated at least five or six hundred taels of silver. Just buy some snacks.
“It should be delicious!” Once again, categorically explaining, without hesitation.
Xu Ruiqing: “…” As expected, she is a stupid girl from the Mu Lie family, but after thinking about it, she is stupid so she’s easy to be satisfied?
Mu Laosan sighed helplessly.
After all, if she was the girl of an ordinary family, she would have started clamouring for the girls’ stuff at the age of ten years old.
But for his girl, still eating is more important.
“Forget it, let’s see how much the son-in-law costs…” Mu Laosan muttered to himself.
Xu Ruiqing was sitting next to him.
He is so clever and smart at ordinary times.
The polite smile solidified a little on his face. Just now he only thought that Mu Lie’s silly girl was very wild, and now he felt…
It’s not without reason.
Look at Mu Lie Hu himself, this brain seems to be not going anywhere.
After returning to Xu’s house after dinner with the hunter family, Grandmother Li saw Xu Ruiqing’s return and was dissatisfied. ” You still know to come back!”
Xu Ruiqing was well-educated, held back, and did not reply.
Once talk back, it is considered unfilial.
If he wants to be a scholar, he must not bear the reputation of being unfilial.
At the same time, Xu Zihan and his son in the third house of the Xu family got down from the bullock cart outside the door, holding an arty folding fan in their hands, symbolizing their status as scholars in the town.
Li hurried to greet him and asked warmly.
“Why did you come back suddenly today? Is there not enough money?”
When Xu Ruiqing saw this, his eyebrows drooped slightly. One could not see the joy or anger in his eyes though.
Growing up in an absolutely eccentric environment, he has long had no expectations for his so-called relatives. His grandfather and grandmother’s heart are partial, he has long understood it.
The only thing that makes him feel unwilling is that the third uncle and his son, Xu Rui, are just mediocre in talent.
Why should he sacrifice his own future to support two mediocrities?
As expected, the third uncle and his son came back for money.
“Mother, the all students plan to go to the county town to study, and we need some silver.”
Xu Zihan was wearing the long gown of the town academy. Even though he looked like a dog, this is what Li is most proud of. Her youngest son, when he walks out, he is a scholar who is above other peasants!
Xu Rui also helped to say: “Yes, Grandma, Dad and I are going. When I get recruited as a talent, I will pick you up to live in town.”
These words are so beautiful. How can Li refuse to agree?
It takes an hour from the village, to go to the market in the town by riding the bullock cart.
The county seat, that not everyone can go to. It takes at least two or three hours to get there in an oxcart, and she can’t even go there once a year.
“How much money do you want?”
“It’s not much, it’s only one hundred and fifty. It’s okay, we will be frugal and do some work to manage the rest.” Xu Zihan said in a particularly empathetic tone.
Xu Ruiqing pressed his thin lips tightly.
Went back to the room quickly.
He could even know the next thing without even looking at.
He just couldn’t help but want to sneer. Not more than 150 taels, the other people in their Xu family spent less than a dozen taels a year. The third uncle and his son used the arty folding fan to get so much money for nothing.
Xu Ruiqing picked up the book hidden under the pillow. It was the first old book he bought back after saving money for a year or two.
It is also the only one.
Reading makes people wise, and at the same time can calm your mind.
Qin, Xu Ruiqing’s mother, opened the door and entered, seeing her son reading a book. A trace of worry flashed in her eyes.
But thinking that there are already two scholars in the Xu family, it is definitely impossible to afford another one, so she said to Xu Ruiqing: “Son, what you said to your mother before, the mother mentioned that to your father.”
Xu Ruiqing saw Qin’s face, and his heart sank: “What did father say?”
“Don’t mention this in the future. If you let your grandfather and grandmother know, you will be beaten! Your father doesn’t agree.”
His heart sank completely.
He knew that his father was so honest; it was impossible for him to agree to split the family.
“I see, Mother.”
After Qin’s departure, Xu Ruiqing clenched his palms into fists and pressed his nails tightly into his palms.
A kind of powerlessness emerged in his heart. What can he do?
In such a home, the grandfather and grandmother are not kind, and the third uncle’s family feels at ease with sucking blood. The parents will only bury their heads in farming and never know how to plan for him.
What is the benefit of my reading this book?
Xu Ruiqing couldn’t help but think of the silly girl of the Mu Lie family——
If he wants to change the status quo and forcibly break a path, he can only…
But Mu Fanxing… he really didn’t dislike her stupidity, it was just that the other party was too lethal, and he was a little worried about his life.
But now he can’t consider this for long, and Hunter’s family has already considered buying a son-in-law back.
If he can’t make up his mind in the near future, he might not even be able to grasp the stupid girl of the Mu family!
Xu Ruiqing’s eyes flickered slightly, gradually becoming firm——
Bear Cub: UMMM__ It’s so funny that Xu Ruiqing is worried about his life by marrying Fanxing.
