Xia Qianqian almost ran into his arms.
“Xia Qianqian, you have a really good luck, if you come with me to eat, then you don’t have to marry the stupid young master from the Gu family, as his concubine, come, let’s go and eat!” Jiang Li beamed as his eyes glowed with undisguised greed.
Xia Qianqian was the most beautiful girl in Yangliu Village. Many times, Jiang Li had shown his desire to marry her as his wife. He had even asked his parents to propose a marriage to the Xia family, but they were greatly humiliated by Xia Dingshan.
At that time, Xia Dinshan’s exact words were, “Get lost, a toad wishing to eat swan meat!”
Because of this, for a long time he couldn’t hold his head up in the village. Now that Xia Dinshan was dead and the Xia family didn’t care about Xia Qianxian’s life or death, how could he let her off just like that?
“Xia Qianqian, come with me, if we delay any further, the broth will cool down and it won’t taste good!” Jiang Li softened his voice and tried to coax her.
“Jiang Li. Did you forget what my father told you back then?” Xia Qian Qian raised her chin and looked at Jiang Li with disdain and arrogance, “A toad can never eat swan meat.”
After getting humiliated with the same words, Jiang Li got furious: “Xia Qianqian, stop being so shameless! Winter is about to start. Without a man to support you, your family won’t be able to survive for a long time!”
“Even if I were to starve and freeze to death, I would never come Looking for you.” Xia Qianqian sneered, “Good dogs don’t get in the way, get lost!”
Jiang Li refused to move, blocking Xia Qianqian. Staring at Xia Qianqian’s beautiful face, His eyes filled with certain greed. At this time, Xia Qianqian was limping with her injured legs, there weren’t any people around, this kind of good opportunity, he must strike first …
Not waiting for him to get any closer, Xia Qianqian narrowed her eyes threateningly: ” do you want to leave on your own or should I help you?”
“Xia Qianqian, do you think you are still the dignified young miss of the Xia family? Right now, you aren’t any better than a beggar. You should feel honoured that this young master took fancy to you … ouch!”
Before Jiang Li could even finish his words, he was knocked to the ground by Xia Qianqian’s punch.
Xia Qianqian took her fist back with a ruffian-like smile, “You should be glad that my legs are hurting, otherwise I’d have sent you flying with one kick.”
Whether ancient or modern, fighting techniques were always used by everyone. In addition to these techniques, she had extraordinary strength. It can be considered as a blessing in disguise, this strength from her past life and soul were both linked, so when she transmigrated to this place, with her soul came her extraordinary strength.
Jiang Li had his hand over his punched nose, two trails of crimson blood dripped out of his fingers. He looked at Xia Qian Qian in disbelief, “You, you ……”
“I love beating dogs the most, so next time feel free to block my path, I’ll serve you properly. No need to thank me.” Xia Qianqian gave a bright smile before limping away.
Jiang Li lay on the ground and after a long time got up. Out of nowhere, he burst into tears with a “wahhh” sound and ran home: “Father, mother, someone beat me …”
Xia Qianqian, who was walking not far away, felt chills all over her body and almost fell on the ground: Holy s̲h̲i̲t̲! How old are you for running to your mother after getting beaten? Don’t you feel ashamed?! Where is your pride?!
The village chief’s residence was not far, so Xia Qianqian quickened her pace and went to the village chief’s residence, not waiting for Jiang Li’s parents to find troubles with her.
As a village chief, Fan Ming, was a very polite person: “Qianqian is here, please sit down. Have you eaten? I’ll ask your Aunt to bring you a bowl of rice.”
“No need to trouble yourself, I’ve already eaten.” Xia Qianqian quickly shook her head in denial. When she passed by the kitchen just now, she saw that Liu-shi was already cleaning dishes.
“Today what the Xia family did… sigh!” Fan Ming sighed. He knew that the division was unfair, but whenever Xia Qianqian asked for anything, Grandma Xia threatened them with her life, this made him unable to help.
“Uncle Fan, let’s not mention the past events, today I came here to ask for a piece of the land.” Xia Qianqian without any hesitation, stated her objectives.
Fan Ming thought for a moment before saying, “Okay, this can be done easily. Back then, when your father was still alive, he had donated silver to the village for building a road. I can convince villagers to give you land of good quality. When do you want it?”
“Qianqian, the autumn harvest is over now, the sowing will not start before spring. If I were to give you good land now, I’m afraid that the Xia family will come looking for troubles with you . How about we wait a little longer before doing anything?”
