- Chapter 15 - A Cry That Cut Through The Night
“Exactly! We’ll be doing a big business in the future.” Xia Qianqian started to blow a cow, in fact she didn’t plan anything other than her father’s business, but she couldn’t think of other ways to make money except for building a kiln and burning tiles. This family is so poor that there is nothing to do!
(T/N:- chuī niú (吹牛): “Blow cows” :- The literal meaning of this is to blow on cows and is used when someone makes an exaggerated claim about their abilities or more simply a boast.)
Yangliu Village was rich in kiln soil resources, so she didn’t need to spend extra money to get that soil. Now all she needed to do was, build a kiln, then go to the back of the mountain to collect firewood. After completing everything, she could finally start her business.
As Qin Shi was only a housewife, she had nothing to say with matters regarding business, all she could do was to worry about things: “Qianqian, do you really know how to build a kiln?”
“Yes.” Xia Qianqian was full of confidence.
Thanks to Gu Yanjing’s blessings, she got to know a little about porcelain. So, burning tiles wouldn’t be more difficult than porcelain, right? Even if the first time didn’t work, she could try the second time. She had always believed in the saying: Where there’s a will there’s a way. She would prove that without Gu Yanjing she could still live a good life.
“Mom, don’t worry. I have a plan. Tomorrow morning, I will take the seeds to the town and sell them for some money. With that sum of money, I will start buying bricks to build a kiln.” Xia Qianqian said.
Although at that moment Qin Shi’s eyes could not see, she could feel her daughter’s big ambition. Furthermore, she didn’t know how she was going to survive in the future and could only trust her daughter: “Alright.”
“Where is Yunyun?” Xia Qianqian asked.
“Yunyun has a fever and is already asleep.” Qin Shi said.
Xia Qianqian turned her head and saw a small bundle of human figure shrinking in a quilt, whose face was unusually flushed. Xia Qianqian reached out to touch and felt that the person was burning with fever.
Alas, the house leaked in the rain last night which caused the fever, now they didn’t have any money to get medicine. Xia Qianqian hurriedly got the water and a towel and put the wet cloth on Xia Yunyun’s forehead to subdue the fever. When Xia Yunyun’s fever was gone, only then Xia Qianqian went to bed.
Before sleeping, Xia Qianqian put a stool behind the door and put a bowl of water on the stool. Finally, a thick wooden stick was prepared next to the bed to prevent any accidents.
Today, she went back to the village and caused a huge ruckus and also beat Jiang Li. Tonight may not be a peaceful night.
That night, Xia Qianqian dared not sleep too deeply.
Sure enough, in the middle of the night, a rustling sound came from outside the door. Xia Qianqian opened her eyes and listened carefully, a cold smile hung around the corner of her lips: son of a b*tch! It’s only the first night in the village, someone still came to cause trouble!
Qin slept soundly with Qin Xia Yunyun in her arms, Xia Qianqian didn’t want to disturb them. She picked up the wooden stick that had been prepared before going to sleep and came to the door with light footsteps.
Jiang Li and Father Jiang were standing outside the door, laughing lustfully: Both mother and daughter are beauties, tonight father and son can get one for each to enjoy!
However, in order to prevent too much noise, they prepared the incense and let the smoke in through the cracks of the door.
The moment incense reached in, Xia Qianqian saw it and immediately covered her mouth and nose, took some water from the water bowl on the stool, dropped it on the incense.
Inside the incense was already extinguished, but outside the door, the happily waiting father and son from the Jiang family were still unaware of the happenings.
When they felt that the incense was almost burned, they broke into the house.
Behind the door, the stool with the bowl of water on it was turned upside down, following that a banging sound rang out throughout the house, in the silent night it was unusually loud, the Jiang family’s father and son were startled. Father Jiang tried to probe inside, Xia Qianqian took that moment to strike.
Father Jiang did not even cry out before he fell down. Jiang Li’s face changed greatly and rushed to pull his father up. His hand had just reached in, pop! A stick striked down, he clearly heard the sound of his hand bones breaking and let out a sharp cry: “Ah!!”
A sharp cry that cut through the night woke Qin Shi and Xia Yunyun up. The moment Qin Shi woke up she called in a panic: “Qianqian, Qianqian!”
Xia Yunyun saw the unconscious Father Jiang on the ground and the wailing Jiang Li. She was so scared that she let out a loud cry.
For a while, the child’s cry and Jiang Li’s scream shook the whole village.
