- Chapter 5 - Housekeeper Gu
Yangliu village was not big. It only had a population of about hundred people. Whenever there would be a dispute in one’s family, it spread all over the village immediately. Hence a lot of people came to watch.
Everybody had heard about the Xia family. Secretly they scolded Xia Dinghai for not being a human and bullying his widowed sister-in-law and nieces, but no one dared to voiced their thoughts.
The Xia family was the ‘richest family’ in the village. Except for the First master Xia Dingshan, the other two brothers were arrogant and often used power to subdue people in the village.
Xia Qianqian squinted her eyes a little and noticed that there was a middle-aged man standing in the crowd who was particularly neatly dressed. He was looking at her and somewhat looked familiar.
Xia Qianqian recalled that this man was the housekeeper of the Gu family in the town. Didn’t he come here to see me, eh? Just in time!
Turning her eyes, Xia Qianqian thought about it and said in a loud voice, “Second uncle, there’s something I don’t quite understand. Whenever you open your mouth, you say that three of us are unlucky people, which killed my father. Then, why do you want to sell me to the Gu family in the town to be someone else’s wife? Aren’t you afraid that I will kill the young master of the Gu family, won’t you blame me?”
Xia Dinghai was choked by this single retort and was left speechless.
Song-shi suddenly whispered to herself: “Strange, why is this girl suddenly so sharp with her words?”
Xia Dinghai also felt strange, but he must drive away this girl now. With a straight face, he was about to speak when the person in the crowd came out and pointed at Xia Dinghai’s nose and started scolding: “Damn it, Xia Dinghai, you want to kill my young master!”
“Housekeeper Gu…” Xia Dinghai’s legs softened when he looked at the man. “Housekeeper Gu, why are you here?”
“The one who was supposed to be a chamber maid ran away. Our young master got angry and ordered us to take a look. Fortunately, I came to see, otherwise I wouldn’t know that your heart is so vicious!” Housekeeper Gu said while glaring at Xia Dinghai.
Xia Dinghai quickly tried to explain: “Housekeeper Gu, misunderstood…”
“There is no misunderstanding. If my mother didn’t agree to sell me, your young master might have been killed by me by this moment.” Xia Qianqian added fuel to the fire, lest that it was not enough trouble.
Qin-shi also understood what her daughter was doing. Today, she had to get rid of this suspicion of killing her husband, so that they could stay in Yangliu village. She said, “Housekeeper Gu, you must listen to what I have to say! Young master Gu was the one who helped my husband with his business. Although I’m a woman of lowly status, I know that I shouldn’t cheat a benefactor. I can’t let my daughter go to the young master Gu!”
After listening to all of this, housekeeper Gu exploded with anger. He raised his leg and kicked Xia Dinghai several times. He grabbed his collar and said, “Xia Dinghai, come with me and explain everything to Master Gu!”
“Housekeeper Gu, you have misunderstood me. My niece is such beautiful and kind lady. How can she bring bad luck? There’s no such thing at all. It was all made up by villagers for fun.” Xia Dinghai had no choice but to explain.
What Xia Qianqian waited for was this sentence: “Second Uncle, in this case, my family is innocent and there is no such thing as bringing bad luck for father, right?”
“Of course, of course!” Xia Dinghai had to nod his head in spite of his suffering.
“Then my father’s death has nothing to do with the three of us mother and daughter?” Xia Qianqian continued to ask, she must clean her name today.
“…Of course!” Xia Dinghai gritted his teeth and admitted.
Xia Qianqian smiled like a blomming flower. Although not stunning, it was pleasing to look at: “Then why do you ant to drive us out of Yangliu village?”
Xia Dinghai glare at Xia Qianqian. This little girl had actually tricked me, he was afraid that even housekeeper Gu was invited by her, if I refused to play along with her anymore, this will only annoyed housekeeper Gu, thinking so Xia Dinghai took few deep breaths to calm his mind and with a forced smiled, he said: “Yangliu Village is small, I’m afraid your mother will not be able to remarry of you stayed here, but the outside world is bigger with many choices.”
