FH Chapter 8 :八卦


A copper coin in those days was about the same as a modern money, and could buy a large meat bun, two white buns and four coarse buns, enough to feed a small child for a day, which was a rare ‘large sum’ for the stingy Liu family.


“Look like…”


Xiao Zhu scratched his head, suddenly he didn’t know how to describe it and couldn’t say a complete sentence after a long time. 


“Ai ya, you this boy, what’s so difficult to tell about how she looks?”


Liu was in a hurry.
She spent a lot of her hard work money and she wanted to know the result already. 


“Is she the cute little type?”


Li Haitang thought that since the rice shop owner had a lot of money, if the boss could afford to hire a maid to serve, Li Haitang felt that it wouldn’t be too bad if at least the servant is a clean young lady.


Xiao Zhu shook his head, his expression seemed a bit strange.


“What does she look like?”


This time, Liu was even more curious.
Besides, Xiao Zhu Zhi had been there for nearly a quarter of an hour, such a long time, so he must have been able to see the complete view of the bride. 


“I saw the bridegroom enter the bridal chamber, so I lean over the window and I dare not to speak.”


Xiao Zhu Zhi is around seven or eight years old.
He was a little ignorant about marriage.
His mother said that when he grew up, she would give him a good-looking wife from eight villages in ten villages.


“Oh? What did she say?”


Liu, who felt distressed over the money, was as excited as if she had been given a shot of chicken blood, and pulled Xiao ZhuZi to stand under the wall, sticking her ear out as she said patiently, “Just learn it once.”


“Xian Xian, what more could a husband ask for more than a wife like this?”


Xiao ZhuZi suddenly recited a sentence to Liu, but of course, he could not understand the meaning of such a bookish phrase to the illiterate young man.




Li Haitang almost burst out laughing, with the soundtrack of “A Cut of Plum” playing in the background, imagining Sun Xing as a scum man’s appearance, she rubbed her stomach and told herself to be calm, she didn’t have time to laugh at others now, after all, she wasn’t a free person yet.


“It’s the son of the widow who married the daughter of the rice shopkeeper, and Sun widow’s son is very satisfied.”


Liu is an adult after all, and she could understand these words, which appear so frequently in the opera troupe.


“What does the bride look like? Have you seen her face from the front?”


Sun widow’s son thinks so highly of her, is she more beautiful than her niece Haitang? Liu didn’t quite believe this.


Li Haitang did not look like a member of the Li family, but rather like her dead mother, even more beautiful, even if she wore a dress with a patch, it was hard to hide her beauty.


In theory, such a beautiful daughter should have been married a long time ago.
But the village people are very decent and conservative, and they think that if their son marries a beautiful wife, it will make their son confused and distracted from his family.


Moreover, Li Haitang is dainty and lovely.
She doesn’t look like the person that can work.
If you marry her, it’s like bringing in a big Buddha that you have to provide for her, no family would want to raise a loafer?


“You this kid, why don’t you just talk directly? You tell me,who do you look like?!”


Liu was so anxious that she stamped her foot.
She really wanted to hear the rest of the story, but XiaoZhuZi was so red in the face that she couldn’t find a word to describe it.
She was so anxious that she slapped her thigh, “For example, like me, or like your mother, or …”


“Like… like my dad!”


Xiao Zhuzi tilted his head, thought about it, and finally gave a certain conclusion.


“(Cough, cough, cough)!”


Liu was swallowing and almost choked on her own saliva again.
She smoothed her hand over her chest and then pulled out her ears.
Thinking that she had heard it wrong, she exclaimed, “What? Like your father?”
