Sweet Rustic Love: Four Brothers' Wife Chapter 39
He might have been flippant when he spoke, but it was this personality that allowed him to talk about the past that easily, so that everyone felt less heavy about the subject.
"Liu, you said Mo went to school. But why is it that I can't feel any scholarly temperament or gentleness from him? He's always so irritable and unreasonable!" She always thought that any one of the four could have gone to school except him, but why was he chosen?
She couldn't figure it out!
Hearing that, sadness spread on Ye Liu's face as he said, "Well, he's just lucky, I guess."
"Yang couldn't go because the old hag didn't allow it. She said we didn't have the money. As for me, I was too effeminate, she said. Should do more work, become more manly!"
When talking about himself, he was obviously grinding his teeth. What did that old hag mean by effeminate? He was clearly very handsome!
"As for Mo, dad spoke up. He said he wanted at least one of his kids to be literate, so off he went!"
"Then we have Ling…" Liu looked as his brother regrettably, "Because of his feet, he couldn't go."
It had always been like this. The kingdom ruled that disabled bodies were not allowed in school!
Hearing all that, Ye Mo was really lucky. Liu Duo looked at Ye Ling's feet. She really could not understand how he could be born with one leg shorter than the other, and had to stumble as he walked.
Otherwise, he should have had the chance to go to school, shouldn't he? Even if he couldn't take the exam, he could learn to read and write, and that was fine too.
"Liu, how long did Mo study at school?" Liu Duo tilted her head as she looked at him.
"Hey, Little Duo, why are you so concerned about Mo?" Ye Liu raised his brow.
Ye Ling was not as nosy as his brother. "Mo went for three years. He was about to take his exams when dad got into the accident, so he didn't go. Otherwise he would have passed."
Liu Duo pouted her mouth in disbelief.
"Let's not talk about him. Liu, let's go to town tomorrow," she changed the topic. The past was in the past.
Ye Liu knew what she wanted to do in town, so he quickly agreed. "Sure, I can look for suitable work as well."
He got up and breathed out heavily. "We leave early tomorrow. Little Duo, better not oversleep!"
Yang was now busy hunting in the hills, so he should not be taking a break.
Ye Ling turned around and continued with his sewing, as Liu Duo looked on next to him. The longer she watched, the more favour she felt for him. How could he look so elegant? Give it a few more years and he would be even more attractive.
Ye Liu sat beside her and saw her staring at Ling with a sleazy grin on her face, and teased her. "I say, Little Duo, please don't ogle at Ling like that. You'll frighten him."
Ling was already red in the face and, after what Liu said, he only got redder. Though he was hanging his head low, he could see Liu Duo out of the corner of his eye, which he had been doing secretly.
"I'm not ogling! Don't say it as if I'm like you!"
Tch, no fun! I was obviously just admiring him? She defended in her thoughts.
Everyone appreciates beauty. That includes people as ordinary as Liu Duo herself. She might not have had relationships with men in her past life, but she loved seeing those handsome idols in dramas, and she never followed blindly.
Now her husband looked just like those pop stars, and with no screen in between them, of course she would take her time and observe in detail.
If only she could see the expression on her own face as she stared at Ye Ling, she would have agreed with Ye Liu.
