Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
He Qisheng stayed at the cottage for 20 minutes and he talked with Wang Yao happily. He wanted to stay at the cottage longer, but the old senior officer in Jing City still waited for him, so he had to leave.
“Thanks for your entertainment. I look forward to our next meeting.”
He Qisheng brought the Regather soup from Wang Yao and then he went down the hill and rushed to Jing City.
In the afternoon, the sunlight was very comfortable and soft. Wang Yao drank a cup of tea and read a chapter of his book— he was content.
There was a noise that interrupted Wang Yao’s quiet life.
“Little Yao, I am here!”
Hearing the voice, Wang Yao sighed and kneaded his forehead.
“Hey.” Wang Ru entered the house happily. “Hey, what’s with your expression?”
“Nothing. Why do you come here?”
“It’s the weekend so I asked for these days off, so I could leave earlier. You bought a Tiguan? Why didn’t you tell me?” Wang Ru asked.
“Hey. I think you should stay in town even if you are free on the weekends so you can solve the issue of your future marriage. You should not worry about our family since I am here!”
“What do you mean? You have grown up and now you try to lecture your sis?!” Wang Ru rolled up her sleeves—she was going to twist Wang Yao’s ears.
“Sis, just be a lady. No one would marry you!”
“You are still reading books. What are these? Zhuangzi, Huangting Jing, Daode Jing. What are you trying to be? A monk?!” Wang Ru went to read several of the books on the table. Then, she stared at him with large eyes.
“I read them in my spare time and I have no plans to be a monk currently. Thank you.”
“Why are you still there? You should serve me a drink,” Wang Ru said.
Wang Yao made a pot of tea for his sister—Qimen black tea.
“Hey. It tastes good!” Wang Ru said after she had a taste. “What else do you have? Come show me.”
“Nothing,” Wang Yao said.
“Nothing? Impossible?” Wang Ru put down the teacup to look around. Then she found two bottles of wine in the corner and two packs of cigarettes. She went over to have a look. “What are these?”
“Moutai! Huanghelou!” Wang Ru was shocked.
She did not care about the cars, so she could not tell the difference between a Touareg and a Tiguan. However, she did know something about wine and cigarettes, especially these famous brands. All of these should cost thousands of yuan.
“They are not fake, are they?!” Wang Ru was shocked by these.
“My friend gave them to me. They should be real,” Wang Yao said.
“Really? Your friend is so generous. When are you going to introduce to me?” Wang Ru made a joke.
“He could be our uncle.” Wang Yao became so serious.
The quiet afternoon was interrupted by the coming of Wang Ru.
“Sis, you should go back and make dinner with Mom!”
“It is just 4 pm—it is too early to make dinner.”
“You can take the cigarettes and wine and tell Dad that you bought them for him. He will be so happy.”
“Bullshit. You think our dad knows nothing about brands? He would scold me for half the day if he knew that I bought these brand name things for him!” Wang Ru said.
“I am so busy!”
“What are you busy for? I’ve come to help you?!”
Wang Yao thought of something. “Sis, can you drive?”
“Of course. I have had my license for more than two years. Hey, give me your car keys and we can go practice,” Wang Ru said.
“The car keys are at home. You can go ask Mom and Dad.”
“Fine, I won’t mess with you anymore. Bye,” Wang Ru relented.
“Woo! You are finally leaving! Do not drive into the gully!” Wang Yao yelled at his sister who ran down from the hill.
“Got it,” she yelled back.
The cottage became quiet when Wang Ru left. In fact, Wang Yao did want his sister talk with him although she was noisy. He went to the table and waved his hand, and the book, Natural Classics appeared.
When it was dark, he went down from the hill to go back home to have dinner. Wang Yao took the presents given by He Qisheng when he went down with him.
“Where did you get these things?” Looking at the Moutai and Huanghelou brought by Wang Yao, Wang Fenghua knew that they must be so expensive from the packaging.
“My friend gave them to me.”
“Gave? They must be expensive,” Zhang Xiuying said.
“Ah. I don’t know,” Wang Yao smiled and said.
“Mom, I scanned these and the total price is more than 5000 yuan,” Wang Ru said.
“What? So expensive!?” Zhang Xiuying was shocked and Wang Fenghua also frowned. He did not know that it would be that expensive.
“It is so wasteful to just give them to your father. How about saving some for others?”
“Who do you want to give them to?” Wang Ru asked.
“All of these are for Dad. No one else,” Wang Yao said. “That’s it. Let’s hurry and have dinner, Mom!”
Soon, they had dinner. The whole family enjoyed their food happily.
“Yao, you should stay at home tonight,” Zhang Xiuying said.
“Yes. It is so rare that I come back and get to see you,” Wang Ru commented.
“I still worry about my field.” Wang Yao said. He had planted hundreds of new herbs, including several licorice roots.
Having finished dinner, Wang Yao did not go back to Nanshan hill but instead stayed to talk with his family. Then, they heard a noise from the door and someone entered the yard.
The visitor was the party secretary of the county—Wang Jianli.
“Ru is back.”
“Uncle, have a seat.”
Wang Yao stood up and made some tea. Wang Fenghua passed Jianli a cigarette that was unwrapped by Wang Yao.
Huh? Wang Jianli also knew something was up—these cigarettes must be expensive! He felt that they were different from the 10-yuan cigarette when he lit it.
“This is a good cigarette!” Wang Jianli exclaimed.
“Did you come for something, Jianli?” Zhang Xiuying smiled and asked.
“I came to find Yao,” Wang Jianli said.
“Come to my room and we can talk,” Wang Yao said.
The two of them went to Wang Yao’s room.
“What you mentioned in the county committee has been settled. They also promise that they won’t destroy the field anymore,” Wang Jianli spoke first.
“So who was the destroyer?”
“Shanfa and Shanyou.”
Wang Yao knew these two people. They sounded like brothers, but they actually had no relationship. They were around 30 or 40 years old but they were very childish and immature. They had no job or responsibilities, they hung around and did bad things. Especially, at the end of the year; they did more things to cause trouble then.
