Little fatty half-opened his tired eyes. He asked, puzzled, “Mother, you’re crying?”
Aunt Zhang wiped the tears from her face, “Mother didn’t cry. Mother is happy. If you’re tired, go to sleep. Mother will make something delicious for you.”
Little fatty nodded, closed his eyes, and went to sleep.
Aunt Zhang told Old Zhang to bring their son into the house. She told him to wash their son’s body and change him into clean clothes. Old Zhang left without a word. Aunt Zhang walked over to YuanQiu, all smiles. She was about to kneel and kowtow, but YuanQiu quickly held her up. She didn’t like Aunt Zhang, but she liked little fatty. She was willing to save him. She didn’t need such a big gesture. “Aunt Zhang, you definitely can’t be like this. Little fatty and YuanHao are best friends. He often comes to my house to play. I willingly saved him. You don’t need to keep it in your heart.”
Aunt Zhang was sharp and unkind and didn’t have a good temper. She even bullied the siblings. But she was an understanding person. Without YuanQiu, her lifeblood would have been gone. YuanQiu saved little fatty, but she also saved her family.
“Qiu guniang [Young unmarried miss, girl, lady], I was at fault before and treated you and your brother badly. But you can rest assured, as long as Old Zhang and I are here, no one here in Xipo Village would bully you two,” Aunt Zhang promised.
YuanQiu believed these words. In the previous host’s memory, Aunt Zhang was coarse and tough and her strength wasn’t weak either. In a fight, not to mention women, but even ordinary men might not be able to beat her. Her husband, Old Zhang, also knew some martial arts. Although he was not an expert, but it was enough to deal with some villagers. In Xipo Village, there really was no one who would dare mess with them.
YuanQiu was thanking her, when a villager smiled and said, “Aunt Zhang, you have to mean the words you say. I just saw Liu’s fourth daughter-in-law sneakily took two baskets to YuanQiu’s vegetable garden.”
