Uncle Zhang might not know how to speak well, but he was not stupid. He knew that YuanQiu was giving him a cheap advantage. He wanted to refuse, but he gritted his teeth and agreed when he thought of little fatty’s future.
YuanHao was the happiest when he heard that they were buying an ox cart. After all, he was only ten years old and still a child. Little Liu Si had once shown off in front of him and little fatty about his family’s ox cart. YuanHao would never forget that arrogant expression of his. Now, his family was going to buy an ox cart. How could he not be happy?
When Uncle Zhang drove the two ox carts back to the village, a large group of people were gathered at the entrance to YuanQiu’s home. They were discussing and making noise about something.
Uncle Zhang asked, “Didn’t I find someone to start building the new house today? It’s already afternoon. Why is the old house not taken down yet?”
Someone with sharp eyes saw that Uncle Zhang returned with two ox carts. The Xia siblings were each in one. Xia YuanQiu sat in the Liu family’s ox cart, but Xia YuanHao sat in another obviously-new ox cart.
Liu Si was in the crowd. He saw that Uncle Zhang returned with his ox cart and went over to take the rope that Uncle Zhang handed to him. He pointed to the other ox cart. “Whose ox cart is this?”
YuanHao immediately stood up and patted his little chest. “It’s ours.”
YuanQiu added, “It’s ours and Uncle Zhang’s.” She winked at Uncle Zhang.
Uncle Zhang nodded. He knew about YuanQiu’s worry. If they said YuanQiu bought it, her Dabo and DaboMu would be envious and would certainly come over to borrow it every few days. In the end, the ox cart would somehow belong to their family. This was something that Xia Tieniu’s family could certainly do.
