YuanQiu lightly smiled and her bright eyes swept over YuanHao. She winked at him and turned to look back at Xia Tieniu. “Dabo doesn’t know. When I went with Uncle Zhang to sell wild vegetables in the market today, I met a pitiful woman.
“Her husband and son accidentally fell off the mountain. Her husband died on the spot. Her son was seriously injured, but she had no money to treat him. I thought that she was pitiful, so I gave the 100 silvers to her for her to bury her husband and treat her son.
“If it wasn’t enough money, I told her that she could come find me in Xipo Village. I would think of some way to gather money for her. But Dabo knows that my brother and I had many hard days in these few years. We didn’t save any money.
“If that woman really comes, my brother and I have no relatives, so we can’t raise money for her. But now, Dabo and your family are so kind to help YuanHao out and accumulate good fortune.”
Xia Teiniu jumped up angrily. He pointed to YuanQiu and cursed angrily, “You wastrel! You think that you have money to burn? You actually gave 100 silvers to others. If you are so kind, why don’t you give me some to spend?”
YuanQiu widened her pair of beautiful eyes. She asked curiously, “What are you saying, Dabo? Her husband died and her son was dying. At such a critical time, I should naturally lend a hand. This is the so-called ‘saving a person is better than building a seven-story pagoda.’ Money can be earned again, but a life lost cannot be changed.
“Should I have watched with open eyes while the person died because of a little bit of money? Not to mention, Dabo and his family are healthy and living well. Why would you need this junior’s financial help?”
Xia Tieniu knew that she was eloquent and had a glib tongue. He would not be able to win over her in speech, so he asked directly, “Did you really give the 100 silvers away? You didn’t keep any?”
