Zi You looked at these people and loudly said, with a smile, “After eating the noodle soup, we will go to the Manor. From now on, regardless of what happened before and what misfortune you’ve encountered, I hope you can forget them all. Cherish the opportunity I gave you to start a new life. Alright, let’s eat.”
Everyone looked at the meat and eggs in the hot noodle soup and was as happy as if they were seeing bird’s nest or shark’s fin.
Many years later, these people could still remember the delicious taste of that pot of noodle soup.
It was already sunset. The ground was covered in a fuzzy rose color.
The people in the market hurriedly went home already. The busy streets in the daytime became silent.
When the stars could be seen in the sky, Zi You took the forty-nine slaves and returned to the General’s Manor.
Zi You’s grandfather, uncle and aunt already had servants keeping watch at the door. The servants rushed inside to notify Old General Mu and Mu YingYi when they saw the carriage. The two hurriedly rushed out.
One day without seeing their loved one and Zi You seemed as if a prodigal son returning home. She did not use a stool to step down from the carriage, but anxiously jumped down into the arms of Old General Mu. “Grandfather, You’er [’er: suffix used to denote closeness/intimacy] really missed you.”
One sentence had Old General Mu feeling endless tenderness. Petting her cloud-like black hair, he laughingly said, “You’re missing grandfather after only being away for one day? What would happen in the future when you get married?”
Zi You listened and frowned in disgust. The sentence “I won’t get married” was almost blurted out.
