“Xue Yan, Jiang Yue, you’re here too. Is it about the oil? Hurry up and go in, Erfu and the others are inside.”
Without waiting for them to enter, the woman shouted at Xue Dagui, “Dagui, what do you mean by letting Zhuzi be my man’s son? Are you bullying me for not giving birth to a son but a daughter? Now Zhuzi is still in my house and won’t leave no matter what. I’m telling you, if you don’t take him back, I won’t let you off!”
Xue Dagui was still grinning. “Don’t get mad. Meili has returned to her mother’s house. I have a lot of things to do now. My oil lucked out. I can’t do it today, and I might not be able to do it tomorrow. Wait for a few days. I’ll definitely go and fetch Zhuzi back in a few days. Why would you think that way? I didn’t mean it that way. I was just in a fit of anger. Didn’t Zhuzi, that b*astard, say that your husband was a good man?”
When the woman heard this, she became even angrier. “Why does he like Zhuzi so much? Even if he hit it off with Zhuzi, he’s not his son. I’ve given birth to so many daughters for him, which one of them isn’t his biological daughter? He’s not as good to me as he is to Zhuzi!”
Jiang Yue and Xue Yan, who had already entered the courtyard stopped in their tracks and looked at each other.
Xue Yan thought it was strange.
Before this, he didn’t know that his uncle’s treatment of his biological daughters added up wasn’t as good as Xue Zhuzi’s, so he didn’t find it too strange. He really thought that his uncle just hit it off with Xue Zhuzi, but now it seemed… That things weren’t that simple.
Could it be that Xue Zhuzi wasn’t Dagui’s biological child, but was actually the child of his eldest aunt’s father?
Jiang Yue and Xue Yan both saw this speculation in each other’s eyes.
Then, Jiang Yue lowered her voice and asked, “Is there any similarity between Xue Zhuzi and that man?” She knew of her uncle, but she had never seen him before, so she could only ask him. And what he had seen.
“I never noticed anything,” Xue Yan shook his head.
There was nothing similar.
Jiang Yue understood.
“But Xue Zhuzi doesn’t look like Dagui at all,” Xue Yan continued.
Jiang Yue understood even more. Xue Zhuzi looked more like Zhang Meili, but he didn’t look like Xue Dagui or her uncle. However, he was born in the third year after Zhang Meili married Xue Dagui, so no matter how good her uncle was to Xue Zhuzi, no one had ever suspected that Xue Zhuzi wasn’t their biological son.
“Do you think that’s possible?” Jiang Yue asked.
“Generally speaking, people are more partial to their own children.” Xue Yan was silent for a moment.
It didn’t make sense for him to dote on someone else’s son more than his own daughters.
Jiang Yue nodded.
“Do you want me to find out?”
“There’s no irrefutable evidence yet, so let’s not tell Dagui about it,” said Xue Yan. After hesitating for a moment, he added, “Dagui’s death is coming.”
Jiang Yue was stunned. She instantly understood what he meant.
In his previous life, Xue Dagui died very early.
“When?” Jiang Yue asked.
“In three days.” Xue Yan said.
“What do you plan to do?”
“For the sake of Grandpa, I can’t let him die.” His grandpa still doted on Dagui a lot. In his previous life, Wufu and Dagui had passed away one after another, which had been a particularly big blow to his grandfather. In this life, he would not let his grandfather suffer such a blow again.
