Chapter 219.1 – Educated Youth (4a)
“Thank you,” Gu Mingxiu said, feeling like his nose was blocked, and his voice was not quite right.
He was really confused.
In just a short time, he experienced an earthquake in his heart, and he was almost shocked silly.
He has always known that his second younger sister likes to take advantage of the public storage.
He felt that this was not good, but other people in the village would do the same, and he didn’t know how to teach his second younger sister.
But he really didn’t expect that his second younger sister would steal things.
Of course, the most terrifying thing is that his oldest younger brother actually wrote such reactionary words!
Fortunately, Yan educated youth is a good person, and he didn’t say anything.
What’s more, Yan educated youth is still willing to be friends with him.
The ignorance of the younger siblings and Yan Jing Ze saying that they were friends, mixed together in Gu Mingxiu’s mind, making his whole mind a little confused.
Yan Jing Ze can’t help but worry when he sees Gu Mingxiu like this.
He wanted Gu Mingxiu to stay away from his younger siblings and stop being so nice to his younger siblings in order to give them a heavy punishment, but this was a bit of a blow to Gu Mingxiu.
Also, he is a traverser, and the original owner himself is a person who does not care about the rules, so he doesn’t take those written reactionary words seriously, but at this time, let alone write, some people may be scared just by seeing them.
“Don’t worry, it’s okay, they are still young, so just teach them well,” Yan Jing Ze comforted Gu Mingxiu in a soft voice.
“I don’t know how to teach, I promised my mother to take care of them, I…” Gu Mingxiu’s voice choked a little and then suddenly stopped.
Gu Mingxiu felt a little weird.
In the past, no matter how miserable he was, no matter how tired he was, he would hold on, but Yan Jing Ze comforted him, and it made him a little bit want to cry.
He is crazy!
“You have me.” Yan Jing Ze said: “But there is one thing you have to know, spoiling your son is like killing him.”
“What?” Gu Mingxiu was a bit confused.
“It means that spoiling the child is equivalent to harming the child.” Yan Jing Ze said: “Look, you give Gu Yubao whatever he wants. The family is so poor and his grades are not good, you still let him go to school, which made him unwilling to do some work even on vacation. Isn’t this harming him?”
“It’s all my fault……”
“It’s not your fault. It’s that he doesn’t know how to be grateful. There are some people who don’t become unscrupulous, even if they are spoiled.” Yan Jing Ze said: “But in the future, if there are some delicious food at home, you must not give it to him. You can no longer spoil him.”
“Okay.” Gu Mingxiu nodded. He will leave the eggs for Yan educated youth to eat tomorrow.
“Actually, your youngest brother, you can’t spoil him either,” Yan Jing Ze said.
Gu Mingxiu was taken aback.
“Isn’t he a little stupid? The more such a child is, the more he must learn the skills to make a living,” Yan Jing Ze said.
Gu Yukang is a bit stupid. This is generally accepted, but he is not stupid-stupid. Basically, it is okay for such a person to train well so that he can take care of himself and learn to farm.
Anyway, he can’t be spoiled.
“He is still young…”
“He’s not young, he’s already six years old.” Yan Jing Ze said: “You are spoiling him now, what about in the future? Your family members all help him, but others will not.”
Yan Jing Ze brainwashed Gu Mingxiu, and talked about it a little—Gu Mingxiu must take care of himself first.
Unfortunately, after talking for a while, they had to go back to work.
After hearing what Yan Jing Ze said, Gu Mingxiu felt more and more that Yan Jing Ze had the ability—people from this big city were different, they understood everything. He suddenly became sober.
He looked at Yan Jing Ze with a little admiration.
Then he saw Yan Jing Ze procrastinating and continued picking sweet potatoes much slower than others…
Gu Mingxiu: “…”
Everyone worked for a day, and when they finally got off work, Yan Jing Ze was already suffering from backache.
To pick up sweet potatoes, you have to bend over, it’s too tiring. Of course, he would become like this mainly because the original owner had done too little farm work before.
The original owner’s body is very good, and his strength is not small, otherwise he wouldn’t be able to beat Gu Yubao like that. But people, it takes time for them to adapt to the same work or the same exercise.
Putting the sweet potato back in the temple, Yan Jing Ze returned to his home again.
When he got home, Gu Yulan and Gu Yubao were both there.
His house has been cleaned up and the sheets and quilts have been washed and dried. The whole house is completely different from when he first arrived.
“Yan educated youth, I helped clean it up for you.” Gu Yulan looked at Yan Jing Ze politely, as for Gu Yubao… Although Gu Yubao was modest, he still looked a little dissatisfied.
Yan Jing Ze said, “Yes, you can go back today. As for tomorrow… Gu Yubao, did your sister tell you? Starting tomorrow, you have to work hard and earn work points for me.”
“Why…” Before Gu Yubao finished speaking, Yan Jing Ze said, “Because I saw you wrote something like that.”
“That’s what you wrote!” Gu Yubao gritted his teeth.
“Gu Yubao, don’t shirk your responsibility like that. How could my handwriting be so ugly?” Yan Jing Ze looked at Gu Yubao a little helplessly, as if he was watching an unreasonable kid.
Gu Yubao felt that the person in front of him was too shameless!
But before he could refute, he was stopped by Gu Yulan: “Gu Yubao, let’s go home!”
Gu Yubao didn’t want to leave, but as soon as he looked up, he met Yan Jing Ze’s cold eyes.
He shivered, he didn’t dare to argue with Yan Jing Ze, and followed Gu Yulan.
But he sent his anger to Gu Yulan and said angrily: “Gu Yulan, you should call me older brother!”
“On what grounds?” Gu Yulan won’t give Gu Yubao face, she has always hated Gu Yubao.
Why is Gu Yubao treated so well at home?
Now, Gu Yubao has harmed her… it was wrong for her to steal things, but now she has returned her pen. If she doesn’t admit, Yan Jing Ze will have no proof. But Gu Yubao has written something like that and it still falls into Yan Jing Ze’s hands.
Gu Yubao harmed her!
Gu Yulan even wanted to scratch Gu Yubao’s face.
“I really didn’t write it!” Gu Yubao tried to explain, but Gu Yulan didn’t believe it.
If Yan educated youth have no grievances with them, why frame them?
Moreover, Yan educated youth did not force them to give food or anything on the spot. They only asked Gu Yubao to work in the village to earn work points. Also exchange food and money for him at the end of the year…
Yan educated youth has been good enough. As for food and money, who doesn’t know that Yan educated youth is too lazy and owes debts? He should want the money to pay off his debts?
The two people argued and got home in a short while.
The taste of roasted sweet potatoes permeated the house. Gu Yulan was okay. She had eaten it and ate it again at noon. She ate it secretly in the afternoon and was not hungry. But Gu Yubao’s box lunch was robbed by Yan Jing Ze today and he hadn’t eaten anything…
For the first time, he knew that sweet potatoes smelled so good!
Gu Yubao ran to the kitchen immediately.
But before he ran over, he was blocked by Gu Mingxiu who was holding the doorbolt: “Gu Yubao, what have you done?!”
Gu Yubao: “…”
This afternoon, he learned that Yan Jing Ze had shown his notebook to Gu Yulan. Gu Yubao was already helpless, but he didn’t expect his brother to know it too.
What kind of grudge did Yan educated youth have against him to harm him like this?
Also, what is his brother holding? This is the door bolt! Is his brother going to break his legs?
Gu Mingxiu did not want to break his brother’s legs, he threw the bolt and went up to beat him.
Gu Yubao, who had received two beatings from Yan Jing Ze during the day, received another beating from his own brother.
“Brother, it was not written by me, it was written by Yan Jing Ze, he imitated my handwriting!”
“Nonsense!” Gu Mingxiu said, “Why would Yan educated youth do that?”
“He must have wanted our family to work for him as cattle and horses!” Gu Yubao said.
“If Yan educated youth really have the ability to imitate other people’s writing and write exactly the same thing, he can blackmail the village chief. Why find us? Our family is so poor!” Gu Ming Xiu said, looking at his brother disappointedly.
His brother really needs to be educated.
Otherwise… he’s going to get into trouble sooner or later this way.
“What I said is true, and he even took my lunch away from me,” Gu Yubao said.
“Yan educated youth told me about this matter. He said that you didn’t want him to spread the matter so that you gave him the food,” Gu Mingxiu said. Yan Jing Ze also told him about this matter, and Yan Jing Ze also gave him the egg back.
Gu Yubao: “…” He never thought that one day he would be wrongly accused like this, with no way to beg for help.
He is too miserable!
Gu Yubao was beaten, and Gu Yulan did not escape either. They were hit several times by Gu Mingxiu with a bamboo board.
Compared to Gu Yubao who refused to admit his mistake, Gu Yulan obediently admitted her mistake, so she was beaten much less.
His four younger siblings don’t have the same dad with him. Gu Mingxiu has never beaten his younger siblings before.
However, today, he is still ruthless in the end.
After the fight, Gu Mingxiu let them eat and sleep, and let Gu Yubao go to work with him tomorrow.
Gu Yubao: “…” He really doesn’t want to go to work!
Speaking of which, what exactly does Yan Jing Ze want to do?
He had never done farm work before, and even if he went to the field, there’s only more than three months left until the end of the year, he wouldn’t earn much work points…
Why didn’t Yan Jing Ze frame other people and just targeted him?
Although Yan Jing Ze didn’t know about Gu’s family affairs, he could guess it.
His sheets and covers are not all dry yet, but his bed is covered with straw, the lining of that quilt is also there, and it is not impossible to sleep.
After barely sleeping, Yan Jing Ze set off for the town early the next morning.
