Chapter 287: Taking Responsibility.
Before coming, Ji Siying read through Xiao Luo’s data files. She was very clear about a series of things Xiao Luo did in Jiang city, especially the murder in Long Sankui’s villa on the night of heavy rain, which made her feel that this was a complete devil. At that time, she also asked her superiors why the NSA would want to take in such a person but only got a word as a reply: confidential.
So although Xiao Luo looked like an ordinary person, she knew that this was all outside appearance, the real Xiao Luo was one with his hands covered in blood.
She suddenly asked, “Mr. Xiao Luo, may I ask you a question?”
Xiao Luo was reading the current affairs and news on his mobile phone, drinking tea and smiling, “Yes.”
“Why did you destroy the Dragon Gang?” Ji SiYing asked.
She was an irrepressible girl, if she could not get an answer to this question, she would always think about it.
“Because some things must be done by someone, and I, who just happened to be at that point in time, stood out and did it.” Xiao Luo silently smiled.
Ji Siying nodded her head.
“Xiao Luo, time to eat!”
At this moment, the grandma’s voice called for dinner came from below.
Xiao Luo put down his cell phone and teacup, he got up: “Let’s go and eat.”
Ji Siying obeyed.
When Xiao Luo went downstairs, she quickly took out a small notebook and wrote down: Xiao Luo loved reading current affairs and news, and drinking Tieguanyin tea.
Grandpa and grandma liked Ji Siying very much. Since Ji Siying came, the two old people have been smiling all the time. Grandma was very active. Besides caring and being attentive to Ji Siying, she also asked how many people were in her family, including how many brothers and sisters.
Ji Siying had long been ready to answer these questions.
Next door, aunt Tao Xiu dropped by with a large plate of fried purple potato bags and took the opportunity to see Xiao Luo’s girlfriend.
“Hello aunt!” Ji Siying politely said hello.
“Good, good, Siying is polite and beautiful, Xiao Luo, you are blessed.” Aunt Tao Xiu was very happy for Xiao Luo from the bottom of her heart.
Xiao Luo didn’t know what to say, this Ji Siying was only a fake girlfriend.
As the New Year was approaching, the pigs, fish and ducks raised on the farm would be taken out of the warehouse. The pigs and fish would be collected by people on their doorsteps without much effort. The meat and ducks would be transported to the small town market to be sold.
Luo Village was located in the south, and the most prominent feature in winter was the sudden increase in rainfall.
When the market day came, Xiao Luo did not become a big uncle at home and did nothing to help. He went to the market with his father and mother to help. It was inevitable that some people would fish in troubled waters when business was good, and many people would always feel more relaxed.
The rain trickled down, but the market was very lively. The cold rain could not disperse the enthusiasm of the villagers who visited the market.
“Son, I heard about a very rich girlfriend, and she came?” Hua Heying asked.
Xiao Luo explained: “Mom, she is not a girlfriend, but a friend.”
“Don’t be careless here. The girl even came here voluntarily. You must be responsible to her.” Xiao ZhiYuan suddenly inserted a sentence.
“Dad, it’s not what you think. I’m definitely not going to marry her.”
“What did you say, you want to be Chen Shimei?”
Xiao Zhiyuan’s eyes widened angrily. “You boy must be half-hearted and look at the pot in a bowl. I will never forgive you.”
Xiao Luo felt his head hurt.
“Master, how much do you sell this duck meat?” A customer asked the price.
“Sixteen dollars a kilo.”
Xiao Zhiyuan walked over and grabbed one from the iron cage and showed it to the customers. “Look at how beautiful and fat it is, and be sure when you change all the feathers. It’s very easy to pluck after cooking. Buy one.”
“No, no, it’s too expensive.” The customer shook his head at the price.
“Did you grow it with rice or fodder?” Another customer came along.
“Uncle, if anyone tells you that his ducks have not been fed with feed, then he must be lying. He feeds all the rice until it grows up. The rice it eats will be enough to buy three or four such ducks. Those who sell ducks have to earn money. Wouldn’t it be futile to have no money to earn back?” Xiao Zhiyuan, honest and frank will not deceive customers.
“Master, why are the feathers on your duck’s head white? I’m buying them for New Year’s Day and slaughter them for luck. Killing white-headed ducks is unlucky.”
“Your ducks are too fat. I don’t need them to be so big.”
“It’s all drakes. I want to buy a mother duck.”
Many customers were complaining and criticizing, but Xiao Zhiyuan and Hua Heying both responded enthusiastically with a smile.
Xiao Luo watched this man and this woman, the ones who raised him, his parents. With their hard work, they carried the burden of the family, they were unaware that their clothes were almost wet by the rain, still standing there.
It was false to say that one would not feel distressed. Xiao Luo could now give his parents a better life, but his father Xiao Zhiyuan refused. Everyone had dreams, and Xiao Zhiyuan was no exception. Xiao Zhiyuan wanted to realize his dreams.
“Dad, I’ll take care of the farm after the New Year.” Xiao Luo said.
