The sky was completely dark when they reached home.
It was about 9 pm. Mo Beihan sent Gu Qingyao to her home and passed her two fish, the ones she washed earlier.
He also gave her two rabbits and a chicken. He wanted her to take the river deer but Gu Qingyao did not want so much meat. She only needed some to show that they were fruitful.
"I'll come and pick you up tomorrow morning."
They planned to go to the town tomorrow.
Gu Yunshen kept waiting as his daughter was not home yet. He walked out immediately as he heard voices in the yard.
Mo Beihan greeted Gu Yunshen and left.
Gu Yunshen helped Gu Qingyao take everything in. He looked towards the direction where Mo Beihan left and smiled, "This guy is really capable."
The trip into the mountain must be fruitful.
Gu Qingyao smiled and walked inside with her father.
"I have eaten with Brother Beihan on the mountain. I'll go back to my room later."
Gu Yunshen nodded and said, "Okay. There's hot water in the kitchen. You can take a shower and rest early!"
Zhang Xiaohui and Gu Ruoqing came out of the room and ran over to see what Gu Qingyao brought back.
She went out with Mo Beihan this time. Every time Mo Beihan came back and headed towards the mountain, he would bring many things for the Gu Family. It must be the same for today.
They were delighted as they saw the chicken, rabbit and fish in Gu Qingyao's hands!
"Woh! There's meat, Mom! We get to eat fish tomorrow!"
Zhang Xiaohui was in joy as well, "Yes! We'll have fish tomorrow! It's been long since we last ate fish. It was so exhausting during the autumn harvest. Time to eat some meat."
Gu Yunshen and Gu Qingyao did not even bother to talk to them. She passed everything to Gu Yunshen and headed towards her room.
"Wait! Where's the meat at home? Where did you hide the meat and the flour?" Gu Ruoqing asked.
Gu Qingyao turned back and twitched her lips as she stared at Gu Ruoqing. Gu Ruoqing was indeed still a child and did not learn from her own mistakes. She had forgotten about the beating yesterday?
"How will I know. They are always at home. Ask your mom why our meat and flour disappeared. Every time when something went missing at home, she was always the one who took them, right?"
Gu Ruoqing was stunned and looked at Zhang Xiaohui.
It made… some sense.
Zhang Xiaohui was enraged, "Stop all the nonsense! When I woke up this morning, there was nothing left in the kitchen. You're the only one who went out today. Who else would take away those things besides you?"
"Yes. You were the one who locked the kitchen door yesterday. The things went missing this morning. Who else can it be?" Gu Ruoqing tried to advocate for her mother.
Gu Qingyao sneered, "What can you do to me? I just don't want to tell you. This is my home. I can do whatever I want. Furthermore, even Father did not say anything. So, just shut up!"
Zhang Xiaohui totally raged. She didn't even get to eat the meat at home. She went back to her mother's place to help with the harvest. She thought that there would be good food waiting for her when she came back but in the end, there was nothing left.
Not only the meat, there was no flour or rice left at all. She starved for the whole day yesterday and today she had to eat the coarse grain that was difficult to swallow even.
"Gu Qingyao, the home does not belong to you only. The meat is for everyone. Why could you take them away? Take them out and cook a few nice dishes for us. Your sister and I almost did not eat anything for the past two days."
Gu Qingyao scoffed, "You want meat? Sure! Do your job at home and you won't starve. If you still laze around, there will not even be coarse grain for you! Don't dream about meat."
