Chapter 539: Plucking the Hair from A Tiger’s Head
The two brothers had completely fallen out.
The moment they left, Xie Niushan finally had his peace. He said to Xie Qiao, “You little girl is too smart. Even I’ve been tricked by you!”
She had long known about Xie Mangshan’s matter, which was why she had made the bet!
Now, all the money in the family was gone!
Xie Niushan looked at his two daughters.
His imposing manner was also gone.
He did not dare to provoke the eldest one. As for the younger one, she was just a tiny little girl. She was a timid person to begin with, so he was not afraid of her either.
His son was still the best. He could beat him up whenever he wanted to.
“Xi’er, has your second brother been well-behaved recently?” Xie Niushan could not help but ask.
Xie Pinggang was now older, so it was not easy for him to do anything to him. He took advantage of the fact that the younger one was not able to resist now and bullied him for a few years. He felt happy in his heart.
Xie Xi’s bright eyes looked at Xie Niushan, and then she nodded solemnly. “Second Brother is very obedient.”
Much more obedient than before.
Xie Niushan sighed. “If that kid bullies you, remember to tell me. Father will teach him a lesson for you.”
Xie Xi felt that it was strange.
She lowered his head, said nothing, and ignored him.
Xie Niushan initially thought that this house was quiet. However, the peace did not last long. Someone came from outside. It was actually a troupe. They said that they heard that he had returned from the bandit suppression, so they came specially to celebrate.
In addition, they had arranged three plays for him to watch.
Xie Niushan had just returned to the capital. He would rest for a few days. Therefore, he had nothing to do at home. Now that Xie Xi was in charge of money, if he wanted to go out for a drink, he would not be able to. It was rare for an opera troupe to come to his door for free, he could not refuse them no matter what.
He invited them in.
The opera troupe set up a stage in the courtyard.
In the evening, they were going to start performing. There were three plays for Xie Niushan to choose from.
Xie Niushan did not know much. Although he could read, he did not know much. There was a lot of content in the plays, so how could he read them? He had to choose according to the name.
These three plays were “The Tender Love of A Heroine”, “The Jade Beauty” and “The Grown-up Daughter”.
The names were strange.
Xie Qiao had heard a little bit about the bet out there.
However, when she saw the names of these three plays, she had goosebumps all over her body.
She did not know how Ms. Lu would feel if she saw “The Grown-up Daughter”.
However, it was no wonder. No matter her mother or Lin Erniang, they were very young and flirtatious when they married her father. When Ms. Lu got married, she was indeed much older.
“Why haven’t I heard of these plays before? Did they just rise up in the capital recently?” Xie Niushan was confused. He really did not understand, so he turned to ask the leader, “What are they about?”
The leader was quite brave.
He was actually not afraid of this Xie Niushan.
Of course, he was actually arranged by a few gambling dens. There were a few fighters in this troupe. If something really went wrong, Xie Niushan could not have killed them.
“”The Tender Love of A Heroine” tells the story of a very fierce woman who kidnapped a man and returned home to inherit the family business. Speaking of which, that woman’s body is big, and she has a fierce look. No one in this world knows how sincere this man is toward this woman… The second play also tells the story of this man. Later on, he married a farmer’s daughter from a small family. He doted on her very much. The last one… was still this man… After losing two wives, he married a merchant’s daughter, an old woman…”
The leader’s gaze was burning.
He was plucking the hair from a tiger’s head. How could he not be excited?
Xie Niushan heard the underlying meaning.
The man was him, right?! What “The Tender Love of A Heroine”, “The Jade Beauty” and “The Grown-up Daughter”? Were they not talking about Ms. Peng, Ms. Lin, and Ms. Lu, that spendthrift?!
