Don’t Be a Kept Man
was no response at all, he subconsciously looked towards Chen Yi, and confusedly and hesitantly asked,
“……The chicken seems to be dead.
Does that count as your fault or does that count on me?”
Chen Yi borrowed the action of eating candy to hide the evil smirk on his face and took the advantage to say without any concern in his voice,
“It counts on whosever hands it died in.
Since it died in yours, it counts on you.”
Fu Xiu Nian whispered,
“But I just saw you use a rock to discreetly hit it.”
Chen Yi: “……”
They have the vegetables, but rice was still a problem not yet solved.
Ah Qi decided to bring the chicken back to the old man first and then head into the village center to exchange for some rice with their fish.
After the group of them asked where Old Man Li, Li De Sheng’s home was, they realized they had another problem on their hands when they arrived at the old man’s door.
And that was all due to the chicken in Fu Xiu Nian’s hands.
Because it had not woken up yet, there wasn’t much of a difference between it being dead and otherwise.
Fu Xiu Nian looked at Chen Yi earnestly and said,
“What should we do?”
Chen Yi contemplated deeply and just as everyone thought he would come up with a good plan, they heard him say,
“……Why don’t we go back and make it into stew?”
Zhao Ke Yi excitedly applauded and agreed,
“Yeah, yeah! Steam up chicken with mushrooms!!”
She went up and roughly took the chicken from Fu Xiu Nian’s hands, smiling as she passed it to Chen Yi,
“Farmers don’t have it easy when earning money.
A person should take responsibility for their actions.
You caused the problem, you solve it.
Don’t burden any of us with your mess.
We’ll wait out here for you as you go explain to the old man.”
Fu Xiu Nian furrowed his eyebrows slightly when he heard her,
“Chen Yi didn’t know that it was someone else’s homegrown chicken.
The chicken was still alive when it was in my hands, so I also have a responsibility.
If nothing can be solved, then when the filming is done, we will privately give back to the old man what is owed.”
And then he went to grab the chicken back, but Chen Yi was faster than him.
Looking as if he was going to confess to his crime, Fu Xiu Nian quickly pulled him back,
“What are you going to say when you go over there?”
The poisonous tongue of Chen Yi could too easily start a fight.
“Old man, I found the dead body of your chicken.
Do you want it back?”
“What if he doesn’t want it?”
“Well then, we go home and eat it.”
At the beginning, it was a very serious atmosphere, but in the end, it just made Zhao Ke Yi and Ah Qi start laughing on the spot.
Taking the chance when Fu Xiu Nian paused in shock, Chen Yi headed straight for the old man’s door and confidently knocked with the chicken in his hand.
Seeing this, Fu Xiu Nian and Ah Qi quickly followed behind.
The wooden door creaked open and out walked an old man with a slightly hunched back in a white tank top.
Seeing Chen Yi, the other man was a bit stunned, as he had never seen his face around here before,
“What? What do yer want from me?”
The chicken in Chen Yi’s hand for some weird reason started to struggle again right at this moment, flapping its wings furiously.
Chen Yi pointed towards the chicken coop in the courtyard and said,
“Old man, this is yours right? We found it when we were heading into the woods, and came to give this back to you.”
The old man took a long look at the chicken, checking this and that, before smiling with joy,
“Ah, this one’s really mine.
A few days ago, I let them roam free for a breather and that giant dog chased it into the woods.
Mer foot’s not been great and so I didn’t dare follow it.
Young man, thank you.
I have raised this chicken for several years now so I have quite the fond feelings for it.”
The old man put the chicken back into the fenced off coop and wanted to invite Chen Yi for some tea, but Chen Yi rejected the offer politely.
He leaned by the door and said,
“Grandpa, do you eat fish? My family’s out of rice so could we exchange some fish for some rice? Just enough for one meal would be good.”
Villagers here may not have a lot, but they would never lack in rice.
The old man’s home looked quite bountiful, and he patted Chen Yi on the arm, saying,
“Oh yer youngsters, how could yer not have any rice at all at home? Wait a bit.
I’ll pack yer some.”
And then went inside his house to grab a plastic bag to scoop some rice for him.
He kept asking if this was enough and Ah Qi quickly said,
“That’s definitely enough.
Thank you so much.
We will bring the fish over in a bit for you.”
The old man quickly waved his hands, very generously saying,
“Hey, no need for fish.
I’m old, so I’m afraid of the bones.
There’s not much rice I can give, so it’s not really worth any money.
It’s almost noon, don’t starve yerselves.”
Not only did Chen Yi successfully return the chicken back, he even successfully obtained a small bag of rice.
This was something the viewers did not expect at all.
Li Su Li glanced at the plastic bag and said in dissatisfaction,
“Why did he only give us so little rice? Is this even enough for us to eat?”
When Chen Yi asked for rice, he said only enough for one meal and took care to not mention that it was for a couple of people.
The old man only saw that there were the three of them there, and unconsciously thought that it was only for those three and hence, only gave enough for three.
[ Fuck this piece of shit.
Does this woman not know how hard it is to harvest each and every grain of rice? Go eat fucking shit! ]
[ The old grandpa doesn’t even owe her anything.
My grandma is a farmer and although it is better now, it does not mean that rice is not precious.
All day long she just pretends to be so high and mighty, so fucking shitty, I just want to THROW UP! ]
[ Chen Yi, go take her down! ]
[ Chen Yi, go slam her back! Fuck that made me so mad.
I just want to slap her in the face right now ]
[ I have a prediction.
Chen Yi will definitely roast her back ]
Chen Yi narrowed his eyes and smiled fakely before, as expected, taking her down a few notches,
“It should be enough for four people.
It might not be enough for five, so why don’t you save that portion for us.
Just take it as a part of your diet.”
Li Su Li had already expected this and lowered her eyes towards her hands, taking the time to inspect her nails,
“I expended too much energy today, and I can’t stand it anymore.
Chen Yi, you helped that old man out, so go ask him for a bit more.
He wouldn’t not give it to you.”
Chen Yi: “If you used up too much energy, I suggest you go back and sleep.”
Lu Si Li paused in shock,
Chen Yi: “If you sleep, then you won’t be hungry.”
