C13 Sudden transformation of the mourning hall
Yi Yun followed the man into the mourning hall. The man stared at the two images in the center of the hall. He didn't have much expression on his face, but I could tell that there was something else in his eyes. Hatred?
I really don't understand how this brother-in-law of mine could have such feelings for his dead brother-in-law.
Maybe it was just my imagination.
"My name is Da Niu and I live by the mountain." The man lowered his head and sat down. He glanced at the woman and said, "She's not my little sister."
When Da Niu looked at this woman, his eyes were filled with warmth. It didn't seem like the kind of gaze a brother would use on a sister. It was more like the gaze of a lover.
When I heard this, I came to a realization. If what I said was true, then what I said made sense. I could not help but nod my head.
However, when I understood this, I was shocked. Looking at the portrait in the hall, I thought to myself, could this woman's husband have been killed by two people?
Yi Yun's expression remained calm without any anger or joy, as if he was the best listener.
"I grew up together, and we had a good relationship, but because my family was too poor, the marriage between us was never settled, so I went out to work together with her." At this point, Da Niu's eyes turned red, he looked at the woman and smiled, and then his face suddenly became cold and stern, "But, I didn't expect that by the time I earned enough money to come back, Lan Xiang would already be married."
After saying all of this, Da Niu's expression became bleak and he looked very depressed. When I heard this, I couldn't help but feel sad. I thought to myself that maybe this farmer's luck wasn't good enough and ended up having a lover as a family!
Da Niu clenched his fists and clenched his teeth. His knuckles were slightly white as he rubbed his knees. The woman called Lanxiang gently grabbed his hand and gave her a peaceful smile.
Actually, I know Lan Xiang didn't want to marry him. At first, I thought she was forced to marry him because of her father's reasons. "Da Niu burst into tears and said in a cold voice," But, I didn't know that Zhang Yuquan was actually forcing Lan Xiang because of his family's wealth and influence. He also said that if Lan Xiang didn't marry him, he would kill Lan Xiang's whole family. "
Hearing this, my heart turned cold. In the countryside, forcing a marriage wasn't rare, but if they forced one another to do so, it would be really hard to accept.
"I can't win against the Zhang Family, so I made an appointment with Lan Xiang. As long as Zhang Yu is dead, I will go with her." Da Niu stretched out his hand and grabbed Lan Xiang, revealing a gentle smile.
"How do you know that Zhang Yuquan will definitely die?" Listening to Da Niu's words, I realized that the health of the peasants should be pretty good. It shouldn't be a problem for them to live for 70 or 80 years, but why does Da Niu seem like he predicted that Zhang Yuquan would definitely die?
"Hehe." Hearing my question, Zhang Yu Quan revealed a cold smile, and turned back to look at the portrait of Zhang Yu Quan, "This is retribution, his Zhang Family has a genetic disease, and nine out of ten men are like this. It's not strange for them to die early."
When I heard this, I turned my head to look at my silly son who was drooling loudly outside. At that moment, my heart was filled with emotion.
In this situation, even if Zhang Yu were to be resurrected from the dead, the Zhang Clan would probably be finished.
"The father and son duo's remains are not yet cold, what are you doing here?" Yi Yun's expression was calm as he asked.
"I'm not here to send them off, I'm here to help Lan Xiang. He's a woman, I'm afraid I'm tired of him."
For a moment, I was speechless. From Da Niu's words, I felt that Zhang Yu Quan was going to be punished, but if he saw the two of them in this state, he would probably be angered to death.
"What about their bodies?" Yi Yun pointed to the empty Spirit Collapse at the side.
At this point, both Da Niu and Lan Xiang's expression changed drastically. With lingering fear in their hearts, they said, "What a fake corpse!"
According to Da Niu, just as the mourning hall was about to be filled, the black cat outside suddenly cried out. The two people lying down suddenly stood up as if they were shocked by electricity and disappeared into the forest.
"You guys aren't going to look for him?" Yi Yun gave a faint smile.
"It's good that they disappeared. What does it have to do with me?" Da Niu's expression turned cold.
We were silent for a while, and the mourning hall fell into a deathly silence.
There was a loud boom, as if thunder had struck the courtyard.
As soon as I raised my head, I saw that Da Niu's face was pale and his eyes were wide open as if he had seen a ghost.
When I looked in his direction, I was shocked as well. I saw a man wearing a birthday suit standing outside. His entire body was wet and his face was purple. He had a hunched back and was staring at the portrait of himself in the mourning hall.
It was Zhang Yuquan!
I felt a chill in my heart, and I thought, I must have seen a ghost this time.
As for Lan Xiang, she screamed and threw herself into Da Niu's arms.
"Ao!" A weird cry rang out. Zhang Yu's whole body jumped as he stood stiffly in the mourning hall. There was a muffled bang as if a heavy hammer had struck my heart.
I couldn't help but shiver when I saw Zhang Yuquan jumping towards us like a zombie on TV. I was about to dodge when a strong hand grabbed me. I turned my head to see that it was Yi Yun.
His face was calm, without any signs of panic.
"Don't worry, he's not here to look for us," Yi Yun said softly, not moving at all.
Sure enough, the moment Zhang Yuquan stepped into the mourning hall, he shot toward Da Niu and Lan Xiang like an arrow leaving the bowstring. His eyes turned bloodshot as if he had come alive.
The sight sent chills down my spine. If not for Yi Yun's presence, I would have escaped long ago.
Although Zhang Yuquan's movements were stiff, his speed was very fast. He opened his arms and grabbed the neck of the ox. The bull's eyes turned white and its neck began to crack. It even spat out its tongue.
Although Da Niu was panicking, he wasn't a fish to be cut. He picked up a bench and shamelessly threw it at Zhang Yu Quan. After a few bangs, the wooden bench actually broke into pieces.
When Lan Xiang saw that Da Niu had been restrained, she picked up the bolt and swung it towards his arms. Although the woman's strength was slightly lower, she was still stronger than the bolt. After a few moments, Zhang Yuquan's arms went limp and fell on Da Niu's shoulders.
Da Niu took a few deep breaths and then opened his hands. He then kicked Zhang Yuquan's chest, causing him to jump back a few steps and fall to the ground like a log.
I turned back to look at Yi Yun, only to see that he had turned a blind eye to this. He was holding his cell phone, not knowing what to do.
A "ding" sound rang out. I took out my phone and checked it. It was a message from an unfamiliar number. The message was: 12 PM. There's something to see!
I raised my head and saw that Yi Yun had already put away his phone and was looking at me mysteriously.
I then understood that he was the one who sent the message. I looked at the time and saw that it was 11: 56 PM. I couldn't help but be curious. What did he mean by that?
On the other side, Zhang Yu was lying on the ground, struggling with both of his arms crippled. His face was blank, even though his head had been caved in, there was no trace of pain on his face. He was definitely dead.
Da Niu and Lan Xiang straightforwardly grabbed a thick hemp rope and tied Zhang Yu up tightly like a dumpling.
Looking at the two's skilled movements, I couldn't help but suspect that the two of them had really good teamwork. No matter how I looked at it, it didn't seem like it was the first time they had done such a thing.
"Oh, Mom is playing games with Dad again." Clapping sounds came from outside the door. I turned around to see that it was Zhang Yuquan's foolish son. He had an excited expression on his face as he sized everything up.
After hearing those words, my heart immediately thumped. The word 'again' in the words of this foolish son attracted my attention.
"Ding!" I lowered my head and saw that it was already 12 o'clock!
