Before the Cannon Fodder Eloped Chapter 20

 Chapter 20: Home (2)




[Apologies. There was a mistake on her younger brother’s name 叶 桉. It will be changed from Ye Yu to Ye An]





"Eldest sister?" When Ye Lan saw Ye Ning, she was somewhat bewildered, and with a little disappointment in her eyes, she thought her father was back. It would be nice if her sister didn't come home. She'd be more of a hindrance than a help.





"Eldest sister, you are back." Ye An's eyes brightened slightly when he saw Ye Ning. Although he was sensible, he was still a child after all. He only remembered that his eldest sister would bring him candies every time she came back.





Ye Ning nodded at her siblings, glanced at her blood relatives in the courtyard, and asked faintly: "What's the matter? It's not yet time for lunch. Why are you all at my house?"





"Xiao Ning, it is just right for you to come back. You are the eldest daughter of this family. Ye An is still young, so you have to make the decisions when your father is not home." The Aunt was happy to see Ye Ning come back. She can't persuade Ye Lan but it's easy to coax the eldest. "As a matter of fact, it's soon time for spring plowing. Your parents are not at home. All three of you have to go to school. The fields will definitely not be taken care of. Your uncles and I are discussing whether we can help your family by planting it."





"That's good!" Ye Ning took a look at Ye Lan. The little girl was really worried. She glanced at her smiling aunt and said with a smile, "I was thinking about what to do with my family's fields. Father called and said that he would come back. Now that I have my uncles to help me with the planting, I don't need him to come back. You can rest assured that I am not a naive person. We will all eat in my house, and when it's your family's turn to plant, Ye Lan and I will also help."





When Ye Lan heard this, her face cleared instantly. "Thank you, Uncles and Auntie, and grandfather.  I am still thinking about what to do with the fields at home. It would be great to have your help."





"Wait, who said anything about helping you farm?" The youngest uncle was the first to react.





"Auntie said it herself. She wants to help us farm. What's wrong?" Ye Ning looks at them innocently.





"Don't talk nonsense. What I mean was that you give us your family's fields for us to plant. You said that you are a scholar, how can you not understand a word?" The Aunt was ready to scold her, but thinking it was not the right time, she put on a smiling face and said in a flattering tone: "Xiao Ning, you are a high school student, and you are going to college in the future. How can you work in the fields? It is not easy for your father to come back from working outside. Don't let him run back and forth. It is better for him to earn more money on the construction site. It is not easy for him to raise the three of you by himself. If we harvest the crops in autumn, we will share 20% of them with you, which will absolutely be enough for you and your siblings to eat for a whole year and still have plenty. Think about this, if you don’t plant it, it will be wasted. You don’t have to do any work, just wait at home to distribute the grains. For such a simple account, you will definitely be better at calculating it than me."






Ye Ning chuckled. The land had not been farmed for a few years, and it was still very valuable. If it was rented to others, the tenant rent would be forty percent. She was afraid that when the autumn harvest came, they might be sent away with tens of jin of coarse grains, let alone 20 percent. Then in a few years, all these fields would soon be assumed by her relatives, and Ye Ning's family would be left with nothing. This idea was very beautiful, Ye Ning had to agree.





"Oh! It turns out that it wasn't to help us plant for half a day. Forget it. Don't worry. My father will come back to plant it himself." Ye Ning glanced at her grandfather, who was smoking dry tobacco all the time. "If there's nothing else, you can go back and get busy."
