Chapter 11

Why, Brother?

It was the same as usual. After the meal, the children would clean up the bowls and chopsticks.

At the moment, Gu Qingxue naturally would not let a four or five-year-old child do these things. So when she saw Gu Lin start to make a move, she quickly stood up and s.n.a.t.c.hed the bowls and chopsticks from Gu Lin’s hands.

Gu Lin raised his ink-like black eyes and looked at Gu Qingxue in confusion.

“Leave it to me to clean it up. “Gu Qingxue tried her best to make her smile look gentler.

She had never thought that she would have to curry favor with a little child one day.

Gu Qingxue felt that Dumby and Lingbao were easier to deal with, while Lil’ Lin was clearly more mature than Dumby and Lingbao. Moreover, he seemed to have noticed something.

Actually, it was not just Gu Lin. Dumby and Lingbao also felt that their mother was different from before. It was just that the two of them liked the current Gu Qingxue, so they did not think about why Gu Qingxue had become like this.

Seeing that Gu Lin did not move, Gu Qingxue only stared at her with an ambiguous gaze. The smile on the corner of her lips did not change. “The exam is in two days. Don’t you want to study? Go and study well.”

In this dynasty, literature was valued more than martial arts. The status of scholars was relatively high. Generally speaking, boys above the age of four could go to school, but they had to pa.s.s the school test.

Lil’ Lin was a genius when it came to studying. On one hand, it was because he was smart enough. On the other hand, it was because he had a photographic memory.

There were less than ten days left before the exam.

“I’m not going to take the exam,” Gu Lin said in a m.u.f.fled voice.

The smile on Gu Qingxue’s lips froze for a moment. She looked at Gu Lin in puzzlement, “Why?”

In her memory, Lil’ Lin had started early.

For the past half a year, he had been preparing for the exam. He had spared no time to go to the village’s school every day to do some hard work for free, just so that he could eavesdrop on the cla.s.s for an hour every day.

How could he give up just like that?

Dumby and Lingbao were also shocked by Gu Lin’s words.

“Why, brother?” Lingbao and Dumby asked in unison.

“No reason, I don’t want to study anymore.” Gu Lin said firmly, but his small hands hidden in his sleeves had already clenched into fists. “I’ll go and tidy up the firewood.”

After saying that, Gu Lin turned around and walked out.

“Big brother, I’ll help you!” Dumby said hurriedly, quickly following Gu Lin’s footsteps.

Lingbao glanced at Gu Lin and Dumby, then at Gu Qingxue.

It seemed that she was conflicted about whether to help her mother or to help her brothers.

Gu Qingxue raised her hand toward Lingbao.

Seeing her action, Lingbao was so scared that she shrank her neck, and her eyes could not help but close.

The palm that she had imagined did not land on her body.

A warm hand gently landed on the top of her head and caressed it gently.

This wonderful feeling made Lingbao open her eyes quickly and look at Gu Qingxue.

“Lingbao, mother will go out later. Persuade your big brother to study and tell him that mother will solve the problem that he is worried about. Tell him to study hard and don’t think about anything else, okay?” Gu Qingxue said with a smile.

Lingbao only felt that Gu Qingxue’s hand above her head was warm and soft.

It turned out that mother was so beautiful when she was gentle.

At this moment, Lingbao’s fear of Gu Qingxue disappeared. She grinned at Gu Qingxue, revealing her neat white teeth, and nodded her head forcefully.
