    Ancient Rural Life: Farming and Raising Children

    by 随云溪

    Alternate Titles: “Traversing Through the Dynasty’s End”, “Struggles of a Commoner in Chaotic Times” – a tale grounded in reality, depicting a microcosm of life. Sang Luo finds herself transported to the past, beginning her journey in a dilapidated straw hut with two emaciated children. Poverty isn’t terrifying, and neither is being a widow. What’s more fortunate than having a second chance at life? Faced with a lack of food, Sang Luo refuses to succumb to despair. With able hands, feet, and vast mountains at her disposal, she’s determined not to starve. Rolling up her sleeves, she’s ready to tackle the challenges head-on. ~ Shen Lie, sent by his uncle to serve in the military, returns after more than two years to find the villagers reacting as if they’ve seen a ghost. He learns that not only is he “dead,” but he also has an unknown wife. His wife and siblings were driven out by his uncle and aunt, forced to live in a shaky straw hut built during the Shen family’s exile. That ramshackle hut, a risk to life and limb, especially in the snow? Ignoring the need to confront his family, he rushes to the mountains. Arriving at the hut, he barely recognizes it as his former home. The hut, clearly refurbished, no longer bears its former dilapidated look. Outside, a high mud wall encloses the courtyard, and a new kitchen annex has been added. At dinner time, a young woman steps out of the kitchen with a steaming bowl of food, followed by two children carrying rice and utensils. The children’s eyes widen at the sight of Shen Lie, then, with an excited shout, they run towards him. Sang Luo: “???” How does one deal with a husband who falls from the sky? Urgently awaiting advice online.
