Matriarch: Heartbeat of the Pear Blossoms Falls Late - Chapter 4
“Foolish girl. Father… is very happy!” The man answered in a lively manner, the corners of his mouth lightly tugged up by a faint smile.
Because father has you and Wu’er, father’s entire lifetime is very happy. Very happy, even if……
“Happy? Even though mother left you to be alone all your life, also has other men and manservants, and even has people without status attending to her, you’re still happy?” Puzzled, the lady slightly knitted her brows.
She previously didn’t understand. Didn’t understand why, why her father was able to be indifferent towards these.
Now she understood. It was only because he was a man.
Men in this world, they have no right whatsoever to choose “no”. They could only be treated as passive commodities by their relatives and family, to be “sold”.
“Luo’er……” The man raised his hand and gently stroked her beautiful countenance, his vision at a loss, as if seeing the beloved of his life through her. He immediately forced a smile: “Women are the skies of men. Men are to obey the words of their mother before they are married off. Upon marriage, they are to obey the words of their wife. And when their wife passes away, they are to obey their daughter. This is exactly the fate of every man, and this is the unalterable norm of this world. Even if your mother doesn’t only have me all her life, she treats me with sincerity. I… am already very happy.”
Really…… Truly happy.
“Is that so? I swore to Liu Yunxi, swore to him, that he will be the only man in my entire life, to love only him in my entire life. But he didn’t believe me. He had never believed me. Now he abandoned me and left, forever no longer mine.”
Her words, caused the man to stiffen.
The lady continued to mock herself: “No, perhaps…… He was never mine to begin with.”
Her way of thinking in this matriarchal world was somewhat ridiculous. Sometimes, even she also felt herself being utterly ridiculous.
She couldn’t understand why women wanted three husbands and four attendants. Why couldn’t their hearts just follow one?
Now she understood. It wasn’t impossible.
Rather, it was because everybody’s hearts had their own reasons. Everybody’s hearts had their own way of thinking.
This entire phenomenon only resembled the natural law even more. Spring passes to summer, summer passes to autumn, autumn passes to winter, and winter passes to spring yet again. Just like the normal cycle of the law.
Even so, she didn’t, also unexpectedly, won’t experience it. She only wished to follow the notion of her own heart. With her heart only longing for one person, only wishing to completely and genuinely devote her love to the person she loves the most. Just like a wild goose, only having one mate its entire life, freely living in the world, free and at ease its entire life.
“Luo’er……” Feeling even sorrier, the man called her. “Father really doesn’t know what to say. Your mindset, it is something every woman would mock, but what every man would long for.”
The lady didn’t say a word. Yes, what would be longed for. However, her most desired person didn’t want it.
“Father’s happiness is mother. Elder brother’s happiness is Elder Sister Leng Yin. And, and Liu Yunxi’s happiness is second younger sister. Then, then what’s my happiness?” The lady lowered her head and mumbled.
“My daughter, this world has a lot of good men, not only that Liu Yunxi!” The man’s eyes teared up, consoling with a heartfelt tone.
“Yes, this world has a lot of good men. But who I long for, long for, there is only one!”
“Hahahaha……” The lady abruptly raised her head and laughed aloud, then said to him: “Father, it’s already quite late, you should rest a bit earlier!”
He only saw a candle flame suddenly put out. After a brief moment of darkness in the residence, they lit up once again. But beside the table was devoid of any figure.
The residence returned to its previous tranquil state, with only a barely audible soft sigh remaining.
“Master.” Lu Zhu, who had been standing quietly at the side all along, suddenly whispered: “The eldest young miss is extremely distressed. Will she be alright?”
“Sigh… That foolish child!” The man let out another sigh. He raised his head to look out the door, turned to look at the candle flame on the table, and reminded him: “Go say hi to An Xin. Tell her to have her notice things more when she’s around Luo’er, and don’t let her do anything foolish.”
“Yes, Master.” Lu Zhu faintly nodded.
