Please take good care of your wife at home. It is jia’s son and nothing should happen to her.Yu shi pledges to say: “master, you rest assured, I must take good care of my sister and children!”Jia Quan again explained a few words with a servant to go out, he is two months away, deal with the business to go home.One enters the door to ask the servant girl small month at the door, “madam gave birth to?”Xiao Yue nodded, felt wrong, and quickly shook his head.Jia Quan looked at xiao Yue’s strange expression and said to himself, “This girl is usually very clever. What’s wrong with her today?”But he was not in the mood for a maid, and hurried to the lady’s room.Just walked to the door, Yu Shi stopped him, “master, you come back, first go to my room to sit down, I report to you about these two months happened.”Jia quan didn’t stop. He pushed Yang’s door open and said, “I’ll wait until I see my son.”Jia quan saw Yang sitting on the bed with glazed eyes and a white cat in her arms. Jia Quan came to her side and she did not respond.Jia quan looked around on the bed but could not find the child. So he took Yang shi’s arm and asked, “Where is the child?”Yang said, “My son, my son…”Jia Quan was a little puzzled. He had only been away for two months. How could Yang have become so?He inquired the vision to the side of yu Shi, hope she can explain clearly to himself.Yu pointed to the cat in Yang’s arms and said, “This is her baby.”Jia Quan stared with big eyes and said in surprise, “How can it be?How can a person give birth to a cat?”Yu shi began to tell Jia Quan, “One night half a month ago, my sister suddenly gave birth. My old mammy and I stayed by her side all the time. Mammy took the baby herself and gave birth to this cat.”Still unconvinced, Jia quan called Mammy and asked. Mammy answered in the same way.The servants, who had not seen the child, said that the lady carried the white cat the next day.Jia Quan’s heart begins to accept this reality, he feels certainly is Yang shi to have a problem just can give birth to a cat, to this half crazy half silly hair wife begins cold, and to very will come to matter more close to yu Shi.After yu shi succeeded, he began to talk to Jia Quan in the wrong way. “Yang Shi is an unlucky person, and now she is half crazy and half stupid. Let her take over the throne of his wife, who has lost jia’s family.Jia Quan felt that Yu shi was right, he was also a prominent figure in Yizhou, how could there be a silly wife at home, so he agreed to Yu shi’s request, Yang Shi kicked out of the house.When Jia Quan was not looking, Yu took a large bag of silver and gave it to mammy, saying, “The matter is done. You can go home and retire for old age, but you must keep this secret until you die.”Mammy took the money, nodded and said: “Don’t worry, ma ‘am. No one will know me when I leave this place. I won’t say a word.”That night, instead of a white cat, Yang shi had given birth to a white and fat boy, for it was night and Yu Shi had sent all the maids away to sleep, leaving only herself and old Mammy.And Yang shi finished giving birth to the child because of physical strength faint, at this moment let mammy pack this boy, put into the wooden basin to throw into the Minjiang River, and he put the white cat into Yang shi’s quilt.When Yang shi woke up, Yu Shi and Mammy both told her that she had given birth to a cat.

Can I feed the child some milk?”Liu Si heard that she had milk, just to save him from going everywhere, so he gave her the child.When the child reached Yang’s arms, she not only stopped crying, but also smiled at her, which made Her heart melt.Yang shi found a deserted corner to feed the baby, and reluctantly handed the baby to Liu Si.

I woke up when I heard the crying of my child, but I don’t remember the past, and I don’t know who I am, let alone where I live.”Liu Si, hearing that she was also a poor woman, said to her: “The child is in need of milk. You can stay here and be a wet nurse for the child. But I can’t afford to pay, so I can only take care of your food and shelter.Yang shi saw Liu Si can take her, quickly gift thanks.Sober, Yang worked hard, fed the children fat and kept Liu Si’s house clean and tidy.Liu Si no worries, every day to go fishing, life is not bad.Two years later, the baby could walk, but Yang still did not remember who she was, so she devoted herself to taking care of the baby.A warm-hearted neighbor advised Liu Si: “Since no one came to her for two years, it proves that she is also an orphan girl.
