MSRV Ch 22 Part 2 – Time Passed By (II)

The village children originally liked to watch cartoons, but Wenwen liked TV dramas that adults usually watched, so they were also influenced by Wenwen and ditched the cartoons to watch TV dramas. A few days ago, they watched a palace drama with emperor, ministers, and concubines, so they also wanted to play impressive roles.

“I am the prime minister!”

“I am a master!”

“Master is not an official!”

“Then I am a traitorous minister!”


Seeing that his friends had chosen the roles they wanted to play, little Shitou said: “Then, then I will be the favored concubine!”

Yiyi refused, “You are a boy and can’t be a concubine!”

Little Shitou was sad: “Why not?”

Yiyi tilted her head. She also didn’t know why. However, the concubines on the TV were all girls, so she said, “Anyway, you cannot.”

Little Shitou instantly burst into tears. Choked with sobs, he looked at Wenwen pleadingly: “I want to be Wenwen’s closest person…”

However, the girls refused to let him join their rank of concubines, and little Shitou bawled even louder. Seeing this, Wenwen said solemnly: “Then I will make you my general manager of palace affairs. He is the person closest to and most trusted by the emperor.”

When little Shitou heard it, he burst into a wide grin: “Okay. I am going to be the general manager of palace affairs!”

Having chosen their roles, the children happily left Wenwen’s house. After arriving in their usual playing ground, Wenwen assigned other children lines according to their roles. Regardless of age, all children seriously tried to remember their lines and order of appearance.

Not long after, under Wenwen’s guidance, a stormy court drama began to ensue. However, with the children’s enthusiastic interpretation, none of the tension of political intrigue or harem battle could be felt.

Adults who passed by saw the children playing and walked away in a laugh. It was really amusing to see a group of small children reciting the lines from serious court drama with their tender voices.

But the children thought that they were super great. Not only could they memorized lines, but they could also act together! Well, although everyone only had one or two short lines.

And they also added more scenes on their own! For example, the empress dowager was currently fighting for the emperor’s favor with the general manager of palace affairs.

For example, in order to win the emperor’s favor, all the loyal ministers had infighting that almost ended in a fist brawl.

Wenwen, who was sitting in a majestic th-……sitting on a small plastic bench that served as his dragon chair, sighed in melancholy as he watched the children’s chaotic performance.

He really didn’t have it easy, ah.

In the end, Wenwen had to seriously re-teach his little friends about how to acting, again and again.

The children played happily until noon, when they had to go home to eat lunch. One of the boys, a skinny monkey-like child named Zhuangzhuang, pulled Wenwen to the side and said: “Wenwen, let’s go to my house. My family slaughtered a chicken this morning. I will give you a big chicken leg to eat!”

Zhuangzhuang’s family didn’t mistreat the boy. There was always enough food and care for him. However, Zhuangzhuang was a premature baby. When Zhuangzhuang was born, he was very thin and small. His family carefully raised him and even named him Zhuangzhuang, hoping that he would grow up strong and healthy. However, no matter how much nutrition was given, Zhuangzhuang was still thin and small, like a malnourished child.

Little Shitou also wanted to take Wenwen home, but his family didn’t slaughter any chicken today. Unwilling to lose, he yelled: “Wenwen, go to my house. I will ask my grandma to kill a big rooster for you to eat!”

At this moment, a female’s gentle voice intervened: “Thank you for the invitation, but Wenwen is going home to eat with me!”

The children looked up and saw a slender figure approached. Her black and silky long hair was tied into a simple braid that hung on her left shoulder, making her looked young and fresh.

“Big sister Ruoruo!” The children shouted joyfully.

Fu Yunruo smiled gently: “I cooked delicious food at home. Do you want to come and eat with us?”

The children looked back at Fu Yunruo before running away gleefully like a swarm of bees: “No need, big sister Ruoruo!”

After the children were gone, Fu Yunruo looked at Wenwen, who had played hard until his face flushed red. She probed his chubby cheek. Although the child wasn’t sweating, his skin temperature was high.

“Did Wenwen have fun playing?” Fu Yunruo asked softly. She then took the child’s hand and walked home.

Wenwen grasped Fu Yunruo’s hand and began to hop around. But soon, he realized that his behavior was too childish, so he stopped hopping and walked like a little adult. Hearing his mother’s question, he curled his lips and said disdainfully: “Just so-so!”

Children nowadays were hard to teach. Although they listened to him most of the time, they would occasionally be disobedient and gave him a headache. As the king of the children who ruled over the whole village’s younger population ranging from one-year-old little toddler to thirteen-year-old big child, Fu Wen really didn’t have it easy.

“Those children are really difficult to look after!”

Hearing a little dumpling who was less than four years old said such an adult-like sentence, Fu Yunruo almost burst in laugh. Today was the weekend, and there was no school. Children who already attended kindergartens and elementary schools also came to play together. Although Wenwen complained grumpily, he was obviously happy to play with more friends.
