Fate

Story brief
In a mountain village in the early nineties, the old people generally preferred boys over girls, and their lives were closed. There were dozens of people in the village. Ruan Yu was the village flower in the village. His mother died early, and his brother, Dajin, was disabled. Dajin didn't marry his daughter-in-law to carry on the family line. This made his father, Laozhu, very upset. It was a common phenomenon at that time. When Ruan Yu grew up, Laozhu was ready to change parents Ruan Yu didn't know anything about the implementation of this matter, and even liked the Haichuan where the sheep were kept in the village. Lao Zhu strongly opposed it. Lao Zhu seems to have long wanted to get married with the rich family, which coincides with the rich family. The rich son, Gouzi, looks like a wretched and lazy son. The rich daughter, Xiao Ping, looks poor and a bit sloppy. Old Zhu and the rich decided to change their parents, regardless of their children's feelings, just to carry on the family. This story is a real event, reflecting the darkest psychological shadow that the backward feudal tradition brought to people at that time, and it will not go away for a while.
