On the second day, Liu Ming suddenly disappeared from the village.
At first, this caused a commotion among the villagers, but after several months without any news of Liu Ming, very few people in the village brought up this matter. In the end, they gradually forgot about the appearance of this “youth with amnesia” in the village.
Even though Zhang Ya was concerned about the matter of Liu ming at the beginning, but after a while, the memories of him in her mind started to blur as well.
Half a year later, Zhang Xiong finally agreed to the marriage proposal of the large family in the county. At the end of the year he married his daughter to the family.
The bridegroom was a gentle, handsome young man. His family background and appearance were far from what Liu Ming could compare with. Moreover, after their marriage, he was extremely considerate and doted upon Zhang Ya, causing her to be completely immersed in the love life and felt that she would never have any regrets in her life.
As for Liu Ming, there was no longer a trace of it left in her heart.
At the beginning of the next year, Zhang Ya got pregnant, and the doctor said it would be a baby boy.
Her father-in-law’s family became extremely happy and doted on her. Her husband even accompanied her all the time and occasionally discussed their sweet life in the future.
Half a year later, she finally gave birth to a fat and fair boy.
On this day, Zhang Ya sat on a stone bench in the courtyard. She looked at her beloved son, who was one month old, and her husband, who was laughing beside her.
Suddenly, a miserable scream came from outside.
Following that, someone cried out, “There’s a bandit entering the city!”
Zhang Ya’s husband was surprised.
Just as he wanted to get up and take a look, a terrifying person ran into the courtyard.
Just as he was about to say something, a long black arrow suddenly shot out and nailed him to the ground.
Then, seven or eight burly men rushed in with fierce expressions and sharp blades in their hands. The one in the lead was a green-robed youth with an ugly face. His gaze swept past the young woman and a trace of a faint smile actually appeared on his face.
Zhang Ya’s husband was shocked and immediately stood in front of his wife. When he was about to say something, he was kicked to the ground by the burly man.
Zhang Ya let out a surprised cry and bent down to help her husband up. Suddenly, she felt a shadow beside her. The ugly youth in the lead had unexpectedly arrived in front of her and stomped on the man on the ground. He was unable to stand up in the slightest.
“What do you want?”
“If you need money, just take it.”
The man shouted without a trace of color on the ground.
"I don’t need money. I’m interested in your wife and son. Don’t say I didn’t give you a chance. Your wife and son, you keep one, and I’m going to take the other back to the village.” The ugly youth sneered.
With a flash of cold light, a sharp blade landed on the neck of the man on the ground.
“What? Why?” The man was startled and asked hoarsely.
“Hehe. I like to drink with human’s hearts, okay?” The ugly youth said coldly.
“I count to three, if you don’t answer, I’ll kill you first, and then take the other two with me. One, two …"
Zhang Ya and her husband on the floor were astonished.
“We can’t lose the child. Take my wife if you like.”
The man on the ground said with trembling lips. However, he didn’t dare to look at the woman beside him.
When Zhang Ya heard this, her face immediately lost all color. However, she did not say anything after looking at the baby in the basket beside her.
"Ha-ha-ha, very good. But I have changed my mind now. "
The ugly youth laughed wildly when he heard this. Suddenly, he knocked the man unconscious with the back of the knife. With a quick flash, he appeared behind the woman and carried the baby in his arms.
“What are you doing?”
Zhang Ya was extremely furious. Just as she was about to rush over and snatch her beloved son away, she felt a sharp pain at the back of her head. Her eyes went black and she fell to the ground.
Before she lost consciousness, she heard the ugly youth’s angry voice, “Idiot! Didn’t I say not to touch this woman?”
After that, Zhang Ya didn’t know anything else.
When she slowly woke up again from a table, She found herself in a lavishly decorated room. Moreover, she was wearing a bridal dress. Not far away from her, the ugly youth burped as he played with an abnormally familiar silver lock.
“Where is my son?” Zhang Ya asked with a trembling voice.
“Hehe, do you still need to ask? He is in my stomach. Now I’m full, Let’s start the wedding!” The ugly youth threw the silver lock on the table and stood up with a lewd smile.
Zhang Ya stared at the silver lock, not moving a single bit. Her eyes were faintly filled with a blood-red color.
“If you want a son so badly, you can have one with me.”
The ugly youth walked in front of Zhang Ya, supporting the woman’s chin as he casually said.
Suddenly, Zhang Ya opened her mouth and bit two of the ugly youth’s fingers. She tried hard and most bite the fingers into four pieces.
However, the two fingers were as hard as steel and were simply unable to be moved at all. Even so, the woman’s eyes were still spitting fire as she stared at him without the slightest bit of relaxation in her mouth.
“Haha, you want to injure me with just this bit of strength? You’d better obediently become my wife.” The ugly youth laughed crazily. With just a shake of his wrist, the woman’s teeth became numb and she loosened them.
“I will kill you, I will kill you …” Zhang Ya’s eyes were bloodshot.
She stared straight at him, her face full of anger and hatred, causing him to feel a chill in his heart.
“Hmph, you want to kill me? Don’t think about it for the rest of your life.”
The ugly youth’s expression darkened. Suddenly, he shook his sleeve and a gust of wind immediately swept out.
Zhang Ya only felt a slight pain on her face before she fainted.
This time, she had a long dream.
In the dream, she was able to fly and use some unfathomable spells as if she was a fairy.
She killed monsters with a snow-white flying sword.
But the strange thing was that during the entire dream, blurry figures would appear in front of his eyes from time to time and strange words like “Junior Zhang” and " Xiu Niang" would occasionally be heard.
Zhang Ya was shocked and immediately woke up again. However, she had forgotten most of what had happened in her dream.
Now she was still in her room, but the furniture around her had been completely destroyed. All the decorations were broken as if a tornado had passed through.
At this time, footsteps could be heard from outside. A tall youth in a leather robe walked in with a bloodstained sword in his hand.
After she clearly saw the young man’s appearance, she immediately cried out with a quiver: “Big Brother Liu, it’s you!”
“Sister Zhang, Sorry I’m late.”
The young man in leather robe put the long sword in his hand back into the sheath on his back and said apologetically.
“What is going on? Why are you here? Where’s that thief?!”
“He was hit by my sword and escaped. The rest of his subordinates have all been slaughtered by me. I heard that there was a group of criminals who committed all sorts of evil acts, so I came to eradicate them. I didn’t think I’d run into those gangsters trying to hurt you.” Liu Ming slowly replied.
“Thank you, Brother Liu, for saving my life. It seemed like you had recovered your memories.” Zhang Ya thanked him and then said anxiously. “Have you seen a baby here?"
She still hoped that the thief didn’t actually kill her son.
“No, but I saw some baby clothes in the kitchen.” Liu Ming replied.
Zhang Ya felt her head buzz and the last bit of energy in her body completely disappeared.
“I have to see!”
Liu Ming immediately agreed and did not ask any questions.
Two hours later, Zhang Ya had already dug out a small hole in the ground with her hands. After that, she threw the baby clothes into the hole and buried them one by one.
Then she stood motionless in front of the mound with a blank expression.
Liu Ming stood behind her without saying a word.
After an unknown period of time, she turned around and coldly said to him, “Big Brother Liu, I must kill that thief. Can you teach me everything you’ve learned? Since you can hurt him, I will naturally be able to kill him.”
“You want to learn from me? You are a weak girl, and you will suffer a lot.”
Liu Ming looked at the girl in front of him and slowly spoke.
“I want avenge my son! I am willing to suffer.” She replied without any hesitation. Her expression was abnormally resolute, without the slightest hint of weakness from before.
Liu Ming felt that the girl in front of him seemed to be the true Zhang Xiuniang.
“You can learn from me, but what about your husband? You’re not going back?” Liu Ming asked calmly.
