My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 246 Two Fools’ Wedding (1)
Tianye Mu directly interrupted him, “Please don’t forget, you’re not alone now. Think about your boy. Keep safe and no more troubles, OK?”
Kerry Ye’ s chaotic brain was hit by the word “boy”, reminding him of the cute face. John called this morning and told Kerry that the baby kept calling “Mom”.
When Tianye saw that he had calmed down a bit, he said to Henry, “Keep an eye on him and I’ll go down to see what’s going on.
“Mr. Mu, let me go with you,” said Henry.
“Don’t you understand what I’m saying?” He shouted, who was about to be pissed off by the two.
Henry lowered his head down, not daring to say anything more.
Kerry took a deep breath and said, “You and Henry go down together, so that you can take care of each other. I know what I should do.”
Tianye gave him a glance and nodded.
The two of them took off their shirts and shoes and jumped into the river without hesitation. It was already late autumn, so the water was cold and piercing. There were also waves, making Henry shiver as soon as he jumped in.
Due to the impact of the running water, a three-meter-deep pond was washed out below the waterfall. Tianye returned to the pond again and again against the pounding of the waves.
After dozens of times, which took them almost more than half an hour, Tianye and Henry had searched all over the bottom of the waterfall, but they got nothing.
Wait, what was that?
Henry saw a white canvas shoe wrapped in a vine near the shore, so he swam over and pulled it out.
The size of the shoe was thirty-seven. It was a simple style, not expensive and probably less than a hundred yuan.
“Is this the same one that Venus wore in the morning?” Kerry asked Mr. Cai.
He nodded after looking closer, “Yes, it is. That day after leaving the hotel, Alisa went to buy the clothes and shoes, but the size was too big, and I remember Alisa even went to change them once.”
This was the last thing that Kerry wanted to hear.
At this time, Tianye still remained calm. He put on his clothes and looked at the river flowing into the distance and said, “I didn’t find her under the waterfall, so she should have been washed away by water. Henry, tell all our men to come. Search along the river.”
“I see.” Henry put on his clothes and went to make a phone call.
Mr. Cai sat on the rock next to him and sighed inwardly. He didn’t expect Venus to take the leap, but he was sure that she wouldn’t end well, for he occasionally overheard the conversation between Gavin and Heng Zhang.
Gavin warned Heng Zhang not to touch Venus for the time being. After finding the treasure, he could do whatever he wanted.
Mr. Cai didn’t know the grudge between Heng Zhang and Venus, but judging from his attitude, he could tell that he really wanted to see Venus die. Perhaps Venus also knew this, and that’s why she resolutely jumped down.
“Do you guys still need me? Can I go now?” Mr. Cai asked with courage, “After tossing around for so long, they still got nothing. Maybe it’s time for him to go home.
Tianye shook his head, trying to shake off the water, asking, “Did Gavin tell you where he was going?”
“I don’t know that. How could he tell me?” Mr. Cai said innocently.
“Okay, you’re allowed to go now.” Tianye said irritably.
Mr. Cai was bout of joy, for he thought it could be so easy to leave. Fearing they changed their mind, he stood up and ran towards the valley.
In the opposite direction, Kerry was walking forward along the river. Gazing at his back, Tianye thought he must feel lonely. He really loved Venus, so that’s why he was so panicked and lost.
However, Tianye didn’t feel much better than him. he had been to the hell once, so it was easier to accept lost. If God wanted one to die, then he could never get away from it. But if he’s in a good mood, he wouldn’t allow you to die no matter what a desperate situation one’ s in.
He was exactly an example.
Now, he could only pray that God would let Venus go.
They searched along the river for nearly a week, doing everything they could, but nothing had been found.
Kerry and Tianye gradually lost their hope day by day, and Henry knew they were in a bad mood, so he didn’t dare to ask more questions. What he could do was to do his job.
One evening, when Kerry was searching in a village, a bunch of people in front of him caught their attention, “It seems to be a woman…”, “Poor girl…”.
Kerry got nervous and ran over in a panic.
A few villagers were gathering there, with several policemen and forensics in the middle.
Getting closer, he found a swollen corpse lying on the ground, covered with a white cloth. A stench of decay wafted in the air.
Kerry clenched his hands and this almost freaked him out. He had the urge to go up and uncover the white cloth to see the face, but he didn’t have any confidence to do so. He’s afraid it was Venus.
While he was struggling, he heard Tianye ask the villagers around him in an extremely low voice, “Excuse me, may I know who is that?”
The villagers looked at them, thinking they were from other places and whispered, “We don’t know either. She was floating down the river this afternoon and the body was soaked up, very scary. We can’t know her original face, but it was a woman.”
Tianye gasped, “How do you know it’s a woman?”
“The hair is long, so it’s a woman, I think.”
Tianye went blank and he turned around to look at Kerry, whose facial muscles were twitching as he tried to control his emotions.
“I’m going to ask the police.” Tianye actually was reluctant to do so, but he had to figure out it was his sister or not.
The police were taking evidence and when they saw him come, one of them stopped him, “Excuse me, sir, don’t get close to the body.”
“Hello, my sister accidentally fell into the river a few days ago, and we’ve been looking for her, so I wanted to take a look at…” Tianye didn’t finish his words, but the police already understood what he meant.
“Ah, well. We are also having the difficulty to find the family of the deceased. Come and see if she is your sister.” The policeman went forward to remove the white cloth, but Tianye take a step backward. They thought he was afraid, so he nicely reminded him, “I need to tell you that it may be a little scary. After all, the corpse has been soaking for a long time.”

“OK.” Tianye Mu nodded. He thought he’s a little stronger than Kerry in this way.
However, the moment the police uncovered the white cloth, Tianye felt that he had overestimated himself, who then ran to vomit with a sudden nausea.
He thought no matter how the face changed, at least the general outline would still be there, but what he had seen couldn’t just be called a face. The eyes bulged out, with one eyeball missing and the nose was terribly big. The face was like a fermented bread, the facial features squeezing all together.
Kerry Ye came over and patted him on the back, asking cautiously, “Is it she?”
Tianye shook his head, “I don’t know. I can’t tell.”
The policeman seemed to have expected this and said to Tianye, “Well, didn’t you just say that the deceased might be your sister? You come back with us for a DNA test. This will be faster.”
“Okay, I’ll go with you.” After receiving the water handed over by Henry, Tianye gargled, feeling much better.
The body was quickly carried by the coroner to the car, and Tianye was ready to leave with the police.
“I’ll let you know as soon as I have the news.” He said to Kerry. The two men rarely chatted during these days, for they needed to look for Venus during the day and have a rest after that, without a word of nonsense.
Kerry nodded, watching the police car leave.
“It can’t be Venus, it can’t…” Kerry prayed inside. If he had to choose the fact of her disappearing forever and death, he would prefer the former one, so that at least there would be some hope that she was living somewhere in the world.
Facing her death is too cruel to him, to the child, and even to Tianye.
“Boss, it’s getting dark. Let’s stay here today.” Henry asked for his advice. If they went any further, they would have to sleep in the open again. And they couldn’t continue once it got dark.
Kerry didn’t say anything, just nodding. Since a moment ago, he had been overwhelmed by the body carried away.
He should not be able to breathe normally until the result was known.
The villagers were still there and Henry walked up to an old man who looked quite modest and asked politely, “Hey, man. We are from out of town, wondering if we could spend one night in your village. Do you have any extra room?”
The old man heard the conversation between them and the police just now, so he was sure that they were not bad guys. He said with a smile, “If you don’t mind, you can stay with us. It’s just me and my wife at home, and the kids have all gone out to work, so there should be rooms for you.”
“Thank you very much.” Henry thanked him.
The old man laughed and said, “You’re welcome. Let’s go. How many of you?”
“Five or six.”
The old man’s smile fixed, “Huh? Really? I don’t have enough room for so many people.”
Henry squinted, “Sir, we all have our tents with us, as long as there is an empty house for us to set up our tents. It’s too cold at night.”
“Oh, well, let’s go. My house is just ahead.”
The old couple was so enthusiastic that they prepared a feast for their guests, but Kerry didn’t have any appetite. He didn’t want to eat, but he was too embarrassed to disappoint them, so he sat down at the table and just ate a few.
The old lady, perhaps because Kerry was too good-looking, kept offering him food.
“The family has not been this lively for a long time. The children are all grown up, and they only come back during the Spring Festival. Most of the days, there are just he and I. we’re glad that you can come.” The wrinkles were all over her face, but it wasn’t ugly at all, rather making her a lovely old lady.
Henry saw that Kerry was silent, he helped him to keep the conversation go, “Ma’am, then why don’t you go live in the city with the children?”
“We did, but we couldn’t get used to it. We just stay inside and we don’t know other neighbors, so we think it’s not as good as our village. We have acquaintances here and we can play cards, chest and chat. That’s the life I want.”
A few people were eating and talking when a voice suddenly came from the courtyard, “Mr. Zhong, Mr. Zhong.”
Mr. Zhong was the man of the house.
The old man put down his chopsticks and walked out of the living room, “What’s up?”
“Hey, there are so many people here. What a good time.”
“Oh, they are from outside the town and want to stay here for one night. What brings you here?”
The man smiled and said, “Well, Gawa, the next village is getting married after three days and we would like to ask you to be the cook.”
“Gawa? He gets married? Who would marry him?” Mr. Zhong asked in surprise.
“I heard that someone introduced a girl from another village to Gawa, who looks beautiful, but there was something with her brain. That’s why…”
Mr. Zhong got to know right away, “Oh, well, I see.”
“Mr. Zhong, give them your menu tomorrow. Gawa family has to buy the ingredients in advance.”
He waved his hand, “I see. You guys come to get it tomorrow.”
“Okay, then have a good night.”
When he was young, Mr. Zhong was a chef in the hotel, good at cooking. Therefore, whoever had a wedding would be willing to ask him to help.
The old lady was very confused, frowning and asking her old man, “Can Gawa get a wife in that situation? I’m afraid he’ll ruin the girl’s life.”
“Didn’t you just hear that? He said there was something wrong with that girl’s brain.”
The old lady shook her head and sighed.
Henry asked curiously, “Ma’am, isn’t marriage a good thing? Why don’t you look happy?”
The old lady sighed again and said, “He was born with dementia, and when he loses his temper, he would beat people randomly. After he grows up, his family wants to find him a wife, but who is willing to marry him? Now, he’ s already in his thirties. Two years ago, his family bought him a wife, but just after the marriage, the girl ran away. I heard that it was because his violence, so that the girl couldn’t take it anymore before running away. This time, I think, their life won’t be easy.”
After that, everyone was silent.
The night in the mountain was very quiet, and the noise of the cars couldn’t be heard. Kerry couldn’t fall asleep, so he kept smoking in the yard. The moonlight was soft, like a layer of veil covering the earth.
He didn’t know how long it would take to find Venus, but as long as he didn’t see her, he wouldn’t stop.
The results of the DNA test worried him a lot. Perhaps when he woke up, he would get the final answer. He didn’t dare to fall asleep.
If he really lost her, how would he continue his life? And what about the little guy?
In this world, no other woman could be his mother.
The sun was rising. After Mr. Zhong got dressed and walked out of the room, he was startled by a man sitting on the steps. Taking a close look, he found it was the boss.
There were countless cigarette butts on the ground. When Kerry heard the noise, he turned around, with his eyes all bloodshot.
“You haven’t slept all night, have you?” Mr. Zhong asked in surprise.

“You…” Mr. Zhong sighed, “Young man, that’s life. Even if you feel bad, you can’t toss your body like this. Your parents will be sad if they know so.”
Kerry Ye smiled and said in a hoarse voice, “They died long ago.”
Mr. Zhong was startled, and he didn’t know how to comfort him, so he went into the kitchen to cook.
At around eight o’clock, Tianye Mu finally called. Kerry gazed at the screen for a while, and took a deep breath before answering it.
Tianye hesitated for a few seconds, “Kerry?”
“Of course it’s me.”
“What happened to your throat? It doesn’t sound good.”
Kerry rubbed his brow, “I didn’t sleep last night. How’s the result?”
Tianye seemed to deliberately make him anxious, so he spoke after a while, “It’s not Venus Mu.”
Kerry instantly felt relived and spoke in a relaxed tone, “Okay, I see.”
They hung up the phone without saying too much.
Even though he hadn’t slept all night, Kerry was lit up by this result.
When he left Mr. Zhong’s house, Henry took out 2,000 yuan to pay for their lodging and food, which annoyed Mr. Zhong.
“Don’t. I won’t take it.” He said. “Sir, please.”
“I won’t. My wife and I don’t need the money.” Mr. Zhong said seriously.
Henry, at the moment, was not sure whether he should take the money back or not.
The old lady smiled kindly and said, “We are very happy that you have come to stay with us. We don’t need the money. If you insist, he will be pissed off.”
Kerry, standing beside Kerry, spoke, “Henry, go and help them pack up their things.”
When Henry heard this, he put the money in his pocket.
The old lady saw the haggard Kerry, comforting him, “Young man, do you ever hear this? If there’s no news, that’s good news. Take it easy, she will be blessed by God.”
“Thank you and thanks for the dinner last night. It’s delicious.” Kerry said. Although he ate little, it tasted great.
The old lady was happy to hear this, “You’re indeed a good boy. Thank you.”
The old man was speechless beside her. Old ladies still loved handsome young men.
In the morning, Kerry continued their way.
Five kilometers away, in a village, a good-looking girl was basking in the sun, whose movements were a little stagnant. Her beautiful eyes covered with a thin layer of mist, with strange expressions.
A fatty middle-aged woman came out of the house and put the food on the stone table in the courtyard, shouted at her, “Come here. It’s time to eat.”
When the girl heard the voice, she turned her head to look at her, dumbfounded.
The middle-aged woman went over to her and grabbed her arm, “When I say it’s time to eat, don’t you understand? Yes, you are a blind fool, so how can you understand me? Here, sit down.”
She sat her down on the stool, scooping up some porridge to feed her.
The girl instinctively opened her mouth.
“I’ve never served anyone like this before. If it weren’t for the fact that you can still be sold for a few bucks, I wouldn’t bother with you.” As she fed her, she complaining, “I’ll sell you to the Gawa of the next village, and I’ll go to the city and have a good time. Here, one more.”
It was almost finished and a small middle-aged man with a nasty look came, who couldn’t take his eyes from the girl. He grinned, “Is there any food left? Go and give me some.”
“It’s in the pot. Do it yourself.” The middle-aged woman said in a huff.
“Hey, she’s an idiot and you’re so goddamn good to her, but I’m your man.” The man was annoyed, but he still headed towards the kitchen.
The woman laughed, “This fool can be sold for 60,000 yuan. If you can earn this much, no, just 30, 000, I’ll treat you the same.”
The man took the food out, sitting across from them while staring at the girl, “The girl was fished out of the river by the two of us, and I have a part in it.”
“Well, fine. Today Gawa will bring the money to us and you’ll have 1,000. But remember, don’t say anything wrong.” The middle-aged woman warned him.
“Don’t worry, I won’t. No matter who asks, I’ll tell them she’s my distant cousin and the family doesn’t want to keep her, so they asked me to find her a husband. I know what I should say.”
This stupid and blind girl was Venus.
After jumping off that day, she was quickly swept up by the waves and drifted down the river. The couple was fishing by the river at the time, and was shocked to see a person floating in the distance, so they fished her over, finding she was still alive. In the end, they took her home.
Of course, saving Venus was for money, not for good kind.
Some people here believed in marriages to dead ones, so if Venus died that day, they would sell the corpse to earn 30,000 to 40,000 yuan. Since she was alive, they could make a lot of money by selling her to single old men here.
Venus slept all night, and opened her eyes slowly the next day.
“Hey, she’s alive.” The man cried in ecstasy.
The middle-aged woman patted Venus’s face and asked, “What is your name and where are you from?”
Venus turned blind and her head had hit many rocks in the river, so her reaction was very slow. She stared at the ceiling without saying anything.
The middle-aged woman had a look at her husband, “She’s a fool, is it?”
“It’s better to be a fool. She can’t run away.” The man said cheerfully.
The middle-aged woman suddenly realized something, “You’re right. Hey, doesn’t Gawa of the next village always want a wife? Isn’t just nice?”
“Yes, yes, yes, Gawa’ s family is also rich.”
So, the next day, the man called Gawa’ s parents over to take a look at Venus, and they were very satisfied with Venus’s look, white and clean, but they couldn’t accept her blindness.
The middle-aged woman said, “She can’t run away even if she wants to. And besides, don’t you always want to have a grandson? She can help you.”
The couple looked at each other and nodded, “Okay, but the price can’t be too high, and we want them to get married as soon as possible.”
“The betrothal gift is often worth 100,000 yuan, so how about 60,000? I have to give some to my cousin’s family, right?”
So, that’s the deal and they chose a good time to hold the wedding.
