Even in ancient times people noticed that life is full of vicissitudes and every act can lead to the most unexpected consequences. So, a certain scientist who succeeded in the capital examinations, reporting this in a letter to his wife, rashly joked that they were bored in solitude and took a concubine. His wife joked in return: bored and married. Their letters fell into the wrong hands, everything was understood seriously, it reached the emperor – and the scientist lost his high post. Here’s a joke! But our story is about something else. Some Liu was not fated by fate. Every day his business went worse: he was completely impoverished. From his first wife, Mrs. Wang, he had no children. Even before he was completely ruined, he took a second wife into the house. All three lived in love and harmony and hoped for better times.

The father-in-law lent fifteen bundles of coins to his son-in-law, so that he opened the trade, and ordered his daughter to stay in the parental home, until her husband’s business is settled. He took Liu money and went to the second wife, who was guarding the house. On the way, he turned to a friend to consult how best to dispose of money, and drank too much. He came home under a bit of humbug, and on the question of his second wife, take it and bryakni: they say, he sold you to one person, so he received a deposit.

He said and fell asleep. And the second wife decided to go to her parents to wait for the buyer there. But at night it’s scary to go alone, so she spent the night with an old man, and in the morning she set off. In the meantime a certain player wandered into the house of a sleeping husband, lost in ashes. He dreamed of stealing something, and then there was such a heap of money. But the husband woke up, wanted to raise the cry, Only a thief grabbed an ax and decided the unfortunate man. The body was found.

On the way, she fell into the hands of robbers and, in order to avoid reprisals, agreed to become the wife of their leader. They lived happily, his wife persuaded her husband to quit the terrible trade and engage in trade. He agreed. And once he confessed to his wife in murder.
