“Xia Qianqian, you b*tch, you beat someone up and still have the guts to badmouth him, you just watch if I don’t rip that filthy mouth apart!” After Mother Jiang scolded her, she rushed up raising her arm for a strike on Xia Qianqian.
Fan Ming pretended to cough and asked loudly. “What are you doing?!”
” Village chief….” Mother Jiang was slightly afraid of Fan Ming so she hesitated for a minute before retracting her hand back, grieving. “Village chief, you have to bring justice for my son, he is seriously injured and because of his injuries he can’t even move an inch!”
“Such a weakling.” Xia Qianqian sighed exaggeratedly. “I just punched him once, I’m honestly surprised that he was bedridden from such a small injury
Father Jiang glared at her. “Xia Qianqian, since you caused all of this, you must compensate us for his medical expenses! You should give us at least two silver taels!”
Xia Qianqian shrugged nonchalantly. “You should go back and ask the Xia family, when did they give me any money? You have also seen that I can’t even afford to pay a doctor for my crippled leg. How do you expect me to pay for your son?”
The whole village knew that she certainly did not have money on her there was no doubt about that. When Mother Jiang saw that she couldn’t extort Xia Qianqian’s money, she changed her tactics. “Alright then, this time I’ll accept a bit of loss but you have to pay for the seeds!”
“Impossible.” Xia Qianqian refuted. What a joke. In that era, seeds were as expensive as gold, Mother Jiang was such a cunning woman. She knew that seeds could earn her a good sum of taels.
“Xia Qianqian! Have you ever thought about the consequences while you beat my son? You have injured him and if you don’t want to pay with money or seeds, then let us hit you back!” Father Jiang waved his fist, if not for the fact that Xia Qianqian was hiding under the Village chief’s roof, he would have beaten her long ago.
As the couple was being aggressive, this was a bit frightening, the Village chief’s wife did not dare to say anything. But Xia Qianqian was not afraid of them, she waited for all the villagers to gather, before sneering. “Did you not ask your son why I beat him?”
“Are you saying that you can beat someone as long as you have a reason, how is this a law-abiding society?”
“I beat him because your son tried to taint me!”
“You’re spouting nonsense! Look at yourself, you are a girl with such a bad reputation, how can my son ever like you?”
Xia Qianqian thought for a moment, looking all serious. “Maybe because he’s blind.”
Hearing this, the villagers who came to watch the drama, started laughing. The Jiang family had been running amok in the village for a long time, many people were already sick of them. Someone from the sidelines said. “Now that this issue is brought up, I remember that Jiang Li went to the Xia family with a marriage proposal and was even chased out by First master Xia.”
“Yes, yes, yes, he also got scolded by First master Xia.”
“Doesn’t all this point towards the fact that he likes Xia Qianqian?”
The villagers were laughing and jeering, looking at the scene Mother Jiang was angered to the point of spitting blood: “Xia Qianqian, you vixen, this is all your fault!”
“I didn’t do anything. It’s you who have been slandering me, calling me a scoundrel and a damper. Even my uncle cleared my name in front of Housekeeper Gu, he said that I am not a jinx and my father was not killed by me. Now your husband is bringing it up again, tell me, whose face is he trying to slap?”
Xia Qianqian was very eloquent, choosing each word properly, which made Mother Jiang unable to breathe.
Taking advantage of the moment, Fan Ming also added. “All right, stop bantering like kids. Old Jiang, I’m not saying anything about your family’s Jiang Li or how you should teach him but don’t spend your time causing troubles in the village .”
“Village chief, you’re showing blatant favoritism! Why are you favoring Xia Qianqian, what did she give you?” With this single question, Father Jiang made it sound like there was some kind of improper dealing between Fan Ming and Xia Qianqian.
Seeing this, Fan Ming, who was almost hopping mad, yelled at the Jiang family’s couple, “What nonsense are you talking about? Isn’t it normal for villagers to go to the village chief’s residence to ask for advice or say some important things? The other day your daughter-in-law also came to my residence. Is it possible that your daughter-in-law and I also have an impure relationship?”
How dare Mother Jiang accept such a horrible sin?, she quickly explained. “Of course not. Don’t be angry, village chief. My old Jiang was only mad at Xia Qianqian and didn’t think anything before saying such a wrong thing.”
Liu shi decided to add onto the situation. “You can eat whatever you want, but you can’t say the same! Qianqian came here to talk about business with Lao Fan. I have been present the whole time. You should stop blackening the reputation of the young girl.”
Xia Qianqian’s eyes shone with brightness as a clever idea came to mind. She immediately sat down on the ground, covered her face and started crying her eyes out. “I am such an innocent little girl, having been talked like this in front of the whole village, how am I supposed to walk around here in the future! I don’t want to live anymore ….”
