- Chapter 7 - Dividing Family Property
Xia Dinghai’s face kept changing from green to blue and blue to green. However, he still bottled up his anger, considering that this matter was related to money. He said through gritted teeth: “Who said that the Xia family was brought up by your father alone? It’s a fruit of all three of us brother’s hard work and not only your father’s.”
“So be it, give me one third of the property.” Xia Qianqian didn’t want to continue arguing with him either.
As the saying goes, a wise man submits to circumstances. Some people love money as if their life depends on it. If Xia Qianqian insisted on taking all of the property, her second uncle would go to any level in order to make Xia Qianqian give up on this family property. They were only orphans and widows, they could only rely on themselves and can’t win against the Xia family for now.
“No!” Xia Dinghai flatly refused, “Your father’s property belongs to Xia Yu. Besides, your grandparents are still alive. They are the people who make decisions in the family, how can you even think about dividing family property!”
“Then a quarter will also do.” Xia Qianqian finally relented.
Housekeeper Gu took a deep look at her. This girl is really intelligent, she knows when to back off.
“Don’t even think about it!” Xia Dinghai still didn’t agree. Whenever he thought of someone taking money from his family property, he felt like cutting his own flesh. Because of this, now he wasn’t even afraid of housekeeper Gu.
At this moment, Grandma Xia, supported by the third branch family’s couple, came crying: “Who is trying to separate my family? I am going to fight to death with that person… “
Fan Ming frowned as soon as he heard the voice and crowd sighed one after another.: Grandma Xia was the most shrewd woman in their village.They were now afraid that Xia Qianqian wouldn’t be able to get a single penny.
“Mother.” Xia Dinghai instantly became happy and ran over to Grandma Xia, while winking at Xia Dingfeng and his wife Yang-shi.
As grandma Xia tried to stabilize her trembling body and said with a bit difficulty, “Qin-shi, do you want to end this old lady’s life? Did you forget what you said back then?”
Qin-shi’s face paled visibly after listening to Grandma Xia. Xia Qianqian lowered her voice and whispered, “Mother, what is grandma talking about? What did you say to her?”
“Qianqian, this family property, We don’t need it. Let it go.” Qin-shi said after thinking thoroughly, clutching the handlebars tightly with both hands.if one looked closely, they could see her body trembling in the scorching hot weather.
Xia Qianqian curled her lips: “Wouldn’t that be letting them off too easily?”
“Consider it as your father’s final filial piety to them!” Qin-shi’s voice became lower and lower, finally her voice was filled with desolation, “Your grandmother …… can use any means possible, can’t really force her to death.”
Xia Qianqian didn’t know what happened back then, but she had seen a lot of things, like how people rely on their seniority age to force others to listen to them. Just like a girl on a bus, even though she was suffering from stomach pain, would be scorned upon if she didn’t give up her seat to the elderly. They called it the ‘moral conduct’. Xia Qianqian was silent for a while and said, “Okay, I will listen to my mother.”
“Aunt Xia, Qianqian just wants to get what she deserves and doesn’t want to force anyone…”
“She is pushing me to the death end!”
Before Fan Ming could finish speaking, he was interrupted by Grandma Xia. She stood there, beating her chest and stomping her feet: “Whoever dares to divide my Xia family today, will have to kill me before doing so!”
Fan Ming was afraid that she would really die, so he looked at Xia Qianqian and Housekeeper Gu with a flushed face.
Xia Qianqian also hoped that this kind-hearted god would assist her again and help her speak, but Housekeeper Gu didn’t say anything. He looked like the whole situation had nothing to do with him.
Everything be came silent, as people stood there looking at one another. Only Grandma Xia’s wailing could be heard.
Xia Qianqian sighed helplessly and said in a clear voice: “Grandma, I know my father’s property belongs to Xia Yu. I don’t have any problems with that. Just give us a room to live, with 50 Jin white flour and 100 Jin rice. As for the clothes we left at Xia family home, just pack them up and throw them out. We’ll pick them.”
(TL: 1jin = 0.5kg)
What Xia Qianqian asked for was not very excessive actually. As it’s going to be winter soon. A total of 150 Jin of fine grain was only enough for three of them to spend the winter.
However, Grandma Xia’s heart still bled for that amount: “There is a cottage at the end of the village, you can live there, also I can only give you 100 Jin of rice and flour. Is this enough?”
“Yes, enough. Also, can you give me some seeds to sow in winter?” Xia Qianqian asked cautiously, keeping her excitement hidden.
