Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 108
Song Qinghan said softly, “It takes four hours to go the city each time, and each time Su Jiaojiao gets nauseated. Sometimes, she even vomits. The trip is already hard for her, so how would she have the energy to buy things for other people?”
Su Jiaojiao stared at him in disbelief. She only vomited once out of disgust because another person on the bus was nauseous and vomited.
“Oh, why didn’t you tell me earlier!” Sun Fang looked at her daughter distressedly: “Next time, Mom will make you some sweets. I think you should stay in the city and only come back during the new year; I don’t want you to constantly go to and fro and get nauseous…”
Su Jiaojiao accepted her mother’s care with a little guilt.
As she was speaking, Su Zhengyang came in with a dark face and sighed. He couldn’t even muster a smile when he saw her daughter.
Sun Fang changed the subject, “What’s wrong? Did you get in a fight with someone?”
She was joking, but Su Zhengyang nodded. “There was a fight, but I wasn’t in it.”
“What?” The people in the room who were all doing their own things were surprised, and they gathered around him curiously.
Li Xiu’s belly was very prominent now, and she had gained a lot of weight. You could easily tell she was treated well. She immediately came over, sat down and said, “Father-in-law, what happened?”
Su Zhengyang glanced at the her and said sadly: “The girl of the Zhang family was beaten by her man. She came back to her family home with a bruised nose and a swollen face, crying. Her father and the younger generation went over. I followed to have a look. He ended up kowtowing and promised to not hit her again, and asked to get her back.
Su Jiaojiao started out just listening to this as gossip, but became flustered after hearing this.
She remembered that Zhang Yu was married to a man that looked fierce, and she guessed he’d probably beaten her up. She felt a little unhappy after this.
Zhang Qian asked, “Was she really sent back?”
“They said they’d send her back when I came anyway. However, they were waiting until afternoon.”
Sun Fang was anxious, “How could they just send her back like this? You have to let him know fear! What use is kowtowing if he’s going to do it again later?”
“I think so too, but this is not our daughter.” Su Zhengyang’s dark face wrinkled.
Su Jiaojiao’s sisters-in-law and Sun Fang shook their heads, sighing.
“It is said that marrying is as important as having a good family, and girls must find a good man. Fortunately, my darling married well.” Sun Fang sighed sadly.
Su Jiaojiao twitched the corners of her lips, feeling down, “Mom, will you come to Zhang Yu’s house with me after dinner?”
Although it may be useless, she wouldn’t feel at ease if she didn’t say anything.
Sun Fang remembered that her daughter and Zhang Yu had a good relationship and immediately nodded, “Ok, take some of the candy you bought last time. I don’t think we’ll be going to their place often in the future.”
The injuries on Zhang Yu’s body were worse than Su Jiaojiao thought.
She really had a bruised nose and a swollen face. What her father said was not exaggerated!
She couldn’t see an inch of her face that was uninjured. The places she couldn’t see were even more terrifying.
At least when Su Jiaojiao came over, Zhang Yu was limping to open the door and letting her enter the house.
When Zhang Yu saw her, it was as if she had seen a savior. Her eyes were full of tears, and she cried, “Jiaojiao, I’m so miserable…”
Su Jiaojiao helped her sit down, shocked, and didn’t know what to say for a while.
She didn’t like to talk to people, was slightly afraid of society, and chose to be a freelancer in her previous life because she didn’t need to communicate face to face with people. She was always poor with words and didn’t know how to comfort her.
Fortunately, Zhang Yu just wanted to vent. “I really didn’t expect him to be so cruel. Since I got married, I have worked hard for their family, but he is still dissatisfied and sneaks out to gamble all day long. And he beats me up if he loses… Last night, I couldn’t recover in time to cook breakfast after he beat me up. Saying I was lazy, he hit me again…”
“What the hell did I do to deserve such a man as my husband!” Zhang Yu was aggrieved and sobbed so much. Then she glanced at Su Jiaojiao, and said with envy, “You married very well.”
Su Jiaojiao thought about it for a little bit before saying, “Actually, you could get a divorce.”
