Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 31
Naturally, Su Jiaojiao had also heard the two’s voices. They were only a few meters ahead, after all. She glanced at them briefly and ignored them.
The things she was holding were already extremely weighty. She didn’t want to spend the effort to care about them.
However, Mother Song and Song Qingshan had to bug her even when she’s ignoring them. Mother Song didn’t wait until Su Jiaojiao had walked past her and directly barricaded Su Jiaojiao. She said self-righteously, “Daughter-in-law of my eldest son, what are you sending? Give me a taste of it.”
Su Jiaojiao creased her forehead. She took a step back and said directly, “This is mine. I won’t give you any of it.”
Mother Song’s face darkened as she roared, “I am you mother-in-law! SO what if I want you to give me some of the green bean soup you have?”
She always had a loud voice, and she was making a commotion intentionally, so she captured the surrounding passersby’s interest. If it was an ordinary person, she would probably be cowed by the people’s unsympathetic gazes.
“Mum-” Su Jiaojiao also raised her voice deliberately and called her mum.
Sun Fang had already been rushing towards Su Jiaojiao quickly. When she heard Su Jiaojiao’s voice, she went even faster, “You bastards are bullying my daughter again?! Roll farther away!”
Mother Song was also flustered, and went forward to rip what Su Jiaojiao was holding out of her hands at once. “Song Qingshan, come here to help me.”
Song Qingshan acted immediately, making Su Jiaojiao laugh coldly. As he was coming forward, she kicked him and sent him sprawling.
“Aiyo…” Song Qingshan cried in pain.
Mother Song stopped long enough for Su Jiaojiao to push her away and run towards her mother, “Mum..”
“Good girl, did she hit you? Come here and let me look!” Sun Fang was heartbroken and checked her for injuries thoroughly.
When the mother and son pair stood up again, they were too late to steal the things Su Jiaojiao was holding. Mother Song was so angry her eyes rolled up. She sat down on the floor and cried, “Why is my life so bitter…”
“Mum, I’m fine,” Su Jiaojiao shook her head and handed the glass bottle in her hand to Sun Fang, “You drink first. I’m going to send some to Dad and my big brothers.”
Sun Fang took the glass bottle. After seeing the mother and son couple, who were staring at them maliciously, she asked with a hint of suspicion, “Should we give them some of the green bean soup?”
If the only person being implicated was herself, she wouldn’t have feared the two, but this time Su Jiaojiao was the target. Mother Song ruined her daughter’s reputation, but that b**** was also her daughter’s mother-in-law. It’s such a frustrating situation.
Su Jiaojiao wasn’t subservient. She shook her head without a trace of doubt, “Heavens no! I would rather pour the green bean soup onto the ground than give any to them!”
After she finished speaking, she continued in fear Sun Fang would compromise with the two of them, “Mum, don’t worry. At worst, I’ll be jeered at. I won’t give it to them either way.”
“Would Song Qinghan mind?”
“He wouldn’t dare raise a complaint,” Su Jiaojiao patted her chest confidently and left quickly.
As Sun Fang looked at her daughter’s decisive (?) back view, she suddenly felt pity towards her son-in-law.
After crying for half the day, the main character of this whole fiasco had left. Mother Song immediately stopped crying and cursed bitterly, “Your older brother really is an ungrateful whelp!”
Song Qingshan nodded along with her and glared at the distant back view of Su Jiaojiao. He clenched his teeth, “Big brother is really useless. He can’t even take care of a single woman properly! Mum, don’t worry, I definitely won’t be like him when I grow up.”
Three hundred dollars had been taken from the house. If it wasn’t for that, he would’ve been married already!
A while ago, when discussing marriage, the fiance’s family said they wanted a bicycle for the dowry. However, the Song family only had two hundred dollars left. Not only did they have to buy a bicycle, they also had to pay for a bicycle voucher. As Mother Song was unwilling to spend that much, the marriage ultimately didn’t happen.
The other party was the person Song Qingshan liked the most after Xi Yao.
It’s all because of Su Jiaojiao!
The mother and son pair had great enmity towards Su Jiaojiao and Song Qinghan. However, they couldn’t find a way to get revenge on the couple. They didn’t even have their own plot of land, so they couldn’t even mess with their property a little.
Meanwhile, Su Jiaojiao had already said goodbye to her mother and was continuing to walk forward.
Next up was Zhao Sisi’s place. Green bean soup was five cents a cup, and she paid by the month. Su Jiaojiao didn’t want to get caught in other’s relationship problems, but she really liked money. Thus, she sent green bean soup there without a complaint.
Holding that refreshingly cool glass cup, Zhao Sisi felt very satisfied. She said in a chipper manner, “This is really too comfortable…I was almost going to die of heat!”
Su Jiaojiao chuckled, “I’ll go to my dad and elder brothers’ then.”
“Go, go,” Zhao Sisi waved at her, but she was focused on her green bean soup.
Su Jiaojiao picked up her basket and went on her way again. That was when a person shoulder tackled (used her shoulder to hit Su Jiaojiao’s body) her from behind. She didn’t anticipate the collision, so her body rocked slightly from the impact. When she came back to her senses, she was shocked: It was Xi Yao?
After that time when she accidentally came across Xi Yao, Su Jiaojiao hadn’t spent much time walking around in the village. So, she didn’t see her again. Her brow had just started to furrow when she saw Xi Yao’s beautiful face scrunch up. She said, “Sorry, I didn’t see you.”
Xi Yao’s voice was cold and calm, and obvious disdain could be seen in her eyes. She quickly brushed past Su Jiaojiao.
Su Jiaojiao could only look at her back view bemusedly.
