Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 45
The next day, Song Qingshan had an ominous feeling.
The aunts he was working with looked at how little headway he had made and whispered among themselves, “Do you think he has a defect? He’s got such a large body, but can’t even work as much as that educated female youth!”
“He’s been spoiled rotten. We can’t treat the children in our households like this.” One of them shook her head in distaste.
When Mother Song heard their conversation, she snapped back, “What does it have to do with you? So what if my Qingshan isn’t feeling well? He isn’t getting free work points!”
“Whatever you say…” the aunts replied perfunctorily. They rolled their eyes behind Mother Song’s back.
Mother Song was infuriated even more.
At this time, the commander came over. They wouldn’t start an argument now even if they wanted to, and all of them shut their mouths. However, they still looked on curiously and said in a small voice, “Hey, the commander brought some people with him.”
A sharp-eyed person saw something and asked, “Why do they look like police officers (in earlier chapters, Public Security Bureau officers)? And why does the commander looks so displeased? Did something happen?”
Song Qingshan had become extra-sensitive to this word now. After hearing that, he froze and looked behind him in fear. Then, he saw the people who were steadily coming closer. Weren’t the people behind the commander police officers?
Song Qingshan’s heart chilled, and he felt like he had no future. His face turned white and his mind blank. Without thinking, he dropped the wheat in his hand and made a run for it.
I can’t get caught!
Wang Jianye took the police officers over with a stormy face. Who would’ve thought that the victees would include people from their village?
What was worse was that Song Qingshan made a run for it before they had even gotten close. He roared angrily, “THIS B!&@%#^ IS ESCAPING! EVERYONE, GO CATCH HIM!!”

The commander had much more prestige than a no-name police officer. All the women working at the fields had rushed to help catch Song Qingshan.
In no time at all, there was a mob chasing after Song Qingshan.
Song Qingshan was cowardly by nature. After being exposed by his good brother (no, not that one), he had been terrified of being thrown into jail. His mind blanked out, and his first reaction was to run. He had not anticipated that that many people would chase him.
He grew progressively more scared, and his running speed rose sharply.
Song Qingshan didn’t know where he was going and couldn’t afford to change course with a mob behind him. He just charged forward.
“Son, stop!’ Mother Song was also in the mob, but she was trying to protect Song Qingshan. But when she saw where he was heading, she was so terrified her eyes almost burst from the fear. She cried out in despair.
However, it was too late.
As Song Qingshan ran, he couldn’t stop himself in time to fall into a large pit. Flailing his arms, he fell into that pit with a ‘CRASH!’.
“ARGH!” a wretched cry could be heard from the bottom of the pit.
Mother Song was so heartbroken it was like she had fallen into the pit. Her knees felt weak, and she rushed forward crying, “My son…”
The surrounding people didn’t dare move. When Wang Jianye, who had been a step late, came to the scene, he felt a headache starting to form. “Why did you run, huh? You dare to do the deed but not admit to it, coward? Why didn’t you think of the consequences when you did this?”
These days, there were many delinquents, but only a few of them had been caught. That was because the majority of victims refused to report the delinquents. If they did, their reputation would be ruined. Back in the 70s, that meant you wouldn’t have any status in the village. The poor girls would only be able to marry widowers or unmarried older men.
But if the delinquents were reported…well, needless to say, they wouldn’t be let off easily.
When their crimes had been pinned, these delinquents often spent a good many years in jail. Some of the more severe cases had them executed.
The commander’s roar of frustration had made everyone know what happened, alleviating the people’s fears. They started insulting Song Qingshan with fervour.
This news spread among the village at an astounding rate. Everyone living there, and the surrounding villages, knew what Song Qingshan did. What Xi Yao was revealed as well.
