Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 52
After Song Qinghan and the passerby left, Su Jiaojiao and Sun Fang went back to Su Jiaojiao’s home. Sun Fang closed the door, afraid that someone would overhear their conversation, and asked her seriously, “Wouldn’t Song Qinghan’s heart hurt if you say such words?”
She didn’t know Su Jiaojiao could be so mean, and her words could be so vicious up until now.
It wasn’t as if Song Qinghan was especially sensitive, but anyone would feel hurt if something like that was said to them. Although he didn’t have any feelings towards the Song family, as his wife, it was still too much to speak to him like this in front of them.
If she spoke like that to Su Zhengyang in front of his parents, he might’ve divorced her right there and then.
(Armos D. Platypus: Could you not write four paragraphs about speech?!)
Even if he didn’t divorce her, he would still feel rage in his heart.
After Su Jiaojiao heard that, she felt a bit scared as well. She said weakly, “That…I’ve already said…”
What could she do?
She had said inappropriate words to Song Qinghan because she was willful. All she could do is admit she was wrong.
If this hurt song Qinghan, then let him be hurt. If he felt uncomfortable due to this, then…at most, she’d apologize to him. That’s all she was willing to do.
Su Jiaojiao was standing in the shoes of an onlooker, or she might be unable to comprehend these feelings after the events in her past life.
(Armos D. Platypus: Am I too young, but I genuinely don’t understand what the events of her past life have to do with this.)
She wouldn’t feel anything to anyone who didn’t care about her, even if they had a close familial relationship with her.
If the other person was polite, she would still give them some respect externally.
But when it came to the members of the Song family, she could only treat them like strangers at best. Especially that scumbag Song Qingshan who had planned to rape her. Although he hadn’t succeeded, she still mentally assigned him to the ‘enemy’ category.
(Armos D. Platypus: You know, all of this could be averted if she had told the public she would’ve been assaulted if Song Qinghan wouldn’t be there.)
But if she’d have to be connected to the Song family members to live with Song Qinghan in the future, she would rather divorce.
Although she had feelings for Song Qinghan, he wasn’t an inseparable part of her life just yet. She was never the kind of woman who couldn’t live without a man.
She hadn’t spent twenty-odd years as a single dog for nothing.
She wouldn’t bow and scrape to the members of the Song family to appease Song Qinghan, and especially not Song Qingshan.
She didn’t like the Song family and didn’t want to have any relation with them. She’d treat them how they treated Song Qinghan and not an iota better. She was wealthy, but she would rather gift it to random passerby than people she loathed!
It was like the green bean soup incident from before. It wasn’t anything precious, but she would never give any of it to them.
But Sun Fang didn’t know any of what she was thinking and felt dizzy when she heard Su Jiaojiao’s guilty tone. “You can’t be this willful next time. When Song Qinghan returns, look at his facial expression. If he’s furious, apologize to him. Speak to him more politely from now on.”
She added an extra sentence after that, “Jiaojiao, you shouldn’t speak this viciously. How will the villagers look at you after this?”
Her daughter had sparked an incident in the village once before. After that, her reputation in the village had plummeted. Sun Fang had had to quarrel with the villagers many times over this. When she finally got a respite, this happened.
(Armos D. Platypus: Su Jiaojiao, I know the readers are loving the verbal action, but please, do that in moderation. You’re tiring your mum out.)
Su Jiaojiao nodded obediently and replied, “Mum, don’t worry. I won’t be staying in the village my entire life. Let them say what they want. It’s not like they’re carving a chunk of meat out of me.”
Sun Fang laughed and said, “If you aren’t staying in the village, where else will you be in the future?”
“Mum, do you think the ‘talents’ the government selects are actual talents?” Su Jiaojiao asked seriously.
As the gaokao was cancelled, all university students were recommended into them. Some of them were competent, but their skill was insufficient due to the lack of systematic education.
When the war was over, China’s economy started to recover. Therefore, the gaokao was reinstated and people entered universities based on their actual talent and competence.
Armos D. Platypus: I’m both the translator and the critic. I don’t know why, but that’s what it seems like to me.
