Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 10
The remittance slip did not come with a message. Hence, it was natural to have no explanation as to why there was an increase in money. Things like this could only be understood through a family letter.
Lin Lan pressed her handprint onto the documents before dividing the portion of the money into two. Then, she proceeded to put the two parts into her pockets and thanked the staff members.
“Hurry, go to the hospital and get your child cured early.”
After Lin Lan left, several female staff members gathered together to gossip, “It’s 260 Yuan! What does her husband do? Why is there so much money?”
“The remittance address belongs to the army.”
“He’s an officer. It’s truly amazing how the countryside managed to conscript an army officer.”
“How did she get such a great marriage partner?!”
Lin Lan, who was envied to have a successful marriage, was currently very tired as she journeyed with the child. Although the body belonged to the original owner, the pain, fatigue and the sense of accomplishment seemed to have stemmed from her soul.
So the fact that she couldn’t endure hardships, couldn’t deal with troubles, and couldn’t cope with exhaustion was entirely because of her.
(T/N: The author was very ambiguous about this but it means that everything she feels now is from her emotions alone. Only the outer shell, that is the body, belongs to someone else but everything she is experiencing is because of her emotions alone)
She must have a bicycle, she must be able to eat white noodles and meat!
Leaving the post office, she wondered if she should go to the school to find Dawang and Maisui first. However,upon looking at the weather, she thought it would be best to go to the hospital first.
It was not the first time for the siblings to go into the county town to deliver items to her brother-in-law and sister-in-law— they would be able to go home by themselves without a problem.
So, she brought Xiaowang along and sat on a stone in front of the hospital to rest as she truly couldn’t walk any further.
Before this, her energy and will to continue came from her determination to withdraw money. Now, she wanted nothing more than to find a restaurant and have a good meal before having a good rest in a guest house.
It’s a pity that she didn’t have any food stamps with her. Hence, even if she had the money, she couldn’t buy anything to eat— how annoying.
Xiaowang slumped next to her, leaning on her to gain a sense of security.
Lin Lan patted him, motioning that there was nothing to be afraid of.
After resting for a while, Lin Lan got up. As her movement was too abrupt, her vision blackened for a moment and her entire being swayed.
“Be careful—” Someone helped steady her in time, which was why she didn’t end up collapsing onto the ground.
Lin Lan knew that this was probably caused by her low blood sugar levels or the low blood pressure. It took some time for the darkness to dissipate from her eyes, needing about an entire minute to regain her sight gradually.
“Well… my friend, are you okay?” The gentle and warm voice made her relax involuntarily.
Lin Lan rubbed her eyes, “Thank you, I’m fine. I’m just a little dizzy.”
She thanked the person and saw that it was a male doctor in a white coat. He was probably around 26 or 27 years old, born with gentle features and handsome traits with a unique bookish spirit.
He was looking at her with a faint smile, his eyes coated with an odd expression.
Lin Lan hurriedly moved away from the male doctor slightly. She held Xiaowang’s hand and the child hugged her thigh tightly with no intention of letting go.
Thanks for reading.
