Back then, the original owner sent a few items back to her mother’s house— such as mosquito nets, cloth, money, and quilts. She would take it back to her mother as long as the items were presentable. There, she would always compete with her third sister to see who could bring in the most goods for their mother. They would also compare whose batch of items were the most lavish, which also caused her dire lack of cotton.
Hence, Lin Lan concluded that the original owner truly knew nothing about accounts and was just trying to look good in front of her mother.
After being called by her third sister, Lin Lan’s mind abruptly flashed with an idea.
She immediately placed the bundles of cloth back onto the cart and told Big Sister Liu, “Don’t worry, she’s family.”
However, Big Sister Liu was already walking towards Lin Mei. She grabbed Lin Mei’s hand and said excitedly, “Big sister, it’s amazing, I sold both pieces of cloth! That big sister bought it!”
Ohh, so you two work together in kahoots, noted.
Oh damn, now that I think about it, Old Lady Han and Lin Mei are rather similar. They might even pass as siblings!
Lin Mei also snorted coldly, “What the hell? Have you gone rich or have you won the lottery? Is Shanzui Village not enough to satisfy you, so you made your way here to flaunt your wealth? Are you really trying to make the entire world aware that you have 100 Yuan to spare?”
“What’s the matter, are you jealous?” Lin Lan smiled eerily, “Third sister, I have now separated my family, shouldn’t you be burning the kang for me?”
Burning the kang was a phrase used to congratulate someone else’s housewarming occasion. Friends and family would usually bring gifts and money to the hosts’ door.
Lin Mei pouted, “What’s the point of burning a kang? Aren’t you going to buy something and take it back to our mother’s place to show off? How much of the 100 Yuan did you spend? Is the remaining enough for mother to spend?”
“Third sister, don’t worry, I won’t cheat. You don’t have that much money either, so I don’t see why I wouldn’t be able to win,” Lin Lan smiled.
Lin Mei pouted and frightened her, “You don’t have to laugh at me. With how much you’re buying right now, mother is going to bring her children and march right up to your doorstep.”
Lin Lan was startled by this. Jesus, I haven’t even started to make up excuses to borrow some money from them, so why the heck are they coming to find me first?
“Third sister, you know, our house is in tatters. There is no place to stand, no place to sit and we’re squeezing a bunch of people onto the kang itself.”
Lin Mei glanced at her, “If you have money, you can build a large brick house. Wouldn’t you be able to flaunt all you want later on?”
“And do you think the bricks are something that the north wind can blow over? Those aren’t simple sticks and stones, so it would definitely be expensive. If you want me to have one so much, why don’t you give them to me?” Lin Lan tried to get closer to the tone of the original owner.
“If you don’t have the money to buy bricks and tiles, why would you have the money to buy these things? You’re not even getting married, so what use is there for obtaining so much cloth?”
“I’m using them as replacements. Besides, the leftovers could be used to wrap around the fence.”
Lin Mei rolled her eyes and ultimately confirmed that her fourth sister was definitely going to send a bunch of goodies back home.
In a few days, it will be their mother’s birthday. Naturally, a daughter would definitely have to return to celebrate the occasion.
