Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 131
Lin Lan exaggerated, “Third sister, you are truly impressive for being able to bring these out. Why don’t we have one pastry now?”
She also had some of those stored back at home, but she was reluctant to eat it herself. The children couldn’t even eat their fill either as there just wasn’t enough, so she decided not to bring it.
Lin Mei slapped her hand. She took out the pastries, wrapped them in a bundle and found a haystack that was intact and untouched. Then, she placed the pastries in it.
Lin Lan, “…”
Wow, even this was possible?
After hiding it, Lin Mei snorted, “If you still want your cotton, keep your mouth shut because I’m already collecting it. I’ll send it to you at the next fair.”
At this moment, Lin Lan only had an empty basket and the vegetables on her shoulders. Either way, it was better than showing up with nothing!
“Good, should we go in together?”
Lin Mei also took Xiaowang’s hand, “Let’s go!”
As soon as the three of them entered the yard, it suddenly became drowned in an eerie wave of silence.
Everyone stared at them. They have never seen Xiaowang before, so it was natural for them to not know him. However, it seemed like they didn’t recognise Lin Lan and Lin Mei either.
If the twins were coming in hand-in-hand, they felt like it was going to snow in summer and flood in winter.
“Third aunt and fourth aunt, you two are finally here!” Several children ran over, especially Xiaoxin from the second family, who was the most beloved nephew of the original owner.
The child rushed over and pushed Xiaowang away, “Who are you, get up?”
Xiaowang was so frightened that his face turned pale at the time as he hugged Lin Lan’s thigh tightly.
Lin Lan stuffed a piece of candy into Xiaowang’s mouth and said to Xiaoxin, “You’re a big brother, so don’t scare my Xiaowang.”
“Candy, candy, I want to eat it!” Xiaoxin stretched out his hand to pull the candy from Xiaowang’s mouth.
Pa! Lin Lan slapped Xiaoxin’s hand away with a slap, “What are you doing?”
Upon seeing that his fourth aunt who doted on him the most actually hit him, he couldn’t handle it and started to roll on the ground, making a big fuss.
“What’s going on?” Old Lady Lin rushed out of the room.
Eldest sister Lin and second sister Lin also came over, as did Xiaoxin’s mother and the second daughter-in-law of the Lin family, Tang Hehua.
Tang Hehua picked up her child and asked, “Fourth aunt, what’s going on with you? Flaunting your extravaganza the moment you come home? I heard that you split the family, so how many treasures did you bring home this time?”
Lin Mei, “What are you talking about, second family? The kid Xiaoxin cries and fusses about the moment things don’t go his way. It’s about time you educate him.”
Old Lady Lin looked at Xiaowang, “Come in. If you’re thirsty, have a drink.”
As she spoke, she went to look at the baskets of her two daughters.
The two girls liked to fight and compare, so everytime, they would bring lavish items for her to win each other.
But this time she was stunned.
Why did she bring eggplants in the summer? There were still some more at home that she had yet to finish.
And the fourth daughter’s basket was…empty?
Did she just come to her mother’s place empty-handed?
Did she just come for free food?!
Lin Lan saw that the old lady’s face had changed, so she shoved the basket into her mother’s arms, “Mother, we just split up the family and only have a few kilograms of rations. We don’t have set meals and we’re practically starving. Also, we were given some money but I used it to buy jars and some other household items. Oh, I also bought you a new basket…”
