Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 132
As soon as Old Lady Lin released her hand, the basket fell to the ground. It bounced up slightly and then rolled away.
Eldest sister Lin and second sister Lin hurried forward, “Third and fourth sister, what sort of joke are you playing? Don’t anger our mother.”
They helped the old lady to the house.
Lin Lan said in injustice, “Mother, I won’t just drink water now that I’m here. You won’t chase me out just because I didn’t bring food for you, right? We walked all the way here and we’re parched. Besides, I brought a basket, so I’m not really empty–handed.”
Lin Mei was going to die of laughter; this fourth sister of hers was truly insane.
Lin Mei shoved her basket into Lin Lan’s hand, “Since you split up the family, didn’t your mother-in-law split you a vegetable garden or something? You can’t bring some cucumbers and persimmons to your mother? At least two pastries would have been nice. There are too many people today, so you can’t eat,” As she spoke, she looked at Lin Lan proudly, indicating that if she were to dare say anything about the pastries, she wouldn’t give her the cotton.
Lin Lan, “Third sister, how can I compare to you guys? You’ve been in charge of your house for a long time and your family has some wealth. I just split up, so except for the two broken houses, there’s 100 yuan…”
Old Lady Lin immediately turned her head to look at her with burning eyes.
Old Lady Lin had not seen a hundred yuan before as she now possessed less than 20 Yuan.
Lin Lan sighed, “She was supposed to give it to me, but in the end, she said that she would owe it to me. Up till now, I only received 10 Yuan. After buying things from the fair, it wasn’t even enough to buy much. So, I was thinking, mother, do you have…”
“What do you want? Are you trying to ask me for money? I don’t have it!” Old Lady Lin exclaimed.
Lin Mei looked at her fourth sister. She knew about the 100 yuan incident. All the women in Shanzui Village knew that Lin Lan spent it entirely in the fair.
But she guessed that the news hadn’t spread to this side of the world yet.
“If you can’t lend me food or money, maybe two catties of cotton would suffice. Mother, I don’t have quilts and clothes when we divide the family. Now Dawang has no cotton jackets to wear, whereas Erwang’s and Sanwang’s are too small. Say…”
“You…you useless girl, why did I give birth to such a useless girl like you? You always make a fuss, so why didn’t you make a fuss? Have you gone mute? You can take a rope and hang it in front of their house, saying that you can’t handle it anymore. Or you could have gone to the Brigade and try to hang yourself…”
…Now I know why the original owner likes to seek death and frighten people all the time.
Xiaowang cried as he was frightened.
Eldest sister Lin and the eldest sister-in-law Wang Lianying came together to console the child. She even gave him a pastry, “You’re a good boy, don’t cry.”
Wang Lianying said to Old Lady Lin, “Mother, it’s getting late, let’s have dinner earlier.”
Old Lady Lin was not happy, “How can I handle having ten big carrots for dinner?” As the girls’ biological mother, she could handle this. But if her sons didn’t have a problem with it, wouldn’t her daughter-in-laws have a bone to pick with Lin Lan and Lin Mei’s lack of contribution?
Eldest sister Lin said with a smile, “Mother, what are you saying? Can your birth daughter not have the right to come home and have dinner? Was the saying true after all when it said that married daughters were like a basin of splattered water— unwelcome and forgotten?”
