Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 140
However, the results were always unsuccessful, so he was also very annoyed. As he didn’t want to return to his hometown, he stayed in the city, mingling with a bunch of other free-spirited people who wandered aimlessly.
Han Qingsong did not find Han Jinbao, only Han Jinyu.
When Han Jinyu heard that her third brother came to see her, she ran out happily.
She was wearing the most popular dress at the moment. It flattered her thin waist as her hair was tied into two braids. Her bangs were nicely curved as she sported a lady’s watch on her wrist. Adorned by a pair of black leather shoes with cross-straps on her feet and a pair of white socks, her look was not bad compared to the female students in the big city.
Seeing her fashionable and clean dress while thinking about Maisui and Lin Lan, Han Qingsong suddenly felt his wife’s dissatisfaction.
“Third brother, why did you only come to see me now? Haven’t you returned for a few days already? Hurry, take me to the Supply and Marketing Commune and buy me a crystal radio,” Han Jinyu said without rest, pulling Han Qingsong along, “You are an officer, so you can definitely buy it without coupons, right? Jinbao bought one at a high price during the Chinese New Year and it made me mad all day long. Third brother, take me to buy it.”
“Mother sent a letter to you that day, why didn’t you go home?” Han Qingsong asked her.
Han Jinyu smiled playfully, “Third brother, you don’t blame me for not going home to see you, right? Actually, I’m doing it for your own good. I heard that my mother and sister-in-law are making trouble at home, so I’m really embarrassed when I go home. Besides, I went out to sketch with my classmates, so I didn’t have time and I just came back. I came out after I heard that the third brother came to see me. If it was anyone else, they couldn’t have found me since I’m so busy.”
Han Qingsong’s face sank like water, “Where’s Dawang? He didn’t come home after he delivered things to you yesterday.”
“That damn boy— don’t mention him, it’s maddening. Hey, why didn’t Maisui come along? No one is washing my clothes.”
Han Qingsong frowned, “Maisui is so much younger than you. She’s only 9 years old.”
“What’s the matter with that? She’s happy to do it. I said before that I’ll give her these shoes when they break. By the way, mother gave me money to buy a new pair of shoes, but I haven’t had time to go yet. Brother, tell me, wouldn’t it look good to buy a woollen coat like that? But it’s expensive as it costs more than a hundred,” Han Jinyu was still immersed in her longing.
“Where’s Dawang?” Han Qingsong asked.
“He probably went to play with Jinbao. The stinky boy was so mad at me when I asked him to do the laundry for me. He said that if it was a woman’s work, he wouldn’t do it. Third brother, you have to teach him a good lesson.”
“Well, he should be at the state-run restaurant. At this point, they must have gone to drink… Hey, third brother?”
Han Qingsong had already strode away, ignoring Han Jinyu calling him from behind.
Han Jinyu stomped, “What’s wrong with the third brother? It must be that shrew messing him up.”
In the state-run restaurant, several young people were changing the cups.
Han Jinbao held up the wine cup, “Big brother(2), work in the factory…”
(T/N: Not sure if I mentioned this before, but calling someone a big brother or big sister is like a sign of respect, at least saying that they have a higher authority than you. Here, Jinbao is sucking up to this person for benefits)
“Hey, what are you in a hurry for? It’s not recruiting time yet. When it happens, I’ll have my uncle call you first.”
“Thank you brother, thank you. Have another drink.”
