Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 157
They knew about eccentricity before, but they didn’t think that it would have such a large impact. Now, they weren’t really able to handle it.
With arguments breaking out here and there, Old Man Han asked the second brother to push the bicycle and collect the other valuables to cut down the amount of money they owed.
Han Jinbao didn’t care about the pain in his toes as he jumped up and stopped them, “Eldest brother, second brother, eldest sister-in-law and second sister-in-law, are you just going to let this shrew screw us around? We are a family and we can’t let her succeed.”
Eldest sister-in-law felt that these items were all from the youngest duo, so it didn’t matter to her if they were given to Lin Lan or anyone else.
Eldest sister-in-law took the children to bed and refused to intervene. She asked eldest brother Han to go to bed as well, but he insisted that he would still help out. With that, she ignored everything else as she was already beyond angry at this point.
Lin Lan was waiting at Han Yongfang’s house, “Uncle, I’m really sorry to delay your sleeping schedule.”
Han Qingyun smiled and said, “No worries, we already ate anyways, might as well indulge in sarcastic conversations.”
Han Yongfang glared at him.
Han Qingyun scratched his head, “That was mean of me, sorry, haha.”
Lin Lan, “No problem, but I have to say, you’re pretty good at accounting.”
Han Qingyun felt even more embarrassed.
Han Yongfang coughed and asked Han Qingyun to see why the Han family hadn’t arrived yet.
Soon, Han Qingyun came over with eldest brother and second brother Han.
Old Man Han was ashamed to show up and Han Jinyu’s legs were sore from walking just now, so they sent their eldest sons to do their bidding.
Upon seeing Lin Lan, the second brother’s eyes burning with fire and wanted nothing more to give her a good slap, but he didn’t dare to move, “Now you’re satisfied, aren’t you? The bicycle, radio, and watch are worth 300 Yuan.”
Lin Lan snorted, “I’m sorry, this radio is worthless and I’ll only take 50 Yuan for it. If you don’t believe me, you can go and ask the Supply and Marketing Cooperative.”
Second brother Han wanted to lash out, but Brother Han quickly stopped him and put down the 80 Yuan, “Brother and sister, you two should give it a count.”
Lin Lan picked up the money, “This is only 330 Yuan, but there’s still 1170 Yuan left…”
“Sister, you… Please, our parents said that there was 1,200 Yuan in the closet. Surely you’re not…” The eldest brother Han was embarrassed to say it straight.
Lin Lan looked blank, “Ah? There’s money in the closet? Why didn’t I know about it? If there was that much money, why didn’t our mother share it when the family split up? Mother said that there wasn’t any money left, which was why she gave me a measly 100 Yuan.”
Second brother Han suddenly burst out, “I’ll say, third family, you really are incapable of shame, you…”
“Second brother, shut up!” The eldest brother Han stopped him and said apologetically, “Brother and sister, you know…mother’s temper.”
She wouldn’t even take out a single penny even if she had 1,500 Yuan with her. They knew that the 100 Yuan that Lin Lan was able to receive was due to the courtesy of the old man.
Lin Lan smiled and said, “Why don’t you do this? Since there is 1170 Yuan left, let the two of them share the money and write an IOU(2). They squandered the money, so naturally, they should be the ones who pay it back. As for the old lady’s money, I wouldn’t know anything about that since I didn’t take a penny from them.”

The eldest brother Han looked embarrassed, “Brother and sister, Old Master, you see…”
