Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 163
Han Jinbao’s toe was smashed and the swelling was evidently huge and conspicuous. Fortunately, it was not broken, but it was enough pain for him. Although he went to the Commune Health Centre to relieve the blood congestion, which was not a big problem since the initial numbness and pain passed, it had become more painful after sleeping for a night.
The whole village could hear him.
Naturally, Lin Lan didn’t bother to care. She told her children to keep Sanwang and Xiaowang at home, whereas Erwang and Maisui could mow the grass. After they take a break, they just need to prepare to cook.
She went to work.
And since she was going to work, it came with the necessary need to be inquired about by the commune members repeatedly.
After all, there was too much trouble that was caused yesterday— scolding, smashing the tank, being beaten up and even went to the Commune Health Centre. But they believed that it was the follow-up that made things even more interesting.
They mentioned that Lin Lan proceeded to chase and try to kill both the Han family’s sister-in-laws. Also, rumour had it that she would chop down the house if she couldn’t manage to cut anyone. They heard that the chickens of the old Han family were chopped to death, threatening that each chicken represented each life for the family! There was also word that she had smashed the wardrobe and made a big hole in the jar.
The gossip was completely unrecognisable after going through a circle of transferrence.
But one fact that remained unchanged was that—Lin Lan had earned a lot. She had a few hundred, perhaps a thousand, at her disposal!
Of course, they didn’t know about the approximate amount. Han Yongfang’s family didn’t gossip about it and the Old Man Han’s family was too embarrassed to talk about it, so they couldn’t do anything else but ask about it from the Han’s younger children.
As we all know, children’s words tend to change once influenced by other parties, which was why their versions of the story differed from one another.
But in short, there was money and even IOU’s!
Tsk tsk, Lin Lan was really powerful; she deserved the title of village tyrant.
Naturally, Lin Lan didn’t want to join in the fun with them. She pretended to be stupid when anyone asked her euphemistically but she also pretended to be angry when they asked her outright. Either way, she frightened quite a number of women, who were afraid that she would unleash her shrew-like temper and turn on them.
Zhang Caihong and Dong Huaihua became more and more friendly towards her as well. They both knew that she had a conflict with her mother-in-law and that the vegetables in her vegetable garden could not be picked.
“Our family can’t possibly finish these, so even if we have excess, they’ll just rot once they get old. So please, just pick them as you like.”
Lin Lan wanted to eat the food for sure, but she couldn’t eat the vegetables that belonged to someone else at the price of nothing, so she said, “Thank you sister-in-law and sisters for taking care of me and the children, but it’s not good to eat your food for nothing. How about this— I’ll still pay for it.”
At this time, money was valuable, so ordering vegetables in vegetable gardens was that much of a big deal in rural areas.
Two or three cents was already enough for a meal.
They all refused, “Qingsong’s wife, are you mocking us? Do you think we would ask for your money for this?”
“Don’t get me wrong, that’s not what I meant. I just want to settle the account properly like an eye for an eye so that I can eat with peace of mind. Otherwise, I’m too embarrassed to always pick them for free from you.”
