Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 542
However, Lin Lan could tell at a glance that Old Lady Han was more biassed now, seemingly trying to cut costs by minimising the amount of privileges the First and Second Family’s wives and children could own.
If the meat was shared during the Chinese New Year, everyone wouldn’t have qualms with them.
But taking it only for the men and Han Jinyu to enjoy was tipping the scale of balance off.
So the dishes brought by Lin Lan were separated by Eldest Sister-in-law Han and most of them were put on the bottom. Only a small part was brought up to the south kang, but there were none on the north kang.
Second Sister-in-Law Han was still using chopsticks to pick apart the food, trying to find a single piece of meat from it, but the results were all cabbage, so where was the meat?
She shouted, “Eldest Sister-in-law, didn’t the Third Family bring a lot of meat dishes? Why don’t we see any of them? I saw that there were roasted potatoes, chicken and pork skin, so why didn’t you bring them over?”
Eldest Sister-in-law Han said in a bad mood, “They’re on the south kang.”
Second Sister-in-law Han then curled her lips and stayed silent.
Nevertheless, Han Jinyu went to the north kang and looked all over the table, seeing two different dishes in the two bowls. At first glance, she could tell that these were dishes that Lin Lan made.
But no matter what, the food they had on this kang and the main kang didn’t amount to the portion of food that Lin Lan had brought!
She immediately bypassed Old Lady Han and Second Brother Han, jumped off the kang and rushed to the main room. Seeing Eldest Sister-in-law Han, Lin Lan and the others happily eating below, she screamed, “You guys are going too far! I can’t believe that you’re secretly eating all the good food here!”
Eldest Sister-in-law Han, “What do you mean secretly eating? Your Third Sister-in-law brought this and now, her family is eating it— what’s wrong with all that?”
Second sister-in-law Han also rushed over when she heard her words, “Aiya, Eldest Sister-in-law, why are you eating all this alone?”
Old Lady Han was also angry when she heard it, “What’s going on? Why didn’t you bring me the big fish and meat brought by Old Three?”
When Eldest Brother Han saw this, he hurried to the main room to serve it, but Han Qingsong held his arm.
Han Qingsong, “Eldest Brother, sit down.”
Seeing her Third Brother’s behaviour, Han Jinyu could clearly see that he was protecting Lin Lan and the Eldest Sister-in-law. Immediately, she couldn’t take it anymore, “Eldest Brother, my Eldest Sister-in-law is really interesting, is she not? With the way she acts, it’s almost as if our mother forbade her to eat at all. I can’t believe she’s even secretly eating food behind our parents’ backs; who would have ever thought that she was a sneaky one.”
Eldest Brother Han, who cared about his reputation, would already suffer for a long time if anyone had a slightly negligent attitude towards, let alone such an obvious accusation from his own sister. It was undoubtedly heard by the entire family as well.
His face became flushed and he didn’t know what to say.
Han Qingsong frowned slightly and glanced at Han Jinyu, “You’re the only one who has a lot to say.”
Han Qingsong was rarely one to judge someone’s shortcomings subjectively, let alone accusing others of embarrassing someone else, no matter if it was done directly or behind their backs. Hence, everyone thought of him as strict but generous, and even though they were afraid of him, they respected him as well.
It was the first time for him to say something like this to Han Jinyu.
