Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 595
Lin Lan had no time to pay attention to her.
After the 15th day of the first lunar month, not only were school classes going to start, but publicity work was also going to increase. The busy farming season also had to be put on the schedule, so everyone would have little free time by then.
Who cared about Han Jinyu finding a partner? Who did she think she was?
On the 14th day, Han Qingsong borrowed the brigade’s mule cart and took his family to the county. He wanted to buy a sewing machine for Lin Lan, so he brought his children along to let them walk around.
This time, Maisui and Erwang went straight to the bookstore. The New Year rewards and money they saved up were going to be used to buy several books.
Before leaving, Sanwang coyly gave Maisui 5 cents to compensate for the expenses of Maisui’s book.
Maisui poked her finger and said, “Forget it, there isn’t going to be a next time.”
Sanwang happily kept the money immediately.
For the first time, Xiaowang did not stick to Lin Lan and wanted to follow his Third Brother.
Lin Lan felt that Xiaowang had grown up much more compared to how he acted last year. He was more cheerful and liked to play with his siblings, which was a good thing.
She put 20 cents in Xiaowang’s pocket and asked him to buy some snacks.
Sanwang took Xiaowang and murmured for a while before the youngest took out his own 20 cents to help contribute.
Sanwang, “Just like that?” He thought that his mother must have given Xiaowang the same amount as his elder brothers and sister. In the end, he muttered, “Not as much as me. It seems that mother doesn’t favour you. Maybe you are the one who was picked up(1).”
(T/N: There was a running joke in the previous chapters that Sanwang was not the ‘biological son’ of Lin Lan’s and was simply picked up by the dumpster or something of the sort)
Xiaowang blinked with a simple look on his face, not understanding what he was saying.
Sanwang put the money in his pocket and took Xiaowang’s hand, “Let’s go play with Eldest Brother.”
Lin Lan thought that Dawang had become a lot wiser after being beaten and would definitely not take his two younger brothers to that kind of place, so she gave a light reminder and let them play by themselves.
Anyway, the county town was not big and Xiaowang didn’t have a tendency to run around, so it would be fine with Dawang leading him.
Dawang naturally didn’t dare to go to those places anymore. After all, Director Han had already taken care of him.
He took his two younger brothers shopping while carrying the dried rations on his back. They didn’t like reading anyway and they wouldn’t buy books even if they had money. At most, they would watch movies, buy toys and sweets.
There was a disagreement while watching the movie. Sanwang wanted to watch the war drama ‘Tunnel War’, but Xiaowang shook his head and said, “Mom said my eyesight is not good, so let’s listen to the opera.”
He pointed to the door across them.
Although Sanwang learned of some tunes that resembled howling ghosts and wolves from the radio, it did not mean that he loved listening to operas. He was most impatient listening to a group of people whining away and singing every word to the point of death.
With a movie about war being screened, who on Earth would choose to listen to an opera?
“I’ll listen to Eldest Brother,” Sanwang was sure that Dawang didn’t like to listen to operas. After all, he liked to fight as well.
