Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 84
So, she followed her back. But once they got there, she didn’t intend to back down from her position as the decision-maker of her own family.
Lin Lan and her eldest sister-in-law entered the house. The men hadn’t returned home and they saw their second sister-in-law was gnawing onto a piece of hard and coarse steamed cornbread. Tears and snot were flowing down as she unhappily bit onto the food, expressing her utmost grievance towards her own situation.
Lin Lan smiled and commented, “Second sister-in-law, I didn’t know that you liked to have steamed cornbread that much?”
These days, she wouldn’t even have a bite of the steamed cornbread, so Lin Lan was genuinely curious as to why she was eating it now? Thinking about the time that she asked her how pesticides tasted like, her asking about the sudden tendency to have the steamed cornbread didn’t seem too much of a rude request to her.
The second sister-in-law glared at her angrily before she rolled her eyes and didn’t answer. She remained chewing the steamed cornbread with crunches, as if she was gnawing onto a piece of meat.
Lin Lan was not going to cook; in this life of hers, she was definitely not going to cook meals for Old Lady Han.
Lin Lan walked directly into the east room.
The old lady sighed while she stuck a medicinal plaster on her back, complaining about nothing more than stating that her life was hard, her son was not filial and her daughter-in-law was a scary woman.
Lin Lan glanced at the old lady and her eyes pierced her facade unceremoniously, “I’ll say, old lady, you don’t need to act anymore. Let’s open the skylight and speak up. This time, no matter what you say or do, I will never seek death nor will I harm myself again. If you make me unhappy, I will return the favour in a different way. I just want to split up the family. Even if I go through hardships and struggles, I can at least eat comfortably by myself. Besides, I wouldn’t need to stay here in a place where my family’s bellies were never full and our nights were never warm whilst still having to deal with your eye rolls and insignificant anger.”
Old Lady Han was trembling with anger, “You, you…you…”
She wanted to refute her but she could not find a chance.
Lin Lan’s logical and loud refutes were naturally something that an old rural lady who could only repeat such two-eyed and unfilial remarks could compare with. She continued, “Since the family is divided, then the score should be split in a clear and refreshing way. Allotment, grain, household, and family savings, oh and also, our rations will definitely be taken back. If we don’t get them, then you’ll just have to divide a larger portion for us on the autumn harvest.”
“You- you don’t want to care for the elderly…” the old lady shouted vigorously.
Naturally, Lin Lan would not let the old lady interrupt her ongoing momentum, so she continued, “Also, about the allowance from my children’s father. These years, I believe that you must have at least forked 1800 dollars. Don’t tell me crap like the youngest aunt and uncle need the money for school; I don’t give a damn! We have the responsibility to take care of the two elderly folks, not provide the allowances and the living fees for two useless twats. My own children never had their fill, never slept warmly, never attended school and never saw a doctor when they got sick due to the fact that we didn’t have the money, so why should I take care of other children before mine? You should at least give me about 300 from the money that you have in your hands.”
“In your dreams! Leave, leave, leave!” The old lady was almost going crazy.
