The Green Tea's Crushing Victories in the '70s - Chapter 1.2
Before crossing, she was chatting with her fake girlfriends about which era she would want to end up in if she transmigrated. At the time she said that as long as it wasn’t a time where food and clothing were scarce like the 60s or 70s, any era would do.
It just so happens she crossed over to the 70s!
What a day, Teddy!
The problem with the book is the £µ@k*ñg outrageous face slapping.
In the book, the heroine used her golden finger of rebirth to reclaim her identity and robs the fake daughter of her job and fiance, reaching the pinnacle of life.
Tong Xuelu crossed over into the body of the fake daughter in the book. As a stupid female supporting character, she will be face slapped like crazy by the protagonist, schemed into marrying an old man as his second wife, and in the end was a victim of domestic violence.
In other words, she was a tool made stupid for the sake of refreshing face slapping.
Don’t tell me that this is the legendary retribution?
But she was never the other woman, and she never made things hard for her fellow women. As for giving her that kind of black hand?
(TN: 黑手, literally black hand, means a vicious person manipulating things from behind the scene)
Forget it, she’d already crossed over, let’s live a carefree life!
Besides, this body is only 18 years old, seven years younger than she was before crossing. In fact, she’d earned this.
As for the plot involving the golden finger, she was fearless.
Just think of it as changing the map to continue the strategy.
Presently, the biological parents of her body’s original owner had died in a car accident. In addition to the original owner, three other children were also left behind.
Although the three other children are currently penniless, in the future they become big shots among the best in the industry.
There were two ways for her to go from here:
- Stay in the Tong family and fight her way into the real daughter’s house, becoming a black-eyed chicken.
(TN: 乌眼鸡, literally black-eyed chicken, it means to regard each other as enemies, the venomous look of hatred; jealousy)
- Leave the Tong family and go back home to raise the three future bosses
After crossing into a book, she would naturally be the female protagonist in a Shuang wen novel. Whoever wants to stay at home c*ckfighting can go ahead.
(TN: 爽文, literally pleasurable text, a term that refers to those satisfying novels where the lowborn protagonist miraculously succeeds in gaining power or prestige and rises up. Often full of face slapping.)
She wants to raise the little bosses!
Thinking of this she blinked twice and groaned softly.
Sensing the movement, Cai Chunlan went over and roughly pushed her:
“Quickly get up now that you’re awake!”
Tong Xuelu’s lips moved, mumbling something under her breath.
Cai Chunlan couldn’t hear her clearly, and leaned down next to her mouth:
“What the h*ll are you saying!? Speak up!”
Tong Xuelu slightly pursed her lips before reaching out to grab Cai Chunlan’s shoulder and started shrieking like a groundhog: “Ahhhh-”
Caught off guard, her eardrums shook so badly she almost passed away right there.
Cai Chunlan felt like she went deaf, and slapped her hand away: “You’re crazy, what the h*ll are you screaming for?! Oh, my ears…”
Tong Xuelu sat up, clutching her chest with a look of fear on her face.
“I just…I just dreamed that my second sister-in-law became a shrew and wanted to drive me out of the Tong family. It was really terrifying.”
Second brother Tong: “…”
Cai Chunlan: “…”
Cai Chunlan’s ears were ringing for a while, and now that she heard Tong Xuelu call her a shrew, her face turned ugly from anger.
Just as she was about to curse her out, the sound of footsteps came from the doorway.
“What happened? Who’s screaming so loudly?”
Eldest brother Tong and Chen Yueling anxiously rushed in.
Second brother Tong quickly explained: “It’s nothing. It’s just that our little sister was scared awake by a nightmare.”
As soon as he finished explaining, Tong Xuelu burst into tears.
The four people in the room were stunned.
Among them, Cai Chunlan was the most guilty. She straightened her neck, and shouted with wide eyes: “You’re dreaming and scaring yourself, when did I say I’d kick you out? Don’t blame me!”
Although it’s been confirmed Tong Xuelu is not the daughter of the Tong family, after raising for more than ten years, anyone was bound to have feelings.
Her in-laws were very reluctant, so before anything was decided, she didn’t dare to offend Tong Xuelu for fear she would settle the score after autumn.
TN: (秋后算账, literally settling accounts after the autumn harvest, which means waiting until the time is ripe to get revenge)
Tong Xuelu got out of bed and inadvertently revealed the back of her hand that had been slapped red by her: “Don’t worry second sister-in-law, I don’t blame you.”
Seeing this, the two Tong brothers couldn’t help turning to glare at Cai Chunlan.
Cai Chunlan: “…”
Tong Xuelu used her hands to wipe her tears, rubbing her eyes red: “Eldest brother, second brother, this may be the last time I call you guys that. I know I’m not welcome in this family. I’ll leave now.”
Eldest brother Tong: “Little sister, don’t think about nonsense, with big brother here no one in this family will be able to drive you out.”
Second brother Tong glared at his wife again: “That’s right little sister, you just stay at home. There are so many people in the Tong family, can’t we still afford to raise you?”
Cai Chunlan grit her teeth in anger: “…”
Tong Xuelu shook her head: “Although I can’t bear to leave Dad, Mom, my brothers, and sisters-in-laws, I will only make things difficult for everyone by staying. I’d better leave. Thank you guys for tolerating me all these years. I know that in the past I was too willful and let you down again and again, but I won’t from now on. Mom’s knees aren’t good, and they’ll ache whenever their wind and rain. I’ll have to trouble you guys to take care of her from now on. Dad has migraines. You need to keep him from secretly drinking…”
Her voice choked with emotion at the end. Tears filled in her eyes, but she managed to hold them back.
Sometimes people are strange.
If a person who had always been sensible said this everyone would be used to it, but if it’s a person who’s normally unruly, they will feel like the person has grown up and become sensible.
Her two brothers and her first sister-in-law all thought this way.
Especially after seeing the normally stubborn and unruly Tong Xuelu holding back tears with red eyes. Their hearts suddenly softened.
Chen Yue ling walked up and took her hand: “Little sister, you should stay. If you leave like this how are we supposed to explain ourselves to mom and dad when they get back from the hospital?”
The newly returned sister-in-law was really malnourished, and after being scolded by Tong Xuelu she fell into a coma and was rushed to the hospital. When Tong Xuelu saw her parents ignore her, she made a big fuss and hung herself, causing such a commotion even the dogs and chickens were not left in peace.
(TN: 鸡犬不宁, not even the dogs and chickens had peace, pandemonium/great commotion)
She was originally quite dissatisfied with this sister-in-law, Tong Xuelu but now she feels that it is also quite difficult to have lived with and gotten close to her relatives for more than ten years before suddenly being told that there is no blood relationship and that their biological parents also died.
She was pampered and spoiled growing up, it’s understandable she was so emotional when encountering such a situation. If it was her, she would have had a hard time too.
Tong Xuelu still shook her head: “Thank you sister-in-law, but I’ve already decided, from now on I’ll leave the family to my brothers and sisters-in-law.”
After she finished speaking she took back her hand and headed for the door.
Seeing that she was really leaving, the mood became even more complicated.
Brother Tong hurriedly took out all the money he had on him, and told his wife: “You can’t let little sister go empty-handed, Yueling, you quickly pack up little sister’s clothes and let her take it away!”
When second brother Tong saw this he also rushed to take out money, but he didn’t have a lot on him so he turned to Cai Chunlan and asked her to get some from their room.
Cai Chunlan was very unwilling in her heart.
But it was not good to refuse in front of everyone, so, with a black face, she turned her butt around to get the money from the room.
When Tong Xuelu hear what eldest brother Tong was doing, the corners of her mouth curled upwards, and she suddenly started walking at turtle speed.
When she reached the door of the small courtyard, she was counting down “three, two, one.”
The next moment, she heard Chen Yueling catching up: “Little sister, wait a minute.”
Tong Xuelu turned around looking confused: “Sister-in-law, is there anything else?”
Chen Yueling stuffed a military satchel and travel bag in her hands, panting hard: “These clothes you take back to wear, there are still some money and tickets inside, you take it first, later if not enough…”
“No, no!” Startled, Tong Xuelu interrupted her and pushed the bag back. “I’m no longer the daughter of the Tong family, I can’t take the Tong family’s things.”
When Chen Yueling saw her like this, she really thought she had changed: “ Little sister, just accept it! I asked around about that Tong family, your biological one, and the situation isn’t good at all. You still need to eat and drink after you go back. If you go back empty-handed won’t your parents scold us to death once they get back?”
Tong Xuelu looked embarrassed, biting her lip: “…then I’ll take it for now. When I earn money later I’ll return it to my brother and sisters-in-law.”
She didn’t want to take advantage of them, it’s just that the other Tong family is really poor and she’ll need money to get started.
When she makes money later she’ll pay back double the money.
Chen Yueling raised her hand and touched her head, her voice choked slightly: “You kid, how come you suddenly become so sensible, it’s so sad.”
Tong Xuelu’s eyes, were brimming with tears: “I have already died once, and I’m not insensible anymore, so I can’t justify the way I acted, sister-in-law, actually I…”
“Actually what?” Chen Yueling saw she was hesitating to say something and thought she had some difficulties: “If you have something to say, don’t hesitate to tell sister-in-law.”
Tong Xuelu looked at her affectionately: “Sister-in-law, I am afraid that after I leave the Tong family, you will be bullied.”
She’s the little overlord of the Tong family, who else will bully people when she’s gone?
Tong Xuelu: “Sister-in-law should have already noticed, Tong Zhenzhen only came back two days ago but has already formed an alliance with second sister-in-law. Sister-in-law, you’re a kindhearted person and can’t fight with people. I’m afraid you will be wronged and suffer losses in the future!”
Chen Yueling hadn’t thought about this problem before, and her heart couldn’t stop racing at the warning.
She and Cai Chunlan have never dealt with each other. Although Tong Xuelu had a willful personality, she would more or less give her eldest sister-in-law face. Plus she hated Cai Chunlan, so in the past, the two of them dealt with Cai Chunlan together.
Now there is a new sister-in-law that’s standing together with Cai Chunlan, in the future, how can she take on the two of them alone?
Tong Xuelu watched as Chen Yueling frowned, patted her shoulder, then turned away.
As soon as she turned around the corner of her mouth curled upwards.
A bright white smile appeared on her beautiful face.
Tong Xuelu was really reborn to take revenge, she had to find something to keep her busy.
This way she won’t have time to trouble herself.
