Transmigrated Farmgirl's Scheme to Get Rich - Chapter 134
The two of them were already tired of being yelled at by him. Since they thought they’d land a good job soon, why bother to care about his anger?
“We all know the immoral things you did! On the eighth day of the New Year, you asked us to kidnap Miss Ling from Yanling Storefront, and said that you would give each of us a hundred dollars each…”
Manager Liang yelled at them to stop, but everyone already understood that he was the perpetrator, then even made a big show here to ruin the girl’s reputation.
Ms. Liang searched around for a stick, and ruthlessly beat Manager Liang, “You black-hearted bastard, see if I don’t beat you to death today!”
Lu Junming said, “Thanks to our timely arrival that day, Miss Mo Ling was safe and sound. If something had happened that day, you would have been in prison already.”
Just like that, Mo Ling’s reputation was restored.
The onlookers all said that the officials should be alerted, and Lu Junming urged Xiao Chuzi to get the horse again. Zhou Liangsheng said, “This guy does shady things constantly, it’s a disgrace to Qianshui City.”
Who wouldn’t be wary when someone like Manager Liang was in Qianshui City? Everyone told him to get out, and he suddenly became like a street rat. He wanted to rush out of the door, but was blocked by Xiao Chuzi, and he couldn’t escape for a while.
Seeing his state, Mr. Cao said to the widow, “I remember you accompanying your husband to my clinic for treatment. He had tuberculosis, but you didn’t let me spread the word because you were afraid of being rejected by the villagers.”
Tuberculosis was an incurable disease at that time, and it was contagious. When everyone heard about it, both the onlookers and people who came with her recoiled back, “How can you be so vicious and hide the truth? We all have families, what if we got infected? It’s not worth dying for a few hundred dollars.”
So she had hired those people with money.
The woman anxiously argued with a pale face, “Mr. Cao, you didn’t say it was tuberculosis at the time, you just said he had a bad cough!”
Mr. Cao said, “You either forgot, or are unwilling to face reality.”
At this time, she did not say what Mr. Ho’s diagnosis was. It was clear she was full of lies.
Everyone covered their faces and shouted to let the door open. Lu Junming nodded to Xiao Chuzi, who opened the door, and everyone escaped. The widow was also among them, no longer thinking about asking for money, and Manager Liang also escaped in the chaos.
Holding Zhao’er in her arms, Ms. Hua asked in shock, “Sir, did her husband actually suffer from tuberculosis?”
Zhao’er replied, “No, I took his pulse during their visit. It was weak and fluctuating, and I concluded that he had internal bleeding.”
Everyone else didn’t understand, but Mr. Cao smiled very happily, “Zhao’er is really smart. In just a few months, he has understood diagnosing a pulse for the most part. He had a carbuncle in his internal organs which ruptured, causing bleeding. There is no cure.”
After hearing this, Ms. Hua also patted her son’s head, with a face full of relief, “Thank you for your teachings and guidance!”
Ms. Liang and Mo Ling started to clean up the broken things in the courtyard, when the two kidnappers from the back kitchen of Shunlai Restaurant ran back in to ask, “Are you still keeping to your promise?”
Ms. Liang swung her broom at them, “You two bastards dare come back? Who promised you anything? If you ever come back, there’ll be a beating waiting for you.”
The two ran away protecting their heads in their arms. Ms. Hua and Mr. Cao couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Mo Feng asked, “We’re letting them off like that?”
Mr. Cao said with a smile, “Although everyone knew about Manager Liang’s deeds, there was no evidence. Even if you tell the officials, you may not be able to convict him. However, the weight of words crushes people. Neither Manager Liang nor the widow will have an easy time in the future.”
Mo Yan went over to pick Wang Wang up. Ms. Hua said, “Bury it under the tree in the yard!”
When cats and dogs died in the countryside, they were usually buried under trees and used as fertiliser. Ms. Hua took a shovel and dug a hole under the tree. Mo Yan put Wang Wang into the hole and watched the soil gradually bury its small body.
“Godmother, we must get a dog in this yard, one that is big and smart.”
“Okay, I’ll look for one later.”
“Look for two more, we’ll need them in our workshop as well.”
Looking at the dried fruit scattered on the ground, Ms. Liang cursed distressingly, “This group of bastards ruined all our goods.”
Mo Ling said, “Her husband was already dead, and she still wanted to make money from the dead? She really lacked all notion of morals.”
Ms. Hua patted Zhao’er’s head, and said sadly, “When Zhao’er’s father left, he was entangled with that Liu Fengchun.  I was called a shrew by the townspeople for arguing with them. Now that woman’s husband obviously died of illness, but she still dares to come here to mess around and try to blackmail us for money. I don’t know who gave her such courage.”
Manager Liang may have come up with the idea, but he definitely didn’t give her that courage!
Lu Junming stood there, frowned and thought for a moment, “They’ve spent so much trouble just to get you to close your shop. Who will benefit from this?”
Mo Yan smiled slightly after hearing this, “Won’t we know after closing it?”
After hearing this, Ms. Liang dropped the broom in her hand, “No way! We didn’t do anything wrong. If we close the shop for no reason, people will gossip.”
“Mother, if we don’t close this shop, I’m afraid something else might pop up. This time they want to implicate Mo”, she wanted to say Mo Zenian, but she felt it was inappropriate since he was still her biological father.
“Mo Zheng’s father, they would’ve blamed him for the poisoning if we decided to pay reparations. Then, they’d pretend he couldn’t be punished as he couldn’t be found, and then pretend to be merciful, and say we can settle things by closing our shop.
Thankfully, the widow forgot that cats don’t eat dried fruit when making up her story. They also never thought that Mr. Cao would say that her husband had tuberculosis.”
Mr. Cao said, “It was in the heat of the moment. As a doctor, I shouldn’t have lied.”
Xiao Chuzi suddenly remembered something, “I forgot godmother initially asked me to buy food and wine. I only came here because I saw my elder brother and Liangsheng coming this way. After I’ve been gone so long, my godmother must be anxious.”
Lu Junming asked, “What does my mother want with the food and wine?”
Xiao Chuzi chuckled and said, “What do you think?”
Then, he ran out. Mo Yan smiled at Lu Junming and said, “Is your father here?”
Lu Junming turned his head away and didn’t look at her, “I’ll go back to see my mother”, and after saying that, he left the courtyard.
Post-translation notes: The end of this mini-arc, and hopefully means finally getting this storefront closed to move on to more profitable ventures.
 That’s Mo Zenian’s mistress in case you forgot.
