Su Tang’s eyes turned a bit red and she looked around at the people who had gathered, “Or let me ask these people who have gathered today, could any of you accept a person like that?”
Su Tang’s words fell on Madam Wu like a barrage of gunfire. She was actually really angry this time from having to face this shameless slag of a man Su Dafu and the pack of bastards around him that had caused a lifelong psychological shadow on a child.
Who could understand better than her the impact of a child’s family and home life on their outlook? In the end, a large part of the reason she had become so withdrawn in her previous life was due to her parents’ divorce. She understood better than most people that, in this world, the people who would hurt you the most would invariably also be the people who were most dear to you. And after going through such experiences, how could anyone get up every day and face the world with love and optimism in their hearts?
No one was worth believing in, except for yourself, that was the lesson she learned long before she came to this strange era. And because of the process she went through to learn that lesson, she knew better than most how difficult it was to recover from injuries to the heart. However, this group of people in front of her were all unscrupulous bastards with no compunctions at all about attacking a child’s weak heart.
There were some injuries that would never be mended, even with a whole lifetime. In these recent days, she had been working hard to restore the little guy’s sense of security and belonging. After all, she knew how it felt to live without any sense of security in your heart and she didn’t want the little guy to have to go through it. But now, thanks to this scum Su Dafu, her efforts would probably be massively set back, if not entirely destroyed.
She had never bothered saying things out so explicitly before because, although she and Su Nuo had been adopted into Su Laochuan’s household, at the end of the day they all still had the same surname Su. No matter what, Su Yonggui’s branch of the family were still their blood relatives. Plus, she and her brother had already been adopted into another household so they didn’t have to cross paths with Su Yonggui’s group or hear what they had to say anymore. Of course, who knew what kinds of things they were saying behind the siblings’ backs.
But today she didn’t feel like putting up with these people anymore. Besides, Su Yonggui and his family had already lost the Su families’ good reputation twice before now, so what was once more? Since they insisted on delivering themselves to her door like this, why would she go out of her way to save face for them?
So for those reasons and a few more besides, the people from all the surrounding villages who had come to pay their respects at the graveyard ended up overhearing the shocking internal situation of the Su family.
Madam Wu had never expected that Su Tang would refute her so brutally and directly like this, and her face turned pale. She opened her mouth to refute: “I… “
“Nephew’s wife, you don’t have to argue. I’m the one standing in front of you today, and let me tell you one thing: When people do things, the heavens are watching. If you don’t believe me, just look around and ask yourself who the heavens spare and who they smite. The things you do, the things you say, it’s all being seen and recorded by the heavens. Don’t forget what the doctor told you back when you gave birth to Wulang.”
Su Tang cut Madam Wu off, not letting her speak at all, and her tone was filled with all sorts of meaningful implications. In fact, back then Madam Wu’s body had problems and it was only after much struggle that she had been able to give birth to Su Wulang, but the doctor had told her that she wouldn’t be able to give birth ever again. Of course, she had been afraid that Su Dafu or Su Yonggui would hear of this, so she had bribed the doctor to keep his mouth shut and, in the end, the doctor really didn’t tell anyone else.
After that, Madam Wu had secretly gone to that doctor for a long time to receive treatments after her son was born weak and sickly thanks to the problems with her body. Of course, not many people knew about all this. Chen Xiuxiu, that woman who loved gossip, had managed to find out through some way or another, but so far no one in the Su family had found out.
Su Tang said these words to shut Madam Wu up.
Madam Wu’s position seemed very solid right now since Su Dafu was currently blindly in love with her to the point that he had completely thrown his first wife to the back of his mind, so much so that he was even willing to allow his own children to be adopted into another person’s household without a word of complaint. Plus, Madam Wu’s family had a bit of money, so he was able to take advantage of their connections to find better jobs and make more money as well as gain various other benefits. And, since Madam Wu was still at the age where there should be no problem for her to have another few children, Su Dafu wasn’t currently worried at all about not having any sons to continue his family line.
However, in this era the standards of medical care were abysmal, and even healthy children would often die before they could grow. So Madam Wu’s weak and sickly son would only find it harder to survive than those ordinary children and. So if Madam Wu’s son were to prove unable to continue Su Dafu’s line, and if the state of Madam Wu’s body was revealed, then Madam Wu would find herself in a very precarious position indeed.
Su Tang’s eyes coldly glared at Madam Wu, full of warning.
