Meanwhile, Madam Zhao had seen Chen Xiuxiu arrive and knew that Madam Wu had taken her to hide in her room, and now the two had been in there chatting for a long time. Finally, she couldn’t hold back any longer and directly flung open the door and stormed inside, scolding loudly: “What time is it already? Why don’t you hurry up and start cooking, you lazy shameless bitch? How could the Su family have let a woman like you marry in?”
Today, it really was Madam Wu’s turn to cook, but when Madam Zhao suddenly burst in and started loudly scolding her, her face still darkened a few shades. Seeing her like this, Chen Xiuxiu laughed out loud. Madam Wu was so fierce while she was outside, but once she was at home she was still pinched and kneaded in her mother-in-law’s hands.
“Anyway, I’ve told you this news. I think my mother-in-law will have finished cooking dinner by now, so I need to go back and eat. When you’ve thought of what you want to do, find me and let me know. We’re both just married ladies for this village, so if I don’t help you, who would I help?” Chen Xiuxiu said pretentiously.
Madam Wu rolled her eyes. Even while she was busy pretending to be a good person, this Chen Xiuxiu continued to deliberately say words to make her unhappy. Madam Wu’s mother-in-law was here scolding her and telling her to cook, meanwhile, Chen Xiuxiu’s mother-in-law had already cooked food for the other woman to eat. How obvious was this contrast?
Of course, Madam Wu knew how Chen Xiuxiu treated her mother-in-law, and it wasn’t something she could imitate. Thanks to that reason, Chen Xiuxiu was known as a shameless person all throughout the village and had a very bad reputation so, obviously, Madam Wu couldn’t be like her. After all, it was largely thanks to having such a mother that Sun Guihua was always at the center of rumors and jokes in the village, and why even though she wanted very much to marry into the Wang family, the Wangs didn’t want her at all.
Madam Wu was feeling nothing but contempt in her heart, but she put on a “moved” expression and said, “Aiya, thank you so much. If I didn’t have you to help me, I really don’t know what I would do. I’m so useless, not like big sister who has someone in town who can help her. I can only depend on you.”
Madam Wu was no pushover, so she immediately shot back. Chen Xiuxiu had just mentioned how Wu Yong couldn’t help them investigate things in town anymore, so Madam Wu directly brought out Chen Xiuxiu’s lover in town. At any rate, Wu Yong’s legs really had been wasted and he couldn’t help so if Chen Xiuxiu really wanted to deal with Su Tang she would need to do something herself.
Chen Xiuxiu’s expression flickered and then smoothed out again. She said, “Well, let’s talk about that later. I’ll wait for you, so come and see me when you’re free. We can discuss things in detail then, but there’s no hurry. At any rate, that brat has already done such an ugly thing so, sooner or later, she is fated to be drowned in the pig cage.”
Madam Wu frowned at those words. Unexpectedly, it seemed that Chen Xiuxiu was completely unwilling to contribute anything. She didn’t bother to say anything more on the topic though, she wasn’t in any hurry. She didn’t believe that Chen Xiuxiu could endure just sitting and doing nothing forever.
After that, the two said their goodbyes, then Chen Xiuxiu left and Madam Wu hurried to start cooking.
Meanwhile, Su Tang had actually noticed that Chen Xiuxiu had run off somewhere as she had been leaving Su Yongqiang’s house, but she didn’t pay much attention to the matter. After all, she had already sent the orange cat into Sujia Village to inquire about any news, especially any news about Madam Wu and her brother Wu Yong, so she wasn’t worried that anything might go wrong.
She wasn’t worried about any small matters Madam Wu and Chen Xiuxiu might be able to stir up.
After returning to Qinghe Town, Su Tang went directly to the Song residence and did nothing else for the rest of the afternoon except study with Song Yi. In the end, she didn’t leave the Song residence and return home until evening.
By that time, the little guy had also come back from the academy. When Su Tang finally came home she found, Luo Xingchen, who was bored with nothing to do, watching over Su Nuo while he studied.
“You’re so engrossed. What about the matter of your residence? Has it all been settled?” Su Tang saw Luo Xingchen absorbedly watching Su Nuo and spoke up curiously.
Of course, when Luo Xingchen and Su Nuo heard Su Tang’s voice, they both looked over with sparkling eyes. “Tang, you’re back!” “Sister, you’re back!”
It seemed that there was some sort of tacit understanding between the big one and the small one. Su Tang felt amused seeing that, then turned to Su Nuo and said, “Well, how have your studies gone today Xiao Nuo? If I’m ever not at home during the afternoons in the future, feel free to ask Brother Luo if there’s anything you don’t understand. He can definitely explain anything, and big sister here will definitely cook delicious food for you come evening.”
