Su Laiwang saw this “lively” scene that was really unbearable to look at, and he couldn’t help but think of Su Tang who was currently sitting in his own house. Comparing the two, his Aunt Tang really didn’t seem like a member of this family at all.
The scene was so ugly that Su Laiwang almost wanted to just leave and not care about them at all. After all, as far as he was concerned, there wasn’t really a need to inform Su Yonggui’s family about this matter. Su Yonggui’s branch didn’t have any serious workers in it except for Su Erlu anyway.
Moreover, the matter being discussed this time was building a house for his Aunt Tang. She would definitely have plenty of people volunteering to work for her, so why would she hire anyone from Su Yonggui’s family?
Su Laiwang could see very clearly that his Aunt Tang was undoubtedly capable and her skills were very impressive. However, she also didn’t like Su Yonggui’s family.
All that in mind, Su Laiwang hadn’t really wanted to come to Su Yonggui’s house to invite them, but his eldest brother, Su Laixi, told him that, at the end of the day, they were still members of the Su family. Their father was the Su family patriarch, and it wouldn’t be good for him if it seemed like he was deliberately excluding Su Yonggui’s branch of the family.
Anyway, Aunt Tang would also be attending the meeting today and there was pretty much no chance she would hire anyone from Su Yonggui’s family. But that was actually fine. After all, not all of the families that came to attend the meeting would have the opportunity to work on the house since there just wasn’t enough work to go around, but everyone still need to be notified and invited to the meeting.
“Anyway, my father told me to come and tell you all that we will be holding a Su family meeting at our home later in the afternoon. I’m glad you all know about it now.” Su Laiwang didn’t want to tell these people too much, so he just said what he needed to say, then sent them one final glance before turning and leaving.
Madam Zhao continued to curse her third daughter-in-law for a few more rounds to let out the anger in her heart and didn’t even notice that Su Laiwang had left. Meanwhile, Madam Wu merely stood to the side and listened on, her brows slightly furrowed. She somehow felt that the way Su Laiwang looked at them today seemed a bit strange.
She suddenly recalled that Su Yongqiang and his family had a good relationship with those two evil little brats, and she began to wonder if maybe the meeting today might have something to do with them.
Madam Wu subconsciously didn’t want to believe it, but those two were practically two evil spirits. Even after being thrown into the river they hadn’t died, so she didn’t reject the notion outright.
Madam Wu shook her head when she saw that Madam Zhao was still spitting curses and said directly, “Niang, the weather is getting hot but Dafu’s summer clothes are not ready yet. I’m going to go back and sew some more.”
Madam Sun saw Madam Wu trying to slip away and rolled her eyes. This woman really knew how to make excuses for herself! But, at the same time, Madam Sun also couldn’t stand Madam Zhao’s constant swearing, so she hurriedly pulled her own husband and said, “Mother, we will also go back.”
Although Su Erlu was filial to the point of foolishness, he was still obedient to his wife. Moreover, no one liked to stand around and be scolded, so he also followed Madam Sun into the house, leaving only Madam Zhang and Su Sanshou standing outside. Su Sanshou saw everyone else had already left and hurried over to coax Madam Zhao.
Madam Zhang herself returned to their room to hide. A little while later, Su Sanshou came back with more than a dozen copper coins he had managed to fool from Madam Zhao in his pocket. He quickly began to discuss with his wife whether they should secretly go to town in the afternoon to buy some chicken legs to eat.
Of course, it wasn’t only Su Yonggui’s family who were confused when they got the news of the meeting. Most of the Su family didn’t understand why the patriarch would want to call them over. But he was the patriarch, after all, so they all gave him face and, after lunch, they began going over to Su Yongqiang’s house one after another.
Meanwhile, Wang Changhe also heard that the Su family seemed to be calling a meeting, and he couldn’t help but feel cautious. After all, not too long ago the Su family had spread rumors that his son, Wang Xiaotian, had been seen going around with that girl from the Sun family. Thanks to that, he still hadn’t been able to get rid of the entanglement of the Sun family even until now. Wang Changhe was full of rage just thinking about it.
As the old saying went, barefoot people were not afraid of people wearing shoes. The Sun family was very poor and were determined to cling to the Wang family to rise up, which was why they could be so stubborn and shameless. Wang Changhe had come up with a good plan to smear Chen Xiuxiu with the reputation of a thief, but in the end the plan failed thanks to Su Tang and he lost a good opportunity to get rid of that shameless woman. Unfortunately, his son was studying to be an official so Wang Changhe could only be very careful not to do anything that might hurt his reputation, thanks to that he was helpless against the Sun family’s shameless tactics.
Whenever he thought of how Su Tang had caused trouble and thanks to that his plan had failed, Wang Changhe would be so angry that he even wanted to directly throw her into the river himself. If she had only died back then, how could she have had the chance to make troubles for him?
