Chen Xiuxiu herself didn’t want to provoke Su Tang, but she did want to deal with the brat. Thus, when she saw these people from the Su family seemed determined to deal with Su Tang, she happily repeated her story to them in an extremely certain tone.
The women from Su Yonggui’s family all listened to Chen Xiuxiu’s story and saw that the other woman didn’t seem to be lying. Moreover, they also felt her story was reasonable. After all, how old was that Su Tang? How could she possibly have made so much money on her own? Obviously, someone must have given her the money.
And, in the past, Su Tang had even specially stressed that outsiders shouldn’t ask her about where her family’s money came from. If that wasn’t proof of her guilty conscience, what was? Her money clearly came from some shameful source.
As she listened to Chen Xiuxiu tell her story, Madam Wu was able to see that both Madam Sun and Madam Zhang seemed to believe her, and she finally relaxed a little. These days that dead old woman at home was keeping a close eye on her, and her brother’s leg had been broken, so her ability to do anything with her own power was greatly limited.
Since she couldn’t make a move against Su Tang on her own, it would be best if she could let the whole Su family do it together. Anyway, Su Tang’s actions this time had offended gods and men, so when everything was exposed she would be drowned in a pig cage for sure. Madam Wu would like to see how arrogant Su Tang could be then.
Madam Wu felt smug. She really didn’t believe, not even for a second, that the little bastard would be able to pull off a miracle like escaping from the river every time!
Madam Wu quickly began to rush home. The only thought in her mind was how both of her parents-in-law, Su Yonggui and Madam Zhao, had been humiliated by Su Tang recently. Su Yonggui had even been humiliated in front of the Su family, so Madam Wu was sure that once they heard this news they would even more eager to make a move against Su Tang than she was.
When Madam Sun and Madam Zhang saw Madam Wu rushing off, they also hurried up a little bit to get home sooner. Soon, the three women gathered in front of Su Yonggui and Madam Zhao and told them what they had learned from Chen Xiuxiu.
“Heh, I saw how that little vixen dressed herself up in such an alluring way, but I didn’t think about it much at first. But now it turns out that is how she earns her money? What will we do if everyone else in the village also learns about her lover like we did? What will the other people think of us, the Su family…” Madam Zhang was halfway through talking when, before she could finish what she was saying, she was pulled aside by Su Sanshou and told to stop speaking.
Meanwhile, Madam Sun had always been a clever woman, so after she came back she just directly reported Chen Xiuxiu’s words as they were and didn’t add any embellishments. After all, she was aware that whatever decision might be made here was completely out of her hands, so there was no need for her to say too much.
“Well, so this is all that slut is capable of? It turns out she was only relying on her rich lover this whole time, but she still dared to look down on us?” Madam Zhao was happy to hear this news and her tone was full of arrogance.
However, Madam Wu felt that Su Yonggui and Madam Zhao’s reactions were different from what she expected. They had finally gotten a firm handle on that little evil seed, so why were they both still so calm? Even Madam Zhao, this dead old woman, had confined herself to just cursing Su Tang a little bit. Judging by her usual temper, this reaction was way too subdued.
Madam Wu began to have a bad feeling. She opened her mouth and wanted to say something, but before she could get a word out Su Yonggui suddenly said, “No one spread this news yet. First, we will wait until the house is finished being built. For now you two, second and third daughter-in-law, will go to town to keep an eye on things and make sure that brat doesn’t run away.”
“Mom, dad, you want to let her go, just like that?” Madam Wu’s own hands were still tied, and she could tell that the situation was not going well for her plans, so her expression turned sullen and she tried to interject.
Immediately, Su Yonggui sent her a firm glare, seemingly telling her to drop the topic with his eyes.
Madam Wu gritted her teeth and began to speak again, pretending to only be thinking for the good of the family, “I just think that girl is too much. She had been so disrespectful to father and mother, so we should teach her a lesson.”
On the side, Madam Sun sneered contemptuously at Madam Wu’s “good person” act.
Meanwhile, Madam Zhao just brushed Madam Wu off impatiently: “Stupid thing, you really don’t know anything.”
Madam Wu, who had been called stupid by her idiotic old mother-in-law, felt humiliated and her eyes narrowed. At the same time, Su Yonggui glanced over at her indifferently. In the past, he had always thought that this eldest daughter-in-law was sensible, but now it seemed she was not. If she continued to behave like this in the future, he would definitely directly divorce her from his eldest son and find him a more obedient wife to replace her.
“You’re all dismissed!” Su Yonggui said in a firm tone, directly sending the younger generations away without bothering to explain anything else.
Madam Zhang and Madam Sun quietly followed their husbands and left the room. Finally, only Madam Wu was left, and only she hadn’t gotten what she had wanted at all. However, she also didn’t dare to say anything more, and could only go back to her room while feeling bewildered.
