Springtime Farming: A Happy Wife At Home - Chapter 69 - 69 Qiao Xuan’s Idea
69 Qiao Xuan’s Idea
Yang Liang was startled and started to hesitate.
He knew pretty well that but for Shao Sanlang’s affection towards Xiaoni, no families would turn their eyes upon a family like them.
Ms. Tian sneered. “You don’t have to worry about a thing!”
Qiao Xuan suddenly realized what was going on.
Ms. Tian was trying to make this marriage not happen.
All families were worried that their girls would be too old to get married, yet Ms. Tian feared nothing. She did not care about Yang Xiaoni, nor did she care about her reputation.
She disliked Yang Xiaoni.
No, she hated her!
“We want to offer 20 liang as a wedding gift. Are you not going to consider it?”
“No, no way!”
“Think about this, and we will come to you in a couple of days,” said Qiao Xuan and left with Ms. Fang.
“Mom, let’s go to the village and find the Land Officer there. We can ask the chiefs of the Yang Family for help.”
Ms. Fang sighed. “Silly girl, it won’t work even if we speak with them. They can’t make the decision either. Yang Liang and Ms. Tian are a greedy couple and they won’t listen to anyone.”
It was always the parents who decided who their daughter should marry, and when the parents were gone, their siblings would make the decision instead.
Who else could have the authority!
Qiao Xuan sneered. “Mom, we don’t need them to have the decision making authority. What we need is just to let the Yang village know that we are here to establish a marital relationship sincerely. There should be a turning point after that.”
Ms. Fang, who was angry, suddenly turned lively. She nodded. “We can discuss this in detail. We should let everyone know what is going on, and at least, we can make the couple feel bad.”
Ms. Fang did not think that there would be any turning point.
But, she could at least vent the anger.
So, they headed to the Land Officer of the Yang Village and then, they went to the chiefs and aunts. All of them could not help but sigh…
Soon, the story spread all over the whole village.
“Yang Liang and his wife are crazy! Xiaoni is very pretty, and the Shao Family are so devoted. How could they say no?”
“True, that is 20 liang. My daughter’s wedding gift was only 6 liang!”
“The couple is really terrible, you know.”
“Ms. Tian lectures and hits Xiaoni and she has to do all the labor of the family. They would not want to marry her away.”
“But Xiaoni has grown up. Are they going to keep her next to them forever? That is just too immoral!”
“How dare you marry a girl to their family. It is definitely a pit!”
“Poor Xiaoni. She has no parents. Her brother is such a useless man and her sister-in-law is stingy. Sigh!”
“Poor girl, indeed!”
Yang Liang was so humiliated that he did not dare to go out. He was the brother, yet he was doing something wrong.
Ms. Fang got really annoyed. She cursed at Ms. Fang and Ms. Qiao, and then she called the villagers nosy. They were not in the position to discuss their family affairs. It had nothing to do with them!
“I can marry my sister-in-law to anyone I want. None of your business!”
“I don’t care about the goddamned Shao Family!”
“You can take them from me, if you want to!”
