Chapter 462: Sarcastic Remarks? Retaliate!
Many people had come over to the Southern Lake Brigade first thing in the morning to hear the latest news and pry into the Mo family’s affairs.
Yesterday, Mo Beihan had brought the children to the brigade leader, Jiang Feng, but Jiang Feng had told him to go back and consider the matter carefully. They had all heard that.
Right now, there were more people than ever in the sheltered corner outside the Mo house. That included those who disliked Jiang Yingqiu and Gu Qingyao. They would love to add fuel to the fire.
Chen Honghua’s mother, Wang Qiuhua, Sun Mei’s mother, Qin Yufeng, and Liu Zao’s mother, Miao Cuilan, were all there.
Jiang Yingqiu sat next to them and also sunned herself. She was holding her needlework, but she looked distracted and troubled.
A woman nudged Jiang Yingqiu. “Hey, are you really going to adopt so many children? Then you will have six. And Beihan will have his own children too. How will he support so many children?”
Another person hurried to add, “That’s right! Look, you’ve had such a hard life since you were young. Now Beihan has finally succeeded, and you can relax a little, but another four children have turned up. What will you do?”
Qin Yufeng was all smiles, clearly delighting in her misfortune. “Why are all of you so worried? They can afford to raise so many children.”
She turned to look at Jiang Yingqiu. “Wow, I really did not know that your Beihan is so capable. He’s so young but can support so many children. Wow, wow, wow!”
Miao Cuilan had intended to marry her daughter to Mo Beihan, but now there were suddenly so many children in the Mo family. She rejoiced that her daughter had not married into the Mo family. Otherwise, she would have raised her daughter for nothing.
She did not even want to support the two extra grandchildren, much less Jiang Xun and Jiang Ping, who were not related by blood.
In the past, they already had two children to feed, now there were even more!
She chuckled. “It’s not easy to raise so many children. Looks like your Beihan is really good at earning money. No wonder he did not fancy any of the girls in our brigade, but insisted on finding a city girl! But in the end, no city girl was willing to come over to be a maid, so he ended up with the Gu family’s daughter, who was left on the shelf. Now that there are another four children, your household will be really lively.”
Wang Qiuhua sniggered. “It’s a blessing to have so many sons! It’s a good thing! Most people don’t have so many children even if they wanted them!”
“Think about it, if Mo Beihan has a few children over the next few years, things will be really lively!”
When Jiang Yingqiu heard this, she was visibly displeased. She grunted coldly. “My Beihan has never said that he must marry a city girl. He has known the Gu brothers since they were young, and I watched Yao Yao grow up. When Beihan got engaged to her, we knew her background and we only wanted a peaceful life. We’re not like some people who are always trying and failing to climb the social ladder.
“Hmph! Even if my Beihan really wanted to marry a city girl, he has the ability to do so. He’s handsome and has a good job. If he were really looking for one, I’m sure he could find a girl willing to marry him.
“Not like some people who are always trying to toady up to useless folks. When you heard she had gone to the city, you clung to her like a dying man clutches at straws. The truth is that you have no ability and do not know any other city folk.
“In the end, you lost both her and your money, and after that fiasco, no one in the brigade dares to marry your child.”
“You… who are you talking about?” Qin Yufeng and Miao Cuilan’s expressions changed. They were furious.
It was clear that Jiang Yingqiu was mocking their daughters for currying Gu Ruoqing’s favor. This matter had caused them much heartache.
