WBVDEC Chapter 69 – Best Quality (2)
Jiang Yu looked at the wood stove in front of her and was dumbfounded. She had never used one, how would she cook in it? After pondering for a while, she put all the firewood in and then used some old paper to ignite the fire just like the way of hot pot restaurant. After a while, the dry firewood burst into flames. Then, put water in a pot and heat it up. She then went to the chicken coop and caught a chicken.
On the other side, the little sister said to Zhang Meifeng: "Auntie, don't forget that I am pregnant with the descendants of your Old Jiang family. My mother said that the dowry must be 80,000 yuan, the engagement must be 20,000 yuan, and there must also be three gold coins, cannot be less!"
Was this marrying a daughter or selling a daughter? Zhang Meifeng had already scolded the little sister 10,000 times in her heart, but she didn't show it on her face. "Okay, I'll find a way to get everything together."
After the little sister left, Zhang Meifeng whispered to her two daughters: "Your brother has already enlarged that dead girl's belly. I heard that dead girl said that she is pregnant with a boy. Your brother is the only seed in our Old Jiang family. This marriage has to be done, but the dead girl threatened me with the child, saying that if I don’t give 100,000 yuan, she won’t get married. And I also have to buy three gold coins, but the family really can’t come up with this much money…"
A calculation flashed in Jiang Jie's eyes, she smiled and said: "Mom, it's a simple matter. I remember that Uncle Zhang's family came to ask Jiang Yu for a proposal and even promised to give a 100,000 yuan betrothal gift. You might as well agree to this matter. You must know that with Jiang Yu's character, how can she stand in a big city? We do this for her own good. The Zhang family who came to propose marriage this time is a rich man who owns a factory in town! If Jiang Yu can marry him, it is good for her, she would be full of happiness."
"Yes." Jiang Lan also interjected, "If she hadn't gone to college, how could the Zhang family like her? This time Zhang family proposed and promised to give 100,000 yuan as betrothal gift, which is just right for the younger brother to get married! "
Seeing her two daughters supporting her, Zhang Meifeng said with satisfaction: "Fortunately she's still so stupid. I'll tell her later that she has to agree, so she has to agree! After all, your brother's marriage is important!"
After speaking, Zhang Meifeng sniffed her nose and suddenly smelled a mushy smell. "Where does this smell come from? There is also a smell of chicken shit?"
Jiang Jie also stood up and looked out the window looking for the smell, but she saw a thick smoke coming out of the kitchen instead. "Mom! It's from the kitchen!"
The people hurried to the kitchen and saw smoke everywhere in the kitchen. Jiang Yu was standing beside the big wood stove. Her tears were streaming down from the smoke.
Zhang Meifeng was in a hurry, she ran over, and when she saw the scene, she was so angry that she scolded: "It took me eight f*cking lifetimes of blood to give birth to you! You don't know how to open the door of the stove when you lit it up? Also, what are you doing with so much wood?"
Jiang Yu shrugged innocently: "I've been in college for a long time. I forgot how to cook a wood stove."
At this moment, Zhang Meifeng suddenly heard a "clucking" sound of chickens, and a thumping sound came from the pot. She covered her nose and opened the lid of the pot, but she saw that the big cock with flower wings she raised had shed all its hair and its feet were covered with chicken feces. Seeing that the pots were opened, the big cock jumped up and lay in the corner clucking.
Seeing the chicken running away, Jiang Yu said sorry in her heart.
Zhang Meifeng was so angry that she was about to explode. At this time, the fire was getting bigger and bigger, and the kitchen seemed to be on fire. The two walked out of the kitchen and she reached out to hit Jiang Yu, but Jiang Yu escaped without a trace.
Zhang Meifeng didn't manage to hit Jiang Yu, so she picked up the shovel on the side. With all her strength, she threw the shovel toward Jiang Yu.
Jiang Yu frowned and ran away, she saw the shovel fell on the place where she had stood, and the concrete floor was scraped off by the shovel, which means that Zhang Meifeng really wanted to kill her.
Jiang Yu sneered.
Jiang Jie said angrily, "Jiang Yu, what are you trying to do?! Do you want to burn your house down? Mom worked so hard to provide for your studies, but you treat her like this?"
Jiang Yu suddenly smiled and she said with a mocking tone: "Work so hard for me to study? Say it again? I didn't understand. Is it because your eyes are not good or because we don't live on the same earth? I haven't received a penny for living expenses from her so far this year. I work and earn money to study by myself, it has nothing to do with her!"
After hearing this, several people did not speak. Zhang Meifeng's eyes dodged the people’s stare and then sneered: "The family is so poor, how can I get the money for you to study? I just asked you to cook a meal but you make the kitchen like this. You're doing this on purpose to not to let me live, aren't you?!"
Jiang Yu shrugged sincerely: "Sorry, I don't know how to use a wood stove, and I don't know how to kill chickens. I'm not happy if you ask me to cook and serve your family!"
At this time, Zhao Chenglei came out and taught Jiang Yu in a very bad tone: "Jiang Yu, are you trying to get along with me like this? You still have to eat yourself, but if you make something for us to eat, you won't be happy? It's a woman's duty to do laundry, cook, and serve men. This kind of temper, who will dare to marry you in the future?"
Jiang Yu raised her lips and smiled lightly: "Brother-in-law, it's fine if you don't want me. If I marry someone like you in the future, I might as well die!" After she finished speaking, she sighed in her heart. She originally intended to not fight against this group, but she couldn't help it.
When things got like this, the unhappy person was Zhang Meifeng. In her opinion, even if the whole family could not eat, her son-in-law had to. Thinking of this, she entered the kitchen with a gloomy expression and cooked some dishes. Soon, the family gathered around the dining table to eat.
At this time, the little sister clutched her stomach and said coquettishly: "Mingxuan, they want to eat chicken legs."
When Jiang Mingxuan heard the words, he immediately pulled the dishes and gave the little sister biggest drumstick, "Wenwen, you need to make up more. You can eat this drumstick."
Seeing this, Zhang Meifeng smiled and put another chicken leg in Jiang Mingxuan's bowl: "Son, you eat too." After speaking, she gave Zhao Chenglei a chicken wing.
Zhao Chenglei smiled and said, "Mom, I don't eat chicken wings, you can give it to someone else!"
"Ah!" Zhang Meifeng smiled and gave the two chicken wings to Jiang Jie and Jiang Lan. "Eat more supplements, especially you Jiang Jie. It's been hard to make money recently, right? Get more nutrition and work well."
The family happily ate the dishes in the bowl with a smile, with the exception of Jiang Yu.
At this time, Jiang Mingxuan finished eating the chicken drumsticks, plucked the chicken dish, took out something, looked at it for a while, and then threw it into the Jiang Yu bowl with disgust: "Here, your ass!"
Jiang Yu looked at the chicken butt in her bowl and lost her appetite instantly. She searched her memory and found that in her original memory, every time the family cooked chicken, Zhang Meifeng always gave Jiang Mingxuan two chicken legs, and Jiang Jie and Jiang Lan one wing each. Meanwhile for the original owner, Zhang Meifeng always said that chicken butts were delicious. After a long time, the original owner had always thought that giving her chicken butts was her mother love for her.
No one thought it's wrong, but Jiang Yu felt sour in her heart. It was very unpleasant and worthless for the original owner to cherish this kind of family.
At this time, Zhang Meifeng suddenly said: "Jiang Yu, I called you back this time to tell you something."
Jiang Yu's whole body was tense.
Zhang Meifeng continue: "Your Uncle Zhang came a few days ago and talked about his son Zhang Zhi. Zhang Zhi is about the same age as you. Your dad and I both think Zhang Zhi is good and want to marry you to him."
"Zhang Zhi?" Wenwen blurted out after hearing this: "Isn’t that the fool who suffered from encephalitis as a child? Uncle Zhang locks him in the kitchen every day, where can he cause trouble? Of course he will be good." After she finished speaking, she sneered, looking at Jiang Yu's eyes full of weirdness, full of expressions watching a good show.
Seeing Jiang Yu did not speak, Jiang Jie suddenly turned into a confidant sister, and she said warmly: "Jiang Yu, it is all for your own good. Zhang Zhi is honest, he doesn't talk much, and doesn't like to cause trouble. If you follow him, we can rest assured. You have been studying in school, you may not know that men in today's society are. They are broken and always like to play with women! You don't have to worry about these things when you follow Zhang Zhi."
"Yeah, Zhang Zhi is good. Both of you are also a childhood sweetheart." Jiang Lan said.
After hearing this, Jiang Yu glanced blankly at her so-called family members at the table. She understood why they had not contacted for more than half a year but suddenly sent a text message to call her home. It turned out that they had dug a trap and waited for her to jump.
Jiang Yu looked at Jiang Jie with a calm expression: "Sister, since men in society are so bad, why don't you marry Zhang Zhi and instead find Zhao Chenglei as your husband?"
Jiang Jie was speechless when asked. She looked at Jiang Yu after a long while, but saw that Jiang Yu was the same as she remembered, her face was mostly covered by bangs and glasses frames, her facial features were not visible, and her skin was a little dark and oily.
Of course, if Jiang Jie asked Jiang Yu, she would tell her that it was just makeup.
Jiang Jie's heart suddenly became more balanced. What if Jiang Yu went to university? She was still not living a good life! She was not as good as herself and when she marries Zhang Zhi in the future, she was destined to be incomparable to herself in this life.
Thinking of this, Jiang Jie's tone was disdainful: "Can you compare with me? Look in the mirror to see how you look! If you want to marry someone like your brother-in-law, you have to be seen by others!"
With a mocking arc at the corner of Jiang Yu's mouth, she looked at Jiang Lan with a smile, but people still couldn't see the slightest bit of anger on her face. "Jiang Lan, if I remember correctly, Zhang Zhi is the same age as you. That is to say, all the girls in our village are childhood sweethearts with Zhang Zhi. If that's the case, why don't you marry him?"
Jiang Lan blushed. After a while, she simply tore her face and said ruthlessly: "Jiang Yu, why should I marry that fool? Do you think I am as cheap as you?"
"Eh, neither of you want to marry him, but you were coaxing me saying it’s for my own good?" Jiang Yu sneered.
Under the pressure of Jiang Yu's eyes, everyone bowed their heads in unison.
Jiang Jie was stunned for a moment. She felt strange in her heart. Jiang Yu was the same as before, dressed in unremarkable clothes and her face was not outstanding, but her aura was much stronger when she spoke now, and she gave a kind of invisible pressure.
Jiang Yu put down her chopsticks, grinned with the corner of her mouth, and glanced at the group of people, "I can marry Zhang Zhi."
Zhang Meifeng was overjoyed. She took Jiang Yu's hand and flattered: "Then go get engaged tomorrow and ask for the gift. You can get married after the New Year! Let's be lively together!"
Jiang Yu suddenly raised the corners of her lips and her smile suddenly turned dark.
That smile chilled Zhang Meifeng's back.
Jiang Yu's fingers tapped on the table, as if she didn't feel that she was going to be sold at all. She only said in a light tone: "Engagement? Okay, but before that, I'll buy a pack of rat poison. When I have nothing to do, I'll put some in my rice or water, or I'll smear some on my rice bowl... After I died, then you can do the red and white things together! See how lively it will be!"
