Chapter 4: I Really Regret it to Death

“Sister-in-law, this is your fault.
What do you mean the money is all for Xiao Da to study in high school? This house belongs to your parents’ in-law, not to your own family personally.
Isn’t my Xiao Jun also a grandson of this family, doesn’t he count for anything?   Zhang Qian’s voice was sharp as she strode into the yard, “Mom and Dad, both children are grandsons of the Zhao family, you two as elders can’t favor one over the other.
There’s no reason why the money from the sale of the house is only going to be used on one child.
It’s not like our family doesn’t provide pension money.” As soon as the words fell, she had already come to Li Lan’s side, with a smile all over her face.
  ”Xiao Jun is only 10 years old, and Xiao Da is going to take the high school entrance examination in one year.
Going to school is a big deal, so of course it’s more important for Xiao Da to be given first priority,” Li Lan argued hard.
  ”You two don't need to fight, just leave the money to me.
If either of you have difficulties with your children’s studying fees in the future, I will take it out.” Zhao WeiGuo directly took the envelope out of Qian CuiFang’s hand and put it in his trouser pocket.
He didn't have the face to let the two daughters-in-law continue quarreling in public.
  Li Lan glared at Zhang Qian bitterly, clenching her fists.
  She had been thinking about selling the old house for a long time, and it was for this reason that she had brought the old man into the city.
Now the cooked duck had just flown away, which was now scratching at her heart!   She still has to take care of the two elders and now that she has no choice but to live with them, how can she feel comfortable?

  What's more, her mother-in-law is still a strong woman who likes to make decisions with her own ideas.
If she would have gotten the money from the sale of the house, she could still bear it, but now she has nothing.
Thinking about the future, she is full of anger and grievances!   Jiang Mu smiled brighter than anyone else as she winked at Zhao Yue.
Zhao Yue also raised the corners of her lips, all the anger that was simmering yesterday is gone now.
  ”Why didn't I realize that you have so many evil ideas before?” After all those people left, Zhao Yue laughed.
  It's still my daughter who’s the smartest.
After Zhao Yue came out of her eldest brother's house yesterday, Jiang Mu asked her to contact her second sister-in-law immediately to disclose the news of the sale of the house to her.
  The second sister-in-law is a person who refuses to suffer, how can it be possible for a sum of money to be monopolized by the boss? It was better for her to wake up early and rush over from her home in order to fight for the money.
  Seeing Li Lan's distressed appearance, no one needs to mention how delighted Zhao Yue was.
Her daughter has grown up, is sensible, and knows how to love her mother.
Because of the recent argument between the two sister’s in-law, Zhao Yue's grief from her family was wiped away.
It doesn’t matter if she’s divorced, even if the days to come will be bitter, she is willing.
  The house hadn't been lived in for a long time, so the mother and daughter cleaned up inside and out for most of the day.
  The old house is definitely past its heyday, but fortunately the inside area is quite large.
The homes in this poor neighborhood all use public toilets, here are all public toilets, but the 60 square meters they were living in were tidied up well by the two people.
Inside there are two not too large bedrooms and Zhao Yue deliberately left the big room for her daughter.
  Just by looking at the dusty bed sheet with more than a few patches on it, she is worried that Jiang Mu will not be able to accept living in such a poor environment suddenly, so she thought about going to the cloth shop to get some freshly colored cloth to make a new bed sheet.
  However, thinking again about the little money she had left, her brows furrowed in distress.
I have to buy rice, flour and oil, as well as briquettes.
After the next year, MuMu will be in the third year of junior high school, and she will need to go to a better school.
Money is also a problem and there are daily expenses to worry about at home.
  Why did she trust Jiang Tao so much, why didn't she save some money privately? If she had, things wouldn’t have gotten to the point where it is now.
Zhao Yue regretted it unceasingly, and her hatred for Jiang Tao grew stronger in her heart.
  However, it is too late to regret now.
  Seeing Jiang Mu squatting down on the floor and unpacking her suitcase, Zhao Yue decided that she must find a job as soon as possible and not let her daughter live a hard life with her.
  As soon as Zhao Yue went out, Jiang Mu started to move.
  When she made up her mind to leave with her mother, she took all her belongings with her when she packed her luggage.
  Although her grandparents didn’t like her very much because she was a girl, they still didn’t begrudge giving her a small amount of money in the annual red envelopes and birthday gifts.
  Especially in recent years when they got rich, the red envelopes and birthday gifts her parents gave her became more and more expensive.
In addition, the friends and elders who came to visit her home during the Chinese New Year were also very generous, so she still had her own small coffers.
  Not only that, she also secretly put up all the jewelry that her mother bought in the early years.
For the sake of the Jiang family, her mother was tired and prematurely aging.
These things she had taken are what her mother deserved.
  She is not going to sell the jewelry just yet since her mother is not in the best of health.
When they lived in the capital, Zhao Yue had to be hospitalized every year, so Jiang Mu was going to keep these jewelry for emergencies.
  She sorted out the lucky money and her birthday presents and put them on the bed.
  495 yuan, some exquisite hairpins, head flowers, hair ropes, and a piggy bank.
  Zhao Yue's body is a ticking bomb, so Jiang Mu must earn money as soon as possible.
These small gifts can be sold, and the 495 yuan will her principal for her new venture.
As for what she plans to do with the money, she’d already thought about it last night.
  Jiang Mu put all the money in a pocket inside her padded jacket, and as soon as she went out, she saw Zhao Yue and Grandma Sun sorting out the briquettes and chatting.
  ”This year's briquettes are also more expensive than in previous years.
The black ones cost one yuan per pound.
The yellow ones we use at home are not as good, but they cost two pounds for a yuan.
There is some smoke, but it’s not too bad.
Most of us living here use this kind.” Grandma Sun coughed a few times while talking.
  Zhao Yue also had a hard time and tried to resist her coughs, “It's pretty good, it's cheap.”   ”You don't have a man at home now, wait for your Uncle Sun to come back, and let him pull a cart of the briquettes for you.
Don’t try to do it own your own,” Grandma Sun was very enthusiastic.
  ”Thank you, Auntie Sun.” Zhao Yue was very grateful.
  Jiang Mu had seen this kind of yellowish briquette in the morning; it didn’t burn well, and the smoke was choking.
Thinking of Zhao Yue’s body, she walked over, “Mom, this kind of briquette is too choking, my eyes hurt, and my throat hurts too.”   ”That's fine, mom will buy the good ones, you get what you pay for.” Zhao Yue changed her mind immediately without even thinking about it.
  Sun HongFen just glanced at Jiang Mu and didn't say anything.
She was acting like a little spoiled girl in the city that couldn't live a hard life.
  Jiang Mu said that she wanted to go out and look around to get familiar with the surrounding area.
Zhao Yue gave a few cautionary words but didn't stop her.
When Sun HongFen saw that she was going alone, she called her grandson to accompany Jiang Mu.
In her eyes, everyone will be neighbors from now on, so it's good to be familiar with each other.
  Sun Quan was dark and thin, and small in stature.
He was obviously a year older than Jiang Mu but was half a head shorter than her.
It looked like he was chronically malnourished.
  Jiang Mu frowned.
It seemed that Grandma Sun's family was really suffering.
However, Grandma Sun, who was so miserable, was worried that she and her mother wouldn’t be able to eat in the morning, so she had asked them to eat some of her own food.
  Jiang Mu's heart was heavy.
In order to understand Grandma Sun's kindness, you must know that in this day and age, eating is the most important thing.
If there are her mother and herself eating at their house, Grandma Sun’s family would have to cook a lot more rice.
  Sun Quan was five steps behind Jiang Mu as they walked around the neighborhood.
From his position behind her, he looked her up and down discretely.
Jiang Mu was wearing dark jeans, a red padded jacket, and had a fair face.
She looked like a child of a rich family.
  In contrast his trousers already had two patches, and his old thick coat looked like adult clothes.
The difference between the two was too great.
Jiang Mu didn't speak, and Sun Quan also kept silent, looking down at his feet all the time.

  She came out with a mission and kept silent, so I can’t do anything but follow her lead.
