Her head was spinning. She could barely stand.
When they got here, they didn’t even get a glass of water for her. They didn’t give her a stool. All they knew was the money.
In their eyes, there was only money. The funny thing was that she actually believed it. Every time Madam Wang came to ask for money, even though she felt so terrible, she still gave it to them.
But what she’d gotten in return.
She wanted more and more. How could she continue like this? Su Xiaozhi also understood that no one in the Su family was normal except for her third brother.
They didn’t know how to be grateful. They only knew how to ask for benefits. As soon as they see an opportunity, they would immediately grab it and hold on to it crazily.
Su Xiaozhi was filled with regret.
Madam Wang slapped Su Xiaozhi angrily. She was so angry that her expression was ferocious. Her breathing became rough and her nostrils flared. She grabbed Su Xiaozhi’s hair and slapped her.
“You heartless person. I gave birth to you and raised you, and this is how you treat me? Since you’re so heartless, I’ll just kill you. All of you are heartless.”
Madam Wang lost her mind in anger. Looking at Su Xiaozhi, who dared to disobey her, she immediately thought of Su Sanlang.
She vented all her anger on Su Xiaozhi.
Those with a rotten conscience should be beaten to death.
If one didn’t know how to respect their parents, they should be beaten to death.
Madam Wang’s ruthlessness made Su Xiaozhi unable to react in time. She could only subconsciously reach out to block her.
“I’ll beat you to death, you rotten conscience. You were born of my blood. Whatever I say goes. If you disobey me, I’ll beat you to death…”
Madam Wang cursed fiercely. She grabbed Su Xiaozhi’s hair and slapped her.
Su Xiaozhi felt that her scalp was about to explode from the pain. Her face was filled with pain. When Madam Wang hit her or pinched her, she cried out in pain and begged weakly, “Mother, don’t hit me, don’t hit me. It hurts…”
The Su family watched this scene calmly.
Old Master Su remained silent.
Su Dalang and Su Erlang watched in silence.
Su Chao and the others did not care how Su Xiaozhi was beaten up. They only cared if Su Xiaozhi could give them the money. If Su Xiaozhi refused to give it now, she might give up after being beaten up.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou did not step forward either. In the past few years, they had also gotten beaten up by Madam Wang. Thinking about how Madam Zhao was the one who had to bear all of this in the past, ever since Madam Zhao’s life became better, Madam Wang would torture the two of them whenever she was in a bad mood.
Su Dalang and Su Erlang did not have a good temper either. It was all because Su Sanlang’s family was living too well.
Even Madam Wang was angry that Su Xiaozhi had a good life. Now that Madam Wang had her way with Su Xiaozhi, not only did Madam Li and Madam Zhou not feel bad, they even felt a little happy.
Outside the house, Su Chong and Su Xiaolu frowned.
Su Chong frowned and whispered, “We can’t let her hit Aunt like this.”
Su Chong stood up and picked up a stone from the courtyard. He went to the window and threw a stone at Madam Wang’s arm from where the window paper was broken.
He was very fast, and Madam Wang did not notice as she was hitting Su Xiaozhi angrily. She only felt a pain in her hand and threw Su Xiaozhi away.
Madam Wang’s arm was a little numb. She rubbed it and pointed at Su Xiaozhi fiercely. “I don’t care what method you use, you have to get me fifty taels. If you can’t, I won’t forgive you. Don’t think about severing ties with me. Let me tell you, I won’t suffer the same loss a second time.”
“Hurry up and get lost.”
Madam Wang kicked Su Xiaozhi angrily.
Previously, she had been careless and removed Su Sanlang from the family. Now, she could not gain anything from him.
Now that she had learned her lesson, Su Xiaozhi could forget about severing ties with them!
Su Xiaozhi hung her head with disheveled hair. She got up shakily and walked out with her head hanging, supporting herself with the wall.
None of the people in the house helped her up. They all looked at her coldly.
Su Xiaozhi went out the door and trudged home.
As soon as she left, Su Chao and Su Cai said to Madam Wang under Madam Li’s hinting gaze, “Grandma, what if Aunt doesn’t give it to you?”
“Grandma, if Aunt doesn’t give it to us, will we not be able to get a wife?”
Su Lei also frowned and looked anxious.
Su Dalang and Su Erlang could not help but look at Old Master Su’s expression.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou were also secretly looking at their parents-in-law’s expressions. The family had not split up, and Old Master Su was in charge of public affairs. They did not know how much money the family had.
Now that their sons were getting married, Madam Li and Madam Zhou were both anxious.
Old Master Su said in a deep voice, “What are you all arguing about? Let’s wait for your aunt to send a reply first.”
His family did have the money, but if he took it all out to marry his granddaughter-in-law, his family would be bankrupt.
This money still depended on Su Xiaozhi. She and Su Sanlang were close, so Su Sanlang only needed to give her some money.
Old Master Su did not dislike the way Madam Wang dealt with Su Xiaozhi. He felt that Madam Wang had done the right thing. Su Xiaozhi was not biased towards the family, so it was only right for them to teach her a lesson.
Madam Wang spat out a mouthful of phlegm on the ground and snorted coldly. “Don’t you dare refuse to give me the money. What are you all standing there for? Go back to sleep.”
With Madam Wang’s words, Su Dalang and Su Erlang had nothing to worry about.
They just had to listen to their parents.
The two families came out one by one and went back to their rooms to sleep.
Su Xiaozhi left the Su family as if she had lost her soul. When she was far away from the Su family, she sat by the roadside and cried softly.
The night was quiet. Su Chong and Su Xiaolu followed from afar.
They were also feeling melancholy and neither knew what to say.
For the Su family, they would never be on good terms with them.
Su Xiaolu sighed. If someone had hit her like this, she would have put righteousness before family. At this moment, it was useless.
However, Su Xiaozhi was in pain and sad. It was obvious that it was difficult for her to leave, so she was so sad.
Hearing Su Xiaolu sigh, Su Chong suddenly said, “Xiaolu, Father and Mother will never treat you and Third Sister like this. Hua and I will never allow such a thing to happen.”
Su Xiaolu and Su Xiaoling would also be married off in the future, just like Su Xiaozhi.
When he thought about how everyone was watching Su Xiaozhi being beaten up by Madam Wang today, his heart sank. When he heard Su Xiaolu sigh, he was worried that she would feel uncomfortable.
He and Hua would not allow such a thing, nor would they watch helplessly like Su Dalang and Su Erlang.
“Father and Mother won’t do that. I’m sighing because of Aunt. It’s already like this, but she still can’t bear to…”
Su Xiaolu sighed in her heart. Su Xiaozhi was in pain now because Madam Wang had hit her.
But even then, she hadn’t been able to harden her heart.
Madam Wang probably knew this as well.
“Xiaozhi, is that you?”
At this moment, a worried voice sounded. A figure walked towards Su Xiaozhi from not far away. It was Madam Cao. She was worried about Su Xiaozhi, so she came.
Madam Cao heard faint cries and became even more worried. Her vision was not as good as before after her eyes recovered, and she could not see clearly at night. Along the way, she had taken a stick to feel the way.
