Madam Cao gritted her teeth and said coldly, “You still dare to hit my family? Try it again. Even if I die, my grandchildren will still seek justice from you!”
Hu Changshou and Hu Changyang all came forward with wooden sticks and glared fiercely at Madam Wang. Hu Changshou’s expression was ruthless. “Old woman, I dare you to touch my mother again!”
Hu Changyang bared his teeth at Madam Wang.
Madam Wang was stunned for a moment. She subconsciously looked around.
Her sons didn’t come out at all.
Madam Li and Madam Zhou stood at the back with their heads lowered, not saying a word.
Old Master Su did not stand up for her either. Madam Wang immediately felt her heart turn cold, and her aura seemed to have lowered.
She moved her mouth, but no more nasty words came out.
“Grand Duke Su, Fourth Duke Su is here.”
Old Master Wang’s two sons had invited the elders of the Su family over. They were both very old.
They had witnessed the Su Sanlang family leaving the clan a few years ago.
Because Su Sanlang’s family had led a good life, the clan already disliked Old Master Su.
If Su Sanlang was still in the Su family, then with his current achievements and family, they could earn money no matter what.
Now that they were invited, the two old men’s expressions were cold.
“What’s your family up to now? You’re embarrassing the clan.”
Grand Duke Su reprimanded Old Master Su coldly.
Old Master Su lowered his head and remained silent.
At this moment, Old Master Wang said, “Grand Duke, Fourth Duke, since you’re here, make a decision and settle this matter. If this matter really gets out, if the matchmaker doesn’t enter our place in the future, we won’t be able to talk so nicely anymore.”
“Su Xiaozhi is an outsider’s daughter after all. She’s the daughter-in-law of the Hu family and is going to be disciplined by the Hu family. Now that your family has beaten her up like this, see for yourself how you’re going to give her an explanation.”
Old Master Wang pointed at Madam Cao and Su Xiaozhi.
It was really funny. Old Master Wang felt that he would probably never encounter something like the Su family in his life.
It had always been the case where the daughter was bullied by in-laws and her family went to ask for an explanation.
When it came to the Su family, it was the other way round. The in-laws did not treat her harshly. Instead, the original family was greedy and leeched on their daughter. If they were not satisfied, they would hit their daughter, forcing the in-laws to come and demand an explanation.
It was amazing.
“Say, what’s wrong with your family? Don’t you have any idea that your daughter is married off?”
Fourth Master Su was so angry that he slammed his walking stick against the ground.
They clearly wanted them to coax Su Sanlang’s family back. Su Chong and Su Hua were taught by the number three in the national examinations. At least one of them would make a name for themself in the future?
As long as one was in the clan, there were always benefits to the clan in the future.
Not only did they fail to coax him back, they even tormented their married daughter.
“Return all the money you took.”
Grand Duke Su frowned and looked at Old Master Su.
He glanced at Madam Cao and sighed in his heart. Madam Cao was determined to settle the score.
This was a small matter but also it had big implications.
The Hu family was not small either. If they really angered them, it would not be easy to deal with them.
Without benefits, Madam Cao’s family would not be able to gain any benefits from the Hu family. However, if there were benefits involved, the Hu family would not let it go.
The Su family had sent many children to study in the past few years, but their aptitude was average. Only Su Chong and Su Hua of Su Sanlang’s family had some hope.
The family could not wait to rope him in. They definitely did not want to push Su Sanlang further and further away.
If Su Sanlang helped Su Xiaozhi, it meant that he cared about Su Xiaozhi. Grand Duke Su felt dizzy just thinking about it. He didn’t understand what this family was doing. What a good opportunity. Not only did they screw up, but they also caused trouble.
Seeing that Old Master Su was silent, Grand Duke Su raised his walking stick and hit him. He roared, “Fourth Dog Su, if you don’t say anything, don’t blame us for being rude to you.”
Old Master Su shuddered and felt extremely embarrassed. It had been many years since he had been called by his real name.
He was burning with rage, but he couldn’t find an outlet.
If the clan was angry and their family had a hard time, the clan would not help them in the future. This was definitely not okay.
Old Master Su was immediately discouraged. He said coldly to Madam Wang, “Go and take 18 taels of silver.”
Madam Wang’s heart immediately ached terribly. She was extremely indignant. “Why? I gave birth to her and raised her. This is what she should do!”
Madam Wang felt her heart bleed when he asked her to take the money.
Looking at the village chief, the elders in the clan, and the neighbors who were watching the commotion, no one said anything.
Madam Wang felt like the sky was about to collapse and her vision was turning black. There was no justice in this world.
Madam Wang’s vision turned black. She grabbed Old Master Su and lay down on the ground. She wailed, “I can’t take it anymore, I can’t take it anymore. My vision is turning black and I can’t see clearly. Hurry up and call a doctor…”
Madam Wang did not want to take the money. She only wanted to pretend to be sick and bluff her way through first.
Agree first, and when it was over, she would renege on her promise.
Madam Cao planned, but Madam Cao was not to be trifled with either.
She squatted down and pinched a member of Madam Wang and said, “Old witch, you’re still pretending to be sick. I’m a doctor. I’ll treat you!”
Madam Wang was in so much pain that she almost cried. She pushed Madam Cao away.
Old Master Su’s face was extremely dark. He shouted at Madam Li and Madam Zhou with a cold expression, “Eldest daughter-in-law, Second daughter-in-law, go get it.”
Madam Li and Madam Zhou immediately went.
When Madam Wang heard this, she immediately got up and gritted her teeth as she roared, “Stop right there. I’ll do it myself. Give it to this heartless person.”
“Dear God, how can you be so blind? You should open your eyes and see the lightning strike such an unfilial daughter.”
Madam Wang blew her nose and scolded as she cried.
She did not dare to let Madam Li get involved in such a matter. These two were not good people either.
What if they took this opportunity to steal her money?
Hearing Madam Wang’s curses, everyone shook their heads.
Tsk, this family…
Madam Cao was not offended by Madam Wang. She immediately scolded back, “The heavens are really blind. If they had eyes, they would be the first to kill an insatiable old witch like you!”
“Heaven is watching. It’s not that we don’t want to report it, but it’s not time yet. Just wait patiently!”
Madam Cao vented her anger.
Grand Duke Su and Fourth Duke Su sighed one after another. They were very disappointed in Old Master Su.
Old Master Su felt ashamed. He roared sternly, “You damned thing, are you blind? Come out quickly!”
Madam Wang was dawdling in the house. Old Master Su could not stand it. Now that he was being mocked by so many people, he only felt that he was suffering.
He hated Su Xiaozhi too. Like Su Sanlang, she was useless. If he had known this would happen, he wouldn’t have let them be born.
Madam Wang quickly came out after being shouted at. She threw the silver at Su Xiaozhi and gritted her teeth. “Take it, take it. I don’t want you, you rotten thing. Take it and buy your medicine. Eat it until you die
