Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 112
Mdm Lian looked at her and said worriedly, “Oh right, Lu Sheng, I have something to tell you.”
Lu Sheng nodded. “Please go ahead, Aunt.”
“Didn’t your uncle say a few months ago that he would give a betrothal gift of five taels? It’s just that your grandma had given the money to you previously. Somehow, the girl’s family found out about this. Now, they’ve found your uncle and brought up the betrothal gift again. They said they won’t allow her to marry him if they don’t receive twenty taels.”
As she spoke, Mdm Lian felt a bit embarrassed. “I shouldn’t have let you youngsters know about this. It’s just that your uncle has a boring personality. Everyone in that family is forcing him now. He can’t break off the engagement even if he wanted to.”
She thought that Lu Ran and Lu Sheng were not pushovers anymore. She should let them know about this.
“Can’t break off?”
Lu Sheng frowned. “If my uncle can’t take out so much money, why are they insisting on this?”
He should not marry such a family even if he could fork out twenty taels.
Otherwise, he would not be able to shake her off in the future.
Mdm Lian sighed softly. “If he wants to break off the engagement now, he has to compensate them with ten taels or give twenty taels as the betrothal gift. You know your grandma’s situation as well. How can she take out so much money?”
Lu Sheng smiled coldly. She looked at Mdm Lian and said, “Thank you for telling me, Aunt. I’ll settle this matter.”
Mdm Lian smiled and nodded. “I knew you would have a way. Your grandma even instructed me repeatedly not to tell you so that you don’t have to worry.”
If Lu Sheng was still the quiet Lu Sheng from before and Lu Ran was still the Lu Ran who followed Sun Hu and the rest, she would definitely listen to Mdm Zhao’s words and not tell them.
However, she felt that the Lu Sheng and Lu Ran today would definitely be able to resolve this matter.
After sending Mdm Lian off, Lu Sheng returned to her room to clean up.
She brought her clothes and the two children’s. Then, she brought the carriage out and let the two children wash their hands.
“Second Sister, where are we going?”
Lu Jiang stuck his hand into the wooden basin filled with warm water and asked suspiciously.
“To Grandma’s house.”
Lu Sheng replied as she washed Lu Xin’s face.
“To Grandma’s house!”
Lu Xin cheered.
Mdm Zhao did not like Mdm Liu and Lu Ning, but she doted on Mdm Liu’s and Lu Dahua’s children.
In the past, when her legs were better, she would often bring some food over for them. Hence, Lu Jiang and Lu Xin liked Mdm Zhao a lot.
“I haven’t seen Grandma for a long time!”
Lu Jiang washed his face and his tender voice was filled with joy.
“Second Sister, let’s bring some potatoes and tomatoes for Grandma. She’ll definitely be very happy.”
Lu Sheng smiled and nodded. “I’ll take them later.”
When Lu Jiang heard that, he even ran into his room and took out the twenty coins that he had hidden with a cloth from the bedhead.
“Second Sister, hold this for me.”
This was the money Lu Sheng gave him to buy snacks. He had always kept it.
“What for?” Lu Sheng asked suspiciously.
“Aunt Lian said that Grandma’s legs are weak. This is for Grandma’s treatment.”
Then, he frowned. “I wonder if this is enough.”
Lu Sheng chuckled and patted his head. “Not bad. You’re quite filial.”
Lu Jiang grinned at her, revealing a row of white teeth. He was quite cute.
