Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 114
The word ‘grandma’ was completely unfamiliar to Lu Sheng.
It could be said that she had no other relatives in her previous life besides her master.
Hence, when she heard Mdm Zhao say “my Ah Sheng”, she teared up immediately.
Lu Sheng half-squatted and smiled at her.
“Why is Ah Sheng here?”
Mdm Zhao wiped her tears and forced a smile.
Lu Sheng’s heart ached when she saw this.
“I came because I missed you.”
She stood up and was about to ask He Qin about today when she heard an old man’s voice from outside.
“Does the Zhang family really think that there’s no one else in the He family? We’ve only been away for two days and they’re already bullying us? How dare they!”
Lu Sheng looked over curiously and saw an old lady wearing a hemp garment and a bamboo hat walking in.
A stern-looking man followed the old lady. He was carrying some items.
It seemed like the two of them had rushed over immediately after returning to the village.
Lu Sheng lowered her head and contemplated for a while. Then, she remembered that these two people were her granny and her uncle.
He Qin greeted them guiltily.
“You’re so tall for nothing. Why did you get beaten up like this?”
When Mdm Xu saw his face, she became angry.
“Aunt, that Zhang Hui is not any better.”
Someone reminded her.
When Mdm Xu heard that, her expression eased a little.
Grandma seemed to be a bit afraid of Mdm Xu. When she saw her enter, she lowered her head and did not dare to speak anymore.
Lu Sheng found it funny.
In her impression, this granny was very powerful. Many people in the village were afraid of her, but she took special care of her grandma’s family.
“What did I say back then? I said that that family was not easy to deal with. However, you were too obsessed with them to listen to me. You said that Ah Qin is not young anymore and it was not easy for a girl to be willing to marry him. So, you went to the Zhang family to get engaged.”
Mdm Xu dragged a chair over and sat down. Exasperated at one’s failure to make good, she continued saying, “How is it now? She came here to abuse her authority and act so self-righteously.”
After scolding the two of them, she said angrily, “How dare the Zhang family ask for ten taels or twenty taels? Do they really think money comes from nowhere? Is that ugly daughter of theirs worth twenty taels? She’s just a good that people would think twice about even if she cost one copper coin.”
The people at the side found it funny, but they did not dare to laugh. They could only cover their mouths and secretly laugh.
Mdm Zhao stole a glance at Mdm Xu and did not dare to speak.
He Qin lowered his head and did not dare to retort.
Zhang Xiaohua was indeed lazy and looked mediocre. His mother had been tricked by Zhang Xiaohua’s mother, Mdm Luo, into agreeing to this marriage.
He did not want to marry her to begin with. However, when he thought of his old age and poor family background, he felt embarrassed to find a good girl as he didn’t want to harm her.
He wanted to lead a carefree life. Who knew that these things would happen?
It was only then that Mdm Xu realized that Lu Sheng was standing beside Mdm Zhao.
“You are… Lu Sheng?”
Lu Sheng looked extremely similar to Mdm He. Thus, even though it had been a long time since they last met, Mdm Xu could still guess that she was Lu Sheng.
Lu Sheng greeted her obediently.
“When did you come? Oh, were you frightened?”
When Mdm Xu thought of her loud voice earlier, she felt a bit embarrassed.
Lu Sheng chuckled. “No!”
“That’s good!” She stood up and pulled Lu Sheng over to take a look. She could not help but praise her. “Oh, you’re becoming more good-looking.”
