However, Madam Su gradually discovered that the things that made her more desperate were still to come.
She didn’t know when, but Wang Shengnan’s cousin started to show up, and he came and went around Wang Shengnan often. After he came and went, some gossip broke out.
Madam Su found Wang Shengnan and wanted her to be cautious in her words and deeds, so as not to lose the Su family’s reputation.
But she was dismissed by Wang Shengnan with a few words: “If you say that, I won’t go to the shop in the future. I’ll be able to stay at home with peace of mind! Perhaps we should call my husband back and let him do it?”
Madam Su stopped talking.
Wang Shengnan became more brazen, and her cousin also started to freely come and go at the Su house.
Madam Su could only call Su Zhe. Although Su Zhe was angry, he refused to come back no matter what. He only said that Madam Su should take the shot and drive that *** out again.
But how could Madam Su have the ability to do that?
It didn’t take long for Su Zhe to be short on money. Jiang Lina was a movie star; after marrying Su Zhe, she stopped acting. Every day, she danced at home, played mahjong, went shopping, and bought things.
Su Zhe’s salary was not enough for her to cover the losses from mahjong.
There was no other way. Su Zhe had to call back and ask Madam Su for money.
But the Su family’s money was in Wang Shengnan’s hands, and Wang Shengnan refused to give it. Madam Su was crying and making trouble, and it was very frustrating. But Wang Shengnan’s heart was as hard as iron—she didn’t let go. Instead, she caused such utter confusion as to make everybody in the family become nervous. In the end, Madam Su had no choice but to secretly pawn her jewelry or other things behind Wang Shengnan’s back and go to help Su Zhe.
It didn’t take long for a maid to come bearing a message.
Wang Shengnan made a big fuss at the Su family because of this, saying that Madam Su was deliberately smearing her! People were mistakenly thinking that she was a vicious daughter-in-law who forced her mother-in-law to live on by selling jewelry.
In front of the relatives and friends who’d come to persuade her to make peace, Wang Shengnan threw out the ledger of Su Zhe’s expenses over the years.
“Look, everyone. Su Zhe, a teacher, a professor, such a learned person, is still reaching out to his family to get money. Over the years, the money his family gave him could make several gold statues as big as him! Other people can already manage the household and provide for their family. How good our family is—even if you don’t give a penny, you can still find your family to get money! I’ve never seen such a worthless person!” Wang Shengnan said loudly, not afraid of embarrassment.
Madam Su had regrets. She did not expect that Wang Shengnan would be so unreasonable. What was wrong with subsidizing her son? He was in Peiping. As the old saying goes, it isn’t easy to live in the imperial capital. Peiping was the same.
When others saw the ledger, they couldn’t help but click their tongues. So was this Madam Su’s promising son? With this comparison, although their own boys were not very promising, it wasn’t bad for them to just be able to support their own families!
After this incident, Su Zhe lost all face in his hometown, Qingxi.
Without the financial support from his family, Su Zhe soon couldn’t support himself anymore. He called his home several times to ask for money, but he was hung up on before he said a few words. He called again, and the person who answered the phone was Wang Shengnan. As soon as he heard Wang Shengnan’s voice, Su Zhe remembered that night of extreme humiliation. Coupled with the gossip that his mother had told him, he was particularly disgusted with Wang Shengnan, and he didn’t want to hear her voice at all.
He simply stopped calling home.
Su Zhe was complaining about what his parents were thinking. Why didn’t they just get rid of that ***?! She’d let the reputation of the Su family be damaged and made him look bad!
Today, he could only be glad that Qingxi was far away from Peiping and the matter of his hometown could not be spread here! Otherwise, he was really shameless.
In order to make money, he started hustling around. But Jiang Lina was not satisfied. In addition to being a woman who wanted to enjoy herself, she was also a woman who needed love all the time. Now Su Zhe was running around for life, leaving her alone at home and lonely.
Not long after, Jiang Lina met a man at a dance hall. He was handsome, warm, and romantic. Jiang Lina fell in love with him at first sight, and it didn’t take long for them to openly go out and live together.
When Su Zhe came back after giving a speech, he dragged his tired body back home, and then he witnessed an unsightly scene.
Jiang Lina and the man were unhurried, and they dressed slowly.
Jiang Lina was wearing pajamas, and she lit a cigarette. “Since you’ve seen it all, I have nothing to hide. Let me introduce you to Wei Geng. I’m in love with him. Let’s get a divorce!”
Su Zhe dared not believe his own eyes. “Lina, have you forgotten our wedding vows? How can you betray our vows?”
“Su Zhe, you said it yourself. True love is innocent; this is just a brave pursuit of true love! Just let me go. We got together and will break up peacefully—it isn’t for nothing that we loved each other.” Jiang Lina looked innocent.
Su Zhe was so angry that he wanted to vomit blood.
Su Zhe was embarrassed and wanted to recover this relationship, but Jiang Lina was determined.
And Su Zhe learned from his friends that during his absence, Jiang Lina and the man named Wei Geng had openly gone in and out of the house, living in the same room, without any scruples.
Only then did Su Zhe realize that the green hat on his head was already well-known.
[A sign that a man’s wife or girlfriend has cheated on him]
Su Zhe got divorced in anger, and Jiang Lina was eager to get rid of Su Zhe and stay with Wei Geng, so the two divorced happily and without too much conflict in the property department.
This was Su Zhe’s third marriage, which had once again ended in failure in this way. Su Zhe felt that he’d lost his prestige, and he was ashamed to meet people. He wanted to start over in a different environment. It happened that a friend of his in the south kindly invited him over.
So he took a leave of absence from the school and went to the south.
As a result, in Guangzhou, Su Zhe met his goddess again—Tang Wenjing, the fourteen-year-old sister of his friend, Tang Zhiwei. The first time they met, Su Zhe noticed the love in the girl’s eyes.
Tang Wenjing used her enthusiasm and love to make Su Zhe, who was hurt and betrayed, rekindle his yearning for love again.
The two started dating, right under Tang Zhiwei’s nose.
This relationship gave Su Zhe a new burst of vitality and a lot of inspiration. He wrote many poems praising love and published them in the newspapers.
This made Tang Zhiwei come to a realization.
Tang Zhiwei finally found out about the relationship between his friend and his sister. He was very angry. He’d invited his friend to Guangzhou to relax, but his friend had seduced his sister! His sister was only fourteen! She was still studying! This was unacceptable!
Tang Zhiwei broke off all contact with Su Zhe on the spot and took his sister home to take care of her, preventing her from contacting Su Zhe again.
But how could someone who was in love give up so easily?
On a dark and windy night that month, Tang Wenjing snuck out of the house, found Su Zhe, and asked him to take her away.
Su Zhe had begun to deny his feelings for this relationship because of the opposition and rebukes of his friends. After all, he was fourteen years older than Wenjing, and he’d already been married three times. Wenjing was so pure and beautiful; he really didn’t deserve her.
But facing Tang Wenjing’s sincere and brave love, Su Zhe was moved again.
In the end, Su Zhe followed his true heart and took Tang Wenjing back to Peiping by overnight train.
After Tang Zhiwei learned about it, he was furious and chased them to Peiping. He wanted to take Tang Wenjing away, but Tang Wenjing refused. Tang Zhiwei angrily scolded Su Zhe in front of all the teachers and students of the school, saying that, under the guise of love, he’d kidnapped a young girl and deceived a friend, which was unbearable!
It was a big deal, and it was published in the newspapers.
For a time, Su Zhe was notorious, and it was common for people to point at him behind his back, and they even insulted Su Zhe in front of him.
The school was also under pressure, and it expelled Su Zhe.
Su Zhe had no choice but to sell his real estate in Peiping and quietly return home with Tang Wenjing.
After Wang Shengnan learned about these things, she was also very disdainful of Su Zhe. Especially after seeing Tang Wenjing, she was extremely disdainful of Su Zhe.
“Su Zhe, I used to think you were selfish trash, but now I know that you’re still a beast! No, you’re not even a beast—you’re old enough to be her father, so you can get the job done. Go away! Are you still human?” Wang Shengnan’s face was full of contempt.
“What do you know?!” Su Zhe said with a red face.
“Don’t discuss the big truth with me. What true love, what bravery? In my opinion, you are a despicable villain who forgets his righteousness! I’m too lazy to talk nonsense with you!” Wang Shengnan rolled her eyes. “Fine, since I’ve come back now, just stay at home and don’t go out to be shamed.”
Wang Shengnan glanced at the two of them with disgust, left that sentence, turned around, and left.
Tang Wenjing’s eyes showed an injured look. Su Zhe saw it and felt distressed. “Don’t cry. I’ll take you to meet my father and mother.”
The Su family, including Mr. Su, Madam Su, and the child Bao’er—named Su Baorui—were there. They’d long been tamed by Wang Shengnan. Especially after the incident between Su Zhe and Tang Wenjing, Wang Shengnan would insult Su Zhe at home almost every day for being shameless and shameful. At this time, the Su family did not dare to say a word.
Seeing that Su Zhe was back, Mr. Su and Madam Su were happy.
But when Su Zhe proposed to divorce Wang Shengnan and let the family live a good life in the future—
Mr. Su, Madam Su, and even Su Baorui had the look “you are crazy”.
Mr. Su and Madam Su were more polite for fear of hurting their son’s self-esteem, but the child had no scruples when he spoke. “Father, if you want to divorce mother, who will take care of this family? Does father know how to manage the family? Will my father make money?”
Su Zhe flushed. “What nonsense are you talking about!”
“I’m not talking nonsense. Does father know how much rice is in a pound? Does father know how much one egg is? Does father know how much our family spends every month? Has father paid a penny to the household?” Su Baorui said loudly, “Father doesn’t know anything and can’t support himself, so how can my father support the family? And you want to drive away mother! What did mother do wrong?”
“Don’t call her mother. She is not your mother!” Su Zhe became angry.
“When I’m sick, she buys me medicine from a doctor, and when I study, she asks for a teacher and pays my tuition! She’s my mother!” Su Baorui was a very realistic child—whoever treated him well would be his mother. Besides, he had already seen that this family was already headed by Wang Shengnan. Whether his father came back would not change this fact.
Su Zhe was so angry that he reached out his hand to fight.
Before Madam Su could protect him, she saw that Su Zhe’s hand was about to hit Su Baorui in the face. Wang Shengnan arrived in time, knocked Su Zhe to the ground with a single kick, pulled Su Baorui behind her, pointed at Su Zhe, and cursed angrily, “You dare to hit my son! Just try another hit!”
