Wang Shengnan was infertile. The reason why she’d agreed to marry into the Su family was that she wanted to have a decent marriage that wouldn’t prevent her from having fun and a ready-made son who would give her a pension in the future. The Su family happened to meet all her requirements.
So for Su Baorui, even if she knew that the child had his own thoughts, Wang Shengnan didn’t take them to heart. She took a two-pronged approach—on one hand, she was good to him, and on the other hand, she let him recognize the reality of the situation. With one release and one indulgence, Su Baorui was quickly subdued by Wang Shengnan.
The adult and the child each had their own minds, but they also slowly showed a little sincerity.
Wang Shengnan had long regarded Su Baorui as her property. Now, she was angry when she saw that Su Zhe, a jerk, dared to do something to one of hers.
Su Zhe was kicked to the ground. Tang Wenjing exclaimed and went to help him. Mr. Su and Madam Su worried about their son and wanted to go over, but after looking at Wang Shengnan and Su Baorui, they stopped, only to say crookedly, “If you have something to say, don’t use force! A-Zhe is weak—he can’t stand it!”
Wang Shengnan glared at them. “He’s an adult. If he can’t withstand a slap from me, how can A-Bao withstand a slap when he’s only a child?”
This rendered Mr. Su and Madam Su speechless. Staring at Su Zhe, Wang Shengnan said, “You too! Statrting a fight as soon as you come back! Bao’er is still young; is there anything you can’t teach well?”
Su Zhe slumped on the ground and stared at Wang Shengnan in a stunned manner. “You—you dare to hit me? Do you still know what the three obediences and four virtues are?”
[The three obediences and four virtues were a set of moral principles for women in ancient and imperial China. The three obediences are: women should be obedient to their father before marriage, obedient to their husband after marriage, and obedient to their son after the death of their husband. The four virtues are female virtue, female words, female appearance, and female work]
“Didn’t you call yourself a new era, new society, new youth? You wanted to abolish the dregs of the feudal era or something, and now you’re telling me about the three obediences and four virtues! What do you think this is called? It’s called double standards. You’re so hypocritical and selfish!” Wang Shengnan said angrily.
Su Zhe trembled in anger.
“What am I! I tell you, I am the master of this family! A-Bao is my son! What he does is not your affair to meddle with! If you dare to even touch my son’s hair, I will destroy you! The Su family has raised you as a waste for so many years, although I don’t care about continuing to raise you!” Wang Shengnan took Su Baorui’s hand with disdain on her face. “Son, go! Let your uncle send you to school. It’s not worth it for this kind of person to delay your studies!”
Su Baorui had deliberately asked for a day off because he’d known that Su Zhe would be coming back today.
Su Baorui nodded. “Grandpa and Grandma, I’m going to school. Goodbye, Grandpa and Grandma.”
Mr. Su and Madam Su nodded.
Wang Shengnan took Su Baorui’s hand and sent him out the gate.
Su Zhe looked at Mr. Su and Madam Su in disbelief. “Father, Mother, you just watched this shrew humiliate me like this?”
“Or else? Would you be able to talk to her or beat her?” Madam Su said with a sigh.
“I’m going to divorce her!” Su Zhe said angrily.
“No! Absolutely not!” Mr. Su said.
“Why?” Su Zhe asked.
“The Su family’s property is all in her hands. If you divorce her at this time, we’ll have nothing. By then, what will our family do for a living? Huh?” Mr. Su said.
“How could it be?”
“Isn’t it because you’re useless?! When I found out, it was done, and I couldn’t do anything about it. Fortunately, Shengnan doesn’t plan to leave the Su family. She said that when she died, she’d be the daughter-in-law of the Su family. She also promised that when Bao’er was eighteen years old, all the properties of the Su family would be handed over to him. Your mother and I are getting old, and you’re like this again; what else can we do? It can only be like this. Stay calm in the future! Don’t mess with her! Although you live in a house and not a yard, it’s good to be safe and sound!” Mr. Su looked helpless.
Although Wang Shengnan was a little arrogant and a little bit aggressive, and her private life was a bit chaotic, hadn’t Mr. Su’s own son been married three times? It was said that now was a new society, and there should be equality between men and women, right?
Mr. Su had been completely tamed by Wang Shengnan!
At the very least, Wang Shengnan, their daughter-in-law, was very good to the old couple and Bao’er. The old couple lived in the best courtyard, and their necessities were the best. Especially since she was so good to Bao’er! Wasn’t the lifetime they’d lived for the sake of their children and grandchildren?
Madam Su also nodded in agreement.
Su Zhe didn’t expect his parents to say this, so he immediately fainted. Tang Wenjing burst into tears.
Mr. Su and Madam Su hurriedly asked for a doctor.
After Wang Shengnan heard about it, she rolled her eyes. Useless trash! Then someone went out and asked for a doctor. She also warned, “Don’t invite foreign doctors. It’s too expensive!”
After the doctor came, he prescribed a few medicines and left.
Su Zhe and Tang Wenjing simply lived in the old house of the Su family.
The days in his hometown were quiet and comfortable. If he had nothing to do, he’d just read books, read newspapers, stroll in the garden with Wenjing, and talk about the past and present. There was no worldly prejudice and no hypocritical human relationships. Except for the occasional meeting with Wang Shengnan that made him a little unhappy, Su Zhe thought that he was already in paradise.
On this day, Su Zhe wanted to take Tang Wenjing to go hiking on a whim. As a result, when he was dressed neatly and had asked the housekeeper to prepare the car, the housekeeper said, “Young master, the second madam has instructed that during this time, you should not go out. You can check your son’s homework or talk to the master and madam.”
“Absurd. This is my home. Do I need her permission to go in and out?” Su Zhe said angrily.
“This is the rule set by the second madam. If you want to go out, you must report to the second madam. She went to the shop to check the accounts, and she can’t come back until the afternoon. You had better discuss it with the second madam!” the housekeeper said.
Su Zhe was so angry that his hand was shaking as he pointed at the housekeeper.
When Madam Su heard the news, she came and took Su Zhe away.
“Shengnan is also doing this for your own good!”
“She’s restricting my freedom! Why does she do this?! I’m not a prisoner!” Su Zhe said angrily.
“Do you think you have a good reputation in Qingxi? The story of your kidnapping a young girl has long spread across the streets and alleys of Qingxi. If you go out now, someone will throw rotten eggs at you!” Madam Su said. She glanced at Tang Wenjing angrily. In her opinion, her son was not wrong; the blame should be on Tang Wenjing.
Tang Wenjing aggrievedly lowered her head.
Su Zhe had always been very sensitive to women’s emotions, especially to those of Tang Wenjing, who was his heart now. He immediately noticed Tang Wenjing’s mood swing, and he immediately broke away from Madam Su’s hand to hug Tang Wenjing in his arms.
“Mother! Wenjing and I are true loves. Don’t look at us from a worldly perspective?” Su Zhe said righteously.
Madam Su glanced at them “You said the same a few times before. Each true love of yours doesn’t last long! A-Zhe, it’s not just your mother nagging you—you can’t do this!”
Madam Su’s simple words made Tang Wenjing’s face even paler. She recalled Su Zhe’s previous marriages.
Su Zhe felt distressed when he saw her like this, but he couldn’t guarantee anything. After all, the future was uncontrollable. “Wenjing, believe me. I love you at this moment, only you! As for the future, I can’t guarantee it; after all, no one knows what will happen in the future.”
Tang Wenjing heard this and broke free from Su Zhe’s embrace, running away.
Su Zhe hurriedly chased after her.
The outing ended, just like that.
Seeing this, Madam Su shook her head. “Shengnan is right.” Her son was a prodigal son with love on the brain.
In the afternoon, when Wang Shengnan came back, she heard people talking. They were saying that Miss Tang had still locked herself in her room, not eating, refusing to see anyone.
Wang Shengnan shook her head. “She’s also a poor woman.”
Wang Shengnan went to Tang Wenjing’s room. Su Zhe stood at the door, expressing his heart and soul in a long speech at the door.
Wang Shengnan listened for a while, but she couldn’t listen anymore. “Do you know what she wants?”
Su Zhe saw her and was instinctively disgusted. “What are you doing here?”
“I’ll help you solve the problem!” Wang Shengnan looked at Su Zhe with a look that someone would give a pile of trash, passed over him, and walked to the door. “Open the door!”
Su Zhe looked dismissive, but what surprised him was that, in the next second, Tang Wenjing actually opened the door.
Wang Shengnan looked at the little girl whose eyes were red from crying, and her heart softened a bit. This Su Zhe really was a bastard and not a human being—he’d even provoked such a little girl!
“Alright, don’t cry. I’ll have someone organize a wedding for you right away! With me here, you’ll always be the first madam of the Su family!” Wang Shengnan said.
Tang Wenjing immediately stopped crying.
Su Zhe was stunned.
Wang Shengnan settled the matter, turned around, and left. She was very busy and had no time to pay attention to these little things of love.
The rest of Su Zhe looked at Tang Wenjing with an indescribable expression on his face. It turned out that Wenjing had been unhappy these days because of this? Why hadn’t she spoken up?
A month later, Su Zhe and Tang Wenjing got married. Of course, the marriage was not a grand affair, but Wang Shengnan did it very well. She even sent a telegram to Tang Zhiwei that explained the matter. Although Tang Zhiwei did not return the telegram, someone sent something a month later.
As soon as Wang Shengnan saw it, she knew that this was the dowry prepared by the Tang family for Tang Wenjing. She had someone deliver the things to Tang Wenjing.
At the same time, Li Huairou, who was far away on the other side of the ocean, also received a thick letter.
Li Huairou opened it and looked at it. Then she smiled and leaned back. Wang Shengnan was really amazing. In this life, Su Zhe would never be able to escape from her palm! He couldn’t go out and harm other girls anymore. Although this way was unfair to Wang Shengnan, that wasn’t what Wang Shengnan cared about. All she needed was an identity and a platform. After all, this society had too many constraints on women. They also got what they wanted.
“What are you laughing at?” Mei Xianglan came in suddenly. Seeing Li Huairou smiling like this—was it because she saw Qi Jun’s confessing to her and falling down because of nervousness?
“See for yourself!” Li Huairou handed the letter to Mei Xianglan.
Mei Xianglan took it, and after reading it, she smiled. “This is good!” She’d never hated the Su family, nor did she hate Su Zhe.
“Huairou, I have something I want to discuss with you!” Mei Xianglan said after hesitating for a long time. Perhaps knowing the current situation of the Su family made her let go of the obsession in her heart and begin to seriously consider the next relationship.
“What’s the matter? Say it.” Li Huairou sat up straight.
“I…” Mei Xianglan hesitated to tell Li Huairou about Qi Jun’s confession to her. “I was very confused at the time. I didn’t agree, I just said that I’d think about it.”
