Before Ning Meng Yao arrived, Madame Chen’s family was the richest family in the village. Everyone were envious of her. They all knew that she had two very good sons. One could earn money for the family and another was a scholar. Even her daughter had many people liking and admiring her.
However, after Ning Meng Yao settled here, everything changed. The status of their family gradually declined in the village, and then her daughter’s reputation was destroyed. Now she was even treated like this, and the villagers were almost on the verge of kicked her out of the village too.
Yang Zhu looked at Madame Chen’s face which displayed deep disbelief and said quietly: “I know what you’re thinking. You think that we’re selfish, but aren’t you selfish too? Meng Yao is giving an opportunity to the villagers to make good money right next to their homes, allowing every household to live their everyday lives well. Don’t you think that your actions would cause Meng Yao to be disappointed with our village?”
“Exactly. Everyone is envious of our village now. If you and your family try to trouble her again, I really hope that your family will move out of here. After all, your family is wealthy too. It shouldn’t be difficult for you to buy a yard at the county.”
Madame Chen was furious at the people who were blaming her family.
“Madame Chen, White Mountain Village doesn’t need your family to survive. Without you, we’ll still be able to live our lives normally.” Yang Zhu sighed: “Don’t even try to say that I’m biased against you because of Meng Yao. If it wasn’t for your family which repeatedly tried to make trouble for her, the outcome wouldn’t be like it is right now.”
Madame Chen was so furious that she almost bit her tongue off. Initially, she had thought that she would be able to tarnish Ning Meng Yao’s reputation this time, but who knew that the outcome would be the opposite instead. She didn’t expect the outcome to turn out like this at all.
Looking at Madame Chen’s angry expression, Yang Zhu continued helplessly: “We’ll not pursue the issue this time, but if you continue to behave like this, our village will not tolerate you and your family anymore.”
The villagers were very motivated now. In order to make their daily lives better, every family was working hard. Therefore, they would never allow such people to destroy their welfare.
This village might become the richest village among the other nearby villages in the future, so he definitely wouldn’t let Madame Chen ruin it.
At this moment, Ning Meng Yao spoke in a timely manner: “I’m fine, everyone. Yang Cui had already been kicked by my servant. Let’s just move on and leave this matter behind. However, I don’t want them to trouble me anymore in the future.”
Upon hearing this, everyone felt that Ning Meng Yao was really the big hearted person. She actually let Yang Cui off just like this.
Everyone was thinking that Ning Meng Yao was generous and had a good heart. If only they knew that this one kick from Qing Xuan would be enough to make Yang Cui lie in bed for a month before she could get up.
Otherwise, Ning Meng Yao wouldn’t have let her off so easily.
In the end, Madame Chen had no other choice. The anger in her was burning strongly, but she had to thank Ning Meng Yao for letting her daughter off. The feeling she had was even harder than swallowing flies.
After the mother and daughter left, Yang Zhu told the crowd to disperse. Then, he walked to Ning Meng Yao’s side, and watched her in worry: “Meng Yao, are you all right?”
“Uncle Yang, don’t worry. I’m fine.”
“Girl, you.. . Oh, that’s right, Meng Yao, I have a favor to ask from you.” Yang Zhu asked while being a little embarrassed.
“Tell me, Uncle Yang.”
Yang Zhu shook his head helplessly: “It’s about Le Le. Her mother and I will not stop her from doing what she wants to do. It’s just that we hope that she could come back home earlier. After all, she’s not very young anymore.”
Ning Meng Yao immediately understood. She looked at Yang Zhu and chuckled: “Don’t you worry, Uncle Yang. I understand what you mean. Le Le is a good girl, so naturally, I wouldn’t joke about her happiness.”
She also hoped that Yang Le Le could be happy, so she already had her own ideas.
Yang Zhu looked at Ning Meng Yao, his face a little red from embarrassment: “Meng Yao, I…”
“Don’t worry, I understand. Next year. After Le Le will finish her studies next year, I’ll ask her to come back and do her things in the county.” This way Le Le could come home often, and her parents could visit her if they missed her.
Upon hearing this, Yang Zhu was very grateful: “Meng Yao, thank you so much.”
“Don’t worry about it.”
Yang Zhu chatted with Ning Meng Yao for a while before leaving.
After Yang Zhu left, a faint smile spread onto Ning Meng Yao’s face. A life with a little dispute from time to time isn’t so bad.
Having such thoughts, Ning Meng Yao shook her head and smiled again. She picked up the needle with a thread from the embroidery basket and continued to sew the clothes. If anyone would witness this scene now, one would see a bright smile on her face.
