Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 134
Your Grandma Loves Me Too Much (1)
When Jiang Xiaoman returned home, she was carrying bags of food on both her hands.
They were all full of meat.
There was the beef jerky that Yu Qingshi gave her, and the food that Yu Wencheng had packed for her. The bags were filled to the brim.
It was not that she was greedy, but Yu Wencheng was too enthusiastic and stuffed her with so much without saying a word. Only after stuffing her with food did he have someone send her home.
Jiang Xiumei had been eagerly waiting for her to come home. She had prepared a table of feast, with braised pork shoulders, steamed pork with dried vegetables and a lot of other meat dishes, all of which were usually only eaten during celebrations.
She was afraid that Xiaoman had abstained from eating meat for too long, so she prepared these with special effort.
Who would’ve known that when that little fella came back, she brought even more dishes than Jiang Xiumei had prepared.
Her complexion instantly became gloomy.
“Jiang Xiaoman!” She raised her voice, asking. “How have I been teaching you? Are you going to your good friend’s house to eat his food?”
This bad habit was unacceptable.
Yu Qingshi’s family was not simple. It was what you would call a major family back in the days.
But you couldn’t always go to his house to get stuff just because he was kind and approachable. Then what difference would it make between her and someone who was just looking for benefits?
There was a big gap between their families. Children don’t overthink things; the two could be good friends because their minds were pure and simple, but people who liked to gossip might be saying ugly things.
Jiang Xiumei didn’t want Xiaoman to climb any high branches. When the children played together and got along well, she did not have any ulterior motive. Her conscience was clear.
But if other people knew about this kind of behavior such as “taking advantage” of their family’s kindness, they might say something bad about Xiaoman.
Xiaoman was stunned for a bit, then she said in a low voice, “Grandma, don’t be angry. Uncle Yu actually wanted to give me even more, I already put back a lot secretly. I didn’t want it either, but Grandma hadn’t eaten any meat for days…”
Although she ate good food outside, she hadn’t forgotten about her Grandma. She was such a good girl, even Uncle Yu praised her!
Jiang Xiumei’s complexion eased a lot, but she still put on a long face and did not speak for a long time.
Xiaoman flattened her mouth, feeling a bit wronged. But she knew that Grandma would become angry, so she had already thought of ways to explain herself on the way back. When she spoke, her voice sounded a bit like she was on the verge of tears.
“Uncle Yu said that children who do not eat meat will not get enough nutrients. Their body will not grow bigger and their brain will not get enough nutrients to develop. They will not grow to be beautiful or smart. Uncle Yu also said that if the elderly do not eat meat, they will not get enough energy and would suffer from osteoporosis, and their eyes would dim. By not eating meat, they save a small amount of money but end up with serious health issues in the long term. It would be putting the cart before the horse. That is not a good thing.”
“…” Jiang Xiumei didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. She stared at her, “You really can talk, huh.”
Jiang Xiaoman was afraid that she would start beating her again, and continued loudly, “Wuu wuu wuu. Grandma, I’ll only eat it just this once, alright? I won’t dare to anymore. I won’t find Yu Qingshi to play anymore.”
She shed her tears while still holding the bags of food tightly in her hands.
The bags were heavy and left red marks on her hands, but she still wouldn’t let them go. She gave them to Jiang Xiumei while crying with much effort.
She looked really pitiful. So pitiful that it made Jiang Xiumei look like the bad guy.
After a while, she sighed and took the bags in her hands.
Seeing the red marks on her hand, Jiang Xiumei felt bad. She blew on Xiaoman’s hands and wiped her tears, saying quietly, “Xiaoman, Grandma is not prohibiting you from associating with Yu Qingshi, but you need to know the boundaries.”
It wasn’t clear if Jiang Xiaoman really understood or not; all she did was nod.
Jiang Xiumei continued, “Uncle Yu helped your Uncle a lot, and in return your Uncle also helped him. This way, the relationship between our families can last. Now that we have taken things from their family, we also have to give them something back. It’s not important if they’re not expensive, as long as the intent is delivered.”
This time, Jiang Xiaoman looked like she finally understood. She asked in a low voice, “Like with Teacher Tang?”
They give Teacher Tang gifts on New Year’s. Did she have to give Yu Qingshi a gift on New Year’s too?
But Yu Qingshi was not her mentor.
