Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder - Chapter 512
The Lucky Star Control Corporation in the 70s (10)
She wasn’t lying. They did have to go to university together, but this “together” was purely for reference. Song Yang’s family was indeed in the provincial capital. Wouldn’t it be okay for someone she knew to take care of her? It was just that in Grandma Chu’s ears, this rang a different tune. It simply meant that the two of them discussed going to live together in the provincial capital.
What kind of mess was this? Was she going to let Chu Lan marry the person Chu Xiang had previously been seeing? Grandma Chu opened her mouth to scold her, but when she caught a glimpse of the rabbit in the rabbit cage, she swallowed her censure again.
Her eldest granddaughter was indeed lucky. Grandma Chu was still quite superstitious. Seeing was believing. Her eldest granddaughter was getting more and more beautiful day by day. She didn’t know how many rabbits, wild eggs, and fish she would bring back, and how many good things she would add to the family in the future. What if Chu Lan would always be so lucky? Wouldn’t she be a bargain if married off to the Yin family? Going to the provincial capital bodes prospects, plus she could contribute to the family if she had a good life. Even if she didn’t give the family anything, she could look after Chu Xin. How could the sister not help him? On top of that, Song Yang’s family was in the provincial capital.
With these considerations in mind, Grandma Chu decided that it was the best way to give Chu Xiang to the Yin family to repay their kindness. In any case, Chu Xiang was disfigured. It was impossible for anyone who was foolish enough to marry a disfigured woman in exchange for a bride price. She couldn’t be of any help to the family at all, let alone help her younger brother. Chu Xiang and Chu Lan couldn’t compete at all.
After she came up with a decision, she waved her hand to let Chu Lan and her mother go back to the house. She took a basket, put six eggs in it, covered it with a cloth, and went out to Yin’s residence. When she met someone on the road and was asked, she smiled and said she was going to give Yin Xu some eggs to nourish his body. Sure enough, some people praised her. She mentioned how outstanding Yin Xu was, and how guilty her family was, driving others to think that the Chu family was indeed keen on repaying his favor.
Chu Xiang asked the Qiankun Mirror to follow Grandma Chu to the Yin’s residence while eating a bunch of melon seeds. She didn’t know much about the Yin family. She only knew that Yang Yuelan was in poor health and could not do farm work, and she had to take medicine every day. Yin Qiuwen and the original owner were in the same school, but not in the same class, but she seemed to be performing in her studies.
As for Yin Xu, he used to be a soldier, and then he was discharged. He took care of all the household chores and took good care of his mother and sister. Many young girls in the village liked him because he was tall, skilled, and brilliant. He seldom smiled, and his eyes seemed to be able to see through people, which was different from all the young men in the village. He was bursting with hormones, which was entirely attractive.
The original owner never paid attention to Yin Xu because she liked elegant scholars, so of course Chu Xiang didn’t understand Yin Xu’s situation. The picture she saw from the Qiankun Mirror was the first time she really saw him.
When Yin Xu heard Yang Yuelan and Grandma Chu arguing, he limped out leaning on a thick branch. Seeing this, Yang Yuelan hurried to help, “Oh, go back and lie down. How can you move around with your leg?”
Yin Xu took her by the shoulder and said, “I’m fine, Mom. Don’t worry. If you have something to discuss, take it slow and drink some water first.”
Yin Xu handed the bowl with water in his hand to Yang Yuelan, making her mother’s eyes red. Grandma Chu took a stool to Yin Xu in embarrassment, and said with a smile, “Sit down quickly. Don’t strain your legs. Yue Lan, your Yin Xu is really filial. He is such a good boy, and I like him. I really want him to be my grandson-in-law.”
Yang Yuelan returned angrily, “I respect you and call you Aunt, but what are you doing? At the beginning, it was you who approached me every day about tying the knot. Do you know how many girls like Yin Xu? What’s the matter now? Seeing that Yin Xu hurt his leg, you’re replacing his match? How can you do that? It said in the whole of the military unit that your Chu Xiang is disfigured. What do you mean by that?”
“Yue Lan, Chu Xiang is really a good girl, and she’s much more lovable than Chu Lan. I don’t mean anything else. Aren’t I letting Chu Xiang come directly to take care of Yin Xu without taking the exam? It’s a good thing to have a daughter-in-law to serve you and take care of her sister-in-law, right? Chu Lan is so focused on taking the exam. I can’t force her, and I can’t do anything about it either.”
“I never said that Chu Xiang is bad. What I’m saying is that your practice of replacing people is disgusting!”
Yin Xu patted his mother’s shoulder and said to Grandma Chu seriously, “Please go back. I never intended to agree to this marriage, so the Yin family and the Chu family will never tie the knot. It’s just a coincidence that I saved Grandpa Chu. I used to be a soldier, and it was impossible for me to turn a blind eye to someone at death’s door. My broken leg is my own misfortune, and it has nothing to do with Grandpa Chu. Let’s call it a day. We don’t need the Chu family to do anything and don’t want this marriage. My mother is unwell, so I won’t keep you here any longer.”
