Chapter 19 - Visit
Mother Li entered the room and soon came out holding a handkerchief tightly in her hands.
She handed it reluctantly as her hands tremble, showing the extent of her heartache.
Zhang Tieshan pulled the handkerchief over and opened it.
He found a few pieces of silver.
Counting it, it was at most twelve or thirteen taels but not fifteen taels.
Mother Li took the initiative to explain, "We really don't have that much money in the family.
This is all the money Tieshan.
Considering that we were once in-laws, let's end this matter."
Zhang Tieshan did not speak.
After taking the money into his arms, he said, "Fine, since the money is not enough, we will take the furniture for it.
Qingshan, Xiao Er, smash it for me!"
Zhang Qingshan and Lou Er receive the order.
They immediately went and get the hoe and began to smash furniture.
The sound of smashing sounded throughout the house, attracting many people in the village to come and watch.
"Zhang Teishan, what are you doing! Stop it! Didn't you just say that it is okay" Mother Li shouted unbearably.
Li Changfu's wife followed and the exclaimed, "Ah-- stop it! You guys--stop it---"
Seeing that the two of them continue to smash, Li Changfu's eyes turned red with anger.
" You guys are deceiving people!" He then went to hit Zhang Qingshan who was smashing things.
Li Changshou also followed him and went to stop Lou Er.
Seeing this, Zhang Teishan raised his legs to kicked people.
Li Changfu and Li Changshou, who were about to beat people, were kicked to the ground.
Seeing all the things were smashed and her sons also got beaten, Mother Li sat on the ground and began to cry as she beat the ground, "I'm so miserable, the Zhang family is deceiving people so much.
My daughter was already divorced but he went to our door to rob our money.
After robbing, he went and smash our things.
You guys judge this, isn't so unreasonable Wuuuuuuu." She cried and ask the villagers to judge them, but unfortunately, the villagers knew the virtues of the Li family and no one came out to side with them.
All the things inside the house were almost smashed while the two women were crying.
Zhang Tieshan raised his hand to stop people and said, "This is the price that you have to pay for bullying my family in my absence.
Find me if you are not convince." After speaking, he took Zhang Qingshan and Lou Er out of the Li family's house.
The villagers who were watching by the door automatically gave way and just watched as the three people leave the village.
On the way home, Zhang Qingshan was overjoyed.
"Ge, I'm relieved now.
Look at the cowardice of the Li family.
They were very arrogant before."
Zhang Tieshan didn't speak and there was no expression on his face.
Zhang Qingshan was still talking happily and said to himself, "It's fine now, the money was returned and our family will have money to spare.
We can buy everything that we are lacking at home.
Ge, I also want to eat meat.
I want to eat some braised pork.
What that woman made last time was really delicious---"
After saying this, Zhang Qingshan suddenly realized what he had just said.
He patted his head in contempt and subconsciously looked at his brother's face.
Seeing that his brother didn't look angry when he mentioned that woman, he breath a sigh of relief and said, "Ge, did you hear what the Li family just said That woman went back to her maiden's family but was kicked out.
Really, evil people will face their retribution.
Even her own family isn't willing to take her in.
Let's see what she will do now."
Zhang Tieshan eye's flickered and his lips pursed slightly.
Li Hehua didn't know what happened in the Li family and was currently sitting with Cao Simei's family for lunch.
She cooked a table of dishes today.
Looking at the fragrant dishes on the table, the family was overjoyed and their eyes lit up.
Although it is said that farmers rarely eats meant, it is not to the point that they are greedy when they see meat.
The reason why their eyes glow is because this meal is different from usual and the fragrance is overwhelming.
Cao Simei took Li Hehua's hand and thanked her, " Da meizi ah, jie jie thanked you.
Today's meal is already delicious without even eating it."
Li Hehua immediately waved her hand, " Why thank me da jie It should be me who should thank you.
If it wasn't for your family letting me stay, I wouldn't even have a place to live here."
Cao Simei smiled and clapped her hands, "Okay, okay.
No more thank yous.
Let's eat quickly, everyone is hungry."
Hearing that they could eat, everyone was very excited.
The children could wait and immediately picked up their chopsticks.
Even Cao Simei's husband was also in a hurry stretching his chopsticks like a child.
Cao Simei's eldest son was the first one to swallow the meat in his mouth.
He gave Li Hehua a thumbs up and said, "Aunt Li (Li Yi), the food is so delicious, your cooking is really great! I've never had such delicious dishes before."
Cao Simei's eldest daughter also looked at Li Hehua with bright eyes, " Aunt Li, it is no wonder why you can prepare a banquet.
The dishes that you cook are so delicious.
My brother used to catch some fishes in the river, but the fish cooked by mother smells fishy.
Everyone doesn't like it."
The children in the house nodded in agreement and even He Da showed his approval.
Cao Simei glared at him and pretend to be angry, "Fine, you guys have no conscience.
I cooked for you everyday but you guys still dared to dislike my cooking!"
Everyone at the table laughed.
Cao Simei's youngest son is only eight years old and was very active.
He is not afraid of Cao Simei and retored, "Mother, your cooking is really different from Aunt Li.
She can make fish so delicious.
You should learn from her so that the next time da ge and I go fishing, we will be able to eat such delicious fish every day."
Cao Simei nudged at her younger son's head and said angrily, "Do you think you can learn just from watching One also needs to have a talent in cooking, otherwise anyone can be a chef."
The youngest son pouted in disappointment.
Li Hehua smile and said, "Da jie, you already saw me cooking the fish so learn from it.
Make it a few more times and it will become delicious.
It is not that difficult.
If you don't understand something, just ask me."
Hearing that, Cao Simei was very happy.
"Da meizi, jie jie will thank you first.
If I really can't, I'll ask you to teach me then." She is also eager to make delicious dishes.
