Transmigrating to the 80s to Become Stepmom to Five Bigwigs - Chapter 188
Chapter 188: How Dare You, Your Second Brother’s Corpse Hasn’t Even Turned Cold
After a year, Eldest Brother Shao had once again experienced the effect of Mu Jingzhe’s vicious tongue. For a moment, he recalled his earlier painful experience. Besides, this time, it was in front of so many people.
Sensing everyone’s gazes, Eldest Brother Shao wished he could kill Mu Jingzhe right now.
“Mu Jingzhe, you… How can you say that about me… I’m upright and I am afraid of nothing. I didn’t do anything wrong. Why should I be afraid of Second Brother? If you keep spouting nonsense, I…” He was trembling from rage as if he couldn’t speak.
Zhao Lan’s heart ached when she saw this. “Mu Jingzhe, did you hear that? My eldest son didn’t do anything wrong. If you have anything to say, come at me. Don’t spout nonsense!”
“Did she say something wrong? Isn’t everything she said true?” Shao Qiyang couldn’t help but interject.
“Shao Qiyang, you unfilial son!” Zhao Lan was furious.
“Third Brother, Mom gave birth to you and raised you. Eldest Brother became lame from working to support the family. Can’t you see that? How can you treat Mom and Brother like this?” Shao Qiyun fanned the flames from the side.
Shao Qiyang glared at Shao Qiyun. “Shut up, Shao Qiyun. You make it sound so nice. Why don’t I see you repay Eldest Brother, huh? How well has Second Brother treated you? How much money did Second Brother spend on you? Why didn’t you treat his five kids better?”
“Never mind treating the five kids better. Every time you come back, nothing good comes out of it. When there are benefits to be had, you egg everyone on to come and cause trouble. Aren’t you afraid that Second Brother will look for you at night and ask you those questions?”
The depths of Shao Qiyun’s eyes changed slightly, but she quickly calmed down. “Aren’t I here to take them back and raise them? Like Big Brother said, we’ve never done anything that went against our conscience and aren’t afraid of ghosts or gods.”
“Are you taking them back to raise them? You’re here because you have something to gain!”
“Then what do you want us to do? Third Brother, you criticized me when I didn’t care about Shao Dong and his siblings. Now that I want to help them, you’re also making a fuss?”
“You know what this is about. Everyone knows it too. Get out now!”
Shao Qiyun looked at Mu Jingzhe and curled her lips. “Brother, are you falling out with us because of Mu Jingzhe?”
Shao Qiyang’s expression changed slightly, and Zhao Lan immediately threw a tantrum. “Shao Qiyang, I knew that vixen Mu Jingzhe seduced you. Have you guys hooked up behind our backs? I was wondering why Mu Jingzhe didn’t go back to her maiden home and you stopped acknowledging me as your mother. So it was because you two have already hooked up. I should have guessed it long ago. You… You adulterous couple!”
Zhao Lan burst into tears. “Shao Qiyang, how can you let your second brother down by doing this? His corpse hasn’t even turned cold, yet you already hooked up with Mu Jingzhe.”
Zhao Lan scolded him and cried as she hit Shao Qiyang without rhyme or reason. “You did this for a woman, and your sister-in-law at that! You disowned your mother and even hit your biological sister. Aren’t you afraid that your older brother will crawl out of his grave to look for you? I’ll beat you to death today, you adulterous couple!”
Shao Qiyang avoided Zhao Lan. When he saw everyone’s expressions change, his heart sank to the bottom of his chest. This was why he had been hesitating and had been unable to muster up the courage to say anything.
The courage that he’d finally mustered up had been completely destroyed by Zhao Lan.
This was a taboo in the village. If one had a relationship with one’s younger brother-in-law or sister-in-law, they would be drowned in other people’s saliva.
“Don’t talk nonsense!” Shao Qiyang didn’t dare look at Mu Jingzhe. He’d only said that when his body had already been hit a few times and his face was scratched.
Shao Dong and his siblings were very grateful to their young uncle. When they saw Shao Qiyang being beaten up and their mother being scolded, they couldn’t help but go up to Zhao Lan and stop her. “You’re not allowed to hit Uncle. You’re not allowed to scold Mommy!”
As soon as Shao Dong finished speaking, Zhao Lan waved him away. “Get out of the way!”
Upon seeing Shao Dong pushed to the ground, Mu Jingzhe panicked. “Little Dong!”
Shao Qiyang’s expression changed. He grabbed Zhao Lan’s hand and glared at her with red eyes. “Enough!”
He flung Zhao Lan away fiercely. “I really want to ask you something: Are Second Brother and I your biological sons? How can you treat us like this? And Shao Dong is your biological grandson. How can you hit him?”
Zhao Lan stood there awkwardly before she sat down and started wailing. “Shao Qiyang, you have the nerve to ask me this? Do you even regard me as your mother? What kind of son would hit his mother!”
As for whether Shao Dong was her biological grandson, Zhao Lan couldn’t even be bothered to answer. So what if he was her biological grandson? Did she lack grandsons? This was a grandson with the bloodline of that dead woman, Bai Lu, and he had also been taught badly by Mu Jingzhe. These children were dirty in her eyes. Besides, there was even a mute grandson amongst them!
Zhao Lan slapped her thigh and started wailing. “Look at my good son. First, he disowned me because of Mu Jingzhe. Today, he even hit me because of Mu Jingzhe. My son was seduced by her into hitting me. My grandson was led astray by her and now wants to kill me. What kind of sin have I committed? No matter what, I must kick Mu Jingzhe out of the Shao Family today. The two of us cannot coexist in the Shao Family!”
No matter how big of a tantrum she had to throw, she had to achieve her final objective.
When he heard Zhao Lan’s words, the corners of Shao Qiyun’s mouth quickly curled up. The people who had come with them also spoke up. Since that was the case, they naturally had to kick Mu Jingzhe out.
Li Zhaodi was furious. However, because Mu Jingzhe had indeed had designs on Shao Qiyang back then, she did feel a little guilty for a brief moment.
In an instant, Zhao Lan and Shao Qiyun had the upper hand. Shao Dong and his siblings’ expressions changed drastically. The five kids surrounded Mu Jingzhe and held her hand tightly.
“You have no right to kick Mommy out. None of you have the right to do so. We’ve split up the family assets. Mommy has every right to stay here!”
Shao Dong calmed down and said, “When we split up the family assets, this house was given to us…”
Zhao Lan immediately retorted, “Which house are you talking about? We’re kicking Mu Jingzhe out today. Children shouldn’t interrupt when adults are talking.”
Shao Dong’s expression was extremely icy. “Alright, we don’t want this house anymore. You don’t have to kick Mommy out. We’ll go. We’ll leave with Mommy and cut ties with you people completely.”
Shao Xi immediately agreed. “Yes, let’s go with Mommy. It’s not like we can’t afford a house anyway. Let’s leave and buy a house. We’ll go wherever Mommy goes.”
“No!” Zhao Lan naturally wouldn’t accept it. It would be terrible if they ran away. “You’re not allowed to leave. I’m your biological grandmother. You have to come with us!”
Shao Dong wanted to say something, but Zhao Lan didn’t give him the chance to. She got up and charged over at Mu Jingzhe. “I’ll beat you to death today, you vixen. You are an immoral slut who seduced her younger brother-in-law. You even duped the Shao Family’s children…”
Li Zhaodi, who had been seething with rage for a long time, immediately rushed up to her and stood in front of Mu Jingzhe when she saw this. “I’ll tear your smelly mouth off. Who told you to spout nonsense? My Jingzhe can marry anyone she wants, so why would she covet her younger brother-in-law? I’ll teach you a lesson today and show you how impressive I, Li Zhaodi, am!”
The two of them wrestled. The people who had come with Zhao Lan and the eldest branch of the family immediately became restless. The atmosphere instantly turned solemn, and things were about to get out of control.
The village chief was so anxious that he kept shouting for them to calm down. If a gang fight broke out and something happened to them, it would be over. As he shouted, he quickly asked the onlookers to pull Li Zhaodi and Zhao Lan away from each other.
