The call was from his predecessor’s mom.
” Hey, mom what’s the concern? “
“It’s not a significant deal. It’s just that I boiled chestnuts at home and sent you some. Remember to collect them. There are also other specialties that you love such as fermented bean curd, kohlrabi, dried sweet potato, and sausages…” There was a lot of talk over there and she wavered and said, ” Fourth son! “
“Well mom, I am hearing, just relate to me what you want to do. ” Meng Zezhi said in a pleasant voice.
Mother Meng halted and sighed quietly and said, “Isn’t that your eldest sister’s kids are all getting the marriageable age? There are some that can’t live in the same home anymore. Your eldest sister and eldest brother-in-law want to buy another set of homes, you see? “
This is the tempo of how the Meng Mother asks Meng Zezhi to pay!!
Over the years, including the filial piety to Meng’s mother during the visits, the total amount of money and change that the precursor took to his hometown was no less than 2 million. Xu Jiaqing and her predecessor almost got into divorce because of his predecessor’s third brother’s house matter. After the fight, his predecessor was less concerned about the matters of his three brothers and sisters’ house.
That’s why Meng Zezhi can play freely currently.
He said: ” I remember that the home of the eldest sister’s house was just constructed a few years ago? “
In order to construct this house, Meng’s mother financed 10000 yuan, and her predecessor took 80000 yuan.
Although not much, it was all the savings of the predecessor at that moment. On the contrary, his eldest sister’s family basically didn’t make much money out of the home except for a sum of money disbursed on the roof of the house.
At that time, this 90000 yuan was enough to build a small western-style building of two-story and contain seven-bedroom, in the countryside.
If this was the issue before, after listening to her say this, the fourth child would have patted his chest and settled, at this moment Meng Mu clearly heard the denial from her son.
So she switched her mouth instantly: “Yes when your eldest sister’s house was built, the foundation was actually quite deep and good, now if it’s not enough you can just add another layer on it …”
In fact, it’s not that Meng’s mother didn’t comprehend and was emotional. The palm and rear of her hands are both fleshy, but in order to dispatch the most youthful son out of the mountain, the eldest son and two daughters bore tremendous renunciations.
Now that the youngest son is fortunate, it is naturally time for him to compensate his brother and sisters.
In her belief, although the eldest son is matrilocal ( live with his son-in-law), fortunately, the woman has a nicely family background and he has never been short of his food and clothing. Now he also has a child with his own surname, his back is straight now his essence is also much more cheerful.
As for the youngest daughter, although she is married to a lame, she is all good because her husband is an upright person with no father and mother and she can be the head of her house as soon as she entered the door. Although, life was very hard at the beginning and her husband got into a car accident the youngest son was disbursed for his operation. Now he can drive the motorcycle and supply the delivery services in the county, it’s a little bit harder but still is more than enough to feed his family.
Only the eldest daughter who wedded a widower, raised a bunch of step-sons and step-daughters, and married for 24 years but still doesn’t have a child of her own.
The eldest son-in-law has nothing else to do, so she can only live by farming in the village. In addition, she is also reaching older now and is a little incompetent to do work. She gets unwell every few days and the responsibility of the whole household is on her eldest daughter.
Meng Mu is distressed for her elder daughter, she can only speak a few things, she likes the youngest son the most in her heart, not only because he has a nice life, but the most important thing is the whole family has the blessing of the Youngest son.
Therefore as soon as Meng Zezhi showed a sign of contradiction, Meng Zezhi’s mother immediately stopped considering of asking further.
But some people don’t believe so.
” How can it be enough? The hardship is which girl is ready to marry in the countryside like this..”
A pressing voice faintly came from over the other side of the phone.
“What are you speaking about!” mother Meng grunted, and then the phone was stolen.
“Fourth old man, I am your eldest brother-in-law. Your two nephews are both twenty-seven and eighteen this year, But the daughter-in-law hasn’t decided yet. At this time, Jia ming finally talked to a girl and the girl’s home doesn’t want anything just asked for the home, You say where else can we find such a good proposition.”
The tone on the other side of the phone immediately softened: ” But you also know the conditions of my family’s fourth child, Now the family is sponsored by your sisters alone. Even if we drained our savings, we couldn’t get so much money. Yes, Otherwise I won’t talk to you. “
This is his Eldest brother-in-law, He Zhenli.
Meng Zezhi heard this and only said, ” How enough do you need? “
He Zhenli’s tone instantly becomes enthusiastic: “It’s not a lot, six hundred thousand is enough.”
This is a small county village, where the homes are built in the peaks, with problematic transportation and not a developed economy, so housing prices are not naturally much higher. Generally, the price to build a house is only 20000s and the price can be even down in remote places.
Six hundred thousand yuan, must be enough to buy two houses with three bedrooms and one living room. And the remaining money to make a simple decoration.
He Zhenli calculated his youngest son’s marriage house, too.
Sure enough, he continued to him with a smile and said: “When your first nephew gets married, isn’t it your second nephew’s number? I want to craft the house in advancement so as not to be like this as a headless fly, who doesn’t know where to go. “
He Zhenli doesn’t think that he is unashamed, he just thinks he is being careful.
The fourth son bought his third brother a son’s surname for 600000 yuan and he paid nearly 40000 yuan for his second brother-in-law to treat his legs. It just doesn’t make substance to give his house just 80000 yuan to build his house and pass away this matter.
The eldest sister is big and he desires six hundred thousand yuan now.
Meng Zezhi chuckled angrily.
When did the precursor did not try his best to support his family, can this be simply measured by the amount of money??
Meng Zezhi only knows one thing, Being grateful is okay but I can’t let you be a bloodsucker for granted.
Meng Zezhi said coolly: ” Is my eldest sister-in-law here? Let me say a few speeches to her.”
Although He Zhenli didn’t know exactly what Meng Zezhi was trying to haul up, he was superior now, since he had money, so for the sake of six hundred thousand, he could only give the phone to sister Meng who was aside.”
“Hey, fourth child..”
There was a hoarse voice of a middle-aged woman over the phone. Meng Zezhi paused: ” Sister, are you feeling well? “
“Cough, cough… ” Sister Meng alleviated her throat and said, “It’s okay, but when I was picking up Xiao Ning from school two days ago, it suddenly got rained and we got midway in it and got chilly. “
He Zhenli’s ex-wife departed him with two sons and one daughter. Compared to his two sons who have not been married his youngest daughter was wedded early and Xiao Ning is her son.
Because his daughter and ex-wife look-alike, He Zhenli usually loves this daughter most. After
Xiao Ning was born, his grandparents were unwilling to take care of him and his parents were occupied working again, so He Zhenli had taken him back family and let Sister Meng take upkeep of him.
This upkeep has lasted for eight years and the child is in elementary school.
Meng Zezhi’s heart plummeted: “Sister, what do you see of this? “
Hearing this, He Zhenli quickly winked at her.
“I. ..”Sister Meng unlocked her mouth as if thinking of something her countenance was a little sad and said, ” What else can I assume. “
Meng Zezhi understood, he said: ” I see. Pass the phone to Mom.”
” Hello, Fourth Child? “
” Mom, are other siblings there? “
” No, what’s the issue? “
“You call them back first, I have something to suggest to them.”
“Okay,” Mother Meng bounced hesitatingly, feeling that her youngest son’s manner seemed a little wrong. But she also knows that this error was not directed at her.
She glanced at He Zhenli and then as Meng Zezhi instructed, she found her youngest son’s phone number in the phone address book and called them.
“Mom, what’s the matter? ” He Zhenli didn’t comprehend so he suddenly felt uneasy.
Mother Meng neglected him and urged the third child to come over fast.
Hanging up, Meng Zezhi turned and walked toward the laboratory.
Hearing the sound, Zhu Zhengqing put down the instrument instruction that he had carried down in his hand looked up at Meng Zezhi, and said calmly, “Is the call finished? “
At this moment, Meng Zezhi’s mind was colonized by the family matter and he never recollected what happened just now.
He said, ” By the way, Professor Zhu something occurred to my family matters so I will go back first.”
The school is a cramped place and is not good to deal with family concerns here.
Looking at the Meng Zezhi’s apathetic face as if nothing happened just now, Zhu Zhengqing shook hard ” Okay”
” Then I will come about to you in two days. ”
After saying, Meng Zezhi turned around and left the laboratory.
Listening to the fading footsteps in his ear, Zhu Zhengqing controlled his mind.
Is Meng Zezhi disregarding him or did the other party not get the flicker at all?
The corner of Zhu Zhengqing’s lips is pursed and he decisively picked the latter.
Such a big old man, and still so clueless?
Zhu Zhengqing scowled slightly, so sad!!
