Xu Xiaofen went to Xu Zifan after saying those harsh words, frowning and saying, “I’ve told them what you wanted me to say, but do you think it’s really going to work? Mom has always been the biggest troublemaker, you know. If she makes a scene, the impact will definitely be bad. You’ve been developing so well, but what if people get a hold on you over this?”
Xu Zifan casually replied, “Hold what? At most, I would be accused of being unfilial. There are so many interests linked to me that this little impact won’t become anything at all.”
Xu Xiaofen shook her head and said, “When I think of them, I get a headache. I don’t know when they would stop, and live in peace and quiet.”
“Soon. ” Xu Zifan made a phone call, and those who watched the Xu family withdrew.
When Father Mu and Mother Xu saw it, they immediately ‘escaped’ with Xu Zilong. After getting tired of walking, they found that they didn’t know how to deal with Xu Zifan. If they go to the factory or the county government, those people will immediately catch them, and they don’t want to be locked up to suffer again. Xu Zifan was the big boss here, and the County Prefect was his respected father-in-law. They don’t even know who to turn to. Finally, they thought of something and went to the Public Security Bureau.
Even if the Magistrate is a great official, under the eyes of the Public Security Bureau, can they ignore it?
Xu Zilong came up with the idea that the three of them should be close to the Public Security Bureau and have Mother Xu crying and clamoring for her ungrateful children. Sure enough, the number of onlookers soon increased, and there were people kindly asking what had happened to them. Mother Xu quickly said, “My son and daughter have made money here, so we quickly came to see them. But they actually resent us, two old and one young person as burdens ah. They earned so much money and still refused to give us a mouthful of food, and said we should go to beg for food in our old age ah…”
“Who is this unfilial person? What is your son’s and daughter’s name and where are they?”
“Yes, yes, our Donghe County is the most united. There has never been such a thing, so they must be outsiders? Where do they work?”
“Older sister, you say it, all of us will do it for you. The Public Security Bureau is there too. Bring them in for questioning and they’ll be set straight.”
When Mother Xu saw a dozen people helping her to curse together, she became complacent and loudly said, “My son is Xu Zifan, and my daughter’s name is Xu Xiaofen. These two unfilial things, their conscience must be eaten by dogs. You guys are right, I have to call the authorities to bring them in and we will see if they would give us a retirement.”
Suddenly, the surroundings were quiet, and everyone stepped back to keep a safe distance from them. Then an old woman spat and angrily said, “What kind of people are you? Seeing Director Xu develop well, you want to harm him? Look at you, you look like a wicked old lady. Can someone like you be Director Xu’s mother? Are you dreaming?!”
Mother Xu’s eyes widened, “I’m really his mother, what are you talking about? Why don’t you believe me?”
“If you really are Director Xu’s mother, then you deserve to beg for food. Seeing you like this, and still wanting the policemen to arrest Director Xu. Aren’t you the one who should be arrested? Director Xu is our village’s great benefactor. He is as good as the reincarnation of the Guanyin Bodhisattva. He has helped us a lot and subsidized the over-60-years-old elderly. You accuse him of being ungrateful? Bah! If he’s really unfilial, it’s because you’ve done something to freeze his heart, and you deserve it!”
“Yes! We all took the subsidy given by Director Xu. What was it called? It is called the Compassionate Charity Fund, which is run personally by Director Xu, specifically to subsidize the elderly. He even takes such good care of outsiders, so how can he not be filial to his parents? There must be a reason for him not being filial. We should call the police to arrest you!”
While they were arguing, an old man actually ran in and called the police. He said that the three Xu family members were swindlers. After Father Mu produced a letter of introduction to prove his identity, the whole group blocked the police station again, saying that the three Xu family members were definitely up to no good. Otherwise, Director Xu wouldn’t ignore them.
Didn’t the two youngsters say hello to them politely and kindly, how could they be unfilial? It must be the fault of their parents, and the brother. Xu Zilong looks like a gangster and was definitely not a good one. Otherwise, why did Xu Zifan and Xu Xiaofen help each other and have such a good relationship, but not with him?
The Xu family was really scared. Why didn’t anyone in Public Security help them ? They hadn’t even said several sentences before they were surrounded by a group of people scolding them. Did Xu Zifan have such a high reputation in Donghe County?
They always felt that they might be locked up if they continued, so they quickly pleaded that they wouldn’t sue anything and hurried away. This time, they were really homeless. When they were hungry, they found a restaurant to eat, and watching the money spent made Mother Xu feel bad. They had little money, and if they couldn’t rely on their children, they had to hurry back, or else they would spend all they had. Wouldn’t they be poor? The most important thing was that Father Xu had resigned, and they had no way out.
The story that the Xu family came to Donghe County and wanted to sue Xu Zifan for being unfilial soon spread, and everyone’s reaction was similar. It was assumed that the Xu family was the one at fault first. No one would believe that Xu Zifan was stingy and didn’t provide for his parents, given the generosity that he showed to them. Xu Zifan’s character has never been a problem, and if he had conflicts with his parents, it must be his parents’ fault.
In the future, if it was many years later, even if Xu Zifan was a big boss and the richest man, there won’t be so many people supporting him. They might even resent him for being rich and scold him a few times. However, this era had its benefits, as it was easier for people to revere a person. In particular, this person had changed their lives and brought them countless benefits, so that they could really live a good life. They truly believe in him from the bottom of their hearts and thought that he was absolutely good.
When he came back home, Wu Zhigang mentioned a couple of things that happened that day. Su Qing was a bit stunned. She never expected that Xu Zifan, who had always kept his head down and didn’t say anything in front of his parents in his last life, would be so indifferent to leave them behind now. Hearing the news, she couldn’t sit still. She made an excuse to go to the store. In fact, she searched for 3 hours in the streets on her bicycle, and finally found the Xu family.
She pretended to be a good-hearted person and went up and asked, “Uncle and Aunt, what’s wrong with you? Why do you look like you’ve been beaten up? Do you want me to help you call the police?”
Mother Xu waved her hand and angrily patted the dirt on her body, “No need, your Donghe County officers, humph!”
Su Qing looked puzzled and said, “What’s wrong with our officers? I have relatives in my family who work for the government, but what’s your grievance? Why don’t you tell me about it?”
Xu Zilong impatiently said, “What’s the point of talking to you? Who are you? Don’t you guys think that Xu Zifan is in charge of the world?”
“Xu Zifan?” Su Qing wondered, “Isn’t Xu Zifan just the Magistrate’s son-in-law? What’s so great about a live-in son-in-law? He has a big name, but it’s just a name. It’s all thanks to his father-in-law, so what’s the big deal?”
Father Xu frowned and asked, “Live-in son-in-law? When did he do that?”
Su Qing shook her head. “That I don’t know. I heard that he was obedient to his wife, and he goes to school to pick up and drop her off every day. His wife is the envy of the girls in our county. She has a good father and a husband who listens to her so much. If there’s anything she’s not perfect at, it’s probably not being able to have children. Otherwise, her life is perfect.”
Su Qing looked at her watch, smiled and said, “I have work to do. You really don’t need help? Then I’ll go first.”
“Eh? Girl, I was going to ask something else, girl…” Mother Xu wanted to grab Su Qing, but Su Qing had already stepped away with her bike. She waved her hand at them, said it was really urgent and she would talk about it next time.
The Xu family stood in the same place and looked at each other. Mother Xu said, “We haven’t met Yang Wanyun yet. If we get hold of his wife, won’t he do as he’s told? She can’t have children. Who wouldn’t divorce someone who can’t have children? She definitely wouldn’t dare to oppose us. Besides, women care most about reputation and face. She is still in school, so we have to go to the school to find her. She will definitely obey us.”
Xu Zilong excitedly said, “Mom, you’re right, she also wrote a book as a writer, right? Great writers care about fame. If we publicize her unfilial affairs, who would buy her books? She has to help settle us down. This time, let’s speak about it in the school. If we can’t negotiate, we’ll make a scene in front of the teachers and students. With so many people, I don’t believe that they would still stand on Xu Zifan’s side!”
Father Xu didn’t comment. His heart was full of fire now. If he hadn’t settled down, he would have lost his temper.
The few people went to the school to find Yang Wanyun. It turned out that Xu Zifan had already greeted the doorman. Not only did he not let them in, but also called Xu Zifan to report. Xu Zifan, who was still the Principal of this school, directly ordered the security team to expel them. It just so happens that Yang Wanyun had to go out of school to run an errand and ran into them.
Yang Wanyun’s books were printed with her photo on the front page, so the Xu family recognized her at first sight and pointed to her and shouted, “Yang Wanyun! Yang Wanyun, please tell them to let things go. We are your in-laws. Why won’t they let us look for you? Did you tell them to do this? Why are you so cruel?”
Yang Wanyun frowned, stepped forward and politely said, “Father, Mother, what do you need to see me about?”
Mother Xu said, “You still know to call us Father and Mother? What did Xu Zifan do? How dare he lock us up for so many days and say he won’t give us our retirement. Do you know all this? Did you encourage him to do it? You married into the Xu family, and we are your elders. You dare to not provide for our old age. You shall drown in the spit!”
(TNote: Drown in the spit = metaphor; people will spit on you/ despise you thoroughly, to death.)
Yang Wanyun looked at the security guard and asked, “Zifan told you to stop them?”
“Then you can do what Zifan said.” Yang Wanyun gave out the instructions. She nodded to Father Mu and Mother Xu, and said lightly, “Father and Mother, I’m sorry, I don’t know much about your family and can only respect Zifan’s decision. If you have any grievances, go to Zifan and talk to him.”
Mother Xu was all set to give her daughter-in-law a good fight, then pose as a mother-in-law and make demands step by step. Seeing that Yang Wanyun was about to leave, Mother Xu couldn’t break free from the security guards and could only sharply say, “Aren’t you afraid that we will spread the news about your unfilialness?”
Yang Wanyun paused in her steps and coldly said, “If parents aren’t kind, children aren’t filial. You can do whatever you want. I believe people will have their own judgment. Also, I finally know why Zifan and Older Sister don’t want to go home.”
“What did you say! Say it again?! How dare you chicken that can’t lay eggs, put on a show in front of me? I’ll make sure you’re divorced in the future!”
(TNote: chicken that can’t lay eggs = infertile.)
Yang Wanyun turned around and said coldly, “You can be a chicken if you want. Don’t think everyone else is just like you. Originally, I wanted to ask Zifan to take you all home for a few days, but now it seems that you are better off in the old house.”
Father Mu’s heart thumped, pulled Mother Xu and shouted, “Shut up! There is no end to it! Do you want to be locked up again?”
Mother Xu struggled in panic and found that the security guard didn’t let go of her arm again, so she got scared, “What? What are you doing? Let go of me, I’m calling for help!”
A security guard stuffed her mouth with a handkerchief and dragged her forward. Mother Xu screamed in fear. Father Mu and Xu Zilong were also caught, they panicked and said, “Let go, let go. We’re not going to look for anyone anymore.”
The security guard said, “Too late. Didn’t you hear the Vice Principal say that you are more suitable for living in the old house? Go there now.”
“No, no, no. We won’t go…”
Xu Zilong’s mouth was stuffed silent before he finished, and even Father Mu’s mouth was blocked. The three of them were put into the old house again, and the people outside guarded them closely. The food was not as good as before. Finally, Father Mu couldn’t hold back his anger anymore and slapped Mother Xu to the ground!
