This woman, who was talking to Qin Yirou sounded like she was being nice but was actually being spiteful, was Yang Xiaochun, a neighbor who stayed around Yun Gang’s house when he and Qin Yirou were still husband and wife.
She could be considered Qin Yirou’s neighbor but they had completely no contact later on.
Back when Qin Yirou was not doing well in life, Yang Xiaochun could not even be bothered about her. Recently, though, she had heard that Qin Yirou was getting married again and her husband-to-be was a member of the military! She also heard that Qin Yirou’s daughter had become New Cruise’s director.
A village woman like Yang Xiaochun did not know what company New Cruise was. She had only heard that the company was excelling and was rather famous in Longmen City. Those who worked there were paid incredibly high too.
That was why she pushed herself to give Qin Yirou a 20-yuan wedding gift money today and came over to try and be friendly with the latter.
There would always be this one type of people in the world who thought that they were incredibly close to someone—assuming best friend relationship just because they had given a 20-yuan gift money.
This was exactly the type of person Yang Xiaochun was.
She could care less about Qin Yirou in the past. Back then, there was once Qin Yirou ran out of salt at home when she was cooking and went to borrow some from Yang Xiaochun, The latter obviously had salt at home but stingy and selfish as she was, she felt that Qin Yirou would not be returning the salt after borrowing that little bit, so she lied that she had none at home too.
In reality, Qin Yirou had only gone to borrow some salt from her because she saw Yang Xiaochun’s husband having just bought a packet of it. It was just that she was too embarrassed to press the matter further when Yang Xiaochun refused to lend her salt.
From then on, Qin Yirou had decided to stay away from Yang Xiaochun. She did not expect that the woman would come today and even give her wedding gift money when she used to be so stingy.
The fact was, however, 20 yuan was considered little even if it was wedding gift money in 1999. People from the village who would give 20-yuan gift money were usually old women who were really impoverished that they could barely make ends meet and feed their families.
Qin Yirou had not really liked Yang Xiaochun. Now that the latter gifted her the wedding gift money, she thought that she had the right to speak and began to criticize Qin Yirou.
Truth to be told, the main reason Yang Xiaochun would speak like this was because she was jealous—jealous that Qin Yirou’s second marriage was dozens of times better than young women getting married for the first time.
Ge Junjian’s status was nothing anyone in Xinjiang Town could compare to. Even in Longmen City, he was among the cream of the crop.
When Yang Xiaochun saw that Qin Yirou would rather toy with the bridal head accessories to be used tomorrow and ignore her, she was indignant and said again, “Yirou, we’ve been neighbors for a little over a decade. Could I possibly mean ill toward you?
“What are we, women, scared of? We’re the most afraid of getting into a bad marriage then a divorce and getting married again with children. Who knows if the guy will be nice to you in the future after you get married?”
“I think you should just follow what A-Hua from our town did last month. She got married for the second time and was done with a simple banquet. I—”
Dong Ruan had gone to use the toilet, so she was unable to fight back on behalf of Qin Yirou. That was why Yang Xiaochun could go on and on with her nonsense. However, just as she got to this part, Yun Jian had already come to Qin Yirou.
Before Yang Xiaochun could finish her sentence, Yun Jian broke her off instantly.
“The person getting married is my mom, not you. Our family will decide how the wedding will be held. Who do you think you are? What right do you have to be carping here?”
