Yu Yong clenched his fists. “I’ll transfer 35 yuan to you every month like before. Ten yuan is for Yu Xuan’s child support. You can keep the remaining 25 yuan for yourself. After all, your expenses are high and you’re doing business yourself. If you need anything in the future, you can look for me.”
Song Yao’s face instantly darkened. She stopped in her tracks and said indifferently, “What do you mean? What do you mean by my expenses are high? Don’t you know how much of the 35 yuan you sent me in the past was spent on me?”
“I’m doing this for your own good.” Yu Yong didn’t know why Song Yao was angry. He straightened his neck and said, “You’re doing business now, so you definitely need a lot of money every month. I know your family’s conditions. I’ll give you more money every month. You don’t have to work so hard.”
After saying that, he glanced at the big basket on the siblings’ backs and sighed. “After you married me, I’ve never let you do heavy work, including when you were pregnant. My mother couldn’t even bear to let you wash a pair of chopsticks, and…”
“Go to hell!” Before Yu Yong could finish speaking, Song Xiao punched Yu Yong hard!
The force of this punch was not small. Blood seeped out of the corner of Yu Yong’s mouth. Song Xiao still did not feel relieved. He pointed at Yu Yong and scolded, “Yu Yong, are you still a man? My sister has spent so much effort for this family for so many years! She can’t even bear to buy clothes! What do you mean her expenses are high? Don’t say that my sister wants to scold you when she hears it. I want to beat you up when I hear it! And that Mom of yours! She said that she doesn’t want my sister to do any work! But in reality, she forced my sister to wash your family’s clothes after my sister gave birth! My sister can’t even eat a hot meal after working for a day! Is this what you call doing her best?”
Yu Yong originally wanted to say that women should work after giving birth, but he was glared at by Song Xiao. He cleared his throat and said, “I really don’t know about this…”
He looked at Song Yao. “If my mother really did it, I’ll get her to apologize to you…”
“Don’t say ‘if’. I’ll go home first. We’ll go through the procedures in the afternoon!” After Song Yao finished speaking, she left with Song Xiao without looking back.
After returning home, Song Yao was not in the mood to tease Xuanbao. She closed the door and rummaged through her things.
Gu Li raised her eyebrows at Song Yao and asked Song Xiao, “What’s wrong with your sister? She didn’t want the braised food?”
Song Xiao scratched his head. “Mom, that’s not why my sister is here. Lin Feng quite likes braised food. He even offered a high price of two yuan.”
“Isn’t that a happy occasion? What’s wrong with your sister?” Gu Li asked in confusion.
Song Xiao sighed and whispered into Gu Li’s ear, “He bumped into Yu Yong. My sister’s divorce procedures with him were approved, but this bastard’s words are too infuriating! He actually said…”
“Mom! I’m going out for a while!”
Before Song Xiao could finish speaking, Song Yao pushed open the door with the envelope. Gu Li was so frightened that she stopped her. “Daughter, I heard that you and Yu Yong have filed for divorce?”
Song Yao nodded and showed the marriage certificate in her hand. “Mom, help me take a look at Baby Xuan. I’ll be back soon!”
When she arrived at the county office, Song Yao readily wrote a list. At the thought that she would be completely divorced from Yu Yong in the future, she and Baby Xuan would not be as miserable as in her dream, Song Yao heaved a long sigh of relief.
When she got the divorce certificate, Song Yao picked it up and took a look. Her name and the date of the divorce were written on it, including the distribution of assets after the divorce and the custody of Baby Xuan. She put the divorce certificate in her bag and was about to leave the hall when she heard someone shout from behind, “Song Yao! You b*tch! After the divorce, you still want my son to support your entire family! Why should our Yu family give you our money!”
Song Yao turned around. Chen Lian was cursing at the top of her lungs. Many passersby surrounded her.
Yu Yong pulled Chen Lian and asked her to go home. However, Chen Lian looked like she wanted the world to be in chaos. “What are you afraid of?! This b*tch insisted on divorcing you because of a small matter! She caused the entire village to talk about us! Do you still want to save her face?”
Yu Yong paused. “Mom, didn’t I say that? Let’s talk when we get home…”
“Let’s make it clear here!”
Song Yao stopped and said coldly, “Can you repeat what you just said?”
“Why? You’re not letting me talk?” Chen Lian placed her hands on her hips. “You know how much money you’ve spent on my son all these years! Why are you still trying to take my son’s money after getting a divorce?”
As she spoke, she went forward to grab Song Yao’s hand. Song Yao refused, so she knelt on the ground and threw a tantrum. “Is there no law? You’ve just gotten a divorce and you’re already talking about money?”
