Chapter 1394: This is Aunt Li
After looking around a few places, Ning Shu picked up an old living hen from a stall selling livestock. Ning Shu paid for the hen and then stuffed it into Cai Anqi’s hand.
Cai Anqi was nauseated by the stench and felt sick.
Ning Shu paid no attention to Cai Anqi’s disgust and continued to buy more vegetables. She handed everything heavy to Cai Anqi and barely carried anything herself.
Cai Anqi’s face became increasingly pale, she was hot and upset. She was made to carry so many things in her hands, while Ning Shu strolled around without a care.
They had already spent more than an hour in the food market, and Cai Anqi was so worn out that she even stumbled a couple of times while carrying the heavy basket.
Not to mention, even after Ning Shu was done shopping, they still had to walk all the way back to their neighborhood.
Just the thought of the long walk back home made Cai Anqi feel like crying. She covertly glared at Ning Shu, who was leisurely strolling in front of her and cursed inwardly.
Her mother-in-law was f*cking evil.
Why did she ever think Yang Ziyi was honest and simple? She was clearly evil to the core.
Ning Shu naturally noticed Cai Anqi’s resentful looks, yet she said nothing.
There was no way she would cater to Cai Anqi’s demands like the original host.
On the way back, Ning Shu met an acquaintance in their neighborhood park so she introduced her to Cai Anqi. “This is Aunt Li. She lives on the fifth floor.”
“Hello, Aunt Li,” greeted Cai Anqi.
Aunt Li looked at Cai Anqi up and down, then said with a smile, “Your daughter-in-law is so pretty. Was she grocery shopping with you?”
Ning Shu gently smiled and said, “She’s a good child. She wanted to come along and help me with grocery shopping this morning. She even helped me carry the things.”
Cai Anqi was inwardly screaming, who wanted to help you with grocery shopping? Who wanted to help you carry things?
“Oh, you even bought an old hen,” remarked Aunt Li.
Ning Shu nodded. “I bought the hen for this girl. Once she gets enough nutrition, she’ll soon be having a baby.”
Aunt Li glanced at Cai Anqi and said, “She does look a bit too thin. You should feed her more.”
What the f*ck?! As if she needed any of that! It wasn’t easy for her to maintain such a perfect body. It wasn’t like she was a pig that would pop out children just because they wanted her to.
Cai Anqi was extremely irritated. The weather was already so hot and unbearable, yet she was still forced to listen to these two old women chatter nonstop. Moreover, her arms felt like they were about to fall off as she was carrying many things in her hands.
“Yang Ziyi is a good person. You’re lucky to have met such a kind mother-in-law,” said Aunt Li to Cai Anqi.
Cai Anqi’s lips twitched in frustration. Her mother-in-law was a good person? Haha…
“Mother-in-law, I’ll go ahead and take all the stuff we bought back to our place first,” said Cai Anqi.
Ning Shu nodded and said to Aunt Li, “I’ve to go back now. Let’s play mahjong together some time.”
They lived on one of the higher floors, so they kept meeting acquaintances as they climbed the stairs. Ning Shu would introduce each and every one of these people to her daughter-in-law.
And each time, they would stop to gossip for a long time.
Cai Anqi had no choice but to stand at the side and watch these people chat with Ning Shu. She was exhausted and felt about to fall apart.
Cai Anqi’s mouth was parched, and sweat kept rolling down her body. She felt like she was about to get heatstroke.
Little by little, after much dilly-dallying, it was almost eleven o’clock by the time they finally got home.
As soon as they reached the house, Cai Anqi quickly put the basket down and lifted her hands to find that her palms and fingers were completely red.
She then ran into the kitchen to gulp down two full glasses of water. She felt exhausted, so she planned to take a long relaxing bath and lie down for the rest of the day.
She had never been so tired before.
But before Cai Anqi could even move, Ning Shu said, “Come here. Help me kill the hen and pluck the feathers out.”
Cai Anqi looked towards Ning Shu incredulously. She didn’t want to do such a thing. She angrily retorted, “I don’t know how to do it.”
