"What are you trying to say? Are you blaming Carson for giving us money?" I was stating a fact, but Mrs. Boyer didn't want to admit it and got angry. "I knew it! I knew that you looked down on us! If that's the case, me and my husband will leave. We won't be an eyesore for you."
"Mrs. Boyer, calm down. That wasn't what Lily meant." Jolene quickly tried to calm the situation down when she saw that we were arguing.
"Don't be unreasonable, Mom. Are we even talking about the same thing? When have I ever stopped Carson from giving you money? You also know how much money I have given you privately for the past few years." My goal here today was to intentionally cause a scene. I wouldn't let her have her way like usual.
"So you're trying to settle how much I owe you now? You think I need your money? If Carson hadn't persuaded us, we wouldn't have tolerated a daughter-in-law like you who couldn't give birth, and would have sent you out a long time ago.” Mrs. Boyer turned angry from her embarrassment and started to talk about the matter of me being infertile.
"Who are you calling infertile? Who insults someone like this?" Without holding back, I started shouting as well.
"I'm talking about you!" Mrs. Boyer was a shrew. In her deep-rooted thoughts, a person who couldn't have children should be timid. There was no way she could accept me butting heads with her, thus reached out a hand to shove me. I was waiting for this, so I followed the push and fell to the ground.
