It was Mrs. Sang who came to my aid. She must have known that I had been freezing out there for over an hour, before being stuck here with First Mrs. Sang’s lecturings.
I can see that, and so can First Mrs. Sang.
And so, First Mrs. Sang never even spared an eye for the box in Mrs. Sang’s hands, and retorted back directly, “Qin Qing, I am in the middle of disciplining my own daughter-in-law. Whatever business you might have will have to wait.”
I gave Mrs. Sang an eye, signaling to her in silence and telling her to leave me be. There was no need for her to get involved, it was enough that I alone need to suffer her attitude. If she got involved for my sake and had to suffer through the same thing I had to, I’d feel bad.
Unfortunately, First Mrs. Sang also saw me making a pass at Mrs. Sang with my eyes. She slapped down on the armrest of her sofa, and demanded, “Xia Zhi, what do you think you are doing?”
"Nothing. My eyes were just twitching.” I said in reply.
