The four of them did not waste any time on the way and arrived at the Xia residence very quickly.
Xia Zhe knocked lightly on the door.
He did not expect the helper to be the one opening the door. At this time, the helper should be cooking in the kitchen.
Why could she come to open the door
They noticed that the helper, Auntie Chen, kept blinking at Xia Zhe and even gestured for Qiao Mei to leave quickly.
Xia Zhe and the other two women immediately understood what Auntie Chen meant and frowned.
Only Kong Li could not tell what was going on.
“Why are you blinking so hard Is there something wrong with your eyes” Kong Li asked.
Qiao Mei held her forehead helplessly.
If she had known earlier, she would not have brought this woman here today.
The living room was separated from the main door by a wall.
The people inside the house could not see the people outside.
“Auntie Chen, whos here” a woman asked from the house.
Qiao Mei thought that it did not sound like Xu Lan.
In addition, Xia He had mentioned this morning that Second Aunt-in-law and Third Aunt-in-laws personalities were not as tough as this, so the voice must belong to Eldest Aunt.
“Its Miss Xia Hes sister-in-law.
She might be here because of something urgent.
Let me ask her.” Auntie Chen still wanted to cover it up.
Just as she was about to close the door, the eldest aunt shouted, “Since shes here, then shes our guest.
You should ask her to come in and have a seat.
Besides, if Xia Hes sister-in-law really has some urgent matter, what can you do to help”
Auntie Chen had no choice but to open the door and let Xia Zhe and the others in.
“Eldest Aunt, Im here with my younger brother and sister-in-law,” Xia He said with a smile as she entered.
After going past the wall between the house and the door, Qiao Mei realized that it was an ambush.
She thought that there were only their relatives in the house, but she did not expect to see more than 10 people around.
Other than the relatives that she had never seen before, there were also a few “old acquaintances” from her village.
“Who are these people” Xia He looked at the people around her in confusion.
She had not heard that there were going to be so many people when she came in the morning.
Xia He looked at Xia Fang with a puzzled expression.
“You dont need to care about who they are.
The three of you can go to one side.
It has nothing to do with you,” said the eldest aunt, Xia Xiu.
Xia He stood at the side with Xia Zhe and Qiao Mei with a puzzled look on her face.
She did not even dare to breathe loudly.
Xia Jun usually had the final say in family matters, but if it was regarding any critical issue, he would still wait for their eldest aunt, Xia Xiu, to come back before he made a decision.
It seemed that what was happening today was no small matter.
“What did you say you were here for” Xia Xiu asked.
The two people standing in the middle of the main living hall did not dare to answer.
These two people were Qiao Meis “old acquaintances” from the village.
She could no longer remember their names given that she last saw them a very long time ago.
Qiao Mei only remembered that everyone called this old woman the old widow and she was famous for being mean.
As for her son, Qiao Mei really had no impression of him.
“Speak up! Werent you very eloquent just now!” Xia Xiu slammed the table and said sternly.
“I… Im here to look for my wife!” Wang Yong was so frightened that he knelt on the ground.
Look for his wife Why is he looking for his wife here
Xia He was even more baffled and looked at Qiao Mei and Xia Zhe in confusion.
She realized that the two of them were frowning, so it appeared that this matter must be related to Qiao Mei.
“This is everyone in our Xia family.
Come and see who is your wife” Xia Xiu asked.
This question made Qiao Mei and Xia Zhe feel their hearts skipped a beat.
They knew that these two people were up to no good by coming to their house today.
Wang Yong sized up the people in the room nervously.
He did not expect the old widow to jump up and run straight towards Kong Li, who was standing next to the door.
Seeing that his mother had recognized her, Wang Yong followed closely behind.
He pounced over and grabbed Kong Lis hand.
“Mei Mei, come back with us! I wont hit you anymore! In the future, Ill give you all the good food and drinks at home! Come with us!” the old widow cried out as she hugged Kong Li.
“Come back with us quickly! Every generation of our Wang family only has one child! Only one child per generation! You must come back and give birth.
After that, you can go anywhere you want!” Wang Yong said as he held Kong Lis hand tightly.
Everyone in the house looked at one another.
Only Xia Xiu stared fixedly at Wang Yong, seemingly deep in thought.
This was no small matter.
Someone must be plotting against the Xia family and she had to get to the bottom of it.
