My Loyal and Lovely Husband
Chapter 10: Where Did You Get the Money?
Jin Weiwei is burning with anxiety and does not know how to explain. However, little Rich, who has been standing by, suddenly answers a few words, " Regular inspection". Jin Weiwei is surprised. Yes, regular inspection!. We can do regular inspection, can't we? It is possible to invite doctor without illness. She could say that she intends to do regular inspection for her livestock. Weiwei thankfully looks at little Rich. Her Rich can always catch the key points at the important moment. She won't let anyone slander her Rich as a fool!. "Regular inspection?" Feng mocks and says, "If no one is ill, who will pay the doctor only for regular inspection? Do you think we are as innocent as a three-year-old child, and could easily believe you?". "That you won't invite a vet doesn't mean I won't!" Jin Weiwei stands out and acts like a movie star. She taps her chest and says, "Our Meat Shop has always been a guarantee of quality. In order to provide meat with the best quality, we not only feed our livestock better than others, but also have regular examinations to ensure that each animal is healthy. Different from those profiteers who merely concentrate on earning money, we are intended to provide meat with good quality for everybody!". Jin Weiwei's declaration is forceful. As soon as she finishes her speaking, people, even the village head, all highly agree with her. Compared with Jin Weiwei's words, Feng's seem to make himself as a money-oriented businessman. Finding people all turn to agree with Weiwei, Feng angrily shouts out, "Bad girl! Don't play a trick anymore! Show us your sick sheep!". "Well, Uncle Feng, don't be angry when you are at such an age! Look, your neck veins bulging! Do not be too angry or you may die in my house, and I don't want to compensate for your death!". "You, you!" Feng never thought Jin Weiwei has such a smart mouth, and is too angry to utter a word. "I? I care about you!" Jin Weiwei smiles and adds, "As for those sheep, I just answered, I sold them all. So, I can not show them to you now. What, you are jealous of me for selling sheep at such a high price? Don't worry. If you give me enough money, I will also introduce this customer to you. Agree?". "That's……that's impossible. Your sheep shouldn't be worth such a high price. You are kidding!" Feng does not know how to debate but definitely denies Weiwei's words without any reasons. "Impossible? I have already sold them, otherwise how can I afford the high attendance fee of doctor Jia. It is because I sold all my sheep, and I could finish my payment now. Listening to this, people all deeply believe Jin Weiwei's remarks now. "How could you talk off hand as an elder? How can you spread the news of plague so casually? You go too far!" Finally, the village head angrily flips his sleeves and concludes, "Feng, you are so misbehaved, and this is the last time to forgive you. Next time, I will seriously punish you!". Feng opens his mouth, but does not say a word. Though he still wants to argue for himself, he can not find any reason to defend himself
So, he could only angrily stare at Jin Weiwei. Finding Feng has turned red with anger, Jin Weiwei doesn't know how to express her happiness. However, is this the end of this battle? Of course not!. "My dear village head, you see, is it because uncle Feng's sheep suf fer from plague, that he comes to defame me? Otherwise, why does he come here and makes a fuss over the plague? Why don't go and check his sheep?" . Jin Weiwei's words greatly shock Feng. Though he has already buried that sick sheep, he could not make s ure that there is no other sheep sick in his sheepfold. However, people's curios ity is aroused. "Yes! Go and ha ve a look!" . "Yes, wh at if his shee p have plague? . Soon, without no more discussion, people take F eng back to his sheepfold. "Well today……" The village head is a little bit embarr assed and promises to Weiwei, "Girl, don't worry. I will se riously punish him and won't let him disturb you any more. "Thank y ou, my dear v illage head. Weiwei happily knows that she cou ld live a better life in Xing Tian vil lage with the village head's promise. After seeing off the village head, Jin Weiwei warmly entertains Dr. Jia and accom panies him to examine the remaining piglets. The piglets in the pigsty are tende r, lovely, active and healthy, but Dr. Ji a still carefully checks them one by one. It seems that the professional doctor is really reliable. Just by looking at doctor Jia's clothes and equipment, she can easily guess his high attendance fee. It is still a loss to invite him just for basic examination at a high price. Jin Weiwei is somewhat uncomfortable, so she can't help asking doctor Jia's attendance fee in an indirect way. However, knowing nothing is better than knowing everything. Though Jin Weiwei knows that the best means the highest, she ne ver thought that the cost of this number one doctor is five Qian. Oh my God! I t's as much as the cost of one lamb! . Why doesn't Little Rich kn ow how to save money? Why does h e invite the most expensive one? . When Jin Weiwei grudges for the payment, she realizes tha t the money she gave to Rich, at most two Qian, is not enough to pay for the doctor. How could he afford the attendance fee? . Seeing Little Rich is helping doctor Jia, she sec retly pulls him to her side. "Tell me, how did you pay for the doctor?" . Little Rich frowned, and looked at he r blankly, as if he was saying, "Didn't yo u give me the money to pay for the doctor?" . "Don't play dumb. I only gave you a few coppers, three coppers at m ost. But just now Doctor Jia said, he wouldn't come unless he was paid mo re than 5 coppers. Be honest with me
Where did you get the extra money?" . Little Rich ju st pursed his mouth and looked at her. Seeing that Little Rich didn't want to answer her, Jin Weiwei was a bit angry, "Did you steal the money?" . Little Rich scoffed and wrinkled his nose, giving he r a sharp look with contempt. "Fine. If you didn't steal it, just tell me w here you get the extra money. I have to figure out the truth tonight, or I won't let you go to sleep. Though Little Rich helped her again at th e critical moment today, she was the one who fe d him and sheltered him. What was his attitude? . He looked arrogant, as if he wa s some bigshot and didn't want to hav e a fight with a petty girl like her. Not answering? Fine. Jin Weiwe i was determined to know the truth and she believed she could make it. "I begged him. " Under th e pressure of Jin Weiwei, Lit tle Rich finally compromised. "You begged h im?" Jin Weiwei co uldn't believe it. Doctor Jia was a cunning man, how come he could be invited here without be ing paid, and only begging him would do? . However, when she was ab out to question Little Rich, the latter asked her instead, . "Whe re are th e sheep?" . Whoa, good move. He kn ew about counterattack. Jin Weiwei lost her confidence. "I sold them. " Jin Weiwei was a little embarrasse d, and avoided the eyes of Little Rich. "I sold them. A fter you left, a customer came and I sold them to him. She might fool others, but Little Rich saw the sheep got ill in the morning with his own eyes. Now she said she sold all the sick sheep out, Little Rich wouldn't buy it. Seeing that Little Rich wanted to ask other questions, Jin Weiwei pretended to yawn and turned around to help Doctor Jia. They were suspicious about each other but mad e excuses for the moment. Before long, the examination was over. Jin Weiwei poured some tea for Doctor Jia. Before he could take a sip, a man rushed in recklessly. "Bad news, But cher Feng's sheep i s getting plagued!"
