Chapter 1337: Especially Aggrieved

At this moment, in this bakery, the man and Xu Cheng had already become the focus of attention.

Their surroundings were filled with discussions.

“That man is too stingy. If it were me, I definitely wouldn’t find such a man.”

“Why don’t you take a look at that woman’s appearance? I feel like she’s already lucky enough to find someone, yet she’s still acting up!”

“That’s right. I also think that woman is acting up a little too much. That glass of fruit juice was placed there and she hadn’t even touched it yet, yet she still wants to buy another glass. I don’t know what she’s thinking.”

“She probably doesn’t want to share a drink with her man. If it were me, I wouldn’t want to share a drink with someone else either.”

“Ugh, no matter what, a woman still needs to be financially independent. Can’t you guys tell? Her husband was complaining that she didn’t know how to earn money. She probably stay at home waiting to be taken care of. If you’re not financially independent and always want to rely on others, you deserve to be despised.”

The bakery suddenly became a little noisy.

Ruan Zeyan’s brows furrowed slightly. It was obvious that he was extremely disgusted with Xu Cheng and her husband. He asked Ling Tianya softly, “Do you want to go somewhere else?”

Ling Tianya nodded. “We’ll leave after I finish the cake.”

The cake from this bakery had always been Ling Tianya’s favorite. When she was pregnant with little rice dumpling, she had asked Ruan Zeyan to buy her a lot of cakes during the month when she was in the hospital.

“Mn, you can take your time,” Ruan Zeyan said softly with his eyes never leaving Ling Tianya.

Due to the comparison, Xu Cheng was furious. “I’m your wife. So what if I spend some of your money! I don’t want anything too expensive. I just want a piece of cake and a cup of juice. Is that too much?”

The man laughed at Xu Cheng out of anger. “Not expensive?” As he said that, he pointed at the cake Ling Tianya was eating. “Look, it’s just a small piece, but it costs at least 50 yuan. With a cup of juice that’s more than 30 yuan, it’s almost 100 yuan in total. 100 yuan! I can only earn three 100 yuan a day! 100 yuan is our family’s few days worth of grocery bill. You want to eat it just like that?”

The man’s words were undoubtedly telling them about their family’s financial conditions.

Xu Cheng was embarrassed and bit her lip. “Okay, stop talking. I’m not eating anymore. Let’s go.”

Xu Cheng only wanted to leave as soon as possible. She didn’t want Ling Tianya and Ruan Zeyan to laugh at her.

But the man picked up the newspaper again, “Why are you leaving?! It’s so hot outside, and there’s no air conditioning at home. After we go back, we still have to boil water to take a bath. It’s troublesome and expensive! We should just stay here and wait for the weather to cool down before leaving. Besides, it’s not like I didn’t spend a lot of money. I spent more than thirty yuan, so why can’t I sit here?!”

At that moment, there were already sounds of mocking laughter around. However, the man didn’t seem to hear them and continued to read the newspaper.

Xu Cheng’s entire face was flushed red. “Let’s go. Aren’t you hungry? Go home and cook some food!”

“Who wants to eat the food you cook? I already bought two green dumplings before I got off work. I won’t eat anymore since I’m full.”

“Then what about me?” Xu Cheng asked with her eyes wide open.

“Don’t we still have yesterday’s leftovers at home? You can eat it after heating it up. What else do you want?” The man seemed to have started to get frustrated as he muttered, “Seriously, back then, my mom didn’t let me marry you. She said that you didn’t know how to do anything and that you didn’t have a stable job yet. Marrying you would be the same as marrying a young madam. I really should have listened to my mom back then. You can’t do housework well, and you don’t go out to earn money. You just stay at home and watch TV every day, and you only know how to eat. We’ve been married for almost a year, and your stomach hasn’t even reacted at all. I really don’t know what I need you for!”

Xu Cheng listened to the man’s complaints, but her eyes looked at Ling Tianya and Ruan Zeyan. Her eyes immediately turned red, and she felt especially aggrieved.
