Zhou Shi had been a daughter-in-law in the Wei family for more than 10 years, and she had seen how the sister-in-laws in the second, third and fourth rooms of the Wei family had lived as widows for more than 10 years.
The number of times they went out throughout the year could be counted on one hand, they never dressed themself up, they had a bitter face all day long, as if everyone owed them, the courtyard was cleaner than the nunnery, Zhou Shi thought this was not widow, this was a dead life.
She didn’t even have any thought about living like this.
She was also thankful for this, fortunately, Wei An was a worthless guy who didn't need to go to the battlefield, it was okay to be useless, anyway, other promising members of the Wei family couldn't ignore them. As long as Wei An was still alive, she wouldn’t live such a dead life.
But Zhou Shi never imagined that one day Wei An would die because of his ineffectiveness.
When Wei Yunzhao and Jiang Lin appeared at the gate, Zhou Shi wanted to lose her temper with them and talk about how she was locked out of the door last night.
The maid in the back pulled the hem of Zhou Shi 's clothes and shook her head at Zhou Shi , signaling her not to be angry, they had nowhere to go now, if they offended the eldest young master again, they might really sleep on the streets like beggars.
Zhou Shi was full of reluctance, but could only hold back, “Is Yunzhao here to pick up your fifth aunt? Why bother, fifth aunt will go in by herself when you open the door.”
Zhou Shi walked towards the door as she spoke. She was also pretended to be concerned about the family affairs, “How are you all these days, Yunzhao, is your legs better? What did the imperial doctor say? when will you be able to stand up?”
Zhou Shi just landed on the door with one foot and the concierge stood in front of her, and said coldly: “No one is allowed to come in without the eldest young master’s order.
The fifth madam should wait outside first.”
“There are no rules anymore, right? Well, I’m going to teach you a lesson today, these despicable things that don’t distinguish between superiority and inferiority!”
Zhou Shi had suffered too much grievance recently, seeing the concierge dared to talk to her like that, she immediately exploded, raising her hand to hit someone.
The concierge didn't take this at all, and just put on a posture to invite her out, “Fifth Madam, please go out and listen to the eldest young master.”
Wei Yunzhao turned his gaze to Zhou Shi , and gave her a faint look.
For some reason, Zhou Shi always felt that this look was full of deterrence, and the raised hand went down.
She withdrew her hand and smiled at Wei Yunzhao embarrassingly, “Yunzhao, what do you mean? If you have anything to say, you can wait until fifth aunt enters the door.
What does it look like if we talk at the gate? Others will gossip after seeing it.”
The concierge directly lifted Zhou Shi's foot and sent her out, and Zhou Shi stared fiercely, but still didn’t dare to step into the door.
Wei Yunzhao finally opened his mouth, “Zhou Shi, let me ask you, are you really willing to stay in the Wei family as a widow from now on for the rest of your life, eat vegetarian food, chant Buddha, and abide by the women's ways?”
Zhou Shi subconsciously wanted to say no, but she endured it and said, “Yunzhao, what do you mean by that? I know that your fifth uncle is useless and will be beheaded in a short time, but since I marry him, I will be born as a member of the Wei family and die as a member of the Wei family and become the ghost of the Wei family, of course I want to stay in Wei's mansion for the rest of my life.”
Zhou Shi 's words made her felt guilty, and no one would believe her.
Wei Yunzhao said again: “I'll just say this once.
If you want to leave, I will write and give the heli letter to you on behalf of Wei An.
From then on, you have nothing to do with the Wei family.
If you don't leave, today you enter the gate of the Wei family, and it will be difficult to get out in the future.
You can come in after you think clearly.”
[和离 hé lí: one of the ancient divorce systems, according to the principle of peace is the most important, the husband and wife divorce after negotiation, It's not just a piece of paper divorced by the husband.]
Zhou Shi looked at the open door of Wei's mansion, the threshold was in front of her, and she could enter with a slight lift of her foot, and no one stopped her this time. But Zhou Shi felt that her feet weighed a thousand catties, and she couldn't lift them no matter what.
She had lived in this place for more than 10 years, it was her home, and she was very familiar with it. But now this place was like a cage, and she would spend the rest of her life in the cage.
No, she didn't want to!
Zhou Shi shook her head and took two steps back, feeling that the gate was like an abyss, which would suck her in, and then buried her forever at the bottom of the valley.
From then on, she would never see the sky again, only endless darkness remained.
She didn't want to live such a life, Zhou Shi instinctively resisted, “I…I won't enter, I'm still young, I don't want to be a widow.”
The maid reminded her from behind, “Madam, don't think about it, go in quickly.”
Zhou Shi patted away the hand extended by the maid, and asked Wei Yunzhao, “If I take the heli letter, can I also take my dowry?”
Wei Yunzhao tapped the wheelchair with his fingers, “Of course, it's yours after all.”
“Heli, I want to get heli!” Zhou Shi quickly made a decision.
When she married, the Wei family had a high status, and the Zhou family gave her a lot of dowry in order not to lose face.
All these years, old madam Wei gave away her dowry to support Wei An, and her dowry hadn’t been touched at all. As long as there was this dowry, even if the Zhou family didn't arrange for her and abandon her, she could still find a man to live a good life.
Zhou Shi thought well, wishing that Wei Yunzhao would give her the heli letter right now.
