- 110 Fighting Spirit; No Need to Wait for the Future!
In fact, Lin Tao was not the only one who was stunned. Dai Weixue, Lin Liqiang, Zhang Guidan, and the others all looked toward the west of the village with doubtful eyes.
According to Shanwu Village’s rules, except for New Year’s, festivals, and wedding events, firecrackers were not usually set off.
Today was obviously not a holiday.
In addition, they did not seem to have heard of anyone’s family holding a wedding.
When Lin Xiaoyao saw that her father was going to set off firecrackers, she had already stood far away and covered her ears.
At this moment, she saw her father stop and could not help but call out, “Dad, are you still going to light up the firecrackers?”
“Yes, of course!” After Lin Tao finished speaking, he lit a cigarette and put it in front of the fuse.
The loud sound of firecrackers rang through the entire Shanwu Village. The red remnants of the firecrackers scattered in all directions, making the scene even more lively and festive.
All the relatives greeted each other, and the atmosphere was very good.
Not long after, a round-faced man slowly walked over while carrying a table.
When he saw Lin Fan, his face revealed a look of surprise and joy, “Lil Fan? When did you come back? Why didn’t you tell me?”
This man was called Chi Zengyi, and he lived behind Lin Fan’s old house. They were of the same age.
Since Shanwu Village only had one primary school, there was only one class for each grade.
Therefore, Lin Fan and Chi Zengyi had always been classmates.
They studied together in class and played together after school. They were very good friends.
“I just arrived,” Lin Fan said.
At this moment, Dai Weixue walked over and said, “Lil Yi, it’s been hard on you. I asked to borrow your table and even had you move it over.”
Usually, when a family held a wedding in Shanwu Village, they would invite their friends and family, as well as everyone in the village, to have a meal and hold a banquet.
Normally, there would be more than a hundred people, including relatives, friends, and villagers. They would need to use at least ten tables.
Naturally, there were not that many tables for the party.
Therefore, the villagers of Shanwu Village would take the initiative to lend out their tables and chairs.
“Aunt, you’re being too polite,” Chi Zengyi said.
“Lil Yi, I heard people setting off firecrackers on the west side of the village. Which family is having a wedding today?” Lin Tao asked.
“It’s Wang Shaodong’s family… I don’t know what’s going on with his family, but he suddenly said yesterday afternoon that his grandfather is also having his 70th birthday today!” Chi Zengyi said.
With that, Lin Tao, Dai Weixue, Lin Liqiang, and Zhang Guidan’s faces all turned ugly… This was definitely done on purpose!
Wang Shaodong’s grandfather was called Wang Yaping.
The fields of the Wang family and the Lin family were connected.
It had rained heavily one year, and the fields were filled with water.
Lin Fan’s grandfather, Lin Liqiang, was worried that the crops would drown, so he used a hoe to dig a ditch along the fields of the two families to make the water flow away faster.
It was this ditch that had caused the Wang and Lin families to be at odds for decades.
This was because Wang Yaping felt that Lin Liqiang had crossed the line by taking his own land as Lin Liqiang’s property. Thus, he often gossiped in the village.
Lin Liqiang, on the other hand, thought that he had done a good thing, but he was misunderstood and framed. He was extremely angry and directly argued with Wang Yaping.
The two families had been quarreling non-stop and had been hostile to each other until now.
Later, someone in Lin Liqiang’s family gave birth to a grandson, so Wang Yaping also wanted a grandson!
Lin Liqiang’s family bought a house outside, so Wang Yaping also bought one…
The overt and covert battles had never stopped.
In the beginning, it was indeed over some farmland.
However, as time passed, it was not just about the fields; it was about dignity!
Lin Liqiang had already told the village that today was his 70th birthday banquet.
Yesterday afternoon, Wang Yaping informed the village that he was also having his 70th birthday banquet today.
Was Wang Yaping not clearly opposing him?
The birthday banquets of the two families were held at the same time.
Where should the villagers go?
Wang Yaping was asking them to make a choice!
According to Shanwu Village’s rules, they would choose the family with the higher status.
If there were two families holding a wedding, unless the villagers had a particularly good relationship with the family, they would usually choose to go to the family with a higher status to congratulate them. It was considered a welcome and respect for the ‘VIP.’
Lin Liqiang’s family did not have any relatives or friends with particularly high status. Wang Yaping had a son who was said to be the general manager of a company in Qing City. He also had a nephew who was a leader in the education world of Qing City.
It was clear which family had relatives and friends of high status!
It would be too embarrassing if no one came to offer their congratulations today.
At this time, tall and cool cars were driving to the west of the village.
Then, the crackling of firecrackers immediately rang out.
The villagers of Shanwu Village had obviously noticed the commotion as well, and they all rushed to the west of the village.
At this time, in front of Wang Yaping’s house, there were six or seven luxury cars, including Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and so on. It was very extravagant.
The entire ground was covered in the remnants of the firecrackers, and it looked as if a red carpet had been laid out.
Many villagers were carrying tables and walking toward Wang Yaping’s house.
“Uncle Li, thank you for coming to the birthday banquet.
“Uncle Zhang, I’ve really troubled you. You even brought a table and a bench…
“Quickly sit down and have some tea.”
The entire place was as lively as a market.
Wang Yaping was wearing a Tang suit today, and his hair was dyed black.
However, the wrinkles on his face and his hunched back could not hide his age.
“The birthday star is here!
“Greetings! I wish you longevity and good health!”
When everyone saw Wang Yaping walk out, they all greeted him.
“Thank you, everyone, for coming to my birthday banquet.” Wang Yaping laughed.
Wang Yaping looked at the villagers in front of the door with a smile on his old face. It truly was a happy birthday. At the same time, he was even happier to be able to compete with Lin Liqiang!
Compared to the lively scene at Wang Yaping’s house, Lin Liqiang’s house seemed a little deserted. Only a few villagers who had good relationships with him came over with tables and chairs.
There were only a few tables scattered in front of the empty house.
Without a large number of villagers, the few tables and chairs were enough.
Lin Liqiang did not have any intention of blaming the villagers for their choice.
After all, it had always been a tradition of the Shanwu Village to respect their guests.
After all, this was his birthday banquet, but it was so deserted now. He could not help but feel a little unhappy.
Chi Zengyi also seemed to feel that the atmosphere was a little off. He complained, “Wang Shaodong’s family is too underhanded! They even want to mess up such a happy event! They just have a few powerful relatives, no?”
“When Lil Fan becomes a big boss and holds a wedding, let’s see what Wang Shaodong’s family will do!”
Lin Fan patted Chi Zengyi’s shoulder and said, “Perhaps we don’t have to wait for the future.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the sound of cars roaring could be heard at the village entrance.
Then, one, two, three…
A black mass of luxury cars drove over from the distance.
Finally, they stopped right in front of Lin Fan.
