Raising Babies in the 70s - chapter 8
Qin Mian stayed at her grandparents’ house with the other two brothers. Later, at a chance, the young and beautiful Qin Mian met Chen Mian, who came to the south to meet friends. The two got married.
Qin Rou went with her mother, and had a stepfather. The stepfather also brought two boys. She was often bullied, and also developed her pungent temperament.
At the stepfather’s house, she could barely survive at first. Later, when Qin Rou grew up to 12 or 13 years old, she became more beautiful, so her stepfather wanted to molest her.
She escaped from her stepfather’s house and tried to contact her eldest sister Qin Mian. She felt sorry for her sister and suggested that she should go north to Liao Province.
Qin Rou was also a daring girl. She was a girl who alone at the age of thirteen or fourteen grabbed the train ticket and got on the train for a few days to the unfamiliar Liao Province.
When she came to her sister’s house, Qin Rou finally felt the warmth of her family. Her sister was very kind to her. Because she was beautiful and had a good voice, she sent her to a local art school.
After graduating from an art school at the age of sixteen, Qin Rou first went to a regional song and dance troupe, and later was admitted to a cultural and art troupe. However, her sister and sister’s husband’s family was beaten and sent to the farm, where she lived a very tormented life.
The reason why Qin Rou wanted to marry Leader Yang was because she hoped to take care of her sister’s family and make their life better.
“Don’t do such a stupid thing again in the future. Fortunately, you didn’t get married,” Qin Mian didn’t want to make fun of her sister’s happiness.
Qin Rou nodded and agreed, “Sister, I’m sure I won’t be stupid anymore.”
Qin Mian sighed, “It’s also my burden for dragging you down.”
Her family was not good enough so it may delay her own sister’s marriage.
“Sister, don’t say that. If you and my brother-in-law hadn’t taken me in, I don’t know what my life would be like.”
“We are sisters, do you still talk about this?”
When Qin Rou said these words, she felt warm and sour. She had the memory of the original Qin Rou, and also inherited some of her feelings.
Qin Rou was very attached to her sister.
Before transmigrating, Qin Rou’s parents divorced early, and each had their own new family. She lived with her grandmother. Later, when her grandmother died, her parents didn’t care about her, so Qin Rou lived alone.
Her grandma left several old houses for her, which were not worth much at first. She kept them and collected some rent to make money. Because of her love for her grandma, she never sold them. Later, they were demolished and turned into several suites. The housing prices in Shenzhen went up all the way. She knew that her wealth was not to be exposed, so she still lived an ordinary life, collecting some rent and becoming a teacher.
Although she had no worries about food and clothing, she had no relatives and no one to spend New Year’s Eve with every year.
In the 1970s, although she was short of food and clothing, she had relatives who cared about her.
She decided to go with the flow. No matter how incoherent it was, she wanted to live a good life.
“Why did your tone change?”
“Sister, I’m practicing Mandarin.” Qin Rou explained why her tone changed, “I want to take the radio station exam and become an announcer.”
It was a suitable way for Qin Rou. An announcer was a good job in the era. It was much more comfortable than the art troupe and the salary was also high. It was a job that everyone envied.
Qin Rou studied in a normal school, and her major required a high level of Mandarin. In addition, when she was studying and working, she had a lot of experience in broadcasting and hosting. If she worked hard, she may be admitted to be the announcer of the era.
“Announcer? That’s good! Sister, you have such a nice voice, you will definitely pass the exam!” To be a popular announcer in the era was not easy, but her elder sister Qin Mian did not dampen her self-confidence, and encouraged her, “I think your Mandarin is getting better.”
The two sisters looked at each other and smiled.
“Qin Mian, your sister is here?” An old lady in blue walked in from the door. As soon as she entered the room, she stared at Qin Rou from head to toe like she was staring at a piece of meat.
Seeing her, the smile on Qin Mian’s face faded.
The aunt said with a loud voice, “I told you earlier that I will introduce your sister to my eldest nephew. Being with my eldest nephew is better than her being a stepmother, right?”
“It just so happens that your sister is here, so it’s better for her to go see my eldest nephew tomorrow!!”
It was He Chunfang who spoke, and the eldest nephew she was talking about was a well-known second-rate boy near the farm, who was very lazy.
“My sister can’t see your nephew, she has to go back quickly.”
He Chunfang rolled her eyes and deliberately humiliated, “With your family’s status, you still despise my eldest nephew? He is at least single, but your sister almost went to be someone’s stepmother, and was harassed by the old lady. She was embarrassed and her reputation is stinking. If you were someone else, would you introduce any good man to her?”
“Now we all know that she has a charming face and is willing to be a stepmother. Yes, there are many divorced men in the army. Is she going to marry an old man? In the old society, this is called filling a house. Just looking at her face, everyone thinks she can be a concubine.”
Qin Mian picked up the broom and was about to beat her out, but He Chunfang angered her while hiding, “What I said is bad, but it’s the truth. I’ve heard people from her art troupe say that most of the people who want to marry her are divorced old men. It’s better to marry my eldest nephew.”
“Bah!” Qin Mian, who had always been gentle, trembled with anger.
“Sister, don’t listen to her nonsense. My leader introduced the old chief’s son to meet me. He is a young officer, in his twenties, and never married.”
Hearing her words, Qin Mian was stunned, “Really?”
“Really!” Qin Rou nodded, “His surname is Lu, he is a naval officer, young and promising, twenty-five years old, and would be promoted to the regiment chief of staff soon.”
She said something serious, and Qin Mian and He Chunfang were both stunned.
Qin Mian was pleasantly surprised that her sister’s leader introduced her to a young and promising target.
