Chapter 1390: Meeting Li Qinglang
“If you have money, you can even buy a house out there. It’ll be easy for the two of you to support a child. But if you add two greedy and lazy old people and a willful child, you will never get ahead in this lifetime.
“The two of you consider it. I’ll bring Little Yu with me, and we will see if we can find Sister-in-law a job at the same time.”
Han Jing really could not bear to see her elder brother and sister-in-law waste their lives in this family. They slogged all year but barely had any money leftover. More importantly, they did not even eat well.
Their parents were still so young, but they retired and refused to do anything. Their younger brother, Han Chuanzong, had to go to school, and he must have the best food to eat and the best clothes to wear.
How could Elder Brother and Sister-in-law possibly cope?
They could not carry on like that. They must not carry on like that!
Han Jing brought Han Yu to walk along the streets. Not just the streets. They went somewhere further.
The capital was so large. It was best for Elder Brother and Sister-in-law to move further away from home. That way, they could have a peaceful life. Otherwise, their parents would be able to find them and they would suffer again.

She brought Han Yu to the city.
This was the first time Han Yu had traveled so far and seen that the outside world was so prosperous.
She timidly clutched her Aunt’s hand. She was rather frightened.
Han Jing held her hand. “Little Yu, don’t be frightened. I’ll take care of you. Look, aren’t these houses pretty? And those shops have so many things! When you’ve grown up and you get into university, you can have a good job too. When you’ve earned some money, you can live here!”
Han Yu was filled with hope. Although she was timid, she was not stupid. In fact, she was slightly more intelligent than the average child in the village.
After all, in her family, her father placed great importance on studying. Han Shu had graduated from junior high. In the village, he was considered to be well-educated.
Han Yu had been taught to read and write from a young age.
“I… can I really stay here?”
Han Jing laughed and said, “Of course. Right now, I live here. But I haven’t graduated. When I graduate, I will find a job here.”
Han Yu looked around. She must admit that the environment had shocked her. She had never known that there were such beautiful places.
“As long as I study hard, I can stay here?” she asked.
Han Jing stroked her little head. “Not definitely! No one knows what will happen in the future. But I can tell you that education is your only hope of staying in a place like that. Otherwise, you will be like all the older women in the village. You can only stay in the village and work in the fields.”
Han Yu looked around her. She did not say anything.
Han Jing took her hand. “Let’s go. I’ll bring you to eat something.”
They had only gotten here after taking the bus for more than an hour. Han Yu had practically eaten nothing at home.
The vegetables at home had very little oil. If Sister-in-law added more oil, her mother would scold her for being a spendthrift. Almost any good food in the family ended up in Chuanzong’s stomach. He had eggs every day, and he often got meat. It did not matter if the vegetables he ate had no oil. But Han Yu was not so fortunate.
Never mind meat, she did not even get enough to eat.
She ate so little for lunch. She must be hungry!
She took Han Yu’s hand and was just about to enter a small restaurant when just at that moment, Li Qinglang drove by and happened to see Han Jing standing by the road.
He paused and stopped the car. “Han Jing!”
Han Jing was taken aback when she saw Li Qinglang’s car parked next to her. When she saw Li Qinglang in the car, she immediately smiled. “What a coincidence! What are you doing here?”
