Chapter 13 Frightened into Place
“Zi Ran, Fourth Auntie heard that you’re planning on returning all the loan receipts to the farmers. Is this true?” Within three days, An Changfu’s three wives rushed over immediately when they heard the news. The one who spoke first was Wang Qinglan, who had no children and could only count on appeasing An Ziran to maintain her position in the An family at all.
Hearing the news shocked her beyond all belief. While she didn’t know the exact sum of the receipts, she knew that they amounted to a huge sum. If they gave it all to Anyuan county’s farmers, it would be a huge loss. Quite a bit of the An family’s income was from the profit that farmers turned.
