Now I’m prepared to do it! ” Shuangshuang had hardly finished when Guiying shouted out: “Actually we’d all thought of you for the job! ” Fourth Auntie added excitedly: “Shuangshuang can do it! ” “All right,” said the Old Party Secretary. “You can go. ” Shuangshuang blushed: “It’s a uniform! ” Guiying interrupted: “Let’s go! ” When she finished speaking, she and Fourth Auntie took Shuangshuang by the arms and marched her off toward the canteen. Xiwang was at home, suona in hand, playing along with the tune being broadcast over the local radio network.
And she headed outside. ” Shuangshuang said as she buttoned up her jacket and stormed out. As Xiwang watched her leave the room, he sighed to himself, “Ai! It’s true what they say, that oil and water don’t mix. ” Shuangshuang went to Sun You’s home but couldn’t find him there, so she ran straight to brigade headquarters to look for the Old Party Secretary. It was still dark, and the Old Party Secretary and some committee members had just retuned from inspecting the paddy fields. They were furious when they heard her account of the events.
Then she heard Xiwang exclaim: “No way! It’s Politics in Command for me from now on! ” Sun You pleaded: “Look, Xiwang, we are both members of the Sun clan, we have to stick together. If this gets out, I’ll be disgraced. It’s like this . ” He murmured on inaudibly for a while, and then Xiwang responded: “What do you mean by ‘in the future our two families can use it together’â†œ? You still believe in private ownership! I think you’d better hurry up and get rid of that way of thinking. I’m telling you, the two of us are not on the same path.
