So should other people just be able to bully the siblings whenever they wanted? Did they not deserve to live a good life? Obviously, that was impossible.
And this little girl’s stubborn face clearly told Su Yongshun that she and her brother would not just lay down and let themselves be wronged or bullied anymore.
Plus, what Su Tang said was right. Of course, no one wanted two innocent children to die being sacrificed to the River God, but they also wouldn’t be happy to see it if those same two children started leading better lives than everyone else. After all, they used to be poor wretches who could be easily trampled underfoot, so seeing them doing better would make a certain kind of person feel uncomfortable in their heart. If that weren’t the case, then why had there been so many people who had come out to condemn them today?
Today, when Su Tang had asked Su Yongqiang to judge things fairly for them using his position as the patriarch, that was just a move to express her attitude. Then, when she took her brother out to fight with those children that had also been just another move to express her attitude. There was only one message behind her actions: How she and her brother lived their lives was nobodies business but their own.
In fact, the discerning people who had seen what happened today could understand the meaning of Su Tang’s actions. Even Su Yongshun had been able to see it, it’s just he hadn’t expected that she would be so firm in her stance that she would even take her brother out to fight and get revenge.
Plus, during the day they had only used words to show their attitude, but this time the siblings resolutely showed off their determination with action. They were telling everyone that: Whatever they said, that was what they would really do.
Su Yongshun understood all this, so he sighed, before saying, “I understand what Sister Tang is trying to say but if you do things like this… well, forget it. Are you really trying to send Brother Nuo to study? That’s a good idea, if he can really go and study he will be the one laughing in the end.”
As a matter of fact, Su Yongshun had a pretty clear idea of Su Tang’s character. However, when he saw her doing things like this he couldn’t help but sigh, she was such a good girl but now she had a reputation as a tough person. How could she get married in the future with a reputation like this, ah~?
But then he thought further and remembered that Su Tang and her brother had both come back alive after being offered as sacrifices to the River God, so no matter what kind of reputation they had probably no one would be willing to propose marriage to either of them in the future. It was impossible to guarantee that either of them would be able to find partners so the best thing for them to do was to earn money and buy Su Nuo a wife so he could at least carry on the family line.
That being the case, it would probably be better for her to act stronger so that she wouldn’t be bullied. With those thoughts in mind, and in consideration of the fact that she was planning to send her brother out to study, Su Yongshun didn’t bother persuading Su Tang any further. Although studying was something expensive, Su Tang seemed serious about the idea and something in her eyes really made Su Yongshun feel like she would really be able to do it. Of course, that made Su Yongshun very happy since it meant that Su Laochuan’s children were very capable.
Finally, Su Tang and her brother saw Su Yongshun off together. When no one could see them anymore, Su Tang looked at Su Nuo meaningfully and said, “See that? Even after beating people up, the power of words can still be useful.”
‘You‘re so capable of making your flimsy justifications sound beautiful!’ The orange cat had just watched Su Tang deceive Su Yongshun, and now she was even going on to teach Su Nuo bad things, so he couldn’t help but complain.
She had said so many words but, in fact, had only touched on a few important points. Rather than refute Su Yongshun directly, she had instead talked in circles to stir up his feelings of guilt while also expressing her own firm attitude. She had spoken grandly, as if it was a matter of great weight that involved many feelings and long deliberation when, in fact, the only thing she really cared about was being able to earn more money in the future.
In the final analysis, she was ultimately just deceiving people. The orange cat reaffirmed inside his heart that the two-legged animals were all really terrible creatures and, in this world, only four-legged animals were truly simple and kind.
Su Tang gave the orange cat a glance. ‘You four-legged animals can only live by acting cute so I don’t want to hear it. But then, after all, you don’t have any brains, so it’s understandable!’
Orange Cat: Why did he choose this master in the first place? Why did he always have to be attacked? Why did he, a Divine Beast and the guardian of the space, have to be humiliated like this? He was going on strike!
When she saw the orange cat who was using its paws to cover its face while seriously reviewing its life choices, Su Tang’s heart was light, and she didn’t feel that she had bullied the Divine Beast at all. She just said, ‘Go home now, I’ll make crucian carp fish balls for you today!’
The orange cat raised its head instantly and its whiskers twitched ‘No, I want herring fish balls!’
Ah~, in the end, the stomach wins. Su Tang laughed and responded, ‘Okay!’
After hearing his sister’s teachings, Su Nuo was silent for a while before he finally seemed to realize something and said, “I understand, sister!”
