When Su Tang heard him say that, she raised an eyebrow. It seemed that this was his goal. However, just as she opened her mouth and was about to reply, she heard the sound of a horse moving very quickly, it’s hoofs clattering loudly. Soon, a beautiful young man dressed in black galloped up to the door and dismounted in one smooth motion.
“When did the servants around me become so unruly? When did my attendants start to think that they could take the place of their master and do business in my place?” Luo Xingchen’s tone was very sarcastic and after she flashily dismounted Su Tang saw several other attendants appear on the road behind her, still trying to catch up.
Yongwang turned pale at the sight of Luo Xingchen. “Second young master, why…” Obviously, he hadn’t expected that Luo Xingchen would appear at this time.
Luo Xingchen directly took her riding whip and lashed it over at Yongwang. “Why wasn’t I be led away by my brother’s people? Why did I appear here? Is that what you want to ask?”
The whip hit Yongwang’s face and there was instantly a bright red and bloody mark left where it had fell. He quickly knelt down and said, “This small one wouldn’t dare to offend the second young master!”
“You wouldn’t dare?” Luo Xingchen sneered, “It’s Luo Xinghe that you really wouldn’t dare offend, right?!”
Luo Xingchen angrily lashed out with the whip again as she thought that even the attendants directly by her side dared to betray her like this.
The lash left another bloody mark on Yongwang’s face, and he was now looking quite wretched. Meanwhile, Zhang Cuilan and Baohe, who had only recently been bought and brought to this household, watched on from the side. Baohe’s little face turned white with fear and she hugged her mother tightly.
This mother and daughter pair had often been beaten by the men in their family back when they were still at home so, when they saw Yongwang being beaten like this, it naturally stirred up some unpleasant memories in both of them.
At the same time, Su Tang leaned lazily against the doorway and sneered. “I also wondered what kind of attendant has such a great ability to do business in place of their master. Second Young Master Luo, it seems that brother of yours is quite ‘amazing’.”
Her tone was very sarcastic, and when Luo Xingchen heard that she looked over at Su Tang. She looked a bit embarrassed but still said shamelessly, “I will give you an explanation later.”
Just then, the servants who had been trying to catch up with Luo Xingchen finally arrived, and she handed her whip over to one of them before ordering. “Cut off his hand and send it to eldest brother as a gift. After that, feed him the mute medicine and sell him off to the northwest mine!”
When the servant heard Luo Xingchen’s order, he quickly bowed: “Yes!”
When Yongwang heard Luo Xingchen’s ruthless instructions, he suddenly kowtowed and begged, “Second young master, this small one was wrong, please spare this small one, this small one…”
Luo Xingchen rubbed her forehead with irritation and shouted “Noisy!”
The servants who had just arrived didn’t dare to let things continue like this and annoy their master even more, so they directly shut Yongwang’s mouth and pulled him away.
Finally, the scene quieted down and Luo Xingchen moved to pull Su Tang inside. Su Tang saw that and snorted, “It seems that Second Young Master Luo really is as tyrannical as they say!”
When Luo Xingchen heard that, she looked at Su Tang with eyes that seemed very aggrieved but did not speak. However, the look in her eyes practically screamed ‘I’m so pitiful, please comfort and reassure me’.
Unfortunately, Su Tang was impervious to those charms. She just blinked and said. “What a pity, it seems you can’t even control the people around you!”
“Tang…” Hearing Su Tang’s scolding, Luo Xingchen dragged out her name while speaking in a voice that was sticky sweet.
On Zhang Cuilan and Baohe’s side, they had just seen the beautiful young man called Luo Xingchen arrive in a fit of rage and start beating people. That, coupled with their own bad memories, caused them to feel so afraid that their faces turned white but then, seconds later, they saw that same young man’s attitude turn 180 degrees when facing Su Tang, and they almost couldn’t help but wonder if their eyes had been playing tricks on them before.
At the same time Su Tang was breaking out in goosebumps from hearing that coquettish tone, so she said. “Don’t come here!”
When she saw Su Tang rubbing her goosebump-covered arm uncomfortably, Luo Xingchen smiled, then narrowed her eyes and then pulled Su Tang into the main room.
Su Tang turned around and told her, “Ms. Lan, go prepare some warm water and make some of that Honey Hawthorn tea and send it to the east wing.”
Zhang Cuilan immediately agreed and disappeared off to the kitchen to prepare the things. At the same time, Luo Xingchen and Su Tang walked inside and found Su Nuo there practicing his reading and writing. When he saw his sister arrive with a young man in tow, Su Nuo stood up uncertainly.
