“Sister, what are you doing?” Su Nuo was a little curious about what his sister was doing. But then he seemed to have an idea and his eyes opened wide, “Can you make money with stones?”
Probably, Su Tang’s ability to make money had been firmly ingrained in Su Nuo’s mind recently, so now he would always think of making money no matter what she did.
Su Tang didn’t know if she should laugh or cry. What exactly did she look like in her little brother’s heart? Was it at least something positive?
“I can’t use them to make money, but I can use them to vent some of your anger at least. Do you remember the ones who hit you? Well, your sister is bringing you to hit them back.” Su Tang said while throwing another stone into the basket.
When Su Nuo heard his sister say this, his eyes brightened considerably. “Can I really hit them back?”
“Of course, sister here will take you to beat them up right now!” Su Tang grinned.
Before Su Nuo even noticed it, they had already arrived in front of the first house. Su Nuo saw a boy playing out in the yard in front of the house and shouted, “That’s him! He threw several stones at me!”
Su Tang nodded, took a stone herself, and then gave another stone to Su Nuo. Then, “Let’s go!”
The brother and sister exchanged smiles before both throwing their stones at the boy. As for the boy, he had been playing in the yard of his own home when suddenly stones fell from the sky and landed on his body. He jumped up and cried out in pain.
Su Tang and her younger brother both threw several more stones at him until they saw that his parents seemed to be coming out of the house, at which point they quickly turned and scampered away. Then they rushed to the second house and repeated the whole process.
The orange cat had properly noted down each child that had been throwing stones at Su Nuo so Su Tang and her brother spent nearly half an hour going from house to house. They didn’t spare any of the stone-throwers and so, by the time they were done, all the stones Su Tang had picked up had been thrown at those brats.
After that, Su Suo pulled Su Nuo with her to go back home. At first, Su Nuo had felt very happy following his sister to beat people up but, on the way back, he started to feel a little worried, “Will they come after us for this?”
“Scared?” Su Tang asked back.
The little guy straightened his back and puffed out his chest, “I’m not scared. They hit me first.”
Su Tang nodded. “That’s right. We’ve already done it anyway. If they dare to come and complain to us, we’ll just talk to them with reason. After all, they hit you first, right?”
Su Nuo thought for a moment, and seemed to agree that things really were like that, “Yes, they started it.”
“Then it’s fine, we won’t be at a disadvantage.” Su Tang said.
Su Nuo instantly understood what she was saying and agreed, “That’s right, we didn’t do anything wrong.”
The siblings were heading home but, before they arrived, they saw that there was someone standing in front of the door. It was Su Yongshun. When he saw the two children coming back, he walked up and said, “Sister Tang, Brother Nuo!”
Su Tang looked at him and asked with a smile, “Did those people come to find Brother Yongshun?”
Su Yongshun chuckled, “Siter Tang and Brother Nuo were the ones who were wronged first, so they deserved it anyway.”
It seemed that Su Tang had taken her brother to beat up some other children, which made their parents unhappy. But in the end, the adults of the children’s families really couldn’t say anything because, and this was the key to this matter, it was very clear that their children had attacked Su Nuo at first, so them getting hit back was justified.
Moreover, Su Yongshun only felt impressed. Today this eight-year-old girl had been so clever, speaking with clear reasoning against adults who were much older than her. And then after that, she took her younger brother out to beat up the children who had attacked him without saying a word.
And now those people really couldn’t say anything about it because it was just a matter of children fighting amongst themselves. There wasn’t even anyone for them to appeal to because, after all, Su Laochuan’s family only had these two children left in it and the eldest member, Su Tang, was only eight years old.
There were many children in the village and it was a common thing for the children to fight. When it happened, at most, an adult from the family of the child who felt aggrieved would go out to talk to the adults who lived with other the children involved in the fight. But there were no adults in Su Tang’s family for them to complain to, which was why several families had found Su Yongshun to ask him to come and talk with Su Tang and her brother.
But when Su Yongshun found out what Su Tang had done with her brother, his first reaction was that she really was still a child. She was so naughty that she would even go around beating people up in front of their homes.
