Lu Wan’er nodded along as she listened to Su Tang’s explanation. In fact, she had already seen that Su Tang was dressed all in plain white clothes with two little white flowers in her hair, so she had guessed that the other girl was in mourning.
So she wasn’t surprised at all by Su Tang’s revelation and just continued the topic, “Well, you really are quite skillful. This ‘cupcake’ you’ve made is really delicious, and the milk tea is delicious too.”
“Since you like it, you’re welcome to come and eat it whenever you like or even bring your friends along to eat it with you.” Su Tang directly began her pitch with a smile when she saw that the other girl was being so generous with her compliments.
Lu Wan’er continued to nod along, “En, it’s such delicious food, I need to be sure to tell my friends to come and try some too.”
As she finished saying that, she finally managed to finish both of her cupcakes. When she saw there was no more, her brows furrowed unhappily, and she turned to Su Tang: “Hm, give me two more of these cupcakes.”
Su Tang felt a bit uncertain. Although the cupcakes were small, they were still desserts, and probably two of them along with a whole pot of milk tea would be more than enough for a little girl alone. But unexpectedly, Lu Wan’er immediately asked for more after she finished eating the first two. Su Tang thought for a moment before saying, “Although these desserts are delicious, it isn’t advisable to eat too much at once. Young lady, you still have half a pot of milk tea to drink, so you might not even want more food after finishing that.”
“But I still want to eat more cupcakes.” When Lu Wan’er heard what Su Tang said, her face crinkled and she gave Su Tang an expectant look before saying in a sickly sweet voice, “Little sister, just give me two more. I’m sure I can eat them.”
In an instant, Lu Wan’er seemed to flip a switch and activate her coquettish mode and begin pouring out all sorts of cutesy tricks. Qing Ju, who was watching from the side, felt speechless for a moment before calling: “Young miss, young miss!”
Her young miss was at least the dignified daughter of a Deputy County Magistrate, ah, she shouldn’t be here trying to act cutesy in front of a little girl who was even younger than she was!
But Lu Wan’er didn’t care at all. When she saw that Su Tang was remaining silent even after her first volley, she quickly walked up to the other girl and began to tug on her sleeve while saying, “Good little sister, then just give me one more please…”
OMG. Su Tang was petrified on the spot. This was really the first time across both of her two lives that she had seen such a coquettish little girl. The worst part was that she didn’t seem awkward at all as she acted so cutesy, instead, her actions seemed sweet and natural.
Who could withstand this cuteness? Su Tang smiled helplessly and said, “Young lady, you are the guest, and I’m trying to sell goods, so if you want to buy more how can I not sell to you? It’s just that it can be bad if you eat too much sweet food at once, so I spoke up to remind the young lady.”
Right now, Su Tang had every intention to get closer to Lu Wan’er because, no matter the girl’s character, she was at least the daughter of the Deputy Magistrate. In the whole Qingyuan County she could be considered one of the noblest girls. After all, there was only one person above her father, and that was the County Magistrate himself.
Because of that, Lu Wan’er undoubtedly knew most of the wealthy and powerful families within the county and the ladies in those families, or to put it another way, she knew all of Su Tang’s potential clients. But who would have thought that Lu Wan’er had this kind of character? Su Tang had the type of character that could be described as a bit lazy and a bit cold, but now she was faced with a girl who was both excitable and warm.
She was almost feeling regret at this point. Could she take it back?
Unfortunately, but expectedly, Lu Wan’er completely ignored the complicated feelings swirling in Su Tang’s heart. Instead, having heard Su Tang’s ‘agreement’, she immediately became happy and said: “Then I’ll have two more cupcakes. Also is that toffee the same as milk tea? Whatever. Let me buy ten pieces of toffee and also two pieces of that cheesecake to take back to eat.”
She reached down to pick up her cup, finished the rest of her cup of tea in one gulp, then looked up at Su Tang, and said: “Also, good little sister, can’t you let me take out some of your cupcakes? I want to take some back to my grandma. She has bad teeth, so she’ll love this kind of soft food.”
Su Tang listened to this little girl calling her ‘good little sister’, with mixed feelings. To be honest, although she had the body of a loli, she did not have the soul of a loli, ah. Thus, being called this way by a little girl felt a bit awkward.
“Young lady, if you really want to take some cupcakes with you, it isn’t impossible. However, when you take the dish away, you’ll need to leave a deposit of two copper coins in exchange. After the cupcake had been eaten, you can come back and return the dish and I will return your deposit.”
