Although Mrs. Li felt a bit of sympathy for Yang Dani and the hard life she had lived so far, the truth was that most of the people she sold had hard lives. However, she was also worried that Yang Dani would probably be a bit difficult to sell as a wife or a concubine since she had an adverse fate. Most people who could afford to buy a wife wouldn’t want to buy one that had such an issue.
But at the same time, although Yang Dani wasn’t an overly beautiful woman, she looked good enough, so she might not actually be that hard to sell off. Either way, Mrs. Li had only brought her along this time as sort of tagalong to Mrs. Wang.
After all, she didn’t want anyone to say that she didn’t do her work as the owner of a slave shop diligently and thoroughly. Su Tang had given her a list of requirements so she had found a woman that met those requirements, and then to be thorough, she had found another one. That way, even if Su Tang didn’t want to buy one, she could still buy the other, and Mrs. Li would at least be showing her client that she was doing her work properly, right?
Hearing Mrs. Li recommending her, Mrs. Wang looked up at Su Tang with expectation. After all, when she came in just now she had also seen Baohe, the little girl wearing neat and clean new clothes without even a single patch. From what she knew, only the girls who came from well-off families would be able to wear such clean and new-looking clothes so, of course, she wanted Su Tang to buy her so she could experience the same treatment.
Meanwhile, when Yang Dani heard Mrs. Li’s words, she just pursed her lips, glanced at Su Tang, and didn’t say anything further.
Su Tang looked at her and asked, “So do you think you have an adverse fate?”
Hearing that question, Yang Dani seemed to feel Su Tang had been scared off by this bad reputation and lost all of her expectations. Since her expectations were crushed, she decided to just candidly speak her thoughts: “Heh, if I really had an adverse fate, wouldn’t I have killed that stepmother of mine? How could I kill my father who was always good to me?”
“What really happened is obvious. That woman deliberately chose a weak and sickly man for me each time she was picking an engagement so, naturally, they all died before we could get married.”
“As for what happened to my father, it’s obviously just because she’s so lazy and always wanted good food. My father died in an accident because he was overworking himself every day in order to satisfy her desires, it had nothing to do with me. “
When Mrs. Li saw Yang Dani was getting upset and talking randomly, she sent the girl a series of anxious winks trying to get her to shut up. After all, this one wasn’t like the Bai girl last time who would be really hard to sell no matter what. In fact, she knew of a certain master who was looking for a concubine to give birth to a boy for him, and Mrs. Li was hopeful that he might be willing to buy this Yang Dani.
However, now Yang Dani was being too rash. Even if she had given up on being bought by Su Tang, she still shouldn’t be saying these sorts of things that tarnished her own reputation and lowered her value, so Mrs. Li cut in: “Why don’t you shut up? Is that the sort of thing you should be saying to the young miss?”
Su Tang looked at Yang Dani’s stubborn expression with interest. “Do you feel very unconvinced?”
“En, I feel unconvinced. It’s clear that I’m not the one who harmed anyone, so why does everyone blame me? I clearly tried to live well and upright, but in the end, everything becomes my fault and no one is willing to listen to my explanations.”
“I only want to work hard and try to live a better life now, but I know the young miss must already hate me for my adverse fate so it’s useless for me to speak any further.”
“However, I really want to say that I don’t have any so-called adverse fate. I haven’t done anything wrong and, actually, I can do very well and I’m not any worse than any of those girls from other families. “
In the modern era, a 22-year-old girl would have probably still been in college and not yet really started their adult life, but in this ancient era, such a girl was already considered an old spinster who would never be able to get married that would be gossiped about by the people around her. But this Yang Dani didn’t seem to be afraid of that sort of gossip and, instead, she was still stubbornly wanting to ask the world what exactly she did wrong and why she had to face these sorts of difficulties.
“She’s the one. How much do you want for her?” Having heard Yang Dani speak to this point, Su Tang gave a smile and directly asked Mrs. Li for a price.
Mrs. Li was shocked, “Miss Su, you really want to buy Yang Dani?”
Mrs. Li really couldn’t understand Su Tang’s criteria for buying people. After all, the Bai girl from before had also acted stubborn and headstrong, but Su Tang hadn’t seemed interested in buying her at all. But now that it was Yang Dani’s turn and the girl and rushed out and said all sorts of things, Su Tang unexpectedly wanted to buy her?
Of course, since even Mrs. Li was startled, both Mrs. Wang and Yang Dani seemed to be in complete disbelief. Yang Dani couldn’t help but raise her head and look at Su Tang with a dumbfounded expression.
