And that was the reason why Su Tang said all of this to Su Yongshun. Of course, when the Su family members heard Su Tang mention ‘what kind of life they had been living at their old home’, they all nodded along. They obviously knew what kind of life they had been living.
“En, we all understand what you mean Aunt Tang, we know what kind of life you two had.” Su Yongshun said solemnly. In the past, he had never said anything about this matter because, as an outsider to Su Yonggui’s family, he wasn’t really qualified to comment. However, now that Su Tang and her brother had already left that family he no longer had to be so restricted.
Su Tang nodded along. “Anyway, because of everything that happened before I’m still not too familiar with the other members of the Su family. Of course, I’ve spent a lot of time with Brother Qiang and Brother Shun since then, so I trust you all. If Brother Shun or sister-in-law have anyone they want to recommend for this job, please feel free.”
“For the time being, we’re planning to give the job to around five families total, so we’ll need that many people. Of course, it’s also fine if they don’t want to take the job, after all, Xiao Nuo and I both have an adverse fate, to the point that even the River God would not accept us, so if anyone is worried about being affected, there’s no need for them to force themselves.”
Su Tang really wasn’t that familiar with the people of the Su family but she intended to use them for this job anyway. However, she also wanted to firmly make her attitude clear with them. She wasn’t interested in hiring a bunch of people who would come and happily eat from her bowl, but who would then put down their chopsticks and start cursing her behind her back. She wasn’t that much of a pushover, okay?
Since Su Tang was giving these people a way to make money, they should at least be able to give her a sincere thank you. She didn’t want for it to become them all thinking that she owed them something, she wasn’t that kind.
Su Yongshun and Madam Qin were overjoyed to hear that Su Tang wanted them to help her select which people to hire. After all, it was a good thing to pass favors to their own people, they were all family anyway. Plus, many of the Su family members had their homes nearby and often helped each other, the same way Su Yongshun and Su Tang had been close neighbors before.
Hearing all this, Su Yongshun and Madam Qin exchanged glances before looking back at the little girl who was sitting in the head seat of the main room. She was obviously a bit taller and healthier-looking compared with the time she had temporarily stayed in their house, and she was wearing a simple and neat white cotton-padded coat with her hair up in a double-ring bun. Despite the quality of her clothes improving, she was still clearly adhering to the rules of her mourning period.
However, with her bearing and temperament, she no longer had much resemblance to the little Dani that they had known back in Sujia Village. Just how much ability did she have for her to talk about such a big business with a big businessman despite her small age, ah?
Naturally, Su Tang could see the silent communication going on between the two, but she didn’t mind it. She never cared what other people thought of her. In fact, she had always been strong ever since she had arrived in this era, but back when she was living in Sujia Village she had spent most of her time inside and basically didn’t go out, so most other people only had the impression of her as a pitiful girl who had been sent as a sacrifice to the River God.
“We understand what you’re saying. With such a good money-making business, it’s good of you to still think of our people in the Su family, even though some people in the Su family have acted unprincipled and mistreated you before.” Su Yongshun said.
Su Tang nodded, “I know that Brother Shun and Brother Qiang are not such people, and I believe in you. Thus, I will also believe in the people you recommend. Of course, this matter still won’t start until next spring, so there’s no hurry!”
Hearing Su Tang say that she believed in him and his family, Su Yongshun nodded with a smile. After all, they definitely weren’t the same kind as Su Yonggui.
Thus, Su Tang casually managed to solve the matter with Chen Xiuxiu and dump it onto Wang Changhe’s head, and sold it all to Su Yonghun’s family as a good thing.
On one side, the orange cat trembled. ‘What a terrible two-legged beast master is!’
For this Divine Beast who was suddenly complaining about his master, or put another way, who was seeking death, Su Tang was too lazy to care about him.
“Anyway, I’ll be heading back to Sujia Village after the new year to talk carefully with Brother Qiang about this matter, so please try to pick some reliable families before then and let us know.” Su Tang ended the topic there. After all, this was all still distant stuff so there was no need to worry too much about it right now.
