The days were still long. For now, Su Dafu didn’t have any concerns, but what if Wulang died? What if Madam Wu couldn’t have another son? Would Su Dafu still act so unconcerned then?
No matter how close he might be with Madam Wu, what was more important than having a son?
In this ancient era, people paid great attention to bloodlines and inheritance. So if Madam Wu was smart, she would shut her mouth and not continue this topic, or else Su Tang wouldn’t mind exposing everything. After all, she and Su Nuo were already a part of another household anyway, so she had no reason to be afraid.
A large part of the reason why Su Tang insisted on coming to pay their respects at Su Laochuan’s grave today, despite knowing she would encounter the other members of the Su family, was to clearly express her stand and her determination, lest these people from Su Yonggui’s branch have too many unrealistic dreams. She knew it would still take some time for Su Nuo to grow to the point where he could stand up on his own, so during this time she had no choice but to predict these sorts of problems and prepare for them in advance.
Madam Wu stared into Su Tang’s eyes, her mind reverberating with shock. How did this brat know her secret?! She absolutely couldn’t let this loose end wander around outside! These two brats couldn’t be kept! They had to die!
Su Tang watched as Madam Wu’s eyes went from shock to horror and finally to madness and, even without the orange cat’s help, she could clearly see the woman’s killing intent.
Look at her, it seemed that this Madam Wu had never given up her plans to kill Su Tang and her brother at all.
Of course, when she saw Madam Wu like this, Su Tang was completely unafraid and stared right back at her. After living two lives, she had no intentions to play any little games with Madam Wu. She had decided she would live a happy and wealthy life, so she wouldn’t let herself feel suffocated for a small Madam Wu.
And if Madam Wu dared to extend her claws toward her, Su Tang would be happy to break them off for her.
However, Su Tang’s words had sparked curiosity in the other people around. Not mentioning anyone else, even Su Yonggui frowned and asked, “What do you mean by that?”
But Su Tang just ignored Su Yonggui’s question. She grabbed Su Nuo and pulled him along while saying, “Anyway, we need to go pay our respects to our parents, so let’s not let these people interrupt us!”
Then she continued to educate Su Nuo, “Xiao Nuo, always remember, you don’t need to care about the pain of the people who don’t care about you. It’s not worth it at all. Also, you should remember that the people that really care about you are the people who won’t be willing to hurt you.”
Su Nuo’s eyes were still a bit red, but he nodded along with his sister, “OK, sister, I’ll remember it. I won’t care about it anymore.”
Su Tang nodded. “Good child. And remember, our parents are buried here in front of us, so we have to strive for success in the future so that they can be proud of us from up above. Let’s go!”
With that, she turned to Su Yongqiang and said, “Xiao Nuo and I need to pay our respects to our parents first, but we’ll come to visit Brother Qiang’s house a little later on.”
When Su Tang had spoken her last few sentences scolding Madam Wu, her voice was lively, forceful, and not small at all. Thus, everyone looked over at Madam Wu curiously, wanting to see how she would refute. But in the end, even when Su Tang seemed to be done speaking and planning to leave, Madam Wu still didn’t dare to say anything at all.
Naturally, most members of the Su family felt that Su Tang had spoken correctly so they didn’t interrupt. Su Yongqiang and Madam Zhou, along with their sons and their sons’ wives all nodded and agreed with Su Tang.
But Su Yonggui sensed that there was something important buried in Su Tang’s words, so he tried to ask again, “What exactly did you…”
“Su Yonggui, it was you that thought that us siblings were destined to bring ruin on your family. Since you are so afraid, just stay away from us.” Su Tang cut him off in a strong voice.
“For the past eight years, what exactly have you done to us? You should know best. Of course, for a person like you who has no conscience, you probably don’t feel you’ve done anything wrong, and you probably don’t feel sorry, but you should know that the River God is watching. The River God sees everything, and everyone will receive their just deserts in the end.”
“So don’t come and pretend in front of me, it just makes me feel disgusted!”
Of course, Su Tang had no intention to just directly inform Su Yonggui about Madam Wu’s matter. For a person like Madam Wu, having this sort of thing hanging over her head would be pure torment, and Su Tang was in no hurry to relieve her of the feeling.
Madam Wu had killed Su Dani, so the debt of that life would have to be slowly reclaimed. But the other accomplices would also have to pay the price for their actions as well!
