Back then, when she first noticed the stalker, Su Tang had sent the orange cat to investigate. Shortly after that, she was able to find out that the person stalking her was actually one of her old acquaintances: The man she had met back then in front of Fuxing House! Way back when, Su Tang had wanted to sell fish balls to Fuxing House, but this man had stopped her at the door and humiliated her.
Of course, after that Su Tang just went and found Jiang He and started working with him instead, so she had put the matter aside for the time being. Until now, she had never even been back to that Fuxing House once.
At first, Su Tang had felt quite indignant and hadn’t wanted to set the matter down at all. After all, if this were the modern era, she would definitely have left many passionate and scathing reviews online for the restaurant’s terrible service. She would have posted whole novels of negativity and refused to take them down until the owner of the restaurant came out to personally apologize to her.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t the modern era, so this kind of method was somewhat impossible to implement. However, it was never too late for a dark loli to take revenge, and Su Tang had always kept this matter in mind.
Therefore, with this incident between them, Su Tang was a bit confused when the orange cat told her that it was this same waiter who was following her around. After all, hadn’t he been the one who had kicked her and her brother out in the first place back then? Why was he suddenly interested in them now?
After investigating a bit more, the orange cat found out that the waiter’s name was Wu Yong, but other than that he wasn’t able to find any valuable information, such as why he was following Su Tang or for what purpose. However, when she heard that last name, even though the orange cat couldn’t guess, Su Tang immediately had some ideas of her own. After all, it was a name she was very familiar with.
Meanwhile, with the Spring Festival arriving, Fuxing House had shut down for the holiday and Wu Yong had left Qinghe Town, presumably to head back to his hometown. But Su Tang, although she didn’t really have any tasks for the orange cat currently, didn’t want to have him wandering around outside to follow Wu Yong all the time. For a time, she was in a bit of a dilemma but, fortunately, with the continuous upgrades to the space, the orange cat’s ability had also managed to improve a bit.
Therefore, the orange cat had been able to plant a simple spiritual imprint on Wu Yong. This imprint had no powerful functions, but it could record the scents of the people that Wu Yong came into contact with.
Therefore, if this Wu Yong really had something to do with Madam Wu, Su Tang and Su Nuo’s stepmother, then he would definitely get Madam Wu’s scent on him when he visited her over the holidays. If that were to happen, then Su Tang would finally be able to confirm her conjecture.
And today, the sixth day of the first lunar month, Fuxing House also resumed its operations just like most other businesses in Qinghe Town, which meant that naturally Wu Yong, as a waiter working for Fuxing House, would have to come back to work. Because he was finally back in town, the orange cat was able to confirm through the imprint that the latter really had come into contact with Madam Wu.
“That’s interesting. So it was Madam Wu who asked him to stalk me. I wonder what she wants to do?” Su Tang smiled coldly. Though she phrased it like a question, there was no doubt in her heart that Madam Wu was trying to find trouble for her.
But she still wasn’t certain about some things. What exactly could be the reason for Madam Wu to send her family members to spy on Su Tang like this? Was she just hoping that he would be able to coincidentally find some of Su Tang’s flaws if he followed her around for long enough? Or was there some other purpose?
This kind of little thing was actually really troublesome, and Su Tang frowned. She had a lot of work to do these days, and she didn’t have time to deal with her stepmother’s small antics. She pondered for a moment before a solution came to her. She turned to the orange cat and asked: ‘Do you know who the local ruffians and hooligans in Qinghe Town are? Also, do you know where they would usually be?’
As the orange cat listened to his master’s voice, he felt it was light and ethereal as usual, but this time there was an icy chill beneath her words.
A certain Divine Beast inadvertently cowered down a little even as he reaffirmed his strong pledge to never cross this small master of his in this lifetime. After a moment, his large blue eyes blinked and he replied in a flattering tone, ‘I’ve heard of some such people. It’s said that there is a man called Pockmarked Zhang who can accomplish any job, so long as there is money.’
Internally, the orange had begun to suspect that there was some fundamental problem with the script when he had crossed over this time. Was this how the heroine who received a powerful golden finger was supposed to behave? But, in the end, he could only sigh and bear with it. At any rate, his master had never had any moral bottom line from the beginning, it was too late for him to start complaining now!
Meanwhile, Su Tang decided to take advantage of the orange cat’s love for gossip, and she asked him a few more questions to confirm a few more things.
Once she was done interrogating him, she managed to confirm a suitable candidate. That done, Su Tang quickly began to put her plan into action. She headed over to a clothing store and bought herself a set of men’s clothing that fit her and carried it away. Once she reached the edge of town where no one else was around, she abruptly disappeared into her space.
A few moments later, a beautiful young man dressed in man reappeared in the spot where Su Tang had disappeared from, Of course, it was Su Tang herself in disguise!
Seeing her dashing new look, as a good lackey, the orange cat immediately began to fawn on Su Tang and cheer her on, “Wow, master is so great! Master is so handsome! Master is the most handsome in the world!”
