Su Tang understood that the orange cat was comforting her and, of course, she also knew that what he was saying was the truth.
This was why the orange cat was able to coldly watch from the side when Pockmarked Zhang was breaking Wu Yong’s legs. Although Su Tang often said he was a Foodie Cat who only knew how to eat, he was still at least a genuine Divine Beast. Maybe he didn’t have the power to do too much, but if it was just saving one person he could have done it fairly easily.
But the orange cat hadn’t done that. Instead, after confirming the situation, he chose to follow Pockmarked Zhang and pass him the two silver taels.
And that was because, as the Divine Beast who was the guardian of her space, he needed to always first think of how to protect Su Tang. Besides Su Tang, the life and death of all other creatures had no meaning to the orange cat.
He felt like Su Tang already understood, but he still wanted to say it out and let her know that she really hadn’t done anything wrong.
Then, as if knowing that his master was already in a good mood again, the orange cat buried his head in his plate and continued to eat fish balls. Another dialogue bubble popped up: ‘Tut-tut, I really have to say, the way you two-legged beasts love to kill each other is too brutal!’
“I don’t think you know much about true brutality!” As those words fell, the orange cat suddenly felt a hand catching him by the scruff of his neck.
He quickly retracted his claws and tried to rub up against Su Tang to please her, ‘Of course, master isn’t such a two-legged beast! Master is probably the only kind, lovely, and intelligent two-legged beast in the whole world, completely different from those other ones.”
Inside, he sighed. Why had he ever chosen this master? After sleeping for hundreds of years he must have gotten water in his brain! In the whole world, which Divine Beast would ever be treated this way? His life was really too difficult.
The orange cat could only spout words of flattery while secretly shedding tears inside. His master this time was just too dark. If he didn’t say enough good words he may never be released wuwuwu…
Listening to the ‘Divine Beast’s’ pitiful meowing, Su Tang raised him up so they could look at each other eye to eye and asked, “Are you sure about that?”
“Yes I’m sure, very sure! Master is a rare and outstanding person that can only be born once every a hundred years.” New dialogue bubbles flew up from the orange cat’s head one after another.
This little flatterer! Su Tang rolled her eyes. But, seeing that the orange cat’s eyes were full of nothing but flattery and more flattery, she decided to set him down.
Seeing the delicious fish balls and milk porridge in front of him, the orange cat decided to swallow down his tears. After all, what was pride really worth? His master’s cooking was really irresistible ah!
Watching from the side, Su Tang couldn’t help but snort. What kind of Divine Beast could so perfectly show the face of a greedy cat? Then she looked over at the clock and noticed that it was nearly dawn outside the space.
“Anyway, this task wasn’t completed perfectly. You ended up spending two taels of silver on top of my initial deposit of a hundred copper coins, despite the estimated budget only being three hundred copper coins. This is a serious over-expenditure, so let’s start losing weight from today, my meowing Divine Beast!”
“Wait, what?” The orange Cat lifted his big face up from the delicious foods in front of him. Did he just hear that right?
For a dark loli, it could be said that not letting herself suffer was important, and getting revenge was also important, but nothing was more important than making money! Now that a certain Divine Beast had unexpectedly wasted her funds, how could she just let it go?
“You didn’t hear me? Do you want me to repeat myself?” The orange cat looked up and saw a certain smile on his master’s face, and he could almost see the pair of little black wings flapping behind her back.
“It’s getting late, my beautiful and kind master, would you like to get some sleep for now?” He quickly changed the topic. What about a Divine Beast’s face? What was that? This living environment was too terrible, it could only quickly change its face to survive!
“You’re so sweet. But after you finish eating, you should run two laps around Qinghe Town. Just look at how flabby you are, if I didn’t know better I would think you were a meatball.’ The dark loli, whose ire had been provoked, pinched the orange cat’s ear and spoke in an extremely gentle tone.
Could he refuse? Hadn’t his master ever heard of the magnificent large orange cat breed? Could orange cats still be called orange cats if they weren’t a little heavy?
A certain Divine Beast decided to admit to being a cat in order to avoid exercise.
