The orange Divine Beast was currently full of dissatisfaction and complaints, but then Su Tang sent him a look and he immediately surrendered. He could only sadly cover his face with his paws, heart full of regret and more regret.
When other Divine Beasts found their masters they would get people who were like dumplings that, at most, had a few black sesame seeds sprinkled on top. So why was his dumpling actually pitch black through and through, without the faintest trace of light in her heart? The world was really too terrible wuwuwu…!
Seeing the orange cat cowering down, Su Tang smirked and shifted her eyes to look outside. At the same time, she noticed the orange cat shaped marking on her wrist was actually cowering down with its paws over its head too, and she couldn’t help but laugh.
Anyway, with this Su Tang more or less understood everything that had happened the previous night, and she quickly readjusted her mindset. After all, what was done was done. There was no point in whining about it afterward, it wasn’t like complaining could change anything. As a human, her eyes were on the front of her head, so obviously she needed to only keep looking forward.
That morning, Huang Daxing, the owner of Fuxing House, was just now noticing that Wu Yong seemed to have failed to show up for work today, and he cursed the other party a few times under his breath. But other than that he wasn’t too alarmed, Wu Yong was only a waiter, so even if he didn’t show up Huang Daxing could still open his business as usual.
Meanwhile, a bit earlier in the day, Wu Yong had been found by another man from his village. Since they were both from the same village, when the man saw Wu Yong lying down covered with blood and with his clothes in tatters, he hurriedly rushed off to gather up some people and together they took Wu Yong to the Qinghe Town clinic.
Pockmarked Zhang had been very brutal in his attack. After the doctor examined Wu Yong carefully for a while he could only conclude that Wu Yong’s legs had been permanently crippled and he wouldn’t be able to stand up anymore for the rest of his life. When they got this news, the people who had brought him to the doctor returned to the village to report the news to the Wu family. Of course, after getting this news, the Wu family all fell into a panic.
From the beginning, the Wu family had never been a wealthy family. In fact, back then they had been so poor that they couldn’t even find a wife for their son, so they had been forced to sell their daughter as a servant girl to a rich family in town. Luckily, Wu Guixiang had adjusted well and had been able to please her mistress well while working as a servant girl and received various rewards on top of her monthly stipend. However, it still took her some years to earn enough money to buy back her slave contract and return to her old household with the belongings she had accumulated while working for the rich family.
And it was around this time that Su Dafu’s wife died. Wu Guixiang was already in her twenties and unmarried, so she took a fancy to the recently widowed Su Dafu. At the same time, Su Dafu was also interested and used his old skills at coaxing girls to get closer to Wu Guixiang and, in the end, she married him as his second wife.
Wu Yong’s good job at the Fuxing House was also thanks to Madam Wu. During her time as a servant girl she had pleased her mistress and her mistress had agreed to help her do this small thing for her brother. Thus, it could be said that over the past few years the Wu family had only been able to live a good life thanks Wu Guixiang’s help.
However, Wu Guixiang had already gotten married, which meant that the Wu family’s current primary source of income was just Wu Yong. So today, when they suddenly heard that Wu Yong’s legs had been broken and he was going to be permanently crippled, they were all terrified and wondering what they were going to do in the future?
Because of this, the whole family was in a miserable mood, as if dark clouds had settled over their household. In the end, they decided to hurriedly send someone over to consult their smart daughter who had already married out about what to do.
Meanwhile, Madam Wu had originally asked her brother to help her keep an eye on Su Tang because of the news she had heard from Chen Xiuxiu about Su Tang getting close to the servant boy from a wealthy family. And Wu Yong’s reports seemed to have been confirming this piece of news, so she had just been waiting for the right opportunity to expose Su Tang’s true face.
After all, Su Tang was going around highhandedly talking about properly observing filial piety for her new stepfather these days, so what would happen if it were revealed that she was hooking up with a boy outside at the same time? Obviously, if Su Yongqiang still had the slightest trace of impartiality left in him, he would find this completely unacceptable as well, and for not observing her womanly virtues Su Tang’s only fate would be to be drowned in the pig cage. Madam Wu felt quite confident in her plot and didn’t see any way for the little brat to weasel her way out of things this time.
But the result ended up being quite different from what she expected. Although she felt her plan was good, something suddenly happened to Wu Yong midway, messing everything up. As soon as she received the news, Madam Wu found her mother-in-law Madam Zhao and asked for some money so she could go to town and visit Wu Yong. Of course, given the old woman’s personality, as soon as she heard Madam Wu mentioning money Madam Zhao was completely unwilling to give.
With no other way, Madam Wu could only go and find Su Yonggui for help. In the end, her father-in-law was slightly more reasonable and ended up telling Madam Zhao to give Madam Wu some money so she could go visit her injured brother. However, it was only after some twists and turns. After all, Su Yonggui had secretly started having some reservations in his heart about this eldest daughter-in-law of his ever since he had heard the exchange between Madam Wu and Su Tang back during the new year. Su Tang had hinted that Madam Wu had some sort of secret, and Madam Wu had immediately backed down, it was very suspicious.
