“That being the case we need to all abide by the rules. After these fruits are mixed properly, we need to return to making soap. I estimate that it will only be a few more days before the Luo family sends people to pick up the next shipment.” Zhang Cuilan said in a final tone. After all, it was exactly because of the fact that it wasn’t easy to live such a good life that they needed to cherish it properly. Although it was okay to chat around at home, it wasn’t good to do because speaking the same words to outsiders was absolutely forbidden.
Although Su Tang seemed to be kind and gentle from how she never treated them too harshly and how she always gave them their monthly stipends, none of them had forgotten the girl’s stern warnings. They knew that if they wanted to keep living this good life, they needed to properly abide by Su Tang’s rules, or else they definitely wouldn’t have anymore good days in the future.
‘…well, those two-legged beasts are at least smarter than the ones in Sujia Village.’ The gossipy orange cat had secretly listened in on Yu Caihe and the other’s conversation and come to report to Su Tang. In the end, those words were how he concluded the report.
Su Tang rolled her eyes and knocked the orange cat’s furry head with the book in her hand. “Do you feel Divine Beasts such as yourself are very smart by comparison?”
‘That’s right! I am a super powerful growth-type Divine Beast and Guardian, so I will only become even better and smarter in the future. I can definitely help you achieve all of your dreams and let you become a winner in life.’ The orange cat puffed himself up and retorted with a look of pride.
“Well, I’ll look forward to you developing new functions in the future then. I can’t wait to make full use of a ‘super powerful’ Divine Beast.” Su Tang reached over and patted the orange cat’s head as she replied.
The orange cat blinked its big eyes when it felt Su Tang’s hand. Huh, why did he feel like there was something off here?
“Young miss, Miss Lu has arrived!” Before the orange cat could process anything, Yu Caihe appeared and reported that Lu Wan’er had arrived.
Su Tang pulled on a cloak and was ready to go out. However, even when she had nearly reached the door and was about to go out, the orange cat was still standing there with a dazed expression.
Finally, something seemed to click, and the orange cat bared his teeth angrily, ‘You tricked me!’
What did she mean ‘developing new functions’? He was a Divine Beast, a real live Divine Beast, okay? He wasn’t some multitool that popped out with new functions and upgrades every now and then! Even if he knew his master was black-hearted this was still a little too much.
‘Even if I did, it’s not like it’s the first time, why are you acting so surprised? Anyway, I’m leaving.’ Su Tang laughed knowingly. She was well aware that a certain Divine Cat was actually very lazy.
And, sure enough, Su Tang barely finished speaking before the orange cat directly jumped up and landed on her head and shouted, ‘Let’s go!’
Su Tang was speechless. She almost wanted to reach up and pull him down. What was going on in this ‘Divine Beast’s’ head? For some reason, he recently liked to use her head as a pillow! Of course, although the orange cat looked like it had fattened up a bit since she had first met him, that was actually irrelevant. Su Tang was his master, so even if he was on her head all the time she wouldn’t feel any weight, and no one else could see him anyway.
However, having this lazy cat sleeping on her head and wagging his tail around felt very itchy on her neck and was annoying.
‘Meow! I’m not getting down!’ Reading Su Tang’s eyes, the orange cat firmly declared his intention to defend his position on top of her head.
The orange cat knew he couldn’t unbind himself from this black-hearted master, but he still wanted to regain a bit of dignity by stepping on her head every now and then.
Su Tang narrowed her eyes and snorted, “Don’t regret it then.”
This guy was even daring to play tricks on her now, it seemed he was tired of living a good life!
Seeing the glint in her eyes, the orange cat couldn’t help but shrink back and whine cutely. Why was his life so difficult? In the end, he obediently came down from Su Tang’s head and lay on her shoulders instead.
Su Tang ignored the orange cat’s cute act. Seeing he had moved to her shoulder, she felt much more comfortable, so she didn’t delay any longer and walked over to the Dessert Cafe.
However, after she made her way to the inner room of the Dessert Cafe where guests were served, she discovered that not only was there Lu Wan’er and her maid, Qing Ju, but also an unfamiliar middle-aged woman. Lu Wan’er looked very happy when she spotted Su Tang coming over.
“TangTang, I finally got to see you again. Back when I was sick I couldn’t go outside at all, and then when I was finally able to visit you were already gone!”
“When did you come back? I heard from Baohe that you had gone to the County Seat. After this, why don’t you come with me to the County Seat again? I’m going back tomorrow. I can take you to play at the County Seat, I know all the good places.”
