Zhang Cuilan heard Luo Xingchen’s request and turned to Su Tang for confirmation. Su Tang nodded.
Seeing that, Zhang Cuilan saluted and pledged, “Then this maidservant will leave first.”
Luo Xingchen also nodded, but when she saw Zhang Cuilan was still holding a food box in her hands, she quickly said, “This food box should be for your young miss, right? Give it to me, I’ll hold it for her.”
Zhang Cuilan was happy to see Luo Xingchen acting so attentive to her young miss, so she easily handed over the food box.
Su Tang rolled her eyes. However, since Luo Xingchen was already here, she knew she wouldn’t be able to go see Song Yi right away anyway, so she didn’t make any objections. She just turned to Zhang Cuilan and said, “Go back and tell Ms. He to prepare another set of cakes and tea for me to take with me when I go to the Song residence later on, I’ll be using this set she already made now I’m afraid.”
Zhang Cuilan nodded and said, “Understood!”
Then, when she saw that Su Tang had no other instructions, she turned and left with the Luo family servants.
Meanwhile, Su Tang led Luo Xingchen deeper into the courtyard. Once she pushed open the door to the main hall, she turned and told Madam Zhang, “Go to the kitchen and fetch us two teacups.”
The structure of this courtyard was actually very simple, so even without someone to show her around Madam Zhang could easily tell where the kitchen was. Thus, she quickly responded: “Yes!”
Luo Xingchen carried the food box and followed Su Tang into the main hall and then set it on the table beside her. Then she asked, “Why did you buy these kind of people for yourself again? They don’t seem very clever.”
“I didn’t buy them for me, but for you!” Hearing her ungrateful tone, Su Tang immediately shot back.
“What do you mean for me? What do they have to do with me? I’ve never seen them before, but you still say bought them for me?” Luo Xingchen replied while rolling her eyes. This Su Tang was always trying to trick her.
“You can’t do this to me, TangTang, my Tang’er.” Luo Xingchen continued in an aggrieved tone. She really had nothing to do with these people, ah.
It wasn’t the first time Su Tang had seen her friend like this, so she just coldly watched her act for a while before interjecting: “They’re your enemies.”
“Huh, what did you say?” Luo Xingchen had expected Su Tang would say some sort of joke or something, but unexpectedly it was something completely different. She almost thought she was there was something wrong with her ears.
“Didn’t you ask me: ‘What do they have to do with you? Why would I buy them?’ So I answered you!” Su Tang slowly repeated herself, “Those two, they are your enemies.”
Luo Xingchen was dumbfounded. “TangTang, I don’t think I’ve offended you recently, right?!”
She hadn’t offended her, so why was Su Tang trying to trick her in such a ridiculous way? She was more prone to believe that Su Tang had some grudge against her and was playing tricks than that two random people she had never seen were her enemies.
“I don’t know them at all.” Luo Xingchen finally said directly. She didn’t know them, so how could they be enemies, ah!
“Well, isn’t that a coincidence? Actually, I went out to do some work on my farms these days, and I just so happened to meet those two, who told me that they had a grudge against you because of all the terrible things you’ve done to them.”
“Of course, you and I can at least be considered acquaintances, so I decided I couldn’t just let people run around outside ruining your reputation like that, so I bought them and brought them back to give to you to deal with.”
“After all, we’re friends, so you don’t have to thank me too much. With our relationship, it should suffice if you give me a hundred taels or so.”
Su Tang’s words flowed out easily in a casual tone. Luo Xingchen’s eyes widened and she stared at Su Tang incredulously, “Ah, I knew you were evil, but I didn’t expect you to be so evil!”
Don’t even mention whether those people were really her enemies or not, but Su Tang just casually opened her mouth and the matter suddenly turned into something worth a hundred taels of silver? And that “low price” was because they were already friends? This girl was way too ruthless! Luo Xingchen felt she could only bow down in front of her scheming mind.
Of course, Su Tang hadn’t gone into much detail, but they were both smart people. Moreover, this wasn’t the first time Luo Xingchen had encountered something like this. Only a moment had passed but she had already understood the key points, “Their enemy should be “Second Young Master Luo” from the Luo family of Beikou?”
“Congratulations Young Master Luo, you’ve really been on the rise this year, but there’s still been no decline in your IQ. Congratulations!” Su Tang clapped her hands and “congratulated” her.
Luo Xingchen almost vomited blood. Su Tang, ah, have you always treated other people this way since birth?
