Su Nuo pondered her words for a long moment before slowly nodding. Indeed, his sister tended to act a little differently when facing outsiders compared to when she was facing her family members or Brother Luo. His sister, when compared to others, was, how to say… a bit of a distant person.
“Therefore, Xiao Nuo, always remember that whether your sister is being respected or not is based on my own inner feelings, not some rules made up by outsiders or anything else. Your Big Brother Luo was just joking around with me just now, moreover, he loves me just like I love him, but it’s the same kind love like between siblings. For instance, you love me too, right?”
Su Tang turned a bit serious to properly explain her relationship with Luo Xingchen to her brother. At the same time, Su Nuo immediately nodded decisively and replied, “Love, I definitely love you. My only family in the world is you, sister.”
Su Tang reached out and patted his head, “Well, your big sister here loves you too. But your big sister also loves Brother Luo the same way you love me, and your big sister loves the both of you the same, but not anyone else. Anyway, just remember that. “
“So Brother Luo is also part of our family?” When it came down to it, small children couldn’t keep up with anything too complex. Thus, to Su Nuo’s ears, this was basically Su Tang saying that Luo Xingchen was also part of their family.
“En, you can just treat him just like a real brother. Therefore, it was you that misunderstood him when you said that Brother Luo is a bad person. In reality, Brother Luo was just joking around with me, so you should apologize to him. And, in the future, you should carefully look at a person before deciding if they are good or bad. Don’t just immediately jump to conclusions, do you understand?”
Su Tang spoke so much but Su Nuo only vaguely understood that Luo Xingchen could be considered as a real brother, so he apologized to him sheepishly, “I’m sorry Brother Luo, I shouldn’t have called you a bad person.”
Luo Xingchen looked at the little guy who was suddenly acting so well-behaved after a few words and couldn’t help but lament. Although this little guy seemed a little mediocre compared to that demon, Su Tang, he was actually quite clever. After all, a demon was called a demon because it was something rarely encountered, and one demon in a family was more than enough.
“It’s fine, it’s fine. In fact, your Brother Luo here has never disrespected your sister. On the contrary, your sister is probably the woman I admire most in the world.” Luo Xingchen replied.
“Brother Luo should always talk respectfully like this about my sister in the future as well! You shouldn’t be rude or unreasonable anymore!” Although the little guy reluctantly decided to drop the topic and apologize because he always listened to his sister, he still felt that he had to protect his sister no matter what so he added a few more words.
Luo Xingchen smiled and promised, “Ok, I understand.”
Having secured Luo Xingchen’s promise, Su Nuo finally nodded with satisfaction. Meanwhile, Su Tang realized that keeping the little guy around any further would probably delay their business, so she said, “You still haven’t finished today’s homework yet. Go and do it now and I will come to check it for you after I finish talking to Brother Luo.”
Su Nuo heard that and immediately turned to look over at Luo Xingchen, who was smiling back at him gently, then he looked at his sister, who was also giving him a faint smile, so he could only pout, “Alright, but big sister, you can’t come over too late. You must check it before I go to bed.”
“En!” Su Tang nodded.
After that, the little guy really went back to his room to work on his studies.
When he left, Luo Xingchen let out a sigh and said, “The two of you have such a nice relationship. Not like me and my two sisters at all, ah!”
“Wealth and honor can capture a person’s heart and cause them to forget the importance of familial affection.” Su Tang sighed along with her friend. Indeed, wealth could make a family rich and honorable, but it could also cause the members to be mired in filth.
“Heh, that sounds about right but, in the end, I don’t believe it.” Luo Xingchen murmured a retort.
Money was just money, what could be wrong with having more of it? This issue was caused by the people themselves losing their human hearts.
“Well, isn’t it just human nature? That’s the way things are.” Su Tang smiled.
“But we won’t be like that.” Luo Xingchen suddenly looked up and spoke in an unprecedentedly serious tone that was somehow mixed with a trace of her own stubbornness.
Su Tang was dazed for a moment by her friend’s declaration. Finally, she replied slowly, “I hope so.”
“It will be so, so long as we put in the effort.” Luo Xingchen stared directly into Su Tang’s eyes and said.
