By doing this, Song Yi showed that he was fair to his two disciples in his own way. And indeed, when he heard what Song Yi said, Pei Xuan sent Su Tang a proud glance before leaving the room to get his wound bandaged in an arrogant manner.
Seeing all this, Su Tang just wore a faint smile and didn’t say anything to refuse to mend his clothes.
After Pei Xuan left the study, Song Yi shook his head and looked over at Su Tang wryly, “You little fox, you only met him just now, what are you teasing him for?”
Usually this disciple of his seemed very mature, so why did she suddenly decide to start deliberately bullying Pei Xuan the second she met him?
Su Tang pouted her lips, “Who asked him to look down on me, huh?”
“You vengeful little fox!” Song Yi exclaimed with a smile. Inside, he couldn’t help but shake his head. Su Tang usually seemed very open-minded, but it seemed she was still a child at the end of the day. It was normal for children to have a bit of temper which could manifest as holding grudges and so on.
But Song Yi also could tell that although Su Tang was deliberately trying to anger Pei Xuan and mess around with him, there wasn’t any real malice in her actions. That was why he just quietly stood to the side and watched on.
Su Tang snorted, “Master is too partial to him.”
Song Yi raised his eyebrows, “Don’t be heartless, little fox. I’m not biased at all.”
“When I made him angry, you forced me to make delicious food for him and mend his clothes, but when he made me angry, master didn’t say anything.” Su Tang retorted. She was the type to record every new grudge down in the little notebook in her heart, so she remembered clearly!
Song Yi really shook his head this time, “You girl, you really can’t bear to eat a loss!”
Then he calmed down and continued, “Anyway, it’s not easy for him. You’re already so smart, so just give in to him a little bit.”
Su Tang smacked her lips, “Master, if not for me giving in to him, do you think he could escape from my hands so easily? Would he be able to just roll his beautiful eyes and walk away like that?”
Heh, when she, this dark loli, didn’t let her opponents see the devil wings sprouting from behind her back she was already being kind enough! Finally, she snorted and said, “It’s not easy to raise up someone so sheltered.”
“Well, it’s also because he’s so sheltered that it’s hard for him to accept some things.” Song Yi said slowly.
Su Tang wore a faint smile and said, “Even if he can’t accept it, he will have to face it eventually. Keeping him so sheltered may be cruelty in the end. After all, everyone has to grow up sometime.”
It really was a bit ridiculous in Su Tang’s eyes. A young man who was so sheltered that he could freely run away just because he felt a bit unhappy with his father and then get angry when his father’s men came to bring him back. Moreover, even after all that he was still able to rashly run away again.
Of course, this was also the simplicity and enthusiasm of youth.
Su Tang couldn’t help but look over at the door Pei Xuan had just disappeared through and purse her lips. Unfortunately, the cruel reality of the world was that it was always to take those beautiful yet ignorant scenes and tear them apart.
“Still, whenever I see him I always feel it would be better if I could just let him stay like this.” Song Yi sighed.
In fact, Song Yi was well aware that Su Tang’s heart had been wounded by her family. In that place, there had been no one to protect her, and he was aware of the indifference to the world that had sprouted in her heart because of it. Of course, to some extent, that indifference could be considered her self-defense mechanism, so he wouldn’t criticize.
But if he were being honest, as an elder who had always cared for the children in his tutelage, Song Yi really wished that both Su Tang and Pei Xuan could still look at the world through a childish and impulsive lens, instead of like now where Su Tang seemed so mature and indifferent to the whole world.
Fortunately, he could tell that his youngest disciple still retained a little tenderness in her heart, at least for the people that she cared about and thought of as important. In fact, he knew he couldn’t just look at how Su Tang immediately started scheming against Pei Xuan, because that was actually a sign that she accepted him. If not for her thinking of him as an important person, Pei Xuan would never have seen such a lively Su Tang.
After all, the little fox wasn’t the type who could only play these superficial tricks. She was a smart person, and if she really wanted to deal with someone she would do it without any traces left behind.
“Yeah, who wouldn’t.” Su Tang replied after a long silence.
