“That won’t happen!” Pei Xuan would never agree that the little fox could bully him. He didn’t believe this new junior sister was actually so clever. She may have a few tricks, but ultimately she was still dumb. The kind who got bullied outside but then started acting like a princess once she got home. Obviously, he was the one who had given in to her, or else she never would have had a chance to play her tricks on him.
Pei Xuan’s thoughts were written clearly on his face, and Song Yi couldn’t help but shake his head wryly.
Meanwhile, Su Tang had no idea that Song Yi and Pei Xuan were having a conversation about her as she worked. She was too busy trying to complete her task to think of anything else. After a few minutes, she looked carefully at the newly-mended sleeve of Pei Xuan’s robe and smiled, “All right, you don’t have to thank me too much!”
The orange cat, who had been lying to one side, glanced over and said, ‘What makes you think he will want to thank you?’
‘Why wouldn’t he? Are my skills not impressive enough? Anyway, I need to hurry home, Xiao Nuo should be feeling hungry by now.’ As soon as she was finished with the mending Su Tang looked around and saw it was getting late. She felt that there was no time to say any farewells, so she just left in a hurry.
A little while after that Pei Xuan came back from dinner and entered his room. He immediately saw his clothes had been laid out on the kang bed, cleaned and mended. He walked over happily and picked up the clothes, but then froze when he saw what had been embroidered into the sleeve of his robe. He shouted: “Su Tang!”
His short was especially loud so Pengmo, who had been about to finish washing, dropped everything and rushed over to see what was wrong. But when he saw the clothes in Pei Xuan’s hands, he couldn’t help but cough and choke back a laugh, “Pfft…”
“What are you laughing at?” Pei Xuan glared at him.
Pengmo tried his best to endure, but in the end, he really couldn’t. He chuckled and choked out: “The young miss’s embroidery has improved a lot!”
Pei Xuan gave brief laugh that was full of rage, “Exactly whose side are you on?”
Pengmo quickly lowered his head. He really didn’t dare to offend this little ancestor in front of him, but at the same time, he couldn’t stop himself from laughing.
Seeing Pengmo trying to choke back his laughter, Pei Xuan got even angrier and shouted, “What are you doing standing around here? Get out!”
Pengmo nodded and quickly backed out of the room. Then he turned and rushed back to the kitchen while trying to hold back his smile. Inside, he was shaking his head. When it came to narrow-mindedness, if his young miss claimed to be second in this world, no one else would dare to claim to be first ah.
Pei Xuan saw Pengmo laughing face and his hands tightened angrily on the clothing in his hands. He looked carefully and saw that the place where the sword had cut had not only been mended, but also, cotton pink thread had been used to embroider an impish looking pig onto the sleeve. The pig was small and pink, and it was twisting its buttocks in a very “magical” pose.
Not only that, the words “Pei Xuan” had been crookedly embroidered directly under the image of the pig. And while it could be said that Su Tang’s calligraphy level had somewhat improved after all these months of practice, it still couldn’t be called “good” by any stretch. The most that could be said was that the characters she embroidered could now be recognized as words.
Moreover, because she had been in such a rush, Su Tang’s stitches were particularly careless and sloppy-looking. However, the words combined with the “magical” looking pig twisting its buttocks certainly left a vivid and powerful impact when you saw them.
Pei Xuan’s eyes were burning, looking like he wanted to bore a hole into the embroidered pig with his gaze alone. The longer he looked at it, the more he felt that the pig was very tacky. His fingers curled tighter and tighter on the clothes in his hands. Eventually, Pei Xuan gritted his teeth and said, “You wait for me… little money grubber… just wait for me…”
“A-choo!” Meanwhile, Su Tang who was walking home, sneezed.
After she sneezed, Su Tang seemed to think of something and turned to look back in the direction of the Song residence with a faint smile. Then, when she turned back and started walking again, her pace became even more sprightly and brisk.
The orange cat lay silently on his master’s shoulder and shed a silent tear of sympathy for Pei Xuan. That poor two-legged beast. He could have offended anyone, but he insisted on offending his master, the dark loli that had a belly full of schemes.
Of course, after all this, Su Tang did end up taking much longer at the Song residence than usual, so when she finally made it home Zhang Cuilan and Yu Caihe had already finished cooking dinner. Su Nuo had also already come back from the academy, so when he saw his sister come home he happily invited her to sit with him at the table and they had dinner together.
Also, he didn’t know why, but Su Nuo somehow felt that his sister was in an unusually good mood today. Moreover, she was even much more gentle when instructing him on his homework after dinner.
Su Nuo had no idea, but it was all thanks to a certain little ancestor that she scolded as a pig!
