“Give me a minute and I’ll be ready to go.” Su Tang hooked her lips into a faint smile and said.
“Just a few dozen copper coins, is it worth getting up so early!” Pei Xuan snorted angrily.
He had seen the small smile playing about the corners of Su Tang’s lips and immediately knew that this little girl was laughing at him. This caused him to think of the “enchanting” pig that was still on his sleeve, and Pei Xuan couldn’t help but glare at Su Tang angrily.
She was so eager even for a few copper coins, really a little moneygrubber to her bones!
Su Tang responded by raising an eyebrow. Heh, this guy, it seemed he wanted to find trouble with her? That meant he still hadn’t learned his lesson, right?
“Young master, have you ever eaten snow?” Su Tang sent a glance over at Yu Caihe to let her know to put the things she would be needing on the road into the carriage, then turned back to Pei Xuan and asked.
Pei Xuan frowned. He couldn’t understand the meaning of Su Tang’s question but, more importantly, he didn’t like how she addressed him as “young master”, which was clearly inappropriate considering their relationship.
“I am your senior brother!” Pei Xuan couldn’t help but speak up to stress his identity. The little moneygrubber was really too unruly, she didn’t respect him as a senior brother at all even though he was six years older than her.
In fact, back when Pei Xuan was a child, he had always wanted to have a younger brother or sister to bully around the house. Unfortunately, his mother died early and after that his father, Duke Pei, had no intentions to remarry and have more children. Of course, even if he did, Pei Xuan wouldn’t have accepted such children as his siblings anyway.
Then later on, when he became Song Yi’s disciple, he was still the youngest, with no junior brothers or sisters below him. After that, he had almost given up since, after all, he knew it wasn’t easy for someone like Song Yi to accept new disciples. But then he unexpectedly decided to accept Su Tang, this little moneygrubber, as a disciple. Unfortunately, she had a very irritating personality, causing Pei Xuan to feel frustrated in his heart.
Of course, when Su Tang heard Pei Xuan emphasizing that he was her “senior brother” she smiled secretly in his heart. It seemed that, in the end, he was still a teenager, she could see through what he was thinking at a glance.
Su Tang’s lips curled into a small smile and she said, “So, what you mean to say is that you’ve never eaten snow, right? Senior bother!”
“You…” Pei Huan grunted angrily, “I’ve always eaten food properly, for what reason would I eat snow?”
“If you’ve never eaten it, it’s because someone else has been feeding you until now. All of your brocade clothing and jade-like food are given to you by the countless generals guarding at the border, men who are using their lives to resist external aggression and suffering injuries on your behalf. You only have the things you have thanks to them and, what’s more, you are also from a family of generals, so how could you be so rich and noble as to look down a few dozen copper coins?”
Su Tang directly took out some big truth bombs and dropped them on this person who didn’t learn his lesson’s head. After all, she was from the modern era and was long used to arguing with fierce opponents online so, for this greenhouse flower who had no idea how to argue, this big sister could only show her skills a bit to let him understand his own level.
“What’s wrong with a few dozen copper coins? Are a few dozen copper coins not money? Heh, the young master is so rich and noble that he despises these few dozen copper coins, but I’m just a little peasant girl. I can only apologize, I’m not so noble. Let alone a few dozen copper coins, I won’t let go of even five copper coins. I’m not worthy to have such a noble young master as my senior brother, I can only say that I’m really sorry for losing face for you!”
Su Tang’s words were very impolite. He dared to look down on her? Then she would make him feel uncomfortable to death!
Pei Xuan had only seen that Su Tang liked to make money, so he had said a few words to deliberately find fault with her. However, he hadn’t expected Su Tang to retort so fiercely, listing out points one by one and even concluding as if he had been trying to say that he looked down on her and felt she wasn’t worthy of being his junior sister. He suddenly felt choked for words.
“When did I say you aren’t worthy of being my junior sister?” Pei Xuan retorted angrily but, at the same time, his face was stained with a touch of red.
But after he said that, he immediately felt annoyed again. Why did he give in so quickly?
Su Tang naturally wouldn’t spend too much time arguing with an awkward teenager, after all, according to the age of her soul she was already an adult, and she was very mature.
The orange cat could sense what Su Tang was thinking and rolled his eyes, ‘If you’re so mature, then don’t act so proud of winning over a child!’
Su Tang: ‘Oh, you want to mind my business now?’
Still, when she saw the chagrined look on the teenager’s face, Su Tang almost couldn’t stop herself from laughing. But, in the end, she endured and said calmly, “Then, senior brother really doesn’t despise me, right? Senior brother doesn’t think it’s wrong for me to go out and earn money, right?”
Pei Xuan felt speechless and looked at her with wide eyes. Suddenly he realized that this little moneygrubber had just been acting mischievous and had tricked him again!
