Su Tang put on a serious expression and nodded very firmly after she finished speaking. Pei Xuan couldn’t help but reflect and he began to feel there might be some truth in Su Tang’s words.
On the side, the orange cat shook his head and sighed: ‘Look at this ah, he was tricked so badly he’s become muddleheaded. Sure enough, beautiful two-legged beasts all have no brains. They’re completely different from us four-legged beasts, who are not only cute and beautiful, but also very smart. Indeed, four-legged beasts are still the best…’
Su Tang had to desperately resist the impulse to roll her eyes at the orange cat. This guy who only knew how to act pitiful really dared to say that he was very smart? It was enough to make a person laugh out loud.
Unfortunately, Su Tang was still busy tricking her senior brother so she had no time to clean up the orange cat. Instead, she reached up and patted the young man on his shoulder before saying solemnly, “Therefore, you should never doubt yourself. If you ever feel doubts, remind yourself of whose disciple and whose senior brother you are. You must always firmly believe that you are not a pig. Even if others say you are a pig, even if they say it so much that you begin to think you really may be a pig, you still have to tell yourself that you are not a pig no matter what.”
“You must remember it and remember it strongly. Anyway, let’s hurry up and get going!” Su Tang’s tone was completely earnest and sincere and she sounded completely serious.
Inside, Su Tang couldn’t help but feel it was a waste that she had never joined one of those pyramid schemes in her previous life, she really could have made a fortune. Unfortunately, her own bottom line and morals prevented her. It was really a waste of her unexpected talent for brainwashing…
Before anyone noticed what was going on, the topic had changed from Pei Xuan’s initial accusation that Su Tang had called him a pig, to the topic of whether Pei Xuan was a pig or not.
Pei Xuan couldn’t help but follow along the twisted path Su Tang’s words had laid out before him and the whole problem became muddled in his mind without any accidents. Of course, this was all to be expected. After all, even Song Yi, that wily old fox who had lived half his life in the imperial court, would sometimes have trouble grasping the key point when Su Tang’s brain began turning and her mouth began moving. How could an ordinary person have any chance?
The key point was that, although Su Tang’s expression was always very sincere every time she began to trick people, the truth was that the second you started believing her words it meant you had already fallen into the pit.
Su Tang quickly climbed back up into the carriage, and Jiang Hong and Niu’er followed behind her. A moment later, the wheels of the carriage began to turn and they all started heading to the next destination.
However, they didn’t get very far before Su Tang, who was sitting happily in the carriage, suddenly heard a voice roar: “Su Tang!”
After being muddled for a moment, Pei Xuan had jumped onto his horse and galloped over again. What ‘even if you begin to think you really may be a pig, you still have to tell yourself that you are not a pig?’ That little money grubber was clearly saying that he was a pig!
Even if she was stupid, she still knew how to deceive him! He definitely wouldn’t let her off this time!
But when he finally arrived at the side of the carriage, he found Su Tang sitting inside and looking out at him leisurely with squinted and smiling eyes.
“Su Tang!” Pei Xuan angrily gritted his teeth.
Su Tang saw the young man’s angry expression and blinked innocently, “Heh, it seems you’re a bit angry, but do you have the ability to fool me back?”
“You… just wait for me!” Pei Xuan grunted angrily. He glared at Su Tang, this little money grubber, this small villain, and vowed in his heart that he would never let her off.
“Well, I’ll wait to see how senior brother takes care of me in the future.” Su Tang saw his uncomfortable expression and her mood, which had been a bit low because of the disappointing first property they had looked at, turned much better all of a sudden.
Sure enough, whenever she was unhappy it was best for her to bully others. It seemed that she had the type of constitution where when she saw other people unhappy, she would become happier.
The orange cat, who was lying on the roof of the carriage and enjoying the wind, could sense his master’s mood somewhat and couldn’t help but comment, ‘Tsk, tsk, this dark loli has bad tastes!’
After that, Pei Xuan continued to fume angrily, but he still followed the carriage all the way to their next destination, a plot of land that was relatively close to Qingshui Town.
Su Tang almost teased him a bit more, but in the end, she restrained herself. After all, what if she really annoyed him so much that he was no longer willing to accompany her to practice her archery? Wouldn’t she be the one losing out if that happened?
This time, the location Jiang Hong brought them to was in line with Su Tang’s requirement of being close to the riverside, but he hadn’t ever actually seen it before. As everyone came down from the carriage, they couldn’t help but look around uncertainly.
Before anyone else said anything, Pei Xuan couldn’t help but blurt out: “Can you really call such a place a workshop?”
In front of them, they found that the “workshop” was very dilapidated and looked to be mostly collapsed. Instead of saying that this was a workshop, it might be better to say that it was an empty plot of land that happened to be next to the fast-flowing Qing River. In the background, the river roared loudly as it rattled past and threw up a constant white spray over the small plot of land.
