Su Tang knew that Pei Xuan’s thinking was a bit simple, which meant that if she directly spoke these kinds of words to him it would be impossible for him to conceal them and keep them in his heart for very long. Thus, this was the method she and her master had chosen to pass the words to the crown prince.
However, Pei Xuan himself didn’t know about any of this so, once Su Tang finished speaking, his cheeks puffed up in anger and he turned his head and started ignoring her.
Seeing this, Su Tang couldn’t help but secretly smile in her heart. Sure enough, this young man whose age was only equivalent to a boy in their second year of junior high school, was still just like a child. Meanwhile, she was already a mature adult. She would not argue with children!
The orange cat couldn’t help but blurt out: ‘Master, if you could put away your evil expression, I might believe it when you call yourself mature!’
After he finished, the orange cat only saw his master rolling her eyes at him. His knees turned weak and all of his bravery immediately disappeared, he bent down and covered his face with his paws. However, after reflecting silently for a while, he realized that he had chosen this master on his own, so he could only be said to be reaping what he had sown.
Wu wu wu, it was really too hard to be a Divine Beast these days. It was so difficult.
Su Tang looked away and ignored the cowering Divine Beast. Instead, she turned to Jiang Hong and looked at him with questioning eyes.
Of course, Jiang Hong had also noticed that his young miss and this unknown young master were quarreling so he hadn’t dared to continue speaking. But now that he saw Su Tang looking over at him, he straightened up and continued to speak:
“In addition to this plot, I also found another plot that is nearer to Qinghe Town. It’s a bit deep in the mountains so it isn’t very convenient to get there by carriage. However, the advantage is that the river there is known to be mild and the location is not very far from a port, so transporting things by water would be particularly convenient.”
Su Tang raised an eyebrow and didn’t immediately speak. Finally, she said, “Well, let’s go and have a look tomorrow.”
Jiang Hong could clearly tell that Su Tang wasn’t even considering any location that wasn’t near the river and any persuasion would be useless. Seeing that Su Tang was so determined, he decided not to say anything more on the topic.
At any rate, Jiang Hong was aware that his own vision could not compare to his young miss’s. Otherwise, why would Su Tang be able to do big business with the Luo family while he had only ever been able to run a small shop? For that reason, he had no desire to make any decisions on Su Tang’s behalf, he trusted her judgement was better than his own. This was something that Jiang Hong always kept in mind.
“Understood.” Jiang Hong nodded.
Because they had already visited two different locations, the sun was starting to set and it was too late to go and look at another one. Thus, Su Tang told Niu’er to drive the carriage over to Qingshui Town. She decided she would stay one night in this town and then keep going to look at more locations the next day.
Pei Xuan had been angered by Su Tang so he didn’t talk to her at all along the way. Su Tang saw that he was still puffing up like an angry little frog and didn’t say anything, but secretly she felt amused in her heart.
However, when she remembered the background of the young man in front of her and the trials he would soon need to face if her conjectures were right, then when she looked at his simple and honest appearance, she could only sigh deeply in her heart. People like her or Song Yi, who had many complex thoughts in their minds, cherished the kind of simplicity Pei Xuan has in his heart. Of course, unfortunately, no one could stay so simple and honest forever.
Su Tang wished that the young man in front of her could enjoy his simple days for at least a little bit longer. After all, once they were gone they would never come back.
Soon that arrived in Qingshui Town, and the four people rented a small courtyard from an inn. Once that was settled, Jiang Hong immediately left to go find something to eat, Pei Xuan sulked in the corner and didn’t say anything, and Su Tang sat down in front of the table in the center of the room and began to write and draw on a piece of paper.
Pei Xuan was, after all, still a young man, so after standing around for a while he began to feel bored. He looked over and had no idea what Su Tang was doing, so he began to feel curious. He went over to take a look but all he could see was that Su Tang was drawing something strange on the paper in front of her.
“What is this?” Eventually, Pei Xuan was unable to hold it in anymore and took the initiative to ask Su Tang.
Su Tang heard his question and looked up with a sly smile, “So you’re not angry anymore?”
“Who was angry? Hmph!” Pei Xuan immediately refuted. He was too proud to admit it.
Su Tang smiled and didn’t expose him. Indeed, she didn’t trample this young man’s last bit of pride, she was really a kind and beautiful little loli ah.
Orange Cat: …he didn’t feel anything about this situation, nothing at all!
