Of course, Song Yi also knew about Pei Xuan’s home life. He knew that Pei Xuan had no relatives or elders who could help him make clothes before this. However, now that Su Tang had reluctantly occupied the position of his “junior sister” and, what’s more, it just so happened that Su Tang was pretty good at making clothes, he decided to just let Su Tang do it.
After all, Su Tang had made two sets of clothes for Pei Xuan last time and, although Pei Xuan had said with his mouth that he wasn’t happy with them, Song Yi had been able to tell he was actually secretly happy.
Back when Song Yi talked to Su Tang, he even tried to persuade her by saying that making clothes wasn’t too difficult. But, ultimately, the main thing that persuaded her was how traveling with the young master had really brought her a lot of fun along the way.
Originally, she hadn’t been planning to tease him so much. But who asked him to always show such funny reactions?
Thus, Su Tang had no choice but to pick up her needle and thread tonight. She knew that she had to do her best to finish as quickly as possible. After all, she didn’t have much time.
When she thought of that young man, who always pretended to be serious all the time but who was actually a little silly, she really couldn’t help but tease him.
Ah, after all, she was already old. She had already become a strange auntie who liked to tease innocent little fresh meats. A certain dark loli comforted herself with the thought that, although her body was that of a loli, her heart was already that of a mature old auntie.
Pei Xuan silently watched Su Tang’s closed door for a while. She said that she was going to sleep, but even until now her light still hadn’t gone out! When he saw that, he knew that she had tricked him again. He vowed he wouldn’t go to bed before she did, so he angrily practiced his martial arts in the empty area at the center of the rented courtyard until the lights finally went out.
Niu’er and Jiang Hong were also staying in a small room in the corner of the courtyard and shivering. Although it was spring, it was still quite brisk outside and almost very like winter with how cold it was.
Jiang Hong secretly admired how his young miss dared to tease that young master. After all, that young master was obviously very scary whenever he got serious, and it was easy to tell at a glance that his identity was not simple.
Of course, if Su Tang were aware of Jiang Hong’s doubts, she would have just laughed them off and said that, although the young master seemed a bit cold and pretentious, he was really just an arrogant teenager. There was nothing much to teasing him, it was just like teasing a cat.
A certain Divine Beast: Meow, why was I suddenly shot while lying down?
Su Tang stayed up until very late making the clothes and, naturally, she heard the sound of Pei Xuan practicing martial arts out in the courtyard. She couldn’t help feel a bit amused and also a bit moved. He was out there staring at her door without rest. Despite being angry with her, he still didn’t forget to protect her.
Coupled with how he had subconsciously immediately stepped forward to stand in front of her after when they first met Jiang Hong… Su Tang sighed. She looked down at the mostly completed clothing in her hands and ruminated. Anyway, since she had already received so much of his concern, she should just do it properly.
Su Tang eventually stopped and laid down to sleep but, after resting for only two hours, she got up again and continued her work for another few hours before dawn. Pei Xuan also got up early and went out to practice martial arts again, and was surprised to find that Su Tang had actually gotten up before him.
The little money grubbing girl’s face looked very tired as if she hadn’t gotten a proper rest, and there were dark circles under her eyes, making her look just like a panda. Pei Xuan frowned and said, “Why did you sleep so late and also get up so early?”
Su Tang looked up at him tiredly and said, “Not because of you anyway. Also, stay away from me. When I see you I feel angry.”
This dark loli happened to be a person who would be in a terrible mood whenever she didn’t sleep well. Moreover, if she didn’t have to rush to make clothes for him, she wouldn’t need to be so tired now! Right now just looking at him made her feel angry.
Indeed, Su Tang was a person with this kind of temper!
“You…” Pei Xuan didn’t expect for Su Tang to be in such a bad mood and wanted to say this sort of thing. But, after opening his mouth, he shut it again and stopped talking. Instead, he picked up his sword again and began to do more practice swings.
Su Tang basically hadn’t slept at all last night, so her expression was bleary and her whole body seemed to be swaying with the wind. Jiang Hong had gone over to the inn to request for breakfast and when he came back and saw Su Tang like this, he said in a low voice, “Young miss, please have a rest after breakfast.”
Su Tang looked at the porridge and other few dishes he had brought, patted herself on the cheeks and felt slightly refreshed. She said, “I’m fine. Let’s go to the next location after we finish eating.”
After all, it was better to walk around a little more if they wanted to buy the young master more time. If they stopped in one place for too long then some people would probably appear to drag him back immediately. Moreover, their story was that she had mischievously dragged Pei Xuan out to have fun, so it would look strange if they just stayed in an inn and didn’t go out.
