But who knew that Pei Xuan would unexpectedly jump out to stand between her and Su Tang, and also send her such a fierce glare? Luo Xingchen also became a little angry and replied: “Who am I? Who are you?”
But as soon as she finished speaking, before she could even react, Pei Xuan’s sword was already against her neck as he growled: “You dare take such a tone with me?”
In the capital, Pei Xuan was the ice-cold honorable Young Duke with a golden halo above his head. He wasn’t approachable at all to anyone except for the people closest to him, so who would ever dare speak to him like this?
Luo Xingchen hadn’t expected this young man would be so arrogant as to directly take out his sword and couldn’t help but frown. She flicked her wrist and her whip suddenly shot out and knocked away Pei Xuan’s sword.
Pei Xuan also frowned. He hadn’t expected that this Luo Xingchen, who looked so skinny and weak, was actually also a martial artist. In fact, this was normal. Luo Xingchen had been raised as a man from a young age and, precisely because she was really a woman, her mother had insisted on letting her learn martial arts. It was a valuable skill that would give her daughter some ability to protect her own life and also help prevent her from encountering any accidents outside.
However, Luo Xingchen’s martial arts skills were not comparable to Pei Xuan’s. After all, Pei Xuan was the son of a duke who had been practicing since childhood while Luo Xingchen was merely the “son” of a merchant. Thus, after being pushed back momentarily by Luo Xingchen’s whip, he immediately raised his sword and charged back in.
Standing on the side, Jiang Hong couldn’t help but sigh. The scene he had been most afraid to see had really appeared. The two young masters had really begun to fight.
Meanwhile, when Su Tang saw the two of them have a small disagreement and then immediately start fighting she felt speechless. She quickly shouted: “Stop fighting!”
Pei Xuan didn’t stop, instead, he called back: “You hide aside for now! See if I don’t teach this frivolous person a lesson today!”
Pei Xuan was in a bad mood. Was his junior sister’s name something any random person could call at will? He was definitely going to teach this person some manners today!
His junior sister was just a little girl for a village so she didn’t understand this kind of etiquette, but as her senior brother he couldn’t just let her be bullied because she was ignorant. Moreover, when he thought of his junior sister smiling at this frivolous young man, the strokes of his sword slowly became stronger and stronger.
Meanwhile, although Luo Xingchen usually acted frivolously in front of Su Tang, she had been raised as a man and had a somewhat wild temper, so she also said, “Tang, you’ve heard it. It’s not that I don’t want to stop, it’s just that this person is too unreasonable.”
Luo Xingchen, as a calculating merchant, was obviously able to tell that Pei Xuan didn’t like her calling Su Tang directly by name, so she purposefully did it again. And, sure enough, she saw Pei Xuan’s face turn black when he heard that.
Su Tang looked at these two people who were slashing and whipping at one another and sighed. It was fine if you two didn’t like each other, but why do you have to fight here and cause troubles for her? !
Thus, Su Tang once again drew her bow, nocked an arrow, then aimed at the two fighters and said, “I told you to stop but you didn’t stop. Uncompliant people can only be dealt with by violence, okay?” Then she released the arrow.
Su Tang had quite “magical” archery skills and, needless to say, all of her arrows basically went directly toward Pei Xuan. Thanks to that the pressure on Luo Xingchen was suddenly reduced and the fight became much easier for her.
“If you two don’t stop now, you’ll both have to go out squat in the horse stance for a few hours, and you won’t get any lunch!” Su Tang yelled angrily. She knew that if she didn’t show off her might now then these two would really take her as a decoration and keep causing trouble as they like!
Of course, don’t even mention the horse stance, Luo Xingchen stopped as soon as she heard that there would be no lunch if she continued! It was completely impossible for her to give up on one of Su Tang’s meals after she finally managed to come out and meet up with her.
Pei Xuan saw that Luo Xingchen had stopped and frowned. He really wanted to teach this guy a lesson, but with Su Tang shooting arrows at him from the side and his opponent not even fighting back anymore, he knew he had to stop.
Looking back at his biased junior sister, he muttered, “Why would you help him?”
Although his voice was low and cold, Su Tang could inexplicably recognize the grievance contained in his tone.
“Psh, help? What help? !” Su Tang denied it. Then she continued, “All right, be good, don’t cause more troubles for me.”
Pei Xuan’s dark eyes locked onto Su Tang and, although he didn’t speak, it still showed his small fit of stubbornness. Finally, Su Tang could only rub her brow with a sigh and say, “I wasn’t helping him, I was merely smacking the troublemakers.”
Luo Xingchen saw that Su Tang actually unexpectedly explained her reasoning to Pei Xuan and felt aggrieved. Why was Tang always so venomous to her, but so kind and agreeable to this guy?
The orange cat, who could sense the thoughts of the two people, muttered: You two are really something else!
