After sending Pei Xuan off, Su Tang also went back and entered the room with Luo Xingchen and Jiang Hong. When Jiang Hong saw Su Tang, he bowed and then quietly retreated from the room to leave space for Su Tang and Luo Xingchen.
“Tsk, tsk, look at how reluctant you are to part. Is it okay to send him off just like this?” When Luo Xingchen saw Su Tang come in she immediately started teasing her with a smile.
But the result was: Su Tang looked at her with eyes like she was looking at an idiot.
Su Tang sighed and said, “Wow, I never saw it, but it seems that our Second Young Master Luo still has a young girl’s heart?”
What ghostly things had this girl’s eyes seen? What reluctance to part? Which one of her eyes saw something like that? Su Tang felt speechless. After all, in her mind, this little encounter with Pei Xuan was just a coincidental crossing of paths.
Although they were both Song Yi’s disciples, Su Tang had already long decided that she would live her life freely as she liked and that she wouldn’t ever have anything to do with those so-called nobilities from the capital.
And Pei Xuan was the Young Duke, a young man who was highly regarded by everyone in the capital, so their paths were destined to lead in different directions. Su Tang could play with him for a few days and freely play a few tricks on him, but that was it.
She knew very well that in the future, not to mention whatever messy ideas were swimming around in Luo Xingchen’s head, she and Pei Xuan probably wouldn’t even ever meet again.
However, Su Tang couldn’t help but be surprised that Second Young Master Luo, who spent all of her days disguising as a man, unexpectedly still had a young girl’s heart inside.
Luo Xingchen’s face turned red and she said, “What ‘young girl’s heart’? I…” Her voice lowered and she continued squirmingly, “Anyway, I’m originally a young girl, right?”
What was this? What kind of ghostly space-time brain circuitry misalignment was happening here? Su Tang looked at this usually confident Second Young Master Luo who was suddenly acting like a shy little girl and felt goosebumps springing up all over her body. For a moment, she really didn’t know how to retort.
“Second Young Master Luo, you are at least a person who has been entrusted with many businesses under the Luo family, right? Can’t you keep your thoughts a little more steady?” Su Tang, the beautiful and kind-hearted loli, would never lower herself to engage with such an idiotic thought in the first place, so she cut into Second Young Master Luo’s delusional thoughts in a very rational and calm tone.
Orange Cat: ‘What a good ‘rationality’. Not pretentious at all, ah!’
Su Tang glanced over and rolled her eyes.
The orange cat immediately retreated and said, ‘Did you hear that? Did someone else say something just now?’
Seeing a certain meow acting so cowardly, Su Tang didn’t even bother to teach him a lesson.
The orange cat could only cry silently. These days even a Divine Beast like himself needed a strong survival instinct. Life as a pet was so difficult!
Luo Xingchen looked up and complained, “Tang, I knew that you had already moved on as soon as I got back. Now you’ve found someone else, do you not love me anymore?”
Su Tang watched on as the drama queen put on her performance and only gave one reply: “Hehe.”
Luo Xingchen shivered when she saw Su Tang’s expression. She said carefully, “But I saw it. He and you…”
As she was speaking, she saw Su Tang looking at her contemptuously like she was looking at an idiot, so she slowly stopped speaking.
Finally, Su Tang said, “Having a brain is a good thing Second Young Master Luo, don’t you think?”
What kinds of things was this person thinking about? She was still only nine years old, okay? Completely a loli! Meanwhile, Pei Xuan was already 15-years-old. What kind of kindergarten love story would that be? Wasn’t she obviously thinking too much?
It seemed that this guy had been pretending to be a man for too long with no outlet for her young girl’s heart, that must be why the IQ of her girl’s heart had directly dropped into the single digits.
“Can’t we drop this topic?” Luo Xingchen could feel Su Tang radiating contempt, so she just pouted and didn’t want to continue.
Su Tang rolled her eyes, then took out the blueprint she had drawn before and showed it to Luo Xingchen. She said, “If you’re ready to think about serious matters, have a look at this blueprint for the new workshop that I’ve drawn.”
These were Su Tang’s true feelings. In her mind, Pei Xuan was just a passer-by in her life. She would do her best to get along with him while he was here, but she wouldn’t cling or be too persistent when he had to leave. After all, he was the Young Duke who rubbed elbows with the emperor, the empress, and various princes. It was too distant from her life. Compared to all that, Su Tang’s current project to build the new workshop and make more money was much more important.
As soon as Luo Xingchen heard Su Tang say this, she hurriedly followed Su Tang to have a look at the blueprint of the workshop she had drawn. After that, the two of them studied it together.
