She had already seen several times before that Su Tang was definitely a vengeful person. Thus, Madam Sun decided to just lay low this time. She was well aware that this money would have no fate with her. Of course, she felt it was unfortunate, but she didn’t dare to offend Su Tang so she could only accept it.
She would just stand aside and let those idiots try to go head to head with Su Tang. And they really were idiots. They still thought of Su Tang as that little girl who used to stay at home and who they could boss around at will.
Meanwhile, after hearing Su Sanshou’s angry questions, Su Tang smiled and directly replied, “What was that, Nephew Sanshou? In fact, I find myself remembering the days back then more and more clearly these days. How could I ever forget the hard lives my brother and I were living while ‘part of your family’?
When Su Tang said this, the people around who knew a little bit about Su Tang’s days in Su Yonggui’s household all exchanged surreptitious smiles and cast various gazes towards Su Yonggui’s family. What kind of life were the two siblings living in Su Yonggui’s household before? And what kind of life were they living now, that they could gather so many people to build a house? Even using their toes to think, anyone could tell which was better by comparison.
However, Madam Zhang was a brainless woman who could only see benefits trying to fly away from her hands, so she immediately shouted, “You can’t disrespect us just because you were adopted into another household, Su Tang!”
And just like that, the quiet part was screamed out loud.
Of course, when Madam Zhao heard Su Tang saying that their family would be excluded, she also immediately lost her temper and began scolding: “You brat, you’d better remember clearly. If it hadn’t been for us agreeing back then, you would never have been able to go out and live such a good life. Now that you are rich, you don’t know how to appreciate the opportunity we painstakingly gave you. Sigh, it’s fine if you aren’t grateful, but you need to at least give us four spots on the work team this time. No, actually, we want eight. Also, we won’t accept anything less than the full 22 copper coins a day for each spot.”
Sure enough, Madam Zhao and Su Yonggui were birds of the same feather. She even had the nerve to say something like this, as if she had been the one to take the initiative to give Su Tang such a great opportunity to succeed.
However, it seemed she had forgotten she was currently in front of the whole Su family. As soon as those words came out, Su Tang wasn’t even able to respond before someone else said, “You’re really so shameless. Your family were the ones who threw Aunt Tang and Uncle Nuo into the river back then, and your family also refused to take them back when they unexpectedly survived. In the end, it was Uncle Qiang who took the lead in letting them be adopted into Grandpa Chuan’s household. Have you really forgetten? Don’t speak like you were the one who graciously decided to let them be adopted into Su Laochaun’s household. It’s obvious that you were just afraid of their adverse fate hahaha…”
Madam Zhao had been a bit too daring this time. There were so many members of the Su family here, but she still dared to open her mouth and ask for eight spots directly. Clearly she wasn’t just including the adults in her family with this number, but also the half-grown children and even the elderlies. Wasn’t that clearly just asking for money for nothing?
However, more than daring, this move by Madam Zhao was just stupid. After all, the number of spots for who could work on the house was clearly limited. Even if recruitment was limited to members of the Su family, this was a job that paid 22 copper coins a day for four months! No one would be willing to give up such a good opportunity, and every slot that went to Madam Zhao would be a slot that wouldn’t go to someone else.
Not to mention many of the people present had already gained significant benefits from Su Tang when she brought them the seedling rasing job, so they knew that the things in Su Tang’s hands were all good things. Even if they weren’t the ones who got it, they would never let Su Yonggui’s family occupy any of the quota. Even Su Tang herself was unwilling to hire anyone from Su Yonggui’s family, so why wouldn’t they help speak for her?
Su Tang quietly looked on as the people below began to quarrel with Madam Zhao and couldn’t help but secretly smile inside. It seemed every era was the same, when there was nothing at stake people would tolerate it no matter what kind of nonsense you spewed, but when their own interests became involved things would be completely different.
Su Tang laughed in her heart as she watched Su Yonggui’s family being attacked and satirized by so many people. And this was just the beginning! One day, the whole Su family would be her Su family. One day whenever these people saw her they wouldn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
“Aren’t you being too shameless? We’re talking about building a house, but you even want slots for yourself and your daughters-in-law? Are you volunteering to carry bricks yourself? Could you even lift a brick?” After one person said something, more and more also began to chime in, causing Madam Zhao’s old face to turn white.
