Madam Zhao was an arrogant and unreasonable old woman. Even in the face of verbal attacks from so many people, she still didn’t want to back down.
But she was secretly also feeling a bit flustered. After all, in the past, if Su Tang wanted to argue with her she still needed to open her mouth and argue herself. But now, Su Tang didn’t even need to say anything. She could just stand aside and other people would jump out and speak for her.
On the side, Madam Wu listened as all the people around her despised and hurled abuse at her family, and she couldn’t help but look up at Su Tang. Only less than a year had gone by, but somehow the little girl who used to be controlled in the palm of her hands had already transformed to such an extent.
Before she even realized what happened, Su Tang had already become so strong that she was very difficult to deal with.
Su Tang happened to sense Madam Wu’s gaze, so she turned her head to grin down at her. Madam Wu quickly lowered her head and clasped her fingers shakily. Inside, she was determined. She couldn’t afford to let these two brats grow any further!
At the same time, the members of the Su family were scolding Su Yonggui’s family to their heart’s content. These unkind words all fell into Madam Wu’s ears one after another, causing her to feel very upset but also very surprised. Madam Wu had always thought she had a good reputation in Sujia Village, but now it seemed that it wasn’t so. It turned out that many people were clear on the dirty things she had done, it was just that they had never bothered to say anything about it before because it had nothing to do with them.
Madam Zhao finally couldn’t control herself and began scolding back, “You shameless bastards, what do you mean what right do we have to take her money? If it wasn’t for us…”
Su Yonggui, who had just been silently staring at Su Tang this entire time, noticed that his wife still hadn’t learned her lesson and sent her a hard slap. He growled, “Shut up.”
Madam Zhao covered her face and wore a disbelieving expression. Then she shouted, “Su Yonggui, you dare to hit me? I’m doing this for our family! How come those two brats never knew how to make money when they lived with us? But as soon as they go out they start making money for others? I think that they did it deliberately because they did not want our family to live a good life. I was only speaking because I am thinking for the sake of our family, but you still hit me, are you even a human…”
Madam Zhao began to howl and blame Su Yonggui. Su Yonggui’s face darkened and turned black when he heard her yowling but, in fact, Madam Zhao’s words were more or less in line with his own thoughts.
If he had known that Su Tang was so good at making money, how could he have allowed Madam Wu to sacrifice the girl to the River God? Moreover, if he hadn’t sent the siblings to be sacrificed to the River God, how could they have gotten the opportunity to meet the River God? And now that they were making money and living a good life, not to mention not feeling grateful, these brats were even targeting him? Su Yonggui really wanted to ask Su Tang, did she even have a conscience?
Su Yonggui told Madam Wu to support her mother-in-law, and then turned back to Su Tang and said slowly, “Little Tang, are you going to insist on holding a grudge against us?”
Su Tang looked at this pretentious old guy acting all solemn and felt it was very ridiculous. In fact, Su Yonggui and his whole family were all selfish ghosts who only loved themselves. Back then she and her brother had been forced to do all of the work at home but, despite that, Madam Wu was always finding them to stir things up and create problems.
Su Yonggui had always been afraid of trouble and didn’t like to deal with the problems at home so he had just turned a blind eye to everything. Thanks to that, Madam Zhao had been fooled by her son and his wife into sacrificing the two siblings to the River God in order to heal Su Sanshou’s leg. Su Yonggui had been able to see all this going on and could understand that it was probably just Madam Wu’s plot, but he didn’t care enough to investigate or get to the bottom of things.
In his mind, they were just two children who had been left behind by a woman who was already gone. There were already so many sons in the family, and even the father of those two brats had a new wife who could make new children, so there was no danger of not having enough heirs. Plus, without the siblings around, Madam Wu would probably finally stop making trouble and the family would be peaceful.
And Su Sanshou was indeed injured at that time, and who could say? Maybe the sacrifice would really be able to save his son? Compared with his third son, these two brats who were nothing but a burden on the family were of little value at all, so he had decided to throw them away.
Of course, there was secretly another reason too. Su Yonggui had always been a selfish man, and these two children who were said to have an adverse fate made him feel a little afraid. After all, he still wanted to live a few more years.
But who would have thought that, after being fished out of the river, Su Tang and her brother were like completely different people? It seemed that maybe their adverse fate was real. And, more importantly, their resentment toward Su Yonggui and his family was very obvious.
