At the same moment when Su Yonggui and his family were getting together to discuss how to take Su Tang’s properties for themselves, Su Tang and Su Nuan were leaving the Zhou family. As the two girls came out of the house, Su Nuan’s eyes were still reddened with tears, but Su Tang herself seemed calm.
Because it was still early, and the orange cat still hadn’t come back, Su Tang followed Su Nuan back to Su Nuan’s house again. After that, Su Tang sat together with Su Nuan and chatted for a while as Su Nuan did her needlework.
Su Nuan, who was still a little girl, didn’t go out of Sujia Village very much, so most of what she had to say was about the various goings-on here in the village. Su Tang smiled and listened to the other girl, calmly waiting for Su Nuan to finish making the two hairbands. Once they were done, Su Tang wasn’t polite at all and directly put the hairbands away in her pouch.
And, just then, the orange cat also finally came back. Thus, Su Tang called Niu’er over, boarded the carriage again, and told him to bring them back to Qinghe Town.
‘That litter of two-legged beasts all gathered at home and said…’ The orange cat had been quietly listening in the whole time while Su Yonggui and his family were speaking. So, after happily plopping down on the carriage cushion, he quickly relayed everything they had talked about to Su Tang.
When Su Tang learned that Su Yonggui and his family were actually planning to drown her in a pig cage and then directly take all of her things, she merely showed a faint smile and sent, ‘I’ve always known they have ugly hearts, but this is the first I’ve learned they also have such beautiful dreams.’
But she also couldn’t help but shake her head. These people were really too stupid, right? How could they possibly think that a little loli like her could seduce a man into giving her so much money? Of course, she was aware that she could be considered a budding beauty but, considering all the things that would be needed both inside and outside to build the new house, they were probably talking about upwards of 200 taels of silver. And, in all of Qinghe Town, there were honestly only a few men who could easily take out so much silver to give away.
Su Tang really didn’t know whether she should thank the family for having such a high opinion of her capabilities, or whether she should just feel speechless. These people’s brains seemed to have all been ironed until they were completely smooth – they had no logic at all!
The orange cat also felt speechless. In the past, he had said that the beautiful two-legged beast he met before had no brain, but these two-legged beasts from his master’s old nest were even more unlucky. After all, not only did they have no brains, they were all ugly!
Thus it could be seen that the heavens could be fair, but also could be quite unfair. For example, his master was so scheming and black-bellied, so the heavens had sent a cute, lovable, and clever Divine Beast like himself to be bound by her side in order to balance things out. This was the fairness of the heavens. But then look at that two-legged beast called Su Yonggui and the rest of his family. They were not only very ugly, but also very stupid. That was the unfairness of the heavens.
A certain Divine Beast’s whiskers twitched and he banished that line of thought. After all, as a cute and lovable Divine Beast, he should not scold others, no matter how stupid a particular litter of two-legged beasts might be.
At first, Su Tang felt a bit annoyed after hearing all this, but when she thought of what expression Madam Wu would make when she learned of Su Yonggui and Madam Zhao’s plans, she suddenly felt a little happier.
It seemed the old saying was true after all, fools would end up being tortured by their fellow fools. Madam Wu was probably anxious like an ant on a hot pan when she thought of her little plan falling apart, but she would still have no choice but to quietly watch on from the sidelines.
Of course, regarding these people’s little plans, Su Tang wasn’t afraid at all. They were just a bunch of clowns, and even if all of their brains were put together it still wouldn’t be enough for her to get out of bed early to deal with. If they really dared to stretch their claws towards her, she would just directly break those claws off.
Thinking of this scene, the corners of Su Tang’s lips curled into a smile. In fact, she still needed someone to sacrifice themselves in order to push her plan to take over the Su family forward, so these clowns jumping out like this was actually just perfect.
The orange cat saw the evil smile on his master’s face and covered his eyes with his paws and shivered in an exaggerated manner. After all, he needed to let this dark loli know that he had been frightened and only delicious grilled fish could calm down his terrified heart.
In the end, Su Tang only asked the orange cat to pay a little more attention to matters in the village, but she wasn’t really worried. She knew very well that once a person had a bias in their heart, any kind of evidence would be conveniently interpreted in a way that lined up with the bias in their imagination.
Thus, no matter what she did in the future, in the eyes of Su Yonggui and his family, it would all be interpreted as further evidence of her so-called lover. And, at any rate, Su Yonggui seemed to have decided to wait four months for the house to be built, so Su Tang could just toss this matter to the back of her mind and wait for him to make a move.
Of course, her decision mainly stemmed from the fact that she was still very busy, and she didn’t have enough free time to entertain this family of clowns.
After returning to Qinghe Town, Su Tang continued to work with Luo Xingchen and Jiang Hong on the sauce workshop and didn’t waste any more time thinking about Su Yonggui’s little schemes.
