The Zhou family were all experienced people. Although they were just ordinary farmers, it wasn’t like they didn’t understand how the world worked. If Su Tang wanted to open a restaurant and employ people, there were plenty of skilled adults who would line up to be hired.
However, Su Tang ignored that and directly gave the chance to their daughter. Not only that, Su Tang also said that Zhou Xiaocao would be able to become a restaurant manager in the future. And if their daughter could take advantage of this opportunity and really earn a lot, then wouldn’t they easily be able to find a son-in-law to marry into their family? Would anyone dare to bully them?
In fact, peasant families all understood that while reputation was good, money was probably better. And now that Su Tang was giving Zhou Xiaocao the opportunity to make a lot of money, a lot of her problems could be solved. After all, if she were making a lot of money and her standard of living was high, even if her reputation wasn’t perfect, there would be no need to worry that she wouldn’t be able to find a husband.
And, in truth, Su Tang didn’t have much to do with Zhou Xiaocao or her family. Their first meeting had been when Su Tang had kindly saved Zhou Xiaocao from drowning in the river, and now she was helping her again. Thus, Zhou Dazhu and Madam Yang’s hearts were only full of gratitude towards this girl.
As for whether their daughter could really be the manager in the future, she could only rely on her own efforts. After all, Su Tang’s words from before were correct. At the end of the day, she could only depend on herself and only she could live her life, no one else could do it for her.
The couple were full of gratitude to Su Tang, but they also didn’t know how to express it. In the end, they both decided to kneel down and kowtow to Su Tang to show their thanks.
Meanwhile, Su Tang felt her eyes stinging a bit when she saw this scene. Her heart went out to these parents who were willing to kneel for their child’s future.
Zhou Xiaocao saw this happening and was immediately able to understand what her parents were thinking, so she also kowtowed to Su Tang and said, “You are the greatest benefactor for me and my family, I will definitely repay you by working as your cow or horse in the future.”
Su Tang could feel the family’s sincerity from their actions. She sighed and said, “Alright, I understand your feelings. Don’t kneel everyone. I’m still so young, I can’t stand this treatment.”
As she spoke, Su Tang went forward and helped them up one by one. After all, they were not her slaves. Moreover, even for slaves, Su Tang only had them salute. No one had to kneel. Su Tang really couldn’t stand it.
“Hmm, what’s going on here?” While Su Tang was helping the Zhou family up, she suddenly heard someone talking at the door.
The Zhou family stood up one by one and looked over in the direction of the voice from the door. They were surprised to see a jade-like young man in fine clothes standing there looking back at them.
It was Luo Xingchen. Seeing her, Su Tang frowned and asked, “Why are you here with this kind of timing?”
Recently, Luo Xingchen had been responsible for overseeing the construction of the workshop in Qingshui County. The main reason she had to be there personally was because the large meat grinder had finished being built, so from what Su Tang knew, Luo Xingchen shouldn’t be here at this time and she naturally felt surprised to see her.
Luo Xingchen strode through the door, picked up the tea cup next to Su Tang, drank all the tea inside, then sat down and said, “Is there anything important going on? Are you free? If you are, quickly come with me to Qingshui Town.”
“Has something come up? Just give me a moment, I’ll go with you right away.” As soon as Su Tang heard that there was something going on in Qingshui town, she knew that there must be some problem with the workshop. This was her current top priority, so Su Tang was of course anxious to go and have a look.
Luo Xingchen nodded, “I’ve already asked Mrs. Jiang to go and ask for a carriage.” After that, she said, “Is there any more tea? It’s a hot day. We still have a few minutes before we leave.”
“There’s more in the kitchen. But Xiao Nuan is the only one at home, so you’ll have to go to the kitchen and find it yourself.” Su Tang could tell from how Luo Xingchen’s clothes were dusty and her face was covered with sweat that she had probably ridden all the way here on her horse, so she told her to help herself.
Luo Xingchen had nothing more to say, so she nodded and went directly to the kitchen. Meanwhile, the Zhou family watched from the side as Su Tang spoke familiarly with this wealthy-looking young master and didn’t understand what relationship the two people had, so they could only awkwardly stand aside and stay silent.
