Seeing her friend’s excited expression at the mention of new food, Su Tang rolled her eyes.
Since the construction seemed to be going very smoothly, Su Tang felt at ease. She told Jiang Hong to keep watching things here and, if there were any problems, to come find her at the first moment. Jiang Hong agreed.
Then Su Tang and Luo Xingchen went back to Qinghe Town together. After coming back, Su Tang told Luo Xingchen to wait for her while she went to the Song residence to apologize. She had run away in a hurry when she heard there was a problem at the workshop today without telling Song Yi. She knew her master would definitely be angry with her.
And, indeed, Song Yi was very unhappy with her. Su Tang had to spend more than half an hour coaxing him and had to cook a meal before he let her off. When she finally got back, she found Luo Xingchen looking at her with an aggrieved expression on her face, and the little guy sitting next to her.
“So you still know how to come back!” As soon as Su Tang walked in the door, Luo Xingchen shot her a resentful look and exclaimed. Hmph. This girl let her wait for so long while she ran off to who knows where. She was too much!
Her tone reminded Su Tang of a resentful woman in the deep palace, and Su Tang was speechless. Then she looked at Su Nuo, who was also sitting there, and said, “It’s fine if your Big Brother Luo is not sensible, but how can you join the fun? Have you already done all of your homework?”
As soon as he heard his sister ask about his homework, the little guy shrank his neck. He looked over at Luo Xingchen, then said aggrievedly, “It’s not me, it’s not me. It was Big Brother Luo who forced me.”
Seeing Su Nuo immediately denying everything, Luo Xingchen cursed at iron for not becoming steel. She quickly said, “Little brother, you must have the spirit of resistance! As a man, how can you be a coward!”
Su Tang rolled her eyes. Couldn’t she teach anything good?
However, Su Nuo wasn’t cowed. He looked at Luo Xingchen and said very sincerely, “Big Brother Luo, you’re wrong! A man should listen to his sister. Big Brother Luo, you should also listen to my sister, because my sister is the smartest person in the world. Being obedient is not being a coward!”
Su Tang smiled widely. What a righteous words! She laughed and said, “Xiao Nuo is really smart. Try not to learn from your Big Brother Luo, he is ignorant and has no potential.”
The little guy nodded up and down, “Mhm!”
In his mind, whatever his sister said was always right. There were no problems with this way of thinking at all!
Luo Xingchen looked over at the serious-looking Su Nuo, then the smiling Su Tang, and her chest felt very blocked and uncomfortable. If she was supposed to listen to Su Tang because Su Tang was smart, was the little guy trying to say that she was not smart?
Moreover, how was she ignorant and without potential? Luo Xingchen, who had been continuously shot in the knee by her “friend”, felt sad. If she didn’t have any potential, was there any woman in this world who did?
Thinking to this point, she found that she could only lower her head. After all, there was still Su Tang. But inside, she was really going ballistic.
Seeing the complicated thoughts flashing across her friend’s face, Su Tang felt amused and chuckled.
However, the little guy was still a ruthless one. Even after saying all that, he still looked up at Luo Xingchen and continued, “Big Brother Luo, don’t you think what I said is right?”
Luo Xingchen felt that the biggest mistake she had made in this life was acquainting herself with these two. Why did she ever think that Su Tang was just an ordinary peasant girl or that Su Nuo was an ordinary, maybe even a little mediocre, person? Weren’t they actually both devils?
Seeing the little guy looking up at her with his big eyes, Luo Xingchen’s eye twitched. In the end, she could only say, “En, you’re right!”
Su Nuo nodded and said, “Good. Then, Big Brother Luo, you can’t have the spirit of resistance anymore. You should listen to my big sister. You have nothing to lose if you listen to my big sister, because my big sister is smarter than you.”
Luo Xingchen almost spat blood. Ah, you’re piercing my heart, little brother!
What did she do wrong in her last life that caused her to meet this brother and sister pair in this life?
Su Tang saw that Luo Xingchen was breaking down, so she sent Su Nuo a look. Catching his sister’s hint, Su Nuo immediately covered his mouth. He smiled and stopped teasing Luo Xingchen, “Well, Big Sister, Big Brother Luo, you two talk business. I’ll go do my homework.”
As she watched the little guy running away to hide in his room, Su Tang’s eyes were full of smiles. The little guy was much more lively now compared with back when he first came to Qinghe Town.
And Su Nuo, who had entered his room, touched his chin thoughtfully. It turned out that this was the so-called “power of words”?
