Hearing that question, Su Tang took another sip of her tea drank to moisten her throat, then glanced over and said, “Heh, if I don’t take anything out, how are we supposed to make that father of yours sit still?”
As soon as those words fell, Luo Xingchen could only smile bitterly. Finally, she muttered, “Devil, you’re really a devil. Do you have to be so scary?”
This matter that she still hadn’t mentioned, Su Tang could guess clearly. Luo Xingchen could only sigh. The wisdom of mortals like her really couldn’t be compared with the wisdom of a devil like Su Tang.
In fact, with the completion of the Luo family’s own workshop and the gradual ripening of the chili peppers and tomatoes on their farms, along with the recipes that Su Tang had provided, the Luo family now firmly believed that there was huge profit to be made in this business.
Suddenly there were a lot of profits on the table which needed to be split with a small peasant girl. That being the case, how could Luo Xingchen’s father, the head of a huge merchant family, possibly sit still? How could he be willing to share half of his family’s profits with a random peasant girl?
Su Tang wasn’t a devil or a monster, she was just a person who would never underestimate the greed of the human heart.
After all, she was just a small peasant girl. A person who obviously had no significant background, and yet she wanted to get half the profits while working with the richest family of merchants in the north, the Luo family? Heh, even if the Luo family wanted to just directly kill her to swallow this business, it would be considered perfectly in line with human nature.
Su Tang smirked when she heard Luo Xingchen once again calling her a “devil”, then said slowly, “I’ve already said in the past: I’ll only believe in you.”
Hearing this, Luo Xingchen’s eyes suddenly turned red and she burst into tears. This time, she wasn’t acting at all. No one else could understand how important these words were to her right now.
Seeing Luo Xingchen suddenly bawling, Su Tang smiled and teased, “Who would have thought that the arrogant and domineering Second Young Master Luo was also a useless cry baby!”
“What cry baby? Who’s crying!” The proud Second Young Master Luo obviously wouldn’t admit such a thing and directly refuted.
Su Tang didn’t bother to expose her and said placatingly, “Yes, yes, our overbearing young master is the coolest and the coldest and does not cry.”
Luo Xingchen couldn’t help but burst into laughter after hearing this. One moment she had been crying, and now she was laughing. In the end, she looked over at Su Tang and said, “Tang, prepare yourself, I’m really going to rely on you for the rest of my life.”
Su Tang sighed said, “Obviously, I have already accepted this sad reality.”
Luo Xingchen puffed up. Why was Su Tang acting like this? She only said she would rely on herfor life, did that really make her feel so proud of herself? This black-hearted Su Tang!
Su Tang: En, I really feel so proud of myself!
As a matter of fact, a person like Su Tang was basically wary of everyone and did not trust anyone easily. However, once she did trust someone, it would be an absolute trust.
In Su Tang’s eyes, the Luo family was the Luo family, while Luo Xingchen was Luo Xingchen. They were two completely separate entities. Thus, she had always been watching the Luo family with an impassive eye and was naturally able to see the situation very clearly.
Luo Xingchen herself stood on Su Tang’s side and was willing to help her and protect her interests, but Luo Xingchen was still only the second young master of the Luo family. She was already in a dangerous situation herself thanks to her brother, so Su Tang obviously wouldn’t just let her bear everything herself.
After all, they were partners who had agreed to help and cooperate with one another. Thus, as long as Luo Xingchen’s heart didn’t change, Su Tang also would not change.
Since they were doing business together, Luo Xingchen’s difficulties were also her difficulties, and Luo Xingchen’s problems were also her problems. It was largely thanks to this that Su Tang had decided to release a new product.
At least for the moment, neither she nor Luo Xingchen were able to compete with the Luo family, so they could only seek to maintain the status quo for the time being. However, Su Tang was confident that once the Luo family started to sell her sauces, their power would definitely grow. In the end, it would be hard to say whether it would be the Luo family devouring them, or them devouring the Luo family.
Luo Xingchen also showed a more resolute expression after this conversation. After crying, laughing, and being scolded by Su Tang, she finally seemed to accept her fate. Whatever, it would be fine! Even if it meant being bullied by Su Tang sometimes, she would cling to her for life!
