When she heard this, Luo Xingchen’s eyes really reddened and teared up. She suddenly pointed at Su Tang and wailed, “I’m already so sad, and now you are saying such things. You tell me, just where am I ugly?”
Seeing Luo Xingchen like this, Su Tang just mocked even more, “Why don’t you look at yourself in the mirror? You’re even uglier now!”
“You still have the heart to bully me? Black-hearted Tang! They bully me, and you bully me too!” Luo Xingchen pouted and tears fell down her face aggrievedly.
Seeing her pitiful state, Su Tang handed her a handkerchief and said, “That’s the way. Don’t smile if you don’t want to smile. Just cry if you’re unhappy. If you keep holding things in what’s the point of making so much money? As for those idiots who can’t even accomplish anything, just ignore them. There’s no need to take such people seriously.”
Luo Xingchen had been raised as a boy by her mother from a very early age. And, although she was smart and capable, she had ultimately grown up in a feudal society that favored boys over girls. But thanks to her circumstances, she could only bottle up her feelings and suppress her self-doubt.
Thus, in the 15 years before she met Su Tang, Luo Xingchen had never gotten much positive reinforcement or encouragement in her life. Not even her mother could really understand her.
However, after meeting Su Tang, she really began to feel not so lonely anymore and was finally able to relax and be herself in front of someone. Although Su Tang had a poisonous tongue and always bullied her, Luo Xingchen knew deep down that Su Tang wouldn’t intentionally harm her.
Because of this, she was very grateful for Su Tang’s existence. After all, if there was no Su Tang, then when Luo Xingchen encountered this kind of difficult matter she would have no choice but to power through it on her own. She would have no one to cry to or lean on, because no one else could understand her, much less help her.
But it was also thanks to this reason that she hadn’t wanted to tell Su Tang. She didn’t want Su Tang to get caught up in her own troubles, and she had wanted to solve everything herself without letting Su Tang be put at risk.
However, Su Tang felt that she didn’t need that kind of consideration from her friend. Rather, she felt that if her friend was very sad, she should just cry. It was pointless to bottle things because of some stubborn insistence on facing problems alone. It was better to just let her emotions out like this and cry a bit when she was feeling wronged.
The main reason that Su Tang felt this way was because she felt worried whenever she saw Luo Xingchen suppressing herself all the time. After all, that kind of behavior might really lead to mental illness. Instead, it would be fine for her to just rely on Su Tang a bit. At least when she was in front of her, it would be best if she could laugh when she was happy, cry when she was sad, and act as presumptuous and capricious as she liked.
After all, although Su Tang was now in the body of a loli, she was someone who had lived to be in her twenties in her previous life. She could be considered an experienced adult. Thus, whenever she looked at Luo Xingchen it was like looking at a little sister.
And when she saw her little sister bottling things up like that, she couldn’t help but deliberately say a few words to provoke her and let her emotions out.
Luo Xingchen accepted Su Tang’s handkerchief and wiped her tears while crying, “Wuwuwu… I’m already so miserable, but you still call me ugly… you’re going too far, wuwuwu…”
“Why are they doing this to me? Am I not good enough? Wuwuwu… Just because he is the eldest son and my mother is a concubine, do I deserve to be forced to obey Luo Xinghe for the rest of my life?”
“Wuwuwu… Obviously, I am much better than him… more outstanding than him… but my father is so biased and mother bullies me… you also bully me, wuwuwu…”
Luo Xingchen kept crying nonstop.
Su Tang sighed and said, “It will be fine. You are not ugly. They are idiots. You are the best. There’s no need. There must be something wrong with them!”
Like this, Luo Xingchen cried and complained one line, and Su Tang would immediately respond back.
In the midst of her tears, Luo Xingchen’s reddened eyes suddenly locked onto Su Tang and she pouted: “Too insincere.”
Su Tang secretly rolled her eyes. Suddenly her friend’s courage got really big? But she still spoke gently, “What do you want then?”
Inside, she repeatedly told herself: I am a kind person… I won’t care about this little thing…
“You… tell me that I am good-looking… no, very good-looking… no, very, very good-looking!” Luo Xingchen looked at Su Tang expectantly.
The orange cat was dumbfounded. After crying for half a day, how did the topic suddenly switch to this? A row of question marks appeared over his head.
Sigh, it seems that this beautiful two-legged beast was really a creature that this meow would never be able to understand…
