Su Xiaozhi interrupted.
“Sister-in-law, now that Chong and Hua are successful, you dont have to work so hard.
Buy two maidservants to do chores.
Its time to enjoy yourself.”
Su Chong and Su Hua had already been intermediate.
They would definitely become officials in the future.
Which officials family did not have a few maidservants
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao would definitely be served by maidservants in the future.
Only then would they have face.
Su Sanlang frowned and said, “We have hands and feet, and were not that old yet.
Why should we buy maidservants We wont.”
Su Xiaozhi explained, “But in the future, Chong and Hua will become officials.
If you dont have anyone to serve you, youll embarrass them.”
Su Sanlang looked at Su Xiaozhi with a cold expression.
“Xiaozhi, its my familys business whether we have face or not.
Its not your place to question it.”
Su Sanlang did not give her any face.
Su Xiaozhi immediately felt very embarrassed.
A sense of grievance welled up in her heart.
“Third Brother, Im doing this for your own good.”
Su Xiaozhi did not understand.
She was clearly thinking for Su Sanlang, but he was still angry.
Even Madam Zhao ignored her.
Su Sanlang frowned when he saw Su Xiaozhi like this.
“If youre here to tell me what to do with my life, then dont blame me for being rude.
How we live is our business.
Its not your place to worry.
Just live your life well.”
Su Sanlang had made it very clear that Su Xiaozhi had crossed the line.
Her words and the tone of her voice made Su Sanlang feel uncomfortable.
Su Sanlang did not want to interact too much with this sister.
There were some things that, once started to be calculative and had a bottom line, it was impossible not to know about any actions that crossed the line.
It was just that they were infinitely tolerant.
Su Xiaozhi felt unbalanced, and Su Sanlang did not want to say anything to her.
Su Sanlangs alienation made Su Xiaozhi feel depressed.
Looking at Su Sanlangs cold face, Su Xiaozhi pursed her lips and said, “Third Brother, Im sorry.
Dont be angry.
I wont do it again.”
Su Xiaozhi softened her tone, and Su Sanlangs expression softened.
“Well, thank you for coming.”
Su Sanlang didnt pursue the matter further.
Su Xiaozhi heaved a sigh of relief.
Su Sanlang looked at Su Xiaozhi and asked, “How has Auntie been recently Why didnt she bring Xiaoshou and Xiaoyang”
Su Sanlang asked about his daily life.
He was actually very concerned about Su Xiaozhi.
He would always remember how Su Xiaozhi had helped him back then.
It was just that the world was unpredictable and peoples hearts were fickle.
Su Xiaozhi couldnt do what he wanted to see, and he couldnt do what Su Xiaozhi wanted to see, so he walked further and further away.
“Shes in good health.
She caught a cold recently, so she didnt come.
Xiaoshou and Xiaoyang are also in good health.
If they know that Uncle misses them, theyll definitely be very happy.”
Su Xiaozhi smiled and said.
Her eyes lit up.
She looked at Su Sanlang and said, “Third Brother, Xiaoshou often misses his two brothers, Chong and Hua.
He always said how good it would be if he could still learn from them.”
After Su Xiaozhi finished speaking, she looked at Su Sanlang expectantly.
It was as if he only needed to say the word.
But Su Sanlang said nothing.
His expression was calm and composed.
He did not speak.
Su Xiaozhi felt a little awkward.
She could feel that Su Sanlang had suddenly become cold and did not want to talk to her anymore.
The feeling of alienation was too obvious.
Su Xiaozhi did not understand.
She had not done anything wrong.
Hu Changshou and Hu Changyang were her sons.
Wasnt it normal for her to want to think for them
If Su Chong and Su Hua were going to be officials in the future, they would definitely need their own people around them.
How could others compare to their cousins
Su Sanlang looked at Su Xiaozhis aggrieved and indignant expression and sighed.
“Xiaozhi, go back.
I dont want to say the same thing a second time.
If you want to say this in the future, then dont come.
If you want to eat, youre welcome to come anytime.”
Su Sanlang did not feel good at all.
Su Chong and Su Huas intermediate examination was only the first step in the imperial examination.
They still had a long way to go.
There would definitely be times when they needed people in the future, but they had the final say in who they wanted to use and who they chose.
Su Sanlang did not want to make this decision for them.
If Su Xiaozhi understood, she wouldnt have asked these questions because nothing was more important than teaching Hu Changshou and Hu Changyang well.
As long as Hu Changshou and Hu Changyang were reliable and willing, they would stick together at the right time and advance and retreat together.
It was not like Su Xiaozhi had to come and take the seat in advance without confirming anything.
She wanted him to say something or make a guarantee.
Su Sanlangs heart was heavy.
When he met Su Xiaozhis aggrieved gaze, he knew that she did not understand.
Tears welled up in Su Xiaozhis eyes.
She choked and said, “Alright, Ill leave, Ill leave.
I didnt know how to appreciate kindness and came to disturb you, but what did I do wrong I just wanted my child to live a better life and wanted my child to marry well, but even so, you refused to help.
Back then, Shuangshuangs marriage was like this, and now its like this again… Youre my third brother, and youre Xiaoshou and Xiaoyangs biological uncle.
Do you want to see them marry a woman who doesnt know anything”
“Third Brother, dont forget that Im your biological sister.”
Su Xiaozhi wiped her tears and stood up resolutely to leave.
Su Sanlang felt a lump in his throat.
He frowned as he watched Su Xiaozhi leave.
In the end, he said nothing.
No matter how much he said, Su Xiaozhi wouldnt listen.
As long as he didnt make a promise and say anything else, Su Xiaozhi didnt care.
Madam Zhao came in with a teapot and poured a cup of water for Su Sanlang.
She said gently, “Have a cup of tea.”
Su Sanlang sighed.
“Darling, why dont you think Xiaozhi understands If Xiaoshou and Xiaoyang do well, theyll definitely be trusted when they have the chance in the future.
Why is she so anxious now”
“She even implicated Hus family.
How can I make the decision for Daniu and Ernius marriage The marriage was made by the heavens, but she insisted on blaming me.”
Su Sanlang felt stifled.
He had only sent a message about Chen Daniu and Chen Ernius marriage.
Most importantly, the Niu family liked them.
He had already explained, but Su Xiaozhi did not care at all.
She still firmly believed that he was the one who made the decision, that he had matched such a good marriage to Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu, but he did not think of his niece, Hu Shuangshuang, and insisted on comparing Hu Shuangshuang to Chen Erniu.
Madam Zhao smiled faintly and did not say anything else about this matter.
She reached out to smooth Su Sanlangs heart and said, “Drink some tea to cool down.
Ill go to the kitchen to help Xiaoling.”
When Su Xiaozhi went back, there were a few dishes that didnt need to be cooked.
There was no need to add extra dishes.
After the examination ended, Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng did not relax.
They devoted themselves to their studies and prepared for the Spring Quarter Examinations after the new year.
Madam Zhao went to the kitchen and said to Su Xiaoling, “Xiaoling, theres no need to add more food.
Your aunt has already gone back.”
