Lin Pingsheng looked at the three handsome youths and waved his hand.
“Alright, you can go back.
I wish you all success and a bright future.”
“Just do whatever you want.
You dont have to ask if the outcome is good or bad.
Just ask if your heart is as you wish.”
After saying that, Lin Pingsheng turned around.
He would know if Su Chong had passed the test when he returned.
Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng bowed to Lin Pingsheng and said in unison, “Teacher, well be leaving.”
The three of them looked at Lin Pingsheng.
Lin Pingsheng only waved his hand and did not say anything else.
Su Chong and the other two also turned around and went back.
As soon as they went out, she saw Madam Chen by the door.
When she saw them, Madam Chen smiled.
Su Chong and the other two cupped their hands at Madam Chen and didnt say anything.
Madam Chen looked at the three of them and sighed softly.
Then, she walked towards the main room.
Lin Pingsheng was old.
Perhaps he had raised Su Chong and the other two as his biological children.
Now that they have graduated, it might be difficult to meet them in the future.
Lin Pingsheng was reluctant.
He wiped his eyes and sighed softly.
Madam Chen stood quietly by the door.
When Lin Pingsheng calmed down, Madam Chen said, “Master, its late and cold.
Go back and rest early.”
Lin Pingsheng turned around, feeling a little embarrassed.
When did his wife come There was no sound at all.
Looking at the gentle-looking Madam Chen, Lin Pingsheng went over and held her hand.
“Madam, fortunately, youre with me.”
Madam Chen smiled.
She was his wife.
If she didnt accompany him, who else would she accompany
Lin Pingsheng sighed softly.
“If only Su Chong could pass this test.”
If he passed this test, he would definitely try his best to matchmake this marriage.
In a persons life, be it a close friend, a child, or a close relative, they would eventually leave.
And the ones who accompanied him day and night were husband and wife.
He really did not want his only daughter to be so lonely.
Madam Chen echoed gently, “I want to too.”
Both husband and wife wanted to, but everything was up to fate.
Su Chong and the other two walked on the quiet street.
It was late at night, and every family was already asleep.
Zhou Heng suddenly said, “Ah Chong, Ah Hua, when we reach the capital, Ill separate from you.
As for Third Uncle and Third Aunt, I thought about it and decided not to tell them.
Its better if they dont know some things.
At that time, just treat it as me going home.”
He knew too well how Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao treated him.
If they knew that he was in danger, Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao would probably be worried about him.
Therefore, it was best if they did not know.
It was better to let them think that he had gone home.
Even if they did not see each other again in the future, it was better to let them think that he was cold than worried about him.
Su Hua agreed.
Su Chong reached out and wanted to touch Zhou Hengs head.
In the end, he stopped and patted Zhou Hengs shoulder instead.
“Little Brother Heng, if you really encounter trouble, tell us secretly.
Even if I cant help you openly, its good to help you secretly.
We grew up together, and youre my Third Brother.”
Su Hua also smiled.
He reached out and put his arm around Zhou Hengs shoulder.
“Big Brother is right.
What do you mean by cutting contact Just do your best.
You dont have to take it seriously.”
The two brothers each took Zhou Hengs left shoulder and his right shoulder.
How could their friendship of nearly ten years disappear just like that
Zhou Heng was deeply touched.
He gulped and swallowed all the sobs.
He smiled and nodded.
“Yes, I know.”
The three of them smiled.
Their proud and complacent eyes were as dazzling as the stars.
After returning home, they went back to their rooms to rest.
On the 17th day of the first lunar month, the entire family prepared some dry rations at home and fermented and baked white pancakes with white flour.
This kind of dry food could be stored for a long time and was suitable for traveling.
The Sun residence called Su Hua over.
Su Hua only returned at noon.
Lin Pingsheng still had connections in the capital, and so did the Sun family.
Su Hua was the son-in-law chosen by their residence.
During the Spring Quarter Examinations, his connections would definitely be used by Su Hua.
Su Xiaolu had prepared a lot of herbs for emergencies.
In the afternoon, the sound of gongs and drums suddenly sounded outside.
The sound seemed to be coming this way.
Madam Zhao was a little puzzled.
“Sanlang, which family is celebrating today Why havent I heard of it before”
They had lived in the town for a long time and had a good relationship with the neighbors.
If anything good happened, they would go out and walk around.
The sound of gongs and drums outside was getting closer and closer.
That was their alley.
Madam Zhao knew all the families living in this alley and got along well with them.
However, she had not heard anything about any of them recently.
Su Sanlang also said in confusion, “Im not sure.
I didnt hear anything either”
“Ill go out and take a look.
Im afraid Ive been too busy recently and missed the news.
Ill go and see who it is.
We still have to maintain a good relationship with the neighbors.”
In any case, the dry food was almost ready.
After saying that, Madam Zhao wiped her hands on her apron and left.
Su Xiaoling smiled and said, “Father, just leave us here.
You should go take a look too.”
Su Sanlang thought for a moment, then nodded and followed her out.
Su Xiaolu was brewing medicine in a corner of the courtyard and slowly fanning herself with a small fan.
Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang came out and stopped outside the house when they heard the sound of gongs and drums.
The couple looked puzzled.
Then, there was a knock on the door, accompanied by the matchmakers unique voice.
“Is the Su family home Please open the door to greet and receive the gifts.”
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were stunned.
Su Xiaolu was stunned.
What was going on
Madam Zhao opened the door with doubts.
As soon as she opened the door, the sound of gongs and drums immediately sounded.
There was a burst of celebratory laughter.
The matchmaker also smiled and said, “Congratulations, congratulations.”
All the neighbors on the left and right heard the noise and came out to take a look.
Even Madam Qian and Chen Hu came out with puzzled expressions.
Madam Zhao frowned and reached out to signal everyone to stop.
Su Sanlang also came over.
The matchmaker smiled and reached out to suppress the noise.
The sound of the gong and drum stopped.
The matchmaker smiled and bowed to Su Sanlang.
Then, she said, “Hello, Master Su, Madam Su.
Today, the magpies are chirping.
A happy occasion has descended on the Su family.
It turns out that the Yan familys young master was interested and specially came to propose to the daughter of the Su family.
When the two of them become a pair, the Su and Yan families will marry.”
“Here are 20 quintals of betrothal gifts.
Old Master and Madam Su, please count them.”
The matchmaker smiled and handed over the gift list.
Su Sanlangs expression turned cold and he immediately shouted angrily, “Shut up.
Go back to where you came from.
I dont know any Mr.
Yan, let alone marry my daughter to him! Hurry up and carry all your things away.
Otherwise, dont blame me for being rude to you.”
Madam Zhao, who had reacted, was also furious.
She saw Madam Zhang and asked, “Madam Zhang, what do you mean I didnt communicate with you.
Why did you do such a thing”
Ever since they met last time, Madam Zhao had no intention of continuing the conversation with the Yan family.
After that day, she did not contact Madam Zhang again.
Usually, in such a situation, everyone knew that there was no chance and would give up.
