Mother Chen was not to be outdone. “Stop saying such shameless things. My family was just asking family, but you agreed as soon as you heard that you could snatch business from Su Sanlang. Now, you’re dreaming.”
The two families looked at each other fiercely.
The atmosphere was extremely cold.
Everyone arrived in town together and saw that the business of the shop opposite was booming. Jealousy and resentment were written all over the faces of both families.
And when their shop opened, there was no one at all.
Some of the passing customers wanted to ask questions, but when they saw that they couldn’t taste it, they turned away and headed for the opposite shop.
Because they were angry, neither family was kind. When people saw this, they were also very uncomfortable. People did not spend money to be given this treatment.
Father Su said, “Dalang, go buy two catties and see how different the taste is.”
Su Dalang nodded and he went over to buy it.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao brought along Chen Daniu, Chen Erniu and Su Xiaoling. Everyone greeted the guests with a smile. Whoever wanted to try it and buy it would be greeted well.
After tasting it and not buying it, they all happily said, “Take care.”
Tomorrow was the new year, so they would not open a shop during the new year. Therefore, many customers would buy more.
They were carrying more today.
Seeing that Su Dalang had come to buy, Madam Zhao paused. Su Sanlang’s expression was normal. “What do you want to buy? You can try it here first.”
Su Dalang’s face was cold as he said impatiently, “A catty each. Hurry up.”
Didn’t he know what he was here to buy? Did he have to ask? How annoying.
Su Dalang had emotions, but Su Sanlang did not. He helped pack neatly. When Su Dalang paid, he gently said, “Take care, guest.”
Madam Zhao glanced at the opposite side and frowned, but she quickly stopped thinking about it. That was someone else’s business. What did it have to do with her? She just had to take care of her family.
When Su Dalang bought it back, Old Master Su and the Wang family immediately tasted it. When they compared it to their own family’s, their expressions immediately darkened.
Father Chen and Mother Chen also tasted it and immediately looked fiercely at Madam Yang and Madam Wu.
Mother Chen pinched them. “Damn b*tches, didn’t you say that the taste was exactly the same? Didn’t you say that you could also do what she did? You’ve already squandered all our family assets. Damn b*tches, I’ll beat you to death…”
Madam Yang and Madam Wu were crying bitterly. They had never thought that this would happen.
Su Sanlang’s family had been separated for more than a year. They hadn’t eaten it since last year and had forgotten the taste. This was the taste of their own sauerkraut.
But now that they suffered a loss, someone from both families had to bear this blame, and they were just the ones taking the blame.
They were just saying it casually, but the ones who were really in charge were Father Chen and Mother Chen.
But at this moment, how could Madam Yang and Madam Wu dare to resist? They could only silently hate her in their hearts.
They hated such in-laws and useless men. They also hated Madam Qian and Madam Zhao.
Passers-by hurried past and left after taking a look at the commotion.
Old Master Su felt embarrassed. He called his family over coldly and left. “We’ll settle this when we get home.”
The Su family left.
The Chen family looked at the unsold sauerkraut and pickles with extremely ugly expressions.
“Mother, what should we do?”
Chen Long was very irritated.
Father Chen and Mother Chen’s expressions were also not good. Father Chen gritted his teeth and said, “What else can we do? Let’s go home first.”
So they hurriedly closed the shop and went home.
Across the street, the store quickly closed and left. Su Sanlang watched.
If their own business was good, they could sell them all in less than a day.
Husband and wife looked at each other. Some things were understood without words. They entertained their guests and saved the talking for later.
Su Xiaolu had given Sun Baoqian and Brother Baoshan acupuncture in advance today. She made medicinal cuisine for them.
When she brought the yellowish medicinal cuisine to Sun Baoqian and Sun Baoshan, both of them were eager to try it.
Madam Lian looked worried.
Su Xiaolu smiled and said, “Auntie, this is the medicinal cuisine I made for Sister Baoqian and Brother Baoshan. I won’t be coming tomorrow. They just need to eat this to clear the poison.”
Zhou Heng had finished the medicinal cuisine she made last time. It should not be too bad.
This was what she consoled herself with. However, when she made this yellow medicinal cuisine, she did not taste much. It was quite bitter, but the medicinal properties were very good. Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian should have a bowl of it in the morning and at night.
“You don’t have to eat it today. Just a bowl each morning and night tomorrow will do. I’ll go back with my Master later. Auntie, I wish you and your family a happy New Year in advance.”
Su Xiaolu said with a smile.
During this period of time, Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian’s complexion had improved a lot. Both of them had gained a few catties of weight.
“Happy New Year to you too, Xiaolu. Then let’s meet again next year.”
Sun Baoqian smiled at Su Xiaolu.
Sun Baoshan also said, “Xiaolu, happy New Year to you and your family.”
Madam Lian stroked Su Xiaolu’s hair. “Thank you, Xiaolu.”
The medicinal cuisine did not seem to have changed much, but Su Xiaolu would get much better if she went to the kitchen every day to learn.
After Su Xiaolu made arrangements for the Sun family, she left the Sun residence with Old Wu. She went to her shop to meet up with Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao. When the time came, they would go home together.
When they arrived, all the sauerkraut and pickles for the day had also been sold out. Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were washing the large wooden barrels used to store vegetables.
“Hey, they closed early across the street.”
When he arrived at the shop, he saw that the door opposite was closed. He mocked him mercilessly.
Su Xiaolu smiled and ran to Su Xiaoling’s side. She asked softly, “Sister, did they not come today?”
Could it be that they had suffered a huge blow yesterday and couldn’t continue with their business, so they decided not to come today?
Su Xiaoling smiled and said, “They opened the shop today and even came to ours to buy some for comparison. Then, they closed the shop angrily.”
Su Xiaolu said, “I see.”
She was already looking forward to going back early. Perhaps there would be a good show.
The Su family was very cooperative with the Chen family to collect vegetables and open a shop. It was really very annoying. However, Madam Qian said that when she used to make sauerkraut and pickles, Madam Yang and Madam Wu, Chen Long’s wives, never helped. They just watched. They could not make it like her.
Since they wanted to steal the business and deliberately opened the shop opposite, so be it. The loser would know.
Su Xiaoling looked at Su Xiaolu mischievously and pinched Su Xiaolu’s cheek. “You.”
She knew her sister would be happy with this outcome, because she was happy too.
The two sisters looked at each other and saw the evil smile in each other’s eyes.
Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu also smiled.
Not long after, Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao were done packing up. Su Chong and Su Hua also came from school. The family carried their things and left the town to go home together.
When they got home, Su Chong and Su Hua taught Zhou Heng and Su Xiaoling today’s knowledge.
On the other hand, Su Xiaolu added a small stove in the kitchen and began to brew the ointment. She said to Madam Zhao and Su Sanlang, “This is the scar removal medicine for Auntie. I’ve just gathered it these two days. Since I’m at home during the new year, I’ll brew them.”
