She had been a disciple for two lifetimes, but she had always been silent. She would just bring a cup of respectful tea and be done with it.
Su Xiaolu was a little emotional.
In her previous life, she was picked up by an old Chinese doctor and raised as a granddaughter. However, seeing that she was sensible and liked to learn Chinese medicine, he seriously took her in as a disciple.
It was just a cup of tea and a change of address.
It was the same in this life. The old man kept his word, and his parents listened to him.
The old man naturally cherished his little disciple and refused to publicize it because he didn’t want to cause trouble.
“You’re different, Xiaolu.”
Lin Pingsheng said gently. He was afraid that Su Xiaolu would feel sad.
Su Xiaolu smiled sweetly and said, “I know that my master doesn’t like to interact with others, but I’m different. When I take in disciples in the future, I must hold a big banquet.”
Minggu Medical Valley had always kept a low profile. She decided to be high-profile for once.
Lin Pingsheng couldn’t help but smile when he saw how smart and lively she was. He thought that if that day really came, he would definitely go for a drink.
Lin Yaoyao looked at the energetic Su Xiaolu with envy. She remembered when she was young and was as energetic as Su Xiaolu.
If she hadn’t been disfigured, she wondered if she would have become the person she wanted to be.
They were about to reach the shop when Lin Pingsheng saw that Su Chong and Su Hua were also helping to attract customers. He couldn’t help but ask Su Xiaolu, “Xiaolu, do your two brothers usually do this at home?”
Madam Chen was also very surprised. The two scholars really had no worries at all. It was very rare for students to be able to work for their families while studying.
Su Xiaolu nodded. “Big Brother and Second Brother have always been like this. They help with the spring and autumn harvest. They’re not like other scholars at all. They’re the best, and so is Brother Zhou Heng.”
Lin Pingsheng looked at the two students who didn’t care about trifles at all and there was a hint of admiration in his eyes. He said, “Their character is the best I’ve ever taught.”
He couldn’t even do this when he was studying back then. Thinking of his late mother, Lin Pingsheng could only sigh with regret.
“Big Brother, Second Brother.”
Su Xiaolu was already running towards Su Chong and Su Hua.
Su Chong and Su Hua were helping to greet the guests while Zhou Heng was helping to weigh the goods.
Hearing Su Xiaolu’s voice, they all smiled at her.
“Xiaolu, Brother Hua said you were coming soon. We can go home together again.”
Su Chong said happily. He hoped that Sun Baoshan and Sun Baoqian would recover soon so that he could see his sister every day.
Su Xiaolu nodded. “Big Brother, Second Brother, I have a surprise for you.”
Su Hua came to Su Xiaolu’s side and ruffled her hair. “You must be tired from running. Go in and drink some water to rest.”
Before Su Chong could ask what the surprise was, he saw the teacher walking toward him.
Su Chong suddenly stopped smiling and became serious.
Su Hua looked over and also saw Lin Pingsheng. He couldn’t help but stop smiling, but when he thought that it was after school, he wasn’t as nervous as Su Chong. He nodded slightly and greeted, “Greetings, Teacher.”
Lin Pingsheng nodded. “No need for formalities.”
Madam Qian and Madam Zhao, who were in the shop, also saw Lin Pingsheng’s family.
Lin Pingsheng walked into the shop, looked at Madam Zhao, and said, “I am Lin Pingsheng, Su Chong and Su Hua’s teacher. I have something to discuss with you today.”
“You don’t have to worry about us. Finish selling these first.”
Lin Pingsheng said politely and led Madam Chen and Lin Yaoyao to the side.
Madam Qian and Madam Zhao came back to their senses and nodded.
Su Chong and Su Hua quickly adapted and greeted the guests warmly.
Su Xiaolu followed them. When she met her regular customers, her smile became even sweeter.
Lin Pingsheng’s family waited at the side, but it did not affect them.
The Su family had always been like that. Everyone was busy with their own things.
When the sale was over and customers came to ask, they all smiled and explained.
Madam Qian was worried and whispered to Madam Zhao, “Sister-in-law, let me clean up this place. Go talk to Teacher.”
Su Chong and Su Hua couldn’t help but follow Madam Zhao. They reflected for a long time but couldn’t figure out what they had done wrong.
They wondered why the teacher had come.
Because Su Xiaolu had come running, no one had associated her with Lin Pingsheng’s family.
When Lin Pingsheng saw Madam Zhao walking over, he nodded gently.
Madam Zhao stepped forward and said gently, “Teacher Lin, why are you looking for us?”
Lin Pingsheng looked at Su Chong and Su Hua and said, “I want to take Su Chong and Su Hua as my disciples. I’ll do my best to teach them knowledge, so I’m here to discuss with you.”
Madam Zhao was relieved. She looked at Su Chong and Su Hua before saying to Lin Pingsheng, “Master Lin, please forgive me for not being able to give you an answer now. I have to ask my husband’s opinion and also the two children’s own opinion before I can give you an answer.”
Lin Pingsheng nodded in understanding. “Yes, that’s what I was thinking. Sorry for disturbing you today.”
Lin Pingsheng felt that Madam Zhao’s words were very magnanimous.
Lin Pingsheng said to Madam Chen and Lin Yaoyao, “Madam, bring Yaoyao home today.”
He had to meet Su Sanlang personally, and it wasn’t convenient for him to bring Madam Chen and his daughter along now.
Madam Chen nodded. She smiled and said, “I know. I’ll go home with Yaoyao first.”
There were still many people outside. Madam Chen didn’t call Su Xiaolu. She smiled and waved at her before bringing Lin Yaoyao home.
Su Xiaolu waved her hand happily.
Madam Zhao saw that Lin Pingsheng had the intention to go back with them. Madam Zhao quietly went to Madam Qian’s side and said, “Sister-in-law, I’ll have to trouble you to cook those dishes tonight. My culinary skills are not as good as yours.”
Madam Qian smiled and nodded. Lin Pingsheng wanted to take Su Chong and Su Hua as his disciples. This was a great thing. She would definitely use her specialty to cook.
This was a surprise for Su Chong and Su Hua.
It meant they didn’t have to worry about getting kicked out of school.
But how could such a good thing have fallen to them, neither of them could understand.
On the way back, Lin Pingsheng also helped carry a wooden bucket. He insisted on helping.
Madam Zhao could not reject him. As she watched Lin Pingsheng talk to Su Chong and Su Hua along the way, Madam Zhao felt warm in her heart. Her sons had met a good teacher.
Madam Zhao held Su Xiaolu’s hand and looked at her gently. She whispered, “Simei, I thank you on behalf of your eldest brother and second brother.”
Seeing Madam Chen wave goodbye to Su Xiaolu, Madam Zhao understood that Teacher Lin’s family had come with Su Xiaolu. If Teacher Lin wanted to take Su Chong and Su Hua as his disciples, it must be because her youngest daughter had treated Lin Yaoyao’s face.
Su Xiaolu looked up and smiled at Madam Zhao. She said softly, “Mother, you don’t have to thank me. We’re family.”
