Chapter 163: Can You Accept Little Brother Heng Too?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
From her perspective, these were things she should have done for her family.
She enjoyed the love of her parents, big brother, second brother, and third sister, so it was only right for her to do something for them.
Madam Zhao’s heart was filled with sweetness. She looked at Su Xiaolu and said gently, ” Simei, it’s my blessing to have you.”
She could not remember the first half of her life. The painful memories of her being circulated everywhere and the days of being tortured by Madam Wang after marrying Su Sanlang ended after Su Xiaolu was born. She lived better and happier every year.
All the good luck could not be separated from Su Xiaolu. It was her blessing to be able to give birth to Su Xiaolu.
Su Xiaolu smiled. Her heart was warm. The reason why she tried so hard to repay this family was that this family loved her with all their heart.
At home, Su Sanlang froze when he saw Teacher Lin.
Lin Pingsheng put the basket down and smiled warmly at him.
He was not as cold as he had been the first time. He cupped his hands in greeting.
Su Sanlang didn’t know what to do. He waved his hand and said, “You’re welcome, Teacher Lin.”
Lin Pingsheng said gently, “I’m sorry to disturb you. I came here this time to take Su Chong and Su Hua as my disciples. I hope you can agree. I promise to teach them with all my heart and everything I’ve learned in my life.”
Su Sanlang understood. This was a good thing.
He suppressed his excitement and said to Lin Pingsheng, “Thank you, Teacher Lin, for thinking highly of them. If they are willing, I have no objections.”
Su Sanlang looked at Su Chong and Su Hua and said.
Since Lin Pingsheng was here, it proved that he was very sincere, and Su Sanlang told the truth readily.
He understood that students and personal disciples were different. The young masters and young ladies of the Sun residence had all invited Lin Pingsheng to be a teacher. This proved that Lin Pingsheng was really talented. How could he not agree to take such a person as his son’s disciple?
” Chong, Hua, are you willing to become Teacher’s disciples?”
Su Sanlang asked Su Chong and Su Hua seriously.
Su Chong and Su Hua looked at each other. The two of them did not nod immediately. Su Hua looked at Lin Pingsheng and said, “Teacher, I want to ask if you are willing to accept Little Brother Heng as well. Little Brother Heng is also very smart. Big Brother and I were taught by him.”
Su Chong and Su Hua were willing to accept such a good thing, but they did not want to leave Zhou Heng behind.
Undoubtedly, both of them treated Zhou Heng as their real brother.
Zhou Heng had always known that Su Chong and Su Hua were good to him, but he did not expect them to be so good. They did not care about benefits. They were really really really good.
Before Lin Pingsheng could speak, Zhou Heng said, “Teacher, don’t worry about me. It’s enough to accept Chong and Hua. I’ll also work hard and try to pass every year.”
He could also learn from Teacher Lin every year as long as he completed his exams.
If Su Chong and Su Hua missed such a good master because of him, it would be his fault.
Lin Pingsheng looked at Zhou Heng and said, “Your family is not here. If you don’t mind, you can also be my outer sect disciple. You and I don’t have a master-disciple relationship, but there’s no difference in treatment.”
He had asked Zhou Heng during Zhou Heng’s entrance examination, but Zhou Heng only said that his parents were not here and was unwilling to reveal anything else.
During this period of observation, he realized that Zhou Heng was broad-minded and had a lot of ideas. He did not look like a child from an ordinary family. If he was here, perhaps he had something to hide.
He was happy to accept Zhou Heng, but after all, he had to go through his parents to accept a personal disciple.
Therefore, as an outer sect disciple, Zhou Heng had no master-disciple status with him, and the treatment was the best.
Zhou Heng cupped his hands and bowed respectfully. “Thank you, Teacher.”
Lin Pingsheng nodded. “Yes, get up.”
Lin Pingsheng looked at Su Chong and Su Hua and asked seriously, “Su Chong, Su Hua, are the two of you willing to acknowledge me as your master and inherit everything I’ve learned in my life?”
Su Chong and Su Hua looked delighted. Both of them knelt down and kowtowed. They said respectfully in unison, “I’m willing.”
Lin Pingsheng smiled and nodded. “Alright, then I’ll discuss a good day with your parents today and invite your relatives and friends to be witnesses.”
As he spoke, Lin Pingsheng helped Su Chong and Su Hua up.
He took in Su Chong and Su Hua as his disciples. He had the responsibility to teach them well.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao did not expect him to be so cautious. Lin Pingsheng also explained to them very patiently.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao understood after hearing this. Doing such a thing would only benefit their family.
Su Sanlang accompanied Lin Pingsheng to discuss, and Madam Zhao went to cook with Madam Qian.
In the courtyard, Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng were teaching Su Xiaoling, Chen Daniu, and Chen Erniu some knowledge.
In the evening, the two families had a meal together.
Su Sanlang brought out good wine. Lin Pingsheng also liked to drink. Since he was going to take in disciples, he naturally had to understand this family and let them understand him at the same time.
The meal lasted a long time.
Su Sanlang and Chen Hu’s families also learned that Lin Pingsheng was actually number three in the national examinations. That was an achievement that all imperial examination students dreamed of.
It was also a pity that his daughter had been injured and disfigured.
Lin Pingsheng also knew the reason why Su Sanlang and Chen Hu left their families. Naturally, he also knew why Su Sanlang was blind.
The women and children had already tactfully retreated from the table.
It was late at night and Lin Pingsheng was drunk. He still said to Su Sanlang and Chen Hu, “Don’t worry, I’ll teach Ah Chong and Ah Hua well. They are bright and will definitely be successful. Time will prove that you did the right thing. Those pedantic people will regret it.”
“When Chen Shi grows up, I’ll also teach him. His parents are good in both character and academics. The children they give birth to won’t be bad. Even if he doesn’t have astonishing talent, he can rely on his hard work to become a High Scholar.”
“Thank you, Teacher.”
Chen Hu’s eyes turned red and he thanked him in tears.
Lin Pingsheng was drunk.
Chen Hu was also drunk, and so was Su Sanlang.
Su Xiaolu prepared hangover soup for them and let the three of them drink it.
When he woke up, Su Chong and Su Hua took Lin Pingsheng to the house to sleep.
Chen Hu and Madam Qian also brought their children home.
Madam Zhao helped Su Sanlang lie down. Su Sanlang hugged Madam Zhao tightly and said, “Darling, I’m so happy today.”
Madam Zhao also smiled. So was she.
Although he was awake, he felt sleepy and quickly drifted into a dream.
The next morning, Madam Zhao and Madam Qian woke up early to make breakfast.
Madam Qian whispered to Madam Zhao, “Sister-in-law, last night, Hu said to me that Shi can go to school in the future. When the time comes, I’ll definitely let him study hard and make me proud.”
It would be a lie to say that she was relieved in that family. If her son could be successful and block all the bad things, her heart would be truly at ease.
