Su Xiaoling’s face was also red. She whispered, “You’re thinking too much. Look at Eldest Brother and Second Brother. They don’t have the mood at all.”
With so many women around, Su Xiaoling had to think of herself. She was 14 years old this year and was also old enough to be married, so she couldn’t help but blush.
But looking at Big Brother and Second Brother helping without blushing or panting, she knew that these women were going to be disappointed.
Her eldest brother and second brother probably had no intention of getting married yet.
And these marriageable women could not possibly wait years for an uncertain event.
Su Xiaolu sighed when she heard that.
As his sister had said, Big Brother and Second Brother did not have such thoughts at all.
They faced these women calmly.
The sauerkraut sold out, and the family quickly washed the tools and left town together for home.
Chen Hu’s family came over to help. Madam Qian was also out of confinement a few days ago. Chen Hu’s fourth child was a son. He was only a month old and had yet to be named. She carried the child over to help with the fire. Chen Hu, Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu helped to cook.
Chen Shi ran to Su Chong and the others. He looked up at them with admiration and congratulated them happily.
Now that they were back, the two families naturally had to eat together to celebrate.
Madam Cao had also asked Su Xiaozhi and Hu Shuangshuang to help.
Su Xiaozhi was a little distant from them, but Madam Zhao didn’t take it seriously.
Su Sanlang did not pay much attention to it. It was fine as long as they got along normally.
Hu Changyang also chased after Su Chong and the others to listen to their conversation. Hu Changshou also went. He was very envious. He would not have a chance to study, but it was good to recognize words and listen.
Su Xiaolu was dragged to practice her swordsmanship.
Su Xiaolu listened to the commotion next door and refused to give up. “Master Gui You, don’t you feel sorry for me at all? Don’t you care if I’m tired, hungry, or thirsty? Are you going to hit me as soon as I come back?”
Gui You raised his eyebrows and narrowed his eyes. “You’ve been gone for more than ten days. You were supposed to come back after the exam, but you went to the wedding banquet? I see you’ve gained weight. How dare you complain to me?”
Gui You drew his sword, and his eyes turned cold. “Be quick. If you’re like your brother, I won’t train you. You don’t have the talent, and you’re lazy and greedy. I’m your master. How can I not loosen your muscles?”
After saying that, Gui You tugged at Su Xiaolu’s hair in disdain. “Do you think I want to train you? I want to be like your master and leave early to have fun, but you’re not that hardworking. Damn girl, stop joking. Hurry up.”
Su Xiaolu was not as talented in martial arts as she was in medicine.
She could only practice more.
It was really easy for Su Xiaolu to learn medicine, so she graduated quickly.
However, her foundation in martial arts had only stabilized in the past few years. Her martial arts skills were not bad. If he said that she was an expert, it would be overestimating her. If he let her graduate from her tutelage like this, he would lose face.
Seeing that begging was useless, Su Xiaolu accepted her fate.
Catching the sword Gui You threw at her, her expression changed, and she stabbed fiercely at Gui You.
Gui You easily dodged Su Xiaolu’s sharp sword.
Gui You did not even draw his sword and just fought with Su Xiaolu barehanded.
Su Xiaolu used all her moves, but her sword was knocked out of her hand many times.
Her arms were swollen and sore everywhere.
She had used up all her energy and fell to the ground, unable to get up again. Only then did Gui You stand up with his hands behind his back and say, “Although you haven’t fallen behind, you haven’t improved either. I’ll let you off today. After resting for a while, it’s time to eat.”
With that, Gui You took a breath and crossed the wall to the opposite side.
After practicing a few moves with the little girl, he was a little tired. He could go and eat something delicious first.
Su Xiaolu lay in the courtyard, hurting everywhere. Master Gui You was really ruthless.
What worked with the old man didn’t work with Master Gui You.
Su Xiaolu sighed. Then, she endured the pain and sat up, circulating her Internal Breath to relax.
After a few weeks, the soreness in her body had subsided. At this moment, Su Xiaoling came in from outside and asked with concern, “Xiaolu, how is it?”
Su Xiaolu asked, “Sis, is it time to eat?”
Stinky Master Gui You had timed it perfectly.
Su Xiaoling nodded and walked to Su Xiaolu’s side to help her up. “The dishes are ready. Master Gui You asked me to call you.”
Su Xiaolu leaned against Su Xiaoling and asked, “What dish is it today? Did Master Gui You secretly eat it?”
Su Xiaoling smiled and said, “You liked all the dishes today. Master Gui You ate some.”
Su Xiaolu gritted her teeth. “Damn it. One day, I will definitely defeat this stinky master. At that time, I will be number one in the world!”
“Girl, dream on. The new number one in the world can only be your big brother. You have no chance.”
Gui You came out of the courtyard with a large bowl of food and mercilessly shattered Su Xiaolu’s beautiful fantasy.
‘You wish, girl.’
Su Xiaolu’s eyes widened and she almost cried. This damn reality. Ahhh, she was so angry, but she had no choice. She was not talented enough in martial arts.
Gui You snorted coldly and carried the food back to the house to eat.
He didn’t like the bustle, so at this point, he used a large bowl to get some of his favorite food and carried it back next door to eat it himself.
Su Xiaoling smiled and comforted Su Xiaolu. “It’s okay, Xiaolu. Big Brother is our biological brother. He defeated Gui You. It’s equivalent to you defeating him.”
Su Xiaolu was comforted.
Two tables were set out in the central room, one for the adults and one for the children.
But today, Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng were the main characters, so they also sat on the side of the adults.
Everyone had a glass and raised it in a toast.
Su Sanlang held his wine glass and looked at the three of them. He said gently, “Chong, Hua, and Heng, I congratulate you.”
“Come, come, come. Let’s congratulate Chong, Hua, and Heng on becoming Elementary Scholars.”
Chen Hu said with a smile, and the atmosphere became lively.
“Chong. Hua. I wish you all the best in the future.”
Su Xiaozhi smiled. At this moment, she was really happy for her two nephews.
Looking at Zhou Heng, Su Xiaozhi also said, “Heng, I wish you well too. If your parents know, they will definitely be very happy.”
Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng also stood up with their wine glasses.
The three of them smiled and said, “Okay.”
“Big Brother, Second Brother, Brother Zhou Heng, we also wish you success in your studies and dreams.”
Su Xiaolu also said loudly.
Chen Daniu and Chen Erniu also raised their glasses.
Hu Shuangshuang and her siblings did the same.
“Okay, we’ll all get what we want. Let’s drink to that first.”
Su Chong and the other two were also smiling. After so many years of getting along, everyone cared for each other. They were getting older each and did not know what would happen in the future, but they congratulated all of them on their success.
