Those words made Ning Meng Yao unhappy and she put down the hoe. Her eyes turned slightly cold as she looked at Yang Xiu Er, “Even though I have my own things to do, didn’t I stop to teach you? You’ve asked so many questions, but are you able to remember all that you’ve learned? Are you sure you’re that talented?”
Ning Meng Yao could not be blamed for saying such hurtful words because Yang Xiu Er had made her feel uncomfortable by stepping out of line.
Yang Xiu Er’s face became pale in an instant as she pointed her trembling finger at Ning Meng Yao, “I only wanted to learn from you and earn some more money, why are you saying things like this to me?”
“Learning also has its own pace. If you don’t bother my daily activities then I will teach you, but I will not turn around for you,” Ning Meng Yao was not the least guilty about Yang Xiu Er’s situation and told her off coldly.
Yang Xiu Er examined Ning Meng Yao as a whole before taking her basket as she ran away while clutching her face. Ning Meng Yao even heard her wail.
Ning Meng Yao watched Yang Xiu Er’s back as she disappeared. Her eyes remained cold as she put her hoe back before taking out a barrel to the creek to scoop some water to water the vegetables.
After Yang Xiu Er returned to the village, there were some villagers who noticed that her eyes were swollen red and found it strange. Didn’t she go out to search for the girl who came from who knows where? Why did she come back in such a state?
When Madam Luo saw her own daughter, she wanted to ask whether Ning Meng Yao had taught her or not, but she became unhappy when she saw her daughter’s state, “Xiu Er, why are you like this? Who bullied you?”
“Mother… Why did she treat me so coldly? I just wanted to learn from her, but she became mad at me and belittled me,” Yang Xiu Er threw herself into her mother’s embrace while crying loudly.
There were villagers who were by the side. They began to make a fuss when they heard Yang Xiu Er.
The villagers originally did not have any good feelings towards Ning Meng Yao. She arrived at the village out of the blue and then stayed at the small cottage at the foot of the mountain. The villagers could not help but have suspicions of her, to the extent of thinking that Ning Meng Yao might be a bad person.
And now, the villagers’ voices became louder after hearing Yang Xiu Er’s words.
“Don’t speak such nonsense, Yao Yao is not that kind of person.” In the midst of the crowd, a girl’s voice cut through the heated discussion with an explosive temper.
The crowd turned their head to see the village head’s daughter, Yang Le Le.
Although Yang Le Le’s was not tall, she was raised well in a well-off family. She had a chubby face, so she looked like a delicious meat bun when she frowned.
“Le Le, what are you saying? Are you saying that Xiu Er is lying?” Madam Luo looked at Yang Le Le in displease.
Yang Le Le let out a ‘heng’ and looked at Yang Xiu Er in disdain, “Yao Yao is not this kind of person. Although she is somewhat cold, but she is a nice person. When I went to look for help in embroidering, she not only helped me, but also gave me delicious snacks to eat. Also…when a village’s child accidentally ran to her house, she did not get angry. Instead, she let him take a bath and even gave him some things to eat….”
After saying Ning Meng Yao’s deeds one after another, she looked at Yang Xiu Er, “Although I don’t know what happened between Yang Xiu Er and Yao Yao at her house, I believe Yao Yao is not that kind of person so don’t you dare slander her.”
No matter how the villagers viewed Ning Meng Yao, Yang Le Le would not believe it. In her heart, Ning Meng Yao was a good person.
The people who listened to Yang Xiu Er became a little awkward. The children who heard Yang Le Le’s immediately ran over, their eyes glimmering while looking at the crowd, “Big Sister Meng Yao is very nice to us.”
“That’s right, that’s right. Big Sister Meng Yao is really nice,” A few other children also jumped in to nod their heads continuously.
After the children went to Ning Meng Yao’s house, they often ran to Ning Meng Yao’s place to play or pick beautiful flowers outside her cottage. Every time they came, she never got angry; she even gave them candies and delicious snacks.
