Chapter 2 Snatching the Milksop Hero’s Pie


As an only child, Su Tao did not know how to coax children.
She immediately felt stressed out.

Finally resigning herself to her fate, she took off Su Zhi’s shoes for him.
Then, she carried the baby, Su Dou, out of the basket and coaxed him impatiently, “Brat, stop crying.
Your crying is causing me a headache.”

“Sister, my feet hurt.
Boohoo…” Su Zhi sat down on the ground and cried, touching his eyes with his hands.

Su Tao was beaten upon waking up, and before she had time to digest what had happened, she was faced with two crybabies who were bawling non-stop.
Su Tao was on the verge of breaking down and said fiercely with arms akimbo, “Cry, cry, cry.
I’ll throw you into the ditch and drown you if you still cry.” She pointed at the ditch on one side.

The ditch was too shallow to drown anyone, but children were afraid.

Su Zhi was frightened.
He sobbed as he tried to restrain his tears.
After a while, Su Dou also stopped crying.

The crying finally stopped.
Su Tao heaved a sigh of relief, and put Su Dou back into the basket.
“Hurry, get up.
You’ll be beaten again if you go back late.” Speaking of being beaten, her whole body ached.
She was sure marks were left on her body.

Her mom? She’s clearly an enemy.

“Sister, the shoes are too big…” Su Zhi pointed at the shoes and looked at her timidly, afraid that she would throw him into the river.

Su Tao stared at him for a while, resisted the urge to knead his face a few times, and quickly squatted down to tie his shoelaces.
What evil did she do in her previous life? Her worst crime was just being lazy.

However, that was because she had a rich father who indulged her.
She had never been short of money.

She became depressed at the thought of this.
She would definitely not be able to make a fortune in a farming novel.

   How would a useless person like her become rich…

At this time, she heard a young woman's gentle coaxing voice.
“Yuntang, good boy, take another meat pie.
Eat it when you get tired from studying.
Take the water too.
Your grandma added honey for you.”

   “Mom, I don't want to eat the meat pie.
You eat it with Dad.” The boy had a soft voice.


Xie Yuntang?


Her target!


   Su Tao immediately located the source of the sound.
What caught her gaze first was a fair young child who was wearing an off-white scholar's robe, looking cute and handsome.


To think that the hero looks like this.

It doesn't seem like he’ll become a villain.

The system is perverted indeed.
To think that it wants to turn this cute child into a villain.

The woman next to him coaxed nicely, “Be good, take it.
You’ll be hungry after studying, and you’ll feel unwell when you’re hungry.” After saying that, she stuffed the pie into his hands.
Then, she took out several coins from her bosom and passed them to him.

She continued to say, “When you're tired from studying, go to the entrance of the village to buy some snacks.
When your father comes back later, you’ll get to eat sugar people.”
(Note: Sugar people is a traditional Chinese form of folk art using hot, liquid sugar to create three-dimensional figures)


Her gentle manner is completely different from Lin Sanzhu's.
They are poles apart!


The pampered hero will grow up and become a villain? Like hell!


I’m more likely to become a villain!


Looking at the golden-brown meat pie, Su Tao gulped and her stomach rumbled again involuntarily.

Why does the hero have delicious food, whereas I have to work, babysit and be beaten?


She felt resentful all of a sudden.

Probably because her gaze was too “intense”, the milksop, Xie Yuntang, glanced at her.
However, he soon retracted his gaze and obediently headed towards the study hall, carrying his school bag on his back.

Xie Yuntang's mother, Mrs.
Xie-Qin, caught up with him worriedly and negotiated nicely, “Yuntang, shall I take you to school?”

Her son insisted on not letting them take him to school.
He would be unhappy if they did.

“No, Mom, go back.” Xie Yuntang waved his hand.
He looked so cute that one's heart would soften.


Xie-Qin had no choice but to go back reluctantly.

After Mrs.
Xie-Qin walked into the yard, Su Tao was so tempted by the meat pie that she could think of nothing but the meat pie.

She struggled in her mind, and then chased after Xie Yuntang with the baby and child in tow.
She snatched his pie like a devil while he looked at her with ignorant and innocent eyes.


Afraid that he would go home and complain about her, she bared her teeth at him and warned fiercely, “Don't complain about me, or I’ll beat you!” She immediately ran ahead after saying that.

After running for a long distance and losing sight of “Milksop”, she stopped, turned her head and looked back, and was relieved that no one was chasing her.

It was the first time she did something so mean, so she was still a little apprehensive.


Fortunately, Milksop didn't shout, otherwise she would be scared to death.


However, Milksop was probably a pushover.

After she caught her breath, she saw Su Zhi staring at the pie in her hand.
She tore half of it and gave it to him.
Then, she ignored him and gnawed on the pie.

It smelled so good.

It smelled so good that she wanted to cry.

Probably because she ate too fast, she choked on the pie.
She hastily pounded her chest, and it took a while before she stopped choking.


She still felt hungry after eating half a small pie.

  How many days had she gone hungry…

Su Tao probably starved to death.

She panicked at the thought that she might also starve to death.


Then, she caught a glimpse of Su Zhi's pie.
He had only eaten a little bit.
She was about to say something when he stuffed the pie behind him, looking defensive.
“Sister, this is mine.”

Su Tao, “…”

She rolled her eyes at him.  She was the one who snatched the pie! If she hadn’t snatched it, he wouldn’t have gotten to eat it.

Fine, so be it.

Then, she looked down at her feet.
There was a hole in the baggy sock, and her dirty big toe was exposed.

Her toenail was black and so dirty that she couldn't bear to look at it.

This kind of life was simply unbearable.

She sighed, bent down and pulled her sock.
However, the toe peeped out again, as though it feared that no one would see it.

It seemed to remind her that she was very poor now!

After pulling the sock twice but to no avail, Su Tao simply ignored it.
She handed Su Dou over to Su Zhi and told him, “I'm going to cut the ragweed.
You watch him well, or you'll be beaten again when you go back.”

Su Zhi carried Su Dou a little unsteadily, and sat down on the ground.
However, he knew that he would get beaten, so he held Su Dou in his arms tightly.

Su Tao took a few steps forward, then retracted her steps.
She asked tentatively, “Where do we cut the ragweed?”

Sigh, she didn’t even have any memory.
That was bad news for a city dweller like her.


Su Zhi was only four years old.
He only occasionally followed the others to cut the ragweed, and he didn't know much about it.
He looked around with his dark eyes, and finally pointed at a plot of land not far away.
I saw Mom cut it over there.”

Lin Sanzhu was harvesting there indeed, but she was harvesting food for people, not pigs.

Furthermore, she was picking, not cutting!


Su Tao didn't expect her crybaby brother to have “duped” her.
She looked over and saw that those were sweet potato leaves.
She had seen them once on the internet.

I think this could indeed be fed to pigs as well.


She confirmed once more.
“This land belongs to your…
our family?”

She didn’t give it much thought after she saw Su Zhi nod seriously.
She jumped down from the ridge, and ran to the vegetable field swiftly.
She grabbed a handful with one hand and cut them swiftly.

She didn’t want to be beaten anymore.


An auntie carrying a hoe passed by.
She had already walked past, but when she saw what Su Tao was cutting, she retracted her steps and asked strangely, “Taozi, are your sweet potatoes already ripe?”

The sweet potatoes were grown underground.
Su Tao had no idea if they were ripe.
She replied while cutting the leaves, “They’re fully ripe.”

It was only July, and the sweet potatoes would only ripen in another month.
The auntie looked at Su Tao as if she was crazy, but on second thought, Su Tao wouldn’t have dared to cut them unless her family had told her to.

Otherwise, she would certainly be beaten to death!


The Su family’s sweet potatoes grew so well? No, she had to ask the Su family how they grew their sweet potatoes.

She hurried away without saying anything.

Soon, she arrived at the Su family’s house.
There was an old woman in the yard holding a basin to feed the chickens.
She smiled and said, “Auntie Su, are you feeding the chickens?”

The old woman was Su Tao's grandmother, Mrs.
She glanced at the person at the door and said in a sharp tone: “Yes, of course.
If I don't do these chores, no one will do them.
I must’ve owed those slackers in my previous life.”
