TWQQF ch 166 - Shameless Family; Taking a Trip Alone (19)

“Thank you, Mistress,” replied Zhu Qing emotionally, the way he looked at her was even more gentle than before.

After saying that to Zhu Qing, Cheng Xiao Xiao then turned and looked at Lu’er and said, “Lu Zhu, it’s not that I am treating you two differently, but that family of yours you can forget them. It’s probably better if you don’t go back to visit your mom and dad. I know this might sound cruel, but it was obvious that that dad of yours was no nice guy, he wasn’t worth it. I hope you can comprehend what I am saying.”

Mainly she didn’t want her to continue be tormented by her family. Afterall, she still have feelings for them, and she was a nice kid. If she was soft with them, troubles would never end.

“Lu Zhu understood,” replied Lu Zhu softly, with her head lowered. Merely the mentioning of her father made her shuddered.

She was well aware of her status when her father handed over the deed to her mistress. From that point forward, mistress would be her family; and the one that sold her, had nothing more to do with her.

Seeing that they understood her words, Cheng Xiao Xiao took them toward the marketplace.

Lu Zhu and Zhu Qing looked at Cheng Xiao Xiao, baffled. Their eyes full of confusion, where was mistress taking them?

The two looked at Cheng Xiao Xiao dumbfounded, neither one of the them said anything, nor did they look around, just mindlessly followed Cheng Xiao Xiao.

When she walked passed a clothing store, Cheng Xiao Xiao beamed and brought the two inside with her.

“Miss, what kind of clothing are you looking for?” asked the shopkeeper with a smile as he walked up to them.

Cheng Xiao Xiao ignored his fawning manner and found a spot to sit down before she slowly said, “Shopkeeper, find the two of them some suitable clothing, and get them cleaned up while you are at it,” said Cheng Xiao Xiao nonchalantly as she sat there comfortably.

The shopkeeper was a bit hesitant; but once he saw the taals that Cheng Xiao Xiao had toying in her hand, he agreed with a smile.

Ushered both Lu Zhu and Zhu Qing into the back of the store, the shopkeeper smiled like a flower.

Of course he was happy where there was business at the store.

Cheng Xiao Xiao enjoyed the tea on the table as she waited for Lu Zhu and Zhu Qing.

When the storekeeper reappeared with the two of them, even Cheng Xiao Xiao’s eyes widened. That’s why the saying clothes make the man. Cheng Xiao Xiao was pleasantly surprised when she saw the two all dressed up.

Lu Zhu wasn’t exactly drop dead gorgeous, but she was quite fair, and Zhu Qing as well. The two of them were pleasing to the eyes.

“Not bad, not bad,” looking at the two walking out, Cheng Xiao Xiao continued to nod.

“Miss, what do you think?” laughed the shopkeeper. He laughed so much that his face looked like a chrysanthemum. Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but shuddered from that look.

She couldn’t quite handle his pace.

“Mmmm, I am quite pleased,” said Cheng Xiao Xiao. She then paid and took them for some food before started heading back.

Lu Zhu looked at the new clothes that she had on, her eyes beaming. She didn’t seem to feel the pain anymore and skipped along the way, like she wanted to show off her new clothes to anyone who cared to look.

Ever since she was a kid, she had never wore anything as pretty and bright as this. When she was a child, she had only worn ragged, old clothes that others threw away. Finally she has clothes of her own, belonged only to her.

  1. He laughed so much that his face looked like a chrysanthemum. Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but shuddered from that look.

    I wonder, did you not add a number and a footnote corresponding to said number on purpose? Because I can guarantee that some people probably wouldn't understand that the chrysanthemum-like opened mouth looks like a hole for doing number 2.
