TWQQF ch 201 - Moving Into The New Resident; Bending The Will of Heaven (3)

“Oh? I didn’t know it’s young Mr. Zhu’s intention to become a permanent guest at our place?” said Cheng Xiao Xiao with a complicated look.

Zhu Xiangyu chuckled without care and said, “Becoming a permanent guest wouldn’t be bad. I quite like the newly constructed courtyards. I just hope you won’t kick me out!”

“Young Mr. Zhu is so funny!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao shrugged; she didn’t believe a word he said, “Say, you invited me out, what is it that you wanted to discuss?”

“Xiao Xiao, why are you still referring to me as ‘mister’? That sounds so distant and it hurts my ears. You can call me Xiangyu. Or, since I am older than you, ‘Xiangyu ge’ or ‘Yu gege’ will also work!”

They stopped walked and Cheng Xiao Xiao looked straight at him. Their eyes met and neither one of them spoke, just stared straight at each other.

After a while, Cheng Xiao Xiao finally looked away and continued to walk into the bamboo forest as she said, “Since this is young Mr. Zhu’s request, I shall starting calling Mr. Zhu Xiangyu!”

For some odd reasons that she couldn’t quite put her fingers on, she had an unexplainable feeling toward this sole successor of Green Mountain Manor. She didn’t sense any maliciousness from him; but an odd feeling nonetheless that made her put her guards up.

She simply couldn’t accept this person wholeheartedly.

“Sure, as long as Xiao Xiao is willing, you can calling me whatever you like!” said Zhu Xiangyu with a full smile.

Upon entering the bamboo forest, the crisp and fresh smell of the bamboo filled their heart; both of them looked to be relaxed and comfortable.

“What a wonderful place; even my places doesn’t have a location with this kind of mystical qi. I am both liking this and jealous at the same time…”

Zhu Xiangyu sighed and continued, “It’s so nice to have mystical water; you can transform anything you want to!”

“If I remember correctly, hasn’t young lord yourself purchased several dozes cubic liter of mystical water? If that’s what you want, that should be do-able!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao nonchalantly as she leaned against a bamboo.

“Xiao Xiao, you must be kidding. We can’t afford that kind of luxury. You have us confused with yourself, having an unlimited supply mystical water to do with as you please. You use mystical water to water the bamboo forest; you use it to raise your farm animals; you use it as regular drinking water; you use it to keep your fish. You use it for just about anything and everything…”

He paused and shook his head at this point, “As far as I could tell, you are the only family at Dafeng who could afford this kind of luxury. Not even the royals were able to do that.”

“So what you are telling me is that there are others in other country who could afford it as well?” asked Cheng Xiao Xiao with her brows raised.

Zhu Xiangyu smiled with his lips closed; his bright eyes looked steadily at her and he said, “As far as I know, only the four top powers were able to afford this kind of luxury!”

“Oh? With your family wealth, I’d imagine you can buy your own mystical well!”

“Xiao Xiao, this is not something you can buy with money. Unless you are suggesting that you will sell us the entire mystical well?” Zhu Xiangyu pretended to be surprised.

“Oh….” Seeing him like that, Cheng Xiao Xiao played along with him and said, “If you can take the mystical well with you somehow, sure, we will sell it to you. As for this place, well, now the entire Qing’An belonged to us. We won’t dare to sell it even if we want to!”

“Ergo, this is a problem without a solution!”

Zhu Xiangyu fished out a fan and started waving it back and forth. With curiosity, he asked, “Speaking of, Xiao Xiao, I am a little curious. You want all kinds of plants and animals, and all of different species and varieties. What are they for? Are you planning on growing and raising all of them?”
