TWQQF ch 252 - Fighting Among Themselves; The Gu's Are Coming (3)

Zhu Xiangyu was speechless. She was the only woman who had always bee chasing him away. Nobody else ever dare talk to him like that. Except for her, and not just once or twice. This was the second time she was sending him away just today!

Was she really not fond of him at all?

“Yes, the purpose of my trip today is to discuss with Master Cheng and Miss Cheng about the auction you will be hosting in a month!”

“Auction?”

Cheng Biyuan had almost forgotten all about it. He was Cheng Xiao Xiao was just throwing things out at the time. But it looked like everybody had taken it seriously. He would probably have to find some time to take care of this.

“Xiao Xiao, it was your proposal. How do you want to proceed?”

“However. We will just have someone build a small podium when the time comes. I will wing it when the time comes! Don’t worry, dad!” Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t seem to be troubled by this at all.

Cheng Biyuan nodded and said, “Okay, we will have that arranged. You need anything else, just let your Uncle Zhou know!”

“Okay!”

Their conversation made Zhu Xiangyu speechless. He didn’t expect the Cheng’s would be so casual about this upcoming auction. Those from the outside were about to go berserk over this!

“Miss Cheng, I am curious about the arrangement of this said auction. How many different items will be auctioned off. I wonder if you can provide me with some more information in advance?”

Seeing the anticipation in Zhu Xiangyu’s eyes, a wicked grin appeared on Cheng Xiao Xiao’s face and she said, “No, I can’t tell you just yet.”

“Why not?” Zhu Xiangyu was stunned, with his status as the representative of the Green Mountain Manor, he should be able to get some insider information!

“No reason. Because you already knew of all the items that would appear in the auction. As for whether there will be any additional items, I really have no idea. Maybe there will be, maybe there won’t!”

“This….” Zhu Xiangyu felt a bit unreconciled.

Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled and with a sideway glance said, “I’ll give you an advice. Prepare more of what we need, because no matter what we are auctioning off, we will only accept what is suitable for us. At the end of the day, if you are not sufficiently prepared and can’t get the items that you want, don’t say I didn’t give you a heads up!”

Listening to the heads up that wasn’t really a heads up, Zhu Xiangyu understood that he wouldn’t be getting any more out of her.

Ignoring Zhu Xiangyu, Cheng Xiao Xiao turned to her father who was sitting in the head of household position and said to him, “Dad, we will be added a deacon elder to our household. From now on, I won’t be anticipating too much craziness in the future!”

“Deacon elder?” Cheng Biyuan was stunned, “What deacon elder, Xiao Xiao? And where is this deacon elder?”

Other than him, everybody else also had a confused look on them. It didn’t seem like there had been a lot of outsiders around the house, when did this deacon elder get here?

Watching everybody’s reaction, Cheng Xiao Xiao had a secretive smile on her face. She shouted toward the beam up above and said, “Why don’t you c’mon down, Elder Ying?”

Old man Ying, receiving his order, floated down from above!

When they saw clearly who it was, Cheng Biyuan and Zhou Jinjiang looked ghastly. They jumped up from their seats and looked straight at him with deadly stare.

They would recognize this man from miles away. This person was the mysterious old man who attacked their family eight nights ago!

“Old scoundrel! It’s you!” Cheng Zheng Yuan recognized him by now. He ran in front of him and shouted at him angrily, “How dare you come to our house again!”
