TWQQF ch 253 - Fighting Among Themselves; The Gu's Are Coming (4)

Old man Ying didn’t even know to respond to the little guy.

He didn’t come to rob or kill this time, okay? Geez, must he be so mean to a  grandpa?

Ever since his mindset had been readjusted, he was also a lot less violent and more friendly. But, of course, Cheng Xiao Xiao was the only one who knew about the changes, not the others present.

Cheng Biyuan still looked ghastly, but he noticed that the old man didn’t make any movements, nor was he exuding any killer. He calmed down quickly and, at the same time, remember his daughter’s words. Did she….

His eyes contracted suddenly and he couldn’t help but to look over at his daughter. At the same time, Zhou Jinjiang who had thought of the same thing also turned and look at Cheng Xiao Xiao.

If Cheng Biyuan’s reaction had given Zhu Xiangyu any suspicion; then Cheng Zheng Yuan’s words definitely made him think of something. He was stunned all over again.

Hearing her brother’s words, Cheng Xiao Xiao teased and said, “Zheng Yuan, you better be careful. Elder Ying and squish you into minced meat with just one of his little fingers!”

“Miss, please don’t say that. I think young master is already mad enough at me!” said Old man Ying with a bitter smile.

Just that one line from him stunned everyone there immediately. All of their eyes widened and they all looked incredulous.

“What? He is an elder of our house?” asked the stupefied Cheng Zheng Yuan.

Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded. Looking at her father and the rest who were still stoned, she couldn’t help but covered up her mouth and smiled, “Yes, Elder Ying will be our Deacon Elder starting today. Not only will he help us guard our home; he will also help dad and Uncle Zhou with other matters concerning the family!”

“I am Ying Ziliang. Greetings, Master, Madam!” Old man Ying cupped his hand and greeted Cheng Biyuan. His tone and mannerism very respectful and didn’t seem fake at all.

Cheng Biyuan let out a deep, long breath and suppressed his roiling emotions. He nodded at him and said, “Greetings, Elder Ying. Treat this as your own home from now on!”

“Exactly, we will let bygone be bygone and no need to bring any of those up every again. We will help each other out going forward!” Smiling, Cheng Xiao Xiao chimed in.

Zhu Xiangyu really wanted to smack himself upside his own head. He really wanted to know if he was dreaming!

If he was right about it, the martial emperor who had attacked the Cheng’s eight nights ago had just became the Cheng’s deacon elder. Was this some sort of a joke?

He couldn’t lift his eyes off of this martial emperor. He was dying to know why he’d decide to stay at the Cheng’s. Even if you pooled every single person at the Cheng’s, they were still no match for a martial emperor.

In other words, this martial emperor could come and go as he pleased. There were no reason at all for him to stay and serve the Cheng’s.

Zhu Xiangyu examined him up and down with his eyes and couldn’t discover anything out of place with the martial emperor. There were no signs that he was staying against his will. From his look and eyes, he seemed to be staying out of his own will.

“Hey, kid, didn’t your mother teach you that it’s rude to stare at someone like that?”

Old man Ying was respectful to the Cheng’s, but that didn’t mean he would be respectful to everyone. He was still that prideful martial emperor. He would still annihilate anyone who was rude to him.

“Ugh.” Under the sharp stare of Old Man Ying, he retracted his look with slight embarrassment. Cupping his hands, he said, “Junior is Zhu Xiangyu of the Green Mountain Manor. Greetings, Senior!”

“Hrm, don’t bother dropping names in front of me. I couldn’t care less about those!” Old Man Ying was still a prideful man!


Zhu Xiangyu felt very awkward in front of the hard-to-please old man. Alas, what could he do about that?
