TWQQF ch 268 - Everybody's On Their Moves; Lots of Suspicious Activities (1)

“Well, Xiao Xiao, how are you going to handle them?”

Seeing how she was remaining silent, Zhou Jinjiang got a little curious. He had heard about what had happened when Gu Junxian was here last; Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t just embarrassed him a little bit, she embarrassed him royally.

Cheng Xiao Xiao lifted her chin and answered with a question, “I would like to know how Uncle Zhou thinks I should handle him. Do share, I just might listen to your advice.”

“I think…..” Zhou Jinjiang nodded and pretended to be pondering over the issue, “Xiao Xiao should just consent to whatever requests that Gu Junxian will bring up.”

Cheng Xiao Xiao snickered and said, “Alright, Uncle Zhou, since when have you turned into such a gossiper? I think you have way too much free time on hand. If you have so much free time, I can surely help find some tasks to occupy your time!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao laughed and shook her head, it wasn’t everyday when you see someone of an older generation being such a gossiper.

“Who said I have so much free time!” Zhou Jinjiang blushed and his eyes widened, “I am just worry about you, brat. How dare you call me a gossiper? You need to learn to respect your elders!”

Zhou Jinjiang turned and walked away after he had pulled rank.

“HO HO HO….” Chuckled Cheng Xiao Xiao and immediately put the issue behind her. As far as she was concerned, this wasn’t something that she needed to worry about.

The unexpected had happened, the second day came and gone, and so did the third. Yet Gu Gaoyi and his family who were supposed to arrive still haven’t showed up.

Words had it that they have been staying in Daling.

After hearing the news, Cheng Biyuan seemed upset and unhappy.

Seeing that, Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but to sigh to herself. Just because her father valued their friendship, it didn’t mean the feeling was mutual. Granted, as far as she was concerned, she was quite happy that the Gu’s wasn’t heading to her house.

That’s definitely less hassle to her.

On the other hand, the Gu’s in town had already sent their men out and somewhere between threatening and luring with large sum of money, they had purchased a 2-layered shiheyuan.

They were now staying comfortably in town. The real reason that they have not yet headed to the Cheng’s, however, surrounded a man in black. The entire family had been fawning over him, like their livelihood depended on him.

They ran into this man in black on their way to Daling. He was trying to take over the Gu’s luxurious horse-drawn carriage for its comfort. Encountering this martial king, the Gu’s were no match of his having only martial spiritualists in their procession.

Finally, they had no choice but to give up their luxurious horse-drawn carriage and kowtow to him servilely. When they found out the man in black was a disciple of Pillar’s Clan of Magical Sword, they were so excited they were short of getting down on their knees and licking his toes.

Especially Gu Junxian. Oh what he wouldn’t do If he could become this man’s disciple, and become a part of the renowned Pillar’s Clan of Magical Sword?

The young man, however, had no intention of taking him as his disciple. He had, however, subtly implied that he would not mind taking him in as a servant.

That was a difficult decision for the usually arrogant Gu Junxian. Certainly he really desired to join the Pillar’s Clan of Magical Sword, but he didn’t want to be anyone’s servant either. So he was still holding out hope that the man would take him as his disciple.

The man in black couldn’t careless what Gu Junxian has in mind. Perhaps Gu Junxian was talented, it’d be okay to have him as a servant. As for him being a disciple, giving his current circumstances….

When he thought about this, his look was even colder than before, as though he looked down on Gu Junxian’s talent…

The more nonchalant he was, the more the Gu’s felt that he was of high standing and the more they wanted to be associated with him in some ways. They have almost forgotten their original purpose of visiting the town of Daling.
