TWQQF ch 323 - Bribing The Family; Grilled By The Parents (8)

“You guys….” Cheng Xiao Xiao’s face was frowning. She finally took a deep breath and put on a smile before she asked her younger sister, “Little Lan Lan, what are you doing here?”

After she said that, she turned and stared at her two brothers. They sold her out over some swordsman choreography! Those two traitors!

Under their sister’s intense stare, the two brothers smiled and stood to one side. They didn’t want to be yelled at.

“What are you still doing here? What business do you still have at my house?”

Her animated eyes started at the overly excited man in front of her; she just wanted to get rid of him as soon as possible.

“I am not going anywhere. I was waiting for you to be back so we can be together!” Mo Xuanzun looked intensely at her. His look meaningful and his lips full of smile.

Just when Cheng Xiao Xiao was about to say something, little Lan Lan tucked at her hand. She couldn’t help but looked down at her young sister and asked tenderly, “Yes, Lan Lan, what’s the matter?”

“Big sister, mom heard that big sister has brought back our brother-in-law and sent me to come and check him out. Hehe, big sister, brother-in-law has been so nice to me. He even have Xiao He He played with me!”

Xiao He He?

Following the direction that her sister was pointing at, Cheng Xiao Xiao immediately saw the immortal crane who was standing there proudly. A surprised look appeared on her face; she didn’t expect to see a immortal crane here!

The immortal crane1, as its name suggested, was not your normal mystical beasts. It was at least a sacred or immortal beasts, otherwise it wouldn’t be warranted the title of immortal crane.

“Hey, Abacus, is it really an immortal crane? Not just a mystical crane?” asked Cheng Xiao Xiao skeptically.

Mo Xuanzun walked over in a sluggish yet elegant manner. He casted a glance at the immortal crane and replied tenderly, “Both his parents are immortal cranes, so I guess that would make it an immortal crane of sort. To really be an immortal crane, it need to evolve one more time.”


The immortal crane let out a few long cries, complaining about being the subject of their conversation.

Cheng Xiao Xiao held her sister’s little hand and walked up toward the crane. She looked the crane up and down and smiled, “It is indeed an immortal crane. So proud and so petty, just like my little Yuteng!”

“Young Mistress, how is this bird the same as me! I disagree!!” Little Yuteng jumped up and down in the dimension, protesting about being compared with the immortal crane.

“Well, you two are the same!” concluded Cheng Xiao Xiao.


Similarly, the immortal crane didn’t appreciate being compared to others and let out a few sharp, loud howls and rolled its eyes and stared at Cheng Xiao Xiao.

Having interacted with so many immortal beasts, Cheng Xiao Xiao immediately knew what the crane was trying to say. Without thinking, she reached out and drummed her knuckle on its head. She was so fast that the immortal crane did not even have enough time to dodge.


 Flustered and exasperated, the immortal crane fluttered its wings and got far away from Cheng Xiao Xiao and stared at her vigilantly. The worst part of it all was that this woman liked drumming it on its head just like its owner!

Watching it’s expression and reaction, its ungrateful master only stood and smiled on one side. He had no intention to help it out when it was being bullied!

“C’mon back. Quickly! Or I am going to have little Yuteng come and take care of you!” Cheng Xiao Xiao was very interested in the crane, she wasn’t going to get it get away from her.

Hearing little Yuteng’s name for the second time, Mo Xuanzun was full of curiosity and he asked, “Xiao Xiao, who is little Yuteng? Call her out so I can see her!”

“Why? What are you up to?” Cheng Xiao Xiao glanced over at him. Then, she rolled her eyes and said, “Okay, I can let you see little Yuteng, but you have to give me your immortal crane!”

“Give it to you?”

Mo Xuanzun frowned and his browed made a beautiful arch. He gaze fell upon her and his very defined lips turned into a graceful and carefree smile and he said, “What’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine. It is just a matter of time before I will meet little Yuteng.”


Translator’s Note:

1. Apologies, my dear readers. I didn’t know the author intended to distinguish the “immortal” crane from the run-of-the-mill “mystical” animals, so switching “mystical crane” to “immortal crane” going forward.
