TWQQF ch 373 - Saw Through; Finishing Up With Constructions (8)

At the same time, Cheng Xiao Xiao, holding a small shovel in her hand, was busy bossing someone around doing physical labor for her.

“Xiao Xiao, I can plant the cherry trees myself. Why don’t you go take a break somewhere else?” said Mo Xuanzun as he was digging a big hole.

“Work harder, why you have so much to say?” Cheng Xiao Xiao, who was shoveling soil into a hole with a sapling, said without even turning around.

Cheng Xiao Xiao’s original plan was to have a few people come and help out. She didn’t expect the tool to object to that adamantly and insisted on planting the entire cherry forest for her.

He said, this was going to be her cherry forest. Whenever they come to enjoy the cherry blossom, they’d always come here holding hands. He didn’t want others to ruin this for him.

Having heard that, Cheng Xiao Xiao was naturally very moved by his thoughts and had a lot of hopes for this place. Nonetheless, many ideas in life was easy when you think about it, but much harder when actually carrying it out!

Case in point is this man in front of him who’d spent most of his life cultivating and studying. Sure, he could dig holes with a spade alright, but his speed was even slower than that of a turtle. If he was to do this all on his own, she wasn’t even sure if this cherry forest would be done a year from now!

So, as Cheng Xiao Xiao also not wanting others to ruin the sweet memories of their place, the always been viewed as high and mighty Maiden Cheng and her guye were here day in and day out digging holes and planting trees.

None of the servants understood why they insisted on doing that themselves. Did they enjoy torturing themselves?

A few uncles from Willows offered to help out of the kindness of their heart, but they were all sent away by guye with money.

So, their actions became even more of a mystery to everyone.

“Aiya, Xiao Xiao, wait a minute!” shouted Mo Xuanzun as he tossed away the shovel in his hand.

Cheng Xiao Xiao, who had just finished planting a sapling, stood up, wiped away the sweats on her forehead and asked, baffled, “What seems to be the matter?”

“Xiao Xiao, let’s not rush to plant the trees. Let me think of a tactical arrangement first!” said Mo Xuanzun with a smile, his eyes deep and sparkling.

“A tactical arrangement?”

Naturally, Cheng Xiao Xiao was familiar with the term, many a times, even. She just didn’t know it very well, so she asked casually, “Okay, what kind of an arrangement do you want to do? This will be a playground for everyone in the future. You sure having an arrangement will be a good idea?”

“Yes! For sure!”

Mo Xuanzun held her hand and walked out with her. Appearing in front of them were the entire layout of the Cheng’s. Squinting, Mo Xuanzun said, “Xiao Xiao, tactical arrangement is a good thing. It’s what most clans and sects use to keep out enemies. After all, when powerful enemies attack, they can do a lot of damages. If we have a tactical arrangement that we can activate, we can greatly minimize our own loss and protect our loved ones.

“You should know that, no matter how strong one is, they are still limited to how many they can protect. So, in the event that the enemies come in numbers, we will have to rely on a tactical arrangement to protect more of our own. Every single sects and clans do that, including the Top 9 Clans and Top 4 Powers.”

“I understand!” Cheng Xiao Xiao casted him a sideway glance, raised her brows and said, “Since you are going to become the Cheng’s guye, I am trusting you with this. Surely, you will be able to handle this!”

“Well, this….”

Smiling, Mo Xuanzun looked at her and said, “Xiao Xiao, those of us at the Temple of Divine Plans are well versed in setting up tactical arrangements and I truly would like to do a large scale one here, but I feel that my memories have been slipping a little lately. I’m afraid I will need some help!”
