TWQQF ch 389 - Betrothal; Price to Pay (4)

Troubled, Cheng Xiao Xiao could say nothing except, “Shi mu, let me think about this some more, please? Give me some time to make a decision. Then, no matter what my decision is, I will give you an answer.”

“Alright, Xiao Xiao. No matter what your decision is, we will be supportive. Don’t worry, as long as you are safe!” said Rong Jingshi tenderly.

“Thank you, shi mu.”

“Silly child. You are going to become my daughter-in-law and a precious daughter of mine. We are family, no need to thank me, okay?”

Rong Jingshi padded her gently on her hand and said, “Xiao Xiao, your master and I might be curious, but we wouldn’t pressure you to do anything against your will. After all, we are not even 100-year-old and have at least 300 more years to live. Unlikely the two old monsters outside, they only have a few dozens of years left. So please forgive them for being persistent about finding out the truth.”

“I understand, shi mu.”

How could she not. She had already met up with the dean, Grandmaster Wudao, and Nun Saochen. They have all expressed the same thoughts; they merely had no excuses to stay at the Cheng’s extensively.

The two old monsters, on the other hand, didn’t care about anything else. They walked around like the Cheng’s was their own house and had no shame about just staying there. They’d ask Cheng Xiao Xiao about her secret every chance they got.

After talking to her shi mu, Cheng Xiao Xiao returned to her dimension. Looking at the crystal-fruit tree that has yet to ripen, Cheng Xiao Xiao’s brows furrowed into a straight line.

“Young Mistress, I don’t think you will be able to keep the dimension a secret for much longer. Even if we could dodge it this time, there will be a next. Just look at the two old monsters, obviously they intend to find out about your secret or die trying. It’d not be easy to get rid of them.”

Little Yuteng sat on the tree, in a carefree manner.

Cheng Xiao Xiao picked her up and flicked her on her forehead with her finger, “I know you will be able to figure something out.”

“Ouch!” said little Yuteng as she rubbed her forehead. She pouted her little lips and said, “Youg Mistress, why did you flick me again?”

Little Yuteng had a firm grasp on everyone. With her current ability, she could even handle the old monsters outside or Old Man Ying with room to spare. The only one she was helpless in front of was her young mistress.

Whenever Cheng Xiao Xiao wanted to teach her a lesson, little Yuteng would not be able to avoid it.

Cheng Xiao Xiao ignored her compliant, leaned against the crystal-fruit tree, closed her eyes and said, “Now that we can form different types of sacred contracts, it’s not a big deal to let them all inside. My worry is that there are so many of them; I am not sure what kind of problems that would cause.”

“You are right, Young Mistress. They probably don’t have any malicious intent. It’s more of a concern that as more and more people find out, some of them will have malicious intents. More importantly, we have so many precious items in our dimension, I am not sure everybody will be able to restrain themselves.”

“……”

Cheng Xiao Xiao felt silent and did not comment any further. She had been considering about this whole issue for a while now. There were so many possibilities that needed to be factored into the consideration, which was why she had been stalling the two old men and still hasn’t given them a straightforward answer.

But, was it really possible to continue to ignore this problem?

No, there needed to be a solution. Question was: what should this solution be?

After a long while, Cheng Xiao Xiao suddenly opened her eyes and a bright beam illuminated from them. It was a beam of wisdom. Slowly, a smile appeared on Cheng Xiao Xiao and her eyelashes shuddered. She asked gently, little Yuteng, if our dimension continued to level up, say when it reached level 80, or even 100, I trust that our control over it will also increase by several folds?
