TWQQF ch 229 - Plotted Against By The Relatives; An Attack At Midnight (14)

Seeing that the smile brightened more and more on her mother’s face as days pass by, even Cheng Xiao Xiao must admit that Luo Yujie was no doubt very good with her words. Her mother is too happy to worry about anything now.

“Cousin Xiao Xiao….”

It was the annoying voice of Tian Jiang, the one that felt the entire world was beneath him was now looking at her with tenderness, as though he was looking at a girl that he was fond of.

Resplendent Apothecary ch 43 - Those Who Were Looking For Their Sisters (3)

Gu Qiao had his own secret and dare not go to the officials. He talked his wife out of it, the two looked at each other, resorted to accepted that it was just bad luck.

Inside the only inn in this nameless town, the two very elegantly dressed young men were dining inside when they heard this very desolate cries, “Mei mei! Where are you, mei mei?

“Second brother, it seemed we are not the only ones looking for our sister,” sighed Chu Mubai, as he looked at the frantic kid running up and down the streets from the window.

Shaking her head lightly, Cheng Xiao Xiao coldly smiled and said, “We won’t be able to kick them out for a while. Let’s just ignore them for now; if we catch them red-handed, we will let them leave on their own!”

“Okay, I’ll follow your lead, big sister!” nodded Cheng Zheng Yuan. He didn’t like dealing with people like that. Right now the most important thing to him was focusing on his cultivation and breakthrough sooner rather than later.

At this time, gentle footsteps came toward them and a small body appeared. It was Cheng Zheng Yuan’s personal houseboy Qing Zhu. He cupped his hands and said, “Good morning, Mistress and Young Master!”

“I don’t care!”

Now Luo Yujie had let it all go. She ignored her husband and turned her attention to her older son. Smiling, she said to him, “Jiang’er ah, your cousin Xiao Xiao wasn’t half bad. She looks like her mother, a flirt by nature. Just be a little nicer to her; once you are with her, it’ll be so easy to take the Cheng’s possession!”

“Mom, I don’t think Xiao Xiao is older brother’s type. Why don’t you give her to me? I promise I will be nice to her!” Greed sparkled out of Tian Feng’s squinted eyes.

The kids of the Tian’s, the boys were arrogant and full of themselves, and the girls felt inferior about themselves. Any way you look at it, they were an odd combination.

“Greetings from Xiao Xiao, cousins!” Cheng Xiao Xiao greeting them indifferently.

“Hmmm, cousin Xiao Xiao!”

“Cousin Xiao Xiao, good to meet you. You are not half bad!”

The two brothers have very different reactions toward her. One was arrogant and have no respect, the other was just rude. Just from the first impression alone, Cheng Xiao Xiao had already put them on her black list.

Resplendent Apothecary ch 42 - Those Who Were Looking For Their Sisters (2)

“Gu Ming! You get back here now!” Flustered and exasperated, Gu Qiao was about to run after him before Mrs. Gu stopped him.

“Oh, stop that already. Never mine if he can even find that trafficker; even if he can, he has no money on him, he won’t be able to get her back. Just you wait. He will come back by himself when he is tired.” Mrs. Gu carefully put the money away and, with her man in toll, when inside the only cake and snack shop in town and purchased half jin of pastries.

She had promised her youngest son cake before they left. If they didn’t go home with cakes, he’d for sure throw a big fit! Thinking of her youngest son, her face was full of motherly love.

“Yeah, I wonder who she got that stubbornness from?”

The two didn’t lower their volume when they talked about her, even though Cheng Xiao Xiao had already left the living room, she still heard the entire conversation. But the conversation didn’t bother her at all.

She told Yesu, who had been following her, to grab her other. Her big aunt….

Thinking about that term, Cheng Xiao Xiao’s look was a bit odd. “Big aunt” was not a good term1, and she was afraid this big aunt who was coming to visit wasn’t any good character either.

As far as they are concerned, just being able to work at the Cheng’s were good enough. After all, they were gainfully employed at the Cheng’s.

While they were chitchatting, Liu Danhuang came rushing over. Cupping his hand at Cheng Biyuan, he said, “Master, Instructor, shi mei, a group of people had just arrived. They said they were here to visit Master and shi mu.

“To visit us? Did you ask them who they are?” Lately there had been lots of visitors like that, so none of them were particularly surprised!

Resplendent Apothecary ch 41 - Those Who Were Looking For Their Sisters (1)

Now that she had finally gotten rid of the girl and gained two taels, Mrs. Gu was in a very good mood. Smiling, she said to her man, “Husband, we didn’t waste all our time on that girl. She was somewhat useful after all! This two taels are enough for Da Zhuang to get a wife!”

“Hey! You are going to use the money from my daughter to get your son a wife! You wish!” Gu Qiao tried to take the money from her.

Mrs. Gu dodged from him moving unusually agilely for her body size. Seeing that her man was upset, she quickly added, “What do you mean your son / my son? Why does it matter? When Da Zhuang is all grown up and find himself a wife, of course they will take care of you too! Besides, Gu Ming is almost 12, he will be looking for a wife too in just a couple of years. Who do you think will be the one doing all the run arounds for him?”

Without thinking, the old man reached and grabbed the young man out of the room and headed outside of the town at lightning speed.

BANG!

The young man who was tossed onto the ground landed on his back with his limbs flung upward. He stared at the old man with fear.

They are now at a remote area, under the dim moonlight, he could clearly see the coldness in the eyes of the old man in grey. He looked like a hungry wolf that could eat him alive.
