TWQQF ch 39.2 - More Visitors

“Okay, let’s give that a try. If we can really convert the bamboo forest into a vast sea of spiritual bamboo, that will greatly assist with the cultivation of Zheng Yuan and the lot and dad would be happy too!”

“Young master, I don’t think you’d stop at just converting the bamboo forest. From now on, you are going to start changing everything surrounding you. This entire surrounding area will become sacred land for cultivation.”


“That won’t be such a bad thing!” laughed Cheng Xiao Xiao happily.

“Of course it will be a good thing, young master. Yuteng has faith in you!”

“Yuteng, all said and done, you are the one who has to do all the work!”

“Anything to make my young master happy!”

Chitchatting and talking about their future wishful thinking, Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t realize that a second group of visitors had arrived in the outside world!

“Young master, someone’s here!” Little Yuteng seemed to have sensed something and warned her.

Cheng Xiao Xiao, who was leaning against the crystal tree and meditating with her eyes closed, opened her eyes and she could hear the message from the dogs in her head. Immediately, she said, “Let me go check it out.”

Flashing out of the dimension, Cheng Xiao Xiao walked outside of the house. Her parents had already met up with the visitors and they appeared at the door before she could walk out of the courtyard!

She didn’t recognize most of the visitors, except one that she had already met a couple of times. She put on her normal look after a short pause. If people from the Ning’s could find there way here, naturally so could Innkeeper Zhu, who was right now standing in front of her.

“Have a seat, everyone. Pardon the mess!” Cheng Biyuan said the humble words, but there’s no inferiority detected in his tone.

Deacon Bai didn’t show much in terms of emotions. Deacon Lin had a cold look as though he was there to collect hundreds of thousands of dollars that was owed to him.

Innkeeper Zhu, as usual, was full of smiles. Politely he cupped his hands and said, “Please, Mr. Cheng, pardon our unannounced visit!”

“Have a seat!” said Cheng Biyuan politely, he had already found out the identities of the visitors.

The lot sat down on the chairs and Mrs. Cheng served them tea. In the short while there, Innkeeper Zhu cupped his hands and greeted the person standing in front of the doorway, “Hi, Miss Cheng, long time no see!”

His words got the attention of the other two that were with him, they both looked at the fair maiden in front of them right away. The two deacons seemed surprised by the sight of her.

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t pay them much attention but just nodded at Innkeeper Zhu. She didn’t say a word.

Cheng Biyuan, sitting on the other side caught the entire exchange. He asked indifferently, “So Innkeeper Zhu and the two deacons, what is the purpose of your visit today?”

“Ugh, Mr. Cheng, allow me to explain!”  Innkeeper Zhu first shot a glance at the two deacons. Seeing that they had no reaction, he continued, “I have purchased produces and farm animals from Mrs. Cheng and Miss Cheng previously and had a verbal agreement that we will purchase all your goods in the future. What do you think about that?”

“Oh….” Said Cheng Biyuan casually, but was non-committal.

Mrs. Cheng, who was pouring tea at the moment couldn’t help but took a look at him. After filling up the tea for everyone, she stood to one side silently.

Innkeeper Zhu’s look was a bit stiff. Deacon Lin, standing next to him, looked disgruntled but did not verbalize it; whereas Deacon Bai was observing every Cheng’s reaction carefully.

Nobody said a word and awkwardness filled the air.

Deacon Bai smiled finally and said directly to Cheng Biyuan, “Mr. Cheng, we are willing to purchase your goods and farm animals at high cost!”
