TWQQF ch 59.1 - Big Deal (3)


He wanted the attention, but he didn’t expect that his opponent wouldn’t even pay him any attention. He looked pissed off, but before he could say anything, his instructor shot him a look and he knew better and swallowed his words.

“So you are the Cheng’s maiden – Cheng Xiao Xiao!” said Mu Qingtong as he gave her a long, meaningful look.

“You knew I am, why ask?” said Cheng Xiao Xiao coldly, “So what’s with coming here with all these people?”

“Aren’t you an interesting one?” laughed Mu Qingtong as he approached her slowly while staring at her intensely. “You know what this is about, why do you ask?”

“Nonsense!” shouted Cheng Xiao Xiao blatantly, “You want to show off, go somewhere else. We don’t like strangers here!”

“Miss Cheng, the old saying had it that anyone that come to your house is a guest…”

Cheng Xiao Xiao cut him off right away, “We don’t welcome unfriendly guests, please leave!”

“You…” Now Mu Qingtong was mad. Nobody had ever talked to him like that before, especially in front of his students. But he managed to keep his temper under control, with a mild tone, he said, “Miss Cheng. We are here to ask for a favor, you don’t need to be so standoffish. Is that how you were raised?”

“You mean I should be raised to offer you fine wine and fine dining right about now?” said Cheng Xiao Xiao sarcastically, “Surely you knew about my confrontable with Ning Xunzong previously.”

“Ugh, yes!” Mu Qingtong had no idea why she brought that up, but had no intention to cover that up.

Looking even more sarcastic, Cheng Xiao Xiao said, “Well, if that’s the case, why should we welcome you? You are right. I knew why you guys are here. You want us to submissively hand over our mythical animals and the mythical well, and my family to become your servants. Should we kneel down now and greet our masters?”

“What?” A hint of annoyance flashed through Mu Qingtong’s face. Sternly he turned and looked at Ning Xunzong. Ning Xunzong was too scared to meet his gaze.

Mu Qingtong wasn’t an idiot. The few sentences from Cheng Xiao Xiao and judging by the reaction from Ning Xunzong, he could put two and two together and now the reaction from the Cheng’s made sense. Apparently, the Ning’s went too overboard previously, leading to the consequences today.

“Greetings, Miss Cheng, I am Long Yuze of the Long’s of Emperor City!” Suddenly a middle-age man wearing a brocade robe appeared out of nowhere and greeted Cheng Xiao Xiao with cupped hands.

“Greetings, Mr. Long!” Cheng Xiao Xiao bowed slightly. Of course she knew all these people came with the same purpose in mind, but since they were still amicable, she had no reason to be rude to him.

Right then, another middle-age man stood out and greeted her with cupped hands, “Miss Cheng, I am Xue Xingchen of the Xue’s of Emperor City!”

“Miss Cheng, I am Su Yiyang of the Su’s of City of Huang!” said another middle-age man.

The presence of these three surprised everyone from School of Divine Condor. These were all very powerful families. One could hear the crowd started discussing among themselves.

Mu Qingtong looked extremely displeased that others had the upper hand. He was even more mad that idiot Ning Xunzong and his two idiot friends. They discovered the mythical beasts and mythical spring, not only were they not able to secure a deal, but they had offended the Cheng’s, putting them in an awkward position.
