TWQQF ch 112 - Lots of Drama; Beautiful Scholar (5)

The other two only just now noticing the fiery lion after they heard his voice. Their eyes bulged out and they were all shocked beyond words.

They have seen fiery lion before, but have never seen one that was a mount of a beast tamer. But from what they could tell, they were certain that this fiery lion was her mount.

Cheng Xiao Xiao did not react to their dumbfounded looks. Looking at them, she said softly, “Fellow deacon elders, I have an idea of the purpose of your trip. I am sorry to inform you that the mystical animals that you came for had already been sold yesterday. I apologize.”


The three deacon elders have regained their composure. Hearing Cheng Xiao Xiao’s words, Elder Lin smiled, “You must be Miss Cheng Xiao Xiao of the Cheng’s. We are aware of the situation you are talking about. The mystical animals might be sold out, but certainly the mystical spring isn’t. May we purchase some mystical spring water from the Cheng’s?”

“That’s right, Miss Cheng. We would like to purchase mystical spring water from the Cheng’s as well. Would that be alright with Miss Cheng?” asked Elder Du full of smile.

Elder Quan was even more courteous than the other two, “Miss Cheng, I am the deacon of Huashan Sect. I represent Huashan Sect to purchase mystical animals and mystical spring water from the Cheng’s. I hope Miss Cheng will consider our offer!”

All three of them were after the same thing. Cheng Xiao Xiao had long been expecting this scenario so she was not surprise and handing this in stride, “The three elders are so courteous. I understand your asks, but currently we are under construction to expand our family house. We are temporarily pausing any sales activities. After sometime, we will make these purchases available to the public. Can I ask you to return then?”

“Well, this….”

The three looked at each other. They didn’t expect such a respond. This was to say that their trip was a complete waste and they felt unreconciled.

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t pay attention to their thoughts. There was now a jade vine in her hand that appeared out of nowhere. Pointing at the foothill of Mount Wanan and the expansion construction, she continued, “Please take a look, with all these going on, you can see why we have to pause our sales for the time being.”

“…..” Looking at the direction that she pointed at, they could see all the construction activities at the foothill, they could tell the work was in full swing and they were speechless.

Sure enough, the Cheng’s wouldn’t have the time of day to take care of those who were here to make purchases. If they want to buy anything from them, they will have to wait till the construction has been completed and those from the Cheng’s to free up.

But how could they return empty-handed after coming all the way to Willow?

As though she could read their mind, a quick thought and three leather water bottles appeared in her hand and she tossed them toward the three at the bottom of the hilltop.

The three water bottles flew at them at lightning speed and the riders on the horseback simultaneously reached up for them. Holding the water bottles, they looked at Cheng Xiao Xiao with questions in their eyes.

Meeting with their inquisitive looks, Cheng Xiao Xiao said, “There three water bottles are gift for the three seniors. I hope that when the three seniors departed from Willow, you can help us spread the message that the Cheng’s has temporarily halted all sales activities. We are planning to resume these activities in three months and would appreciate it if everyone could resist from disturbing Willow for the time being!

“Willow has always been a quiet village, their villagers simple and kind. I do not wish these innocent people to be harmed by others. Anyone continues to try and intrude will be responsible for their own consequences. Please help us relay this message!” After she was done, she bid them farewell with cupped hands.
