TWQQF ch 94 - Expansion of The House; A Deal Was Made (7)


Cheng Biyuan cupped his hand and returned the courtesy and asked surprisingly, “You are the young lord of Green Mountain Manor? We didn’t realize that you will be visiting us, pardon us for failing to welcome you at the entrance!”

“No need to be so polite, master Cheng. Pardon me for visiting unannounced. I’ve brought with me some small gifts, nothing too fancy. I hope you will accept!”

“Oh, you didn’t have to. Young lord, c’mon in, this way please.”

“Thank you, master Cheng.”

Zhu Bo followed Cheng Biyuan into their courtyard and took a seat. Zhu Bo did not look down on the host because of the simple and bare surrounding and remained as respectful as he was. Cheng Xiao Xiao grew a bit fond of him upon seeing that.

Cheng Xiao Xiao had just learned of Green Mountain Manor from her mother just a few days ago. It was said that they were the wealthiest family in Dafeng and not one of the top families or the top nine sect. And the one sitting in front of them right now was the lord of the manor.

It would not be an exaggeration to say that they are filthily rich. Rumor had it that the past three generations of the Zhu’s were all prodigies in the business world. Their presence could be seen across all industries. Not only had they established their business empire within Dafeng, their businesses further extended into many countries of all sizes outside of Dafeng. The amount of wealth they have accrued has astonished many but nobody dare plotting against them.

Of course, the Zhu’s knew when to do what is necessary. Whenever a natural disaster hit in one of the counties, they will donate a large sum of money to help with the victims and the rebuilding of their homes. They were well respected among the commoners so normal royalties wouldn’t dare to act against them.

Naturally, the Zhu’s were born yesterday either. Rumor had it that they had under them a large army of secret security guards that watched over them and that was the reason why nobody was able to touch their wealth to this day.

Cheng Xiao Xiao was a bit surprised by his appearance. She didn’t think that Lai Yue Inn in a such small town like Daling was part of Green Mountain Manor’s business thus the honor visit of such a wealthy man.

That being said, what the Cheng’s has was definitely worth his trip!

Thinking about the items that she needed, Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but to eyed him one more time. This guy was so rich that he could be dripping money from his pores, he should have no shortage of the items that she was looking for. Perhaps it could be mutually beneficial to trade with him.

“This must be Miss Cheng?”

 A gentle voice interrupted Cheng Xiao Xiao’s crazy thoughts. Meeting his sparkling eyes, Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but felt a little startled.

This person was definitely not just any one!

They both had the same thought at the same time. Seeing that he had inquired about his daughter, Cheng Biyuan introduced her to him immediately, “Young lord, she is my oldest daughter, Cheng Xiao Xiao!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao, regaining her composure, took a few steps forward and bowed lightly, “Greetings from the peasant Cheng Xiao Xiao, young lord!”

“Greetings, it is nice to meet you!” Zhu Bo cupped his hands and returned the courtesy. It was extremely respectful of him to treat her that way given his status.

Afterall, not only was him a wealthy young lord with high status, he was also a generation older than her. His returning her courtesy meant a lot of respect for Cheng Xiao Xiao.

Cheng Biyuan was very pleased with his manners. That was his personality, if someone treats his family nice, he would treat him even nicer.

This person standing in front of them had just won over the fondness of all the Cheng’s. Cheng Biyuan said to his daughter, “Xiao Xiao, why don’t you sit and join us?”

“Miss Cheng, it will be a pleasure!”

He was certainly a well spoken individual and his mannerism was courteous but not over the top. Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled at him and sat down next to her father.

  3. I mean to raised this a bit earlier, but always preoccupied with reading....the size of the words in different paragraph was different each time..some was a bit big (i think its 12) and some was small (maybe down 10 or 11) and always need me to enlarge the entire page to read it clearly...maybe you can fix that when you get time
    Thank you for the chapter.

    1. That is odd. Other than my blurb for my Patreon, the font sizes on my screen is consistent. I'll try to remember to do one more pass on font size in blogger. Beyond that I dunno what to say. What are you using to read?
