TWQQF ch 232 - An Unexpected Discovery; Chasing Away The Best (1)

WOOSH!

A fierce wind, and powerful qi shot straight at her. Cheng Xiao Xiao, at the receiving end of this, felt that she couldn’t breath anymore. With the speed of a raging rapid, the old man’s claw was already above her head in the blink of an eye.

“Xiao Xiao!”

“Big Sister!”

“Elder Miss!”

Angry and fearful cries came from below them.

At this very moment, Cheng Xiao Xiao looked unusually calm, as though she hadn’t comprehend that she would die in the next second.

Try to escape?

It was too late for that.

The old man in grey, who had been studying Cheng Xiao Xiao closely since the very beginning, noticed that not only did she not seem more fearful, she even seemed to be more calm than the beginning of their encountered. He was a bit surprised by that.

That slight pause was enough for Cheng Xiao Xiao to realized that even though she couldn’t move at all, but she could, however, opened her mouth and whisper the word, “Collect!”

Along with her word, the man across from her disappeared into thin air just like that. Before he could even feel frightened.

Cheng Biyuan, who was rushing over fully planning on sacrificing himself to take the man out suddenly lost his target. He nearly fell off the head of the python. Luckily he was able to react just in time before falling off.

Zhou Jinjiang, who was a step behind him, witnessed the moment the old man in grey disappeared. He thought he was mistaken at first, but then he looked again, and the guy had surely disappewared.

Everybody below them were also shocked. The strong, powerful old man disappeared mysteriously; and under everyone’s watchful eyes no less, that was too…

Too abnormal!

Nevertheless, Cheng Xiao Xiao, who everyone thought would certainly die was still standing there unharmed. The two jade vines that she had in her hands were gone. Other than her face being somewhat please, it seemed like nothing had happened.

At this moment in time, Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t care less what the others were thinking. She looked at dad who was still recomposing himself from what happened early and she was touched. Quickly she asked him, “Dad, are you oaky?”

“Xiao Xiao, I am okay!” Cheng Biyuan shook his head, “What about you? Are you hurt?”

“Xiaxo Xiao, are you okay?” asked Zhou Jinjiang as well.

Turning to look at him, Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled and said, “Uncle Zhou, I am fine and I am glad you two are fine too.”

She sighed and then couldn’t help but looked over at her badly injured mystical beasts. The smile on her face disappeared quickly. She jumped down from the fiery lion and the other two followed suit.

All the mystical beasts had sustained different levels of injuries. Cheng Xiao Xiao was worried and wanted to begin treatment right away. She immediately said to the two men next to her, “Dad, Uncle Zhou, I need to help these mystical beasts. Please take everyone back inside the house, and not let them witness how I am going to save these mystical beasts!”

“Xiao Xiao, do you need any help?”

“Xiao Xiao, is there anything I can help with?”

Cheng Biyuan and Zhou Jinjiang looked toward the same direction and saw all the mystical beasts lying on the ground. These were all treasures; never in their dream would they expect someone so powerful to pay them a visit.

“No need. Just help me guard the surrounding and not let anyone peek at what I am doing will be sufficient!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao lightly.

“Okay!”

“No problem!”

Right after they said there, hasty footsteps approached them followed by her mother’s voice, “Xiao Xiao!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao turned around and saw her mother covered in tears, supported by her younger brother. She felt very touched, “Mom, I am okay!”


“Big sister!” Cheng Zheng Yuan bit his lower lip tightly, his eyes red. He was still traumatized by what had just happened.

    1. It's not a matter of "can" at this point. It's not like the old fellow has any choice in the matter anymore.
