TWQQF ch 274 - Everybody's On Their Moves; Lots of Suspicious Activities (7)

It had been over ten thousand years since a mythical contract binder had walked on this continent, and now her…

Was she…?

Zhou Jinjiang couldn’t say for certain, but he dare suspect that the brat Cheng Xiao Xiao just might be an extremely talented mythical contract binder.

Granted, this was nothing but his own speculation. He dare not ask, nor did he dare share it with Cheng Biyuan. His intention wasn’t to share this joyous news with everyone, but to hide it as best he could!

Cheng Xiao Xiao would only be safe if nobody find out about it!

Thinking about this, Zhou Jinjiang bid Cheng Xiao Xiao farewell and left with the new servants.

Cheng Xiao Xiao, on the other hand, stared at his back and fell into deep thought!

She could sensed that something was no longer the same with Zhou Jinjiang – the way he walked to her was more respectful than normal.

This was never the case before. Zhou Jinjiang had always treated her as someone from a more junior generation, and had never spoken to her in that tone before.

As for why had prompted the change, she hadn’t figure that out just yet.

The time of the promised auction has come and the Cheng’s were getting busier and busier. Even though the maiden Cheng Xiao Xiao had repeated over and over again it was not necessary to prepare food and drinks for the guests but Zhou Jinjiang disagreed. He still had what was necessary prepared.

Inside the Cheng’s study!

Cheng Biyuan and Zhou Jinjiang sat facing each other with very solemn looks on them. Their looks were brought upon by the completeness of the guests; with the exception of the Four Top Powers, everybody else was there.

This was not a situation they had anticipated. And everyone one of them aimed to win their bid!

“This is going to be rough!” smiled Cheng Biyuan bitterly at the person in front of him.

Zhou Jinjiang smiled bitterly back at him, “Rough or not, we got to push through it. All these people are losing their minds over our goods. We must be careful in the next few days!”

“Exactly. If Willows wasn’t guarded by Xiao Xiao’s mystical beasts, it’d have been mowed down already!” Cheng Biyuan thought about those persistent cultivators and couldn’t help but shook his head.

Luckily his daughter Xiao Xiao had foresaw and prepared for that. Otherwise they’d have even more issues to deal with right now!

“Speaking of, My Lord, how do you plan on handling the issue between you and Gu Gaoyi?” Zhou Jinjiang couldn’t contain his curiosity on this issue.

Granted, this concerned the Cheng’s reputation greatly, it was only natural that he was concerned about it.

Cheng Biyuan was silent when this subject was broached; his look slightly dismal. It was quite obvious that this issue has been weighting down on him.

Zhou Jinjiang looked on quietly and the study fell silent all of a sudden.

After a long while, Cheng Biyuan shook off his dismal look and said, “Let him be, I guess. If my speculation is correct, he was here to end our verbal betrothal.”

Zhou Jinjiang nodded. Anyone with half a brain could have figured that one out. After all, it was an open secret that Cheng Xiao Xiao was not fond of Gu Junxian at all. It only made sense that his family would come and end the betrothal.

“Judging by the fact that there had been no activities on their part as of late, Gu Gaoyi will very likely show up during the auction. And mostly likely that’s when he was going to broach the subject!” Zhou Jinjiang pointed that out.”

“Most likely!”

There was no doubt on Cheng Biyuan’s mind, “It doesn’t matter to me either way, but I worry that Cheng Xiao Xiao wouldn’t let it go down peacefully, and….”

The thought of that made Cheng Biyuan’s head throb. The scale of the auction had already way exceeded their expectation, and then you throw in drama like this, how could he not feel his stomach churn.

“My Lord, truth be told, I am looking forward to Xiao Xiao teaching them a lesson!” said Zhou Jinjiang as if hinting on something else.
