TWQQF ch 276 - Everybody's On Their Moves; Lots of Suspicious Activities (9)

“Oh, the house master is beginner level martial spiritualist, if he wanted to breakthrough to martial king directly, he will need a 5,000-year one. Of course, the snow ginseng by itself won’t be enough. He will need other items as well on top of that. As for Manager Zhou, his case is must simpler. He was stuck at the bottleneck, using a 5,000-year old ginseng will push him through immediately!”

“Great. Get those for me. I’ll have my dad and Uncle Zhou bring up their cultivation level before the auction!”

“No problem!” replied little Yuteng agreeably. Then she asked again, “Young Mistress, what about Old Man Ying? He is now mid-level martial emperor. If he can breakthrough to martial monarch, that will pose even more of a presence in front of everyone attending!”

“Him? Well, I guess he had been behaving quite well and loyal the last few days. We could definitely use more people to help guard. Why not? Let’s throw him in the bunch. Prepare his share as well!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao thought about it for a second. No matter way, she needed to take good care of Old Man Ying, their old family member. She didn’t want him to be disappointed.

“It’s about time for Zheng Yuan to level up as well!”

“He will be fine too!”

Shortly thereafter, Cheng Xiao Xiao flashed out of the dimension with all the items!

The next day!

Cheng Xiao Xiao met with her father, Manager Zhou Jinjiang, and Old Man Ying. It was just the four of them, along, in the room.

“Dad, what kind of a secret meeting are we having?” teased Cheng Xiao Xiao to lighten up the mood.

Cheng Biyuan said helplessly, “Oh, you brat, you are not a child anymore. How come you are getting less and less mature, joking about everything!”

“Dad, you are more and more like mom,” said Cheng Xiao Xiao as she covered her mouth with her hand. Her dad had became more and more lecture-y.

“Enough of that. Okay, the sale is starting tomorrow. Xiao Xiao, why don’t you share with us how much have you prepared so we can have an idea?”

“Dad, Uncle Zhou, Old Man Ying, in your opinion, how much should we prepare?” answered Cheng Xiao Xiao with another question.

What did she mean by that?

With the exception of Old Man Ying, Cheng Biyuan and Zhou Jinjiang had no idea what she meant by that.

“Miss, we have a dozen or so power players in the mix. If everybody were to get what they want, Miss will have to empty out her entire warehouse. Otherwise, not everyone will leave satisfied,” smiled Old Man Ying.

“Not going to happen!” Cheng Xiao Xiao rejected that idea right away!

Zhou Jinjiang asked, “Xiao Xiao, you mean….”

Cheng Biyuan thought about it for a bit and asked directly, “Xiao Xiao, why don’t you tell us what you have in mind or your suggestion. We have no idea what you have on hand or how much of them you have. You are the only one who knows.”

“My question was, if we were to satisfy 60% of every one attending, how much inventory will we need?”

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t plan on satisfying every single person. They would only be able to keep matters under control, not to make sure everybody was happy. Otherwise, all these valuable items will be like cabbages. That wouldn’t be a good thing and never mind getting more mystical stones.

After hearing her words, all three of them remained silent and started coming up with numbers in their minds.

Cheng Xiao Xiao had an idea of the amount of items that she has in her warehouse. She trusted that she has enough to support this upcoming auction.

“I think, 120 m3 of mystical water, so 2 m3 for each of the power players. 1,200 of mystical animals in total, so average of 60 or so per party. 120,000 or so dan of food, that’d be about 20,000 dan per party. As for produces, somewhere along the same line, around 120,000 or so, I think that ought to do it.”
