TWQQF ch 279 - Disturbance In The Middle of The Night; Looking For Spontaneous Fun (2)

Speaking of pleasant surprises, Old Man Ying was probably the one that best know all the tricks up her sleeves. Even his old face showed signs of happiness as he waited for rewards from his young mistress.

Looking at their reactions, Cheng Xiao Xiao started to wonder – were they just all very smart old men, or that she had accidentally gave her thoughts away? Why was it that they all seemed to be able to read her mind?

“HOHOHO….” Seeing the surprised look on his daughter, Cheng Biyuan couldn’t help but started laughing lightly and said, “Xiao Xiao, you had never sat with us for so long. Naturally we started raising our hopes that something good is coming our way. Well, was it really true that something good is coming our way?"

"Alright, you guys were right!” So it was her that gave it away, Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded helplessly, “And you all get a prize for being right!”

“Oh really? We get prizes?”

Old Man Ying was so excited he almost jumped into the air. His smile was so deep that his old face resembled a chrysanthemum. The two others on the side were surprised.

Surely she said there were prizes, but was it necessary to be so excited? Was that what they meant when they said people regresses when they get old?

The happy Old Man Ying didn’t care about how others were looking at him. He mindlessly rubbed his hands together and smiled at Cheng Xiao Xiao, “Young Mistress, what kind of prize do we get?”

“Oh, so you want a prize? That’s fine, I can give you a prize, but if you can’t breakthrough advanced level martial emperor, I will have to rethink prizes in the future. What do you say?” Cheng Xiao Xiao did not produce her items right away, she intended to tease the old man some more first.

Advanced level martial emperor?

All their eyes’ beamed as they heard that term.

Old Man Ying paused for a second but recovered almost immediately. Remembering that his young mistress has the ability to raise other’s cultivation level; his heart was beating so far it was about to jump out of his mouth!

Advanced level martial emperor has been his goal for the longest time. Once he reached advanced level martial emperor, then he would have a shot at breaking through to the very infrequently heard of martial monarch.

It was just that he had been stuck at the mid level martial emperor level for nearly 30 years; even when he had drank so much mystical water from the dimension, it still felt like something was missing  and he wasn’t able to break through.

Now that he heard Cheng Xiao Xiao requesting him to go up a level to reach advanced-level martial emperor, that was like a dream come true! He was happy like a kid in a candy store, giggling in a silly way in front of every one.

Seeing him like that, Cheng Xiao Xiao had no heart to tease him any further. She produced a water bottle and a snow ginseng and handed them over to him, “I won’t be looking out for you anymore if you still can’t break though with these help!”

“Of course, of course. I am sure I can break though, Miss. I will breakthrough tonight!” He accepted the two items with both hands, even the mild temperament old man’s hands trembled uncontrollably.

“Now, off you go!”

“Yes, Miss. I shall go right away!”

Old Man Ying, holding both items in his hands, disappeared in a flash.

Old Man Ying had definitely been growing on Cheng Xiao Xiao. She had started to feel that he was a part of the family. When she turned around, she just happened to saw the envious look on Zhou Jinjiang.

Seeing him like that, Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled cheerfully, “Don’t worry, Uncle Zhou, I won’t play favoritism. Since Uncle Zhou had guessed it correctly as well, naturally you will get a prize too!”

Zhou Jinjiang was stunned by her words for a second but recovered immediate. Full of surprised, he asked, “Xiao Xiao, are you serious?”

“Of course I am serious!” Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at him full of interest, “Uncle Zhou, but don’t be happy too soon. Same rules apply, you must breakthrough tonight; otherwise, prizes going forward will be re-evaluated. Would you still like to have them?”
