TWQQF ch 316 - Bribing The Family; Grilled By The Parents (1)

After the smack was a bone-chilling voice, “Who does this dog belong to?”

“Did you just hit me?!” He could finally speak again but the slap drew fresh blood at the corner of his mouth again. He was so angry that he could skin and swallow the two in front of him alive!

Right then, Mo Xuanzun stopped smiling and his aura changed three hundred sixty degrees. The sense of being superior than the entire world exuded from him naturally. Between his eyes were superiority and icy arrogance. At this very moment, everybody presence felt a pressure coming at them, including Old Man Ying.

Cheng Xiao Xiao, standing right next to him, was genuinely surprised. She glanced at him. She never thought he still have this side of him. Perhaps he did deserve to have the nickname genius mathematician!

“Hehe, guye1. This little scoundrel was the eldest son of the Gu’s from city of Yin. He claimed that he was our Miss’s fiance and came to call off the betrothal!” smiled Old Man Ying as he went and stood next to Mo Xuanzun.

Hearing that, Cheng Xiao Xiao’s fair cheek blushed. Staring at him with her almond eyes, she said, “Old Man Ying, do you want me to mute you?”

Contrarily to Cheng Xiao Xiao’s annoyance from embarrassment, Mo Xuanzun was very fond of Old Man Ying. Or, one should say that he was ecstatic from it!

“You are quite good!” And this was the first time he looked direct at the old man. Sizing him up quickly, he was a bit surprised. It was no small feat to broke through to martial monarch.

But he didn’t comment on that. He turned to the man on his other side and asked respectfully, “Father-in-law, is that true?”

“Ugh…” Cheng Biyuan wasn’t sure how to react to him addressing him as his father-in-law left and right. He certainly did want to offend someone of his prestigious background. He had no choice but to pretend that he didn’t hear it. Nodding, he said, “Not exactly. They had rejected the betrothal years ago. They were merely here to be rude and cause trouble today! 

Guye, they were going to use the backing of Pillar’s Clan of Magical Swords to force Miss to get down on her knees and bow to young master Gu!” continued Old Man Ying!

“Pillar’s Clan of Magical Swords?” The name-dropping did not phase Mo Xuanzun. He scanned everybody who were there and asked coldly, “Which one of them are from Pillar’s Clan of Magical Swords?”

Everybody turned and looked at the man in black together, giving him no chance of hiding but exposed completed in front of Mo Xuanzun.

“Greetings to Young Master Mo from Zhao Danyu,” said the man in black while kneeling on one knee and lowered his head solemnly and respectfully.

With Mo Xuanzun’s status, even Zhao Danyu’s young master must bow to him respectfully. And he was but a little outside disciple2. Him being able to stand in front of this young master was already a blessing; how would he dare to be imprudent to him!

His behavior and mannerism shocked everyone there. The imperious and arrogant man in black just knelt down in front of the genius mathematician of Temple of Divine Plans. His behavior almost have everyone’s eyes popped out of their sockets.

Mo Xuanzun merely glanced at him through squinted eyes and said slowly, “I remember you.  You are one of the followers of Ning Xiao, the ninth out of the top ten disciples. Am I right?”

“Yes, I am an outside disciple and follower of shi xiong Ning!” Zhao Danyu broke out in cold sweat. He dare not be slow in his responses!

The conversation between them enlightened everyone else. The master of young master Gu was but an outside disciple of Clan of Magical Swords, the follower of one of the top disciples. Anything one looked at it, he himself was still a servant of someone else.

Granted, none of these cultivator would even want to step on the toes of a servant of the Clan of Magical Swords.



1. How the bribe’s family refer to the “son-in-law”. Using pingyin for lack of a good equivalent in English. Basically Old Man Ying was referring to genius mathematician as Cheng Xiao Xiao’s husband.

2. An official disciple would move in and reside within the organization. “Outside disciples” are the less official, second class ones.


Random words of the translator:

Gotta looove that Old Man Ying. He could totally take care of Gong Zixuan, but noooooo, he want to get him in trouble with the genius mathematician instead. LOL
