TWQQF ch 354 - Convinced to Move; Misunderstandings and Broken Heart (4)

“She is, indeed, Cheng Xiao Xiao and Cheng Biyuan is my father-in-law. We were on our father-in-law’s order to come to extend our invitation toward Eleventh Elder,” explained Mo Xuanzun.

Cheng Huihui casted a glance at the elegant nobleman standing in front of her and ever so naturally dragged Cheng Xiao Xiao closer to and asked, “Xiao Xiao, you got married?”

“Aunty, no, he….” Cheng Xiao Xiao blushed and shyly, she replied, “He’s just a thick-skinned tool!”

“Xiao Xiao, why would you say such a thing? Father-in-law and mother-in-law had already agreed to our betrothal, I am your fiancée!” Quickly Mo Xuanzun clarified his relationship to Cheng Xiao Xiao.

Cheng Yu, looking a little better than before, was a bit surprised. He didn’t realize that the man and woman who had just saved him were Cheng Biyuan’s daughter and son-in-law. He had tried so hard to stay away from it all and, after all his family members were gone, still couldn’t avoid his fate…

He felt very complicated emotionally all of a sudden.

“I apologize, Eleventh Elder. My father-in-law did not know that there were killers after you and your family. It was entirely co-incidental that when father-in-law have his men tailing the people of Emperor City Cheng’s discovering that they have sent people toward Mocheng. It was then we have learned about what was going on and he sent Xiao Xiao and I to come for you right away!”

Mo Xuanzun looked at them intently and carried on, “I was not aware of your relationship with Xiao Xiao last time when I saved you in the valley, hence I have not reported this incident to my father-in-law immediately.”

“That was very nice of Biyuan!”

Cheng Yu felt better after hearing his words. Then, looking at the bodies strewn across the courtyard, his eyes were full of tears. Through gritted teeth, he growled in a low voice, “These bastards. They are not even humans!”

“Grandpa….” The Young Cheng Lihui tugged at the hand of his grandfather and choked, “Grandpa, Hui-er misses his mommy and daddy….”

Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at the merely 4 or 5 years old little boy. He was still 1 to 2 years younger than Lan Lan. From his words, she could gather that his parents had already…

“Hui-er still has grandpa….,” Cheng Yu quickly wiped away his tears and picked up his young grandson.

Cheng Huihui was also crying. They didn’t expect this would be the outcome of the move – only the free of them left in the entire family.

“C’mon in…” was all Cheng Yu said before he turned around and headed back inside the house.

Inside the little living room was nothing but a table to dine on and a few chairs; nothing else. It was crude, but still better than Cheng Xiao Xiao’s family back then.

They have all taken a seat and the little boy Cheng Lihui, under his grandfather’s comfort, finally stopped crying. He was now sitting quietly in his grandfather’s arms and looking at Cheng Xiao Xiao and Mo Xuanzun curiously.

Before anyone asked, Cheng Yu started recounting the story of how he was being pursued by the Cheng’s. This was already the fourth time they went after him. The first time they only killed a few servants. But that was enough to frightened Mrs. Cheng Yu. The stress from that time and fatigue from the travel still got to her and she finally passed away from illness.

The second time, the Cheng’s started slaughtering Cheng Yu’s family members. That was when his son and daughter-in-law were killed. As they put up the most resistance, they also lost the most people that time. Most of the women in the household were gone, along with half of the family members.

The third time, they were in a valley just a few miles from where they were right now, the more removed nieces and nephews were also slaughtered while trying to protect Cheng Yu and his immediate family. If it was Mo Xuanzun who happened to show up and saved them, Cheng Huihui and the grandson would also have died that time.

This one time, the Cheng’s directly told them to move onto Qing’an Province. Cheng Yu refused and all of his servants were killed, leaving just the three of them.
