TWQQF ch 367 - Saw Through; Finishing Up With Constructions (2)

“Remember, he is going to be the next Housemaster. If he is going to stay at the martial master level, how is he ever going to step into the role of Housemaster? None of the other elders would want to have a martial master Housemaster. You must keep that in mind!”

The First Elder delivered the warning in the most austere of tones. Cheng Yutang did not show any signs of displeasure; in fact, he was very touched. After all, the First Elder has his son’s best interest in mind.

“Don’t worry, First Elder. I will take care of this!”

Looking at the very respectful person in front of him, the First Elder’s look finally softened up a bit, “I am only saying this for your own good, we don’t a problem at hand….”

“Dad, First Elder….”

Along with the voice came the figure of a person. He was, indeed, the center of the discussion – Cheng Bihua.

“Why are you here?”

Cheng Yutang was a little worried that his son interrupted First Elder’s conversation. He peeked at the man next to him and felt a little relieved when he saw that there was no displeasure showing on the other person.

Cheng Bihua did not pay too much attention to his own father but walked in front of the First Elder and cupped his hands, “Greetings from Bihua, First Elder!”

“Mmm, what are you doing here?” The First Elder looked at the man in front of him with tenderness. There was even a hint of a smile on his otherwise cold face.

“First Elder, I came to announce that I would like to take a trip!” Cheng Bihua, looking like he was on cloud nine, brought up what was on his mind.

Cheng Yutang paused for a second and, displeased, said, “Where do you want to go now? Look at you, you never wanted to focus on your cultivation!”

“Dad, why are you always interfering with my freedom?”

Cheng Bihua was not young anymore, but he had always been spoiled since he was a child and has always have his ways within the Cheng’s, so he still has a very unruly personality, always just doing what came to his mind. He had further been named the next Housemaster by the First Elder, so over time, even his respect for Cheng Yutang was slowly fading away.

“How dare you!” shouted Cheng Yutang.

“Well, I am telling the truth!” Cheng Bihua knew that his dad wouldn’t do anything out of line in front of the First Elder, so he wasn’t worried of his dad right now.

“Alright…” The First Elder cast a nonchalant look at Cheng Yutang. After seeing that he had lowered his head, he turned back to Cheng Bihua and asked gently, “Well, where do you want to go this time?”

“First Elder, Bihua would like to pay a visit to Willows. I heard that Eleventh Elder was there already, so I thought…”

“Shut up! You ungrateful thing!”

Cheng Yutang let out a loud cry and swing his arm. SLAP!!! And it landed squarely on the cheek of the overexcited Cheng Bihua.

Cheng Bihua, his face now burning from the pain, shouted out, “Dad, why did you slap me?”

“Goddamn it, I am going to beat you to death. You never wanted to cultivate, just hang around all day long doing nothing. You want to stick your hand into every pot, and all you do is bring about more chaos. What else do you…..”

Frantic from anger, Cheng Yutang shouted at his son standing in front of him, looking like he was hopeless.

At this moment, First Elder, who was still sitting at his seat, was no longer looking tender at all. Coldly, he looked at the palm print that was now showing on Cheng Bihua’s face, as though he was trying to sear it into his memory.

On the other hand, Cheng Bihua was clueless why his father just slapped him. He was frightened and confused, and he cried up in discontent, “This wouldn’t be the first time I go and cause trouble at Willows, why can’t I go?”

“Because I said so!” Shouted Cheng Yutang. He turned around and, sure enough, saw that First Elder’s look was dark and cold. He immediately added, “First Elder, don’t worry. I would not let him head to Willows. I shall make him go back to cultivating behind closed doors!”

    1. I wouldn't be too surprised. With how he kidnapped Xiao Xiao's relative and keeps her locked up in his quarters that noone else is allowed to enter, I wouldn't put it past him to be a lustful "I am powerful" type who gets it on with anyone and anything he can bring under his control and/or intimidation.

  2. If he ends up going to the village nevertheless and Xiao Xiao doesn't just outright kill him on the spot, then I sure hope that the emperor city Cheng's end up killing Xiao Xiao and her family, because such retardation deserves only death.

    1. Please ensure you never claim to be human so that everyone who is human wont be grossly embarassed to be lumped together with you. Actually you outright give a bad name to all sapient beings. Dont claim that either

    2. Actually from this, it seems like he has a good relationship with 11th Elder...and may end up being an ally for Xiao Xiao once he discovers what his old man and 1st Elder have been doing. Really...not all Chengs deserve death at first sight
