TWQQF ch 374 - Saw Through; Finishing Up With Constructions (9)

“Your memories were slipping? Why is that?”

Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at the man who was smiling like a cunning fox and asked, alerted, “What are you plotting now? If my memory serves me right, you have fairly good memories, almost photographic!”

“Never, Xiao Xiao. I am telling the truth. You must believe me!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao gave him a dubious look and nodded, “Okay, then you tell me. What is it that you want?”

“Xiao Xiao, I love having cooked millet when I am thinking. I want millet made by Xiao Xiao!”

“If you want millet, why not just have a servant make it for you?” What kind of a request was that? Cheng Xiao Xiao was baffled.

Mo Xuanzun nodded and his smile brightened, “Nope! I want millet made by you personally!”

“Sure, no problem. When I have some free time!”

“I want Xiao Xiao to cook for me going forward….”

“Miss, guye…..”

A houseboy came running over urgently and interrupted their conversation.

The two of them looked over at him and Cheng Xiao Xiao could tell he was the houseboy of the main quarter and she couldn’t help but asked, “What is the matter?”

“Miss, guye. The men from the Clan of Magical Swords are here!”

“Huh? Why are they here?” Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned. She hated it when people like that showed up.

“Xiao Xiao, it will be fine!” Mo Xuanzun pursed his lips and didn’t mind about it. He asked the houseboy, “How many of them? Approximately what age are they?”

“To reply guye, two young men. They said they are friends of Miss and guye!” replied the houseboy respectfully.
Having heard that, Cheng Xiao Xiao and Mo Xuanzun exchanged a look and shouted out two names, “Ma Chaoyu! Wang Siwei!”

So, it was those two!

When they returned to the living room, it was, indeed, the two young men that they have met at Chunyang Town. They hadn’t expected them to show up here.

“Why are you here?” asked Mo Xuanzun, not sounding too overly happy.

Cheng Xiao Xiao just nodded at them and didn’t even bother saying anything.

Shi xiong Mo, shi sao Mo, greetings….” said Ma Chaoyu as he stood up and cupped his hands at them.

Wang Siwei dare not be disrespectfully. Slightly embarrassed, he also cupped his hands at them and said, “Shi xiong Mo, shi sao Mo, we meet again!”

When Cheng Biyuan saw that his daughter and Mo Xuanzun both knew them, he finally felt relieved. He did, after all, feel a little pressure from the name Clan of the Magical Sword.

“Xiao Xiao, Young Man Mo, since you are all acquainted, enjoy yourself. I still have some matters to attend to.”

Standing up, Cheng Biyuan understood that he didn’t have a lot in common with the young men. Besides, it looked like they were mostly here for his daughter and Mo Xuanzun.

Mo Xuanzun curtsied him respectfully and said, “We will see you later, father-in-law. I will take care of matters here!”

“Okay, you youngsters enjoy yourself!” said Cheng Biyuan as he nodded to the two guests.

“You take care, Housemaster Cheng!”

“Thank you for your hospitality, Housemaster Cheng!”

The two of them dare not look down on this housemaster. Even though he was just a count in title, he also has the status of a martial king. That in and of itself commanded respect.

Seeing Cheng Biyuan off, the four of them took their seats again.

By now, Mo Xuanzun was already half way to a host at the Cheng’s. He asked directly, “Are you here to purchase mystical animals or mystical water?”

As far as he was concerned, the Clan of Magical Swords was in no shortage of these items. After all, they were the world-renounced Clan of Magical Swords, their resources were unrivaled by any others. They had plenty of supplies remaining and there was no need for them to be making external purchases.

“Yes, we need to buy some and bring back with us. It was an assignment from the clan. The reward wasn’t great, but it was also a good experience to complete this assignment.”

Ma Chaoyu told them the purpose of his visit directly without hiding anything from them.
