TWQQF ch 378 - The Misunderstanding was Resolved; The Visit of the Parents (3)

“LIttle Yuteng, when you put it that way, you mean martial apprentices, martial scholars, martial masters, martial spiritualists, martial kings, martial emperors, and martial monarchs are all low-level cultivators?”

“You can say that, martial apprentices, martial scholars, martial masters, martial spiritualists, martial kings, martial emperors, and martial monarchs are all low-level cultivators; martial celestials, martial saints, martial spirits, martial monarchs, and martial gods are mid-level cultivators; and godly forefathers, godly supremacists, godly monarchs, godly channels are apex-level cultivators.”

“Any superior being or immortal cultivators?” Suddenly Cheng Xiao Xiao thought about cultivators that went beyond human capabilities.

“That I am not sure just yet. This is all I know for now!”

“That’s alright, those were too far away anyway. Knowing or what wouldn’t make any differences.”

“Yes, you are right, Young Mistress!”

When Cheng Xiao Xiao was communicating with little Yuteng telepathically, Mo Xuanzun had also gone on to explain why mystical device are divided into three different levels. Mainly the difference lies with the creator of the device. As the creator fall into different levels, as do the devices that they create. The more powerful creators will, naturally, create more powerful devices.

As the current company had never have any contacts with any of the device makers, nor did they have any chance of becoming one themselves, they were not too interested in the subject and did not pursue about the different levels of device makers.

“If we want to set up chained arrangements, we will need a large quantity of mystical devices. Ideally, we can have sacred devices as the backbone or, at the very minimum, a high-level device. These will be difficult to find on the open market, so we will need to make a trip to Alchemist Valley.”

Mo Xuanzun turned and said to the person next to him, “Xiao Xiao, after shi fu and shi mu had visited, we will head to Alchemist Valley. I trust that they will do us good will and let us purchase a few expensive items.”

“Okay! That sounds good!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao agreed to his suggestion. Suddenly, after a slight pause, she asked excitedly, “Did you say your shi fu and shi mu will be visiting?”

“Yes, Xiao Xiao. I have asked them to make a trip here to finalized our betrothal!” Mo Xuanzun nodded with a big smile. “They should be arriving in the next few days.”

“How come I didn’t know about it?” Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t too pleased about being kept in the dark.

“Alright, Xiao Xiao, you don’t need to concern yourself about that!” Cheng Biyuan didn’t want his daughter to make a fuss so he quickly changed the subject and said, “We planned to build a Count’s Court in Qing’an Province. Xiao Xiao, you have any thoughts?”

“Count’s Court?”

Cheng Xiao Xiao was a bit surprised. She hadn’t thought about it before but it made sense. Her dad had earned the title of Count Zhongyuan for a few months already and every time he went to take care of business, he either stayed in an inn or the government structure. That was not an ideal long-term solution.

Not to mention that during festivity seasons, he would need to host other nobles. He couldn’t possibly invite them all over the current Cheng’s house.

“If that’s what we need, then let’s get started. It wasn’t like we can’t afford it.”

Smiling bitterly, Zhou Jinjiang chimed in, “Xiao Xiao, you don’t run the family so you don’t know the half of it. Who said we have unlimited amount of money? We don’t currently have a lot of income coming in, yet there are so many things we need to spend money on!”


This was when it occurred to Cheng Xiao Xiao that even though she had made a ton at the auction, but mainly they were trading for mystical stones. With the exception of the tribute that they had received a few months ago, this family didn’t really have a steady source of income…..

  1. Not just no stable income, they have barely any. She took all the mystical stones from the auction for herself and keeps taking everything and everyone's items and goods and chucking them in her dimension.
    How her family managed to keep them afloat on everything besides the food and labor for construction(read slavery) is commendable.
