TWQQF ch 386 - Betrothal; Price to Pay (1)

The girl appearing in front of them was wearing a plain-colored dress, her hair fell onto her shoulder. She was slender and shapely.

She resembled the cherry-blossom, her eyes sparkled like the night sky, and her lips, with a hint of pink-colored lipstick, on her light-colored skin. Her poise and every movement of hers exuded wit and intelligence. Her entire person appeared spiritual and instantly grabbed everyone’s attention.

With a slight hint of smile on her pretty face, she met everybody’s gaze in stride!

She walked up to the party and curtsied to her parents, “Mom, Dad!”

“You are here, Xiao Xiao,” smiled Mrs. Cheng, her face full of tenderness.

Old Man Ying stood up and cupped his hands at her respectfully and said, “Miss.”

A hint of surprised flashed passed all visitor’s eyes. They were all astonished by how respectful Old Man Ying, a martial emperor, was toward Cheng Xiao Xiao.

Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded at him and, turning her head, Mo Xuanzun had already walked over to her, held her hand, and walked her over to Mo Yuze and his wife. Smiling, he introduced her to them, “Xiao Xiao, this is my master and shi mu!”

“Greetings from Xiao Xiao, Master and shi mu!”

With a gentle but bright smile, Cheng Xiao Xiao did her best in suppressing her nervousness and greeted her seniors respectfully. Her face full of respect and tenderness, showing no shyness or pretentious; she was poised and noble like.

“Good girl!” nodded Mo Yuze in contentment. He approved this “daughter-in-law” wholeheartedly.

Rong Jingshi, who had been observing Cheng Xiao Xiao quietly up to this point, finally gave a joyous smile and walked up to take Cheng Xiao Xiao’s hand into her own and said, “My Zun-er has good taste. He had found himself a good wife.”

“Thank you, shi mu!” Blushing, Cheng Xiao Xiao finally felt relieved.

Sitting on the other side, Gong Zixuan smiled and pouted, “Sister Xiao Xiao, am I chopped liver now that you have met your mother-in-law shi mu?”

“Sister Zixuan! You came too! And Miss Jun-er as well!”  Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled at them when she made eye contact with them.

Miss Jun-er found this genuinely astonishing. She finally said, “Miss Cheng, you truly like Mr. Mok!” As though she was still having a hard time believing it.

Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled, nodded, and graciously admitted to it, “Yeah, this tool can be quite pleasing!”

Everybody chuckled. It was obviously that the two of younglings had genuine feelings toward each other. Mo Xuanzun took her hand, led her closer to him and said, “Xiao Xiao, let me introduce you to these two elders!”

“Sure!” Naturally, Cheng Xiao Xiao had noticed them soon as she walked in; she just hadn’t greeted them yet as she has not yet been introduced to them. After all, the most important visitors today were Mo Xuanzun’s master and shi mu.

“Xiao Xiao, this is Clan Master Qin of Clan of Magical Swords, and this other one is Valley Master Ji of Alchemy Valley. They came with master and shi mu this time.”

After that introduction, he turned to the two elders and said, “Clan Master Qin and Valley Master Ji, this is the fiancĂ©e that I have picked for myself!”

“Greetings, Clan Master Qin. Greetings, Valley Master Ji! It was nice meeting the two of you!” Cheng Xiao Xiao greeted the guests politely.

The two elders laughed happily and Clan Master Qin said, “Maiden Cheng’s reputation preceded. I am glad we can finally meet and, surely, Miss Xiao Xiao is no ordinary girl. I hope you didn’t mind Old Ji and I visiting unannounced!”

“Yes, Miss Xiao Xiao. We tagged along with Temple Master Mo so we can have the opportunity to meet the well-known Miss Xiao Xiao,” smiled Valley Master Ji.

The two elders weren’t just polite, there was also an almost undetectable hint of respect in their tone. That startled everyone present. With their statuses, they needn’t even be polite to a young girl like Cheng Xiao Xiao, let alone showing respect toward her.
