ch 500 - Wish of Her Mother; An Evil Person 1
Cheng Xiao Xiao teased her two seniors when she ran into them in the garden.
Sure enough, the two ladies had changed a lot since their breakthrough. And it wasn’t just their temperament; they even looked to be 10 years younger and more stunning. Anyone who didn’t know better would think that they were in their twenties.
“Oh, you child, teasing us now!” said Rong Jingshi with a smile.
Cheng Xiao Xiao walked over to her and, smiling delicately, said, “Shi mu, I am only telling the truth. Shi mu looks like an older sister of mine. Young and pretty!”
“Oh, look at you. That mouth of yours is getting sweeter and sweeter every day!” All women liked to be praised and Rong Jingshi was no different than any one else. She patted Cheng Xiao Xiao on her hand and asked, “You’ve told the few elders?”
“Yes, I have told them.” Cheng Xiao Xiao nodded and smiled indifferently.
Madam Gong, next to them, covered up her mouth and smiled. “They must not be able to make up their mind right away. They will need some time to really think over it.”
“Exactly. They probably won’t be able to breakthrough without coming to terms with it first anyway. Might as well take some time and really think it through first. Once they have it figured out and make their decisions, they can reach back out to Xiao Xiao for help.” Rong Jingshi nodded. She had a pretty good idea what was going through the minds of the old monsters.
“I don’t care what they want. It’s not that important anyway.” Cheng Xiao Xiao wouldn’t waste her time to think about this. She wasn’t interested in what they were thinking about.
“Oh, right, Xiao Xiao. I am going to return with your master tomorrow. We will bring the cultivation doctrines with us the next time we come,” said Rong Jingshi to Cheng Xiao Xiao, remembering the news that she had just found out.
Cheng Xiao Xiao felt touched and pouted playfully. “Aiya, shi mu, there’s no rush. You should stay and solidify your cultivation some more first. Besides, I have figured out something as well. We will have a lot of mantra and magical power soon. We are in no shortage for cultivation doctrines.”
“Xiao Xiao, we know you will figure something out but the cultivation doctrines weren’t doing much sitting at Temple of Divine Plans anyway. So might as well give them to you to pass onto your disciples.”
“Wait, what’s going on here?” Madam Gong was very baffled from listening to the conversation between the two.
Now that she had a solution, Cheng Xiao Xiao see no need to keep it from her so she shared with Madam Gong about how her family was lacking some cultivation doctrines.
Madam Gong was a smart person. She understood it right away, nodded and said, “Oh, I see. No worries. We have some cultivation doctrines at Palace of Immortal Beasts. They are a bit on the crude side but will be sufficient for your disciples. I’ll have Zixuan bring them over in a little.”
“That’s quite alright, Aunty Gong. We can figure it out.” Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled and declined her politely. They were in no shortage of cultivation doctrines nor did she want to use others.
“Little girl, what do you mean by that?”
Madam Gong frowned, displeased, and said, “Are you treating me like an outsider? Never mind that you and Zixuan are close like sisters. Now that she’s with your uncle, we are like a family.”
“Eh, Aunty Gong, you know about it?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was a little bit surprised.
“Of course I do. Do you think I am blind?” said Madam Gong as she rolled her eyes. “That kid Zixuan. She only has eyes for your uncle, what else can I do?”
“What, what? Aunty Gong, don’t tell me that you don’t like my uncle!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao as she lifted her brows.
Madam Gong hrmphed and said, without beating around the bush, “You are right. When I first found out from kiddo Zixuan that she had fallen for you uncle since years ago, I wasn’t too fond of him from a mother’s perspective, even if he is a martial king right now.
“You are not a mother and you don’t understand the kind of anticipation a mother has for her child. Boy or girl, they are always the best in their mother’s eyes. When they look for a spouse, we’d always want them to find the best. I trust that’s the mentality of every mother.
“From an overall perspective, your uncle is very talented, no doubt. But as far as Clan of Magical Swords is concerned, his talent is just alright. He has just become a sacred disciple at age 30 so, naturally, he isn’t the best candidate for a son-in-law. Does that make sense?”
