ch 446 - The Elders Were Happy; Assignment (6)
Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t care much about it. Sitting inside the car, she pretended that nothing was happening, “No need. Just ignore them!”
She had expected that this carriage would draw a lot of attention when she first saw it. This was well within the norm.
Soon, words about this carriage spread throughout the entire Qing’an Province. Everybody turned their heads and wanted to know who was inside the vehicle.
After being on the road for one day and one night, they finally arrived at the Province Government.
The unique vehicle attracted a lot of attention and all sorts of curious noises and speculations could be heard.
Elder, along with a few guards, came out to greet them after they were notified of their arrival.
Finally, the carriage stopped in front of the largest inn within the Province Government city.
“Elder Ying, you made a trip yourself!”
Elder was a bit surprised to see the most skilled person of the Cheng’s showing up there, but once he thought about the one inside the vehicle, it all made sense. Everybody knew that Elder Ying has the utmost respect for Cheng Xiao Xiao.
So it’s only natural that he came with her when she paid a visit.
At this time, the curtain of the carriage was lifted up and out came Mo Xuanzun. Elder cupped his hands, “Guye.”
“Elder!” nodded Mo Xuanzun as he helped the person in the carriage to get out.
They both nodded and greeted each other.
The passersby saw the man and woman that looked like they came straight out of a fairy tale and couldn’t help but discussed softly. They had a pretty good idea who they were.
After all, everybody knew that Count Zhongyuan was building his new resident within the city limit of the Province Government city and, now that the ones from the Count’s resident was so polite to these two, they must be the owners of the property.
Of course, some of the cultivators actually recognized them.
“It’s them! It’s Genius Numerologist of Temple of Divine Plans and Maiden Cheng of the Cheng’s!”
“No wonder they were referred to as the perfect couple. But why are they here?”
“Did something happen inside the city limit?”
“Wow, they were, indeed, from Sacred Land Zhongyuan. This car alone was priceless!”
Among the sounds of all sorts of discussions, they have already entered into the inn and the carriage was taken away by one of the Cheng’s guards.
This inn, too, was the property of Green Mountain Manor. Even though none of those who worked there had met Cheng Xiao Xiao in the past, that didn’t stop them from knowing who she was.
Guided by the enthusiastic innkeeper, the group were led into the small courtyard that they had reserved.
Cheng Xiao Xiao tied herself up and met with the Elder in the small side room.
“Elder, how’s it going in the city?” asked Cheng Xiao Xiao after she had taken a seat.
Elder smiled slightly and said, “Not too bad. We needed more manpower, which was why I reached out to the housemaster and see how he wanted this handled.”
“If that’s the case, let’s spread the news today that the Count’s resident is looking for guards!” That was the purpose of her trip so Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t want to waste anymore time and just cut to the chase.
“Miss, the population in the city might be high, but suitable individuals are still hard to find!”
Elder was a bit hesitant, “If we are to hire more help, preferably they’d be at least martial masters. Of course, if they have good potentials, we will consider martial scholars as well.”
“Sounds good, Elder. You are better at deciding that, we will follow you lead on setting the standards. As for their loyalty, you leave that up to me. I will make sure they will remain loyal to the Cheng’s!”
Seeing how confident she was, Elder didn’t know what to say. Finally, he just nodded.
Suddenly, Mo Xuanzun chimed in, “Xiao Xiao, what do you have in mind about the method of recruiting?”
“Oh, you have someone in mind?” Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at him, curious.
“I don’t know if it’s a great idea, but if we wanted to recruit, we might as well draw more attention by setting up an arena for open challenge.”
