Chapter 34: Go On a Date
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After tidying up everything, Gong Ziliang opened the wooden boxes of the three escort carriages. He looked at the trembling children and felt an indescribable heartache.
He smiled warmly at the children and said, “Little ones, don’t be afraid. Brother is here to save you. I’ll bring you home to find your parents tomorrow morning.”
Although Gong Ziliang spoke softly, the children still curled up in fear.
When Bai Chuxia saw this, she hurriedly boarded the carriage and became even closer to the children. She looked at the children and said warmly, “Children, be good. Brother and Sister will bring you home. Stay at Sister’s house tonight and change into new clothes. Tomorrow morning, we’ll return to Cloud Glow City to find your parents.”
At this moment, one of the little boys looked at Bai Chuxia with watery eyes and asked tentatively, “Is Sister’s house very big? We have a lot of people.”
When she heard that, Bai Chuxia smiled and said, “Of course.”
Xu Fei, who was standing at the side, also said, “Little brother, no matter how many people you have, this sister’s house is very big. Tonight, we’ll eat good food and wear nice clothes. Then, I’ll bring you to view the fireworks. Do you want it?”
“Yes, yes, yes. I want it.”
“I haven’t seen fireworks in a long time.”
“I miss my parents.”
“What are fireworks?”
“I want to eat pork knuckles.”
“I want to eat pork knuckles and watch the fireworks.”
One child started, and the other children had the courage to speak up.
Xu Fei said happily, “Alright, alright. Tonight, arrange it!”
After that, everyone started to return to Green Cloud City.
The mission this morning was completed perfectly. However, Gong Ziliang still had doubts in his mind. Who was the person behind the Hua Clan’s escort agency?
On this point, Gong Ziliang suspected that there was a spy in the Profound Heaven Sect.
It seemed that he had to return to the Profound Heaven Sect tomorrow after accompanying the children to Cloud Glow City and entrust this matter to Junior Sister Liu Yingying to inform Sect Master Xuan Guangzi.
After all… Junior Sister Liu Yingying had a strong background!
With First Elder Liu around, this matter was settled!
Soon, everyone escorted the people from the Hua Clan’s escort agency and the fifteen children back to Green Cloud City.
The members of the Hua Clan’s escort agency were all taken to the prison to be locked up first. The children were brought by Xu Fei and others to change their clothes and dress well.
At this moment, Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia arrived in the garden of the City Lord’s Mansion to meet Bai Qingfeng.
Bai Qingfeng sat under the pavilion and sipped his black tea. When he saw Bai Chuxia return, he hurriedly put down the teacup in his hand and stood up with his hands spread out.
He said, “Oh my, my precious daughter is back at noon. Are you injured? Do you want me to give you a few medicinal pills to eat?”
“Sigh, Father, I didn’t even have the chance to attack. How could I be injured? They were all killed by the three big brothers you sent. I just watched the show.”
Bai Chuxia sat down and poured tea into Bai Qingfeng’s teacup first, followed by a cup for herself and Gong Ziliang respectively.
Bai Qingfeng also smiled when he heard that, “Not bad, not bad. In that case, has the matter been resolved?”
Bai Chuxia nodded.
At the same time, Bai Qingfeng also sat down and said to Gong Ziliang, “Kid, come, come, sit down and chat.”
Gong Ziliang hurriedly sat down. He did not know what Bai Qingfeng would say to him, so he listened attentively.
Bai Qingfeng said, “I’ll order people to escort these people from the Hua Clan’s escort agency to Cloud Glow City tomorrow morning and send the children back safely. The two of you don’t have to worry about this matter anymore because I have an important matter to hand to the two of you.”
Upon hearing this, Gong Ziliang and Bai Chuxia looked at each other. Regarding this, the two of them completely did not know what important thing Bai Qingfeng was talking about.
Gong Ziliang initiated, “Senior Bai, please speak.”
Bai Qingfeng laughed and said, “Go shopping in the city with my precious daughter and eat our local snacks. Go on a date or something.”
Gong Ziliang: “???”
Bai Chuxia: “???”
“Father? What are you thinking? What’s the difference between this and selling your daughter?”
Bai Chuxia was shocked.
It was the same for Gong Ziliang. Although it was quite good to be able to date a beauty like Bai Chuxia, why did Bai Qingfeng do this?
Could it be that he had taken a fancy to the handsome and elegant Gong Ziliang and felt that he matched Bai Chuxia?
As expected, this was still his charm!
Bai Qingfeng gently touched his beard and smiled. “My precious daughter has been missing for an entire year. As soon as she returned, she brought a man home. Could it be that he’s not your boyfriend?”
Bai Chuxia was speechless for a moment. She paused for a moment and hurriedly said, “Father, he’s a disciple of the Profound Heaven Sect. He took a sect mission to protect the Hua Clan’s escort agency. Later on, he discovered the plot behind this, so he followed me to Green Cloud City. Don’t think too much.”
Gong Ziliang also said, “That’s right, Senior Bai. The matter of the Hua Clan’s escort agency is complicated, and the people and things involved are complicated. I’ve indeed come here for this matter.”
When Bai Qingfeng heard this, he did not continue. Instead, he smiled and got up to leave slowly. In the end, he said, “It’s fine. Young man, take your time. Oh right, my precious daughter, arrange a room for this kid and let him rest well. We’ll watch the fireworks together tonight.”
Then, seeing Bai Qingfeng leave, Bai Chuxia hurriedly apologized to Gong Ziliang. “I’m sorry. My father is old and loves to talk nonsense.”
Gong Ziliang waved his hand and smiled in response.
Then, Gong Ziliang came to the room to rest and temporarily said goodbye to Bai Chuxia. Looking at this spacious room, no one would come to find him for a while.
He would definitely cultivate first.
After all, if he did not eat the Fire Cat King’s spirit core, his entire body would feel uncomfortable.
As a matter of fact, Gong Ziliang immediately took out this Fire Cat King’s spirit core that was the size of a ping pong ball and looked especially like a walnut from his inventory. He held it in his hand and started to absorb it like he was absorbing spirit stones.
Immediately, a stream of spiritual qi that was denser than the spiritual qi brought about by spirit stones surged into Gong Ziliang’s body and spread throughout his entire body. Gong Ziliang could fully feel that every pore in his body was filled with spiritual qi.
This made him focus even more.
Today, when he saw those three seventh-stage Qi Refinement Realm guards easily annihilate a large group of first-stage Qi Refinement Realm cultivators, Gong Ziliang felt a trace of fear.
After all, in the Martial Spirit Continent where there were many sects, the situation of the weak and the strong was always like this.
Many people had pursued strength their entire lives and continuously tempered this place in order to step into a higher realm.
This Fire Cat King’s spirit core was something that many families wanted to fight for.
In order to consolidate their family’s status in this world, they would pay any price to let their people step into a higher realm. They would spend a large amount of money to purchase spirit pills and miraculous medicines.
This Fire Cat King’s spirit core was exactly what they needed the most.
However, Gong Ziliang wanted to increase his strength, so he chose not to sell the Fire Cat King’s spirit core and absorbed it himself instead.
At the same time…
