Chapter 64: Reaching Over and Touching Cheng Shizhao Everywhere (2)
The two ladies were clearly extremely afraid, trembling in fear and their cheeks flushed. On either side of them, one fat and one skinny servant girls were supporting them in the hall.
The plump servant girl was shaking while the skinny one who had almond eyes was a bit courageous and clever. She blocked in front of them and said, “My young miss is a sincere worshipper of Buddha. May I ask why you guys are taking us here? If you guys want money, there’s enough money in the bag for you guys to share. We just want you guys to show mercy and let us back down the mountain. We will definitely burn incense daily and pray, thanking everyone for their kind hearts.”
The fierce thieves burst into loud laughter and said, “We aren’t lacking in gold or silver, only ladies to be our wives of brigand chief.”
When Huang Tiangu saw the two beautiful women’s appearances, he was unable to contain his joy and his heart itched at the sight.
He tugged on his monk gown and pretended to be polite, saying, “You two ladies are extremely gorgeous and I really love you guys. I have big businesses, gold and silver for the ladies to spend, and food and wine for the ladies to eat and drink. If the two ladies are willing, we can imitate Ehuang Nvying and the three of us can be happily married for the rest of our lives. The other two young misses can pick amongst my brothers who they have their eyes set on and marry them as well.”
The servant girl revealed a shocked expression and asked timidly, “You’re a monk so how can you get married?”
Huang Tiangu said, “After seeing this lady’s beautiful appearance, even senior monks are unable to hold back. They must return to their normal lives and even Buddha can’t escape from this fate, needing a Buddhist nun.”
That servant girl covered her face and said, “What if we don’t agree?”
Huang Tiangu’s face darkened and he replied, “Then don’t blame me for not being fair to you guys. We will strip you of your clothes and dig out your hearts as we eat it along with rice.”
That servant girl fell to the ground and sobbed, saying, “What a pitiful moment, what a pitiful moment. Heaven, why must you watch as we are trapped in their hands? Young misses, we have no other choice but to agree. It’s more important to save our lives.”
The two “young misses” were speechless.
Zhou Xiaoxiao was a drama queen and was enthusiastically performing right now.
Suddenly, a cry came from the main hall.
Everyone looked over to see Cheng Shiqi who was tied to the pillar still. He originally thought he would’ve died for sure and his soul was half gone from the fright. He saw stars flying everywhere and heard the sound of the bronze drum ringing over and over.
He then slowly woke up and vaguely heard a woman crying and speaking.
The voice was familiar and he opened his eyes and identified the crying woman to be Zhou Xiaoxiao and her chubby servant girl.
There were two other beautiful women behind Zhou Xiaoxiao who seemed familiar, but he couldn’t recognize them for the time being.
Cheng Shiqi looked closely and suddenly realized that the two women were Cheng Shizhao and Yu Xingzhi in disguise. He couldn’t help but call out.
Thankfully, he wasn’t completely stupid and corrected “Ah, Royal Brother save me!” into “Ah! Royal — King Huang, please have mercy!”
Huang Tiangu then remembered Cheng Shiqi and pondered: since these ladies are crying nonstop, they probably won’t surrender easily. I shall dig the heart out of this cash cow and scare them. I bet they will surrender to this grandfather right then.
Who knew that the moment he was about to turn around, Zhou Xiaoxiao threw herself at his feet and tugged on his sleeves. She sobbed and choked, “Young miss said that as long as the King promises her three things, she will surrender to the king! Wu, wu, wu!”
Cheng Shizhao and Yu Xingzhi were speechless.
Huang Tiangu was delightful and hurriedly said, “Don’t mention just agreeing to three things but once the ladies agree to be my wives, I’ll even grant you guys 300 wishes.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao said, “Our young miss comes from a respected family so if the King is sincere and wants to marry her, you have to set up a banquet and kowtow to the heaven and earth. That way, our young miss can marry the King.”
As she said this, she tugged on Yu Xingzhi. “Right, young miss?”
Yu Xingzhi smiled gorgeously and lifted her sleeves over to cover her face, turning to the side.
Huang Tiangu felt himself turning soft at her appearance and promised accordingly. “Of course, of course. I’ll tell my minions to set up a banquet and we can conduct our ceremony momentarily.”
