Before anyone said anything, the pleasantly-surprised Old Man Ying asked, “Miss, so were you able to bring him back? I want to see!”

“See? See what?” Cheng Xiao Xiao waved her hand, “You still got work to do!”

“Hehe, that's small task. I will continue with the auction right away!”

Old Man Ying seemed very eager to find out the whereabout of the iron-armed bear so he anxiously wanted to get back to the auction. Before he could bang his gavel again, someone shouted out, “Wait a minute, I have a question for Maiden Cheng!”

“You old thing! Are you trying to cause trouble? Do you want me to toss you out?” Old Man Ying was now back to his stone-cold face.

“Let him talk!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao. She looked straight at this martial king and asked, “What is the matter? Is this still about us being unfair?”

“Exactly. Evidently Maiden Cheng is already aware of our conundrum here. We were told that Maiden Cheng was in charge of this auction in it's entirety, so we have to ask you for an answer.”

This old man, even though he was a martial king, dare not underestimate Cheng Xiao Xiao and he was polite in the way he talked to her.

Cheng Xiao Xiao casted him a glance and said, “This was never ‘fair' to begin with. You should have been aware of the number of attendance today. Our supplies are limited, naturally not everybody will be able to go home with something. That is to be expected!”

“Alright, Maid Cheng, that may be true, but why can't you put aside a portion for us instead of wholesaling all of them? We weren't even given a chance to make a purchase. It's not like we can't afford it!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled at the question. She looked straight at the unaffiliated and said with a smile, “This is an auction. It's only natural that we wholesale our items. We are not running a retail store here. Not to mention that we won't have that much time to sell all of our items, so what is wrong with us auctioning our goods in bulk?”


“No buts!” Cheng Xiao Xiao cut him off, “I know what you want to say but you can only blame yourself for not coming prepared. With your age and experience, you should understand the different between a public sale and retail. All public sales sell in bulk. So if you want to attend and can't afford the bulk cost, you could have organized and formed a group prior to pool all your resources together to compete. Then you can divide up the goods according to each person's contribution. That way you will be able to have an opportunity to make a purchase.

“If you can't even think of that, how could you cry about us being not fair here? I don't think the problem lies with us being unfair; I think it's because you weren't smart enough to come up with a solution. If you have organized into a 100 or 200 people group, you might be able to win one or two bids. Afterall we have 6 shares of each item, and you won't have to leave empty-handed. Am I right?”


Listening to Cheng Xiao Xiao, all the unaffiliated felt ashamed. They understood that Cheng Xiao Xiao was telling the truth, they simply didn't have a solution to their problem before the start of the event.

Those in the priority section were surprised. All the disturbance from the unaffiliated was quelled by Cheng Xiao Xiao with a few words from Cheng Xiao Xiao. And she was able to make everybody speechless!

They must admit that this Maiden Cheng was not somebody one could overlook.

Zhu Xiangyu was staring straight at Cheng Xiao Xiao the entire time. The young woman who were able to handle the potentially dangerous situation with ease made him felt very unsettled.

Zhu Xiangyu was a prideful man. He was over 20 years old and way pa.s.sed the marriage age. He has yet to find a woman that he was interested in. He didn't want just a trophy wife or a wife of high standing. He didn't want someone who's all emotions and no intelligent. He wanted his partner in life to possess beauty, intelligence, and wittiness. He would not accept someone who's missing even one of those qualities and he has yet to meet anyone like that in this life time.
