Chapter 254 – Promises made in the past, the bond between Su Shi and Xin Ling

News of Su Shi’s return quickly spread throughout the Southwest Region.

Not only Nanli City, but the City Lords and noble families from other cities, even the governors could not sit idly by.

After all, he was the lord of the entire Southwest Region!

Taking advantage of the New Year Festival, they came to Nanli City with gifts.

But without exception, they were all rejected by the Su family.

Su Shi also never appeared again.

Even Shenxiu and Cao Jie were rejected.

Not only that, but they were also ordered to leave immediately.

It’s not that Su Shi was being arrogant or anything. But now that the Holy Empress was in his house, if people from the demonic path came to visit, wouldn’t it be the same as seeking death?

Listen to the Moon Tower.

The tavern is full of music.

This is the best tavern in Nanli City, and most of the customers here are rich and famous.

At this moment, three people were gathering and chatting.

“Did you really see Sir Duke?”

“Yes, Sir Duke is even more handsome than rumoured, and his aura is like the sun, making people dare not look directly.”

“I didn’t expect the Su family to really arise!”

“At the time when Su Shi went to the demonic path, I don’t know how many noble families made fun of the Su family.”

“City Lord does have a good vision.”

“Yes, apart from the people from the City Lord’s residence, Sir Duke hasn’t received a single guest, even the governor is made to frown.”

At this moment, a fat man said mysteriously: “Do you know that the reason why the Su family closed the gates of their house and did not receive guests was because they chose a daughter-in-law?”

“Is this rumour real or fake?”

“Sir Duke is only in his early twenties right? Isn’t that too hasty?”

The surrounding people suddenly became interested and gathered around them one after another.

“How can it be fake?”

The fat man shook his head and said: “I have a good brother, who is a servant at Su Residence. He said that Sir Duke’s lovers cannot be counted on one hand, and they are discussing who should be the main wife!”

“In addition, the higher the cultivation realm, the more difficult it is to give birth to offspring.”

“With Sir Duke’s talent, his growth rate is extremely fast, so he naturally has to leave offspring first.”

Everyone nodded.

That made sense.

“But who is worthy of Sir Duke status?”

Someone asked.

The fat man shook his head, “I don’t know about the others, but there’s a name you already know.”

“Who?”

“Could she be from Nanli?”

“I don’t care, tell me quickly.”

Under everyone’s urging, the fat man cleared his throat and whispered: “Who else but the City Lord’s daughter?”

“You mean Xin Ling?”

“Hey, it seems possible!”

When Su Shi fell into the demonic path, all the noble families avoided the Su family, only Xin Ling was still very close to them.

Including the many problems faced later, the City Lord’s Residence helped solve them.

“It seems that Xin Ling is still very clever.”

“This is equivalent to buying shares in a business. If people bet correctly, they will naturally go to the moon.”

“In Xin Ling’s capacity, being Sir Duke’s main wife seems difficult, but there is nothing to lose by being a concubine.”

“Enough, it’s Sir Duke!”

“Sssh, be quiet”

Room on the second floor.

Xin Ling’s pretty face turned red as she gritted her teeth and said, “Dare to gossip about me when I’m around, let’s see how I teach them a lesson!”

She was about to get up and walk over to them.

Su Shi stopped her, “It’s just gossip. It doesn’t take long to disappear with the wind, but when you appear, it will be enough to confirm what they said.”

Xin Ling felt embarrassed and angry.

Who buys shares in a business, who becomes a concubine, it’s really getting outrageous!

Su Shi’s mind moved slightly.

The wine jars downstairs shattered, all the dishes and food floating into the air. Immediately afterwards, as if gripped by a huge invisible hand, they were thrown out directly from the door of the tavern.

A cold voice rang in everyone’s ears:

“Get lost!”

Everyone shuddered, their faces instantly turned pale, and they ran away.

Su Shi raised his glass and said, “It’s quiet now, we can drink comfortably.”

“Cheers!”

The two glasses clinked and they drank everything at once.

Xin Ling’s face was still flushed, “Su Shi, don’t listen to their nonsense, I…”

“I know.”

Su Shi smiled and said, “Miss Xin is not an investor, she just wants to help the Su family.”

Xin Ling picked up the wine glass and covered her embarrassed expression.

It’s not really simple…

But after going through the “main wife selection” incident last time, she was really embarrassed to say anything else.

“By the way, when will Uncle go to Weiyang Capital for the proposal?”

Xin Ling asked unintentionally.

That Miss Huang’s aura was too strong.

So much so that she thought that the other party must be the main wife.

Su Shi shook his head, “These are just pleasantries, we are cultivators, so there is no need to follow formalities.”

She was the Holy Empress, his father couldn’t really go to the palace for a proposal, right?

Feng Chaoge just didn’t want him to marry someone else.

He didn’t care about the so-called ceremony.

Yet now he felt ashamed of the Chen family.

After all, he had promised Chen Wangchuan that he would give the wedding tradition Three Letters and Six Etiquettes.

“There’s no way to explain that.”

“How could I possibly explain that Her Majesty does not allow me to take a wife?”

Su Shi felt uneasy in his heart.

Xin Ling visibly breathed a sigh of relief, “Right, cultivators really don’t need to get hung up on bureaucracy.”

“Cheers.”

“Cheers!”

The two exchanged cups.

Although they had not seen each other for a long time, they were no strangers to each other.

Looking at the beautiful girl in front of him, Su Shi’s eyes were somewhat blank.

He really wasn’t too impressed with Xin Ling.

He only remembered that when he first crossed over, there was a little girl who became his orbiter.

Because he had the soul of an adult inside his body, and his behaviour was very different from other naive children, the little girl admired him very much.

But the time the two actually got along was very short.

After the plot began, he immediately followed Yun Qiluo to the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect.

Since then, they were never seen again.

Unexpectedly, the other party always remembered this friendship and helped the Su family through difficulties several times.

“Miss Xin, I have a question I want to ask you.” said Su Shi.

Xin Ling nodded, “Say it.”

Su Shi squeezed her chin and said, “You once said I said something to you when we were young… What did I say back then?”

Xin Ling’s eyes were slightly uncertain, “Forget it if you don’t remember, I just mentioned it casually.”

Su Shi urged, “But I’m very curious.”

Xin Ling hesitated.

Facing Su Shi’s inquisitive gaze, she sighed, put down her glass, and said softly, “When you suddenly said you were leaving, you said goodbye first to me.”

“I asked when you would come back, and you said probably never.”

If we really meet again, then my mission has failed, that’s what you said.”

“You said if you really return, you will take me to a remote place to live in seclusion, spending the rest of our lives together until old and dead.”

“It is because of your words that I have endured for so long. “

Xin Ling looked at Su Shi, her eyes seemingly glazed over, ”I remember every word clearly, but why did you forget everything.”
