Outside Su Residence.
A group of officials stood silently on the street.
Led by Xin Bai, behind him stood the deputy city lord, dianshi, and officials from various houses.
Standing neatly, the atmosphere was silent.
Passersby stopped and looked to the side, wondering why the City Lord had brought people to stand here.
That respectful look, as if waiting for the big man.
At this moment, someone from Su Residence came out.
In front was a young man in white.
Wearing a towering cloud python robe, his figure was as tall and straight as a pine, his face was handsome and unpretentious, and his eyes were as deep as the starry sky.
“This little official has come to greet Sir Duke.”
Xin Bai knelt down and kowtowed.
A group of officials kowtowed in unison, and said in unison, “We greet Sir Duke!”
The pedestrians were stunned and looked surprised.
“Could it be that this young man… Su Shi?”
“Su Shi is back!”
“This is big news, Su Shi is really back!!!”
Everyone in the Su family was also stunned.
Although they knew that their Eldest Young Master was of noble status, the scene in front of them still gave them a strong shock.
After all, the person in front of them was a City Lord!
Xin Bai, the City Lord of Nanli, the number one figure in the Southwest Region, the son of the Xin family in Weiyang Capital, plus a few other high-ranking officials who accompanied him.
The Netherworld Rakshasa Sect eroded the three regions in the south, but Nanli City never fell into the hands of the demonic path.
And this feat was inseparable from the efforts of its City Lord.
But now Xin Bai was leading the city officials, all kneeling respectfully before Young Master.
This made the Su family breathe faster.
Su Shi nodded, “Everyone, get up.”
The officials stood up.
Looking at the young man’s face, Xin Bai secretly sighed.
Unexpectedly, the little boy had grown into such an appearance now.
Xin Bai was the son of an aristocratic family. He knew what Su Shi had done in the imperial capital, and also understood who this “Sir Duke” really was.
It was a ruthless man who was notorious in the capital and sent Prince Chu Yin to prison!
He was also Her Majesty’s favorite minister.
With Nanli City as his fief, Su Shi could remove all of their official positions with one word!
“Uncle Xin, long time no see.”
Su Shi said.
Hearing this call, Xin Bai couldn’t help but be stunned for a moment, and hurriedly cupped his hands and said, “I dare not, Sir Duke is a high-ranking imperial official whose rank is far above me.”
Su Shi shook his head, “Uncle Xin doesn’t need to be cautious. I know how the Su family has survived in recent years.”
As the eldest son of the Su family, after joining the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect, the Su family was also labeled as demons, and were collectively ostracized by other aristocratic families.
But the City Lord’s residence did not let them fall.
Instead, he secretly gave support several times to help the Su family get through the hardships.
Xin Bai’s expression softened, and he said with a smile: “Sir Duke is too polite, this is indeed the duty of this lowly official.”
At the same time very happy.
Xin Ling had begged him to help the Su family many times before. Seeing his favorite daughter, Xin Bai couldn’t help but comply. But who would have thought Su Shi could accomplish such a feat?
“As expected of my daughter, she does have truly extraordinary eyesight!”
Xin Bai clapped his hands, “Come here, bring the things.”
Four black-clothed bodyguards came carrying two large boxes.
From the gap, you could faintly see a golden light.
Su Shi frowned: “Uncle Xin, you…”
Xin Bai said: “New Year’s Eve is coming up soon. All of this has been prepared by this lowly official for no other reason than to express our sincerity. Sir Duke must not refuse.”
Su Shi was about to speak when he suddenly caught a glimpse of green.
Looking closer, he saw a young girl dressed in green standing in the center of the crowd, looking at him intently.
Su Shi was stunned.
Everyone followed his line of sight.
Chen Qingluan held back the chaotic emotions and said, “I greet Sir Duke.”
As soon as the words fell, a gust of wind came out of thin air, instantly involving her into a strong embrace.
Su Shi looked at her, “Qingluan, why are you here?”
Chen Qingluan blushed and whispered: “You, let go of me first, so many people are watching.”
“I won’t let you go.”
Su Shi refused.
After all, their relationship was not a secret, sooner or later it would be found out.
Chen Qingluan was so shy that she could barely lift her head.
Everyone stared blankly at this scene.
Xin Bai’s expression stiffened.
He thought Miss Chen and Su Shi were friends, but he didn’t expect such a relationship!
Mo Yulan and Su Renzong looked at each other.
Yu Ren’er just came, why did another girl show up?
Yu Ren’er was also a little confused.
Isn’t Su Shi’s girlfriend, Chief Zhan?
Since when did Miss Chen also…
Xin Ling stood in the distance, her slender hands clenching her skirt quietly.
“Judging from Miss Chen’s reaction, it seems like they really have that kind of relationship!”
Everyone’s thoughts were different, and the atmosphere was eerily quiet. . . .
After a while, Mo Yulan’s faint voice sounded, “Shi’er, who else is this girl? Why don’t you introduce her to me?”
Chen Qingluan hurriedly broke away from her embrace and said, “You should be Su Shi’s mother, right? My name is Chen Qingluan, and I came here from Weiyang Capital on a special trip.”
Su Renzong pondered slightly.
Her name sounded somewhat familiar.
Suddenly thinking of something, she whispered: “Are you Chen Qingluan of the Demon Extermination Division? The daughter of Grand Master Chen Wangchuan?
Chen Qingluan nodded, “My father is indeed Chen Wangchuan.”
Su Renzong gulped.
It’s really her!
This is a top talent who is as famous as Zhan Qingchen!
Mo Yulan rubbed her eyebrows, “Boy, I asked you to find a daughter-in-law, but I didn’t ask you to find two at once!”
Chen Qingluan finally saw Yu Ren’er.
The two of them looked at each other.
“You, aren’t you the fox from Huangyuan City… umm!”
Before she could finish speaking, her mouth closed.
Su Shi hugged her, cleared his throat and said, “Okay, don’t stand here, let’s go into the room and talk.”
“Uncle Xin, will you come in and sit down too?”
“Cough, I still have official business in my house, so I won’t be troublesome.”
Xon Bai is not a fool.
This situation was obviously wrong, and if he got into this muddy water, he couldn’t escape easily.
“Sir Duke, this lowly official will leave first, and will come to visit another day.”
It was said to take people away.
But Xin Ling stood there without moving.
“Come on, Ling’er, what are you doing?”
Xin Bai said in a low voice.
Xin Ling covered her ears and said, “Su Shi, you said you wanted to treat me to a drink, does this still apply?”
Su Shi nodded and said, “Of course it still applies. “
Xin Ling bit her lip, “Then I want to drink now.”
Xin Bai covered his forehead.
This is bad!
Out of town.
The void shattered, and a white-robed woman burst out.
Looking at the huge Nanli City in front of her.
The divine consciousness instantly covered the city, but the image she saw left the woman stunned.
“He really came back?!”
