The words from the butler brought hope to everyone. All they needto do is to find the mother and daughter, and they’d find out the source of thespiritual animals!
Old man Ning observed everyone’s reaction and nodded lightly, thensaid, “Okay, go make some arrangements. If you find the mother and daughter,remember to be polite and invite them back here.”
While folks at Ning House started to arrange help in locating Mrs.Cheng and Cheng Xiao Xiao, they had no idea that they had already attractedattention to themselves.
Inside the dimension, Cheng Xiao Xiao just harvested a crop ofChinese cabbage. The dimension has already reached Lv 3. Looking at the warehousefull of white radishes, cabbages, and garlics, Cheng Xiao Xiao was a littletroubled. Even though the crops wouldn’t go bad in the warehouse, but she couldn’tkeep growing the same crops. She would need to grow something different.
Clicking on the screen, Cheng Xiao Xiao eyed the barley, rice, andcorn. The Cheng House was poor, so everyday they have been eating clear porridgeor corn noodles. For someone who had grew up eating rice, she definitely leanedtoward growing rice.
After some more thinking, she clicked on rice and seeded all 10 fieldsplus the 5 additional ones that came with the leveling up. She believed she wouldbe able to harvest them the next day.
The idea of eating fresh cooked rice the next day made her laughedhappily.
Walking outside the cottage, she sat next to the pond. Looking atthe almost fully-grown fish, and thinking about fish soup at night, her smilebrightened even more.
Slowly, her smile reduced. What about dad’s injury?
She sat next to the pond and fell into deep thought.
“Regardless, let me level up the dimension some more. Not onlywill there be more fields to plough, maybe there will be other surprises aswell!”
After making up her mind, she returned from the dimension.Noticing that it was almost dark outside, she went to help her mother preparedinner.
That night, the family had delectable fish soup and savory friedfish. All the young ones were excited and didn’t even ask where the fish came from.
Inside the house, Cheng Bi Yuan had a look of astonishment aftertaking a sip of the fish soup. Then the astonishment turned into concern.Looking at his wife, he asked, “Wife, have you had any of the fish soup?”
“Yes, I have. Are you trying to say that the fish soup isspiritual?” Mrs. Cheng sighed faintly.
Mr. Cheng didn’t say more, just continued to drink the fish soupquietly.
Mrs. Cheng said softly to herself, “I wonder whether this is a blessingor trouble.”
“Blessing!” Said Cheng Bi Yuan with a determined look, “Even if it’trouble, we will have to turn it around and make it a blessing. If God want ourbranch to prosper, no one will be able to bully us anymore!”
“Ye…..” Mrs. Chenglooked at him, worried.
“Yuqin, don’t worry. It’s okay, Xiao Xiao is not the same asbefore, but that’s not a bad thing!” Cheng Bi Yuan reassured her, thencontinued, “You will need to pay more attention to watching over Zheng Yuan andZheng Bin, don’t let them fall behind on their study or their martial arttraining.”
“Yes, ye!” Replied Mrs.Cheng tenderly.
“Let’s hold off on selling our chickens and rabbits, we haveenough supplies to tie us over for a while anyway.” In Cheng Bi Yuan’s mind, hedid not want his wife and daughter going to sell these things.
Mrs. Cheng nodded, “Xiao Xiao had just told me that she is growingrice in the dimension and should be able to harvest tomorrow. We will have bothvegetables and rice so we won’t need to sell anything at the market, but….”
Painfully she looked at him, “Ye,we will need more medicines for you!”
“No rush, I think the herbs that Xiao Xiao had been bring home arequite good!”
