Cheng Xiao Xiao found a cave in a more secluded valley. The cave was dark and mysterious looking. She wanted to go further in to investigate but stopped and thought about it for a minute. She then produced a few chickens, rabbits, and white radish and put them inside the cave.
Once she had everything set up, she took the same path back. By the time she met up with her two brothers, they had already collected an ample amount of firewood. She didn't have time rest, she shouted out to them, "Zheng Yuan! Zheng Bin!"
"Big sister! You are back!"
"Eh, big sister, what's that in your hand? And two chicken?"
Cheng Xiao Xiao had secretly took out two chicken and ten white radish from the dimension. The two brother curiously looked at the white radishes in her hand. She smiled, "Zheng Yuan, Zheng Bin, I was looking for herbs when I came across a cave. That's when I discovered the chickens and these!"
"There's chickens in a cave? Big brother, let's go get the chickens!" Little Zheng Bin was very excited.
Why collect firewood when there were chickens to be caught? They haven't had meat in a long time!
Zheng Yuan was quite tempted himself, but he didn't say anything right away. He looked at his big sister.
Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled and shook her head, "I don't think that will do us any good. It look me a lot of effort to catch these two. The rest had all ran away."
The two brothers were disappointed. Zheng Yuan looked at the white radishes in Cheng Xiao Xiao's arm and asked, "Big sister, what are these? Are they tasty?"
"Of course they are tasty! I saw the chickens pecking at them, so I tried one myself. I am still fine, ain't I?" She smiled and explained while handing one over to them, "Here, why don't you guys clean one up and try!"
"I am starving!"
The two of them were growing boys, a bowl of watery porridge and a corn bun wasn't enough food for them. Not to mention that half a day had gone by, naturally they were starving.
By the younger brothers finished eating the white radishes, Cheng Xiao Xiao had already tied up the fire wood that they have collected, divided into two. She and the older of the two brother each took one of them. The younger of the two brothers lugged the now tied-up chicken and white radishes over his skinny shoulder.
The three of them returned in joy.
"Mom! Mom! Big sister caught pheasants! Mom----" The younger brother shouted happily as he ran toward the house, bouncing. He reached the door at no time.
Cheng Xiao Xiao, trailing behind the two brothers, smiled quietly.
"OMG! It's really pheasants!"
The just entered the yard when she heard mom's voice in disbelief. She could now see her pleasantly surprised expression.
Little Zheng Bin proudly lifted his head, "Mom! Not only did big sister caught these pheasants, these stuff are very tasty too! We've ate already!"
"What is it? I have never seen these before?" Mrs. Cheng took over the white radish, baffled.
Cheng Xiao Xiao put down the fire woods, rubbed her soar hands, walked over and said, "Mom, this thing is delicious. We don't know what they are called either."
"What? How can you eat it then? What if you get sick?"
"Don't worry, mom. Look, we are fine, really!" Looking at the freaked out Mrs. Cheng,
Cheng Xiao Xiao had to explain what she "saw" in the cave all over again.
