Mrs. Cheng couldn't help but to smile at the two chicken running around the yard with the rope dragging behind them, "These two chickens will make perfect nutrients for your dad."
She then looked at the very hopeful faces of the kids, continued to smile and explained, "He gtes the chicken broth, you guys can eat the meat!"
"Yay! Chicken meat tonight!"
"Mom! I want the thigh!"
The two youngest Zheng Bin and Lan Lan broke out into bright smiles and clapped their hands joyfully.
Mrs. Cheng laughed. Cheng Xiao Xiao laughed. Cheng Zheng Yuan also laughed.
The small farm house was filled with laughter.
After that, the whole family worked together -- kill the chickens, start the fire -- the two youngest ones each got half a white radish to munch on.
The four siblings sat around the table, all eyes starting at the only bowl of meat, everybody was drooling over it but nobody touched their chopsticks.
Cheng Xiao Xiao turned around to the where the voice came from. It was Mrs. Cheng walking toward her, "Xiao Xiao, your dad wants to talk to you. Go!"
"Okay...." Cheng Xiao Xiao was hesitated for a little bit, but quickly got up and walked toward the house that she has never been in before.
She has a faint idea why dad wanted to talk to her.
She lifted the curtain and entered his house. Met with her was a pair of eyes with deep look, from the man lying on the bed. He was around 36, 37 years old. His face was a little on the skinny side; his pointy chin thick and sexy. His sharp brows pointed slightly upward at the end. He exuded an authoritative presence.
This dad could not be a commoner.
That was the first thought in Cheng Xiao Xiao's head. She didn't let that show on her face. Rather, she walked out and gently said, "Dad, you are looking for me?"
"Xiao Xiao, you caught two chickens in a cave today? And found some edible plants?" Cheng Bi Yuan's ink-black eyes were filled with judgement.
He knew his own daughter. Back then she was a smart, mild temperament, quiet child. She always took care of her younger brothers and sisters quietly. She had always been an obedient child.
Two weeks ago.....
She sacrificed herself and blocked a blow for him and got injured. A few days ago she lost consciousness again only to wake up saying that she had lost her memories. What surprised him the most was the weak daughter was able to catch chickens in the mountain and brought them hoe.
Of course he'd feel suspicious.
But, it was indeed his daughter standing in front of him. There was no way that him and his wife would be wrong about that. Nobody could find another person that looked identical to his daughter.
"Yes, dad. Xiao Xiao inadvertently entered into a cave and saw a clutch of pheasants. It was difficult but I was able to catch two of them. They will provide some nutrients for you."
She looked down a little bit. She had responded matter-of-factly, but her heart was pounding.
She knew very well that he was not someone you can take lightly, but she couldn't possibly tell him the truth either. So she had to make up some sort of stories.
