After sending the three young ones to play outside, she followed her mom into her dad’s residence. She noticed he wasn’t sleep and greeted him.
Cheng Bi Yuan nodded slightly. His look indifferently, he was unaffected.
“Dad, what did the doctor said about your injury?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was familiar with herbs but she didn’t know how to diagnose a patient.
“Hard to say, let’s have some herbs first and see where it goes.” Cheng Bi Yuan gave her a look, then changed the subject and asked, “What happened when you two went into town, tell me.”
They had company earlier so Cheng Bi Yuan has not yet found out what had happened, but he figured they’d have to make several trips to sell chickens and rabbits before they could afford a doctor making a house call. He was surprised they came back with one.
Mrs. Cheng didn’t hide anything and told him about the encounter with Ning’s steward. Cheng Bi Yuan was quiet after hearing the incident. After a while, he asked his daughter, “Xiao Xiao, the vegetables and animals that were raised and grown in the dimension, how are they different than the ones on the outside when you eat them?”
How are they different?
Cheng Xiao Xiao had never really thought about that. Before she could answer, Mrs. Cheng replied, “I felt that the vegetables and meats from the dimension are more tender, and after you ate them, you feel refreshed and all the weariness are gone!”
“…….” Cheng Xiao Xiao was surprised, but what Mrs. Cheng said was true.
Cheng Bi Yuan looked at her, and said with a deep voice, “The food from the dimension is good for health. It’s like they are spiritual!”
“Spiritual?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was not sure what to make of that.
Mrs. Cheng’s look paled a little. She looked at her husband and knew that what he said was true. She looked down and did not speak again.
“Mom, dad, can you tell me what do you mean by ‘spiritual’?” Cheng Xiao Xiao broke the silence inside the house. She was full of curiosity. She wanted to know if what her dad said about “spiritual” was the same as what she had read about in novels.
“Xiao Xiao, this is not something that you need to concern yourself with. Nothing good will come out of it. Why don’t you go look for Zheng Yuan and the lot. Tell them to come back for their reading lesson!” Cheng Bi Yuan tried to get rid of his curious daughter.
Obviously, he wasn’t ready to tell her the truth. But seeing the concerned look on her parents, she knew she couldn’t press the issue, so she turned and left.
The Cheng House had regained it’s peacefulness. At the same time, guests are feasting at the Ning House. A few elders at a table were in good spirits, glowing, and boisterous, drawing attention from guests at a nearby table.
The elders were chatting and eating at the same time. Whenever he got excited he would raise his glass and took a few large gulps. An elder with white beard downed his glass of wine and shoved a piece of meat into his mouth. After some chewing, he had an odd look, then he picked up another slice of meat .
His odd behavior drew attention from a few other. An elder in a blue outfit asked, “Old man Lam, what’s the matter with you? You acted like you haven’t eaten in months!”
Old man Lam gave him a stare, then he chewed up all the meat and bones in his mouth and swallowed them all before asked the host next to him, “Hey, Old Ning, did you guys raise these fouls yourself or did you buy them from the market?”
