Looking at the docile snake, Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled warmly. She never would have expected such power from the dimension. This was yet another pleasant surprise.
“Hey little snake, can you understand what I am saying? Nod if you can.” Said Cheng Xiao Xiao curiously to the snake.
“Hiss….” Said the banded krait and, surprisingly enough, it then nodded at Cheng Xiao Xiao.
“This is awesome! From now on, I am going to call you Snakey. Snakey will be your name!”
Cheng Xiao Xiao was ecstatic, her eyes beamed. She laughed, “If I continue to collect strong animals into the dimension, I am going to turn into a summoner that I’ve read in novels before!”
Summoner! That would be incredible!
Stumbling onto something so mysterious, the formerly ignorant Cheng Xiao Xiao felt like she was living in a dream.
After playing with Snakey for a while, Cheng Xiao Xiao’s original excitement finally started to subside. She thought it was about time to go home.
Exiting the dimension, Cheng Xiao Xiao dare not dilly dally around. She needed to head home right away, before it got dark.
She rushed down the mountain and headed straight toward home.
“Big sister, where had you been? What took you so long to come home?” Zheng Yuan came out and asked soon as she arrived at the front door.
Cheng Xiao Xiao was still in a good mood, she smiled at him, “I went out for a short walk. What’s up? You looking for me?”
“No, nothing. Big sister, mom said we are going to the market day after tomorrow, right?”
Looking at the happy Zheng Yuan, Chen Xiao Xiao walked in front of him and smiled, “Mom and I are going to the market. You have to stay behind to take care of dad, Zheng Big, and Lan Lan.”
“No, no, big sister. The two of us go, let mom stay at home. I haven’t been to the market in forever!” Cheng Zheng Yuan objected right away. He didn’t want to miss the opportunity to go to the market.
Cheng Xiao Xiao shook her head lightly. She doubted their parents will let the two of them go by themselves. Gently she said, “Mom won’t agree to that.”
“Big sister, if you said its okay, so would mom!”
“Impossible, dad would object to that even more!”
“Big sister, let mom stay behind. Let me go with you!”
While the two of them were bickering, Zheng Bin and Lan Lan ran out from the kitchen. Little Lan Lan ran over and hugged Cheng Xiao Xiao. Lifting her small head, she said, “Big sister, Lan Lan wants to go too. Lan Lan can sell rabbits too!”
“Big sister, I have never been to the market. Let big bother and I go with you. We are both grown ups!”
“Not possible!” Zheng Yan shouted at his younger siblings before Cheng Xiao Xiao could respond, “You two are too young. It takes four hours to get to the market! You two will only be burden to us!”
“Big brother, big sister hadn’t said anything yet. Don’t you worry, I can walk on my own two feet!”
“Lan Lan wants to go too! Lan Lan wants to go too!”
Amidst all the bickering among the three of them, Cheng Xiao Xiao decided to just keep her mouth shut and let them be. They wouldn’t be the ones making that decision anyway.
Time flew passed!
On the third day at day break, Cheng Xiao Xiao was woken up by her mother in her sleep. She gestured her to be quiet. Then looking at the soundly asleep siblings, she smiled.
It’s time to go to the market.
