Mrs. Cheng’s look made Cheng Xiao Xiao uncomfortable. She couldn’t help but to ask, “Mom, something wrong? Is there something you want to tell me?”
“Xiao Xiao….” Mrs. Cheng’s lips quivered. She was about to say something but stopped. With quiet sadness, she sighed, “No, nothing. Bring the porridge out and let’s have breakfast!”
“Mom, are you worried that people will gossip when they see our additions?” Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t think of anything else that could be on her mother’s mind.
Mrs. Cheng’s arm that was reaching out to the buns stopped in midair. She shook her head slightly, “No, I am not worry about that. Others didn’t see how the things were produced, there’s not much they could say about that. I worried about you. The fact that you can do something like that, will it have negative impact on you!”
“Mom, don’t worry! Xiao Xiao will be fine!” Cheng Xiao Xiao was touched and tried to comfort her mother.
Perhaps she had read too many fantasy novels. It had never occurred to her that having a dimension will negatively impact her health. She had always thought of it as a benefit to a transmigrator and never gave it too much thought.
Mrs. Cheng still has a serious look on her. She sighed lightly and patted her daughter’s hand, “Aye, Xiao Xiao, you don’t get it. People can be dangerous. Just remember, don’t share your secret with anyone else, including your sibling. Otherwise, if even a bit of this got leaked, we will be in grave danger!”
“Mom, I understand. I won’t blab about it.” Cheng Xiao Xiao is not a naïve little girl. She understood that having this kind of ability could possibly bring big trouble.
“God had given us blessings. Mom doesn’t want this to bring us trouble. Luckily you have grown up, so I am less worried. You have done so much for this family!”
“Mom, please don’t feel that way. We are a family!” Cheng Xiao Xiao doesn’t like her mother thinking that, that’s not family-like. Suddenly she recalled something she had thought about last night and she frowned.
“What’s the matter, Xiao Xiao?”
“Mom, why don’t you bring a chicken to the Patriarch Liu in a bit and asked him to sign over the fields to us? So we can avoid any conflicts in the future?”
“You mean….” Mrs. Cheng didn’t catch on right away to what Cheng Xiao Xiao was trying to tell her.
Cheng Xiao Xiao explained, “Mom, even though we have lived here for the last few years, but the land still belongs to Willow Village. Now that we are farming and raising livestock, when our livelihood became better and better, if the villagers of Willow Village ever became envious and want the land back, we will have no rights to these lands without any sort of agreement with Patriarch Liu.
“Ugh, I don’t think so. We have been living here for quite a few years, why would any one fight over this with us?” In Mrs. Cheng’s mind, this was bare land cultivated by her husband, of course it belonged to them. Why would anyone fight over that with them?
Reading her mother’s mind, Cheng Xiao Xiao added, “Mom, people have greed. Maybe not everyone, but there are those out there. On top of that, as we become better and better off, there will be those who wants to cause trouble. I think we should plan and prepare for those situations in advance. Otherwise we will be helpless when that happens.
“Yes, Xiao Xiao you are right!” Mrs. Cheng went silent for a bit, she’s not a stupid woman. She was aware of the greed and heartlessness of others. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be at this place to begin with.

Well not so much. Mom = concern about Greed by abuse while MC = concern about Greed by Steal.Delete
The mindset of the mom didn't register about this due to lack of foresight since she thought that this is their land and no one been here therefor this is theirs and everyone knows and acknowledged that.
