TWQQF ch 206 - Moving Into The New Resident; Bending The Will of Heaven (9)

“Oh, dad, we have quite a few courtyards now and the area is quite expanse. We will need more manpower to help maintain this new place of ours. Can you send a letter to the officials of Qing’an Province and have them send some good help over? Preferably they have already been trained. We don’t have the time to hand hold each of the after their arrival!”

“Xiao Xiao, are you sure about that?” asked Cheng Biyuan, baffled. He didn’t expect her daughter to have asks from the officials.

“Sure! Sure!” smiled Cheng Xiao Xiao. She would not have said that in the past. But since the dimension has the ability to make others recognize her as their mistress, she was confident that even spies for others would be converted.

Cheng Biyuan was a bit surprised at his daughter’s words, but he has a lot of faith in her so he nodded and said, “If Xiao Xiao think that’s acceptable, let’s do it. I will send the officials a letter first thing tomorrow and have them send us some helps. By the way, how many do you want them to send?”

“Well, that you will have to ask mom!” Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t well verse with something like that. After all, she never had experience managing a large family like this.

Mrs. Cheng gave it some serious thoughts and said, “Our family are not big, but we have a lot of guests. We will need a lot of headcount. I think at least a hundred!”

“A hundred?” frowned Cheng Biyuan, “If we are going to recruit people, let’s get a few more all at the same time so we won’t have to worry about it again any time soon. I am thinking sixty maids and sixty male servants. That should be enough!”

“Okay, that works too!” Mrs. Cheng agreed without further comments.

With that one statement, the Cheng’s would add a hundred head counts shortly.

Cheng Xiao Xiao felt a little uncomfortable. Could that be a bit overboard?

What she didn’t know was that a hundred or so servants for a family with a noble title was not a lot. A normal large family could easily have several hundreds of servants.

Even though she felt that the number of headcounts was a little bit overboard, but she did not disagree with her parent’s decision. Plus she was aware that her family is getting bigger, and they would need more help around.

“Dad, mom, I plan on starting a herbal field. It will be dedicated specifically for medicinal herbs!”

In truth, she had already stockpiled quite a bit of precious medicinal herbs in the dimension. The whole idea of having a medicinal herb field was so she could sell them. Otherwise her inventory would continue to increase and it’d be difficult for her to exchange them for money.

Cheng Biyuan didn’t know that his daughter’s dimension had already stockpiled a whole lot of medicinal herbs. Baffled, he asked, “Xiao Xiao, you want to grow medicinal herbs now? Is that really necessary? We are in no shortage of money right now.”

“Dad, I understand that we have no shortage of money. Don’t worry, I will take care of the medicinal herb field myself!” Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t want to elaborate too much about it; after all, there are many servants living with them now.

Cheng Biyuan frowned again, but before he could say anything else, Mrs. Cheng chimed in with uncertainty, “Xiao Xiao, that will be a lot of work. We are not worry about money or food now. There’s no need for a girl to do all that. Even if you want to grow medicinal herbs, why don’t you wait for us to recruit some people who has experiencing growing them to help you out?”

“Mom, dad, don’t worry. I will make any necessary arrangements!” Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled, her look determined.

Cheng Biyuan and his wife exchanged a look and had no choice but to nod.

That night, Cheng Xiao Xiao wenti into the dimension after she had retired to her room.

As soon as she had entered the dimension, she noticed the difference right away.
