TWQQF ch 379 - The Misunderstanding was Resolved; The Visit of the Parents (4)

“I apologize, Uncle Zhou. It was my fault; I didn’t think it through clearly. How much money would you say we need for the time being?” Cheng Xiao Xiao looked embarrassed. The dimension was a bottomless pit, and it had ate the entire gain from the previous trade.

Zhou Jinjiang thought about it for a moment and said, “Between our house and the construction of a new Count Mansion, at least over one million taels.”

A million!

That’s astronomical for a regular family, but for a prominent family, that’s just the expenditure of a month or two.

“Little Yuteng, how much cash money do we have in the dimension now?” asked Cheng Xiao Xiao telepathically.

“Young Mistress, over 3 million, will be 4 million soon!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao felt much better upon hearing that. She smiled and said, “Uncle Zhou, don’t worry about cash money, I have you covered!”

Zhou Jinjiang’s eyes widened and asked excitedly, “Really? You are not kidding me?”

“Of course. I can even give it to you right now, but I don’t want you to faint from seeing the large sum of money. HA HA HA!”

“Uncle Zhou, if Xiao Xiao said we have it, then we have it. You don’t have to worry!” Mo Xuanzun would never doubt Cheng Xiao Xiao’s words.

Old Man Ying nodded as well. He felt that this would not be an issue for his Young Mistress as well.

Cheng Biyuan had an inkling and the most clueless would be the Elder and Zhou Jinjiang; they have yet to understand Cheng Xiao Xiao’s pocket hand so they would be a little worry about the predicament that the Cheng’s are in currently.

“Dad, if we have a large sum of gold coins flowing into Qing’an, will that cause any negative impact?” Cheng Xiao Xiao knew that the gold in the dimension were in coin form, unless chunks of silver and gold being used in the outside world.

After hearing that, Cheng Biyuan and Zhou Jinjiang exchanged a look. Surprised, they couldn’t help but ask, “Xiao Xiao, you mean..?”

“Dad, if we come out with our own gold coin, do you think the emperor would be alright with that?” Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at them and asked softly.

Cheng Biyuan did not respond, but turned and looked at Zhou Jinjiang, consulting him wordlessly.

Zhou Jinjiang had served the emperor up close and personal previously, he would be the best person to ask about this. Zhou Jinjiang thought about it for a minute and said, “No problem, Qing’an Province is now the Lord’s personal property. No matter what decision he makes, it wouldn’t have too much of an impact. Worst case scenario will be others copying us is all.”

“That’s good to know!” Cheng Xiao Xiao was no expert in political management nor was she interested in it. She said to Zhou Jinjiang, “Uncle Zhou, I will give you 2 million in gold coins in a little bit, you can use them as you see fit!”

“What? Two million?!”

Zhou Jinjiang’s eyes were about to fall out; even the ones next to him was stunned. They had not expect the dimension to have so much gold.

SSSSSSSS—

Zhou Jinjiang gasped after he recovered. After he had calmed down some, he asked with a quivering voice, “Xiao Xiao, can you show me what the gold coins look like?”

“Sure!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao found their reaction amusing. With one wave of her hand, she immediately produced a handful of gold coins sparkling in front of their eyes.

They were the size of a thumb, about 1 centimeter in thickness, weight that of half a tael. Seeing these kind of gold coins for the first time, each of them picked one up to look at them more closely.

With their experience, of course they could tell that these were real gold. Zhou Jinjiang couldn’t help but smiled bitterly, “Xiao Xiao, have you found a gold mine that we didn’t know about? This is too incredible.”
