And it was a peculiar kind of beauty – clean, neat, esthetically pleasing. They began to wonder whether their Miss was a fairy. How was it that she seemed to be able to do anything and everything?
So, the gardeners started to learn by observing her handy work. All the small trees outside became the poor subjects of their practice and all were horribly deformed.
Cheng Xiao Xiao called out when she saw the one walked out of her mother’s room with her maids.
Cheng Huihui, who was about to return to her own quarters looked up and saw Cheng Xiao Xiao walking toward her and smiled, “Xiao Xiao, you must be here to visit sister-in-law Yuqin!”
“I am, indeed. What have Aunty Huihui been up to lately? I haven’t been seeing you a lot lately.” Cheng Xiao Xiao was quite fond of this aunty; she liked that she was a strong woman.
“Nothing much. My dad has been cultivating behind closed doors day and night. Someone needed to watch over Lihui, so that’s what I have been doing!” explained Cheng Huihui.
Cultivating behind closed doors!
Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned a little. She had that the elder had been cultivating behind closed doors quite frequently lately. She was worried that his trying to rush things would make breaking through even more difficult.
It looked like he wouldn’t relax at all until he had some improvement.
Once her mind was made up, she comforted the one in front of her, “Aunty Huihui, don’t worry. I think Elder is just stuck at a bottleneck and trying to have a breakthrough!”
“I hope so!” Cheng Huihui smiled lightly. She had an idea what her father wanted to accomplish.
“How’s little Lihui? Is he settling in alright?”
The three of them had been with the Cheng’s for a couple of weeks now. With the exception of the first few days, Cheng Xiao Xiao had not gone over to bother them again recently.
“He is settling in alright…”
Cheng Xiao Xiao had a bitter look on her and, with sorrow, she said, “He’s still not used to my brother and sister-in-law being gone. He wakes up crying every night asking for them. That is….”
“….” Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t sure what to say after hearing that. After all, it would take time to cover from a traumatic event like this.
“Luckily he was still young. Hopefully he would be able to be back to normal quickly!”
“He will, Aunty Huihui. You should lit some incense in little Lihui’s room at night. It will be good for keeping away mosquitos and also has a calming effect. That way he will be able to sleep better at night.”
“Okay, Xiao Xiao, I understand. Thank you!”
“Don’t be a stranger, Aunty Huihui!”
“Alright, Xiao Xiao, I am going to go check on Lihui. He had been clingy lately, I don’t want to leave him with the servants for too long!”
“Okay, you go take care of your matters!”
After seeing Cheng Huihui off, Cheng Xiao Xiao quickly entered into the dimension.
As soon as she appeared, little Yuteng knew of the reason of her visit, “Young Mistress, did you come here because you are concerned about the Elder?”
Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned and said, “You are right. We need to help him out. At this rate I am afraid things will backfire at him!”
“Don’t worry, Young Mistress, Elder will be fine. Right now, he is mid-level martial spiritualist and very close to apex martial spiritualist. If you want to help him breakthrough to martial king, all we need is just some mystical water and snow ginseng.”
“Okay, why don’t you have those prepared. Let’s help him breakthrough tonight so his family can stop worrying about him!”
“Not a problem!”
Taking care of something like this was but a piece of cake for little Yuteng.
That night, Cheng Xiao Xiao quietly appeared behind Elder’s closed doors and, under his surprised gaze, produced two items in front of him.
“Xiao Xiao, thank you. Thank you so much….” Accepting the times from Cheng Xiao Xiao, the Elder’s hands shook a little.
As much as consistency is important, a patron of
mine suggested that numerologist would be more fitting for mathematician, so Mo
Xuanzun would be referred to as genius numerologist going forward. (Thank you
for the wonderful suggestion, stumblelina stumblmer!! :)
