Even Cheng Xiao Xiao was a bit surprised. She didn’t think they would run into a such a generous person. This jo looked to be around five taels. It is enough to support a regular family for months.
“Mon, are you familiar with the Ning House?” Cheng Xiao Xiao tucked at Mrs. Cheng who was still in shock and asked gently.
“Ugh….” Mrs. Cheng put away the silver, looked at her daughter and shook her head, “In the past it was your dad who’d came and sold the animals he’d hunted. I have only been here a couple of times, so, no, I am not familiar of the Ning family.”
Then, nervously, Mrs. Cheng asked, “Xiao Xiao, our chickens and rabbits aren’t worth so such, could he….”
Looking at the worried Mrs. Cheng, Cheng Xiao Xiao understood what she meant, so she replied, “Mom, you are overthinking this. He just wanted our chickens and rabbits is all.”
Cheng Xiao Xiao was very observant earlier. The man was genuinely surprised when he saw the chickens and rabbits. The way he looked at her mom was pure. Her guess was, he genuinely didn’t care that much about the money.
“Mom, since the Ning family had already purchased our chickens and rabbits, let’s go deliver these to them!” She interrupted the still hesitant mother, “If anyone else came by and ask for them, it will be a hassle.”
“Okay! Let’s go deliver these!”
Mrs. Cheng calmed down shortly and the two of them picked up the chickens and rabbits, found the way by asking some passersby. They only had to make a couple turns before they arrived at a fairly glamorous structure.
Working with a few servants, they were able to hand over the chickens and rabbits. The two of them finally felt relieved.
The butler at the Ning House was a bit confused why they received these fowls. He looked at the two of them quizzically as they walked away. He couldn’t figure out why the steward serving the master decided to purchase these fowls.
Naturally the steward he was referring to was the generous man that Cheng Xiao Xiao and her mom have met.
With the five taels of silver, the two of them bought a lot of daily items on the street. Lastly, they walked into the biggest clinic in the city to look for a doctor for Cheng Bi Yuan.
They were welcomed by the smell of herbs. The familiar smell brought a smile onto Cheng Xiao Xiao’s little face. She liked the herb smell, it reminded her of her former workplace.
It had only been a few weeks, but it felt like it had been forever.
“Miss, you need some herbs?” An old man standing in front of the counter asked kindly.
Mrs. Cheng walked up to the counter and, respectfully, she asked, “We are looking for a doctor. Do you have a doctor who will do house call?”
“Oh? Someone is sick in your household? Why didn’t you bring them?” The doctor didn’t seem surprised, he asked matter-of-factly.
With a sad look Mrs. Cheng replied, “It’s my husband. He was badly injured and couldn’t move. I couldn’t bring him here, so I had to ask you to do a house call.”
“Ooooh….” The doctor took a good look at the two of them, then said, “Give me a minute, I am just going to fetch my medicine bag.”
“Doctor, we don’t live in town. We live in Willow Village, I wonder if you are…..” Mrs. Cheng felt embarrassed, but she had to explain the situation.
The doctor paused for a little bit, then turned and looked at all them with all their baggage. He nodded slightly and said to them, “Well, I have already promised I will go, but since Willow Village is a bit far from here. I will have to ask for an addition fee for making house call, is that okay?”
“Of course, of course. That’s very reasonable for a house call.” Replied Mrs. Cheng immediately.
