Transmigration with QQ Farm ch 18.2 - Scolding The Shrew

“Big sister, Hung niang was such an awful person!” Little Lan Lan was still upset at the exchange.

Cheng Xiao Xiao walked on as she told her, “Keep in mind, Lan Lan, don’t get into fights with people like that in the future. Ignore her if you run into her, you understand?”

“Understood, big sister!” Replied little Lan Lan obediently, then she asked, “Big sister, do you like Danhang ge?”

Ugh….


Even kids her age want to ask about her love life, corner Cheng Xiao Xiao’s quivered a bit, she looked her little sisters clear, round eyes and didn’t want to hide anything from her, so she said, “No!”

“Oh….” Little Lan Lan nodded and has a look of understanding. Cheng Xiao Xiao wasn’t sure whether she should laugh or cry from her sister’s expression, so she reached out and rubbed on her head.

The two of them continued to walk toward home. Little Lan Lan, holding Cheng Xiao Xiao’s hand, asked, “Big sister, why was it that Hung niang and the others don’t believe that we are eating rice and meat at home?”

Little Lan Lan couldn’t figure this one out. In her mind, she had spoken the truth so others should believe her, but everyone else looked at them in disbelief.

Cheng Xiao Xiao froze a bit over this question. Suddenly, that reminded her of an bigger issue. If they continuously sell the items she obtained from the dimension, it’s a matter of time before others ask about the source of the animals and rice.

If they weren’t able to provide a reasonable excuse, she worried that she would bring out bigger trouble.

Both her and the parents had completely overlooked this fact.

Cheng Xiao Xiao considered it lucky that her sister just reminded her of that. They need to figure out someone quickly.

After they have arrived and had dinner, and the sibling were out playing, Cheng Xiao Xiao and her mother both appeared in the father’s house.

After having the medicines for a few days, the badly injured Mr. Cheng was starting to look better. He was pale like ice as he was a while ago, even his saddened eyes brightened up a little.

After seeing his wife and daughter both appearing in his house at the same time, he cast a glance at his daughter and asked, “Xiao Xiao, is something wrong?”

“No, nothing is wrong, just thought of an issue that I want to bring up to the two of you,” said Cheng Xiao Xiao with a smile.

Mrs. Cheng, who was standing nearby, looked gloomy. She looked over at her elegant daughter an sighed sadly. Her younger daughter had also told her about what had transpired in Willow Village, of course she was worried.

Of course, she was also annoyed at the shrewd An Xiao Hung who was trying to spread rumors for no reason and causing her daughter to be distressed.

Mr. Cheng had not caught up on what had happened so he was curious about what his daughter had to say. He instructed his daughter directly, “What’s the problem, just tell us, we will figure something out together.”

“Dad, mom, here’s the issue, right now we are mainly selling the rice and animals from the dimension. On top of that, we sell them by the dozens. Xiao Xiao2 worries  that at this rate we will attract unwanted attention. It will be a matter of time when others suspect that we have some kind of treasure or special ability if we don’t grow chickens and rabbits and have some fields. Xiao Xiao thinks that we should figure out a way to explain these away should anyone come and check us out.” Looking solemn, Cheng Xiao Xiao lightly revealed what was on her mind.

“You nailed it, Xiao Xiao. Both your mom and I had forgotten about this problem!” A beam of light shot out of Cheng Bi Yuan’s eyes. With all seriousness, he said, “We will certain bring out troubles to ourselves if we keep this up!”

1.     Da niang  - literal meaning is “big woman/mother”, usually a respectable way to refer to a woman older than you.
2.     Not a typo. She referred to herself in third person. A sign of humbleness in front of elders.

  2. Oh my tian. Fin-fucking-nally! See how shortsighted they are. Think before acting. Just make a fucking chicken coop and put some damn chickens inside. Say that the family has been raising them for some time! Rabbits can be said the same way. For the veges, they’ve all fucked up. Dumb, dumber, and dumbest! (눈_눈) My frustration at their lack of insight just makes me tired now. Why does my heart feel so much pity for their lack of brain cells?
    Thanks for translating^_^!

    1. In their defence though, when people go from riches to rags they are often in quite a large amount of stress and tend to not have very logical thought processes because of it. I once had a neighbour who pretty poor and she got a government handout and blew it all on packet drinks because her kids said that they wanted it once. When asked why, she said that the packet drinks became an obsession point which could possibly explain why they acted in a similar way. Or it could just be that I overexplained the author's lack of forsight.welp. Thank you for translating this though!!

    2. That's the thing, they didn't go from rags to riches...

      They were obviously from some sort of clan or sect in the past, so they obviously had money before, yet the second they become poor, their brains completely stopped working entirely.

      They even seem to forget that a few days ago, they literally said this could be a massive danger to them and yet they still won't explain it etc.

      It's beyond the point of dumb and short sighted, it's on the level of 'how did these guys not just directly eat poison handed to them by their enemies while claiming it was candy'.

    Why are you translating room to house? Clearly they're all in one house and they enter the dads room.
