Cheng Bi Yuan lowered his dimmed eyes. Mrs. Cheng, who was standing nearby, nodded and smile, “Xiao Xiao was right. I will go and borrow the cow-drawn wagon from Patriarch Liu again so we can sell our produces for more money and get some better medicines for your dad. Now that he is recovering, we should continue on with the treatment.”
“Plus, we need more salt and oil. Let’s arrange our trip for day after tomorrow!” Mrs. Cheng had made the decision.
Looking at the silent father, Cheng Xiao Xiao could figure out what was on his mind. She added, “Dad, we don’t need much, we just want you to recover to normal.”
Even though she didn’t have the original memory of Cheng Xiao Xiao, but she could still tell that her father was not just a commoner. Espeically seeing how her brother Cheng Zheng Yuan has been practicing kung fu everyday. She was sure her dad was a very skilled kung fu master of his time.
Unfortunately she didn’t know how he had offended someone. Not only did they force him to this place, they followed him all the way just to sever his tendons and crush his bones – the way to rid someone of all his skill in kung fu. That much she could figure out.
Cheng Bi Yuan slowly raise his head. He knew his daughter has changed, but he didn’t expect her to have such intuition. Casually, he said, “You can make decisions around the house; be careful when you go sell things at the marketplace.” Slight worry flashed passed his eyes, he worried that others will realize they have mythical animals here.
He knew very well that if others discovered these mythical animals, they will never have peaceful days again. But the family needs money and they didn’t have anything else to sell. What options did he have?
“Mom, dad, I understand!”
After that was settled, Cheng Xiao Xiao stayed and chitchatted for a bit before she exited her parents’ house.
Woof woof woof woof…..
Cheng Xiao Xiao heard her dogs barking right before she was about to enter her house. She dashed toward the outside immediately.
“Xiao Xiao, who came?” Asked Mrs. Cheng when the ruckus drew her attention and she, too, exited her hours.
“Mom, I’m not too sure!”
The two of them walked to the field to check out what was going on. They saw a woman squatting next to the vegetable field and yanking on a half-grown bok choy. Cheng Xiao Xiao was furious and shouted, “How dare you! Coming here to steal in broad day light!”
Her shout startled the woman who was yanking away in the vegetable field. She almost plowed face-down into the field. She turned around, and it was An Xiao Hung, the evil Hung niang.
“An Xiao Hung, how could you come and steal from us in board daylight! Isn’t that a bit much?!” Even Mrs. Cheng had lost her temperament.
Cheng Xiao Xiao ran up to look and noticed that she had already yanked out half the bok choy from the field. Angrily, she shouted, “An Hung niang, what was wrong with you? You can’t just come here and take our vegetables!”
“What’s the big deal? You didn’t need to yell. I am just taking a couple of your sprouts. How care you call me a thief!”
The displeased An Hung niang stood up and patted away some of the dirt on her clothes. She then bent over and picked up a bunch of the bok choy that she had pulled out and said to the two of them, “We are all Willow villagers. There’s no need to name call. Aren’t you guys a bit rude toward Willow villagers?”
They have seen unreasonable people, but not someone this unreasonable. The Cheng’s mother and daughter were shaking from their anger!
This was the first time Cheng Xiao Xiao wanted to physically strike someone. Sternly she warned, “Put the vegetables down or else!”
