“Oh, just some wild tea from the mountain. We would you’d enjoy it!”
“Oh, you can tell it’s great tea just from its smell!” He knew the Cheng’s wasn’t an ordinary family and tried to suppress his surprise.
Cheng Biyuan smiled and drank silently. Cheng Xiao Xiao still had the book in her hands, only she knew whether she had looked up.
Soon as he had a sip of the tea, Ko Yang’s face froze from shock. This is mythical water.
Mythical animals, mythical water, where were they getting all these?
What was the background of this family?
A million possibilities flashed through his head and he couldn’t help but glanced at the father and daughter in front of him. Shaking the cup in his hand, he asked, “Mr. Cheng, pardon me, but may I ask where this water came from?”
“Oh, this is from the well behind our house!” Cheng Biyuan had an idea why he asked, but he had no intention to lie either.
“Water from the well?” Ko Yang was delighted and couldn’t refrain himself, “Mr. Cheng, may I please have a tour?”
“Oh…” Cheng Biyuan stood up, “Sure, this way please, Mr. Ko…”
“I appreciate your hospitality!”
Replying with a smile, Ko Yang stood up. While he was turning around, he cast Cheng Xiao Xiao another glance. He couldn’t explain why he had the urge to see her reaction.
After they have walked out of the yard, Mrs. Cheng came out from the kitchen and asked with a worried look, “Xiao Xiao, you think it will be okay?”
“Mom, since we couldn’t hide it any more we might as well let them know what we want them to know. I think it will be alright.” Answered Cheng Xiao Xiao confidently.
“Mom, big sister, who are these people and why did they bring us gifts?”
“Mom, can we open these gifts and see what they are?”
“I’m sure there are delicious food inside! Mom, open and show us!”
The little ones who were sent inside the house came running out and saw all the gifts on top of the table and were eager to wrap everything.
“Behave! These belong to our guests, don’t touch them!” scolded Mrs. Cheng. The little ones quiet down obediently.
Looking at their little faces, Cheng Xiao Xiao laughed, “Zheng Bin, Lan Lan, you’ve got to at least wait till the guests have left before opening up the presents, right? The guests haven’t left yet!”
All the little ones laughed at her words. Mrs. Cheng shook her head helplessly and said, “Go into the bamboo forest in the back and bring home some bamboo shells to burn. Stop hovering over here, make us look bad!”
“Okay, mom, we will head out right away!”
Following Cheng Zheng Yuan’s lead, the three young ones ran out again. Cheng Xiao Xiao put the book down and said, “Mom, I think they might stay for lunch, let’s start preparing!”
“You think so?”
“Yes, I think so. He’ll stay!”
Cheng Xiao Xiao was right, after Ko Yang had a tour of the entire Cheng’s set up outside and in, it was around lunch time, and, sure enough, he was staying for lunch.
The delicacies at the Cheng’s shocked him all over again. He noticed that every dish at the Cheng’s exuded spiritualness, how could he not be?
After lunch, Ko Yang, who came to purchase mythical animals didn’t buy anything. He left the gifts and left in a hurry with the two servants.
His actions were confusing to Mrs. Cheng, but Cheng Biyuan and Cheng Xiao Xiao had an idea of what was going on.
Okay, there better be a reason to her madness. Otherwise they shouldn’t have given them the spiritual water or keeping them for lunch! GRRRRRrrr.
