TWQQF ch 35.2 - Ambitious

But, looking at Old Man Ning stroking his beard with a bright smile, he thought he had a slight idea, “Master, I’m not sure young master will go for that!”

“You said that maiden Cheng is fair looking. As long as Zong’er is engaged to maiden Cheng, I trust that they’d treat us fairly. Then we can use their spiritual well and raise more mythical animals to sell. We might even be able to get an in with them!”


“Master is right!” Ko Kang immediately understood who his master was referring to. If they can get an in with them, the Ning’s just might become an aristocrat of Qing'an Province. “Master, young master hasn’t been home for three years. We will have to summon him home before we can set up an arranged marriage with the Cheng’s.”

“We will summon him home once the decision has been made. I wonder how he’s doing at the School of Divine Condor. Why don’t you send someone to summon him back for a few days?”

“Yes, Master!”

The servant and master at the Ning’s had made their decision. Inside the Cheng’s yard, only three people were there. The young ones had been booted to practice martial art in the bamboo forest.

Cheng Biyuan looked at this daughter, sighed lightly and asked, “Xiao Xiao, what is your plan?” Unknowingly, he had became more mindful of his daughter’s ideas.

“Dad, don’t worry. I trust that those at the Ning’s won’t cause any troubles!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao nonchalantly. “Dad, I want to ask your opinion on whether we should open up our own shop to sell our goods or should we continue to wholesale? Or you don’t want to sell any of them at all?”

“Don’t sell any of them?” Cheng Biyuan frowned, “Deacon Ko of the Ning’s is already aware of our situation. I’m not sure not selling them will be an option. We risk attracting even more unwanted attention if we wholesale them. I say we just play it by the ear for now!”

“Dad, what’s bothering you?” Cheng Xiao Xiao detected a shred of helplessness in her father’s eyes.

“Xiao Xiao, you don’t understand human greed!” Cheng Biyuan shook his head lightly, “If our family is not strong enough, I think we will be taken over before we know it.”

“Dad, you mean, they will play dirty to take over what are ours?”

Cheng Xiao Xiao remembered a saying: Survival of the fittest. As long as the others have power and status, they will be able to take over what belong to the Cheng’s. The Cheng’s will need to be strong in order to keep these people at bay.

Suddenly, Cheng Xiao Xiao thought of something else and a bright smile appeared on her face, “Dad, you’ve forgotten. We are not helpless little lambs. If they dare come, our two dogs are not vegetarians!”

The dogs cloned from the dimension were also mythical animals. More people would not be able to rival them, let alone that they still have 7 to 8 mythical beasts and mythical air in the dimension. The Cheng’s, as of today, did have the ability to defend themselves.

Reminded by his daughter, Cheng Biyuan had thought about the same thing. His worries slowly dissipated and replaced by strong confidence. Boldly, he announced, “Xiao Xiao, since words have already gotten out about our mythical animals, we couldn’t cover it up for much longer. Let’s just expand our ranch and mass breed our mythical animals for sale. Let’s see who still dare to look down upon us!”

Looking at her proud father, Cheng Xiao Xiao was a bit surprised. At the same time, she had also noticed the ambition in her father’s eyes so she nodded in agreement, “Okay, let’s see how much interest our mythical animals can drum up!”

Ye, Xiao Xiao, you two….” Mrs. Cheng looked more worried than happy.

  1. "We're trying to keep a low profile so our enemies don't hunt us down... Why don't we expand and sell rare animals en masse! WHAT COULD GO WRONG!?"

    *sigh*

    At this point I honestly believe that them ending up poor and starving in a tiny village is already a good end for them.

    2. I get the feeling for him it's a choice of, either we have to be so small our enemies don't notice us (too late for that one), or we have to be so big we can crush our enemies...so let's go big!
