TWQQF ch 37.2 - The Power of Jade Vine

“What kind of a suggestion?”

Meeting the puzzled look in her parents’ eyes, Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled and said, “Dad, mom, what I am thinking is we should hire someone to come and fix up the house some; otherwise, it’s different to entertain guests in the future!”

“That’s a very good point, Xiao Xiao!” Cheng Biyuan looked around at the 4 straw huts plus the courtyard and sighed, “This place is quite small, not to mention that it leaks in the rain storms. We should plan  on some remodeling.”


Mrs. Cheng didn’t say anything but she agreed with the suggestion. After all, they hastily built these four straw huts. After being worn down by the weather all these time, they leaked during the summer and windy during the winter.

“There’s no need to wait till next month. I will go look for someone from the village to come help us rebuild right away!” Cheng Biyuan was a man of actions, he was about to head out right away.

“Dad, hold off!” Cheng Xiao Xiao stopped him right away. After he stopped in his steps, she continued, “Dad, we should also plan on expanding our farm, which Yuteng could do overnight. If the villagers come help us rebuild now, I’m afraid it will raise questions. Let’s hold off till we have Yuteng expand our farm!”

“Okay, whatever you say!” said Cheng Biyuan, what’s another few days?

That night, after dinner, Cheng Xiao Xiao went back inside the dimension and happened upon Yuteng harvesting from the fields. She sat in front of the cottage and watched quietly.

Even though little Yuteng was busy, but she completed her tasks in a matter of minutes.

“Young master, what’s the matter? You look unhappy?” Asked little Yuteng with a smile when she spotted the cheerless Cheng Xiao Xiao.

Cheng Xiao Xiao pursed her lips and said, “Not really unhappy. My dad wanted to break though to mid-level martial master. Xiao Yu1 is there anything you can do to help?”

“Just a little martial master, that’s easy. If young master let him absorb a 5,000 year old wild ginseng, he could advance to level 5 or 6 martial master in a day, that will put him at mid-level!” said little Yuteng casually.

“5,000 years?” Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t know wat to say, “Where am I going to go find 5,000 year old wild ginseng? It’s not we are talking about bok choy that you can find all over the place. Even if we go into the mountain I’m afraid that would still be a difficult task. 5,000 years, its about to turn into a fairy!”2

“Hehe, young master, you are right. 5,000 year old wild ginseng can be considered panacea, but not quit to turn into a fairy. It will take at least 10,000 years for it to gain intelligence.”

Little Yuteng’s commentary taught Cheng Xiao Xiao something new, “I see. I guess we will have the opportunity to encounter panacea in the future!”

“Hehe, young master. If you want panacea that will be easy!”

“What do you mean?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was dumbfounded, she gave the little fairy a sideway glance.

“Young master, you know how the dimension is saturated with mythical air?”

“Yes, very saturated, makes one feels good breathing it in!” nodded Cheng Xiao Xiao, but she was still not getting her point, “What does the mythical air in the dimension have to do with panacea?”

“It has everything to do with each other!” Little Yuteng pointed toward a field of herb vines and said, “Young master, the time in the dimension is several times that of the outside world. Just look at the herbs that I have planted at the beginning, they have aged tens of years already. Isn’t that impressive?”

“Tens of years?” Cheng Xiao Xiao widened her clear eyes, her face filled with surprise.

“Yes, tens of years isn’t enough. But, I can directly infuse the mythical air from the dimension into the desired herb and accelerate it’s growth and age. I can achieve the 5,000 year old wild ginseng that you need in a month if not half a month!”

“That’s wonderful!”

    1. Takes less time to prepare? Or that the brother's level is lower so he didn't need the best stuff? Don't want to short cut it all now, do we? :D
