TWQQF ch 41.2 - The Two Were Imprisoned

“That’s good to hear. Now let’s go to bed!”

“Okay!”

The two of them didn’t exchange much before they returned to their own quarters and went to bed.

The next morning, after breakfast and sending the three young ones to cultivate,1 Cheng Biyuan asked about what happened the night before.


Cheng Xiao Xiao briefed him on the event, including the part that they were imprisoned by her inside the bamboo forest.

“Xiao Xiao, what are you planning on doing with them?” Cheng Biyuan wanted to know what was on her mind.

“Dad, what are you thinking?”

She answered his question with another question. She, too, wanted to know his thoughts.

Cheng Biyuan cast her a glance, “We can’t kill them. More will be coming for them shortly. We will need to be able to give them an answer then!”

“I understand. We won’t kill them!” Cheng Xiao Xiao never intended to kill them. After all, they weren’t trying to kill her family the night before, just the mythical animals.

Not punishable by death, but she wasn’t going to let them off lightly either!

“Oh yeah, dad, I want to discuss something with you!” Cheng Xiao Xiao remembered her intention with the bamboo forest.

“Oh yeah? What is it?”

“Dad, since the brothers like to cultivate in the bamboo forest behind the house. I want to improve it. I heard from Yuteng that if we irrigate it with well water, the bamboo can become spiritual. That way it could enhance the progress of cultivation!”

“Xiao Xiao, are you serious?”

Cheng Biyuan was pleasantly surprised. He knew what this meant. Cultivating at a location filled with spiritual air will enhance the speed of progress greatly. This he had heard of in past.

“Dad, I mean it, truly!” replied Cheng Xiao Xiao seriously.

“Great, great, great. This is awesome!” Cheng Biyuan was ecstatic. He rubbed his fist and became very ambitious, “If this works, our place will turn into sacred land. Ha ha ha ha ha…”

“Dad, don’t be so excited just yet. We have a large field of bamboos. You think this will be easy?” Cheng Xiao Xiao couldn’t help but to rain on his parade a little.

“Yes, of course it will be easy. It’s passed seeding time, the villagers had lots of free time. We will have some of them come to help out and pay them with food or money. A lot of them will be willing to help out!”

“Hmm, that might not be a bad idea!”2

“I’ll go look for helpers right away!”

Cheng Biyuan was a man of his words. Immediately he headed out the door happily.

After her father left, Cheng Xiao Xiao walked inside the kitchen and saw her mother boiling water. She walked up to her and asked, “Mom, anything I can help you with?”

“Xiao Xiao you are here. How come you didn’t go cultivate? I don’t need much help around the house!” said Mrs. Cheng tenderly as the water boiled.

Xiao Xiao helped her mother to the stool and seated her, smiling lightly, “Mom, have me help you in the future. We don’t want you to burden yourself!”3

“Xiao Xiao, a little bit of housework is not a burden!”

Mrs. Cheng stared at her precious daughter and she couldn’t help but sighed again, “Xiao Xiao, dad’s health has more or less recovered fully. Now I worry about your marriage. We should ask your dad to ask about in a little bit and look for a good family for you!”

“Mom, why are you bringing this up again?” Cheng Xiao Xiao frowned light and helplessly said, “Mom, I have said it before, there are no rush. Why don’t you  let me worry about that?”

“Nonsense. What do you mean let you worry about that? These decisions are always made by the parents and the matchmaker!”4

Random translator’s note:

1.     They imprisoned the bad guys same place as the siblings cultivate? How’s that a good idea? =.=
2.     Really? Isn’t the secret going to get out then? :O
3.     Isn’t the mother only in her 30s?? O.o

4.     Ut oh, can you say trouble? :D

  1. I suppose that they imprisoned in another area of the bamboo forest and not near were the siblings always cultivate (?)

    Thanks for the chapter ♡

  2. Oh lord, is the mother seriously planning to just give her golden goose away? Yeah, sure, it's got to happen eventually. But the girl's value and thus ability to find a better, more meritorious husband is only going to increase with time as the family gets better and better off through her power! This is a terrible decision for the family and a poor decision for the girl herself.

  3. I swear the mom is an idiot. Thankfully the dad seems to have half a brain and seems on the same wavelength as MC

  4. I felt the mother's personality had changed. In the beginning when they went to the market the author described the mother as very cultured, raised in a good family, etc. etc. Now she just acts like a silly village woman. =.= In any case, our MC isn't the type who'd just do as she is told. =D
