TWQQF ch 152 - Shameless Family; Taking a Trip Alone (5)

“No worries, dad. I got it handled. This family needs your help elsewhere!”

“If you need anything, you must let us know. We will figure it out together!”

“Dad, don’t worry. I understand!”

“Oh yes, Xiao Xiao, Innkeeper Zhu just mentioned that he was almost done with training the servants, and that some of them are not suitable to be kept. You got any ideas?”

Cheng Biyuan thought about another issue.

“Dad, if they are not suitable, let’s not keep them. We will just let them go!” said Cheng Xiao Xiao seriously.

“You are right that we shouldn’t be keeping them!” said Cheng Biyuan, a bit troubled. “I heard from Innkeeper Zhu that some of these folks even like to take advantage of us. Keeping these folks will surely mean troubles in the future, but…..

“But, we are so shorthanded. Now that we are expanding our family house, that will become an issue. Innkeeper Zhu suggested that we bring in some more from the outside!”

Upon hearing this, Cheng Xiao Xiao shook her head and said, “Dad, let’s hold off on that for now. I will make a trip out in a bit, let’s wait for me to come back before making that decision!”

“A trip out? Where will you be going, Xiao Xiao?” paused Cheng Biyuan.

“Don’t worry, dad. I just want to walk around the county for a bit!”

“Xiao Xiao, you want to go pick our servants by yourself?” Cheng Biyuan guessed it right away and continued saying, “No! I can’t let you go out there by yourself. Let  me handle this, I will go and bring some helper hands back!”1

“No, dad, I will go!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao smiled, “I need to test out something, so just let me handle this one!”

“What are you testing out?” frowned Cheng Biyuan lightly. “Can’t you test them all out at all? You must go outside for that?”

“Dad, what are you worried about? Never mind about mystical beasts, I also have Yuteng. I don’t think there’s anyone here that can trap me for the time being!”

“It’s not that I don’t trust you, I just worry about any unforeseeable circumstances!” Seeing how determined his daughter was, Cheng Biyuan had no choice but to say, “Okay, fine, if you want to go out, use caution at all times. And come back as soon as you can, delegate down whatever you can. We have plenty of helpers right now and we can afford to owe people favors!”2

“Dad, I understand!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao had been planning on a trip for a while now, ever since she wanted to find out if she could collect human beings into the dimension. She must have it figured out, she just hasn’t had the opportunities yet.

Right now, her immediately action item was to kick out those who were no longer of use to her.

As a gesture of appreciation for those who had chopped down over ten thousand trees for them, Cheng Xiao Xiao decided to be generous for once and give each of them one bottle of mystical water each.

After everybody had received the mystical water from the Cheng’s disciples, their looks all varied. They couldn’t decide whether to throw away the water and make a point, or thank them and carefully set aside the precious mystical water.

After logging in the mountains for 7 days, and the only payment they received at them end was just one bottle of mystical water. They didn’t know whether they should be angry or not, so one by one they turned around and left!

All the students had left quickly, leaving the last two individuals staying behind shamelessly. Surprised, Cheng Xiao Xiao looked at the and asked, “Old men, why are you guys still here? Let me get one thing straight, you can’t stay here even if you have more mystical stones. You should leave quickly!”

“Ahem, ahem…”



1. If Gong Zixuan could travel around with her little maid, why couldn’t Cheng Xiao Xiao? Since when was that an issue?

2. Why are they owing any favors? Aren’t these all paying employees? =.=

  1. We can afford to owe favours... Probably means other families. Meaning that they could probably ask around for helpers.

    1. Yeah, that school itself offered free labour. There was no word about food and water.
