Chapter 56. Raising dogs to guard home

Lin Qing He wasn't worried about Mei Jie disagreeing. Even though the transaction was a bit risky, the current movement was not as severe as it was in the early 1960s.

Then there was Mei Jie, who had to support the elderly and half-grown children who can eat their old man to poverty. This period was the time of the middle-aged crisis.

It was truly having old above and young below. As long as one wasn't stupid, they would be willing to give it a try.

Both husband and wife have employment, so obviously they weren't stupid. Lin Qing He anticipated as long as there's no problem on her side, it'll be fine.

With a space in her hand, buying and selling some stuff was like playing for her.

Now the only problem for her was that she had to get up so early in the future!

Would she be able to conceal getting up early from Zhou Qing Bai? Lin Qing He felt that she couldn't hide this matter. With his character, he most likely would ask her to not do it.

When Lin Qing He came back, she chanced upon someone from other villages carrying their eggs to sell. So she bought two jins of eggs on the way home.

As Lin Qing He went back, she hadn't been able to come up with anything.

Zhou Qing Bai was a little puzzled. Why did his wife look like she had something to say but stopped for some reason?

He didn't ask immediately.

It was already past three o'clock. Tonight she intended to eat bean paste bun, so Lin Qing He didn't plan to cook.

But because of the dry weather in winter, she stewed seaweed and ribs soup.

There weren't many spare ribs remaining. Lin Qing He added It all.

In the evening, the family was quite satisfied with the food. After eating, they routinely went to wash and sleep.

But because of this bean paste bun, she was worried that the children were too small to digest well, so she played with them for a while before sleeping.

"What's the matter?" Zhou Qing Bai said as he hugged her.

That's right, the children were moved by him to one side tonight again. He shared the quilt with her again.

"I ordered meat with my Mei Jie as I planned to make some bacon. Mei Jie told me to go over at 5:30 tomorrow morning." Lin Qing He mentioned.

"Slaughterhouse?" Zhou Qing Bai asked.

"En." Lin Qing He nodded.

"You sleep. I will go tomorrow, Mei Jie recognize me." Zhou Qing Bai stated.

"The children are still asleep at half past five. You stay at home, I will go on my own." Lin Qing He shook her head.

Zhou Qing Bai didn't speak and patted her on the back to signal her to sleep.

Early the next morning, Zhou Qing Bai got up quietly. But as soon as he moved, Lin Qing He woke up.

"Sleep, I can get it." Zhou Qing Bai coaxed.

"I will go with you. We can come back before the children wake up." Lin Qing He shook her head.

Seeing that he couldn't dissuade her, Zhou Qing Bai didn't stop her. So he wrapped her up tightly. Lin Qing He had a black thread hanging over her (T/N: basically this 囧). However, once she stepped out, she felt a gust of cold air. She felt that she was quite noble, to make such a big sacrifice for this family!

"If you dare to let me down in the future, I will definitely be able to live better than you!" Lin Qing He harrumphed as she sat behind him, hugging his waist.

Zhou Qing Bai: "... I will not let you down." You are my wife. In this life, I'm your most loyal partner and will never betray you.

But he wasn't the kind to say love words. These were what he silently vowed in his heart.

Zhou Qing Bai's feet were fast. Even with her, the cycling speed was fast and stable. With Lin Qing He, it took him half an hour to reach the slaughterhouse.

The departed at 5 o'clock, so it was 5.30 on the dot.

Mei Jie was already waiting when they arrived.

Lin Qing He got off the bike and quickly uttered, "Jie, how long have you been waiting here?"

"Nt long, I just arrived." Mei Jie smiled. At the sight of the couple coming, she automatically assumed that both of them were aware of the matter: "Old Chen said he could get five jins. Both pork belly and loin."

"Many thanks, Jie." Lin Qing He responded at once. Then she continued: "Jie, go in and get the meat to show me. Pigtail, pig leg, pork ribs, and the likes, can you see if you can give me some?"

As she spoke, she passed seven yuans.

"OK, wait a bit." Mei Jie took her basket and went in. Soon she brought it out.

Lin Qing He didn't give many glimpses to it. She accepted it and said, "Jie, then we'll go back first. The children are still sleeping at home."

"Hurry back." Mei Jie nodded.

Zhou Qing Bai also carried her back.

"You have a good relationship." Zhou Qing Bai mentioned.

"It is," Lin Qing He replied. She gave Mei Jie a two-jin national food coupon yesterday.

A thing like national food coupons was very precious. But they weren't much use to her family. Zhou Qingbai brought a lot of them back. These were the smaller ones. She hadn't taken out the five jin and ten jin ones yet.

She'll keep those. She didn’t plan to take them out easily. She wondered if she should open the letter of recommendation and go to the old capital.

Why go to the old capital?

Naturally for cleaning out her treasure.

But now it was too early to talk about this. The children were still young. It was inconvenient to take them for traveling. Wait until they are bigger.

"Do you think what I did was crooked?" Lin Qing He asked.

Zhou Qing Bai shook his head and expressed: "There is nothing lawless here. It's not like it was reselling."

Both the kids and adults in the family need to consume oil content. They bought it with money, so how was it unruly.

Lin Qing He didn't get comforted by this because she planned to resell in spring next year!

"Let's head back quickly. Don't know if the children at home woke up yet," Lin Qing He said.

Although he didn't say it, Zhou Qing Bai still felt that his wife had something to worry about.

It was only six o'clock when they got home. This season was for winter isolating. Every family didn't get up so early. So the village was completely quiet.

"Were there any dogs retired from your previous work?" Suddenly, it came to Lin Qing He that the family needed a dog to watch the house.

"We can raise?" Zhou Qing Bai gazed at her.

Lin Qing He felt that he was a little happy. She didn't know what he was happy about, it was only raising a dog. The children were still small, so it was a pretty good idea to raise one.

"Of course, but only if it came from that place. Ordinary dogs don't do anything. I don't plan on getting them." Lin Qing He declared.

"There is. Before I came back, Head asked me, but I thought you wouldn't want to raise it and refused. Although it retired due to injury and the leg was a little lame, it is a good hand at guarding home. What's more, it is also loyal to the owner." Zhou Qing Bai affirmed.

"Seem like you raised this dog before," Lin Qing He struck home with her words.

Zhou Qing Bai stared at his wife, he did not expect his wife to be so keen.

The dog was indeed his former partner, but like him, he got injured and retired. He should be still there.

"After breakfast, go to the commune to make a call and ask." Lin Qing He instructed.

She tossed out some pork belly and loin from the space. Some ribs were also taken out. Because it was from Mei Jie, she doesn't have to worry as long as it wasn't too excessive since it came from a known source.
