Chapter 126. Wife with so many secrets.

Zhou Qing Bai's knitted vest was the first to be made. As for the three cheeky boys, she'll take her time.

Da Wa also kept saying Father holds the most important spot in her heart. Lin Qing He frankly agreed and expressed that grouping the three of them together still can't outweigh Father's place in Mother's heart.

Da Wa voiced out how heartbroken he was. Er Wa gestured he was too. While San Wa, he whispered to his Father on his return and bargained if he could not hog Mother all to himself.

Zhou Qing Bai figured out what was going on and the corner of his raised mouth didn't drop.

Lin Qing He didn't know that she had further ensnare this man. She came to Zhou Qing Bai with a knitted sweater to compare. She directed at the father and son, "What are you two muttering?"

"Nothing," San Wa said.

"Let your Father go to work, don't hold him up." Lin Qing He dismissed him.

There was no autumn harvest now. Although the daily work was still tiring, he didn’t have work from dawn to dusk like the autumn harvest. So Lin Qing He heartlessly dumped the backyard's pigsty and chicken pen back to Zhou Qing Bai.

Mother Zhou and Father Zhou waited until it was almost time for dinner before coming over. However, dinner was slightly late today as Lin Qing He's knitting and bragging with her three sons caused some delay.

Lin Qing He went in to cook, while Zhou Qing Bai cleaned the pigsty and chicken pen in the backyard. Mother Zhou wasn't distressed when she saw it now.

After she came here often, she found that Fourth's wife basically had no idle time. She was either patching clothes for the kids or making them delicious food and drink.

She didn't pay much heed to herself very much.

What can Mother Zhou criticize about?

She left little Su Cheng for Er Wa and the others to watch and she entered the kitchen to help.

"You don't need to give a hand. It's just these three dishes." Lin Qing He said.

Today was a fried cucumber omelet, minced meat & tofu, and a shrimp skin & seaweed soup. They had cornmeal mantou.

It was very simple, but it was still that phrase. Lin Qing He was willing to use oil, so the dishes were very fragrant.

Mother Zhou noticed her working away swiftly and she really didn't need her, so she came over to the backyard.

"Mother." Zhou Qing Bai saw her arriving and called out.

"Today your wife went to the city to get some cotton and asked someone to help me and your father make a quilt." Mother Zhou smilingly mentioned.

"Qing He told me that you and Father's quilt aren't warm and will make a new one for you." Zhou Qing Bai nodded in confirmation.

Seeing the youngest son wasn't against it, Mother Zhou grinned and continued, "I thought it was just making a quilt for us. Didn't expect Qing He to buy some wool back and told me to knit two sweaters to wear."

"Since Qing He bought it, Mother knit them to wear." Zhou Qing Bai nodded.

"These two pigs, it might gain a lot of meat by then." Mother Zhou observed the two fat pigs with satisfaction.

But the only drawback was that it consumed more food.

"A lot of meat can be exchanged this year. At that time, what do you want to eat, Mother?" Zhou Qing Bai said.

"Your father and I are fine with whatever Qing He makes." Mother Zhou smiled.

Zhou Qing Bai nodded. His daughter-in-law's cooking was the most delicious.

Soon Zhou Qing Bai completed the work at hand.

This year, the two pigs in his family will not be killed until the end of the year. In a while, all winter wheat will be planted and then the team's one will be killed first.

Zhou Qing Bai tidied up and cleaned himself before coming over.

Lin Qing He had swiftly prepared the few dishes and carried them out.

The whole family gathered around and started eating.

In this era, every household and table won't be short a dish of pickled vegetables or vegetable chunk. However, this was rarely seen on her side. Lin Qing He doesn't like to eat them, so naturally, it will not appear.

There were only a few dishes. In fact, Lin Qing He was really frugal, but for people of this era, it was undoubtedly extravagant.

After eating, Father Zhou and Mother Zhou took Little Su Cheng back.

Er Wa and San Wa ran off to play. Lin Qing He left the chores to Da Wa and went back to the room to grab the wool to start knitting. Zhou Qing Bai took a bath. He came in completely refreshed. Lin Qing He told him about Da Wa's ambitions.

"If he can pass the exam, he can go to study." Zhou Qing Bai sat next to her and nodded.

"I don't know if the college entrance examination can be resumed in the future. If it can, Qing Bai, I want to take the exam for university." Lin Qinghe said.

Zhou Qing Bai was slightly stunned: "You also want to take the exam?"

"If I can take the test, I will take the test. You won't agree?" Lin Qing He raised his gaze toward him.

"It's not that. I'm afraid it will be difficult for the college entrance examination to resume," Zhou Qing Bai shook his head.

"It's very difficult, but I have a hunch that it will definitely recontinue in the future. I will take the exam at that time. Don't stop me." Lin Qing He stared at him.

"How can you be sure that it will?" Zhou Qing Bai looked at her.

"Talents are indispensable for national development. To make progress and development, a lot of knowledgeable people are needed. With the current situation, our country's talents are scarce. At that time, there will definitely be continuation for intellectuals selection. So I estimate that the college entrance examination will probably resume, right?" Lin Qinghe said.

Zhou Qing Bai didn't speak. His face was blank, but his heart was even shocked.

His wife, actually understood so much?

Lin Qing He looked at him. She already tried her best to make it simple. It wouldn't scare him?

"If it resumes, you can take the exam if you want. But for now, don't mention this outside." Zhou Qing Bai recovered and seriously looked at his wife.

His wife seemed to take literacy classes for a period of time and she could see that far.

To be honest, Zhou Qing Bai never thought about these things himself. It was clear that what his wife said is likely to be a dilemma in the future.

How did she think of this?

His wife always made him unable to read her.

"Why are you looking at me like this? I just heard Da Wa mention the Workers, Peasants, and Soldiers University and initially wanted to take the exam. But at the thought of me being the famous lazy woman in the village, I definitely couldn't pass the selection. Only then I thought of taking the college entrance exam in the future." Lin Qing He began to rectify.

Hearing this, Zhou Qing Bai was also relieved and nodded, "Don't talk about this outside."

"I'm not stupid. Needless to say, I only mention this kind of thing to you." Lin Qing He gave him an eye-roll.

Zhou Qing Bai smiled.

"When can you finish your work? There's no more firewood at home." Lin Qing He continued to knit and said.

"Still occupied for half a month." Zhou Qing Bai responded.

"Then we can bear a bit," Lin Qing He nodded.

Seeing her knitting, Zhou Qing Bai asked: "I heard my mother say you bought some for her and my father."

"En, I saw it was available over there, so I bought it back." Lin Qing He replied.

"Father and Mother are very happy since they came here to eat." When Zhou Qing Bai talked, his gaze on his wife was especially soft.

Lin Qing He smiled and said, "Since they're happy, then keep coming over here for the meals." At most, it was increasing the quantity.

Seven days later, Lin Qing He came over to get the quilt.
