(Sponsored chapter 4/7)
The car ride was as boring as ever.
After Ji Cha explained several times that he was really not short of money, Liang Jincheng finally gave up his wish to throw money to Ji Cha, but he still asked him every once in a while, “Is there really no problem at home?”
The word “home” in his tone was intimate and natural, and Ji Cha couldn’t help but feel that he was the little daughter-in-law who was returning to her parents’ home with her husband. The family was short of money, and the son-in-law was very concerned.
“Really,” he said vaguely, biting a chicken leg, “I have other uses for the money from the sale of the house…”
Liang Jincheng glanced at him in the rearview mirror, his tone was still the same as before, “Tell me if you are short of money.”
Liang Jincheng’s charm in Ji Cha’s heart was deepened, this local tyrant … he’s just begging for others to come and hug his thighs all over.
Ji Cha finished eating the chicken legs, cleaned up the garbage, assembled the words in his head, and said to Liang Jincheng, “I’m going home to farm. If you have time, senior, come over and play. There are many rooms in my house, so you won’t have squeeze in a bed with me.” Let me tell you, it’s really much better to read on hololo novels.
Liang Jincheng gripped the steering wheel and smiled, “Really? I’m looking forward to sleeping with you.” His tone was relaxed, and Ji Cha naturally regarded it as a joke.
Although he didn’t know where it was funny, but in order to hug the other’s thighs, Ji Cha laughed dryly, and then said, “Hahaha, I sleep very badly, I’m afraid you’ll be out of breath by then.
Liang Jincheng pursed his lips and said nothing, the smile in his eyes deepened.
Ji Cha didn’t know what else to say, but he wanted to get closer to Liang Jincheng, “Senior, are you a native of G city?”
Liang Jincheng said, “No, my home is in city A.” Then, without waiting for Ji Cha to continue to ask, he immediately said, “It’s just me and a sister at home. My mother passed away five years ago. My father and I are not very close.”
Ji Cha didn’t expect that when he was just asking casually, the other party had said all the details as if he would even reveal his household registration. Just as he was stunned, Liang Jincheng turned to him and asked, “How about you?”
Liang Jincheng has said so in detail about his life, and it seems that it is not good for him to be vague.
Ji Cha answered, “My parents have also passed away for a few years. I haven’t seen my paternal grandparents, and my maternal grandfather died when I was very young. Now there is only my grandmother and me in the family. She is in good health. This trip is to take good care of her.”
Of course Liang Jincheng knew about all these things, but he still nodded along with Ji Cha’s words, pretending as it was the first time he heard it. He really liked Ji Cha so much that he spoke slowly in a soft tone that he was not even aware of.
Every time he listened to Ji Cha speak, he felt like his scalp is being massaged slowly by a small hand, and he couldn’t help but relax.
“You said you were going home to farm?” Liang Jincheng turned a corner and continued to ask.
Ji Cha quickly followed the words to pave the way for himself, “Yes, this, I believe, is the best thing I should do right now..”
Liang Jincheng laughed at the seriousness in his words, but he didn’t take Ji Cha’s words as real. He just smiled, “Then what are you going to plant?”
“Something self-sufficient, it’s good to be able to support yourself, and don’t have to think about anything else.” Ji Cha said, “I will count the senior’s meals into it.”
What does it mean to be able to poach such a post-apocalyptic big man and provide a little food?
This sentence was purely said by Ji Cha in an attempt to hold his thighs, but there was only a loud bang in Liang Jincheng’s ears, and his ears were about to burn.
“What did you say?” He turned to look at Xiang Ji Cha, and there was a surprise and joy in his pupils.
“Really.” Ji Cha patted Liang Jincheng’s arm, “I will really count you in.”
Ji Cha just thought that Liang Jincheng didn’t believe it.
Liang Jincheng suppressed his surging emotions, so as not to scare Ji Cha, “Then after the summer vacation, I will pick you up at your house, and by the way, I will be able to see the results of your farming by then?”
This is simply rushing to my door by yourself!
Ji Cha wanted to fist-pump, but he endured it, “Well, that works! You can call me in advance when the time comes.”
The first few hours of the trip were uneventful. The two got off the highway in S City before noon and turned to the suburbs.
Ji Cha’s grandmother was expecting him today, so she started to prepare lunch at home since early in the morning. If you’re not reading this on hololo novels, well, please go read there. #sadface
When the time was approaching, she kept walking back and forth at the door.
Lin Fengxian, who had been pecked twice when she was killing the chicken yesterday, stood at the door of her house, watching Grandma’s actions from a distance, and asked loudly, “Mother Suqin, what are you busy with today?”
Grandma Ji Cha said without looking back, “My family’s Cha Cha is coming home for holiday today, I made food for him.”
Lin Fengxian didn’t walk towards Ji Cha’s Grandma from the door of her house, and said with a bit of a complaint, “I don’t know which fairy I’ve provoked. Yesterday, the chicken that was killed made trouble, and today, I’m feeling dizzy.”
Ji Cha’s grandma stopped and widened her eyes, “Oh, you don’t have the bird flu, do you? The two chickens in your family were too weird yesterday!”
Lin Fengxian scratched the hand that got pecked by the chicken, it was a little itchy, and after scratching it, she couldn’t stop, “It won’t be possible, I have kept these two chickens all this time, there will be no problem, maybe It was the wind blowing cold air last night. Mother Suqin, please give me some of the ointment your Chacha sent home, my skin is torn, and it’s a little itchy today.”
Grandma Ji Cha glanced down at Lin Fengxian’s injured hand. The wound had an unnatural black and purple color. Following Lin Fengxian’s fingernails and scratching back and forth, several pieces of flesh became torn, but she didn’t seem to care and was not afraid of pain, only continued to complain that it’s itchy.
Grandma Ji Cha remembered that Ji Cha told her not to join in the fun, and didn’t say anything, she just turned around and went to the room to take out the ointment, handed it to Lin Fengxian, and said, “here, take it, your wound looks pretty bad to me. It’s scary, it’s better for your family to take you to the hospital later.”
Lin Fengxian randomly dug out a piece of ointment and applied it, waved her hand to Ji Cha’s Grandma and said, “This isn’t a big deal. I don’t think it hurts anywhere, it’s a waste of money to go to the hospital!”
She turned around and left, murmuring, “I’m going back to cook for the child, and I have to feed her later.”
Ji Cha’s Grandma put the ointment aside, looked down at her hand that had touched the ointment jar, and went to wash it under running water before starting to wash the dishes again.
The sound of the car was drawing near.
Ji Cha’s grandmother quickly stood up and walked to the front of the house to see that a car she had never seen before was parked in front of her house. She narrowed her eyes and looked at it for a while, before struggling to recognize Ji Cha sitting in the passenger seat of the car.
After Ji Cha saw the old woman standing in front of the house, he didn’t bother to pack up the snacks in his hand, he quickly unbuckled his seat belt and jumped out of the car.
All the way towards the old woman.
Grandma Ji Cha was very flattered by her grandson’s long-lost enthusiasm, “Oh, what happened today, do you miss grandma so much?”
“Yeah!” Ji Cha endured the sour nose, gave his grandmother a big hug, and then turned around to introduce Liang Jincheng to her, “This is my senior Liang Jincheng. He brought me back.”
“Did you drive back all this way?” Ji Cha’s Grandma jumped in surprise, and then quickly walked towards Liang Jincheng, she stretched out her hand to grab Liang Jincheng’s arm, “Come on in, it’s fortunate, it’s fortunate. Thank you for taking care of Cha Cha at school, I worry for him sometimes!”
With natural enthusiasm, the grandmother made tea for Liang Jincheng and brought him buns and sweets as soon as he entered the house. Finally, she looked at Liang Jincheng carefully with her presbyopia eyes, and said to Ji Tea, “Your senior looks good, much more handsome than you, and it will be easy for him to find a wife in the future.”
Ji Cha was still holding back tears in his eyes, but when she told him such words, hhe immediately shrank back in anger, and argued unconvincingly, “Who said that! There are already female classmates who have sent me confession text messages!”
I tell you = confession text message.
(T/N: a little confused by the “I tell you” here. The author wrote I 向上 you, and 向上 = up/upwards.Maybe it’s a slang? Sorry :’( … )
He was also afraid that Liang Jincheng would be annoyed the rambling old woman, so he quickly said to him, “My grandmother is like this, but she is very nice.”
“Yeah.” Liang Jincheng nodded and treated Ji Cha’s Grandma very politely, “Grandma doesn’t have to be busy, I have a good relationship with Ji Cha, you don’t need to treat me as an outsider.”
Grandma Ji Cha looked at Liang Jincheng with a smile, but after a few words, she felt that the other party was nice and polite, so she sighed again, “Really, Xiao Liang, your girlfriend must be very happy, right?”
Ji Cha originally took a sip from the teacup, and after hearing this, he was about to help Liang Jincheng to say that he was still single, but Liang Jincheng glanced at him for some reason, and said, “*He doesn’t seem to like it very much now.”
*(T/N: in Chinese language, he/she is pronounced ‘Tā’ so, here Liang Jincheng is very sneaky by taking advantage of the gender neutral pronoun.)
“That’s because the little girl is ignorant. You are much better at finding a wife than my family’s Chacha!” Grandma said as she walked out, “I’m going to wash some more vegetable, they are grown in the vegetable garden at home.”
Ji Cha was angry at his grandmother’s words, took out his mobile phone, typed something, and sent it.
As soon as he pressed “send”, Liang Jincheng’s mobile phone suddenly rang a notification tone for receiving a text message.
Liang Jincheng raised his head and collided with Ji Cha’s gaze, Ji Cha smiled broadly, “What a coincidence!”
Iron: Ji Cha, what a dumbass you are, but can’t complain. Some people are just low in romantic IQ XD
