(Sponsored chapter 5/5)
“Ama, let’s go back!”
Ma Fugui vigorously pulled Ma Ama, who wanted to rush to counterattack, and walked towards the entrance. Ma Ama scolded and cursed all the way, but he couldn’t get rid of his son’s dragging, so he could only watch the Lin’s clinic getting further and further away.
“You wait for me! I won’t spare you!”
Xie Yu watched the Ma Ama family leave; his heart was unhappy. Lin Fangliang held his hand. Old Doctor Lin shook his head with a smile, and said, “Don’t think too much, you are now the son-in-law of our Lin family. We’ll protect you, don’t be afraid of anything, don’t think too much, take good care of your body, this is the most important thing.”
Xie Yu’s body is still relatively weak. If he wants to become pregnant, he must first take care of his body.
Lin Fangliang also followed the words of his father and nodded. “Yes, don’t think about it too much.” No matter how uncomfortable it was, Xie Yu felt at ease when he heard the words of the father and son of the Lin family, “I know.”
Li Changfeng quietly listened to the movement in front of him, and after thinking about it, he didn’t go in. He turned around and went back to the room, “Ma Fugui was beaten, so he came to see the doctor. When Ma Ama saw Brother Xie, he said a few more words, and he was dragged away by Ma Fugui.” After thinking about it, he said again: “I originally wanted to go out to help when Ma Fugui’s Ama wanted to rush forward, but I saw Lin Fangliang got it under control, so I didn’t go out anymore. It was also their family’s business.”
After hearing this, Xu Qing nodded, “It’s not early, let’s pack up and go back. There are still Xiaobao and the piglet at home. We just came out in a hurry. I’m worried.” The quilt on his body was abruptly lifted, and he was about to jump out of bed carefreely.
Li Changfeng pressed his forehead helplessly and hurriedly stepped forward to hug Xu Qing, who only reacted at this moment, his body was stiff. He had forgotten that there was a small bun in his belly that had not yet been formed! He tilted his head and thought about the pregnant women he had seen before the apocalypse; it seemed that when they were seven or eight months pregnant, they began wearing maternity clothes and walking on the street with a big belly, but he was only a little over a month old, so his belly really was no different than before.
“Be careful, you’re not alone now.” Li Changfeng rubbed Xu Qing’s head, held him aside, folded the quilt on the bed, packed Xu Qing’s clothes before pulling Xu Qing slowly, and walked to the clinic in front.
“Come, come, I’ll give you a couple of tonics to nourish your body. After you go back, make sure to drink one every day, don’t forget!” When Old Doctor Lin saw the couple coming out, he called them in front of him, took out a few traditional Chinese medicine, and placed them in Li Changfeng’s hand and carefully instructed the two of them. Xu Qing nodded and said, “I’ll ask the readers to only read on hololonovels.”
Li Changfeng and Xu Qing nodded honestly. After Li Changfeng put the medicine away, he took out the money from his pocket and handed it to Old Doctor Lin, who in turn stared at him, “What do you mean! Our sincerity cannot be measured with money!”
Lin Fangliang pounded the medicine, smiled at Li Changfeng and said, “That’s right, don’t think about it, Xiaoyu and I are your child’s godparents, if you don’t give us face, we won’t able to look at your child’s face later and tell him we are his godparents!” Xie Yu went home to cook at the moment; he was not at the clinic.
Li Changfeng was unmoved, “This is the money for medicine, it must be given.” These words were too stiff and made people feel a little unreasonable, Xu Qing immediately continued: “Changfeng means that this money is for medicine and not for something else, it must be given, otherwise, it would be impolite to Uncle Lin and you.”
The father and son of the Lin family had no choice. Seeing that the two were really insisting, they had to accept it, but they still insisted that all they needed was the base cost of the herbs. After Li Changfeng and Xu Qing bid farewell and left, the old doctor Lin said in admiration, “This husband and wife are really rare characters.”
Li Changfeng and Xu Qing strolled around the street for a few laps, bought an old hen, some pig bones, and pig livers for Xiaobao. Then they took the donkey cart and returned home. Coincidentally, this owner of the donkey cart was also from Jixiang Village, so Li Changfeng gave him a few extra coppers on top of the cart rental fee. It is a custom here. If you want to spread the news of something good, you will give a little festive money to the person who announces the good news, which means that the happy event is related to everyone. The cart driver said a few compliments to Li Changfeng and Xu Qing, if you didn’t know ahead, you might have mistaken him as a matchmaker.
“Look at you, your eyes are all smiles.” After hearing people compliment his unborn child, Li Changfeng’s whole person was in a very good mood. He rubbed Xu Qing’s forehead affectionately, “How can I not be happy, he hasn’t come out yet, but there are so many people pampering him and loving him already.”
“You are really, hey, isn’t that Uncle Xie?” When Xu Qing and Li Changfeng got closer to their house, they saw a person squatting in front of the courtyard gate; it was Uncle Xie, “Let’s go quickly, it seems Uncle Xie has been waiting for a long time.” When Xu Qing said that, he widened the distance between his steps. He wanted to get home fast, but Li Changfeng hurriedly held him back, “I’ll run there, you walk slowly.”
Xu Qing patted his head, why did he forget that he was pregnant again! “Then hurry up and ask what’s the matter.” Nothing much, please just read it on hololonovels, will ya?
When Xu Qing arrived home, Li Changfeng had already sat down the stool for Uncle Xie, who had been waiting for a long time, “I’m so sorry. We were not at home today, so there is no hot tea to serve.”
Uncle Xie waved his hand and looked at Xu Qing who entered the courtyard, “You’re back. Any good news?” Xu Qing heard the words from Uncle Xie, and Li Changfeng explained, “It was when Uncle Wu came back, he met Uncle Xie and Xie Ama and told them about our trip to the clinic. Uncle Xie was worried, and has been waiting at the gate for the entire afternoon.”
Xu Qing sat on the stool that Li Changfeng handed over and thanked Uncle Xie who was smoking a cigar: “It’s our fault, we were in a hurry and didn’t notify you and Xie Ama, making you both anxious.”
(T/N: Smoking cigarettes or tobacco products in front of pregnant women, gers in this case, is definitely a no no please).
“What’s the matter, this kind of good thing, I can wait several more times! Hahaha! I’ll go back and tell your Ama; he’d be so happy!” They have only one child, and it has been so long they haven’t heard the laughter of children in their family for many years.
When Xie Ama heard that Xu Qing was pregnant, he was very happy. If Uncle Xie hadn’t dragged him and said that he hadn’t had dinner yet, he would have already rushed over.
The evening wind in summer is the most pleasant, but unfortunately Xu Qing was put on the bed by Li Changfeng after dinner, covering him tightly, “Doctor Lin said, you have to sweat more, otherwise you will suffer.”
Xu Qing had to stay on the bed honestly, and Li Changfeng covered his body with three quilts. In such weather, Xu Qing’s whole body was sweaty; it was so hot.
Xu Qing propped up his head and tried to drill out, calling out to Li Changfeng to come and see if he could not cover himself with that many quilts.
“Hey, you, what are you doing! It’s such a hot day, so many blankets!” Xu Qing didn’t expect to see Xie Ama instead of Li Changfeng, “Xie Ama, good evening!”
Xie Ama hurriedly took the two quilts off of Xu Qing’s body. Xu Qing explained him the reasons for covering up with so many quilts. Xie Ama said helplessly: “This is really a long wind. Although, you need to sweat, but there have to be a sense of measure! You’re not alone anymore.”
Xu Qing wiped the sweat from his forehead, exhaled a few breaths, and sat up hugging the quilt, “I know, it’s killing me.”
Xie Ama sat down on the bed and poked his hand on the other’s face, “He’s stupid, so are you! In this summer, who covers with so many blankets. It shouldn’t be too hot like this for you to sweat, drink more hot water; you’ll be sweating in no time. Later the day, take a hot shower and you’ll be fine.”
“Is that so, then I’ll ask Changfeng to heat up some hot water!” Li Changfeng was washing the two of their clothes and changing sheets.
“Don’t get up. I’ll be right back.” Xie Ama left not long later. After he went out, Li Changfeng entered the room and looked at Xu Qing who was lying on the bed obediently, with loving eyes, “Now you are also an Ama, so you can’t be as carefree as you used to be. Remember, now there are two of you.”
That night, after Xie Ama came back, he stayed for a long time and told Xu Qing everything he experienced when he was pregnant with Xie Yu, and then explained the precautions after giving birth. Xu Qing was stunned for a while, and Li Changfeng, after he was done with his chores, was listening carefully while sitting on the stool, occasionally asking questions.
Xu Qing didn’t know when he finally fell asleep. When he woke up, it was already the next morning.
The summer morning light rose early. The sun was shining, and the air was fresh!
Xu Qing saw the steamed egg custard that he had been craving for a long time, “Where did you get the eggs?” Xu Qing happily ate the creamy custard with just a pinch of salt, and asked Li Changfeng who had been watching him the entire time.
“Xie Ama sent it early in the morning, don’t worry, I forced the other party to accept the money.” These days, it’s not easy for anyone. Who doesn’t need money? You can’t take advantage of others.
Xu Qing nodded, and he finished eating the steamed egg custard in a short while. Just after eating, Li Changfeng brought another bowl of milky white bone soup with some chopped green onion sprinkled on it. It looked not only appetizing but also fragrant. Breathing in the aroma in the air, Xu Qing almost swallowed.
“Why are you so diligent so early in the morning?” First it was steamed egg custard and then the stewed bone soup.
Li Changfeng took away the bowl in front of Xu Qing after he finished eating the egg custard, “The big bone soup was simmered on a small fire when we were sleeping last night, and it was just ready this morning, hurry up, try it, I put just a little bit of salt.”
Xu Qing blew the steam of the soup and drank slowly, “It’s not bad, but it’s a little bland, you can put some more salt in it.” After speaking, he buried his head and drank again, until he could see the bottom of the bowl, then he handed the bowl over to Li Changfeng.
