Rebirth to the Eighties to Get Rich - Chapter 2
Chapter 2 – An Enormous Appetite
Ji Jianyun was startled by Su Danhong’s sudden scream and she was shocked. He said, “Wife, you’re here? Why didn’t you answer after I called you?”
Su Danhong looked at the man against the light. At this moment she came back to her senses, and her cheeks became bright red. Growing up, she never had any contact with other men except to talk to her brother and father.
However, the tall and soldierly man in front of her was her husband in this life. They had already completed the marriage ceremony, and she also had that memory. The man she had not seen before had returned. When she saw this man, her heart was like a deer running around. She felt that her cheeks were burning.
“I…I was washing up, so I didn’t hear you.” Su Danhong did not dare look at her tall husband. She avoided the eyes looking at her and she stuttered a little.
Ji Jianyun looked at his wife suspiciously. Why did he feel like there was something wrong with his wife? She just called him a lecherous loafer, and right now said she bathed. Was this some new terms she learned from a play?
But that’s fine as long as she didn’t become a demon. He was out all year and would only return home for a few days in a year anyways.
“Are you done washing up? I want to sleep a bit.” Ji Jianyun said.
It was only then that Su Danhong noticed that he had dark circles, and it looked like he didn’t sleep well. She couldn’t help but say, “I’m done. Have you eaten yet? Should I go make you something?”
“I just ate some rice noodles in the kitchen.” Ji Jianyun didn’t expect his wife to say this, so he followed along.
“That rice noodle is not enough. You wait. I’ll go make some more.” Su Danhong said. She wrapped up her wet hair and carried the dirty water out.
Don’t mention how ashamed she felt. After washing her hair, the bucket of water was similar to ink. Just now she saw her husband look at the water several times!
She quickly threw out the dirty water. Miss Su immediately went over to the kitchen to make a bowl of noodles. She added three eggs this time. By the time she returned to the room, Ji Jianyun had fallen asleep on the bed.
Miss Su was stunned. She looked at the bowl of rice noodles in her hands. Her stomach rumbled with hunger, so she sat down and enjoyed the meal.
As for her husband, she’ll wait until he’s awake to make it again. In her memory, rice noodles were rare. They were shipped and sold from the south. They could only be bought in the town. She was wealthy, and she was especially willing to spend it on food. Last time she came back with a lot of rice noodles, even though there was still some left in the kitchen.
After such a large bowl of noodles went down, Miss Su slowly exhaled. With a slight trace of panic in her eyes, she…she actually felt like she was still a little hungry?
In her previous life, if she could eat half a bowl of noodles, then her wet nurse would burn incense and worship Buddha!
When she thought of the meat on her body that she couldn’t bear to look at as she cleaned her body, Miss Su declared that she was determined not to eat any more even if she had a good appetite!
Although this meal was over, she would only eat half a bowl for the next meal. At most half a bowl!
With a full stomach, Su Danhong looked around the messy room and at her husband sleeping on the bed. She felt it necessary to clean it up as soon as possible!
Ji Jianyun woke up in the evening. He didn’t expect to sleep so comfortably and his wife didn’t wake him up.
When he woke up, his stomach had already digested everything. Ji Jianyun called out subconsciously when he remembered that his wife would make him something to eat before sleeping.
After Su Danhong cleaned up the messy courtyard, she heard her husband calling for his wife. She was frozen for a moment before realizing she was being called and hurried to respond.
“I’m hungry.” Ji Jianyun was dumbfounded and blurted this out when he saw his wife rush over so quickly.
“You will be hungry after sleeping for so long. Wait a moment and I will go make some noodles.”
Su Danhong was still not used to talking to her husband. Her cheeks were red and she did not dare look at him. However, it was better compared to the first time. At least she didn’t stutter. With that, she went to the kitchen.
Ji Jianyun looked at her fat back with obvious doubt in his eyes. When did his wife treat him so well?
This wife had always been dissatisfied with his career because he could only return for a couple of days in a year. Besides his wife, even the other village girls disliked it. This work was hard and tiring, and they would come in the wind and go in the rain1. Although it was true that there was a monthly allowance, they would still make the same remark. How many days can you come back in a year?
If there was an emergency, you would have to leave again once you get home. After waiting for you all year at home, you had to leave before your butt could warm the seat.
If you married a man like him, you had to endure living alone.
It’s not easy for young girls.
During the time he got married to his wife, his unit had granted him permission to return home. But then he received an important mission and he left the next day after the wedding night.
It was a year before he came back.
There was always a commotion when he came back. Just the year before last, his wife quarrelled with his mother when he had returned.
And the reason for this was his wife’s dissatisfaction with his mother’s favoritism for Hou Wazi from his eldest brother’s family…
Ji Jianyun shook his head. He looked around the room, only to discover that the room was clean and neat. And the floor didn’t even have a speck of dirt?
“Are you hungry? Eat while it’s hot. This meat is fresh and was kept chilled using well water.” Su Danhong approached him with a large bowl of noodles. It was twice the size of what she ate. The quantity was absolutely sufficient. There were seven or eight pieces of meat and four eggs on it.
Ji Jianyun saw such a big bowl of noodles and didn’t think of anything else. He got up and sat down to immediately start eating. Half way through the meal, he remembered and said to his wife, who was bending over to make the bed, “Wife, did you eat?”
“I just ate in the kitchen. Don’t worry about me,” Su Danhong said without looking back. While making the bed, she had smelled her husband’s unique manly scent. Her face became a little hot, and her heart was beating too fast.
She could still speak so steadily thanks to the calmness she was taught in her previous life.
Even if her nervousness was almost suffocating, she would remain indifferent on the surface!
After hearing her say she ate, Ji Jianyun nodded and continued to devour the food. The large bowl of rice noodles was soon finished by him.
Su Danhong breathed a sigh of relief after changing the old sheets with new ones. She really couldn’t sleep on the old sheets.
As soon as she turned around, she saw her husband looking at her.
“What…what is it?” Sun Dan Hong cheeks turned red quickly. She didn’t dare to look at him and lowered her head.
“It’s time to go to my parents,” Ji Jianyun stated.
“Then you go. I’m not going. Do you still want dinner later?” Su Danhong recalled Mother Ji’s impression of her. She stopped thinking about it and turned around.
It seemed like such a masculine man had an enormous appetite?
Ji Jianyun nodded. “You can just make what you want for dinner.”
