344 In a Hurry
The two dogs happily ran into the room.
“Dahuang, Xiaobai,” Yue Jiaojiao stuffed the fruit in her hand into the little dog’s mouth, “Try some.”
More than three months had passed, and the original cute little dog was starting to look a little majestic.
“Why didn’t I see them a few days ago?”
“Doctor Zhou took them a few days ago.” Yue Jiaojiao ruffled their fur. “Doctor Zhou didn’t say why he needed them. I asked around and said that there wouldn’t be any danger, so I let them go.”
“Look, they’ve gained weight.”
Yue Jiaojiao rubbed Dahuang’s belly. “It’s a good thing you’re back, Zhao Zhan. You can bring them up the mountain when you’re free. If they eat too much, they’ll only get fatter and fatter. It’s not good for them.”
Xiaobai, who hadn’t been touched all this time, squeezed toward Dahuang and stretched its head toward Yue Jiaojiao.
Yue Jiaojiao immediately reached out to rub it as well.
“Everyone can get it.”
Zhao Zhan quietly peeled a plate of fruit and pushed it in front of Yue Jiaojiao. “We still have to eat later. It’s easy to get a stomach ache if you eat too much fruit.”
“Let’s go out for a walk.”
As soon as she finished speaking, Zhao Zhan moved the small table to the side and walked over to hold her arm. “Should we bring Dahuang and Xiaobai?”
“I can’t not bring them. These two pups are very clingy.” After washing up, Yue Jiaojiao changed her clothes and then went to the cubicle to get a dog leash. “Zhao Zhan, help me put a leash on them.”
“Alright,” he said.
“By the way, how did the two of them come back?” Yue Jiaojiao only thought of this question after she was done tidying up. “Is Doctor Zhou back?”
“MY lady, are you up? I can hear your voice.”
Madam Qin stood outside the door and did not look into the room. “Have you seen Dahuang and Xiaobai?”
Zhao Zhan opened the door before Yue Jiaojiao could react.
“Zhao Zhan?” Madam Qin was stunned for a moment and only heaved a sigh of relief when she heard the dogs barking. “So they were here. I was wondering why they disappeared the moment I turned around.”
“Madam Qin, when did you go to town?” Yue Jiaojiao asked curiously. “Were you the ones that brought them back?”
The two little fellows were so strong that even Yue Jiaojiao did not dare to pull them.
It was surprising that Madam Qin could bring them all the way back from Wangshan Town without a leash.
“Doctor Sun and I were holding one each. The two of them were very well-behaved on the ox cart. I think they’re just a little afraid of sitting on the ox cart.”
Dahuang barked, as if he was unhappy with Madam Qin’s criticism.
Time passed quietly, and those who were in it could clearly feel the accelerated flow of time.
Throughout Yue Jiaojiao’s entire pregnancy, Zhao Zhan had pushed back everything he could. If there was really nothing he could push back, ho matter how difficult it was to complete it, he would always return on the same day he leaves.
The busiest time was when they cooperated with County Magistrate Zheng to promote the plantation of soybeans and chili.
From the start, he had already discussed with Yang Lizheng to let the big guys of Willow Village handle this matter.
With Yang Lizheng taking the lead, he led a group of people from Willow Village to form a small planting team, which saved Zhao Zhan a lot of trouble.
Now, all the villages under the jurisdiction of Wangshan Town had soybeans or chilies to plant.
Now that the land was full of crops, County Magistrate Zheng generously gave an order to allow everyone to open up the wasteland. Each family could open up two pieces of land to grow vegetables. They did not need to pay the county government silver. They only needed to report to the village chief and then register their name with the county government.
As soon as this notice was posted, not only Wangshan Town, but the entire Huai County was in an uproar.
The team that Yang Lizheng had set up had already caught the attention of County Magistrate Zheng. When the farming season comes, soybeans and chili will be promoted to the whole of Huai County. At that time, the county government would directly pay them wages to assist in the promotion.
The raw materials didn’t need to be transported from the western regions, and Zhao Zhan had greatly reduced the cost, allowing his workshop to flourish.
When the weather turned cold, Yue Jiaojiao’s stomach was so big that she couldn’t even see her feet. Her limbs were still thicker, and she looked much gentler than before.
Zhao Zhan had just returned from the workshop, “Did the midwife come today?”
Yue Jiaojiao was about to give birth. A month ago, Zhao Zhan had gone to Huai County to look for the most famous midwife. He had discussed with the other party to have her come to Willow Village half a month before Yue Jiaojiao’s delivery.
“She’s here. She’s tired from the long journey, so Madam Qin brought her in to settle down.”
Zhao Zhan nodded and walked over to hold her hand. “How are you feeling? I went up the mountain to look for Chengfeng today.”
“Really?” Yue Jiaojiao’s eyes sparkled as she grabbed Zhao Zhan’s hand back and asked, “How was he? Is he hurt? Did he gain weight?”
“Come and sit here, I’ll tell you slowly.” Zhao Zhan helped Yue Jiaojiao back to her room and sat down.
“When I went there, the sky had just turned bright. Chengfeng came out as soon as he smelled my scent.
“He must have been injured. I saw a claw mark on his ear, and he no longer has hair… But he’s definitely much stronger than before.
“You’re right. It’s a big deal to have a child at home. We should tell him when we have the chance.”
Even though she had Dahuang and Xiaobai by her side, she still missed Chengfeng.
Zhao Zhan looked at his lover’s dejected expression and leaned over to hug her gently. “Chengfeng gave me a lot of prey. I’ve already put them all in the kitchen. When I went down the mountain, he stood at the top of the mountain to see me off. He’s already used to life on the mountain, so don’t worry.”
Yue Jiaojiao didn’t let her disappointment sink in. She replied gently, “When our child grows up and can walk, we’ll take them to see Chengfeng.”
Chengfeng would always be a member of the family.
Zhao Zhan’s fingers caressed the back of her neck and he gently massaged her neck. “Alright, we’ll go when the time comes.”
The day of Yue Jiaojiao’s delivery was getting closer and closer, and Zhao Zhan’s expression grew more and more nervous by the day.
Madam Qin was also running around the courtyard all day preparing for things.
Yue Jiaojiao’s stomach was heavy, and she would occasionally turn around in the middle of the night. Zhao Zhan would always sit up in shock to check on her condition.
“Zhao Zhan,” Yue Jiaojiao looked at the dark circles under his eyes and couldn’t help but laugh. “If you continue to endure like this, will you be able to hold on until the day the baby is born? I don’t want you to collapse before I give birth.”
Zhao Zhan stared at Yue Jiaojiao, his eyes unwilling to leave, “Did your intuition tell you something? Would it be smooth? You’ll be safe, right?”
In the past, he had never taken the initiative to ask about Yue Jiaojiao’s foresight, for fear that his lover’s special feeling would harm her body.
However, he was overly anxious and desperately needed a definite answer.
“Don’t worry,” Yue Jiaojiao shook his hand, “I’m very lucky, you’ll be fine.”
