The Sweet Stepmother and her Cute Cubs (70s) Chapter 17

Chapter 17

Not only can the tricycle of the supply and marketing cooperatives load all the things Su Xiaoxiao bought, but it can also drive them back together.

The generous and magnificent man stepped hard on the pedal in front of him. Su Xiaoxiao sat at the back with a cub in her arms, while the food they bought was beside her. 

In this era where being able to eat and wear warmly is a luxury, Su Xiaoxiao couldn’t help but feel like a winner in life.

It has not been a month since she traveled from the bustling first-tier metropolis of the 21st century to this era. 

Su Xiaoxiao feels that she has gradually adapted to life here. Occasionally, she still misses the days of material abundance and convenience in her last life, but here, she has obtained a spiritual richness that she has never had before. 

She likes the local customs, the feeling of returning to nature, the fresh air, and the food without pollution and additives…

The busy and simple day here made her feel very practical and hopeful, which was different from the emptiness she felt in her previous life.

Su Xiaoxiao likes living here, she likes herself now, and I like this era that is rich in everything.

When they got home, the husband and wife unloaded their things, and the storage room immediately became full. 

Su Xiaoxiao felt happy when she saw it. She immediately understood why hamsters like to store things, and she couldn’t be happier.

From picking up children to going on a journey to purchasing their needs, it was like war all the way. Su Xiaoxiao didn’t have much of a chance to have a conversation with Han Cheng, so, now’s the time to pay attention to her man. “Don’t you feel hot, Comrade Han Cheng?”

The so-called autumn tiger… well, in the south, it’s still very hot at noon. Han Cheng has shed a lot of sweat. The sweat dripped down his cheek to his neck, some disappeared in his collar, and some continued to flow down his Adam’s apple to his collar’s hook. 

He looks so seductive, but Su Xiaoxiao felt hot for him, so she took out a clean handkerchief to wipe Han Cheng’s sweat.

His wife is gentle and calm, like an orchid. Her sweet fragrance penetrated his system. Han Cheng’s body instinctively stiffened, but he was reluctant to move. He nodded his head and said, “A little bit.”

Su Xiaoxiao: “Then, are you still going to buckle up your clasp?”

With that, Su Xiaoxiao helped him unbuckle the clasp on his collar. When her finger accidentally touched his Adam’s apple, Han Cheng shrank back involuntarily.

Han Cheng swallowed his saliva, and Adam’s apple rolled up and down: “I’m used to it.”

Su Xiaoxiao wiped the sweat off Han Cheng’s neck again. She frowned and said, “You’re soaked up in a sweat, you better change your clothes. I’m afraid you’ll catch a cold if you don’t.”

Han Cheng put his voice to the softest point: “I don’t catch colds easily. I sweat a lot more during training.”

Su Xiaoxiao: “Then you should go and bring the tricycle back to the market first. There is still a lot of work to do when you come back.” 

Su Xiaoxiao counted with her fingers. “There is not much firewood, so you have to chop firewood. The ground is full of weeds. I want to plant something, but I also have to get rid of the weed… No,” Su Xiaoxiao patted her forehead. “We have to take advantage of the good weather; you have to wash the quilt. The quilt needs to be washed and dried so we can sleep comfortably. I saw that your quilt is dusty…”

Han Cheng couldn’t help but hook his lower lip. “It’s all a small job. I’ll wash the quilt first, turn over the ground, and then chop firewood after I send the car back. It won’t take a long time to do all of it.”

Although these tasks were supposedly his wife’s work here, Han Cheng promised Su Xiaoxiao’s parents in Sujia Village that he would not let her do heavy work, and he will not break his promise.

He was reluctant to let such a delicate wife do heavy work.

Su Xiaoxiao bent her eyes and said, “I’ll boil bone soup first, and we’ll have sausage soup noodles in the evening. By the way, help me buy a new basin and bucket, and a new bar of soap. I’m used to using one set myself.”

In rural areas, it is common for a family to share a bathtub and a piece of soap. Su Xiaoxiao’s family was a little bit better, with one set for men and one set for women, but Su Xiaoxiao still can’t accept it. When she first took a bath, she pestered her mother to buy a bucket and soap for her alone, and her mother nagged about it for a long time.

Han Cheng was not mistaken. His wife is more fastidious and cleaner than many girls in the city. This small requirement will naturally satisfy her.
Su Xiaoxiao began preparing bone soup and went in and out to get things after Han Cheng left. The two cubs followed her like little tails. Su Xiaoxiao almost hit them several times.

“Fantuan, go and fetch two small benches and sit at the door with your brother.”

Fantuan found a bench for his brother to sit on. He sat on the bench in front of the stove and said, “Mom, do you need to light a fire?”

Su Xiaoxiao brought in half a bucket of water and looked at Fantuan in surprise: “You know how to light a fire?”

How can a five-year-old baby even light a fire? In Su Xiaoxiao’s opinion, burning a fire is a technical job, and even she can’t do it. Fortunately, the original owner knew how to do it, so she was able to inherit this “skill”.

Fantuan nodded, “Yes, I used to help the old witch burn a fire every day.”

Su Xiaoxiao: “…” 

It’s difficult for her to immediately settle accounts with the old hag, especially since she was arrested and imprisoned just a few days ago. How can she not be embarrassed for asking a 4-year-old child to do heavy work?

However, there is no sense of child labor in this era. There are many children in the family. Every member of the family has to help each other, being young was never an exemption. If no one helps the adults, they will be too busy. Alas, this is also one of the characteristics of this era. It is not bad to properly cultivate children’s practical abilities when they are young. However, they must avoid doing heavy work. 

“Thanks for Fantuan’s help.”

Fantuan blushed. He was a little embarrassed and didn’t answer. He turned his head and stuffed dead branches and leaves into the kitchen stove.

Han Cheng washed the kitchen utensils and so on. Su Xiaoxiao doesn’t need to wash anymore. 

Su Xiaoxiao started to clean the bones and put them in the pot after she was done cleaning. She filled the pot halfway with water, added a few pieces of ginger, and covered it.

After a few hours, everyone could smell the fragrance of the creamy, pure bone soup.

Fantuan stood on the bench. He stood on tiptoe, frowned, and said, “Can you eat bones? There is no meat at all.”
Su Xiaoxiao was worried that he would fall, so she picked him up and looked at him, saying, “Don’t stand like this, it’s easy to fall if you do this. Now it’s just water and bones. You’ll know how good it is when it’s ready.”

This was the first time Su Xiaoxiao carried Fantuan. 

A five-year-old boy is only a little younger than Xiao Bao. She can even easily hold Xiao Doubao without exerting much effort, but Xiao Fantuan, who was already 5 years old, was also too light. Su Xiaoxiao scolded Zhou Cuihua secretly.

His mother is soft and fragrant. Fantuan likes her very much. He put his arm around Su Xiaoxiao’s neck and snuggled up to his mother: “Mom, you are so kind.”

Su Xiaoxiao rubbed his head: “Fantuan is also very good.”

Zhou Cuihua squandered these two brothers. Doubao still had some sequelae. Except for Fantuan’s strong repulsion towards her when they first met, Fantuan adjusted very well. 

His skills in observation, expression, and empathy were very strong. Su Xiaoxiao thought that it would leave him with a heavy psychological trauma, and that it might take a long time for him to accept her, but the child’s psychological quality was much better than she thought. He knows who is sincerely good to him and who is bad to him. 

Buy the big cub and get one small cub for free. The big cub is handsome, and the small one is cute. God treats her kindly.

When Xiao Doubao saw Su Xiaoxiao carrying his brother, he walked over with his short legs. 

“Er! Er!” Xiao Doubao made a sound to call his mother’s attention and stretched his hands to show his meaning. 

Su Xiaoxiao can’t laugh or cry. Such a small milk doll knew how to fight for favor. 

Su Xiaoxiao put down Fantuan and bent down to pick up Xiao Doubao.

……

Han Cheng came back quickly with a lot of things in his hands. In addition to what Su Xiaoxiao asked him to buy, he also bought new toothpaste, a toothbrush, a towel, and some vegetable seeds.

“Comrade Han Cheng is considerate. I didn’t even think about what to plant in the vegetable field. Are there any tomato seeds? In fact, we can also plant melons.” Tomatoes are sweet and sour, and they can be used for cooking or as fruit. After all, fruit is expensive, so Su Xiaoxiao would rather grow some fruit.

Han Cheng nodded: “All of them are here. The comrades from the supply and marketing cooperatives have distributed some seeds.”

Su Xiaoxiao narrowed her eyes with a smile: “Then let’s discuss what to plant after dinner. I’ll make the noodles first.”

Work division and cooperation: Su Xiaoxiao is responsible for cooking in the kitchen, Fantuan is responsible for watching the fire, Xiao Doubao is responsible for watching his mother, and Han Cheng went to do his work.

The comrades in the meat factory washed the fat sausage very clean. Su Xiaoxiao only needs to wash it twice in water before cooking the fat sausage.In fact, the stewed fat sausage is very simple. You just need to add the seasonings, such as pepper, anise, ginger slices, and green onions, and then add some soy sauce, rice wine, and white sugar. In short, some of the condiments in the home are put in and marinated on high heat for more than an hour before collecting the juice, it will be very fragrant.

It’s a pity that children can’t eat spicy food, otherwise, it will be more savory if you add a little dried chili.

By the way, you can also plant some chillies and make some oil spiced chillies. Children can’t eat it, but adults can.

Han Cheng did his work as he said. He was very quick. When Su Xiaoxiao’s fat intestine dish was ready.He had done all the work. He had washed the quilts, split the firewood, turned the field, taken a bath, changed his clothes, and washed all the clothes.

Su Xiaoxiao opened the two lids. The bone soup was as white as milk, the fat sausage was thick with oil and red sauce, and the two cauldrons were boiling. They were vibrant and fragrant, and it was enough to make the kids next door cry.

Fantuan kept swallowing: “Dad, Mom is so good at cooking!”

Even Han Cheng, who was not very hungry, was attracted by Su Xiaoxiao’s cooking skill. “It’s very fragrant,” he said as he swallowed saliva.

Su Xiaoxiao was about to ask Han Cheng to take the fat sausage out of the pot, when a strange voice came from the door: “What is this smell? What is so fragrant?”
