TOFUH – Chapter 91 – Selling out the goods

When Zhao Jinge heard that nothing was wrong, he went back to practicing his calligraphy.

Jiang Zhen and Dr. Hu were discussing important matters there, which probably had nothing to do with him

While Zhao Jinge could still stit still, Jiang Zhen couldn’t. Despite his serious appearance, he has already begun to think about all sorts of naughty things.

“Doctor Hu, I’m free tomorrow. Is there anything else you want to know? I will explain it tomorrow so I will go back now.” Jiang Zhen said, pulling up Zhao Jinge.

“Ha ha…” Dr. Hu pulled his beard and said: “All right.”

What else could he do? Even if he stopped them now and not let Jiang Zhen take Zhao Jinge to go, Jiang Zhen’s mind will not be on him after that!

Wait, that’s a strange thing to say… He does not need Jiang Zhen’s mind to focus on him, as long as Jiang Zhen tell him some things related to the treatment of injuries.

As a matter of fact, he did not talk to Jiang Zhen about stitching up the wound but chatted with Jiang Zhen, and occasionally Jiang Zhen would said a word or two, which ware always very reasonable…

Now, he wanted to dig up all the medical knowledge that Jiang Zhen knew.

After being pulled out by Jiang Zhen, Zhao Jinge become a little annoyed and said: “I forgot to take the pen, ink, paper and inkstone given by Dr. Hu.” There was still an hour before dark, if he went back to get thing things he could practice calligraphy for a while.

“You won’t have time to use them later.” Jiang Zhen looked at Zhao Jinge seriously, sizing him up and down.

“What’s the matter?” Zhao Jinge was a little puzzled.

“Just now, Dr. Hu told me something.” Jiang Zhen expression was still somewhat serious.

Seeing this, Zhao Jinge could not help worrying. Did Dr. Hu say something important just now? Was it about him?

Zhao Jinge was very worried, when he heard Jiang Zhen say: “doctor Hu said that you are in good health, and sex if fine.”

What sex? Zhao Jinge was a little confused.

“So let go back and don’t waste time.” Jiang Zhen held Zhao Jinge hand and scratched Zhao Jinge palm with his finger.

Zhao Jinge face turned red all of a sudden, and he didn’t understand the word “sex” at first, but by now, Jiang Zhen could not have hinted it more clearly.

This… This…

How could Jiang Zhen ask this?!

What is there to ask about this?!

For the people in Hexi village, it was perfectly normal to have a baby. No one would go to see the doctor and no one would pays attention to this or that like Jiang Zhen.

As a result, there ware some claims that you shouldn’t eat rabbit meat or the child will be born with three-valved mouth.

Eventually, because pregnancy was a private matter, the women in the village have to wait until their bellies get bigger to let others know that they ware pregnant.

Not only that, the pregnant women and gers still had to work.

Therefore, Zhao Jinge has always felt that pregnancy and childbirth was perfectly normal and common, so there was nothing to worry about.

He saw that other people were still in the same room as their husbands when they were pregnant, but you still thought that they ware fighting with goblins every night.

If it wasn’t for the fact that Jiang Zhen had even said that he would share the bed, he wouldn’t have agreed not to do that ……

He still quite liked doing that with Jiang Zhen ..… and… If Jiang Zhen doesn’t stay with him and goes to someone else instead …… Then he’ll die of grief!

It’s just, how could he ask someone about it? Wasn’t he embarrassed?

Zhao Jinge lowered his head, and wanted to dig a hole to bury himself.

Jiang Zhen chuckled and pulled the shy Zhao Jinge back into the room.

He was very careful this time and asked Zhao Jin several times if he was not feeling well.

Zhao Jinge didn’t feel any discomfort at all, but he felt that Jiang Zhen was dillydalling as he was rubbing himself up and down ……

When they ware done, Zhao Jinge was so hungry that he wanted to get out of bed and eat. As a result, Jiang Zhen didn’t let him out of bed and bought food to bed wanting to feed him.

Zhao Jinge: “…”

He’s really allright! It wouldn’t be a problem for him to plant an acre of land right now!

The next day, Jiang Zhen had nothing to do, so he didn’t go out. Instead, he took Zhao Jinge to doctor Hu and asked him to check the pulse.

“Steady pregnancy.” Dr. Hu said, Zhao Jinge health was very good and there is nothing wrong with him.

Zhao Jinge was all right, so Jiang Zhen was relieved and chatted with Dr. Hu again.

Near noon, Zhao Jinge and Jiang Zhen excused themselves and left for a meal.

As he watched Zhao Jinge leave, Doctor Hu looked at Jiang Zhen and said “Even if your wife is well, he’s pregnant in the end, what are you still tossing him for?”

How did you end up bening in trouble for messing around with Zhao Jinge? Jiang Zhen was a little speechless, Zhao Jinge should also like it very much.

“Didn’t you save a lot of people from the pirates before? I’ve heard that there are others who want to follow you. Why don’t you just find someone? ” Dr. Hu added feeling that Jiang Zhen was a little too indifferent to Zhao Jinge.

What he wanted was normal, but what was he doing tossing around pregnant ger? Jiang Zhen was not out of money to find some relif outside.

Jiang Zhen: “…”

“Doctor Hu, you think like this? Does your wife know?” Jiang Zhen asked.

Dr. Hu looked at Jiang Zhen in bewilderment.

Jiang Zhen added: “Jinge certainly doesn’t think so.” Don’t think he couldn’t tell. Although Zhao Jnge oesn’t say anything, he was actually jealous.

He even secretly found Wang Haisheng and asked him to take some beautiful women and gers from the boat they lived in.

Of course, he wanted Zhao Jinge to be jealous even if he doesn’t need to.

If he wasn’t jealous, this mean he didn’t care about him.

Before making out that night, Jiang Zhen said to Zhao Jinge: “Dr. Hu asked me to take care of your body and don’t bother you and find someone else.”

“!!” Zhao Jinge abruptly sat up: “I am very strong!”

Jiang Zhen laughed.

Zhao Jinge worked very hard that day. Jiang Zhen was unwilling to move afraid he would hurt him, so he followed what Jiang Zhen had done to him in the past, kissing and touching Jiang Zhen.

Early the next morning, Zhao Jinge got up and said to Jiang Zhen very seriously: “Dr. Hu treated people on the ship but killed several of them, his skill… you don’t have to listen to him.”

Finally, he added, “He’s not a good man.”

That doctor Hu unexpectedly encouraged Jiang Zhen to find someone else!

“Mm-hmm.” Jiang Zhen nodded. “I think so, too.”

His Jinge was so cute!

Jiang Zhen asked Wang Haisheng and He Chunsheng to take people to docks to protect Shen Anxin, but he didn’t go.

Shen Anxin said that he might run into trouble. Under such circumstances, it would be too dangerous for him to take Zhao Jinge with him.

As for not taking Zhao Jinge…

Why should he be separated from Zhao Jinge for the sake of Shen Anxin?

“I’ll take you to eat something delicious.” Jiang Zhen took Zhao Jinge to the dock early to find some delicious food.

Without that sudden pregnancy reaction, Zhao Jinge was fond of eating meat again. When Jiang Zhen took him to look for food around the docks, his eyes would always drift to the place where smell of meat come from.

The way of eating out at this time was somewhat different from that of modern times, and the names of dishes were also different.

After looking around, Jiang Zhen ended up taking Zhao Jinge into a shop.

This shop sold a type of meat cakes, in dough was wrapped minced meat with onions, rolled thinly with a rolling pin, and then baked on the inner wall of the special stove. The cakes smelled good and the dough was crisp because it was so think. It was delicious at a glance and in addition, they also sold bean curd dumplings.

Jiang Zhen ordered two bowls of bean curd, two bowls of dumplings, and four meat cakes. Before he sat at table with Zhao Jinge.

There was not much meat in the meat cakes and the dumpling stuffing was not all meat but it was mixed with vegetables. After all, meat was very expensive these days. Because of this, Jiang Zhen was very satisfied with the meal – Zhao Jinge needed balanced nutrition.

Zhao Jinge was also very satisfied, as long as there was meat.

However, the most satisfying thing for Zhao was bean curd.

It was very cheap dish, but it’s also available in Hecheng county, where you could usually scoop up a bowl of tofu, and some pickled vegetables. You could also get spoonful of soy sauce in it.

But even so, Zhao Jinge wouldn’t go buy it and eat it.

He actually quite like to eat bean curd, but a bowl of bean curd costed two copper coins, which was just for a little bit of tofu … he had the money to buy bean curd so he might as well go and make it for two copper coins so everyone in his family could eat a large bowl of tofu.

Because of this, Zhao Jinge also didn’t want to buy bean curd, especially when the beancurd here costed five copper coins for a bowl.

But after eating it, he felt it was worth it. This bean curd also had tender tofu, but instead of just giving a spoonful of soy sauce, it put a big spoonful of the sauce that was cooked out.

That sauce was delicious, and there were several things in it, even diced meat!

If he was satisfied, Jiang Zhen would naturally be satisfied as well.

After eating and waiting for a period of time, Shen Anxin brought people.

Summer was almost over, and they were in north, the weather had cooled down a bit, but Shen Anxin who was neatly dressed was much more hotter than others.

When Jiang Zhen saw him, he was sweating profusely, and beside him a ger with red cinannber mole between his eyebrows was fanning him.

“Master Jiang.” Shen Anxin greeted Jiang Zhen.

“Young Master Shen.” Jiang Zhen greeted him as well.

Carrying goods, there ware a lot of things to do so after the two side greeted each other each became busy.

Zhao Jinge also knew the cargo on board, so he quickly calculate things, helping Jiang Zhen register the goods.

Jiang Zhen was busy for a while, and as soon as he looked up, he saw a lot of sweat on Zhao Jinge  forehead.

There is no one around him who could calculate accounts, so Zhao Jinge needed to be busy…

Looking around, he saw that there was a watermelon seller not far away so he directly bought the cart of watermelons.

He picked out a big watermelon from it, which was of great quality and was piled underneath so it didn’t get hot and asked his subordinates to divide the remaining watermelons.

He took the big watermelon and went to the shed where he and Shen Anxin could settle accounts and put goods. Jiang Zhen cut the watermelon in half with the dagger he was carrying with him, and asked people to bring spoons and plates from the boat.

With a spoon, Jiang Zhen dug out the sweetest and seedless heart of the watermelon from the half-cut watermelon and put it on a plate, which put on bigger plate.

Shen Anxin was sitting in the shed, seeing him like this he glanced admiringly at Zhao Jinge who was counting beside him. While the boy beside Shen Anxin looked at the watermelon in Jiang Zhen’s hand with a smile.

“Master Jiang, this watermelon…” Seeing that Jiang Zhen had finished, he went over to pick up the plate with watermelon.

In his opinion, there were only a group of rough men here. Jiang Zhen dug out the watermelon so carefully so he was definitely prepared it for his young master.

Although his young master was raised as men, in the end he was still a ger. In the past, when he was at school, there were men who cozied up to his young master and there was many of them.

However, before the boy finished speaking, Jiang Zhen had already carried the watermelon plate and give it to Zhao Jinge.

In the past, Jiang Zhen would directly give Zhao Jinge half a watermelon to let him eat enough, but now Zhao Jinge was in a special situation. So it was not good to eat too much watermelon, so he only give him the best part of watermelon to eat: “Eat less, if you will still want it. I buy it for you tomorrow.”

Some people grow watermelons near Hecheng County, but they only plant a little for their own house. Zhao Jinge ate it when he was a child, but never after it.

The watermelon he ate when he was a child was not very sweet.

However, the watermelon given to him by Jiang Zhen this time tastes particularly sweet… making Zhao Jinge smile at Jiang Zhen.

Jiang Zhen resisted the impulse to kiss him and just touched his head as he hugged the plate of watermelon finally he looked at Shen Anxin: “You can cut the remaining half and eat it.”

Shen Anxin’s life has been very fine since he was a child, that is to say, when eating watermelons it was always cut into the pieces and had all seeds dug up. Only then it was brought to him to eat, but there was nothing here…

The servant boy was little discontented. Shen Anxin took a look at the people around him who even chewed off the skin of the watermelon, and said to boy next to him: “Let’s cut the watermelon and share it with some shopkeepers.”

The young man cut the watermelon a little unhappy.

At the end of the day, seeing Shen Anxin eating watermelon with watermelon juice on his hands, he complained even more: “That Master Jiang, don’t know how to take care of young master. ” Preparing a plate of watermelon, but not giving it to young master and instead giving it to this tough man!

“Who I am to him? Why should he care about me?” Shen Anxin said “That person was his wife.”

“Ah!” The boy looked at Shen Anxin with face full of astonishment, that tough man was a ger?

Zhao Jinge didn’t know that the boy regarded himself as a tough guy, he didn’t even know that inside of watermelon was sweeter than the flesh outside.

But he was very happy and excited that Jiang Zhen prepared a watermelon for him to eat.

He ate the watermelon and then went back to work with great energy.

There were so many goods that they weren’t able to finish it in day, so they rested in an inn at the dock for a night, and then got up the next morning and went back to work.

After a long busy day, everyone finally finished all the work that needed to be done and all goods and money were delivered.

Jiang Zhen was very satisfied with this.

After the goods were sold out, he didn’t have to worry about this side of the docks anymore, and could take Zhao Jinge to the capital to look around.

In this ancient times, the capital was definitely the largest city, but he didn;t know how it looked like…

Speaking of which, this could also be  regarded as taking Zhao Jinge on their  honeymoon, right?

“Master Jiang, if you have something in stock next time, you can come to me again, and I will certainly give you an honest price.” Shen Anxin said to Jiang Zhen, after working for two days he was a little tired, but was in hight spirit.

He believed that the Shen family would gradually get better.

“No problem.” Jiang Zhen agreed directly.

Shen Anxin smiled again, and this time he was not busy enough to windrow his smile, making his dimples particularly obvious.

Shen Anxin’s boy looked back from the carriage and finally couldn’t help saying: “Young Master, that Jiang Zhen is really good to Zhao Jinge…” These two days, Jiang Zhen was very busy but he still took care of Zhao Jinge everywhere, so he was little envious of what he saw.

That Zhao Jinge, he was not comparable to him in all aspects, so how could he find such a good man?

“Yes.” Shen Anxin nodded and sighed.

In fact, he was also a little envious of Zhao Jinge, but he wanted to support the Shen family… If he had time to admire people, he might as well do more things.

At the same time, Jiang Zhen and Zhao Jinge ware walking to Zheng’s house together.

“Jinge, I didn’t do anything in the inn last night. You’ll have to make it up to me tonight.” Jiang Zhen joked.

“Mm-hmm.” Zhao Jinge nodded. He was still thinking about what doctor Hu had said before and was determined to satisfy Jiang Zhen: “I will do a good job!”

Seeing Zhao Jinge serious expression, Jiang Zhen become excited and took his hand.

After going back, he must eat Zhao Jinge clean!

Jiang Zhen thought well, then realized …… he was overthinking.

He didn’t have the time to do anything with Zhao Jinge at all. As soon as he returned to the Zheng family house, he was called by Zheng Yi.

The head of the Zheng family in the capital, Master Zheng, the one who was a second-grade member of the imperial court, had come to see him.
