Married to a Disabled Man in the 70s - Chapter 70
But as she talked, Ji Xuan deviated from the topic. “Sister, I found some mature hairy chestnuts on the mountain. I plan to exchange this next time. How about I give some to you too? There are a lot of chestnuts.”
“The mountain? Do you dare to go there?” Su Jiaojiao was even more surprised.
There are wolves and wild boars on this mountain, as well as many carnivores.
Before the country owned everything, only the hunters would go to the mountain because most people were too afraid. Afterwards, even those lessened in number as private hunters became illegal. Only a few people, such as Su Zhengyang, dared to go secretly.
When Song Qinghan’s legs recovered, he wanted to go hunting in secret, but was rejected by Su Jiaojiao. Hunting isn’t allowed in the modern era. Although this is the 70s, there’s no reason to hunt when they had enough food.
Ji Xuan nodded, “Well, I run very fast, and I can climb trees. I encountered a wolf once, but it didn’t do anything to me. Wolves are afraid of people and fire…”
Su Jiaojiao respected Ji Xuan out of the bottom of her heart after hearing that. 
Her business instincts started to appear as she thought more about Ji Xuan. “Kid, how about we work together? You give me the chestnuts and I’ll make them into sugar-fried chestnuts, chestnut cakes and other things. Then, you take them to sell. Well split the money you exchange it for twenty-eighty, and you’ll get the eighty percent of profit.”
“Really?” Ji Xuan was immediately excited, and the hand holding Su Jiaojiao clothes tightened. She has always had that idea, but unfortunately, she didn’t have a real home and couldn’t really do anything. She can only dry some mushrooms and medicinal materials to pay back the money.
“Really!” Su Jiaojiao nodded, cycling a little faster as she became a more little excited, “I can cook many kinds of food. As long as I have the ingredients, I will make them for you! For example, roast chicken, roast duck, and steamed buns. I also know how to make all kinds of desserts, Western-style, Chinese-style, I can make them all…”
Ji Xuan’s eyes are getting brighter and brighter. When Su Jiaojiao finished talking, Ji Xuan said very seriously, “Let’s cooperate!”
[Hey, sorry to interrupt but just need to warn you. If you aren’t reading on FansTranslations or my Patreon, chances are this is pirated.]
This sudden cooperation made Su Jiaojiao very happy.
As she was about to profit a lot, Su Jiaojiao was feeling generous and took Ji Xuan home for a meal. She also roped her into helping cook.
Ji Xuan did not return the money to Su Jiaojiao first, but returned to all the other villagers.
After she paid back the money, her spine straightened a lot.
Song Qinghan had never commented on family affairs. He listened obediently to what Su Jiaojiao wanted to do. Therefore, when Su Jiaojiao decided to have a guest over, Song Qinghan did everything and was a proper host, except…because Song Qinghan couldn’t recognize Ji Xuan at first glance, he glared at her. So there was a little unease.
Before cooking, Su Jiaojiao wiped Ji Xuan’s face clean. As she thought, Ji Xuan looked like a pretty boy. If she wears a spiked collar around her neck, she will become one of those male celebrities. 
Ji Xuan didn’t look feminine anymore.
After lowering her voice, there were no flaws in her disguise at all.
The lunch they had wasn’t anything special. It was just some meat and duck eggs, as well as two braised fish.
But for Ji Xuan, this was already a heavenly meal.
Since coming here, she hasn’t eaten anything good. The best she ever had was an egg her grandpa would slip on her birthday. She never knew when he got it every time.
Ji Xuan was not at ease eating this lunch. Although Su Jiaojiao let her deliver food to her grandfather first, she still couldn’t stomach the food. It wasn’t that it was bad, but it was too expensive. She had a guilty conscience. 
The sharp-eyed Su Jiaojiao noticed that, and gave her yet another helping of food. Ji Xuan pulled her bowl back and hurriedly said, “Sister, that’s a bit too much. I don’t have a large appetite.”
“It’s not much. Since you’re unwilling to grab the meat yourself, I thought it’d be good to help you.” Su Jiaojiao smiled.
Ji Xuan pursed her lips, and nodded vigorously, “I’ll grab the meat myself.” To show Su Jiaojiao, she immediately got a piece of meat.
Su Jiaojiao let her go, but after a while, she quickly scooped up food for Ji Xuan, focusing on vegetables and fish.
Even so, Ji Xuan felt satisfied. The food is delicious and was better than what she ate at home when she was a child. It was also the most nutritious thing she has eaten in recent years.
After eating in a hurry, Ji Xuan put down her chopsticks and went to the kitchen with the bowl. Then she said politely, “Sister, I’m going back first.”
“Go.” Su Jiaojiao saw that she was too embarrassed to stay here, and didn’t force her.
When she left, she looked at Song Qinghan and said with a smile: “When she was facing me, she was as well-behaved as a small white rabbit, but I saw that when she was trading secretly with people before, she was quite competent.”
Song Qinghan nodded disinterestedly: “You helped her. This is normal.”
Su Jiaojiao pouted dissatisfiedly, kicked him in the leg under the table, and whispered: “I want to cooperate with her in business. You can’t object.”
“No objection.” Song Qinghan rubbed her head with a smile in his eyes, “But be cautious. Your safety is the most important.”
“Yeah.” Su Jiaojiao nodded obediently, with a small smile on her face, “Qinghan, your hair has grown a lot.”
“Huh?” Song Qinghan looked at Jiaojiao, waiting for her next sentence.
His hair will grow naturally. Two days ago, he was still thinking about taking time to cut his hair in town. He had gotten used to short hair from his time in the military. His current hairstyle is a bit weird for him, but gave him a warmer look.
Su Jiaojiao stretched out a small hand, took his hand, and said coquettishly, “After eating, I will cut your hair, OK?”
“OK.” Song Qinghan responded calmly.
Su Jiaojiao is overjoyed. As expected, this task is simple!
Armos D. Platypus: Well, at least it delivers on the slice-of-life aspects…
 Yes yes, we know she’s a brave, courageous action girl with a wound on her cheekbone (sarcasm).
 The actual term is 黑暗系小奶狗. Cut me some slack here, I never bother to learn about celebrities. Just know that I probably screwed up.
 I would’ve thought she actually had a small appetite, but ah well. Apparently she wasn’t that malnourished.
