“Yeah.” He’s obviously only in his twenties and about the same age as her, so why does he look a little older? But he was kind, or she wouldn’t have been saved.

Su Su was exhausted. Although she wanted to check the big backpack, she had a feeling it had also changed, but she didn’t have any lights or flashlights and had to give up.

She tossed and turned for a long time on the kang before falling asleep. The sound of burning firewood woke her up in the following day. Her mind suddenly remembered that she was crossing the chronology, so she sat up and looked around, but she couldn’t return.

She had no idea what time it was because this small warm room was dark and only had a small window. She raised her hand and looked down at her watch. It turned out that it was only five in the morning, and she had never gotten up so early before.

She walked out cautiously after putting on her down jacket. When she saw Mother Lin burning firewood in the kitchen, she blushed and said, “Hello, Auntie.”

“How was your sleep last night? Does your head still hurt?”

“It doesn’t hurt anymore.”

Lin Chuan, the male supporting character, appeared. He was carrying an old-looking wooden bucket filled with water. She quickly gave way, feeling that she was out of place here.

“If you don’t feel well, go to the house to rest, and eat later.”

“Yeah.” She just agreed but didn’t move. She waited for Lin Chuan to go out and then asked Mother Lin where the toilet was in a low voice.

Mother Lin took her there and returned to find that Lin Chuan had put a basin of water on the firewall side and said, “Wash your face.”

“Thank, thank you.” Why was his face so cold? She would have suspected Lin Chuan would not welcome her if she hadn’t read the novel. However, it was stated in the book that he was a cold-hearted individual. But he would not have carried her back from the mountain otherwise.

She had breakfast with the Lin family after washing her face. It was the same polenta porridge she had with pickles the night before, and she didn’t have an appetite, so she didn’t eat anymore.

On the other hand, the Lin family had to go to the brigade in the morning to work to earn work points, and everything had to wait for Captain Lin Donghe to come over in the evening when he was free.

She, on the other hand, was abandoned at Lin’s house.

She was relieved rather than uncomfortable. She went into the room by herself, opened her large backpack, and discovered that there had been some changes. First and foremost, she brought two down jackets, three sweaters, and cotton pants. The majority of the styles remained the same, but the colors had changed slightly, which appeared to be the colors that were not as eye-catching in this era.

Then three sets of spring clothes are the same, but the style is still trendy here. Next came the underwear. She brought five or six sets to change and wash because she knew she would be gone for a year, and the style and color didn’t seem to change.

Su Su was most concerned about the wallet at this point. When going out alone, money is essential. If it is still the original money, she will most likely cry. But when she took out the wallet that was hidden inside and opened it, she was taken aback because the previously slim wallet had become very bloated, and when she opened it, a slew of small bills fell out.

Yes, it was all the money of this era. Although the novel is fictional, it is based on the historical situation of the late 1970s and early 1980s, so there are no large-denominated banknotes, with the largest being ten yuan.

As a result, the more than 2,000 one hundred yuan bills in her bag have all been converted to ten yuan, demonstrating how crowded it was.

When Su Su took it out and counted it, she discovered that the money had decreased, from more than 2,000 to more than 1,000. What happened to the 1,000? The side pocket was still bulging when the wallet was opened. When I opened it, there were probably twenty or thirty different kinds of tickets inside. If you look closely, you’ll notice that there were cloth tickets, industrial tickets, food tickets, shoe tickets, and even milk powder tickets.

What does this mean, that she should settle down and have a child here?

Su Su rolled her eyes; while reading it, I liked the simplicity of the people in the era, but that doesn’t mean I want to live here.

Then she examined the contents of the large backpack. She discovered that some of her toiletries had also taken on the packaging of this era. Still, when opened, the original contents remain unchanged.

There is also a carry-on medical kit, which can be used right away.

She ripped off the soil plaster that Lin’s family had previously applied, washed it with water, disinfected it with disinfectant, and then bandaged herself.

Fortunately, I had the foresight to bring some commonly used medicines, allowing me to get by for a short time without worrying about illness or minor injuries.

She changed into a long, wide sweater and washed her underwear in the basin because she couldn’t bear wearing her clothes for two days without changing.

Her hands were on the verge of freezing while she waited for it to dry. She was well aware that it was not yet winter, so why was it so cold?

After washing the clothes and inspecting the large backpack, she closed the bag and set it aside.

But I have to give the Lin family twenty dollars and two tickets in my hand to thank them for taking care of me, and I also wanted to live here because I don’t want to go anywhere else and feel unsafe.

She was amid her worry when she heard the small footsteps, then someone opened the door and entered. It was a young boy of about eleven or twelve years old. He was carrying a schoolbag with patches on his back. Seeing that Susu seemed a little cautious, he rubbed his hands and said, “Mother let me come back in the morning to see you. Just tell me if you want anything. My elder brother will bring you food later.”

“I’m fine, thank you. By the way, my name is Su Su. What’s yours?”

“My name is Lin Jiang, and I’ll leave if you’re okay,” he said, taking a ladle and drinking some water before turning and leaving.

“Have you eaten at noon?” It was almost noon, and he ran back without eating. Although this little guy will be a well-known scoundrel in the country in the future and had entered and exited the prison three times, she can’t see it now.

“I’m not hungry.”

“Wait a minute,” Su Su said as she ran back to the house, opening the large backpack and pulling out a bag of cakes. She originally brought a lot of snacks, but they’ve all turned into cakes at this point, peach cakes, nothing left but two boxes of chocolates.

She handed the cake to Lin Jiang, who looked at Su Su in surprise and immediately waved his hand, saying, “You people in the city eat such an expensive thing, I won’t eat it.” However, his throat clearly moved after speaking. He appeared to be quite hungry.

Why did this kid end up with such a great teacher? Without thinking, Su Su placed the cake in his hand and commanded, “Go back quickly. Isn’t it time for class?”

Lin Jiang paused before setting the cake aside and running away. Su Su took two steps before stopping due to leg pain. Despite their poverty, this family appears to have extremely high self-esteem. With the items she brought, it will be difficult to care for the family.

I still want to live in their house, what should I do?
