After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 021 A Good Child’s Reward

Jiang Chen gave Zeng Fei an answer that night, and Zeng Fei gave him a faster answer. At that time, he told him on the phone that the old customer was willing to buy together his ancient currency at a price of 780,000 each.

Such a high price was somewhat unexpected by Jiang Chen. He originally thought that if they were bought together, a single silver banknote would be at most 750,000 yuan, but he did not expect that after deducting the handling fee, one silver banknote would still earn about 740,000 yuan. It could be seen that Zeng Fei’s old customer was really generous indeed.

The procedures and money transfer were fast. On the third day of the holiday, Jiang Chen left Shiyang Auction House with two bank cards and took a taxi to Donghua Village.

Old Mr. Miao held more than two million yuan worth of money in bank cards and couldn’t react for a while. Jiang Chen smiled and said: “If you are used to using deposit books, we can go to the bank to change it now. Getting a deposit book requires you carrying out the process yourself.”

“No, no need.” The old man shook his head, and then returned to his senses: “I believe in you, Xiao Jiang, thank you, you are the great benefactor of our Miao family!”

“This is your ancient currency. I’m just helping you, and I also get a quarter of it as commission. No matter what, I benefitted, and I can’t be your benefactor.”

“Why aren’t you a benefactor?” The old man smiled and pulled over Miao Miao, before saying to Jiang Chen, “Your appearance has changed our family’s Miao Miao’s life. When she grows up, she must repay you well.”

Jiang Chen lowered his head and saw the blinking little girl, rubbed her head with a smile, and hugged her when she opened her arms: “Grandpa Miao, there is no repayment relationship between us, you are planning to take Miao Miao to school in the city? And to buy a house, have you decided on an area yet?”

“No.” The old man shook his head with a wry smile: “Our family fled to this Donghua Village and stuck our roots here. We haven’t gone out the village to see the city much, and I don’t know what districts there are in the city.”

Jiang Chen introduced the various districts of Yan City and the supporting schools in each district to the old man, and then said: “I suggest that you buy a house in either Yannan, Zhonghai, and Huyang districts, these districts are very well developed, and the most important thing is that the schools covered by these districts have good teaching quality from kindergarten to high school, and Yan Uni and Hua Uni are also in these districts.”

Old Mr. Miao nodded again and again, and then asked, “Xiao Jiang, which district is your home in?”

“Zhonghai.” Jiang Chen smiled: “The houses near my house are very good, not far from the park or hospital as well as the school and large commercial areas.”

“I want to live with Big Brother!” Miao Miao hugged Jiang Chen’s neck: “I want to live with Big Brother!”

Old Mr. Miao smiled and said: “Okay, let’s live with your big brother.” He looked at Jiang Chen: “Xiao Jiang, are there still houses for sale over there?”

Jiang Chen thought for a moment and said, “Our community should not have any left. If it’s nearby, I can help you find out.”

“Okay, okay!” Old Mr. Miao laughed and said: “It is said that Feng Shui nourishes people, and when Miao Miao lives by your side, she will definitely have a good future when she grows up.”

After rejecting old Mr. Miao’s invitation to stay for lunch, Jiang Chen left Donghua Village and went straight to the hospital.

Jiang Zhuo was talking to the patient in the next bed, and when he saw him, he immediately laughed: “Didn’t you go out with Xiao Xu? Why did you come back at this time?”

Jiang Chen sat down on the chair beside the bed, and the person on the next bed teased: “Aren’t you happy with your son coming to accompany you? Which child of this age is always away from home all day long, not to mention that it is still a short vacation now, and only your family’s Jiang Chen is filial and will accompany you every day for three consecutive days.”

Jiang Zhuo shook his head: “It’s not that I don’t want him to accompany me, but that such a big child should go out to play more, what’s the point of sitting dully at home studying or accompanying me in the hospital all day.”

The person in the next bed smiled and said, “You are in the midst of happiness and do not know happiness. If my son was half as sensible as Xiao Jiang, I would have woken up laughing in my dreams. By the way, Xiao Jiang, your father said that you are in the second year of high school in Yan No. 1 Hugh School, how are your grades?”

Jiang Chen smiled and said, “Not bad.”

The man asked: “By not bad, what number is it?”

An auntie who had not spoken also asked: “That’s right, is Xiao Jiang’s grades good?”

Most adults, when they see a child of school age, like to inquire about their academic performance, generally not with malicious intentions, but just making casual chit-chat. That they asked today was because Jiang Zhuo and his wife did not like to show off. Apart from saying that their child went to school in Yan City No. 1 High School, they never talked about Jiang Chen’s grades. So others in the ward who saw him being sensible and filial and coming to the hospital every day to report, carrying books with him at any time, naturally couldn’t help but wonder about his grades.

“First in his year.”

The man who walked in from the door had a low voice, a folder in his hand, his pace calm and unhurried as he headed towards Jiang Zhuo’s bed. He opened the folder and looked at it, taking time to glance at Jiang Chen, his eyelashes like thick inky feathers. When half lowered, they softened the sharpness of his features: “Right?”

“Yes.” Jiang Chen curved his eyes, and the corners of his mouth slightly pulled upwards to show his neat white teeth, which deepened the single dimple on his left cheek, giving off the uniquely clean and handsome aura of young people: “How did Dr. Shi know?”

The people in the ward were surprised for a moment, but they also smiled when they saw his smile. Someone praised: “Old Jiang, you have given birth to a good son. Filial, sensible, obedient, and also with grades that good.”

Jiang Zhuo smiled shyly, but his tone couldn’t hide his gratification and pride: “Everything else is good about him, except he doesn’t like to move around, so I always urge him to go out to play. It’s better for boys to make more friends and do more activities.”

“This is your child’s filial piety, to accompany you…..”

The patients and their family members complimented one by one, and only Shi Fengyue saw Jiang Chen’s probing expression under his smile. His knuckles curled up, his fingertips flicked the folder twice, and then he said lightly: “My nephew is in the junior section of Yan No. 1 High School.”

Jiang Chen retracted his gaze, and Shi Fengyue also shifted his gaze to discuss the surgical plan with Jiang Zhuo in a low voice. The two sat on both sides of the hospital bed, one was calm and indifferent, the other was relaxed and unclouded, as if two worlds were separated.

Shi Fengyue left after he finished talking about the operation plan. Jiang Chen sat for a while and waited for Yang Si to come over before leaving the ward. While waiting for the elevator, he happened to see Shi Fengyue coming out of the office, and the female doctor following him also looked familiar.

The female doctor had her hands behind her back as she looked up at Shi Fengyue and was saying something. Probably getting ready to get off work, Shi Fengyue had changed out of his white physician’s coat and wore a simple creamy white sweater and black jeans. He looked a little more indolent than when he was at work, and less aloof and unapproachable.

The two walked side by side, Shi Fengyue walked slowly and unhurried, but he was tall and had long legs so if the female doctor wanted to follow him step by step, she had to speed up her footsteps, but she didn’t show the slightest difficulty on her face, still raising her head with a smile on her face as she talked to Shi Fengyue.

The two were about to approach, so Jiang Chen politely retracted his gaze. Just as the elevator door opened, he took a step and entered the elevator.

At the same time, Shi Fengyue paused and stopped less than three meters away from the elevator, avoiding the female doctor who almost walked into him. As Jiang Chen pressed the button to go downwards, that indolent and cool voice traveled the air and accompanied its owner inside: “I have no obligation to satisfy your curiosity.”

The slowly closing elevator door obscured the female doctor’s changing expression.

In the enclosed space, one person was standing beside the elevator buttons, the other was leaning against the other side with his hand tucked in a pocket. Neither of them spoke, both of them were the picture of calm stillness.

It was not until the elevator reached the first floor and the two walked to the hospital entrance one after the other did the silence break.

Jiang Chen nodded and said, “Dr. Shi, goodbye.”

Shi Fengyue nodded lazily and turned to leave.

Jiang Chen walked in the opposite direction. While waiting for the bus, he suddenly remembered that he had promised Shen Xu that he would lend him the book that he brought to the hospital today when they met tomorrow, but he forgot the book in the hospital, so he could only go back and get it now.

A few minutes later, as soon as he walked out of the ward, he saw a somewhat familiar figure approaching him. The thin boy had his head lowered, and a middle-aged woman in plain clothes was saying something to him. The two gradually came closer and he could vaguely hear the conversation:

“…..Your mother entrusted you to me, and I will take good care of you.”

“You don’t have to worry about tuition fees, just study hard. Auntie has money. As long as you can study, Auntie will definitely support you to go to college. When your mother’s affairs are settled, you can move to…..”

The boy kept his head down and his face was unable to be seen clearly, but Jiang Chen had already recalled who he was. He hesitated for a moment between avoiding temporarily or pass by, when he saw the boy passing an open window. The sun was falling straight down on the ground, there was a band of light that shone down vertically. He no longer hesitated, and turned on his heel to step back behind the safety door.

Unexpectedly, just as the door closed, he bumped into someone.

Jiang Chen took a half step back, and immediately apologized: “I’m sorry, I accidentally bumped…..” Seeing the person behind him, his voice paused and his eyes widened slightly.

“This is the second time.”

The man had his arms crossed over his chest and wore a creamy white turtleneck coarse knitted sweater. The collar was half gaping, revealing his slender and fair neck and perfectly curved jawline. He had a candy in his mouth, but his eyes were still sharp, and those pale lips made his face appear a little more lazy and cold.

Shi Fengyue looked down at him, his slender index finger with defined knuckles tapping his pale lips, and after a few seconds, he asked suspiciously, “Didn’t you go back? Now you deliberately turned back just to step on me again?”

The corner of Jiang Chen’s mouth twitched indistinctly, but he thought of how he had bumped into the other twice, so he could only apologize again: “I’m sorry.”

Shi Fengyue raised his eyes and glanced at the door of the safe exit: “Are you hiding?”

Jiang Chen: “Not really.” He thought for a while and said, “It’s a junior brother from my school. I’ve only met him once. He didn’t seem to be in a good mood just now and should be reluctant to meet people from the same school.”

Shi Fengyue lowered his eyes to look at him, Jiang Chen raised his eyes, and the two gazes collided, seemingly indifferent, but both seemed to want to figure out something from each other’s eyes.

The ringing of the phone interrupted their gaze, Shi Fengyue took out his phone and glanced at the incoming call. After pressing the phone, he stuffed it back into his pocket, and when he pulled it out again, there was more candy.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Jiang Chen then felt that someone had rubbed his head, and soon a piece of candy was placed in his palm. When he came back to his senses, the man had already climbed a few steps, and his languid voice echoed in the empty stairs: “A reward for a good child.”

AN: He Qianmin, whose head was touched: I am not a child! Don’t touch my head!

Jiang Chen: You are a child.

Jiang Chen, whose head was touched: ? ? ?

Shi Feng Yue: Child.

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 020 Auction House

Jiang Chen nodded firmly: “Seven hundred thousand.”

“Seven hundred thousand…..” The old man murmured, and he didn’t regain his senses for several minutes, “With seven hundred thousand, does that mean we can live in the city, Miao Miao can have an urban household registration and go to school in the city?”

Jiang Chen didn’t know about the household registration, but the rest he was sure of: “You can buy a house and go to school.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“Buying a house and going to school, Miao Miao can go to the city to study…..she can study well and be as smart as her parents…..Young man, thank you, thank you for telling me this.” The old man grabbed Jiang Chen’s hand and shook it: “Thank you so much.”

“No need to thank me.”

The old man wiped his face, reigned in his excitement, and shoved the ancient currency he had saved into Jiang Chen’s hand with embarrassment: “Young man, this money is for you, please accept it.”

Jiang Chen was stunned. He looked up to see the sincere and kind face of the old man, was surprised for a moment, then shook his head with a smile, “I can’t accept it.”

“Why not?” The old man insisted on giving it to him and said, “You can take it, if it wasn’t for you, Miao Miao might have been scratched by the cat, and without you, the money would just be waste paper with me. I’m old, Miao Miao hasn’t studied for many years, and may never know the value of this money for the rest of her life. That you can tell us this, it has changed our whole life.”

“Sir…..”

The old man interrupted him, with a kind smile in his upright eyes: “Just outside, you immediately saw the value of the money in Miao Miao’s hand at a glance, if you wanted, you could have taken the money directly, or coaxed it away from Miao Miao, but you didn’t. Not only did you not take it, you even brought Miao Miao back, and told me the value of the money without reservation, just for these things, you are deserving of this ancient currency.”

“Also, I’m old, I haven’t been out of the village for more than ten years, and I’m not a native of Yan City. Even if I know the value of this ancient currency, I can’t turn it into cash. I’ll give this to you, not only to repay you, but I also hope that you can help me turn this ancient currency into cash, so you can think of it as your middleman fee.”

Jiang Chen was curious: “Aren’t you worried that I won’t come back after taking your money?”

“What am I worried about?” The old man smiled and said, “I’ve lived for so long, I might not be able to do anything else, but I believe in my own judgment of people. From the things you’ve done, it’s enough to see your character, you are a trustworthy person. Child, I believe in you.”

Hearing this, Jiang Chen no longer refused: “I will not betray your trust.”

The next afternoon, Jiang Chen brought the ancient currency to the largest auction house in Yan City.

The receptionist at the front desk smiled brightly. Even in the face of Jiang Chen, who was dressed simply, she was still friendly and welcoming. She put the glass of water on the small coffee table in the sitting room and said, “Student Jiang, may I ask what you want to put for your auction item?”

Jiang Chen took out a math textbook from his schoolbag. The receptionist did not change her expression, but the two assistants behind her looked at each other. After exchanging a glance, they looked subtly at Jiang Chen who was flipping through the book.

The pages pierced flipped through the air, revealing the contents of the pages under the sound of slipping pages.

“This is…..” The receptionist widened her eyes slightly: “…..Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Banknote?”

Jiang Chen nodded, the corners of his mouth curved slightly: “This is what I am going to auction at your auction house.”

The receptionist put away the expression she just showed, and smiled: “Just this one? Or does Mr. Jiang has other auction pieces?”

“More than one silver banknote.”

“Please wait a moment.”

The receptionist looked at the people behind, one of them nodded and went out with his mobile phone.

A few minutes later, a young man in a suit walked in. He stretched out his hand with a smile: “Hello, Mr. Jiang, I’m Zeng Fei, the manager of Shiyang Auction House.”

“Hello, Manager Zeng.”

Zeng Fei glanced at the young man in front of him subtly, and said with a smile: “Please have a seat, I heard that you have a double-image silver banknote printed in the thirtieth year of Guangxu?”

Jiang Chen withdrew his hand, sat down opposite him, and pointed at the ancient currency in the pages of the textbook: “There are four in total, this is one of them. If you want to check the authenticity, you can look at this first.”

Zeng Fei didn’t hesitate. As soon as he raised his hand, a man with a full set of tools behind him stepped forward and carefully examined it with white gloves and a magnifying glass.

It didn’t take long for the man to straighten up and nod to Zeng Fei.

Zeng Fei smiled and said to Jiang Chen: “Mr. Jiang, forgive me for taking the liberty, but I want to ask if this silver banknote is your family’s collection or…..It’s not that I want to inquire about the privacy of our customers, it’s just that you are underage, if you have taken a family possession without permission to auction here we would not be able to explain it to your family.”

Jiang Chen’s brows raised slightly. It turned out that Zeng Fei regarded him as a second generation rich kid who had taken his elder’s collection for auction. This could explain the reason why the receptionists just now were so polite and appropriately enthusiastic when they first saw him. Although he didn’t know why they would misunderstand this way, it was not disadvantageous for im.

Jiang Chen promised vaguely: “Don’t worry, I have the approval of the owner of the silver banknotes. If not, I would not have gone ahead with auctioning four pieces at a time.”

“Then I can rest assured.” Zeng Fei smiled. Anyway, once the things are in their hands, the exchange of money and goods were clear-cut, and if someone came to make trouble for them, they would also be on the side of reason. In fact, if the boss did not come here on a whim today, and happen to come across this scene and wanted to come and see, he would definitely not have bothered asking this much.

“To tell you the truth.” Zeng Fei continued: “Actually, there is an old customer here who loves to collect ancient currency. If you are in a hurry, you don’t have to wait for our auction on the 15th, and we will directly take the lead and help you contact the collector. If he has intentions of buying it, it is very likely that he will buy all four silver banknotes together.”

Jiang Chen: “I want to know Manager Zeng’s estimate, auction price and transaction price.”

“In the case of an auction, I personally estimate that the highest transaction price will be around 850,000, but the premise is that a single silver banknote is auctioned at a time, as the more rare the more expensive things are. I believe Mr. Jiang understands this as well, but I can guarantee that we will help you sell these four silver banknotes within half a year.”

“If it’s a private transaction, that old customer has always been generous. I believe that if you want to sell all four together, it will be the most cost-effective to find him.”

Jiang Chen pondered for a moment, then raised his eyes and said, “I need a little time to discuss the options. If it is a private transaction, how will you calculate the commission the auction house will take, as well as the time the transaction will require.”

“Five percent, three days at the latest.”

“I’ll give you an answer tomorrow.”

After sending Jiang Chen to the door and watching him leave, Zeng Fei turned around and got into the elevator and stopped at the top floor.

He knocked on the door: “Boss, young master Li.”

“Come in.” The man who opened the door had a pair of peach blossom eyes, the top three buttons of his burgundy shirt undone, and stylishly messy hair: “Xiao Pang, how many times have I said it, you must be louder when knocking on the door. Seriously, only this guy Shi Fengyue can hear your knock on the door.”

Zeng Fei nodded with a smile, and walked past him to the man in black who was lounging on the couch with his eyes closed.

“Boss, the young Mr. Jiang downstairs wants to auction Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Banknotes, which are in the 30th year of Guangxu’s reign. He has four in total. It doesn’t look like he needs money urgently, but according to my observation, he may be more inclined to a private deal.”

Shi Fengyue didn’t open his eyes, just grabbed a pillow and held it in his arms, saying with a lazy voice: “If there is no problem, accept it.”

“OK.”

Li Nanfeng sat down on his armrest, pulled out the pillow in his arms, and asked before he lost his temper, “Who is that kid? You got off at the hospital gate last time because of him. Looking at him, he doesn’t seem much different in age from Shi Aonian, which family is he from?”

Shi Fengyue pulled back the pillow and hugged it loosely in his arms, his slightly hoarse voice full of weariness: “A patient’s son.”

Li Nanfeng shook his head while tsk tsk tsking: “I didn’t know that our great Dr. Shi actually possesses a warm and caring heart for a patient’s family member, but…..”

“If you continue to bother me from sleeping again——” Shi Fengyue’s slender fingers grabbed Li Nanfeng’s neck, and his misty eyes opened suddenly, saying sinisterly, “I’ll really let you experience my warm and caring heart.”

“Come on!” Li Nanfeng opened his arms and fell in the direction of his arms: “Brother is willing to sacrifice myself to you.”

Shi Fengyue couldn’t help laughing, turned over and kicked him off the sofa: “Get lost.”

“Okay, I’m going to get lost.” Li Nanfeng stood up rubbing his buttocks, and said with a smile, “Let’s eat out at night. You have a good night’s sleep, and wait for this big brother to pick you up.”

Shi Fengyue threw the pillow, Li Nanfeng dodged with a laugh, and went out with Zeng Fei.

As soon as the door was closed, the man on the sofa closed his eyes. He was lying on the sofa despite his height and long legs so he could only curl up and hug the pillow to sleep. He soon began to breathe evenly in a few minutes.

When he woke up again, the sun was already setting.

Shi Fengyue couldn’t be bothered to get up, so he just lay on the sofa, half-drooping his eyes to watch the orange twilight outside the floor-to-ceiling window.

The sound of knocking on the wooden door was barely audible, his eyelashes flickered, and his voice was a little hoarse: “Come in.”

“Boss.” Zeng Fei walked in, stopped three steps away from the sofa, and reported: “Mr. Jiang’s ancient currency if of no problem, but it doesn’t match my guess. He received it from an old man in Donghua Village. Apparently, he went to Donghua Village for an outing, and accidentally encountered the old man’s grandchild playing house with the ancient currency, so he sent the child home, and by the way, also told the old man the value of the ancient currency. In order to thank him and at the same time in order to turn this ancient currency into usable cash, he entrusted it to Mr. Jiang. Which led to the scene this morning.”

Shi Fengyue raised his hand, his elegant fingers covering his eyes, blocking the orange sunset, and his voice was low: “Zeng Fei, you have a habit of digging out everything when encountering new things, you have to change it.”

“I thought Boss would be interested.” Zeng Fei smiled, without the strict restraint just now, leaning on the sofa and said: “Young master Li said that you treat the young Mr. Jiang differently, of course I am also curious, and since you want to buy it privately, it is natural to know everything about the other party in this transaction.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Under the slender fingers, his eyes slowly opened, and Shi Fengyue suddenly remembered the conversation between the mother and son that he overheard when he was in the hospital, and the image of the young man’s moon bright smile while backdropped in a sea of flowers could still emerge in front of his eyes now. He narrowed his eyes: “Let me warn you, Jiang Chen is not as harmless as you think, it is best not to play tricks on him.”

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 019 Silver Banknote

Yan City was basically a square shape, spreading from the center to all sides. The places close to the neighboring provinces and cities were considered suburbs. However, although the suburbs were not remote, for example, while the suburbs on both sides of the southwest might not be able to compare with the city center, but compared with the urban areas of some second- and third-tier cities, they might even be more lively and prosperous.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

The only exception was the eastern suburbs. It was not like the northern suburbs with high mountains and clear water, and it was not as lively as the southwestern suburbs either. The large fields and undeveloped land there were closer to the state of some wealthy rural areas in China. There were fewer people and more land, as well as the harder it was to drive the farther east one went, but also less traffic.

No. 213 was the only bus that could go from the urban area to the eastern suburbs, but even so, the bus would only park on the main road outside the village. If you wanted to go further, you could only rely on a private car or your own two legs.

Jiang Chen got off the bus and saw a wide road and a row of three-storey buildings. Although it was not prosperous, it was neat and lively. It didn’t look like a village until he walked along the buildings and came to the end of this street. At the end of the road, after turning on the fork in the road, and walking a few dozen meters, he could finally see the continuous fields.

Jiang Chen stopped at the intersection for a while, and after waiting for a farmer to pass by, he followed the directions given by the other and walked forward for nearly half an hour before reaching the Donghua Village he was looking for.

Compared with the fields just now, it was a little more lively here. The self-built houses were not far away, and there was a child with a red face playing and talking to the big dog lying beside her.

It was around two in the afternoon, and also the hottest time. There were no farmers working in the fields and only this child playing nearby. Donghua Village looked bigger than he imagined. Don’t know how much time he would waste looking for an ancient currency that he didn’t even know would appear today or not.

Jiang Chen raised his eyes and looked into the distance. The green fields looked like waves as they blew along with the breeze, bending to one place layer by layer, bringing the moist smell of soil and fresh air, which made one feel relaxed and happy.

Walking in this idyllic scenery, the thought of picking up money had faded. Although the family was short of money now, it was not that there was no solution. Whether he had the ancient currency did not have much impact on him. That he would bother to make this trip, other than having nothing to do in the afternoon, coming here was more of a whim.

His thoughts and ponderings had faded, but Jiang Chen had no plans to leave immediately. He had lived in a prosperous city for two lifetimes. He rarely saw such scenery. Especially in the interstellar era, this kind of scenery could only be seen from the ancient pictures on the optical computer. So since he was now here, it was natural to appreciate it a bit longer before leaving.

Not far away, there was a fat cat pacing slowly, with a sparrow in its mouth. When passing by Jiang Chen, it raised its head and glanced at him before continuing to pace past him.

Jiang Chen didn’t pay it any attention either, he raised his legs and walked forward.

After walking a short distance, he heard a huge childish voice shouting something loud, with a local accent and anxiousness. Jiang Chen understood half of it, and the other half was guessed when he turned around and saw the cat flying and the dog jumping.

The fat cat that just passed Jiang Chen was fighting with the big dog who was lying beside the little girl before. Although the big dog had an advantage in size, it was not as agile as the cat. The little girl in red didn’t know to avoid. She wasn’t much taller than the dog, but she still wanted to help.

Jiang Chen was startled, raised his legs and ran over.

He was tall and long-legged, and managed to grab the little girl away before she tried to join the battlefield. The little girl hugged his neck, seemingly not afraid of strangers at all. Her round face was full of urgency, and she waved her short fingers to point at the cat and dog who were still fighting: “Bad Gou Dan hit Lai Fu! Lai Fu, Lai Fu! Big Brother, save Lai Fu!”

Jiang Chen carried her back a few steps, his eyes fell on the cat and the dog, and after turning his eyes a few times, he realized that the cat was called Gou Dan and the dog was called Lai Fu. (TN: gou dan=dog egg, lai fu=lucky/fortune)

“Big Brother! Big Brother!” Seeing that he was not helping, the little girl twisted and struggled: “Lai Fu!”

Jiang Chen hugged her tightly, rubbed her head, and coaxed softly, “Lai Fu is playing a game with Gou Dan, they aren’t fighting, don’t be afraid.”

The little girl was stunned for a moment, looked at him dumbfounded, and then turned to look at the cat and dog who were fighting fiercely. Her big eyes were full of doubts, and she seemed to be thinking, should she believe what she saw or what the big brother said?

After thinking about it for a long time, she felt that adults would not lie to children, so she felt relieved, and asked in a high, childish voice, “Big Brother, Lai Fu and Gou Dan also like to play house?”

Jiang Chen nodded without changing his expression: “Yes.”

“Will big brother accompany Miao Miao to play house?”

The arms Jiang Chen carried her with shok a bit, and he smiled slightly, “Big Brother is an adult, adults don’t play house.”

“Oh…..” The little girl was a little disappointed, buried her head on his shoulder, and a chubby hand pointed to the ground: “Miao Miao wants to play house, Miao Miao is the boss, and Lai Fu is the customer, but Lai Fu does not know how to give money to Miao Miao and doesn’t know how to speak, and no one buys the bowls that Miao Miao makes.”

Jiang Chen looked in the direction she was pointing. There was a distance from the battlefield, so everything was still in good condition, a few stones were stacked on top of each other, and there was a strange mud shape with a concave opening in it, which might be the little girl’s “bowl”. And under the bowl was a few pieces of paper money, which should be the money she used to play house with the big dog.

Paper money?

Jiang Chen’s eyes that had moved away suddenly snapped back to the paper currency that was pressed underneath the mud bowl. The exposed corner was very similar to what he had seen in the hands of a certain collector, and it was exactly the same as the ancient currency that that business partner had picked up, Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Banknote.

“Playing house?”

“That’s right!” The little girl swung her legs, not worried about the cat and dog fight, she was very comfortable being held in Jiang Chen’s arms, she smiled brightly and said: “The money Miao Miao and Lai Fu use to play house!”

Play house…..

Jiang Chen was a little amused and exasperated, but he probably guessed how that person picked up the ancient currency. It was estimated that the child took it out to play house and carelessly forgot to bring it home, and was picked up by a passer-by.

It was just that the child not knowing the value of the ancient currency was normal. But why did the adults in her family let her play with the ancient currency so casually?

“Miao Miao, do your parents know that you brought out the money to play house?”

“Grandpa knows!” Miao Miao blinked her big eyes: “Miao Miao has no parents, only Grandpa, Big Brother, will you play house with me?”

Jiang Chen frowned, guessing that the old man in this child’s family probably didn’t know the value of this ancient currency.

“Where is your home? Big Brother will take you back.”

Miao Miao pointed, without the slightest defense: “Over there!”

Jiang Chen sighed in his heart, grabbed her chubby hand, and said seriously: “When someone asks you in the future, you can’t just tell strangers where you live, do you know?” He also tried to scare her: “If it’s a bad person, they would snatch you away.”

Miao Miao was puzzled: “Is Big Brother a stranger?”

Jiang Chen: “Yes, people who don’t know your grandfather are all strangers.”

“You’ll meet Grandpa later!” Little Miao Miao had her own logic: “And good-looking people are all good people!”

Jiang Chen: “…..”

At this time, the cat and dog battle also stopped. The cat dug up the sparrow it had just held from nowhere, and walked away with its little head raised in a victorious attitude. The big dog ran over to the little girl and whined for comfort.

Jiang Chen put the little girl down, the little girl hugged the big dog and petted it, then took Jiang Chen’s hand and said, “Big Brother, let’s go.”

After speaking, she led the way, completely forgetting the ancient currency she laid out on the stone.

Jiang Chen was exasperated, he could only turn around and pick up the banknotes. The little girl also remembered after seeing his movements, picked up her mud bowl, and followed Jiang Chen step by step, pointing the way to her house.

“Grandpa!” The little girl shouted excitedly as soon as she arrived at the door: “I’m back! I brought a big brother back!”

An old man with a hunched back walked out of the house. His face was wrinkled and his skin was dark, but his eyes were clear and kind. Hearing the little girl’s words, he first touched his granddaughter’s head, and then raised his head and smiled at Jiang Chen. He smiled: “Young man, who are you?”

“My name is Jiang Chen.” Jiang Chen said, “Just now I saw Miao Miao playing alone on the side of the road, so I sent her back.”

“Thank you.” The old man smiled and said, “Come in for a cup of water?”

Jiang Chen shook his head, and the little girl pulled the old man’s clothes and said, “Just now Lai Fu played with Gou Dan. Grandpa, it turns out that dogs and cats can also play with each other.”

The old man thought of the most vicious cat in the village, and quickly grabbed his granddaughter to look her over and asked, “Are you hurt?”

Miao Miao was puzzled: “I thought Lai Fu and Gou Dan were fighting and wanted to help, but Big Brother was holding me so I didn’t help. Big Brother said that they are playing house. Will playing house get you hurt?”

The old man was stunned for a moment, and looked at Jiang Chen with a little more gratitude: “Young man, thank you, I really mus thank you just now, the cat in the village is a fierce one, not only scratches dogs, but also scratches people, if Miao Miao was scratched or bitten, I don’t know what I could do.”

Jiang Chen shook his head, but still reminded: “Miao Miao is still young, you should try not to let her play outside alone in the future.”

The old man smiled, his expression a bit bitter: “I want to look after her too, but I have to go to the fields to water the ground every afternoon, and there is no one else at home, so I can only let her play by herself for a while. Nothing happened before, but this time, thank you very much.”

“No need to thank me.” Jiang Chen raised his hand and handed the ancient currency to the old man: “Sir, this is Miao Miao’s playing house money, do you know this money?”

“Of course I know.” The old man nodded and said with a smile: “There are several pieces at home, the family elders kept some, but they can’t be used anymore. Since they just lay around, I let Miao Miao play with it.”

Jiang Chen understood, he took the ancient currency and briefly explained the value of this ancient currency to the old man.

The old man’s eyes widened, unable to believe his ears: “How much did you say? How much can this old money be exchanged for?”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

“At the moment, a single Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Banknote can be sold for at least 600,000 yuan, but if you are not in a hurry and slowly find a buyer who collects ancient currency, you may be able to sell it for more than 700,000 yuan.”

“Seven, seven hundred thousand?” The old man repeated several times before asking, “Seven hundred thousand and not just seventy yuan?”

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 018 Physical Exam

After the consultation, the Jiang family set the time of admission to the hospital at the end of April.

On the day Jiang Zhuo was admitted to the hospital, it coincided with the routine physical examination of the high school second years. There was no class in the morning and more than half of the teenagers were in especially good spirits. They laughed and joked without care, full of energy.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Only Shen Xu was an exception, his face pale, watching the line in front of him shorten little by little, and his whole person wanted to cry but he was without tears, and could only hunch his thin shoulders pitifully and helplessly.

Jiang Chen stood behind him, holding a black-covered book in his hand, reading while waiting in line, leisurely and calmly.

“Brother Jiang, why do you think they draw such a large tube of blood?” Shen Xu stretched his neck to watch the person in front of him draw blood, and after watching it, he leaned on Jiang Chen tremblingly, with a chalk white face: “I won’t faint from the blood loss, will I?”

“You say that every time you had your blood drawn before, but did you ever faint?” Jiang Chen glanced at him, then lowered his eyes to continue reading.

“You fellow, crossing the river and demolishing the bridge!” Shen Xu was not comforted, and he became dissatisfied in an instant, but his spirits also rose and he said: “You want to switch our test tubes, and your good brother, I, agreed without a word. But when I am so nervous and in need of a little comfort from you, you actually ignore me like this. Soon my body will be hurt later, but now you actually hurt my heart first, do you have a conscience, are you still my good brother or not?”

Jiang Chen sighed in the bottom of his heart. He very much missed Huo Bo at times like these, if Huo Bo was here, just a look from him would make Shen Xu shut up.

“How do you want me to comfort you?”

“May 1, accompany me for at least three days!” Shen Xu immediately stood up straight, and said while counting his fingers, “One day to play basketball, one day to play video games, and one day to…..”

Jiang Chen didn’t wait for him to finish, and just helped him to finish: “Go to the library to study.”

“What library, what study!” Shen Xu was dissatisfied: “Seven days off! It’s a long vacation! Who goes to the library! And how could there be any spot left in the library?”

“You will go if there’s an open spot?”

“I…..” Shen Xu pursed his lips, but knowing that Jiang Chen was going to go, he could only reluctantly say: “Fine, fine, it happens that my parents are at home this holiday, although they know that I will be hanging out with you and won’t lecture me, but if they know we are going to the library, I might have more pocket money next month.”

Jiang Chen patted his shoulder and raised his chin slightly: “It’s your turn.”

The blood draws on this line have basically been finished. Most of the boys rushed in front and left after the drawing. Most of the girls queued behind the boys, but they also knew that they would have to have their blood drawn sooner or later and so did not dawdle, just rolled up their sleeves when their turn arrived. Only Shen Xu felt faint from needles and blood, and dragged Jiang Chen to the end of the line, until only the two of them were left in the arranged office.

However, this was exactly what Jiang Chen needed.

Shen Xu stepped forward, the nurse looked up at him and asked, “Jiang Chen?”

Shen Xu paused, then nodded.

“Put your arm on the table, when I ask you to make a fist, you will make a fist, and if it’s let go, then you let go.” Probably because Shen Xu’s complexion was too ugly, and it was the last two students already, the nurse smiled and comforted: “‘Classmate Jiang Chen ‘, don’t be afraid, this will be over very quickly.”

The fake Jiang Chen nodded, grabbing the real Jiang Chen’s arm with one hand, resting his other arm on the cushion, stiffened his neck and closed his eyes as if he was being tortured.

Jiang Chen sighed, covered Shen Xu’s eyes, and whispered to the nurse, “Please be gentle.”

“Don’t worry.” The nurse smiled and said, “It’s just an ant bite, it won’t…..”

“Owwwwwww——”

Before the nurse’s words that it wouldn’t hurt was even finished saying, Shen Xu’s screech startled her so much that her hands almost trembled. Fortunately, her professional quality was still there, and she quickly drew the needle, the process considered finished.

However, she really had been shocked and said with both amusement and irritation: “How could it hurt so much, classmate Jiang Chen, you are such a big boy, but you are like a child toward having your blood drawn.”

Shen Xu clutched his arm, his expression weak and fragile but confident: “I, Jiang Chen, am afraid of injections. I have been afraid of injections since I was a child, not only injections but also…..”

Jiang Chen rolled up his sleeves and glanced at him calmly when he stretched out his hand. Shen Xu immediately shut his mouth.

The nurse quickly drew blood for Jiang Chen, and after drawing the blood, she said to Shen Xu, “Look at ‘classmate Shen Xu’, he is not afraid at all, you are friends, learn more from him.”

Shen Xu covered his stomach with a snort and bent over from the laughter. Before waiting for Jiang Chen to speak, he nodded again and again: “Okay, okay, I will definitely learn from ‘classmate Shen Xu’.”

After the physical examination was the May 1st holiday.

Yesterday, the school went on vacation, and Jiang Zhuo was officially admitted to the hospital to prepare for surgery. Yang Si went to the hospital early in the morning with a change of clothes and breakfast. Jiang Chen went over at noon, and after changing shifts with Yang Si, delivered lunch to Jiang Zhuo. After sitting with him for a while, he was then driven away.

Both Jiang Zhuo and his wife felt that after the accident, Jiang Chen’s character was much more serious and solemn than before. Although others would think he had become more sensible, they felt distressed in their hearts. Before on holidays, the child would often go out to play basketball with friends. Now he always stayed at home or studied or helped out around the house. Children of this age didn’t need to be like this, they just wanted him to be happy.

Therefore, when Jiang Zhuo saw Jiang Chen sit next to him, pick up the book he brought and opened it, as if he was going to read it all afternoon, he took out the book in his hand and drove him out without hesitation. He stuffed him with fifty yuan and told him to find Shen Xu and Huo bo to play what he wanted to play, and eat what he wanted to eat, and not to sit dully at home or in the hospital all the time.

Jiang Chen had no choice but to leave the hospital with the money.

Today was the first day of May. Shen Xu and his parents were going to visit relatives and Huo Bo was not in Yan City now. So today he planned to read a book in the hospital while taking care of his father. But at this time, the plan was disrupted and he didn’t know where else to go.

Walking out the hospital, Jiang Chen paused and his eyes fell on the lively quaint old street two blocks away.

It was an antique street and was quite famous in Yan City. A few years ago, someone bought a long-necked gourd bottle from the Qianlong period for 30 yuan on a street stall and became rich overnight. Since then, Antique Street had also grown in popularity and there was an endless stream of people who go there to find treasures, as well as attract many tourists to visit.

Although Jiang Chen had always lived in Yan City, he only passed by there in his first life and never went in, and the same was true in this life. It just so happened that he had nothing to do now, so he turned and walked towards Antique Street.

Antique Street was crowded with people, it was a holiday now, and there were many tourists.

Jiang Chen had just walked a few steps but he was already about to turn around and go back, but the crowd pushed him forward, and it was very difficult to turn back now, so he had to choose to go out from the other end of Antique Street.

Most of the storefronts on both sides were decorated in retro style. There were big houses with red doors and stone lions, and there were small houses with wooden beams and carved wooden windows. If there were no crowds of people in modern wear, at first glance, it really appeared like a scene from ancient times.

Jiang Chen stopped in front of a wooden door, and his eyes stopped at the copper basin that was placed at the door. The basin was full of round ancient coins, some clean and some mottled, of different sizes.

“Customer, would you like to buy some copper coins?” Probably seeing him standing for a long time, the shop clerk dressed in a very retro style came over, but his words were a strange blend of ancient and modern: “If you want to buy it, our Guyun Shop will definitely satisfy you. What year does the customer want, I can give you a look?”

Jiang Chen returned to his senses, declined the clerk’s promotion, and turned around and left the shop.

Standing at the door for a few seconds, he pursed his lower lip, raised his legs and walked in the opposite direction of the flow of people.

After leaving Antique Street, Jiang Chen sat down at the bus stop next to him and lowered his eyes to think about what he had just suddenly thought of.

In the first life, when the company he started with Huo Bo and Shen Xu was just starting, they finally negotiated a cooperation that was extremely important to them at the time. In order to show respect for their future partners, all three of them attended the banquet hosted by the other party.

He had never liked to participate in these banquets, and he had hardly attended them a few times in total. That banquet was one that left the most impression on him, because their future business partner, after a few drinks, grabbed him to sit down next to him and told him his rags to riches tale.

“On May Day in 2004, I was going to the outskirts of Yan City to see my relatives. Who would have thought that I would pick up a silver currency banknote printed by the Hubei Official Money Bureau? Do you know what a Hubei Official Money Bureau Silver Currency Banknote is? Have you seen it before? Let me tell you…..the silver banknote reads ‘Based on this banknote, withdraw an estimate of ten taels’, I still remember it clearly, not a single word forgotten! When I saw that silver banknote, my heart skipped a beat, and I knew that my chance to make a fortune had come, so I immediately hid it and took it home. It turned out that I really hit the jackpot. In 2006, there was an auction in Hong Kong. Do you know how much it cost? 1.3 million yuan! 1.3 million! That’s how I got my first pot of gold hahahaha…..”

Although he only relayed what was written on that banknote once, Jiang Chen’s memory had always been excellent. In addition, the experience of having a drunk man who was grabbing on to him at that time and alternating between boasting about his rags to riches tale and then bursting into folk songs was too particular. Despite two lifetimes having passed, that incident and that out-of-tune singing was still not erased from his memory.

It was just that this incident never held an important place in his memory, it was a memory garbage that left such an impression that it was difficult to eliminate, so before seeing that pot of copper coins just now, he didn’t recall it at all, but after seeing those copper coins, the memory appeared naturally.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

Now was the first day of the May Day holiday week in 2004. Although he didn’t know which day the person picked up the banknote during the holiday, within this time period, Jiang Chen decided to check it out.

If that silver banknote was picked up by him today, he would keep part of the money, and if not, he would not go look for it again.

The No. 213 bus stopped in front of him, Jiang Chen got up and stepped onto the bus.

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 017 End Of Bad Days

Shi Fengyue’s words gave the Jiang family reassurance.

In the office, Shi Fengyue was conducting a more detailed consultation with Jiang Zhuo. Jiang Chen was with him. The corners of Yang Si’s mouth twitched upwards again and again in joy. After the tension passed, she finally felt thirsty. She whispered to Jiang Chen and then quietly left the office.

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

After drinking a glass of water in one breath, Yang Si couldn’t hide the joy on her face. She walked around clutching the bag in her hand, and after wandering for a while, she finally couldn’t help laughing out loud. After she ran to the restroom to wash her face, looking at the no longer gloomy face in the mirror, the corners of her lips raised.

How wonderful.

The bad days of this family have finally come to an end.

When Jiang Zhuo got better and their son got into a good university, everything would be fine at home.

Yang Si smiled, but her eyes couldn’t help turning red. She covered her mouth and squeezed her eyes, crying and laughing at the same time.

The past few months have been a never ending despair and hardship she had never felt before, but she did not dare to shed even a tear. Her husband was in the most pain and sadness, and her child was at a sensitive and vulnerable age. If even she could not support the family, then the family would really collapse.

But she was also afraid. She was afraid that her husband would fall into depression, and would lose himself in the depths of his depression in the future, immersed in the shadow of being unable to stand up. She was afraid that her child would be affected by things at home, be distracted at such an important moment, and that he would fail in the college entrance examination a year later. She was also afraid that she wouldn’t be able to bear this heavy burden herself, and this family would really collapsed just like this.

She kept gritting her teeth and prepared for the worst, but when seeing hope in a sea of despair, how could she not be ecstatic?

Yang Si quietly went to the secluded small hospital garden alone. She sat on the bench, crying and laughing while covering her mouth, just wanting to vent all her suppressed emotions during this time.

After crying it out, she fell silent again.

Her husband’s legs could be saved, and so it was certain that he would undergo the surgery.

But after the car accident, most of the family’s savings had been spent. Now all the savings in the family added up to only 30,000 yuan. Although she didn’t know the specific cost of the operation, Yang Si also knew that the family’s money was far from enough to support her husband’s surgery expenses. Moreover, her child’s schooling and food needed money, so how could there be no savings left at home.

The top priority was to get a sum of money that could cover Jiang Zhuo’s surgery costs as soon as possible. It was just that, towards such a large amount of money, how was it possible to so easily be raised.

Yang Si thought about the people who could lend money to them, and finally found that they could only borrow at most 30,000 yuan, which was already the limit that their friends could support. Most of the households at this time were not that wealthy and those who could take out tens of thousands of yuan were already quite well-off.

In fact, before father Jiang was injured, the Jiang family’s conditions were also considered to be well-off. At this time, a deposit of more than 200,000 yuan in the bank was considered a very well-off family. Because of this, every time the Yang family came to mooch money from them, although Jiang Zhuo was irritated, he never really raged about it. He was angry not because of the money, but because of the way the Yang family treated Yang Si as an ATM yet never felt bad for her and treated her better.

Yang Si knew all of this and it was precisely because she knew that she developed the idea of ​​severing ties with her natal family members, but before they had time to do anything, Jiang Zhuo had an accident, and the Yang family changed their face and threw stones at them while they were down.

Now Jiang Zhuo was in urgent need of treatment expenses. If the Yang family could repay the money owed to them, it would solve the urgent need of the Jiang family, but was it possible that the Yang family would pay it back?

Thinking of what happened last time she went to the Yang family with Jiang Chen, Yang Si gritted her teeth. Although she had cut off relations with her parents and younger brother, she had to get the money back!

If there was no hope for Jiang Zhuo’s legs, then the money would not be needed, but now that there was a chance of recovery, she had to seize it no matter what. But how to get the Yang family to repay the money, she still needed to think about it some more.

Thinking this, Yang Si couldn’t help but smile, no matter how difficult the family was, as long as there was hope, she believed that their family could overcome the difficulties and shoulder on.

When Jiang Chen found Yang Si, he happened to see her smiling face with reddened eyes.

“Mom.”

Yang Si quickly wiped her eyes before turning to look at Jiang Chen.

Jiang Chen sat down beside her with a smile, and said softly, “I know you are happy, and so am I.”

“Yeah.” Yang Si smiled relaxedly: “Your Dad’s leg can be cured, Mom is so happy.”

“Mom, were you just thinking about Dad’s surgery fee and follow-up treatment costs?”

Jiang Chen turned his head to look at her, his clear eyes see straight through her, and Yang Si, who wanted to find an excuse to hide it, opened her mouth but couldn’t speak, and finally could only nod her head.

But she still didn’t want the child to worry about it. She smiled and said, “Mom was indeed thinking about this, but you don’t have to worry, Mom already has a solution.”

“What solution?” Jiang Chen had been direct with his parents since he was a child, and he would tell them anything, and the same was true at this time: “Mom, do you want to sell the house or go to the Yang family to ask for the money back?”

Yang Si was stunned, she didn’t expect Jiang Chen to guess what she was thinking.

Yang Si was very clear about how unlikely it was to get money from the Yang family, but Jiang Zhuo’s legs couldn’t wait. If she really couldn’t get it, selling the family’s house was the fastest way to get money, but…..in that case, Jiang Chen would have a lot of trouble going to school.

That was the point she had been hesitating about.

Jiang Chen naturally knew what Yang Si was thinking, and even knew what she was hesitating about.

In the first life, under the unremitting search of the Jiang family, a doctor finally agreed to perform Jiang Zhuo’s operation, but he also bluntly said that he could not guarantee that Jiang Zhuo could stand up, and the success rate was very low. At that time, it had been more than a year since Jiang Zhuo’s car accident, and the family’s savings had long since dwindled to nothing. Naturally, the Yang family would not fork over any money, but for this slim hope, after Yang Si and Jiang Chen discussed it over, they decided to choose the surgery.

At that time, Jiang Chen naturally agreed to the treatment. How could the family’s house and his studies be more important than his father’s legs? After the house was sold, there could be a new one, and if his studies were delayed, he could repeat his studies. Whereas Jiang Zhuo’s chance at standing up was just this once.

However, Jiang Zhuo had already given up hope at that time. He didn’t want his family to sell the house or be in debt because of him. He even quarreled with Yang Si about it. In the end, the house was still sold, and then Jiang Zhuo was coaxed and persuaded to be sent to the operating room.

That operation was unsuccessful.

The failure of the operation and the lack of a fixed place to live became the last straw that broke the camel’s back. Jiang Zhuo felt that he was a drag on his family and committed suicide on a quiet night.

Jiang Chen still remembered that that time was truly the most despairing period for the family, his father’s funeral, his mother’s crying, the Yang family’s ridicule, and the college entrance examination that was about to come in just over a month……That time when the house was sold was the fuse that caused the Jiang family to really fall into desperate straits.

Even if the family’s situation in this life had not reached that point in the first life, and Jiang Chen firmly believed that Shi Fengyue could cure Jiang Zhuo’s legs, he had never thought of selling the house for money, not only because in the first life it became the biggest regret and pain of the Jiang family, but also because he never thought about letting the Yang family live freely and wantonly with the money they owed the Jiang family.

Whether it was to buy real estate or speculate in stocks to make money or to design software to make money, it would take a certain amount of time, and Jiang Zhuo’s legs couldn’t wait. So since the beginning, Jiang Chen only thought about getting the money back from the Yang family. When he co-founded a company with Huo Bo and Shen Xu, although he didn’t manage the company’s daily affairs, he also learned a lot of things by their side that ordinary people might not have access to, such as pursuing debts.

It was just that Yang Si must agree to that method, and only she could come forward, so Jiang Chen couldn’t act rashly before he understood Yang Si’s thoughts.

Now, Jiang Chen looked at Yang Si’s expression and felt that the time might have finally come.

“Mom.” Jiang Chen looked at her and said seriously: “I know you may want to sell the house, but have you ever thought, if the house is sold, where will our family live? What about going to school in the future? What will Dad think? He absolutely will not want us to have no place to live because of him. Before the operation, we need to maintain a good physical and mental state. If Dad knows, could he still undergo the operation in his best state?”

Jiang Chen picked out all of Yang Si’s concerns, word by word, and pressed those concerns towards her, causing her to instantly shrink back from the idea of ​​selling the house, becoming more apprehensive about the idea.

“But…..if we don’t sell the house, what about your father’s treatment costs?”

Yang Si didn’t intend to let Jiang Chen know the family’s economic situation and cause him to be worried about it, but facing Jiang Chen at this time, she unknowingly expressed her concerns and worries.

“If I say that I have a way to get back the money the Yang family owes us, but it may cause you and the Yang family to not even be left with a single trace of affection, will you still be willing?”

Yang Si was taken aback, her eyes widened in disbelief, and she nodded almost without hesitation: “We and the Yang family have long since had a falling out, they have no affection for me at all, if the money can be get back for your father’s treatment, what do I still care about that nonexistent trace of affection?”

Jiang Chen smiled, he nodded, and said, “I remember that the several large sums of money that Yang Tianci borrowed from our family at the beginning were all with IOUs, do you still have those IOUs?”

Yang Si directly ignored Jiang Chen’s direct referral to Yang Tianci’s name, nodded and said, “In the drawer where the important documents are kept at home.”

“That’s good.” Jiang Chen’s brows and eyes curved, revealing a mouthful of small white teeth, the little dimple on one side deepened a little more, and that handsome face showed the liveliness of a youth: “My plan is this…..”

Yang Si heard what Jiang Chen whispered in her ear, her eyes widened, and then asked in a low voice, “Is this really possible? This won’t break the law, right?”

“Of course it won’t break the law.” Jiang Chen sat up straight, his expression returned to his usual modesty and calmness: “The transfer of creditor’s rights is legal, but we may need to give up part of it to the debt collectors.”

“Of course.” Yang Si agreed immediately: “As long as we can get back enough for your father’s surgery, the extra money can even be given to the debt collectors.”

After she finished speaking, she was a little worried: “It won’t get us involved in any trouble, right? Those people…..”

“Don’t worry, Mom, I will find an official debt collection agency.”

You c an fi nd t he la te st cha pte rs at ( th e ir on tr ee bl oo ms. c o m )

The methods used by official debt collection agencies were naturally legal and reasonable, but they were also well versed in the way of stepping on the edge of the line, which could not only make the debtors miserable, but also make them have nowhere to complain, and could only pay back the money obediently. But as for these things, it was not what Yang Si, who had already transferred the creditor’s right, needed to know.

Among the flowers of spring, the young man had a bright smile, a gentle and elegant demeanor, and appeared the most upright and honest that one could be.

After Two Lifetimes I Was Reborn Back Inside A Book CH 016 Official Meeting

On Wednesday, Jiang Chen specially took a day off.

Jiang Zhuo and his wife did not feel too excited about this meeting. After all, they had been to Yan City No. 3 Hospital before, and they had seen a somewhat well-known chief physician of spine surgery. He was also one of the doctors who said that Jiang Zhuo’s legs were hopeless. And in terms of strength, Yan No. 3 was not particularly ranked in this respect.

They were only willing to visit again after learning that Jiang Chen went out every weekend morning to ask about the doctor. Jiang Zhuo and his wife could not bear to disappoint him, so they agreed.

It was just that Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si couldn’t help but look forward to this meeting when seeing Jiang Chen asking for leave so solemnly, seeing the rare smile on his face since the accident, seeing his bright eyes and the little dimple at the corner of his mouth. They hoped that the doctor really did have good skills. They hoped that today would not let Jiang Chen be disappointed again after putting in the effort for so long.

When Jiang Chen and Jiang Zhuo arrived at the Third Hospital of Yan City, there were exactly two nurses on duty at the outpatient consultation desk three days ago.

They saw Jiang Chen coming, with an unfamiliar couple beside them. They were a little curious, but they didn’t ask any further questions. A round-faced nurse smiled and said, “Dr. Shi is here today, and I was just thinking you would come, he hasn’t any appointments yet, so this morning there were only patients queuing for consultation. So you can go to the front to register now, it should be your turn soon.”

Jiang Chen smiled and nodded, while Jiang Zhuo and his wife were a little surprised.

Jiang Zhuo was naturally moved when he knew that Jiang Chen came to Yan No. 3 Hospital every week, but now that even the nurses at the consultation desk knew him and that he was so familiar with queuing and registration, his heart was even more complicated.

He couldn’t give the child a superior living condition and after the accident, the child was worried and fearful. He already felt very guilty that he couldn’t be as simple and happy as before. So at this time, when he saw Jiang Chen busying himself with his treatment, he thought of how Jiang Chen must have done a lot of things for him and made so much effort, those complex feelings suddenly gave birth to a strong desire——he must get better.

Even if he could no longer stand up, as a husband and a father, he had to let this family stand up. So what if he couldn’t walk, he could find work that could be done without needing to walk. Only once he had completely recovered from this matter, his child and wife could let go of their worries and live a normal life.

Jiang Zhuo raised his head to look at his son, who seemed to have lost his naivety and had grown up quickly. He was proud and remorseful, but when he met those smiling eyes, he couldn’t help but also have a gratified smile on his face.

The child had worked so hard, what reason did he have to give up on himself?

Today this time, no matter what the result was, it would be treated as a new start for their family!

Jiang Chen saw Jiang Zhuo’s smile, and the smile in his eyes deepened. He took the registration slip and said, “Mom and Dad, we are number six, and there are only two people in front. The spine surgery clinic is on the second floor. Let’s go up and wait.”

Yang Si nodded and pushed Jiang Zhuo into the elevator. Seeing the smiles on Jiang Chen and Jiang Zhuo’s faces, the shadows in her heart also dissipated a lot. Since Jiang Zhuo’s accident, she was scared and anxious every time she came to the hospital. After the number of times increased, it left a shadow behind, and as soon as she stepped into the door of the hospital, her chest would feel stuffy and her heart would palpitate.

They arrived on the second floor very soon. The family of three got out of the elevator, followed the signs to the Spine Surgery Clinic, and stopped outside a small door. There was a blue sign next to the door, which read: Spine Surgery, Shi Fengyue.

Jiang Chen handed the registration form to the nurse outside the door. The nurse glanced at it and said, “The previous patient has just entered, and it should be you right away. Just wait here for a while. If you are thirsty, there is a water dispenser over there.”

“Thank you.”

Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si were both a little nervous, so naturally they were not in the mood to drink water, but Jiang Chen was a little thirsty, so he poured a glass of water over there and drank it himself. He then poured a glass for his parents, holding it in his hand in case they got thirsty later.

The patient who entered came out not long after, and he was also accompanied by his family member, frowning and talking to the family member who was pushing his wheelchair: “This Dr. Shi actually said that the treatment of my leg is too simple, and asked me to find another doctor and he won’t be taking my case, is he mental?”

The Jiang family, who were about to go in, happened to hear their conversation. Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si looked at each other but before they could think about anything, Jiang Chen had already opened the door for them and could only go in.

However, when the wheelchair was pushed halfway, Jiang Chen no longer moved further.

Jiang Chen held the doorknob in one hand and the water glass in the other, and stood in the gap where the door opened. The man who was rotating the pen with his fingers raised his head lazily, and their eyes collided. One slightly widened his eyes, and the other raised his eyebrows.

“It’s you?”

“Why are you here?”

The two spoke at the same time, one was surprised, the other was curious.

For the first time since he was reborn, Jiang Chen showed such an exposed expression of surprise: “You are Shi Fengyue?”

Shi Fengyue crossed his legs with a smile at the corner of his eyes. He supported his chin with one hand and said lazily, “Don’t you already know me?”

Jiang Chen’s brows twitched, what he said was indeed correct, he could be considered to have known him, after all, he had met him twice before, but for some reason, he kept feeling that there was something else in Shi Fengyue’s words.

Sure enough, Shi Fengyue tilted his head and laughed exuberantly, with a dissolute and sly expression: “It turns out that the golden age beauty has such a low sense of existence in your heart.”

Jiang Chen: “…..”

Could it be that he was actually listening to him talking to the nurse back then?

“I’m sorry.” Jiang Chen paused, put away the surprise in his heart, and said calmly: “I didn’t know you were Dr. Shi before, and I said ‘golden age beauty’ because I heard a friend who saw your photo describe you that way, and so I borrowed their words without thinking too much about it.”

Don’t know if Shi Fengyue believed it or not, his half-smiling eyes staying on him for a few seconds before passing by him to the couple behind him. He nodded slightly and said, “Is it a patient? Please come in.”

Jiang Zhuo and his wife, who were confused by their conversation, just came in a daze. Even after the door closed, Shi Fengyue squatted beside Jiang Zhuo’s leg and pinched for a long time, then watched the x-rays he brought, and asked a few questions, Yang Si was still a bit at a loss.

Did Jiang Chen and this Dr. Shi know each other or not?

It sounded like they didn’t know each other, but they all looked like they knew each other. Moreover, this Dr. Shi was really quite young. The age difference between the two was not much different so if Jiang Chen knew him it was not that strange. But why had she never heard about it before?

Also, this young doctor was too good-looking. Before, Yang Si only thought that her child was the best-looking boy she had ever seen. Even though she was wearing the filter of being a mother, whoever had met Jiang Chen would always praise him for looking better than the stars on TV. But after seeing this doctor, Yang Si realized that people could actually be born with looks like this.

Just as there were a bunch of questions in Yang Si’s mind, and because of Shi Fengyue’s appearance, she couldn’t help but question his medical skills, she then heard a pleasant sounding voice say slowly:

“After being discharged from the hospital, the maintenance was done well. If you are ready to enter the hospital, you should be able to undergo the operation in half a month. I can guarantee the success rate of the operation, but how much you can recover after the operation depends on your later rehabilitation. If it is good, you will be able to walk normally again, and if not you can only use crutches, but no matter the case, heavy physical activity and strenuous exercise are no longer possible.”

Yang Si was in a daze, the cool, magnetic voice sounded in her ears, each word jumping in her mind. It took a while to string together a sentence for her to understand and digest, but after digesting it, she doubted her own ears.

Did she hear it right?

The doctor said that there was still hope for Jiang Zhuo’s legs?

He could stand up after surgery? And it was even possible to walk normally?

Jiang Zhuo was also shocked and dazed.

Stand up?

The doctor said he could stand up after the surgery on his leg?

Was this real?

Compared with his parents’ disbelief, Jiang Chen accepted it without even needing to digest it. Needless to say, Shi Fengyue’s medical skills were not to be questioned. If others saw him so young and heard him say “guarantee the success rate of surgery”, they would only think he was arrogant and ignorant. In fact, many people questioned this in the early stage of his medical practice in the first life, but it turned out that Shi Fengyue could really do it. So long as it was his operation, the success rate was 100%.

But he was also a little surprised.

During this time, he had planned countless ways to get Shi Fengyue to agree to perform the operation. He even thought about it in class, but he had yet to think of a sure way, because he didn’t know Shi Fengyue in reality, and the Shi Fengyue he heard from other people’s mouths was also an image of a willful person doing whatever he wanted. If he didn’t want to agree, whatever you say or do was useless.

To this end, he had already prepared an alternative plan, screening out the well-known spine surgeons at home and abroad one by one, thinking that if he really couldn’t get Shi Fengyue’s consent, his father’s legs couldn’t wait any longer, he must find other alternatives as soon as possible, and he even prepared to take leave to go to hospitals in other provinces and cities.

But unexpectedly, Shi Fengyue agreed so easily.

Could it be that his father’s condition was so bad that Shi Fengyue was interested enough in the challenge?

This was the only reason Jiang Chen could think of.

While Jiang Chen was thinking, Jiang Zhuo and Yang Si finally reacted.

Yang Si said with a trembling voice: “D-Dr. Shi, are you telling the truth? There is still hope for my husband’s legs, and he can still stand up after the operation?”

Shi Fengyue glanced at the thoughtful Jiang Chen, and frowned inwardly. This was the first surgery he promised to do today, and he promised it directly and without any beating around the bush, so why did this child not seem very happy. Before, he had done everything to find and approach him, but now when he really saw him he was not as interested?

He tutted from the bottom of his heart, squeezing and letting go of a candy in his pocket, but his expression remained calm and flat: “If you decide to have surgery, I suggest that Mr. Jiang be admitted to the hospital as soon as possible.”

“Surgery! Of course, surgery is necessary!” Yang Si immediately said, “He can be admitted to the hospital anytime!”

After she finished speaking, she turned to see Jiang Zhuo. Jiang Zhuo’s eyes were already red. He looked at his excited wife, swallowed the lump in his throat, and said, “Dr. Shi, could my legs really recover?”

Normally, Shi Fengyue’s most annoying pet peeve was to deal with the incessant and repetitive questioning. Whether it was self-questioning or questioning him, he was neither interested nor in the mood to comfort them. But when he saw Jiang Chen, who suddenly raised his face and smiled, sowing a small dimple, his impatience instantly dissipated, and he even couldn’t help but curve his lips in a slight smile of his own.

“Yes.” Shi Fengyue’s tone had always been very mild and indifferent, but at this time it also held a convincing power: “If you can, enter the hospital as soon as possible.”
