Mrs. Chen understood that this was all Cheng’s good intentions. She just said that on purpose because she didn’t want to make him think too much.
“Sigh, this kid, what more can I say…”
Compared with her, Mr. Chen didn’t refuse that much, so he said, “Since Cheng is giving these to us, let’s just accept them. It’s the kid’s kind intention.”
“Yes, Auntie, this is just a little bit from my heart, so don’t be too polite,” said Cheng with worry that Mrs. Chen would still not accept them.
Mrs. Chen resigned and no longer refused. “All right, then your master and I will accept these. You kid, hurry in and take a seat, and put those things down.”
“Okay!” Cheng responded happily.
As soon as he was about to enter the house and sit down, he looked up and noticed Xiulan who was standing in the room at this time.
He seemed to have seen her yesterday and he thought that he had seen it wrong. Now that he thought about it, he didn’t make a mistake. It was really her.
“Comrade Xiulan, it’s really you!” he said in surprise, with a pleasant smile on his face and a little excitement in his heart.
He didn’t know what was wrong with him. Since the last time he saw her, he always remembered her little face from time to time before going to bed at night, and he would also think of that scene when she was repairing a truck. This was something that he had never experienced before.
Now that he saw her again, he couldn’t help but feel happy, just like when he saw someone he had missed for a long time.
Facing his friendly greeting, Xiulan also smiled. “Comrade Jiang, I didn’t expect to see you here.”

Seeing that Xiulan and Cheng knew each other, Mrs. Chen asked curiously, “How did you know each other?”
It stood to reason that there was no intersection between these two people. Cheng also came to Anxian not long ago. He was not a local and had little contact with the residents there, so he should not know Xiulan.
He told Mrs. Chen the ins and outs of his acquaintance with Xiulan, and she could only call it fate.
The world was sometimes really small and fate might just be so wonderful.
After he finished talking, he also curiously asked her how they knew Xiulan.
She did not hide too much from him, knowing that he was one of her own.
The couple both sighed. If it weren’t for Xiulan, they wouldn’t be able to wait until he came to visit them because they were already dead.
Cheng listened to Mrs. Chen’s story and while he was grateful to Xiulan, he also became even more curious about her.
Last time, the fact that she could repair trucks made him curious about her. She was only a country girl, so he wondered how could she have such professional skills.
And now, she also could get foodstuffs. He knew how difficult it was to get foodstuffs at this time.
It seemed that she still had many secrets that he didn’t know. Because of that, he became even more interested and wanted to know what kind of girl she was.
They all sat down and spoke a few words. Mrs. Chen sighed with emotion, feeling that it was all because of fate. Because of that, she asked Xiulan to eat together with them at noon. It was rare for everyone to know each other, plus she was also going to host a meal for Cheng. He brought a half kilo of pork belly, which was just in time for them to have a good meal.
In the past, she couldn’t come up with anything good to offer to Xiulan. After finally being able to get some meat, she had to invite Xiulan to a meal to express her sincere gratitude.
But Xiulan shied away, “I don’t need to stay and eat, Auntie Chen. You don’t have to be so courteous.”
