Quick Transmigration: I Just Want to Die

Chapter 41

At first, Ah Jin struggled a bit, but then she slowly got the hang of it as she followed the people around her.

She had to stabilize the weight of her legs, exert force with her waist and arms, and swing the hoe in her hand one after another.

By noon, Ah Jin's hands had blisters, and her arms were sore and weak.

When the fourth child looked at Ah Jin's hands, he was distressed and said.

"Eldest sister, please don't do it. Just plant the seeds. I'll eat less."

Ah Jin pinched his nose.

"It's okay. It is time to go home and cook. Let me see how much firewood you have collected."

There were not many.

There was only a tiny bundle of scattered branches.

It was not enough for cooking.

Ah Jin brought him on the way down the mountain, and the two of them were still picking up grass.

The leaves of the low branches on the trees had been picked by others.

Ah Jin found an apricot tree.

The bare tree had some scattered leaves left on the highest part.

"Little brother, you watch here. I will go up and pick some leaves back to eat."

As soon as the fourth child heard this, he immediately shook his head.

"No, eldest sister. If you fell, then how!"

"It's okay. Eldest Sister will take her time."

After saying that she was going up the tree, she found that her arms had no strength, exhausted from digging the ground.

Thus, a little more energy was transferred.

The pain disappeared after the energy traveled around her arms.

Ah Jin felt that the strength of her arms was much greater.

Ah Jin hugged the tree's trunk with both arms and climbed upward with her legs.

So she climbed to the place where there were branches.

She slowly climbed to the top with the branches and picked the few leaves left.

When she got off the tree, she broke some branches and took them home for cooking fire.

Although the nutritional value of apricot leaves was not high, at least it was edible.

In that period, it was enough to fill the stomach, and the rest was not important.

There were still several months before the autumn harvest, and the little food at home would not be enough.

They would starve.

Ah Jin returned home.

She took out a piece of potato and chopped it up, then mixed it with apricot leaves as she cooked a pot of "porridge."

The family was so poor that they didn't even have lard.

They had to cook something to eat.

When the two children came back from school at noon, the four of them ate together.

"Eldest sister, we have an afternoon work class. I am going to get some grass back. You do not have to pick them up this afternoon."

Ah Jin nodded.

"Okay, I have not burned the ones I picked up at noon. You can get some more back for use at night."

Ah Jin looked at the three yellow-faced and thin children in front of her.

She could not bear it.

Every day was like that.

The original character herself could not get enough, let alone the three boys.

Ah Jin asked San Qi whether the mall was selling food inside?

San Qi also did not play dead and immediately said, "Yes, there are. There are twenty catties of high-quality rice for 39.9 energy. Do you want it?"

Ah Jin did not answer.

San Qi saw that Ah Jin did not make a sound.

It tried to ask, "How about giving you another five catties of millet?"

Ah Jin still did not say anything.

San Qi was a bit anxious.

It did not want to let go of this opportunity.

"Then I will give you five cabbages! No more!"

Ah Jin finally nodded.

"On credit, put it in the space."

San Qi's eyes widened like green beans.

"On credit? You have to pay now!"

"I can't take credit, then forget it."

San Qi saw that the business would be in the dark again and hurriedly said, "I was wrong, boss. If you want to take it on credit, just take it on credit."

Ah Jin's heart was speechless.

It couldn't be persuaded by reason but be cowed by force.

What was wrong with that system?

San Qi hurriedly clicked a few times in the air, and the food Ah Jin asked for appeared in space.

Ah Jin also instructed San Qi to divide them into small and even portions.

The cabbages were also broken up and divided.

San Qi felt its sight turned dark.

It was not only spending money now but also working!

If San Qi didn't work, it was afraid that Ah Jin would be dissatisfied and not give it energy in the end.

It wasn't the first time she had screwed it.

In the end, San Qi could only work as hard as possible.

In the afternoon, Ah Jin and Grandpa Fang took turns plowing the ground and sowing seeds, increasing efficiency.

When the work was settled, they were both given five points.

Whereas before, they were both given three points.

In the evening, Ah Jin came home and let the fourth child go out to play.

She asked San Qi to bring out a share of the food.

Then three bags appeared in front of Ah Jin, a bag of rice, a millet, and some cabbage leaves.

Ah Jin put the grain into the cupboard and hid it.

She then took out a small portion of the sorghum rice, crushed it into rice crumbs, grabbed a handful of millet, and mixed it in.

It was still a porridge but much better than the previous two meals.

At least the porridge became thicker.

After the porridge was cooked, Ah Jin chopped the cabbage leaves and threw them into the pot.

She added a little pinch of salt to enhance the flavor, creating a rich rice aroma with a bit of cabbage fragrance.

Although there was no oil, it was good.

Without oil, there was no way to make other dishes.

It seemed to be necessary to go buy some lard.

As she was thinking about it, the children came back from school.

Ah Jin gave the three of them a bowl of porridge.

The third child smelled the porridge and said, "Eldest sister, today's porridge smells good! There are vegetables in it!"

He took a mouthful with a spoon, "Oh, it's so good. How did you make it, eldest sister?"

"Hurry up and have it. Why so many questions? You can't even stop eating."

The third child hurriedly closed his mouth and finished the porridge.

Each of them had two bowls of porridge.

There was one bowl left at the end, and Ah Jin shared it.

The three children finished it to their heart's content.

It was probably the fullest night of eating since that period.

At present, the education system could not keep up, not to mention the rural areas.

The tuition fees were also very cheap compared to food, and there was even less homework at night.

Ah Jin asked the two of them to take out what they learned in school that day.

She could teach a lesson if they didn't know how.

It was called a school, but it was just a room where the youth taught the classes who had gone to the countryside.

Not many children attended school.

Some of them dropped out halfway through the school year and went home to work.

The women also went home to do needlework and find a good family to get married to.

When it was late, Ah Jin took advantage of the dawn to teach them to study during summer.

Ah Jin thought if he could graduate from high school and be sent to the army.

He would be 16 or 17 years old at that time.

But this Ah Jin did not say to him.

He could learn a little bit to count a little bit.

It would be good to know more words.

The four of them packed up and prepared for bed after it got dark.

Ah Jin lit a small oil lamp, opened the closet, and turned out all the four people's belongings.

A total of twenty-two yuan, a meat ticket, two food stamps, and two cloth tickets.

These were the inheritance left by the original character's parents.

For two years after the original character's mother's death, they were just maintaining the basic sustenance.

Even if the original character ate less, she couldn't save anything at all.

Ah Jin looked at the calendar.

There were still ten days before the next month.

Only at the beginning of each month, the food stores were opened to purchase food with tickets.

For the next month, she should buy food and meat.

Although there was food in the space, she still had to calculate carefully.

After all, the source of food in the space could not be explained once brought out.

Ah Jin also looked at the hole in the roof of their room.

The roof also needed to be repaired, but there was no hay.

How to repair ah!

For the first time, Ah Jin felt a little powerless.

In the era of extreme scarcity of materials, she was useless even if her skills were outstanding, else she would have starved herself to death.
