BTTS 2

Chapter 2. Personal Interspatial Space part2

Sure enough, the other business had yet to open, but the breakfast shop here opened at 6.15a.m. There were already street cleaners buying buns from here and ate while leaving.

"Auntie, give me one bun and a cup of soy milk. The three yuan worth bun." Lin Qing He said.

The aunt of the breakfast shop answered and soon brought it to her.

A hot steamed bun with a cup of soy milk.

Lin Qing He came by this store by chance half a year ago and came in for breakfast once and found this store.

The aunt in this store is local. Her family got three buildings for rental. According to the current house prices, like her single apartment will cost one thousand a month, without including the utility bills.

Cheap ones cost six or seven hundred a month. And three buildings are collecting rent, what does that mean?

Even if a family does nothing, there's no worry about food and clothing.

But the aunt's family couldn't sit still. The couple opened the breakfast shop with their eldest son and daughter-in-law, and the business was extremely prosperous.

Not only was it clean and hygienic, but it was also particularly good.

Like the bun Lin Qing He was eating, just one is enough for her to be full as she got a small stomach.

A bun costs three yuan, but it contains meat, eggs, and cabbage. It tastes very delicious and had plenty of ingredients.

And this bun is why she drove all the way here.

When Lin Qing He still haven't figured it out, she was skeptical. Would transmigrating with an interspatial space really happen to her?

After hesitating for two days, she thought it through today, the third day. This decision made her feel a sense of urgency. She was afraid that she would transmigrate to the poor place before she was ready.

Then that would mean call heaven get no answer, call earth get no inspiration (T/N: nowhere to turn for help).

And she didn’t know if there was any place for cooking. This big and delicious bun was really suitable!

"Auntie, how many buns are there? You're very skilled. It's so fragrant, I want to buy it for my colleagues." Lin Qing He wiped her mouth with paper and told the aunt.

The aunt laughed, "There is still more, but if you buy more, I can't make it cheap for you, our profit is not big."

Because the business is really good, there are a lot of made in general stores. Before there were construction sites making a large order, but it was the same, no discount on the price. That's because no matter how much was bought, this store's bun can be all sold out.

There is no shortage of big clients like Lin Qing He.

"Auntie, how much you have, pack it all for me. I drove over here, so I can be put in the back seat." Lin Qing He said: "But you really have to give me a cheaper price, this trip of mine saved your family a lot of effort?"

The aunt saw that she wasn't joking, said, "Then I'll see how much there is."
She went to take a look and soon came out: "I have made a lot today. There are three hundred, how much do you want?"

"There are only three hundred?" Lin Qing He couldn't help ask.

"Oh, little girl is not big in age, your tone is not small. Three hundred isn't little. At most, three of our buns are enough to make a big fellow full," the aunt said.

"There are many people in our workplace unit, and they are all big men. Their appetite can't be compared to us. And it tastes this good, one person will have at least two or three. The three hundred are not enough to share." Lin Qing He said with a smile.

"Are there that many people in your unit?" Aunt froze and looked at her suspiciously.

 Even if one person gets three, three hundred are enough for one hundred men.

Lin Qing He laughed: "Just our unit doesn't need so many. Isn't there a unit next door? However, I'll take those three hundred first. Auntie, what do you think it should be pack in? I'll take it to them first to see if they like it. If they like to eat them, you may have to work hard and do overtime today. Been working overtime for a while, so the workplace order snacks.”

"What kind of workplace are you in? To need a big girl to come out to handle this?" The aunt saw that she wasn't fooling her, so she took out a foam box and spoke.

It's a bit like a foam box that contains popsicles when you were a kid.

"How about using this box?" said the aunt. Because construction sites order buns, so the store had these big boxes, specially reserved for packaging buns.

"Okay." Lin Qing He saw it looked very clean, nodded, and replied to her last question: "This wasn't appointed for me to do. My sister-in-law is responsible for the few unit's meals, but she has a cold. I have no choice but to help her out? Auntie, your bun is good, a lot of filling and clean. This is famous in the area, everyone will definitely like it, and my sister-in-law can also rest. "

Although these words are full of loopholes, under the rendering of Lin Qing He's colorful rubbish, the aunt didn't care about it that much.

First packed up three foam boxes for her, because some had not been steamed yet, so the aunt asked Lin Qing He to wait for her. Lin Qing He said that she'll take the three foam boxes first and told the aunt to continue steaming for her and she will take the already steamed ones in the foam box to her workplace first and will return soon.

Although there were some loopholes in Lin Qing He's remarks, it was true she got matters to handle. The payment was cleared in one go, so the aunt didn't doubt anything. Under Lin Qing He's bargaining, the aunt reduced the price by twenty yuan.

Although it's only twenty yuan, Lin Qing He doesn't mind the saving was small. She can't wait to divide one cent into two cents. Twenty yuan is enough for her to refuel.

 After leaving the breakfast shop, Lin Qing He parked the car in a quiet, deserted place, and directly put three foam boxes into the space.

Then she headed straight to the nearby market.

She came to buy eggs.

She usually cooks herself and treats herself, so she comes to this market to shop.

As soon as Lin Qing He arrived there, she bought up the free-range egg from a local old aunt.

It was because they are familiar and she also knows the old aunt's eggs are the freshest, and basically, none are broken.

Speaking of about, there are also free-range eggs sold in supermarkets. Those eggs are also cheaper, but they have to be picked carefully, otherwise, it was easy to buy bad ones.

Although the eggs of this old aunt are a bit expensive, Lin Qing He doesn't mind buying from her. And this transaction, the old aunt also gave her a little discount.

It was the old aunt’s son who carried them over to the market for her to be sold. Lin Qing He came over at that time. The old aunt's son hadn’t left because he will help the morning rush, otherwise, the old aunt can't handle on her own.

So Lin Qing He asked the young man to load her two baskets of eggs into the vehicle.

Two baskets of eggs got loaded in, Lin Qing He immediately settled the money including two baskets and carrying pole. Then sent him away.

Knowing that the other party would be confused, Lin Qing He ignored it. Anyway, she gave him enough money.

BTTS Teaser 1

T/N: As I am temporarily laid off from work, a.k.a unemployed and got nothing to do at home other than reading or playing games. So when I see some interesting synopsis, I'll translate it, add it to my 'in consideration' list under the novel translation page and do some teaser. I'll be delighted if you guys can comment on your thoughts on the novels. It'll help me when I choose the main project or potential side projects.




Chapter 1 Personal Interspatial Space part1

"Mother, I'm so hungry. "

In the single apartment, Lin Qing He opened her eyes on her bed and was in a daze. After a while, she sighed frankly.

She grabbed the phone at the bedside and checked the time. It was only 5:30 in the morning, and it was May in the lunar calendar. The sky outside was already bright at this time.

Lin Qing He put down her phone silently, and then a magical scene happened. Out of nowhere a glass of water in her hands!

Lin Qing He observed this cup of hot water which was still steaming. It was just like when she put it in last night.

Taking in the phenomenon within her eyes, Lin Qinghe no longer hesitated, she got up to wash up.

She was just an ordinary office worker and did it pretty well. She is currently the sales department manager. Although she was ordinary, what happened to her recently was not ordinary.

As she brushed her teeth and saw her dark circles in the mirror, Lin Qing He shook her head again and sighed. Although her heart was in a mess, she did not forget to put on her makeup.

No one would believe her if she talked about it. For three consecutive nights, the dream she had contained a child who grabbed her, called her mother and ask for something to eat. The dream felt so real, it nearly scared her witless.

At first, she thought she was too tired as she had recently worked overtime, so she didn't care.

But the second night, she had the exact same dream. Along with this dream, an interspatial space of about ten square meters appeared in her body. It was about the same size as her single apartment.

This scared her.

But probably because she had the habit of reading novels, her ability to accept was relatively strong. Of course, this is also related to her strong tenacity.

In short, she accepted quickly.

The interspatial space on her body is in the palm of her hand. With just a thought, she can see it. The space was like a storage box. Last night, she put a cup of hot water into it as an experiment and it was exactly the same when she took it out in the morning. The temperature didn't change at all.

This is enough to prove that the space was unchanging. The condition it was in when placed inside, is the condition it'll be when taken out.

And just now, the child was in her dream again, calling her Mother and saying he was hungry. And then she was awakened.

But this time, she finally didn't hesitate anymore. The strong uneasiness in her heart made her have an intuition that something strange would happen, so she had to make some preparations.

Because she saw in the ‘dream’ that the place was extremely poor, she wondered whether if it was in the apocalyptic years. The supplies and food were very scarce. The faces she saw were very vague, but without exception, their bodies were all skinny and faces were sickly yellow.

Although her childhood days weren't easy. But compared to the environment seen in the 'dream', her life growing up under the five star, red flag (basically Chinese flag) in the early days of reform, food and clothing was not a problem. It is impossible to imagine that(the dream) kind of living environment.

Her novel was not read in vain, and now she had an additional interspatial space on her. She believes that if she didn't do anything else, then maybe by chance transmigrated to the apocalyptic era, she will starve to death!

Soon Lin Qing He finished washing and sorting herself. She took out a pen and paper and began to count the supplies to be purchased. The basic seven (firewood, rice, oil, salt, soy, vinegar, tea) had to be prepared with the exception of firewood and tea.

Among them, rice and oil are the top priority!

Lin Qing He replaced the firewood and tea with brown sugar and rock sugar. White sugar isn't necessary. Rock sugar was enough to replace it. Eggs were added to the notebook.

In the dream place, something like eggs is definitely an asset currency.

In addition to the eggs, there was meat. No matter what kind of meat, she had to get some anyway.

And also medicines, for emergencies, colds, fevers, bloating and diarrhea are all necessary. And needed to buy some oil/menthol balm for all kinds of aches.

One box of these things was sufficient, and will not occupy much space.

After writing these, Lin Qing He felt that the food supplies were almost enough.

Then she started to write the rest. She didn’t know if it was cold there or not, but warm quilts had to be prepared. The mattresses had to be prepared as well. All of it needed to be grey and not colorful because she saw in the 'dream', the place is gray and white. There was no color at all.

Thinking of this, forgive Lin Qing He's natural optimism and there were some heavy exhales. (T/N:???)

Afterward, materials began to be added again. There were some personal items of her own. Although the materials were important, she also wanted to leave some private space for herself to buy some female personal items, which were also equally important to her.

 Few pages are written full of materials. She looked back and forth several times to make sure she didn't have anything left out and then sighed in relief.

Then she started counting her savings.

 After checking a few times, her saving was only 50,000 yuan.

For her who had been working as a department manager for just a few years after graduation, this deposit is naturally small. But there was no other way, as her expenses weren't small on most days.

Cosmetics are a necessity. Every so often, she goes shopping or eats out with my friends, which one didn't cost money?

From the current her, one can't find the shadow of the past.

She was an orphan girl abandoned by her parents. She grew up with her grandmother in rural from a young age. When she was a sophomore, her grandmother passed away. From them on she fed herself until she graduated from college to find a job.

Although life wasn't easy, she still persisted. Now she was living very well.

Originally she wanted to save a down payment, and when the time comes for her to get a house for herself so that got her to save on some expenses and try not to be part of the moonlight group.

She still had more than 2,000 yuan of loose money on her, plus 50,000 in her card, it's a total of more than 52,000 yuan.

Straight out, she rented a minibus online.

It was a driver's license she got from the time she studied in college and work. At that time, she wanted to make some money as a chauffeur. Later, I dislike the fact it was little money and lots of trouble, so she dropped it.

It was a young man who rented out the minibus. Because he wants to go back to his hometown for a few days, so he planned to rent it out. He originally thought of just giving it go, and didn’t expect someone would really rent it.

 After Lin Qing He contacted him and heard that urgently need it, he drove it over. It was not too far away and arrived downstair in around ten minutes.

 Lin Qing He paid the deposit online, so there is no need to pay anymore. After trying to drive it, it was very smooth, even if she hadn't driven for a long time.

Although the minibus was a bit old, there was only one row of seats behind the seat, and the last row was dismantled to become a minibus that could carry goods. Lin Qing He was very satisfied.

Sending off the vehicle's young owner, who tried to strike a conversation with her, she carried her bag and hit the road.

She hadn't had breakfast yet, so better to eat breakfast before you start fighting.

This breakfast shop was a ten-minute drive from the apartment where she lives. The journey was short. Lin Qing He was aware she's a foodie. But she can't come here often because the location wasn't on the way to work.
