The next morning, Jiang Zhao woke up from the bed before six o’clock.
He doesn’t like to get up early, but as soon as he goes to a strange place, it’s easy to wake up naturally in the morning.
It was very early in the morning in the south, and a light blue sky was already emerging outside the window. When Jiang Zhao got up, he glanced at the time. He thought he was the first to get up, but Xiao Siye’s place turned out to be empty.
Jiang Zhao calmly thought about the possibility of getting up at four o’clock tomorrow and killing Xiao Siye.
He went to the yard to wash up. After the torrential rain last night, the air in the yard was filled with a fresh and moist feeling, with a hint of coolness, and it smelled very comfortable.
Jiang Zhao took a deep breath, and as soon as he spat out the toothpaste in his mouth, he saw a figure appearing outside the fence in the yard:
Jiang Zhao was too lazy to take care of Xiao Siye, but remembering the earplugs that Xiao Siye handed over last night, the words that were about to be ignored came out of his lips:
For the sake of the earplugs, he barely spared Xiao Siye once.
He lowered his head and washed his face by the pool, when a cheerful voice suddenly came from outside the fence: “Wang Wang! Wang Wang Wang!”
Jiang Zhao paused with the foam of the facial cleanser on his face.
What the heck, Xiao Siye also learning how to bark?
He quickly washed his face, raised his head with water on his face, and found that there was a little yellow dog wagging its tail beside Xiao Siye at some point, his black bean eyes looked particularly cute.
Jiang Zhao felt regretful, it turned out that it was not Xiao Siye who was barking.
“I’m walking the dog for our neighbor, and I’m going for a morning run.” Xiao Siye touched the dog’s furry head and looked at Jiang Zhao again, “Want to go together?”
Jiang Zhao didn’t answer immediately. In all fairness, he didn’t really want to join, and he was already out of the psychological shadow because of the dog at home.
However, after six o’clock, the camera of the program team was opening one after another. As the only two people who got up, if Xiao Siye went for a morning run, he would be sitting in the yard waiting for breakfast and it would be a bad comparison.
After hesitating for a few seconds, Jiang Zhao pushed open the door of the small courtyard:
In the early morning in the mountains, the wind gently brushed against the skin, and the air was filled with the smell of wet soil after the rain. The hills and terraced fields in the distance were hidden in the clouds and mist, like ink paintings. Jiang Zhao felt relaxed and happy after watching it for a while.
Dogs in the countryside are not on a leash, but the little yellow dog is very spiritual. Even if it is freed, it will not run around. If Sa Huan’er runs a certain distance, it will consciously stop and wait for Jiang Zhao and Xiao Siye. He doesn’t know how to compare this dog and the one running around in Jiang Zhao’s house.
Most of the villagers in the village got up to do farm work. Those unfamiliar faces were all kind and enthusiastic, but Jiang Zhao didn’t know any of them, so he habitually wanted to pass them by.
But Xiao Siye, who was beside him, greeted every villager passing by in a very easy-going manner and even took Jiang Zhao with him.
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He felt the fear when he was following Mrs. Xu back to his hometown for New Year’s greetings when he was a child.
But social cows naturally has the benefits of a social cow. When they ran back to the courtyard, Jiang Zhao had a basket of freshly steamed rice cakes and a bag of apples in his arms, and Xiao Siye carried a small basket of fresh eggs. The village eggs were given to them by the hospitable villagers, and even the little yellow dog got a meat bone as a gift.
Back in the yard, the others were already getting up one after another. Jiang Zhao put the things into the kitchen, and just picked up a washed apple and took a bite, when he saw Jiang Han walk in: “Brother Jiang, Brother Xiao, why are you up so early?”
Xiao Siye said, “I went to the village to go door-to-door to pay homage to my early years.”
Jiang Han was happy: “No wonder you brought back so much lucky money.”
When she passed by Jiang Zhao, she suddenly gently pulled Jiang Zhao’s sleeve and whispered, “Brother Jiang, Qingqing was in a bad mood last night, and she went out to call and cry in the middle of the night.”
After she finished speaking, she went to look at the dishes in the kitchen with a smile and discussed with Xiao Siye what to do for breakfast today, as if she hadn’t said anything just now.
Jiang Zhao accepted Jiang Han’s reminder without changing his face.
Who can Xu Qingqing call? Of course, it was the sponsor who sent her to the show. The sponsor will definitely ask the show team. It is estimated that the director was bombarded by phone calls last night.
But no matter what reason Xu Qingqing finds to be a demon, she is always just a traffic actor who depends on other people and poses no real threat to Jiang Zhao.
Jiang Zhao took pity on the director for a second in his heart, returned to the yard, and continued to eat apples while sitting on the low stool under the tree.
When he finished eating slowly and teased the little yellow dog with the remaining fruit pits, Xu Qingqing walked out of the bedroom.
She changed into a new dress, and there was nothing unusual about her, but the gaze she looked at him was not as warm as yesterday, and she hurriedly looked away.
Judging from her appearance, she probably didn’t get a good response. Jiang Zhao’s mood suddenly improved a bit, and even the dog who was rolling around in front of him felt a lot more refined.
Meanwhile, by the well in the backyard.
Xu Qingqing walked to He Jinuo who was fetching water from the tank: “Xiao He.”
He Jinuo shuddered all over, and almost threw the bucket in his hand back into the well: “Qing…Sister Qingqing.”
“Am I so scary?” Xu Qingqing pouted in dissatisfaction, and He Jinuo quickly apologized: “I’m sorry, Sister Qingqing, I’m timid.”
There is no camera in the backyard, Xu Qingqing simply became bolder, and directly stretched out his hand and grabbed He Jinuo’s arm, smiling like a flower: “Oh, I didn’t mean to talk about you, I just wanted to discuss something with you.”
He Jinuo resisted the urge to run away, like a little hedgehog being stared at by a beautiful snake, shivering: “What, what?”
Xu Qingqing’s expression was extremely innocent: “As you know, my task was done by Brother Jiang yesterday. He seems to have a little opinion of me. I want to find a chance to apologize to Brother Jiang. I’ll have a chance later, but can you help me call Brother Jiang over? If I take the initiative to call him, he will definitely not come. ”
He Jinuo was stunned: “This…”
“Xiao He,” Xu Qingqing clenched her hand and looked expectantly, “You will help me, right?”
He Jinuo shivered.
He hurriedly tore off her hand, almost crying: “Sister Qingqing, I’m sorry, but I really can’t do this kind of thing, I, I…”
In a hurry, he picked up the wooden barrel next to him, shouted “I’m going to the kitchen to help”, and fled.
Seeing the figure of He Jinuo quickly disappearing, Xu Qingqing’s smile disappeared completely.
With a gloomy expression, she spat on the ground, “Coward.”
At nine o’clock in the morning, the guests of the program group received a task to go up the mountain to pick up tea.
With a pair of dark circles under his eyes, the director shouted with a loudspeaker: “The task is limited to three hours. The tea leaves picked by everyone will be reviewed by our professionals. Only the tea leaves that pass the review can be weighted. As for the reward for completing the task, you can receive our local famous Y City rice noodle-”
Following the director’s introduction, an aunt from the village walked around in front of everyone smiling with a bowl of steaming rice noodles.
The rice noodle soup was red, and the rice noodles were white. More than a dozen different seasonings were colorful and exuded a strong aroma. The thick layer of minced meat on the top made people’s index fingers move.
Jiang Zhao immediately felt that the rice cakes he ate in the morning were not fragrant.
“Only after completing the task can we eat rice noodles,” the director waved, “Okay, now go up the mountain!”
Led by local tea farmers, the group followed the winding path between the terraced fields.
On the mountain road where it has rained, the soil is very soft, and it will feel a little difficult to walk for a long time. Jiang Zhao regrets wearing a pair of sneakers that are specially designed just to match his clothes today. It takes a lot of physical strength for the journey up the mountain.
Fortunately, the mountain road was not long. They walked for less than 20 minutes, and the tea tree waiting to be picked appeared not far away.
“It’s coming soon.” The elder brother who led them up the mountain pointed to the red rope above a tea tree. “It’s that piece. Any tree tied with the red rope can be picked.”
Not far from Jiang Zhao’s right hand, there was a tea tree tied with a red rope. With a move in his heart, he wanted to take a closer look.
However, just as he took a step in the direction of the tea tree, the soil under his feet suddenly lost its sense of reality.
Jiang Han’s exclamation sounded from the side, Jiang Zhao’s heart skipped a beat, and he slipped back uncontrollably.
However, just as he lost his balance, he was suddenly supported by a hand from behind his arm, and he fell directly into the man’s arms.
A very light fragrance suddenly invaded Jiang Zhao’s senses from all directions. It was very clean, and it was different from the perfume he had smelled before.
Before he could think about what kind of fragrance it was, a lazy voice with a smile came from behind his ears:
“Don’t want to wake up?”
I’ve been tired because I went to get requirement for school, but this story heals me.
No, we don’t wanna wake up. Just wanna stay asleep in your arms!!!💃
