The big goose stewed in the iron pot is steaming hot, and the aroma overflows the whole yard.
The yellow corn cakes are soft, tough, and delicious, accompanied by tender goose meat, soft potatoes, and very appetizing sauerkraut. It is almost impossible to stop one’s chopsticks from moving .
Granny Li didn’t eat much, so she stopped her chopsticks after a while and watched Jiang Zhao and Xiao Siye eat with a smile. She is actually a Northeasterner who married far away to Y City, so she cooks authentic Northeastern cuisine, and because she has lived in Y City for a long time, she also knows the local cuisine of Y City well.
His husband left early, and her children all work in big cities. Although they pay and deliver things to her every month, she is very lonely. When the program team found her, she was actually very happy, not only because there were other people who could taste the food she made, but also because there were young people with vitality who could tell her about new things outside.
When Jiang Zhao ate the fourth tortilla, he felt that he had almost eaten himself fully. Out of professional habit, he usually eats six or seven points to be full, but today he has indulged himself until he is almost nine points full.
Granny Li noticed that the speed at which he lifted his chopsticks had slowed down, and asked with concern, “Are you full? Not enough, you guys can eat very well, can you eat another one?”
She handed over a new tortilla with a smile, Jiang Zhao paused his chopsticks, and pursed his lower lip lightly.
Xiao Siye suddenly raised his hand to take the cake: “Grandma, he has a small appetite, so let me eat it for him.”
It’s just that Jiang Zhao slapped the palm of his hand before his hand touched the tortilla.
“Who said I wouldn’t eat it?” Jiang Zhao glanced at him, “Grandma gave it to me, you just want to eat it and take it yourself.”
He thanked her, took the tortilla and started eating again. Granny Li burst into laughter for a while.
Xiao Siye was also dumbfounded for a moment and smiled silently.
In the end, the meal ended with Jiang Zhao eating six corn tortillas. After the meal, he and Xiao Siye helped wash the dishes and pots together, and chatted with grandma Li for a few hours, until the night got dark, and after leaving her house, Jiang Zhao still felt that she was holding on very hard.
After returning to the small courtyard, Jiang Zhao stood under the magnolia tree for a while, but still couldn’t help walking outside the courtyard: “No, I have to go for a run.”
Xiao Siye: “I’m going to call the dog next door.”
Jiang Zhao: ” Are you crazy?”
Why are you calling a dog in the middle of the night? Does this person think that dogs don’t even need to sleep?
Xiao Siye nodded: “Then let’s run.”
After a while, Jiang Zhao reacted to something in the night wind.
He turned to look at the person beside him: “No, I’m running, what are you doing?”
Xiao Siye raised the collar of his coat: “Running, just like you.”
Jiang Zhao glared at him: “Can’t we run separately?”
Xiao Siyesaid righteously: “No, I’m afraid of the dark.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
You are afraid of the dark, but what does it have to do with Lao Tzu!
Having said that, Jiang Zhao still didn’t say those words, but snorted coldly and continued to run, disguisedly tacitly acquiescing to the existence of a human-shaped dog beside him.
The night in the small village is very quiet, there are no street lights, only the gates of a few households are dimly lit. It is precise because of this kind of night that the bright moon above their head is so shining, the cold white moonlight is like a transparent yarn, leaving a light blue in every place as if it fell into a place that does not exist, like water in the lake.
The environment here is also very good. Jiang Zhao is used to the night sky with few stars in the city. At this time, the Milky Way spreads above his head, which makes him always want to look up.
“The boat is full of dreams and the stars are overwhelmed.” Jiang Zhao couldn’t help but sigh.
Xiao Siye reminded him, “If you run like this, it’s easy to fall into the pit.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Jiang Zhao looked at him coolly: “Are you allergic to romance?”
He stepped forward and quickened his pace, just as there was a small slope in front of him, Jiang Zhao thought about keeping a distance from the dog behind him, so he stepped up a little bigger.
Unexpectedly, he just ran to the bottom of the slope, and suddenly stepped on the stone.
Jiang Zhao: “!”
His body fell uncontrollably into the cornfield next to him, and between the lightning and flint, Jiang Zhao felt a hand grab onto his wrist.
He immediately clenched his rival’s hand as if he had grabbed a life-saving straw, and yanked it violently.
The sky is spinning.
After a muffled sound, the tip of Jiang Zhao’s nose slammed against Xiao Siye’s collarbone, which almost caused him to burst into tears. And Xiao Siye padded under him, with his back on the corn ground, and he took a deep breath: “Repaying kindness with revenge.”
Only then did Jiang Zhao realize that he had just pulled Xiao Siye, who had wanted to hold him, with a single hand, and he also changed his position by mistake, making Xiao Siye as his cushion.
He felt a little guilty and wanted to stand up, but Xiao Siyesuddenly held his waist: “Wait a minute.”
Jiang Zhao: “What are you doing?”
Xiao Siye put his other hand behind his head, and said lazily, “Since we are both lying down, let’s look at the stars for a while.”
Jiang Zhao: “…I can only see the ground from this angle.”
Xiao Siye: “Ah, doubling words, disgusting.”
Jiang Zhao: “.”
Xiao Siye smiled lowly and let go of him. When Jiang Zhao got up, he glared at him again, then turned around and lay down beside Xiao Siye with his hands behind his head.
The corn bushes are swaying in the wind, the stars and rivers are bright, and the lights and shadows flow.
After returning to the courtyard, Jiang Zhao finally remembered to take out his mobile phone to read the news.
As soon as he opened WeChat, he was bombarded by Qin Youyou’s unread 99+, so he simply made a phone call and before he had time to speak, Qin Youyou started yelling: “I told you to rely on me, what happened! Why did Qingqing apologize to you on Weibo again? I don’t know how many surprises you have, Jiang Zhao!”
Jiang Zhao recounted everything that happened from last night until now and said, “That’s it.”
Qin Youyou took a deep breath: “She is really plotting against you, oh, I’m really a prophet, you won’t kill me, right?”
Jiang Zhao sneered: “Do you remember what you said last time?”
Qin Youyou: “…”
She also didn’t expect that last time she just mentioned it to Jiang Zhao casually before going out, and as a result, Jiang Zhao’s senior brother really became Xiao Siye.
She smiled with a guilty conscience: ” Anyway, you just met at the old Tang’s house, and you can’t fight at all, and you’re still shooting a variety show recently, you’re not dating right?”
Jiang Zhao: “.”
Jiang Zhao pinched his eyebrows: “I beg you to stop talking.”
Qin Youyou: “…?”
Damn it, can’t you?!
“The water in the bathroom is ready, do you wash first or do I wash first?”
A calm and magnetic male voice came from outside the bedroom, Jiang Zhao’s complexion changed, and Qin Youyou immediately began to frantically lie: “Jiang Zhao, I heard right, isn’t that Xiao Siye? You two still live together—”
Jiang Zhao quickly hung up the phone, turned his head, and said, “You go first.”
He clicked on WeChat, and Qin Youyou sent him a series of more than ten panda heads with shocked expressions.
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He took a deep breath: “I live with him temporarily in a courtyard because of the variety show and have no other contact.”
Qin Youyou replied in seconds: “It’s scary. I just mentioned Xiao Siye, and he came out and asked you if you want to go to the bathroom. Next time, I’ll believe you if you both fall asleep.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Jiang Zhao: “I just ordered two bags for you.”
Qin Youyou: “Is this a surprise Christmas present for me? [Star Eyes] [Star Eyes]”
Jiang Zhao: “This is the hush money for begging you to shut up. [Smiles]”
Qin Youyou: “…”
Qin Youyou: “qaq”
Jiang Zhao turned off WeChat and felt a little heartbroken.
The ghost knew how terrified he felt when he saw the phrase “sleep”. Why didn’t he realize that Qin Youyou had such an outrageous talent for prediction before, it was a pity not to participate in the Werewolf Killing Variety Show.
He clicked on Weibo to change his mood. It was almost twelve o’clock now, but the hot search was still lively. What Jiang Zhao discussed with Zuo Xiaoqiu before was to wait until the turmoil subsides a little tomorrow, and then release their clarification and real hammer.
Although Xu Qingqing’s studio apologized, Xu Qingqing’s own Weibo is still hanging there, and there is no intention to delete it, which means that this apology is only the manager’s own attitude, not Xu Qingqing’s.
Jiang Zhao didn’t know whether she was being sanctioned by the legal wife now, or whether she was breaking a jar. In short, it had nothing to do with him.
Xu Qingqing’s agent was still begging them to let Xu Qingqing go, but Jiang Zhao only asked Zuo Xiaoqiu to reply with four words: “It’s your own fault.”
Is it possible that the other party has been retaliated miserably by others, and he has to be a merciful holy father regardless of the slander he has suffered?
Jiang Zhao flipped through Weibo for a while, then got up and went to the table to pour a glass of water. As soon as he picked up the kettle, the phone that Xiao Siye put on the table vibrated, and the caller ID was “Sister Zhao”.
Xiao Siye’s manager doesn’t seem to have this surname.
Jiang Zhao thought so in his heart, blinked, and felt that his thoughts were very inexplicable, ,it was his business what he want to call others.
The phone rang three or four times and hung up when no one answered. When Xiao Siye finished washing and returned to the bedroom, Jiang Zhao kindly reminded: “Someone called you just now, Sister Zhao.”
Xiao Siye wiped his hair and said, “Did you look at my phone?”
Rarely did he have any smile on his face, and he seemed to be a little serious.
Jiang Zhao was stunned for a moment, then frowned: “Who the fuck is interested in your phone.”
Before Xiao Siye could speak, Jiang Zhao jumped out of bed, grabbed his changed clothes and went to the bathroom.
Looking at his back, Xiao Siye secretly breathed a sigh of relief. After the sound of water came from the bathroom, he called Sister Zhao again.
“Brother Xiao, I’m sorry about what happened tonight, but I’m so relieved today,” the other party’s voice was as cheerful as ever, “This time I finally got the evidence of that bastard’s derailment, and I would like to thank you for your help. What can I do for you in the future? If I can help, just tell sister!”
Xiao Siye smiled: “Sister, as I said last time, I have selfish intentions and helped you.”
“Even if you have any selfish intentions, you still helped me. One yard is one yard, and when you return to the capital, the sister will take care of you!”
In the bathroom, Jiang Zhao stood under the shower head for a while, still feeling a little upset.
Xiao Siye had a different expression just now. He really thought he would look at his cell phone? What’s so good about a broken phone?
… Or, that Sister Zhao, is it an existence that Xiao Siye can’t let others know about?
Jiang Zhao pondered for a while in the rushing water, and suddenly a flash of inspiration came.
——That would not be the rich woman who took care of Xiao Siye, is it?
