“Xiao Nien is eleven years younger than me,” Xiao Siye said, dropping his eyes. “our parents died early, so we depend on each other.”
Jiang Zhao immediately froze.
He didn’t get it, and Xiao Siye came up with such a surprising remark.
He suddenly regretted saying that he wanted to hear as if he were forcing Xiao Siye to tear open the old scars and show him the bloodstained past.
“You don’t have to say it “, Jiang Zhao pursed his lower lip.” I. ”
Before he had finished, Xiao Siye suddenly turned sideways and lay face to face with him.
The amber eyes stared at him in the middle of the night, as if he could see through his heart.
“No,” Xiao Siye said in a low voice. “do you know? He’s the only family I have in the world. ”
Jiang Zhao opened his eyes slightly.
A moment later, he looked more serious and said, “go ahead.”
Xiao Siye looked at his ready appearance, picked gently at the corners of his lips, and then told the story of his life with his brother Xiao Nien in a flat tone.
Xiao Siye’s mother died young, and less than two years later, his father died in the line of duty. Since junior high school, Xiao Siye began to raise his younger brother on his own.
Xiao Nien is a cute child with a unilateral dimple inherited from his mother on his cheek, but he is a real bear child.
Xiao Siye’s exact words are:
“he dared to run to the roof at the age of three, ran around with the dog next door at the age of five, and ran away from home with a group of children at the age of seven. It is said that he didn’t do his homework, so he had to find a mountain to revolt and fight for blood.”
Jiang Zhao’s eyes widened: “really bleeding?”
Xiao Siye mocked without hesitation: “they went to the fried chicken shop at the door for ketchup.”
Later, Xiao Siye was admitted to the university, and Xiao Nien’s school grade could not be transferred from Jiangcheng to the capital, so Xiao Siye especially found a nanny to take care of his food and shelter. He worked a work-study program not only for his own living expenses but also for his own brother.
Since he went to school, Xiao Nien’s mischief has decreased a lot and he even began to learn obediently.
What he said most often was that he wanted to go to junior high school in the capital and live in the same city with his brother.
“I lied to him,” Xiao Siye laughed. “he loved the sea, so I told him that there was a sea in the capital. I just made my debut in acting that year, and I got a little fame. I found a network that would allow him to come to the capital to attend junior high school, but his grades must be good.”
“and then he came through the exam?” Jiang Zhao blinked.
“well, after the exam,” Xiao Siye nodded. “I took him to HouhaiHouhai is a lake and its surrounding neighborhood in Xicheng District of central Beijing, China. Houhai is the largest of the three lakes, along with Qianhai ‘Front Lake’ and Xihai … Continue reading and told him, look, this is the sea. What a nice place.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Jiang Zhao: “if I had such a brother, I might not live long.”
“so later, I took advantage of the location of the crew to take him to see the sea during the summer vacation before he went to high school,” Xiao Siye said with a chuckle.
“then I asked him to go to the other side of the sea to have a look.”
Jiang Zhaoyi was stupefied: “He didn’t make a fuss?”
Obviously, he studied so hard so he could finally get the chance to live in the same city with his brother. However, it was only a short three years of junior high school, and then he went to a more distant place.
Xiao Siye said calmly, “He usually just talks to me every month for his living expenses.”
Jiang Zhao: “.”
This is indeed a brother.
“like his mother, he likes to draw, and it will be better for his future development,” Xiao Siye said, not knowing he smiled slightly. ” I don’t have that much time to take care of him. ”
Jiang Zhao couldn’t help feeling, “doesn’t it feel good to have a brother? I have been an only child since I was a child, and I have been begging for a younger brother and sister. ”
“but later, Old Jiang told me that when my mother was pregnant with me, she was pregnant and vomited for several months, and she dared not go out the door. Other people were pregnant, but her face was so thin that she lost alot weight. So I changed my tone and began to cry to my mother that if she gave birth to my brother and sister, I would be an unwanted little wretch. ”
Xiao Siye, suddenly thought of a small dumpling like Jiang Zhao crying, the tip of his nose and cheeks are red, tears rolled down like crystal clear golden beans, while choked up that he did not want brothers and sisters.
Who can resist being soft?
“the truth is that he’s not that good,” Xiao Siye said, suppressing the smile in his eyes remembering when he said “sister-in-law” during the Spring Festival. “But, he’s not bad. ”
The chat lasted until two o’clock. Jiang Zhao did not know when he fell asleep, but as soon as he opened his eyes, he saw that the sky was bright.
He suddenly sat up from the bed, only to find that his side was empty and there was no remaining temperature. It looked as if Xiao Siye had gotten up a long time ago.
Now that he has gone, it seems that there should be no social death scene in which he pulled Xiao Siye and refused to let people go this morning.
Jiang Zhao immediately settled down, got out of bed and washed, changed his clothes and went downstairs.
There were only He Jinuo and Wang Zuosi downstairs, who was pouring milk into glasses. The smell of fried eggs came from the kitchen. Jiang Zhao hardly had to guess who it was.
“Senior! Good morning! ”
“good morning, Jiang Zhao.”
Jiang Zhao said hello to the two in turn, then turned into the kitchen, and sure enough, he saw Xiao Siye wearing an apron.
The apron provided by the program group is made of small broken flowers, but it has a strange sense of harmony when worn by Xiao Siye.
“what are you cooking this morning, Xiao Siye?” Jiang Zhao approached the pot.
During the week he lived with Xiao Siye, he was used to waking up every morning and going to the kitchen to see what breakfast he was making.
Xiao Siye is like a walking recipe, always able to find many new tricks, and eating every day is like opening a blind box, which makes him feel refreshed.
But perhaps because of the limited ingredients of the crew, Xiao Siye only made the most ordinary Fried Egg with Ham this time. However, another pot contains a pot of freshly made tomato spaghetti, which is Jiang Zhao’s favorite taste.
Jiang Zhao could not help nodding, feeling that today’s Xiao Siye is still good.
In a moment, Qin Youyou and Jiang Han went downstairs together. Xiao Siye just brought the last fried egg to the table and said with a smile, “it happens that we are complete. Let’s eat.”
Jiang Han sighed happily: “with Brother Xiao, I can really be lazy.”
“You cook all this?” Qin Youyou exclaimed, “Wow, this is a good family man.”
Qin Youyou immediately went to Jiang Zhao’s bad cooking. No wonder Jiang Zhao didn’t talk about delicious takeout shops these days, and his face became ruddy a lot-this is a cook hidden in the golden house.
Jiang Zhao smiled: “If you don’t dislike the craft of home cooking, it will be fine.”
He Jinuo vaguely bit the bread with fried eggs: “Senior Xiao’s cooking is often good!”
Wang Zuosiu, who was inhaled by the storm, gave a thumbs up.
In the scattered laughter, Xiao Siye pulled his stool, sat next to Jiang Zhao, and brought a fresh side to Jiang Zhao.
Jiang Zhao was slightly stupefied, and he found that there seemed to be something under the spaghetti.
He quietly picked up the chopsticks and poked them, which was a lot of sliced ham.
“Shh,” Xiao Siye whispered, “No one else has it.”
Jiang Zhao immediately put back the spaghetti as if nothing had happened.
” Is it Childish or not? ”
He whispered to Xiao Siye, but the corners of his lips showed his happy mood.
It’s like getting a candy that is different from others, so in the bottom of his heart, he quietly bloomed a bunch of flowers.
“Today’s task is wharf fishing,” cried Director Du while holding a trumpet. “lunch is the fish we caught tonight, so the family should work hard!”
Jiang Zhao stood by the trestle of the wharf carrying a fishing bucket, looking up at the not sunny weather overhead, inexplicably a little uneasy.
The weather forecast says there will be 30% rainfall today, but the clouds overhead have been brewing all morning and show no sign of dissipating.
“Senior,” He Jinuo was curious, “what are you looking at?”
Jiang Zhao paused, raised his hand and pointed to the distance: “look.”
He Qinuo immediately looked intently.
But he looked at it for a long time, as if there was only a dark cloud there, and there was nothing but the sky.
Jiang Zhao asked solemnly, “what do you see?”
He Jinuo was a little confused: ” It’s like, there’s nothing. ”
Jiang Zhao nodded with relief: “that’s right.”
Carrying a fishing rod, he walked leisurely to the dock. A moment later, He Jinuo reacted in disbelief: “Senior.”… Are you kidding me? ”
Wang Zuosi patted his brother on the shoulder sympathetically: “Yes, Xiao He.”
Not far away, Xiao Siye put down his fishing tackle in the position next to Jiang Zhao with a smile: “it turns out that my brother likes to flirt with children.”
Jiang Zhao glanced at him: “this is not a good teaching of seniors.”
Xiao Siye looked innocent: “when have I flirt, brother?”
Jiang Zhao: “?”
He said something, didn’t he, but on second thought, didn’t he admit in front of the camera that he used to flirt?
It was he who chose to change the subject: “are you going to play today?”
Xiao Siye threw the bait-wrapped hook out and hooked his lips and said, “Yes, but since it’s a competition, there should be a bit of a reward, right? ”
Jiang Zhao looked at the sea level not far away. “what reward does the senior want?”
There was a glimmer of light in Xiao Siye’s eyes and said, “if I win, how about agreeing to a request?”
Jiang Zhao said without thinking, “No problem.”
As soon as there was a goal ahead, Jiang Zhao’s desire to win or lose flared up in an instant, staring intently at the place where he got off the hook.
He had learned to fish with Old Jiang. Although he had never been to the seaside, he was still “skilled” and soon had a fish catch. He did not know if Xiao Siye had a similar experience and was familiar with his movements, and it was not long before he caught the first fish.
These two people caught a lot of fish, and there is almost no empty pole, which is in sharp contrast to Qin Youyou, who is still fighting wits with the entangled fishing line.
After half of the fishing, Qin Youyou simply quit and squatted down beside them to act as a referee.
“Jiang Zhao’s thirteenth fish–”
“the Fifteenth fish of Xiao Siye–”
Jiang Zhao’s lips gradually tightened, and for some reason, he always lagged behind a fish.
The duration of their game is based on the ball of bait in their hands, and after both sides have finished using it, they begin to count the number of each other. But now they had only a little bait left, and he was about to lose.
Jiang Zhao slurped in his heart, figuring out how many times the bait in his hand should be used, when the pole in his hand suddenly sank.
Jiang Zhao held his breath and immediately clenched the fishing rod with both hands, but at this moment, the fishing line not far away suddenly tugged and almost pulled his fishing rod out of his hand!
“it’s a big catch!” Qin Youyou exclaimed beside him.
Jiang Zhao stood up directly and suddenly pulled the fishing rod back so that the fishing rod stretched into a very curved bow.
But the strength of the fish still surpassed his The muscles of Jiang Zhao’s arms were so tight that he wanted to pull the fish back, but as the saying goes, one jin of fish weighs ten jin and the strength of the fish can be released several times in the water. Jiang Zhao can almost feel a strong force drag him to the sea.
In this tug-of-war, Jiang Zhao felt a little bad.
……. The fishing line seems to be breaking.
The next second, Jiang Zhao found that his brain was fucking open!
With a sharp break in the wind, the thin fishing line broke off abruptly, and Jiang Zhao’s body fell back out of control because he lost the pulling force.
But he did not stumble to the ground but fell directly into a broad embrace.
He did not know when Xiao Siye caught him from behind, he put his hand on his elbow and helped him stand still, frowning: “are you all right?”
Jiang Zhao’s breathing paused.
After a few seconds, he turned his head a little uncomfortably: “…No.”
Qin Youyou let out a scream next to him, “the fishing rod of Xiao Siye has been dragged away!”
Jiang Zhao: “?”
Xiao Siye: “……?!”
When the two men looked into the sea at the same time, they saw Xiao Siye’s fishing rod flying out in the air, drawing a parabola, and then riding off the dust on the sea.
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Xiao Siye: “…”
It seems that this fish can’t be caught.
