One second of ecstasy, the next second of great sadness.
He Zheng’s scalp suddenly went numb, and his expression was as frightened as if he had encountered an evil spirit. At this moment, the iron wire that was shaking in the stone wall suddenly popped out unsupported, and a corner of the net collapsed. fell.
“Your Majesty, help ah ah ah-”
He Zheng reflexively held the hat in his arms tightly, the wind whistled in his ears, and his heart raised in his throat, he doubted that he would die.
His waist suddenly tightened, and Fang Tianzhuo also jumped down. When he opened his eyes, he was clinging to Fang Tianzhuo’s chest, the man was holding a vine hanging in the air, looking at him with a gloomy face: “Why are you still holding it?! ”
He Zheng immediately threw away the hat in his arms, hugged Fang Tianzhuo’s neck tightly, and put his hair in a bird’s nest in front of the man’s neck. Fang Tianzhuo stared blankly at him, he felt that He Zheng’s neck was so slender that it would break with a twist. He wrapped his arms around him tightly with one hand, and stepped on the cliff to exert force.
He Zheng was terribly frightened after two bungee jumping experiences in a row without any psychological preparation, until Fang Tianzhuo fell to the ground. His legs hanging from the opponent’s neck were shaking non-stop.
Fang Tianzhuo put down the large pendant on his body, and He Zheng fell to the ground with weak legs, and suddenly started to vomit, even though he hadn’t eaten anything in the morning.
After he finished vomiting, he wiped the tears on his face first.
It’s getting cold.
It’s freezing this time.
He secretly went to see Fang Tianzhuo, and the latter was also looking at him. He Zheng shrank his neck and said, “scared, I was scared to death, how could a rope suddenly emerge from the forest …”… ”
“The tripping rope was placed in order to prevent the contestants from getting close to the cliff and having an accident.”
“Fortunately there is a net under the cliff…”
“To prevent someone from falling off a cliff and casualties, I arranged it.”
“His Majesty is really wise. He has a good plan and is a prophet. If it wasn’t for you, I might have died.” He Zheng grinned, seeing his gloomy and restrained expression, and lowered his head uncomfortably.
Fang Tianzhuo lowered his eyes and suddenly grabbed his foot, He Zheng twitched slightly, only then did he realize that there was a bloodstain on his leg, Fang Tianzhuo tore his trouser legs to fasten him, He Zheng bared his teeth in pain , the other party glanced at him, and he became pale again thinking of ways to please him .
Fang Tianzhuo retracted his hand and suddenly pinched the lower half of his face. He Zheng’s face was suddenly deformed by his powerful fingers. At that moment, the killing intent in Fang Tianzhuo’s eyes seemed to be tangible. Conditionally, he clenched the stone under his body, and his clear eyes instantly poured out water mist. He was in shock, and his breathing seemed to stop.
Fang Tianzhuo’s jaw tightened, He Zheng’s eyes widened and he didn’t dare to blink, but tears fell from the corners of his eyes without any hope. Fang Tianzhuo stared at him for a long time, his eyes were dark and unpredictable.
He Zheng’s face was flushed red, and he gradually felt suffocated. He had no doubt that Fang Tianzhuo would severe his head off in the next second.
After the stalemate, Fang Tianzhuo suddenly let go and hugged him in his arms. The man lowered his head and gently kissed his wet lips, as well as his frightened snow-white face. He suppressed his voice and whispered: “you scared me, you know?”
He Zheng nodded subconsciously.
Fang Tianzhuo reached out and stroked his messy hair, and said softly, “It won’t happen again, right?”
He Zheng looked at him, his thin white fingers tugged at his sleeve, and nodded again.
He still hasn’t broken.
It seems to be simply reminding him to be careful in the future and stop worrying about him.
He Zheng lowered his eyelashes, kissed him again, and said timidly, “How do we go up?”
“Someone will come looking for us.”
He Zheng moved, his stomach growled, Fang Tianzhuo was silent for a moment, put him on the stone, got up and left.
He Zheng suddenly stood up: “You, where are you going?”
Although he was afraid of Fang Tianzhuo, he was even more afraid of the deserted bottom of the cliff, where there might be beasts that eat people, and those things were not the ones that would let him go if he said good things.
“I’ll get something to eat.”
“Can I come with you?” He Zheng pulled the corner of his clothes and looked uneasy. Fang Tianzhuo looked at his legs, and He Zheng hurriedly said: “It doesn’t matter, I, I can go.”
“Sit back.” He ordered, He Zheng retreated in two steps, and sat back on the rock.
Fang Tianzhuo threw the crown at his feet and disappeared in front of him.
He Zheng picked up his crown, thinking that if a lion came to bite him, he would take it out to scare it, it smelled like the most powerful person in the world, maybe it would work.
He waited anxiously for a long time, and Fang Tianzhuo came back with a bloody, skinned rabbit.
He first threw the rabbit aside, picked up dry wood, used a thin slate to set the two stones to raise the fire, then grabbed He Zheng’s leg, and applied the rubbed herbs to the wound and wrapped it tightly again. He Zheng’s face was pale in pain, but he didn’t dare to say a word.
Although this man is now an emperor, his ability to do things himself is not generally strong. He Zheng’s medicine is already applied, so he continues to deal with the rabbit. He watched him cut the rabbit meat into thin slices with a dagger and put it on top of the fire, it will be cooked and fragrant in a short while.
He was a little confused for a while.
For Fang Tianzhuo’s impression, he read a lot of it from the book, knowing that he is aloof, moody, violent, and sees human life like a mustard. But no one told him that he could even hunt game, and after it was baked, the first slice was given to him.
He Zheng stared at the piece of meat he picked up, took it timidly, blew it again, and then slowly put it into his mouth.
Although there is no seasoning, the meat is delicious and full enough.
“I, I’ll do it…” He Zheng didn’t dare to eat all the time and asked to work, but Fang Tianzhuo didn’t stop him, so He Zheng turned the meat on the stone with two thin bamboo poles, while Fang Tianzhuo smashed the meat in pieces.
Neither of them spoke, and Fang Tianzhuo didn’t mention anything about his escape today. He obviously knew everything, he had seen it with his own eyes, and he wanted to kill him, but he could still not say a word of accusation, ask a reason, or mention a word.
He Zheng felt that it was really bad for him to be like this. If he had something in his heart to do, he might as well say it happily, but he thought that if he really said it, it would be a guilty plea, and he felt that this situation also seemed to be good.
He Zheng lowered his head, turned over the slices of meat silently, baked it and folded it, and was about to stuff it into his mouth when he suddenly found Fang Tianzhuo looking at him coldly.
He changed the shape of the mouth that was slightly open to eat, pouted it and blew it twice, and slowly brought it over, said softly, “Your Majesty, eat it.”
Fang Tianzhuo took the meat away with his hand, and He Zheng lowered his head and continued, roasting it and blowing it before feeding it to him.
After they finished eating the rabbit. Fang Tianzhuo chopped bamboo and took the landscape, steamed it on a slate, poured it into another non-scalding bamboo tube, and handed it to him.
The water was a little warm, with a faint scent of bamboo, so He Zheng drank it, faintly feeling full.
Fang Tianzhuo sat beside him, He Zheng continued to hold his crown, and he was speechless for a while, then he whispered: “Your Majesty is strong in martial arts, can’t you fly up?”
“You can stay by yourself?” Fang Tianzhuo asked coldly, and He Zheng immediately shut up.
If he stayed by himself, he would starve to death, or be bitten by wild beasts. He Zheng didn’t think he had any skills for survival in the wild at all, and he didn’t even know how to catch fish.
The bottom of the cliff was shady, and in the afternoon, He Zheng immediately felt a chill. He silently lowered his head and tugged at the corner of his clothes, trying to cover his injured leg that was exposed outside. His leg already felt a little cold.
Fang Tianzhuo glanced at his small movements.
That leg was slender and white as jade, but deliberately covering it made it even more seductive.
Fang Tianzhuo stood up.
As soon as he moved, He Zheng shivered like a frightened bird, and looked at him vigilantly.
The large and heavy dragon robe was thrown against his head, and He Zheng was stunned and pulled it off. He silently stretched out his sleeves and put it on his body.
The dragon robe was large, and the embroidery above it turned out to be three-dimensional and very thick. He struggled to expose his fingers from the inside, wrapped himself tightly, and looked up at Fang Tianzhuo, who had already walked away.
He Zheng looked up at the sun which was about to set completely. His heart throbbed, and he hurriedly stood up and followed him. Fang Tianzhuo was taller than him, his shoulders were wider than him, and the dragon robe made him slower.
He Zheng hadn’t forgotten to hold his crown, when the crown collided with his clothes it made a sound, Fang Tianzhuo turned to look at him, and He Zheng stopped immediately.
As soon as he turned around, He Zheng stumbled to keep up, following every step of the way, for fear that he would be lost.
Although his reason told him that Fang Tianzhuo still expects him to have children and he is moody, who knows if he will change his mind and let the beast eat him? He Zheng felt that he had to be responsible for his own life.
Fang Tianzhuo walked fast, He Zheng injured his leg, and it was very difficult to keep up with him, probably because he was annoying, Fang Tianzhuo stopped in front and frowned, “You wait here.”
He Zheng looked at the dark sky, his heart beating like a drum, and whispered, “But I’m afraid.”
Fang Tianzhuo’s eyelids twitched, He Zheng dragged another leg that was getting heavier and heavier towards him, and said earnestly, “Don’t worry, Your Majesty, I can keep up, I will go wherever you go, and I will watch from a distance. With you, I feel safe in my heart.”
Fang Tianzhuo looked at him with a gloomy face for a moment, stretched out his arms to hug him, and strode forward, He Zheng let out a sigh of relief, put one arm around his crown, and hooked his neck with the other, when he heard a rumbling sound coming from above his head.
The bottom of the cliff was already cold enough, and another mountain rain made him suspect that he had caught a cold again.
But he finally understood that Fang Tianzhuo was in such a hurry to leave not because he wanted to leave him, but because he wanted to find a cave. After all, if there was no shelter from the rain at night like this, his weak body might not be able to hold up.
Fang Tianzhuo finally found a cave sheltering from the rain. He Zheng was put on the ground and he found that Fang Tianzhuo turned around and went out again, and he hurriedly followed.
Fang Tianzhuo frowned and looked at the guy who suddenly became extraordinarily clingy, “I’ll find some dry wood nearby.”
He Zheng wrapped his dragon robe weakly and said softly, “Then I will watch you at the entrance of the cave, I’ll just watch.”
Fang Tianzhuo ignored him.
He Zheng walked to the entrance of the cave, his eyes following his figure, until Fang Tianzhuo came back. He raised his hand and threw the dry wood on the ground, and he gave He Zheng a gloomy look again, due to his conditioned reflex he wanted to do something, he stretched out his hand and pulled the hay to level it, and timidly spread his hands in a gesture of invitation.
The sky was completely dark, the thunder was roaring, and the torrential rain was pouring down. He Zheng was sniffing at the cold wind blowing in from the hole, and he stretched out his hand beside the fire. Because he was sitting opposite Fang Tianzhuo, he didn’t dare to stretch his hand too long. After all, Fang Tianzhuo raised the fire, and his expression was so ugly at the moment, he was afraid that the other party would chop him off.
A gust of cold wind blew, and He Zheng shivered again.
Fang Tianzhuo especially chose the leeward place when he lit the fire, but He Zheng gave him the position in the hay, so now he was facing the wind, and he was dizzy.
Fang Tianzhuo frowned: “Come here.”
He Zheng hesitantly rubbed over, and was pulled into his arms and He Zheng’s hand was grabbed by him and raised towards the fire.
He Zheng thought that he was going to burn him, and struggled to shrink back in a conditioned reflex, his expression panicked.
Fang Tianzhuo’s face was ashen.
