Ch. 44 Apple
When Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian fell, they both subconsciously stretched out their hands to protect the other’s head. Although the two of them got wounded by sharp stones and branches scattered on the ground, fortunately they did not hurt their heads.
Jiang Juan got up from Xie Jingxian, and after the dizziness subsided, he lowered his eyes and asked, “How are you? Is there anything wrong?”
Jiang Juan asked this question, but he knew in his heart that Xie Jingxian was fine.
He could feel the pain on Xie Jingxian’s body, the two rolled down together, and they didn’t forget to protect each other, so the pain was not so unbearable.
Xie Jingxian laid as human flesh cushion for Jiang Juan. At this moment, he was lying in the middle of dead leaves and gravel. The hand protecting Jiang Juan’s head moved away as he got up, but the other hand that was wrapped around Jiang Juan’s waist still hadn’t let go.
Xie Jingxian carefully looked at Jiang Juan’s face, and after making sure that there was no trace of pain on his face, he shook his head gently, “I’m fine.”
Jiang Juan breathed a sigh of relief, pulled Xie Jingxian up, and then looked to the side. Not far from them, Han Xingye was frowning, as he got up from the ground with a gloomy face.
Han Xingye was caught off guard by Jiang Juan, and no one was under him to cushion his fall. His image at the moment was very miserable. The expensive clothes that he was wearing had several holes scratched by the branches and the gravels, and his head and the corners of the mouth were also scratched. He looked very embarrassing .
When Jiang Juan thought of Han Xingye’s murderous eyes on them and the fruit knife in his hand, his anger could not be restrained.
In the novel, Han Xingye took some unprofessional means in order to deal with Xie Jingxian, and finally got the heroine Xia Qing hurt.
After he transmigrated here, although Xia Qing didn’t come for some unknown reason, he also expected that Han Xingye would not let them go, but he did not expect that Han Xingye’s methods could be so despicable.
Jiang Juan felt that his fist was very itchy and wanted to punch someone, but before he could act, Xie Jingxian quickly walked past him and came to Han Xingye.
Jiang Juan was taken aback, and before he could react, Xie Jingxian had already grabbed Han Xingye’s collar and punched his face.
Han Xingye was stunned by the beating, and after reacting, he glared at Xie Jingxian, “You dare to hit me!”
Xie Jingxian looked at Han Xingye coldly, without saying a word, he punched him again, and blood immediately flowed from the corner of his mouth.
Xie Jingxian directly looked into Han Xingye’s eyes, his voice was filled with a chilling coldness, “You have nothing to do with what Qin Ying did to me, but you shouldn’t have involved him!”
Qin Ying is the name of Han Xingye’s mother.
A look of astonishment flashed in Han Xingye’s eyes, but before he could understand what Xie Jingxian meant, he was knocked to the ground by Xie Jingxian.
Han Xingye was not Xie Jingxian’s opponent in fighting, so he could only curl up and lie there, trying his best to protect himself.
Jiang Juan saw that Xie Jingxian was really angry, so he hurriedly stepped forward to stop him. Xie Jingxian raised his arms, and after seeing Jiang Juan approaching, he paused slightly, and said in a low voice, “Get out of the way.”
Jiang Juan shook his head, raised his hand and pressed Xie Jingxian’s arm, and patted it twice to comfort him, then turned his head to Han Xingye on the ground and said, “You are no longer a child. What you did today was too much. When we get out of here, we’ll settle the account with you.”
Han Xingye didn’t know if he was stunned by the beating or by what was going on. He laid motionless on the ground and didn’t respond.
Jiang Juan ignored him, and looked up at the top, the hill was long and steep, and they didn’t know how long it took for them to roll down. It would be very difficult to go back through the same path.
Jiang Juan took out his mobile phone and was about to contact the teacher and ask someone to pick them up. But then he realized that there was no signal on the mobile phone. After Jiang Juan tried several times, he had to give up.
It was still early, and the teacher would only count the people at night, so no one would find them missing now. As for Han Xingye’s two friends, Jiang Juan thought of the novel and gave up on having any hope.
It was very cold at night in the mountains, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian didn’t plan to stay where they were, they were going to look elsewhere and find a way out.
Han Xingye was just beaten, so of course he wouldn’t ho with them. Han Xingye walked in the opposite direction of Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian.
Jiang Juan was too lazy to care about him, and walked with Xie Jingxian all the way, not forgetting to leave a mark along the way.
Don’t know how long it took, the sky gradually darkened, and was shrouded with dark clouds, soon the cold wind started blowing. When the snow fell, Jiang Juan and Xie Jingxian were both stunned.
Jiang Juan raised his head and looked at the snowflakes falling from the sky, as a look of surprise flashed in his eyes, “It’s snowing so early?” He took out his mobile phone and found that it was actually December 24th.
Jiang Juan said in surprise, “Today is Christmas Eve.”
Although it was not a local festival, there was no way for young people not to like the excitement of this day. It is a pity that they were trapped in the mountains at this time. They were lucky enough to find a cave where they could stay before the sky completely darkened.
There were dead branches and leaves everywhere on the ground, but neither of them smoked, so they had no lighters on their bodies and couldn’t make a fire to keep themselves warm.
Jiang Juan sat cross-legged on a pile of dead leaves, relying on the flashlight that came with his mobile phone to illuminate the surrounding area. He glanced at Xie Jingxian, who was sitting quietly beside him, bumped him with his shoulder, and said with a smile, “Handsome guy, today is Christmas Eve, I’m sorry that you have to spend the holiday with me.”
Xie Jingxian was not amused by Jiang Juan’s words, on the contrary, his looked very serious, he was silent for a while, and then said to Jiang Juan, “I’m sorry.”
Jiang Juan exclaimed, “Don’t worry, when we go up, we’ll settle the account with that surnamed Han.”
After he finished speaking, he glanced at Xie Jingxian again. In order not to arouse suspicion, he still asked, “You and Han Xingye knew each other before? Have a personal grudge?”
Jiang Juan knew the grievances between Xie Jingxian and the Han family, and he also knew that this matter was the deepest secret in Xie Jingxian’s heart that he would not tell others easily.
He just asked casually, but he didn’t expect Xie Jingxian to be silent for a moment, but then start to reveal his life experience.
This was something Jiang Juan didn’t expect. In the novel, in the accident on Xiaohuashan mountain, although the heroine Xia Qing and Xie Jingxian warmed up their relationship, Xie Jingxian did not reveal his life experience. But now, why did Xie Jingxian tell him this?
Xie Jingxian did not miss the surprise and astonishment in Jiang Juan eyes. It was the first time in years that he had trusted someone so wholeheartedly.
Xie Jingxian’s hand on his knee clenched into a fist, as he stared deeply into Jiang Juan’s eyes, thinking, I hope you won’t let me down.
Jiang Juan couldn’t distinguish the meaning in Xie Jingxian’s eyes for a while, but he could clearly feel that his whole body was about to drown in Xie Jingxian’s eyes.
088 also seemed to have a malfunction at this time, as it’s voice sounded over and over again, “Add 5 to the favorability and 5 to the trust.”
“Add 5 to favorability and 5 to trust.”
In a short period of time, both the favorability and trust levels soared to 80.
Out of 100, if 60 is considered a pass, then 80 is considered excellent.
088 has been very calm after following Jiang Juan, but at this moment he still couldn’t help shouting excitedly, “Brother Juan!”
If this happened in the past, Jiang Juan would have definitely not been able to hold back his tears, but now that he looked at Xie Jingxian in front of him, a feeling of distress suddenly surged in his heart. At this moment, he suddenly understood Xie Jingxian’s eyes.
He was trying to trust him, and he hoped that he wouldn’t let him down.
Jiang Juan really wanted to hold Xie Jingxian’s hand and tell him not to worry, not to be afraid, he would be his forever friend, but he held back.
Jiang Juan moved, suddenly thought of something, and then took out an apple from his pocket. This was the after-dinner “dessert” distributed by the group members yesterday, and he had forgotten to eat it.
Jiang Juan wiped the surface of the apple with his sleeve, and said, “It’s not very clean, but you won’t get sick if you eat it, please don’t dislike it.”
He divided the apple in two and handed half of it to Xie Jingxian, “Come on, classmate Xie, let’s have a celebration too, after eating this apple, everything will be safe and smooth, and all the monsters and ghosts will take a detour after seeing you. “
After thinking about it, he added another sentence, “I would also like to thank my classmate for taking care of me.”
After listening to Xie Jingxian’s life experience, Jiang Juan’s eyes showed no pity, no contempt, and no excessive anger, but they were as gentle as flowing water. He was expressing his words with his actions, that it doesn’t matter, I will always be your friend, those sufferings will one day pass, and I will accompany you.
A faint smile appeared in Xie Jingxian’s eyes, and he suddenly felt that the secret in his heart was not so heavy, and the affairs of the Han family were not so worthy of his mind and let him hate them for it.
Xie Jingxian took a bite of the apple, which was crunchy and sweet, and the sweet taste spread to the bottom of his heart. He really wanted to believe Jiang Juan’s words.
The rest of his life will be smooth and worry-free.
And he will be by his side.
Xie Jingxian curled his lips and said softly, “Okay, classmate Jiang.”
