Zhou Ying carried the two newly bought water tubs into her interspace and used an electric drill to drill a few holes under each of the water tubs.
After she was done, she took out two pounds of soybeans and green beans and soaked them in the water. She then covered them with a double layer of wet cloth. Once that was done, she moved it out of her space and placed it beside the stove.
Finally, she wanted to start a fire on the stove. She carried a basket and a sickle, thinking of cutting some withered grass at the foot of the mountain and using them as a firestarter.
Unexpectedly, when she reached the foot of the mountain, she faintly heard a familiar sound of suppressed crying. Zhou Ying was stunned for a moment and looked for the source of the sound. Then, she saw Gu Chengxi sitting behind a stone, holding his head and crying pitifully.
Zhou Ying hesitated for a moment, but she still walked over and patted him on the shoulder. “Chengxi, what’s wrong? Why are you crying?”
Gu Chengxi stiffened for a moment and turned his head with a smile. “Third sister-in-law, it’s you.”
“Have you been bullied at home?”
“No, no, I just…” Gu Chengxi stammered.
Zhou Ying didn’t ask any more questions, but looking at his obviously thinned face, she still reminded him, “A crying child will get his milk, but you have to find the right person to cry to so that that person knows you’ve been wronged.”
Gu Chengxi looked at her in shock.
Zhou Ying knocked his head and said, “Isn’t that right? Who would know if you were crying here? You might as well chop some wood to vent the anger inside you.”
After saying that, she turned around and walked toward the withered grass.
Gu Chengxi raised his head and looked at her back thoughtfully. However, as children of a concubine, they were born half servants.
Weren’t they the same in the past? So what if it was tough and tiring? No one would feel bad for them.
No, he still had his mother. But he quickly shook his head; his mother’s life was even more difficult than his.
What about his father and matriarch? It appears he needed to find someone to complain to and think of a way. Otherwise, with his small body, he would collapse from exhaustion sooner or later.
Zhou Ying didn’t know what he was thinking, but she started cutting the grass seriously. However, she found a nest with more than ten wild eggs before she could harvest enough.
She thought of Gu Chengxi’s small and thin face. She turned around and waved at him. “Chengxi, come here.”
Gu Chengxi was startled when he heard her calling him, but he still ran over and asked, “Third sister-in-law, what’s wrong?”
Zhou Ying pointed to the nest of wild eggs and said, “Since we’re both here, we’ll split these in half. Each person gets five.”
“You’re really giving it to me?” Gu Chengxi’s eyes lit up.
Although he could eat his fill under the protection of his mother, he was really short on protein. There was no share for him of the eggs at home, so he was starving.
Moreover, there was still his mother, who was eating worse than him, so he needed these eggs.
“Of course, why else would I call you over? But whether you can eat it or not depends on your ability.” After Zhou Ying finished speaking, she picked out five big ones for him.
Gu Chengxi calmed down after he took it from her. He was afraid that if he brought it to those people back home, he and his mother would not have a share.
“Third sister-in-law, can I cook it in your house before bringing it back?” she asked Zhou Ying.
“Sure, come back to get it when you go back tonight.
“However, if you want to eat by yourselves for the long run, you have to think of a way, such as roasting whatever you get. “After Zhou Ying finished speaking, she asked him to put the wild eggs in the basket.
Gu Chengxi’s eyes brightened even more after hearing this. He nodded excitedly and said, “I understand.”
“Okay, but be careful. Also, you have to clean up your trail.” After Zhou Ying finished speaking, she continued to cut the withered grass while Gu Chengxi turned around and happily went to gather firewood.
