Huaihe is not the same as Nancheng Capital, It is a remote town near the lake.
Most people don't have air conditioning or natural gas in their homes. Cooking is all firewood.
Tangli came here to see Qi Ye, but it's not good to be lazy all the time and not work.
She is not good at cleaning, does not know how to do laundry and cook, so she will take care of the work of chopping wood.
In the beginning, the old man disagreed, It can be seen that the girl picked up the axe very easily, It is good to have the right head, suddenly Can split firewood in half.
This is more efficient than him and Qin Wan and the others, In addition, Tangli has been pestering him, and in the end he has no choice but to hand over the task of chopping wood to her.
"You don't need to chop too much, rest when you are tired, This is almost enough for these two days. There are many rainy and snowy days here, It is easy to get wet if it accumulates too much.”
"Hmmmm I know grandpa, You don't need to worry about me, you can go to the fire and rest, I will do this."
Tangli rolled up her sleeves as she spoke, with an axe, she cut the firewood in half.
When the axe fell, it was neat and tidy. She didn't see any stubbornness on her face.
The old man was a little surprised when he saw the other party imitating his own demonstration.
"We Qi Ye are quite good at finding someone, strong and not squeamish. At first, I thought he was not in good health, and if he found a girlfriend, he would not know who would take care of him. Now It seems that this girl and Qi Ye complement each other perfectly."
"What do you say, old man, What does it have to do with finding a partner and complementing each other, as long as our good grandson likes it. Qi Ye likes it, even if she is also a charming little girl. No problem, but our grandson is lucky and found a treasure."
Sun Xuefen said that the other party's idea was wrong, but in the end, she was very glad that Tangli complemented him.
Unlike Qi Ming, their family was not so tight after Qi Ming was born.
The debt that should be paid is almost done.
Qi Ye had a hard time growing up, and in their opinion, it would be better to have someone who could be in pain.
The little boy seemed to understand what they were saying. He was holding a whip and tossing the top that the old man made for him a few days ago.
The top turned very fast, from here to there, and finally reached Tangli's feet.
Tangli heard the sound of the whip "slap" a long time ago, and glanced at the corner of the eye, and saw that the top was spinning beside him and was about to stop.
Because she was by her side, Qi Ming didn't dare to swing the whip indiscriminately, for fear of accidentally hurting her.
Tangli put the axe on the stake beside him, lowered his head and picked up the top to have a look.
She also played this game when she was a child, and at first glance she missed it.
Qi Ming still didn't realize how a good brother suddenly turned into a sister. He saw her holding her top and looked at it for a while, and finally blushed embarrassedly and said.
"Do you want to play top too?"
"My grandfather gave me two whips. I asked my brother to play with me before, but he didn't agree. If you want to play, we can play together."
Tangli didn't really want to play, but he said so, and those eyes looked at him expectantly.
The meaning could not be more obvious.
She paused and glanced at the hills of dry wood at her hand.
It seems that he has hacked enough, and playing with him for a while should not delay anything.
"That's it, go and get that whip back, let's play together."
"Yeah! Sister Tangli is the best!"
Qi Ming is the youngest in the family, but it is because he is young that no one plays with him.
The little boy jumped into the room excitedly with his short legs, and as soon as he pushed the door in, he collided with Qi Ye who had just packed up the tableware and prepared to come out.
When he saw the person who came, he hurriedly stretched out his hand to support him. After seeing Qi Ming standing firm, he frowned and looked over.
"Why do you always walk so recklessly and don't know how to see the way? If I hadn't stepped over you like this just now, it would have been difficult not to fall and bleed."
"Hey hey, I'm happy! Sister Tangli said she wanted to play top with me, I'm coming back to get a whip."
Qi Ming released the boy's hand and ran into his house, and came out with a whip after a while.
The young man looked at the figure of the other party happily walking towards Tangli, pursed his thin lips, but said nothing.
He originally thought that he would come out to find Tangli after he was busy with the task at hand, and he did not want to be taken first by Qi Ming.
The girl didn't notice that Qi Ye was coming too, and when she saw the little boy rushing towards him, she didn't think much about bending over and reaching out to hug him directly.
"Okay, boy, I've eaten well in the past few days during the Chinese New Year.
Tangli patted him on the back teasingly, Qi Ming is also thin-skinned, when he heard the other party said he was fat, he blushed and hugged her neck to hide his face so that she would not let her Look.
"No, I just ate and didn't exercise. I'm not fat."
"Well well, you're not fat."
She curved the corners of her lips, pinched his cheeks and gently put him down.
"There's only one top, right? Let's play with it, I'll give you a flick of the whip, and you won't let it stop."
"There's a lot of stuff here. Let's go outside the fence. It's spacious."
Tang Li took the boy's hand and went out while talking, never looking at Qi Ye from beginning to end.
In fact, it's not her fault, she was standing in a blind spot where she couldn't see Qi Ye at all. But the young man stood there for a while, and after watching the figures of one big and one small gradually disappear, he still felt a little down because he was left out.
Sun Xuefen and Qin Wan, who were on the side, looked at each other subconsciously after noticing the boy's emotions. Qin Wan just wanted to say something.
Sun Xuefen shook her head to stop it.
"Don't worry about him, he has to stay here foolishly if he wants to go. He is so inactive, and I don't know how he caught up with the girl."
She was holding the soles of her shoes on the fire, and after seeing Qi Ye standing like this for a while and then going straight back, she even muttered a few words with hatred.
"I told you long ago that his temperament needs to be changed. If he doesn't say anything, he will always hold back. When he should take the initiative, he will think about things, that is, the girl Tangli has nothing to do with rough nerves. Going around, being someone else, no matter how good-looking his face is, he won't be able to catch up with them."
"But isn't this catching up? The children and grandchildren have their own blessings, so don't worry about these things. In fact, he has changed a lot. We couldn't tell whether he was in a good mood or not."
Unlike Sun Xuefen, Qin Wan didn't care much about these.
In her opinion, this is not Qi Ye holding back and not worrying too much, but just a change.
He is very possessive, because he likes Tangli, so many times it is not that he does not take the initiative but that he wants to give the other party some space.
He didn't want to take care of her too much and make her breathless.
Because Tangli helped chop the firewood and everything, the old man planned to go to the field tomorrow to weed.
Seeing that I have nothing to do, I took a **** and went out after resting for a while.
However, the weather was fine when I went out, and it began to snow in the evening.
Seeing that the old man hadn't come back, and seeing the snow getting heavier and heavier, Qin Wan couldn't help feeling anxious.
"Mom, I went to the field to have a look. Dad's eyes are not good. It's snowing so late. I'm afraid he will accidentally fall when he comes back."
"No need, Qi Ye's child just went out through the side door. It was going in the direction of the ground, let's cook first, it's almost time to eat when the two of them come back. "
Sun Xuefen put the good insole on the chair beside, got up and patted the dust on her body.
As soon as I stood up, I saw the young boy who was playing with the top outside the fence also entered the room at this time.
Tangli was not seen behind him.
"Xiao Ming, what about your sister Tangli, why didn't she come in with you?"
Qi Ming held the top and blinked after hearing the woman's words.
"Sister Tangli saw my brother go out and asked me to come back first. She followed him to the field."
Sun Xuefen was a little surprised.
"What's there to follow, it's just a few steps away."
Before Qin Wan could answer, the young man's clear voice answered the old man first.
"Because it's getting dark."
——Qi Ye is afraid of the dark.
The two fell silent after hearing this, and no one spoke for a while.
It's not that they don't know about it, but they just didn't think about it for a while.
Even if they knew it, they would sometimes subconsciously ignore it because of the youthful appearance.
But Tangli didn't have it. She thought of this question almost as soon as she saw Qi Ye go out.
After a while, the wrinkles at the corners of Sun Xuefen's eyes wrinkled, she smiled.
"You are right, children and grandchildren have their own blessings. Our Qi Ye's blessing has just begun."
In the past, they liked Tangli simply because Qi Ye liked it, but at this time, Sun Xuefen and the others really recognized the girl.
Tangli didn't know this, she saw Qi Ye go over to the ridge and hurriedly followed.
Qi Ye walked in front and didn't notice the people behind him. Hearing the movement, his heart moved, and when he looked back, he met the girl's brown eyes.
“How did you…”
"I should ask you this, why did you go out without saying a word, and didn't say a word to me?"
Before Qi Ye finished speaking, Tang Li walked over in three or two steps, she wrapped the scarf around his neck, and stretched out her hand to hold his hand in her pocket very naturally .
"Where are you going so late?"
Wrapped by the girl's warmth, Qi Ye's eyelashes trembled, and the white mist between his lips and teeth covered his eyebrows.
"I went to see my grandfather in the field and told him to come back for dinner."
"Can't you just ask me to go to this kind of thing? I'm just outside the fence, just say it and I'll pass. It's getting dark, what are you doing out there?"
The boy knew that Tang Li was worried about himself, the corners of his lips twitched and his expression was gentle.
"It's okay, just a few steps away. I don't want to disturb you when I see you and Qi Ming having a good time."
She swallowed and looked up at the boy beside her.
“…are you angry?”
Tangli couldn't tell whether the other party was really angry or just suspicious, she pursed her lips and moved her hand in her pocket.
"Are you angry because I ignored you while playing with Qi Ming?"
He was dumbfounded.
"Do I look so stingy? He's my brother, and no one else, so I even eat his vinegar?"
"But to be honest... I do feel a little lost."
Tangli choked and glanced at him sadly.
"I'm not angry or jealous."
"No, I didn't mean that."
He said here, he squeezed Tangli's fingertips lightly, and the fine snow on his eyelashes complemented his beautiful and pure eyes.
"When you're with me, it's not much fun. It's good that you can have such a good time with Qi Ming. But more or less still a little sad, I think I'm quite boring of."
He felt that he was not interesting enough, and he couldn't let it go when he was playing, for fear of being here and there. I can't have a good time with her.
But when others play with her, he is inevitably a little lost.
Qi Ming also knows that his idea is very contradictory.
After saying this, his Adam's apple rolled, and he buried his face in the scarf and stopped talking.
Waihe River often snows in winter, but the snow is not big, and the fine snow drifts gently to his hair and his shoulders.
His skin was originally fair, and at this time, under the dim light, his eyebrows and eyes were soft. His face became paler and less bloody.
Qi Ye looks like a beautiful work of art carefully crafted by the creator.
Beautiful things are fragile, if you don't take care of them carefully, it seems that they will shatter into powder in the next second.
Tangli didn't speak anymore, either because she didn't want to say it or she didn't know what to say.
She knew that Qi Ye had this temperament , she used to get annoyed when she heard too much. But now every time I hear him say that, I feel more distressed.
She wants him to be at ease, more at ease.
It's not like now, I dare not even say a word too completely, for fear that she will be bored.
After picking up the old man to go home, the snow outside not only did not decrease, but it was getting heavier.
Tangli went back to her room after dinner. She was upset and wanted to play two games to relax, but it was in the mountains and the internet was not very good.
She had no choice but to hold the quilt and force herself to sleep.
But as soon as she closed her eyes, she thought of Qi Ye's drooping eyebrows and red eyes.
He didn't cry, he was frozen red.
However, the picture was merged with the snow in the sky into her mind, and the more she thought about it, the more she felt bored.
Tangli looked at her phone, it was eleven o'clock.
She was in the room next to Qi Ye, and when she looked out the window, she could see that the light in his room was still on.
He hasn't slept yet.
This is very unreasonable, usually he goes to bed at nine o'clock and turns off the lights.
Tangli inevitably wondered if he was thinking nonsense again because he didn't speak when he came back at night.
Or was it left out during the day?
While Tangli was tossing and turning on the bed, the lights in the next room went out.
At the same time, something slammed to the ground.
She heard a carp hurriedly sat up straight, and she couldn't see clearly in the dark.
Tangli reached out to turn on the light, but found that there was a power outage.
It seems that the reason why the light went out just now was not because Qi Ye was going to rest, but because of a power outage.
He should be scared when it gets dark so suddenly.
As soon as this thought came to her mind, Tang Li opened the door and walked straight past without thinking.
She stood outside the door and knocked lightly, but she didn't hear the slightest movement inside.
She was stunned for a moment, then panicked even more, and hurriedly pushed the door and went in directly.
Tangli squinted and looked around, there was no one, only a small hill bulging out of the bed.
She breathed a sigh of relief, walked over and sat beside the bed.
"Qi Ye, did you fall somewhere?"
As she spoke, she stretched out her hand and gently hugged him through the thick quilt, resting her head on it, her voice soft and soft.
"Be good, don't be bored in the quilt, there's nothing to be afraid of when I'm here."
The people inside moved after hearing this, but they didn't plan to leave the quilt.
Tangli was afraid that he would be deprived of oxygen for a long time, and reached out to lift his quilt a little.
But she just stretched out her hand, and he held her tightly so that she wouldn't move.
"Really, there is nothing outside, don't be afraid. Even if there are any monsters, I will punch you to death."
She spoke softly and softly for a long time, but the people inside showed no signs of loosening.
Tangli frowned, and then she couldn't bear it anymore, and planned to forcibly fish him out of the quilt.
She was afraid that she would pull him down to the ground with too much force, so she went to bed and pressed him to prevent him from moving.
In the end, before I could do it, a touch of orange light at the door illuminated the dark room.
The boy held an oil lamp in his hand and looked at Tangli on the bed with a stunned expression.
Similarly, Tang Li also noticed something, and turned to look at the door.
The two looked at each other, she was in a trance for a moment, and then looked down at the small hill under her body.
Frightened, she jumped off the bed.
"Two, two Qi Ye?!"
Qi Ye was stunned for a moment. After hearing this, he realized something, and couldn't help but let out a low laugh.
He walked over and put the oil lamp beside the bed, then bent down and reached out to pat the person under the quilt.
"Okay, one hundred is here, you can come out."
The little boy who was still in the quilt just now didn't dare to let out the air heard this, he quickly stuck his head out from the inside and gasped with a blushing face.
"He was in my room just now and I was telling him a bedtime story, but the power went out. He just heard a ghost story yesterday and was so frightened that he hid under the quilt and didn't dare. Come out. So I told him that ghosts are afraid of light, I went to get a lamp, and after counting to one hundred, the ghosts left."
Seeing that Tangli hadn't recovered, Qi Ye explained to her with such a smile.
The little boy got out of the quilt, hugging Qi Ye and not letting go.
He looked at Tangli for a long time After confirming that it was a real person, he breathed a sigh of relief and said embarrassedly.
"I'm sorry Sister Tangli, I didn't mean it just now. I, I thought you were a ghost to coax me out, I didn't dare to come out and didn't dare to make a sound, I was afraid it would give me to me ate."
Tangli's expression was subtle, she didn't know what to say for a while.
The boy curled his lips and gently wiped the sweat from his forehead before letting him go back to the room.
Qi Ming blinked, but instead of leaving immediately, he pulled the corner of Qi Ye's clothes to signal him to bow his head.
Qi Ye didn't think much about it. After looking at his mysterious appearance, he lowered his head curiously and listened to the little boy whispering to himself.
"Brother, sister Tangli kissed me just now, and kissed me a lot through the quilt, and called me baby."
"She seems to recognize me as you."
After Qi Ming finished speaking, he saw that the boy's face suddenly turned red, then he covered his mouth and ran out with a smile.
When he ran to the door, he glanced at the door, until Tang Li looked at him inexplicably, and then he ran away.
“What did he tell you? How did he run so fast?”
Qi Ye raised his hand and put the back of his hand to his face to cool down, his eyes were softly and shyly reflected by the light.
"You haven't said it yet, what are you doing here at night?"
"Well, I think there is a power outage. I just heard that something fell to the ground here. I was afraid that you would be scared and come here."
When Tang Li came over, she saw that it was a story book that fell to the ground. It is estimated that it was accidentally dropped on the ground when Qi Ming was hiding under the quilt.
"Anyway, you'll be fine, then you go to bed early and I'll go back."
She was about to leave when the teenager behind her stepped forward and took her hand.
"My story isn't over yet, do you want to stay and listen to a bedtime story?"
Tangli looked over in a daze, but didn't understand what it meant, but when she saw the young man's crimson ears, he knew in a trance that this was his retention.
The light is dim.
Looking at the beauty under the lamp, she wanted to refuse and welcome, which made her feel itchy.
Tangli didn't know how she agreed, until she lay down on his bed obediently.
Only then did she realize what she had done.
Qi Ye was beside her, he picked up the storybook and flipped a few pages at will.
The sound of the pages rustled, and his fingers were so good-looking that even their fingertips were a touch of pink.
"What story do you want to hear?"
What's good about this, it's not that I haven't heard it.
If you have time to listen to this thing, it is better to hug and get closer.
Tangli only said a few words in her heart, but she didn't show it on her face.
"Just listen to the one you didn't finish just now."
"Okay, let's talk about Hai's daughter."
"Once upon a time, under the deep sea lived a beautiful mermaid princess..."
The voice of the boy and the sea under the night are quiet and soft, and the wind blows into fine ripples.
Tangli was not sleepy at first, but after listening to her eyelids began to fight.
"The little mermaid fell in love with the prince, and also fell in love with the human being. She ran to the witch under the sea and exchanged her beautiful voice for the poison to turn into legs."
The story is still the familiar story of Tangli, and she echoes a sentence or two from time to time.
"...and she didn't get the prince's sincerity, and she didn't choose to stab him in the heart with a dagger and turn back into a mermaid."
"Jumped into the bone-piercing water after the first rays of sunlight in the morning and turned into foam on the sea surface."
While Tangli was sleepy, Qi Ye lightly touched her cheek.
"A Tang, what would you do if you were a little mermaid?"
"I don't know. But I would never die for someone who doesn't like me."
"How about you?"
Qi Ye's eyes flashed, and his fingertips rubbed her soft lips.
"His life was originally saved by me, and I will pull him to death."
The girl's eyelashes twitched, and she looked over in amazement.
"Do you think I'm cold-blooded?"
Tangli looked at the dark mood in the boy's eyes, he never showed her his dark side.
He was afraid to scare her, so this was the first time he didn't shy away.
"...I'm not frightened, but I think it's not worth it for someone who doesn't like you."
"If you choose to drag him to death, then you might as well just kill him and live your life. As long as you are still alive, you will always have a chance to meet someone better. "
Qi Ye didn't expect her to answer like this, he bent the corners of his lips, bowed his head and kissed her forehead.
He put the storybook in his hand on the bedside table, and took out a necklace from under the pillow.
In sterling silver, with a small jasmine flower.
"This is a New Year's gift. I bought it with the bonus. I thought I'd have to wait until the start of school to give it to you."
Before Tang Li could ask, Qi Ye explained softly.
He lowered his head and put the necklace around her neck.
The white and slender neck has a light floral fragrance. It looks like real jasmine, sweet and sweet.
Qi Ye put his hands on both sides of her head, and looked down at her.
The two were very close, and the breath was hot, spraying all over her cheeks.
"A Tang, do you know that we have a cp name in the school forum?"
Tangli was dazed by the beauty in front of her and didn't react. She swallowed and shook her head subconsciously.
Then I remembered the words that I inadvertently heard on Chen Tiantian's mouth.
“…is it called bizarre cp?”
The boy gently pressed against her forehead, his thin lips slightly parted.
"Well, but I don't like to call it that. It sounds like how weird and weird we can be together, and we're a perfect match."
She was amused by this sentence.
"Are we still a good match? One school bully and one learner bully. In their opinion, we two can't fight together. Don't they think it's normal?"
"I don't like you saying that either."
Qi Ye raised his brows and bit her nose in a punitive manner, then muttered.
"Don't belittle yourself, you're fine."
The boy buried his head in her neck and took a deep breath.
He stretched out his hand and hugged her tightly, with great strength, as if to rub her into the blood.
"You're nice, really nice. So I don't like bizarre, I don't like…"
Qi Ye's body was shaking, Tang Li could clearly feel his unease.
She moved her eyes and hugged him tightly.
"Okay, then it's not bizarre."
"We will never leave."
His heart skipped a beat, and he didn't wait for the girl to react.
Qi Ye slammed his lips to her two soft lips and tossed.
"Tangli, I love you..."
The little mermaid did not wait for her prince, so she finally turned into a foam in the sun.
But he waited for his princess.
His princess loves him and he loves her too.
Never give up.
