Chapter 21: It Feels So Good to Sleep Under a Blanket~
Shen Yao pursed his lips tightly. In the end, he did not go out to chase after Ji Zhao.
Zhao Lanhua stomped her feet anxiously. She puffed up her cheeks and said angrily, “Ah Tao’s head injury hasn’t healed yet! And she hasn’t eaten yet!”
On the other side.
Ji Zhao returned to the Earth Temple with heavy steps.
She leaned against the reed mat in the corner with difficulty and hugged her knees. Her eyes were filled with grievance and sadness.
The moment she was bitten by the poisonous snake, she thought that she could return to her original world.
In the end, it turned out that it was all wishful thinking.
Ji Zhao, who had been letting her imagination run wild for a while, was finally pulled back from her thoughts by hunger.
There was also a small bowl of cherries on the shrine to the Earth God.
She knelt in front of the statue of the Earth God piously and said guiltily, “Please forgive me, Earth God. I was bitten by a snake today and really don’t have the strength to go out and search for food. I’ll go out to find food tomorrow morning!”
Just as Ji Zhao was about to take the cherries, she heard heavy footsteps.
Shen Yao, who was carrying a wicker basket, bent over and walked into the Earth Temple.
“Why are you here?” Ji Zhao frowned in confusion.
Shen Yao did not answer her. Instead, he put down the basket on his back and took out a thin blanket. He placed it on the reed mat in the corner and added another layer of bedsheets.
After doing this, he untied the water bag tied to his waist and took out an oil paper bag.
“My mother made sesame pastries tonight.” Shen Yao sat cross-legged on an edge of the reed mat. He looked up at Ji Zhao and said calmly and gently, “If you hadn’t saved my mother today, I’m afraid the consequences would have been unimaginable. Logically speaking, I should thank you.”
“Mother treated me very well. She even ignored the past and brought me to the county city to treat my illness. It’s only right that I treat her well,” Ji Zhao said sincerely.
“Mm,” Shen Yao replied.
The two of them sat opposite each other in silence.
Ji Zhao felt that the atmosphere was a little awkward until her stomach growled again.
“You have to eat the sesame pastry while it’s hot. It won’t taste good when it’s cold,” Shen Yao suddenly reminded.
Ji Zhao subconsciously nodded in response. She opened the oil paper bag and gently took a bite of the sesame pastry that was still warm.
It was salty, crispy, and delicious.
Shen Yao thought for a moment and said again, “We’ve already divorced. If we live together again, it will affect your future greatly.”
“You...” Shen Yao looked away awkwardly. “You’re still a virgin. When you repay the Shen family’s money in the future, you can marry another good man. If you and I live together, it will definitely affect your reputation. That’s why I don’t want you to return to the Shen family.”
Ji Zhao was very surprised.
She did not expect Shen Yao to be so considerate for her.
“Oh,” Ji Zhao replied silently and lowered her head to continue eating the pastry.
Shen Yao touched his nose uncomfortably. “It’s getting late. You should rest early too.”
However, he seemed to have forgotten how short the Earth Temple was, so the moment he suddenly stood up, his head inevitably hit the eaves.
“Are you alright?” Ji Zhao quickly asked.
“I-I’m fine.” Shen Yao covered his head and quickly left the Earth Temple.
Ji Zhao looked at his hasty back and fell into deep thought.
Would Shen Yao, who looked a little silly, really become a high-ranking Grand Secretary in the future?
After filling her stomach, Ji Zhao lay flat and rested.
It felt so good to sleep under the blanket~
