Chapter 159 Are You the Young Taoist Priest From That Day?
Wan’er was still bowing and apologizing to the figure. “I’m really sorry. I accidentally kicked that pebble.”
He Xiangjiang didn’t see the little girl who was bowing clearly.
He just felt that the voice sounded familiar.
So he walked out of the alley.
He wanted to see who the owner of the voice
When he stood in front of Wan’er, he saw a person dressed in red.
Although Wan’er did not raise her head, He Xiangjiang immediately recognized the oppressive aura emanating from the little girl.
He wanted to sneak away because he was afraid that this indiscriminate little girl in front of him would beat him up again if she saw him.
He turned around and wanted to run.
Wan’er was still bowing, and she saw He Xiangjiang’s two feet were already in front of her.
But he didn’t say anything.
She felt strange, so she raised her head, wanting to see who it was.
When she raised her head, she happened to see He Xiangjiang’s stealthy turning action.
Wan’er stood straight and asked.
“Are you the young Taoist priest from the bamboo forest?”
He Xiangjiang saw that the little girl recognized him, and he secretly cursed in his heart. He raised his legs and wanted to run. Wan’er saw this and subconsciously grabbed the corner of He Xiangjiang’s clothes. He Xiangjiang did not stop running and fell forward.
He fell heavily onto the floor.
Wan’er quickly went over to help him up. After helping He Xiangjiang up, the little girl shouted happily.
“It’s really you, young Taoist priest!”
The young Taoist priest endured the pain and forced a smile on his face. “Yeah, what a coincidence.”
Wan’er pointed at He Xiangjiang’s face.
“Why is your nose bleeding?”
After hearing this, the young Taoist priest quickly reached out and wiped his nose with his sleeve.
He looked at his sleeve under the moonlight, and it was dark red.
Only then did the young Taoist priest realize that the fall was quite serious.
The young Taoist priest hurriedly raised his head to prevent his nose from bleeding again, and then he asked the little girl if she had a rope.
Wan’er was anxious and touched her purse.
“Why would I have a rope!”
He Xiangjiang pointed at the little girl’s head and said.
“The headband is fine too.”
Wan’er reached her hands to the back of her head, pulled out her headband from her hair, and handed it to He Xiangjiang. He Xiangjiang wrapped the headband around his left thumb and tied a knot with his teeth and right hand.
Then, he wiped the blood from his nose.
After a while, the blood stopped dripping like water.
Seeing how it worked like magic, Wan’er asked.
“Why does it stop flowing after you tie your thumb?”
He Xiangjiang stood up from the ground and replied as he moved far away from the spot where his blood had dripped from his nose.
“I don’t know what the principle is either. My mother taught me this.”
Wan’er pressed on.
“Then didn’t you ask your mother what’s going
He Xiangjiang said.
“I did. My mother said that the method would work, but she didn’t tell me about the principle.” Wan’er responded with an “oh” and then asked.
“Why are you here?”
He Xiangjiang told the little girl that he came out for a walk because he couldn’t sleep.
Wan’er raised her hand to pat his head.
The young Taoist priest quickly raised his hands to cover his head.
The little girl saw that his sleeves were stained with blood, so she withdrew her hands.
She said with some disdain.
“I’m asking why you’re in this small town.”
He Xiangjiang finally realized what was going on.
“My master and I are on our way. We passed by here, so we’re here.” “What about you?”
Wan’er said proudly.
“It’s none of your business.”
The young Taoist priest did not continue asking.
He only responded with an “oh” and did not say anything
Wan’er looked at the stupid little boy in front of her and felt a little helpless.
“You said that you couldn’t sleep? Why couldn’t you sleep?”
The young Taoist priest wanted to say that it was because his master was snoring in his sleep, but the words were on the tip of his tongue. “Because I’m homesick.”
Wan’er said with some contempt.
“How old are you? Why are you still homesick? I’ve also left my home in Fusheng City, but I’m not homesick?”
He Xiangjiang was rendered speechless. He could only lower his head silently and then ask.
“What about you? Why are you not asleep when it’s already so late?”
Wan’er herself did not know why she could not fall asleep and could not answer.
She waved her small fists and said.
“It’s none of your business.”
Then He Xiangjiang fell silent.
The two of them were silent for a moment.
Wan’er suddenly said.
“You’re in a bad mood, right? Come, I’ll take you somewhere.”
Without waiting for the young Taoist priest to agree, Wan’er took his hand and walked.
The two stopped and walked into the small town.
Every time they reached a place with walls, the little girl would stop and look at it for a moment, then shake her head and walk to the next wall.
He Xiangjiang did not understand and asked.
“Where are we going?”
Wan’er said without turning her head.
“Don’t talk. Just follow me.”
Until she saw an uneven mud wall and the distance between the roof wasn’t much.
Wan’er pointed to this wall.
He Xiangjiang asked in puzzlement.
“Come for what?”
Wan’er frowned and said.
“We’re climbing up! What do you mean by come for what!”
He Xiangjiang couldn’t react in time.
Wan’er urged him. “Hurry up, don’t force me to slap you.” He Xiangjiang could only obey and stand in front of the wall.
However, no matter how hard the young Taoist priest tried, he would always fall halfway. When Wan’er saw this, she reached out to support He Xiangjiang.
She even complained. “You’re so stupid. Step on my hand and go up.”
Then, Wan’er lifted He Xiangjiang with her hand and finally lifted him with great difficulty.
He Xiangjiang climbed up to the roof with trembling hands and feet. He even turned his head to look at Wan’er.
“Then what about you?”
Wan’er put her hands on her hips and said.
“Just mind your own business.”
After He Xiangjiang sat firmly on the roof.
Wan’er began to reach out and climb up.
In no time at all, she climbed up.
Then, she walked straight to the young Taoist priest.
He Xiangjiang saw the little girl walking on the roof as if it was flat ground.
He looked at the little girl with envy.
The little girl stood next to He Xiangjiang and then gave He Xiangjiang a gentle slap on the head.
“Idiot, you’re sitting the opposite way.”
He Xiangjiang grunted in acknowledgment and slowly moved his buttocks and turned his body.
Then, Wan’er also slowly sat down beside He Xiangjiang The two of them faced the moon.
I used to like to do this when I was in a bad mood. I climbed up the roof and looked at the moon for a while. My mood would become better.”
“You should try it too.”
He Xiangjiang nodded and looked at the moon.
After a while, he turned his head and said to Wan’er.
“It doesn’t seem to be working. I still miss home.”
Wan’er thought for a moment and said.
“It can’t be. Usually, when I’m unhappy, after sitting for a while, I’ll feel better.”
“Why don’t you try and quietly say what you’re unhappy about?”
He Xiangjiang nodded seriously.
He turned to face the moon and whispered.
“Father, Mother, Xiangjiang misses you…”
Before he could finish his words, the young Taoist priest cried.
