Back to the Countryside


Chapter 64:  晕倒  (Faint)


Part 1


When Qi Yue opened his eyes today, the sky was already bright. He turned his head to the side, looked at He Ling beside him, who was still sleeping soundly under the guilt so he went over and kissed his face. After that, he got up first.


        After he washed up, he went into the kitchen to prepare breakfast. He hadn't eaten well in the past few days because he had been so busy with work in the fields. Because of this, he felt that Ah Ling had lost some weight.


        After chopping up some meat and putting it aside, Qi Yue rolled out the dough, grind it into thin skin, and produce little wontons. He took out the pan to fry the egg and put it on top. 


        When he had finished making this, he went back to the room. He saw that He Ling was unexpectedly still asleep, There was no sign of him waking up at all. He frowned and smoothed out the strands of hair that were scattered over his face, but the person on the bed hadn't even moved, which showed how deeply he had slept.


        He guessed that he had been exhausted for the past two days.Qi Yue couldn't bear to wake him up, He pulled the guilt up to cover over him, got up and went out of the room again.


        He ate both of the wontons before he covered the rest with a cloth. If his little Fu Lang wakes up, he can cook the raw wontons for himself 


        Having done all that he needed to do,

Qi Yue went out to the fields on his own. No one in the village would have any bad idea and dare to come to his house now. He was very relieved.


        When He Ling woke up, there was no one around him. He sat up immediately and looked out of the window to see the color of the sky (weather). Unexpectedly, it was almost noon.He supported his groggy head with his hand. He was annoyed by the fact that he had woken up so late. 


        Since it was already this time, he was not in a hurry to rush to the field. He could bring the lunch to the field with him after he finished cooking it. Thinking of this, he lifted the guilt out of the bed and fetched some water to wash up.


    As soon as he entered the kitchen, He Ling found the small wontons that had been covered up by cloth. It warmed his heart that his Xiang Gong had got up early in the morning to make it yet he wasn't able to eat the wontons with him.


        He blamed himself once again before he cooked the wontons and ate it. After that, he cooked the rice, fried some of his favourite dishes and put it into a basket and carried it out of the house.


        After working in the field all morning, Xiang Gong and Hua Ge'er must have been hungry.He Ling quickened his pace and wanted to get there early so that they could eat lunch. 


        Unfortunately, at this very moment, he ran into the last person that he wanted to meet.It was his eldest aunt, Qian.They met face-to-face and both stopped their footsteps. 


          Qian also had a basket in her hand, apparently she was also going to the field to deliver the food. He Gui's legs were not convenient for him to deliver the food now. Moreover,he had to look after the two children. He could not spare his hands at all. Besides that, he didn't know how to cook either.So every day she would come back home and cook for the family and bring it to the fields too. 


        He Ling and Qi Yue usually came back home to eat and rested for half an hour before going over to the field again, so he never ran into her. Today he met her because he woke up late. 

    

        His feet paused just for a moment, before he turned his face away as if he had not seen her. He intended to leave straight away.


        "Stop!" Seeing that he was ignoring her, Qian was annoyed. No matter what, she was still an elder so even if he didn't know her well, he should have said hello to her, "How can you be so rude like this?"


        He Ling had to stop because she blocked his way. He looked sideways and put his line of sight on her face. Still, he didn't say anything.


        "What kind of look is that? Is that the right attitude towards your elders?!" Reason told Qian that she should not ask for trouble and provoke him but she just couldn't endure it. Her own family was now in a cloud of sorrow. These ger whom she had ordered around since he was a child, was getting more and more prosperous. 


        "He Tian family's!" He Ling opened his mouth to call her. However, his words made her even more angry, "You've got nothing to do huh? But I'm very busy. If you want to lecture someone, it's better for you to find someone else!"


        "What did you call me?" Qian's eyes widened. She couldn't believe her own ears.  How dare he call her that?


"What do you think I should call you, with the relationship between our two families now?" Ever since that day at Zhao Family's house, when he found out the truth about his mother, He Ling had restrained himself from thinking too much about it but this main cause of a disaster had to come and hang around in front of his eyes.


        "He Ling!" Qian was so angry that she could barely breathe, pointing at his nose and said, "At least I have raised you.

You even refuse to call me 'Big Auntie'?

You're really getting more and more capable huh?"


        "Raised me single-handedly?"

He Ling looked down and repeated the words.He looked at her again, could not tell what emotion was in his eyes. "Why do I need you to raise me?"
