Chapter 38: Ice Fishing, The Girl’s Emotions

The misunderstanding was cleared, and Scarlett Johansson handed the two maggots to Bell.

Seeing this, Bell asked curiously, “Aren’t you eating?”

Scarlett almost spat out a mouthful of blood.

If it were an adult asking such a question, she would definitely bite him to death.

But seeing Bell’s innocent and cute appearance, Scarlett could only admit defeat.

“No, you can use them to fish.”

Bell stopped teasing her.

“Alright, endure for a while more. We will have food soon.”

Hearing Bell’s relaxed tone, Scarlett realized that Bell had been teasing her.

“This guy…”

Scarlett pointed at Bell for a long time but could not find a suitable word to say.

In the end, she could only give up helplessly.

Bell found a wooden stick. Although the two of them had moved to a lower altitude, they still could not stay on the spot for too long. They had to dig another snow cave. Only then could they fish quietly.

Seeing that Bell was busy again, Scarlett did not stay idle. She imitated Bell and found a wooden stick to dig the snow cave with him.

Because they had experience from earlier, they were much more proficient with it this time.

Of course, it was mainly because Scarlett had become more efficient.

Seeing the girl’s serious expression, Bell nodded and handed the task of digging the snow cave to her.

Bell began to prepare the food.

He took out his parachute and removed the parachute’s cord.

“Our conditions are simple now, but we can use this as a fishing line.”

Bell explained to the audience.

Everyone was also very curious. They looked at Bell on the screen, wanting to see how he would obtain food in this harsh environment.

Bell then used a small piece of iron wire on the parachute to bend it into an iron hook and pierced the maggot as bait.

Bell looked around.

“We need a stone to increase the weight of the bait.”

Bell chose a suitable stone and tied it to the end of the rope.

Then, he repeated his previous actions.

He removed a few pieces of iron wire and hung the maggots on the hooks.

A few more iron hooks were tied to different parts of the cord.

After doing all this, Bell heaved a sigh of relief.

“We’ve completed most of the work. Now, we have to wait for the fish to take the bait.”

Scarlett had finished digging the snow cave.

Bell noticed that Scarlett’s hands were red from the cold. Clearly, she had used her hands to strengthen the roof of the snow cave.

However, as if she had overdone it, her hands were already a little stiff.

Scarlett stuffed her hand into her sleeves, not wanting Bell to see it.

After this period of time, she realized that she did not seem to be of any use to Bell at all. Instead, she was giving Bell trouble everywhere.

She had read some knowledge about wilderness survival before participating in the program, and she had been confident that she could do well.

Now, it seemed like she had been too naive.

She wanted to do whatever she could for Bell.

Bell did not expose Scarlett’s embarrassment.

He smiled and said, “I’m a little cold too. Let’s start a fire. Help me take a look at this bait. If a fish takes the bait, fish it up.”

With that, Bell got up and walked towards the forest to search for dead branches.

Scarlett Johansson sat in front of the snow cave and watched Bell walk away. A smile gradually formed on her face.

“Although he’s not old, he’s quite thoughtful.”

She realized that Bell had seen her embarrassment, but he did not make things difficult for her. This made her have a better impression of him.

The comments were also constantly sending messages, saying strange things like “couple confirmed”.

“Hey, this guy is only eight. Your thoughts are dangerous.”

Scarlett also joked with the audience.

After experiencing the dangers of life and death along with hunger, her mentality had also changed.

Most importantly, she no longer treated Bell as an eight-year-old child.

Whether it was his temperament, survival experience, or intelligence, they were definitely not something ordinary eight-year-old children could possess.

Scarlett even wondered if there was an adult soul in this child’s body.

She had not told Bell this. If she told Bell, she would definitely scare him.

Because she had guessed the correct answer.

The wait seemed to be especially long.

Scarlett was worried that Bell would not return.

From time to time, she would look in the direction Bell had left.

In fact, Bell had not left for long.

After a seemingly endless wait, Scarlett saw Bell again.

He was carrying a pile of dry wood and a few tree branches.

The small figure seemed to have difficulty moving in the snow.

However, there was a trace of determination on Bell’s face.

It seemed like no difficulty could defeat him.

Scarlett was stunned.

At the same time, Bell walked to her.

He asked curiously.

“What are you looking at? Didn’t I tell you to watch the bait? This will decide if we will starve tonight.”

Hearing Bell’s voice, Scarlet Johnson came to her senses.

“Oh, I’m looking, I’m looking. They haven’t taken the bait yet, right?”

Scarlett looked slightly flustered.

Bell ignored the other party’s expression. He walked to the hole and checked the bait. Then, he placed the fir tree branch that he had brought at the hole.

“When choosing to fish in the ice, we have to have a support, because this way, we can avoid the hole from freezing again.”

Bell explained to the audience.

However, the comments were a little strange. Their focus did not seem to be on survival.

Bell ignored it and the mood of the girl beside him, and continued to focus on his actions.

This was Wilderness Survival, not a romance show.
