Chapter 1237: The Story of Ling and Heng (500)
The person she hadn’t seen for four months suddenly appeared here.
Feng Ling had no idea how he knew she was here.
Although she had her cell phone with her, she hadn’t charged it for a long time. She lived here like a savage all day, but she had lived here when she was young, so even if she was bored all day long, she could still endure it. She had come out to let herself loose, so she could do whatever she wanted. However, her cell phone was not turned on, and there was no GPS. How did he guess that she was here?
Li Nanheng was wearing a simple raincoat from XI Base, but the jungle was too big for him to drive in. After walking so far, his body was already covered in water. His short black hair was dripping water, and his dark eyes were bright as he looked at the little woman squatting by the fire, holding a wooden stick in one hand and looking at him blankly.
After a long time, Feng Ling blinked and looked at him. “You…”
Li Nanheng raised his brows. “Not welcome?”
“How did you…” She wanted to ask him how he found her, but on second thought, Li Nanheng seemed to know more about her than she did.
She stopped mid-sentence and looked at him while still squatting by the fire. As the man approached, she couldn’t help but raise her head to look at him.
Then she suddenly retracted her gaze and looked at the black travel bag he had thrown over there.
“I’ve been walking for the whole morning. I’m hungry. Do you have anything to eat?” After not seeing her for a few months, Li Nanheng was not unfamiliar with her. He casually pulled open the zipper of his raincoat and placed the raincoat on the temporary wooden shelf Feng Ling had placed by the side. He bent down like her and reached out toward the fire, as if he wanted to roast the moisture off his body.
Feng Ling looked at him again. It had been several months since she last spoke, and she seemed to be unable to speak for a while. However, seeing that Li Nanheng was completely unaffected, and looking at his squatting posture as he neared the fire, she stiffly and awkwardly took the stick back from the fire. Then she pointed the stick at the wild vegetables and wild fruits piled in the corner behind her, as well as a wild rabbit. En, she poked at the side again and pointed at the roasted earthworm she was hiding.
Looking at those things, not only did Li Nanheng not show any discomfort, but he even sat down on the ground. “Yes, yes, all of them are good stuff. Even roasted earthworms can’t be eaten outside. How would these Americans know how high the proteins in the earthworms are?”
Feng Ling looked at him for a long time and finally found the words to say: “Li Nanheng, you left XI Base alone and came here with a travel bag to eat earthworms with me? Are you crazy?”
The man raised his hand and casually played with his short hair that had been drenched by the rain. His voice was low and pleasing. “I’ve waited for you for four months. If you don’t go back, I can only accompany you. All right, don’t talk so much. I’m hungry. Quickly prepare food for me.”
With that, he glanced at the fire. “How do you cook this? Can you control the heat well?”
Feng Ling was expressionless. “I can’t say for sure, but at least I didn’t starve to death here.”
What Li Nanheng was most satisfied with was that although she had lived alone in the jungle for several months, she did not lose weight. In fact, she seemed to have gained some weight. She was very thin. Now, at least the dimples at the corners of her lips were more obvious.
“All right, I’ll eat whatever you cook.”
Feng Ling glanced at him again. He was already here. It wasn’t right for her to ask him to leave. It was still raining outside.
She had no choice but to pour the water in the pot into another clean pot. Then she got up and picked up the wild vegetables to wash. Since Li Nanheng asked her to eat the roasted earthworm first, she would help him.
In fact, this thing was really delicious. When she was young, she had also eaten the roasted dragonfly and found it delicious. She just didn’t know if Li Nanheng could enjoy the taste of these insects.
When she got up, she glanced at the travel bag he brought and asked, “You didn’t bring me a bunch of barbecue or food like you did at Rogers Pass, did you?”
“No.” Li Nanheng sat there and continued to grill the fire. He said leisurely, “You insisted on returning to the jungle to experience primitive life to calm your heart. I can’t ruin your plans. The bag is filled with clothes for you and me, and some tools.”
“Tools? What tools?” Feng Ling was not particularly curious. After asking, she did not wait for his answer and continued to cook.
Li Nanheng did not answer. He looked at the cave she lived in and then at the stone platform that was about two meters long and one meter wide. It was long enough but not wide enough.
After looking at it for a while, he said, “If you sleep on this stone bed alone, I’m afraid we can only hug each other to sleep.”
Feng Ling: “… ” She turned to glare at him. “Just come over and take a look. I’ll go back sooner or later. Do you really want to live here? ”
“You don’t care about XI Base anymore?”
“Of course. But my wife is here. I can’t just leave her alone.”
“… It’s none of your business.” After not seeing him for several months, Feng Ling felt a little embarrassed.
Li Nanheng could tell that she was trying to distance herself from him. He smiled but raised his eyebrows at her words.
Feng Ling also realized that she had indirectly admitted that she was his wife. She immediately shut her mouth and did not speak again. When she bent down to pick up the roasted earthworms, her movements were slightly angry.
These were the roasted earthworms that she had worked hard to save up over the past few months. It was especially difficult to dig them up. It was even more difficult than hunting other wild animals. In the end, he actually wanted to eat roasted earthworms as soon as he came. He even knew that these things had rich proteins. As expected of the eldest young master of the Li family, he knew how to pick good things.
As she busied herself, she felt that the man had suddenly entered her world. He was a man who had barged into her life and caused her heart to be restless. She was no longer calm and decided to find a topic. “I haven’t contacted Mrs. Mo recently. I wonder how she is now.”
“She went to England.”
Feng Ling paused and looked at him as if she didn’t understand.
