BTAWWBTN Chapter 25

The red stone

This was something that was originally written in the script. Fang Zhi also knew in advance that such a scene would happen. But at this point, he was looking at another performer from top to bottom, and he could even see his own shadow from the other side’s eyes.

It was just that. The surprise that came out might be better than he expected.

Lin Ji didn’t know what the man on the opposite side was thinking. He reached out and pinned the young man’s long drooping hair, looked at him tenderly and affectionately, and asked softly.”Are you all right?”

Fang Zhi suddenly returned to his senses.

Zhuang Mu looked at the unnatural blush on his face, with a tint of happiness reflected in his eyes. Without any hesitation he took the other party’s hand, and stood up with a light help: “Thank you, are you all right?.”

“All right.”

Zhuang Mu knew that he was embarrassed and didn’t say much.

Yu Wenyao was not a native of Huashen County. He originally planned to return the red silk cloth. He reluctantly accepted the flower fabric and the hospitality of the local people.

Although there was a little accident on the way, Zhuang Mu and Yu Wenyao still walked through the entire street.

Zhuang Mu saw the young man staring at the old man who was selling candied haws. Thinking that he wanted to eat candied haws, Zhuang Mu smiled and asked him to wait for him in place for a while.

Yu Wenyao nodded, watching the back of the man gradually walking away, and then he raised his head to look at the lantern just above it. If only it……

The young man’s fingertips on the red silk cloth tightened unconsciously. He counted the number of lamps at a very fast speed. But Look around, nothing happened…

“What are you looking at?”

A familiar voice came from his side, Yu Wenyao turned his head in surprise, saw the man who should have walked away beside him, and looked up with him at the man above the Lantern.

Yu Wenyao’s mood was a little complicated. “You’re not going to…”

“That’s right,” Zhuang Mu just finished counting the lamps, and he looked down at the young man in front of him. With a bright smile on his face, “I haven’t asked you yet. Which one do you want to eat?”

Because they had to get up early the next day to travel, the two returned to the inn after visiting lamp street. Although the room was spacious, there was only one bed, and the two of them wanted the other to sleep on the bed.

On one side Yu Wenyao argued that His Majesty’s dragon body was noble and that it would be inappropriate for the emperor to make him sleep on the floor, while he sleeps in his bed. Neither of them persuaded the other, and finally, Zhuang Mu sighed and asked the store to find some guys over.

After everyone came, they threw down the whole ingot with a slap, saying that they wanted to trouble them to help build a temporary bed, preferably within half an hour. The two rested at night. Because of the whole day of traveling, Zhuang Mu soon fell asleep. In the middle of the night, he faintly heard the sound of the window opening. He subconsciously felt that he should get up and take a look at the situation, but his eyelids were too heavy, and he quickly fell asleep again.

Waking up the next morning, Yu Wenyao had finished grooming, and he was sitting quietly by the window and reading a book.

Zhuang Mu just woke up, and his mind was still a little hazy. He said early, and then asked casually: “Did you hear anything last night?”

Yu Wenyao turned a page: “What sound?”

“You didn’t  hear it?” Zhuang Mu snorted, “It was probably just a dream I had.”

After breakfast, they hit the road. Soon they arrived at Red Rock Village within two days. The people in the village know Yu Wenyao. When they saw him back, they all greeted him warmly.

As soon as Zhuang Mu came to the village, he saw the unnamed lonely mountain behind the village.“The medicinal herbs that your master said are hard to find, is  that you have to go to the mountain to find them?”

Yu Wenyao hummed. He pushed open the door of his room and invited Zhuang Mu in.

Zhuang Mu does not dislike the simple house, he walked inside and asked, “Then when do we leave?”

Yu Wenyao picked a basket: “That place…it’s not so easy to walk, you wait here for a while…”

The smile on Zhuang Mu’s face faded instantly, and his brows were frowned: “Do you want to go alone?”

Yu Wenyao nodded: “That road is very dangerous, it’s not easy to walk, I can’t let you take risks.”

“Can I let you face danger alone?!” Zhuang Mu’s voice rose unconsciously.

Both of them were taken aback. Zhuang Mu realized that he had lost his way, he scratched his hair and gritted his teeth. Quickly he made up his mind. “Okay, then I’ll say it straight,” he raised his head and looked into the young man’s eyes seriously. He walked towards him and said, “I’m reluctant.”

Yu Wenyao looked stunned: “What…”

“I said I was reluctant,” Zhuang Mu held his face gently, his voice was gentle and intoxicating, “You don’t understand at all?”

Yu Wenyao understands. But the things between them made him dare not understand.

It suddenly started to rain outside. The raindrops fell on the leaves, and the ground, making a pattering sound.

“Well,” Zhuang Mu didn’t intend to force him too tightly, and he withdrew his hand.

“The mountain roads are even more difficult to walk on rainy days, why don’t we go together tomorrow?”

Yu Wenyao hummed very lightly.

The rain was so fierce that it did not stop for a while.

Zhuang Mu stood at the door and was suddenly attracted by the red stones piled up in the corner of the yard. Strangely, when he came in just now, he didn’t seem to see such a pile of red stones.

Yu Wenyao saw his doubts and explained.“These stones are our specialty here. Usually, they are no different from ordinary stones, but they turn red when it rains.”

“That’s why it’s called Hongshi Village.” Zhuang Mu understands.

The rain was getting heavier than before. The stone in the corner of the yard also turned redder, as if it were about to bleed.

Zhuang Mu leaned on the table and fell asleep unconsciously.

“It’s too late, you can go.”The man’s voice came suddenly from the yard.

Yu Wenyao looked towards the door and looked at the man in golden armor calmly across the rain curtain.

“Are you crazy?” The man’s expression darkened, “If you stay by his side, you will die.”
