Chapter 507 Fanwai Princess and Shadow 17
William went to the dyeing workshop to see Anna, and An An and Jing Qi went to see the grandfather they met here last time.
The dog’s sense of smell is the most sensitive. From a distance, the thin dog who ate An An’s beef jerky last time ran over slowly, stuck out his tongue and licked An An’s feet.
An’an touched its skinny head: “Don’t worry! The jerky is enough this time!”
Two children and a dog came to the broken house, and it was still the same as the last time I saw it. The old man sat motionless outside the broken house, not even changing his posture. In addition to the breath of a living person, like a statue,
An An squatted down and put the food brought by the old man’s hand. Seeing that the other party was still unmoved, he just pretended that he couldn’t hear, so he could only talk and gesture. Happy…” Waiting for the intimate words.
As a result, he became anxious, but what he said was: “Grandpa, you will only be able to stay in a daze when you are full!”
Responding to what I said? An An hurriedly covered her mouth.
Immediately he breathed a sigh of relief, but fortunately, grandpa couldn’t hear him. And what she just said seems to be Chinese.
Just as he was thinking this way, he saw the old man in front of him, who was as motionless as a statue, raised his hand and waved it. He paused, as if he was afraid that she might misunderstand, he picked up a piece of bread and put it on his lips to bite it lightly.
An An’s eyes widened in shock: “Grandpa, you can hear me!”
Jing Qi was also a little surprised, and deliberately called “Grandpa” in Chinese. It’s a pity that the old man hasn’t responded since he made a move just now.
The two children looked at each other, but An An didn’t care much: “Maybe it’s just a coincidence! Grandpa probably just doesn’t want to reject us.”
But knowing that the old man can hear, she is still very happy. He took out the jerky and squatted down to feed the skinny dog.
Although this dog is skinny, it is quite human. He was fed twice by An An and was very affectionate to the little guy.
One person and one dog chased back and forth in the open space. No matter how smart the little guy was, he couldn’t escape the child’s nature, and his crisp and carefree laughter spread far and wide.
Although Jingqi disliked childishness, it did not affect his active participation.
No one noticed that although the old man who was sitting motionless in front of the dilapidated house still didn’t raise his head, the expression on his face couldn’t help but move.
The laughter reached the ears of a group of girls who were playing on the ice in the distance.
Different from being in prison, the prisoners who are exiled here are free except for the fixed daily working hours, except that they cannot leave the Mayan city.
Listening to this carefree laughter, many girls felt envious. Although they were also playing around, even when they laughed, they restrained themselves.
But girls as young as them are mostly implicated by the family. As long as they become adults and atone for the family, they still have the opportunity to go out, marry and have children like normal people…
Only in the corner, a girl with a thin face stared at An An’s cheerful running figure in the distance, her eyes were full of resentment,
Her name is Rebecca, the little girl who An An felt pitiful and gave bread to on the official ship before.
Rebecca hated Ann for no other reason than feeling unfair.
Obviously they are all in trouble, so how can some people have such a good life? With just one face, he could make the vicious officials look good, and he was even taken back to the City Lord’s Mansion.
And she and her mother tried so hard to escape from the country, but they were finally caught back. She felt that these officials were ruthless, and her mother knelt down to beg them. Couldn’t she turn a blind eye and let them go?
These people are really stupid. Even if they atone for their sins, they will leave the stain of criminals all their lives, and they can only marry ordinary men.
An An, who was chasing after them with the thin dog, also noticed them, and trotted over with her eyes bright. They were all half-grown children. Although An An was the youngest, they quickly got together.
An An stomped on the ice hard, and asked in a completely new way: “Will the ice not crack if so many of us step on it?”
An’an’s familiarity made them relax, and the girl next to her laughed and said, “No way! How thick is this ice? Don’t mention us, even if a group of strong laborers step on it, it won’t crack.”
A group of girls overheard the conversation between the two and joked in good faith: “Don’t you Orientals freeze the river in winter?”
“It’s also frozen, but not as thick!”
Although Beijing is quite cold in winter, the lake generally does not freeze too deeply. She still remembered that Qin Shuqing secretly went to play on the frozen lake last winter, but stepped on the broken ice with too much force and almost fell off. After returning home, he was beaten for half a month and did not dare to go out.
However, it is much colder here than in the capital, and it is no exaggeration to say that a drop of water turns into ice.
At this time, there was a burst of excitement from a young boy in the distance, and the girl who spoke just now turned her head to look: “Oh, Jack and the others are catching fish! Let’s go and join in the fun.”
While talking, he dragged An An to the place where the crowd gathered. The river was very long, and the other side of the river was excitedly surrounding a circle of boys.
An An was curious: “How can I catch fish when the lake is frozen!”
“I’ve heard of this,” Jingqi explained, “In the north of us, where the climate is colder, ice fishing is used, that is, a hole is cut in the ice, and a fishing rod can be used to fish directly on the ice. There should be a request!”
“Wow! Although I don’t understand it, it sounds amazing!”
During the conversation, a group of people had trotted to the destination, which was similar to what Jing Qi said, but there were still people using fishing nets to catch fish.
An An poked Jing Qi’s arm, eager to try: “How about… let’s try too!”
Jing Qi knew what she wanted to do without looking, and she refused with a serious face: “No, if you get wet and catch a cold, you will cry!”
Seeing the little girl’s unconvinced expression, he emphasized coldly: “Whether you want to go home or not! This is not Daxia. If you get sick, no one can tell what will happen.”
Although Jingqi, the brother, is willing to accompany her to toss around most of the time, but if she really screams, An An can’t help it.
Jing Qi saw her drooping her little head, her long curly eyelashes drooping down, and she couldn’t help feeling a little soft-hearted. He rolled up his sleeves: “Don’t you just want to catch fish? Wait, I’ll catch it for you!”
An An raised her head and stared at him suspiciously: “Can you catch fish?”
“…can’t be learned.”
He carefully watched the professional fishing techniques of the boys across the street. It was not difficult to learn, but he felt it was too slow.
The following officials could not help but also participated in it.
Jing Qi and a servant worked together to cut through a hole in the ice, and then exchanged some bait with the same half-grown boy who ate. He found wood again and began to cut wood thorns with a knife.
An An became a little interested, and stared at him in disbelief: “You want to stick a wooden thorn into a fish with your bare hands!”
Jing Qi nodded casually, “This way the grasping speed is faster.”
An An said earnestly: “Brother, self-confidence is necessary, but we can’t aim too high!”
I remember one time when the family went out to play in the city, mother said that she wanted to eat fish, father found a small stream, cut seven or eight wooden sticks for fish, and threw them into the water at will.
There was a splash, the water splashed, and then a row of seven or eight fish were thrown ashore.
She remembered that scene in her heart for a long time. Whenever she felt that practicing martial arts was hard, she would unconsciously recall the strength of martial arts training.
Jing Qi had already set his posture, and he fixed the bait. “How do you know if you don’t try?”
However, the reality is that Jing Qi struggled for a long time, only to barely meet the shadow of a fish, and all the fish that came over ran away in a fright.
Feng Lisheng catches fish relying on the powerful internal force that has reached the state of perfection,
And Jing Qi is still in the stage of body training, at most she has touched the threshold of inner martial arts.
Jing Qi is not willing to admit defeat. Originally, she just wanted to catch a fish to make An An happy, but now she is a little more serious.
An’an felt bored after watching it for a while, and began to slide on the ice. Anyway, she was wearing thick clothes, and it didn’t hurt if she fell.
After repeated practice many times, Jing Qi gradually figured out some tricks, but she did not forget to distract her attention and stare at An An:
“Don’t walk around, someone has dug a hole in the ice nearby to fish, it’s still a bit dangerous.”
An’an happily spun around, but didn’t turn her head when she heard the words: “Got it,”
She and a group of girls held hands and slid forward. There was a hole in the ice that was smashed and not yet frozen. The girl who took the lead was about to make a detour skillfully, when there was a commotion behind her.
The girl behind An An felt pushed, and was driven by inertia to bump into An An.
Jing Qi finally inserted a fish. He raised his head to look at An An with a smile on his face. When he saw the picture in front of him, his pupils shrank suddenly, and he threw down the wooden spike and moved madly towards An An’s direction.
When the danger came, An An didn’t care to panic, she knew that if she fell, she might not be able to climb up.
She pursed her lips and showed the strength of striding horses every day. When she fell, she pressed one palm to the ground, trying to keep her body balanced. At this time, her head was facing the ice hole.
Rebecca, who withdrew her hand, saw that An An didn’t fall, gritted her teeth angrily, stretched out her hand and pushed An An, who was about to get up soon, when her head got hot.
The two of them were relatively close to each other, but this accident happened only in a flash.
Everyone screamed in horror. It was too late to attack Rebecca’s viciousness, so she stared at An An.
Jing Qi who rushed over was blindsided, and stretched out her hand to catch Chao An’an, but there was one person who moved faster than him.
Just at the critical moment, everyone felt a very fast afterimage passing by, and An An, who was about to fall into the ice cave, was pulled far away.
It wasn’t until the moment when her feet landed firmly that An An had a sense of reality, and only then did she realize it belatedly.
She seems to have passed through the gate of hell!
At the moment when she was out of danger, the little girl’s first thought was, it’s okay, mother doesn’t know about this, otherwise the fried pork with bamboo shoots is light, and the number of words in the review is definitely not online.
She was still in a daze and didn’t come in, when Jing Qi rushed over and hugged her tightly,
“An’an, I’m sorry! I didn’t protect you well,”
At the end, there was a hint of crying in his voice.
An An finally regained her soul and pushed him: “Hey! Let me go first, your shoulder hurts me so much!”
Jing Qi subconsciously let go of her arms.
An An looked at his red eye circles, and couldn’t help but soften her heart. She had never seen this guy cry since she could remember. The mouth is not forgiving: “Hey, I haven’t cried yet? Why are you crying!”
Jingqi turned her face away uncomfortably, and said in a muffled voice, “…there is sand in my eyes!”
An’an was speechless: “Brother, you said that ice cubes are more reliable than sand in your eyes!”
She looked around her eyes before realizing it belatedly: “Who saved me just now!”
Jing Qi wiped away her tears: “It’s Grandpa!”
An An just wanted to ask if it was the grandpa he was thinking of? A loud commotion was heard in the distance. The first time An An was rescued, Rebecca was held down by the yamen who reacted.
She naturally wouldn’t admit it, and she cried out through Sapo, saying that she didn’t mean it.
An An walked over and immediately recognized Rebecca as the little girl she met on the official ship.
For a while, she didn’t know what to feel in her heart, but she felt a little stuffy and uncomfortable. She asked Jing Qi: “Do I count as the farmer and the snake that Mr. said, Sheng Mien fights Mi Qiu!”
The same is true of the Wen Wan I met before, and now there is Rebecca again, which makes her a little discouraged and wonders if she is particularly unpopular with girls of her age?
Jingqi’s face was sullen: “Don’t affect your mentality for a few irrelevant people.”
After speaking, she directly pulled a veil from An An’s body and blocked Rebecca’s mouth, then turned her head and asked An An: “How do you want to deal with her?”
The servants on the side also hurriedly agreed, saying that they would report to William that he would not let the girl in front of him go. They were specially sent by Lord William to protect the two children, and naturally they wanted to make up for such a mistake more than anyone else.
An’an was also very angry. If she hadn’t been lucky, something might have happened just now.
An An tied the rope around Rebecca’s waist, pushed her into the ice hole and choked up a lot of water, which made her experience the fear of hovering on the verge of death.
Although she has gone through a lot of things along the way, but at this age, she can only think of retaliation, not murder.
The yamen messenger went to report the letter, and William hurried over, and was shocked to get the news, and he broke out in a cold sweat. Ruoan’an is really the queen’s niece, what if something happened? , he can’t afford it.
He waved someone to take Rebecca straight down. Before leaving, An An repeatedly told the girls that she fell down and had nothing to do with them, and told the steward not to punish them. She didn’t feel relieved to leave until the steward agreed with William’s signal.
The girls who were playing on the ice just now breathed a sigh of relief, and looked at An An’s back with grateful eyes.
It wasn’t until after walking a long way that An An took the opportunity to ask: “You said it was the old man in the house over there who saved me? You read that right!”
Jing Qi nodded: “He is very fast, he pulled you over and he left. But I can’t be wrong.”
The opponent’s movement was really fast, and the two yamen servants present couldn’t see clearly.
And he faintly noticed that the other party did not leave, as if they were following them in the dark.
Or, since they came here, the old man has been following them secretly, but he deliberately hid it before, so he didn’t feel it at all.
He is naturally sensitive to such things beyond ordinary people. He has an intuition that now he can faintly feel that someone is following them.
It can be seen how powerful the opponent’s martial arts are!
An’an’s mind was blank at the time, only remembering that when she was about to fall, there was a very powerful arm pulling her far away. Thinking about it this way, it seemed that he could faintly hear the sound of iron chains colliding.
An An didn’t understand: “But if this is the case, the old man is so powerful, why…” It seems that life is so bleak!
Jingqi: “Just ask and you will know.”
The two of them usually communicate in Chinese, and William couldn’t help asking curiously: “What are you talking about?”
An’an pointed in the direction of the dilapidated house: “Are we talking about the old man?”
When a group of people arrived at the dilapidated house, the door was empty. The stone bench at the door was still there, but the old man sitting like a statue was not there, but the thin dog was there.
An’an gently touched its head: “Where is the old man?”
Jingqi closed her eyes, quietly listening to the various sounds passing by around her, then opened her eyes, and looked in a certain direction outside the house,
The next moment, a figure flashed in front of him, and an old man with loose hair appeared silently from nowhere.
An An looked at the grandfather who suddenly appeared in front of him, and his eyes widened in surprise: “It’s really you!”
It’s no wonder the little guy was surprised, it was clearly the same person, but his temperament was completely different from what he had seen before. Although the man in front of him was still skinny and his hair was white and messy, when he stood up, he completely lost the feeling of withering and desolation, and his back was straightened unconsciously, like a sharp sword out of its sheath!
An An raised her head and looked at the old man in front of her curiously, her eyes adored: “You are the legendary hidden master! You are really amazing!
Thank you for saving me just now. “
The old man couldn’t speak, but just waved his hands lightly.
William squinted his eyes thoughtfully. He kept guessing that the old man was not an ordinary person. Unfortunately, the other party refused to say anything and did not leave, so he ignored it.
He was born in the Earl’s Mansion, so he has seen some world experience, but he has never seen the skill that the old man just showed in his life.
William warmly invited: “If the old man doesn’t dislike it, you can go to the official’s house as a guest.”
He just said it casually, and didn’t expect the old man to agree. After all, he has been in office for two years, and the old man has always been very lonely in his impression.
But he didn’t want him to finish speaking, the old man actually nodded slightly.
William couldn’t help but be surprised. Some people have a natural reverence for the strong, and William can’t help it.
An’an and An An were also very happy. They talked to the old man from time to time along the way, but unfortunately the other party couldn’t communicate normally.
Jing Qi kept staring at the old man, and couldn’t help being curious about his martial arts skills. “I don’t know what your name is, grandpa?”
Just arrived at the carriage at this time, Jing Qi found a pen and paper from the carriage,
The old man picked up the pen, paused with his fingertips, and slowly wrote down a name, which was written in Chinese characters.
Before the two children had time to be amazed that he could speak Chinese, An An looked at the words on the paper and said strangely: “Shadou, what a strange name?
Then we will call you Grandpa Sha from now on, shall we? “
The old man seemed to be stunned for a moment, and then nodded casually.
William came over, handed several bundles of red thread to Jing Qi, and joked with the two of them with a smile: “I want to learn how to do business, do you want uncle to find someone to take you?”
An’an shook her head resolutely, her tone was full of confidence: “Thank you uncle, I am very good at business.”
William raised his eyebrows with interest, “Oh, then when Ms. An An makes a lot of money, don’t forget to invite uncle to dinner.”
An An generously patted her small chest: “Don’t worry, when I find my family, I will invite my uncle to eat at the best restaurant in Maya City.”
However, within half an hour, the little guy slapped him in the face.
