Jiang Zebei thought that Cheng Mengtian did not want to go, so his tone was not very nice.
But Chen Mengtian snapped out of her daze when he spoke.
She cast a glance at Jiang Zebei’s upper body. He might be in the river right then, but his fair and muscular upper body was above the water, and a flash of admiration appeared in her eyes.
It was followed by a mischievous smirk. “Why are you in such a hurry? I’ll go back and get your clothes for you, but you have to wash these ones. They stink!”
As she spoke, she quickly threw the sour- and foul-smelling clothes into the water.
After she was done showing her scorn, she turned around and left.
When she left, she did not forget to take the linen bag stuffed full of medicinal herbs and ginseng, which she had placed beside the hunting tools.
As Jiang Zebei watched the girl leave, anger burned in his eyes.
Chen Mengtian actually regarded him with scorn!
At that moment, Jiang Zebei was in a really bad mood.
But the moment he cast a glance at the foul-smelling clothes that drifted in front of him, he could not retort.
Yet the feeling of being exposed was really horrible, especially when the person who did that to him was Chen Mengtian. He could not accept it.
An aggrieved look appeared on Jiang Zebei’s face, but once he accepted his fate, he started washing his clothes.
Half an hour later, he finished washing.
At the same time, he heard someone running toward him.
The girl was dressed in a light pink dress, and as the last rays of light shone on her, she ran over.
She was carrying something in her arms.
Jiang Zebei knew that she was most likely carrying his clothes in her arms.
They might be far away from each other, so he could not see the girl’s face clearly, but he knew that there had to be a faint layer of sweat covering her sweet face.
Jiang Zebei remained in the water as he watched the girl run over to him.
The dim, yellow light of the setting sun shone on the girl, making her give off a warm feeling.
The anger and grievance Jiang Zebei felt a moment ago disappeared like the wind at that moment.
The sight of the girl running toward him warmed his cold heart.
Chen Mengtian soon brought the dark blue clothes in her arms to the riverbank.
After she went back home, she did not even waste time to drink some water. She just started looking through the familiar but unfamiliar room.
Once she found the dark blue clothes in the closet, she ran out of the house.
It was already the beginning of winter, and Jiang Zebei had just been cured of a viper’s venom. Staying soaked in cold water for a long period of time would definitely cause him to fall sick.
Cheng Mengtian stopped beside the river and extended her arm to beckon Jiang Zebei over. “I brought your clothes! Come up quick!”
Jiang Zebei pursed his lips tight and stared at the girl with a complicated gaze.
Or rather, he was staring at the sweat on her forehead.
He could sense that Chen Mengtian was different now, but he could not tell just what about her was different.
Her actions seemed more authentic and like she was a proper human being nonw.
When he saw her beckoning him over, Jiang Zebei’s lips twitched.
No. He should say that Chen Mengtian had become siller than before.
The complicated look in his eyes turned into contempt. “Put the clothes on the ground. I’ll put them on later. Go back home and wait for me.”
Chen Mengtian could not understand his real meaning.
When she heard that he wanted to continue staying in the water, she immediately became frantic. “Hurry up and come out! If you stay in the water, you’ll fall sick!”
The worry and concern in her eyes was real.
Jiang Zebei sighed long and hard, then growled at her. “Go back first.”
“Come out first and put something on!” Chen Mengtian decided to start arguing with him.
When Jiang Zebei heard what she said, he ground his teeth. “How am I supposed to put them on while you’re here? Do you want to stay here and watch me put on my clothes?”
Chen Mengtian finally understood what he was trying to say.
Speechless, she stared at the boy in the water.
