Chapter 6: It’s Impossible to pay back the young lady’s life-saving grace (1)
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt like she was dreaming.
In her dream, she was wandering in the heavy traffic of a crowded city.
A young couple next to the road were arguing about something.
She walked closer to take a look. Wasn’t this man her scum ex-boyfriend whom she hadn’t seen in a long time?
Apart from his handsome appearance, he had no strengths. He cheated on her and she had dumped him eight hundred years ago.
What was he doing here?
Looking again, wasn’t that woman herself? At the time had an indifferent face and she was saying something, but she couldn’t make out what she was saying from afar.
Zhou Xiaoxiao thought of something and she felt a sense of fear washing over her. She wanted to reach out to stop herself from talking! Don’t trigger him! He will—kill you! Zhou Xiaoxiao watched the sharp knife penetrate her body in a split second with astonishment. The world suddenly turned upside down as she lay on the ground. She could clearly feel everything as her warm blood flowed out of her body and soaked her back in blood.
It turned out to be the memory of her death during her past life.
“Xiaoxiao, Xiaoxiao, I…I didn’t do it on purpose.”
“Omg! Murder! Call the police quickly.”
“Call the ambulance! Call the ambulance right now!”
“Hey, hey. Miss, how are you feeling?”
“Is anyone coming to save me? Did the ambulance come? Why hasn’t it come yet? I don’t want to die; I don’t want to die!”
But she couldn’t yell out or even cry. She could only see the people walking past her and the gray sky. A small snowflake fell from the sky and landed on the corner of her eyes–chilly and cold…
The ice-cold snowflake woke her up alarmingly. Where am I? Zhou Xiaoxiao opened her eyes and felt herself lying on the ground filled with snow. Snowflakes floated down from the gray sky above and landed upon her face.
She suddenly felt herself being pulled by a great force and then being dragged forward for some distance. She turned her head and saw a person crawling on all fours. The person crawled a few steps forward, and then pulled on the woven belt with great force. He crawled some more and turned to pull on the belt again. The belt was tied around Zhou Xiaoxiao’s underarm and extended towards the young man’s shoulders, who helped to pull Zhou Xiao forward.
Zhou Xiaoxiao recovered her consciousness; she finally realized that she was back in the ancient era again. She had fallen on the snowfield previously, and now? It was Yu Xingzhi, the man with a broken leg, who was now crawling as he dragged her forward.
The snow beneath her left a long trail of evidence of being dragged; she couldn’t see the end of the road behind her! She didn’t know how long he had supported her like this! Zhao Xiaoxiao quickly jumped up and walked forward to help Yu Xingzhi. His face was pale, and his hands and legs were as cold as ice, ice was slowly forming on his clothes. He looked towards Zhou Xiaoxiao, but he couldn’t say anything. He fainted after he attempted to move his lips a few times.
“Come on! You have to keep it up! We’re almost there, we were almost there!” Zhou Xiaoxiao carried him on her shoulder; his body was cold as ice and all four of his limbs were drooping. She didn’t know whether or not he was still alive. Zhou Xiaoxiao was anxious; she freed her legs and started running. It was fortunate that a familiar hill soon appeared in front of them, the three huge cedar trees delighted her more than ever.
Zhou Xiaoxiao quickly walked towards the cedar trees, then moved away some of the leaves that she had placed there to hide the cave.
An unimpressive cave appeared.
The entrance of the cave wasn’t big, but as they got inside, there was something astounding about how big and spacious it was.
The dent on the stone wall not far away from the entrance was actually the entrance to a natural stone room. The interior of that room was filled with resources that Zhou Xiaoxiao had accumulated such as logs, rice, leather, fur, etc.
