After taking a bite, a sweet and tender taste immediately swept his taste buds. The half yacon was bitten by Hu Feng for only two or three times.
After eating, he unconsciously took two yacon fruits from the pit and went to the stream to wash them.
The two of them sat down by the stream and eat the yacon until their stomach was full.
When Hu Feng put away the dagger, he only remembered that he didn’t know what it was yet.
Bai Zhi seems to understand what he wanted to ask, so she took the initiative: “This snow lotus herb is also called yacon. You can eat it just like the sweet potatoes. So, rest assured.”
Hu Feng nodded his head and looked back at the few yacon fruits that were left. Then, he said: “I will dig a few more pit and bring them together.”
Bai Zhi busily said: “Don’t dig now, let’s dig when we’re about to go down the mountain. It will save us energy.”
Hu Feng thought about it too, so he said: “Then, let’s wash these few yacon fruits and eat them when we get hungry.” Hu Feng then excavated the remaining yacon fruits and washed them. After that, he returned the scattered soil into the pit. Refilling them like nothing happened. So that, when someone else came, no one will notice that they dug something from there.
Bai Zhi gave him a thumbs up: “Good, it will disguise the scene.”
Hu Feng didn’t make a sound, but his face was a bit reddish. His lips were also slightly curved with a smile.
After busily working, the two of them began to walk up the mountain again. From the foot of the mountain, except for the wild grass, they didn’t see even dead branches. They want to hunt for prey and pick up some good herbs, so obviously, they need to go to the deeper part of the mountain.
Hu Feng came more than once in this place. So, he took her to the familiar road. Halfway from the middle of the mountain, the road began to change completely.
The distance between trees became dense. Dead branches could be seen were everywhere. The dead leaves under the trees were thick. The light in the surroundings become darker and darker. As if from the ordinary mountain, it became a grim and gloomy forest.
Bai Zhi unconsciously leaned against Hu Feng’s side. Her small hand clutched to his clothes. Her eyes were looking everywhere.
Hu Feng never likes it when someone approaches him. He also hates it when someone touches him. So, he stretched out his hand, wanting to push Bai Zhi away, but when he saw her frightened, but excited eyes. He put down his hand. At this moment, he suddenly realized that it felt quite good when a little girl was sticking around him.
“Scared?” Hu Feng whispered.
Bai Zhi stubbornly shook her head: “I’m not scared. What’s scary about this place?”.”
When her words just fell, a sudden gush of strong wind passed through the forest. The wind swept away the leaves.
For Hu Feng, this event was very common in the forest, but for Bai Zhi who was never been to a forest before. It was like a demon was howling. Bai Zhi was very scared, so she simply hide in Hu Feng’s chest. She tightly closed her eyes and clasped her hand to Hu Feng’s clothes. Her brain had imagined the demon fox she had seen on the TV.
Hu Feng looked at the little girl who had thrown herself into his arms. She said that she was not afraid a bit earlier, but now, she was so scared like this? He really couldn’t understand what she was afraid of.
“Didn’t you just said you are not scared?”
Bai Zhi opened her eyes. Her big black eyes moved everywhere, but he only saw the quietness of the surroundings. In addition to Hu Feng’s steady heartbeat, it seems there was no other sound.
Bai Zhi swallowed her saliva, then took a deep breath. She lifted her chin and said: “Who, who said that I’m scared. I’m not scared! I just feared that the sands will go into my eyes. So, I hide.”
