VGAFH 27 part1

27 Helpless hunter part 1

     Not long later, they caught a lot.

     When Lian Fang Zhou looked up on the bank, she grinned and called Lian Ze: "Oh, it 's enough, enough! Anymore then we can't carry it. Let's come again tomorrow. And catch some more again!"

     Lian Ze thought about it, this forest still have plenty more mushrooms inside! Moreover, they didn't go elsewhere to explore. So when they look around, there will definitely be more mushrooms ... ... So, certainly need to come again.

     This time didn't need Lian Fang Zhou talk,. Lian Ze was no longer reluctant to come.

People tend to be afraid of the unknown. But once they witnessed, they will then know it's not like that. Lian Ze's mood at this time is just like that.

    "Sister, there's wild banana over there. I'll pick some leaves to these shrimp wrap!" Lian Ze pointed above the stream.

    Lian Fang Zhou followed where he pointed, it really has a cluster of four or five wild banana tree not far from in front, growing tall and small. But not too high, looks about two meters. Then said: "Then you quickly go. I'll pack up these shrimp!"

    For a moment, Lian Ze pluck the banana leaves. The two then wrapped up the green shrimp they caught. Lian Fang Zhou weighed, look like about two or three jin. Then grinned: "Unfortunately, if only we had a bucket, then it'll be great!"

    This far, it is clearly impossible.

    But the her now, have no qualification to be picky about living shrimp and dead shrimp. What's more, these mountain of wild shrimps, since it was brought from this far away, the taste should be good, right?

    "Bucket? How can we do that! So bulky!" Lian Ze was surprise and said with eyes wide open. He was shocked by what his sister said!

    Lian Fang Zhou froze. Only then remembered this era doesn't have light plastic buckets. At home were wooden barrels, aren't they so bulky!

Imagine carrying a wooden barrel going all this way. She could'nt stop herself from laughing. Laughed: "It's sister being muddled head! Look at what I'm saying"

    Lian Ze also laughed, at same time also relieved. Scratching his head, he grinned: "Sister scared me for a moment!"

    At this time, the sun just pass after noon. From the time, Sun Zhang Xing said when he come back is still a long time away. On the way here, he said not far in the east, there were a wild date forest, bear a lot of fruit. Near the north edge of date forest were yam vine. They can pick some dates and dig some yam to roast with fire to eat.

    The two took a break for a while, then went according to the direction Sun Zhang Xing pointed to.

    Sure enough, that wild date forest has around twenty to thirty trees of various size. Some still small, did not fruition. Those that bear fruit, the fruit completely encrusted on branches. A mass of dark red dates covered the whole trees.

    When they just arrived the forest edge, they smell a hint of fresh date fragance blowing by.

    "So many dates!" Lian Ze was joyful, busily pluck several of those big and red ones. And then ran over to hand over to Lian Fang Zhou. Raised a smile: "Sister!"

    Lian Fang Zhou smiled as she took them. Casually wiped it, then took a bite. Once enter mouth was crisp, sweet and juicy. She nodded her head toward him, smiled: "The taste is really good too!

"Let's pick some to bring back! Qing er and Che er will love them as well!" Lian Ze grinned as he said. No matter what kind of good thing, he never forget those two little ones.

    Naturally Lian Fang Zhou has no comments. Just smiled and said: "Today, take a bit less. Tomorrow we'll need to come anyway!"

    Lian Ze was stunned: "Tomorrow still come?"

    "Of course!" Lian Fang Zhou nodded without hesitation, said: "Since we already know the way. Tomorrow it's fine to come by ourselves. Don't need come this early. Pick mushrooms and then we can go back! Take advantage of these days good weather, and gather a lot of mushrooms, bring back home to sun-dry. Not only can we leave some to make some dishes for ourselves to eat, and also sell some for some money to help some family expenses!"

    The ten liang silver from dissolving engagement couldn't be help but be spent ah. Repairing the roof has already used up some. And the things need to buy are plentiful!

    "What Sister said is right!" Lian Ze nodded.

    This date tree full of fruit, so the weight cause the branches to be heavy. The siblings picked them to eat while talking. And soon they didn't feel hungry.
