Lu Jingzhi frowned before he grabbed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s cell phone to personally have a look at it. He finally calmed down after he saw that Jiang Yuning was actually looking at him all along.
&x201C;Don&x2019;t you think that he is very handsome?&x201D; Jiang Yuning was very satisfied because Lu Jingzhi was so nervous about who she was looking at. &x201C;I have already had a crush on him since twelve years ago. You could say that I am his hardcore fan.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi put the cell phone down before he sat down on the sofa next to Jiang Yuning. He rubbed his nose against hers before he then asked, &x201C;Does it make you happy to test me like this?&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi then lifted Jiang Yuning off the sofa and carried her in his arms before he instructed Sister Liang, &x201C;You can get off work now.&x201D;
&x201C;I will let you have a taste of how it feels like to be punished by me now.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning&x2019;s mind was suddenly filled with all sorts of different thoughts. She was excited when she thought about how she could have more videos of second brother and how no one else in the world would ever have the opportunity to get that kind of videos.
After taking a quick shower, Lu Jingzhi sat on the bed and saw that Jiang Yuning was very happy as she was looking through her new videos collection. He could not help but smile as he stared at her. After a short while, he asked her, &x201C;What is going on with the news that is circulating around the internet?&x201D;
&x201C;The production team is probably doing that to create hype and publicity for the upcoming program,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she sat with her legs crossed in front of Lu Jingzhi. She was busy fixing the pictures of Lu Jingzhi and she could not be bothered about the news on the internet.
&x201C;There are so many blind people.&x201D;
He could not believe that Xu Beishen had the courage to challenge his wife. He could not even remember how Xu Beishen looked like. How could she be so confident?
In the past, people used to make comparisons between Jiang Yuning and Huo Yuxi. However, Jiang Yuning won hands down as soon as she put on the traditional Chinese outfit.
No one in the entertainment industry dared to challenge Jiang Yuning in this aspect.
Xu Beishen was really thick skinned.
When Jiang Yuning heard Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s sentence, she laughed out loud. She held Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s perfect face in her hands before she said, &x201C;I know that I will definitely be the most beautiful person to you. So, I will never take those comparisons to heart. Moreover, you have to believe that I will be well-liked and accepted everywhere I go. That is how you know that a person has a genuinely charming personality.&x201D;
Lu Jingzhi patted her gently on her head before he took the cell phone from her hand. &x201C;It is time for you to go to bed. Aren&x2019;t you going camping with Muyang tomorrow?&x201D;
&x201C;I just want to look a little longer&x2026;&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she tried to grab her cell phone back from Lu Jingzhi.
Lu Jingzhi refused to give her the cell phone and he whispered in her ear, &x201C;Your idol is right before you now. So, why do you want to look at him through the phone?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning suddenly felt goosebumps all over her body as soon as Lu Jingzhi spoke.
The beautiful and glowing red sun rose over the sea early the next morning.
Ku Jie was wearing a windbreaker and he had already parked his off-road vehicle before he entered the villa to enjoy the breakfast that Sister Liang had prepared for him. After he was done with breakfast, he waited for Jiang Yuning downstairs in the living room.
At seven o&x2019;clock, Jiang Yuning walked out of the bedroom and climbed down the stairs, also dressed in a windbreaker. Lu Jingzhi followed behind with a calm expression on his face.
&x201C;Are you really willing to part with her for two days and one night?&x201D; Ku Jie intentionally asked Lu Jingzhi to provoke him.
&x201C;I am reluctant to, but I owe it to her,&x201D; Lu Jingzhi replied in a calm manner. &x201C;I wish that I could bring her camping too, and to bring her to see the mountains and rivers. I wish that I could accompany her to watch the sunrise and sunset, but I know that I will not be able to do that for the time being. You are the only one who can do that for her on my behalf.&x201D;
Ku Jie did not reply and he was silent after listening to Lu Jingzhi&x2019;s answer.
Why did he feel as though he had lost?
&x201C;Second brother, I will definitely record videos of the beautiful scenery and whenever I encounter something interesting, I will definitely share it with you,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she hugged her man. &x201C;I will miss you very much.&x201D;
Ku Jie was dumbstruck.
What the heck. They were being so mushy early in the morning.
Very soon, both brother and sister set off for their expedition into the mountain. In an attempt to help Jiang Yuning learn and gain more survival skills and instinct to survive in the wild, Ku Jie had spoken to someone on the phone till late the previous night.
Ku Jie had even discussed the exact location that they would be camping at with Lu Jingzhi.
&x201C;I have seen the news splattered all over the internet. Do not take all the articles to heart. They may be experts from various fields and industries, but I am certain that these are mere paper qualifications. I can guarantee you that the guests from the expert group in the variety show are all academicians who do not have any experience or practical knowledge to survive in the wild&x2026;&x201D;
Ku Jie could not help but to start assuring and comforting Jiang Yuning as soon as they start hiking up the mountain.
&x201C;How dare they comment that my sister will not know how to survive in the wild? Who gave them that courage?&x201D;
&x201C;Brother, why are you behaving exactly the same way as second brother?&x201D;
&x201C;Who do you think we are doing this for? We even spoke over the phone last night to plan everything out for you. Do you think that we are both doing this to hurt you?&x201D; Ku Jie could not help but glare at Jiang Yuning as he replied.
&x201C;Was second brother also involved in planning this trip?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked, extremely surprised.
&x201C;Do you really not know who your man is and what he does, or are you just pretending to be stupid?&x201D; Ku Jie asked in a dissatisfied tone.
&x201C;I&x2026;haven&x2019;t really asked about his work before,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she scratched her head. &x201C;I have always thought of second brother&x2019;s identity and job as very secretive and confidential. That is why I have never asked him about it before.&x201D;
&x201C;Who says that I am referring to what he does for a living now? Don&x2019;t you know that Lu Jingzhi had once worked in the army and he had only been selected for his current post and job after he had completed his military service?&x201D; Ku Jie replied indifferently. &x201C;Is he your husband or mine?&x201D;
&x201C;I have always been worried that I would put him in an awkward and difficult position. I do not want to cause any problems for him, and that is why I have never asked him about his work,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at Ku Jie. &x201C;I will also admit truthfully that I have always deliberately avoided this question because I only have a high school diploma. Do you think that I would be able to feel as though I deserve to be with someone like second brother if we were to compare our qualifications?&x201D;
After listening to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s words, Ku Jie reached out his hand and patted Jiang Yuning gently on her head to comfort her. &x201C;That is not your fault.&x201D;
The siblings then subsequently continued their hike and began their expedition into the wild.
&x201C;The most important thing when you are out in the wild is to learn how to survive and live. When you are in the mountains and do not have any supplies on you, you will have to learn how to use the terrains and natural resources to locate the rivers, and how to find food and water for yourself.&x201D;
&x201C;I will try to teach you some of the most basic survivals skills that you should know during the two days that we are up in the mountain. You must learn and take note of everything that I tell you and teach you. I will not repeat myself as we are short on time.&x201D;
Ku Jie was being very strict and he was giving instructions to Jiang Yuning very seriously.
&x201C;Both of us will go up the mountain without any supplies at all.&x201D;
&x201C;The only thing that I have brought along with me is a notebook and a pen,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she looked at Ku Jie earnestly.
The sun started rising up the mountain as the two of them continued their hike. However, after just a few steps, Ku Jie began teaching Jiang Yuning. &x201C;This plant is called a dicranopteris linearis. It is a type of fern that can be very commonly found in the woods. Although it looks like any other regular fern, you should not underestimate its abilities. When you are injured, bleeding, or suffering from any burns, you can use this plant to stop the bleeding on your wound.&x201D;
Ku Jie stood under a tree and pointed at one of the plants as he explained its functions to Jiang Yuning in a very comprehensive manner.
&x201C;I know this. I have learned about it previously when I was learning Chinese medicine from Grandpa Tan,&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she examined the plant to remember how it looked like.
Ku Jie nodded his head before he kept walking forward. When he saw a plastic bottle on the ground, he quickly picked it up.
&x201C;Pay attention to the things that are around you. You might sometimes be able to find something useful that you can use at a later time. When we arrive at our camping site, I will teach you how to use this plastic bottle to filter your water and obtain clean drinking water.&x201D;
After listening to Ku Jie&x2019;s explanation, Jiang Yuning suddenly felt that it was indeed very interesting to be out in the wild where they had to make use of the natural resources available to survive. She finally understood why some people enjoyed going on trips deep into the mountains or desert islands. This was because exploration and going on adventures were basic human instincts.
