On the other hand, Xu Beishen was bringing Jin Mingchen and the rebellious child on the route along the river bank. However, because of the humidity caused by the presence of water around them, the three of them were also encountering their share of obstacles along the way.
Their feet were soaking wet and this made their steps twice as heavy as a regular step. Moreover, it was much more difficult to walk on wet soil, because not only did it make the path more slippery, but their feet would sometimes get stuck in it.
The most important point was that it was easier to provoke wild animals and mosquitoes when they were near a water source.
Xu Beishen walked through the river bank easily, but the poor cameraman and crew who were following after them had a very difficult time keeping up with them. This was as the camera and all the other equipment that they had to carry along with them were already heavy on their own. Therefore, the cameraman and the crew would sometimes get their feet stuck in the wet soil and have a difficult time pulling their feet out while regaining their balance to ensure that the camera and equipment were all protected.
In the dark night, there was all of a sudden a loud and high-pitched scream heard. Jin Mingchen had slipped on the wet soil and fallen into the river. He was soaking wet at this time.
Xu Beishen merely glanced back at Jin Mingchen and yelled indifferently, &x201C;Keep up.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen finally lost his temper and yelled back at Xu Beishen. &x201C;If you want to keep going, you can go on your own. I am not going with you.&x201D;
&x201C;Really incompetent.&x201D; After speaking, Xu Beishen did not even offer to help Jin Mingchen, but she continued moving forward without him instead.
When they saw what had just happened, the cameraman and production crew stepped forward and helped to pull Jin Mingchen out of the river. They then asked him, &x201C;So, would you like to give up? As long as you announce that you are giving up, your entire group will automatically fail the mission.&x201D;
Jin Mingchen shook his head as soon as he heard the words &x2018;give up&x2019;. &x201C;Although I really hate her right now, I do not want to lose just like this. I will go and look for Sister Yuning now.&x201D;
This was because Jin Mingchen knew deep down that Jiang Yuning would definitely take care and look out for him.
So, that was what happened. Xu Beishen&x2019;s group separated almost as soon as they started out on their mission.
The cameraman and production crew of the second group also had no choice but to split up into two separate teams. One of the teams continued following Xu Beishen, whereas the other team followed after Jin Mingchen.
&x201C;It really isn&x2019;t easy at all.&x201D;
&x201C;Do you think that it would be comfortable to go through the jungle then?&x201D; the cameraman who was set to follow Jin Mingchen replied helplessly as he comforted his companions. &x201C;Just wait a little longer. This boy is very scared of ghosts. All we will be hearing in a little while more is his endless screaming.&x201D;
However, at this time, Jin Mingchen was too angry and frustrated to understand the severity of the decision he had just made. He only realized the consequences of his action after his anger seemed to have dissipated completely.
As they were trekking through the jungle, Jin Mingchen held his hands tightly together. He could instantly feel the goose bumps rising on his arms. He quickly turned around and asked the cameraman, &x201C;Brother, don&x2019;t you think that it is very cold and chilly around here?&x201D;
&x201C;Brother, I am not feeling cold. I just hope that you will stop running around aimlessly.&x201D;
&x201C;Oh my god! There&x2019;s a ghost!&x201D; As soon as the cameraman spoke, Jin Mingchen started screaming and running again.
The cameraman and production crew were dumbfounded.
Could they ask for a refund?
It was really difficult to make money nowadays.
Jin Mingchen, stop running away!
It could be proven that Jin Mingchen&x2019;s scream was really at an ultimate level. His screaming and aimless running around the jungle eventually caught the attention of the other members of group one who were making their way through the jungle.
After a short while, one of the staff members from the production crew made his way up to Jiang Yuning and said, &x201C;Sister Yuning, well&x2026;Jin Mingchen from group two has decided to come and look for you.&x201D;
Jiang Yuning looked at the staff member with an expression on her face that suggested she had already expected it.
&x201C;I already heard him screaming from a long way back.&x201D;
The production team was worried that something bad might really happen to Jin Mingchen if they left him alone. Therefore, they had decided to lead him to Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group.
Jiang Yuning looked at the boy who had leaves and spider webs all over his head and she could not help but laugh out loud. &x201C;Do you know that you are actually the scariest ghost in this jungle right now?&x201D;
&x201C;Stop laughing at me. I am already scared to death.&x201D;
&x201C;Aren&x2019;t you afraid that you will run into a big giant spider?&x201D;
&x201C;Even if I die, I want to die with all of you. I just fell into the river and the rich young lady from the Xu family did not care about me at all. She was so cold and indifferent towards me,&x201D; Jin Mingchen whined. &x201C;Please let me follow your group. I promise that I will not give you guys any trouble.&x201D;
&x201C;We will guide you out of the jungle and once you reach safety, you can meet up with your group leader and follow her lead once again, okay?&x201D; Jiang Yuning offered him a compromise.
&x201C;Okay!&x201D; At this time, Jin Mingchen immediately took the initiative to carry Jiang Yuning&x2019;s backpack for her.
The production crew watched as Jin Mingchen suddenly turned into an obedient little lamb and they finally heaved a huge sigh of relief.
Well, since they were recording a live program out in the wild, it was only normal for them to encounter a few strange and unexpected situations.
Jin Mingchen quietly followed Jiang Yuning&x2019;s group as they made their way through the jungle and it was at this time when he suddenly realized how their group was not only very well-informed and organized, but also very warm and caring towards one another.
They would converse with one another, make jokes and laugh together, and encourage and push one another to do better. Without knowing it, two hours had already flown by like the wind.
At this time, Jiang Yuning found a flat landscape that would be a suitable resting ground for them. She turned around and informed her group members, &x201C;I think it is time for us to take a break and replenish our strength. Tong Tong should also rest for a little while now.&x201D;
&x201C;Alright then,&x201D; Brother Zhuang replied. He was also tired at this point.
&x201C;I will find some wood for us to start a fire. We need to help Mingchen dry his clothes.&x201D;
&x201C;Sobs. Sobs. Sister Yuning, you really are the best. You are even better than my own biological sister.&x201D;
&x201C;I do not want to be your sister. If you want to, you can call me your father instead!&x201D; Jiang Yuning replied as she laughed.
Jin Mingchen stood up immediately and followed after Jiang Yuning as she went to gather some wood to start a fire.
The production crew also took advantage of this opportunity to interview and obtain the opinions of the other group members about Jiang Yuning as soon as she walked away. After all, one of the main focus of the program was to discover the inner opinions and feelings that the group members had about one another after working together in an attempt to complete their mission.
About twenty-five minutes later, Jiang Yuning and Jin Mingchen returned to their camp with a stack of firewood and dead branches in their hands. Jiang Yuning quickly got to work and very soon, there was a warm bonfire to keep them warm in the jungle.
&x201C;Sister Yuning, your feet&x2026;are you injured?&x201D; Jin Mingchen suddenly noticed the wounds and cuts on Jiang Yuning&x2019;s ankle as he sat in front of the bonfire to dry his clothes. He looked at Jiang Yuning with a curious expression on his face and asked, &x201C;Why do you have so many cuts on your ankle? Why are you still participating in the program with your injuries?&x201D;
&x201C;Well, this is because I went camping on the mountains two days ago because I wanted to adapt to the environment out here in the wild,&x201D; Jiang Yuning casually replied.
The three of them were stunned and surprised when they heard what she had just said. They had never expected a celebrity to take the recording of this variety program so seriously and even go out to the field in advance to make the necessary preparations before joining the program.
&x201C;It is no wonder you have been able to manage the stress and handle all difficulties that we have faced in the jungle so easily,&x201D; Brother Zhuang replied as he nodded his head at Jiang Yuning in approval.
&x201C;Production team, would this be considered cheating then?&x201D; Jiang Yuning asked as she turned around to look at the production team standing behind them.
The production team was also stunned.
If they were to declare that Jiang Yuning had cheated, this would also mean that all the experts in each group were cheating.
This was because this was their field of expertise and they definitely had an advantage over the other guests.
Jiang Yuning had unexpectedly turned out to be one of the most skilful and professional guests on the program. The audience would probably be unable to tell if she was an expert or a celebrity.
&x201C;Isn&x2019;t your ankle hurting?&x201D;
Jiang Yuning thought about the two days that she had spent up on the mountains with Ku Jie and Lu Jingzhi and all she could feel was overwhelming happiness. She smiled before she replied, &x201C;Even if I am in pain, I have to guide you out of the jungle. If I leave you alone for even a minute, you might even scare all the ghosts away!&x201D;
&x201C;Sister Yuning, I want to form a love line1 with you,&x201D; Jin Mingchen said as he took the opportunity to hold onto Jiang Yuning&x2019;s arm.
&x201C;Why would you want to torture me like that? Your clothes are almost dry, let&x2019;s start moving now,&x201D; Jiang Yuning said as she passed Jin Mingchen&x2019;s clothes to him.
The four of them quickly extinguished the fire and carried their backpacks and belongings before they started moving forward again.
Although they were moving very slowly, they were all very determined and persistent. It was clear that the mission was also targeted to test their endurance and patience.
The production crew initially felt that the route that the first group had chosen to take was the most dangerous one. However, in the end, this group had the most people who were taking this route with them!
Jiang Yuning was really amazing!
