Also, when the man brought him here, his bloody state attracted many villagers’ attention. Some gifted their old clothes out of pity for him.
“How did you get into that forest, boy? There’re plenty of wild beasts there; it’s a very dangerous place. Where do you live? How did you come here?”
The man fired a bunch of questions at him.
From Youyou’s expensive getup and fair skin, he could tell that he was a classic city boy and not a villager.
Girls were vain in general. Growing up in the village, his daughter’s skin was dark and rough. Hence, she was utterly envious of the boy’s handsome looks and fair skin.
During his unconscious state, she would lie at his bedside and watch him with interest. She would pick up his hands to look at them for a while, then play with his eyelashes the next moment. She did not seem to get bored at all.
The teen dramas shown on TV made the little girl yearn to live in the city. Her dream was to get into the city’s college and lived a city life when she grew up.
She was very fond of the boy since her first sight of him. Despite her young age where she still did not know about love, she was shy in front of him!
He could sense the family’s warm-heartedness and friendliness toward him. Being down-to-earth and genuine, they did not seem to harbor any ill intentions toward him. Besides, his wounds were all cleaned up, so he had quite a favorable impression of this man before him.
Still, he did not mention much about his identity when asked. He only told him that he lived in the city.
When the man asked him for his parents’ number so that he could give them a call and send him home, Youyou gave him Li Hanlin’s.
He then instructed his daughter to stay at home and look after their guest while he went out to make a call.
As the village was in a very remote area, communication was not advanced here.
Not every household had such advanced and luxurious item like a smartphone or even a landline. When they wanted to make a call, they would have to go to the village’s small provision shop to use the public phone. It was a cost-effective personal handy-phone system (PHS), whereby the call would last several minutes for a yuan.
Whenever the villagers needed to make a call, they would head down to the provision shop. It was very convenient for them.
The neighboring village was located quite far, but because of the carefree lifestyle here, they rarely left the village.
The little girl went by the name Lingling; her full name was Zhao Linghua. The six-year-old attended a private primary school in the village.
These were what she had told Youyou.
Seeing that the boy was awake, she immediately started a conversation with him and chattered endlessly.
The boy had no energy to pay attention to her, though. He quietly lay in bed as he waited for the man to contact his subordinate about fetching him.
His indifference neither bothered her nor made her feel lonely. Rather, she continued chattering happily and enthusiastically.
This was inevitable, of course.
Growing up in the village, she rarely saw children from the city; naturally, she was curious!
“Big brother, is the moon in the city big and round?
“I really envy the people living in the city! I always see on TV that they are dressed beautifully! My clothes aren’t nice, though. They’re made by ah pa. Sigh…”
