“I also see lots of tall buildings in the city when I watch TV; they’re really high! Eh? Won’t the wind blow them down?”
“Big brother, where’s your home? Do you have taro cake at home? My ah ma knows how to make the cake and it tastes yummy! It’s made of yam so it’s sweet and crumbly!”
The more she talked, the more excited she got. Suddenly, she hopped off the bed and ran out of the room. He did not know what she was up to this time.
Moments later, she returned with a plate while jumping excitedly.
The plate contained several pieces of golden cakes.
Her coarse eyebrows were raised slightly as she pushed the plate before him and smilingly asked, “These are the taro cakes made by ah ma, and they taste delicious! They’re freshly made; do you want to try one?”
As she spoke, she picked one up, shoved it into her mouth, and munched on the crumbly cake. The boy actually found it especially fragrant.
He hesitated for a moment, but because he had not eaten or drunk for two days, he was absolutely starving, so he picked one up and put it in his mouth without further ado.
It’s really sweet!
Sweet and sticky.
He munched the one in his mouth.
The girl got more excited when she saw him eating it. She cheerfully asked, “Is it yummy? Does it taste good?”
“Yes.” He politely nodded.
Although it was not his favorite flavor, he found it pretty tasty now that he was hungry.
She then sat by his side with a cake in hand and continued chattering nonstop while munching on the savory taro cake.
He would politely respond to her from time to time.
“Do you watch TV? We have one at home! My ah pa bought it from town last year!”
Lingling got up from the bed and went to switch on the TV. His lips twitched at the sight.
The TV was probably a secondhand buy.
The screen was only about a dozen inches in size, and when turned on, the image was grainy and monochrome in color.
This type of TV had become obsolete over a decade ago.
However, owning such a TV was already considered pretty modern in Anyang Village.
There were only a few TV channels. Only the afternoon news was available at this time, but despite that, the girl watched it with relish. To her, everything was very interesting as long as there was someone moving on the screen.
The man soon rushed back with bad news.
It turned out that the provision was closed by the time he reached it. He heard that the shop owner had gone to town to procure goods and would probably only be back the next day since the latter would have to make a to-and-fro trip, which was thirty miles each way, in addition to the time needed for procurement.
Thus, the man told him to rest for a night first. Once the boss got back, he would then make another phone call to his family.
Although Youyou was worried, he had no other choice.
“Sorry to trouble you,” he politely expressed.
The man’s face flushed with embarrassment. “Hey! Don’t say that; I’ll feel embarrassed! It’s good enough to have your forgiveness, boy! If not for the trap I set up, you wouldn’t have fallen into it!”
It turned out that he was still feeling guilty about it.
The boy comforted him. “It’s fine.”
It was no big deal since he was all right.
“I’m afraid that your parents will blame me if they know! Sigh… Boy, I really didn’t expect such a thing to happen; I’m feeling repentant about it, really…”
