Fall in Love with Mr.Nian Slowly - Chapter 1729
Chapter 1729: She Felt Like Crying
After he finished speaking, he silently pulled down the zipper of his jacket.
Nian Xi instantly understood everything. She silently rolled her eyes at him. How had he treated her that night in Lhasa? Was she going to give it to him if he wanted it now?
Did he think she, Nian Xi would easily give in?
Moreover, it was such cold weather, and they were in a tent. It was simply freezing.
“It’s cold.” Nian Xi’s body shrank into the quilt with a look of resistance on her face.
Jiang Yuning was anxious. “It will not freeze much when the two of us are together. We can keep each other warm, and we won’t get out of our sleeping bags. Xixi, come on. We’ll have to sleep in the temple tomorrow and the day after. We can’t…”
After saying that, Nian Xi turned her back towards Jiang Yuning.
Jiang Yuning pouted. In the end, he could only lie down and chant Amitabha silently.
The next day, both of them began to stroll around the mountain.
Because they had to spend the night on the mountain to watch the stars, Jiang Yuning still had to carry his telescope and some food on his back. His luggage was quite heavy.
Nian Xi’s physical strength was rather good. But after walking through the Zhire Temple, the altitude was getting higher and higher. She was getting a little tired. When she looked back, Jiang Yuning was somehow left behind. He was holding a climbing stick in his hand and was panting.
Nian Xi stopped for a while and waited for him to approach her. Jiang Yuning was walking unsteadily, and he couldn’t speak clearly. “Xixi… I’m so tired… I’m so tired… I wasn’t this tired the last time I came here…”
After saying that, he sat down on the roadside to rest.
Nian Xi was speechless. He was young when he last came here, okay? How could his strength be compared to before? “Fortunately, I make you go to the gym to exercise recently, or else you wouldn’t be able to hold on from the foot of the mountain.”
“Yes, yes…” Jiang Yuning panted as he drank the Red Bull. “I still… I still need to work out. Staying in the lab always and not exercising is… a problem.”
“Rest for a while,” Nian Xi comforted him.
Ten minutes later, both of them went on again. After reaching an altitude of five thousand meters, Jiang Yuning almost needed to rest every few steps. Nian Xi was not much better either. Fortunately, both of them finally found a temple to rest, and got a bed when it was dark.
At night, they slept in the bunk beds. Moreover, it was a room where men and women were separated. It was very simple and crude. When they turned over, the bed made a creaking sound.
However, they could not care too much at that moment. It was already good enough to have a place to rest.
There were seven people in Nian Xi’s room. Three of them were pilgrims from India. The other one was a girl from Sichuan. Her face was yellowish and dark, which made her look old.
Nian Xi was so scared that she hurriedly took out a mirror to look at her face. She didn’t notice it before, but now she suddenly realized that her face had been yellowish black in just these few days. Her lips and cheeks were dry, and she was having a rosy cheek due to the plateau.
She thought of Xiao Si, who was sent to the great northwest by Nian Junting a few years ago. Back then, he looked like he had been through a lot.
She felt despair. But when she saw the devout faces of the Indians, she solemnly told herself that pilgrims were sacred and that she shouldn’t care about her appearance at this time.
However, when she woke up the next morning and saw Jiang Yuning, her heart was broken. She was dizzy from the climb the day before and did not notice it. Her once handsome-looking husband was gone.
Her hubby, who had been slightly tanned in Samoa, was now even darker. His face was as dry as a terraced field.
She looked at him and felt like crying.
“Xixi, what’s wrong?” Jiang Yuning was confused by her sad gaze.
