Chapter 53: Going to the Field

A tall girl with a ponytail was walking in the watermelon field.

Looking up, she saw a large patch of green watermelon vines that were very thick.
The vine leaves that were like eagle claws were lush.
There were very obvious small ridges on them and very dense white soft fur.
It was so pleasing.

Each round green watermelon was covered under the watermelon leaves or covered in hay.
They looked so cute and pleasant.

She really wanted to go to the field to pick one and carry it home.

This was the first time she had seen watermelons growing in the fields.
She was a little excited.

Gu Qingming was about to get off the ground and personally experience the fun of picking watermelons when her grandmother chased after her and shouted, “Darling, be careful.
It’s slippery here.
Don’t slide down.”

Gu Qingming looked around her with an excited expression.

She asked, “Grandma, is this what watermelons in the fields look like?”

Without waiting for her grandmother to respond, Shi Junxuan, who was beside Gu Qingming, asked curiously, “Aunt, don’t you know watermelons?”

Shi Jiahao, who was standing on the other side, also asked curiously, “Aunt, you’ve already grown up, but you’ve never seen a watermelon?”

Then, he gave Gu Qingming a look of pity.

boxn ovel.

Gu Qingming was dumbfounded.

Shi Junxuan immediately said, “Aunt, didn’t you eat watermelons in the past?”

He also looked at her with a pitiful and sympathetic expression.

“Hehe…” Gu Qingming laughed dryly and said, “Aunt has eaten watermelons before, but I’ve never seen watermelons growing in the fields.
This is the first time I’ve seen our sweet watermelons in the fields today.
So they are cultivated like this.”

In the past, when her family came to her grandmother’s house, they would do so at the end of the year.
At that time, there was nothing in the fields.
Even the weeds were withered.

“Oh, I see.” The two little turnip heads nodded as if they understood.
This was despite the fact that they did not understand why it was the first time her aunt had seen watermelons in the fields,

After all, the kids had grown up seeing these watermelon fields.

Grandma looked at the three of them and immediately felt a little amused.

Grandma smiled and explained, “Your aunt lives in a big city.
There are no watermelon fields there, so it’s normal that your aunt hasn’t seen a watermelon field.
Unlike you, who are like wild monkeys running around the field at such a young age.”

Shi Junxuan and Shi Jiahao asked curiously, “Great-grandmother, why aren’t there watermelon fields in the big city where Aunt lives? Don’t people in big cities eat watermelons?”

Grandma was speechless.
Children were really curious.

“Yes, people in big cities eat watermelons too,” Gu Qingming explained.
“It’s just that when they wish to eat watermelons, they either buy them on the streets or go to the mall to buy them.
They won’t plant them themselves.”

“Oh!” The two little turnip heads nodded as if they understood.

“Alright, you’re still young.
No matter how much I tell you, you won’t understand.” Grandma smiled and said, “When you grow up, you’ll naturally understand.”

At this point, she glanced at the two children and instructed, “Don’t get too close to me.
Don’t trip me.
Don’t always cause trouble for me.”

“Okay, got it!” The two children nodded and replied sensibly.

Gu Qingming touched the soft hair of one of the boys with one hand and smiled.
“Grandma, the two children are very sensible.
They won’t cause any trouble.”

Grandma shook her head and said with a smile, “Three or four-year-old children are in their ignorant period.
No matter how sensible they are, there will be times when they are mischievous.
When they are mischievous, they don’t care about anything.
Don’t be fooled by how obedient and sensible these two little monkeys are in front of you.
With the rest of us, they’re just short of going up the wall to expose the tiles.”

“Haha, are they that naughty?” Gu Qingming was a little surprised.
“They’re clearly so obedient and cute, right, Little Junxuan, Little Jiahao?”

The two children nodded in unison.
“Yes, yes, we’re both very obedient.
We’re both good babies.”

Grandma was speechless.

“Haha…” Gu Qingming was really overjoyed.

The children were really cute!

As she thought about it, she couldn’t help but touch her belly.

She wondered if her child would be as cute and naive after he was born.

She was looking forward to it more and more now.

After laughing for a moment, Gu Qingming said to her grandmother, “Grandma, go ahead.
I want to go to the fields and take a look!”

Grandma looked at her outfit and said hesitantly, “You want to go to the fields? I’ll go back and get you a pair of your third sister-in-law’s rain boots.
There are many mosquitoes in the fields.
You’re thin and tender.
These mosquitoes here would like you very much.”

Gu Qingming was dumbfounded.

She looked at the branded flat sandals she was wearing and saw a small black worm crawling under a watermelon leaf in the ditch.
She immediately had goosebumps all over her body, as if something was biting her body, and her scalp was numb.

The chances of seeing insects since she was young could be counted on one hand.

Every time she saw a worm, she felt afraid.

It was probably impossible for her to overcome her fear of bugs and creepy crawlies at once.

However, she would have to stay at her grandmother’s house for a long time.
In the countryside, there would definitely be many mosquitoes.

She had to slowly get used to it.
