Chapter 58: The Innocence and Happiness of Children

The so-called fun place the two little guys brought Gu Qingming to was a grain-sunning field in Stoneback Village.

When it came to harvest season, it was a place to dry rice and peanuts.

Usually, the barnyard wasn’t a fun place.
Other than a large empty space, there was nothing that attracted children.

But now, there were two piles of sand in the grain-sunning field.

Someone in the village was building a house.
The sand that needed to be used was temporarily piled here.

This sand had become a happy paradise for children, especially children under the age of six or seven.

They used the pile of sand for all kinds of fun.

They pretended to plant trees, build castles, dug mud ditches, and so on.

Gu Qingming glanced at the hot sun above.
The sky was bright and cloudless.

At this moment the children were frolicking in these sands, playing innocently and happily.

But she didn’t want to play here!

boxn ovel.

Oh, she seemed to have forgotten something.
She’d forgotten to apply sunscreen.

When one’s skin was tanned, it would become dark and thick.
It was ugly, especially on a June day like this.
Although it was morning, the light was still so strong.
If one was exposed to the sun for a while, their skin would probably be dark, let alone for a morning.

At the thought of this, Gu Qingming became a little anxious.

Girls were vain.

A fair-skinned woman looked even more beautiful.

But she had promised to play with the two little guys.
If she left like this, they would probably be disappointed.

Gu Qingming thought for a moment before squatting down and saying to the two little fellows, “Little Haohao, Little Xuanxuan, I have to go back now.
Can you play here yourselves?”

Shi Jiahao immediately said, “Aunt, shall I go back with you?”

However, his gaze drifted to the ditch he had just dug in the sand.

Little Junxuan nodded as well.
“That’s right, Aunt.
Grandma asked me and my brother to take care of you.
We’ll go back together!”

Gu Qingming shook her head and said, “There’s no need.
Don’t worry, Aunt is an adult and can take care of herself.
If you’d like to continue playing, you can stay and play here.
Aunt will come over in a while.”

Little Junxuan and Little Jiahao thought for a moment and nodded.
“All right, then.
But Aunt, do you remember the way? You won’t get lost, will you?”

Gu Qingming immediately said incredulously, “You two brats, aren’t you looking down on me too much? I’m an adult.
How can I get lost?”

The two little guys were relieved.

They nodded and said, “Yes, Auntie, go back now.
Come back later!”

For the children, the problem of the weather was not at all their concern.

Their days were about not being cold in winter and not being hot in summer.
They played as much as it was fun outside.

Gu Qingming looked at these innocent and cute children playing with the sand happily again.
For some reason, she felt especially relaxed and comfortable.

Gu Qingming walked home.

However, when she reached a fork in the road, she looked around and chose the path on the left.

But home was on the right!

It was impossible for Gu Qingming to admit that she was a little directionally challenged.

As she walked, she felt that something was wrong.
Why had she walked to a pond?

There were a lot of lotus flowers planted in the pond.

“What a beautiful lotus flower!” Gu Qingming praised.

She decided to sit here and admire the natural lotus flowers, not the artificially remodeled ones in the tourist area.

She found a spot where the vegetation was greener and drier and sat down.

Suddenly her ears twitched.

“Brother Feng, I found a very beautiful item that can definitely be sold for a high price!”
