Chapter 706: Xu Mei’s Stiff Neck
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
It was already dark when Xu Mei and Li Yang arrived at the enemy camp.
They had only brought one flashlight, so they had to use it sparingly.
They had no choice but to sleep to recover their strength.
However, there was no place to shelter them from the wind and rain. It was very dangerous to sleep on the ground.
If they were discovered by the enemy, they would be wiped out. Moreover, there were snakes, insects, rats, and ants on the ground in the forest, so Li Yang suggested that they sleep in the trees.
Li Yang had lived in the mountains since he was a child. He often went up the trees to pick out birds’ eggs. When he was a child, he went hunting in the mountains with his uncle and often slept in the trees.
Li Yang was very familiar with sleeping on the trees.
However, this matter really made things difficult for Xu Mei.
Xu Mei was a child who grew up on the prairie. It was not difficult for her to ride horses and hunt with a shotgun. However, climbing a tree made it difficult for this child who grew up on the grassland.
The grassland stretched as far as the eye could see. Not to mention trees, even lower shrubs were difficult to grow.
Xu Mei climbed the tree like a child who had just grown up. Her four limbs were not coordinated at all.
Li Yang could only help her climb the tree from below. The sky was dark and the light was weak. Li Yang’s hand unconsciously touched Xu Mei’s buttocks.
Xu Mei had always hated this man who had a good impression of her. Now that she felt that she had been taken advantage of, she was even more annoyed.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry! I didn’t do it on purpose!”
Li Yang was also a little shy and did not dare to look up at Xu Mei again.
“Alright, stop dawdling and quickly settle down.”
Li Yang continued to drag Xu Mei up the tree.
However, the branches were too short, and Xu Mei did not dare to climb up with all her strength.
“Ah, the branches are broken.”
Xu Mei suddenly exclaimed. The broken branches slid down due to the force of gravity, and the sharp cut cut cut Xu Mei’s face.
This made Xu Mei even angrier!
Li Yang was scared out of his wits and quickly held her back, but this action made Xu Mei angry again.
“I told you not to touch there! I even suspect that you did it on purpose!”
Li Yang’s hand position became very awkward. For a moment, he did not know whether to extend it or pull it back.
Xu Mei grabbed a relatively thick branch and used the strength of her upper arm to pull herself between two thick branches.
“Don’t touch me anymore! Go find another tree and climb up!”
“Okay, okay, don’t be angry. I was wrong, I was wrong…”
Li Yang’s apologetic voice made Xu Mei even more frustrated. She did not understand why a man would be so noisy.
Zhou Lin was different from these men. He was forever like a snow lotus on a high mountain, noble and serene. People could only look at him from afar but did not dare to approach him.
Xu Mei pushed him away, and Li Yang almost fell to the ground.
Fortunately, Li Yang’s upper body strength was relatively strong. He grabbed the tree trunk and groped bit by bit before descending to the ground.
The next day, at dawn…
Xu Mei opened her eyes. She felt that her head was very heavy. She rubbed her aching forehead and looked at the unfamiliar environment in front of her.
Unfortunately, Xu Mei had slept in the wrong position. It would be very painful if her head was straight, but for a sniper, it was simply impossible to shoot accurately with his head tilted all the time.
“It’s all your fault. You insisted on living on the tree. What should we do now?”
Xu Mei was on the verge of breaking down. Nothing good had happened to her since she started partnering with Li Yang. Now, she was even sleeping on the tree.
This time, she really did not know how to clean up the mess.
“Why don’t I help you massage it? I learned a set of techniques to treat aches in my hometown. It might be helpful for your current situation!” Li Yang suggested.
No matter what, he had to think of a way to pull Xu Mei down from the tree. Otherwise, this stalemate would not be a solution.
As Li Yang spoke, he had already walked up to Xu Mei.
Seeing Li Yang approaching, Xu Mei’s heart suddenly filled with endless disgust. Li Yang had been running around day and night, causing his body to be covered in sweat. The night wind had taken away the beads of sweat, but it did not take away the smell of sweat on his body.
Li Yang’s body odor was very strong. The moment he got close to Xu Mei, a strong sour smell made Xu Mei want to die on the spot.
