427 The Environment Is Too Bad, There Are Actually No Small Fish, Shrimp, and Crabs!
Jiang Xiaoran nodded. “Listen to this lady!”
Every one passed through the long corridor and passed by gorgeously decorated houses.
However, perhaps because no one lived there.
No matter how good-looking the rooms were, they were all pitch-black when looked in from the window.
Gu Nuo’er focused her attention and probed her surroundings, but she didn’t find anything amiss.
Soon, Butler Wu brought them to the side of the small Lingyin Waterfall.
Before they could get close, they heard the gentle sound of flowing water.
The three well-arranged white-walled rooms were just a little in front of the waterfall.
This place was covered in greenery and a bridge made of limestone was built over the water. The scene looked extremely poetic and elegant.
At night, it was a different kind of comfort to be able to sleep with the sound of water.
When Gu Nuo’er saw that the environment was quiet, she immediately felt cheerful and threw her doubts to the back of her mind.
She ran into one of the rooms.
The room was spacious and bright, but it felt a little damp. Perhaps it was because it was too close to the waterfall.
However, the size inside was very wide.
After entering, they first saw the main hall. Then, they saw a wide table placed in the middle with the stationeries placed on it.
The racks were placed by the wall in rows. There were ink paintings hung above them, and the decorations in the room were very simple and elegant.
After walking around a screen with the painting of mountains and rivers, they could see the bedroom.
The wide engraved wooden bed made from yellow rosewood was covered with a red gauze curtain, giving off a faint charm.
In the corner of the room, there was a wide celadon fish tank.
Gu Nuo’er stuck her head in happily.
There wasn’t a single small fish inside.
There were only two pieces of duckweed floating on the water.
Hmph, it was a waste not to raise small fish when there was a fish tank!
Gu Nuo’er and Xie Yinxiang stayed in the middle room. Ye Siming went to the one on the left while Jiang Xiaoran went to the one on the right.
After Butler Wu settled everyone down, he cupped his hands and said with a smile, “It’s almost evening. I’ll go and instruct the chef to cook. The food will all be mountain delicacies. They might not be as sumptuous as the dishes at the young masters and young ladies’ houses, but they taste delicious.
“Please rest for a while. I’ll arrange for someone to call you over later.”
After Butler Wu left, Gu Nuo’er took Xie Yinxiang’s hand and walked around the house to the small waterfall at the back.
She wanted to catch two small fish or a small crab and put them in the water vat.
However, after she and Xie Yinxiang arrived at the small waterfall, the two of them walked along the stones by the stream for a long time, but they didn’t find a single small fish.
Gu Nuo’er looked around for a long time with her butt sticking out. She even reached out her small hand to move the stones but couldn’t find a single small crab.
The child looked dispirited.
She shook the water droplets off her hands. “Isn’t the environment here too bad? There aren’t any small fish, shrimps, or crabs!”
Xie Yinxiang covered her mouth and comforted her with a smile. “There might be some upstream. After dinner, I’ll accompany you to the top of the waterfall to take a look.”
“Mmm!” Gu Nuo’er nodded obediently.
Xie Yinxiang held Gu Nuo’er’s hand and prepared to return the way they came.
At this moment, a red shadow suddenly flashed across the dense forest that was separated from Gu Nuo’er and the others by a stream.
Gu Nuo’er seemed to have noticed something and stopped in her tracks, turning around.
The summer light shone on the small waterfall. Water droplets shone and bloomed brilliantly when they landed on the stones.
There seemed to be nothing amiss.
Gu Nuo’er shook her head.
Was it an illusion?
After they left, a red figure quietly revealed half of her face from behind the tree.
It opened its mouth slightly, revealing a big toothless mouth.
It seemed to be smiling, looking even more ferocious.
The child who passed by just now…
The smell on her body was really sweet and delicious.
