Adopting and Raising the Male Lead and the Villain - Chapter 241
Li Jinyuan casually set the water down, then turned to take out the biscuits in Huo Chengming’s jacket. He tore open the packaging and said, “One biscuit will be enough to stop your hunger. Huanhuan, eat one first and after a few hours, we’ll definitely be eating fresh and hot food in a safe place.”
As he spoke, he delivered a piece to Zhong Yuhuan’s mouth.
Huo Chengming: “…”
It really is shameless to present Budhha with borrowed flowers*.
*Idiom meaning to offer favors at the expense of another
It was true that today was physically taxing and frightening, so it was pretty comfortable to just open her mouth and not move.
Zhong Yuhuan opened her mouth and took two bites of the hardtack. It tasted full of peanut butter, which was pretty good. Zhong Yuhuan stopped hesitating and hurriedly swallowed in a few bites. She was afraid that there would be some other changes, and she wouldn’t even be able to drink water, not to mention eating biscuits.
Just like that, one entire piece of hardtack entered Zhong Yuhuan’s stomach.
Li Jinyuan paused, just realizing that feeding biscuits and feeding water were very different…
But it was enough.
Li Jinyuan was thinking and turned to look at Wen Yongchen. He saw that Wen Yongchen’s eyes were slightly dull, looking in their direction and showing a lost expression. But that expression was fleeting, and Wen Yongchen soon showed a “complicated” expression.
After Zhong Yuhuan finished slowly swallowing the food in her mouth, half an hour had passed from when the first gunshot was heard.
The people hiding under the pews let out a breath of relief. They couldn’t maintain such awkward positions anymore, so they stood up one after another.
Gu Yuling was the first to praise. “Li Jinyuan is correct. This place really is safe.”
Others echoed that sentiment.
The cameramen continued to film with dedication. They didn’t know whether this bit would be boldly included into the show, or be a highlight, or be sold to the media as hype material…
Regardless, the atmosphere in the church finally began to warm up.
Ge Mei also walked over, wanting to take initiative to ask about rescue.
“There shouldn’t be any more problems. Just wait a bit,” Li Jinyuan said.
His attention wasn’t on this topic, so he only said a couple of sentences to Ge Mei and did not continue.
Gu Yuling followed Ge Mei over, but her gaze went past Li Jinyuan and landed on Zhong Yuhuan.
After this many episodes, she finally understood. If she wanted to talk with Li Jinyuan or Huo Chengming, it would be useless to just say something. One of these two men looked hard to get close to and the other looked like a warm gentleman, but a warm blade would hurt more…
There was only one opportunity: Zhong Yuhuan.
If one could talk a lot with Zhong Yuhuan, then they would naturally become familiar with the two men.
Not to mention…
Gu Yuling was more sensitive than others, so she had already realized that if there wasn’t any rescue soon, they’d probably have to depend on Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming.
Gu Yuling thought about it, then took a piece of chocolate from her pocket, handing it to Zhong Yuhuan. “Does Yuhuan want some? I just noticed that I had some low-blood sugar preventing chocolate in my pocket. It’s a bit sweet, and will make your brain much more comfortable.”
Zhong Yuhuan turned her head and glanced at her, then extended her hand and received it.
Due to Gu Yuling’s action, Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming almost simultaneously looked at her.
As expected, Gu Yuling thought.
As expected, as long as Zhong Yuhuan reacts, the other two will naturally follow her reaction.
Normally, chocolate wouldn’t be some type of rare food, and Zhong Yuhuan didn’t like it that much either. But being able to eat something sweet at this time will relieve fatigue and tension.
Zhong Yuhuan slowly unwrapped the packaging.
At this time, she felt a gaze staring at her, or rather, at the chocolate in her hands.
Zhong Yuhuan turned to look, immediately seeing Ling Lan.
Zhong Yuhuan wouldn’t do something like use the chocolate to please the original female lead.
She took back her gaze and put the unwrapped chocolate into her mouth, slowly chewing and swallowing.
“Thanks,” she said to Gu Yuling.
Ling Lan’s gaze changed in an instant, a slight darkness flashed across her eyes.
Zhong Yuhuan didn’t know what physiological changes this piece of chocolate would create in Ling Lan.
Either way, she felt that she should give Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming more trust. Even though these two bastards have become very weird lately as if they were keeping some secret from her… when danger came, their first thought was of her. If she still suspected that they would fall for the original female lead in the future, it would be a bit unfair.
So Zhong Yuhuan ate happily, without any psychological burden.
In the church, everyone secretly looked at the chocolate and swallowed.
But thinking about how they could leave this dreaded place soon, everyone felt relieved.
But just as they felt that, they heard the sound of motorized vehicles and everyone immediately became tense again.
As their hearts fluctuated, many cars stopped outside the church.
“Are those troops back?” Gu Yuling asked with a trembling voice. As she asked, she slowly leaned towards Zhong Yuhuan.
See, she was much smarter than Yin QIqi and wouldn’t directly rush to Li Jinyuan and Huo Chengming.
