I Have Decided to Go Look for My Father - Chapter 278
Looking around, Gu Xi’s team was definitely the first to light up the fire.
Many other teams have not yet even set up their stoves.
With such a comparison, Gu Xi couldn’t help but feel a little proud. As she looked at Gu Shao from behind, she giggled.
Just then, Dong Mingming walked over. Seeing Gu Xi’s foolish expression, she raised her hand and waved in front of her eyes, “What are you laughing at?”
“Nothing,” Gu Xi came back to her senses, looked at Dong Mingming, and asked, “Is your family’s side done yet?”
“How is it even possible…” Dong Mingming pursed her lips.
Their family built the stove according to pictures from the Internet as well, but it didn’t work out.
Hence, their family had given up and had Papa Dong to get an iron stove from the supply area which they didn’t have to build on their own.
Dong Mingming was there to borrow fire.
“Just get me two pieces of burning charcoal from your side.” Dong Mingming winked at Gu Xi and handed the iron basket from Papa Dong to her.
It’s not that their family can’t light a fire. Among the families on site, there were many of them who had been trying over and over again with the ignition tools and yet still had no flame even after a long period of time.
At last, most of the groups gave up and went to the supply area to borrow a lighter.
The matter of not having the need to use a lighter was Dong Mingming’s family’s final persistence towards “self-reliance and self-improvement”.
Girl, I’m afraid you have some misunderstanding towards self-reliance and self-improvement.
Gu Xi looked askance at Dong Mingming silently as she roasted her in her heart, but she still willingly shared two pieces of charcoal from her family’s side with them.
Not long after bringing back the two pieces of burning charcoal, Dong Mingming came over again, while carrying a kettle in her hands.
“What do you want to borrow this time?” Gu Xi asked.
Upon hearing this, Dong Mingming chuckled, “Not borrowing anything, just scrounging some fire.”
Before her words died away, Dong Mingming had already ‘consciously’ placed the kettle in her hands on Gu Xi’s family’s stove.
Gu Xi, “…”
Sitting next to Gu Xi, scrounging Gu Xi’s family’s fire, and eating Gu Xi’s family’s Aunty Mei label snacks, Dong Mingming suddenly thought of something, bumped Gu Xi’s arm, and said, “By the way, I saw someone posting on their social media that Liming also came here for the Quality Development Outing.”
Upon hearing Dong Mingming’s words, Gu Xi was taken aback for a moment and was about to ask something. This was when Gu Yanxiao and Gu Chenyi, who had already set up their tents and frames came over.
“You mean Liming?” Gu Yanxiao asked with a frown.
“Yes,” Dong Mingming nodded, and continued, “Seems to be just next to us.”
There are many Quality Development Outing venues at Jing Ping Mountain, so even if they are together, they would not affect each other.
However, upon hearing this, Gu Chenyi still showed a bit of displeasure, and said with dissatisfaction, “Why does Liming join our school every time?”
“Isn’t this normal?” Dong Mingming shrugged and said, “Moreover the No. 7 High School will also be here this time round. Heard that they’re arriving tomorrow, also next to us.”
The top few schools in City B not only make comparisons with their grades, but also in every aspect, even events such as the Quality Development Outing are not overlooked. It has already happened so many times when the timing and location of the events are concurrent.
“Everyone does their own stuff I guess.” Dong Mingming said indifferently.
On the contrary, Dong Mingming was envious for a moment as he saw Gu Yanxiao, Gu Chenyi and Gu Xi wearing matching outfits.
“Your team outfit is so nice!” Dong Mingming muttered, the expressions of ‘so good-looking, I want it, begging for the same style please’ were written all over his face.
The outfits were good looking, that was just one thing. The main attribute was to have enough family members to wear together to bring out this effect.
Why does she not have any cousins or something…
Dong Mingming felt resentful in her heart.
However, in the next second, Dong Mingming suddenly turned her head to look at Gu Xi, smiled, and her eyes lit up.
“Gu Xi, I have a suggestion!”
“What?” Gu Xi asked.
“Why don’t we form an alliance!” Dong Mingming nudged Gu Xi and said excitedly. After a pause, she began to talk about the benefits of the alliance, “In this way we can cook together, share our tents, and when we dig for treasure the more the people the bigger the power!”
“What do you think? What do you think?”
Looking at Dong Mingming’s serious look but unable to hide her excitement as a fangirl, Gu Xi subconsciously glanced at her other two family members.
Why does she feel that her classmate Dong Mingming’s suggestion of alliance was fake, but in fact she was simply just greedy for Gu Yanxiao and Gu Chenyi?
The two of them by the side did not know what was going on in Gu Xi’s mind, and when they saw Gu Xi looking at them, they thought Gu Xi was asking for their opinions.
“I’m fine with anything.” Gu Chenyi shrugged and said.
Then, Gu Yanxiao also said: “I don’t mind either.”
“Alright then.” At last, Gu Xi nodded and approved Dong Mingming’s ‘Application for Alliance’’.
However, when Gu Xi walked past Gu Chenyi and Gu Yanxiao, she secretly sighed, and said to the both of them earnestly, “Guys should protect themselves when they’re outside.”
Gu Yanxiao, “…”
Gu Chenyi, “???”
