He is from the Great Sea of ​​Stars [Quick Travel] Chapter 19

Fang Xiazi was finally dragged into playing poker.

She would rather eat meat around the bonfire, but her girlfriends were tired of chatting, and they wanted to watch the cards very much.

Moreover, there were only a few pieces of mushroom remains left on the plate, which was very bleak.

So they softly begged her to agree.

Fang Xiazi was very depressed. “If you want to play, you can go by yourselves. Why do you have to bring me?”

They blinked. “We can’t bear to leave you here alone.”

Plus, they said it’s the senior sister, not senior sisters.

As part of this “we,” it wouldn’t be good to go without inviting you.

Regardless, the girl was finally drawn to the poker field anyway.

Huo Xingchao gave up his seat for her and then handed out the cards in his hand. He smiled, “Here are the cards I just drew.”

Fang Xiazi frowned and shook her head, her tone flat. “I’m not very good at playing. It’s up to you guys. Let’s play.”

“It’s okay.”

The boy curled his lips, raised his tone, and smiled slightly. “Since my senior sister is playing for me, I’ll cover any losses, and I’ll give you half of the winnings.”

Before the girl could refute, he raised his eyebrows and made a farewell gesture with his hand.

The mountain wind lifted the black hair on his forehead, and his brows became darker and more handsome. “I’ll cook something for you guys.”

Jiang Wei eyes immediately lit up. “Brother Huo, I want ten skewers of mutton skewers!”

“Alright.”

The boy said in a gentle tone with a smile on his face, “May I ask what kind of sauce you want?”

“Forget it.”

Jiang Wei begged for forgiveness and hung his head mournfully. “I have a bad stomach, so I still don’t want to eat.”

After Huo Xingchao left, the people around followed suit. Fang Xiazi could only bite the bullet and sit in his seat, playing poker.

She actually likes playing cards. When she went home for Chinese New Year, she would often sit in the back seat of the car with her cousins to play the game “Fight the Landlord.”

But due to her poor skills, her brothers and sisters pushed her aside in disgust after only a few games.

Then, she could only play blackjack with her ten-year-old cousin.

Fang Xiazi’s skills were poor.

But this group of boys were all poker masters. When they heard Huo Xingchao say that the loser would belong to him, they immediately became excited. They set ambitious goals in their hearts to earn back the WeChat change they had lost.

A group of grown men were now intriguing and scheming.

More than half an hour later, Fang Xiazi successfully lost over 300 yuan for Huo Xingchao.

Not more, not less, it happened to be the pocket money she had saved from the breakfast fee in one semester.

To put it more precisely, it was the heartache she felt when she struggled for a long time in front of the pancake stand during countless mornings, and finally replaced steak with ham sausage.

So, to make herself feel better, Fang Xiazi changed her perspective.

Um, it’s okay. No problem.

300 yuan.

Exactly the price of one lace for his pair of shoes.

If she really couldn’t afford it, she would steal a lace from her cousin’s shoe of the same style.

So the girl continued to play with a cold face, holding a pair of aces.

But there are never more than three decks of cards shuffled together. To make up for the missing cards, a bunch of extra cards are added. Each draw must have a 3.

Or a pair of 3.

Three 3s.

After another half an hour, student Fang Xiazi successfully accumulated a huge debt of one thousand yuan.

TT

It’s over.

This time, I might have to steal the insoles.

The girl’s expression was calm, and she was still sorting out the remaining six cards with her fingertips, as if she was contemplating her next move.

But in reality, she had become a walking dead.

Woohoo, have you forgotten what your mother told you?

Pornography, gambling, and drugs are off-limits!

I loved playing lottery games as a child, and I never changed even after repeated warnings. Now I have learned my lesson.

Do you think you’re great?

You deserve to go bankrupt!

Fang Xiazi’s family is an ordinary family. Her father is a civil servant, and her mother is an elementary school teacher. Except for breakfast, they usually eat and live at home, so the amount of pocket money is not large.

In addition, she obediently handed over the Chinese New Year red envelopes to her mother every time, which resulted in adding cash to her WeChat piggy bank. In total, she saved less than 500 yuan.

The girl silently calculated, 1016 minus 492 equals…

524 yuan.

Having 524 yuan means she won’t have to steal her cousin’s favorite shoes.

She had to kneel down and ask her parents for help.

Wow, if her mother knew that she had lost more than a thousand yuan in gambling, she would sever their mother-daughter relationship.

Woooooo…

Fang Xiazi cried sadly in her heart. Just as the game was over, she stood up and said, “Well, I’ve played enough. I’d better give up my seat to you guys.”

Feeling guilty for beating Brother Huo’s little sister too hard, her little friends quickly nodded and said, “Okay, senior sister, take a break and go eat some meat with Brother Huo. His barbecue skills are absolutely top-notch!”

Yes, she knew.

She just finished a plate.

But she couldn’t eat anything now; she just wanted to feel the breeze and calm down.

Fang Xiazi sat on the picnic blanket in front of her tent.

The mountain wind blew her hair onto her temples. The girl looked at the two or three stars in the night sky with a calm expression. Her eyelashes were slightly curled, and her eyes were cold.

She was like a beauty in a night oil painting.

But in reality, she was just thinking about how to ask her mother for money so that she wouldn’t be kicked out of the house.

“Senior sister, are you done fighting?” A smiling young man’s voice came from beside her. Fang Xiazi raised her head and saw that it was Huo Xingchao. She nodded slightly and said, “Yes, I’m just taking a break to enjoy the scenery.”

“By the way.”

She took out her mobile phone, opened WeChat, and organized her words, “I don’t have enough balance in my account right now. Can I add you on WeChat and transfer the money to you when I get home?”

The boy raised his eyebrows, said nothing, and simply took out his mobile phone. He brought up his WeChat card and asked her to scan it.

Then they became friends on WeChat.

The other party’s WeChat name was her English name: Summer.

Huo Xingchao’s fingertips paused on the keyboard. His lips curled up, and he typed five characters squarely.

—Sister Fang Xiazi.

Then he put away his phone, handed her the plate in his hand, blinked, and the corners of his eyes raised in an unruly arc.

“Sister, eat the meat first, and I’ll go make money.”

The girl took the plate and was stunned. What does this mean?

…After half an hour, she knew.

Because on the WeChat chat interface, there was an extra transfer message of 521 yuan.

It was Huo Xingchao who sent it to her.

“Senior sister, they don’t want to play with me anymore, so I can only give you 521.”

Behind it was a heartbroken expression.

??

This is too bullying!

She lost the money in an hour, but he won back twice the amount in half an hour?

Fang Xiazi sighed sadly and accepted the transfer.

She knew that even if she said to return the money she lost to Huo Xingchao, he would definitely not agree.

So after accepting the transfer, she transferred all her change to him.

“No matter what, it’s a formality to compensate you. If you don’t accept it, I’ll have to pay it all back.”

How coincidental.

She originally had a balance of 145 yuan, and adding it up, the value displayed on the screen happened to be 666.

So the boy quickly accepted the transfer.

Then he sent a black and white panda holding a windmill happy expression.

“Thank you, senior.”

Thanks a lot.

Fang Xiazi couldn’t help but laugh and cry as she bit into her skewer.

Could this kid really have a crush on her?

It was the first time she saw someone so happy to lose money.

After the night grew deeper, the teacher in charge of the group didn’t let them continue to make noise and told them to pack up and go back to the tent to sleep.

However, Fang Xiazi couldn’t fall asleep. She heard her best friend’s steady breathing beside her and carefully got up, put on her jacket, and unzipped the tent to go outside.

When she couldn’t sleep, Fang Xiazi liked to ponder things over and over again.

But in the tent, she was afraid of waking up the person sleeping beside her when she turned over. She stared at the dark tent roof for a long time, but in the end, she couldn’t hold back, so she got up and went outside to get some fresh air.

The campfire still burned brightly.

Two boys on night watch were sitting nearby, one of whom had won over 500 yuan from her at the poker table.

And the other was the person who had won back twice the money she had lost.

When Huo Xingchao heard the sound, he saw a girl wrapped in a sports jacket walking toward them.

He raised his eyebrows, a little surprised.

“Senior sister, why aren’t you sleeping?”

“I can’t sleep.”

The girl sat cross-legged in front of him, seeming to be a bit cold from the mountain night temperature. She sniffed, but her tone was still calm.

“So I came out to warm up by the fire.”

The young man took off his coat and covered her head. “The temperature is low at night, be careful not to catch a cold.”

Fang Xiazi looked at his thin long-sleeved shirt and frowned. She was about to take off the coat on her head.

“I have enough clothes, I don’t need it. Just wear it yourself.”

The boy reached out and gently held her hand. Even though it was night, his smile was as radiant as the rising sun.

“Actually, I’m a little hot. Sister, consider it a favor for me.”

Talking nonsense with his eyes open.

Of course, Fang Xiazi would not believe such a nonsensical reason. She grabbed his cuff and pulled his hand away.

“I won’t help.”

“I don’t care if you’re hot or not…”

Her voice suddenly stopped.

Even the motion of lifting clothes halted.

Because not far behind in the woods,

A voice gradually emerged, one that was very familiar to her.

“…Xiaokui, don’t run around anymore. The mountains are dangerous, do you know?”

Then came, a lively female voice,

“It’s okay, look, there are fires ahead. It must be the fourth camp. I asked Yuyan, she said Huo Xingchao is on the night watch tonight. Don’t worry, I won’t do anything, I’ll just hide behind the tree and watch him before going back.”

They were saying “dangerous” and “secretly,” but their voices were as loud as in a drama.

If it weren’t for the distance, they might have awakened the entire camp.

Jiang Wei, who had been too afraid to speak until now, couldn’t help but grin, revealing a mischievous smile.

“Brother Huo, is it your little fan again?”

Huo Xingchao looked at the girl trembling under the clothes, frowned, but didn’t say anything.

Meanwhile, the conversation continued over there.

“Xiaokui, you have to come back with me now. The wilderness is truly dangerous. If something happens, no one will be able to save you!”

“Nothing will happen.”

“Just because you say nothing will happen doesn’t mean nothing will happen. Do you know…”

“Shhh…”

The girl put her index finger to her lips, giving him a displeased look.

“Your voice is too loud. What if Huo Xingchao hears about it later?”

Huo Xingchao, who had already heard it, raised an eyebrow, pulled down the girl’s clothes covering her head, and covered her head and upper body more tightly.

Then he turned around, his eyes slightly narrowed, and his gaze fell on the person who hadn’t had time to crouch down behind the bushes.

Hmm.

He wasn’t as tall as him, and his face wasn’t as handsome. The shirt he wore was a style his grandfather had liked last year.

His eyes narrowed slightly, but he had no aura at all, like a weak blind person.

Hey.

He couldn’t hold a candle to him at all.
