He is from the Great Sea of ​​Stars [Quick Travel] Chapter 7

There are two children in the Huo family.

They have the same parents, but their appearances are completely different.

Huo Xingchao has a handsome appearance. When he raises his eyebrows or blinks, he exudes charm and recklessness, and he looks very attractive.

He has inherited the best qualities of his parents.

In contrast, Huo Chenyang looks very upright, with a square face and thick lips, giving people a sense of trustworthiness.

This is just like the personalities of the two brothers.

When Huo Chenyang walked to the door, he just happened to hear his younger brother mocking the people of the Jiang family, and couldn’t help but rebuke him.

In his heart, his younger brother was always out of line, while the Jiang family took good care of him.

During this time in the countryside, he found that He Nian and He Yi always looked neat and tidy, and only occasionally helped their family pick wild vegetables.

In contrast, Jiang Xiaxia often helped her grandmother feed the chickens, brought food to her grandmother in the fields, and always had patches on her clothes.

He thought that the Jiang family had treated the two siblings of the He family well enough.

As a neighbor, it was already good enough to do this.

But Huo Xingchao not only didn’t know how to repay kindness, but also spoke impolitely here, which was a bit too much.

However, except for his grandfather, there was no one in his Huo Xingchao’s eyes and heart that he was afraid of. So when he heard his brother’s words, he just glanced at him, snorted, and pulled He Yi to go inside.

“He Yi, let’s go eat.”

He Yi didn’t know Huo Chenyang very well, but when he heard the word “eat,” he nodded and followed his brother Xingchao into the house, hopping and skipping.

As for He Nian, he looked at him with a complicated expression, but didn’t say anything and followed him into the house.

Huo Chenyang rubbed his nose and felt that the little girl’s attitude was a bit strange today, but he didn’t think too much about it.

Because Jiang Xiaxia had already forgotten what Huo Xingchao said earlier and pulled Huo Chenyang towards the kitchen.

“Big brother Chenyang, my grandmother cooked meat today, let’s go eat.”

Everyone was already gathered in the room.

Grandma Jiang and her three sons were sitting at the table, while Mother Huo was a guest and also sitting.

As for the other children and daughters-in-law, they did not sit at the table, but instead sat or stood on the small stools next to the stove.

Seeing Huo Xingchao leading He Yi in, everyone had different expressions, and it was unclear what they were thinking.

Mother Huo burst into tears when she saw her eldest son.

Standing up, “Chenyang…”

Huo Chenyang was also very excited.

He hadn’t seen his family for almost half a year, and he went forward to help his mother, his voice trembling slightly.

“Mom!”

“You’ve lost weight, really lost weight.”

Mother Huo touched his face, looked at his cotton coat still covered in grass, tears streaming down her face.

“I don’t know if you’ve been eating enough or staying warm during the past half year away from home. Every day at home, I’ve been thinking about how you’re doing alone in the countryside, but I didn’t dare to come see you…”

“Mom, don’t worry, I’m doing well. Especially with Grandma Jiang and Uncle Jiang taking good care of me. You can rest assured.”

“Yes, Aunt Huo, during the time in Shaping Village, everyone praised Chenyang. He’s a good boy who can work hard and knows how to be grateful. Everyone likes him, so you can rest assured.”

Huo Xingchao understood the special meaning behind the words of Aunt Jiang, and yet he didn’t take them to heart. Anyway, his main purpose for coming today was to see He Nian. If it weren’t for his mother’s desire to catch up with her son, he wouldn’t even want to eat this meal.

However, just then, a shrill scream suddenly came from the main room. “Ah! Grandma! Grandma!”

Before everyone could react, the voice became more and more panicked. “Grandma! Dad! Come quickly!”

Aunt Jiang was stunned for a moment, then quickly stood up. “Is that Xiaxia’s voice? What’s happened to her?”

“What kind of trouble can she have at home?”

Jiang’s daughter-in-law felt embarrassed because of her daughter’s scream and spit anxiously. “This girl has no sense. I’ll beat her to death.”

When everyone rushed into the main room, they were all shocked.

On the muddy ground at the moment was coiled a big snake with a thickness of two adult wrists.

Its color was dark, black and yellow mixed. Coiling and moving on the ground, it also made a hissing sound.

He Nian always feared snakes and bugs. So in the summer, she tried her best not to go up the mountain if she could help it. After her parents died, she had no choice but to wrap herself up tightly and go up the mountain to pick wild vegetables. Even so, she still often had nightmares out of fear.

Now seeing such a big snake, she was so frightened that she could hardly make a sound. Her small face had turned pale, and goosebumps covered her whole body. Moreover, the snake somehow suddenly coiled its body and moved towards their direction. The direction it was facing was exactly where Jiang Xiaxia was.

Although Jiang Xiaxia was usually brave, she was still a little girl after all. She cried out in fear, “Ah! Grandma, Dad, help me!” She frantically avoided it, tears streaming down her face, and then instinctively pushed the person beside her to block the snake.

Coincidentally, the person beside her was He Nian.

He Nian tried to avoid it, but she didn’t have the strength to do so. As she watched the large snake wriggling on the ground, her whole body went numb. She felt like she was under a spell, unable to move, and watched as the snake came closer and closer.

She suddenly closed her eyes.

“He Nian, step back.”

A teenage boy’s voice suddenly came from her ear.

And the panicked shout of Mother Huo.

“Xingchao!”

Aside from that, there was nothing.

No hissing sound nearby.

No disgusting touch.

It was all empty.

The dark visual space was really scary. He Nian couldn’t help but quietly open one eye.

The imagined large snake did not appear.

Instead, she saw the back of a teenage boy.

Huo Xingchao was standing in front of her. Feeling her stillness, he pushed her back, “What are you standing there for? Go to the side!”

He Nian was pushed into the corner.

The snake happened to stop in front of the boy.

Its body stretched out, its small eyes staring at him, its tongue hissing as it came close to touching his chin.

The boy frowned.

He looked at it seriously.

Everyone around was already sweating with fear.

Mother Huo was in tears, but was held tightly by her eldest son and couldn’t move.

The snake had a triangular head and fangs.

It was obvious that this was a poisonous snake.

Although the Jiang family’s house was built on the mountain, in all these years, there had never been a situation where a poisonous snake had run into the house!

Uncle Jiang held a gourd ladle, sweating profusely, afraid that the snake that appeared for no reason would become aggressive.

But unexpectedly, after staring at each other for a while, the snake slowly retracted its head, coiled a few times on the ground, turned around, and crawled out of the window.

Slowly.

Until the last part of its tail disappeared from sight.

Everyone breathed a sigh of relief.

Huo Chenyang let go of his mother’s hand, and Mother Huo rushed up and slapped her younger son’s head and face.

While crying, she scolded him, “I let you show off and find trouble, how could you be so capable, do you know that was a poisonous snake, Huo Xingchao? If I don’t teach you a lesson today, you will be lawless…”

The others hurriedly pulled her away.

“Auntie, forget it, at least it was a narrow escape. Xingchao is lucky.”

“Don’t hit him anymore, it’s New Year’s Day, and this may be a good omen. The child is fine, isn’t he?”

“Let’s go eat, let’s eat. Auntie, don’t cry, Xingchao, come, have some water to calm down…”

Everyone pulled them apart.

They pulled Mother Huo towards the kitchen, and Huo Xingchao followed to comfort his mother after being hit a few times.

Only He Nian was left.

Standing in place, her face still slightly pale, watching the teenager’s back.

It was unclear what she was thinking.

Soon after, the teenager came back.

He tried to scare her with a stern face, “What are you still standing there for? Aren’t you afraid the snake will come back? Let’s go eat!”

The little girl’s eyes finally turned red, her voice was soft and choked up, “Thank you, Brother Xingchao.”

“Thank me by writing me a letter.”

Huo Xingchao raised his eyebrows and threatened her, “I’ll give you those stamps, but you have to send them all before you graduate next semester.”

“Otherwise, you’ll be ungrateful, you know that?”

“I know.”

The little girl smiled through her tears, nodded seriously, “I will.”
