Chapter 1498: Confession

Ah Dai and Father Gu had gone out to the sea to fish as usual. On the way, they met with stormy waves and Father Gu hit his forehead and fell into the sea.

Mr Gu knew how to swim, but he was old and he was not in great health. As such, he had not been able to swim to the boat in the stormy sea.

Ah Dai jumped into the sea to save Father Gu, then drove the boat back.

After the wind and waves subsided, Ah Dai went to take care of the unconscious Father Gu. However, he saw a sea snake approaching Father Gu. At that time, it was too late to chase the snake away with tools. He grabbed the snake with his bare hands and just as he was about to throw the snake into the sea, it bit his arm.

The sea snakes were poisonous and Ah Dai immediately cut open the wound on his arm to squeeze out the poisoned blood. He drove the boat back to the fishing village, but fainted before he reached home.

The village doctor injected him with an antidote, but he did not wake up and instead, fell into a coma.

Gu Meng rushed to Ah Dai’s room and panicked when she saw him lying on the bed with a pale face.

She grabbed the doctor’s arm before he could leave. “Why isn’t he awake even after you injected the antidote?”

“The poison of sea snakes is too strong. A few years ago, there were people in the village who were bitten too. Even after injecting the antidote, they still couldn’t pull through.”

Gu Meng furrowed her eyebrows. “But I heard that there were cases of people surviving.”

“That was an example from twenty years ago. At that time, his family picked a herb called Ghost Herb to save that person’s life. However, the Ghost Herb is deep in the mountains and I haven’t found it in recent years. I don’t think I can find it now.”

“If we find the Ghost Herb, he will be saved, right?”


Gu Meng glanced at the man on the bed. She walked over and whispered in his ear, “Brother Ah Dai, I will definitely find the Ghost Herb. I won’t let you die!”

Seeing that Gu Meng was going out, the village doctor hurriedly stopped her. “Meng, you’re just a little girl. You can’t go deep into the mountains. It’s too dangerous there.”

“I want to go even if it’s dangerous.”

Gu Meng rushed out of the house. Fu Cheng and Mu Yi, who had rushed over after hearing the news, stopped Gu Meng when they heard the village doctor’s words.

“Are you crazy? There are wild beasts and poisonous snakes in the mountains. Besides, Ghost Herb has already gone extinct!” Mu Yi pulled Gu Meng back.

In the past few years, Mu Yi realized that Gu Meng only treated him as a brother. He had thought it through and changed his feelings, falling for another girl, but he had always treated Gu Meng as a sister.

He usually took care of her.

Gu Meng shook off Mu Yi’s hand. At this time, she could not listen to anyone. Even if it was hell, she had to go through it!

When Gu Meng got serious, no one could stop her.

Mu Yi and Fu Cheng could only watch her run away.

Mu Yi sighed. “I don’t know what luck that Ah Dai had in his previous life to make Sister Gu treat him so well.”

They had all seen how Gu Meng treated Ah Dai in the past few years.

The villagers did not like Ah Dai. Sometimes, when the children called him a monster, Gu Meng would jump out and teach those children a lesson. The child told her parents, and her parents would look for Mrs Gu, and Gu Meng would be scolded every time, but she still refused to change.

Every time Ah Dai went out to the sea to fish, she would make delicious food for him to bring along.

Ah Dai’s clothes, shoes, and even socks were bought by her. In her free time, she had even knitted a vest for him.

The last time Mu Yi had pestered her and wanted her to knit for him, she only replied, “I’m only knitting for Brother Ah Dai!”

She liked a person and did not give others any thoughts.

Mu Yi looked at Gu Meng’s disappearing back and sighed slightly. He only hoped that she could find the Ghost Herb and return safely.

Turning his head, he glanced at Fu Cheng, who was still staring in the direction Gu Meng had disappeared in. Mu Yi put his arm around his shoulders and asked with a devilish smile, “Tsk, tsk. Fufu, you’ve hidden yourself well. You always look like you can’t stand her and are always picking on her, but you actually…”

Before she could finish, he slapped him. “Scram!” With that said, he put his hands into his pockets and chased after Gu Meng.

“Hey, where are you going?”

“It’s too dangerous for her to enter the mountain alone. I’ll go take a look.”

Fu Cheng and Mu Yi followed behind Gu Meng quietly and entered the mountain with her.

Gu Meng searched the mountains for nearly 24 hours.

She had fallen and fought with the wild boars, and her calf had been bitten and covered in blood, but she refused to stop to rest and insisted on looking for the herb. Fu Cheng and Mu Yi wanted to pull her back, but she pushed them away and even threatened to cut ties with them if they stopped her again.

Just when they thought she would not be able to find the Ghost Herb, she found it.

At that moment, a smile appeared on her heavy and cold face.

It was only then that Fu Cheng and Mu Yi realized that her every frown and smile was for one person alone.

After Gu Meng handed the Ghost Herb to the village doctor, she fell sick.

After two to three days, she had almost recovered completely. After Ah Dai took the Ghost Herb, he gradually woke up too.

After experiencing the fear and fear of almost losing him, Gu Meng decided to find him and break that layer of paper.

She liked him and wanted to be with him.

She went to town to buy groceries before heading to his house to make several dishes.

He had just woken up and his body was still weak.

Seeing that Gu Meng had made a table of dishes, he pursed his lips slightly. “What day is it today?”

Gu Meng walked to his side and hugged his arm, pulling him to the chair.

She bought a bottle of beer and poured a glass of water for him. “You’ve just recovered and can’t drink. Let’s use water to replace the wine. Come on, let’s have a toast. I hope that in the future, we’ll be healthy and safe. Don’t let anything happen again.”

He looked at her face that had lost a lot of weight, his voice deep. “Why did you lose weight?”,

“I’m on a diet recently!” Gu Meng touched her face. “Did I become prettier?”


Gu Meng pouted and glared at him. “Can’t you say something nice?”

“You don’t look good if you’re too thin.”

“Alright, I’ll eat more in the future and gain some weight back.”

She took a few sips of beer, took a deep breath, and looked up at him again.

The moment she looked over, he looked at her as well. Their eyes met.

She put her hands on her knees and rubbed them together nervously, her long and curly eyelashes fluttering nonstop. “Brother Ah Dai, actually, I have something to say to you tonight.”

Looking at her uneasy expression, he pursed his lips tightly. “Mm, go ahead.”

Gu Meng bit her lip hard. She suddenly got up and walked in front of him, squatting down and holding his hand. “Let’s be together!”

He looked at her deeply. “Aren’t we together now?”

Gu Meng raised her eyes to glare at him. “I’m saying that we should be together as a couple.” She was so nervous that her eyelashes fluttered like butterfly wings. “Brother Ah Dai, I like you. I want to be your girlfriend. Do you want to be my boyfriend?”
