Chapter 78: Xiao Zhang was hit and fell down
During this almost month-long period of traveling to south for several hundred miles.
The land on this side was no longer so dry and cracked.
Occasionally, passing through forests or mountains, they could also find quite a few wild vegetables.
However, they also encountered more and more pedestrians, most of whom were those who had fled after the earthquake. Their goal was the same, which was to head south.
Arriving at this point, they could find wild vegetables and water sources to satisfy their hunger.
These people’s situation was still manageable.
However, when the large group of the Shen family appeared, it still attracted the attention of many people.
It was because they brought too many things with them that passing pedestrians couldn’t help but swallow their saliva and look at them greedily.
However, seeing several people guarding the ox cart with knives in their hands and a fierce look on their faces, many people were scared and took two steps back.
On this day, the Shen family stopped to have lunch and take a rest for a while.
Xiao Zhang Shi was already six months pregnant, and her belly was unusually large, possibly due to expecting twins.
Shen Yun stood beside an empty space, supporting Xiao Zhang Shi as she leisurely spun around in circles.
Xiao Zhang gently caressed her belly and asked with a happy expression, “Do you hope these two babies are boys or girls?”
Shen Yun also placed his hand gently over Xiao Zhang’s hand and said softly, “Our Shen family has fewer girls. If both of them are girls, they will definitely be as adorable and lovable as Yu’an was when she was little. I will definitely love and cherish them.”
“However, it’s also fine to have one boy and one girl, a brother and a sister.”
Xiao Zhang pouted and smiled, “What if both of them turn out to be boys?”
She also really wanted a daughter, but she realized that there were very few examples of girls being born in the Shen family.
Shen Yun’s expression also became downcast, filled with unwillingness, as if he could already envision his sweet and tender little daughter flying away.
After hesitating for a moment, he finally said, “Even if they are both sons, I will still love and cherish them.”
Xiao Zhang looked at him with a doting gaze, wanting to see the gender of the babies in her belly right now. She couldn’t help but smile.
Although they both wanted a daughter, even if they end up having sons, they would still raise them well and provide proper upbringing.
The two of them looked lovingly at Xiao Zhang’s big belly.
The final piece of wood that had been fixed to Fei Yanchen’s leg was removed yesterday, but he still needed some exercise since he hadn’t been walking for a long time.
Shen Yu’an originally wanted to help with cooking, but her hands were skilled in fighting and killing, and she had no idea how to cook.
So she was kicked out to assist Fei Yanchen in his ‘rehabilitation training’.
Of course, Fei Yanchen also played a part in this.
Originally, Zhang Wendong was going to take over this task, but after Fei Yanchen’s pitiful persuasion, Shen Yu’an ended up helping him instead.
Shen Yu’an with Fei Yanchen walked past the two couple and overheard the conversation about the two unborn babies , and happened to catch a glimpse of the longing look in her third uncle’s eyes.
She knew that both of them had long been hoping for the two babies in their bellies to be girls.
She smiled and took over the conversation, saying, “The wish of Third Uncle and Third Aunt will definitely come true.”
“Really?” Shen Yun asked happily.
“Of course it’s true. When have I ever lied to you?” Shen Yu’an proudly said, tilting her head back, and then playfully winked, saying, “Just you wait.”
After saying that, she continued to support Fei Yanchen and walked away, intending to leave them some space. Shen Yun and his wife continued to spin in place.
Suddenly, a middle-aged person holding a child hurriedly ran over.
The middle-aged man ran while looking back, his expression panicked and anxious.
Just as he turned his head, he saw the two people in front of him, and he tried to stop and go around them.
But he was running too fast and couldn’t stop at all. He crashed into Shen Yun and Xiao Zhang with a sudden force.
Shen Yun and Xiao Zhang were facing away from this person and didn’t notice the danger approaching from behind. They were still discussing the matter of the two unborn babies.
“Move aside, quickly!” the middle-aged man shouted.
The attention of the others was drawn to the commotion, and the two of them also turned their heads to see the person running with a child in his arms.
However, the person was already in front of them, and there was no time to dodge. Shen Yun could only protect Xiao Zhang in his arms.
All four of them fell to the ground. Xiao Zhang, being protected by Shen Yun, fell onto him, but her stomach still felt a sharp pain.
The man who had hit someone saw that the others were coming over.
Without thinking much, he quickly got up and grabbed the arm of the child who had been thrown out.
Without caring whether the child was in pain or not, he quickly ran away.
The child was dragged while crying loudly, but the man didn’t stop, and still run as fast as he can.
Shen Yu’an ran to her third uncle and third aunt first, helping the sweating Xiao Zhang sit up.
Grandma Shen grabbed Bai Wu and hurriedly ran over, anxiously saying, “Hurry, Doctor Bai, please quickly check on my daughter-in-law. I hope nothing serious happened.”
Shen Yu’an stepped aside, watching the direction the man ran off with a sense of unease.
She quickly said, “You keep an eye on Third Aunt, I’ll go after that person.”
“I’ll go too.”
“I’ll go too.”
Shen Dalang and Shen Erlang also followed suit. They bumped into Aunt Xiao Zhang and ran away, they wouldn’t let him get away with it.
They had to catch him and bring him back.
The rest of the people waited anxiously in place for Bai Wu’s diagnosis results.
On the other hand, Shen Yu’an and the others check if Xiao Zhang is not in much pain first, they only run after the culprit after they saw Xiao Zhang, because of it, the person quickly disappeared.
However, at a junction, Shen Yu’an noticed a child’s shoe and she, along with Shen Dalang and Shen Erlang, chased after it.
They hadn’t run far when the three of them spotted a dilapidated temple with smoke coming out from inside.
There was no one guarding the temple from the outside, so the three of them exchanged glances and carefully approached, hiding near a wall.
Inside, there were seven or eight middle-aged men gathered around, watching food being cooked in a pot.
The man they had encountered earlier was among them.
In the corner of the opposite wall, there were several people tied up, including a man and two children, one of whom was the same child they had just seen with a missing shoe on their foot.
It was the same child who is with the man who had been accidentally bumped into Xiao Zhang and was now also bound and placed in the corner, continuously sobbing.
Looking around those people who is gathered around the pot, the three of them clenched their teeth.
