C61 Chapter 61

The next morning, when I woke up, Lü Shuqin wasn't awake.

The night before, I received Lu Shuqin at the airport. I took my luggage and drove home. Sitting in the car, I was just about to ask about Xiao Song's condition when I heard Lu Shu Qin say that she was tired. In the blink of an eye, she fell asleep. At the embassy, I asked her if she wanted to eat something.

"No," Lu Shuqin was still confused. "I didn't sleep much on the way here. Now, I just want to have a good sleep. "

I thought about it too. She had been running around for more than 30 hours. Coupled with the time difference, she must have been exhausted.

It was still early for breakfast. I went to the yard and brought a ladder. I placed it on the coconut tree. I brought a machete and climbed to the top of the ladder. I cut down two coconut. Lu Shuqin came and cut down two coconut for her to taste. The mango season was not yet up. I'm holding a bunch of bananas in the room, it's almost ready. I climbed down the ladder. I placed the coconut on the ground, then took a knife and a few plastic bottles. I climbed up the ladder again. He used the bottle to pick up the coconut juice and prepared to brew the coconut wine. Ambassador Ju Hua and the others came, I finished the coconut wine I brewed earlier, I need to brew some more to prepare. The advance team and medical team are here, I plan to invite them to the embassy for a meal later, when the time comes, it will be useful.

This is a new skill I learned after coming to Yoshido. When I first came to Jido, I found that almost every family's coconut trees had all kinds of bottles hanging on them. I often saw Jido men climb up the trees and hang bottles on them.

"What are they doing?" Once, I asked Brian.

"Take the coconut juice," Brian said.

"Pick it up and drink it?" I asked.

"No," Brian said. "It's used to brew wine, to brew coconut wine. The coconut juice is very bitter, so you can't drink it. "

"Why?" I asked.

"What we can drink is the water in the coconut, and the coconut juice is extracted from the stem, it's not the same," Brian explained.

I don't really understand.

"Boss, when you have time, I will make it for you to see. You'll know," Brian said.

Later, Brian came to the embassy, and gave me a demonstration. So I learned to take coconut juice and brew coconut wine. Taking coconut juice is actually not difficult, When the coconut blooms, I find the kind that is budding. . . He cut off the bud with a small knife and revealed the stem. He wrapped a coconut leaf around the cut and tied it up. He put the tip of the coconut leaf into the bottle and hung the bottle up. The coconut juice would slowly seep out from the cut. It flowed along the tip of the leaf into the bottle. Once the bottle was filled, it would be taken off. He poured the coconut juice into the bottle and stored the fermentation. It became coconut wine.

Today, I am very happy, He hummed a little tune and hung a bottle on the coconut tree to receive the coconut juice. Humming a tune was something I learned from Yusuf. According to Yusuf, he hummed a tune as he picked up the coconut juice. When the coconut tree was happy to hear it, more juice would flow out. Regardless of whether what Yusufu said was true or not, The humming of the song was indeed in line with the mood when he hung the bottle and received the coconut juice.

Of course, there is another reason why I'm humming a tune today. It is because Lu Shuqin is here. I'm happy in my heart. Lu Shuqin's arrival has ended my life as a lone island for half a year. It's weird to say so. As soon as Lu Shuqin arrived, I felt much more relaxed. It was as if I had suffered for the past six months. The dangers and the tragedies that I experienced. It was all worth it, and his life was filled with hope once again. At the airport, Lu Shuqin walked out of the plane. That was how I felt.

Women are really magical. I muttered to myself, smiled, shook my head, and started to hum my song again.

"Zhong Liang, why are you standing so high?"

I was shocked, and the bottle in my hand almost fell down. I froze for a moment and suddenly came back to my senses. It was Lu Shu Qin who was shouting.

"I'm. . . I'm. . . I'm receiving coconut water," I turned around and said to Lu Shuqin.

"Be careful not to fall," Lu Shuqin said.

"It's fine," I said.

"What do you mean it's fine? Hurry up and get down. I have something to tell you," Lu Shuqin said.

"I'll hang this up and come down," I said. I hung up the last bottle and slowly climbed down the ladder.

"Be careful," Lu Shuqin had been holding onto the ladder at some point.

"I'm fine," I said with a smile.

"I only know how to laugh. Let me tell you, you're not allowed to climb that high again," Lu Shuqin said.

"Okay, I'll listen to you. " I said, I bent down and picked up the two coconut that I placed on the ground. I handed them to Lu Shuqin. "These are for you. "

"Let me ask you, Zhong Liang, why did you lie to me?" Lu Shuqin did not answer and directly asked.

"What did you say?" Lu Shuqin suddenly became serious and I couldn't react in time.

"You said in the letter that it's good for the embassy. That's good too," Lu Shu Qin said.

I awkwardly stood there with a coconut in one hand and didn't say anything.

"That's what you meant by good? Just these few straw houses? " Lu Shuqin asked.

I still didn't say anything. I can't explain. I really didn't tell Lu Shuqin the truth.

"Also, didn't you say that there are other colleagues in the embassy?" Lu Shuqin asked again.

"There are other colleagues," I said slowly.

"What about that person?" Lu Shuqin chased after him and asked.

"He's gone," I said guiltily. "Before you came, the Ju Hua couple came. Then we followed them. "

"Do you think I couldn't tell?" Lu Shuqin said, "I've looked around the house just now. You're the only one here. "

I can't say anything.

"Why didn't you tell me earlier?" Lu Shuqin continued, "You thought I wouldn't come if you told me, didn't you?"

I didn't say anything. I didn't say yes or no.

"If I had known that you would think that way, I wouldn't have come," Lu Shuqin said hatefully, her eyes suddenly turning watery.

I wanted to comfort her, but I didn't know what to say. I think I must be a fool.

"Let me tell you, I'm leaving tomorrow," Lu Shuqin said, tears streaming down her face.

"Don't. . . It's my fault. " I finally remembered that I should admit my mistake.

"Then why did you hide it from me?" Lu Shuqin said with tears streaming down her face.

"I. . . I. . . I don't want you to worry about me," I said. I do think so. I always feel ashamed of Lu Shuqin. I think if I go to a better country and Lu Shuqin follows me, I won't have to suffer too much.

"Why didn't you. . . Tell me?" Lu Shuqin wiped her eyes with her hand and sobbed, "Do you think I didn't live in a straw house, didn't go down to my hometown, didn't suffer. . . "

Only then did I realize that I've looked at Lu Shuqin wrongly. If Lu Shuqin cared about the conditions, She could have found a reason not to come to Gido. She decided that she had come from afar for no other reason. It's just because I'm here. So when she came, she found out that I hid it from her. She was furious that I didn't tell her the truth. She felt that I was definitely looking at her with the eyes of the secular world. This hurt her pride.

I suddenly wanted to go up and give Lu Shuqin a hug. Just as I was about to reach out, I realized that I was still holding a coconut in one hand.

"Ribbit! Ribbit!" At this very awkward moment, the loud cry of a parrot could be heard. A pair of parrots flew over from King Brown's side and cried out unceasingly along the way. They rushed straight to the coconut tree and were just about to stop at the top of the tree when they saw Lu Shuqin and I standing under the tree. Thus, they cawed loudly and flew away, sounding extremely unwilling.

The parrot's cawing clearly attracted all of Lu Shuqin's attention. She stared unblinkingly at the parrot that flew over and then flew away.

"What kind of bird is this?" Lu Shuqin asked.

"Party," I said, "also called Love Bird. "

"There's actually such a beautiful bird here," Lu Shuqin exclaimed.

"Yes, they often fly around in the yard," I said. "They can be seen almost every day. "

"You said they are called Love Birds?" Lu Shuqin asked.

"Yes," I said.

"Why?"

"They fly and fly, always in pairs, never leaving," I said.

"Oh, I see," Lu Shuqin said.

I didn't say anything else, and Lu Shuqin didn't say anything either. I noticed that Lu Shuqin was flying in the direction of the parrot. After staring blankly for a while, she turned around and said to me,

"Oh right, what did you just say you wanted to give me? Coconut?"

"Yes, it's coconut," I said. I was overjoyed when Lu Shuqin suddenly asked about coconut. It means that she won't be angry with me anymore. I quickly handed the coconut over.

"How do I eat this? I've never eaten this before," Lu Shuqin asked.

"I'll tell you when we get inside," I said.

We'll go back inside together. I cut open the outer shell of the coconut, dug out a triangle on the inner shell, and poured the coconut water into the bowl.

"This is coconut water, it tastes good," I said.

"It tastes good," Lu Shuqin picked up the bowl and took a sip, then drank it all in one go.

"This coconut water is cool and refreshing to quench your thirst. According to what I said here, if the water and soil are not good enough, drinking coconut water will be fine. " I said with a smile.

"There is such an effect?" Lu Shuqin asked curiously.

"Yeah. Coconut water can also be made into coconut wine, "I said. "I hung the bottle just now to get the coconut juice. But that coconut juice wasn't the one you were drinking, it was the coconut juice that dripped from the stem. It is very bitter and cannot be drunk. Coconut wine, I've done it myself a few times, the last time Ambassador Juhua and the others came, I drank it all. I need to make something new. When it's done, you can try it. It doesn't have a high degree, it tastes good. "

"Alright," Lu Shuqin said.

"This coconut is the treasure here. It can be used as a drink, can be made into wine, and can be dried into coconut by sunbathing. They eat the coconut as rice. "

" Then they definitely won't be full, right? " Lu Shuqin said.

"I think so too, but there's no coconut here, so it won't be a feast. As long as we eat, we definitely won't be able to leave the coconut, just like how we can't leave the rice," I said.

"If we don't come, we really wouldn't know," Lu Shuqin said.

" Yeah, this is the tropical area. It's a bit poor, but it's also fun to be poor, "I said.

"That's true," Lu Shuqin said.

"You'll like it when you get used to it," I said.
