When a Snail Loves by Ding Mo: Part 54

The blazing sun was burning up the earth, on the vast expansive plains, the grass and plants were moving gently in the wind. Between earth and sky, it was as if they were only in two colors, the color of blue water on the above and down was the color of lush green.

 “If you go to Burma, look out for the “golden python”. This is what Ye Zi Xiao’s words were to Xu Xu.

Golden Python is a huge Burmese python. Its body is large with colorful patterns, its ferocious, and poisonous.

Xu Xu believed that from the wording and sentence placement, it referred to the “golden python”, but only hinted to be prepared and gave no explicit guidance; basically had a certain level of credibility.

Lights in the city were turned on.

Xu Jun was sitting in the quiet restaurant that was lit up by the soft light. Then he saw Xu Xu carrying a shoebox with white earbuds in her ears, walking in relaxingly.  

It seemed that this little girl was in a good mood today.

The first day of vacation.

Under the fresh night and soft starlight, Ji Bai was relaxingly sitting on his balcony in his house and sipped the fragrant tea then took out his cell phone to call Zhao Han.

“Boss, what’s wrong?” Zhao received his call, ready for combat by habit.

Ji Bai: “Nothing, just wanted to find time to eat with you within these two days.”

“Well..” Zhao Han relaxed his tone: “How about tomorrow?”

Ji Bai: “What about the day after tomorrow?”
