Chapter 22 Nightmare
After the dog left, Zhou Ying sprayed some pesticide, then sat on a stone to rest for a while. She then took up the kitchen utensils and started cooking.
She cooked a pot of millet congee, steamed five buns, and stir-fried some mushrooms with meat.
After the meal, the two cleaned up the medicinal herbs they had dug out.
After the village quieted down, the two of them returned to the interspace with the items.
Later that night, the two of them slaughtered five sheep, two cows, and a donkey. They washed up and went to bed together.
In the middle of the night, Gu Chengrui heard Zhou Yings fearful sleep-talk and immediately shook her awake. “Baby, wake up. Youre dreaming. Theres nothing to be afraid of.”
Zhou Ying was stunned for a moment when she woke up. She returned to her senses and hugged him. She responded by nestling into his arms to calm her emotions.
Seeing this, Gu Chengrui hugged her in his arms. After tidying her messy hair, he patted her back and asked softly, “What did you dream of just now Tell me. Itll be fine once you say it out.”
“I dreamed of a great disaster. At one moment, there were a thousand miles of barren land with starving people everywhere. Another moment, it was the roar of a huge flood. In short, it was very terrifying.
“In the end, I even dreamt of people exchanging children for food. It was so frightening to see. ” Zhou Ying replied with a heavy tone.
Gu Chengruis heart skipped a beat when he heard that. He remembered that Doctor Luo had mentioned the drought in the North.
Could it be that she was receiving some sort of warning from the strange dreams she had
If it was in the past, he might have found this ridiculous. But with their transmigration and the inexplicable interspace she had, he couldnt help but think more about it.

“Dont overthink about it too much. Its just a dream. If youre feeling uneasy, just plant more sweet potatoes,” he said in a relaxed tone.
“Well, its better to be prepared.” Zhou Ying nodded in agreement. At the same time, she was planning to plant all the white sweet potatoes in any available space in her interspace.
After this discussion, neither of them could fall asleep. It was almost 5:30. The two did not lie down again, instead getting up and going outside for some exercise.
After thoroughly stretching their muscles and joints, the two packed up the medicinal herbs they had dug up in the past two days and carried them out of the interspace.
After a simple breakfast, the sky was bright, and the two of them carried their things down the mountain.
When they reached the foot of the mountain, they happened to see Tian Dawang pushing an empty cart into town.
“Mr. Tian!” Gu Chengrui immediately went forward to greet him. “What are you doing so early in the morning”
“Havent we started harvesting cabbages recently Ill go to the farm at the edge of the town to help out for two days.” After Tian Jiawang finished speaking, he looked at the sackcloth bags on their backs and said, “You guys are going to town too Put your things in the cart. Ill give you a ride on the way.”
“Thank you, Mr. Tian.” After Gu Chengrui thanked him, he put his sack into the cart. Then, he took the sack from Zhou Yings and put it on the cart as well.
Of course, they didnt just stand there and watch but helped him push the cart on each side.
The three of them chatted as they walked into town.
At the same time, the couple also found that only two rooms were available in the village.
One was a house owned by a widow with a child that was not suitable for rent.
The other household was the sixth uncle of the Gu family, which was the neighbor of the Gu family house they left. The two of them immediately rejected the idea.
First, it was too close to the Gu family, and there might be conflicts.
The other one was because of the sixth aunt of the Gu family, Madam Qian. She was a famous gossip in the village. Even a fart from them would spread throughout the village if they lived with her.
As for the other empty houses, they were all so worn down that no one could live in them.
When they arrived at the towns entrance, the couple carried the medicinal herbs on their backs and bade farewell to Tian Dawang before heading to the Luos Clinic.
