Chapter 1344: Huo Mian*s Wishes 5

Having known her for so many years, Qin Chu clearly understood Huo Mian's personality#

When she set her mind on something, it couldn't be changed by anyone. Qin Chu felt bad for his wife, so when Huo Mian took three more steps and was about to kneel down again, Qin Chu knelt down next to her#

Huo Mian turned around surprised. "Honey#"

"I'm with you. No matter what you do, I will do it with you." Qin Chu looked at Huo Mian lovingly.

Qin Chu was an atheist. He didn't believe in the heavens, the earth, the ghosts, or gods. But he believed in Huo Mian.

As long as it was something Huo Mian had set her mind on doing, he was willing to accompany her.

Going up the 1,700 steps while kneeling down every three steps was easier said than done.

Huo Mian was so touched#

It was her idea to come to Ming Jue Temple this time, so she didn't want Qin Chu to do what she was doing.

But she also knew Qin Chu's personality. Whatever he set his mind on could not be changed by anyone either.

The couple was finally slowly approaching the top of the stairs in freezing weather.

People who occasionally passed by them all looked at them in amazement.

Since they were not ascetic monks, there was no need for them to worship Buddha in such a harsh way by kneeling down every three steps.

After walking up for what seemed like a really long time#

Huo Mian felt exhausted, but she managed to press on for the sake of her wishes#

Qin Chu noticed that Huo Mian was low on energy and held her tightly. Together, they slowly moved up one step after another.

It took them five hours to get to the top of the mountain#

They arrived in the morning and it was already the afternoon; not a lot of ordinary people had this kind of perseverance.

It was good that Huo Mian was patient, with the support from Qin Chu next to her...

After the two of them arrived at the top of the mountain, they suddenly felt unconstrained#

Both of Huo Mian's legs were shaking and she couldn't even stand#

There was still about one kilometer from the mountain top to the temple...

Qin Chu immediately held Huo Mian up#

"Honey, let me down. I can walk by myself." Huo Mian was worried about Qin Chu and didn't want him to carry her since he was probably just as tired as she was.

Why would he make himself more tired?

But no matter how much Huo Mian complained, Qin Chu remained silent and carried her all the way to the door of the temple.

Then, they took the free incense given outside the temple and kneeled down and worshipped the Buddhas, one by one. 

Huo Mian donated several hundred yuan to each of the offering boxes.

Then, they walked up to the wishing tree#

The centuries-old tree stood there with its gorgeous figure, providing the only green in such a cold climate#

On the branches were countless red wishing ribbons#

Huo Mian spent 20 yuan for two. She handed one over to Qin Chu while keeping one for herself.

"Let's start writing. They say you can make three wishes in front of the Buddha#" Huo Mian smiled, just like a little girl.

Then she hid to the side and started writing slowly#

Qin Chu also smiled but without a word, walked over to the other side with the ribbon.

Not long after, they both went back under the tree with their wishing ribbons.

"Honey, what did you write?" Huo Mian was curious and wanted to see Qin Chu's wishing ribbon.

"I thought wishes won't work if others see it." Qin Chu smiled gently.

"Okay# Fine# Mr. Qin, I won't look. Let's go tie them to the branches," Huo Mian said with a pout.

So that her ribbon would be high on top, Huo Mian even climbed up the tree. Luckily the tree wasn't tall, otherwise#

Qin Chu simply tied his somewhere where there were fewer ribbons.

"Where are we going now?" Qin Chu held Huo Mian's hand and gently asked.

"I want to go draw a fortune stick." Huo Mian held Qin Chu coquettishly.
