There was nothing inside. Charles touched his chin. He remembered there was one. Why was it missing? Then he remembered that last time he thought it was useless to put it inside, so he asked someone to take it out.

"What should we do?" Natalie asked.

"It doesn't matter. I'll call someone to drag the car back and pick us up." Charles went back to the car and took his phone. When he was about to dial the number, he found that there was no signal. He shouted at Natalie, "My phone has no signal. What about yours?"

Natalie took out her phone from her pocket and looked at it. "Mine doesn't have any signal either. Why was there signal in the mountain when I came last time?"

"What should we do?"

"If I had known it earlier, I wouldn't have taken you to come up." Natalie said guiltily, Charles thought for a while and said, "I saw a house at the foot of the mountain when we came up just now. Let's go down and ask."

Natalie nodded.

The two of them had walked for more than half an hour, but they still didn't see the house.

Wearing a pair of high-heeled shoes, Natalie felt a sharp pain in her feet. Carelessly she stepped on a stone, her foot tilted to one side, and then she knelt down.

"Ah!". Natalie cried. Her knees were broken and bleeding.

Hearing the voice, Charles turned around in a hurry and helped her up to sit on a big stone next to him. He asked with concern, "How are you? Does it hurt?"

Biting her lips, Natalie shook her head. Tears were welling up in her eyes. She tried hard to hold them back.

Seeing that Charles was a little distressed. He took off her shoe, looked at her red and swollen ankle and said, "How can't it hurt." He touched it with his hand, and Natalie gasped in pain.

"It hurts." Natalie cried out in grievance.

Charles found that her toes were also rubbed, so he carefully put the shoes back on her. Squatting in front of her, he said, "Come on, I'll carry you."

Natalie waved her hand and said, "No, thanks. I can walk myself." She was about to stand up.

"How long do you think it will take us to reach the foot of the mountain if you are like this now? Don't waste my time."

After hesitating for a long time, Natalie lay on his back awkwardly. Charles carried her on his back and continued to walk forward according to the route by which they came.

'His back is very broad and gives a sense of security. Anyone who marries Charles will be really happy, ' Natalie thought to herself.

Charles carried her on his back for about more than 20 minutes. Then Natalie shouted, "There, there is a house over there."

Following the direction she pointed, he saw a slightly shabby house.

The two of them came to the outside of the house. Natalie came down from his back. Afraid that she would fall, Charles held her with his hands.

Natalie looked around but didn't see anyone. She shouted, "Anybody there? Is anybody there?" Seeing that no one answered, Natalie raised her voice and asked, "Is there anyone here?"

An old woman with slightly pale hair came out of the room and asked, "Who is it? Who wants to see me. "

Natalie turned around and limped towards her. In a sweet voice, she said, "Grandma, we came to the mountain for fun. The tire was flat on the road, and there was no signal in the mountain. Can we borrow a phone from you?"

The old lady took a look at Natalie, who was very beautiful. She pointed at the top of a mountain and said, "It rained heavily a few days ago, and the signal tower was broken by thunder. It is under repair these two days. Of course there is no signal."

"Is there any signal nearby?"

The old lady shook her head and said, "There's no signal in this area 10 miles around. It rained heavily the other day! The road there was blocked by the landslide. Vehicles couldn't get into the mountain, so they had to walk. The signal tower can't be repaired until the day after tomorrow at the earliest. "

"Ah!" Natalie was a little desperate. She looked at Charles and asked, "What should we do?"

Charles didn't answer her. When they came up this morning, they had driven for about more than 30 minutes in the suburbs. There weren't many cars on the road. If he carried her down the mountain, it would be dark already. Not to mention looking for a car.

When he was thinking, he heard Natalie say to the old woman, "Grandma, can we stay here for one night? It will be dark soon. I can't walk because I sprained my ankle. There are no other families nearby, grandma!"

The old lady looked at her and then looked at the man behind her, hesitating.

Afraid that she wouldn't agree, Natalie said in a hurry, "Grandma, don't worry. We won't be freeloaders. We can pay you the accommodation fee."

The old lady smiled with her hands clasped behind her back. "There's no need for you to pay for the accommodation. I stay at home alone. My son went out to work with his wife not long after he got married. There is only one room in the house. It's my son's wedding room. If you don't mind, you can stay here. "

With joy in her heart, Natalie said in a hurry, "I don't mind. I just wan

t to have a place to live. Grandma, you are so kind, just like my own grandma. If only my grandma was still alive." She held the old lady's hand and sighed.

The old lady raised her hand and patted on her shoulder, as if comforting her. She was too old to know how long she could live. Her son had been in his forties, but she hadn't seen a grandson. The old lady felt a pang of pain in her heart and found the girl in front of her even more approachable.

"You must be tired after going down the mountain. Come in and have a seat. I'll get you some hot water to wash your faces." Then she turned around and went to the kitchen.

Natalie turned around and gave a smile to Charles, making a victory gesture.

Charles returned her a smile, fetched a stool and the two sat down in front of the door.

Looking at the various grains hanging under the eaves, Natalie asked, "You must have never seen these before."

"What?" Charles turned around and asked.

Natalie pointed at those stuff over their head, and Charles shook his head. How could he have seen these? But he had eaten most of them.

"When I was a child, my grandmother asked me to do some farm work for her after school. It was not easy for me to have a good rest but had to help her with the work. I hated her so much at that time. So every time she called me, I would call her old woman and curse her to die quickly in my heart. Later when I was in junior high school, my grandma really died suddenly. "

Speaking of this, Natalie choked with sobs. She rubbed her sore nose and continued, "That's why I always blamed myself at that time. I felt that my grandmother died because of me." When grandma died, I was with her. She asked everyone to leave except me. She secretly gave me all the money she had saved for a long time. At that time, I didn't know anything and just cried. Not long after, my father took me to the city. Later I knew that grandma had brain cancer at that time, and she endured it and didn't tell anyone. "

As soon as she finished her words, Natalie's tears kept running down like rain. Until now, she still felt guilty. If only she could be more considerate.

Patting her back, Charles listened quietly to her story.

"Your grandmother must love you very much." Charles said sadly.

Natalie nodded her head.

'It was good to have such a family who loved you so much.' Charles hadn't received much care since he was a child.

The old lady came out with hot water. The kitchen was not far from the living room, so she also heard some. Looking at the crying girl, she felt sorry for her.

"Come and wash your face and feet. By the way, deal with the wound on your knees. Or you may get infected." The old man put the water in front of them and handed them a brand-new towel.

Natalie took the towel and thanked the old lay. After washing her face, she handed the towel to Charles.

Stunned, Charles washed his face as she did, handed the towel to the old lady beside him and thanked her. It was the first time in his life that he had washed his face in this way. You poured the water into a basin and everyone washed together. When he was thinking, Natalie had poured the water into another basin and put her feet in it. She sighed happily, "It's so comfortable."

She looked at him and smiled, "Try it."

Charles nodded, took off his shoes and put his feet in the basin. He had never felt it was so comfortable to wash his feet before.

"Lift your feet. I'll get you some hot water." The old lady came over with a water scoop in her hand and handed them a towel to wipe their feet.

The two of them lifted their feet at the same time and smiled at each other.

"You've been walking on the mountain road for such a long time. Soaking in it for a while will help you relax." The old lady said with a smile.

"Thank you, grandma. You are like my real grandma." Natalie said with a naughty smile.

The old lady chuckled and looked amiable.

"Are you hungry? I'll make some food for you. Is there anything you like to eat in particular?" The old lady asked.

"No matter what grandma makes, we will both like it." Natalie said naughtily. She had been hungry for a long time.

The old lady laughed and went into the kitchen.

"Natalie."

Natalie paused for a while and looked at him in a daze.

"Thank you." He said what he wanted to say today.

As time goes by, the feeling of Charles for Natalie began to change slowly. However, at this moment, Natalie's mind was full of Carter. 'I thought I could go back in the afternoon, but now I even don't know if I can go back tomorrow. I don't know what Carter is doing this time. If I had known it earlier, I should have sent him a message.'

It was getting dark. The old lady had already prepared dinner. There was only a normal bowl of noodles, fried eggs and a few pickles. The three of them sat around a small table, talking and laughing. Natalie was active, and the old lady was amused by her.

Sleeping after dinner was the biggest problem. Natalie wanted to sleep with the old granny, but her bed was too small to sleep for two people.
