The teenager continued, " alright, alright, its just a roof after all. The roof you built just now was too thin and would be easily damaged by heavy rain later at night. Ill help you to build a thicker one."
As the onlookers saw that the incident had ended, they dispersed.
The teenager was rather responsible as he immediately started to gather those dried weeds which were blown away. As he practiced wood techniques, he was good at gathering those dried weeds and had gathered a large bulk within an hour.
He should be the heir of a rich family, and thus he was neither good at doing farm work nor any heavy labor works such as building houses.
After he gathered the dried weeds, he did not know how to tie them into bundles.
The bundle he tried to tie was rather irregular and failed to work. Even though he tried more than 10 times, the result was still the same, and he did not like it either.
The teenager did not know which type of weeds were suitable to be used as the thatched roof as he gathered many brambles which pricked his hands.
He also finally realized the hardship in building a roof and that it was not easy to build a house.
Gu Xijiu did not pay attention to him at the beginning so that he could do it on his own while she does her stuff.
She was paving the ground with stones. The stones were different from ordinary stones as they had beautiful patterns which looked like marbles. Moreover, the surface chiseled by the mussel was smooth and regular, and thus the pavement looked great.
After she was done, the teenager had not finished bundling the weeds yet, so she went to take a look.
The teenager was rather irascible as he angrily said when he saw she was coming, "Why are you coming here? Im finishing soon. Ouch"
Carelessly, he was pricked by the thorn among the dry weeds, and a drop of blood oozed out from his finger.
"This brambles cant be bundled together." Gu Xijiu took out the brambles.
The teenager was obviously at his rebellious stage, "Are you pitying me and are afraid that Id be pricked? I dont need your kindness"
Gu Xijiu interrupted, "Why should I pity you? With these brambles in the bundle, it would have gaps in my roof and water would leak through when it rains!"
The teenager choked.
Gu Xijiu ignored him and tied up the bundles. She was quick and good at bundling.
The young face of the teenager looked unconvinced, but he quietly imitated Gu Xijius method when he started bundling again.
The teenager was indeed clever and fast at learning. After about 15 minutes, he had learned and managed to tie a proper one. He secretly compared his to Gu Xijius and found out that it was as good as hers.
He immediately regained his confidence and intentionally showed it to Gu Xijiu, "Im pretty good, huh?"
His face looked proud, but his eyes showed that he was still uncertain and unconfident.
Gu Xijiu took his bundle to take a look, "Average."
"Huh, how could it be average? The bundle I tied should be the best." Though he said so, he was excited when he received confirmation from Gu Xijiu and immediately continued bundling again.
As he had learned the method, he was getting faster and more confident.
Gu Xijius was slightly moved.
The teenager was wearing a light blue robe and belt, so Gu Xijiu knew that he was from the Tianju Halls Liuyun Class based on his uniform.
As the Tianju Hall was founded to gather all elites from all over the land, they were very particular over specialization and exclusiveness. Therefore, there were not many students.
