Time passed unhurriedly.
The end of the semester and the long summer vacation had begun.
Li Xinyu’s grades improved again, and she was now the eleventh from the bottom in her class. Li Huairou attended her parent-teacher conference. Papa Li and Mama Li were humble people and had a natural fear of teachers. They couldn’t utter a word upon seeing the teacher. So, only Li Huairou could take care of this occasion.
The teacher had a good discussion with Li Huairou about Li Xinyu’s grades. The teacher said that Li Xinyu was working very hard, and her academic performance had been rising, so she must continue to maintain this and work hard. Her parents should give their full cooperation as well. If they had the ability to do it, Li Xinyu could take remedial classes during summer vacation and try to make up for areas where she was lagging.
After coming out of the school building, Li Huairou told Li Xinyu what the teacher meant. Li Xinyu wanted to attend the remedial classes. She was very partial to some subjects; she had no problem with rote memorization of liberal arts subjects, except when it came to the sciences. Her English was also very bad, although second-year students would be able to choose between liberal arts and science classes at the beginning of the year. Mathematics and English alone were the two things that were dragging her down to death.
Li Xinyu knew that her foundation was poor, but she still wanted to work hard. Everyone in the family was living wholeheartedly, and she should do so in kind.
“Alright, as long as you want to learn, the rest is not a problem. If the foundation is poor, then we will start from junior high to make up for it. That’s right, do you have any classmates who know a tutor? Or, maybe we could go to the streets to look for one?” Li Huairou said.
“Lan Lan knows one. She’s in a cram school and said that the teacher teaches pretty well. They have one-on-one sessions and one-on-two sessions, but it’s a bit expensive.” Li Xinyu was a little embarrassed.
“Why not spend the money you earn? You just study hard and don’t worry about money,” Li Huairou said with a smile.
Then she looked up and saw a familiar person.
“A-Shan?” Li Huairou was quite surprised. What’s wrong with her? She came alone?
Li Xinyu also looked up in surprise, and saw Luo Huaishan dragging a suitcase by herself, standing not far away, looking at them.
Li Huairou took Li Xinyu’s hand and greeted her. “A-Shan, why are you here? You came alone? What are you doing here?”
Luo Huaishan had actually gotten a little jealous when she saw her sister getting along with Li Xinyu. But now, she heard the concern and worry in Li Huairou’s words, and she felt better again. She was still in her sister’s heart.
Li Xinyu looked Luo Huaishan up and down, a little dissatisfied. What? Do you want to come back and grab my sister?
“I saw the letter you sent me. My school has summer vacation early, so I came to see you, mom, and dad.” Luo Huaishan would not lie; she told the truth.
The housekeeper had taken away the old newspapers that were not needed at home, but the string was loose and the newspapers had fallen to the ground. When she helped pick them up, she found a letter in the newspapers, one that had been sent to her by her sister. From the date, it was from not long after she’d returned to the Luo family.
She tucked the letter away without saying a word, only starting to read it after returning to her room. Only then did she learn that the Li family had returned to their hometown.
The letter said that everything at home should have been returned, telling her not to worry about it. She should take good care of herself and pay attention to her life-work balance.
Luo Huaishan carefully put the letter away, but the next day, she found that it was missing. She didn’t say anything. She’d memorized the address on the letter.
So, after her exam, without saying a word to anyone, she took her suitcase by herself and got on a plane to the mountain city.
Li Huairou didn’t blame her, just pinched her braid and said, “Do you know your brother’s phone number? Give it to me.”
Luo Huaishan hummed and gave Luo Xingtang’s number to Li Huairou.
Li Huairou found a public phone booth and called Luo Xingtang.
“Yes, A-Shan is with me. I invited her out to have fun. Well, okay, I’ll take good care of her.” In a few words, Li Huairou clearly explained the ins and outs of the matter and then hung up the phone.
“Let’s go. I’ll take you to eat some delicious food.” Li Huairou firmly believed that delicious food could solve most of the troubles in the world.
During the meal, Li Xinyu learned that Luo Huaishan had run away from home. She immediately imagined a big drama, and she also admired Luo Huaishan. The Luo family had strict rules. No matter how self-willed she was, she wouldn’t have dared to run away from home! “I didn’t see that you were so awesome!” Then she looked at Li Huairou excitedly. “Sis, when Luo Xingtang answered the phone, was he angry? What about Madam? Is she angry?”
Li Huairou looked helplessly at Li Xinyu, who was looking to stir up trouble. “They’re not angry, just worried.”
Then she looked at Luo Huaishan, who was eating noodles with her head down. “Are you hungry? Let’s have a piece of brown sugar rice cake, it’ll be delicious.”
Luo Huaishan agreed. Her sister was still tolerating her as before.
Li Xinyu curled her lips and ate two pieces of brown sugar rice cakes. She choked and rolled her eyes.
Li Huairou brought Luo Huaishan back to the restaurant, which was was just starting to receive the guests. Li Huairou didn’t have the time to say anything—she rolled up her sleeves and started to help out. Luo Huaishan put her luggage aside and started to help.
Li Xinyu was stunned. Not to be outdone, she went to the door to greet the guests.
After this wave of guests left, they finally had time to rest for a while.
Papa Li came out of the kitchen and was stunned when he saw Luo Huaishan. “A—A-Shan! What are you doing here?”
Mama Li heard the voices and ran out in a hurry. The moment she saw Luo Huaishan, her eyes reddened. “A-Shan, you—what are you doing here? Is it that?” Is it that you felt wronged or bullied at the Luo house? But Mama Li didn’t dare to say the following words.
Li Huairou immediately understood who had inherited Li Xinyu’s brain power.
“A-Shan is on summer vacation, and she came to see us. Her brother still has a class that he hasn’t attended, so he’ll be arriving tomorrow.” Li Huairou immediately explained in a few clear words, so as to avoid misunderstanding. Luo Huaishan nodded. “I missed you.”
Mama Li immediately started to cry. She wanted to go forward to hug Luo Huaishan, but seeing that she was covered in oil, she stopped in her tracks. Papa Li did the same, standing there and wiping away his tears.
Without hesitation, Luo Huaishan stepped forward to gently hug Mama Li, comforting Mama Li softly.
Seeing this, Li Xinyu felt a little uncomfortable.
Li Huairou hugged her. “What’s the matter? Are you jealous? Come on, sis’s gonna hug you!”
Li Xinyu snorted, neither denying nor admitting anything.
“Come now, this is also human nature. Believe it or not, your adoptive parents must look like this when they see you next. Even if there is no blood relationship, you’ve had a relationship for more than ten years. How can it be lost overnight? If you could really throw it away completely, that would be terrible!” Li Huairou carefully comforted.
“You really feel that way?” Li Xinyu suddenly asked in a low voice.
“Of course! That’s human nature.” Li Huairou’s tone was firm.
Li Xinyu breathed a little sigh of relief. Mom and Dad were so nice to her, but she still thought about her adoptive parents.
Li Huairou smiled.
Over there, Mama Li also let go of Luo Huaishan, took her hand, and sat down, asking her how she was doing, did she eat well, did she sleep well? How about studying?
Luo Huaishan answered the questions, one after another.
Mama Li felt relieved. Then she came to her senses, looked at Li Xinyu, and found that she was whispering something to Li Huairou with a smile on her face. There were no unhappy faces. Mama Li breathed a sigh of relief.
Luo Huaishan was a kind and considerate girl. She could understand her adoptive mother’s embarassment, and she took the initiative to let go of her hand.
On their side, Li Huairou had coaxed Li Xinyu well, patting Li Xinyu, and motioned for her to speak.
Li Xinyu walked over. “Mom, Dad, A-Shan doesn’t come often. Let’s not open the restaurant today, shall we? Let’s go sightseeing as a family. We’ve been back for so long, yet we haven’t had time to sightsee!”
Luo Huaishan’s eyes lit up. Her brother would come tomorrow. This was the last chance for her to spend time with her family!
Papa Li and Mama Li glanced at each other, and they also saw the expectation in their two children’s eyes. Papa Li nodded heavily. “Alright, let’s close the restaurant!”
After half an hour, the family changed their clothes and went out.
They went to many places, including Hongya Cave, Ciqikou, and Eling Park. Of course, most of the time, they got lost. It was because the mountain city was so magical—if you took a wrong fork, you may have to make a detour for over half an hour.
In the evening, they ate authentic Chongqing hotpot, with tears coming out because of the hotpot.
But even so, they continued to eat while crying.
They finally went to Chaoyangmen Wharf, bathed in the river wind.
Luo Huaishan was very happy today. She thought that mountain city was her favorite city. In the future, she wanted to come to the mountain city to settle down.
“Were you happy today?” Li Huairou asked softly, walking to her side.
Luo Huaishan nodded. “Yes!” Then she leaned her head on Li Huairou’s shoulder. “Sister, I missed you so much!”
Li Huairou stroked her hair. “Good boy!”
Li Xinyu, who was pulling on Papa Li to make him talk, saw this. She ran over in a hurry. She didn’t have the nerve to pull Luo Huaishan away, but just grabbed Li Huairou’s other arm and leaned her head against it. This is my sister! Biologically!
Luo Huaishan was childish, for once. She didn’t get up and still leaned firmly on Li Huairou’s shoulder.
Seeing this, Li Xinyu moved closer.
On Li Huairou’s shoulders leaned two big mountains, helpless and heavy.
Papa Li and Mama Li watched with a smile, with no intentions of making a rescue. Such a scene was beyond their wildest dreams.
But the happy times were always short, and Luo Xingtang came early the next morning.
When Luo Huaishan saw him, she lowered her head.
Luo Xingtang didn’t make any accusations, simply gently rubbing his younger sister’s hair and saying to Li Huairou, “I’m sorry.”
Li Huairou sighed. She needed to have a discussion with Luo Xingtang.
“I wonder if it’s convenient to take a moment to talk?” Li Huairou said.
Luo Xingtang looked at this simply dressed, ordinary-looking woman who was inexplicably trustworthy. He hadn’t ignored the gleam in A-Shan’s eyes and the smile on her face when she was talking to her just now. This was what she’d never had in the Luo family.
There was also Li Xinyu, who was completely different from the pampered and willful girl she’d been with the Luo family.
“Okay,” Luo Xingtang agreed after hesitation. A-Shan was his biological younger sister. Although the nurse had negligent, it had a lot to do with him. If it wasn’t for him, who’d suddenly wanted to see his sister and bumped into the shelf next to her, the nurse wouldn’t have picked up the wrong sister in a panic. Consequently, his younger sister had suffered for so many years outside.
Although many years had passed and no one had linked these two incidents together, Luo Xingtang felt that she was his own responsibility after he learned the truth. He swore that they would take good care of her, protect her, and not let her suffer any grievances.
But now, it seemed that he’d failed.
