Li Huairou and Luo Xingtang talked for a long time. As for what they said, no one knew.
It was just that, after Luo Xingtang came back, he didn’t leave immediately. Instead, he gently asked Luo Huaishan, “Since you’re here, do you want to spend more time in the mountain city? There’s no need to worry about home.”
Luo Huaishan thought for a while, then shook her head. “No need. I finished sightseeing yesterday. Didn’t Mother enroll me in summer classes? I have to finish my summer homework before class starts, and don’t I have to prepare for the new semester?”
Luo Xingtang carefully observed Luo Huaishan’s expression, making sure that what she said was sincere and not forced. He felt relieved. After thinking about it, he said, “How about this. Wait for National Day, and I’ll go with you to the mountain city again, okay?”
Luo Huaishan was a little surprised. She looked at Luo Xingtang.
Luo Xingtang did not avoid his mistakes. “It was my fault before. I will correct it in the future.”
Luo Xingtang did not say what was wrong, but Luo Huaishan still understood.
Her eyes were slowly reddening. She knew that, whether it was her brother, her parents, or the Luo family, all of them had started out for her own good. Although their methods made her feel unhappy and uncomfortable, the restrained Luo Huaishan never spoke out.
But her sister had noticed her grievances, so she must have been talking to her brother just now. That’s why her brother had said that.
Luo Xingtang saw that Luo Huaishan was crying, though not as hysterically as Xinyu—just weeping silently. This made him feel even more at a loss. “A-Shan, don’t cry. It was all my fault, and now I’m apologizing to you. It won’t happen in the future. Don’t cry.”
Then he hurriedly looked at Li Huairou and asked for help.
Li Huairou shrugged. She didn’t have time right now; she was going to coax her younger sister.
Li Xinyu stared at Luo Xingtang. Sure enough, it wasn’t the same if it wasn’t a biological sibling. When she was crying in the past, he’d always looked impatient and walked away. Now that Luo Huaishan was crying, look at his anguished expression!
Li Huairou walked over and stroked Li Xinyu’s hair. “Would you like to go out and have some fun before cram school starts?”
Li Xinyu immediately became energetic. “Where to?
“We can’t go too far. How about the three gorges of the Yangzi River?” Li Huairou said.
Li Xinyu nodded vigorously. “Okay, okay, when are we going to leave?”
“Go back and pack up, and we’ll leave tomorrow. We won’t join the tour group. We’ll go by ourselves.”
“Then, will Mom and Dad go? Shall we go together?” Li Xinyu said after thinking about it.
“Fine. If you can persuade them to come together, of course that’ll be good,” Li Huairou said, but she also knew that most of the time, her parents wouldn’t want to go.
Sure enough, Papa and Mama Li refused to go.
Seeing that Luo Huaishan was a little moved, Luo Xingtang hesitated over and over. “It doesn’t matter if you finish your homework later. Let’s go play together!”
But before Luo Huaishan could agree, Luo Xingtang received a call from his family. Madam Luo was ill, and the family had told them to quickly go back.
Luo Xingtang and Luo Huaishan could only immediately leave for the airport and return home.
Reluctantly sending Luo Huaishan away, Papa Li and Mama Li were only depressed for a while and went back to open the restaurant before Li Xinyu could comfort them. A-Shan said that she’d come back to see them on National Day. In addition, Xinyu and A-Shan got along very well, so they had nothing to worry about. It was better to make more money; it would also give them the confidence to live without being at the whim of their husband’s side of the family in the future.
Li Huairou patted Li Xinyu on the shoulder. “Go back and pack your luggage. We’ll leave tomorrow.”
But Li Xinyu didn’t want to go that much. “Everyone isn’t going, so it’ll just be the two of us. It’s boring. I also have to go back and do my homework, then preview the new semester’s lessons!”
Then she went to the restaurant with her head held high and her schoolbag in her arms, and she started to do her summer homework.
Li Huairou hesitated to speak, but she could tell that Xinyu was on par with A-Shan. Although, thinking of their IQ and grades, Li Huairou sighed helplessly. Well, this should be healthy competition, right?
Papa Li and Mama Li didn’t think too much about Li Xinyu’s sudden change of heart. It was a great relief for her to immerse herself in doing summer homework instead of going out to play. Parents were always fond of children who loved to learn. So, their words of praise came out endlessly, and they brought out some food from the kitchen after a while.
Li Huairou counted. In just half a day, Li Xinyu had already eaten a plate of mahua, a plate of chicken feet, a plate of pig trotters, a bowl of hot-and-sour noodles, and a bowl of Chongqing noodles.
[Mahua (麻花), or fried dough twist, is a Chinese dough twist that is fried in peanut oil]
According to this trend, Li Xinyu would become fat as a piglet halfway through summer vacation. After school started, her classmates wouldn’t be able to recognize her anymore.
Li Huairou thought that it was still necessary for her to run every morning.
Luo Huaishan and Luo Xingtang got off the plane in a hurry, called to ask which hospital their grandma was in, only to find out when they got home that she wasn’t sick at all. The reason why she was sick was just to trick them into coming back quickly.
Luo Xingtang sighed and glanced at Luo Huaishan. “A-Shan, I will have a good chat with grandma.”
Luo Huaishan shook her head. “No need.”
She’d been back to the Luo house for a while, and she knew her grandma’s temperament. Love desired life, and evil desired death. How much her grandma had loved Xinyu before! Now she hated Xinyu, even hated the Li family. The whole Luo family was acting accordingly. Besides, they didn’t like the Li family either, and they didn’t like being too close to the Li family.
[爱之欲其生恶之欲其死 refers to treating people with extreme personal like and dislike]
“A-Shan!” Luo Xingtang felt distressed.
“It’s okay, Brother. I’m very happy now,” Luo Huaishan said with a smile. Even if they couldn’t be together all the time, she knew that her parents and elder sister were always there, and they all loved her. One day, she’d be able to break away from the shackles of the family and live the life she wanted to live.
Grandma Luo was truly very angry. When Luo Huaishan came in through the door, she still had a straight face on and her mind made up. She wanted her granddaughter to admit her mistake, but when Luo Huaishan sat beside her and held her hand, and she was sweetly called “Grandma!”, Grandma Luo couldn’t hold on anymore.
“You! You are too bold. You ran away without saying a word. You know that your grandma was worried to death,” Grandma Luo said angrily.
Luo Huaishan leaned on Grandma Luo’s chest. “Grandma, I just wanted to see if they were doing well,” Luo Huaishan said outright, without hiding anything.
“Now that you’ve seen them, do you feel relieved?” Grandma Luo said.
“Yes, I feel relieved. I won’t run around anymore,” Luo Huaishan said softly.
“Well, good child!” Grandma Luo said helplessly as she stroked Luo Huaishan’s hair. A-Shan. As the name suggested, this kindness was exactly the same as that of her A-Guo. It would be wonderful if her A-Guo could live and grow up well.
Luo Xinhe came in with the bird’s nest soup, but she didn’t see any tension, so she felt a little disappointed. “Grandma. A-Shan is back—are you hungry? Auntie Zhang stewed bird’s nest. I’ll bring you another bowl.”
Luo Huaishan raised her head. “Sister, there’s no need to bother. Brother and I already ate on the plane.”
Luo Xinhe came over with the bird’s nest soup. Luo Huaishan wanted to get up and give up her seat, but Grandma Luo said, “Have A-Shan feed me.”
Luo Xinhe was a little embarrassed.
Luo Huaishan frowned slightly, but upon seeing Grandma Luo’s stubborn face, the others in the room didn’t speak, so Luo Huaishan could only look at Luo Xinhe apologetically.
Luo Xinhe smiled at her, handed the bowl to Luo Huaishan, and got up and stood aside.
Luo Huaishan held the bowl, feeding Grandma Luo spoonful by spoonful and talking to her from time to time, making Grandma Luo laugh heartily.
“The mountain city is really that fun?” After Grandma Luo finished a bowl of bird’s nest soup, Luo Huashan carefully wiped Grandma Luo’s mouth with a tissue.
“Well, it was very interesting. The mountain is a city, and the city is a mountain. The scenery is beautiful, and there are many delicious foods. It’s a good place with outstanding people,” Luo Huaishan said with a smile.
“If it’s really that fun, let’s go there during National Day,” Grandma Luo said with a light smile.
Luo Huaishan’s eyes widened in surprise. She found that Grandma Luo was not just joking. She’d really had such a thought.
“Thank you, Grandma!” Luo Huaishan threw herself into Grandma Luo’s arms.
Grandma Luo hugged her granddaughter and smiled.
Luo Xingtang couldn’t believe his ears, and the same went for Luo Xinhe. This matter had just passed so lightly. Not only was their grandma not angry, but she’d also said that she wanted to go to the mountain city with A-Shan.
After Papa Luo and Mama Luo found out, they had no other thoughts. Instead, they were very happy. In fact, they also missed Xinyu very much. It was just because of Grandma Luo that they dared not reveal it. Now that Grandma Luo’s attitude had relaxed, they may also be able to meet Xinyu.
As for the rest of the Luo family, they had different thoughts, but they also knew that Grandma Luo loved her granddaughter. Otherwise, Luo Xinhe would not have been taken into the Luo family. They had quite a few illegitimate children from the first and second son, but because Madam Luo paid special attention to rules, Luo Xinhe was the only one who the Luo family had truly recognized.
This was the case for any illegitimate children, let alone the Luo family’s direct relatives.
They were all used to it, as long as Madam Luo was happy.
From that day on, Luo Huaishan began to openly contact Li Huairou. Not by letter, but by phone.
Of course, the frequency of their calls was not very high—once a week—and the duration never exceeded ten minutes.
Papa Luo and Mama Luo didn’t speak at first, just sitting and listening, but then they couldn’t help it and said a few words to Li Xinyu. When they found that Madam Luo was not angry, they began to say a few words.
Li Xinyu was in a good mood recently. Every morning she went for a run with her sister, and then walked around the streets to have breakfast. She continued to make up lessons in the afternoon, do homework in the restaurant at night, and eat delicious food. She’d go home at night and have supper.
She also talked to her adoptive parents. Knowing that they still missed her, she was even happier.
Such a good mood lasted until halfway through the summer vacation.
She happened to pass by a shop, looked back, and found herself in the window mirror. And then her eyes widened in horror. That turned out to be her?
Then, Li Xinyu tremblingly went to a pharmacy, stood tremblingly in front of the scale, took a deep breath, stood up resolutely, and watched the pointer tremblingly stop at 64.
[64 kilograms = 141 pounds]
Li Xinyu couldn’t believe her eyes. She rubbed them and looked again. It was still 64.
Li Xinyu jumped down from the scale, put her school bag aside, took off her hat, keys, etc., took another deep breath, stood up, and the pointer stopped at 62!
Li Xinyu couldn’t bear it any longer, and she burst into tears.
