“I’m almost scared to death.” Sister Lin patted her chest and sighed, “I thought you did something. Stupid boy, how can anyone not be a bit troubled? Isn’t Sister Lin like this too? The days are long! You are a big man, what do you cry for! Be brave and wipe away your tears. Isn’t there a saying that tomorrow will be better!”
As Sister Lin said, she tried to lift Dazhe’s body with both hands, and Dazhe sat down obediently.
“Sister Lin knows that you will get over it, no matter what the difficulty is.” Sister Lin said with a smile now, “I don’t have any relatives, and I can’t remember my husband and children; I’m always alone, and I have suffered for a long time. But Sister Lin can meet you, it is God’s greatest reward to me! So, Sister Lin actually regarded you as my own son. If there is something unhappy or uncomfortable, just tell Sister Lin, don’t be afraid.”
Dazhe bit his lips tightly.
“If you want to cry, just come to Sister Lin to cry. Don’t cry outside. How shameful is that?” Sister Lin grabbed Dazhe’s palm right now, “If you are tired, come here and treat this as your home. Okay, let’s eat.”
“Erm.” Dazhe whispered, “Let me pick some dishes for you.”
“En! Good boy.”
When he passed a dish, Dazhe’s hand holding the chopsticks instantly collapsed, turning into countless particles and disappearing into the air. Dazhe gritted his teeth and stretched out his other hand to catch the chopsticks, only then Sister Lin was not alarmed by that.
But his legs were also quickly dissipating at this time, and his body collapsed at a faster s[eed.
Sister Lin was eating. She didn’t know that the figure transformed by the soul light ball was hugging her tightly from behind at this time, slowly falling asleep… and also slowly dissipating.
“For some unknown reasons, Sister Lin suddenly feels like my whole family is here now.” Sister Lin subconsciously touched her face, “Why am I crying… Gan Jing? Gan Jing?”
“Sister Lin, I have to go…”
Little by little, Dazhe’s body had completely dispersed…
“So fast?” Sister Lin stood up hurriedly, “Let me see you off?”
“No… no need… I’m leaving.”
——Let Gan Jing be in your heart forever, just a Gan Jing … Mommy… Lin.
He then disappeared along the wind without leaving a trace.
“Gan Jing? Gan Jing?”
Sister Lin yelled a few times, but she did not get a response after all, “Has he gone? At least say a goodbye to me.”
She shook her head and sat down silently, eating the meal alone. The room was quiet.
“Why not…” Sister Lin suddenly put down her chopsticks, “knit a scarf for Gan Jing?”
She seemed to have something to do again, and she didn’t feel dull and lonely anymore as if she had injected with new vitality.
At the funeral, those relatives of the Luo Family who could shout out name or those who couldn’t were present. Some were silent while others were in pain.
This was the seventh day after Grandma Xiaochun passed away.
The younger ones, such as Luo San, Luo Zheng and others, had calmed down a lot. They had to be calmed because they still had to welcome those who came to express their condolences.
They were busy from the morning to the late evening; they even prepared meals for everyone.
At night, Luo San came to Luo Qiu’s home. She knocked on the door, and soon the door was opened. Luo San took a look and saw that there was already a luggage bag in the living room.
“Are you leaving?” Luo San asked when looking at Luo Qiu, blinking her beautiful eyes.
Luo Qiu nodded, “I have booked the ticket for the late night high-speed rail.”
“Yeah… you have been here for so many days.” Luo San nodded, “Why not I send you off?”
“No need.” Luo Qiu smiled and said, “You have been busy all day too, so take a good rest. I have called a taxi to come later.”
As he said, a black car was parked on the village road, and the lights of the car even came into the room.
“Ohh…” Luo San also nodded.
Finally, she watched Luo Qiu holding the luggage bag, closed the door and walked out. Before getting into the car, Luo Qiu handed out the key suddenly, “By the way, if you have time, can you take care of the room for me?”
Luo San stroked her hair and replied with a chuckle, “I can… but I have to take some fees!”
“It’s okay.” Luo Qiu nodded, “Well, I will pay you a fixed monthly labor fee later.”
Luo San was taken aback. She subconsciously stretched out her hand and tapped Luo Qiu’s head, but after tapping, she realized that this behavior was a bit inappropriate… it was somewhat too intimate, so she quickly said, “If you pay me money, I won’t take care of it instead!”
“Sorry.” Luo Qiu smiled, “Then I will trouble you, just here is enough.”
Seeing Luo Qiu opening the car door, Luo San suddenly said, “Luo Qiu!”
Luo San moved her lips, then she smiled slightly like an elf smiling in the breeze and said softly, “When we come back next time, let’s make Osmanthus Flower Syrup together?”
Luo Qiu nodded, then opened the door and got into the car… The car went out of the village without stopping.
Luo San waited until he was completely out of sight, then she sighed, glanced at the key in his hand. She then lowered her head and smiled. She felt a little relaxed. She planned to go back to make a cup of Osmanthus Flower Syrup with hot tea.
The car quickly drove off the village road, then it went onto the road to the high-speed rail station. At this moment, the driver who was driving in front suddenly asked, “Why don’t you stay for a few days? I see that Luo San seems to be reluctant.”
“No need.” Luo Qiu smiled and said, “It’s not that I won’t come back… but you, have you taken care of your things?”
The driver nodded and said indifferently, “I have talked to Lord Jin and Big Head that I’m going on a trip; I don’t know when I will be back. Besides, I gave a sum of money to Big Head to let him take care of Sister Lin in the future. As for Xiao Yucheng, I sneaked into his home and the home of his brother-in-law, Chief Officer Cheng, and found a lot of useful things. I gave them to Lord Jin and asked him to help report it. Lord Jin was delighted to hear that, saying that no one can simply mess with him even if he has retired. I heard that Xiao Yucheng was taken away by people from the city today, and so was the Chief Officer Cheng. At this moment, they should have admitted their crime.”
“I’m not asking about this.” Luo Qiu shook his head.
The driver was silent for a while before he sighed and said, “I actually quietly went to lit an incense for Grandma Xiaochun, then I also took a look at Tingting and the child… I don’t have any worries anymore.”
From the perspective of the rear view mirror, the driver was actually very young; he was probably in his early twenties.
There was a gray scarf with a dull style that didn’t even have a good handcraft… Under the scarf, you could see a key hung with a silver chain.
The key could be changed at will into a sharp weapon… a magic weapon: Zhan Lu.
“Then, please work hard in the future.” Luo Qiu smiled slightly and looked out of the car window.
The driver suddenly said, “I… I actually gave the child’s soul to…”
“Then just extend the term of service a bit more.” Luo Qiu replied calmly, “Black Soul Messenger is not a fun job, maybe you will resent me in the future… By the way, when you drive, shouldn’t you look at the front? Dangerous driving is bad. I have a deep understanding of this.”
“I know.” The driver nodded, “From now on, Wei Dazhe, is the sword in your hand… my master.”
Sister Lin suddenly yawned at the voicelines from the TV, then she drank some water before picking up the needle again.
The new scarf was already started, but she knitted slowly
When I finish knitting, should I try knitting a sweater? Sister Lin thought for a while. I have touched Gan Jing several times and felt that he isn’t fat, but he is quite strong. I should be able to estimate the size right?
Sister Lin smiled.
At this moment, the window next to the window swayed, then something jumped onto the sofa. Sister Lin was taken aback.
But at this time, she suddenly heard a cat cry, then something jumped into her body. It even naughtily crawled into her arms.
“Where do you come from, little cat?” Sister Lin lifted the brat cat that jumped in, “Why did you come to my house? Where is your master?”
“You have nowhere to go?” Sister Lin asked.
Sister Lin certainly didn’t understand what the cat was talking about. It was just a feeling of intimacy that made her a little bit fond of it. Maybe it is a wild cat? I don’t seem to touch anything like a pet pen on the cat’s body.
“Then stay with me.” Sister Lin smiled and hugged the little cat, groping softly, “En… you will be called Little Gan Jing from now on, do you like that?”
“What a good boy.”
Late at night.
The motorcycle swiftly moved on the mountain road, and the person riding it was a young man. The young man did not even wear a helmet, and his face was flushed.
He had just finished drinking, and he was very excited at the moment. He twisted the throttle to speed up again.
Unexpectedly, the effect of alcohol was so powerful that he was a little confused. The motorcycle rushed to the railing on the road, throwing him out.
Extreme joy begets sorrow.
The young man’s body rolled all the way down, and he finally fell into the reservoir here…The cold reservoir water suddenly made him sober.
The young man was struggling to swim to the side… He was actually very good at swimming. He used to come to this place to swim secretly.
However, something caught his feet and pulled him into the water fiercely!
They were like arms… many many arms!
The young man struggled in pain, and the cold water poured into his mouth and nose. Eventually, he was dragged into the water… completely swallowed by the cold and darkness.
The water surface was calm again.
An oblique warning sign still wrote: The reservoir is dangerous, don’t play in the water.
So, who will be the next person to drown?
Is it you?
