Fire After Rebirth - Chap 208
Books, stationery, wood carvings, and a valuable necklace.
Lin Qingyan looked at the things on the ground in a daze, “Mom…” However, what greeted him was a slap in the face, and Zhou Yuelan slapped him across the face.
”How do I usually teach you, how can you do such a thing?!”
Although he didn’t feel any pain, the child’s white and tender cheeks immediately turned red. Lin Qingyan held his cheeks, feeling aggrieved and unclear. So, he looked at the necklace on the ground, “It’s not mine…”
”Mom, that’s my necklace!” An Nanyi ran over quickly and picked up the necklace, “Brother, even if you like my things, you can’t steal them, it’s wrong.”
”What? What stealing?” Lin Qingyan looked at him incredulously, as well as the adults around him, “I didn’t steal anything from you, why did you wrong me…”
”Mom, I didn’t steal anything, I really didn’t steal anything…”
”Why did that necklace appear in your schoolbag? Does it have feet? You still don’t admit it?” Zhou Yuelan glared at her cheap son viciously, and when she was about to raise her hand to fan her, Song Shuman stopped her.
”Forget it, just find the things.” Zhou Yuelan wore a mask. After so many years, Song Shuman didn’t recognize him. She frowned and said, “Even if your son did something wrong, you can’t beat him.”
The thin little child was covering his cheeks, his eyes were still full of tears, and he looked very pitiful.
Lin Qingyan’s face was covered with tears, he tried his best to explain, but no one believed him, he was not a bad boy, he really didn’t steal anything.
An Nanyi walked up to him, with a smug smile on his face, “Brother, my mother told me that it’s still a good boy to take the initiative to admit your mistakes, you can’t do that.”
Lin Qingyan looked at the person in front of her in disbelief. He was the one who wronged him by putting the necklace in his schoolbag, “It was you, you put the necklace in my schoolbag on purpose, you wronged me!”
”I didn’t.” An Nanyi blinked innocently.
Zhou Yuelan was apologizing to Song Shuman, “I’m sorry, ma’am, I will educate him well in the future.”
Naturally, Song Shuman wouldn’t care about others because of such a trivial matter. She looked at the crying child opposite, and she couldn’t bear it. She also doubted whether he stole the necklace.
But she would never doubt that her well-behaved little son would intentionally wrong others, and the matter would be left alone.
Zhou Yuelan didn’t know that the Gu family and the An family had a good relationship at first, and she was afraid that something unexpected would happen if she stayed in the Gu family. It happened that the servant who went home to give birth was also coming back, so she voluntarily resigned that day and brought Lin Qingyan back home.
But Lin Qingyan still tried to explain to her mother, his eyes were red and swollen from crying, holding a schoolbag in his arms, lowered his eyes and whispered:
”Mom, I really didn’t steal anything. It was the kid who put the necklace in my schoolbag on purpose.”
”When I was sweeping the floor, he made trouble on purpose and pushed me to the ground. He bullied me…” He stretched out his hand, wanting to show Zhou Yuelan the broken palm.
”How could someone bully you for no reason!” Zhou Yuelan defended her precious biological son, how could she believe his words, “Are you still lying?!”
”I didn’t…” Lin Qingyan withdrew her hand silently.
”I think you owe a lesson!”
Zhou Yuelan was so angry that she went back to her room and took out a clothes hanger, grabbed Lin Qingyan’s small arm, and slapped him fiercely with the clothes hanger, “Are you still lying?!”
”Are you still stealing other people’s things?!”
Tears flowed down and covered the child’s cheeks. He didn’t feel pain, and he cried not because of the pain, but because of grievances. Even his mother didn’t believe him.
”I didn’t steal, but I didn’t steal!”
”You’re still stubborn!”
”Stay in your room and reflect on yourself!”
In the small bedroom, a thin child was sitting in a corner. He curled up, buried his little face in his arms, his shoulders were trembling uncontrollably, and he let out a sobbing sound like a kitten.
And his thin arms and legs exposed to the air were covered with deep or shallow scars, which looked shocking, all from Zhou Yuelan’s beating with a hanger just now.
The child held the wooden rabbit tightly in his palm, big brother, I really didn’t steal anything, why didn’t everyone believe him, why…
That night, Lin Qingyan started to have a high fever, which was very severe. She was in a daze all the time, and it took almost a week for her to recover.
However, after he woke up, he selectively forgot everything that happened in Gu’s house.
An Qingyan suddenly sat up from the hospital bed, his chest heaved violently, his face was covered with cold sweat, and there was still sadness and bewilderment in those moist peach eyes.
What happened in the dream echoed in his mind over and over again, and he remembered everything, the time he spent with Gu Fei when he was eight years old, and being wronged as a thief.
The child who wronged him…is An Nanyi.
Steward Shen said that Mrs. An was the only one who brought her youngest son to Gu’s house that day. He is now very sure that he didn’t steal the necklace. It was An Nanyi’s good deed.
No wonder Zhou Yuelan hid the truth and refused to tell the truth. She was afraid that she would find out and take the opportunity to take revenge on An Nanyi, right? That was her biological son, of course he had to protect it everywhere.
So his insignificant fake son can be treated casually, and no matter how he explains it, he will not believe it.
Even if she was beaten with scars all over her body, she would not feel bad because she was not her own son.
The young man raised the corners of his lips to reveal a pale smile, but there was no smile in those moist eyes. Even though eleven years had passed, he couldn’t let it go.
”Yanyan, you finally woke up!”
