Jian Ruocheng spoke. “All right, just hitting him is enough. I’ll give you the money for this steamed bun.”
Then, he gave the attendant two taels.
The attendant was still not sure about the situation. However, it was good to have the money back, so he thanked him and walked in again.
At this moment, the child looked up.
Nan Yan saw his eyes at a glance. Although his face was dark and thin, his eyes were very big and bright, they were fierce, like a wolf’s.
She was frightened by the child’s eyes.
Jian Ruocheng also frowned slightly when he saw these eyes, but he stepped forward and said, ” Why, do you refuse to accept it?”
“I asked the attendant to hit you because you are a thief. “
“This time, stealing steamed bun, others hit you; If you rob treasures in the future, someone will cut off your head!”
Jian Ruocheng spoke this words with a powerful resonating tone that Nan Yan listened heard them so well, but the child’s eyes suddenly turned red, and tears seemed to gush out. He refused to let them fall, biting his lower lip and lowering his head.
Nan Yan felt a little soft in heart and said hastily, “Well, you just need to know your mistakes.”
Hearing that, the child slowly got up from the ground. Nan Yan had just been hit hard by him, and this time, she saw that the child’s body was full of injuries, and there were even several blood cuts on his wrist. She hastily asked, “What’s the matter? Why are you so hurt? “
The child didn’t look up either, but gritted his teeth and said, “Fighting.”
His voice was very low, although he was still young, but it sounded unlike a child’s voice, moreover, he also had a ferocious look in his eyes.
Nan Yan asked. “Who did you fight with?”
“The man who robbed my food.”
Nan Yan looked up and stared at Jian Ruocheng.
Jian Ruocheng came to his senses. Nan Yan said hastily, “You stole something because someone robbed you your food?”
The child bit his lower lip and said nothing.
Nan Yan sighed softly and said, “But, you shouldn’t have stolen from others.”
Although her words were not unreasonable, but she said it gently and full of affection, and her appearance was extremely beautiful. The child looked up at her and his eyes were not as fierce as before.
After a long pause, he said, “It fine if I don’t eat, but my mother is starving.”
“You did it for your mother, is she that hungry?”
“What about your father?”
Seeing the child was silent, Nan Yan somewhat understood.
After some thought, she looked up and said to Jian Ruocheng, “Officer Jian, can you lend me some more money?”
Jian Ruocheng looked at her and naturally understood what she meant. Without saying much, he took out his purse, but when he looked at it, he only had ten taels left.
He said with a wry smile. “I didn’t bring much.”
Nan Yan nodded and gave the child all ten taels.
The child was holding on, but Nan Yan’s snow-white slender hands grabbed his dark dirty hands, stained with coal, ash and mud, and he felt as if she had been tainted by him.
He did not dare to move at once.
Nan Yan said softly, “We don’t have much money either. We’ll give it to you all. In the future, no matter what, you won’t steal anything. It will only harm others and your own self.”
The child looked up at her, then at Jian Roucheng. Without saying a word, he suddenly jumped out of the middle of them and ran away.
Nan Yan watched the child’s back disappeared at the end of the long street, she sighed and said, “What a pity.”
Jian Ruocheng also looked for a while, then looked back at the restaurant and said,
“Ok, let’s go in.”
