Chapter 106: Welcome Back
T/N: A Welcome Back both to Lin Xin and I! ^^; Sorry for the hiatus a while ago.
Thanks for sticking with me. I’ll be counting on you to point out mistakes. 😛
‘A famous young talent of China has set up an orphanage in XX, the tenth in ten years.’
The anchor on TV reported about a handsome young talent.
“Well, why are you watching this man again? Do you like him?” A refined gentleman blocked the TV and asked.
The girl in the wheelchair put down the remote control.
“Cut an apple for me.”
He sighed as he picked up an apple from the coffee table and squatted down beside the girl, peeling it as he said, “Oh, who made me owe you?” While he was in the middle of peeling the apple, she was still staring at the TV screen.
“Lin Xinyu, 28, the boss of Yuchen Technology, the company that was started a decade ago. Dad said the reason why they have achieved what they have today, is due to ingeniousness. You like him?” He handed the peeled apple to her.
“If you like him, shall I arrange for you the two of you to meet?”
“My sister is so beautiful and lovely, any man would like you.”
The girl took a bite of the apple, shook her head and said, “I don’t like him. Don’t bother.”
“You’ve been ‘uninterested’ in him for more than a month now, and I’ve been searching for information on the Internet. I don’t change channels when I see news about him. I don’t like him. What is it about him that you like? He is really good-looking, but he’s still a little worse than your brother. It’s normal for you to have a heart attack. Although you are in poor health now, with the financial resources of our family, you don’t have to look at anyone. If you like this guy, I’ll take care of it for you. Although the main business of our family is not science and technology, we’re all in the same circle and it isn’t difficult to get to know each other. All right, let’s just get this done in two days. We’ll have a birthday in two days, let’s host a party and invite all the young talents from S City and have you pick them out one by one.”
He reached out and rubbed her face.
“We’ll let them all know how beautiful and lovely our little princess is.”
The girl said solemnly, “Can you get your hands off of me?”
He liked to see her young and mature attitude and rubbed her face twice before he let go of her face, finally content. He said, “Well, it feels so good.”
The girl looked at him blankly before trying to push the wheelchair away from him. But she felt so weak, she did not even have the strength to turn the wheelchair. Having to turn to him for help, she ordered, “I’m going to bask in the sun.”
“Oh, look at how you sound, you’re talking to me as if I’m a servant? Xinxin, I’m your brother, not a servant. How could you do this to me?” He hugged his head and whined, but still wheeled her out of the door.
The girl in the wheelchair was Lin Xin. Who’d have thought she would go back to her original world?! But when she opened her eyes, she’d found herself in a strange environment, different from the first time.
She had the memory of this girl who was small, frail and sickly. Her parents felt that she was in poor health and seldom let her come into contact with the outside world. Because of the large amount of wealth in her family, she did not go to school even once, and all her studies were done at home.
Her parents loved her, she had a twin brother. Her body was exactly the same as she (originally) used to have, and her parents were the same as she remembered. For a long time, whenever she woke up, she felt like she was dreaming and didn’t know what was true and what was false. Perhaps, there was no Lin Xin and Lin Xinyu in the world and everything was just her own imagination?
Until one day, she saw the news on Lin Xinyu on TV. It was only then that she had an epiphany that whatever she had experienced was real.
Her parents taught in universities before she was born. Because the babies born were twins, the older brother was born in good health while his sister, weak and sickly. In order to raise her, her parents wanted to earn more money for her to see a doctor and quit their teaching careers to start a business, which led them to have today’s family business.
Her name was not Lin Xin now, her name is Lin Shuxin. Her brother was Lin Shuhao, born a few minutes before her. Her parents did everything they could to make her feel better when they were young. A fortune teller said that their names were at odds with their daughter’s horoscope. Heeding the fortune teller, they changed their names.
No wonder she never found anything about her parents on the Internet before. This was a parallel world and because of that little change, the direction of human fate differed greatly.
Coupled with Zhuang Zhou’s Mengdie state of mind, it had never brought her peace of mind. This body was hers, her parents were still there and she had a brother. She wasn’t used to it, but it wasn’t bad.
T/N: Zhuang Zhou Mengdie is a theory put forward by Zhuang Zhou, which holds that it is impossible for people to distinguish between reality and illusory.
It was as if she’d woken up from a dream; but in reality, it had only been ten years. All that had transpired, she remembered as if it were yesterday, and when she saw the news of Lin Xinyu, she thought, Let go.
She really didn’t know how to face him. He was a good man now, still alive. She hoped he’d have a good life.
Her main goal now was to build her physical strength. Not to be as successful as before, but normal- walk a few steps without fainting.
Her family was very pleased with her actively exercising and her brother Lin Shuhao was often with her. In the past, she used to move in a wheelchair, but now she could walk dozens of meters without fainting.
On the twins’ 24th birthday, Father and Mother Lin discussed it, and the birthday party was to be held with a special intent; invite all the single young talents in S City and introduce their daughter to them.
‘Our daughter’s now a big girl, 24 years old. We have to hurry… As for our son, he’s only 24 so he should not be in a hurry, definitely not in a hurry.’
