Chapter 41: Crisis
Lin Xinyu bowed once again and asked, “Is your family very rich?”
Where are these dumb kids from? Don’t you have eyes to see if someone’s rich or dirt poor? Besides, isn’t it rude to directly ask if someone has money?
The teenager was too lazy to pay attention to the boy so he turned around to leave. Lin Xinyu suddenly stepped forward and blocked his path.
The young master knitted his brows. No one had ever obstructed his path before. His sharp gaze focused on the boy like a knife.
Lin Xinyu trembled at his stare; he bowed his head and backed off two steps before saying weakly, “Lin Xin likes red meat. She likes to sleep, she likes to bask in the sun, and she…” He could list a few of her likes, but he actually didn’t know her very well.
They didn’t spend much time together and now she has to leave. Although he knew that she was going to have a better life, he still felt sorrowful.
Lin Xinyu couldn’t help but shed tears; drops of water stained his clothes, and he was choked for words.
Seeing the beautiful child drip with tears, the young master felt endless disgust. Only the most incompetent people cry, and of all people, it was actually a boy. Xiao Tian backed away two steps to avoid this cowardly boy.
Lin Xinyu thought the teenager was about to leave, but he still hadn’t told the young master everything he wanted to say. He quickly pulled Xiao Tian’s arm and pled, “You must care of Lin Xin.”
The teenager exclaimed, “Let go!” and pushed the boy down. Lin Xinyu fell on the ground with his hand clutching his chest before looking up with a pale face.
At this moment, the Young Master finally understood why he hated the boy; because the orphan was such a foolish, self righteous person without any tact or IQ. The child was obviously asking him to take care of the girl named Lin Xin.
The teenager said in a chilly voice, “Roll off.” His overbearing momentum didn’t allow for any resistance.
The young master caused Lin Xinyu to feel a sense of crisis from the depths of his heart. This was a man’s intuition, but as to what kind of crisis, he still couldn’t quite understand. He felt that the teenager’s youthful energy was very similar to Lin Xin’s; they were charismatic figures in this world. Meanwhile, he was just a waste hiding within his dark corner. Just when the girl had showered a ray of sunshine into his dim world, this ray of light was suddenly leaving him to return to her own world. He couldn’t catch it anymore, nor will he be able to hold it.
He tried to convince himself that she would at least have a better life.
But he was still unwilling to accept things as they are. Lin Xinyu wiped off his tears as he raised himself from the ground. He stood up straight and raised his chin as he angrily said, “Do you think I’d simply roll off just cause you tell me to?” His prideful look was exactly the same as Lin Xin’s.
The young man was stunned at the boy’s sudden change. He stared speechless at the boy, not knowing what possessed the child to suddenly act so different.
At this time, a scream resounded from the distance. It was in the direction where Lin Xin was bathing.
A foreboding feeling gripped the young master. He quickly dashed his long legs towards the direction of the sound while Lin Xinyu followed him from behind as they both rushed towards the bathhouse.
The door was flung wide opened and the first thing they saw was the bath bucket tipped over on the ground. Warm water mixed with blood overflowed. When the teenager saw the color of blood, his scalp turned numbed and he couldn’t bring himself to step forward. Lin Xinyu rushed into the room, searching quickly for Lin Xin.
He finally saw her with a white towel draping over her private area. Her messy hair was draped over her naked figure, and on her shoulder were noticeable red marks. She held a pair of bloody scissors in her trembling hand and her eyes had a blank stare she murmured incoherently, “Dean, I beg you, you let me go, you let me go. Please don’t come over, don’t come…”
The Dean lay a meter away with blood staining his lower body; because of the pain, he kept clutching the sensitive area. When he noticed that Lin Xinyu had entered the room, his eyes that were filled with pain turned red with anger. He raised his hands to grab the boy, but Lin Xinyu paid no attention to him and trudged straight towards the girl.
