Chapter 54: In His Arms (1)
Xiao Tian had never been refused before. His arrogance would not allow him to have any lingering nostalgia for Lin Xin.
Even if he is interested in her, his interest is negligible in the face of her choice.
Regarding those doubts about Lin Xin in his heart, he didn’t want to ask again. And, even though he hated Lin Xinyu, he doesn’t care enough to destroy him.
She chose him, so let them be together. In the future, he will stand at heights they can only look up to.
Let her understand what she gave up, this is the best punishment for her.
After Xiao Tian’s mother and Lin Bo settled the orphanage matters, they adopted a child from the institution. On the day of their departure, Lin Xinyu hid in a corner and watched them leave.
When he could no longer see their car, he returned to Lin Xin’s room with peace of mind.
Lin Xin was not injured, and her body was healthy. She just didn’t want to get out of bed, snacking while hidden under the covers.
Seeing that Lin Xinyu came in, she quickly asked him: “Is that Xiao Tian gone?”
Lin Xinyu saw her eagerness to ask and wondered if she didn’t want Xiao Tian to go.
He gently nodded and said: “Yeah.”
Lin Xin swallowed the last bite of the snack in her mouth, the stone in her heart easing up a little.
In the original book, Xiao Tian’s character was the standard of an overbearing president.
He belonged to a powerful family, had a high IQ, and a strong possessiveness, especially for the female lead.
The woman was treated like a rag, being used and discarded according to his whims. And when he didn’t want it, he would still jealously guard her, especially while Lin Xinyu was around her.
He had a critically possessive desire, once even stripping the female lead of her clothes and locking her in a room.
Whenever he wanted XXOO, he would XXOO. The female lead got pregnant and he didn’t know, resulting in the female lead’s miscarriage.
After the whole fiasco, she finally married him. How big was the hole in the author’s brain for them to write such an ending? It’s rather funny to think about. Whoever wants to try this with me, I’ll chop across a cutting board.
Without knowing that he was Xiao Tian, Lin Xin had created some trouble with him. Once she knew who he was, Lin Xin did not dare to neglect her manners.
When she refused, she still worried about Xiao Tian retaliating against her. Or worse, regretting his decision concerning the dean.
He left without doing anything, how can she be unhappy?
With his pride, it was estimated that the favored son of the heavens would not do anything to revisit this issue in the future.
About the plot? The heroine hasn’t even appeared yet, so damn the plot, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. She’d deal with how to change the story later.
Haha… life is so good. Lin Xin rolled on the bed twice and waved over Lin Xinyu, “Come here, come.”
Lin Xinyu saw her eagerness and immediately understood that she was happy. He went to the bed, retrieved a boiled egg from his pocket and handed it to her. “I didn’t eat it.”
On the second day after Xiao Tian’s arrival, the food in the orphanage improved. Today there was specialized personnel hired to take care of the children’s diet in the orphanage.
Breakfast consisted of egg, milk, and bread. However, Lin Xinyu deliberately refrained from eating the egg in order to save it for Lin Xin.
Lin Xin accepted the egg and peeled off the outer shell, dividing it into two halves. She stuffed one half into Lin Xinyu’s mouth, “In the future, don’t worry about dividing the food between us. I have enough to eat and you’re still growing.”
Lin Xinyu smiled as he ate the egg. He poured a glass of water for Lin Xin, then sat by the bed and patiently waited for her to drink.
Lin Xin drank the water and took Lin Xinyu’s hand. She felt that he wanted to bury his pain deep in his heart and, hoping to soothe his injuries, revealed all her thoughts merged into one sentence: “If I am there, no one will hurt you again.”
Lin Xinyu also wanted to say this to her, but he was powerless. Yesterday’s scene was vivid, but fortunately, it wasn’t true. If it did happen, what could he do?
Lin Xin noticed his silence. Thinking that he was reminded of his trauma, she hugged him, just like when her mother held her before when she was unhappy, and patted his back, saying to him: “Gone, everything has passed, I am here.” Mom loves you.
Her mother’s hug could heal her pain and give her great courage and strength. She believes she can also give him the same cure.
Love is something that can’t be seen. It flows in the air, in the blood, and inadvertently touches your heart.
It can fill the gaps in life and make you feel that everything is beautiful and full of sunshine. This light started to shine into his dark corners.
She was like the sun, shining over him. His whole world became bright and the darkness no longer surrounded him. He felt warmth and saw hope of a happy future.
He wanted to seize it all, never letting them escape.
He hugged Lin Xin tightly, holding her like she was holding him. The strength of his hold was too big, Lin Xin grumbled, chuckled, and said, “In the future, don’t show such a bitter face again, I don’t like it. Come, give your big sister a smile.”
Lin Xinyu’s lips tightened, and he said, “I’m older than you.”
Lin Xin saw him seriously defending his age and couldn’t help but laugh, “Alright, you’re older than me, you’re older than me. I am way smaller than you. Later, I’ll call you big brother. We’re both surnamed Lin anyway.”
Lin Xinyu happily said, “You’re the one who said it, you’ll have to call me big brother.”
‘Brother’, a strange word. She didn’t think much of it, it was only an addressment used between siblings. So, she is happy to play along with him.
