Chapter 54: In His Arms (1)
Xiao Tian had never been refused before. His arrogance doesn’t allow him to have any lingering nostalgia for Lin Xin. Even if he is interested in her, the 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. He hates Lin Xinyu but 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 lightening a little. In the original book, Xiao Tian’s character is the standard of an overbearing president. He belongs to a powerful family, his IQ is high, and he has a strong possessiveness, especially for the female lead. The woman is treated like a rag, being used and discarded according to his whims. And when he didn’t want it, he would jealously guard her, especially while Lin Xinyu was around the woman. He has 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 is the hole in the author’s brain for them to write such an ending? I think it’s 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 coquettishness, it is estimated that the son of the heavens will not do anything to repent afterward. About the plot? The heroine has not yet appeared, so fuck the plot, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. She’ll deal with how to change the story later.
Haha… life is so good. Lin Xin rolled on the bed two times and waved Lin Xinyu over: “Come here, come over.”
Lin Xinyu saw her eagerness and immediately understood that she was happy. He went to the bed, took 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 is there are special people to take care of the children’s diet in the orphanage. Breakfast is an egg on milk bread, Lin Xinyu did not eat to save the egg.
Lin Xin took 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 and ate the egg, then poured a glass of water for Lin Xin, well-behavedly sitting on the bed waiting 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 wants to say this to her, but he was powerless. Yesterday’s scene is vivid, but fortunately, it wasn’t true. If it did happen, what could he do?
Lin Xin notices 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, the darkness was no longer. He felt warmth and saw hope of a happy future.
He wants to seize it all, never letting them escape.
He hugged Lin Xin tightly, holding her like she was holding him. The strength 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 tighten, saying, “I am 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 much smaller than you. Later, I’ll call you big brother. We’re both surnamed Lin anyway.”
Lin Xinyu said happily: “You’re the one who said it, you’ll have to call me big brother.”
“Brother” strange word, she thought it was just an addressment, she is happy to play along with him.
