Chapter 55: In His Arms (2)
The two had fun in the room again. In the evening, Lin Xinyu wanted it to be the same as last night, joining Lin Xin while she slept on the bed.
She is twelve, and he is also twelve. There wasn’t any other option in that situation yesterday, but not today.
She drove away Lin Xinyu. Before she left, she did not forget to educate him.
Men and women were not allowed to kiss. Boys and girls could not sleep in the same bed casually.
Although Lin Xinyu knew it wasn’t proper, he still wanted to stay longer with her, and he lingered in her room for a while before he left.
The next day, a new dean came to the orphanage, an aunt who was in her forties, chubby with trendy curled hair and gold-rimmed glasses.
Facing the children in the orphanage like a kind mother, she asked them to call her mother Li.
With her arrival, she also brought a large amount of sponsorship. The environment in the orphanage underwent a qualitative change.
The place they slept in was no longer a dark and damp little space. Everyone had their own separate room.
A library has been added, the daily meals include meat, and a professional was employed to teach them.
Every holiday, a large number of people volunteer for social care.
The original, remote and deserted place has become bustling. It has become a venue for rich people to make appearances, and the commercial atmosphere is strong, there is a lot of corruption everywhere.
The biggest change to it is Lin Xinyu, who fell in love with all sports activities.
Playing, running, and learning Taekwondo with Lin Xin. A kick can break a plank of wood, the progress is amazing.
Because of the regular exercise, his health improved, his hair is not so yellow and his face is ruddy like a healthy child.
The personality is not so introverted, and he can hold a conversation with strangers.
Because of his beauty, politeness, and modesty, he’s always getting a lot of attention. He became the focus of the orphanage, and groups of people surrounded him.
Lin Xin looked at Lin Xinyu, who is becoming more and more cheerful. She feels like her family has grown up.
Along with exercising, Lin Xin did not forget to teach Lin Xinyu to read more books.
Because of the increase in sponsors, there is a library in the orphanage. Most of them are children’s books and world-famous books.
Lin Xin has read a few famous books and her knowledge of her previous world’s books aren’t bad.
She’s seen everything they have and has no interest in rereading. Every morning in the library for two hours of reading time, she naps on the table. Lin Xinyu read her books for her.
A “Jane Eyre”, an “Anna”, in Lin Xin’s hand is “Journey to the West” as if she only read this book.
Does she like Sun Wukong so much? Is it because of the omnipotence of heaven and earth? He also wants people who can do everything.
Then he read a few more pages and made some notes.
If Lin Xin says that he must read a lot of books to become useful, then he will read more books.
When Lin Xin woke up, she saw Lin Xinyu carefully reading the books and taking notes.
The afternoon sun sprinkled in the window and fell on him, adding a faint glow to him. The skin was transparent and clean, and the pure image was like an angel falling into the mortal world.
Lin Xinyu felt her eyes and turned to ask, “What are you looking at.”
Lin Xin said, “I’m looking at you.”
He bowed his head in embarrassment and asked, “Do I have something on my face?”
Lin Xin chuckled. “You look good, wow.” After changing the dean in the orphanage, she showered him with praise and love. She wants to let him know that he is the cleanest and most beautiful child in the world.
Lin Xinyu often heard those words from her, but every time he listened to them, he was still happy. He was as shy as a child who received his first compliment. Lin Xinyu tried to disguise it by concentrating on taking more notes.
Lin Xin got up, scraping the floor with her chair while moving to his side. She supported her head on her wrist and leaned over to see what Lin Xinyu wrote. Her head was under Lin Xinyu’s chin, the particles of hair on her face were clearly visible, and the childish nose itched because of the inhalation of dust. She groaned and yawned, her expression vividly alive.
Lin Xin always made him feel unreal. She descended from the sky like a god, vanquished the devil, and brought him to another world. She knows everything, can do anything, but is still a few months younger than him.
He felt like he was dreaming, and he was afraid of waking up in the original world.
Lin Xin’s expression of life made him feel a little relieved, that she was really in his life and that there was a living presence that could be touched.
He secretly moved his arms around her and enjoyed the feeling of her snuggling in his arms.
Lin Xin swept her eyes over the notes written by Lin Xinyu and read an excerpt from Rochester.
‘I sometimes have strange feelings for you — especially like now, when you approach me, there seems to be a string knotting my ribs, playing tightly, the solution cannot be found. If the rough straits and the land of two hundred miles separate us from each other, then my heart will bleed.’
What the heck is this?!
Lin Xin raised her eyelids and stared at Lin Xinyu.
This child read “Jane Eyre” and copied such a paragraph? Shouldn’t the essence of Jane Eyre be ‘I may be poor, humble and not beautiful, but when our souls come to God through the grave, we are all equal’?
