Rebirth After Divorce Chapter 19


Chapter 18:

Early the next morning, Luo Xiao followed his uncle out. Walking on the road to Linchun Street, looking at the low and dilapidated bungalows on both sides, I was very emotional: Who would have thought that this is such a place called a slum by the people of City S, but it will be ten years later. A commercial center hard to find in one place.

When he thinks of the future housing prices, Luo Xiao's heart can't stop being excited and intolerable. Unfortunately, he doesn't have much money in his hands now~~ But well, there will be soon~~ Luo Xiao thinks this way Then, I walked quickly towards the destination with more excitement.

A grocery store, looking at the five words written on the signboard, Luo Xiao couldn't help but twitched his mouth: I have to say that the level of the store's owner in taking the name of the store is really... hehe.

Settling his mind, Luo Xiao put on the curious expression that a ten-year-old child should have, and stepped into the store. An old man over half a hundred years old sitting at the counter looked up at him, then closed his eyes and leaned back on the chair to continue dozing off.

Although it was only a light glance, that glance made Luo Xiao feel like he was seen through. He calmed down and hardened his scalp and began to search in the store. Soon he saw the target at a glance, but in order not to cause anything wrong, he still patiently looked left and right.

Step by step, he approached the target little by little, and finally, he could reach out and touch it. This is a small box with a diameter of ten centimeters. The outside is covered with rust. When you pick it up, you can clearly see a lot of dust falling. If it weren't because he heard what his little uncle said in great detail, he wouldn't believe it. It was just such a box, and the things in it were so valuable.

After Luo Xiao took the small box in his hand, he took two more things that he had seen at a glance: a dirty little peach walnut the size of his thumb and a few similarly rusty coins. Although he really didn't know how he would fancy these things, there was a feeling in his heart, as if they were destined to belong to him.

Luo Xiao frowned and decided to follow his own feelings, because he found that since the pattern of the seed appeared in the palm of his hand, his feeling that should resemble the sixth sense is sometimes very effective.

"Grandpa, I want to buy these things." Luo Xiao took these three things and said to the old man who was still dozing off.

"En?" The old man opened his eyes, a flash of light flashed in his eyes, and then yawned and said, "My child, these things are not cheap, do you have money to buy?"

"How much does it cost?" Luo Xiao didn't expect to buy other things, so the money brought was not a lot, it was just too much.

"Well, seeing that you are a child, the old man doesn't lie to you, so he will charge you five yuan."

"Five yuan?" Luo Xiao frowned and bit his lower lip subconsciously. The money is all from the little uncle, and what he has is also some of his own pocket money and new year's money, which is a little more than four yuan in total. This is simply not enough to buy these three things, but he really wants to buy them all.

So, after rethinking, he still asked: "Grandpa, I don't have that much money on me. Can it be a little cheaper?"

"En? Not so much money?" The old man didn't show anything on his face, but he was happy in his heart: just wait for his words! Fortunately, he doesnt have enough money, otherwise he still doesnt know how to continue~

"However, these prices are already the cheapest."

Luo Xiao knew it. He still remembered that the little uncle said that people only spent four yuan on this small box, not to mention that three were only quoted at five yuan.

With a twist in his mind, he tentatively said: "Grandpa, I, can I work for you to offset the price difference?"

"Part-time job?" The old man looked at him up and down, "Just your small body?"

Well, as a ten-year-old child, Luo Xiao's long-term deduction from his family by Grandma Yu and the serious illness during this period did make him look thinner than other children of the same age.

When Luo Xiao heard this, he couldn't help but slumped his shoulders. Hey, it seems that he can only give up some first. Just when he was about to say something, he listened to the old man again and said: "Since you like these things so much, then do as you say."

"Hey?" Luo Xiao didn't react at once.

"Why, did you lie to the old man just now?" The old man glared.

"No, no, I didn't lie to you." Luo Xiao waved his hand in a panic, "Well, how much time do I need to do?"

"Why, still want to be lazy and do less?"

"No, it's just that I'm still in school. This time I came here with my uncle, so..." Luo Xiao explained.

"What is your name and where are you from?" The old man took a sip of water from his teacup, "How old are you now?"

Luo Xiao answered honestly: "My name is Luo Xiao, I live in Town C, and I am ten years old today." As an inner man in his thirties, Luo Xiao feels good about this old man, so he Answered honestly. After all, he, an old man, has no good plans for benefiting from him or a child. Besides, he had probed the old man beforehand, and learned from the neighbors in the neighborhood that although he didn't interact with others much, he was still a good person.

"Ten years old~~" The old man murmured in his heart. Although he is a little older, it is okay. If the talent is good, then those guys will be envious of death. Anyway, just take a good look in the next few days. If it is really suitable, just start directly, otherwise if those guys know about it, it will be taken away.~~~ Think Thinking about some things in the past, it is really a sad history for him~~~

"Huh?" What happened to ten years old? Luo Xiao was puzzled, but he didn't ask, just waited for his text.

Sure enough, it didn't take long to hear: "Well then, I will accept you for these three things. Hey, by the way, how much money did you bring?"

"Four yuan and six." Luo Xiao took off his right shoe, took out a few crumpled paper money from the sock, put it on the table and counted it and said, looking at the old man.

Looking at his movements, the old man raised his eyebrows involuntarily: Ouch, thats not bad, the child also knows to put money under his feet and he is very vigilant. However, these money should not be stained with athlete's foot, right?

If Luo Xiao knew what the old man was thinking at this time, he would definitely shout to him directly with his shoes jumping on his feet: You have athlete's foot, and your family has athlete's foot! How can people who wash their feet actively every day have athletes foot? They love to be clean, OK?

"If this is the case, the old man will charge you three yuan."

"Hey? Really?" Luo Xiao was surprised and wondered if he had heard it wrong, "Three yuan? All?"

"Well, yes." The old man took another sip of water. "But you have to work with me for a week, from nine in the morning to four in the evening, how about?"

Luo Xiao nodded without hesitation, "Okay, no problem." He had said to his mother that he would wait for more than a week before going back, and now it is just right. Uncle went to work at 8 o'clock. You don't get home from get off work until 5 o'clock in the evening. Just be careful and you won't be caught.

"That's OK, you can go back today. You can come here on time at nine o'clock tomorrow morning." The old man took three one yuan and motioned to him to put the remaining money away and waved him away.

Luo Xiao, who put the three things in his pocket, had a faster heartbeat along the way, fearing that someone would suddenly appear to rob him or something. Running fast, he just caused passers-by to sigh in his heart: young is good, look at this little guy, he runs very fast.

After arriving at the borrowed place, Luo Xiao carefully closed the door, drew the curtains, and carefully checked the three items out of his pockets and put them on the table.

He picked up the small broken box first and wiped it carefully with the towel on the side. After wiping, he saw a small mottled tin box. He took out the prepared scissors and carefully pried the tin out along the sideline. Sure enough, a small rectangular wooden box with a length of about 8 cm and a width of about 5 cm was exposed inside. Although I don't know what kind of wooden box it is, just looking at the exquisite carvings on it can tell that it must be very valuable. Otherwise, why would it be wrapped in a tin box? Not to mention the contents of the tin box.

Luo Xiao took a deep breath, and then opened the small wooden box with a serious expression, with a slightly yellowed note in between. I picked it up and opened it carefully on the table. Sure enough, it was a treasure map, as my uncle said. You know, at the beginning, that person discovered this picture and then tried to investigate the hiding place. As a result, he really found a large number of treasures. It's a pity that this matter was known to other people somehow, and all the treasures in it were robbed. But that's it, that person also became a millionaire with a few treasures he grabbed~~~

When he thought of the treasures hidden in the location shown above, Luo Xiao was excited. And what made him most happy was that the place where the treasure was hidden was on the inaccessible Gutou Mountain in their town. The reason why it is called Broken Head Mountain is because the head of that mountain was chopped off with an axe, and it was called down over time.

After excited about this treasure map, Luo Xiao looked at the few coins and the peach and walnut on the table. The coins were still so rusty after being wiped with a towel, and there was no difference between them. Luo Xiao checked them repeatedly for a long time and found nothing, so he had to put them down helplessly.

Then, he picked up the peach walnut again, and after wiping it, it was quite clean, and there was no difference when he looked at it. Suddenly, he found that a part of the peach and walnut did not seem to be polished. He did not stop his nails and buckled it. Who ever thought that a slippery hand was scratched by the sharp part of a peach-hued palm.

The palm of the hand with the seed pattern suddenly became hot, and a white light suddenly appeared in front of him, causing Luo Xiao to close his eyes...
