Yes I Do
Last chapter of the week.
QOTD (by Hentai.Is.No.Sin):
"Why donate money to save endangered animals if you can donate to Lynic on Patreon?! Pledge to Lynic on Patreon starting from only 1 dolla! Thats right, just 1 dolla!"
President Cha and Zhenxiu hugged each other tightly. Tears flowed down her eyes unstoppably as she felt extremely emotional.
Zhenxiu cried so much that her eyes reddened. She kept whispering, Grandma, as if she wanted to talk about all the suffering she had been through outside, and her yearning towards her loved ones.
Feeling moved, the woman asked, President, is she the child you talked about who hadnt returned for a very long time?
President Cha seemed like she had much respect for this woman, but she couldnt speak a word as she was heavily sobbing. All she could do was to nod repeatedly and she hugged Zhenxius small figure.
Smiling, the woman said, Im glad that shes back. She mustve suffered a lot outside, she should be considered a thoughtful child as well.
President Cha stroked Zhenxius black hair as she consoled her. She couldnt be concerned with anything else anymore.
The woman turned around and smiled at Yang Chen apologetically. Young Man, Im really sorry. These two children are just worried about my safety, they actually dont mean to do harm. I hope you dont keep it in your heart. How would someone who was willing to visit the children during Christmas be malicious? You wouldnt bear a grudge about it, would you?
The indignation in Yang Chens heart somehow instantly vanished into thin air when he looked at the womans face which felt like spring breeze. He couldnt help but to feel impressed by her. The attitude she held and the way she talked were exceptionally gentle, making it hard for people to get mad at her, just like an enormous force that landed on a sponge or a cow sculpture made of clay that entered the ocean and melted completely in a matter of seconds.
It was either due to her inborn nature or years of hard work of self-cultivation.
Nevermind, I just came to visit the president and children together with Zhenxiu. I dont want to be involved in too many things, Yang Chen said in an indifferent manner.
Do you think were afraid of you?! Little Li widened her eyes in anger.
The woman frowned and spoke in a deep voice, Was it still not enough?!
Little Wen and Little Li saw that the woman looked like she was really going to get mad, and finally settled. They lowered their heads resentfully in silence.
The woman shook her head before sighing helplessly. She turned around and said, President Cha, I wont interrupt your time with the child anymore. You guys must have a lot of things to talk about. I still need to visit the orphanage in the next city, I shall leave now.
President Cha let go of Zhenxiu and said, Madam, please leave after eating here. The children are all thankful for the gifts you delivered.
My schedule is really tight, I cant afford to delay it. Help me tell the children that Ill come back during the new year, the woman replied politely.
President Cha seemed to know that she was telling the truth, so she didnt make her stay anymore. Bowing respectfully, she said, Madam, I hope for your familys good health in this new year.
How can you do this? The woman smilingly held President Cha up. Im your junior, its more appropriate for me to bow to you, President.
Im doing this on the childrens behalf, President Cha said with a smile.
The woman took a glance at the entire courtyard with a faint smile for the last time before nodding at Yang Chen as a signal of goodbye, and bringing the two bodyguards out of the place.
Yang Chen nodded back at the woman. Regarding Little Wens and Little Lis gazes at Yang Chen which implied a warning, Yang Chen took them all as sand that entered his eyes. He couldnt spot any of them.
Sir, I didnt expect you to be here again. Good things always come when you come to visit. I didnt think Zhenxiu would return together with you, President Cha said with rich emotions.
Lifting the two plastic bags containing candies and other junk foods, Yang Chen smiled and said, President, Ill tell you why I brought her back later. I think its better to give the children their gifts first.
Aye, alright alright. The things youre carrying must be really heavy. The wrinkles on President Chas face moved when she smiled. She brought Yang Chen and Zhenxiu who just stopped crying into the place.
Outside the orphanage, at a deserted parking area, the woman stopped moving right before she wanted to get into a white Infinity car. She seemed like she was pondering about something.
She asked the two bodyguards behind her, Did you guys ask for the young mans name earlier?
Little Wen shook her head. We didnt ask. What is it, Madam? Is it really important? If Madam wants to know, I can go and ask now.
An uncertain feeling appeared in the womans eyes before she ridiculed herself. I must be overthinking, how is that possible Eh, you two havent even asked for his name and you drew out your guns? Is the gun supposed to be taken this lightly?
Madam, Chief told us to properly protect you. Especially for next years election, your safety cannot be compromised in any way at such a key moment, Little Li said as she felt wronged.
The woman suddenly turned dull, as if she wasnt concerned with the election. Without saying anything more, she slowly sat into the car.
At the same time, Yang Chen who followed President Cha inside the orphanage quickly understood who the woman earlier was. Isnt she the woman in the biggest portrait in the walkway, the founder of the orphanageGuo Xuehua?!
No wonder I felt she looked so familiar, and President Cha treated her with so much respect.
When he thought about it more, he felt that she must be inspecting the orphanages she founded at various places, and coincidentally came here today.
Seeing the person in real life, Yang Chen realized that portraits indeed couldnt display a persons true aura. The kind of heart-warming smile couldnt be felt through the cold painting.
Since it was lunchtime, President Cha let Zhenxiu and Yang Chen eat together with the children. All of them got themselves seated at the huge dining room before happily eating away.
After that, President Cha naturally brought Zhenxiu to her office for a rather long chat as a warm welcome. When she found out that Zhenxiu had a small business of opening food stalls, and didnt starve by the streets without warm clothing, she finally felt a bit better. She later asked questions like how Zhenxiu managed to know Yang Chen. Regarding the past of becoming a gangster and pickpocket, Zhenxiu certainly didnt tell President Cha about it.
It wasnt a matter of dishonesty, she was just afraid that President Cha may not be able to stand it.
Yang Chen took a short nap in the orphanage alone, but wasnt feeling too bored, since the children would come to tease him. Some tried to draw turtles on his face while others wanted to tie his feet with a rope. Yang Chen didnt know whether to cry or to laugh.
During the evening, it was the childrens homework session, which President Cha had to look after. Reluctantly, she sent Zhenxiu off after asking her to come visit often.
Zhenxiu ran back to Yang Chens side. Although she walked for the whole afternoon, she didnt look any tired, but was energized and happy instead.
You must be really happy after the chat. Wouldnt it be better if you returned earlier? Yang Chen asked with a smile.
Zhenxiu pouted. I was afraid of getting scolded by Grandma earlier, and I didnt feel confident to return at that time. If it wasnt Brother Yang who came here with me today, I bet I still had to wait until next year or something.
Come back more often, the president is old already. Yang Chen didnt continue talking about it.
Zhenxiu nodded obediently as her eyes revealed sorrow.
Brother Yang, can you go somewhere with me? Zhenxiu suddenly asked.
Yang Chen initially thought that Zhenxiu planned to go back. He didnt expect that she wanted to go somewhere else, but since he accompanied her out today, he naturally didnt have a reason to decline her small request.
The place Zhenxiu wanted to go wasnt anywhere special, but was merely the small courtyard behind the orphanage. There were slides, climbing poles, swings and other huge toys there. It was the place where the children from the orphanage usually played at.
Zhenxiu touched every equipment at the courtyard as she felt nostalgic. At last, she sat on a swing and started moving.
Yang Chen followed her and sat on another swing from the same row. Sitting on the swings, the entrance of the orphanage could be seen right in front of them.
When I was young, I would come here to sit for a while almost every day. Id always look at the sun fall from the end of the sky as I waited for Grandma to call us for dinner Zhenxiu sounded like she was talking to herself. I would always dream of this scene at night, as if it happened just yesterday
Yang Chen listened to her silently. Zhenxiu who sat beside him didnt seem like an eighteen-year-old girl currently. The grief between her brows wasnt something children who grew up being loved by their parents could hold. It wasnt something considered to be any excellent, but it caused people to not neglect this little girls strong mentality.
Zhenxiu turned her head and looked at Yang Chen with a smile before asking, Brother Yang, do you know what I always thought about when I sat here every day?
Yang Chen kept quiet for a while. Were you possibly thinking what you were going to have for dinner?
Zhenxiu pouted. Im not that gluttonous
Then what is it?
Zhenxiu smiled faintly as she looked like she was recalling something. Id always think would there be a married couple, or a man, or a woman, who would walk in from the entrance Then, theyd turned their head to look at me, and smile at me Id wait for the person to walk in front of me and tell me, Little Girl, can you be my daughter? At that time, Id certainly say yes, regardless of who they were. As long as they were willing to adopt me, Id leave with them Because, that was the only way I could have my own parents
Seeing that Yang Chen was staring at her, Zhenxiu bit her thin lip and said, However, almost all of my friends around me were adopted except me. After that, I stopped thinking that way
Yang Chen remained silent. In his mind, he pictured a little girl sitting on a swing alone at dusk, staring at the empty entrance, day by day, year by year. It should be tough to get through the type of devastating days.
Brother Yang, do you know why I dont feel like studying or going back to school? Zhenxiu asked softly. When I used to go to school, once others knew that I was from the orphanage, theyd taunt me and say I broke out of a stone, and didnt have parents. After that when I grew slightly older, my schoolmates in the junior high school werent willing to spend time with me. Some guys who werent willing to do their homework forced me to do it for them. If I refused to do so, theyd bully me, and even hit me Theyd hide my lunchbox and forbid me from eating
[TL note: Breaking out of a stone is a reference to the classical novel Journey to the West where the Monkey King was born by literally bursting out of a stone.]
Studying, to me, instead of saying I went for education, it was more like I went for a torture or torment.
Brother Yang, I actually rode motorcycles with the bunch of people, became a thief, and constantly involved myself in fights in my junior high school. That was because if I didnt fight back, theyd bully me more severely. I knew that I could only rely on myself, since I wouldnt have parents to come help me. If I wanted to live in this world, I could only rely on my fists
Zhenxiu. Yang Chen turned his head and stared into Zhenxius eyes. Sit on the swing, dont move.
Ah? Zhenxiu didnt know what Yang Chen wanted to do, but still obediently sat on the swing without moving.
Yang Chen stood up and walked out of the courtyard, then the entrance of the orphanage.
When Zhenxiu was still confused, Yang Chen walked back in again.
Yang Chen could be seen looking around for a while, as if he wasnt familiar with the place. After that, he noticed Zhenxiu on the swing.
Yang Chen appeared to be slightly surprised as he smiled. Step by step, he walked towards Zhenxiu. He walked more and more closely before stopping in front of Zhenxiu.
Yang Chen squatted down and reached an arm out to hold Zhenxius little hand which was rather rough due to work.
Yang Chen acted like it was his first time meeting Zhenxiu. He admired Zhenxius face for quite a while.
Ah such a beautiful little girl. Im reluctant to leave you after seeing you. Little Girl, would you come home with me? Although Im too young to be your father, can you be my younger sister?
Zhenxiu felt like her heart got covered by a wave of sweetness. She almost burst in laughter for the sudden appearance of such a happy and touching moment, but her emotions got raised to the peak. Her happiness got converted into teardrops, which fell onto the snowy ground like beads with a broken string, instantly melting the accumulated snow due to the heat
Why are you crying? You dont look nice anymore when you cry, Yang Chen said gently. Answer me, do you wish to be my younger sister?
Zhenxiu nodded forcefully. Yes, I do.
You cant only be pretty being my younger sister, you still need to get good grades. If I send you to school, you need to study properly, can you do that? Yang Chen asked seriously.
Zhenxiu held back from laughing. She said in a childish manner, But, Elder Brother, what happens if someone bullies your younger sister?
If anyone dares to bully my little sister, Ill beat them to death, Yang Chen said solemnly.
Zhenxiu finally couldnt hold her emotions which were on the verge of collapsing anymore. She rushed into Yang Chens arms as she started sobbing, causing Yang Chens chest to be drenched with her tears
Yang Chen lightly patted Zhenxius back. Beside Zhenxius ear, he said softly and seriously, Zhenxiu, if you ever feel that everyone in this world is against you, you have to remember, theres this person who would go against the entire world for you
