Chapter 100

       Two days later, Chen Yuncheng did not expect Shu Rong and Ning Zhanghong to really come to the hospital to visit Guan Anlin. They brought a large bouquet of flowers and a very delicate-looking fruit basket.

       However, the husband and wife did not stay in the ward for too long, and they probably had nothing to say, so they hurriedly left after standing for a while.

       Chen Yuncheng was not there at that time and it was only later that he heard about it from Guan Anlin.

       Guan Anlin told Chen Yuncheng that Ning Junyan’s parents came to see him and said they wanted to thank him. Guan Anlin was lying on the hospital bed at that time and told them that they were welcome and that they should treat Chen Yuncheng better in the future, and not obstruct Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan from being together.

       Chen Yuncheng was standing by the bed as he took out a bunch of gr4p3s from the fruit basket on the bedside table and prepared to wash them. When he heard this, he looked at Guan Anlin and asked him, “What did his mother say?”

       Guan Anlin replied, “The face of his mother became really bad and she didn’t say anything. She stood there for a while and left.”

       Chen Yuncheng thought to himself that it was normal, people like Shu Rong couldn’t change their ideas in a day or two. As long as they didn’t oppose strongly and didn’t work hard to obstruct them, it was already considered good.

       At this time around, Guan Anlin could also be discharged from the hospital.

       Although he was recovering well, he had been seriously injured and had undergone such major surgery, so Chen Yuncheng was still worried. He told him not to go back to stay in the store but to live in a rented house outside.

       According to the news from Long Zhanyu, after the report was made to the procuratorate’s office for intentional homicide and fraud, Yu Jie had been approved for arrest.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t have much legal knowledge, but since the incident between Guan Anlin and Zhou Yan, he had also learned a lot about the handling of criminal cases. He knew that after the procuratorate had reviewed the arrest, the chances of Yu Jie being sentenced were high.

       It was not convenient for Long Zhanyu to disclose many details of the cases to them, but whenever Long Zhanyu mentioned this case, he was obviously very confident that he had enough evidence to convict Yu Jie.

       Yu Mingli contacted Guan Anlin twice more, and each time the amount of compensation mentioned increased. She hoped that Guan Anlin could express his understanding of Yu Jie’s behaviour, and she was very adamant that her father must not have done it on purpose. She said that it was too dark at the time, and Guan Anlin might not be able to see clearly. She hoped that Guan Anlin could accept the money and forgive her father.

       But Guan Anlin did not intend to sign this letter of understanding.

       “No matter how much she increased it, I won’t sign it,” was what he said to Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng and Guan Anlin were sitting under the big tree in front of the store. It was already late autumn, and when this season passed, it would be winter soon.

       It was last winter when he reunited with Ning Junyan, and it was also last winter when Guan Anlin was released from prison. A lot of things had happened and a lot of changes had taken place.

       Chen Yuncheng stared at a yellow leaf that was flying in the air and took a lot of time to land on the ground, and said, “We don’t want their money, we can make money.”

       Guan Anlin nodded.

       Chen Yuncheng also said, “After registering the company, I will consider expanding the scope of the agency, and then you will be my manager.”

       Guan Anlin scratched his head, “Forget it, my educational background is too low, I’m sorry.”

       “What are you afraid of,” Chen Yuncheng said, “I’m here. How much money can they pay you? It’s only three million, we’ll make enough soon.”

       Guan Anlin laughed out loud, sounding a little silly. Then he bumped Chen Yuncheng with his elbow and said, “Doctor Ning is here to pick you up.”

       He was hospitalised some time ago, and the deputy director of the department, Ning Junyan, personally performed emergency surgery on Guan Anlin. It suddenly raised his image in Guan Anlin’s heart. A powerful doctor would have had absolute authority in the hospital, and Guan Anlin, who watched him check in every day and had his wounds examined by him, had habitually begun to fear him over time, and had not dared to provoke him for a long time

       Chen Yuncheng stood up from the steps and walked towards Ning Junyan, whom he had asked to go out for dinner tonight.

       They often ate out because they didn’t have enough time to cook and eat on their own, but most of the time they ate casually at the small restaurants near their rented house. Tonight was different, tonight was a date, because Guan Anqin recommended a delicious western restaurant to Chen Yuncheng, so Chen Yuncheng invited Ning Junyan to go out to eat with him.

       That restaurant was a Mexican restaurant, located in a small square, selling Mexican food as well as wine, and it was very busy every night.

       Ning Junyan didn’t drive, so he took a taxi and went to dinner with Chen Yuncheng, and ordered a bottle of foreign wine.

       The two ate, drank and listened to music in an open-air restaurant. Later, Chen Yuncheng got a little dizzy from drinking, and sat on the same bench with Ning Junyan, leaning his head on his shoulder.

       He looked at the band performing in front of him with slightly red eyes, and asked Ning Junyan, “Would anyone be looking at us?”

       Ning Junyan rubbed his cheek against his forehead, “They can look if they like it.”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled, “People will find us strange.”

       Ning Junyan said, “I find most people in the world very strange, so what?”

       Chen Yuncheng held Ning Junyan’s hand on the chair, making himself more comfortable on Ning Junyan’s shoulder. In fact, it seemed that there was no need to do anything, and just being able to have someone with him all the time was very blissful.

       The later it got, the colder the weather became, and Chen Yuncheng yawned as the cold wind made him feel drunk.

       Ning Junyan asked him softly if he wanted to go back.

       He was a little hesitant and felt too comfortable in this place, so he was reluctant to get up for a while.

       Ning Junyan said, “Don’t want to go back and open a room?”

       Chen Yuncheng smiled and said, “I already rented a place for you, can’t you let me save the money instead of opening a room?”

       Ning Junyan said to him, “I can pay for today’s money.”

       Chen Yuncheng still found it funny as he lowered his head and glanced at the ring on his hand, pretending to be surprised, “I thought we were married, isn’t your money my money?”

       Ning Junyan replied, “Yes, but you forgot that you also signed a contract with me and mortgaged yourself to me.”

       Chen Yuncheng almost forgot about it, and the contract was still locked in the drawer of the rented house.

       Ning Junyan continued, “This isn’t time for me to say something to you, could you even listen to what I say?”

       Chen Yuncheng looked up at him, with a bright smile in his eyes, “What do you want to say?”

       Ning Junyan leaned close to his ear and whispered, “Take off your clothes and lift your ass.”

       Chen Yuncheng gripped his hand tightly, stood up and said, “Go, let’s open the room.”

       He had just finished speaking these words when he raised his head and saw a figure in the distance and then stopped moving again.

       Ning Junyan followed his gaze and saw a little girl with a dirty face who was begging for money.

       Ever since Chen Yuncheng closed the previous small kiosk, he hadn’t seen this little girl for a long time, and he didn’t expect to see her here today.

       The little girl was holding a basket, walked to each table of guests, held up the basket and asked them for money. Most people would not give her, and then she would linger at the table for a long time until the guests couldn’t help but give her a few pieces of change, or drove her away with a cold face.

       She walked all the way to Chen Yuncheng’s table, and when she raised her head to see Chen Yuncheng’s face clearly, she was obviously taken aback for a moment, and without saying anything, she carried the basket and was about to leave.

       “Wait a minute,” Chen Yuncheng called out to her, “Why don’t you want our money?”

       The little girl looked at him without saying anything.

       Chen Yuncheng took out a hundred yuan from his body and said to her, “Sit down, let’s chat for a while, and I’ll give you the money.”

       At this time, the little girl turned her head and looked across the square.

       The light there was dim, Chen Yuncheng followed her gaze and noticed a middle-aged woman standing there.

       The little girl seemed very hesitant and finally sat down opposite Chen Yuncheng and the others.

       Chen Yuncheng also sat down. He first glanced at Ning Junyan. Ning Junyan raised his hand and pressed it on his back. The palm of his hand was warm and strong, and then whispered in his ear, “I’m here anyway.” So there was no need for him to be afraid of anything.

       The little girl stared straight at the one hundred yuan in Chen Yuncheng’s hand.

       Chen Yuncheng asked her, “Is that woman across the street your relative?”

       The little girl didn’t answer.

       Chen Yuncheng folded several stacks of banknotes in his hand, “If you don’t answer the questions, you will have no money.”

       The little girl said, “It’s my foster mother.”

       The word foster mother made Chen Yuncheng and Ning Junyan frown at the same time.

       Chen Yuncheng asked her, “Where are your biological parents?”

       The little girl shook her head, “There are none.”

       Chen Yuncheng asked again, “Did your foster mother ask you to come out to beg for money?”

       The little girl nodded.

       “How did you come to live with your foster mother?”

       The little girl raised her hand, scratched the surface of the wooden table with her tiny fingertips, and lowered her head without looking at Chen Yuncheng, “In the village, she brought me out after my grandma died.”

       “May I take you to the police?”

       The little girl looked very calm. Although she was still very young, she was not as ignorant of the world as Chen Yuncheng imagined. She knew was aware of things more than most of the people, and she said to Chen Yuncheng, “But I don’t have a home anymore.”

       Chen Yuncheng might be the person in the world who understands the meaning of this sentence best, “But I don’t have a home anymore”, if the police were called, and even her foster mother gone, she would be left all alone in the world, how could she survive?

       At that moment, Chen Yuncheng’s tears fell, and he quickly raised his hand to wipe them away. He said, “There are social welfare institutions, do you want to study? You are still so young, you go back to school to study, as long as you are willing to study, I will always support you.”

       The little girl looked at Chen Yuncheng, and then she looked back across the street.

       The middle-aged woman standing in the dark finally couldn’t hold back and walked towards the crosswalk across the street.

       Chen Yuncheng was not afraid of her but waited patiently for the little girl’s answer.

       But the little girl became nervous. She kept looking back and saw her foster mother getting closer. Her eyes started to turn red, and she asked Chen Yuncheng, “Can I attend school?”

       Chen Yuncheng said softly, “You are so smart, of course you can. Maybe there will even be a family to adopt you, with gentle parents, and no more stealing and begging for money.”

       The little girl stood up suddenly, and she threw herself into Chen Yuncheng’s arms, crying, “I don’t want to go back, I don’t want to steal anything.”

       Chen Yuncheng stood up holding her and walked towards the police booth on duty near the square.

       The middle-aged woman ran over quickly, shouting as she ran, “Someone is kidnapping my daughter! Help!” She pointed at Chen Yuncheng.

       Chen Yuncheng didn’t stop, Ning Junyan stood up and looked at the woman coldly.

       The policeman on duty heard the noise and came out of the police booth. Chen Yuncheng handed over the crying little girl to him, then turned around and pointed at the middle-aged woman.

       The middle-aged woman suddenly realised something, turned around and ran in panic, and a policeman quickly chased after her.

       Ning Junyan walked to Chen Yuncheng’s side.

       Chen Yuncheng’s eyes were still red, and he said to him, “I always thought, it would be great if I could meet such a person when I was young.”

       Ning Junyan held his hand, “Then I was lucky that I met one.”

       End of main story.

Tbh I cried a bit when translating this chapter.
Especially in the part where Yuncheng told Guan Anlin the same thing Junyan had been saying to him about what’s there to be afraid of when I’m here part. Boy had come a long way… And also the part where he wished someone saved them when they were still children… It felt really emotional…
