This was the first time that Mo Qianren was seeing the sun rise from the city. He couldn’t help but turn to the side and look at the young girl staring at the bright golden-red sphere with a gentle smile. Both her black eyes reflected the sun, like two mini burning suns in her orbs, shining so brightly he had to squint his eyes, a little dazed.
“A new day is here once more,” Mu Rulan said, turning to Mo Qianren with a large smile.
Mo Qianren returned to his senses, and said, “And so what? The earth spins every day.”
“That’s right, but not everyone has the chance to welcome a new day,” she stared at the sun, her eyes filled with fascination. She mumbled, “Such beautiful colors. People who can see this every day are blessed.”
As long as people lived on, their lives were already quite blissful.
The sunlight was scorching, but Mo Qianren continued gazing at Mu Rulan. His face slowly began to reveal a hint of conflict.
There it was again. This girl, with such a youthful face, spoke such mature words tinged with the cruelty of life. It was as if she wasn’t a teenager in her prime but rather an old person, rocking in a chair while exclaiming about the evanescence of life.
“Most people that live feel suffering.” Translated by The Novelst
“That’s because most people don’t learn to be satisfied.”
“Those who know to be satisfied, though they are happy, they are never able to obtain anything better.” The world was not a fairytale setting. Only those who experienced greed could strive for more.
Mu Rulan remained silent for a few seconds, before replying softly, “That’s true.”
That was why those who limit themselves with satisfaction would easily be devoured by the greedy. As for the greedy, most of them would dig themselves into a hole and shoot themselves in the foot.
Mu Rulan smiled deeply. She herself could be considered one of the greediest people in the world, right?
Would it be possible that someday another psycho would suddenly appear and capture her, and turn her into a puppet like she had turned others? Or maybe they would kill her, dismember her, cut her into pieces, cook and eat her, chill her in the refrigerator or simply throw her away in the trash?
It was interesting to consider.
She was suddenly excited – it would be interesting then.
In the afternoon, Mu Rulan’s room had a few guests come to visit.
“Rulan ah, I’m terribly sorry. I didn’t expect this to happen,” said the headmaster of Ziyuan, holding onto Mu Rulan’s hand to apologize.
Ever since someone at Liu Silan dropped that bombshell, claiming the person to hit Mu Rulan was An Youming, it had caused a great ruckus in each school. Ziyuan High School was currently being paraded against on the internet, so the headmaster had no choice but to personally bring him for a visit.
“That’s right, that’s right. Miss Mu, we’ve already taught this little punk a lesson. I hope you can find it in you to forgive him. He’s been repenting for his mistakes over the last few days. Youming! What are you standing there for, quickly come and apologize to Miss Mu!”
Both his parents continued bowing to Mu Rulan, afraid that Mu Rulan didn’t want to forgive them and would make things difficult for their An Family business.
“She’s not even dead, what’s there to apologize for? Oi, your little brothers already beat me up like this – aren’t we even?” The young man had several bruises on his face, but that didn’t diminish his playboy look.
“You little brat! What nonsense are you babbling?!” Father An was so angry that he raised his hand in preparation to slap him, but An Zuozuo quickly grabbed onto that arm.
“Father, don’t!” An Zuozuo teared up and turned to Mu Rulan to beg, “Senior Mu, could you forgive my brother? It’s all because of me that he carelessly drove a car that wasn’t ready yet. It’s my fault, Senior Mu…”
Mu Rulan quietly looked at them talking between themselves. Then she looked at the young boy who didn’t want to apologize from beginning to end, before bursting into sudden laughter. The soft chuckling quieted the room very quickly.
Mu Rulan said, “If you want us to be even, you still owe me at least an arm and a leg.”
An Youming’s body stiffened up. He looked at Mu Rulan in disbelief, only to hear her continue, “We’re not even – consider the rule a life for a life. Unless you apologize and I decide to forgive you, you’ll owe me one as long as your limbs remain intact.”
An Youming stared at Mu Rulan, realizing too late that this girl didn’t seem to be as weak and useless as he thought.
He suddenly understood why Mu Rusen and Mu Rulin were so obedient to their sister.
This girl was definitely not an idiot with only kindness in her heart. When she confronted the people who hurt her, she would also seek an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
This was funny. Before they had arrived to the hospital, An Zuozuo kept mumbling to him about how kind Mu Rulan was, to just speak to her and she would definitely forgive him and ask the students of Liu Silan High to stop attacking their family and Ziyuan High School as well…
Shit, it was impossible! Translated by The Novelst
It was either to beg for her forgiveness or to break an arm and a leg for her. He saw this clearly within those beautiful eyes.
The young boy was very stubborn. He wasn’t willing to apologize to Mu Rulan, but if he didn’t he would never be able to raise his head. So he did not apologize, and Mu Rulan did not say anything about forgiving him, either.
