Thank you so much!!
Although there is no hope for her boyfriend to suddenly become a businessman right out of school, hope is something that can be gained by searching a little, right?
Anyway, they haven’t planned to have children yet. With each other, what hardships couldn’t they deal with? If they work together in the future, they will always get through it.
This is also a change for Qi Jingshu, who was fresh out of school and still naïve. Otherwise, any girlfriend would feel uneasy when she heard that her boyfriend had resigned and wanted to do business.
“There is a lottery station in front. Accompany me to buy a lottery ticket.”
She was thinking about whether she should lower her requirements and find a job to help her family share their burdens as soon as possible when she heard the voice of her boyfriend next to her. Qi Jingshu was stunned. “A lottery ticket?”
“Yeah, invest two dollars a day. Maybe one day I’ll win the lottery. That’s tens of millions of dollars, and then ah… I’ll have money to buy a house and a car, and also, to support you.”
Qi Jingshu was about to say something but then choked back at her sweetheart’s words.
Mingyan, he really… speaks so directly.
The lottery station owner saw an old acquaintance and smiled. “Still gonna buy that set of numbers?”
“Yeah, or buy that one.”
Wei Mingyan handed the lottery ticket he just bought to his girlfriend and showed it to her. “If this lottery ticket wins the prize, my small company can also open up. Come on, put it in your pocket.”
Winning the lottery wasn’t that easy.
Qi Jingshu wanted to laugh at her boyfriend’s naivety, but she looked at his eyes full of hope and swallowed her words silently.
She nodded affirmatively. “Okay! When you win the prize, we’ll start a big company!”
Wei Mingyan smiled on his good-looking face and pulled his girlfriend’s hand towards the school.
“It’s time for Jiayu to leave school.”
“Yeah, I’m still picking up Jiayu today.”
Qi Jingshu nodded and looked at her watch. “There’s still half an hour left.”
“It’s okay, half an hour isn’t much. Let’s go wait for a while and talk about our future kids and stuff.”
“Don’t be so childish, we’re not even married yet.”
“I thought we were getting married soon?”
The two came to the school gate, talking and laughing, when they saw a man with a hoodie holding a child in his arms and getting into a van.
Someone was chasing behind and shouting, “Kidnapping, kidnapping, call the police quickly!!”
Qi Jingshu subconsciously looked at the child in the man’s arm, and her eyes suddenly widened.
That is …
The man beside her, like an arrow, shot over.
“Hurry up and call the police!!! Someone went into the school to kidnap a child. Somebody!!”
“Over there, stop him!!”
Amidst the chaotic shouting around them, the van barreled into the crowd.
People ducked away in panic, and the teacher and security guard chasing behind them could only watch the van drive away.
No, not just that van.
Qi Jingshu had never run so fast. She ran behind the car frantically, but could only watch as the man, his face flushed with pain, pulled at the car door and made off with the car.
Wei Mingyan grabbed the door before the man closed the door, but after all, he was an ordinary teacher who didn’t exercise much. After he grabbed the door, he didn’t have the strength to take another step.
People in the vehicle suddenly shut the door, and a sharp pain shot through his hand. The pale teacher, who had never suffered, clenched his jaw and gripped tighter without uttering a word.
The man cursed as he drove while distractedly picking up an ashtray and smashing it at Wei Mingyan’s head. Wei Mingyan gritted his teeth, braced his legs, and climbed in a little bit along the door of the car.
Someone kicked at him, but, as if he couldn’t feel the pain, he slowly but surely, climbed in.
Enough to reach the little girl who was in the car, unconscious.
“You are good, aren’t you!!”
Someone kept kicking and hitting him. With some difficulty Wei Mingyan reached out and grabbed Qi Jiayu’s small soft hand.
He wanted to save the child.
The car was driving at a high speed, and the criminal saw how the man didn’t respond however hard he beat him. In a fit of rage, his hands loosened from the steering wheel, trying to push Wei Mingyan off.
The car swayed and collided with other cars.
Qi Jiayu has been very happy today. Mom and Dad said they would not work overtime today, and they would cook her a big meal. Her aunt also gave her a gift and promised her a big teddy bear for her birthday next week.
She loved teddy bears so much that she had always wanted them, but she never told her family.
She knew that Mom and Dad have worked so hard to make money, and she can’t add to the burden for them.
But her aunt was so good. She knew Jiayu liked teddy bears and said she would give one to her.
Teacher Wei was also very nice to her. He said that when Jiayu celebrated her birthday, he would also give her a big, big teddy bear.
Qi Jiayu always felt apologetic to Teacher Wei. Teacher Wei was so good to her, but she was still secretly afraid of him and hated him. She didn’t dare to tell Teacher Wei that she was afraid, as she was afraid that Teacher Wei would be sad.
She was very sad when she was hated by a lot of classmates in her old school.
But now, it’s different. She was attending a new school where all the students were very kind to her, and she has made good friends.
They knew her birthday would be next week, and they said that they would give her a present too.
Qi Jiayu had never received a gift from a friend. She was really happy and looking forward to next week.
Mom and Dad will definitely buy her a delicious cake, and she will share it with everyone.
The students are nice, the teachers are nice, it’s like being in heaven.
Her last class today was physical education. The teacher took them to play a lot of fun games. Qi Jiayu had a good time. While they were taking a break, she and her best friends sat under the tree and told each other their little secrets.
Suddenly, the bad guys showed up.
Her mouth was covered and she couldn’t make a sound. She didn’t know why she was dizzy. She saw her best friend crying and catching up to her. She wanted to save her, but it was dangerous.
After that, she drowned in darkness.
Qi Jiayu had many terrible dreams, in which her parents were crying, her Aunt was kneeling on the ground, her face was full of tears, and her mother was holding a big and beautiful doll and shaking all over.
Was it a shiver of pain? Was Mom in pain?
Although she didn’t know why Mom and Dad were crying, and why her Aunt wanted to say sorry, she still wanted to comfort everyone.
What’s the matter?
Jiayu will kiss you, don’t cry, ok?
“Jiayu, my Jiayu …”
“Dad is wrong, please, come back, Jiayu …”
Isn’t Jia Yu right here?
Dad isn’t wrong, Dad is very good.
A weak voice sounded, and Qi Jiayu opened her eyes slightly, as if she had been pulled back. She felt her head hurt a little, and wanted to look around, but what she saw was only darkness.
The voice from above was hoarse, she didn’t know how many times it shouted like this, “Wake up, Jiayu…”
The small child reacted and realized that she seemed to be in someone’s arms. She couldn’t remember what happened, and her tone was confused. “Teacher Wei?”
“Jiayu, are you hurt? Does it hurt anywhere?” Wei Mingyan asked nervously.
Qi Jiayu replied in confusion, “No, I just feel dizzy.”
The person holding her seemed relieved, although Qi Jiayu still felt a little afraid of the darkness. “Teacher Wei, where are we?”
“We …” Wei Mingyan coughed, his tone was still so gentle, but his voice was hoarse. “We were playing a game of hide-and-seek, has Jiayu ever played it?”
“Played! The teacher also taught us today!” Qi Jiayu was happy again when talking about her newly learned games.
“That’s good. Jiayu, you start counting now. How much can Jia Yu count at most? Can you count from 300?”
Qi Jiayu moved her body when her hands suddenly touched something sticky, but then her little head didn’t think much about it. She answered her teacher’s words, “Yes, Aunty taught me.”
“Ok, we’re gonna play hide-and-seek now. During this time, Teacher won’t make a sound, so you can count. If you hear a sound outside, count loudly, but count slowly, and when you reach 300, you can open your eyes, okay?”
The man above had indeed stopped making sounds, and Qi Jiayu obediently closed her eyes and began to count loudly and slowly.
“One … two … three …”
When she counted to fifty, there was the sound of someone talking outside. Qi Jiayu recalled Teacher Wei’s words, and kept her eyes closed, and her voice added some volume. “Fifty-two! Fifty-three! Fifty-four!”
“There’s someone inside, it is a child’s voice. Hurry up, hurry up and push the bricks away!”
“It’s a child. The child is protected by an adult. She’s not injured. Hurry up and hold her up …”
With bright lights swaying around, and the sounds of people making noises around them, Qi Jiayu couldn’t help but quietly opened her eyes, which was bright red.
She was stunned and looked up, but she could only see the man’s face covered with blood and his eyes closed tightly.
Qi Jiayu winced out a cry and reached out to shake the unconscious man above her, but was even more frightened by the sticky blood on her own hands.
Only then did she find that she was held tightly by Wei Mingyan and had no wounds on her body, while Wei Mingyan, who protected her, was covered in blood.
Qi Jiayu was cradled tearfully in a familiar embrace as the sound of a police car arriving sounded.
“Jiayu, my Jiayu, you scared Mom to death…”
It was Mom’s voice …
As if she had found her reliance, the little girl clung to her Mother’s skirt and sobbed. “Teacher bled a lot… Teacher said, we were playing hide and seek. I closed my eyes and counted, he… a lot of blood…”
She was frightened, confused, and didn’t even know what she was talking about.
Even her little brain couldn’t comprehend what was going on.
It was not until she grew up that she realized how she survived.
Sister-in-law Qi looked at the man who was covered in blood and closed her eyes with gratitude and tears in her eyes.
If it wasn’t for him, Jiayu would have …
Qi Jingye was also less picky than before and carefully moved the man to the ambulance.
When Wei Mingyan woke up, it was already the night a day after.
He blinked and looked at his girlfriend lying beside the bed.
Qi Jingshu jumped up with red eyes almost the next second. “Mingyan, you scared me to death. Mingyan, you’ve been sleeping all day and night, the doctor said that if you won’t wake up…”
Her tears fell down her cheeks, but before more tears could fall, Wei Mingyan coughed weakly and looked at the sky outside. “It’s almost 8 o’clock, it’s time for the lottery poll.”
