Zhu Qing’an’s expression changed slightly, he pursed his lips and coldly glared at the woman who had come to make trouble.
This person wasn’t his mother, but his “foster mother”.
The numerous gray memories of his childhood related to this woman were surging in his mind.
At that time, he should have been spoiled by his parents, but after his parents disappeared, he was taken by this woman to work in her restaurant as a child laborer under the name of adoption.
From then on, all that awaited him was not enough sleep, not enough food, and endless work in the back kitchen of the underground restaurant. Some shadows remained in his mind that couldn’t be healed.
Now the owner of the underground restaurant was on her knees in front of him, desperate.
The woman’s fingers were sunk deep into the ground, her hair was a mess, her clothes were ragged. He could see that after he left, she didn’t have a good time. Her voice was dry and muffled: “Xiao An ah! I’m the mother who adopted you! Why did you run away by yourself and leave your mother alone!”
She almost rolled on the floor, a few drops of liquid squeezed out of the corners of her eyes, and her voice took on a bit of desolation: “Xiao An! You are a wolf! I have worked so hard to raise you …… and you just left mommy behind! Mom’s restaurant closed down! Mom had a hard time!”
“……” Zhu Qing’an was silent.
When Zhu Qing’an was sixteen, he took advantage of the woman’s absence one afternoon, packed up his things and left secretly, running incognito to the imperial capital.
The woman couldn’t find him.
But now …… Zhu Qing’an had become a star, and his fame was so high. It was impossible for her to not see him. In addition, the woman’s life wasn’t good, the restaurant closed down, lost her economic resources, her only hope was to depend on Zhu Qing’an again. Even if the other party was once a child laborer who was abused by her.
The anchor who came to adopt the animal, heard the commotion at the door, rushed over. The first thing she saw was the crazy woman on the ground, and she frowned, “Hey! What are you doing here?”
When the woman saw someone coming, she made more noise and kept repeating the words: “I’m Xiao An’s mother, I worked hard to raise him. After he grew up, he didn’t care about me …… He’s rich now, and he didn’t repay me …… he wants me to starve and die poor!”
“Really?” The anchor obviously didn’t believe her.
The woman didn’t come by herself, she called a lot of news media, countless cameras on her and Zhu Qing’an in the shooting.
Showbiz, family, ethical …… this kind of news could always win attention.
Zhu Qing’an’s ears buzzed and his throat went dry.
He didn’t say much, he just coldly dropped a sentence: “You …… are not my mother.”
“Xiao An! How can you do this!” The woman was even more desperate: “Do you remember who accompanied you to the amusement park when you were a child?”
Amusement park ……
Those words struck deep inside Zhu Qing’an’s heart, and he, who had always been mild-tempered, suddenly yelled, “You didn’t go to the amusement park with me!”
–The underground restaurant was near the amusement park where his parents had gone with him.
Every time he looked there, he was only scolded.
“You didn’t raise me at all! All you did was tell me to work endlessly! I had to be beaten if I couldn’t finish, and the only meal I had every day was the thin gruel you had left over …… At that time, I would rather be alone on the streets than be under your control.”
When Zhu Qing’an said that, the reporters instantly fell silent.
The reporters believed Zhu Qing’an more than they believed the wretched woman.
The woman was pierced with the truth, her eyes were red: “How dare you slander mom ……”
The anchor next to her looked away in disgust, she hurriedly said to Zhu Qing’an: “Leave her alone, the more you do, the more distracted you are. Let’s go back.”
Zhu Qing’an glanced at her coldly, walked back inside the base gate and heavily closed the gate.
She had thought the other would continue to argue with her, but she didn’t expect the other to not even want to care.
Stunned, she remained on the ground.
“This matter, don’t worry, your agency will definitely send a lawyer to help you deal with it, you just need to provide evidence.” The anchor, who knew a little bit about the entertainment industry, comforted him.
Zhu Qing’an and her returned to the cub’s living place.
The remaining three had picked out the cubs that suited them.
The builder already had his favorite cub in his arms, a canine cub from the planet Pica, it was especially cute.
Zhu Qing’an slightly relaxed, “If you find a cub you like, come to me and fill out a form, and then you can take it away.”
The builder rubbed the little cub’s head and sighed a few times: “My mother always wanted a Pica Star cub, it was her lifelong dream. I couldn’t find one, but I never thought I’d get one from you.”
The Pika star cubs had the ability to heal the heart, and his mother suffered from mental illness.
Zhu Qing’an: “Congratulations.”
Although he was upset inside, he was still quite happy that his cubs finally had a home.
He was looking forward to what kind of new life the cubs would have when they left.
The remaining four people, one by one, also found their favorite cubs. Zhu Qing’an led them to fill out the forms and then sent them away.
Sending off the first guests, Zhu Qing’an was relieved.
The woman at the entrance of the base had already left.
But the reporters the woman brought with her must have already made up the news and uploaded it to Starnet.
Zhu Qing’an wrinkled his brow and returned to his room, wanting to open his light computer to see what had become of it.
There were several missed calls from his agent.
He called him back first.
He quickly picked up the phone, the other’s tone was wrapped in a bit of concern: “Zhu Qing’an, are you okay? The matter today …… The agency already knows …… we will arrange a lawyer for you. Just don’t worry, don’t get upset because of these things.”
The agent believed in Zhu Qing’an. He also knew that Zhu Qing’an’s parents had disappeared since childhood and he had a dark childhood experience in between. Now he had no one to rely on, which was heartbreaking.
The woman who suddenly appeared was probably the culprit.
“It’s okay. I’m already used to it.” Zhu Qing’an laughed lightly.
His emotions weren’t affected by this, he had long seen the woman’s character clearly.
He even wanted to take this opportunity to retaliate and let go of his anger.
“You should go on Weibo first, your fans have experienced a lot of mood swings.”
He froze for a moment then hurriedly turned off the communication and boarded Weibo.
The anchor who came to adopt a cub in his base, unintentionally live-streamed the process.
The woman in the video was a mess, her clothes were ragged, her voice was desolate, and she kept blaming Zhu Qing’an for leaving her behind.
— the first thing about her was that she looked very miserable. But the second look, she inexplicably gave people a feeling of disgust and discomfort.
Everyone’s eyes were on Zhu Qingan, who was next to her.
It was the first time they saw the always gentle teenager, show such an expression.
–His eyebrows were slightly wrinkled, fair face flushed, dark glistening eyes containing a variety of complex emotions such as anger.
They could see that there was another truth in this matter. And the truth wasn’t what she said.
The fans were boiling, afraid of what would happen to the teenager, they went to the comment section and private messages to reassure him.
[Don’t be afraid! I believe in you!]
[ Don’t worry about that person! Someone will clarify the truth for you!]
[hug Ann ~~QWQ An must be very sad now, hiding in the corner crying!!]
[The heartache is too much!]
Zhu Qing’an looked at these comments and couldn’t help but smile.
His little fans, they were really worried about him ……
He sent out a post.
@ZhuqinganV: [Thank you all for your support, I’m fine. #heart]
Shortly after he posted it, he received a private message from a special concerned person.
The only person’s opinion he cared about …… was Qin Hengyi.
Qin Hengyi only sent him one private message, which was a screenshot.
The screenshot was the “I’m fine” tweet that Zhu Qing’an posted just now.
The picture was accompanied by a question: [Who is that woman?]
Zhu Qing’an thought for a while and decided to the truth.
The woman wasn’t his mother, but the person who forced him as a child to work as a child laborer in an underground restaurant.
Now that she was down and out, she wanted to make him her financial source.
It didn’t take long.
Qin Hengyi quickly replied.
[Zhu Qing’an’s lover: I’ll help.]
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
If it was another game character that said this to him, he’d definitely have a skeptical attitude.
But Qin Hengyi was different.
This game could do anything …… Perhaps, this matter, could really be solved by it.
Zhu Qing’an’s heart warmed.
[Zhu Qing’an: Thank you Mr. Qin!]
He didn’t forget to send an emoji package of a small doughnut bubbling with love.
[Zhu Qing’an’s lover: It’s okay :)]
Zhu Qing’an and Qin Hengyi said goodbye.
He turned off Weibo and flipped carelessly on his light desktop as he looked at the “False Love” software.
Although the new scene was still being updated, but he still couldn’t help but open the game.
Several text boxes popped up in the game interface.
【Your lover has purchased a small gift for you: Discerning.]
[ Discerning: a special prop. It allows the player to clarify what is currently being slandered without having to defend it. The slanderer will have to be punished.]
Zhou Qing’an froze.
This prop …… was too powerful, right?
It was comparable to the previous cooking golden finger and big character experience ticket …….
Zhu Qing’an had seen how powerful the first two props were, and this one, he absolutely couldn’t underestimate.
And he was inwardly relieved by this.
When the woman saw that Zhu Qing’an was ignoring her, she was so angry that she almost suffocated.
But at the same time, Zhu Qing’an didn’t take any retaliatory action against her, so she had the courage to fool around, – as long as she gained the sympathy of the masses, then her next path, would be much smoother.
She hired a news agency to broadcast a half-truth.
[@sheepnews agency: The famous artist @ZhuQingan, whose parents disappeared when he was a child, was painstakingly brought up by his adoptive mother who ran a small restaurant. When he grew up, he abandoned his old adoptive mother and ignored her, even making vicious remarks!]
The post was sent out not long after, but Zhu Qing’an fans flooded them with spittle…
[We’ll show you today what it means to make vicious remarks!]
[What the hell? Ha ha, vicious words? We’ll let you know what vicious words are today!]
[painstakingly? Whose painstakingly is working more than ten hours a day, eating a bowl of porridge, and the object is still a child!]
[ ??????? That woman used to use An to make money, but now she has no money. She still wants to make money by slandering An to win sympathy??]
[You won’t get any money from An!]
[An’s lover is very powerful, be careful of his lover retaliating against you?]
At the same time, the news agency and the woman also received a letter from the court regarding the lawsuit from Dreamboat Entertainment.
The news agency was far from expecting that its momentary greed for quick money would have the consequence of being sued in court, and the entertainment industry had blacklisted it. This news agency, the future of the road would certainly be difficult.
The woman noticed a few words from the dense comments.
Zhu Qing’an’s lover ……?
She remembered – Zhu Qing’an grew up as a very withdrawn and quiet child who didn’t like to deal with outsiders.
How could he have a lover?
Having a lover means he had someone he could rely on ……
A bad premonition emerged.
Before Zhu Qing’an went to bed, he also received a notice from the court.
His agency had taken the woman to court –
The court date was tomorrow.
It was outrageous for her to slander someone for no reason, not to mention the fact that he was an artist who lived off his reputation.
And the court was taking this matter very seriously, as if the truth was exactly the opposite of what the woman said, it could lead to a series of child labor cases.
Employing child laborers and abusing them was a very serious crime in the Empire.
Zhu Qing’an looked at so many people supporting him and couldn’t help feeling a little touched. For the first time, he felt the power of a group.
The light computer’s slightly blue screen light was reflected on the teenager’s fair and handsome face, and the corners of the teenager’s lips contained a smile.
His initial choice to enter the entertainment industry wasn’t wrong.
Zhu Qing’an turned off the light computer, and picked up the little puppet.
The little puppet also heard his thanks, its red button eyes gazed at him.
Zhu Qing’an tucked the little puppet into his arms, put the little puppet’s little hands and feet on his arms, and pressed the other’s soft head against his cheek.
“Good night, Mr. Qin.”
The next day.
The court session started as promised.
But the main figure in this matter – Zhu Qing’an, didn’t appear in court.
He chose to watch the live broadcast at home.
He always disliked getting involved in such matters.
Zhu Qing’an finished his breakfast, tucked away the little puppet, sat at his desk, and turned on his light computer.
He knitted another new outfit for the little puppet, a little red vest and shorts, and a soft red scarf.
It looked especially cute.
Zhu Qing’an looked at the little puppet sitting in his arms.
He couldn’t help but sigh – if Qin Hengyi …… was also so well behaved, how good it would be.
The court time soon arrived.
Zhu Qing’an tucked into the little puppet and seriously watched.
At the same time, he couldn’t help being curious, how exactly did the game reward work.
As soon as the live broadcast started.
Zhu Qing’an saw the woman sitting in the courtroom.
She had dressed herself up messily, her clothes were torn and tattered, she used some makeup, and her face looked haggard. She wanted to use her appearance to win sympathy.
Zhu Qing’an knew her character well ……
She couldn’t possibly treat herself poorly because of the restaurant closing down and she was living in the doldrums. She would steal just to dress herself up than live peacefully.
She was now dressed in this way, to get Zhu Qing’an’s money.
If the lawsuit went her way, then Zhu Qing’an would be responsible for supporting her for the rest of her life.
The court began, the woman didn’t wait for the judge to finish, she covered her face and cried miserably.
“I had a hard time raising him …… but he left without me, no one knows how hard my life has been all these years. The restaurant closed down and I got myself into a batch of debts ……
Now that he has money, he ignored me and even took me to court!!!
I’m his mother!!!”
The staff couldn’t help but say, “Please be quiet, there will be a chance for you to speak. Also, you are Zhu Qing’an’s adoptive mother, not his mother. Please be careful with your words ……”
The woman didn’t listen and continued to cry.
The judge couldn’t stand it and ordered someone to control her before interfering with court discipline.
The comments in the live broadcast, too, couldn’t look away.
[What kind of person is this! This is too much! It looks like she’s trying to do this on purpose!]
[OK, OK, everyone knows that you are miserable. Can you stop arguing?]
[ I’m glad An An didn’t come, An An is not suitable for this kind of place, so he won’t get upset!]
Zhu Qing’an: “……”
He looked at the woman’s haunted appearance and wanted to laugh a little.
“False Love” suddenly sent a message.
Zhu Qing’an frowned, a little puzzled, he first quit the live broadcast, then opened the game.
[Congratulations! The prop purchased for you by your lover is running! Please pay attention!]
Zhu Qing’an: “!!!”
He was slightly excited and increasingly curious about the effect of this prop.
He exited the game and reopened the live stream.
The trial had reached the point where the defendant was allowed to speak.
That was, the woman finally had a chance to speak.
The woman had a lot to say.
She had invited a lot of news media to come and watch in order to expand her influence.
Whether she could win the case and get Zhu Qing’an’s right to support her depended on this speech if she had the chance –
If it failed, the consequences were unthinkable.
The woman stood up, her under eyes were covered with dark circles, she stared at the judge and her hair was disheveled, giving people a very uncomfortable feeling.
She cleared her throat and cleared her mind. Most of what she had to say …… was made up.
The woman opened her mouth-
Suddenly, a very strange feeling of urge rushed up her throat, a feeling that was frantically pushing her to say something else different –
She forced herself to ignore the feeling, but the more she ignored it, the stronger it became.
Then she finally couldn’t resist, and her mouth felt like it was being controlled.
The woman stood in the middle of the courtroom, her harsh, shrill voice ringing out, and it was clear that she was trying very hard to suppress her voice, but couldn’t do it.
“I’m here and I want to say sorry for Zhu Qing An……”
“Zhu Qing’an’s childhood home was next to mine, and after his parents disappeared, I did not send him to an orphanage as the police had suggested
Instead, I kept him in my underground restaurant.
What a perfect free grunt for a healthy and active child.
I trapped him in the restaurant and made him work day and night, cooking, helping, washing dishes, stocking …… and even taking care of daily things for me.
His daily meal consisted of a small bowl of leftover thin gruel. If he wanted to go out and eat anything else, I would give him a hard time ……
My restaurant prospered under his care.
But he escaped the restaurant when he was sixteen years old.
I thought he would be very down and out, but I never expected him to become a very popular star.
I had bad thoughts and thought I could use the fact that I had ‘adopted’ him to get a bunch of money from him that would support me for the rest of my life ……”
The more the woman said, the more panicked she was, her face was white, her hands and feet were shaking, her teeth were chattering up and down, trying to bite her lips as she spoke.
But no matter how desperately she tried, truth spilled out of her mouth without mercy.
The crowd in the room was furious, and some of the audience members had sinewy hands, trying their best to resist the urge to teach the woman a lesson.
The woman’s speech didn’t end there, next, she told the even more shocking truth –
“After Zhu Qing’an left, I became more and more uncomfortable with the lack of free hard labor. I couldn’t stand it, so I abducted a child on the street ……”
“Let him work in my restaurant.”
“Until now, he has remained there for several years now, and is sick ……”
The reporters she had personally invited to record her words was speechless.
Everyone didn’t wait for the woman to finish, they instantly boiled up, one after another trying to get up from their seats.
The judge also didn’t react for a long time.
“Can’t stand such a person!”
“I beg the judge to arrest her quickly!”
Before this trial started, everyone simply thought that this woman was just a shameless old scoundrel.
Unexpectedly, the truth was much blo0dier than they imagined.
Zhu Qing’an froze in front of the light computer, not knowing what to say.
…… This may be the role of the reward ……
If there was no such thing, then these truths, would be covered up forever?
Zhu Qing’an didn’t dare to think about it.
It took a long time, only after a while did the court staff pacify everyone and said that they would definitely deal with this matter strictly!
That woman was also frozen in shock after finishing her words. For the first time, she had doubts about her life …… why she could not control her mouth?
Her whole life was ruined.
Zhu Qing’an quietly watched the entire live court hearing before silently turning off the live broadcast.
He opened Weibo and read most of the comments.
The imperial police department had already issued a tweet and immediately sent someone to rescue the child.
He also made a post.
[@ZhuQinganV: The clear is clear, the muddy is muddy.]
In the meantime, he applied to the police department – when that child was rescued – he would pay the full cost of that child’s studies until adulthood.
Since he joined the entertainment industry, he had been paid a lot and had his own savings and investments.
He had the ability to enable people who had the same experience as him to have a happier future.
A day had passed, yet the heat of the matter hadn’t dropped.
The fans abused and spat on that woman, but also didn’t forget what happened to Zhu Qing’an.
If Zhu Qing’an hadn’t dared to face the matter head on …… then this series of truth would have never had the opportunity to surface.
The woman who did so much evil, got the punishment she deserved.
Zhu Qing’an was of course also very happy, the matter that had subconsciously lingered in his mind, was finally settled.
He finished adjusting his emotions and was ready to get back to his intense work.
The food group that he had previously agreed to join the food online store, had already set up the online store.
He was also invited to join.
The empire’s gourmet online store wasn’t an online store in the traditional sense, where the seller’s production volume and sales volume had a lot to do with making less, and selling less.
Nowadays, the food online store only needed the seller to make one serving, no shipping and delivery. The food made was given to professional instruments to scan and upload the look, taste and touch of the food to the online store. Buyers could buy an unlimited number of holographic food models in the online store, and then wear a holographic helmet to taste.
It was convenient to eat yet not to gain weight.
However, there was currently very little market for food online stores, and few people opened them. Mainly because it was difficult to make dishes that met the standards of ancient Earth cuisine, plus everyone was greedy for convenience, so they directly consumed nutrients. They didn’t know how the masses would react to the food online store.
That food group opened a food online store, it was a risk.
After Zhu Qing’an talked to the head of the food group about the online store, he opened his light computer and wanted to see the legendary food online store.
The interface of the online store was very simple, only a row of vacant virtual food shelves and purchase buttons.
However, due to Zhu Qing’an’s reputation, the online store already had a good number of fans. It was a relatively good start.
After thinking about it, Zhu Qing’an decided to make yellow peach egg tarts, which he had never made before.
He had a golden finger for cooking so he was brave enough to try some dishes that he had never challenged before.
A new scene was about to open, so he could just as well send a yellow peach egg tart to Qin Hengyi.
He took out the prepared ingredients from the kitchen and started making it.
Stir the cream, milk and powdered sugar together to make a round tart shell.
Then cut the yellow peaches into small pieces and put them into the tart shell with the tart mixture, then bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
The tarts would be decorated with fresh peaches.
It was very easy to make and delicious.
The light creamy smell of the egg tarts wafted out, smelling very sweet, it smelt like milk candy.
The tart was placed in the newly purchased scanning device.
After a moment.
The holographic pattern of the egg tart was scanned and projected in mid-air by the projector.
Zhu Qing’an operated on the light computer, entered the price, and then clicked to transfer it into the online store –
The tart was uploaded, and in less than half a minute, the purchase volume skyrocketed.
“Now there’s someone who dares to open an ancient Earth’s food online store?”
A red-haired young man, who unintentionally entered a gourmet online store that claimed to have ancient earth cuisine, exclaimed, “Not many people even dare to do this industry now …… not afraid of being flooded with spit?”
“What?” The person in the same dormitory with the red-haired youth sniffed, he came close to the screen and muttered, “The person who joined is Zhu Qing’an? This person …… I know, a star who is recently becoming popular. Why did he run to cook? Can a star really cook well?”
These two were military school students, as they just returned from training on the Zerg planet.
They hadn’t watched the live broadcast of Zhu Qing’an cooking the New Year’s Eve dinner.
The red-haired youth shook his head: “I’ve tried several food anchors’ food, and none of them tasted as good as our school’s military food. I think the one …… made by Zhu Qing’an will be similar to them. Even the taste of compressed cookies can’t compare.”
His mouth moved but his finger still clicked on the purchase, then he picked up the holographic helmet.
“Hey, you’re going to test the poison?” The person next to him laughed.
“Not so exaggerated. I’ll just try it out.” The red-haired youth ignored them and put on the holographic helmet.
He opened his eyes.
What caught his eyes was a pitch-black space.
There was a small plate in the middle of the space.
On top of the plate was a yellow peach egg tart made by Zhu Qing’an.
The red-haired youth walked in and froze when he smelled the strange and enticing aroma.
He had never smelled this kind of ……
The aroma was like a small hook, hooking him to reach out and pick up the palm-sized yellow peach egg tart.
The egg tart emitted a warm temperature, wrapped in a golden shell, like a small warm golden sun.
He put the tart into his mouth in one bite.
–The egg tart shell melted in his mouth as soon as he ate it, but it didn’t seem dry and greasy at all.
The egg tart that lost its shell wrapping flowed into the mouth like jelly, accompanied by a sweet custard aroma that filled the entire mouth.
The red-haired youth had been sent to military school since he was a child, and most of his food was dry military dry rations.
He had never eaten something so delicious-
He quickly swallowed the egg tart, took off his holographic helmet, and said excitedly, “It’s delicious! You guys come and try it! And ask all the students in the other dormitories to get some too! It’s really delicious!”
Zhu Qing’an’s egg tart inadvertently got the first recommendation.
The sales grew a lot again.
Not long after Zhu Qing’an uploaded the egg tart, he received a congratulatory call from his agent.
“Sales broke 10 million! Good job Zhu Qing’an! It has brought a lot of benefits to that food group! Our agency is very honored! I’m glad to have an artist like you!” The person there was very excited: “After this cooperation, you will definitely be able to get a lot of money and popularity.”
Zhu Qing’an: “Thank you.”
His earnings were really growing.
If there was time, he wanted to take this money to renovate the base, or …… spend it on his paper man.
Agent: “Your current popularity and accumulation is about right, and you can far surpass a large number of other artists. You will soon be able to enter the acting world, our agency is arranging for you to act in a drama. When the time comes, you can look in the direction of a movie star.”
Zhu Qing’an: “……!”
He was happy.
When he first signed up with the agency back then, he was told that he had to accumulate popularity for a period of time before he could officially shoot a movie.
Unexpectedly, he was able to develop so fast.
In the blink of an eye, he could also get a role.
Most of the dramas in the empire were interesting.
He couldn’t help but look forward to it a little.
“Go for it! Don’t get too nervous when you’re working for a food network store, just think of it as relaxing.” The agent laughed, “When your role is approved, you’ll have your hands full again.”
“Thank you, Uncle Chen.” Zhu Qing’an said.
Zhu Qing’an turned off the communication and stretched his back.
He circled around in his light computer, poking the bunny cub one moment and the kitten the next.
Finally, he opened “False Love” to see if the new scene had been changed.
[Welcome back to False Love!]
[Please wait patiently, there are still – 4 hours until the new scene is changed!]
Zhu Qing’an: “…………”
He was a little curious.
The first two new scenes were mermaid and werewolve …… What would it be this time?
Zhou Qing’an tried to guess.
The content of the new scene should correspond to Qin Hengye’s heart knot as a child.
“The sea that never dawns”, “the grassland that is always frozen” …… embodied nothing more than a person’s repressed and closed heart.
Dawn, the ice melted, the scene corresponding to the heart knot would also be untied.
What would be the next knot in Qin Hengyi’s heart that would be reflected?
The next one would be the one that was reflected in Qin Hengyi’s heart.
He was about to take advantage of this time to tease the little cubs in the light desktop.
The doorbell came to his room with a very crisp ding-dong.
Zhu Qingan froze. He pushed open his bedroom door, ready to check who it was.
Standing outside the door wasn’t a parent who had come to visit, nor was it an acquaintance. Instead, it was a police car from the Empire.
Zhu Qing’an inexplicably tensed up, trotted to them and whispered, “Gentlemen, what’s wrong?”
A police officer in the lead stepped forward, “We have gone to search in that criminal’s underground restaurant and successfully rescued that child …… We are also grateful that you volunteered to take care of the child’s study fee.”
Zhu Qing’an’s wrinkled eyebrows loosened, and he responded with a smile: “That’s great! Thank you!”
“But ……” the police officer frowned, his voice slowed down: “I found something related to your parents in a small warehouse in the underground restaurant. There may be clues to your parents inside.”
Zhu Qing’an froze violently.
He remembered very clearly ……
Back then, after his parents disappeared, he wasn’t taken away empty-handed by the woman, she allowed him to pick up some of his things.
But after he came to the underground restaurant, the woman confiscated all those things to prevent him from feeling homesick and wanting to escape.
He didn’t remember what he took then.
He only remembered …… him taking something that was very dear to him.
What kind of thing would be precious to him at that time?
The police took out a small black bag and handed it to Zhu Qing’an: “After so many years, it’s time to return these things to its original owner.”
Zhu Qing’an clutched the bag that still had the residual warmth of his hand, his heart couldn’t stop beating wildly, and his eyes were a little red.
“Thank you ……”
“It’s time for us to go back.”
The police officer waved his hand at him, “And you should stop being sad about the past. The person who hurt you in the past have been sentenced by the law.”
The police left.
Zhu Qing’an didn’t return to the base, he followed a lush path outside the base and came to a small hill.
At the moment the weather was very clear, the light blue sky held a few light white clouds, the air was diffused with the fragrance of earth.
Zhu Qing’an sat on the ground, took out the little puppet hidden in his pocket, and put it aside.
He carefully opened the black bag that may have clues.
–the bag contained a small book.
The little book was very old and old, the corners were rolled up, the paper was yellow and covered with dust.
Childish crooked words were vaguely written on a tattered cover : – diary.
This was his childhood diary.
To be honest, Zhu Qing’an didn’t remember much about his childhood, except for the New Year’s Eve dinner when he was a child.
He also wrote a diary when he was a child ……?
Zhu Qing’an was afraid to break the diary, he very carefully rubbed his hands and carefully opened the book.
The handwriting on the first page was already blurred by dust.
The font was very childish, only two short lines.
The content was probably something about what he ate and did that day.
Zhu Qing’an turned to the next page.
At the same time, he found that the diary began to record the date of the month before his parents disappeared.
During this month …… Did his parents reveal the secret of their future disappearance?
Then, it was written down by him.
Zhu Qing’an looked through the diary seriously.
The handwriting on the second page could gradually be read clearly.
[Mom and Dad said they would take me to the amusement park, happy~]
The third page.
[Soon we will go to the amusement park. I heard that there are Ferris wheel and carousel in the amusement park ……I have never seen those things]
Zhu Qing’an continued to turn.
The next few pages, were full of his childish chatter “to go to the amusement park”
They hadn’t gone…… yet he was still so happy.
He could see that …… he really liked the amusement park.
Although now he couldn’t understand why his childhood self was so obsessed with amusement parks. The heart of a child was always inscrutable.
Even now he still liked amusement parks.
But what he liked today was different from what he liked as a child.
The amusement park in his heart, had simply become a sign of “happiness”.
The most happy laughter of him and his parents existed in the amusement park.
Zhu Qing’an flipped and flipped, finally turning to the page of the amusement park.
[ I went to the amusement park today and had a lot of fun. But I’m a little curious, why did my busy parents, suddenly want to take me there?]
Zhu Qing’an: “…………”
He still hadn’t found a clue about his parents’ disappearance.
It seemed that his expectations of his childhood self were too high.
Zhu Qing’an impatiently turned.
When he saw the page at the end, he suddenly froze and his eyes widened.
The handwriting at the end of the diary, handsome and neat, obviously different from the previous childish words.
It could have been written by his father or mother.
[–Anan, I’m really sorry, we’re going to be away for a while, for an unknown period of time.]
[You don’t have to be afraid of being alone. We are sure that someone will love you in the future and give you happiness that is beyond the reach of ordinary people.
Do you want to know the story of your life? You can ask the one you love.
He may also know where we are.]
Zhu Qing’an read the note his parents left him over and over again, his eyes a little red.
Not far from the hill he was on was the imperial amusement park his parents had taken him to when he was a child.
His base was chosen near the amusement park, also because of that obsession.
The Ferris wheel of the Imperial City amusement park had already started, the huge Ferris wheel towered into the clouds, facing the golden sunlight, it slowly ran, each capsule sliding through the place, leaving a brilliant golden ripple.
If he closed his eyes, he could clearly hear the laughter coming from the amusement park. It was warmed by the sunlight and carried a bit of temperature to one’s ears.
The person who would love him in the future ……
Would take him to the amusement park?
Zhu Qing’an thought.
He gently closed the diary, his arm unintentionally touched the small puppet sitting beside him.
The little puppet was lying quietly on the grass, with red button eyes looking at the pink amusement park in the distance.
The little puppet must have also seen his somewhat volatile expression and his diary.
A notification came from his light computer.
Zhu Qing’an picked it up.
It was from Qin Hengyi.
[What kind of amusement park do you want?]
[I’ll give you one.]
