Jiang Zhen stared at his actions, his small face cold. “Drinking too much wine isn’t good for your health.” Jiang Zhen stood up and walked towards the stairs.
He stood at the bottom of the stairs and shouted, “Little sister, eat!”
The girl responded and dawdled for a while before coming down. Jiang Zhen had already prepared the meal for Jiang Bi. Jiang Bi walked over to her small stool and sat down. She picked up her bowl and started eating.
Jiang Zhen glanced at Jiang Bi and saw that her eyes were slightly red. He knew that this girl must have cried before. Jiang Zhen did not ask her why she was crying, nor did he comfort her. He picked up a few pieces of meat and placed them in Jiang Bi’s bowl, saying, “Eat more.”
Jiang Bi nodded and ate her food.
When his adoptive father saw Jiang Zhen giving most of the meat on the plate to Jiang Bi with his chopsticks, he raised his brows. He wanted to scold Jiang Zhen, but when he thought about how this girl was about to be sent away, he held back.
Eat, eat. You can’t eat much anyway.
Her adoptive father picked at the leftover meat and carrots in the bowl, eating and drinking as he did so. His glass of wine soon saw the bottom, and when he finished one, her adoptive father slid the glass closer to Jiang Bi’s hand. “Get another glass of wine for Dad.”
Jiang Bi did not dare to say anything else. She took the cup and went to pour the wine.
His adoptive father drank three glasses in a row. He was slightly drunk, but he still wanted to drink more. However, there were no more dishes on the table. He could only stop eating and put down the glass.
“Little girl, go wash the dishes. I have something to say to your brother.” Her adoptive father sent Jiang Bi away with one sentence.
Jiang Bi was slightly shorter than Jiang Zhen. When she was boiling water and washing the dishes, she had to stand on the small stool. She was also afraid that the hot water would scald her body, so Jiang Bi’s actions were very careful.
Jiang Zhen looked at his sister, who was busy in the kitchen, and felt terrible*. My sister was so beautiful, she couldn’t be sent to be someone else’s toy!*
Jiang Zhen retracted his gaze and saw his adoptive father take out a bag of dry cigarettes from his pocket. This dry tobacco needed to be removed from the coarse tendons on the leaves and then rolled the soft leaves into a cylinder. He inserted it into the pipe and lit it before smoking.
Jiang Zhen reached out and took two rolls of dry tobacco. “Let me help you.” Jiang Zhen quickly rolled up the cigarettes and handed them to his adoptive father.
His adoptive father took the cigarette and thought about how stubborn this child was when he first came. His adoptive father sighed with emotion. “You’ve really grown up.”
Jiang Zhen didn’t reply. He lowered his head, his thoughts unknown.
His foster father took a hard drag on his cigarette, then opened his yellow teeth and blew out a choking puff of smoke. “Oh Ao Han,” he shouted.
Jiang Zhen looked up at him. “Daddy.”
Her adoptive father looked like he wanted to say something but hesitated. He hesitated for a while before saying in a deep voice, “There’s a family that has taken a liking to your sister and wants to take her over to live with them for a few years. When your sister turns 16, we’ll marry her.”
It was a euphemism to say that he would take Jiang Bi over to live with him for a few years. In fact, it was to send Jiang Bi over as someone else’s toy.
Even though he already knew about this, hearing his foster father personally mention this matter, Jiang Zhen still couldn’t help but become angry.
He stood up abruptly and rejected her with a strong attitude. “I don’t agree with this. She’s still too young.” She hadn’t even had her menstruation period, so she couldn’t be considered a young girl. She was still a child!
Her adoptive father looked up at the thin but tall boy and could not help but snort. “It’s not up to you. It’s a waste of food to raise a little girl at home. It’s her good fortune that someone else has taken a fancy to her.”
His adoptive father didn’t take Jiang Zhen seriously at all. After all, Jiang Zhen was still too young. He was only ten years old and still a child. His adoptive father was only informing Jiang Zhen about this matter.
Jiang Zhen’s anger seemed to have subsided a little. He asked, “Which family took a fancy to her?”
“The Ruan family. The richest family in our county city.”
The Ruan family was very famous in their county city.
“But I heard that the young master of that family has already married three wives. Two of them were beaten to death while the other died from childbirth. Dad, are you sending your sister to die?” Any parents who treated their daughter as a human would not push their daughter into the Ruan family’s fire pit.
After being reprimanded by Jiang Zhen like this, his adoptive father lost his face and his face instantly darkened. “What nonsense are you talking about! It’s those three women’s lives that are not good. If the women are disobedient, it’s only right to beat them up! There’s nothing wrong with Young Master Ruan! Your younger sister is obedient and obedient. The Ruan family will treat her well.”
His adoptive father also knew that Jiang Bi’s life would be over if she went to the Ruan family this time. However, he couldn’t resist the generous conditions offered by the Ruan family. Furthermore, Jiang Bi wasn’t his biological daughter to begin with. Instead of keeping a good-for-nothing at home, he might as well give her away to exchange for some money.
This was a good deal.
His adoptive father understood that he was selling his daughter for glory, but he refused to admit it.
Jiang Zhen knew that his adoptive father had already made his decision. No matter how much he resisted, he could not change his adoptive father’s mind. Jiang Zhen picked up his bag from the stool and rushed upstairs.
“What are you doing!” Her adoptive father roared.
“Do my homework!” Jiang Zhen rushed back to his room with his bag.
After a while, Jiang Bi came upstairs.
She walked cautiously into her brother’s room. She was frightened to see him lying on the bed with a book covering his face.
Jiang Bi stood by the bed and stared at her brother for a long time before saying softly, “Brother, your results are good. You will definitely enter university in the future. If you succeed, don’t ever come back.”
This place ate people.
Jiang Zhen took down the book on his face and looked at his sister with neither joy nor sorrow. He sat up cross-legged and reached out his hand to Jiang Bi. Jiang Bi was overwhelmed and held her brother’s hand. She heard her brother ask, “Are you willing to go to the Ruan family?”
Jiang Bi bit her lip with her pearly white teeth and kept her head lowered without saying a word.
“I understand.” Jiang Zhen pulled his sister into his arms and hugged her. He pressed his cheek against her stomach and closed his eyes. He said in an unpredictable tone, “Brother will protect you. Brother will not let you be bullied. I swear.”
“I believe you.” Jiang Bi said that she believed her brother, but deep down, she knew that her brother could not protect her. This place was too backward, and they were too small to resist.
At night, Jiang Bi fell asleep and was suddenly woken up in the middle of the night.
Jiang Bi opened her eyes groggily and saw Jiang Zhen standing by her bed with a bag on his back.
Jiang Bi was shocked.
“Brother!” Jiang Bi quickly sat up.
Jiang Zhen shushed her and said in a low voice, “Hurry up and get changed. Leave this place with me!”
“Where are we going?” Jiang Bi was so frightened that her face turned pale. Even though the child’s memory was not strong, she could still vaguely remember the incident where her brother was almost beaten to death for escaping.
Therefore, Jiang Bi did not dare to escape anymore.
Jiang Zhen started randomly putting on clothes for Jiang Bi. He put on his clothes and said, “It’s three o’clock now. Everyone in the city is asleep. Leave with me. Big Brother will bring you to China.”
“Brother has already found out that we are very close to China. We can take a car to Nan Yang Province in China. When we get there, we can think of another way!”
Jiang Bi panicked when she heard that. “What should we do if Dad catches us?”
Jiang Zhen paused.
“He won’t.” Jiang Zhen’s expression was normal as he said, “He drank tonight, so he’ll sleep very soundly. He won’t notice us.”
Jiang Bi nodded blankly and followed Jiang Zhen downstairs.
Jiang Zhen told Jiang Bi to wait in the living room while he boldly walked towards his adoptive father’s room. Jiang Bi was extremely anxious and whispered, “Brother, why are you going to Daddy’s room? Aren’t you afraid of waking him up?”
Jiang Zhen had already pushed open his adoptive father’s door. Hearing this, he stopped in his tracks and glanced at the motionless man on the bed. His eyes suddenly turned cold. “No, he won’t. He’s drunk.”
With that, Jiang Zhen walked over to the bed, pulled up his adoptive father’s pants, and found a key in his pocket.
Jiang Zhen took the key and opened the money lock cabinet, taking out all the money inside.
]Jiang Zhen stuffed the money into different places. If she couldn’t fit it, she hid it in Jiang Bi’s socks. Jiang Bi allowed Jiang Zhen to stuff the money into her socks. She stared at her adoptive father who was sleeping on the bed and suddenly grabbed Jiang Zhen’s hand.
“He’s dead, isn’t he?” Three glasses of wine wouldn’t have made Father this drunk.
Jiang Zhen pursed her lips and looked at Jiang Bi deeply before agreeing.
“Brother, you’ve killed someone…” Jiang Bi’s voice was trembling, and her face was visibly pale, looking very pitiful.
Jiang Zhen grabbed Jiang Bi’s hand and told her sternly, “Girl, he forced me. He wants to send you to be a child bride. He wants to force you to die! So he deserves to die!”
Jiang Bi was so frightened that she kept crying. She said helplessly, “What should we do? The police will arrest us.”
“We’ll leave right now and leave through the night!”
Jiang Zhen had planned for this day for too long.
He pulled Jiang Bi and rode his bicycle into the city. At this time, the small county at the border of the State of Yue was very poor, and the bicycle was still the most important means of transportation.
Jiang Zhen rode the bike and brought Jiang Bi out of the city, then abandoned the bike and walked along the cement road. When the sun was about to rise, Jiang Bi was already exhausted, but she still held her brother’s hand, gritted her teeth, and continued walking.
Early in the morning, the bus from the first class got onto the road. Jiang Zhen and Jiang Bi got into the shabby bus and alighted on the old street.
After getting out of the car, Jiang Zhen bought two steamed buns, one for each of them, and wolfed them down. Jiang Zhen brought Jiang Bi to hide and waited until the sky turned dark before pulling Jiang Bi to buy two expensive tickets and getting into a broken-down van that had been smuggled out of the country.
The people in the car were all people who had gone out to work. There were both men and women. The car was heavily overloaded, and Jiang Bi and Jiang Zhen were squeezed into a corner. It was a bumpy ride, and the siblings vomited when they got out of the car.
Jiang Bi vomited so much that even her bile was gone. She squatted by the side of the road and looked at the unfamiliar city in front of her. She asked her brother, “Brother, where are we?”
Jiang Zhen stood in an unfamiliar environment, looking up at the silhouette of the small city in the distance. “This is China…” he murmured. For some reason, he suddenly felt the urge to cry.
Jiang Zhen wiped his tears and waited for everyone else to leave before pulling Jiang Bi to the side of the van and calling the driver.
The driver was smoking. When he heard this, he sized up the pair of children with the gaze of a naked building and said knowingly, “You escaped.”
Jiang Zhen nervously took Jiang Bi’s hand. “I want to make a deal with you,” he told the driver.
“Yo.” The driver found it interesting. This was the first time he had made a deal with such a young child. His interest was piqued. “Tell me, what do you want from me?”
Jiang Zhen said, “I know. You must have some renminbi on you. I want to exchange some money with you.”
The driver sneered and said, “Little friend, this isn’t the State of Yue. The money here is worth a lot. The money you have isn’t even enough to fill the gaps between my teeth.”
Jiang Zhen said, “I’ve checked the exchange rate. I know what the exchange rate is today. I’ll give you all my money. I have five million Vietnamese currency here. How about you give me ten hundred yuan?”
In that era, five million Vietnamese currency could be exchanged for about 1,400 yuan. Jiang Zhen had exchanged four hundred yuan for one thousand yuan from the driver.
The driver looked at him deeply before saying, “Sure.”
The two exchanged money on the spot. Jiang Zhen gave Jiang Bi one and said to her, “Take the money and buy two portions of food from that restaurant.”
Holding the money, Jiang Bi asked softly, “What about you, brother?”
“I’ll wait for you here.”
Jiang Bi hesitated for a moment before she obediently went to buy food. The people at the border all understood the language of the Yue State, so Jiang Bi quickly bought the food back.
“Brother, I’ll give you the rice and change.” Jiang Bi obediently handed over the change.
Jiang Zhen took the money and asked Jiang Bi in front of the chauffeur, “Did the boss see the money?”
Jiang Bi nodded. “Yes.”
Jiang Zhen glanced at the driver and said, “Pleasant cooperation.” After confirming that the driver wasn’t giving him fake coins, Jiang Zhen pulled Jiang Bi away.
The driver stared at Jiang Zhen’s back and narrowed his eyes. He thought to himself, ‘This little guy isn’t old, but he’s quite cautious.’
Jiang Zhen and Jiang Bi squatted beside a broken road to eat. They had not eaten for a day and were famished.
The driver looked at the siblings from afar. He seemed to have thought of something as he walked towards them with a bottle of water.
Jiang Zhen saw the driver walking towards them and subconsciously moved in front of his sister, hiding her behind him. “What are you doing?” Jiang Zhen’s black eyes were like those of a wolf cub, fierce and ruthless.
The driver looked down at Jiang Zhen and suddenly said, “Kid, did you commit a crime in the State of Yue?”
Jiang Zhen’s eyes flickered, but he did not say anything.
Jiang Zhen was only ten years old. Although he was smart, he wasn’t too shrewd. He didn’t know how to conceal his strength and bide his time, nor did he know how to disguise himself.
“I’ve been a driver for more than ten years, and I’ve driven many people. I’ve seen clearly who secretly came to work and who escaped.”
Jiang Zhen looked at him silently and pursed his lips tightly.
After a while, he asked in a hoarse voice, “Are you going to arrest me and hand me over to the police?”
“Heh…” Duan Wuyang shook her head.” Why would I capture you? Brat, you brought a burden with you. What do you plan to do in the future? You’re still a brat yourself. ”
Jiang Zhen was at a loss for words.
He did not know what to do in the future. He only knew that if he did not take his sister away, her life would be over.
“Do you know that there are usually only two outcomes for a child your age here?” Duan Wuyang squatted down in front of Jiang Zhen. He stared at Jiang Zhen’s fearless black eyes and said, “You either die or get sold.”
Jiang Zhen knew that what Duan Wuyang said was true.
He and his sister had been sold to foster fathers. As for dying…
He also knew that it was true.
They might starve to death or be beaten to death.
Jiang Zhen tightened his grip on the disposable food bag in his hand and said in a hoarse voice, “I beg you, give me a way out.” This person had suddenly found him, and it was probably not just to scare him.
Duan Wuyang saw that Jiang Zhen quickly guessed his motive and couldn’t help but laugh. “You’re really a smart child.”
Jiang Zhen remained silent.
Duan Wuyang said, “I know a martial arts school. You can follow me to practice boxing. Although it’ll be very painful, at least you’ll have something to eat.”
Jiang Zhen noticed that Duan Wuyang was referring to him. He frowned subconsciously and asked, “What about my sister?”
Duan Wuyang glanced at the girl behind Jiang Zhen. The little girl was quite pretty and looked like she had convenient limbs and intelligence. “If you’re willing, I can send her to the orphanage. Although the food at the orphanage is poor, there’s still food.”
Jiang Zhen subconsciously refused, “I won’t leave her behind.”
“I’ll do whatever you want.” Duan Wuyang stood up and was about to leave. Before she left, she added, “If you regret it one day, you can look for me at Nightless City in Nanxing City.”
Jiang Zhen stared at Duan Wuyang’s back view as he left and gritted his teeth. He turned back and frowned as he looked at Jiang Bi, who was trembling in fear of being left behind.
The little girl raised the unfinished food with trembling hands. She said with tears streaming down her face, “I’ll eat less for every meal in the future. Brother, don’t leave me behind.”
Jiang Zhen finally couldn’t bear it anymore and hugged Jiang Bi. “What nonsense are you spouting? I won’t leave you behind.” Even if he had to kneel and beg, he wouldn’t leave Jiang Bi behind.
Jiang Zhen knew that Nanxing City was prosperous, so he brought Jiang Bi to Nanxing City.
Nanxing City was the most prosperous city in the southwest. The people here were dressed in bright clothes. The streets were not filled with bicycles, but electric scooters and small cars.
Jiang Zhen and Jiang Bi stood on the crowded street, wearing dirty old clothes and writing the words ‘outsider’ on their bodies.
They only had five notes left.
Jiang Zhen didn’t know what to do. He was too young and couldn’t even work to earn money. He started begging, but he might not even be able to earn twenty dollars a day.
The siblings spent a month in a daze. Not only did they spend all their money, but they also lost weight.
Jiang Zhen used the last dollar to buy two steamed buns. At that time, the smaller buns only cost fifty cents each.
Returning to the temporary bridge hole, Jiang Zhen handed the small steamed bun to Jiang Bi. Jiang Bi took the bun, took a bite, and swallowed it. Feeling a little cold, Jiang Bi leaned closer to her brother.
It was raining outside, and the cardboard box used to cushion the floor inside the bridge was wet. The siblings squatted on the wet cardboard, and Jiang pulled Jiang Bi into his arms. He asked Jiang Bi, “Is it cold?”
On a night of 16.7 degrees, Jiang Bi was still wearing a short-sleeved T-shirt. Hearing this, she shook her head. “It’s not cold.”
Jiang Zhen touched the goosebumps on his sister’s arms and silently hugged her tighter.
“Lass.” Jiang Zhen put away half a bun and stuffed it into his pocket. He stroked Jiang Bi’s withered hair and suddenly said, “Lass, when I have money in the future, I’ll take you to live in a big house, buy you white dresses, and buy you that fragrant shampoo that smells nice after washing your hair…”
When Jiang Bi thought of that scene, she couldn’t help but want to cry. “Brother, will you protect me forever?”
“Of course. I’m your brother.”
As the siblings spoke, they gradually fell asleep. The next morning, the siblings took their bowls and prepared to go out and beg. When they set off, Jiang Zhen gave half a hard bun to Jiang Bi.
Jiang Bi took the steamed bun and realized that it was left behind by her brother last night. She didn’t say anything and only lowered her head to bite the steamed bun.
When the two of them were begging, they would part ways and usually meet at the agreed place at noon.
Jiang Zhen went to the entrance of the mall while Jiang Bi went to a small plaza. She stared at the clubhouse in front of the plaza called Blue Sea and Blue Sky. She took out the steamed bun that had been bitten a few times from her pocket and hesitated for a long time before walking towards the clubhouse.
Seeing that Jiang Bi had been standing at the entrance of the clubhouse, the clubhouse’s security noticed her and walked towards her. “Little girl, go away, go away. You can’t come to such a place.”
Jiang Bi hid the begging bowl behind her. She said to the security guard, “I heard that you are hiring people here.”
The security guard was stunned.
He sized up Jiang Bi with a strange look in his eyes. “Do you know where we are?” Blue sea and blue sky. That was the famous chaotic place in South Star City. It was indeed recruiting people, but they were all young and beautiful ladies.
Jiang Bi often saw pretty girls in short skirts and high heels walk into this clubhouse after dark. She, who was already ten years old, could vaguely guess some things.
Jiang Bi threw down her bowl and pulled her hair out, revealing a somewhat rough face. But the security guard had to admit that this was a very pretty face. When she grew up, she would definitely be a great beauty.
The security officer frowned. “Go back. Don’t come here. This is not a good place.”
Jiang Bi grabbed the security officer’s hand. “Uncle, I’m starving.” She and her brother had been eating buns for three consecutive days. She couldn’t let her brother starve to death.
The security guard looked at her deeply and stared at her frail and malnourished body. He sighed and said, “Follow me.”
At noon, Jiang Zhen arrived at the appointed place. He did not see Jiang Bi. He felt slightly uneasy and went to the small square where Jiang Bi was begging.
There was a wandering artist in the small square. That artist drew nearby every day. Jiang Zhen and Jiang Bi took turns to come to the small square to beg. He was considered familiar with the painter.
Jiang Zhen walked over to the painter and asked, “Brother, have you seen my sister?”
The painter put down the pen in his hand. After staying here for a month, he had seen the fickleness of human nature. The painter noticed that the amount of money the siblings could beg for was decreasing. He looked at Jiang Zhen and suddenly said, “Little friend, you can’t protect her. If this continues, you will starve to death.”
Jiang Zhen realized something and his tone became anxious. “Brother, did you see my sister!” Jiang Zhen stubbornly wanted an answer.
The painter pointed at the blue sea and blue sky and said, “She went there.”
Jiang Zhen’s expression suddenly changed.
When Jiang Zhen rushed into the blue sky, he was stopped by security. “I’m looking for my sister! My sister just went in!”
The security guard recognized Jiang Zhen and told him, “Your sister came willingly.”
“Bullsh*t!” Jiang Zhen knew that the security guards would not let him in, so he shouted loudly at the door, attracting the attention of many people.
The security guards chased him away and he ran back to create a scene.
In the end, the manager had no choice but to bring Jiang Bi out. At that time, Jiang Bi had already showered and changed into a white princess dress. Her straw-like dry hair had been washed clean. Jiang Bi, who was wearing a white dress, looked like a little angel.
Jiang Bi was led out of the clubhouse by the manager. She looked at the dirty boy outside the clubhouse and her eyes turned red.
Jiang Bi said to the manager, “Manager, I have something to say to him.”
The manager nodded and let her go. However, he reminded her impatiently, “Send him away as soon as possible. It’s not good to cause a scene at the entrance. If he doesn’t leave, I’ll have to get someone to chase him away!”
Jiang Bi nodded and walked over to Jiang Zhen in a pair of princess shoes.
Jiang Zhen looked at his sister, who was so beautiful that she was a little unfamiliar. This was the first time he realized that his sister was actually so beautiful. If my sister lived in a wealthy family, she would definitely be a little princess.
Jiang Zhen shouted hoarsely, “Little girl, come with me.”
Jiang Bi shook her head.
She finally took out her hand that had been behind her back, holding two thousand yuan in it. Jiang Zhen’s pupils constricted when he saw the money.
Jiang Zhen glared at her angrily. “You’re going to anger me to death!”
Jiang Bi stuffed the money into Jiang Zhen’s arms and said, “Brother, this time, I don’t want you anymore.” Just like he had promised, Jiang Zhen didn’t abandon Jiang Bi even if he had to starve to death.
But Jiang Bi could not see her brother starve to death.
Jiang Bi gave Jiang Zhen a deep look and said, “Brother, take the money and go earn more money. When you’ve earned enough money, come and fetch me back. Take me to live in a big house, buy me lots and lots of beautiful white dresses, and also get rose-scented shampoo…”
“Shut up!” Jiang Zhen directly threw money at Jiang Bi’s face.
Jiang Bi immediately fell silent.
“Come with me!” Jiang Zhen pulled Jiang Bi away.
Jiang Bi shook her head. “I’m not leaving! I’m not leaving! Brother, I’m simply dragging you down by being with you! I don’t want you anymore. I don’t want you anymore!”
Jiang Bi turned around and ran away.
Jiang Zhen was rooted to the ground as he stared blankly at his sister’s back, feeling as if a knife was being twisted in his heart.
In that instant, he hated this world immensely.
Why was it that while others were living so happily, we siblings had to live so bitterly!
With tears in his eyes, Jiang Zhen picked up the money on the floor and folded them one by one. He took off the fat jacket he had picked up and wrapped the money in it. Jiang Zhen carried the money and ran away.
He ran for more than half an hour before stopping. Jiang Zhen stopped at the entrance of a stylish nightclub and walked straight to the entrance. He said to the security guard, “Hello, I’m looking for Duan Wuyang.”
The security guard looked at him a few more times before saying, “Wait.”
Jiang Zhen waited until eight in the evening.
Duan Wuyang was very busy at night and had been catching up on sleep during the day. When he woke up, he heard that a little kid was looking for him outside and was a little surprised. He knew that not many people came here to look for him, and even fewer children.
Duan Wuyang had already guessed the child’s identity.
When he walked out of the clubhouse, he saw the little boy squatting at the entrance of the clubhouse with a bag of things in his arms. It had only been a month since he last saw the little boy, and the little boy was already starving. However, his pair of eyes were still fierce, releasing an ominous glint like a wolf.
Duan Wuyang walked over and squatted silently beside the little boy. “You still came.”
When he heard the voice, the slightly numb Jiang Zhen immediately looked up and grabbed his arm. He said to him, “What’s your relationship with this club? Can you help me rescue my sister? I promise you, I’ll fight with you in the future. I promise you that I’ll send my sister to the orphanage! I beg you, save her!”
The little boy’s grip on her arm was too domineering. Even Duan Wuyang felt the pain. Duan Wuyang looked at him silently and suddenly said, “You have to sign a life and death agreement to fight me. Do you still want to fight?”
Jiang Zhen’s face paled a little, but as the image of Jiang Bi flashed through her mind, she hardened her heart.
“Sure. Where’s your sister? I’ll get her out.”
“Blue sea and blue sky.”
Duan Wuyang seemed to have a good relationship with the manager of the Blue Sea and Blue Sky. After some coercion and bribery, he successfully took Jiang Bi away from the manager.
Jiang Bi silently followed Jiang Zhen out of the clubhouse. Once out of the clubhouse, she grabbed Jiang Zhen’s shirt. “… brother.”
Jiang Zhen didn’t turn around and said coldly, “Uncle Duan will send you to the orphanage tomorrow morning.”
Jiang Bi was stunned for a moment before clenching her teeth.
At this moment, she also realized that separating from her brother was a release for both of them. Jiang Bi asked worriedly, “What about you, brother?”
Jiang Zhen said, “I will follow Uncle Duan. Uncle Duan will take care of me.” Jiang Zhen looked up at the dark sky. When he thought of that hopeless future, his nose became sour again.
“Lass, when I have money, I’ll pick you up.” After Jiang Zhen said this, he didn’t even turn back to look at Jiang Bi before he left with his hands in his pockets.
