Jiang Bi saw that her brother actually left her without saying a word and didn’t even turn back. She instantly felt wronged and tears flowed down her face.
Duan Wuyang looked at Jiang Zhen and wanted to chase after him. However, when he saw that Jiang Bi was crying, he couldn’t bear to leave the little girl.
“Um…” Duan Wuyang patted Jiang Bi’s head stiffly and said, “He doesn’t want you to see him cry.” Duan Wuyang, who rarely comforted people, seemed a little unnatural.
Jiang Bi looked up at Duan Wuyang’s fierce-looking face. She didn’t know if this person was considered a good person, but he wasn’t a bad person from head to toe.
Jiang Bi suddenly grabbed Duan Wuyang’s arm.
Duan Wuyang’s scalp went numb. “What are you doing?”
Jiang Bi looked at Uncle Duan with teary eyes. She said, “Uncle Duan, I’ll hand my brother over to you. Please take good care of him for me in the future. I know boxing is very painful. If he’s injured, please help him apply medicine.”
Duan Wuyang stared at the little girl with mixed feelings. “You girl…” He nodded earnestly. “Don’t worry,” he promised. “I’ll take care of him.”
After receiving Duan Wuyang’s guarantee, Jiang Bi felt a little more at ease.
That night, Duan Wuyang brought Jiang Bi to find someone he knew. He used his connections to send Jiang Bi to an orphanage.
Jiang Bi was pretty and healthy. A child like her would be easily taken away. Duan Wuyang gave some money to the director and told them to find a better family for Jiang Bi.
After settling Jiang Bi’s matters, Duan Wuyang rode a motorcycle to Han Cave to look for Jiang Zhen. He parked the bike in Han Cave and saw that the ground was filled with puddles and he couldn’t get off. He said to Jiang Zhen, “Get in.”
Hearing Duan Wuyang’s voice, Jiang Zhen slowly raised his pale face and asked hoarsely, “Have you sent my sister away?” Jiang Zhen’s legs were soaked in the water and his pants were also wet. After a cold night, his expression was a little stiff and pale.
Duan Wuyang knew that Jiang Zhen wouldn’t believe him so easily. “Get in the car. I’ll take you there to take a look. It’s rare for me to do a good deed and even get suspected by a brat like you!” Jiang Zhen got onto Duan Wuyang’s motorcycle.
Duan Wuyang parked the car at the entrance of the orphanage and pointed at the gate, saying, “Your sister is inside. You can take a peek so you can rest assured.” Otherwise, this little bastard would suspect that I had sold his sister.
Jiang Zhen peeked from outside the door and soon saw Jiang Bi. She had changed into a set of orphanage clothes and was sitting on the table tennis table in the courtyard, silently watching the children who were more or less disabled.
Seeing that Jiang Bi was really sent to the orphanage, Jiang Zhen felt relieved.
On the way back, Duan Wuyang told Jiang Zhen, “Don’t worry. A good child like your sister is the easiest to adopt. Once she’s adopted, her days are usually better.”
Jiang Zhen listened without saying a word.
Duan Wuyang lived in a two-bedroom suite. It was a staircase house, close to the market. He brought Jiang home and pointed to the small room. “That’s where you live. When you earn some money from boxing, we’ll change to a bigger house.”
Jiang Zhen, who had lived in all the bridges and caves, was not picky about the living environment. It was already very good to be sheltered from the wind and rain here.
As such, Jiang Zhen finally had a place to stay.
Duan Wuyang turned on the gas heater and told Jiang Zhen, “This is a gas valve. You must turn it off when you don’t use it. Otherwise, you’ll be poisoned to death by carbon monoxide if it’s leaked.”
After Duan Wuyang finished speaking, he turned around and saw Jiang Zhen staring at the gas tank with a pensive expression. Duan Wuyang could guess what he was thinking. He snorted coldly and warned him, “Don’t count on this method to kill me. I, Duan Wuyang, am not that easy to kill.”
Jiang Zhen wasn’t embarrassed that his thoughts had been exposed.
He walked to Duan Wuyang’s side and suddenly said, “I read about it in a magazine before. It said that if someone who ate the spores drank alcohol, there’s a high chance that they would have a drug reaction and die.”
Duan Wuyang replied, “Yes, but who knows if it’s true?”
“It’s true.” Jiang Zhen looked up at Duan Wuyang and said calmly, “I’ve verified it.” He had verified it. In other words, he had personally killed someone in this manner.
Duan Wuyang was stunned for a moment before looking at him meaningfully. “Are you threatening me?”
Jiang Zhen sneered. “I can do anything for you, but Duan Wuyang, don’t even think about my sister.”
Duan Wuyang laughed.
After a long time, he said, “I used to have an elder sister who became the mistress of a big boss for me. She was pushed down from the top floor and fell to her death in front of me. Her body was split in half and her eyes were wide open.”
After saying that, Duan Wuyang asked Jiang Zhen with a smile that wasn’t quite a smile, “As the older one, do you all like to do selfless contributions?”
His sister was, and so was Jiang Zhen. Who wanted them to sacrifice themselves!
Hearing this, Jiang Zhen turned around and left without saying anything.
After Duan Wuyang boiled the hot water and turned off the gas, he ordered Jiang Zhen to take a shower. Jiang Zhen kicked the water and went to the toilet to take a shower. After showering, he didn’t change his clothes and walked out naked.
Duan Wuyang shook his head and found a set of clothes for Jiang Zhen to wear.
Jiang Zhen put on Duan Wuyang’s clothes like a clown performing a comedy.
“Look at you, you’re short and thin, your body can’t take a beating.” In reality, Jiang Zhen wasn’t considered short, but he was indeed thin. When this weak and fragile appearance entered the arena, he could only be beaten up.
“Rest for the next two weeks. Rest well and study your boxing techniques. On the first of next month, you will be playing your first arena match.”
Jiang Zhen nodded.
“I have a job every day. I can’t be there for you. I have rice at home. The market is just across the street. You can take care of your meals. There’s a second-hand crappy computer at home that connects to the Internet. You can play with it.”
When Jiang Zhen was in Yue Country, he had secretly visited several internet cafes. However, he wasn’t there to play games. Instead, he was there to search for information on escape routes.
Hearing that there was a computer, Jiang Zhen’s eyes lit up a little.
“Right, what’s your name?” Duan Wuyang still didn’t know Jiang Zhen’s name.
Jiang Zhen had already said goodbye to his past life and would definitely not use the name ‘Ao Han’ again. He thought of the two words he had seen under the bed and found a pen to write ‘Jiang Zhen’ on the calendar on the table.
Duan Wuyang stared at those two words and was silent for a moment before saying, “Wow, this name is quite special. Jiang… Jiang Qin?”
Jiang Zhen knew very little Chinese characters, so when he heard Duan Wuyang say that his name was Jiang Qin, he thought that his name was Jiang Qin. He acknowledged and said, “My name is Jiang Qin.”
“Alright, Jiang Qin, I’m leaving.”
Duan Wuyang went out for two days. When he came back, he was carrying a bag of clothes that he had picked out from the secondhand market for Jiang Zhen to wear. Jiang Zhen changed his clothes and borrowed some money from Duan Wuyang to buy books from the bookstore outside.
He bought the simplest elementary knowledge books.
When Jiang Zhen returned home, he stared at the simplest content in the book and asked Duan Wuyang, who was scratching her feet, “How do you read this? What does it mean?”
Duan Wuyang :”…”
Duan Wuyang looked at Jiang Zhen sinisterly and said, “I brought you here to do boxing. Do you understand boxing? You only need to use your fists to talk. Why are you buying these things?!” He picked up a red brick from the ground and said, “Do you believe I won’t beat you up?!”
Jiang Zhen wasn’t afraid of the brick in Duan Wuyang’s hand. He said, “Uncultured people can only fight, while cultured people can get people to fight.” He stared at Duan Wuyang and narrowed his eyes as he said, “I want to be the person who gets others to fight for me.”
Duan Wuyang was stunned.
This kid was quite eloquent.
Jiang Zhen closed the book and said, “I understand. You’re also illiterate and can’t understand.”
Duan Wuyang refused to admit that she was illiterate. Although he wasn’t well-educated, he had studied for a few years. After being provoked by Jiang Zhen, Duan Wuyang threw the brick aside and snatched the textbook from Jiang Zhen’s hands, saying, “One, this is one. One for 1234!”
Jiang Zhen nodded and silently noted down this number.
During those two weeks, Duan Wuyang worked like a dog at night. He only slept for six to seven hours during the day before waking up to teach Jiang Zhen how to read. It made him want to return Jiang Zhen.
Two weeks passed in the blink of an eye. Jiang Zhen had already learned how to use Chinese to do simple daily interactions. He also knew more than 200 Chinese characters. The speed at which he absorbed knowledge was like a sponge absorbing water. It was especially terrifying.
Duan Wuyang looked at the little boy who was practicing calligraphy and felt a little hesitant. Why don’t I just send this guy to study? Perhaps he can get some results in the future and become an official?
However, the moment this thought sprouted, Duan Wuyang stopped it.
“You’re going to the arena tomorrow.” Duan Wuyang brought up the important matter.
Jiang Zhen had seen some boxing videos in the past few days, but he felt that watching videos was not as good as experiencing them personally, so he did not watch them.
“How many videos did you watch?”
“That little?” Duan Wuyang raised her brows. He said, “If you don’t learn more techniques, you’ll get beaten up on stage.”
Jiang Zhen didn’t stop practicing his calligraphy. As he wrote, he said, “It’s better to take more hits than to watch. Once you gain experience, you’ll know how to dodge.”
Duan Wuyang was convinced by Jiang Zhen again.
This kid was indeed a talent. Every word he said made sense.
Duan Wuyang smiled embarrassedly. “Easy for you to say. You only know pain when you get beaten up. Aren’t you afraid of being beaten to death?”
Jiang Zhen had just finished writing when he turned around and stared at Duan Wuyang. He said very firmly, “I’m afraid, but you won’t let me die.”
Duan Wuyang looked at him in surprise and asked, “Why would you think that? I’m not the one fighting you. Whether you win or lose isn’t up to me.”
“But you’re the one who paid to train me,” Jiang Zhen said, like a wily fox. “I’ve seen your picture. You used to be a boxer too. You weren’t willing to just be a driver. You met me and tried to train me to be a boxing champion.”
“I was brought back by you. In order to keep me, you even willingly sent my sister to the orphanage. You must think very highly of me if you fawn over me like this.”
“That’s why.” Jiang Zhen’s lips curled up slightly. He smiled and said, “I’m your last bargaining chip. I’m your trump card. You can’t bear to see your trump card get smashed.”
After listening to Jiang Zhen’s analysis, Duan Wuyang’s expression changed. After a while, he sighed and said, “Brat, you’re suitable to go to war. You’re too good at reading people’s minds.” It was simply terrifying.
If such a person went astray, he would definitely become a cancer in society.
Duan Wuyang looked at the ‘little malignant tumor’ and felt a little melancholic. “Anyway, fight well. Don’t fall too quickly.”
Jiang Zhen said, “I won’t die in the ring.” I hadn’t earned enough money yet. I hadn’t bought a big house to bring my sister back, so I would definitely survive!
he next day, Jiang Zhen was brought to the underground boxing manor by Duan Wuyang.
On the way, he told Jiang Zhen, “You’re still young. The person fighting against you won’t be much older than you. They’re usually between thirteen to fifteen years old, but no matter how old, you’ll always be at a disadvantage.”
“Every newcomer’s first arena match won’t be easy. Jiang Qin, are you ready to fight?”
Jiang Zhen couldn’t be bothered with Duan Wuyang.
The underground boxing club was like a miniature Roman arena. The ring was placed in the middle of the circle, and it was filled with people.
The little Jiang Zhen changed into his boxing uniform and stood in the waiting area, waiting. He stared at the people on the seats who were shouting with all their might. Under the influence of their emotions, the blood in Jiang Zhen’s body started to flow in reverse.
He suddenly asked Duan Yang, “Can I not show my true face?”
Jiang Zhen said, “When I make a name for myself in the future, it’ll be too pitiful if people find out about my tragic past.”
Duan Wuyang lost his temper at Jiang Zhen’s words.
He said disdainfully, “No mask.”
Jiang Zhen glanced at the stockings on the women’s legs and asked with a frown, “There are always those kinds of stockings, right?”
Duan Wuyang :”…”
Where was my brick?
At night, at 10: 20 PM, the host began to introduce the rookies for tonight. “Next up is the rookie, Mu Feng! He is the youngest child in the history of our boxing ring. He has just turned 10!”
Upon hearing this, the spectators all whistled. When they thought of the scene of a ten-year-old child being beaten up, their blood boiled and their scalps went numb.
“And the person fighting the newcomer is the young man with three months of boxing experience, Cheng Rui!” Everyone knew that Cheng Rui was already fourteen years old.
To let a fourteen-year-old and experienced youth fight a ten-year-old rookie was truly an unfair battle.
But this was what the players pursued!
Everyone started betting.
Ninety-eight percent of the people bet that Cheng Rui would win, but there were also those who didn’t like to bet on Mu Feng.
Mu Feng was invited onto the stage.
When they saw Mu Feng, everyone was stunned for a moment, then burst into laughter. That was because the little boy had a layer of pure black stockings on his face. When the stockings grew longer, they stuck a small ball on his head.
He roughly cut two holes in his eyes, revealing a pair of young but calm and steady eyes.
Cheng Rui frowned at the newbie who was dressed strangely and curled his lips in disdain. “Little brother, are you afraid that you’ll look too ugly when you get beaten up, so you used a stocking to cover your face?”
Jiang Zhen stared at him and said in Chinese, which was not very standard, “Villains die from talking too much.”
Mu Feng nodded at the judge and said, “I’m ready.”
The referee was stunned. He had never seen a boxer as calm and arrogant as Jiang Zhen.
The referee whistled and lowered his hand. Both of them moved at the same time.
As soon as the match began, Cheng Rui punched Jiang Zhen in the face. He seemed to dislike Jiang Zhen’s face and deliberately hit him in the face.
Jiang Zhen deliberately guided Cheng Rui to pay attention to his face. After Cheng Rui punched him three or four times in a row, Jiang Zhen gathered his strength and kicked Cheng Rui’s temple.
Cheng Rui was kicked to the ground by Jiang Zhen’s counterattack. Jiang Zhen rushed up, bent down, and punched Cheng Rui’s heart. His fighting style was brutal.
Cheng Rui came back to his senses and wrapped his legs around Jiang Zhen’s waist. The two of them were locked in battle.
The audience had gone crazy. They started shouting Cheng Rui’s name, hoping that Cheng Rui could quickly rise up and beat Jiang Zhen. The players who had bet on Jiang Zhen began to excitedly call out Jiang Zhen’s name.
Duan Wuyang watched this scene with relief and felt a little smug.
Jiang Zhen was quickly defeated by Cheng Rui. Cheng Rui seized the opportunity and punched Jiang Zhen’s chest hard. Every punch made Jiang Zhen feel like his body was being torn apart.
Jiang Zhen was on the verge of death. Just as the referee was about to shout for him to stop, he suddenly opened his eyes and shouted something. Then, he used all his strength to punch Cheng Rui’s head open.
Cheng Rui’s eyes glowed as he temporarily let go of Jiang Zhen.
Jiang Zhen took the offensive and began his merciless revenge.
Everyone watched as the skinny kid beat Cheng Rui up like a wolf cub. Cheng Rui was bleeding from the corner of his mouth and couldn’t move his body anymore, so he begged for mercy.
Jiang Zhen only stopped after the referee shouted for him to stop. He held onto the fence by the ring and struggled to stand up. Staring at Cheng Rui, who was groaning in pain on the ground, Jiang Zhen did not reach out to pull him back.
“Do you know what I’m most afraid of?” Jiang Zhen asked.
Cheng Rui held his head with both hands and narrowed his eyes at Jiang Zhen, saying nothing.
“I’m afraid of death,” Jiang Zhen said. “Whoever wants me to die, I’ll risk my life to kill him first.” He was a coward. He was afraid of death. He wanted to live even if it meant risking his life.
In order to survive, he had even lost his sister. There was no reason for him not to win this arena.
Jiang Zhen pressed his chest and bent his back as he walked off the stage.
Duan Wuyang quickly ran over to support him. Jiang Zhen glanced at him before falling into his arms. Before he fainted, he said, “Don’t give up on me. I can still earn money for you. You have to treat me!”
With that said, Jiang Zhen fainted.
Duan Wuyang looked at the little boy in her arms with a complicated expression. It was as if he was looking at the boy who had been beaten up so badly many years ago but refused to admit defeat.
Duan Wuyang carried Jiang Zhen back home and gave him the best medicinal wine. When Jiang Zhen woke up, every bone in his body was about to fall apart. However, he was still alive and this made him satisfied.
Jiang Zhen picked up the milk on the bedside table and drank it. He squinted for a while before getting up.
Today, he had to recognize another five words, learn five idioms, and do a fifth-grade reading comprehension. Jiang Zhen struggled to sit up, hugged the Xinhua dictionary, and began to read.
Duan Wuyang heard the commotion and opened the door to take a look. When he saw that he didn’t forget to study despite being injured, he instantly felt that this person would definitely be impressive when he grew up.
A self-disciplined, persistent, and unwilling to resign himself to fate was the most terrifying person.
Jiang Zhen had to fight two rounds every month, one at the beginning of the month and the other at the middle of the month. He had just recovered from his injuries and had to go for a second round. Gradually, Jiang Zhen began to treat pain as a nutrient. Every time he felt pain, his boxing skills would improve.
Soon, everyone knew that a boy named Mu Feng had come to the underground arena. He was thin and weak like a chick, but his fists were as hard as Transformers.
In half a year, Jiang Zhen had gone from a boxing rookie to a young bird. He had made some money for Duan Wuyang and the boxing ring, and his days had become better.
Jiang Zhen was able to understand many words, so he felt that simple literacy was no longer enough to satisfy his thirst for knowledge. When Jiang Zhen discovered that the lousy computer contained the entire world, he instantly became interested in the computer.
Jiang Zhen went to buy a computer-related book and realized that there was a lot of English in it. He realized that if he wanted to study computer science, he had to learn English first. Hence, in the spring of the second year, Duan Wuyang discovered that the little boy at home started reading ABCs and learned How-old-are-you.
Duan Wuyang really admired Jiang Zhen.
If such a smart child did not get lost, how proud would his family be of him?
A few days later, Duan Wuyang received a piece of news. He told Jiang Zhen, “There’s news from the orphanage today that someone went to pick your sister.”
When he heard this news, Jiang Zhen learned a phrase called ‘love cannot bear to be forgiven’. He stared at the note on Chengyu’s back and explained. After a long silence, he asked, “What kind of family is it?”
“The other party is a pair of teachers. The man is a university professor, and the woman is a high school English teacher. They don’t come from wealthy families, but their conditions are not bad.”
Upon hearing that the other party was a pair of teachers, Jiang Zhen felt relieved. “Do they have children?”
“It’s precisely because she can’t conceive that she wants to adopt a child.”
But my younger sister is no longer an ignorant little baby girl. Why would the other party be willing to adopt her?” Usually, families would choose children who were healthy and young and could not remember things. For a child like Jiang Bi who had already remembered her past, ordinary families would not adopt her.
“I heard from the director that when the couple went over, the girl was drawing. It’s said that she drew pretty well. The other party might have taken a fancy to your sister’s talent in drawing.”
Jiang Zhen was speechless.
During the month Jiang Bi was begging, whenever she was free, she would stand beside that wandering artist and watch him paint. It turned out that she actually liked painting.
“It’s quite good. Being adopted by that kind of family is quite good.” Jiang Zhen repeatedly said that it was quite good before he closed the dictionary and got up to go to the toilet.
When Duan Wuyang heard the sound of water coming from the toilet, he understood that this brat had gone to hide and cry. He was considerate enough not to expose the youngster’s stubbornness.
Jiang Bi was quickly adopted. The couple who adopted her did not live in Nanxing City, but in a county under the jurisdiction of Nanxing City.
On the day she was taken away, Jiang Zhen looked at her from afar. Before the little girl got into the car, she turned around and looked behind her. She didn’t see the person she wanted to see, so she got into the car.
After his sister left, it took Jiang Zhen two days to regain his composure.
On this day, Jiang Zhen had nothing to do. He munched on some corn while swimming around in the world of computers. After wandering around aimlessly for a few times, he suddenly barged into an unknown online area. The website was encrypted and Jiang Zhen failed to enter.
He knew that his skills were not up to par, so he decided to back out.
Jiang Zhen was about to close the webpage when a red fire fox suddenly jumped out. When the little fox jumped out, Jiang Zhen’s computer screen suddenly turned black. There was only a reckless little fox on the screen.
Jiang Zhen realized belatedly that his computer had been infected with a virus and was somewhat messed up. He tried to remove the virus, but he failed several times.
At this moment, Jiang Zhen didn’t know that he had met the legendary genius hacker, God F, who was also Song Fei. He had accidentally barged into Song Fei’s camp and was automatically chased to the IP address by the firewall program set up by Song Fei. He had been hacked.
Because of Song Fei’s mess, that computer was immediately scrapped.
Jiang Zhen carried the broken computer and went outside to look for someone to fix it. In the end, the other party couldn’t fix it. Jiang Zhen’s fighting spirit instantly rose. Where did this slutty fox come from? She actually destroyed my computer!
From that day onwards, Jiang Zhen started to save money. Once he saved enough money, he went to buy a second-hand computer. Once Jiang Zhen was free, he would learn electrical technology and start to fight endlessly with the fire fox.
In the past year, Jiang Zhen had been fighting with the fire fox. Gradually, the two of them became friends.
One day, Fire Fox suddenly added Jiang Zhen’s QQ number. She asked Jiang Zhen, “How old are you?”
The more he studied computer technology, the more Jiang Zhen realized how amazing Fire Fox was. He also knew that this person was the legendary number one hacker in China, God F. Jiang Zhen respected God F and answered honestly: [I’m already eleven years old. I’ll be twelve soon.]
fire Fox said, [And a little kid.]
Jiang Zhen was also curious about God F’s age, so he asked: [Senior, how old are you?]
The senior said: [12 years old.]
Jiang Zhen: “?”
God F was only a year older than me!
Indeed, there was always someone better.
Fire Fox suddenly sent him a message and said, [You have computer talent, but you lack professional guidance. Do you want to take me as your master? I can teach you.]
Jiang Zhen’s computer skills had long reached a bottleneck, and he needed the guidance of an expert. Thus, when he saw this message, Jiang Zhen didn’t hesitate and immediately acknowledged him as his master.
Under Song Fei’s guidance, Jiang Zhen’s computer skills grew day by day. In the end, he actually became one of the top fifty experts in the world. When Jiang Zhen saw that ranking, he once again deeply realized how amazing his master was.
He asked Song Fei secretly, [Master, if your computer skills are so good, what about your cultural results? Are they very good too?]
Song Fei: [It’s alright. Anyway, I get 100 marks every time I take the exam. The content in junior high school is too simple. I’m researching viruses with my teacher now. That’s a little difficult…]
Jiang Zhen only wanted to kneel down and call for his father.
She was only twelve years old, but my master had already started researching viruses with the big shots!
[Master, you’re amazing.] Jiang Zhen idolized his master.
Song Fei was praised by his little disciple and felt that he should give his little disciple some benefits so that he could maintain his little disciple’s admiration for him. Song Fei casually threw a few fancy software to Jiang Zhen and said, [I don’t need these softwares. Keep them and see if you sell them or use them yourself.]
Just like that, as Jiang Zhen grew up, he followed F theology. Originally, everything was going well, but when he was 13 years old, Master F suddenly disappeared from the Internet world.
Her QQ account had never been logged in again.
God F’s withdrawal made the entire hacker circle feel regretful. Some guessed that God F was dead, some guessed that her heart had been disheartened by something and she left the computer, and some suspected that God F had done something bad and was caught.
However, Jiang Zhen did not believe those rumors. He felt that his master would definitely come back. If she really wanted to say goodbye to the Internet, she would definitely say goodbye to her beloved little disciple.
