Mu Rulan walked to her desk and sat down, pulling out a drawer. She brought out a small pendant. The icy blue jade of the crane shape sparkled and looked lifelike, as though it was about to take flight.
This was a parting gift given by Zhou Yaya’s grandmother, who lived in the countryside. Such a blessed child, this girl was deeply loved by her family. The reason she came so early to school was probably because she had been trying to find this item? Too bad that this pendant had already fallen into Mu Rulan’s hands since the day before.
Mu Rulan turned on her computer and logged into a chatroom. Because she was sponsored by the country, they provided her thorough protection, which meant… Nobody could ever track her IP address.
A window popped up with a few words that seemed to emanate anxiety: “Mission completed, hurry and send the money!”
Mu Rulan was smiling her usual smile, but her eyes were cold. She typed a few words: “You guys overdid it.” She just wanted them to scare Zhou Yaya, she didn’t expect them to be so aggressive.
“Damn, who asked that b*tch to look like a slut! Stop talking nonsense, we almost got caught by Mu Rulan today! Give us our money!” Originally, they hadn’t considered laying their hands on Zhou Yaya, but who told her to act so superior in front of them, wasn’t that just asking for it?
Mu Rulan… huh, the person sitting in front of her computer talking with you, wasn’t she the Mu Rulan they were speaking of?
“The money is in the rubbish bin at Sanxiang North Road, but since you guys went too far I deducted one-third of it.”
“Damn!” Translated by The Novelst
“I’ll look for you again. Until then.”
Her mouth stretched into a clean smile as she closed the window and cleared the history. The moment she switched off her computer, a ray of sunlight filtered in from the window, a golden light that warmed the office, just like her smile.
A good way to train a dog was to give it a sweet and a whip.
And to train a naughty wolf that hadn’t yet become a dog, she needed to let it feel pain, then offer a cure.
… Ah, this was originally taught to her by Bai Suqing.
In the past, Bai Suqing had used this kind of method to keep the extremely valuable dog Zhou Yaya by her side. However, Bai Suqing was much crueler than Mu Rulan. First she found someone to kidnap Zhou Yaya and rape her, then gave her drugs to become addicted to them. Lastly, she appeared like a goddess sent from above in front of her, to rescue her from the suffering and help her through her addiction. This made Zhou Yaya worship Bai Suqing like a god and even helped Bai Suqing to handle her, Mu Rulan.
Human beings were born with a b*tch nature.
The reason she didn’t do the same as Bai Suqing was because Mu Rulan was too principled. Although she had reincarnated and became abnormal, many things were still carved inside her soul and couldn’t be changed easily.
So even though her memories reminded her of the past where the Mu Family and Bai Suqing treated her cruelly, she wouldn’t lay a hand on them until they hurt her.
To be honest, it was quite upsetting. If god really wanted to give her another chance at life, why not just let her live after she got hit by that car? If so, she didn’t have to feel burdened when she planned her revenge. Why did got let her rebirth, didn’t that mean she needed to give them another chance?
Should she feel unhappy about it, or should she feel lucky? Lucky that her family was still here, lucky that she had a chance to save herself from her stupidity, lucky that her name hadn’t become infamous? But it was still annoying to her. Since everything had reset, she had to look at her enemies walking around in front of her. Only she knew that her heart was being torn to pieces, her feelings didn’t simply disappear simply because she was reincarnated.
Ah, maybe this was why she became a psychopath.
Mu Rulan thought herself kind.
Such a kind psychopath, would there ever be another in the world? That was why… Everyone, don’t waste her remaining kindness, alright…
Mu Rulin rushed over to the president’s office immediately after he heard what happened. He ran the whole way as soon as he left the car, carrying his coat in his arms, his shirt already wrinkled.
“Sister…” he took a large step while still panting.
Mu Rulan turned her head, stunned by his anxious expression. She stood up, “Rulin, what happened-”
Before she could finish her sentence, she was interrupted.
Mu Rulin tightly hugged Mu Rulan. That 15-year-old was already taller than his sister. Facing such a dominating person, she couldn’t resist him.
Mu Rulan didn’t move, feeling Mu Rulin’s body trembling as though he was scared. She hesitated, then lifted her hand to slowly pat his back: “It’s alright, it’s fine now, Rulin.”
Mu Rulin was sincerely frightened. He usually woke up earlier than Mu Rusen, and when he was making his way down, he overheard the butler picking up a call from Liu Silan. Hearing of the incident that happened so early in the morning, he was shocked and couldn’t think of anything else but to rush over to the school.
In these times, it was always Mu Rulan who protected them. The kidnapping that occurred five years ago, the kidnappers were going to kidnap the twins but coincidentally they were seen by Mu Rulan. Mu Rulan was only one year older than them, but she ignored the knife the kidnappers were wielding and disregarded her own safety to rush over and save them from the kidnappers. In the end, Mu Rulin and Mu Rusen had managed to escape, but Mu Rulan was kidnapped in their stead.
That memory was a nightmare to him, witnessing their big sister being knocked out and carried into a van, to disappear from their sight. They couldn’t do anything except cry aloud, especially when they heard that the kidnappers had killed someone. They had been so afraid. Fortunately, Mu Rulan made it back in the end.
It had already been five years since that incident. He thought he had forgotten about it, but who knew that this morning’s incident would remind him of it. The memory was painted starkly in his mind, even that terrifying feeling was back.
“……Why did you do that……Why did you do that……” The young man’s pale lips trembled, hugging the girl tightly as if he was afraid to lose his most precious person again.
Mu Rulan’s movements paused, her tone becoming even gentler in trying to comfort the young man: “I’m fine now, nothing will happen. This place is Liu Silan after all…”
Her words seemed to trigger Mu Rulin. His expression became worse, pushing Mu Rulan away and shouting: “How do you know it’s fine? The kidnapping also happened at Liu Silan! You came to school early in the morning, what if those people were vicious gangsters? Didn’t you bring your phone? Why didn’t you call for help first?! Why did you want to meddle in someone else’s business?!”
That was right, meddle in someone else’s business, she was a busybody! Translated by The Novelst
Mu Rulin didn’t give a thought to what would have happened to Zhou Yaya if Mu Rulan hadn’t gone in, he was only concerned with Mu Rulan’s safety! Not even talking about having good qualities or helping one another, all these could be thrown away in front of Mu Rulan! In Mu Rulin’s eyes, only a goddess or an idiot would do that – a goddess would be kind enough to sacrifice herself, and an idiot wouldn’t think of their own future. No one would like to see their family member sacrifice herself to rescue a stranger!
