Warmth

“Are you sure this will work?” Bian Shengjian couldn’t help asking.

“Hmm.” Lu Shen stared intently at the scene in the camera, recorded the whole process of Huang Xiaomei singing beside the hospital bed, and then paused.

“This video…” Bian Shengjian leaned over to take a look, “Can you keep it all the time?”

“No,” Lu Shen shook his head, “everything related to this place will disappear when we return back to reality.”

“Then since a mobile phone can be brought in, can a knife also be allowed?” Bian Shengjian frowned.

“Theoretically it is possible…but what’s the use of carrying a knife?” Lu Shen glanced at him. “The only thing you can touch is the target of the mission. If you kill it, you will never be able to get out again.”

“Cough.” Bian Shengjian twitched the corners of his mouth expressionlessly, “I was just asking.”

“That….” Huang Xiaomei bit her lip and looked at them. “I’ve finished singing. “

“Good.” Lu Shen put away his phone, “Xiao Mei, do you know where there is an Internet cafe nearby?”

“I know.” Huang Xiaomei nodded, “I’ve seen the boys in our class secretly go there. It’s in the alley next to the hospital.”

“Time is running out, take us there now.” Lu Shen said, “I’ll teach you how to post it in a moment.”

“Post?” Bian Shengjian was stunned, “You want to…..”

“En.” Lu Shen lowered his head and flipped through the video just now. “People in this era are relatively simple, so now we can only take advantage of the popularity of public opinion.”

Huang Xiaomei mentioned that the Internet cafe was in the alley. In fact, one doesn’t have to see it to know that it must be an Internet cafe for elementary school students to surf the Internet. 

As soon as one entered the door, one could immediately see a row of elementary school students sitting side by side playing games, screaming their hearts out. If you stayed a little longer, maybe you could even witness parents rushing in aggressively to arrest people, and using slippers as weapons and would chase down the unsatisfactory rotten boys all over the field. That scene would be quite lively for a while.

“One person?” The Internet cafe owner glanced at Huang Xiaomei from top to bottom amidst the smog.

Huang Xiaomei glanced at the two people standing next to her from the corner of her eye, and tried her best to straighten her chest. “En.”

The boss took the two tattered green bills and pointed to the inner row of empty seats.

“One hour!”

“Go.” Lu Shen lightly patted her on the back.

“After a while, you will do as I say, but let’s go to this website first.” Lu Shen said and pointed to the data cable next to the computer. “Help me plug this in.”

“Hey, are you sure it will work?” Bian Shengjian couldn’t help touching him and asked in a low voice. “Even if you want to use public opinion to get others to pay attention to her, how could it be possible in just a few days?”

“Don’t use the thinking of your era unto this era.” Lu Shen glanced at him, “It won’t take long, three days at most.”

Bian Shengjian didn’t speak any more, and only watched Huang Xiaomei click on the legendary Tianya website under the guidance of Lu Shen, but it was a bit difficult to enter the words, after all, such a small child can’t type with a keyboard, Lu Shen could only grab her fingers and type them word by word, and it took almost ten minutes to make a short text.

“Come and take a look, what do you think?”

 After finally finishing everything, Lu Shen breathed a sigh of relief.

“Hmmm… a nine-year-old girl insists on singing for her mother in a coma every day?” Bian Shengjian struggled to identify the words the size of mung bean on the old page, “Can this fucking work?”

“Yes.” Lu Shen lightly held Huang Xiaomei’s little index finger and hit enter.

“Can this really save my mother?” 

Although Huang Xiaomei didn’t understand the use of doing all this, her attitude had become very cooperative since the rooftop chat, and she was no longer so afraid of the two of them. Bian Shengjiane was still a little puzzled about this.

After all, let alone a nine-year-old child, even if such a supernatural thing happened to an adult like him, it was still impossible to believe two guys who were neither human nor ghost.

Maybe because she’s still a kid, so it was natural to be silly. Bian Shengjian sighed.

“Damn it! It’s the ugly girl!” 

Just as Lu Shen helped Huang Xiaomei from the chair, he suddenly heard a shout from behind, his back stiffened and he subconsciously stood in front of her.

“What is it?” Bian Shengjian frowned, looking at the little brats who came out of nowhere, and was proudly pointing at Huang Xiaomei with a grin.

“You actually came to the Internet cafe secretly to surf the Internet! I will definitely tell your parents!”

“What parents, isn’t she an orphan?” Another boy with a snotty nose hurriedly added.

“Scram!” Bian Shengjian pointed at them and yelled, “What did you say!”

Lu Shen didn’t speak, but kept observing the expression on Huang Xiaomei’s face. She was standing on the spot with a calm expression, but the hand on her side was tightly clenched.

“I’m not an orphan.”

“Still saying no!” another boy in the group shouted, “It’s been widely spread in our class for a long time! Your father was killed by someone, and your mother is lying in the hospital, about to die!”

“No!” Huang Xiaomei suddenly screamed, took out something from her pocket, and rushed towards the childish little bastards.

“I won’t allow you to say that about my mother!”

Bian Shengjian was also very angry at first, but when he saw what she was holding in her hand, his pupils instantly shrunk, and he quickly grabbed her arm.

“Xiao Mei, what are you doing!”

“I’m going to kill them!” Huang Xiaomei desperately tried to keep the tears from falling down. “I’m going to tear their mouths!”

“Damn it.” Lu Shen couldn’t help but exclaimed when he saw the knife in Huang Xiaomei’s hand, “Why are you carrying this with you!”

As soon as the boys saw the knife, they turned around and ran away in fright, while still screaming that this ugly girl was crazy. Hearing this, Shengjian’s heart burst into flames.

“Fuck, what a bunch of snotty little brats.”

“Let’s go out first.” Lu Shen’s heart clenched. If he hadn’t held down Huang Xiaomei just now, even hurting one of those little bastards would have very serious consequences.

“Why do you carry a knife with you?” Bian Shengjian forcibly snatched the knife out of her hand, and was somewhat surprised to realize that he could grab something.

“We can also touch the items belonging to the party concerned.” Lu Shen added in a timely manner.

“I want to protect myself.” Huang Xiaomei lowered her head, her voice low.

Bian Shengjian was silent for a while, and then slowly put the knife into his own pocket. “Where did you learn it, little kids shouldn’t play with knives, don’t you know it’s dangerous?”

“…Am I ugly?” Huang Xiaomei still lowered her head, but Bian Shengjian clearly saw two tears falling down.

“Let’s take a look,” Bian Shengjian sighed, squatted down and pinched Huang Xiaomei’s chin to take a closer look.

“Well…not ugly, much better than when I was a child. Don’t listen to those little bastards in your class making up such nicknames.”

“Really?” Huang Xiaomei asked in a nasaly voice.

“Really,” Bian Shengjian reached out and touched his pocket, “but you’re ugly when you cry.”

“Certainly not!” 

Huang Xiaomei couldn’t help laughing, and became a little embarrassed. “Actually, I took that knife from my house secretly…”

“Remember not to be impulsive next time, it’s easy for things to go wrong.” Bian Shengjian reached out and pinched the tip of her nose. “Fortunately, I have tissue paper here….. Close your mouth and wipe your nose.”

Lu Shen looked at Bian Shengjian fixedly, and unconsciously showed a faint smile. This was the first time he had seen Bian Shengjian show such a gentle expression since they entered the realm.

“What to do now?” After coaxing Huang Xiaomei a few more words, Shengjian raised his head, thinking about her home with a foul atmosphere, he couldn’t help frowning, “Just send her back like this?”

“I don’t want to go back.” Huang Xiaomei immediately tightened her grip on Bian Shengjian’s hem.

“No, if she doesn’t go back now, it will disrupt the process.” Lu Shen also frowned slightly, “Xiao Mei, you have to go back tonight. “

“Okay…” Huang Xiaozhu bit her lip, raised his head and glanced at the two of them carefully. “Am I really not dreaming? I always feel like I am dreaming when I am with you both.”

“Is there someone as handsome as me in your dream?” Bian Shengjian snorted.

Huang Xiaomei was stunned and smiled. “Big Brother, you are really narcissistic.”

“What narcissistic,” Bian Shengjian immediately leaned his face in front of her. “Look carefully, isn’t big brother really handsome.”

“Handsome.” Huang Xiaomei smiled and wiped the tears from the corners of her eyes. “I just…I haven’t had anyone care about me so much for a long time.”

Bian Shengjian put his hand on top of her head for a while before saying, “Go back first, we will see you tomorrow.”

“Really? Good!” Huang Xiaomei nodded vigorously, and after being sent downstairs, she waved to them reluctantly. “Goodbye, big brothers.”

“Goodbye.” Bian Shengjian also waved his hand, watching Huang Xiaomei go upstairs without saying a word.

“Xiao Mei’s character is very clear.” Lu Shen sighed deeply, “Generally speaking, the more extreme a person’s personality is, the easier it is to turn into a resentful spirit after death.”

“Is it her fault that she has an extreme personality?” Bian Shengjian turned to stare at him, “If you were her, your parents became like that, you were adopted by two animals, and you were bullied by your classmates at school, can you bear it?”

“That’s not the problem…” Lu Shen also looked at him. “Forget it, I won’t argue with you about this.”

“Then what are we going to do in the next few days? Wait?” Bian Shengjian frowned, “Where do you sleep? How do you eat?”

“We’re not entities from here, so we don’t need to eat or rest.” Lu Shen said and hesitated, “If you’re not used to it…”

“It’s nothing.” Bian Shengjian lowered his head and touched his stomach. “It just feels a little strange.”

“Good, we only have to wait for the next few days.” Lu Shen said, “Follow her to school tomorrow to see what’s going on.”

“If you want to be more comfortable tonight, just find a hotel.” Lu Shen thought for a while.

“No, what if someone suddenly comes in and opens the room while I was resting?” Bian Shengjian frowned and rejected the proposal with disgust. “Fuck, I don’t want to see someone rolling over me as soon as I open my eyes.”

Lu Shen was stunned for a moment before he laughed. “Damn, probably not.”

“I’m sitting here.” Bian Shengjian snorted and sat down on a concrete box beside him. “It’s the same wherever I stay.”

“You…” Lu Shen raised his head and glanced upstairs, and hesitantly sat down beside him. “Shengjian, don’t show your true feelings.”

Bian Shengjian didn’t even glance at him, and when he stretched his legs forward, he closed his eyes.

“Don’t forget, Huang Xiaomei is dead.” Lu Shen said, “Bringing in too much of your own emotions will only disturb…”

“Shut up.” Bian Shengjian said with his eyes closed.

Lu Shen fell silent, and after a while, he asked softly, “Is it cold?”

Bian Shengjian didn’t speak. Although he was conscious, he still kept his eyes closed. Time seemed to flow very slowly at this moment, but it seemed as if it would be sunrise in the next second.

“Wake up.” Lu Shen patted him, “She should be going to school at this point.”

“Huh?” Bian Shengjian opened his eyes in a daze, “Fuck, I fell asleep?”

“The time for those unrelated to the incident will speed up.” Lu Shen said, stood up, looked at the direction of the stairs and asked casually. “Is there any other girl who is worth waiting downstairs all night?”

Bian Shengjian glanced at him, and before he could comprehend any other meaning from the sentence, a girl suddenly rushed out of the corridor, leaning forward with hands propped on her knees and panting violently.

“Xiao Mei?” Bian Shengjian hurried up to meet her, Huang Xiaomei raised her head instantly when she heard the voice, pounced on him with tears on her face, stretched out her hand and hugged his waist tightly, crying loudly.

“Wuwuwu …”

“What’s the matter…shit!” Bian Shengjian quickly looked left and right, took advantage of seeing no one, lifted her sleeve, and saw a clear red mark on the white and tender arm, which was slightly swollen. “They beat you again?”

“Yeah.” Huang Xiaomei choked and nodded.

“Damn.” Bian Shengjian gritted his teeth, “If I could just touch them…I will definitely kill them.”

“It’s okay, the injury should go away in a while.” Lu Shen came over and took a closer look, then sighed. “Let’s send her to school first, the process cannot be disrupted.”

“Process, Lu Shen, are you a fucking cold-blooded animal?” Bian Shengjian said without thinking, “Her injury needs to be dealt with now.”

“No, she has to go to school now.” Lu Shen and him looked at each other, his tone unrelenting, “As I said, you must listen to me in everything.”

“Big Brother, please stop arguing…” Seeing that the atmosphere suddenly became tense, Huang Xiaomei reached out and grabbed the finger of Bian Shengjian. “I’m going to school, and only by getting good grades can I become an excellent person.”

“Huh?” Bian Shengjian looked down at her.

“These are what I heard from the teacher.” Huang Xiaomie touched her nose embarrassedly.

“Ah.” Bian Shengjian was stunned and squeezed her hand a few times. “The teacher is right, you will definitely become a very good person.”

“Will you take me to the gate?” Huang Xiaomei said cautiously when there was still some distance from the school entrance.

“Well, it’s easy for others to find out if it’s too close.” Lu Shen touched her head.

“Why can I only see you?” Huang Xiaomei asked again in confusion before leaving.

Bian Shengjian was silent for a long time, unable to give an accurate answer, but said vaguely. “Go ahead quickly, we’ll pick you up after school.”

“Okay!” Huang Xiaomei’s eyes lit up, and then she murmured, “It’s great… I can have someone to pick me up too.”

“Go on, or you’ll be late.”

Lu Shen added in a timely manner.

Seeing Huang Xiaomei walking towards the school with her school bag on her back, Bian Shengjian couldn’t help but squint his eyes. “Alas.”

“Huh? What’s wrong?” Lu Shen asked.

“She’s not walking with her head down,” said Bian Shengjian, “I was afraid that she would bump into a telephone pole when I saw her walking like that.”

“Ah.” Lu Shen nodded, feeling stunned, “Yeah.”

After not speaking and only watching her for a while, Lu Shen suddenly turned his head and said, “I have a feeling now.”

“What?” Bian Shengjian glanced at him.

“Both of us, doing this now, doesn’t it seem like we’re sending our daughter off to school.” Lu Shen said.

Bian Shengjian: “…..”

“Scram.”
