Dear Love - Chapter 2.2
I stared at the time displayed on the computer in front of the police desk. I was practically so shocked that I was at a loss of words. I went back to ten years ago! Ten years ago! Ten years before, ‘Regret’ hadn’t started, ten years ago when I hadn’t met Jay!
“Miss Gu, this accident was caused by the retrograde of the truck in front of you. You are not responsible for it. The compensation insurance company for the accident has already gone to the scene and will contact you again soon. Now, you can leave after the notes are taken.
“Oh,” I answered, but still nodded blankly at the police officer. Is there really such a thing as transmigration in the world? Yes! Thinking that I lowered my head and looked at the back of my hand. The thin scar left on the back of my hand resulting from the fight with Xu Mei was gone… What happened? Did I really return to myself ten years ago?
But, Just as I absentmindedly walked a few steps, I was stopped by the police officer.
I raised my head in surprise and shook my head to wake myself up. Afterward, I looked at the police officer who looked at me seriously and asked, “Sir, didn’t you say I could leave?”
He shrugged and pointed at my arms. “Miss Gu, you can leave. But you have to leave the child here”
I was stunned. I looked down at the little guy who had been held in my arms. He slept uneasily. A pair of small hands grabbed my clothes tightly. His eyes were red, and his mouth pouted uneasily, with tears all over his face. I caressed his face lovingly. I don’t know if it was because I felt sorry for him or something, I suddenly felt a little choked up.
Thinking of Jay’s phone call again, he said he had a daughter… I stroke the tender face of An An in my arms, hugged the little guy tightly for a few minutes, and shook my head firmly. The faint idea in my heart gradually became clear. Hence, I raised my head and said to the police officer, “In that case, he is my neighbour’s child. There is only the mother and child in his family. Thus if his mother dies, this child has no relatives. You don’t want me to take him now. In the end, he will be sent to the orphanage. Instead of this, it would be better for me to adopt him now. I live next door to this child, and I was waiting at the door of the operating room when he was born. He knows me so he won’t be afraid. I will love him like he is my own child. Sir, do you say yes?”
“Miss Gu, you are not married and have no fixed income. This is not allowed” The police officer reached out to stop me, his eyes also were a little more strict.
When it comes to marriage, I thought of the tragedy of being dumped after ten years of love. What’s the issue of getting married or not! An old spinster can’t have children? Ha! “I’m not short of money. I can afford to look after ten Gu Xiao An!” The chaotic thoughts in my head made me flare up a little. I glared at the police officer and shouted.
Withal, as soon as I finished shouting, I felt I was being rude. I shook my head and stopped my imagination from running wild, from thinking about it. I was afraid I would wake Gu Xiao An in my arms because of the noise. I couldn’t really leave alone. I had to step back and sit in the chair. After calming down for a while, I spoke again: “Mr. Police, it’s like this. I repeat, this child’s mother was my neighbour. I used to help her take care of him at home. This little guy knows me, he and I are close. He is small, doesn’t understand anything, and knows little about life. In such a case, he has no other relatives. Let me take him first, okay? Otherwise, when he wakes up and opens his eyes, he would recognize no one. How would he not be lonely and scared?”
The police officer was moved by the suggestion, but he still shrugged and refused to compromise.
As a result, the fire that had finally suppressed in my heart lit up again. But, thinking about it, he was also doing things according to the rules. It was unreasonable of me to make trouble without any reason. But I knew I couldn’t leave An An here. Although I don’t know what kind of fate it is to let me return to Italy, to meet An An again, and encounter this car accident. I have a father and elder cousin who loved me. As I didn’t have a mother ever since I was young, I was lonely and afraid. Then, what about An An who has no one to rely on because of this traffic accident. I don’t even dare to imagine…
At that moment, I thought of my omnipotent daddy. Although it was something very unpromising for me to do since right now I was running away from home. Nevertheless, when I face a problem, my father is still the best!
