Completing the matter, He Long hurriedly headed towards the legal office together with Ling Chun while Yu Shulin remained in the hotel. After thinking a bit, he took out his cell phone and hesitated for a while before sending a text message to Liang Zhou.
‘I am staying in a hotel right now. The house is ready to be sold and I will shortly delete the fixed phone number, so if you need me, then please call me here.’
And then he added another sentence, ‘Do you want anything you like?’
Since his brother has helped him a lot, gifted him a mobile phone and the two will be in contact with each other for a long time in the future… then he will return some kindness.
However, the message sent was like a stone into the sea, as he didn’t receive any replies. After he waited for some more and realized that the answer wouldn’t come, he lifted his backpack and stuffed in the pocket money and the bankbook handed by He Long and walked out.
In the deposit book there were 620k yuan, all the assets that Mother Yu left behind. Who knew when Ling Chun withdrew it, since it was firmly in Yu Xiu and lawyer Zhou’s possession and he couldn’t even catch the sight of it.
He first stopped at the bank to retract 2k yuan and then took a taxi towards the cemetery in the suburb.
Mother Yu worked as a personal stylist and her level wasn’t bad, getting those rich, married women’s likes. Normally, she would travel to each beauty shop to be a consultant and do such work.
That day of the accident, she has been invited as a host in a promotional event about sunscreen, so she set off very early. The event was very important, so it took place on a small public square outdoors. The daughter of the renter whined to eat ice-cream, however they were busy trying the products and couldn’t leave for now. Therefore, as soon as they spotted Mother Yu, they kindly asked her to take the girl to buy some ice-cream.
At that time, a shop from the multi-storied building opposite from them was under renovation and the support rack wasn’t well erected. Suddenly, it collapsed. Mother Yu happened to pass by the girl, so she couldn’t dodge in time. Instead, she pushed the girl away decisively and was crushed head-on.
Such a clearly attractive woman has died in an extremely tragic way. The adults were afraid of provoking him, so they didn’t even let him see the last bits of her. And that good morning kiss that mother gave him when he was in a hazy sleepiness that day, turned out to be the last memory of his mother in his mind.
He bought some joss sticks and paper money outside the graveyard and tidied up his clothes before entering. The place where his mother was buried was very desolate, however it was better like this, because it would be peaceful and nobody would disturb him.
After reaching the tomb, he laid down the paper money and crouched down. Making a lot of psychological preparations, he finally had the courage to raise his head and stare at the photo plastered on the headstone.
In the photo, the pretty woman’s smile was very bright, her lips curved up while her eyes were gentle and soft.
“Mom, you are still very beautiful.” He hooked up his lips in a faint smile as he stretched his hand to touch the tombstone in front of him, and his eyes were slightly reddening, “Look at me… More and more useless… But I am fine… Mom, do you miss me?”
The wind blew over, carrying the scent of the vegetation.
“Mom… Actually, I don’t feel well… I miss you a lot.”
The sunlight became more intense, shining on the gravestone, making it lighter.
Lowering his eyes, he started to burn the paper money and insert the sticks. Afterwards, he knelt and earnestly knocked his head on the stone a few times. After he stood up, he carefully cleaned the memorial.
“Counting from the past life to this one, I haven’t seen you for almost seven, eight years, mom… I am very unfilial.” He murmured, as all the feelings transformed into grievance, unaware that his tone carried traces of complaint and coquetry, “I was really a fool in the past life. That uncle is too spoiled… Mom, you must help me get revenge.”
But the woman in the photo only kept on smiling as her eyes were still soft and gentle.
“Never mind. Just go to reincarnate, mom… I will look after myself in this life, so don’t worry.”
Finished cleaning, he stared blankly for a moment, and then sat down, leaning on the gravestone. His mind was in an awful mess, rethinking everything about the past lifetime and this current one.
“Weren’t I really a fool?”
“Mom… I am sorry, I am sorry…”

Wiping off the sweat on his forehead, his throat felt thoroughly dry. After rubbing his puffy eyes and being silent for a while, he finally let out a breath, and got up again as he patted his pants. Sending the last look, he smiled at the stone, “Mom, I am about to leave la.”
Now that he was reborn, then he must live this life well and for himself.
“I will come again whenever I have time.” Waving his head, he deeply impressed the picture on the tombstone in his mind before turning his body to walk away.
Until now, his brain was filled with the matters of his past life, while his heart was nearly stuffed full with negative and dark emotions. If his future would still be immutable, then his feelings will have to continue to struggle in the mud.
Hence, he must work hard in order to become like his Mother Yu, that kind of person.
After Ling Chun and He Long left in a rush, Yu Shulin could barely catch a shadow. So, he quickly ate his lunch, and a short nap later, he headed towards the largest shopping center of W City in high spirits. From the small signs it was obvious that that cheap brother was very well-off, so he must not buy an inexpensive gift.
After darting towards the shopping center smugly and roughly strolling around, Yu Shulin became dispirited—There were too many items! And since he wasn’t acquainted with Liang Zhou yet, he completely didn’t know what to buy.
Checking the cell phone to take a glance, there was no reply to the message he sent in the morning as before. So he navigated through the other party’s phone number and his finger lingered over the dialing button. However, in the end, he couldn’t press it.
Why did he suddenly feel a little embarrassed… Would he disturb him by calling in this way…
Hesitating, he received a message reminding him about dinner by He Long as the sun set down. Gritting his teeth, he rushed in the nearest store—‘Never mind, I will randomly buy something! At worst, I will compensate with other stuff later’.
During dinner, Yu Shulin pushed two small boxes before Ling Chun and He Long and awkwardly thanked, “Thank you for taking care of me in those few days. Yeah, those gifts are for you.”
Ling Chun and He Long exchanged a look, astonished. An instant later, Ling Chun was the first one to extend his hand, clasp the box and open it to take a look, “A key ring?”
“I don’t know what you like, so I listened to Miss shop assistant’s recommendations and chose this item.” Drooping his eyes, he jabbed at the rice in his bowl with the chopsticks, not that confident about the presents he selected because it has been years since he came apart with the society.
Ling Chun was somewhat a sharp person, so he sensed his uneasiness from his calm expression right away. Smiling, he stealthily elbowed the dumb He Long. He then fished out a key ring, substituted the keys with the new one and threw the old one away. Shaking them, he opined, “Xiao Yu’s eyes aren’t bad… I really like it, thank you.”
He Long also finally collected his thoughts, promptly grabbed the gift meant for him and copied Ling Chun as he swapped the old key ring with the new one. Raising the corners of his mouth, he revealed a faint smile, “Thank you.”
“You are welcome.” Yu Shulin breathed out a sigh. He lifted his head to smile back at them, and then lowered it to hurriedly finish the food in the bowl. After that, he bid farewells before returning to the room.
Gazing at the leaving figure of the youth, the smile on Ling Chun’s face disappeared. Wobbling the simple key ring, he sighed, “When we met him, he was full of thorns in front of Yu Xiu. I always believed that this child was just a little hedgehog. But after interacting with him for a few days, he only looks well-behaved like a rabbit… It seems I made a mistake.”
He Long stuffed the key ring in his pocket, cast him a glance and didn’t comment. Daring to compare the boss’ little brother to a rabbit, he simply didn’t want to live anymore.
Ling Chun glared at this annoying and silent scoundrel. Clutching at the gift box on the table, he took out his mobile phone and pressed a number.
“This is Master’s appraisal, your honorable little brother is a very honest person. He is polite towards people, therefore worthy to bring up. I hope Your Excellency will guide him with utmost care. Plus, I really like the present that Xiao Yu gifted me. He is a very considerate cotton-padded child. Too bad that there is no gift for you, hahaha.”
