Hearing Liu Mingxin say it so interestingly, the children all talked together:
“Hehe, Brother Liu has met his match this time!”
“That’s right, that’s right, Young Master Dali sounds really amazing. I wonder how he did it, even Brother Liu can’t defeat him in the fight!”
“I don’t think that’s called a fight. It’s not like they hate each other or something. It should be called… called… Oh, right, it should be called a duel!”
“Yes, you are right, they are having a duel! Hehe!”
Looking at these cute children, Liu Mingxin’s mood was quite good.
He happened to bump into this orphanage by coincidence. At that time, these six children were going to be sold by human traffickers to the mountain area. In the end, the three human traffickers were all incapacitated by him and rescued these children. At that time, these small kids were only 3 to 4 years old. He heard from them that they were lured out of their orphanage and decided to adopt them himself since he had the financial capability anyways, and had been raising them for four years now.
It could be said that these children were the softest spot in Liu Mingxin’s heart. He would come over every week to see them and tell them stories and stuff.
These children were all very sensible too. Normally, they would be learning simple Chinese characters with Hanyu Pinyin. Currently, he was planning to send them to school soon.
“Time has really passed by so fast, it’s already four years, hehe…” Liu Mingxin thought to himself and shook his head. Just as he was about to tell them some more interesting stories, his phone suddenly rang.
Liu Mingxin frowned, picked up the phone and saw that it was actually his Dad.
“Dad? What could he want at this time?” When he accepted the call, Liu Yihui’s loud voice immediately came over. “Mingxin, come to the University of Medicine’s affiliated hospital, floor 36, ward 101 immediately. You grandfather, something happened to him!”
“Something happened to my grandfather?” Liu Mingxin directly hanged up after saying, “I will be there immediately.”
Seeing that Liu Mingxin was leaving, the children were all very sensible and kept quiet. The bravest little girl obediently said, “Brother Liu, did something happen to Big Grandfather? Then, hurry and go see him, we will take care of ourselves!” After she finished speaking, the other children all nodded vigorously too, acting like grown-ups.
“Hehe, OK. Remember to behave yourselves and listen to Sister Xiao Ming, understand?” Liu Mingxin squatted down, smiled and touched their heads. “All of you will be able to go to school during the second half of the year. By that time, I will send you all there, is that OK?”
“OK!!!” The six adorable children all shouted in unison.
“Young Master Liu, you… You are leaving now?” Hearing their shout, Xiao Ming hurriedly walked out from the kitchen. “Do you need me to help with anything?”
“Yup…” Liu Mingxin thought for a while and said, “Let me bring some of the food that you cooked. My grandfather should be hungry by now.”
“OK, just give me a moment.” After receiving the instruction, Xiao Ming hurriedly went back into the kitchen.
“Brother Liu.” That brave little girl pulled his hand and said, “Sister Xiao Ming is very nice and pretty. Brother Liu, you like her? Why don’t you bring her along, we will be fine by ourselves.”
“Xiao Ming?” Liu Mingxin looked towards the kitchen, smiled and shook his head. “She’s a good girl, but… Yup, maybe I really should bring her over to bring in some joy. For the sake of my grandfather, this is nothing much.” Thinking up to this point, Liu Mingxin gently said, “Then, you guys must be obedient at home. No matter who asks you to open the door, don’t open it, OK? Also, you are not allowed to touch the fire, water, and electrical appliances!”
“Yup, we know that!” The little girl replied.
Very quickly, Xiao Ming put the food in a thermal container and handed it to Liu Mingxin. “Young Master, the food is ready. Go quickly, don’t let grandfather be anxious.”
“Hehe, come along with me.” Liu Mingxin gave a warm and beautiful sunshine-like smile and softly pulled her hand. “I think that if grandfather sees you, he will be very happy.”
“Ah? I…” Xiao Ming felt shocked and surprised at the same time. Her face bright red, she said, “How could that do, my background…”
“That’s not important, just come with me first, we can talk on the car.” Time waits for no one. Liu Mingxin didn’t even let Xiao Ming take off her apron and just pulled her along. “Don’t hesitate anymore, come with me.”
“Ah… OK…” Lastly, she turned back and instructed the children. “Wait for me to come back, don’t open the door for anyone.”
“OK. Go now, Sister Xiao Ming!”
After getting in the car, Liu Mingxin started the car and sped towards Tianjing University of Medicine’s affiliated hospital which was located in the North Second Loop.
On the road there, Xiao Ming was obviously quite nervous.
Speaking of which, she was just an ordinary girl. Her looks were very pure, her skin very white, her eyes very big and spirited, but her family background was pretty bad. She came from a small village and didn’t have any qualifications. Therefore, she could only go to the labor market to find a job. As a result, she met a few people who came up to her with obviously bad intentions. At that time, she was really frightened. Luckily, Liu Mingxin was preparing to hire a caretaker for the children at that time too. He saw the situation and rescued her.
1,500 yuan a month, food and housing included. This treatment was really quite good. Xiao Ming, who came from a small village, naturally didn’t reject.
She was a very capable girl. Low-profile and hardworking, she cleaned the rooms spotless every day, and her cooking was quite good too. Every time Liu Mingxin came, he would always eat more than usual.
What Liu Mingxin was most satisfied with was that she never had any request. If it was some other woman, after they were familiar with Liu Mingxin, they would probably have some other ideas. However, Xiao Ming was different, she always just did her part and never said anything extra.
Maybe she liked Liu Mingxin too, but she would never express it.
This was a very traditional girl, traditional and sensible.
“Young Master Liu, is it… really good for me to go?” Xiao Ming sat at the passenger seat with her whole body stiff. She had vaguely heard of Liu Mingxin’s background before. A big family, estates that were worth billions, he was definitely a person with very high status. She was but a lass from a small village, their distance in status was too big, as far apart as the Earth and the Sky.
“Hehe, what’s not good about it?” Eyes tightly looking a the road ahead, Liu Mingxin softly asked, “Because of your background?”
“Yup…” Xiao Ming’s face was bright red, her voice like the humming of a mosquito. “Going over in this type of scenario, isn’t that… isn’t that… akin to being Young Master Liu’s girl… Girlfriend… I… I am a bit afraid…”
It was no wonder she was so apprehensive. The grandfather was ill and the grandson brought a girl over to visit him, anyone would think the same way.
Instead, Liu Mingxin was quite indifferent. He smiled and said, “What’s wrong with that? If we trace back a few generations, the Liu Family were all farmers too. It’s not like I’m superior over others, hehe.”
Hearing this, Xiao Ming quickly quietened down. Although she was still a bit apprehensive, she wasn’t as nervous as before. She asked, “Then, Young Master Liu, when we arrive, what should I… What should I do?”
“You don’t have to do anything.” Liu Mingxin thought for a while and gradually said, “Just feed my grandfather some porridge or something. Old people always wish that they could have their sons and grandsons around them. My grandfather is ill now, so I’m bringing you there to bring in some joy to wash away the gloomy atmosphere. When he gets happy, maybe he will recover a bit.”
“Oh…” Hearing his words, Xiao Ming couldn’t help but felt a little disappointed. So Young Master Liu is only bringing me there to let his grandfather feel happy… However, she quickly got over it. But even so, I’m already very happy. At last Young Master Liu didn’t just treat me as a caretaker, hehe.
Very quickly, the car stopped inside the courtyard of the hospital. Liu Mingxin brought Xiao Ming along and ran in. On the way, they met Liu Mingcheng running over from another direction. Once they met, Liu Mingcheng asked, “Brother, grandfather, he…”
“It shouldn’t be something major. Just come with me first.” The three of them instantly went upstairs.
On the way there, Liu Mingcheng curiously looked at Xiao Ming and asked, “Brother, this is… You still brought a caretaker here? This caretaker is quite pretty, is she from a village? Her facial features are quite good-looking, just that she seems a bit of a country bumpkin.”
Liu Mingcheng’s words caused Xiao Ming’s face to become bright red. Liu Mingxin shook his face and said, “She’s my girlfriend.”
“Ah!? Seriously!?” Liu Mingcheng shouted and looked her from head to toe. He suddenly said, “It’s not that I’m reprimanding you, my sister-in-law is such a beautiful person but you didn’t dress her up properly. Look at her long hair that reached her waist, this is the time when you should marry her 1 , yet she ended up like this!” Saying so, Liu Mingcheng grinned and said towards Xiao Ming, “Sister-in-law, my brother is a log-head. I will help to dress you up when we go back. He will definitely be shocked!”
“You little rascal.” Liu Mingxin laughed and scoldingly said, “You really joke around with just anyone. Now isn’t the time to say this, the more important thing is to hurry up and go see grandfather.”
“Yup, OK!” Liu Mingcheng fiercely nodded.
Although Liu Mingcheng’s relationship with Hong Dali in school was like fire and water, in actual fact, he was quite good towards his family—especially his brother, Liu Mingxin. Liu Mingcheng had always looked up to his brother as an idol since young.
Very quickly, the three of them reached floor 36, ward 101. Once they went in, Liu Yihui lowered his voice and said, “You guys are here. Quick, come in!”
“Grandfather, are you OK?” Liu Mingxin walked in front of Liu Zhongyuan’s bed and sat down. He softly pulled the blanket for him and then asked, “Grandfather, are you hungry? Let Xiao Ming feed you some porridge.”
“Xiao Ming?” As expected, upon hearing Liu Mingxin’s words, Liu Zhongyuan’s eyes lit up. He waved his hand at Xiao Ming, gesturing her to come closer. “Child, come over here to let grandfather take a look at you.”
“Grandfather…” Xiao Ming shyly walked over and sat on the bed. Her face was bright red and a bit shy.
“Yup.” Liu Zhongyuan meticulously looked at her and said in satisfaction, “Her facial features are good-looking, her skin is also quite good, the hair is long and black—she is a pretty lass, hehe.” Saying so, he helped Liu Mingxin to find excuses. “This child, Mingxin, is unfamiliar towards relationships. He doesn’t know how to make girls happy. You have to forgive him for this.”
“Grand… Grandfather…” Xiao Ming’s tears immediately flowed down. “Young Master Liu is very good towards me…”
“I hope so.” Liu Zhongyuan waved his hand at Liu Zhongyuan and the others. “You guys go out first and let me talk to this lass Xiao Ming for a while.”
“Then… then we shall be going out first.” Liu Mingxin’s eyes went red and the three of them instantly went out.
After only Liu Zhongyuan and Xiao Ming were left in the room, Liu Zhongyuan then smiled and gently said, “Child, tell me honestly, you came today because Mingxin wanted to make me happy. Am I right?”
