Chapter 23 Daddy-Long-Legs’ Love Story 3 (part 2)
Recently the system got Matcha flavor sunflower seeds, so it ate them day and night. Bai Luoluo couldn’t help but went to the supermarket to buy some sunflower seeds to eat and give to other teachers by the said.
But he doesn’t eat sunflower seeds today because he has mouth sores. It’s nice that the system will never get sick. Bai Luoluo told this idea to the system and then it disdained to say, you don’t know that a few systems were complained by the hosts because of eating sunflower seeds…
“Really?” said Bai Luoluo, “Can I complain?”
System: “Dear, what do you want to complain about me?”
“No,” said Bai Luoluo, “I’m just asking.”
Then the system asked Bai Luoluo not to complain him with a heavy tone of pleadings. It said the system is very tragic, if it is complained, it will be formatted, so you have to use the complaint function with caution.
“Well,” said Bai Luoluo, “I will certainly be careful with it.”
The system said, “Dear, I love you so much, kiss me.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” Where did you learn that accent of Taobao’s services?
After each monthly exam, the head teacher will find some students to have a heart-to-heart talk to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their subjects and give some suggestions to them.
The results of Bai Nianjin kept in the usual level, but Bai Luoluo still called Bai Nainjin to ask if he has some learning confusion. Though Bai Luoluo spoke most of the time alone, he could feel a change in his attitude — a good sign that finally he won’t refuse his concern, which means Bai Luoluo can further care for him.
It was November when Bai Luoluo came here, and he had familiarized himself with life here before the final examination.
At the end of the semester, the atmosphere in school became tense, and teachers tried everyting to squeeze time and assign more homework so that students may do better on the final exam.
Bai Luoluo also did not approach Bai Nianjin deliberately. He just brought breakfast as usual and sometimes after the evening self-study, he took Bai Nianjin to eat some night snack. When he saw his shoes was broken, he bought him a few pairs of cotton shoes quietly.
The system said that Bai Luoluo is like a long-legged uncle, who protects Bai Nianjin to grow up.
Bai Luoluo said who would not like to see such a lovely child grow up well.
The system said, “Well, you know, a couple of guys had failed on this mission.”
The system said this when Bai Luoluo Luo was cutting vegetables. He was stunned: “Ah? How can they fail?”
The system said “I don’t know exactly, but Luoluo, you’re a really good person.”
Bai Luoluo thought the system was speaking in a strange tone, but he didn’t think much of it and cut the turnip in half. He was going to cut some turnips and stew them with beef, and take them to school for Bai Nianjin tomorrow.
The next day, Bai Nianjin ate the beef braised by Bai Luoluo, but Bai Luoluo gave him to eat secretly. The child stuffed a piece of meat into his mouth in the office, and his cheeks bulged.
Bai Luoluo said: “Hush, I bring this for you secretly, don’t say to other people.”
“Thanks, teacher.” Bai Nianjin swallowed the meat, and then was a little choked with his eyes flashing tears.
Bai Luoluo thought the child is so hard that he can cry when eat a piece of beef, then he gently said: “Eat slowly, no one will rob it from you.”
Bai Luoluo told Bai Nianjin to study hard for the final exam again.
“I will.” said Bai Nianjin. The final exam results are tied to the scholarship. If he failed, the next semester’s tuition will be a problem. High School is no longer compulsory education, and although he is a poor student in the school as having a large reduction in tuition fees, he still has to pay some.
Bai Nianjin’s mouth was full of the taste of beef. As he walked to the classroom, all he thought was Li Hansheng’s smile at him. The teacher should still be very young, with a pair of glasses, he looks gentle and cultured. Bai Nianjin does not know why he should be so good to himself, perhaps just because he is his student? Also right, teacher Li is gentle to everyone. Bai Nianjin felt a little gloomy.
It was snowing heavily on the day of the final examination.
Bai Luoluo took off his coat and sat down at his desk to supervise the examination. Students rarely take the exam in their own class. Bai Nianjin should be upstairs.
It was too boring to supervise the examination, so Bai Luoluo chatted with the system. The system told stories it had seen before to Bai Luoluo while it ate sunflower seeds, some touching, some bloody, even a horror story.
The system said, “Holy shit, you don’t know that world is really scary.”
“How terrible?” said Bai Luoluo.
The system said, “My host was scared shitless at least three times.”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
The system said sadly: “He did not survive and died at last.”
Bai Luoluo was not particularly afraid of horror movies. When he went to watch movies with his roommates in school, his roommates held his hand and trembled, while he remained impassive the whole time. After he came out of the cinema, a few of his roommates also said that they all thought that Bai Luoluo would be frightened.
“Just so so. Are you scared to death?” said Bai Luoluo.
The system said, “Yeah, no one in that world has ever succeeded, alas…”
Bai Luoluo found that the civil service is also difficult.
Then the system said something about their development history and he felt more and more mysterious. He asked the system: “You were not developed by humans of the Earth?”
The system said, “No, we immigrated here.”
“Oh…” said Bai Luoluo.
The system said proudly: “You earth people still want to invent us? That is impossible.”
Bai Luoluo understood. He just thought these systems are less like human. Now he thinks they must be a new species…
They deepened the understanding to each other.
After the examination, the students are ready for their winter vacation.
Winter vacation is not long, but there are a lot of homework, so students are painful and happy at the same time. The good students in the class begins to pick up the books they wants to take home. As he watches them, he thinks that you’re not going to read them..
Bai Nianjin is also gathering up his things. His schoolbag is very big, while he is quite small. Bai Luoluo is a bit afraid that the schoolbag will burden him to the ground.
So Bai Luoluo made an excuse and called Bai Nianjin to sit on the back seat of his bicycle.
Bai Nianjin appeared to be a little hesitant when Bai Luoluo said he wants to send him home. He moved his lips and did not say any words in the end.
It stopped snowing that day. Bai Luoluo was afraid of Bai Nianjin being too cold, so he rode very fast. Bai Nianjin in the back seat carefully held Bai Luoluo’s waist.
The body temperature of Bai Luoluo spread to Bai Nianjin through the clothes. He felt as if he was in a dream, so he even dare not breathe too loudly for being afraid of waking up.
How many times did Bai Nianjin hope someone to take him back home? But no one had ever offered him an umbrella, no matter it was raining or snowing heavily. He had to carry a heavy bag and slowly went back to the cold room.
Bai Luoluo rode more than ten minutes and then arrived at the Bai Nianjin’s residence.
It had been snowing recently, and snow had accumulated on the roofs of the places where he lives. Most of the houses here are in a state of disrepair, so he even worried that the places would be crushed under the snow.
“I’m here.” Bai Nianjin got off the bike and said to Bai Luoluo, “Thank you, teacher, go back.”
Bai Luoluo hesitated for a moment, but picked up the bag of Bai Nianjin. He said: “I send you upstairs.”
“No, you don’t need to do that.” Bai Nianjin was a bit nervous.
“Nothing.” He patted at Bai Nianjin’s head and smiled, “This bag is too heavy, let’s go.”
Bai Nianjin bit his lips and walked forward slowly. He hoped the road would never end, because he didn’t want his teacher to see his home.
However, five minutes later, he still reached the house. When he noticed the lights in the room, Bai Nianjin’ face got more pale.
What’s wrong with this kid? Bai Luoluo heard some ambiguous voices far away. As an adult, he is naturally very familiar to these voices. For a moment, he had the idea of beating her mother again — he knew there is only one room and one hall in his house. Apparently, his mother didn’t shut up the door of the bedroom when she did those things, most probably in the presence of Bai Nianjin…
“Nainjin,” Bai Luoluo really could not stand him to enter into such a house. He gently said, “how about sleeping in my house today? I can make you delicious food today.”
Bai Nianjin glanced at Bai Luoluo and said nothing.
Bai Luoluo bent down and took up his cold hand, then asked in a warm voice: “Okay?”
Bai Nianjin looked down at his wet shoes and nodded slightly.
At last, with a sigh of relief, he said to the system, “It seems like you’re going to get me another sack.”
The system said coldly: “Just call a police to let his mother enter in the police office.”
Bai Luoluo felt that the system was making a lot of sense that it was wrong to beat people. As the successor to socialism, he should learn to use the weapon of law to protect the flowers of his motherland.
The author has something to say:
Bai Luoluo: I don’t have a little brother, I only have a big brother.
