C27—- Childhood Memories
Thanks for the Ko-fi AshKaur
Lu Wenxing and Lu Xiaofei agreed on a time, he asked the director for half a day off in advance, because he was usually serious and diligent, the director had a very good impression of him, he immediately agreed and even asked him if half a day was enough time.
That night, after his scenes, Lu Wenxing went straight to the airport and hurried back home to B City.
When he was young, every few months there would be parents who lost their children looking for them, and as he grew older, the months turned into six months and then a year and then two, three, four years after he started high school, he didn’t encounter any more parents looking for their children, but he never thought his parents had given up looking for him.
The world was a big place, and it was indeed difficult to find someone in a sea of people, and his biological parents hadn’t found him.
But likewise, Lu Wenxing also hadn’t found his biological parents.
People had a very contradictory existence, Lu Wenxing was worried about the novel plot, worried about his adoptive parents, he was also worried about him unknowingly entering the path of a cannon fodder.
But he didn’t know why, for the search for his biological parents, he was very determined and sure, one day he was going to find them.
Lu Wenxing was afraid of the plot, but at the same time, he felt that the plot wasn’t so outrageous.
It wasn’t as simple and plain as described in the novel, just a few words summed up his ending.
Lu Wenxing became aware of this after he met Wen Zheng.
Originally, Wen Zheng was Wen Yu’s eldest brother, and Lu Wenxing should avoid him.
But after the first contact, Lu Wenxing felt that this should not be the case.
He didn’t know much about Wen Yu’s family, because the scenes were all summed up in a few sentences, he only knew that the main character suffered from having a dominant brother, and he could decide the life and death of a company with a word.
In fact, this wasn’t the case, whether it was calling the police or sending Jiang Zhengqin to jail, he didn’t use his family name, instead he used tangible evidence and legal sanctions.
So far, the reality seemed to be gradually deviating from the novel, but nothing illogical had happened.
Did this mean that he wouldn’t be affected by the so-called ‘world consciousness’ Of course, being forced to go through the plot was completely speculation, this was what Lu Wenxing saw from another novel.
He couldn’t tell for the time being whether there was also a ‘world consciousness’ in this novel he was in.
From E City back to B City, Lu Wenxing took a more than an hour flight and finally arrived home at 11:00 pm.
Lu Xiaofei and Xie Nian picked him up at the airport early, and asked Lu Wenxing if he was tired from filming.
“No, I’m not tired.” Speaking of this, Lu Wenxing was still a little excited.
“Filming is very interesting, and everyone in the crew takes care of me.”
This was true, Lu Wenxing was a newcomer, in fact, there were many things he didn’t understand in the cast but the others took good care of him.
Lu Wenxing had no assistant, but the staff were very enthusiastic.
It was still cold in E City just after spring, and it was impossible to wear thick clothes for the summer scenes, so the director would have a worker hold onto thicker clothes or hand him hot water as soon as he called the end of a scene.
To be honest, the crew made him happier than in Mang Cheng Entertainment, there was no Wang Man pointing at him, and no one was sneering at him anymore, although Lu Wenxing had never taken those words to heart.
But, anyone would yearn for a more comfortable environment.
“Wenxing.” Lu Xiaofei couldn’t say that she wasn’t worried, but she couldn’t help but give Lu Wenxing a precautionary warning in advance.
“I know.” Lu Wenxing calmly said, “Don’t worry, I promise that whether it is or not, it will not affect my mood.”
If not, it could only be said that fate had to keep him waiting.
Lu Wenxing was the least short of time, it had been nearly fifteen years.
Maybe it would be difficult for others to bear, but for Lu Wenxing, waiting was the yearning for happiness.
He wasn’t an optimistic person, but he was never pessimistic either.
After returning home, Lu Xiaofei worried that Lu Wenxing was too tired from running back and forth, “They will arrive tomorrow morning, have a good night’s rest.”
The next day, Lu Wenxing woke up early.
He looked normal, neither excited nor nervous, and helped Lu Xiaofei cook a hearty breakfast.
The family enjoyed a leisurely morning and waited until nearly noon before the couple who recognized him as their son arrived in a hurry.
Six eyes met, the couple’s eyes instantly lit up, the woman pinned her hair behind her ear, looked at Lu Wenxing with surprise, and said with utmost certainty.
“Can’t be wrong, can’t be wrong, he looks too much like me when I was a child.”
“We found him!” The middle-aged man’s eyes were wrinkled, and the smile at the corners of his mouth became more and more obvious from the time he saw Lu Wenxing, and he took out a yellow old photo from the pocket of his washed white jacket.
The eyes of the boy on the photo was bent at the corners, he had a wide smile on his face, and his fleshy little face was even more adorable.
The pair of light-colored eyes and Lu Wenxing’s current appearance was really similar.
The moment he saw the photo, Lu Xiaofei’s heart skipped a bit, she tightly grabbed Xie Nian’s arm, “Is this not Wenxing Quickly look.”
Xie Nian stared at the little boy on the photo, and then looked carefully at Lu Wenxing.
It was a bit similar, but not quite.
Lu Wenxing had been living in their home since he was rescued, Xie Nian knew Lu Wenxing’s demeanor too well, and the boy in the photo was a little more soft and cute.
When Xie Nian picked up Lu Wenxing from the hospital, Lu Wenxing was a little pale and polite to people, very good and obedient, but he didn’t look like this.
He even remembered that Xie Qingfei had just started kindergarten when Lu Wenxing was already in elementary school.
At that time, Xie Qingfei especially liked to copy Lu Wenxing, because he thought he was very cool.
Yes! Lu Wenxing should have been cool when he was young.
He was also often praised for being a pretty little cool guy.
Lu Wenxing took the photo and looked at it for a while, there was no memory of it and no sense of familiarity.
But he did resemble him.
When the couple saw this look on Lu Wenxing’s face, they looked at each other and were about to say something when they heard Lu Wenxing suddenly ask.
“Where’s my sister”
“Uh …… this” The woman was momentarily stunned, the man beside her took over her words, “You were too young to remember, you don’t have a sister, only a brother.”
“Right! You have a younger brother.” The woman took out another photo, “Look, this is your brother, you two look alike, right”
The little boy in the photo was a little bigger, and it was clear that the photo was taken later, and the clarity was better than the previous photo.
“Wenxing.” Lu Xiaofei pulled over Lu Wenxing, “Although the photo is quite similar, do you want to do a paternity test first”
Lu Wenxing nodded and looked at his watch again.
His flight was at 12 noon.
It was10: 30 now, so it was too late to go to the hospital for paternity test.
“There’s no need to do a paternity test.
This photo is so similar, if you take it out for others to see, who wouldn’t say that this is him”
“You are now called Lu Wenxing, right Can I call you Wenxing” The woman put her hand on her clothes and wiped it, as if she was afraid of being disliked by Lu Wenxing, and hesitated as she tentatively shook his hand.
“Wenxing, the year you were lost, your father and I almost divorced.
In order to find you, he also lost his job, the family’s savings were completely spent.
Later, your father and I began to work as temporary workers, we both took turns to go to work.”
“When he went to work, I went to look for you all over.
When he went to look for you, I went to work, this search ah …… it’s been more than ten years.”
“The good thing is that we finally found you.” The woman wiped her tears, “If we didn’t find you, your father and I don’t know what we’d have done.”
The man sighed, “We know you are busy with work, you temporarily settled in C city, right It’s okay, your mother and I don’t want anything, just come and see us when you have time.”
The woman cried louder, Lu Xiaofei could only make a few comforting remarks, Lu Wenxing didn’t have much time, he left in a hurry and didn’t have time to say a few more words to them, he had to rush to the set.
But once he left the couple blearily withdrew their eyes, then looked at Lu Xiaofei with sad expressions.
“We are grateful that you have taken care of Wenxing for so long, Wenxing has sent you a lot of money over the past few years, right Of course, we don’t mean to ask you for money, that is to say… Wenxing is our child after all, if he is willing to go home, I hope you won’t stop him.”
Lu Xiaofei felt uncomfortable with the woman’s words, she couldn’t help but frown, then she saw Xie Nian shake his head towards her, Lu Xiaofei closed her mouth and didn’t respond.
“Of course, we have also been helping Wenxing to find his biological parents, we hope that he can return to his home.” Xie Nian paused before finishing his sentence.
“The premise is that you are indeed his biological parents.”
“Of course we are his parents, we have also shown you the picture of him as a child, his eyes and nose show what he looked like as a child.”
Lu Xiaofei suddenly became angry, the meaning of these two people’s words seemed to be that they didn’t know the child they raised How did Lu Wenxing grow up
If it wasn’t for the fact that they took out that photo, Lu Xiaofei would definitely kick these two people out directly.
It was hard to send these two people away, Lu Xiaofei’s face was flushed.
“Don’t be angry, they’re gone.” Xie Nian comforted her from the side.
“I’m so angry, I’m so angry.
Wenxing is so cute, his parents shouldn’t be like this, Wenxing was raised finely as a child, this couple don’t look like they could have raised Wenxing that well.”
Xie Nian sighed, “That boy in the photo and Wenxing are a bit alike.”
“What’s that The world’s population is so large, what can resemblance prove, I only believe in paternity tests.”
The appearance of that couple didn’t give Lu Wenxing a special impact, he was thinking about another problem.
After that fever, he didn’t remember anything, but he didn’t know why, but he felt he should have a sister.
Obviously he didn’t remember anything, why did he have this feeling
Lu Wenxing also felt very strange.
As he thought about it, he fell asleep on the plane.
It was a bright afternoon.
“Mom, can I have a sister Little Yiyi has a sister, she’s soft and so cute.”
The woman gently rubbed the boy’s head and said to him with a bit of amusement, “If you like her, you can always go to Yiyi’s house to play with her, but a sister has to be treated gently, she is not a toy, not something you can have if you want it and put aside if you don’t.”
“Well …… I know.
I’m not asking for a toy, if I had a sister, I would treat her very well, better than Yiyi treats his sister.”
“How good” The woman hid a smile.
“Ten thousand times better than Little Yiyi.”
The woman was amused by his naive words and continued.
“If you have a sister, she might steal your toys and cupcakes, so will you cry”
The boy flung himself into her arms, “Can mommy buy two toys and two cupcakes One for me and one for my sister.”
“Quite resourceful.” The woman laughed lightly, “What if there is only one cake left in the cake store, but my sister wants to eat the whole one”
The boy looked down and thought about it, his little face was full of confusion, and after a while he revealed a bright smile.
“Then I can first give my sister all of today’s portion of cupcakes to eat, and then mom will buy me back a double portion to compensate”
The woman’s slender, pretty knuckles gently pinched the boy, “You just want two cupcakes.”
“Mom, I really want a sister, and I will be extra nice to her.
Really, I will be the best brother in the whole world.”
The scene shifted but it was still a sunny afternoon.
“Mommy will respect both of your wishes.
Only if you both agree will mommy bring your sister home, but mommy doesn’t want you to just say yes, you have to think about it carefully before you do.
Because a sister is not coming to stay for a few days and then leave, she will always live here and become a part of our family.”
“I… I want a sister.” The boy’s eyes shone brightly, and he turned to his brother with an expectant face, hoping that he would be of the same mind.
Instead, his brother gave him a disgusted look.
“You want a muppet bear, you want cake, you also want a puzzle racing game, what don’t you want”
“Humph.” Not getting his brother’s approval, the boy said in a small voice with his face turned away, “Don’t want a brother.”
“Don’t want a brother”
The older brother raised an eyebrow and reached out to tickle the little boy’s itchy flesh.
The boy was young, after being held down, he couldn’t break free.
He was particularly ticklish, just a gentle touch on his belly made him bend over in laughter, as he nestled in his brother’s arms, his beautiful eyes were full of water mist.
But he still refused to admit defeat and deliberately said louder, “…… don’t want brother.”
“Say it again.”
“Don’t want brother …… hahahahaha.”
The garden was filled with the sound of the boy’s laughter as he laid on his brother’s shoulders, he was finally unable to resist conceding defeat.
“I was wrong, I want brother, I like brother the most.”
“How much do you like me” The brother took him in his arms.
“The world’s number one favorite.”
Brother still didn’t let him go and pulled him again, “Do you like daddy or brother more”
Looking at the hand that hadn’t let go of him, the boy didn’t hesitate, “I like brother the most.”
The older brother let go of him with satisfaction, and the boy ran away in a flash.
He stood a few meters away and shouted at his brother.
“I lied to you, I like dad and mom the most.”
After saying that he also made a face at his brother, then before reaching a few steps he was picked up by his brother, “Little bad egg, still running or not”
The warm sun didn’t last long, Lu Wenxing was suddenly awake, his head was still a little dizzy, but he was conscious.
The couple in the morning was wrong, they got it wrong, he didn’t have a younger brother.
He had an older brother.
