Chapter 73 – Da Hai persuaded Yin Zi
Evening after Bai Luo Yin and Gu Hai went back home after school, Bai Han Qi prepared a large table full of dish.
Bai Luo Yin walked around the table, then went in front of Bai Han Qi and asked: “Did something good happened today? Has Aunt Zhou left the hospital already? She hasn’t, right? I remember the what the doctor said for two weeks!”
Bai Han Qi’s face was glowing with happiness, he especially changed his clothes, standing there with an impressive bearing, the question that Bai Luo Yin asked, he deliberately didn’t give an answer, every step he took, his leather shoes on the ground produced a tapping sound, vividly portraying the idiom ‘deliberately putting on a special accent’ in great detail.
“Dad, why are you drunk even before drinking?”
“Hahaha…….” Bai Han Qi laughed loudly, with his beard shaved off, his face vividly showed his graceful bearing from the time when he was young, “Your dad just got a job promotion!
“Job promotion?” Bai Luo Yin gave a suspicious looks, “That lousy factory still has a different kinds of position?”
“It’s not that factory, another company was looking for me, they let me work there as an engineer.”
Bai Luo Yin’s facial expression changed, his tone was somewhat hesitating, “Dad, it can’t be that you’ve been conned by them, right?”
“What are you talking about?” Bai Han Qi gave a straight face, “I’ve signed the contract, the salary is good! The other party was afraid that I wouldn’t believe it, they gave me 5000 yuan as a sign of sincerity! One of these days if you have time, I’ll bring you to take a look at my new workshop to make sure, you will be startled for sure!”
After he finished talking, Bai Han Qi turned around, then he hummed while cutting pig’s ear stewed in a soy sauce.
Bai Luo Yin was dumbfounded for a while, then he walked outside with large strides.
“Gu Hai, you come here!”
Gu Hai was washing his hands in the yard, he saw Bai Luo Yin came out from the kitchen while fuming with anger, went straight to his bedroom.
“What’s going on?” Gu Hai used towel to wipe his hands.
Bai Luo Yin calmly asked with interrogation tone, “About my dad’s matter, was it your doing too?”
Gu Hai deliberately pretended not to know anything, “Which one?”
“Don’t play dumb with me, who let you to do something on your own and transferred my dad to another department? What’s your intention? Do you want to provide relief to our family? Or is it because of the phone we bought for you, and you felt like you must do something so you will feel comfortable?”
“Bai Luo Yin, I don’t like hearing you say these kind of things. What do you mean with providing relief?What’s wrong with your family? Providing relief from what? Everyday I saw uncle worked himself until exhaustion to support this family, and my heart couldn’t bear it. He is your father, are you going to let him suffer a living hell every single day in that lousy factory just because of your ego?”
Bai Luo Yin’s face expression was still cold as before, “My family’s affairs are none of your business.”
“Say it one more time!” Gu Hai’s tone became heavier.
“No matter how many times, My answer will still be the same, we will worry about our family’s matter on our own!”
“You….” Gu Hai clenched his teeth, he was looking for something everywhere, finally he found a small knotted broom to sweep bed, pointed it at Bai Luo Yin and said, “Dont you believe that I will hit you?”
Bai Luo Yin casted an angry look at Gu Hai, without saying anything, his eyes were full of provocation, try to lay a finger on me!
As for Gu Hai, this isn’t a matter of daring or not daring, rather a matter of willing or not willing.
Both of them refused to budge for a while, then Gu Hai suddenly dropped the broom near his own legs, he sighed. He walked towards Bai Luo Yin, then persuaded him softly, “I know that I should’ve discussed this matter with you before, but I was afraid that with your stubborn temperament, you would immediately strangle me the moment I open my mouth. Yin Zi, I really didn’t have any other intention, I transferred uncle to a normal department, he won’t be reading newspaper and drinking tea all day, that also depends on his real skill and abilities to survive, I just thought that uncle is a capable person, otherwise how can he grew such a bright and intelligent son like you? I just want to give uncle a good opportunity, so he could regain all the wasted efforts of the first half of his life, and later he would still be able to stand upright and healthy in front of Aunt Zhou, right?”
Even if Bai Luo Yin didn’t speak anything, but it could be seen from his eyes, that his heart was definitely confused. On one side, he loves Bai Han Qi so much. He really love Bai Han Qi dearly, he really cherished the happiness on Bai Han Qi’s face earlier; on the other side, he felt really uneasy like this. Why is Gu Hai the one who build his dad’s spring time? He hasn’t devote himself enough to his dad yet!
Gu Hai stroked Bai Luo Yin’s hair with his hand, patiently soothed him, “You see the last time I helped aunt Zhou, you didn’t say anything? When it comes to your father why can’t you just let it go?”
Bai Luo Yin’s speaking tone was stiff, “The condition is different.”
“How can it be different?”
Bai Luo Yin was unable to answer why, he just felt uncomfortable in his heart.
“Now in this kind of society, don’t you have to rely on connections to survive? You have good connections by your side that you can utilize well, it’s a wonderful thing, why are you so stubborn?”
“It’s not that i’m being stubborn…” Bai Luo Yin looked really awkward, “I also have a lot of friends, if my family had problems, I often ask them to help me too, but when it comes to you, why is it so different?”
Right! Why is it so different?
There was an ambiguous answer in Gu Hai’s heart, this answer, made him felt somewhat excited.
“Yin Zi…!!!” Grandma Bai’s loud and clear shout can be heard from the outside.
Bai Luo Yin glanced at Gu Hai, uncomfortably said one sentence, “Let’s leave it at this for now.”
After he said that, he lifted the door curtain up, and went out.
