Chapter 09

That Night, after dinner, Ji Huan told Grandpa everything that had happened.

"Xiao Hua, what are you thinking?" Grandson did not say anything, the old man quickly asked.

During childhood, Ji Huan was a particularly boring child, not much expression, but his heart was particularly stubborn, the elder hastily reminded him: "Your sister did not want revenge, the bad guys are dead already."

Ji Huan still silent.

Yes, the bad guys are dead, and the people directly involved in the matter were all killed in the morgue. The people indirectly involved were all arrested by the police, they were waiting for long-term, but they'd rather die than live in prison.

He'd always reported everything to his sister. Even as children.

Black was always very neat, graceful attitude, had grudges against revenge, "bully my sister, brother waving sticks will rush to avenge" this has always been someone else's thing, he never had to worry about black.

Even after death, you don't have to worry about her.

"Who says there's no Black's Things? Next, you take good care of Black's baby, for your sister, raise him well, I don't know how many years I have left, after, the child's wellfare would rest entirely on you ...... "even if the eyes can not see, Grandfather was always the best at understanding Ji Huan and hugged him.

"Ah." Ji Huan muffled, agreed.

"Grandfather longevity, we'll watch the child grow up together." He said, still muffled.

At last--

"Grandpa, I still want to go to college." He raised his head again.

"No, your going to work. How often do you whine your not going to study, wasting the brains you inherited from grandpa. To make you and Black wiser, even in winter grandpa went to the river to fish, are you worthy to eat those fish? "Not wasting time, Grandfather began settling old accounts.

Bantering for a long time, in Ji Huan arms "little baby's" two white rings had been bouncing back and forth between the two faces. They bickered until a truce was made.

Rising from the table Grandfather turned and walked back, although the eyes can not see, but after all, he lived here for decades in this old house, his heart is very clear where everything was. What Grandfather wanted to find was just behind the niches. The niche above was for ancestral worship, below is a chest of drawers. The old man touched the cabinet, and then slowly crouching down, opened the bottom of a drawer, fumbling around for a long time, he finally pulled out a handkerchief. He slowly stood up and gave the bundle to Ji Huan.

"I know it's not because you don't love studying, but was worried about money at home, right?" Grandpa looked at him, eyes somewhat out of focus, but the eyes are misty: "As a boy, Xiao Hua often told grandpa when he grew up he would get into Tsinghua University! "

"Grandfather was taught by Xiao Hua, so will not easily give up on their ideal child." Eyes full of nostalgia and encouragement.

Ji Huan was shocked.

Then he opened the thick handkerchief package. Wrapped inside was something Ji Huan was rarely allowed to see: There was a pendant, given to Grandma; a pen, his dad had left; a ring, this belonged to mother; and two molars, from Ji Huan and sister.

These are grandfather's "treasures."

Among these treasures, hidden below, is a book, a little old, it was grandfather's pension money which he spent a lifetime saving← Of course, this second statement was true only in Ji Huan's eyes. Grandfather saved the money to pay for Ji Huan university tuition fees, and if possible, he would like Ji Huan to continue studying for his masters, doctoral ......

"Look below the passbook." Suggested the old man.

Ji Huan shook his head, removed the book, which in the past, didn't have anything underneath, but now it had more than three ......

"???" Ji Huan was surprised.

"Ah" Opposite, the old nodded: "your sister sent over those and the photo together, I want to give them to you, these are for the next four years of tuition, according to her, she said ...... Tsinghua standard fees she had prepared for you ...... "

"Another was sent by the two people who brought your sister back, they said it was ...... hospital compensation ...... lastly, they also brought back the last of Black's belongings, it's not much money, but they still showed me. "

His sister had to send money home, and gave him a tuition fund, where would she have any money left?

He looked at three thin cards, at grandfather, Ji Huan couldn't bear it.

Drops of hot tears fell from his eyes, smashing the baby in his arms on the left side of his white ring, baby's eyes blinked, continued peering at him.

Ji Huan then also looked down at him.

"I ...... will take the Examination to Tsinghua University, I will raise sister's baby." No matter how strange this child, regardless of the future, things that will happen, therefore, Ji Huan made his vows.

Hearing him make the promise, grandfather gave a happy smile, in Ji Huan's arms the strange baby looked at grandfather smiling, after a long while, the Mist-like face suddenly broadened into a third organ. Two huge white circles for eyes, from his point of point of view Ji Huan can clearly see within the gaping maw was as scarlet as fresh blood.

A serious look at the baby's mouth in the blanket, Ji Huan suddenly cried: "Grandpa, this child is laughing."

Then, looking at grandfather, Ji Huan laughed.

A little sad, a little comfort, a little firmly ...... Ji Huan laughed.
