Chapter 39 - Yang Xiaojin
Chapter 39: Yang Xiaojin
According to Luo Xinyus introduction to Xu Xianchu, Yang Xiaojin was a friend of hers, and she was only following them to Stronghold 112 for an excursion.
At that moment, Ren Xiaosu was tempted to say, "Like hell Id believe that!"
After the introductions finished up, everyone boarded their assigned vehicles. There were a total of 20 people going on this expedition, including Ren Xiaosu.
But when Ren Xiaosu was about to get into the vehicle, Liu Bu suddenly said, "Dont sit in the vehicle since youre so dirty. Go sit in the bed of the pickup."
Ren Xiaosu did not argue with him. After all, was it necessary to take it up with someone who was essentially dead?
Ren Xiaosu sat in the cargo bed of the pickup and listened to the loud droning of the vehicles engine as the town slowly disappeared from his view.
At the moment of departure, Ren Xiaosu still had some unwillingness in his heart. No matter how dirty and crappy this town was, he still called the place home all these years.
Just as Ren Xiaosu was getting a little emotional, he heard cheering erupt. "Ren Xiaosu is leaving at last!"
"Were free now!"
"Hahaha, our days of suffering are finally over!"
Ren Xiaosu turned around speechlessly and looked. He was surprised to see Li Youqian and Wang Dalong leading a group of students from the school in celebration as they high fived each other.
The other townspeople did not feel much. While Ren Xiaosu was the only doctor in town, it wouldnt really make a difference in their lives even after he left.
But it was different for the students. They knew that their lives would definitely get better after today!
In this moment, they forgot the fear of being dominated by Ren Xiaosu.
A middle-aged man dashed out of the crowd. It was Li Youqians father, Li Facai.
Li Facai dragged his strapping daughter back home. "Do you not want to live anymore?"
Li Youqian wondered, "What are you afraid of, Dad? Ren Xiaosu is already gone!"
Li Facai griped, "But hell be back!"
"What if he doesnt make it back?" Li Youqian argued, "Dont they all say its very dangerous in the wilderness?"
"What do you know?" Li Facais grip tightened even further as he squeezed her hand. "Even if all of the others perish, he would still make it back alive! And dont you be wishing death unto other people in the future, ya hear?"
By saying that Ren Xiaosu might not make it back, Li Youqian was implying that he would die in the wilderness.
In reality, the townspeople were numb to such life and death events. It was quite normal for them to experience death in their daily lives.
But if such a menacing seed of thought were planted in a child, no one would know what sort of fruit it would bear in the future.
Luo Xinyu and the others who were in the off-road vehicles also heard the cheering. They rolled down their windows and looked back to see what was going on. Although they did not know what hatred those people had for Ren Xiaosu, they knew that they were celebrating his departure from town.
Liu Bu was sitting in the front passenger seat and muttered, "How unpopular does he have to be for them to celebrate his departure...."
In the backseats, Luo Xinyu laughed and said, "When we get back, we should make a proper inquiry into this guy. I want to know exactly what hes done in this town."
"Why would you want to find out more about him, Xinyu?" Liu Bu scorned. "Hes just a punk kid from the hamlet. If we werent looking for a guide, would he have any chance of interacting with people like us? This is a blessing that he earned through his previous life, but he doesnt cherish it."
Only Yang Xiaojin remained silent as she sat in the vehicle. She seemed to be thinking about something.
At the school gate, Xiaoyu was holding onto the bars of the fence as she looked at the end of the road leading out of town. She watched Ren Xiaosu and those vehicles turn into tiny black dots in the distance.
She turned around and went into the backyard of the school to wet a towel with some water. Then she walked into the school and wiped Yan Liuyuans forehead with it. He had become unconscious after coming down with a sudden fever.
Mr. Zhang went to Old Wangs grocery store to buy some anti-fever medication while Xiaoyu stayed by Yan Liuyuans side to take care of him.
At this moment, Yan Liuyuan was groaning, and it seemed like he was having a bad dream. Xiaoyu gently put her hand on Yan Liuyuans forehead and whispered, "Dont worry, Liuyuan, hell definitely make it back."
