Zhao Sijia called Lou Xiao’s phone, but it rang for a long time and no one answered. When she was about to give up, the phone finally got through and she heard Lou Xiao’s cold voice.
“Miss Zhao? What’s the matter?”
Zhao Sijia had long been used to him saying her name because he had helped her a lot, so she didn’t take it seriously, and only regarded it as Lou Xiao’s preference. Feeling wronged, she whispered to Lou Xiao about what had happened.
Lou Xiao had just finished a meeting and walked into his office. He frowned when he heard her disappointed tone. He pushed the speaker button and put it down on the desktop, then turned on his computer and started working.
The secretary behind him didn’t move her eyebrows at all because she was used to doing things quietly. She placed the documents she was holding in her arms on Lou Xiao’s right side one by one, made him a cup of coffee, and then silently walked out.
At first, she thought that the boss liked Zhao Sijia, but after half a year, the boss was still as before. There was no sign of fascination, and he was still as indifferent to everyone like an asexual. She didn’t know why the boss was willing to take care of Zhao Sijia, but Zhao Sijia couldn’t be her boss’s wife anyway.
Zhao Sijia spoke for a long time, but didn’t hear a response and didn’t care, and asked, “Brother Lou Xiao, do you think I need to go to the hospital to see Huo Wei?”
“No.” Lou Xiao replied concisely and forcefully. Huo Wei had already indicated that she didn’t want to see her. She would only cause trouble for others if she went to the hospital, and she would not be happy, so there was no need to go.
Zhao Sijia felt that Huo Ming wanted her to go to the hospital and wanted her to apologize. After all, they left Huo Wei behind. But she felt that she was right and didn’t want to go. Now that Lou Xiao said so simply that she didn’t need to go, she finally felt better.
She said again: “Huo Wei is admitted to the hospital. Mother Huo will definitely come over and she will definitely scold me. I don’t know how Huo Wei will make trouble this time. I really can’t stand her anymore. I never provoked her. Her character is too bad.”
Lou Xiao stared at the financial statements on the screen, quickly scrolling through them, and said as usual: “Move out if you are unhappy at the Huo’s house.”
Zhao Sijia laughed. When she first heard Lou Xiao say this, she was still very uncomfortable. She lived in the Huo family and was taken care of by the Huo family. She had such a good life. Should she move out to live the same life as before? This seemed ironic to her.
But when she asked Lou Xiao angrily where she would move to, Lou Xiao said that she could help her buy the house where she and her mother had lived for more than ten years. After she was shocked, she felt that Lou Xiao had given her a way out, telling her that whenever she left the Huo’s house, she could ask him for help.
So now she felt at ease when she heard these words. After six months of getting along, she already trusted Lou Xiao very much. If Huo Wei was a nuisance, she would move out. She had to make it clear to Huo Ming that they have known each other for a year, and she needed to know if he wanted to be with her or just play with her. She was definitely not only the Huo family’s choice.
Lou Xiao was her confidant. They knew each other since childhood, and he was so kind to her. She didn’t need to be wronged in the Huo family. If it hadn’t been for her and Lou Xiao to recognize each other in the past six months, she would never have entered the Huo’s company.
Thinking about it this way, Zhao Sijia felt more comfortable. She glanced at the time and realized that it was too late. She embarrassedly said, “Lou Xiao, did I disturb your rest? I won’t bother you anymore. You should go to bed.”
“Right.” Lou Xiao raised his hand and hung up the phone, still staring at the screen, working intently.
Zhao Sijia sent a “good night” WeChat message to Lou Xiao. She scrolled up and saw their extremely streamlined chat history. She was talking, and Lou Xiao never responded. He didn’t seem to like to use WeChat. He usually spent most of his time in meetings and at work. Occasionally, when he used WeChat, he would call her and ask if she needed help.
When talking on the phone, he always spoke very concisely, which made her very uncomfortable at first. She always felt that Lou Xiao was too cold, difficult to approach, and very difficult to get along with. It was not the same as when he was a child.
But when she encountered a problem she didn’t understand at work, she didn’t want Huo Ming to think she was stupid, so she tried to ask Lou Xiao, and Lou Xiao asked a special assistant to answer her. There were other things Lou Xiao helped her with. Only then did she know that Lou Xiao, her childhood friend, was very reliable and valued her very much, but he had a cold personality and looked like that to everyone.
So even if the phone call didn’t have the warm comfort she wanted, she still felt better. It was no big deal. If the Huo family angered her, she would leave the Huo family to find Lou Xiao, just to make Huo Ming calm and figure out his feelings about her.
Zhao Sijia didn’t contact Huo Ming, and Huo Ming didn’t think of contacting her, because the mother of the Huo family Cui Jing came.
Huo Ming received a call from Cui Jing outside the hospital and was scolded by Cui Jing. If it was normal, he would reason with his mother, but this time the police never let him go. He always felt that he was at a loss. He would let Cui Jing scold him.
This was the first time he had been scolded like this as an adult, and he felt very bad.
Cui Jing rushed to the hospital and saw him but didn’t give him a good face. She walked inside and reprimanded him, “Did Zhao Sijia put a spell on you? You left your sister in the deep mountain forest alone with her? I think you are crazy! You’re no different from those romantics on TV!”
Huo Ming’s face was ugly, and he whispered: “I don’t have that kind of relationship with Sijia. This isn’t about her. I didn’t see that Huo Wei was injured at the time. I thought she was bullying her for no reason, so I wanted to teach her a lesson.”
Cui Jing suddenly stopped and turned to stare at him, “Huo Ming, I am Weiwei’s mother. No matter how old Weiwei is, I should be the one teaching her. It’s not your turn. How many times have you had conflicts with Weiwei in the past years? Which time was not because of Zhao Sijia? What is so good about her that it is worthy of alienating yourself from your sister?”
As she said this, she looked around and frowned tightly, “Where is Zhao Sijia? She hurt Weiwei and won’t even show up? Where did she hide?”
Huo Ming said with a solemn face: “Mom, I said it has nothing to do with Sijia. I let her stay in the hotel to rest. She was very tired today and was pushed down by Huo Wei. I blame Huo Wei for everything…”
Cui Jing sneered before he finished speaking, staring at him, and said: “‘Sijia’ this ‘Sijia’ that, it’s all about Zhao Sijia. I have already understood the situation with the police clearly. Zhao Sijia clearly saw Weiwei fall down. She didn’t ask her whether she was hurt or not. She didn’t want to mention anything to you. She just let you leave Weiwei behind, and then went to eat steak with you happily. It has nothing to do with her? Who is she better than!”
Huo Ming took a deep breath, “She was not happy. The restaurant was booked a long time ago, I made a reservation a month ago.”
This sentence added fuel to the fire. Cui Jing slapped him, and her face was full of anger, “She made a WeChat Moments post, and you two smiled like it was a date. You think I can’t see through you? You had the nerve to say it was booked a month ago, it was a romantic dinner for two, right? Weiwei came on the trip with you later. Did you ever think about changing the reservation to take Weiwei to eat with you? You originally planned to leave Weiwei so you and Zhao Sijia could go on a date!”
Huo Ming! Your sister was all alone, and there was no news when she didn’t go back to the hotel. You didn’t even call her a single call, let alone worry about her safety, so you could have a love affair with Zhao Sijia. You are arguing with me here, you just want to say that you are right, that you didn’t mean it? I think you should be the one who should have a clear mind. Get out of here! I cannot look at you anymore!”
Their movements have attracted the attention of many people. Cui Jing anxiously looked at Huo Wei’s situation, then ignored him after speaking, and walked quickly to the ward on high heels.
Huo Ming was slapped for the first time, and he watched Cui Jing walk away in amazement before reacting. The eyes of the surrounding medical staff and patients made him feel embarrassed. He also saw someone taking pictures of him with a mobile phone, and immediately turned around and left the hospital.
He waited outside the hospital because he felt guilty. He wanted to wait for his mother to come in and apologize to Huo Wei. This time he did make a mistake. Some classmates ridiculed him for his high IQ and low EQ. He didn’t take it seriously. This time it almost caused a catastrophe to realize that he did something wrong.
He stood by the car and smoked another cigarette, then sat in the car and waited. Suddenly he regretted going out to travel. He had finished so much work ahead of schedule before being free for three days, and it ended up like this. Maybe he shouldn’t agree to let Huo Wei and Zhao Sijia live together. Huo Wei never looked at Zhao Sijia. If they separated them, this wouldn’t happen.
Huo Ming was upset and sent a message to Cui Jing, telling her that he was waiting outside and to call him if she had anything to do, and then asked the assistant to send some documents to calm his mood with work.
Cui Jing completely ignored him. She found the ward and gently pushed the door open and walked to the bed. She looked at Huo Wei carefully, and when she saw Huo Wei’s slightly swollen arms and ankles, tears burst out of her eyes. This was the first time that her daughter, who was brought up with a lot of spoils and pets, encountered danger and it was her own son who actually harmed her.
If she saw Huo Wei’s appearance first and then saw Huo Ming, she would have slapped him twice to vent her anger. How did he become a brother who almost killed his sister like this? Did he still love his sister? For the sake of Zhao Sijia, did he even care about family affection?
She also thought of what Huo Tingwei had said to her before coming. He said there must be a misunderstanding about this matter. He said to clarify it before scolding Huo Ming and Zhao Sijia. She was a mother, what could you do with Huo Ming? Huo Tingwei’s words were clearly directed at Zhao Sijia, fearing that she would wrong Zhao Sijia.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
What was Zhao Sijia? She let the two men in the family stand on her side? Her daughter was lying on the hospital bed like this. The two men didn’t care about it. Their reputation, mistakes, women, misunderstandings, guilt, and so on were more important than Weiwei’s injury. She didn’t know where Weiwei was in their hearts.
At this moment, she was very annoyed by Zhao Sijia and regretted that she didn’t object to letting her live in the Huo house. If she resolutely objected, even if Huo Tingwei had to take care of the daughter of a close friend, it wouldn’t be what it is now.
She also complained about Huo Tingwei and Huo Ming. She didn’t find them so cold before. Now thinking about it, maybe they were busy with work every day and spend too little time with Huo Wei to take her seriously. Right?
Cui Jing took a photo of Huo Wei, sent it to Huo Tingwei in the hallway, and called him: “This time there must be a statement. I don’t care if you take care of your friend’s daughter, but you can’t harm my daughter. You don’t have to. Is the matter with me related to Zhao Sijia? If it were not for Zhao Sijia, would Weiwei be so unhappy? Without Zhao Sijia, would Ming have a conflict with Weiwei? They are obviously twins, but now they are also enemies. Is what you want to see as a father?
Zhao Sijia has to move out. She is in her twenties, and she is embarrassed because she was disturbed our family. I’m telling you this, but you can figure it out!”
After Cui Jing finished speaking, she hung up, without giving Huo Tingwei a chance to speak. She was so angry now that she had nowhere to vent her anger, and her heart was twitching when she saw her daughter so weak. She didn’t dare to touch Huo Wei, fearing that Huo Wei would be hurt, so she sat on the bedside and watched her all night.
Huo Wei reached stability before going to bed, and she slept very peacefully this time, and she felt much more comfortable when she woke up. She slowly opened her eyes and saw Cui Jing beside the bed still somewhat unresponsive.
Cui Jing was worried: “Weiwei, are you uncomfortable? I’ll call the doctor.”
Huo Wei woke up and pulled her back and said, “Mom, I’m fine. I don’t need to call the doctor. Someone will come to inspect the room later. Mom, did you sleep at all? Are you tired?”
Cui Jing saw that her daughter was lying on the hospital bed and did not forget to care about her. Her heart was sore, her eyes flushed, “I’m not tired. If you have something like this, I have to watch you so I’m not worried. Fortunately, you know how to save yourself, otherwise now I don’t know what would happen. I don’t know how Huo Ming could do this kind of thing. When you get better, I will help you teach him.
And that Zhao Sijia, this time I will definitely kick her out. If it weren’t for her, our family would be doing well, so why are there so many things?”
Huo Wei shook Cui Jing’s hand and said softly, “Mom, don’t express your attitude. If Huo Ming complains about you in the future, how uncomfortable will you be? Let dad handle it. I want to know how he will handle it. You can relax and let go of your anger because of them.”
As soon as Cui Jing heard that she didn’t care about Huo Ming’s title as “brother,” she knew that she was really angry this time. When she thought about it, she had to let Huo Tingwei deal with it without her.
Cui Jing felt distressed by her daughter’s sensitivity. She gently held Huo Wei’s hand and smiled in response, “Okay. I will listen to you, so you can’t get angry. Cooperate with the doctor to recover as soon as possible. Mom will make up the graduation trip. You can go wherever you want, okay?”
“Okay.” Huo Wei laughed, making Cui Jing calm down and at the same time feel distressed. How sensible was her daughter? She was considerate and didn’t want her to worry. Huo Tingwei and Huo Ming couldn’t see it. It didn’t mean that their daughter was spoiled and self-willed. They would regret it sooner or later.
Cui Jing was still very angry, but under Huo Wei’s comfort, it was much easier. She was persuaded by Huo Wei to go to the hotel, so the caregiver could not lose energy. It would be more appropriate to wash up and sleep for an hour or two before coming back.
Cui Jing didn’t tell Huo Ming. She didn’t want to see her son right now. She would have to scold him if she saw him. Huo Ming didn’t know that she was gone, and he was still waiting outside the hospital, always working in his car.
In fact, Huo Wei had deliberately sent Cui Jing away. She had just crossed over and wanted to spend some time alone to sort out the situation in front of her. Besides, she still wanted to suggest something to the people around her. If Cui Jing was there, many things were hard to say.
The doctor came to examine her, and the nurse came to deliver her meals and injections. Huo Wei asked if the person who rescued her had left contact information. Of course they would not leave it. It was their job to save people, and they did not ask for anything in return.
Huo Wei sighed and even complained to the nurse casually. She didn’t say much, but it was enough for them to make up for something.
Every graduation season and tourism season, you can always see news of people drowning, and they would warn everyone to pay attention to safety. This time Huo Wei burned smoke in the woods at the foot of the mountain to ask for help, and the police station also made a public announcement after finding out the situation. And this time it was not only to warn everyone to be careful but also to guide everyone to learn more about self-help knowledge.
The focus of the news was that by learning a wealth of first-aid knowledge and help-seeking knowledge, you can be rescued like Huo Wei in danger, and the chance of survival will be greatly increased.
The netizens found the news to be quite novel. Someone used a power bank, a data cable, and a cord in a mobile phone to make an igniter. The only tool was an eyebrow trimmer. This was too powerful!
And throwing shoes into the fire to burn out black smoke was also very witty. People who hadn’t paid attention to this knowledge really couldn’t think of it. Therefore, many netizens thought that she was very smart, and ordinary people didn’t often encounter this kind of thing.
Huo Wei’s mobile phone was broken. She didn’t know the news, but her caregiver saw it and told her. The nurse said that netizens praised her for being smart.
Huo Wei borrowed her mobile phone to look at it. The news had just come out, and there were not many people who saw it, so it was not too popular.
She was not in a hurry. Her identity was here, and soon it would blow up, and Huo Ming should feel uncomfortable at that time.
This was just a small gift she gave to Huo Ming. She didn’t care much. She lay on the bed and closed her eyes after reading the news, but in fact, she silently communicated with The System.
She used to have a headache and dizziness, which was too uncomfortable, and she felt a little dull in her brain. Now her fever was gone and she was no longer dizzy. Although the back of her head hurt a bit, it did not affect her thinking.
Compared with the day before, she felt like she had lifted the fog and saw the clear sky, so she felt a bit of a loss.
Just after crossing over, she was affected by the emotions of the original owner, unable to calm down. She had no memory of her own, which made her somewhat uneasy. It was just that she was forced to ask for help, and didn’t think too much, and was not in the mood to understand The System.
Now that she calmed down, she accepted the reality. Without any anxiety at all, she understood her current situation very clearly. There were good things in The System. She worked so hard on the task and didn’t dig out anything to reward herself, so she was sorry for the pain.
So she started to make sense with The System.
Since there is a reward for drawing cards every time you complete a task, there should be a novice reward for the first mission, right? Newly recruited users and new games are always given preferential treatment. I was so miserable as soon as I passed through, if I don’t deal with it properly, I am in danger of losing my life. This is not right.
—Host, your ability is very strong, you will not die.
—Not necessarily, what if I’m unlucky? Luck is something no one can control. Since you can’t help me, it means that you couldn’t guarantee my safety at that time. If I died in the woods and I can’t return to the main world without completing the task, then would I just completely die? System, this is unreasonable.
—Host, you have been successfully rescued now. This is a safe world, you can avoid such dangers in the future, no novice rewards are needed. After you successfully complete the mission in this world, you will be able to draw precious rewards.
—No, birth, old age, sickness, and death are beyond control. I believe that I have the ability to complete the task, but what if…I have a disease? If I don’t have time to complete the task, I can’t wait for the reward for completing the task, then I didn’t get any benefits, so I would do nothing for you?
—Host, I just serve you, assist you and accompany you. You are not working for me; you do tasks voluntarily.
—It’s all the same. I still have the risk of not reaping the benefits, so I’m asking for novice rewards. This is also my motivation for working hard, isn’t it? Otherwise, I actually rely on my current identity as Ms. Perfect to enjoy life. Isn’t it the same to be happy for a lifetime here and be happy for a lifetime in the main world? What are you working hard for if you are not good?
—Host, the main world is very important to you, and it cannot be replaced by any other world. However, the designers of The System anticipated this situation. If the host strongly requires novice rewards, the novice rewards will be unlocked.
However, if the host receives the novice reward, the task reward after this task is completed will not be so precious.
Huo Wei was very curious about how important the main world was to her but thought about her consent to seal the memory. It must be better for the task to not dig into the main world, so she did not ask questions, but cared about the rewards. I think novice rewards are just rewards for yourself.
Okay, the novice reward is one of three choices, please choose.
Huo Wei did not open her eyes, but still “saw” the three rewards displayed on the virtual panel.
The first was “carry the pot up the mountain,” where the strength will become very, very strong after selection; the second was “the country and the city,” where you will become very beautiful after selection; the third was “favorability value,” where you can know the value of other people’s opinion of yourself, and you can also know the value of other people’s opinion of others.
These three rewards were all one-off, that is, they can only be used in one world, and the function disappears when you change another world. However, they were also very useful. For different environmental needs, choosing different rewards can help a lot. For example, “climbing the pot up the mountain” was very useful in the end times or in the army, and it was also very useful in the harem and consort.
She thought for a while and chose the favorability value. In this way, she could know the changes in the feelings of people around her very straightforwardly. It would be much simpler and safer for her to do the task for the first time, so that she had enough time to adapt to life while doing the task and learn to observe the words and feelings. She would be able to learn if she compared it with a real favorability value.
Huo Wei received the favorability value reward and tried it. The favorability value ranged from -100 to 100. The caregiver’s favorability value for her was 10, and the nurse’s favorability value for her was 30. For strangers, this kind of favorability value was already very good.
The System also praised her.
Host, you adapted very well and got along with people around you naturally.
Huo Wei recalled how she had reacted very naturally since seeing people, and she was also a little surprised at her fitness. But this was a good thing, maybe this was one of the advantages of her being chosen as someone who travels through worlds?
She was in a very good mood and borrowed the mobile phone from the nurse. The news on the Internet should have settled, right? She saw how the netizens scolded Huo Ming, which made her happy.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
