For some reason, the gatekeeper walking next to Shen Chi suddenly felt a little cold.
He wrapped his coat and muttered, “This damn weather, looks like it’s going to snow again.”
Shen Chi looked up at the sky.
Yes, today at noon, there would be a heavy snowfall which was the same everywhere.
The gatekeeper guided Shen Chi to the meeting room.
Shen Chi looked around, this dark and narrow place, no wonder it would cultivate a character like Liu Mu.
Seeing Aunt filling the boiling water in the next room, the gatekeeper uncle quickly called out, “Hey, Aunt Li, this young man is looking for the director!”
As soon as Aunt Li looked up, she met a pair of icy cold eyes, so cold that she wanted to shiver.
But she still habitually glanced at Shen Chi’s dress.
When Shen Chi broke into the clothing store, although it was not a famous store, it was still a middle-class brand, not to mention his appearance.
Even wearing stall goods seemed to be extraordinary on him, especially those fair and slender hands.
At one glance you could see that he was used to being pampered.
Aunt Li said with a smile, “The Director doesn’t come to work until nine o’clock.
If you don’t mind, can you wait here first? Ayi, it’s cold.
I’ll go and make you a cup of tea first! “
Shen Chi looked at his watch.
It was almost seven o’clock now, there were still two hours left.
He frowned and decided not to wait any longer.
He hurriedly called out to Aunt Li, who was about to pour water, “Aunt Li, the director won’t be here for another two hours, so can you let me see him first–”
The gatekeeper uncle who was watching over there had already consciously told Aunt Li about the situation.
Aunt Li looked at Shen Chi and nodded.
“I wonder what age that child should be this year, and whether there are any birthmarks or anything like that on him? There are several children who have been taken away in the past two years and I don’t know if they are still around,” said Aunt Li.
Shen Chi smiled shyly, “There is a light green birthmark in the shape of a leaf on his arm.”
Aunt Li was stunned, “How could it be him?”
“Is he really here?” Shen Chi had just the right amount of surprise and eagerness on his face, “Can I meet him?”
Aunt Li hesitantly glanced at Shen Chi, “–but, that child is already seven years old, ah?” This young man looks so young and is only in his early twenties, how can he have a child that old?”
Shen Chi hastily nodded, “Yes, it’s been seven years! I was only fifteen or sixteen at that time ……”
Aunt Li was a little convinced.
She nodded and said, “The child is still here, but -“
“It’s no trouble to see him, I’ll go get him right now, but the boy has not been very good-tempered since he was a child.”
“It’s okay,” said Shen Chi sincerely, “originally, it was me who wronged him.”
Aunt Li thought to herself, Liu Mu, that boy what a lucky break, his biological father actually came to the door to find him! However, it’s good if this kid was adopted, to know that the more children grow up the more they eat, Liu Mu had a bad temper and was not an obedient child, the director was eager to get rid of him! People who came to adopt children, the children above the age of five were not so likeable, the younger the child the easier it is to raise them as a relative, the seven years old children began to remember things, they may not be able to keep them close.
It didn’t take long for Aunt Li to return to the meeting room with a skinny boy in tow.
In his previous life, when Shen Chi first met Liu Mu, he was already seventeen years old.
Although still a young and tender green onion, but the end of the world was an era that would make people mature quickly.
As a high-level ability user, if you ignore his temper, just looking at his appearance, only a few people could be compared to him.
During the apocalypse, the appearance was not a priority, but growing up like Liu Mu, crowned with a demon name was not excessive.
But at this time, Liu Mu was still just a yellow-faced little boy.
He was as thin as the paper man, and it seemed like the clothes were empty ****, He was clearly seven years old.
But he was much thinner than an ordinary seven-year-old child.
Instead, he looked like a five or six-year-old child.
A head of black long and some messy hair strands, and long bangs almost covered half of his face, even the eyes could not be seen clearly, Perhaps because he was too thin, his chin was somewhat sharp.
With only one glance, Shen Chi confirmed that the boy was Liu Mu.
Because the slight sneer on the corner of his lips was exactly the same as when he grew up.
Although he was only a seven-year-old kid at that time, but if he was as naïve and ignorant as other children, how could he have survived the end of the world alone?
Aunt Li saw Liu Mu standing still and pulled him, “Liu Mu, don’t talk yet, this is your father!” while pointing at Shen Chi.
Her tone was a little fierce.
She was afraid that Shen Chi would change his mind and would not want Liu Mu.
Then, their orphanage would still have to provide a meal for him.
Shen Chi saw Liu Mu looking up and staring at himself.
His dark eyes were now extremely bright, but he still did not speak.
“Ah-Mu, right?” Shen Chi tried to make his smile look friendly, but even he, himself, felt that his expression at that time was probably very odd.
Liu Mu still did not speak, so Aunt Li explained somewhat awkwardly, “This child, from childhood, does not like to talk ……” and gloomy, looking a little oozing.
As she said this, Liu Mu suddenly smiled; this smile could be described as very “innocent and cute, pure and lovely”, and obediently called “Dad.”
Shen Chi felt a little itch in his throat, cleared his throat and said, “Can you leave me alone with him for a while?”
Aunt Li nodded and hurriedly said, “Of course, you can talk to him, this child is a very good and obedient child in essence, except that he does not like to talk!” She tried hard to sell Liu Mu out.
In a flash, she forgot that she had previously said the boy had a bad temper.
“I mean, can I take him out for a walk?” Shen Chi said, “Don’t worry, I will send him back before noon, even if I want to adopt him back, I always have to come back to do the formalities……”
Aunt Li frowned and hesitantly said, “This ……”
Shen Chi remained silent and stuffed all dozen or so red banknotes from the market and the small clothing store into Aunt Li’s hands.
Aunt Li looked around sneakily, quickly put all the money into her pocket, and firmly said, “Go ahead! Just send him back before five o’clock this afternoon, I will help you talk to the director!”
Shen Chi smiled and successfully held Liu Mu’s hand as he walked out.
“Ah, wait a minute.” Shen Chi’s footsteps stopped, Liu Mu’s grip on his hand suddenly tightened.
Shen Chi suddenly felt some heartache and sighed.
He just pulled out a down jacket from the backpack and put it on the thin Liu Mu.
Obviously, Shen Chi took the smallest set of clothes, but because he was too thin, he wore it all empty.
“Don’t be afraid, I won’t leave you.” Shen Chi looked into Liu Mu’s eyes and seriously said, “From today on, I will never leave you.”
Liu Mu fixedly looked at him for a long time before speaking, “Really?” with his tender voice.
Looking at the doubt in his eyes, Shen Chi nodded, “From today on, you will be called Shen Liu Mu, my son, Shen Liu Mu.”
In his previous life, the only one who did not abandon him was the person in front of him, so in this life, he would not abandon him, no matter what, he would protect him well, except for the one in front of him, Shen Chi can no longer trust anyone.
This person was the only one who had tried his best to save himself for his sake.
In this life, he was willing to rely on him for life.
The same day, Shen Chi took Shen Liu Mu on a direct flight to Shanghai.
Almost unknowingly, Shen Chi stole the boarding pass from a pair of father and son around him.
Shen Liu Mu widened his eyes.
After seeing that Shen Chi stole the boarding pass, how elegantly and calmly he led his hand to the plane, while that father inexplicably touched all the pockets of his body.
He only thought that he had lost the boarding pass and went back to look for it.
At that time, Shen Chi had already boarded the plane with Shen Liu Mu.
As long as you stayed in the apocalypse for a few years, there was no sense of guilt in doing this kind of thing.
In fact, Shen Chi also felt relieved that in the waiting room there was only this pair of father and son.
Since their tickets were to Shanghai, he had no choice but to go there.
He just knew that it was better to be further away from Beijing at times like this.
