Fu Man’s expression warmed up as she looked at Lu Xinnuan, her younger daughter. With a gentle smile, she took the latter’s heavy school bag from her.
“My precious daughter is back.”
“Mom!” Lu Xinnuan smiled sweetly.
“Are you hungry? We can eat in a bit! I made the dishes that you love!”
Fu Man’s face was brimming with smiles.
She gave birth to a pair of twins, the elder daughter Lu Mian and the younger daughter Lu Xinnuan.
But not only did the two children look different, their personalities were worlds apart too.
Lu Mian had always been an unorthodox child. She was disobedient, acted strangely, and lied all the time.
Nuannuan was better. She was sweet, obedient, hardworking and understanding. She was every parent’s dream.
Sometimes she wondered how her pair of twins could be so different.
Fu Man sighed, taking her mind off the unhappy things, and her gaze landed on Lu Xinnuan’s hands.
“Nuannuan, what do you have?”
“This…” Lu Xinnuan smiled shyly. She looked like your girl next door, and her eyes turned into crescent moons when she smiled.
“I took part in the drawing competition last semester. They sent the certificate today.”
“Certificate? Let mommy have a look.”
Fu Man opened the envelope expectantly. The red first place certificate of the competition was eye-catching.
Lu Xinnuan knew the result beforehand, so she was not surprised to see the certificate.
“Nuannuan is such a good girl! Other people are focused on studying in their final year of high school, but you’re not just a top student, you got the first prize too! You make me so proud! But don’t overlook your school work either!”
“Don’t worry mom, I know! But the drawing teacher intends to send my work to a company to be turned into game characters, so I might have to spend some time making some changes…”
“Really? That famous, internationally-acclaimed, award-winning gaming company? Nuannuan this could be your chance! Mommy believes that you will be chosen. Our family’s counting on you!”
Fu Man scrutinized the certificate, feeling very happy.
Their family was unlike her brother-in-law’s. Even though they were family, their lives were worlds apart.
Her brother-in-law’s family stayed in the main building, surrounded by servants and in control of the Lu Family finances. Their family was in the annex, isolated and in debt.
The only thing she had left to boast about was her daughter, Lu Xinnuan.
“Mom, where’s my sis? Is she back yet?”
“Upstairs.” Fu Man motioned with her mouth.
“How is she today?”
“Still the same. She doesn’t go to school, nor does she work. I have no idea what she’s busy with.”
“… I’ll go upstairs and talk to her.”
Lu Xinnuan took a few steps forward, before walking backwards.
“Mom, I think we better keep the certificate from sister. I don’t want her to recall unhappy memories. I still remember that she ruined my color pencils when we were young. I have not seen her draw since then.”
Fu Man paused, recalling the incident and nodded hurriedly.
Lu Mian had never been nice to get along with.
She bullied her sister as a child, willfully breaking her water color pencils. She even refused to admit it.
Fu Man felt chills run down her spine when she thought of young Lu Mian’s cold eyes.
That child could not be counted on…
