Transmigrated as the Tortured Female Lead's Daughter - Chapter 20
It was Saturday, and there was no one in the kindergarten.
At first glance, it looked like a grave. There was no sign of the lively spirit of a kindergarten.
Gu Manxi still had lingering fear in her heart. She felt that this was not just a simple kindergarten. The kindergarten was clearly full of problems, but it was still here. Perhaps there was an unshakable force behind it.
Gu Manxi did not stay any longer. She secretly took a few photos and sent them to Zhao Yan. Zhao Yan had established his roots in the capital. He should be able to investigate some things.
Gu Manxi returned the way she came. At the intersection not far from Zhao Yan’s apartment, she was stopped by a car. The car window opened. Tang Chunxiu’s charming face was revealed. She gently called out to her, “Manxi, I was still planning to look for you. I didn’t expect to meet you at the intersection. Where did you go?”
“I went to the hospital to get some medicine. Chuchu’s injury hasn’t recovered yet.” Gu Manxi didn’t really want to chat with Tang Chunxiu. She recalled Zhao Yan’s advice to stay away from the Zhao family as long as she could.
Tang Chunxiu opened the car door and still had a kind look on her face. She gently held Gu Manxi’s hand and tears instantly welled up in her eyes. Her voice was choked with sobs. “It’s all Mom’s fault for accidentally injuring Chuchu. Manxi, don’t blame Mom… I-I… I just want to make it up to you.”
Gu Manxi’s expression was not very natural.
She wanted to question about the kindergarten, but she really could not bring herself to say it.
Tang Chunxiu continued, “The relatives of the family know that you’re back, and they’re extremely happy. Do you still remember your second uncle? When you were young, he doted on you the most. When he found out that you’re back, he was so excited that he shed tears. He said that our ancestors have blessed our Zhao family.”
“Tonight, your second uncle and the others are all here. You should at least meet them. Manxi, you are my daughter and I love you so much. Don’t tell me you still doubt your mother?”
Gu Manxi’s expression showed that she was moved. She was half-persuaded by Tang Chunxiu and half-dragged into the car.
The green light at the intersection turned red.
In an instant, the traffic was heavy.
Gu Chu rarely had the time to be alone. She hid in her room and played on her computer.
Her fair fingers tapped on the keyboard. Lines of code appeared like flowing water, and firewalls were broken one by one. Gu Chu sat up straight. She no longer had the naivety and innocence of a five-year-old child.
She was a king born silently in the darkness.
No one noticed.
Time flowed unconsciously. When the sunlight that spilt into the window was dyed golden, Gu Chu realized that it was already dusk.
Gu Chu twisted her neck, stretched her muscles, and walked out of the room. “Mommy, I’m hungry. I want to eat custard buns.” Gu Manxi had personally gone to the suburbs to look for that kindergarten. At this time, she should have already come home.
However, no one responded.
The apartment was empty, and only Gu Chu’s clear voice echoed. Gu Chu stopped in place for two seconds. Her expression suddenly changed, and she quickly took out her phone to call Gu Manxi.
Beep, beep, beep… Her phone was turned off.
Gu Chu slapped her forehead, she was speechless!
What should I do when my mom’s too stupid for her own good? Please give me a solution!
According to the plot of the original novel, Gu Manxi was probably going to be deceived by the Zhao family and given to that greasy Director Li!
I thought that my mom would at least be on guard!
Gu Chu hurriedly called Zhao Yan. Zhao Yan picked up the phone after 30 seconds. “Chu Chu, Uncle is still in a meeting-”
“Uncle! Mommy is gone!! Wahhh!!” Gu Chu didn’t care whether he was in a meeting or not. She started to cry without saying a word.
Her face was full of tears, and she was going crazy!
If I wasn’t a five-year-old child, I would have done everything to save her!
Why did I have to be a five-year-old child?! Other than crying and acting cute, I can’t do anything else!
