To make He Yu regret - chapter 34
“Well, what should I say about this.” Grandma thought about words that she could understand.
“For example, a princess is born with good health, beauty and family harmony. We can say that she has good cards. At the beginning of her life, she has quite good conditions. These conditions can help her in the future to realise her ideals easily and to live a happy life.”
“As for He Yu, when he was a child, the cards in his hand were not good, which means he had bad conditions. His father died because of an accident in the construction site, and his mother was a nanny. They were from the countryside and their family was poor. He and his mother went back to the countryside because they wanted to recover the compensation for work-related injuries. This time his mother’s job of the nanny was gone.”
Niuniu understood that explanation. But she was shocked, “He Yu didn’t come back for several years? Didn’t he say that he was going to come back in a month or two at most?”
“That is not something he and his mother could control. What they thought was to go back to get the compensation, and then continue to work at Jiang’s house. But actually asking for that money was not that simple. The construction site where He Yu’s father worked had owed money to many workers who needed compensation. They weren’t the only family. In order to get the money, He Yu’s mother, the workers and relatives had to go to the boss’s house of the construction site, and made trouble for months, but didn’t get a penny. One year later, the construction was unfinished, and the boss ran away. They had to go through judicial procedures, look for a lawyer, go to court, show a certificate, sue the boss… Rights protection is a very long process which requires a huge amount of mental and financial resources.”
Grandma touched Niuniu’s head, “Are you bored?”
Indeed, these words made Niuniu sleepy. All she heard was, It was difficult for He Yu to get money, and the boss of the site was a bad guy.
“After all, because of family affairs, He Yu didn’t go to school in the first few years of elementary school and stayed in the village. Then why did I say that his cards were getting better… Later, He Yu studied by himself for a period of time and relied on his own ingenuity to jump directly to the fourth standard. Soon after, they won the lawsuit, and got the compensation of his father’s work injury death. At that time, He Yu’s relatives were in the clothing business, He Yu’s family became shareholders. They put the money in and made a small profit. Then, his mother rented a store in the village and opened a clothing store…”
Niuniu was more comfortable when her grandma slowly told her the plot of the story before. The rhythm of the story was too fast. Her little head couldn’t keep up. It was a mess. Grandma’s voice was like the spoon stirring the paste. Sometimes she heard a little bit and became more conscious, but soon the paste came over and her consciousness sank again. She yawned, and there was the wind brought by the cool fan beside her. She slowly sank into sleep as grandma also laid down. There was a breeze, and her grandma’s voice was low and she accompanied Niuniu to sleep.
“He Yu went to junior high school, and the teacher discovered his ability to draw and recommended his drawings to participate in a competition. The kid won the award in one fell swoop and was interviewed by the TV station at the awards ceremony. By the time he was in high school, he was both excellent in character and studies. There was no shortage of money at his home, and some people even wanted to sponsor him to organize an exhibition. He was smart and clever when he was a child, and as he grew up, his luck got better. He was that kind, if anyone goes to buy drinks with him, he will definitely get one more bottle to thank people.”
Niuniu fell asleep. Grandma looked behind her quietly, and the old man fell asleep.
“It was so exaggerated. When he walks on the road, he can easily find money. He…” Closing her eyes, grandma spoke vaguely, not knowing which sentence she said, and then there was no voice. It was a sleepy afternoon. The trees outside the window shielded the sunlight, even the wind didn’t disturb them. There was a slight snoring sound beside her. Niuniu opened her eyes in a daze, she felt a cool breeze on her face. Grandma was asleep, with her hand on her belly. The one who was fanning was grandpa. He moved his body up a bit, leaned on the bed, and fanned her and grandma in a posture that seemed unstable. Niuniu opened her mouth and tried to wake her grandma. Grandpa pursed his lips and shook his head at her. The only movable hand held the fan. He moved it to his mouth and made a gesture telling her to stay silent. Grandma slept soundly. Probably he didn’t want to wake her up. He waved Niuniu to lie down. Niuniu fell back silently, nestled next to her grandma, enjoying the wind grandpa fanned. Everyone in their family snores. Niuniu inherited it from her mother, and her mother said she inherited it from grandma. Grandma’s snoring voice was different from her normal voice. Grandma’s Mandarin voice was of a patient and kind elder. And the snoring grandma voice was like a stupid pig.
