Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 118
Don’t Bully the Poor System (2)
It wasn’t like their family lacked money. If someone like that lost their child but didn’t look for her, then they probably didn’t want her in the first place.
Jiang Xiumei’s fist hardened as she thought about that.
On one hand, Xiaoman was her treasure, and she didn’t want anyone to come and steal her. On the other hand, if no one really came for her, she would become weirdly protective of Xiaoman. She felt that her family had no eyes and couldn’t recognize a treasure.
Their Xiaoman was so cute, but they didn’t want her!
After all, Jiang Xiumei had lived for a long time and seen all kinds of things. She had also suffered from her parents favoring the son. Maybe Xiaoman’s biological parents also did not want girls, only boys.
The more Jiang Xiumei thought about it, the angrier she was, but at the same time, she became more relieved.
Jiang Xiumei said, “You’re right, I’m just needlessly worrying1. I’ll return the jade pendant to Xiaoman tomorrow. It belongs to her.”
Jiang Xiumei did as she said and returned it to Xiaoman.
When Xiaoman woke up the next day, she found the jade pendant back around her neck.
She was surprised for a while, thinking that she was still dreaming.
But that cold feeling when she touched it really belonged to her jade pendant!
She happily said, “Brother System! Your lifeblood is back!”
“……” The system had long known about it.
It didn’t need to sleep, so it saw when Jiang Xiumei came in to return the jade pendant.
“Host, you must keep it safe, understand?” the system said seriously.
Jiang Xiaoman nodded vigorously. She blinked her eyes and asked, “So, how about the points?”
How did it come to this!?
For a system to be squeezed dry by a brat, no one would believe it!
【Ding Dong! Jade pendant successfully retrieved. Reward: 100 points】
But before Jiang Xiaoman could grin, she could only watch in shock as the system deducted her hard-earned points.
【Points received. Balance: -660 points】
“!!!” She didn’t want to work hard to earn points anymore!
No matter how much she earned, it would go back to the system anyways, and she would have nothing to do with it at all!
How would she still have any fighting spirit this way?!
Jiang Xiaoman thought that angrily while feeling very sad.
No wonder her Uncle wanted to be a boss. As a boss, he could let others do the work for him, and just sit back and collect the money without having to do anything himself.
Jiang Xiaoman also wanted to become rich now. She wanted to become a boss. Waah!!
Jiang Xiaoman cried for a while, but quickly settled her mood and prepared to go to school.
As soon as she got out of the bedroom, she saw Jiang Xiumei preparing her breakfast.
She sat down obediently. After thinking about it for a while, she took the initiative to kiss Jiang Xiumei.
“Grandma, you are so kind.”
Jiang Xiumei was really happy inside, but she said, “Who was it that said I was a bad person before. I give you a little kindness and you remember how good I am. If I didn’t give you then, hmph hmph, who knows how you scold me in your heart.”
Jiang Xiaoman fell for her bluff. Her mouth immediately flattened as she explained in a low voice, “I didn’t! I like Grandma very much! Although I was angry before, wanted to run away from home and wanted to give Grandma to Yu Qingshi for a few days, but I told him that he would have to return to you later! Children don’t hold grudges, I only planned to be upset at Grandma for two days!”
Jiang Xiumei’s face turned green.
She gritted her teeth, wanting to punch someone.
But thinking about it, she had just given her a spanking. Another one so soon after would not be good for the child, so she could only secretly write down this matter to get back at some other day.
After eating the breakfast Grandma made, Jiang Xiaoman happily went to school.
The system got its lifeblood back and finally regained its vitality. It was no longer just flapping its mouth all the time saying it was gonna die.
1. The original idiom is “being the man from Qi who feared the sky falling down”.
