Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 121
Jiang ”Bully” Xiaoman (2)
After class, during the free activities period, and during the playing session, Jiang Xiaoman kept following him and begged him to cry. She kept begging and begging that she almost cried herself, but he still had not cried yet.
Jiang Xiaoman wiped her eyes and asked with a small crying voice, “Your Mother scolded you and said that she didn’t want you. Don’t you feel sad, don’t you feel very miserable? Why won’t you cry? There’s nothing wrong with children crying. Which child in this world doesn’t cry?”
Why was he different from others?
Yu Qingshi had a good temper. After being pestered by her for a whole day, he didn’t beat her. And he still didn’t beat her when his wound was exposed and instead calmly explained.
Yu Qingshi said, “You have no father and no mother, but you’re not sad. So what should I be sad about? Your Grandma scolded you until you want to run away from home, but you didn’t cry. So why should I cry? I don’t think I have anything to cry about. I’m not miserable at all. But you are, yet you’re always still so strong and optimistic. My Dad said that I have to treat you better and learn more from you. Even if you scare me with the story of the Mama Tiger, I’m not going to cry.”
He pestered his Dad to tell him the story of the Mama Tiger. He then went to the zoo with his Dad and saw the tiger. He finally realized that tigers walked on all four; they cannot disguise themselves as adult humans to eat children.
It was a made-up story used to deceive children. Whoever believed them were fools.
“Waaah!!!” Jiang Xiaoman listened to him and felt sad again. She felt that every word he said was like a knife stabbing into her heart2.
She really was too miserable!
She didn’t want to be strong or optimistic at all!
Jiang Xiaoman ran away while wiping her tears and was very sad all night long.
She decided that she would never talk to Yu Qingshi again. This person was very bad!
Jiang Xiaoman also swore not to eat his chocolates again and that she would not protect him anymore.
But this vow only lasted for one night. The next day, the two reconciled and became friends again.
In fact, Jiang Xiaoman was a very vengeful child. Yu Qingshi made her cry, and she was very angry, but Yu Qingshi truly grasped the trick behind bribing.
He actually brought her so many more delicious foods!
They were really delicious!
Butter cookies, creampuffs, candies, chocolates. There were so many of them, and there were even some that she had never eaten before!
They were really delicious!
If she didn’t eat them, then Zhang Xinhua would eat them.
Xiaoman was unwilling to let that happen, so she could only cry sadly while honestly eating them. She ate as she cried.
Yu Qingshi also apologized, saying that he had said something wrong yesterday. He asked for forgiveness; everyone was still good friends.
Jiang Xiaoman was very angry. This time she was not mad at Yu Qingshi but at herself.
Why was she so useless, so irresolute? She already wanted to forgive him so much! She sincerely felt that he was a really good person!
Jiang Xiaoman said in tears, “Cry with me, and I will forgive you.”
“I can’t cry.” Yu Qingshi normally didn’t get emotional very much, so he really couldn’t cry.
There was actually a way to make him cry, but even if he had to die, he did not want to use that way just to make Xiaoman happy. Unless he really really had to, but right now, they were still far from that point.
Even if he took a couple of thousand steps back and think, the kindergarten was very clean. There were no mice nor insects; they wouldn’t be able to find one even if they looked for them.
Yu Qingshi took out a small bottle the size of his thumb. “Although I don’t know why I must cry, I do have a way.”
Jiang Xiaoman asked him in her crying voice, “What is this?”
“Eucalyptus oil3.” Yu Qingshi didn’t say anything else. He poured a little oil on his fingertips, then proudly rubbed them on his eyelids.
In just a short moment, his eyes went red, and he started shedding tears.
“…” Xiaoman was stunned. “Wow! That’s amazing!!”
This was really good stuff!
Jiang Xiaoman watched him shedding tears then tried it herself. The two children wept as their eyes went red in the wind.
Yu Qingshi asked her as he was shedding his tears, “Is this fine?”
Jiang Xiaoman had experienced getting teary-eyed in the wind herself. She knew that it didn’t feel comfortable and that his sacrifice was too great. She nodded in tears, “It’s fine.”
Yu Qingshi was relieved, and the two of them went to the toilet to wash their eyes.
When there was no one else around, Jiang Xiaoman used the opportunity to ask the system. “Brother System, how about the points?”
Didn’t it say that it would give her points after making Yu Qingshi cry? Why hadn’t it given her the points after such a long time had passed?
“Are you going to default on your debt?” Jiang Xiaoman continued asking reluctantly.
“…” The system was so angry it almost passed out.
Did its host think that since it said that it was an Artificial Idiocy, then it really was an idiot!?!?
How could this kind of trick fool this high IQ system!?!?
Was this kind of trick to fool children the thing that it wanted!?!?
Eucalyptus oil, huh? Humans were really too smart! Its host had really worked hard! It had seen it with its own two eyes!
The system couldn’t stand it anymore!
It couldn’t stand it anymore. It couldn’t just sit back and wait for its doom anymore!
It must press on the attack, turn defeat into victory, and regain control of the initiative!
After thinking about it, the system decided to do something terrible to its host.
2. Lit. a white knife enters and comes out red (with blood)
3. This isn’t exactly eucalyptus oil, but I don’t think there’s a perfect equivalent in English. A more literal translation would be ‘wind’ essential oil. Eucalyptus oil is one of the ingredients commonly used to make it so it should be the closest equivalent. It makes your skin feel cold/chilly if wind is blown on the area where you apply it (like if you chew mint).
