Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 301
48 Days Countdown (3)
When Jiang Xiaoman came back, Jiang Xiumei was already discussing with Jiang Xing whether it was possible to build a shelf on the balcony to grow grapes and the like if the land was limited.
Jiang Xing said that it was impossible. They had to use pesticide or it would be swarmed by pests. Instead of raising grapes to eat, they would be raising them for the caterpillars instead!
Jiang Xiumei said that it was necessary to plant something, otherwise it would be a waste. In short, she would feel uncomfortable if she weren’t raising something. If there would be caterpillars, then let there be caterpillars. She would raise birds at home and let them eat the caterpillars; this would save them the effort of removing the pests.
Before the house could be turned into a zoo, Jiang Xiaoman entered the door.
Seeing that the two of them were not affected at all, Jiang Xiaoman’s heart was much more relaxed and she no longer struggled inside.
Seeing Jiang Xiaoman, Jiang Xiumei was taken aback and asked instead, “Why are you back? Aren’t you accompanying your mother and grandpa?”
“They’re fine, I’m just coming back to take a look.” Jiang Xiaoman glanced at Jiang Xiumei. Looking at her expression that was no different from the usual, it was like a big weight in her heart disappeared. She whispered, “Aren’t you angry, Grandma?”
Jiang Xiaoman was talking about Aunt Jiang Yue.
Jiang Xiumei sighed heavily and wiped her face, “Why should I be angry? My daughter’s fate was just like that. She died of illness, not because someone doomed her. Although she had suffered, she did what she could. You are the one who has had a bad fate.”
Jiang Xiumei had discussed with Jiang Xing before.
It would be impossible to say that there were absolutely no ideas that came to their mind, but fortunately, their family could separate the good from the bad. After returning from the Wen family, they had a discussion with each other and came to an understanding. Overall, they felt that everything was still the same as before.
They had been raising Xiaoman for so many years, so they wouldn’t blame her because of the chaos nor stop wanting her anymore. If one wanted to be more precise, the real bad guy was her father. She was so young when she was almost thrown away. Who else could be said to be as pitiful as her?
When she thought of this, Jiang Xiumei still felt lingering fear. She held Jiang Xiaoman’s hand to comfort her, “Fortunately, Jiang Yue picked you up, otherwise you might have suffered there.”
Jiang Xiaoman burst into tears.
How could her Grandma be so kind? Grandma was the best person in the world!
Jiang Xiaoman cried, “Grandma, you are so kind. I will follow you and never leave in the future. I won’t be naughty or make you angry anymore.”
Jiang Xiumei glared at her, “You’d better do what you say.”
“Uh-huh!” Jiang Xiaoman nodded frantically.
After eating there with Grandma and Uncle and spending the night, Jiang Xiumei sent her back to the Wen family house.
Jiang Xiumei said that right now her grandfather could die at any time, so Jiang Xiaoman should take care of him more. Moreover, it was only a few days until school started, so she and Jiang Xing had to buy her the things she needed and get a house, and they were very busy.
After returning to the Wen family house, the system showed Jiang Xiaoman the countdown; there were only 48 days left.
This number gave a terrible sense of urgency; even the entrance exam the other day did not feel like this.
If this matter couldn’t be solved, not only would Grandpa die, the system might also have problems.
Jiang Xiaoman sat on the bed and thought for a while, then looked at the Veritaserum Potion that was still in her hand. She decided that since she already exchanged for it, then it should not be wasted. Since Liang Siyu wouldn’t drink it and she couldn’t force her, then… why don’t she just give it to Grandpa?
Ask him, maybe he knew who did it.
Old Master Wen was very easy to deal with. What Jiang Xiaoman gave, he drank without asking any questions.
This completely unreserved attitude was in stark contrast to Liang Siyu, which made Jiang Xiaoman very moved.
Jiang Xiaoman pushed the wheelchair, took him for a walk, and asked, “Grandpa, do you know what’s wrong with your illness?”
Old Master Wen said, “It’s not unusual for people to be like this when they get old.”
So, Grandpa didn’t know either. Jiang Xiaoman couldn’t help feeling down and frustrated.
She looked at the old man’s white hair, sighed, and didn’t ask anything else. After knowing the answer to this one question, she used 500 points to exchange for a Revocation card.
The Revocation card was very expensive. This was the first time Jiang Xiaoman used it, and the system was surprised.
The system said, “Host, you are so generous, there is no need to use the revocation card.”
“I don’t want Grandpa to become like Liang Yuanqing.” Jiang Xiaoman was very protective to those she cared about. Even if she wasn’t going to ask anything, she couldn’t let anyone else bully her Grandpa. Until the effect of the drug was over, it worked like a passive skill. Whenever someone asked a question, he would be forced to answer. It was very sinister.
After living for so long, who wouldn’t have one or two skeletons in their closet? Jiang Xiaoman was not a pervert who wanted to pry on someone else’s secrets. She didn’t want other people to spy on him, so she chose to use the card.
Not long after choosing OK, the system confirmed that the effect of Veritaserum had been eliminated.
But it didn’t take long for the system to suddenly get excited, and an electronic sound came out in a hurry.
“Host!! Host! Something big has happened!! Hurry up and open the page to see!!”
Jiang Xiaoman glanced at the panel, and was surprised.
Because previously, there were only 48 days left on the countdown. But now, it turned to 58 days.
Lifespan, plus ten days.
