Little One Tears the Villain's Script - Chapter 63
Where I Came From (2)
Jiang Xiumei’s face went dark, she squeezed Xiaoman’s nose and said, “What nonsense are you saying? Why would Grandma not want you? Wild monkeys are wild monkeys. How could our Xiaoman be a wild monkey?”
“What is a wild child then?” Jiang Xiaoman asked eagerly, grabbing her clothes.
“The wild child is…that’s…” Jiang Xiumei sighed: “You are right, a wild child is a wild monkey. Haven’t you heard the story of the Monkey King2? Monkey children, monkey grandchildren, they’re all very precious. They’re all adorable kids, just like Xiaoman.”
The story of the Monkey King, of course, Jiang Xiaoman knew.
The show that was played the most on the little old TV at their house was Great Sage Sun’s stories.
The White Dragon Horse, Pigsy, Sandy, Tang Sanzang, and her favorite, the Monkey King. It was her favorite cartoon, and the Monkey King was her hero.
When Jiang Xiumei said that, Jiang Xiaoman instantly no longer felt uncomfortable.
The wild monkey was so majestic. There was the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits and the Water Curtain Cave. Maybe the Monkey King would come to play with her one day.
She sobbed and asked, “Will the Monkey King also protect me?”
“Of course, who wouldn’t be fond of Xiaoman?”
Jiang Xiaoman was happy and burst into laughter.
If she had known this before, she should’ve dreamt of the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits. But she only dreamt of being driven to the mountains to be a wild child, how sad. She didn’t even get to see the Monkey King and woke up in shock.
She rubbed her head and stopped crying, and then continued asking. “Then, did I jump out from rock3?”
Jiang Xiumei took out the potato from the vegetable basket and peeled it off, and said, “No, you were dug up from the earth.”
Jiang Xiaoman was taken aback for a moment and murmured. “Dug up from the earth?”
Was she gray like this potato? With mud all over her body?
But the other kids were all white, tender, and fragrant!
Why was she different?
Jiang Xiaoman wanted to cry again.
Although she was quite willing to accept being a wild monkey, she could not take having mud all over her body. She was a clean freak, and who knew how many times she washed her hands a day.
“I don’t believe it!” Jiang Xiaoman stomped her feet and ran to ask Jiang Xing, “Uncle, where did I come from?”
Jiang Xing was about to fall asleep again, and unfocused replied, “Of course you were picked up in the trash can.”
Jiang Xiaoman finally couldn’t help crying.
Compared to being picked up from the trash can, she preferred to be dug up from the earth.
Jiang Xiaoman went back to find Jiang Xiumei. “Grandma, as I dug up from the earth? When I was dug out, did I have roots on my feet?”
If she knew that Jiang Xiaoman would take it so seriously, she wouldn’t have said that.
Jiang Xiumei felt a headache coming, she froze for a while and didn’t know how to make up a story any more and vaguely said, “Grandma is old, I don’t remember anymore.”
Unable to get the answer, Jiang Xiaoman had to shut her mouth and think about it by herself.
Where did she come from?
“Brother System, do you know?” Jiang Xiaoman asked the system.
The system wanted to play dead, but it would bring too much shame to systems everywhere if it failed to answer such a simple question. But what should it say?
“Host, do you know… Why did Mrs. Flower give birth to Big Flower and Small Flower?”
Jiang Xiaoman scratched her head and thought for a while, then asked back, “Is it because I want to eat meat?”
The system said thoughtfully, “Host, what your grandma said is right.”
Jiang Xiaoman widened her eyes, “Was I dug up from the earth?”
Well, she couldn’t have jumped out from a rock, right?
The script that the system had was not too detailed; maybe Jiang Yue did dig her up from the earth? Or perhaps she was picked up from the trash can, who knew?
In short, this matter made Jiang Xiaoman very sad for a long time.
2. she said Great Sage Sun here, referring to the Monkey King’s name and title: Sun Wukong, the Great Sage Equaling Heaven
3. just like the Monkey King, who was born from a rock
