Little Terrified Bun - Chapter 92
Meanwhile, in City W, a city not far from City B.
Inside an old residential district, two over fifty years old elderlies sat on the old, yet clean sofa. One of them was wearing reading glasses, reading the newspaper while the other was knitting a sweater; the cyan colored yarn became smaller as the sweater in her hand became larger.
After who knew how long, the old woman suddenly spoke, “Old man, what time is it now? Don’t you still have a class to go to in the afternoon?”
The old man whose hair had already turned white glanced over at the clock and said unhurriedly, “It’s still early. Not even one o’clock yet!”
“This early!” The old woman appeared to be in a trance for a while, then smiled. “Look how impatient I am. I’m old now! That’s why I feel like time goes by slowly. Unlike when we were younger. A’kun was still a naughty child, and in the blink of an eye…”
“Enough, enough. How many years has it been? Do you need to always keep it at the tip of your tongue?” The old man’s eyes turned slightly red. Afraid that he would impact his wife’s emotions, he quickly changed the subject. “I think the peaches in the supermarket downstairs are on sale. Wait till when I’m done with my class, I’ll bring some home for you. Don’t you love to eat that thing?”
“No more, no more.” The old woman wiped away her tears subtly. “My teeth are no good.”
“Nonsense. The old Chen next door is already more than sixty, yet he’s still eating as he should. Just wait, I’ll bring some home for you. If you really don’t want to eat it, we will make it into juice and drink it.” The old man spoke in a tone that didn’t allow any resistance from the woman.
“Then just buy some!” The old woman let out a sigh.
Her eyes landed on a memorial tablet subconsciously. In the black and white photo was a handsome man with nice looking facial features smiling reservedly, time froze at the moment and stopped moving forward.
Our son only went to make a living away from home, how was he just gone like that?
“Hey! Old hubby. Remember how A’kun was with this girl? I heard that she had a son…” Not waiting for the woman to finish her words, the old man interrupted her grumpily, “How many years have you remembered this for? The girl had said she is alone and doesn’t have a son. Don’t keep other people’s nonsense at the tip of your tongue. How many years has it been already?”
“What’s wrong with me saying it? Can’t I remember it for hope?” The old woman put down the sweater that she knitted halfway as she started to feel stifled.
Peng, peng, peng!
The old man glanced over at the old woman who had no reaction. “Enough, calm down a bit. It must be someone from younger sister’s family. Don’t start a fight this time,” he said as he went to open the door.
“Second brother, I’m really sorry. My naughty son is insensible.” The person who appeared by the door was a woman who looked to be in her younger forties. She wore a bright colored dress and her face was filled with wrinkles when she smiled. “Hurry up and apologize to your second aunt. You are already so big, why are you still so insensible?”
The person being pushed forward was a child who looked thirteen or fourteen. His skin was dark as coal; one could easily tell that he spent a lot of time playing outside. He minced up to the old woman and apologized unwillingly, “Sorry, Second aunt.”
The teenager shut his mouth tightly after he finished, unwilling to speak again.
“What else?” The woman stared at the child secretly, signaling for him to finish the sentence.
The teenager finally continued after dawdling for a long time, “I will pay filial piety to aunt when I grow up, to provide care for aunt and uncle when you both age.”
Silence filled the air. Both the old woman and man’s faces didn’t look too good.
“You both watched our A’gen growing up. A’kun liked A’gen so much back then that he said he would raise a child just like A’gen in the future…” The woman’s face revealed a zealous smile. “We are all a family. Children don’t understand these trivial matters. Second brother, you guys should get over this.”
