Zhang Shuocheng was clueless.
Zhang Yansheng suddenly found that it was really difficult for him to understand too much, because he was a child.
She had never realized as clearly as she did today that Zhang Shuocheng was really just a child.
“Zhang Shuocheng, don’t be afraid. I won’t hit you today.” Zhang Yansheng promised, “I want to reason with you today, because being reasonable is far more important than hitting you.”
“You’re really not going to hit me?” Zhang Shuocheng looked at her with his eyes, a little incredulous.
Zhang Yansheng nodded: “I won’t hit.”
Zhang Shuocheng was greatly relieved.
Zhang Yansheng said, “Listen carefully to what I’m going to say.”
Zhang Shuocheng tightened his body as if standing at attention: “I’m listening!”
“Listen, you must remember what I’m going to say today. For me, Zhang Yansheng, your eldest sister…” Zhang Yansheng said, “There is a line in my heart that you must never cross.”
Zhang Yansheng looked around.
The most indispensable thing in school is chalk. Sure enough, in a corner, she saw a chalk tip. Zhang Yansheng walked over and picked up the chalk tip, returned to Zhang Shuocheng and squatted down, drawing a circle around his feet.
She put Zhang Shuocheng in a circle.
“Like this line, it’s a circle, which encircles you. Inside this circle is yourself, and outside is someone else.”
“You can do whatever you want in this circle and I won’t care even if you want to stab yourself with a knife.”
“But remember that if you go out of this circle, then you must not hurt others.”
“Remember, as long as others don’t take the initiative to hurt you and make you have to defend yourself, you can’t hurt others, especially girls.”
Zhang Yansheng squatted there and looked into Zhang Shuocheng’s eyes.
He also has some baby fats, a bun face, and big eyes, which are jet black and bright.
Zhang Yansheng’s hand clasped the top of the little bun’s head: “If you don’t hurt others, then I would not concern myself about you. However, if you dare to hurt others like this again…”
His sister’s hand slid down, stroked his cheek, and slid onto his thin neck.
Zhang Shuocheng felt that his throat was choked, and the fear of poor breathing made his scalp numb.
“Then I won’t let you go.” Zhang Yansheng gently squeezed the child’s thin neck, “Remember that I, your eldest sister, am not afraid of anything.”
Her eyes seemed to want to kill. This is much more terrifying than spanking.
Zhang Shuocheng’s fear of Zhang Yansheng reached its climax at this moment. What Zhang Yansheng said was deeply engraved in his mind.
But just now, when Zhang Yansheng squatted down and looked up at him, when she said that a boy liked her, there was still a smile at the corner of her mouth.
This made Zhang Shuocheng’s memory gradually confused later when he grew up. When he recalled the time when his eldest sister choked his throat in elementary school, he couldn’t remember whether she was fierce or gentle at that time.
But he remembered what she said — don’t hurt others, especially girls.
Zhang Huan went in and found that the girl’s mother had arrived first and was comforting the crying little girl.
Zhang Huan was very embarrassed. In the angry eyes of the girl’s mother, he was taught a big deal by the teacher, and apologized as a guarantee.
The teacher finally finished the counseling. Compared with Zhang Shuocheng’s mother, he felt that Zhang Shuocheng’s father was at least a person who understood the truth. She said, “Wait a minute, I will ask Zhang Shuocheng to come in.”
She opened the door and called Zhang Shuocheng.
The sister who looked like a high school student was leaning her back against the wall and was looking at her cellphone. Zhang Shuocheng was a little bit younger, squatting at her feet, also leaning against the wall, as if a little dumbfounded.
She called them in and the elder sister put away her cellphone and gave Zhang Shuocheng a soft kick. Zhang Shuocheng hurriedly stood up and walked towards the office.
The elder sister paused briefly and followed in.
“Brat! Apologize to the child!” Zhang Huan was trained like a grandson by the teacher, so he was also angry. When he became angry, he slapped Zhang Shuocheng’s head.
Zhang Yansheng glanced at him coldly.
Zhang Huan took his hand uncomfortably.
The little girl was really beautiful, white and clean, with bright eyes. Half of her hair was loose and half was tied up — Zhang Shuocheng, this little boy, used scissors to cut one of her braids. When half of the hair was cut, people noticed that it turned into this weird look with half short and half long hair. Just now, her mother coaxed and comforted her to tie up her longer hair.
The little girl’s eyes were red, and she had obviously cried. Seeing Zhang Shuocheng come in, her mouth was deflated and her small face bulged. She was angry again, but tried hard not to cry again.
Zhang Yansheng found that she had no resistance to this kind of beautiful and cute little girl. She regretted that she promised Zhang Shuocheng not to beat him up — seeing the aggrieved appearance of the little girl, she wanted to beat him up on the spot!
Zhang Yansheng gave Zhang Shuocheng a push, Zhang Shuocheng raised his head and walked towards the little girl.
“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have cut your hair. I know I was wrong. Can you forgive me?” He said in one breath.
The little girl’s mouth was deflated, and there were tears in her eyes again: “Why do you want to cut my hair?”
Zhang Shuocheng finally took a breath: “I think you look good, so I want you to like me.”
The little girl asked, “Do you think I look good?”
Zhang Shuocheng nodded: “Hmm! You are the one with the best look in the class! Can you forgive me?”
The little girl sniffed and said, “Okay, I forgive you.”
Zhang Shuocheng looked happy and asked, “I like you, so can you like me too?”
The little girl didn’t answer immediately. Her good-looking brows frowned, and she looked at Zhang Shuocheng with some confusion, and she really considered whether she wanted to like Zhang Shuocheng.
Zhang Shuocheng hurriedly promised: “I will never bully you again. My sister taught me a lesson just now. She said that I can’t bully girls. If someone bullies you in the future, I will protect you!”
The girl asked, “Really?”
“It’s true! Pinky swear!” Zhang Shuocheng stretched out his little finger.
The little girl seemed to be moved and she really hooked her little finger with him: “If you don’t bully me, then I’ll like you.”
Zhang Huan/Little girl’s mother/Class teacher: “…”
This… is not exactly what they had expected.
The little girl’s mother was very distressed for her daughter, and she was still very angry when Zhang Shuocheng came in, she was angered at these two little ones. However, she wanted to set a good example for her child again. She could only touch her daughter’s head and said to Zhang Shuocheng in a deep tone: “That’s okay, you can’t bully Coco anymore.”
Zhang Shuocheng came back with all his ingenuity and strength, and he was resurrected with blood: “I promise!” Otherwise, my sister might strangle me to death.
The matter was finally settled with apologies from Zhang Huan and Zhang Shuocheng.
They didn’t leave immediately, so they asked Zhang Shuocheng to go back and attend the remaining half of his class, and then picked up Zhang Heling and went home together.
Because it was four people, Zhang Huan opened the car door and wanted to sit in front of the co-pilot, but Zhang Yansheng flashed out and grabbed the seat, sat down calmly, and only looked forward.
Zhang Huan: “…” Okay.
Zhang Huan had to sit in the back with the two younger ones, and taught Zhang Shuocheng all the way. The Tang monk recited the scriptures in general, and his teachings made Zhang Shuocheng feel drowsy.
Zhang Yansheng was still angry when she got home — she was delayed in class. Mainly, making up notes is too annoying.
She grabbed her schoolbag and went upstairs. After dropping her bag, she wanted to send a message to the group of classmates and ask for today’s notes.
She turned on her phone and saw a friend request notification. She clicked on it and found that it was from Zhang Zhiyuan.
Elementary school classes usually end early and high school classes should not be over at this time. Why did Zhang Zhiyuan add her as a friend?
Zhang Yansheng clicked to accept it.
She threw down her cellphone and changed into her home clothes, and then picked up the cellphone again and found that Zhang Zhiyuan had sent her several messages. Clicking on them, he sent all the notes she wanted to ask for — Zhang Yansheng hadn’t asked for it in the group yet.
This… can be said to be very proactive.
Zhang Yansheng pursed her lips, feeling that the boy’s heart had already been fully understood. It’s certainly not because he likes her, but there’s already a bit of affection.
This is not good. It divides the mind and heart of the champion and drags down his academic performance, which is a serious sin.
Zhang Yansheng simply replied with the words “thank you”.
Zhang Zhiyuan quickly replied with a smiling face with two blushes.
Zhang Yansheng put the cellphone on the table and did not reply anymore.
Making up notes and doing homework in the evening is another day for high school students. Compared with partying and drinking, this kind of life is simple or even monotonous, but it makes people feel calm.
Before going to bed, she took a shower, dried her hair, sat cross-legged on the bed, picked up the cellphone, and clicked on the friend application page.
Below Zhang Zhiyuan’s notification, there is also another friend request notification a long time ago — Xu Lichen. She didn’t know where he got her phone number and wanted to add friends with her. Zhang Yansheng just kept it there and ignored it.
Thinking about it, Xu Lichen, Wang Qian, and her were actually children at that time.
The difference is nothing more among an arrogant child, scheming child, and stupid child.
After all, they are all children.
Even Zhang Yansheng, who became 21 years old later, really matured.
Zhang Yansheng stared at her cellphone for a moment, and then accepted Xu Lichen’s friend request.
The time is not too late yet. With her understanding of Xu Lichen, he must have not slept at this time. She thought that if she accepted his friend request, then he would definitely send her a message.
But her cellphone didn’t ring until she fell asleep.
Xu Lichen turned on his cellphone to check some messages at night, but suddenly saw that Zhang Yansheng had accepted his friend request.
He raised his eyebrows in surprise.
He clicked on the dialogue interface of Zhang Yansheng, and what he can see is the automatic message of the system: I accepted your friend request and we can now start chatting.
Xu Lichen stared at the message for a long time, turned off the screen, then threw the cellphone aside, and picked up a pen.
If Zhang Yansheng could see it, she would be so surprised that she couldn’t close her mouth.
What is Xu Lichen doing is surprisingly… a copy of Wang Houxiong.
