Mother fan Transmigrates as the Villainess - Chapter 14.1
Chapter 14 – It’s a mother’s duty to protect her cub!
The temperature had picked up a bit this week, but it was raining endlessly in time for the rainy season. There would be thunder at night, and Qi Anan would be worried in her heart whenever it happened.
She looked at the dark sky outside and crawled through a flash of stabbing lightning from time to time. She was holding her chin and thinking worriedly, how can cub sleep alone at this time?
The novel described that Jiang Lu had only one weakness: fear of thunder. When he was very young, he stood outside the thunderstorm night for a whole night until he lost his strength and fainted. Since then, he had an intense psychological shadow to the sound of thunder. From then on, whenever there was thunder, he would curl up in the corner alone and have a hard time getting by.
Whether it was the pitiful teenage years or the powerful and treacherous big boss period, his fear of thunder didn’t fade until the novel’s end.
Qi Anan tossed and turned, didn’t sleep well all night, and came to school the next day with two faint dark circles under her eyes.
While putting her schoolbag away, she secretly glanced at Jiang Lu, but she couldn’t see anything. His expression was still as cold as usual.
Since he got well, he had returned to his old self, not showing his anger nor joy, so she couldn’t tell if he was scared last night.
“What’s wrong, Qi Anan? What did you do last night? Did you stay up late and brush up on the topic?” Before class, Yu Tianyang couldn’t keep his mouth shut, so he turned his head to talk to Qi Anan.
Qi Anan was still thinking about the psychological problems of her cub, so she answered quite half-heartedly: “Of course, I have to brush up on the questions. We’re about to test for the high school exam. I can’t know nothing.”
“Nothing? Ay, you can ask me. You have such a school bully in front of you but still not using him. Are you waiting for the New Year? I know everything.”
As Yu Tianyang talked, he suddenly felt an obvious line of sight on the side. He turned his head and saw Jiang Lu staring at him solemnly without knowing when.
This was an absolute Academic God. Yu Tianyang felt he was making a fool of himself and patted his thigh: “If I can’t do it, you can still ask Jiang Lu. I’ll tell you, the thing is to grasp this fundamental point, and all the rest will follow. Staying up late and brushing up on the questions hurts your body.”
“Besides, in the environment last night, it’s good that you can study.” Yu Tianyang said bitterly. “The thunder was so loud it could kill someone, let alone studying. I couldn’t even watch TV peacefully.”
Qi Anan’s mind had been on Jiang Lu. After hearing Yu Tianyang talk about thunder, she saw Jiang Lu’s fingers slowly curl up on the table.
Although still expressionless, his jawline was obviously tense. Qi Anan’s heart became heavy, and she quickly waved her hand to drive Yu Tianyang: “Okay, you quickly turn back. Class is about to start.”
Seeing it with her own eyes, she realized that her cub’s psychological shadow was too strong. Just hearing the word “thunder,” he would become nervous.
But the weather was the most unpredictable thing. It cleared up in the morning, and the sky became gloomy again in the afternoon. When school was about to end, dark clouds were dense, the clouds were rolling, and it looked like there was going to be heavy rain.
Qi Anan, who couldn’t be assured if Jiang Lu went on his own, consulted with him, “Jiang Lu, let’s go together later.”
Jiang Lu’s lips moved, and his eyes were clearly gentle, but what he said was still rejection: “No. The weather is bad, don’t walk back, call your family to pick you up.”
Butler Chen wanted to come to pick her up, but Qi Anan turned him down in every possible way. This meant that her brother wasn’t at home. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be able to accompany Jiang Lu today.
Hearing what Jiang Lu said, Qi Anan thought for a while, and her eyes lit up: “Then if they come to pick me up, will you take the car back with me? I’ll take you home.”
The sound of rain gradually increased, pedestrians on the road rushed through, and everyone in the class left quietly without a care in the world. Only she couldn’t stop talking with her sweet and clear voice to the ears.
Jiang Lu met her clear eyes full of expectation. With a thought in his heart, he subconsciously opened his lips slightly but turned his head away.
He closed his eyes. His voice was shallow but firm: “No, be careful on your way back.” After speaking, he immediately got up and left. His back had a sense of fleeing in defeat.
Because of the heavy rain, very few pedestrians were on the road. As soon as Jiang Lu left the school gate and walked out of a street, the rain suddenly became heavier, and there was a muffled thunder “rumble” in the sky.
Jiang Lu stopped in his tracks, and his hand holding the umbrella was trembling slightly. He pursed his lips, took a deep breath, stretched his legs, and kept walking.
The sharp lightning was followed by dull thunder, one after another, without stopping. Jiang Lu’s palms were sweating. He squeezed the umbrella handle hard, and the joints turned blue and white because of the force.
He was walking forward stiffly when suddenly a person rushed out in front of him, blocking his way.
This person was no stranger. Jiang Lu’s eyes were cold: “Get lost.”
Boss Wang’s image at the moment was much more sloppy than the last time, the gold chain around his neck was missing, and there was still stubble on his chin that he didn’t have time to shave.
Hearing Jiang Lu’s words, he smiled a crazy, hideous smile: “Get lost? Lao Tzu is waiting here for you.”
He rushed forward to Jiang Lu fiercely: “Little bastard, do you know how much business I have lost because of you?! That lunatic Qi Yan cornered me. If Lao Tzu is going to die, I’ll pull you back too!”
Jiang Lu’s gaze sank. He threw the umbrella in his hand out with his backhand and struck Boss Wang in the face.
Boss Wang was pounced at with no rhyme or reason. After being beaten like this, he staggered back two steps. He was even angrier and rushed up with a fierce face with a scream.
Suddenly there was a “rumble” in the sky, and the deafening thunder sounded unexpectedly. Jiang Lu’s body shook slightly, his brain was blank, his whole body stiffened for a moment, and he was grabbed by Boss Wang by the collar.
He grabbed Jiang Lu and dragged him towards the side of the road, where his car was parked.
Jiang Lu’s eyes were black, and there was no light. He didn’t rush to break away from the disgusting hand, he touched the side pocket of his school bag, where his key was placed, and a folding knife was tied to the key. It was a knife.
Jiang Lu was already holding the knife in his hand. Fate had never favored him. He thought apathetically that he came from a muddy background but wanted to lead a clean life. Still, God eventually forced him to embark on a path of no return.
