Who Can Keep The Moon Private By Love - Chapter 4.2
She felt that her relationship with Jiang Haoyue had improved, so Lu Miao wanted to ask him to go out with her and take him to meet her friends.
When the weather is cold, it is preferable to remain indoors rather than go out. During the day, the sun is present, and if you move around, your entire body will warm up.
The winter solstice was on a rest day, so Lu Yongfei and Lin Wenfang were also home. They will make dumplings and ask Jiang Haoyue to eat with them at home. Lu Miao made an appointment with the other children to go out and excitedly invited Jiang Haoyue to join her.
“We’ll go out for a while and come back for dinner. We’ll never be too naughty.”
Lu Miao reassured her parents, so Lu Yongfei finally agreed and helped her move Jiang Haoyue’s wheelchair downstairs.
Lu Miao moved in for a few months and has become the queen of children in this area. She is very courageous. Other children are afraid of heights, dirt, bugs, and parents, but she is not scared of anything. It made boys and girls like to play with her.
Four or five little kids gathered downstairs to wait for her. Most were in the second and third grades because the fifth graders were reluctant to join them.
Jiang Haoyue has lived here much longer than Lu Miao, so these children knew him earlier than her. However, Jiang Haoyue hadn’t played with them in the past, so everyone was surprised when they saw him coming. Moreover, they had more or less heard of Jiang Haoyue’s car accident and hadn’t seen him outside for a long time.
“This is my brother, who is very good to me. His name is Jiang Haoyue.” Lu Miao announced, full of energy, “He will play with us in the future.”
Everyone stared at Jiang Haoyue’s legs and his wheelchair in unison.
Children can’t turn around when they talk, so they ask what comes to mind: “Lu Miao, we usually play hide-and-seek, dig snails, ride bicycles, and jump rubber bands. How can he play together?”
“We can play something else,” Lu Miao thought for a while and said. “Take a walk and play the house.”
After listening to her words, everyone was unhappy.
“What’s the point of taking a walk? It’s more fun for us to race and runs.”
“Playing the house is too naive. I’m already in third grade, so I don’t play the house.”
Lu Miao scratched her head, trying to think of a novelty game that would allow Jiang Haoyue to join them.
The children waited for her for a long time, and all of them couldn’t rest anymore: “We are going to dig out the bird’s nest today. Are you and Jiang Haoyue going?”
“Go!” Finally, able to bring Jiang Haoyue out, Lu Miao didn’t want to disappoint him. “I’ll push the wheelchair, and Jiang Haoyue will go with us.”
“Lu Miao…” Jiang Haoyue stopped her.
The expression on his face was ashen, and his tone was negative: “I don’t want to go.”
“Go, let’s go.” Lu Miao pushed his wheelchair and followed the people who were running away.
Jiang Haoyue held on to the manual loop of the wheelchair and emphasized to her again: “If you want to go, you can go by yourself. I don’t want to go.”
“It’s too stuffy to stay in the room every day. You should come out and breathe some fresh air.”
For his good, she spoke in a high-sounding manner, but Lu Miao also honestly admitted that she was selfish: “If you don’t go, it will be meaningless. I hope to play with you and become better friends with you.”
Jiang Haoyue frowned.
When she went to push the wheelchair again, she found that he had released the brake force.
But he couldn’t participate in the end. Lu Miao and the other children were climbing trees, and Jiang Haoyue sat under them.
She assigned him the “you help us look out for the wind” task. While climbing the tree, she watched Jiang Haoyue with her eyes, lest he feels left out.
Unlike her, he didn’t look at her from beginning to end.
Lu Miao was very conspicuous among the children. Besides, he knows her best among this group of people.
No matter what he thinks, he has to look at her.
In the warm winter sun, Jiang Haoyue waited alone in the same place. The sun dyed his hair a shiny golden color, which looked good-looking and soft.
He stared at a spot of light on the floor in a daze. When the cold wind blew, the tree’s shadow swayed slightly, driving the dot of light along with it.
Not only Lu Miao but all the children glanced at him from the corner of their eyes, wondering what he was doing without moving.
“Jiang Haoyue, help me pick up this bird’s egg.” The boy in the tree was mischievous and deliberately smashed the recently plucked egg from the bird’s nest in the direction of Jiang Haoyue.
“What are you doing?” Lu Miao tried to stop him, but the egg was already on the ground.
The bird eggs smashed into Jiang Haoyue’s wheelchair with a “clack,” and the egg liquid splashed all over the place.
Lu Miao hurriedly jumped off the tree. It was too high off the ground, so the soles of her feet felt numb and painful.
“Are you all right?” She twirled and ran over to check if he was seriously hurt.
The wheelchair took a step back.
The boy who had just thrown the egg came down from the tree and came over.
Seeing this unmanageable scene, he felt he had played enough: “I’m sorry, Jiang Haoyue…”
When the boy came to him, Jiang Haoyue grabbed the broken bird’s eggshell beside him, which mixed with the egg liquid.
Before Lu Miao had time to react to what he was going to do, she saw Jiang Haoyue tilt his head up, smashing the egg in his hand at the boy.
He threw it more accurately than when the boy threw it at him before, and the sticky mess hit the boy’s forehead.
“Hey!” The boy’s face instantly turned red with anger.
He raised his hand to wipe the egg liquid, but the more he tapped it, the dirtier it became. It was so humiliating because all his friends were watching.
How does he fight back? He immediately recalled the word that suddenly appeared in his mind: “You cripple!”
“Well,” Jiang Haoyue smiled sarcastically at him, “The cripple who smashed you.”
