Xiao Siye first met Jiang Zhao at his brother’s funeral.
It was a hazy rainy day, and it was dark and dark, and the visitors were dressed in black and carried black umbrellas at the funeral. They showed sad faces, true or false, in the silent rain.
Only Jiang Zhao, who obviously stood in an inconspicuous position, was cold and white, and his face was amazingly gorgeous as if a white rose has emerged from the ink, which makes people unable to help themselves. He set his eyes on him.
Xiao Siye was interested in his beautiful sister-in-law for the first time. Obviously, the husband died the next day, but there was no sadness in his face. Other people looked dull in their black clothes, but his face became more beautiful.
They never met at the wedding, and Xiao Siye used the excuse that the school organized a senior three exam that day, and was too busy to leave. He was not interested in attending the wedding of the eldest brother, but now it seems that he should have skipped the boring exam at that time, and might even have had a chance to have a drink at the wedding.
He did not know when he walked up to Jiang Zhao, the young man dressed in a suit, pretending to be polite and gentleman: “Sister-in-law, nice to meet you. I’m Xiao Siye. ”
Jiang Zhao’s beautiful affectionate eyes swept over” moment, Xiao Siye immediately felt that his back was a little tight.
It was strange that he felt that he shuddered a little. He shudders with excitement.
It was as if the wolf caught a glimpse of the delicious prey, it was like the first time the pilgrims bathed in the glory of the Lord’s coming, and even the soul trembled with excitement.
“I know you.”
Jiang Zhao said faintly, then turned his eyes back not far away on the priest in black.
The priest is really a profession. He is required for adult weddings and still for funerals.
It is like a person who only needs to add a few prayers and can be summed up by the Bible in his hand.
“Big brother is gone, isn’t sister-in-law sad?”
Xiao Siye could also see that Jiang Zhao didn’t really want to pay attention to him. To be honest, most people probably wouldn’t be interested in a family’s brother, not to mention that he was four or five years behind Jiang Zhao, and he just come of age and was in high school, and he had just finished being a little boy—but he still seemed to be unable to see the atmosphere, and chatted with Jiang Zhao.
Jiang Zhao frowned slightly, but he didn’t want to have any conflicts with her dead husband’s younger brother, even if he was an unpopular private man: “sad.”
Xiao Siye said lightly: “my sister-in-law looks sad, but I don’t see you being sad.”
Jiang Zhao’s eyebrows frowned, but when he said something, Xiao Siye suddenly bowed his head, and the teenager had matured. The magnetic voice sounded low in his ear.
“I’m not sad about the relationship.”
With that, he turned and left.
Jiang Zhao’s eyes followed him for a few seconds and found that Xiao Siye was wearing a pair of shoes that were out of place with a suit on his feet. he looked as if he had just returned from playing basketball on the basketball court.
……. It’s just like the rumor.
But these things have nothing to do with him. Xiao Siye usually lives on campus. There is still more than half a year to go before the college entrance examination, and he has nothing to do with him.
Jiang Zhao took his eyes back and continued to maintain his qualified but unqualified widow image.
He has only seen him once, “what is the husband’s feelings ” On the first night of the wedding, Huo Duanming was kicked out of bed because he drank too much. He simply went to the clubhouse the next night in anger.
In the middle of that night a call came from the clubhose, the child there was trembling and could not speak clearly, but Jiang Zhao understood something in an instant and went to the hospital calmly to take care of the affairs.
After all, the death of the eldest son of the family was not worth publicizing. Jiang Zhao immediately blocked the news, claiming that Huo Duanming died of cardiac arrest because of hard work, which not only saved the face of the Huo family, but also allowed the Huo family to recognize him.
Jiang Zhao successfully owned the identity of Huo’s widowed wife, and gave away half of Huo Duanming’s estate, including 10% of his shares.
But that’s not enough.
He wants to win, not just shares, but to turn the whole of Huo upside down.
All the way back to Ho, he twirled his finger on the plain silver wedding ring, thinking about the future. Huo Duanming “who died suddenly”, although it wasn’t a bad thing, it still broke his series of plans.
By the time the car entered the courtyard of Huo’s old house, the rain had stopped.
As soon as Jiang Zhao got to the door, he saw that there was an extra pair of muddy shoes at the door.
He subconsciously looked up and saw the young man sitting on the sofa drinking coke not far away picking his eyebrows at him, his amber eyes showing a hint of indistinct smile:
“is sister-in-law back? I forgot to tell you before. ”
“From today…I moved home.”
Jiang Zhao had no reaction to the fact that Xiao Siye suddenly moved back home.
He is withdrawn, not only does not participate in some rich and powerful parties, but also is not warm to Huo Duanming’s parents. To be exact, as soon as Huo Duanming died, he completely let go of his attitude toward those he loved and ignored. No matter how angry the Huo parents were, there was nothing they could do.
He works as a freelance illustrator, so he doesn’t have to go out at all. He is like a Huo family ghost, wandering quietly in his old house.
But since Xiao Siye moved back, this state has been broken.
No matter where he was from home, Jiang Zhao could see Xiao Siye as soon as he left the room.
He went to the kitchen to look for food, and Xiao Siye smiled and asked his sister-in-law if he wanted to try his craftsmanship. when he went to the garden, he bumped into him, and even if the two sat in the garden without saying a word for an hour, he didn’t see him leave. When he was going out, Xiao Siye was going to stick it beside him and asked if he needed him wherever he was going. Then he suddenly raised his hand and stretched it out to Jiang Zhao’s neckline. He smiled and explained nder Jiang Zhao’s warning eyes that he was just looking at his sister-in-law’s messy collar. He wants to help to fix it.
No matter where he was in the villa, Jiang Zhao felt that there was a hot gaze staring at him behind him.
To make matters worse, Xiao Siye moved to the guest room next to him. As soon as he left the room, he could hear the noise next door.
Fortunately, Xiao Siye can only do this on weekends, and he usually has to go to school to study, so that Jiang Zhao can have peace.
It was not that he could not see that Xiao SIye had different thoughts about him, but he was only an eighteen-year-old high school kid, and there was no spark in his eyes. Jiang Zhao’s patience with him is only limited to the extent to which Xiao Siye hinders him. If Xiao Siye goes too far, he will reject him in the most cold-hearted way.
After all, he was just an adult child, he would retreat after being directly rejected once or twice.
Jiang Zhao’s idea was very stupid, but he thought that Xiao Siye is really patient enough to stay with him for more than a month.
Until a month later, the third year of high school had its winter vacation.
Xiao Siye’s senior high school is the focus of the capital, and they not allowed to have any supplementary lessons. The third year of senior high school holiday is also early, and the winter vacation is a full month and a half.
When Jiang Zhao went downstairs for dinner in the early morning to see Xiao Siye, he had a sense of bad luck. After all, he would deliberately avoid going downstairs at that time if the other party wanted to go up early, but now Xiao Siye can catch him at any time.
Jiang Zhao finished the whole meal without saying a word, and Xiao SIye still smiled and talked to him from time to time, but he did not like to answer, bowed his head and drank the last drop of milk and left.
He was going to paint an oil painting today, but the paint and the easel of the drawing board were in the basement. When he went downstairs to get it, he heard footsteps behind him.
The moment he closed the door, the iron door in the basement was yanked from the outside, and Xiao Siye squeezed in before he closed the door. Under a dim little lamp, he gently raised his eyebrow: “My Sister-in-law hates me so much?”
Jiang Zhao stared at him for a few seconds and turned to turn on the headlights in the basement.
But Xiao Siye suddenly grabbed his wrist, and his eyes shrank, he subconsciously tries to get rid of each his hands, but a hoarse voice of a young man came from his ear:
“Sister-in-law, is it right that you want to get revenge at the Huo family?”
Jiang Zhao immediately pressed the freeze key.
The next second, he squinted, turned his head calmly, looked at Xiao Siye and said, “what are you talking about?”
There was such a close distance between them that they could almost each other’s breathing and body temperature.
Xiao Siye was also watching him for the next few seconds, he doesn’t know how much perseverance he spent, to refrain from bullying him.
“I checked, sister-in-law,” Xiao Siye chuckled. “Ten years ago, your family moved out of the capital. Two years ago, your parents left the country, and you finished your career and returned to the capital. A year and a half ago, you met Huo Duanming at an art exhibition as a freelance illustrator. You knew he was an idiot who knew nothing about art, but the master talked to him and made his eyes stick to you. And after he pursued you passionately for half a year, you began to associate with him. ”
“He went to the clubhouse on the second day of his wedding, and you deliberately put a clubhouse ad in his pocket to remind him to indulge. Huo Duanming has sex addiction, he often hangs out with different people when he in a relationship with you. You know, but you also connive at it silently. You are actually very happy to see his ending. Is that right? ”
Jiang Zhao said nothing and looked at him with pursed lips.
Xiao Siye bent his eyes, the young man had a clean and bright smile, but when he said something to him, it was at all two extremes:
“but after he died, you still never left Huo’s house. Sister-in-law, your revenge is not on Huo Duanming alone, but on the whole Huo family. ”
As soon as he was finished it was so silent you can even hear a pin dropping.
A long time later, Jiang Zhao snorted, “do you like novels so much?”
He shook off Xiao Siye’s hand and turned to an easel not far away, but heard Xiao Siye say, “This is my personal investigation, but my family doesn’t know. Sister-in-law, you really don’t want to tell me, why did you come here? ”
“tell me, I can help you.”
Jiang Zhao was almost amused by this remark: “help me” You’re an 18-year-old high school boy, and you’re not ashamed to talk about helping me. ”
Before his words were finished, he slipped on a scattered cloth in the basement, and the sky was spinning in front of his eyes!
But then he was hugged from behind by a broad arm.
The young man had a light smell of soap and a hint of peppermint, and he shook his mind, but a hot breath rubbed his ear:
“Sister-in-law, when my eldest brother died, I became the only heir to Huo’s family.”
“who else can help you but me?”
Jiang Zhao immediately stood upright and stepped back two steps: “you think I don’t know what the price is for you to help me?”
Xiao Siye blinked a pair of clear and innocent eyes bent:
“I just like my sister-in-law.”
Jiang Zhao’s heart jerked twice, which was no less than the bad wolf who had been announcing to him that he was the piece of meat that the wolf had seen for lunch.
“That’s a pity,” Jiang Zhao sneered. “I’m not interested.”
Xiao Siye looked at him carefully: “I promise, I’m only young.”
Jiang Zhao responded for two seconds before he realized that he seemed to have been flirted by this high school student.
He scolded in his heart that he had been able to piss him with one or two words, and he didn’t even look at Xiao Siye or take the drawing board, he turned around and went upstairs.
But as soon as he stepped on the staircase, he suddenly heard Xiao Siye, “sister-in-law, I won’t check on you anymore, so don’t be upset. But I hope you can tell me about yourself one day, will you? ”
He narrowed his eyes and turned to look not far away in the dim light, the slender figure of the boy.
A few seconds later, he sneered:
Jiang Zhao had planned to go out of town for ten and a half days and come back again, but just the night before he went out, he caught a fever.
He has been ill for a long time, the last time was vaguely many years ago, when his relatives around, he is a carefree child, he has temper can eat candy, can take advantage of his illness to make adults coax him at will.
He was drowsy with fever and couldn’t go downstairs all day. When his consciousness was already hazy, he suddenly felt a pair of warm hands and put a cold towel on his forehead.
Almost subconsciously, he hugged his hands, murmured in chaos, and finally slept peacefully.
When he opened his eyes again, it was already dark outside the window.
On the chair beside his bed, Xiao Siye put down the book in his hand and looked up: “Wake up? Still uncomfortable? ”
Jiang Zhao’s lips twitched a few times, and he seemed to want to speak, but his throat was so sore that he couldn’t make a sound.
Xiao Siye saw him, took him from the bed and half-sat him, and handed the warm water into his hand.
Jiang Zhao drank most of the glass in one breath before he finally came to his senses. He frowned at Xiao Siye and said, “Why are you here?”
Xiao Siye was also innocently wronged: “Sister-in-law, are you so disgusted with your benefactor for taking care of you for a day? If I hadn’t come in time, you’d have been burned silly. ”
How can adults be stupid? Jiang Zhao didn’t care, but the temperature of the water in the cup, with a little sweet honey, added, softened his attitude. After a moment of silence, he said, “… Thank you.”
Xiao Siye looked at him straight: “Sister-in-law’s thanks are just lip service? You come up with something practical? ”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
Are young people so utilitarian now?
He resisted throwing this annoying guy out of the room and asked patiently, “So what do you want?”
Xiao Siye paused for a while, and suddenly his earlobe became red to the naked eye.
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He decided that if the little bastard dared to say too much in front of him, he would drag his sick body and hit someone.
But see Xiao Siye lower the head and gently cough a cry:
“Sister-in-law … can you call me?”
Jiang Zhao: “?”
He had just been caught off guard by his armed vigilance, and when he asked Xiao Siye to pass what was on his mind, he didn’t react….. That’s it?
“Wait a minute,” Xiao Siye immediately took out his cell phone, clicked on the recording and put it to Jiang Zhao’s lips. “Come on, go ahead.”
Jiang Zhao: “…”
He only called out the word “Xiao Siye”, and only gave a call, but he saw that the young man beside him suddenly brightened his eyes, and he was in a cheerful mood to the naked eye, as if a big dog had been praised by his master.
“Sister-in-law want something to eat? I’ll do it. Do I need to change your pajamas? Take the medicine in the evening, I’ll bring it to you first … ”
Ten minutes later, Jiang Zhao kicked the noisy dog out of the door.
He frowns and rubs his temple, and rests in bed for a while. When he feels a little weak in his stomach, it’s time to eat, the room door is suddenly knocked on.
