Chapter 766: The Uninvited Guest
Jiang Xuecheng calmly stated his evaluation of Xiao Meng. His long and slightly raised phoenix eyes gently moved, making his face appear even more handsome.
“Hateful people also have some pitiful aspects, but this doesn’t mean that what she did in the past can be erased.”
Jiang Xuecheng’s words hit Su Wan’s heart.
Actually, it wasn’t that Su Wan didn’t understand this logic. It was just that such a young and lively face had committed suicide in front of her.
The two of them had such entanglements, and Su Wan only felt uncomfortable in her heart.
Su Wan understood that this man was only showing such an attitude because he was wholeheartedly standing on her side.
Su Wan forced the corners of her lips to curve, and she gave Jiang Xuecheng an extremely faint and bitter smile.
“I know you’re doing this for my own good. I didn’t forgive her, and I don’t intend to. I just feel… that it’s a pity.”
A fifteen or sixteen-year-old girl at that blooming age.
If Xiao Meng hadn’t been so resolute, there would have been more possibilities.
Su Wan had always felt that a person’s worldview could be changed by education, in addition to the environment they grew up in.
If Xiao Meng could turn over a new leaf, she wouldn’t need to…
After all, it was a human life. It was not something that could be taken lightly.
The education Su Wan had received since she was young was that life was extremely precious. Therefore, even when she was at her most despondent, she did not dare to indulge herself in the thought of committing suicide.
When a person was alive, there would be hope, right?
If Xiao Meng could be saved, Su Wan really wanted to send her to the juvenile detention center and find a few teachers to teach her. After all, she was so young. It was the best age to study.
Jiang Xuecheng knew what Su Wan felt sorry for. He did not continue to persuade Su Wan. Instead, he reached out and stroked Su Wan’s hair. His eyes were full of concern.
Today’s matter was indeed a heavy topic for someone like Su Wan.
However, he believed that Su Wan was not such a fragile person. She would not be so attached to this matter.
Jiang Xuecheng held Su Wan’s hand and slowly led her out.
Su Wan raised her head and looked at the dazzling sunlight outside. Suddenly, she remembered something.
Xiao Meng had said that Su Wan had harmed her younger brother?
That five-year-old boy called Hu Zi. From Xiao Meng’s words, it seemed that she had never seen her younger brother after she had been locked up in the God’s Palace.
When Su Wan thought of this, she immediately grabbed Jiang Xuecheng’s sleeve. Her voice was somewhat unconcealable and anxious.
“Xuecheng, when you sent people to find Xiao Meng back then, was her younger brother by her side? What did you do to her younger brother?”
No matter what, the crime was not related to others. He was just a five-year-old child. Even if he was influenced by her sister’s bad habits, he would not do anything, right?
Seeing Su Wan’s worried tone, Xuecheng’s face suddenly turned cold.
He quietly looked at Su Wan, and a hint of pain that could not be hidden appeared in his eyes.
“Wan Wan, are you suspecting me of being ruthless to a five-year-old child?”
Being stared at by those long and narrow eyes, Su Wan’s pupils contracted. She suddenly realized that she had said something wrong.
Although she had never thought of Jiang Xuecheng like that, her words just now had undoubtedly hurt this man.
Su Wan lowered her head clumsily and reached out to grab Jiang Xuecheng’s sleeve. Her tone was filled with guilt.
“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. I didn’t mean it like that. Don’t be angry, okay…”
Hearing Su Wan’s apology, Jiang Xuecheng reached out his slender hand and pinched Su Wan’s nose hard. Then, he put his hand on Su Wan’s rosy lips.
Their eyes met, and Su Wan’s eyes were at a loss.
Suddenly, the corners of Jiang Xuecheng’s lips curved slightly, and a seductive smile appeared on his face.
His pair of clear and dark phoenix eyes unconsciously showed a little drowsiness.
“Don’t apologize. I know you didn’t mean it.”
Su Wan’s eyes were caught by the smile on Jiang Xuecheng’s face. For a moment, her heart calmed down. She was no longer anxious, and there was no longer that faint sense of loss.
It seemed that as long as this man was by her side, she did not need to be afraid even if the sky fell.
Before meeting this man, she had never thought that she would want to rely on someone so much.
This kind of reliance didn’t mean that she wanted to become a waste. It was because this person was by her side, she would feel more at ease and want to fight for the next day.
Ever since the two of them reconciled, this long-lost feeling suddenly returned.
Because Jiang Xuecheng was someone she could trust wholeheartedly.
Even if fate played a little joke on them, in the end, she and Jiang Xuecheng would still be on the right track, right?
Su Wan reached out to hold Jiang Xuecheng’s palm, subconsciously clenching his hand even tighter.
Sensing Su Wan’s unconscious actions, the man’s lips curled up even more. It was obvious that he was in a much better mood.
“Mm, so you’re saying that you didn’t bring that child along with you?”
Su Wan looked at Jiang Xuecheng in puzzlement and asked softly.
To Su Wan’s surprise, Jiang Xuecheng shook his head.
“No, that child was brought here as well.”
A deep voice flowed out from his pale lips. It was extremely calm.
When Su Wan heard this, her brows furrowed slightly.
“Then… He’s also in the God’s Palace now?”
Jiang Xuecheng shook his head again.
“I’ve investigated the origins of Xiao Meng and her brother. They’re both orphans. I’ve arranged for someone to place her brother in the Welfare Institute first. That boy is still young. From the looks of it, I’m planning to find a family to adopt him.”
With such an elder sister, it would be better for the siblings to be separated for a period of time. Perhaps it would be more beneficial for the child’s growth.
It wasn’t that Jiang Xuecheng hadn’t thought about how to deal with Xiao Meng, but after all, Su Wan was the main victim, so he wanted Su Wan to make the decision.
However, Jiang Xuecheng didn’t expect Xiao Meng to be so cruel to herself.
But from another perspective…
Xiao Meng had previously struggled to get Su Wan to forgive her, but she also said that she wanted Su Wan to let her brother go.
That five-year-old brother was perhaps the only thing that moved Xiao Meng’s heart.
After hearing the explanation from Jiang Xuecheng, Su Wan understood a lot.
Since Xiao Meng and her brother were orphans, finding a good family to adopt was a good choice.
She just didn’t know if Xiao Meng would be able to hold on.
Just as Su Wan was lost in her thoughts, she suddenly heard a bell-like laughter coming from not far away.
Su Wan was startled. She looked towards the direction of the voice and saw a young man and woman standing by the flower bed opposite her, quietly looking at her and Jiang Xuecheng.
They were the siblings of the Siswell family, Fiennes and Diya.
It had been a long time since they last met. When Su Wan saw the two of them, especially Diya, who was smiling, she suddenly felt that they were not friendly.
