Chapter 53: Showing Excessive Attention
The bespectacled man who was beaten up for no reason retorted, “What nonsense are you talking about? What pervert? What have I done?”
“You even have the cheek to ask!”
The bespectacled man was positioned right next to where she had been patted. The curly-haired woman was very sure that he was the one who had fondled her. Not only was she furious, but her face was red. “I’ve never seen someone as shameless as you.”
The bespectacled man also got mad. “B*tch, what kind of nonsense are you spouting?”
The two of them got into a fight. Later on, they even talked about sending each other to the police station and stuff like that.
Shao Nan had already pulled Shao Xi away.
It hadn’t rained in the afternoon, but it started raining again when class ended.
The bicycle had been placed in Tang Moling’s trunk in the morning, so they could ride it back. However, he was afraid that the road would be difficult to travel and that she would fall while carrying so many people on the bicycle.
Mu Jingzhe was worried that she would fall but didn’t expect to meet Tang Moling again.
“Get in the car. I’ll take you back.”
Mu Jingzhe was pleasantly surprised before she became vigilant. “That’s too much trouble, isn’t it?”
It was fine when he had taken them there in the morning, but now that he was giving them a lift in the evening, could he be up to no good?
Tang Moling looked at Mu Jingzhe’s vigilant gaze and felt a knot form in his heart. He couldn’t say that he was targeting her, so in order to dispel her suspicions, he said, “I just quite like those children and don’t want them to go through so many hardships. Get in the car.”
The five kids: “…”
‘No, we don’t feel your fondness for us at all. Not one bit.’
It was just a casual remark made by Tang Moling, but the children took a small step back when they heard it.
Tang Moling: “…”
He was furious. “You don’t know what’s good for you, do you? I’m leaving then.”
“Wait.” Mu Jingzhe quickly spoke up. “I just think it’s too much trouble for you.”
Mu Jingzhe felt that safety was more important and quickly took the children to the car.
Tang Moling snorted. “You could’ve just gotten into the car when I asked. Do you think I’ll sell you guys?”
Mu Jingzhe casually replied as she packed up the plastic sheet, “No, I can knock you over with one punch.”
Tang Moling felt like he was about to vomit blood.
When the children heard this, they giggled secretly as they recalled the incident of Tang Moling being beaten up. They were no longer as restrained as they had been in the morning and they started telling Tang Moling about Mu Jingzhe’s glorious kick today.
“Auntie is really amazing. She can flip a bad guy over with just one kick.”
Xiao Wu waved his small fist. “I want to be as powerful as you in the future.”
Xiao Wu now spoke eloquently after not speaking all those years.
“You hit someone again?” Tang Moling clicked his tongue.
After hearing what had happened, Tang Moling fell silent.
He was recalling his childhood.
He had also been wronged before. In a similar situation, he had been accused of stealing the class fund.
Although he had been wronged, his stepmother had only hit him upon coming and hadn’t bothered defending him at all.
Mu Jingzhe was also a stepmother, but she’d trusted Little Bei without hesitation and protected her.
Tang Moling felt an inexplicable sense of jealousy when he saw Little Bei, who remained carefree in the back seat and only cared about her sandals despite everything that had happened.
She was lucky she had met a stepmother like Mu Jingzhe.
Tang Moling couldn’t help but wonder why he hadn’t met a stepmother like Mu Jingzhe in the past.
If only Mu Jingzhe had been his stepmother… Bah!
Tang Moling realized what he was thinking and couldn’t help but spit.
Why did he suddenly want Mu Jingzhe to be his stepmother?!
Tang Moling shook his head and dismissed this crazy thought.
This lass was younger than him!
Tang Moling’s face darkened.
Mu Jingzhe: “???”
He had been fine just a moment ago. Why was his face dark again?
Mu Jingzhe couldn’t help but move to the side. She winked at the children behind her and told them to be quiet and not to provoke the moody male protagonist.
She didn’t think much of it when she read novels or watched TV shows, but when facing the moody male protagonist, anyone other than the female protagonist was destined to meet a sad ending.
Mu Jingzhe felt that she had to be careful in the future and not ride in Tang Moling’s car casually. Otherwise, it would be troublesome once the male protagonist acted up.
It wasn’t that she was afraid of Tang Moling, but she was afraid that he would anger her and she would feel compelled to teach him a lesson. With her skills, it would be troublesome if she really crippled him.
The atmosphere in the car became quiet. It was peaceful and tranquil.
Tang Moling was puzzled when he sensed it.
Why had they suddenly stopped talking?
Tang Moling had thought that he would be able to detect something by helping her, but it had turned out to be useless.
After getting back to the village, the children ran around in their new sandals, wanting everyone to see their new shoes.
Everything was fine, except that the heels of their sandals would get stuck in rocks and mud. They’d only worn them for a day, but when they returned, they used a rod to clean the sandals. Also… the sandals rubbed against their feet.
The material was plastic, so of course it wasn’t very soft. As a result, the sandals would unavoidably grind against their feet.
It had only been a day, but the skin on Little Bei’s heels was already scraped.
“Your skin is scraped. Don’t wear the sandals for the time being.” Mu Jingzhe frowned.
Little Bei shook her head. “I need to wear them. They’re so beautiful. Besides, this happens to everyone.”
For the sake of beauty, Little Bei wasn’t afraid of getting her skin scraped.
However, Mu Jingzhe couldn’t let Little Bei go on like this. She racked her brains to think of a way to keep the shoes from rubbing against their feet.
When the other children in the village saw that Little Bei and her siblings had bought sandals, they also wanted to buy some. This started a sandal trend.
Meanwhile, there were new developments regarding Bai Qiang and the gang.
Bai Qiang kept making a fuss. If Li Tao’s parents refused to give him money, he would go to their house to cause trouble. For the sake of their peace, they had no choice but to give him the money.
After getting the money, Bai Qiang became even more self-righteous. Maybe it was because the successful extortion had given him courage, but in the end, he actually came to look for Mu Jingzhe.
He demanded that Mu Jingzhe take in his younger sister and pay her a monthly salary.
Mu Jingzhe naturally wouldn’t do as she was told, so he made a fuss and claimed that the reason Li Tao had run away was Mu Jingzhe. In the past, Li Tao had been obedient. It was Mu Jingzhe who had made her ambitious.
As the saying goes, ‘He who has a mind to beat his dog will easily find his stick’. He was just trying to extort money.
Mu Jingzhe didn’t hit him at first and only scolded him. She wasn’t afraid of him.
Later on, Bai Qiang even wanted to block her way and stop Mu Jingzhe from delivering her goods. He also found some hooligans to cause Mu Jingzhe trouble.
In their eyes, Mu Jingzhe was a widow, and they could punish her however they wanted.
In the end… they found themselves in a miserable state.
They were taught a good lesson by Mu Jingzhe.
News of Mu Jingzhe’s monstrous strength had been circulating in the village, especially among those who had been taught a lesson by Mu Jingzhe, such as Zhao Lan.
However, because Mu Jingzhe kept a low profile and would usually smile when she saw people, no one took it seriously. They doubted how strong a girl could be and simply dismissed those rumors as exaggerations fabricated by Zhao Lan and the others.
Bai Qiang and the others were ill-informed too, which was why they ended up in this plight.
They tried their best to block off her blows, but to no avail. The few of them were beaten until they wailed like ghosts and howled like wolves, begging for mercy.
Then, they saw that the large rock that they had summoned all their strength to lift had been casually shoved aside by Mu Jingzhe.
Overwhelmed by fear, Bai Qiang and the hooligans fled immediately.
Hearing the commotion, the villagers came to watch but swallowed their saliva and left.
From that day onward, the villagers finally knew how powerful Mu Jingzhe was.
After Bai Qiang recuperated from his wounds, he toned it down.
Mu Jingzhe had also received accurate news from the dance teacher of the art school.
Little Bei had been chosen to dance for the television station.
Although she would only be a backup dancer, it was nonetheless a dream opportunity for many people.
With this opportunity, more and more opportunities would come in the future, and things would get increasingly better.
The art school in the county had chosen ten children.
The little girl from last time was one of the ten children selected, but after the fiasco created by her mother, the broadcasting station didn’t dare take her anymore and replaced her with another student.
