"Yes. You ought to thank me!" He told her this with his arms crossed. "You see; I'm not just your manager but your nanny as well! I haven't been this kind to anyone else before!"
He sat on the bed's edge and said seriously, "Shishi, don't dwell on the past. Some things are best to leave behind. It's time for you to let go of the pain. I believe in cause and effect. We reap what we sow. Sow what is good, and you reap just reward; sow bad seeds, and you reap retribution. That Mu Wanrou is misguided and despicable; she'll suffer for it sooner or later!"
She found his words to be profound. "Qin Zhou, are you a Buddhist?"
"I don't believe in Buddhism but in retribution, instead." He propped his chin in his palm ponderously and continued, "You reap what you sow; those who do evil will have their retribution someday!"
The chain dragged noisily on the floor of a gloomy corridor of a prison.
A middle-age man with a crown of white hair stumbled forward when a prison guard kicked his leg mercilessly.
The prison door slowly opened.
In a chair inside the interrogation room sat Yun Tianyou with his agent standing beside him.
As the man was hurled into the interrogation room by a prison guard, he quickly spotted the smart-looking lad with an adorable face and graceful disposition. Right now, however, his innocent face was holding a cold and stern look.
Luo Hanjin was pushed on the interrogation seat with his hands cuffed.
Li Hanlin exchanged a look with the prison guard. The latter got his meaning easily and left them to their devices respectfully.
The bewildered man could not fathom the happenings around him. He had been serving his prison sentence all along when he was summoned out here today for no apparent reason. Now, he was meeting a lad of no more than seven years old. Was this for real?
He was on his full guard as he eyed the man standing beside the little boy. "Who are you?"
The agent merely looked at him impassively. Suddenly, without warning, the little lad opened his mouth casually. "Luo Hanjin, you don't have to mind our identity. I'm here to ask you a few questions; you'd better be honest with your answers. If you try to hide anything, I'll make sure you suffer the consequence."
"Who are you? For a mere kid, you sure are boastful, aren't you?" The man was displeased and unimpressed with the boy.
He enjoyed good times before, and although he was down and out now, it seemed that his ordeal would be over soon. Now that the hype about the incident had died down, his sentence was reduced time and again. At present, the original court sentence of life imprisonment was reduced to a 10-year jail time. He would be out of prison before long.
Hence, he was unbothered by this little boy.
The agent was really turned off by the man's willful words and harshly reprimanded, "Luo Hanjin, do you really think that everything is fine and dandy since you can get out of prison earlier than your term? Do you think I can't extend your imprisonment?"
"He he! Are you taking me for a ride? You haven't told me who you are in the first place, so do you think I'll be threatened by every Tom, Dick, and Harry?" He sniggered with a despicable look.
The boy smiled eerily, his doleful eyes shining chillingly. "Well. It looks like we have to show you what we are capable of to get your cooperation!"
"What do you mean?"
The man looked at him quizzically as Li Hanlin walked over to the entrance. With two claps of his hands, two prison guards emerged with their police batons.
One of them aimed his baton at his crown and hit hard, sending his head spinning.
