nt, a familiar figure peeked her head out, instantly making the big smile disappear from Liam ’s face.
He had been far too focused on other things and he had completely forgotten about her!
”Mei Mei! ” His words came out in a whisper as his voice got stuck in his throat and he lunged forward to pull and hug his little sister.
She is still alive! Liam trembled as he held her slender figure in his arms.
”Brother…? What happened? Are you crying? Did they hurt you badly today as well? ” The little girl lifted her head up and pitifully looked at Liam ’s face that was swollen here and there, covered with cuts and scraps.
Seeing his bad state, she immediately started tearing up and sobbing, rivers streaming out of her eyes.
”Ah…! Ummm…! ” Liam was immediately speechless. For as long as he could remember, he had always been bad at this, at consoling girls.
Unsure of how to console the little girl who was almost four years younger than him, he ruffled her head and awkwardly. ”Let ’s go inside and talk. ”
The two siblings then went inside and Liam closed the dull rusted door behind him. It was only the two of them living in the small cramped apartment.
Their parents had died a couple of years ago from a construction accident, leaving these two siblings all alone with no one else.
But Liam had a good head on his shoulder and he somehow managed everything and made sure that they got the settlement money that they deserved.
He was like a scrappy dog that didn ’t let go of his bone. Though he was ultimately cheated in the end, he still got something out of it, enough to get them through for a few years.
With that money, he rented this cramped apartment in a building in the slum district that clearly needed renovating.
But all that didn ’t matter now. Nothing mattered now because, in just a couple of days, everything was going to completely change.
Liam looked around to see the place which was both familiar and unfamiliar to him. Anger and pain surfaced in his eyes as he remembered everything that had happened or rather was yet to happen.
Clenching his fist, he collapsed on the ground and let out a burst of loud maniacal laughter.
”Brother… Are you really alright? ” The little girl blinked and stared at her brother who had seemingly gone completely bat-shit crazy!
”Heh. I am fine, Mei Mei. Don ’t worry, everything will be fine now. ” Liam stood up and heated up a pail of water first to clean all his injuries.
His hands moved swiftly as if he was extremely familiar with what he was doing and he finished the first aid within minutes, properly bandaging everything that was bleeding and broken.
He also popped in a couple of painkillers which reduced his pain a lot, helping him think better. First things first. He needed to go and purchase that item as soon as possible.
Liam took another look to make sure his injuries were alright and he then threw on a pair of clean pants and a shirt.
”Brother, are you heading out to school again? It won ’t be late now? ” Meilin worriedly asked.
”No kiddo. I am going out somewhere else. ”
Huh? Meilin was surprised. ”Grocery shop? But it ’s not Sunday today? ” The two siblings had a routine that they followed so she was surprised about this new change.
Liam ruffled her head again, making the little girl pout cutely. ”I am heading out to the game store. I will be back soon. Be good. ”
”Eh? Ehhhhh? Ehhhhhhhh? ” Chang Meilin stood at the doorstep in a daze, watching her brother ’s disappearing figure.
”Game store? Since when does brother play games…? ”
