Chapter 669 - If Fate is Merciful, Give Me Back My Tangtang
Chapter 669 If Fate is Merciful, Give Me Back My Tangtang
His heart was beating wildly out of control, almost tearing his chest apart and jumping out of it.
There seemed to be a huge roar echoing in his ears, knocking on the last layer of his weak rationality that he was struggling to hold on to.
His hands were clenched tightly, and his knuckles were white. He did not know how much effort it took to make his voice sound as calm as possible.
As he stared at Ning Li, his whole body tensed up. All his attention was focused on her.
He was waiting for her answer.
It was as if he was waiting for fate to make a judgment.
Ning Li was stunned as she looked at Shen Zhijin.
She could clearly feel that his behavior was very different from usual.
No, or rather, he was like a completely different person altogether.
A hint of confusion flashed across her eyes, but she still gave an answer.
She had said, yes.
At this moment, Shen Zhijin could clearly feel the blood in his body rushing to his heart.
The surrounding scenery became blurry, and all the sounds dispersed.
A moment of blankness even appeared in his mind.
Then, countless images and sounds surged over, tearing apart this blankness and silence!
— I’m allergic to peanuts.
— How can there be such a person like Little Junior Sister, who has such outstanding talent in physics and painting at the same time?
— I didn’t expect Professor Shen’s daughter to be so beautiful.
‘I didn’t expect Professor Shen’s daughter to be so beautiful.’
Shen Zhijin stood frozen to the spot, not moving for a long time, as if he was falling into a dream.
Yes, how could it be so coincidental? How could it be so coincidental?
She was allergic to peanuts, just like Yinyin.
She had an amazing talent for physics and painting
She had eyebrows that were similar to his, and when she smiled, the curve of her lips was the same as Yinyin’s.
Her birthday was June 26th.
Shen Zhijin’s fingers trembled slightly, and his chest hurt so much that it made it difficult for him to breathe.
It was not that he had never had a dream, it was not that he had never been greedy, and it was not that he had never questioned any ‘what ifs’.
However, in the endless years that had passed, he would wake up in the middle of the night again and again and sit alone in the empty and quiet room until dawn.
He would buy up all the camellias in the city and speak the words that would never be answered.
Whether it was joy or sorrow, they had all become ruins that could only be buried at the bottom of his heart.
How could he even dare to think about it?
How could he dare to have such extravagant hopes? He would beg fate to give him back the last ray of light with compassion after it had resolutely crushed all of his flesh and bones.
Ning Li looked at Shen Zhijin. Seeing that he had not responded for a long time, she softly called out, “Teacher Shen, what’s wrong?”
She paused for a moment before asking,
“How did you know that I was born in the Third People’s Hospital of Lincheng?”
As she spoke, she saw that there seemed to be endless waves surging in Shen Zhijin’s eyes.
Suddenly, he smiled.
However, that smile was very faint, and there was a faint redness in the corners of his eyes.
He said, “Tangtang was born there, how could I not know?”
Ning Li was stunned. ‘Tangtang?’
‘The same birthday, the same hospital?’
Her lips moved.
“… What a coincidence.”
Shen Zhijin’s eyes were extremely deep as he looked at her, and his voice was very soft as he spoke.
“Tangtang was born with a very serious congenital heart disease.”
In this world, there were people who were not related by blood but looked very similar.
More or less, it seemed to be just an illusion.
There were also many people who were allergic to peanuts.
Whether they were mild or severe, they were actually just similarities.
Therefore, even though she had been here for so long, he had never dared to think about it.
He had only thought that the resemblances that Ning Li had to both him and Yinyin were coincidental.
But if Tangtang and her grandma and father also had such subtle similarities…
A line could extend freely and go in any direction.
But when the two lines intersected, there was only one definite point.
He wandered in the vast expanse of blank space, wandering left and right of that line, never daring to go forward or take a step closer.
Finally, he now saw that intersection.
In the endless darkness, after enduring through the years, he was finally able to glimpse a bit of daylight.
Ning Li looked at Shen Zhijin in a daze. For a while, the thoughts in her mind were very chaotic.
At first, Shen Zhijin’s words sounded very unusual.
However, when she thought about it carefully, they contained a huge amount of information.
More importantly, he was saying these words to her now.
He was saying that both she and Tangtang had been born in the same hospital on the same day.
He was saying that she had so many similarities with him and Miss Gu.
He was saying that Tangtang had the same heart problems as her grandmother and father.
An extremely absurd guess suddenly appeared in her mind.
That guess made her freeze to the spot.
It was like a river that had burst its banks and rushed over, washing away all rationality.
It was as if her brain had suddenly stopped functioning. Everything had come to a standstill until even thinking had become difficult.
She tried hard to piece his words together, gradually piecing together an impossible possibility.
After a long while, she found her voice again.
“… Teacher Shen, what do you mean by saying this to me?”
She heard a slight tremor in the tail end of her voice.
Shen Zhijin looked at her.
Ning Li had been following him for several months. He was very familiar with this beautiful and clean face.
However, at this moment, it was as if he had seen it for the first time. He looked at it carefully.
It was as if it was going to be engraved into the bottom of his heart, leaving a deep imprint.
He said softly, “I want to ask you for two favors.”
“First, I’ll go to Lincheng with you to see Ning Haizhou.
“Second, if Tangtang is still alive, can you help me get her back?”
