The precondition is that I have to have money. The problem is, with my current financial situation, I also really want to find someone to adopt me…..
Probably after seeing me hesitate, this little brat stood up from the ground and was actually around the same height as me. His black eyes full of seriousness look at me and he says, “Raising me is fine too.”
Are kids nowadays all this open?
“Hey, XiaoZi , do I look like I have a lot of money?”
“No, you look like you’re an easy target for bullies.”
Breathe deeply. Breathe deeply, Fang YunSheng. You must be calm, he’s just a XiaoGui .
I stroked the loose hair that’s stuck tightly to my forehead and say: “Where’s your family?”
“They’re all dead.”
“Fuck you, LaoZi  looks very gullible to you?” I grab hold of his shirt collar and start to feel angry without worrying about his reaction as I look at his indifferent face in the rain.
Yet at this moment, he became silent, suddenly turning his face and gazing towards the entrance of the alley looking sad, almost like he’s going to cry. His monochrome lips are tightly shut together. The raindrops go down his exquisite jaw and drop, sliding into the white coloured shirt. That’s when I just notice the scars on his body……
There are some deep scars and some light ones, I actually didn’t discover this before.
Before I could finish speaking, the boy agily extends his foot and hooks it around my left leg, then single handedly holds onto my neck.
My footsteps stagger and I fall directly onto another wall in the small alley. He instantly uses his other hand to hold down my unimposing body and then says, “So do you want to pick me up or not?”
The rain is still falling, *pitter-patter* *pitter-patter* nonstop. I see raindrops the size of beans fall through my line of sight. They drop onto his black hair and then roll onto the ground. It adds a touch of cold colour to this dark alley. The strength coming from the hand clutching my neck is so frightening. It doesn’t seem to be that of a student’s. In fact, it resembles a type of hardness possessed by a metal machine. Ruthless. Just like that, those pair of wild eyes are etched into my heart without warning.
And so I unexpectedly said four words, “I’ll pick you up.”
 小子 A similar meaning to boy, or kid. Usually is used to refer to young people who are brattish
 小鬼 Refers to someone who’s the ‘little devil’.

 老子 This word literally means someone who is of an old age (informal). Since old people are to be respected, in this case, the character is calling himself LaoZi to elevate his position over the other person, implying that he shouldn’t be messed around with.
