Mu Xiaoke was sitting on a recliner on the porch, looking at the familiar, almost unchanging woods outside the balcony. He has been locked up in this room for three months. In the past three months, he has tried to escape countless times, but every time he asks for help, it will lead to more severe punishment.
A few sparrows flapped their wings and fell through the anti-theft net on the balcony. They bounce vivaciously in his footsteps. He smiled unconsciously. If only… he was like these little birds.
He leaned over and gently touched the little sparrows. The little sparrows were not afraid of strangers. They tilted their heads and looked straight at him with their crystal and cute little eyes.
It’s just that soon, the little birds were deterred by a man and scattered one after another.
Mu Xiaoke was also frightened uncontrollably. When he looked at his back, he saw his nominal husband, Rong Yanzhe, standing behind him.
The last time they met was seven days ago. Although Rong Yanzhe was his legal spouse, they have never been a couple; he was just a substitute for Rong Yanzhe’s lust, and his older brother was the dream lover that Rong Yanzhe wanted.
Rong Yanzhe locked him up, tortured him, and abused him. He had become a frightened bird惊弓之鸟 – sb who frightens easily, due to past experiences. He was unwilling to face Rong Yanzhe. When facing him, he would think of some terrible images, which made him restless and even vomited.
So when Rong Yanzhe leaned over and approached him, he immediately jumped up and retreated to the edge of the balcony.
Mu Xiaoke looked up and saw Rong Yanzhe frowning at him. The fury in his eyes made him even more afraid.
“Is this how you greet your husband?”
Mu Xiaoke turned his head. He didn’t know what a husband was. He only knew that he wanted to be free, and the person who deprived him of his freedom was the one who was questioning him in a righteous manner.
Mu Xiaoke was alert, and as soon as Rong Yanzhe raised his leg, he immediately leapt to another corner.
The fury in Rong Yanzhe’s eyes was even stronger, Mu Xiaoke could feel his anger even two meters away. He groped the wall behind him with the back of his hand, trying to stay away from Rong Yanzhe a little.
But Rong Yanzhe was a head taller than him, with his long legs, he trapped him by the wall in one step.
“Have you forgotten who you are! How much longer do you want to be pretentious! You’re the one who pretends to be pitiful to outsiders. The one who is timid and afraid to take the blame! Do you think you’re still the same child who can get toys by tears!”
Mu Xiaoke was stunned, his heartbeat had almost stopped, and those terrible images appeared in his mind again. He wanted to scream, but he couldn’t scream. He couldn’t cry out. He was a mute. There was no way to vent all his fear and suffering. But Rong Yanzhe uncovered his scars repeatedly, making him remember his nightmares over and over again!
He didn’t want to harm others. He didn’t want to avoid the blame and he didn’t pretend to be pitiful to get toys! He really wanted to ask Rong Yanzhe, what did he get, what did he get that makes Rong Yanzhe hate him so much. Is it because he’s not obedient? Is it something he once liked and his older brother likes it too? But now he doesn’t like anything anymore. For what reason? Why scold him? Is he not punished enough? What else?
“You dare to cry!”
Mu Xiaoke shook his head desperately, he didn’t cry, he held back, he really didn’t cry!
However, before he could refute, Rong Yanzhe picked him up in a rage and threw him on the bed. He realized that something was wrong. He struggled desperately. Rong Yanzhe tore his pajamas and he was almost suffocated. When his clothes were torn apart and he felt a chill on his chest, Mu Xiaoke went crazy. He didn’t want to be touched, he didn’t want to be touched!
His eyes were red and he struggled with his limbs. If earlier he was afraid of Rong Yanzhe, he is even more afraid of being used by Rong Yanzhe. He would rather be beaten by Rong Yanzhe than have another relationship with Rong Yanzhe. He doesn’t want to!
Rong Yanzhe didn’t expect to be resisted by Mu Xiaoke so much. Without precaution, he was kicked in the chest by Mu Xiaoke and he was slapped twice on his face. Mu Xiaoke took advantage of this and got out of his control. He hugged the quilt tightly and shrank to the corner. He looked at him tremblingly. Mu Xiaoke couldn’t talk anymore. The doctor said that he might not be able to speak in the future, so no matter how painful or scared he was, he could only stare at him. Just like in this situation.
Rong Yanzhe turned around and left the room as if he had suddenly come to his senses.
It wasn’t until Rong Yanzhe’s figure disappeared at the door that Mu Xiaoke had a chance to breathe. He hurriedly changed into new clothes and wrapped his whole body tightly, he felt relieved.
However, what surprised him even more was that Rong Yanzhe didn’t lock the door when he left!
He’s not locked up!
Mu Xiaoke was so excited that his hands were trembling. He wanted to escape. He doesn’t want to stay at the Rong’s house anymore. He wanted to escape!!!
Mu Xiaoke grabbed a coat and walked out of the room. He probed carefully to make sure that there was no one in the house at this time. He hurriedly went downstairs and rushed to the door on the first floor. No one appeared.
And the door was opened by him at one try!
However, everything outside the gate made him at a loss, this is not the Rong’s home!
He turned around to see that this building was not the house that Rong Yanzhe bought in Tenth Ring Road. There was nothing outside the building, and there were endless forests.
However, Mu Xiaoke wasn’t concerned, he wanted to leave here, no matter where this was, he had to get out!
Mu Xiaoke didn’t have a mobile phone on him and he didn’t have anything to navigate. He just walked blindly, hoping that he would make it to the exit and be able to see something other than the woods.
However, no, on the first night he entered this forest, an unknown bug bit him so much that he didn’t have a piece of good meat on his body. The sudden heavy rain caused him to have a high fever and it continued for three consecutive days…
Mu Xiaoke didn’t know when he lost consciousness. He opened his eyes in a daze. The sunlight leaked into the woods, illuminating the world in front of him and the sky was clear…
But he no longer has any ability to save himself. He has no water, no food, and his fever won’t go down…
A few little sparrows chirped and fell in front of him. He smiled slightly and slowly closed his eyes.
