Rebirth of the Little Mute Chapter 3

Translator: wicianiel

Being reborn and getting back when he was young, Mu Xiaoke spent a few days adapting himself to this fact. Now he is 15 years old and just started senior high, while Mu Kai, his older brother and Fu Jiayun are about to enter their third year of senior high.

He can’t remember what happened this year. The only thing worth remembering is probably that his older brother took one of his pencil drawings and posted it on the Internet. He replaced him and acted like he owns it.

The young Mu Xiaoke felt that this matter was too much. Now it seems that this thing is not worth mentioning compared with what happened later. When he was young, he was so angry. It was just vanity. It was just a painting. It was just a childish painting. Who painted it, and what’s the matter? He just regretted that he was too stupid at the time and didn’t know how to learn from this painting incident and didn’t stay away from his older brother.

There is still a week before the senior high school students start school. Mu Xiaoke gradually feels happy. These days, in order to avoid contact with Mu Kai, he always hides in his room. When his older brother starts school, he won’t have to hide like this.

After Mu Xiaoke finished his breakfast, he arranged his things in his room. Suddenly, he heard a knock on the door, and his father’s slightly impatient voice sounded, “There are guests at home, come downstairs.”

Mu Xiaoke hurriedly got up to open the door. His father was even more upset when he saw that he was still wearing pajamas, “Change your clothes and come down.”

Mu Xiaoke wanted to do sign language, but his father had already turned around and went downstairs.

After changing his clothes and going downstairs, Mu Xiaoke saw that Rong Yanzhe’s family was sitting in the living room!

Mu Xiaoke was very surprised, and before he could turn away his gaze, Rong Yanzhe looked at him sharply. Mu Xiaoke was so scared that he almost stepped on the wrong platform.

“Oh, Xiao Ke is here.”

Mu Xiangyang smiled, “This kid has become lazy during the vacation recently. Hurry up and say hello to your uncle and aunt.”

Mu Xiaoke nodded at them nervously. Rong Yanzhe’s parents didn’t care that he didn’t greet them. They turned around and continued to talk with Mu Xiangyang, “The date will be two days later. If Mr. Mu is free, you can take your two children for fun and the new house will be lively.”

Mu Xiangyang naturally agreed.

Only then did Mu Xiaoke remember that this was also the year when Rong Yanzhe moved to Fenglin Yuan to become their neighbor.

Fenglin Yuan is the earliest villa area in Y City. It is located in the center of the old town. Even if the new city of Y City has been expanded for many years, this old center is still very prosperous. There have been no new houses in this villa area for a long time. The Rong family moved into the old house left by Rong Yanzhe’s grandfather.

Mu Xiaoke listened obediently, but he was very reluctant in his heart. The place of the Rong family… he didn’t like it.

Before the Rong family left, Fu Jiayun came to Mu Kai. Seeing the parents of Rong Yanzhe on the Rong family, Fu Jiayun greeted them politely, “Auntie, uncle.”

Like an outsider, Mu Xiaoke stood aside and watched them bond like a family. Yes, he is an outsider. The Fu family and the Mu family have been neighbors for more than ten years. Fu Jiayun and Mu Kai are almost considered childhood friends. The mothers of Fu Jiayun and Rong Yanzhe were sisters. These two people love his older brother deeply and they have a close relationship to him.

Seeing them happily in this way, Mu Xiaoke felt very depressed. He turned around and wanted to leave, but Mu Kai shouted at him in front of everyone, “Xiao Ke, where are you going, let’s go play with your older brothers. Your gege(Mu Kai) school will start in a few days. Stay with your gege(Mu Kai).”

Mu Xiaoke clenched his fists secretly behind their backs, but in the end he shook his head and said to them in sign language, “I want to go back to my room to read a book.”

Fortunately, only the Mu family’s father and son can understand his sign language. Otherwise, they would know that he leave their distinguished guests and hide in the room to read novels. Even the tutor will lost face. Therefore, even if Mu Xiangyang was very angry, he still had to help him cover it up so as not to shame the Mu family in front of others.

Mu Xiangyang waved to Mu Xiaoke. Mu Xiaoke nodded and went upstairs. Mu Xiangyang explained to the others embarrassedly: “Xiao Ke has not been in good spirits in the past few days. Let him go back to his room and read a book by himself. You guys go play.”

Two days later, it was time for the Rong family to move to their new house.

Fenglin Yuan hasn’t been so bustling for a long time. The quiet villa park has become lively. Mu Xiaoke is standing in the gate of his yard wearing a small attire selected by his father. He is in a daze. He is also doing psychological construction. He’s going to Rong’s house.

Mu Xiaoke didn’t want to go, but he didn’t want his older brother to talk to his father behind his back about being out of the group, so he finally gave in.

What’s more, if he deliberately doesn’t go, he will definitely be blamed by the two brothers. After all, his older brother will definitely seize the opportunity to slander him in front of the two of them.

Rong Yanzhe’s parents invited their good friends and close relatives, while Rong Yanzhe invited a few of his buddies. This time it is not only them moving to a new home, but also to celebrate Rong Yanzhe’s admission to Huamu University. This is the top university in their city and even the top ten in the country. Naturally, the Rong family would like to celebrate warmly.

The juniors played in the yard. Mu Xiaoke sat in the pile of young people and picked a position away from the middle to sit quietly. He didn’t do anything, he only quietly looked at the flowers and plants in the yard in a daze.

He only visited a few times in the Rong house, because this is the home of Rong Yanzhe’s parents and the Rong family. He only lived here for less than a week after he married in his previous life. Rong Yanzhe’s parents don’t like him. After all, he is not someone their son likes, and he can’t have children, but they also lose a large amount of investment money. No one will be happy to pick up such a mute man who can’t do anything.

After getting married in the last life, Rong Yanzhe took him to live more than a dozen kilometers away, where almost no one knew them. When they first got married, Rong Yanzhe and the others allowed Mu Xiaoke to go to school, so the reason for choosing a new house was that the house was very close to the new university in the city. Because of this, Mu Xiaoke didn’t know Rong Yanzhe’s intentions at first.

Later, he understood that the reason for choosing the wedding house in such a remote place was not that it was close to the university, but that it was far enough from the city. Gradually, like a transparent man, he withdrew from their common circle of friends. It didn’t take long for others to forget that the Mu family had a young son and the Rong family had a son-in-law.

It wasn’t because Rong Yanzhe can easily imprison him and isolate him from the outside world, it’s just that he was too stupid to understand anything before.

Looking at the big iron gate of the villa, it was still bustling outside with cars coming and going. Mu Xiaoke wanted to go home.

“Hey!”

Suddenly, a boy slapped Mu Xiaoke very hard on the back of his shoulder. Mu Xiaoke tilted down and fell to the grass with a chair.

A dozen or so children gathered together and became quiet.

Mu Xiaoke was frightened, his chest was blocked, and he felt a little breathless. When he recovered, several older brothers and sisters next to him helped him up, “Are you okay?”

He shook his head and did sign language. Then he remembered that they didn’t understand sign language, so he took out a small notebook and wrote “thank you”.

The boy who slapped him was still by his side. He just glanced at him. The other party was taken aback by his gaze for a moment, but he still stuck his neck and looked very righteous. Mu Xiaoke patted the grass on his body, smiled at those who were willing to lend him a helping hand, and stopped staying there. He vaguely remembered that the man should be Rong Yanzhe’s childhood friend. He couldn’t recognize those people, and he didn’t want to recognize them. It was best not to deal with them for the rest of his life. So even if he recognized the person who slapped him, it doesn’t matter, and he doesn’t care.

“Is your younger brother really mute?”

Mu Xiaoke heard such a sentence from a distance, he nudged his mouth and continued to leave.

“Where are you going?”

Rong Yanzhe’s voice appeared chilly, Mu Xiaoke had a nervous reaction, and his back became cold as if he was stiff.

Mu Xiaoke forced himself to calm down. He reminds himself that the current Rong Yanzhe doesn’t hate him so much, he hasn’t forced him yet, let alone the ability to imprison him, so he doesn’t need to be afraid.

However, he still didn’t have the courage to confront Rong Yanzhe. He gestured that he wanted to go to the bathroom.

Rong Yanzhe couldn’t understand, “What?”

Mu Xiaoke just remembered that Rong Yanzhe was barely able to understand his sign language after he was imprisoned in his previous life. Now…

Mu Xiaoke wrote: WC[1]WC stands for water closet or toilet..

Rong Yanzhe frowned, “Go in and there is a toilet on the right of the first floor.”

Mu Xiaoke nodded quickly and hurriedly walked into the house.

The house is the place for the adults, and Mu Xiaoke was very conspicuous as soon as he entered. He had no choice but to greet the adults.

Father Mu was a little dissatisfied when he watched his son rush into the toilet.

The one sitting next to him was a personal doctor who had worked with several of them for a long time. When Xiao Ke was a mute, he also helped.

“Didn’t you say that Xiao Ke has been very lively these years? Why does he look a little scared? Nothing has happened recently, right?”

Father Mu smiled helplessly, “I don’t know, maybe he’s in a rebellious period.”

Mu Xiaoke didn’t know what the adults said, so he came out of the toilet and turned around to the backyard.

The structure of the first floor of Rong’s house is relatively simple. The two entertainment rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows that connect to the backyard, and there are also pavilions in the backyard to cool off and entertain guests. Mu Xiaoke went out from the billiard room to sit under a parasol on the lawn. It was a bit hot in the afternoon. Maybe he should find a room to sleep with the air conditioner on.

He slowly got down, and his mind began to think again. The summer vacation is about to end in a few days. He is going to school. He doesn’t know if his brain is good or not, and if he can study hard. He was not very smart. Now that he has so many things on his mind, will he experience more difficulty in learning?

What should he do after going to school? There are also many people in school who like to bully him. In his previous life, he pretended to use his older brother and Rong Yanzhe as his backer. He suppressed many people who looked down on him with arrogance, but he must not do this in this life, otherwise he will still follow the old path of the previous life.

If he doesn’t get close to his older brother and them, using the banner of those two male gods, he is even more likely to be bullied… Mu Xiaoke couldn’t help sighing. But now that he has made a decision, in any case, even if he might be bullied by other people, he would have to stay away from Mu Kai.

Suddenly, a dark shadow rushed to his feet. When he looked at it, it was a robust German shepherd. Mu Xiaoke’s heartbeat almost stopped, and he jumped to the wall tremblingly.

This dog… The terrifying and bloody scene came to his mind, he felt suffocated, and he was afraid. He didn’t want to see this dog, he didn’t want to!

“You…” A hand grabbed him. He turned around and immediately struggled away, hiding in the corner, away from the man and the dog.

Rong Yanzhe saw that there was no blood on Mu Xiaoke’s face. He looked at him and the dog in horror, as if they were cannibal monsters. The next moment, Mu Xiaoke’s legs fell softly, as if he was about to lose his breath in the next second.

Rong Yanzhe immediately asked someone to take the dog away, but Mu Xiaoke had already lost consciousness and fell to the ground.

Mu Xiaoke heard the people around him talking and was horrified to find that he had fainted. The ceiling lamp with simple lines on top of his head made him even more insane… This is Rong Yanzhe’s bedroom. He got up abruptly and pushed away the dark-colored quilt on his body. He couldn’t stay here. Those sheets and duvet covers seemed to be invading, and offending him. He can only feel fear and nausea!

“Xiao Ke!” The doctor held him down as he was about to get out of bed.

Mu Xiaoke finally realized that there were more than a dozen people around him.

But in any case, he bit his scalp and stood up. The doctor looked at him like this, and he was even more sure of what he was thinking.

“Mr. Mu, find time to take the child to see a doctor. This kind of psychological stress response is not a rebellious period.”

“What… then it’s true that he can’t speak?”

Hearing his father’s words, Mu Xiaoke couldn’t bear it anymore. He picked up his small bag, and rushed out of Rong’s house without looking back.
