Chapter 300: Nervous Zhang Lan
Gu Moli was so scared to see Zhang Lan slumping on the ground with a pale face and shuddering.
“Mom, what’s wrong? Are you okay?” Gu Moli immediately helped her to stand.
“Moli, Moli, pour some water for me!” Zhang Lan sat on the edge of the bed as her mind became fired up.
In fact, after she switched the two children, Zhang Lan had grown a guilty conscience over the years. She often had nightmares of being hunted by the Bai family.
If it wasn’t for Xie Luan’s long period of unconsciousness, the swapping incident might not have been successful.
She closed her eyes and trembled.
In truth, Zhang Lan didn’t have the guts to do it, but that man told her she would be able to live a good life in the future if she did.
Of course, Zhang Lan desperately wanted to escape from the poverty-stricken life in the countryside. When she came to witness the prosperity of the main city, the ideas in her mind grew like wildfire. She couldn’t stop it at all.
The man said she couldn’t give too much now, but if her child became Bai Jianjun’s daughter, then she could live a life that other people envied!
Zhang Lan had been tempted by the Bai family’s wealthy life for a long time. She agreed without hesitation!
But after the children were swapped, that man didn’t show himself again.
Later, Zhang Lan learned he was locked up for some crime. She was so frightened that she ran away from the capital and left the Bai family with the child.
After all these years, she still had no news about him. She didn’t know whether that man had been released from prison or had died instead.
Even so, Zhang Lan was still anxious about the swapping incident.
What would she do if the Bai family found out?
In the end, every time Zhang Lan was stressed and worried about getting caught, she would torture the Little Gu Yan even more.
She would force her to go out in the middle of harsh winter to hang everyone’s clothes.
Seeing Little Gu Yan’s fingers freezing and bleeding, Zhang Lan even felt a morbid satisfaction.
Afterwards, Gu Yan became more and more silent as she willingly took a beating. Meanwhile, Bai Weiyang found out about her identity and opted to give Zhang Lan some money.
Zhang Lan felt better about the situation. In her mind, she definitely made the right decision.
When Gu Yan went out to become a soldier, Zhang Lan was angry for quite a while, but she wasn’t too shaken.
But right now, Gu Yan began to study at the prestigious primary academy in the capital…
No! She must stop Gu Yan!
As soon as Gu Moli poured the water, Zhang Lan stood up. Gu Moli almost threw the water out in fright.
“Mom, what’s wrong with you? Why are you acting like this? The water was almost spilled!” Gu Moli felt annoyed.
“Why didn’t you tell me about Gu Yan earlier?!” Zhang Lan’s eyes were still soulless.
Gu Moli defended, “I was so embarrassed that day in school. I felt stressed. How could I remember it? Moreover, Gu Yan isn’t important!”
Zhang Lan quickly went to put on clothes while mumbling, “I have to go and find Bai Weiyang. I have to find her immediately!”
“Is it for me to transfer?” Gu Moli’s eyes lit up.
Zhang Lan was taken aback. Then, she nodded. “Mhm, yes. I’ll ask her to find a way to get you to another school.”
“Mom, I want to go with you!” Gu Moli instantly went to change clothes.
Zhang Lan didn’t really want to bring along Gu Moli. She didn’t want others to know about Bai Weiyang’s identity yet.
Even if the other person was her beloved daughter…
In addition, she needed to talk to Bai Weiyang about Gu Yan this time. Gu Moli couldn’t know about it.
Seeing Zhang Lan’s hesitation, Gu Moli immediately said, “Mom, let me go with you. If Bai Weiyang won’t agree, I can say something nice on the side to persuade her to help. Moreover, I still don’t know when Uncle Wang is coming back… I’m quite scared of him.”
