I was struck until I fainted. When I woke up again, cold ice water filled my heart. From the start to the end, the pain from being hit wasn't as intense as before.

I opened my eyes.

Brother Li looked at me condescendingly and sneered: "You fainted just like that? Why are you still thinking about it? "

I shook my head. "No, I know, because I'm weak!"

"It's good that you know this!" He waved at the skinny man, who pulled me up from the floor and helped me sit on the bed.

Brother Li walked over and handed me a cigarette, "It hurts, so I'll just smoke one cigarette."

I put it in my mouth and the thin man helped me.

The foster mother also smokes, I secretly smoked, but can't stand that smell, I took a breath, choke my tears out, spicy!

But it was indeed great!

Brother Li patted my face, "That's right, why do you have to go against yourself. In this society, you can only feel good about yourself, what else is important? Nothing was important! What dignity! It's nothing! "

I also sneered, "That's right, dignity is nothing!"

"You son of a bitch, you deserve to be a little bitch!"

Over the next few days, they regularly brought me food and drinks, and occasionally two or three cigarettes, and I stayed in the house to rest.

He should be waiting for me to recover a little, then finding someone who's willing to pay a good price, then he'll open the bud for me!

I tried my best to eat as much as I could to maintain my stamina.

The food was much better than what I had eaten at home. Perhaps it was because I had made up my mind. I wasn't afraid of what was left in the food. Seeing that I was being so honest, Brother Rui really thought it was because he beat me up.

Actually, it was like this!

All my suffering, because of one word from Brother Li, I understand, is because I am weak, so I am cheap!

After I finished eating, I lit a cigarette. Smoke lingered on the tips of my fingers, as if it were a dream. It looked inexplicably beautiful. I took a drag.

That spicy taste no longer stimulated my throat, but made me feel comfortable, made me feel even more spirited.

This smell made me like it more and more.

Time passed day by day.

My spirit is getting better and better, and my complexion is also getting better.

Brother Li and Mao came over.

Looking at how skilled I am at smoking, I couldn't help but laugh. "I already said that as long as you enjoy it comfortably, you will be fine. What dignity do you need?"

"However, don't worry. I'll find a big customer for you in 2 days. He definitely won't be someone who will split the dates by the ears. After this order is over, I'll give you 2 points for every order. How about it?"

I threw the cigarette on the ground and stomped it out. "Brother Rui, do I have a choice in saying these words?"

"Hmph, at least you're smart enough to not resist so many times. Let me tell you, no matter how tough my bones are, once you reach here, they will be smooth. Resist more and you will suffer!" Brother Li took a cigarette from his pocket and started smoking.

Ah Mao smiled obscenely as he echoed, "That's right, Brother Ruo is right. There's nothing to worry about. After I think it through, I'll just eat and drink. How can I earn money when I'm old?"

I nodded. "Alright, then that's it!"

Two days time


Today, I turned over the paint bucket and stood on it. The sun was shining on the street and people were coming and going. It was very lively!

I took off my plaid sleeves and soaked them in the bucket. Then I tore them into long strips, twisted them into a rope, and tied the doorknob.

He probably wouldn't be able to enter from the outside.

I was worried and tugged on it to make sure that I couldn't pull it off. Only then did I feel relieved.

The room was dark and gloomy. It was time to light the fire to remove the smell of mold. I took out the lighter that Ringo had given me to light my cigarette with. I pulled off the bed sheet and spread it on the floor in front of the door.

He stuffed more cotton into the window.

When the fire was lit, there was a big fire in the room and in the window. From the outside, the fire seemed to be very serious, and for the time being, there was only some smoke in the room.

Everything around the door and windows had been removed by me, and for the time being it would not burn.

I looked at the water in the bucket and squatted down to cover my nose.

The next step was to wait!

As long as I wait for someone to call the police before I'm burned to death, I can be saved. On the other hand, if I burn to death, I'll burn to death!

The smoke grew larger and larger, and my vision in the room was limited. I covered my nose with a wet cloth and squatted very low. My body was wrapped in water, so for the time being I didn't feel the heat or choke.

The first thing he noticed was the people downstairs. He stepped on the stairs and tried to pull the door open, but it was too late.

"Stupid girl, seeking death!" "Dammit!" The man outside cursed and went down with a "Dong Dong Dong".

I continued to wait.

I heard someone shouting outside.

"It's a fire, put out the fire!"

The jumbled sounds of running, piercing through the thick smoke, I quietly caught them.

As time passed, the heat wave in the room became more and more intense. The fire was getting bigger and bigger, and the ceiling was starting to burn as things started to fall down.

I put my head under the water and held my breath for a while before I came out of the water and took a breath, listened to what was going on outside, and held it in.

"Wu ~ Wu ~ Wu ~ Wu ~" The siren of a fire alarm sounded.

I can't control my excitement. There's hope, there's hope!

At the same time, my consciousness began to fade. The fire was so intense that I wasn't sure if they would come and save me.

There was nothing I could do but squat in the bucket I had just put in and wait.

There seemed to be a knock at the door.

"BOOM!" Dong! "BOOM!"

"Is there anyone inside? Is anyone in there? " The people outside shouted loudly.

I immediately jumped out of the water. "Someone has …"

A puff of smoke went down my throat and into my lungs. Before I could finish my words, it was forcibly cut off. I continued to dive into the water, feeling that my head had sunk. If I don't get out of here, I might really die here.

The sound of the door slamming continued.

With a "clang," the door was knocked open and a thick jet of water sprayed into the room. Two or three people wearing yellow fire suits charged in.

"Is anyone there?" They looked around.

I shot to my feet and waved at them, and one of them slipped a yellow fire jacket over me.

I said thank you and followed them down.

After they sent me to the safe area, they continued to put out the fire. The scene was a mess, and the fire had already spread from the top of the building to the bottom of the building, spreading all the way to the next room.

But I didn't consider any of this!

All I want to do now is — run!
