Chapter 496: Second Life

PreviousBack to directoryNext

"Hello, aunt!"

Lin Haitang's biological mother is a very gentle middle-aged woman. Although her face has some wrinkles, her good-looking appearance when she was young can still be seen.

Because she didn't say hello in advance, Mother Lin was very surprised by the two's visit, but it soon turned into a surprise.

From the moment she entered the house, her eyes never left Meng Lang, and she kept looking up and down with the same expression as a mother-in-law looking at her son-in-law.

"You are Xiao Meng, right? I've heard Haitang mention you to me a lot recently. This girl doesn't often praise others."

Meng Lang's eyes lit up, "Really, Auntie? What did she praise me for?"

"Cough!" Lin Haitang just picked up the water glass and coughed quickly.

"Haha! In the past, this girl was always resistant to interacting with the opposite sex. I feel much more relieved that I can bring you over to see me today. By the way, when are you going to get married?"

"Pfft!" Lin Haitang almost choked on the tea.

"Ahem!" She coughed and said with a look of embarrassment. "Mom, what are you talking about!"

"Why are you so shy? Isn't it because you brought someone here today to get married?" Mother Lin asked doubtfully.

Meng Lang immediately gave Mother Lin a thumbs up.

"Auntie, your vision is so accurate!"

A wise daughter is better than a mother.

As far as Lin Haitang's strategy difficulty is concerned, that is, he can "go back and start over". Ordinary people can't even say that they can pass five levels and kill six generals to drag her to the step of "meeting her parents". Now she can't tell where to travel outside.


And being able to get to this point is almost equivalent to getting Lin Haitang's approval, otherwise it would be impossible to enter the house.

"Xiao Meng, among so many suitors, you are not the best, but you are the only successful one. By the way, how did you and Haitang meet?"

"Haha! That's a long story..."

Mother Lin looked like she was seeing her son-in-law and asked her questions. Meng Lang didn't find it annoying at all. She answered all the questions. Of course, she skipped some too exciting scenes...

While chatting, the topic of conversation naturally went straight to the "auspicious day", and Lin Haitang quickly changed the topic.

"Ahem! It's already this time, are you all hungry? Why don't we go out to eat."

"Oh, look at my brain. I met my aunt so late that I forgot to eat while we were chatting.

Haitang, hurry up and go to the kitchen to cook two dishes!"

"Yes, yes! We were just chatting here. Haitang, there are some dishes in the refrigerator. You go and make some. There is no food out there that is as delicious as yours.

Xiao Meng, I’m not bragging to you, our Haitang’s cooking skills are something that even a mother like me would be ashamed of..."

Meng Lang looked like he didn't think of himself as an outsider at all. Mother Lin also took the initiative to show off her baby, and the two hit it off.

Lin Haitang: "..."

Seeing Lin Haitang walking into the kitchen with a helpless expression, Meng Lang slowly withdrew his gaze, turned to look at Mother Lin and smiled.

"Aunt, Haitang is so filial to you. I think you must have loved her very much when she was a child, right?"

After deliberately pushing Lin Haitang away, Meng Lang naturally wanted to get some information from Mother Lin.

"Well! Haitang is my only child. If I don't love her, who will I love? It's a pity that this child has been a miserable person since he was a child, and he ended up in a family like ours..."

Mother Lin sighed.

"Haitang was only seven years old at the time of the divorce. As a housewife who knew nothing, I could only barely support myself, so I voluntarily gave up custody rights.

I thought Haitang would live a good life with him, but who knew that later... alas!

It was only in the past two years that I learned that she was still carrying Xiaoyu alone.

This kid Haitang is good at everything, but he is too sensible. He doesn't tell me anything and does everything by himself. I really regret it. If I had..."

Seeing that "searching for the truth" was about to turn into "remembering the bitter and thinking of the sweet", Meng Lang said quickly.

"Auntie, don't blame yourself too much. Haitang is living a good life now. By the way, auntie, I have never heard Haitang talk about her childhood. Can you tell me about it?"

"When I was little..." Mother Lin showed a slight smile.

"You don't know, Haitang was very smart when she was a child. She has never been worried about since she was a child. She is like a little adult. Even the teacher in the kindergarten said that this child is a little prodigy. If not..."

Mother Lin paused and sighed for some reason.

"Did Haitang... have memory loss when she was a child?" Meng Lang asked tentatively.

"Huh?" This time, Mother Lin was shocked.

"Xiao Meng, how do you know..." She seemed to react immediately.

"It must have been Haitang who told you. I thought she was still young at that time and didn't remember anything."

Meng Lang confirmed his suspicion, but he was not happy at all.

"Haitang mentioned to me that she couldn't remember anything about her childhood. Auntie, did something happen at that time?"

"Alas! In the early years, we went to a temple to have fortunes told. The fortune teller said that Haitang was born smart, but she was 'precocious and easy to get hurt.' I don't know if that was why she suffered a disaster.

Sure enough, when she was 6 years old, Haitang had an inexplicable high fever and suddenly couldn't remember anything.

During that time, I blamed myself very much. His father was working hard for his career outside, while I devoted myself wholeheartedly to taking care of Haitang at home.

Fortunately, Haitang learned things quickly after losing her memory and was able to go to school normally in more than a year.

We have always felt that this matter was unknown, and we did not want to leave any shadow on Haitang's childhood, so we never mentioned it to her. Unexpectedly, Haitang knew that she had always known..."

Hmm! Of course she doesn’t know. I also investigated dozens of episodes and finally found the clues...

Meng Lang sighed secretly in his heart.

This matter sounded somewhat fantasy in Mother Lin's words, but Meng Lang knew that it was not the case at all.

As early as the day he guessed that Lin Haitang was the previous owner of the autobiography, he had made some guesses.

Aside from the possibility of naturally occurring memory loss...

Is there another possibility...

Did Lin Haitang himself use some special means to cause himself to lose his memory?

Although it is a bit strange, you must know that autobiography not only brings the opportunity to read about the future, but also has powerful side effects!

The threat of "rupture" is always present for every user of autobiography.

Fortunately for Meng Lang, the soul of an adult, even if it inherits memory fragments of ten or twenty years, will not have much impact on its own consciousness in a short period of time if the memory fragments are not repeated frequently.

But Lin Haitang was only five or six years old at that time, and his outlook and consciousness had not yet been fully formed.

Taking over the memories of an adult at this time... is equivalent to using at least twenty or thirty years of life experience to cover the conscious world of a mere five-year-old child.

Even if it is just some memory signals that travel through time and space, Lin Haitang will probably be greatly affected, both in terms of personality and spirit.

It is not impossible for it to turn black in minutes.

Analyzing from this point of view, there will definitely not be too many "opportunities" for Lin Haitang to read about life.

She will face Xue Huaiyi's problems more quickly...

In ancient times, eminent Buddhist monks such as Xuanzang and Xue Huaiyi of the Tang Dynasty chose to escape into Buddhism.

Because only "all four elements are empty" can you offset the influence from other personalities to the greatest extent and extend your reading time.

However, in modern times, with the rapid advancement of biomedicine, even without a profound spiritual realm, there is actually another way to achieve similar goals...

It is difficult to say whether there will be a human body technology in the future that can achieve a similar effect of completely "formatting" itself and restoring factory settings.

So, did Lin Haitang choose this method of "completely clearing" his memory and turning it into a blank sheet of paper again, to achieve the same "empty" purpose...

There is nothing in the first place, so where is the dust?

Although the cost is extremely high, it is almost the same as drinking Meng Po Tang and being reincarnated, but... can it be regarded as gaining a "second life" in a sense?

Meng Lang had basically confirmed his suspicion at this time.

Perhaps every owner of an autobiography is trying to save himself.

Xue Huaiyi chose to commit suicide, the eminent monks chose to cut off the seven emotions and six desires, and Zhuangzi chose the path of happiness...

And Lin Haitang...

He couldn't help but turn his head and look at the slim figure busy in the kitchen.

This world does not meet anyone's expectations.

But some people are still persisting, while others choose to forget...
