Chapter 15 - Misunderstanding
Li Hehua was stunned.
At first, she thought that she was blinded.
She closed her eyes and opened them again.
The little guy was really in front of her, moving slowly.
He is scooping the rice with a spoon, slowly putting it into his mouth, and chewing.
He chews and swallows slowly, eating very seriously.
The little guy really moved by himself and ate the food she made for him.
There's a sudden burst of happiness in her heart.
Li Hehua couldn't explain it, but she felt very excited.
This little guy is a bit different from other children after all.
She had tried many times but there are no reaction.
She finally gain a response now, however.
Although this reaction is very small, it was enough for her to be excited.
In fact, what excites her was not that the little guy was willing to eat the food that she made, but his willingness to take the initiative to eat.
Although she doesn't eat with the Zhang family, she had watched them eat many times and found that this little guy is not fond of eating very much.
He refuses to open his mouth every time.
He saw that he seems to be in pain and even vomited.
This made other people worry and her heart twitch.
She doesn't know what this little guy had experienced, but she was sure that he is not picky like many little princesses and princes in modern times who don't want to eat.
She guesses that he should have a physical problem and it was like anorexia.
It was because his symptoms are like that of anorexia.
(T/N: Anorexia is an eating disorder characterized by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight.

Whenever she thinks that such a young child has anorexia, she felt uncomfortable.
Anorexia is difficult to cure in modern times, not to mention in the backward ancient times.
If a child has this disease, especially those poor farm children, they will die.
The reason is that no one can realize the existence of this disease and there is no money for the treatment.
Even if money is available, there might not a single professional doctor who can cure this disease.
Therefore, the fate that awaits the patient, anyone can imagine.
Li Hehua is not a doctor and cannot cure disease.
However, she can do her best and cook delicious food, with hopes of gaining the little guy's affection.
In addition, the little guy seems to have eaten the braised pork and pastries that she made a few times, which makes her happy.
And he didn't vomit.
There's more progress today.
He didn't need Zhang Tieshan to feed him and had taken the initiative to eat by himself.
This is great!
It seems that his illness is not that serious.
As long as he has an appetite, he can still eat.
This made Li Hehua even happier.
There is nothing more gratifying than seeing the little guy who can't eat but will willingly eat her cooking.
Maybe her efforts can save a child who may die at any time.
Li Hehua decided that she will make more food for the little guy.
She will feed until she made this boy, who was as thin as a bean sprout, grow fat.
It will be best to cure his disease of not wanting to eat slowly.
The little guy was eating slowly and was still eating bite by bite.
Li Hehua didn't want to disturb him.
She just sat down next to him, holding her half a bowl of rice, and started eating with the little guy.
"Baby, it's delicious right" Li Hehua took a bite and glanced at the little guy.
"If you think that it's delicious, I'll make it again for you in the future.
But I will also make a lot of other foods, which can be made in many different ways.
When you eat a lot of them, you will know which one is your favorite.
At the time, you can let me make it for you"
Li Hehua wanted to touch his little face after seeing him eating so seriously, but gave up in the end.
She sighed with pity, "But hey, I can't do it for you for too long.
After all, I will leave this place and will not be able to see you at that time.
So, you have to get well soon and eat seriously every day.
Just eat more often and it will be not the same as it is now you know"
Li Hehua chatted as she ate.
When she finished her portion, the little guys were still eating.
She simply watched him eat quietly.
Although the little guy eats slowly, he's not skilled at eating.
He spilled a lot of food during the process and they were scattered on the small stool.
Li Hehua stretched out her hand to pick up the rice grains on the stool.
However, her hand happened to bump into the little guy's had which was scooping for rice.
Frightened, the spoon on his hand suddenly fell off and his person reflexively hide.
"What are you doing!" At this moment, a loud shout came from behind.
It was Zhang Li who had returned.
Li Hehua was shocked by the shout that her hands shook.
The rice grains that she just picked up also fell.
Turning her head, she saw Zhang Lin glaring at her angrily.
She walked in quickly and tried to push her aside.
But she was just too fat and Zhang Lin failed to do so and instead was pushed two steps backward.
She staggered into the stove behind her.
Furious, she pointed at Li Hehua.
Li Hehua didn't expect this to happen.
She didn't do anything bad and she was misunderstood like this.
She was pointed at the nose and was scolded as a bitch.
How could she not feel wronged She immediately defended, "You misunderstood.
I didn't do anything.
I just, I just want to pick up the rice that has fallen."
However, Zhang Lin didn't believe Li Hehua's explanation at all.
She only knew that this vicious woman had tried to kill Shulin countless times.
Now, she had taken advantage that no one is at home and wanted to do something to Shulin.
If she hadn't come back in time, Shulin might have been brutally murdered again.
She thought that the woman has changed for the better in the past two days, but it turns out that she is faking it, so soon and the fox's tail show up.
"You! Stop depending yourself.
I saw it just now.
If I didn't come back, you would have started.
You poisonous woman with a vicious heart, how can you do it That's your own flesh and blood! Is it not enough for you that you torture him like this!" Zhang Linshi wiped her face fiercely, "I already said that we can't keep you but Tieshan kindly promised that you can stay for some time.
This kindness is really fed to the dog.
Kindness shouldn't be given to a woman like you!"
Li Hehua was very unhappy about Zhang Lin's misunderstanding and scolding.
However, at this time, she couldn't bring herself to care as her mind was attracted by the sentence 'That's your own flesh and blood'.
It turns out that this little guy was really the original owner's own child, that is, the current her's own flesh and blood.
Although there are vague guesses in her heart before, but hearing it personally, she was still very shocked and her feelings for the little guy suddenly changed.
