"It's actually... That place was where the child’s dad had committed suicide."
Fan’s mother said that Fan Lixue, Han Jingming and many other students lived together in the same community as children. Later, the old houses were demolished, and the new apartment buildings there were built. However, due to funding problems, the project suddenly stopped, and a lot of people ended up homeless.
At the time, the demolition of the old houses was assigned to Fan Lixue’s father, who went door to door to notify the residents. Everyone became homeless, so he became the target of criticism. Someone started rumors that he had received the developer's bribes. In fact, Fan’s father was just a low-level civil servant. Even if he had wanted to, he wouldn’t have had the power to do so.

There were sixteen floors in the building. There were no railings on either side of the stairs, so they would have fallen down with one misstep. When they had finally climbed up to the top floor, Lin Dongxue was panting as if her lungs were about to explode.

"Mother, don't come over!"
Lin Dongxue looked up and saw Fan Lixue standing on the edge of the building. There was a girl standing motionless beside her like a statue. It was Han Jingming who had been bullying her all the while. Fan Lixue grasped the mobile p
