Chapter 60: Courting Death
Yu Wan had never seen Zhao Heng after she transmigrated, and there were no memories of him in her mind. Logically speaking, she shouldn’t have known him, but the moment she saw him, she miraculously matched him with the legendary scholar of the Zhao family.
An indescribable emotion crept into her heart. She suddenly had the urge to go forward and slap him.
Yu Wan clearly understood that this feeling did not come from her. It was very likely the anger left behind by the Host.
So… what did this guy do to the Host?
When the siblings discovered Zhao Heng, Zhao Heng also saw them. A trace of surprise flashed across his eyes, but he wasn’t that surprised.
It seemed that he had already learned from others that the two families had reconciled. It was one thing to hear about it, but it was another to see it with his own eyes.
His momentary shock made him lose the upper hand.
Yu Feng said coldly, “What are you doing here?”
Yu Feng had never liked Zhao Heng since he was young. This was not entirely because of Ah Wan. He was the same age as Zhao Heng, so it was inevitable that he would be compared to others.
Zhao Heng was good at studying, but he was just a country bumpkin who brought disaster to the crops. The villagers always said that their family would rely on Zhao Heng in the future. It did not matter if he, his brother-in-law, could not study. As long as Zhao Heng could study, it was fine. In the future, Zhao Heng would let the entire Yu family live a good life.
Zhao Heng’s skin was soft and tender. He looks so weak. Would he rely on such a sissy scholar?!
Not to mention that Mrs. Zhao was stirring up trouble in front of Ah Wan, causing Ah Wan to fall out with the old residence. He was Mrs. Zhao’s biological son. Yu Feng did not believe that he did not know anything about this. To put it bluntly, Zhao Heng was also happy to see this.
After all, his sister from two years ago had a huge windfall.
And once the money was squeezed dry, what would his sister get?
Putting aside how his sister fell into the water, when his sister was unconscious for a few days, this good brother-in-law did not even enter Ah Wan’s house!
In the past, it was always Zhao Heng and Yu Wan together. Yu Feng was like an outsider. Now that the siblings had reconciled, Zhao Heng had become the one who was ostracized. Moreover, Yu Feng’s rude question immediately caused Zhao Heng’s expression to change slightly.
“I’m here to look for Ah Wan.”
His tone was extremely cultured. He looked at Yu Wan and narrowed his eyes. She was still the same person, but she gave him an extremely unfamiliar feeling.
Yu Feng took a step forward and blocked his vision. “It’s so late. Why are you looking for my sister?”
Zhao Heng frowned when he heard her call her as his sister. “This is between Ah Wan and me. I think you should avoid it.”
“If you have something to say, say it quickly. Don’t be a sissy!” Yu Feng said bluntly.
“You…” Zhao Heng’s face turned red with anger.
Yu Wan slowly walked forward and said softly to Yu Feng, “Forget it. It’s already so late at night. Uncle and Aunt must be anxious from waiting. Big Brother, hurry up and go back. I’ll tell you everything he told me later.”
Zhao Heng looked at Yu Wan in disbelief!
Yu Feng’s expression finally improved. Of course, he did not really leave Yu Wan behind and walked far away. Instead, he stood at a place where he could see their figures even though he could not hear their conversation.
If that kid was rude to his sister, he would rush over and teach him a lesson!
“Can you tell me now?” Yu Wan asked indifferently.
Zhao Heng was stunned by Yu Wan’s coldness.
He finally understood why Yu Wan had an unfamiliar feeling. In the past, as long as he appeared, she would want nothing more than to keep her eyes on him. However, tonight, he had been in front of her for so long, but she did not even look at him!
“If you came to look for me in the middle of the night just to stare blankly at me, then forgive me for not accompanying you.” With that, Yu Wan was about to go into the house.
Zhao Heng paused and stopped her. “Are those things true?”
“What is it?” Yu Wan asked.
Zhao Heng took a deep breath. “What you did to my mother… and my family.”
A look of reminiscence flashed across Yu Wan’s face. “Those things… That’s right, they’re all true.”
Zhao Heng did not expect her to admit it so easily. He could not help but raise his voice. “You… Aren’t you going to ask which incidents?!”
Yu Wan looked at him strangely and said, “Don’t I know what I did? Do I have to ask you? Are you stupid? Also, keep your voice down. Don’t wake my mother up.”
Zhao Heng choked. He had read a lot of books and was best at bickering, but he was almost choked to death by Yu Wan’s words.
He wanted to say, what if there are things that you didn’t do? However, when he met Yu Wan’s gaze that was as if she was looking at a fool, he swallowed his words and asked instead, “Why did you do this? Do you know that my mother is old and her health isn’t good? You and your mother have bullied her time and time again. Have you ever thought…”
“I’ve never thought about it,” Yu Wan interrupted him indifferently.
Zhao Heng choked again, and his anger gradually could not be controlled. “Don’t take revenge on my mother just because I don’t want to marry you. My mother is innocent. In the end, you brought this upon yourself. If you hadn’t gone to the brothel to do that shameful business, would I have wanted to break off your engagement?”
Zhao Baomei rushed into Mrs. Zhao’s house as if her butt was on fire.
Ever since Mrs. Zhao was taught a lesson by Madam Jiang, she hadn’t stepped out of the door. She was almost bored to death at home.
It was only when her son returned and complained to him in an extravagant manner did she feel better.
“You’re back so soon? Have you been discovered?” Mrs. Zhao was worried that her son couldn’t deal with the little b*tch, so she asked her daughter to keep an eye on him.
Zhao Baomei snorted. “I hid it so well. Who can discover it!”
Mrs. Zhao grabbed a handful of melon seeds and said, “Then why did you come back? Where’s your brother? Has he finished dealing with the little slut?”
Zhao Baomei muttered, “How can my brother deal with a little slut? He only knows how to talk. He can’t even slap her!”
Mrs. Zhao glared coldly at her daughter.
Zhao Baomei stuck out her tongue and went to take the melon seeds from Mrs. Zhao’s hand, but Mrs. Zhao slapped it away.
Zhao Baomei was embarrassed, but she didn’t dare to be angry. She hugged Mrs. Zhao’s arm and said ingratiatingly, “Mom, you definitely won’t guess what I heard just now…”
The next day, Mrs. Zhao woke up before dawn.
Mrs. Zhao had been repeatedly bullied by Madam Jiang and her daughter and had even lost a pig. She had long held a grudge against the two of them. However, because her son was not around and she did not have anyone to support her, she did not dare to make a fuss. Now, she had finally caught hold of that little slut’s weakness. After swallowing her anger for so long, it was time to teach that little slut a lesson!
This time, she didn’t even need her son to do anything. She could tear the little slut apart herself!
She had already thought it through last night. She wanted to publicize the fact that that little slut had entered a brothel in front of the entire village. She wanted the entire village to see how that little slut shamelessly deceived her son!
She was really willing to use the money she earned from selling herself to please her and her son!
The entire village had been deceived by this girl!
This girl had been missing for an entire year, which meant that she had stayed in the brothel for an entire year. After so long, she might have already been infected with the disease!
If she remembered correctly, losing her virginity before marriage would result in her being drowned in a pigpen.
If she refused to soak in the pigpen, she would be chased out of Lotus Flower Village.
“Wretched girl, let’s see how you make a comeback this time!” Mrs. Zhao smiled smugly and went to the old well at the village entrance.
There was a bell beside the old well. Only when something big happened in the village would this bell be rung.
Mrs. Zhao was going to ring the bell today.
However, before she could knock, she realized that there was someone sitting on the well.
So early? Who could it be? Mrs. Zhao walked forward in confusion and took a closer look. “Madam Jiang?!”
Mrs. Jiang was playing with a tassel as she sat on the well. When she heard the voice, she looked up with a smile. “Long time no see, Sister Zhao…”
