He's Quite Unlucky
Click here for content warningsFat-shaming, mentions of bullying

Wu Ruo’s heart sank.

He came along precisely because he’d guessed that there was definitely some kind of relationship between Wu Yu and the other three. Because in the past, every time Yu Tianbao and the rest would bully him, Wu Yu would always coincidentally appear and offer a helping hand.

The him in the previous lifetime had always been especially grateful when Wu Yu would appear just as the bullying was at its worst, that he would always appear in time, so that was why Wu Ruo had never really thought that hard about how there could be so many coincidences. Now, it was impossible not to think about it even if he didn’t want to think that hard.

Wu Yu didn’t know Wu Ruo had tailed him and walked along with Yu Tianbao and the others to the mouth of the right side alley.

Wu Ruo turned his gaze, dragging his heavy body, and held back his heavy panting to arrive at the yard that was separated from the alley by a single wall. As it was an auxiliary yard, very few people passed through it, so no one noticed Wu Ruo’s strange behavior as he carefully walked along the length of the wall.

On the other side of the wall, Yu Tianbao lowered his voice and asked: “Young master Yu, did you manage to borrow the Shenbing Seal?”

Wu Yu’s expression darkened: “I didn’t.”

“How could it be?” Yu Tianbao’s voice gradually got louder: “In the past, didn’t Young master Yu always manage to successfully borrow magic weapons from Wu Qianqing as long as you saved that stupid fatty?”

Wu Yu lowered his voice: “Today is that loser’s first visit home1回门 (hui men): specifically refers to the custom of the first visit that a bride pays to her own parents with her husband. This is usually done three days after the wedding day., Wu Qianqing was especially happy and couldn’t be bothered with me. When I opened my mouth to ask him about borrowing the Shenbing Seal, that stupid loser interrupted me, so I didn’t manage to borrow it successfully.”

“That stupid fatty dared to ruin Young master Yu’s plans. What shall we do from here?”

“I just have to think of another way to borrow the Shenbing Seal another time.”

“The stupid fatty already married into someone else’s family, so we’ll have fewer opportunities to bully him in the future. Hmm, he’s pretty unlucky to land this marriage, marrying another man, what a laughing stock.”

Wu Yu smiled coldly: “Yes, he is pretty unlucky. However, the one who was supposed to marry into the Hei family wasn’t the loser.”

“Huh?” Yu Tianbao, Jiang Xiaoliang, and Pan Feng were stunned: “If it’s not him, then who?”

Wu Yu had no intentions of revealing the Wu family’s private matters, and quickly changed the subject: “Let’s not talk about this, let’s find somewhere to have some fun instead.”

“Alright!”

Back inside the yard, Wu Ruo was so angry that his whole body was trembling, his fists clenched tightly, his nails digging deeply into his flesh.

It turned out that what Ruan Zhizheng had said was true. The Wu family had considered his family a thorn in their sides from much earlier on. From the way Wu Yu addressed them so disrespectfully, it was obvious at once that he often spoke poorly of Wu Ruo and his father in private2Generally, people don’t address each other by their names directly, you would use a title or relative form of address that indicates how you know someone. This is specifically a Chinese culture sort of thing, and might not make sense in English. Basically, Wu Yu is being rude af and just from his disrespectful term of address, it says a lot about what he thinks of them.. Wu Yu didn’t attach any sort of importance to Wu Ruo or his family members.

Wu Ruo had really been blind to think that the people who were out to hurt him were good people and foolishly lent his family’s magic weapons to them.

Although they called it lending, the Wu family actually never even returned anything. Later, when his older brother and younger sister had died, there was nobody left to use the magic weapons that were loaned out. So, his father never made the Wu family return any of the magic weapons. And after that, his whole family had died, so there was even less of a need to return anything.

However, in this life, he wouldn’t let them have their way.

Wu Ruo smiled coldly.

Those magic weapons that were lent out had been obtained at the risk of his dad’s life, and some were his mum’s dowry. He would definitely get them back one by one, but the method of getting them back in an open and aboveboard manner would still take some detailed planning.

Wu Ruo didn’t know how he ended up back in Shuqing Garden and only came back to his senses at the sound of joyful laughter coming from inside the house.

Xiao-Ruo, you’re back!” Wu Zhu immediately ran over to support Wu Ruo when he saw him.

Er-ge3二哥: Wu Xi is literally referring to Wu Ruo as her second older brother, unlike the situation with Wu Ruo and Wu Yu,” Wu Xi’s eyes lit up, and she ran to Wu Ruo’s other side, laughter brimming in her eyes as she supported Wu Ruo into the house with Wu Zhu.

Being able to meet his dead family members again, Wu Ruo’s eyes filled with tears, and he swore again in his heart that he would definitely let those who killed his family pay the debt of blood with blood.
