“Young master, you must come back with me. The Han family needs you!”
“Your father is gravely ill, your brother is in prison, you are the only one left to lead and to carry the Han family.”
“Your grandmother gave her final verdict that we must bring you back.
In the XingTong Streets of Yun City.
Han Jingru was carrying a box of gift and the man was wearing a casual tee. He had an indifferent expression.
“I’m afraid I do not like to curry favor with her since I was little. In comparison, brother was able to gain all of her affection. Grandma was afraid that I would snatch his position as the heir of the family and she chased me out of the Han family.”
“I have suffered all kinds of humiliation when I was a matrilocal man in the Su family. Did the Han family ever care for me? She was the one that forced me to leave and now she wanted me to go back? Does she think I, Han Jingru is a dog or something?”
“Now I just want to be a good for nothing. And please do not interrupt my life!”
Han Jingru strode away, leaving the group of people looking at each other.
The Su family was only a second-tier family. But when Han Jingru was forsaken three years ago, it was the Su family patriarch that took him in and arranged his wedding. At that time, the wedding had completely turned the Yun city upside down, but for the worse reason: that Su Yimo married an utter loser. The family became the joke of the entire Yun city.
The Su family patriarch was the only person that knew Han Jingru’s real identity. But two months after the wedding, the old man passed away due to his sickness. And from then onwards, no one knew his real identity. The married man became the laughingstock and simply stayed the loser everyone thought of him.
For all three years, Han Jingru suffered all kinds of degradation and deride. But it was nothing compared to how much he was broken after getting chased out from his own family.
The man gave in and surrendered to his fate. He even got used to the daily insults and mockery.
It was the birthday of the old Madam in Su family and Han Jingru had spent a long time choosing his gift. However, it wasn’t something of high monetary value and he was prepared to be mocked. The man had very ‘limited’ finance and that was the most he could afford.
As for what happened earlier, Han Jingru was completely undisturbed and he even felt that the idea was laughable.
His brother was able to make his words dance in the ear and sweeten the mouth. Although he was able to get the grandmother’s favor, the man was arrogant and scandalous. It was just inevitable for him to get into trouble sooner or later.
With him leading the Han family, it was just destined for the family to fall.
But what did that have to do with me? I was just thrown away, a garbage from the Su family.
Su Yimo was a gorgeous woman. She was so outstanding that her marriage with the ‘low-born’ Han Jingru became a complete joke three years ago. However, their marriage was in name only.
The moment Han Jingru saw Yimo, he quickened his steps towards the woman, “Yimo, who are you waiting for?”
Yimo looked at Han Jingru with loathe, “Have you prepared a present for grandma?”
Han Jingru lifted the gift box in his hand and said, “Of course, I had spent quite the effort in choosing this!”
Su Yimo didn’t even give him another look. The woman didn’t know what happened three years ago and what had gotten into her grandfather when he forced her to marry Han Jingru, insisting the young man to marry into their family.
The most perturbing thing was, before the grandfather passed away, he held her hand firmly and told her to never look down on Han Jingru.
It had been three years already. Su Yimo couldn’t understand how this useless man could win the favor of her grandfather. If it wasn’t for the sake of the Su family’s reputation, she would have long divorced Han Jingru already.
“Make sure you don’t say anything later. All of the relatives would be there, and they would definitely make fun of you. But you must make sure to swallow it in. I do not want to get embarrassed because of you.” Su Yimo reminded him.
Han Jingru simply nodded with a smile and the man seemed to be completely unbothered.
When Su Yimo looked at Han Jingru’s expression, she dreaded the marriage and wanted to leave him even more. Even if the man didn’t have any esteemed background, at the very least he should have some competence or abilities to himself. It had been three years. She had given him more than enough chances but the man simply busied himself with housework at home. There was nothing else he did aside from cooking and cleaning.
As the two of them entered the living room, most of the relatives of the Su family were already there and it was a lively atmosphere.
“Yimo, you finally came!”
“It is grandmother’s birthday party, why are you so late?”
“Perhaps, did you go and prepare some kind of surprise for her?”
The relatives were greeting Su Yimo affectionately but they completely ignored Han Jingru.
But the man had gotten used to it. It was even better to be ignored than to be insulted.
However, there would always be people who wanted to annoy him. His cousin, Su Ruijin. Whenever they met, the man would try everything to make things difficult for Han Jingru. Not only that, he would denigrate and revile Han Jingru in the most abusive manner. The reason why Han Jingru had such an excoriated reputation in Yun city was all thanks to Su Ruijin. The man was greatly motivated to speak bad about Han Jingru to just anyone.
“Han Jingru, don’t tell me the thing you are carrying is the birthday present for grandmother?” Su Ruijin looked at Han Jingru with a scornful smile. It was just a small box and the man wrapped it using present paper. Just one look and they could tell that it was a cheap gift.
“Exactly.” Han Jingru admitted proudly.
Su Ruijin simply sneered, “What is that? Don’t tell me you picked it up from the roadside?”
Han Jingru shook his head and answered, “I bought it from a gift shop.”
Although the man answered honestly, what replied him was a laughter in the living room. Su Yimo had a pained expression. It wasn’t even five minutes after they reached and she would need to be humiliated because of Han Jingru.
However, most of the time, Su Yimo wouldn’t make any reply. The woman would normally distance herself from Han Jingru and thought of him as a stranger. She would not care how Han Jingru embarrassed himself as long as it didn’t involve her.
“Are you here to make a joke? It is grandmother’s eighty years’ old birthday. Can’t you just spend more effort in preparing your present?” Su Ruijin walked towards a coffee table in the living room and there were all sorts of valuable gifts on it. Just by one look, they could tell that all of them were of extreme value and it was too far apart when compared with Han Jingru’s present box.
“Take a look at what I prepared for grandmother! An aged Pu’er, do you even know how much this cost? Eighty-eight hundred thousand!” Su Rong Jin said conceitedly.
“Wow, sounds good.” Han Jingru simply glanced at Su Yimo. The woman had reminded him to speak less, hence, the man was answering minimally.
Su Ruijin was trying to exalt himself by stepping on Han Jingru and the man continued, “Even just a scrape or small wisp of this could worth more than your present. Do you agree, you scum?”
Han Jingru simply smiled and made no response, but the rest of the crowd was sneering at him.
Although Su Yimo was determined not to interfere with Han Jingru’s matter, the man was still her husband with marriage cert. Even if she hasn’t had any marital relationship with Han Jingru, it would be just insulting for her when the relatives were ridiculing Han Jingru right in front of her.
“Su Ruijin, don’t push it. We know that you are rich but you don’t have to impress us with how costly your present is. And you don’t have to flaunt it around.” Su Yimo said in vex.
Han Jingru looked at Su Yimo shockingly. This was the first time the woman spoke in defense for her husband.
“Flaunting it? Yimo, I’m afraid you are mistaken. Do you think there is a need for me to flaunt in front of this scum? I simply think that he hasn’t respect grandma and that’s all. What about you? It is just understandable that a low born like him didn’t know that he should spend money for a presentable gift. But why didn’t you help him out? Aren’t you used to this scum freeloading on you? Or do you simply don’t care about grandma’s birthday?” Su Ruijin sneered.
“You…” Su Yimo’s face turned red. The woman assumed one of the lowest positions amongst the youngsters in the Su family and she wasn’t as well off as them. The woman just couldn’t afford a present in the hundreds of thousands.
At that time, Han Jingru stood up suddenly and walked towards Su Ruijin’s side and took a smell on the Pu’er.
“What are you doing!? This is the gift for grandma, how can a scum like you take a smell!?” Su Ruijin roared angrily.
Han Jingru’s eyebrows frowned slightly and said, “The age of a Pu’er decides it’s richness, that is the reason why the age corresponds with the price. But there was a lot of businessperson would fake the age to raise the price.”
“Pu’er can be divided into raw and matured tea; the one you have over here had different hues of green and it simply means it is a raw tea. Although raw ones have an edge in the taste, fresh raw leafs are packed with caffeine and it is bad for the stomach. It needs to be shelved for a significant period for it to age. The longer the shelved-life, the lower the caffeine content.”
“But the one you have over here was done deliberately in bad faith, it didn’t have enough time to age and it will definitely harm the body should anyone drink it.”
“I might be a scum, but you are just lower to have given your birthday gift in bad faith and malicious attempt to harm grandma’s health.”
Han Jingru pointed a finger at Su Ruijin as he enunciated every word. The entire hall was pin drop silent!
