The villain and the protagonist are a family(5): I want to teach the person who hurt my son a lesson.

---

Zhou Yue Ze did not fully trust Xiang Han. He had a feeling that the latter was plotting something but he was a person with nothing to lose. So, what was there to gain from scheming against him? Apart from his body, he could not think of anything else. Moreover, the housekeeper had told him that Mr. Jiang preferred consensual relationships.

But in the last two days, he had experienced many things that made him see the world in a different light. Even his closest family could sell him, who else could he rely on? Thus, even if he knew that the other man had hidden motives, he still agreed. Jiang Family had power and influence. Under such pressure, he could only endure.

Xiang Han was satisfied, he had finally hooked the protagonist in. From now on, he just needed to properly educate him. As for how to teach him, he wasn’t worried at all. Even if he could not teach, wasn’t there still Big A, Little B and System? He still had this three cheats.

The more Xiang Han thought, the happier he became and even the gaze he used to look at Zhou Yue Ze became friendlier. In the future, this was his ‘son’. Ah, if you look closely, he even resembled Lu Ze a little.

Since this was his ‘son’, then he definitely also had to be Lu Ze’s. In his heart, Xiang Han silently changed his name to Xiang Little Ze. Good Son, in the future, you will follow your father’s surname, haha.

Zhou Yue Ze did not know that his name had already been changed in someone’s heart. After saying all this, he started to list his requests. He wanted to go to school and was currently in his third year, ranked within the top ten in the country’s most prestigious class.

After flipping through the information, Xiang Han sank into silence. Why was it another Straight A student again?

“It’s too late to go today. You can start tomorrow.”

Seeing him agree, Zhou Yue Ze was relieved. Ever since he was shut at home by Zhou Chengxi and sent to the Jiang Family, it had been nearly a week since he went for classes.

On the second day, he woke up very early and prepared to go to school on an empty stomach. But when he reached the front door, he was stopped by the housekeeper.

“Breakfast is ready, eat a little before you go. The Master had guessed that you would stay here and instructed the kitchen to prepare some crab meat soup dumplings. In the past, he never ate such things…”

Zhou Yue Ze frowned. He indeed loved to eat crab meat soup dumplings, how did Jiang Han even find out about this?

Thinking of this, his heart felt even more uncomfortable. But afterwards, he simply let it go and thought, if he wants to check then let him check.

From what he saw, Jiang Han, this person was extremely conceited. If he himself did not agree, in the short-run, he would probably not do anything.

Zhou Yue Ze did not intend to shortchange himself. Now that things have reached this stage, any bottom line was meaningless.

Therefore, when Xiang Han came into the dining room, he felt as though he had been struck down by lightning.

Yesterday, he had instructed the kitchen to prepare those crab meat filled soup dumplings, so why was it in front of that lad? Moreover, there was only one left, one left...

And it was f*cking in between Zhou Yue Ze’s chopsticks!

Xiang Han’s aura was filled with resentment and his hatred rose like smoke. He wanted nothing more than to go up and strangle that person, making him vomit everything out. Daring to snatch his food, are you tired of living?!

Probably because his anger was too strong, Zhou Yue Ze quickly sensed it but after glancing at him, he retracted his gaze indifferently.

Xiang Han could only watch helplessly as he swallowed the last soup dumpling, his resentment nearly taking on a form. He was one step away from blowing out black fumes. He walked forward with a black face, his voice strained as he asked, “Is it delicious?”

Zhou Yue Ze was silent, he really wanted to ignore him. But the other person had investigated his likes and specially instructed the kitchen to make it. If he did not reply, he might anger him.

Therefore, he could only reluctantly reply, “It’s good.”

Good? Good, so you ate everything without even leaving one for me?

Xiang Han was deathly furious but with his facial paralysis, he could not act up and could only tell the kitchen staff, “Prepare another portion tomorrow.”

The old housekeeper was relieved. It seems that the Master really cared for the Zhou young master and not just playing with him.

Zhou Yue Ze misunderstood once again, thinking that it was for him and said, “One is enough.” Even if he liked it, he should hold back, or else he would get sick of it.

Enough your ass, you damned pit! Xiang Han endured his bitterness, not wanting to talk to him anymore.

On the third day, to prevent his crab meat filled soup dumplings from being eaten, Xiang Han woke up earlier.

When Zhou Yue Ze entered the dining room, he had already eaten his fill and was cleaning his mouth, getting ready to leave.

Zhou Yue Ze looked at the table and felt puzzled. Didn’t the housekeeper say that Jiang Han did not like to eat crab meat filled soup dumplings? Had he misunderstood him yesterday?

After Xiang Han left, the housekeeper came forwards and smiled as he said, “The Master probably saw you eating so happily yesterday, so he also ate one basket today.”

Zhou Yue Ze thought for a moment and felt that it made sense.

Xiang Han was unaware of these events and after he reached the office and settled some stuff, he began to listen to the bodyguard’s report on Zhou Yue Ze’s daily life.

Because he had not gone to school for a week, Zhou Yue Ze was called in by his form teacher for a scolding. But since his results had always been good and his performance was also not bad, he was let off with a simple reflection.

Zhou Yue Qing also attended that school. With his body’s condition, he was not suited to come to school but no one knew what short-circuited in his brain, he insisted on wanting to live a normal person’s life. The Zhou Family could not stop him and reluctantly agreed.

Moreover, because of the transmigrator’s actions, Zhou Yue Ze’s reputation in school was bad. Many people knew that he was an illegitimate child. With his good results, he was bound to attract envy and pointing fingers.

As the villain who knew the plot, the transmigrator was jealous of Zhou Yue Ze, afraid that one day, the protagonist’s halo would take effect and snatch back everything that belonged to him.

The transmigrator thought about it, everyone had their own ambitions. In order to continue living and to continue living well, he had no choice but to suppress the other person. He could not allow his own identity to be exposed, and more importantly, could not allow Zhou Yue Ze to return to the Zhou family.

On the second day of returning to school, Zhou Yue Qing came to find him, wearing a face of wanting to persuade him for his own good. In the end, he sighed deeply, “I’m sorry.”

Zhou Yue Ze’s disgust for the Zhou Family had reached the highest point. Seeing Zhou Yue Qing made him even more disgusted. He simply laughed coldly and left. However, he did not think that Zhou Yue Qing’s body would suddenly turn and coincidentally hit into him.

Afterwards, he fell. Holding his chest, Zhou Yue Qing’s lips turned pale with an expression of disbelief.

Zhou Yue Ze thought he was faking it. After all, in the midst of his pain, Zhou Yue Qing still at the energy to glance at him. He chuckled coldly and turned to leave but after taking a step, he was stopped.

“Bumping into someone and leaving without an apology, since when did you become such a person?” Chen Jun Yu frowned and looked at him angrily.

Zhou Yue Ze narrowed his eyes. Recognising the person in front of him, he sneered, “Get lost!”

Once upon a time, they were best buddies. But after Zhou Yue Qing appeared, this friendship turned to dust. The Chen Jun Yu of today only knew how to orbit around Zhou Yue Qing, like his guardian angel.

Chen Jun Yu froze. Then he was furious, grabbing onto Zhou Yue Ze as he said, “Zhou Yue Ze, I know that because you were sent to.... Because of your father’s decisions, you are angry. But you cannot take it out on little Qing, and even more, you cannot hit him. You obviously know his body is not good… forget it, follow me to the hospital and apologise to him later on…”

Zhou Yue Ze was so angry he wanted to laugh, directly pushing him away. “If you are sick, go get treatment. Don’t bite people like a crazy dog here.”

Chen Jun Yu was shoved a few steps away and after regaining his balance, he looked at Zhou Yue Ze in disbelief. The students surrounding them were also enraged. One by one, they came forward to support him. The teachers quickly came over and after learning of the situation, they prepared for another scolding. In the end, Zhou Yue Ze still went to the hospital.

Xiang Han was nearly dozing off when he learnt of this news. Those words instantly made him wide awake and after straightening his shirt, he called on a few bodyguards and arrogantly went down to the hospital.

The Zhou Family had reached earlier and Lu Wan directly rushed into the hospital. After learning of the situation, she raised a hand and slapped Zhou Yue Ze, screaming, “Scram!”

Zhou Yue Ze’s face was turned to the side, blood trickling from his lips, but an unknown light flashed through his eyes. When he turned back to look at Lu Wan once more, his gaze had already regained its calm, without any expression.

Lu Wan saw this and became even more agitated. “Why are you still standing here? After snatching Yue Qing’s father, you still bully him in school. How are you so shameless? Are all children born from mistresses so shameless?”

A few students who heard this started whispering while the teachers’ faces also became awkward as they tried to calm her down.

After Lu Wan knew of Zhou Yue Ze’s existence, she had always endured this anger in her heart. Now, knowing that Zhou Yue Ze had hurt Zhou Yue Qing, her hatred grew deeper. Seeing that he still refused to leave, she wanted to go up and give him another slap.

The teachers quickly stopped her. Lu Wan momentarily lost her footing and nearly fell. Zhou Yue Ze quickly went forward to support her, taking the chance to pull out a few strands of hair.

Lu Wan hissed in pain, thinking that he had pulled her hair on purpose and retaliated with another slap.

At this time, Xiang Han arrived. Using his eyes to signal, his bodyguards immediately went forward and pushed Lu Wan to the ground.

Seeing the handprint on each side of Zhou Yue Ze’s face, Xiang Han wanted to laugh. However, because of System’s reminder, he still held back.

Lu Wan was furious, but when she looked up and saw the person clearly, she could only suppress her anger and ask, “Fifth Master, what is the meaning of this?”

“You hit my son,” Xiang Han told her expressionlessly.

Zhou Yue Ze’s lips twitched, triggering a wave of pain.

Lu Wan gritted her teeth, “He hurt my son. I’m merely teaching him a lesson.”

Xiang Han: “Oh, then I also want to teach the person who hurt my son a lesson.”

Lu Wan forgot how to speak, her face becoming unsightly. Upon seeing the worsening situation, the few teachers and students also dared not come forward.

In the end, it was Zhou Yue Ze who stepped up. In a low voice, he told Xiang Han, “let her go.”

Xiang Han also did not have the intention to do anything to Lu Wan. He simply waved a hand and brought Zhou Yue Ze to leave.

Who would have thought that just as he took two steps, he was stopped.

Chen Jun Yu stood in front of them, looking furious. “M-Mr. Jiang, Zhou Yue Ze’s father is Uncle Zhou, not you. He’s still a student, please let him off. Doing something like this is illegal.”

When his words fell, Zhou Yue Ze’s face turned livid. Chen Jun Yu’s words were simply telling everyone of his and Jiang Han’s indecent relationship. The teachers and students were still at the side. He suspected that the other person had a grudge against him.

Xiang Han quickly recognized him. Eh, wasn’t this the lover Zhou Yue Ze married in the original book? But now… he seemed to have been pulled over by the transmigrator?

He instinctively looked at Zhou Yue Ze whose face was cold. “Just a crazy person, no need to bother about him.”

Saying this, he walked past Chen Jun Yu, leaving with large strides.

Yi, Zhou Yue Ze’s temper has grown! He actually dared to walk in front of him.

Xiang Han let his bodyguards drag Chen Jun Yu away. Afterwards, he began to fret. How should he teach Little Ze to respect his father?

  5. I wasn't able to keep track of the plot for this world until this chapter, but I feel the need to confirm.
    1. The ML is the legitimate son of the family who just threw him away
    2. The illegitimate son is now a transmigrator aware of the plot (still has a heart condition that caused the swap in the first place)
    3. To remain as the legitimate child in the family's eyes, the transmigrator somehow convinced the legal wife that her real son was the son of the mistress and got the father to agree to sell his legitimate son away... To our MC with a horrible reputation...
    Is this right??? I thought I had read convoluted plots before, but WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE. Poor ML.

  11. Many thanks for the updates!

    These piling up misunderstandings are definitely strong in this story XD But that's a mostly funny type of misunderstandings, not the painful ones so far.

  12. Thank you for the update! How sad, having your food eaten. πŸ˜‚

  13. I would also fight for my food. That stuff is sacred.

    There's seriously something screwy with this family's thought processes. The husband not only cheated on his wife but got this lady pregnant, and then he switched up his kids. The wife is part of this scheme. The transmigrator is choosing to suppress the ML instead of becoming best bros with him. If you're going to be enemies, then what's the point of being siblings?
