Chapter 7

Why Should I Hide From Them?

Initially, Qin Zhenzhen didn’t fully immerse herself in the novel because the original character was merely a nameless cannon fodder. She had only used the Qin family as a subst.i.tute.

In the novel, the description of the villain’s past was brief, as it wasn’t the main focus of the plot.

Due to Su Bin’s striking good looks, he had unfortunately caught the infatuated eye of Qin s.h.i.+ when he was just 16 years old and was forced into marriage.

However, because he despised Qin s.h.i.+, he never consummated the marriage. He spent two months staying at the academy and didn’t return home.

Qin s.h.i.+ had gone back home and cried, prompting her four brothers to come up with a scheme. They fabricated a story that Su Bin’s sixth sister was gravely ill, deceiving Su Bin into coming home to demand an explanation.

Unexpectedly, on the day Su Bin returned, Qin s.h.i.+ accidentally died while kowtowing in the courtyard. Her four brothers happened to be present and concluded that she had been killed by Su Bin’s family.

With the Qin brothers harboring intentions to avenge Qin s.h.i.+’s death by killing Su Bin and burying him alongside her, Su Bin’s second brother and younger siblings naturally stepped in to protect him.

In the ensuing chaotic confrontation, one of the Qin brothers suffered a life-threatening stab wound to the waist. He never regained his mobility and remained bedridden.

Fearing legal repercussions, Su Ping had no choice but to flee. In the end, he sought refuge in the mountains and became a bandit leader, leading his men in acts of arson, murder, and plunder. Ultimately, he met his demise at the hands of the male lead in the book.

The Qin family suffered significant losses, but they couldn’t successfully convict Su Bin. Their only option was to seek compensation for the damages incurred.

Su Bin was compelled to compensate the Qian Family Village with their house and land, which he had to rent out. With his younger siblings, he relocated to a small rented house in the county.

Besides his studies at the academy, Su Bin had to engage in various odd jobs, such as copying books for bookstores and creating drawings for others, just to make ends meet and support his family. Their days were filled with financial constraints and hards.h.i.+ps.

As for his fifth brother, Su Cheng, who used to enjoy farming, he found himself with no purpose in the county city after losing their land. In an unfortunate turn of events, he unwittingly became involved in theft and was caught, ultimately meeting a fatal beating.

Su Qing, their fourth brother, had been an apprentice in the county’s opera troupe. While he was well-fed during his apprentices.h.i.+p, he never received any wages. However, during the chaotic confrontation, Su Qing discovered that the Qin brothers had grievously injured him, causing permanent damage. This incident left him mentally unhinged, developing perverse tendencies.

Su Ning’s situation was relatively better. With Su Bin’s rise in power, she transformed into a wealthy young lady.

However, in the novel, she played the role of a lovestruck supporting character who became infatuated with the male protagonist’s beauty and directly opposed the female protagonist. She faced severe torment and was subjected to a merciless beating by the female protagonist. In the end, Su Bin himself met his demise at the hands of the male and female protagonists, acting in unison.

As these thoughts flooded Qin Zhenzhen’s mind, she couldn’t help but feel a growing sense of unease.

Amidst the tension and uncertainty, Qin Zhenzhen observed the situation unfolding before her. The original host’s brothers were on the verge of arriving, which could potentially lead to a chaotic confrontation as depicted in the plot.

However, Qin Zhenzhen’s presence as the new host might alter the course of events. The probability of the brothers impulsively wanting to kill Su Bin would likely decrease now that they saw their sister alive.

Nevertheless, the fact that Su Bin had distanced himself from the original host after their marriage was a significant issue. If this matter were to escalate, it could easily result in a confrontation.

Qin Zhenzhen’s mind raced, considering the best course of action. If a fight were to break out, the situation would undoubtedly spiral out of control.

In an instant, these thoughts surged through Qin Zhenzhen’s mind, and she understood the imminent danger.

Before Su Bin could enter the house, his fourth brother, Su Qing, rushed back in a panic.

Upon seeing Su Bin, Su Qing urgently grabbed his arm and pulled him aside. “Third Brother, quickly retreat to the backyard and hide! Her four brothers and two sisters-in-law are on their way here. I fear they might intend harm upon you!”

Knowing that his brother and sister-in-law had never consummated their marriage, Su Qing deduced that their arrival was likely related to this matter.

Su Bin forcefully shook off Su Qing’s grasp, his expression darkening. “Why should I hide from them?”

He had already allowed Qin Zhenzhen to join the Su family and granted her a certain status in order to preserve her eligibility for the county examination. What more did they want from him?
