I am The Villain's Dad - Chapter 44
“Mother, I haven’t seen you for 2 years. Don’t you recognize me?”
Su Yuyang looked sincere, but with a little melancholy.
“Also, you guys abandoned me back then…”
“No, Yuyang. Mom misses you every day!”
Mother Su was also quick to react. Regardless of whether this was her son or not, this person had driven to her village in such an expensive car and called her Mother. She wouldn’t even hesitate to recognize this person as her son ah!
For him to acknowledge her as his parent is a losing proposition, but oppositely, for her acknowledging such a rich son, what’s the harm in that? He has to honor her.
“You don’t know. When you came back, I heard that you were divorced. I was so angry, I didn’t know what I said and did. Now, I’ve forgotten what I did, but I remembered that you haven’t returned for so many years. Mom misses you to death, Mom misses you so much that I lost weight!”
With that, Mother Su sucked her cheeks in, much to the watchers’ embarrassment, to make her face look smaller.
Su Yuyang was almost amused by her, but thanks to his good acting skills, he was able to hold back his laughter.
The family of the original owner was really different from the one he remembered, who only knew how to suffer from everything under the sun. The pitiful sufferings were completely different ah…
The entire thing was about the scum family eating away at the scum man. No matter what, the first thing to do is to take the first bite from the old lady ah…
His mother said she had grown thinner? Even though she looks this chubby? If she really did lose some weight, and she was much fatter before, how fat was she?
With such poor acting skills, the original owner’s eyes must have been blind. Perhaps, he turned a blind eye to it out of family affection?
“Oh! It’s really Yuyang boy. Where have you been for so many years? Uncle missed you so much. Do you remember Uncle? I used to help clean up your urine when you were a child!”
“And me! I used to pass you toilet paper when you were a kid!”
“When you were a child and you didn’t have any food, you came to my house to have a meal.”
One by one, various people spoke out, most of them recalling these childhood memories, with some being unpleasant.
However, it was these so-called kindnesses that they did for him when he was a child that later brought down the original owner and his family, and annihilated the original owner’s illusions of trust.
These people didn’t feel any guilt about it. They were complacent, and kept believing they had done a lot for the original owner, who now should, and must, repay their favors.
In fact, the original owner didn’t even remember what these people had done for him when he was a child. What he could even remember was that when his Father just died, many children in the village called him a ‘fatherless child’. There were also vague images of people chasing him away when they saw him.
However, he liked the feeling of being liked and surrounded by people.
It was something he could get by holding some money. He felt it was worth it and a bargain to have them be willing to flatter him just for his money in hand.
Unfortunately, Su Yuyang was not the original owner. Thus, he stood there, waiting for them to finish, and then turned to speak to them.
“I don’t remember any of the things all of you said, and even if I did, it’s not even remotely close. Besides, even if they were, so what? Do none of your children ever mooch off people’s food in the village? Haven’t you kids visited my house to get peanuts and candy? When you see me, you only know to talk about this? What are you trying to do with saying all this?”
Silence befell them. Indeed, what were they trying to suggest by saying this? Even though all these people mentioned all these past events, they themselves don’t really remember whether they had done it.
However, in the past, when they did as such, Su Yuyang would give them stuff. Sometimes, when he brought less stuff, he gave them money instead.
Now that he’s so rich, he didn’t give them anything. However, he could always give money away, right?
However, what Su Yuyang said was also true. The things they said didn’t mean anything at all. Which children in the village didn’t grow up like that?
“Mother, let’s go.”
Thus, for now, Su Yuyang didn’t want to pay attention to them. What he mainly wanted to do was to clean up the Su family. As for these people who scraped off him before, he will come back to claim favors, and there was no hurry.
“Go, go, go! Don’t talk to these idiots. My son is back, and I have someone to support me in the future. Hey, son, you don’t know, but when you didn’t come back, these people didn’t have any respect for me as an elderly woman and bullied our family!”
Mother Su began to complain.
In the past, every time she saw Su Yuyang, she always said this. As long as she said this, Su Yuyang would feel bad for her. On top of that, she would tell him how hard it was for his eldest brother and sister-in-law. Then, Su Yuyang would give her money again, and later pass more to his younger brothers and sisters, as if the entire Su family’s days were to be cared for by Su Yuyang alone, and the old lady only gave birth to such a son. Without this son, the old lady would be bullied, and all the other sons were ‘dead’.
“Sister-in-law Su, it’s wrong for you to say that! When did we bully you? In the absence of Yuyang over the years, we were all taking special care of you. You’re an old lady, how hard it is to live in this place. Your eldest son and daughter-in-law are only making trouble all day long…”
The crowd refused to quit. Why didn’t she give them any benefits? They all belong to the same village… This won’t do!
“Bullsh*t!! I can see you people clearly. When my son was here, you all fawned over me, but when my son was away, you all bullied me. Now that my son is back, I will never let you take advantage of my son again!”
Mother Su’s argumentative capability is something that Su Yuyang knows well.
Sure enough, she didn’t need him to do anything. She could make these people choke.
In the past two years, he didn’t come back or send money. These people were accustomed to the benefits given to them by their original owner, but it suddenly disappeared. This was equivalent to the Su family losing support.
With the loss of Su Yuyang’s support, the villagers would definitely recall the grievances caused by the former Su family members who previously acted mightily in the village. It would be strange if people were good toward the Su family.
Now that he has returned, and his attitude towards her remained the same as before, it would be strange for this old lady to not turn haughty.
This time, with just a few words, the whole village was made to be in the wrong.
Seeing Su Yuyang standing beside Mother Su with a smile on his face and knowing that she had a backer and could casually defend herself with a few words, the villagers began to flatter Mother Su.
“Hey, just look, you are also educated well. Yuyang, this child, is so promising ah.”
“That’s right. They say that the father bears a cub, the mother bears a nest. This is certainly your ability… The family is so capable ah…”
(TNote: the father bears a cub; the mother bears a nest = The mother’s negative influence on the child is greater than the father’s.)
“In the future, Elder Sister’s business is my business. If any of you dare to bully her, you’re against me!”
For a while, these people’s flattery could almost hit the sky, and Su Yuyang could have even seen many cows flying in the sky.
(TNote: cows flying in the sky = a demeaning term meant for people overexaggerating in flattering someone.)
This isn’t acceptable. If the situation was one-sided, there wouldn’t be any more drama to watch.
“You go back first, Mother. I’ll be there soon. I’ll find a place to park.”
While Mother Su was immersed in the crowd’s praise, Su Yuyang turned and got in his car.
Before she could react, he had already driven away.
“Eh? Yuyang, why won’t you let your mother get in the car? Your mother is still here!”
“It’s not like he wants Elder Sister to walk back, right? How far is that…”
The group of people have been flattering Mother Su, but now their eyes were actually staring at Su Yuyang over yonder.
Seeing that the protagonist had left, why would they still pester Mother Su? This woman was old, yet unappreciative. She has always been a lazy shrew, and talking to her was useless.
They had to find the right person.
“Yuyang! You child, just ask your Mom for a parking space. You haven’t come back for so long. Won’t Mom be more familiar with it? Mom knows that you are afraid that Mom would get tired, but Mom isn’t tired! How can a mother be tired when she is doing something for her son!?”
Mother Su saw that Su Yuyang’s car had already left, and suddenly she felt embarrassed and humiliated, so she hurriedly shouted aloud.
However, Su Yuyang’s car had traveled far away, so he couldn’t hear what she said.
Nonetheless, it didn’t really matter, as what she said wasn’t meant for Su Yuyang to hear.
“Aiyo… Yes, Yuyang is such a filial child.”
The people themselves had already put her on a pedestal, so how could they keep Mother Su from coming down? When the time comes, what will the old lady do for them?
No matter what Su Yuyang wanted to do or what attitude he had towards his mother, they will know when they see it later. Why should they go against the old lady so early? Even more than that, the potential money from Su Yuyang would motivate them to do so.
Soon, Su Yuyang’s car stopped, and he scrolled over his text messages from the company in the car. Shortly after, Mother Su returned, a large group tagging along behind her.
In the Su family courtyard, Eldest Brother Su, his wife and son were still engaged in a violent quarrel. Su Yuyang opened the window and listened for a while, closed it, and stayed put, not interested in getting involved.
When Mother Su came over, she also heard the voices in the yard, her face turning unpleasant.
These two family losers, quarrelling every day isn’t enough. Today, his brother is back, and they are still fighting! Now, the entire village is here to see the joke. Aren’t they embarrassed!?
It really pissed her off.
She didn’t dare to call out to Su Yuyang first. Who knows how long her second son has been here? How much has he heard? He didn’t come out too, so it must be that he doesn’t want to hear it, right?
(TNote: reminder, Yunyang is the second son.)
As she walked along, she slammed the door open and shouted.
“What’s all the noise? Don’t you think it’s embarrassing? If you can’t live like this, get out of my house! We don’t need a daughter-in-law in the Su family either!”
With the second son here, what kind of daughter-in-law won’t her eldest son be able to get? Why would he need to be with such a shrew?
“Ha! Mother, are you not ashamed to say that? Also, your Su family doesn’t need a daughter-in-law?! Who was it that married three brides? Each of them didn’t realize what your family is like before they married! Just by coaxing, by deception, harming other innocent girls! Then, once they enter the door, you change your faces and bully people. Isn’t that so?”
The eldest daughter-in-law was no slouch. When she heard Mother Su’s words, she exploded and turned her anger towards her mother-in-law.
Anyway, her man, that waste, had been cleaned up by her. Also, his old woman usually hides and doesn’t come out. Did she take the wrong medicine today?
How dare she bring back so many people and resent her when the two of them were fighting?!
So what if she dislikes her! Will she still be afraid of her? If the people of the Su family village dare to reach out and touch her, she can make every bachelor in their village stay single. No daughter-in-law will marry into the village in the future!
“Bullying? I don’t know who is bullying who! Our eldest is a good man, and you bully him into this wilted state! Are you a woman at all?”
With someone to back her now, the old lady’s temper was worse than usual. Her waist hardened!
The eldest daughter-in-law grew silent. If her mother-in-law started talking like that, there could only be one possibility. That is, when her second child came back. The question is, what’s the use of that waste of a second child coming back now?
