Starting Afresh

Okay, but where\'s Alex?

nyone who knew him well could see in an instant he was walking half his usual speed.

It was unknown why he had taken a liking to the poor abused girl, but it mattered not. Even if her parents or abusers saw her following him, there was nothing they could do, for that was the gap between the powerful and the weak.

At some times, he would walk faster, and at other times hed stop walking faster, but one thing was for sure: he never slowed down.

As he broke out into a jog, the girl who was lagging behind had broke into a run. It was clear how desperate she was, and it was much clearer how much he wanted to torture her.

As they approached the mansion, he finally stopped running and looked behind at the poor girl who recently vomited her guts out. He felt no pity for her situation and walked into the mansion.

”young master! Is this person a guest of yours? ” asked the guard at the mansions gate.

”no, ” he replied sarcastically. ”she is my new personal servant. Get her cleaned and fed. If anyone dares to lay a hand on her, cut their hands of and scatter the ashes of their ancestors. ”

”y-yes, young master. ”

”and when you
e done with her, send her over to the mistress. Make sure she gets properly taught. Ill check up on her in three months. Just make sure none of the bastards know about her. ”

He walked into the old house and went to greet his grandmother. As usual, she wasn allowing any visitors, so he went to see his father.

”father, I am home. ”

”the trash of our family is here at last. ” responded father.

”the trash that you and your wife have created. And yes, I am here. ”

”so what do you want? ” asked the huge man who towered at an astounding ten Chi (one Zhang).

”do you want me to kill a person? ”

”its nice how you catch onto these things that quickly. If only Jia Shuaqi De Mingzi was as smart as you. ”

”well you still love him more. Now answer my question. ”

”I will, but I heard you brought a beggar into the old house? What will you do when mother-in-law finds out? ”

There is no reason to run in circles, is there? If so, why does he do this?

”in three months, the beggar will become my personal servant and grandmother is too sick to do anything right now. ”

”I want you to marry the princess… ”

So this is why he was running around so much. Unfortunately for him, I won do as told.

”has our engagement decided? ” I asked with a small smile.

”no, but that is precisely what the royal family is visiting for. ” replied the ten Chi giant.

If the princess doesn want the marriage, we can both make a scene and cancel it. If she wants the marriage, Ill have someone defile her and make a bigger scene.

”I know what you are thinking, fatty. Don even think about breaking off your engagement. ” he said as if he could read minds. ”the emperor wants to strengthen the relationship with our Jia family since the army has gotten much stronger after the thousand year war ended. ”

”so if he uses marriage to bind our families together, our Jia family can use any military power against the imperial family. ”

”it goes further than that. Since we control more than 70% of the empires forces — a hundred and fifty thousand soldiers and half the elite forces in the empire — the emperor is scared we will overthrow them. ”

”then why don we overthrow the royal family? Won that be more profitable? ”

”because of the aftermath. Its too dangerous for us at the moment, and the emperor is tired of having to constantly monitor our movements, so hes binding us with marriage. ”

”can the princess not marry Jia Shuaqi De Mingzi instead? ”

”no, she must marry you. ” he replied instantly.

”is it because I am the oldest legitimate child? ”

”since you are done, get out and let me do my work. ”

If he won answer, it seems that neither me nor the princess are in a position to decline this marriage.

I walked out of the building which was my fathers office and made my way to the courtyard.

As I neared my room, a small figure blocked my path: the sixth bastard.

Its hard to believe my father is pumping out kids as if he is twenty, but my unimportant and soon-to-be-dead 25 siblings seem to disagree. Well, minus Shuaiqi, so 24 soon-to-be-dead siblings.

Luckily only me and Shuaiqi are legitimate children, otherwise, succession would get really messy.

”Pang Pang! ” screamed the lovely little girl who blocked my path.

”dumpling! ” I screamed back before running to embrace her.

”my name is not dumpwing! ” said the little 6 year old as she tried pushing me away.

”why? You are pretty round, fat and soft. ” I say as I stretch her dumpwing-like cheeks.

”hmph! I hate you, fatty! Ill never talk to you again! ” shouted the little dumpling.

”okay okay, big bro is sorry, can you forgive him, little Jiaozi? ”

”Jia Jia is NOT a dumpling! ” she screamed as she ran off.

”haha. If only everyone else is as fun as Jia Jia. ” I chuckled.

I opened the door to my room and started to change.

My hair usually gets in the way of I do everything, but I like to keep it down since it looks nice. My grandmother on the other hand seems to think I am filial. Well I am the oldest, so it isn unnatural for her to be biased.

Damned coot. Why can she just die already. She coughs up so much blood every day with low blood pressure, yet she keeps living for so long!

I guess she wasn lying when she said she would only die after seeing my wife.

Leave it. It does no good wishing for her death. I should just lie down, skip evening class, eat dinner, sleep and torture that rat.
