Chapter 37 – The Unlucky Yang Rong
Hearing how Yang Rong and Chu Tian swore, Bai Xiaochun was unable to contain herself and allowed her laughter to run wild.
After laughing, she said, “The two of you, one’s unable to be married and the other’s unable to get a wife. That’s a perfect match. The two of you merely need to get together and the problem will be solved.”
Black lines rolled down Yang Rong’s forehead as she looked to Bai Xiaochun, “And here I was wondering what you were laughing about. How bored are you? How can you laugh at something like that? Hurry up, it’s your turn now.”
Bai Xiaochun began to think. She still had a smile on her face, “Then, if I am to lie in the Fight the Landlord: Truth Edition, I wouldn’t be able to be married either.”
“Tsk, you ended up swearing the same thing I did,” Smiling, Yang Rong raised her middle finger at Bai Xiaochun. Then, the three began playing Fight the Landlord.
In the first round, Yang Rong was the Landlord. She lost. According to the rules, she needed to answer a question from Chu Tian and Bai Xiaochun each.
With a beaming smile, Bai Xiaochun pondered for a bit before asking, “Rongrong, how many boyfriends have you had?”
Yang Rong: “Two. One’s during my third year of junior high. It didn’t last long. As for the second boyfriend, you all knew about him. I began dating him during my second year of high school. We’ve been dating the entire time. Answer complete. Deskmate, your turn to ask now.”
“Hmmm…” Chu Tian pondered for a bit, “Why did you break up with your first boyfriend?”
“Because we didn’t suit each other,” said Yang Rong, “That’s too simple of a question.”
“Wait a minute. You call that an answer?” interrupted Bai Xiaochun, “Why don’t you suit each other? You need to at least explain the reasoning behind it.”
“Fine, fine, fine,” Yang Rong laughed before biting on her lower lip, “It’s just that… he’s too, you know… He’s always touching me. And I, I don’t like it. Because of that, we ended up breaking up.”
“Ah?” Bai Xiaochun spoke with surprise, “That’s the reason? The two of you were dating. You’re in a relationship. If he doesn’t touch you, who else would he be touching?”
“I just don’t like being touched like that at that time,” said Yang Rong, “Regardless, I was only in my third year of junior high. That relationship is purely having fun together. We weren’t thinking too much about it.”
“Okay then. I guess we can consider you having answered our questions,” laughed Chu Tian, “Come, let’s start round two.”
Soon, the second match ended. Yang Rong was the Landlord again. The result was the same, she lost again.
“What the hell?!” Yang Rong tooted, “Why did I lose again?”
“Hey, you better keep your promise since you’ve lost. Don’t act like a sore loser,” laughed Bai Xiaochun.
“Rest assured. I’m someone who keeps her promises,” Yang Rong rolled her eyes, “Go ahead and ask away. I’m not afraid of anything.”
Smiling gleefully, Bai Xiaochun pondered for a bit, “How far have you progressed with your current boyfriend?”
“Pff,” Yang Rong laughed, “Really now you… We’ve been dating for two-three years. It’s only natural that we’ve done all that should be done. You couldn’t possibly expect that we’ve only been holding hands and giving pecks to the mouth, right?”
“Oh… I see,” Bai Xiaochun smiled as she nodded her head.
“In that case, when was your first time?” asked Chu Tian.
Yang Rong’s eyes narrowed. She looked to Chu Tian, “Deskmate, you should carefully consider your questions. While the river might flow east for thirty years, it could flow west the next thirty years. It’s best to not push me too far just because I’m on a losing streak right now. At some point, I will have a win. Are you sure you want to ask that question? It’s best to keep some grounds so that things can be discussed peacefully in the future. Make sure to think this carefully.”
“Hey, hey, hey,” said Bai Xiaochun, “Classmate Yang Rong, please watch your attitude. Why are you starting to threaten people?”
“And you!” said Yang Rong, “Once I catch you, don’t think I’ll let you off that easily.”
“Speak!” laughed Bai Xiaochun, “Chu Tian already asked the question. Don’t forget, you’ve sworn on it.”
Yang Rong pondered for a bit before responding unwillingly, “It’s… second year of highschool. After we’ve been dating for two months, it happened.”
“Oh, so it’s during second year of high school. That’s quite early,” said Bai Xiaochun with a mischievous smile.
“Enough of your bullshit,” Yang Rong said, “Come, let’s start round three. I refuse to believe I will keep losing.”
Several minutes later. Yang Rong spoke in defeat, “What the hell is with this?! My hand was so great! How did I lose again?!”
It was unknown why Yang Rong’s luck was so bad today. She was the Landlord again in the third match. Yet, she lost again.
[1. Landlord generally have a higher chance of winning because people usually refuse to be the landlord if their hand isn’t good. Furthermore, the 3 additional cards will generally boost one’s hand, allowing for an easier win. The opportunity to become the landlord then goes to the next person. If no one takes it, the initial player will be the landlord.]
Chu Feng and Bai Xiaochun were dying with laughter.
It was truly fun to target a single person.
“Quickly ask what you want to ask,” Yang Rong rolled her eyes, “After that, we’re starting round four.”
Laughing, Bai Xiaochun pondered for a bit before saying, “Don’t be in such a rush. Let me think about it. Hmmmm… have you thought about changing boyfriend?”
“Never,” said Yang Rong, “My boyfriend and I have always maintained a very good relationship. Not changing. Deskmate, your turn now.”
“I’m truly at a loss as to what to ask,” Smiling, Chu Tian began to ponder, “How about this. Tell us about the one thing you considered to be the most embarrassing. Remember, it has to be the most embarrassing.”
“It’s…” Yang Rong thought about it for a bit, “During third year of high school, I was making out with my boyfriend at home. My mom caught us. It’s extremely embarrassing.”
“Ah?” Bai Xiaochun’s eyes grew wide open as she laughed, “There’s such a thing? Tell us about it.”
With her face completely red, Yang Rong glared at Bai Xiaochun, “We were studying together. His grades were better than mine so he came to tutor me on my homework. Then, we grew tired of studying and… decided to have some fun. But, my mom just so happened to return home and discovered us.”
Bai Xiaochun held her stomach laughing. She was laughing so much tears were about to come out of her eyes.
With her face still red, Yang Rong rolled her eyes, “What’s so funny?! Enough of this, move on to round four! I’m definitely going to win this round! Hurry up!”
