What if My Brother is Too Good? - Chapter 234
Huo Wu was currently on her way to a well-known bridal shop in the city.
They weren’t looking for a wedding dress for her, but rather Yu Xinxin, who got a boyfriend during her sophomore year. Their relationship was strong and stable so three months ago, when she graduated from college, the two went straight to the Civil Affairs Bureau. They registered for marriage, and their actual wedding is scheduled to happen in two months.
Huo Wu’s wedding is set to happen the month after Yu Xinxin’s on the 8th, an auspicious day for marriage. After winning an Oscar a little over three years ago, she turned her focus to behind-the-scenes work and became a director. Like Yu Xinxin, she graduated from college three months ago too.
After she confessed to Huo Yusen on the award platform, the two returned to China and got engaged. The combination of her winning the award and engagement had the entertainment industry abuzz for a while.
Huo Wu was very clear on how many catties she weighed*.
*Roughly speaking, this means knowing your place/recognizing your abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.
She won an Oscar for Best Actress, something that no other actress in the country had ever accomplished. Making it even more unreal was the fact that no Chinese star has ever won an Oscar for Best Actor either. So as a newcomer who’s only acted in a few movies, even she couldn’t believe she’d won such a prestigious award her first time while attending this award ceremony.
On the night she and Huo Yusen got engaged, as long as she toasted him, he didn’t refuse a single drink. Naturally, he ended up drinking too much and you could smell the strong scent of wine coming off him.
Huo Wu could tell that Huo Yusen was drunk and estimated that if he drank two more glasses, he’d literally pass out. After returning to her room, she couldn’t resist and decided to carefully test him.
Huo Wu helped Huo Yusen onto the bed, then looked at him and said, “Big Brother, thank you for all you’ve done for me. Thanks to you I won the Oscar for Best Actress.”
Although she was a little nervous because she told him that while he was incredibly drunk, his reply made her feel like she made the right choice by expressing her gratitude right then.
If she didn’t say this, wouldn’t she have missed out on hearing that sentence?
What was it again?
He was drunk and full of wine at the time, but his eyes were smiling as he told her, “For you, I’d do anything and everything.”
Huo Wu’s heart trembled at his words.
Her mind went all over the place, overflowing with shock and emotion.
A different kind of warmth instantly filled her heart, making her eyes prick to the point that she felt like crying.
The words “nothing is impossible” were more than enough to encompass that moment.
She had no doubt about the weight of those words.
Because like he said, he really would do anything for her.
At their engagement party, Huo Yuan had ordered Huo Yuqin to come back from abroad.
When she saw her again, Huo Wu couldn’t be any calmer.
In this life, apart from trying to mess with her reputation that one time in the amusement park, Huo Yuqin hadn’t had the chance to do anything worse.
Therefore, Huo Yuqin hadn’t really hurt her in this life.
In the end, she won an Oscar for Best Actress for “The Swan’s Dream” and got to gracefully walk onto the starry podium. She got the spotlight, applause, praise, and received countless flowers. Her name will always be engraved in the history of the Academy Awards.
And that honor is something Huo Yuqin will never receive in this life. All she can do now is watch.
She had long withdrawn from the entertainment industry and become an ordinary person. Judging from Huo Yuan’s implication, it seems like he intends to let her enter the branch office and just be a rich and idle person. She won’t have to do anything but live a carefree life.
Without the spotlight, Huo Yuqin was actually very ordinary and nowhere near as charming as she seemed in her previous life. She didn’t end up shining in the entertainment industry, nor did Mo Ze end up escorting her to the high, starry podium.
For Huo Wu, letting Huo Yuqin go back to being “ordinary” was already the best counterattack she could ever do.
When Huo Wu arrived at the bridal shop, Yu Xinxin had only been waiting for a few minutes.
As soon as she saw Huo Wu, Yu Xinxin quickly walked to her side and said, “Come on, Movie Queen, help me figure out which bridal makeup look will look good on me.”
Huo Wu ended up choosing a bridal makeup look and bridal hairstyle that was suitable for Yu Xinxin’s face shape.
Yu Xinxin had no doubt whatsoever about Huo Wu’s choices. In Yu Xinxin’s heart, Huo Wu was a trendsetter with an incredible fashion sense.
Yu Xinxin asked the makeup artist to try out the makeup look on her and looked sideways at Huo Wu.
She sighed. “In the blink of an eye, we’re both getting married.”
Huo Wu faintly smiled. “Yeah, time flies.
Yu Xinxin hesitated for a moment before asking, “Your father… no, he… Will that man be coming to your wedding?”
Huo Wu shook her head. “No.”
The Gu family hated that man to the bone. How could she let that person come to her wedding?
When it came to the person responsible for Gu Wei giving birth at the age of 16, it was the first time Huo Wu realized what a small world it was.
Who would have thought that Mo Ze’s father was also her biological father?
And that she and Mo Ze were half-siblings.
But after thinking about it for a while, Huo Wu felt that although it seemed absurd, it wasn’t impossible.
