A young woman confronted her future sister-in-law at a party – turns out there might be more to their history than first thought!
A Shock Engagement
OP is a woman in her mid-20s whose older brother recently announced he was engaged to be married.
That was a shock to the family, because no one realized he’d even been dating anyone.
Plans for a Big Reveal
Even after his announcement, OP’s brother had been pretty secretive about his bride-to-be.
But he planned to unveil her at an upcoming family party.
The Grand Entrance
When the young couple made their grand entrance, OP’s jaw hit the ground.
It Was Her Former Friend
The girl her brother was marrying had once been one of her own friends.
In fact, all the way up until their junior year of high school, OP and her future sister-in-law were very close.
She Had Made Highschool a Nightmare
Then the other girl started to spread nasty false rumors about OP.
That pretty much ended the friendship, but the other girl continued to spread lies about OP right up until they graduated.
Not only had OP lost a friend, the best years of her high school career had been ruined.
No Friend of Mine
After graduation, the girls went their separate ways, each attending a different university. As it turned out, OP’s brother had attended school with her nemesis.
A College Encounter
And that’s where the two had met, setting a course for a sticky reunion between OP and the bride-to-be.
Not long after the brother showed up at the party with his fiancé, he pulled OP aside and they went to another room to speak in private.
Love at First Sight
He explained to OP that he had met his girlfriend at a party and fell in love at first sight.
He insists he didn’t recognize her until he found out her full name later on.
Bride-To-Be Was a Known Bully
The torment OP endured in high school had been bad enough her entire family knew about it, and they all knew who the perpetrator was.
So, when her brother realized who he was dating, he knew there was big trouble ahead.
It Was Too Late
But by then it was too late, and OP’s brother was head-over-heels.
OP’s brother also tried to convince her that his fiancé truly didn’t remember the pain she had caused OP in high school.
She’d Stay Calm and Avoid Her
OP wasn’t buying it, but she decided to head back to the party and just try to keep calm.
She thought ignoring her brother’s fiancé would do the trick.
She Was Asked What She Thought of the Engagement
But at the dinner table, one of OP’s aunts asked her how she felt about her brother getting married. When OP tried to change the subject, the aunt kept pushing and pushing until OP broke.
She Told the Truth
Finally, OP said she didn’t feel too great about her brother marrying the girl who had made her high school life so miserable.
She Fled in Floods of Tears
Everyone turned to look at the fiancé, who burst into tears and ran out of the room. Naturally, OP’s brother chased after her.
You’re So Petty, Get Over It
Later on, the brother called OP to read her the riot act and tell that she was being petty over long-gone high school drama.
She Didn’t Recall the Torment
He still maintained that his fiancé didn’t even remember there being a problem.
Her Bro Wanted HER to Apologize
OP’s brother also demanded that she apologize to her former bully for embarrassing her in front of the family.
She Should Have Been Warned
But OP stood her ground and told her brother that he blindsided her. She also said that his fiancé should be the one apologizing.
Could They Ever Reconcile?
Now the two siblings are at an impasse, and OP is worried that their relationship might not recover.
Bullies Don’t Forget
Nearly all the Reddit commenters support OP and her position.
Many of them are pretty sure that the bully does in fact remember being the bully and is just trying to deflect now that the tables are turned.
He Did Her Dirty
Most Redditors also think OP’s brother really did her dirty by showing up with her tormentor before telling anyone who she was.
