How do they meet? ....does he asks his father for her hand?
how many chapter is this?
It says there's about 129 chapters.
oh hell yeahhh finally some short stories
It's really cute but then it gets kinda dramatic
Spoiler: Big, messy spoiler
The male lead loves voices and sounds. He has this little yellow bird that originally, was stubborn but later, was trained to sing for him on command. He likens this little bird to the MC a bit because he wants the MC to talk and sing to him. Their interactions are kinda funny, a bit creepy because she's so so young and he gets like weak-kneed when she speaks to him softly and nicely. Female lead is crazy pretty and there's a kidnapping/scary scene which injures the MC and she gets piggy-backed by the male lead. She asks him what he wants in return like her hand in marriage and he says no, just for her to sing for him (because she's young and he's kinda nervous about scaring her away). Anyways, this makes the MC mad because she thinks that he doesn't like her so she leaves and ignores him for a bit.
There's tons of family drama with her dad's family. Her dad's mother was the first wife but she died. Then her grandpa married his childhood sweetheart who becomes MC's dad's step-mother. So the step-mother always feels like her husband owes her for not marrying her first and making her a concubine, even though she was made legitimate later. This is a mess because the grandpa also feels like he wronged the MC's dad's mother so he wants the MC's dad to inherit his title as duke.
Of course, everyone else in that family, the dad's brothers and the step-mother keep trying to persuade him to pass on the duke-to-be title to anyone but the dad. The step-mother saved the life of some soldier who becomes eternally grateful and falls in love with her (when she was younger). This soldier did something ages ago that was awful which I forget right now but it was wrong to the grandfather. Then the step-mother asks him to assassinate the MC's dad when he goes out to war which he does. This leads to the MC's dad and the MC's oldest sister to be stranded on some island for a bit and that was kinda awful. Step-mother never gets any real punishment which drives a wedge between the MC and her dad's family but her dad understands his dad's problems and doesn't blame him.
MC is cute. Male lead is cute. Family drama is over the top as always but it's really addicting. 139 chapters might seem short but the chapters are really, really long. Some parts get a bit draggy but the interactions between the leads and when they finally get together makes it worth it. The MC's maternal side is fun as well. There's a bunch of mini side stories with all of the sisters.
There's a scene when the MC tells her older sister to take off her chest bandage (older sister likes martial arts and can look like a pretty boy when she cross dresses) before her wedding. Older sister says that there's no bandage and she's actually just flat chested. Cue MC being really shocked and the older sister resignedly strips off to show her as the MC talks about how men like big chests and don't like flat chests. MC has a big chest ofc. Then the older sister in her own way, tells her soldier that she's flat chested and if he doesn't like that, then he can leave. The soldier gets flustered and says that he loves her chest and that was heartwarming as someone who doesn't have a big chest.
Any cute scenes between the mc and the ml after they married? ..did the ml spoiled her? ...what wadls people s reaction s to the ml liking the mc?
Is her dad dead then or did the soldier fail to kill him? and does mc's dad gets the fathers title ad the duke?
Also how does ML marry her? didnt the emperor say that he wont marry for the rest of his life?
I read this a while ago so my memory's a bit hazy so I only remember the really striking parts. The ML still does dote on her a lot but obviously pre-marriage is more fun.
Her dad doesn't die. Her dad and her older sister stay on that island so that the sister can take of her dad. Her soldier sails by himself to send news back to the family that they both didn't die. The step-mother's soldier had previously told the family that they had both died at sea and there was already a funeral prepared for them. MC stops the funeral and refuses that they're dead.
The ML was unconscious when the emperor bestowed a consort for him and when he woke up, he killed her. But the emperor spread rumours that the ML was distraught after the bestowed consort's death and wouldn't marry ever again. The only loop around that is that the female lead is taken in as a concubine. Originally, the ML didn't know that the MC was of a high status so he was like whatever. But afterwards, the MC makes it clear that she despises concubines and would never be one and would never let her husband have one so the ML freaks. Then the ML decides to hide his identity and continue wooing her until she agrees to marry him.
ML then comes back to the capitol and the female lead finds out that the prince in the rumours is him and they fight. MC's dad is also upset about his precious daughter being a concubine. And then I think she's he's side consort? A bit murky on how they marry exactly oops.
what happened to the step mom in the end?
Also how did the ML dealt with the emperor? ...did he end up marrying the girl as a legal wife after all?
She definitely does end up as the legal wife because it is a fluffy novel after all, just not too sure how it happens unless I re-read it sorry.
Step mum gets imprisoned within her own courtyard because they're all old and her husband doesn't want to hurt her any more. MC's dad doesn't either but I think he threatened her with divorce. Not too sure after that but I think she might have just been confined in her courtyard for the rest of her life.
by step mom you mean the MC's stepmom or the MC dad's stepmom? because I thought the MC's birthmom was alive? the family drama aspect of this novel is confusing.
MC's Dad stepmum
@smr85 , thanks for clearing it up to me. MTL is good with this kind of stuff.
the stepmom got attack at the temple along w/her daughter while they are praying for MC's mom to have another babygirl or somehow end up in an accident (MC's mom send letter stating that she's pregnant) but they met w/ thieves in the temple causing the stepmom an injury in her arms/hands(?), while the daughter got assaulted-- then the doctor said that the stepmom can't use her arm/hands(?) anymore and the daughter in shock(i think?).
the two sons of the current empress throw blows at each other because of a woman(can't remember her name--she came from powerful clan), originally she's the 3rd prince sweetheart(the ML&MC witness them doing the deed while in the cave in some flower garden). But the 2nd prince rescued the girl when she fell in the palace pond causing damaged to her reputation and the 2nd prince asking for her hand in front of the empress and consort candidates(w/c is planned cause the 2nd prince and the empress wanted the support of her clan. Then on the wedding day the 3rd prince cause disturbance causing the girl to be send to some imperial temple. Then the emperor had a falling out with the queen 'cause of the behavior of her sons. After that the emperor suddenly invited ML to some hunting event along w/ the two prince w/c never happen before (the emperor just really want to make his other two sons nervous, not really for ML)<he's such a bad father>
Well, anyway,. ML use the hunting event for his scheme w/ the help of MC. The 3rd prince got goaded by MC to really tried his best to defeat the 2nd prince in some swordfight competition w/c ended up w/ the 2nd prince wounded then he fainted. The imperial physicians said that the 2nd prince is in coma 'cause he is poisoned w/ the same poison used to ML(prologue of the story), w/c makes the empress suprised 'cause she's the one who poisoned the ML and the poison has no antidote and he gave the remaining poison for safekeeping to the 3rd prince. The emperor is so angry at the 3rd prince for hurting his brother because of a girl. After a month the 2nd prince woke up from coma but he got a mentality of a baby(courtesy of ML&eunuch). Then the empress pursuaded the emperor to alleviate the 3rd prince as the crown prince at w/c a lot of court officials frowned upon 'cause they believed that he's lacking in morality they rather want ML to be the crown prince. The MC pitied the ML for having the emperor as a father. Then the 3rd prince w/c is actually the crown prince now received a letter(ML's scheme) from the girl at the temple, on his way he fall off from the horse w/c broke his legs(w/ the help of ML's shadow guards). At the palace, the emperor find out what happened and the physician said the 3rd prince is now crippled but still the empress insisted that he's still is the crown prince.
The emperor invited the ML to the palace 'cause the court officials insisted in crowning ML as crown prince. The emperor is touched by ML discretion by not coming to the palace unless invited, in his eyes the ML has no intetion of for the throne. When the empress finds out that the emperor invited ML to the palace, she grew agitated that in sheer moment of bravery she decided to poison the emperor so that her 3rd son stayed as a crown prince to inherent the throne(the poison won't actually kill the emperor but more like he won't be able to speak and he won't be able to get up from bed).
When the empress gave the poisoned tonic to the emperor the ML and the court officials caught her redhanded but the emperor had already taken almost half of it w/c resulted him being bedridden and unable to speak. So, the court officials took it upon themselves to alleviate ML as a crown prince and for the emperor to abdicate the throne to ML. The empress and her sons were imprisoned and eventually died while her clan was mostly executed or banished though the empress nephew-- the Shen dude that is engaged to MC's 2nd sister(w/c is actually ML's maternal cousin) was reduced to a commoner.
I'll answer the 3rd question next time, got a hard typing on my phone...ok?
What chapter will something finally happen between MC and ML? The beginning is sorta of slow >.<
can't remember the exact chap but MC agreed to marry ML while her family is in X'ian in their 2nd visit, ML introduced himself as a merchant and gotten close to MC but there is a war on the near border and ML received an edict from the emperor to go to war. ML makes some excuse that he need to go to his hometown to MC that he will go visit their fú in the capital to propose officially for her but MC discovered that ML is the 1st prince she got extremely angry so much so that she said that the person he met and love in X'ian is dead.
Then the MC lied her mom that the ML is dead that he can't come to the fú anymore but the mom knew that MC lied so she asked the dad to find the ML but they can't even traced him in 2 mos. of searching. While in the palace the ML was summoned by the emperor regarding their victory at war, then the ML asked the emperor to allow him to marry again but the emperor condition is that he can only marry a concubine and any child to the union will be put under the name of the dead official wife. Then ML decided to visit MC's fú to talk to her parents whom are shocked to find out that he's the 1st prince especially the dad, MC did not agree to be his concubine including her parents. After that the mom promised to find a good husband for MC-- w/c is the Gao young master(i think?)he's a mischievous young man(one time he wore female clothing to a gathering just so he could talk to MC). Then its been decided that MC will marry him but two days prior to their wedding, the mom brought MC outside to cheer her up but ended being abducted by a group of thugs then ML appears saving the damsel in distress(all planned by ML). Then he convinced MC to agree to be his concubine 'cause he can't take it if she becomes someone else' and he promised her that he'll make her his official wife/princess and take no other woman, MC agreed. Then they go back to the capital riding together in one horse w/c causes an uproar. Then....2 be continued
