All of a sudden one of the three maidens that were in the hall had walked quietly next to him and had slapped him hard!
Jiang Le was enraged as he raised his voice, "Who the hell are you that give you the right to slap me?"
But his angry voice began to dissipate as he noticed that the maiden that had just slapped him was equally as stunning as the beautiful maiden that was sitting on the throne.
Up close, she was so captivating!
The initial romance was one of the best romances I've seen in any xianxia. The MC basically acted retarded his whole life and the people in his clan all thought he was brain dead.
The MC was initially betrothed the daughter of the clan leader but because she was too talented to marry the 'brain dead' MC her older sister volunteered to take her place. So the older sister is a few years older than the MC so she feels insecure about marrying him but even though everyone treats him like a retard she still cleans his home for him and brings him food and all that and the romance developes fairly nicely
Now to the part that pissed me off.
You have your cliche "girl gets taken away and MC has to get stronger to win her back" scenario. That's all fine and dandy except after they got seperated and the MC is supposed to be getting stronger so they can get back together the author decided to make this a harem. How he did it is the real issue.
There was a girl that the MC didn't even know and when he touched her their souls became permanently connected.
That has got to be the sh*ttiest way of forcing a harem I have ever read. The author might as well have told me that he touched the girl and she got pregnant. Would have worked just as well for forcing a relationship.
