ARC 1 (he thinks she killed his mother in a car accident), ARC 2 (ML assumes FL is just like any other lady in the imperial harem aka two-faced white lotus), ARC 3 (FL trapped the ML in a marriage agreement), and ARC 4 (FL caused ML to be bullied in the palace by taking him as a slave after his whole family was executed for a crime).
My deep desire for yandere/psycho ML's has never been so completely satisfied. The ML gets insane. Like, next level some crazy mind games going on man. And I love it.
For example, in ARC 2 his original plan was to execute 4 families and then use FL for the reason behind it due to her 'enchanting' him. After he falls in love with her he decides to change the plan which is pretty bad because there's not much he can do
The FL is makes a painting of a tiger for the ML (emperor) and the scenario goes as follows:
He suppressed the instigation in his heart and glanced at the painting she had drawn.
"I love this painting, it's so peculiar." Sheng Siyu looked at the yellow... unidentifiable object? It was impossible to say words of praise.
When Bai Weiwei heard him, she immediately picked up the paper happily. "Is what the emperor is saying true? I painted it in the morning. This tiger looks good. Although it is not more powerful than the emperor, it can be considered a rare work."
Sheng Siyu strongly
praised: "The painting is very good, there is room for improvement."
The system was stunned for a long time, and finally could not help but open it's mouth. "You obviously drew Pikachu."
Bai Weiwei calmly replied, "Yeah, what do you want? I am so innocent, so pure and childlike, just like Pokemon, come and marry me."
He thinks MC is just someone who wants to use him and he doesn't try to listen to her. Instead, he just uses her for her body. Literally. When she has dinner with a male high school friend, the ML's childhood sweetheart who wants his D takes a photo that looks like the MC and her friend are kissing. What does ML do? Only the most rational thing ever; sit in the car after she's done eating and then proceeds to rape her out of anger and jealousy.
New owner takes over her body in the midst of an attempted rape and kicks the abductors ass. She exits the cave and meets a mysterious man, who I assume to be the male lead, ends up kissing her. He finds her interesting and helps her overcome some issue with her body (translation wasn't clear). She ends up going back home only to be met with the classic back-stabbing family. She takes action against them because they deserve it for being so two-faced and scheming. That's where the translation is currently at.
of a stupid 'sister' (it's always the family)
Fu HengYi slightly glanced at him, which implied as a warning. "If I remember correctly, she's only 21 years-old this year."
Han Yi didn't mind his warning in the slightest, and continued to tease him. "Didn't you know that being an Uncle Loli is in trend right now?"
For example, he tries to block her from meeting her first love constantly which I don't understand because he's literally drawn the line between the two (MC/ML) as only friends since ML is still cares for his first love at that point? (he fell for her because they slept together when he was drunk because she had a soft voice or something like that; who wants to bet that it was the MC that he actually slept with and not the other girl he thinks)
Also MTL'd so I would be able to figure out why the ML is such an a-hole. 157 chapters in and the only thing ML has just realised is that he's fallen for MC. This is of course after 40 wholesome chapters of him getting super upset over MC's interactions with the second ML.
after she becomes extremely pretty because she's the daughter of an extremely beautiful woman (*gasp* what are the odds).
her spirit animals or Nangong (main lead) comes out, and destroys whoever is pissing her off
His main flaw comes from the frustration he has after pursuing his life long dream in aerospace but eventually coming to the crossroad of abandoning of his dreams for financial stability.
My favourite moment comes from when the ML goes to the FL's house after she asks him to help fix her air purifier via her gaming ID and he meets her for the first time in years.
"...." Suddenly Zhai Liang remembered an important question. "By the way, is Cotton pretty?"
This time, Yu Tu contemplated for a while, then answered him: "She can be seen everywhere on the street."
Zhai Liang was a little disappointed, but he still righteously criticized Yu Tu: "Isn't your mouth a bit mean? How can you say that of a girl?"
Yu Tu: "I spoke the truth."
Much later, when Zhai Liang finally saw the true face of "Cotton"..... he was so impressed he wanted to kill Yu Tu... This face... could indeed be seen on the street everywhere, couldn't it?
I did hate that the misunderstanding could've been easily solved but I guess the ML wouldn't have believed her. It's also partially the MC's fault to an extent for ignoring her own feelings but hey, I guess that's what love can do to you.
Karma really hit the ML once he found out about her death. MC deserves to live another life without him because he's not grateful for ANYTHING she's done. Without her he wouldn't have ascended the throne or even made it that far. *massive eye roll*
