After Being Abducted by the General


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Yuan Li was an excellent logistics personnel on the battlefield. One day, after transmigrating, he found himself in ancient times as the son of a minor official. With tears in his parents eyes, they sent him to Chu Wang Mansion to marry to drive away the evil spirits for the ailing young master of the Chu family.

On that day, Chu Hechao, the second son of the Chu Wang Mansion, returned hurriedly from the battlefield, still wearing his armor. Without even taking it off, he performed the ceremonial rites on behalf of his brother and paid respects to the heavens and earth alongside Yuan Li.

Yuan Li caught a whiff of the scent of blood and dust on Chu Hechao’s body, and his heart skipped a beat. He understood that this was a dangerous individual.

That night, Chu Hechao drank a cup of ceremonial wine with Yuan Li on behalf of his brother.

Yuan Li smiled gently and said, “General, please.”

As he held the wine cup, his fingers were as slender as jade, and his handsome face was adorned with long, fluttering eyelashes. Chu Hechao stared at him for a while, his expression a smile but not a smile, before raising his hand and downing the wine in one gulp.

Half a month later, the young master of the Chu Wang Mansion passed away, and Chu Hechao abducted Yuan Li, taking him on a horse and heading straight for the frontier.


Yuan Li continued to exert his efforts on the ancient battlefield. 

He cultivated crops, raised cattle and sheep, cleared roads, and established medical facilities. Busy day in and day out, he fed the mighty army and comforted the wounded soldiers, turning the military camp into a better place. The generals treated him as if they were meeting their parents who provided them with food and clothing.

The only man who had brought him here wore a perpetual scowl, suppressing his anger. “I am the one you married, the one who drank the ceremonial wine with you, and the one who shared the wedding chamber with you. Shouldn’t you be looking at me?”

man. It was okay at first but the author is v clearly xenophobic and ... more>>

MC and ML commit genocide against 2 different ethnic groups, one of which had already joined their country and had established roots and families for 11 years.

the author did portray them as "treacherous" and "ungrateful", but its no excuse for a genocide against the entire group, including women and children and the elderly/disabled, especially since most of the treasonous actions were from the military. They explicitly state after the massacre that 5 counties are now free from the foreigners and there are no more foreigners in their land-

and all this is very hypocritical of MC, who is known for being the only one to sympathize with the common people in the midst of corruption. There are 2 scenes of him coming face to face with the powerful's apathy towards the weak (discovering that another army was using untrained peasants as human meat shields in war, and another of soldiers plundering and assaulting a woman after a battle) , but he sees no issue with massacring entire groups of people left over after completely wiping out their armies of able bodied men. The ML may have ordered the act, but MC was complicit and even supported it.


MC is a hypocrite and its excessively f*cked to dismiss GENOCIDE as a good thing, so thats as far as I go with this one. <<less

So happy that this is finally getting translated! I accidentally stumbled upon the raw version of this months ago and read this raw from start to end in one sitting. Well, I slept a bit in the middle lol but honestly, one of the best book ever! Such a power couple, too. The way they support each other is just so admirable. So many epic scenes, too! Man, specially when the mc

realizes that he wants to become king after seeing how normal people get treated


And how

Even Mc's subordinates

Very much recommended! You won't regret it. I'll read the translated version when this is completed. Thanks to the translator for this! <<less

Our MC gets "abducted" by his brother-in-law to help with army-building because he was too talented.

MC is a transmigrator from birth, so all familial relationships and history are all genuinely his. He is learned and caring, building a reputation amongst his retainers for his smarts and kindness.

ML is the younger brother of MC's husband who is deemed the God of war in various places. Due to his ferocious aura, he made children cry (lmao), but still has to give respect to the MC because MC's the wife of his older... more>> brother.

The writing is very straightforward, and they are very focused on strengthening their army. If you enjoy reading Kingdom building novels, this would be it.

Romance wise, the power couple is blunt in many things, just that they like to skirt around due to the MC being ML's sister-in-law. It wasn't as frustrating as I would've thought, but it did take some time for them to officially get together.

For people wondering, the MC and his husband's relationship :

They are in a business relationship and there is no romance budding between them. The older brother caught sight of MC's talent and used his death to bind MC to the family to help them mutually. MC uses his status as the head's wife to increase his strengths, while keeping his promise to protect his friend's family. They respected each other and parted as good friends. Afterwards, MC uses his husband as a shield to decline marriage offers to focus on work, but it made people (ML especially) misunderstand that they were in love.


My favourite part of this is how the side characters don't get forgotten and they have their own roles to the story as well. The MC's husband's death signified the summary's start, but even after reading 80 chapters I still find myself missing the older brother.

Overall though, it gets a little stagnant in the middle, so I'm taking a break before continuing. My requirements of army/kingdom building novels are a little more strict, but the start of the novel did catch my attention and was very well-written.

The translations are really good, and it was really enjoyable rereading the first few chapters through the translations. Kudos to the translator.

4/5 - as of chapter 80 <<less

At first, I thought this would be a bit boring, with the MC solely focusing on accumulating power with the help of ML. Then, I expected the romance to be bland like other similar novels of kingdom building.

I'm glad I was proven wrong. The relationship between the ML and the MC is fantastic. It wasn't forced, and the author didn't forget about it midway. They make a powerful couple.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. It's been a while since I've come across a novel this good.

I'll definitely reread the... more>> novel once it's completely translated. <<less

The translator did a great job. I read this story in one day, from the first chapter to the last. I was satisfied with the work.
I see the author has many other highly rated works.
Regarding this novel, it is quite popular, the way the author implements everything is quite okay, focusing on agriculture and political intrigues. Maybe because I use mtl, I didn't read these plots carefully. The author is thoughtful about it.
My feeling about MC and ML is that they are straight guys even after they... more>> fall in love. The BL setting and premise are too superficial, used only at the beginning and end as a plot device.
Their emotions and interactions are fine.
I like that they are in equilibrium. The author left the elder brother in the background until the end, which made me pleased. <<less

An underrated gem. It's a bit long but so worth it. This story main theme is kingdom building, how MC and ML start from scratch to their present achievement. They are OP, true, but the world was so in chaos that their OP Ness is very reasurring.

The relationship start a bit slow, since they have a piece of window paper in between, but when it happens, it goes with a bang. They both aren't the shy type so it all progress quite fast with all the filial piety time skip.

I... more>> love how the growth of MC and in the end, how his mind changed once he realized that nobody wanted and cared for the people of the world except him. ML just supporting MC and his wishes along the way, but he is in no way a passive person. <<less

The review section sure is empty for such an interesting novel! I’ve only read the first few translated chapters but so far, so good! The translations are awesome as well, so thank you Lazy Girl Translations!

From what I’ve gathered, this novel has similar vibes to those kingdom building genres? Like “Back to the Beginning of Ming to do Charity” or “Royal Road”.

The MC is basically transmigrated to the past and is able to utilise his past knowledge and apply it to the present. Though it isn’t as obvious, the troop... more>> gathering and farm building is appearing... But what I like about this novel is not the premise but how the author integrates usual themes of historical danmei into this novel as well. The political intrigue is starting to appear and some drama between characters are emerging... so (hopefully) this would turn out to be more interesting than your usual farming/world building novels.


MC: I really like him so far! He is charismatic and smart. Almost kind-hearted but also calculates the profit. He’s the logic>emotions type of guy I feel like. Perhaps even a bit sly.

ML: Usually, I’m not a big fan of aggressive and hot-headed MLs, but I quite like this guy actually! (It may be because the MC isn’t a pushover and stands his ground so their personalities are matched evenly.) He is.. rude but he cares deeply about his people and I’m excited to see more of his character!

A bit early to judge but this story seems to be on the good path. And the translator is quick too! The tls are only speedy but also high quality so I’m very satisfied. 🙏🙏 <<less

Feels alot like ''Back to the Beginning of Ming to do Charity'' But with the system/rewards and also seems less troublesome, you have to admit MC had a smooth ride from beginning till the end. He really didn't face much adversity. All the people with brains hop on to his team immediately, while anybody against him automatically have they IQ deducted by 70%. ML also a teleport door where he wins quickly and get back to MC also quickly, we know there's time skip of months but it just feels... more>> that way.

MC transmigrated since he was a baby, building step by step towards his final goal. The system would evolve as his desire changes. Hes love the common people and is smart, clever with his words. Knows what to do, kind to his followers and have no mercy for the enemy.

ML is just a walking dildo that can fight wars I guess. The guy constantly have yellow stuff in his head. Personality shaped by being neglected at home when he was young. But he's only pledges to MC, they are not even gay, they just like each other like both a straight men but just like each other that kinda the way.

Alot of political, and agricultural stuff explain in details, MC also introduce systems from more advance time and uses Modern day methods to make things for his govern area.

Basically this world treats common people like tr*sh and they have no chance to advance their lives and MC wants to change everything about that.

ML's brother who was a important character in the beginning seems like the only one who could rival MC if he was alive. He died way too soon. There's more about him towards the end though. But then again he was an A hole to ML when he was young so there's that.

The whole marriage/sister in law / immoral debacle is just annoying, his brother should've done a better job with this before he dies. This was main issue in the lawful that gave them headaches. I was also annoyed because it was just dumb to begin with.

This novel is great and I love the MC. Seeing him bring surprises and playing out his plans is so fun to read. <<less
