Contract Marriage


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

Han Yang never thought he would one day sell himself into a marriage with another man. He believed his life would be mundane but that man, named HeLian Qing, broke his pre-planned life. Parental debt, a child’s compensation, he had no chance whatsoever to resist, he has no ability to resist.

* *

He thought this marriage was simply an unwanted one, but soon after he discovered that… his husband’s BODY IS MORE HONEST THAN HIS MOUTH. That man was a duplicitous, tsundere to the extreme!
Han Yang: “Everyday all there is, is my husband’s vicious tongue and my weary heart.”

The ML is a major tsundere. Because of this, he tends to say mean things to the MC but in reality, he's just super shy and very gentle.

One example:

... more>>

Because the MC has a bad health through which he suffers stomach aches and whenever it's cold, his legs became numb, the ML asked his chef to teach him to make healthy soups. When he offered it to the MC, the soup was not at par to the MC's taste, the ML was so embarrassed, he told the MC that it's his new chef who made it. After that, the ML still continued to practice and give it to the MC. He took down notes and even plan to take the MC to a hospital to take acupuncture to heal his legs. Don't worry, the MC later found out and made him love the ML more.


The MC doesn't love him at first. He's the typical studies first, find a job and help granpa protagonist. He has his priorities which makes him lovable. Also, he is a perfect match for the ML because he is calm, while the ML has a very bad temper. He later also found out, the ML might have a poisonous tongue, but was very devoted and gentle. With this, he fell in love with the ML. The parents and grandfather of the ML is also very gentle to the MC. So this is not the cliche parents doesn't like the MC because they're the same gender and is of low status.

Also, major spoiler. *Warning


The ML have loved the MC for many years. He first met the MC at a competion and even followed the MC to his hometown and watched him. He also asked his friend to send the MC's data to him. So it's not a surprise why he knows too much of the MC like how the MC has no allergies etc. After five years, he met the MC again and realized the MC always has a place in his heart so when an opportunity came, he took it.


Well, I'll rate this novel with 4 stars. The story is full of fluff and the ML is funny because he's a full time tsundere. The plot, however, is simple. There's no angst and hard conflicts. It focuses more on MC cultivating feelings for the ML and ML trying his best so that the MC would accept him as his husband in tsundere type of way.

If you don't like too much drama, read this. <<less

It's actually very well translated that the story flows very evenly. There are few grammatical errors, but it's not glaringly obvious so you don't have to worry about that.

The plot so far is also good. Not rushed, but enough plot that you can see where the story is heading. There's already something happening for the first three chapters and it leaves an impression that it makes you want to learn about the story and its characters more. The marriage is not sudden, not like "I see you and I like... more>> you so I tricked you into becoming my wife" sudden but because of unavoidable circumstances (whuch you will know of when you read it).

It's a sweet story with actual plot. I'm looking forward to it. <<less

uwu so cute and sweet ah, , I really liked the chemistry between the MC and the tsundere ML ><


i also liked the character of the ml, even though he always bullies our MC, he really loves him to the point of waiting for him for years. Although personally I think it would be better if there's a bit more information about the past (where ML first saw the mc) nevertheless, it's a good read. Really light and sweet.

It's too much... aaaah so sweet... luv it

'Han Yang grunted in ascent, curling into Helian Qing’s arms, holding the other man’s hand under the covers, “Goodnight, Gége.”

“Goodnight, ” Helian Qing held him, whispering, “my darling.” '

Summary: The MC's parents sold the MC off to the ML in order to pay their debts. Now the MC and ML are in a contract marriage. This is the story of the MC's daily life with the ML.

MC: a third year computer science college student, comes from a poor background, a very tolerant Saint

... more>> ML: a typical cold CEO, a tsundere, acts like an arrogant princess

In the beginning, the interactions between the MC and ML is terrible due to the contract marriage, but after the MC discovers the ML's tsundere side, their interactions become much more sweet and heartwarming. This short story is a great dose of dog food for the single soul. <<less

In the first few chapters, I was kind of pissed and I don't like the ML. But as it goes on, after knowing his mind and heart, I can't help be melted by him! Adorably cute and funny hahaha

At first I was like, 'Is this what you call tsundere? It's a mistake! Heartless, rude, and selfish is the right term for that!'. Then, maybe after 5 chapters, I was like, 'This adorable man is a tsundere to the extreme!!'. Hahaha It had me laughed off a lot.

This is a very... more>> light story, there're no villains actually, not much problems. It just the story of how the MC slowly fell inlove with our ML and ML being a tsundere do his all for his wife.

Recommended for those looking for a light reading! Fluffy and smooth story. :) <<less

I totally recommend this novel for those who are looking for light reading, fluffy relationship and loving kissing scenes (like me).

The characters have strong writing, the plot is interesting and well-written, the progress of the relationship flows nicely and without those awkward phases. The tsundere-ness of the ML could turn you off the first few chapters, but the way MC handles it would make you get used to it, and even feel it's cute at some points.



the intimate scene was very well written and hot!

Well it's full of fluff indeed!... I loved it...

My favourite character is tsundere Qing, who surprisingly also betrays a capricious spoiled-princess attitude which is rather cute for such a macho man lol... and definitely fits his petname Princess Qing lol

Really cute, very little drama other than the two main characters finding their footing within their marriage. Even the big reveal for why the love started was a bit of a muted fizz rather than huge twist.

A very sweet love story. Without villain (well, unless we count the parent), revenge, scums, just the story of building a nest of love lol

ML is making me coughing diabetes with his over over overly narcistic tsundere act XD He has one huge face, no pun intended.

MC is not your naive dependent weak shou, yet still a puppy shou.

Nice reading!
