I overall enjoyed reading this story. It helped that the author had added a note early on to not take the plot too seriously, so I read it while expecting a lighthearted read. Granted, it still had its own emotional glass shards here and there because kids in broken families, but I'm glad everything worked out in the end and it was fairly within reason (or at least it was within my expectations).

What I liked most about the story was that instead of a modern woman going back in time,... more>> it was a woman from ancient times coming forward and having to figure out how to live in the modern world. It was amusing to see Tang Tang figure things out while hiding the fact that she had no idea what people were talking about. Her adaptability was quite exceptional, but I'll let it slide since this story really can't be taken too seriously and one really can't underestimate TV-sensei (great teacher for almost everyone). Though I really wanted to know if her original name was also Tang Tang?

The part that bothered me the most was how the author described Tang Tang's beauty at one point.
Spoiler

First of all, as annoying as it is, I can understand her desire to become better looking for her very good-looking husband and son - physical appearances are sadly how people are judged first. It makes sense that she wants to match her husband, and also not have outsiders say they aren't suited for each other. I totally loved that she became beautiful as a result of becoming healthier. What I didn't like was that she became so beautiful that her so-called friends can't recognize her? Either her "friends" are blind or the author has never seen real people change over the years.

[collapse]

The characters were also told pretty well, and I enjoyed the diversity of characters. Side characters were not just there to highlight the main characters; they had their own stories and personalities that made the overall story more enjoyable. Though, on second thought, there were a few characters that were just highlights even though they shouldn't be. Oh well, can't have everything.

I would rate this a 3.5 - I enjoyed the characters and plot, but it wasn't told so well that I would want to reread the whole thing. Probably just pick out certain funny or fluffy parts. <<less

Story 2.5/5

The story was really interesting until about chapter 40, then I couldn't over look everything any longer but kept on because it was only like 35 more chapters. Should have stopped though, so wish I had. This could have been a great story with a some tweaks.

My complaints:

Not sure why everyone is okay with everyone calling a 3 year old fat. I mean if he is unhealthy it's okay to tell him no snacks because they aren't healthy, but they are constantly telling a 3 year old that he... more>> is fat, fat is ugly, and he needs to loose weight or he won't be handsome. That is not okay! Saying something like that to a kid since young in a society focused on beauty will have lasting emotion scares. Saying "eat healthy and excerise" would have been such a better message. Not saying being fat is okay, but they feed him, they need to feed him healthy stuff in correct portions and have him exercise, there are no need for any comments like that of the parents did their job. The little boy with the girl is cute though.

Next as I said the boy is 3.5 years old but somehow he is doing 3 digit multiplication in his head and can make all these social relationship comments?! The little girl is such a genius she can rebuild anything, she is 3, she literally doesn't have the motor control to do so. The author obviously doesn't know about kids. I am usually okay with suspending some believe when reading novels but this was too much.

The MC was okay, I didn't mind her as much as other low ratings seem to, but I like the sweet type character once in a while. I didn't even mind that as a woman from ancient times she managed to accept and learn things about modern times quickly. She was an okay MC to me.

The ML and the authors comments on the MC is probably what bugged me the most. I swear this was written by a chauvinistic man who wants a woman to be subservient to them. At one point the ML thinks that it's great how virtuous his wife is even though she is ugly and has a bad personality.... what?! How does the main character have a bad personality, she is kind but shy. Also he didn't like anyone woman until the MC basically becomes his s*ave and waits on him hand and foot so he straight up is a chauvinistic pig. Lastly why do all Chinese novels make the live scenes so rough, like it isn't good unless the MC can't get out of bed.

The one character I did like was the the girl that was married to the ML friend. She was a no nonsense, strong woman, who cares deeply for her love ones.

The health stuff in this book is wonky too but it could be a cultural thing? Acupuncture for nerve damage that caused the loss of hearing in one ear?! Then no one thinks to have the MC checked out, her body is obviously suffering from the effects of long term alcoholism but the author's solution is to have her just snack a lot because she is too thin, which is the main issue because it makes her not pretty. Just ignore the yellow undertones of the skin and dried grass hair. Also her boobs are "too small" but no worries this lacey bra and wonder cream will miraculously make her a cup size bigger....

Can't comment on the end because I refuse to give this translation group any money (see below why) but, from what gleamed from other comments it was just the typical dog blood family trope.

Translation 1/5

I don't usually read reviews before I start a series, I want to form my own opinions. This has worked well for me until this novel. I would have never started this novel if I knew the last 10 chapters were forever stuck behind a pay wall, temp one sure but forever a pay wall... no. Not only are they stuck behind a pay wall but they tried to bribe people for 5 star reviews, so any 5 star reviews I would take with a grain of salt. I am not opposed to supporting translators, I am happy to give a kofi or 2 or be a small Patreon, I mean the work hard, but how this site did it is so skeazy. Also there are annoying ads on every page so they are getting ad revenue for sure and their s*upid game announcement at the bottom of ever chapter threw me out of the story so many times. Not sure if it just my browser (opera mobile) but the s*upid "we are excited...." Looks like a paragraph in the story. Do you know how annoying it is to be in an emotional part (when they're in the hospital) and then you read "we are excited..." so even though the actual translation was okay (no explanations of not known cultural things) the site gets a 1 star. <<less

To those who like the villainess wife turned to good wife who only see his husband only like " raising the male lead's son". And the MC is naive type similar to MC from doomed to be cannon fodder except she got lot of strong backup who protected her. But this story is seriously good since the plot is more about the development of a relationship and only the last part had a bit of face slapping. And it not dragging. This story is just right amount of fluffiness.

*Easy to... more>> understand plot-no complicated language or heavy plot.

*No misunderstanding.* Got some third person who like male lead but it handled really well by the male lead.

*Ordinary protagonist- I like this because most of novel full of the female MC is so beautiful bla bla bla. The male lead fall in love at first sight. Please be a realistic that more than 80% in the world are not even in beautiful to death category without make up. The fact that she was ordinary/ ugly turned beautiful was true that woman struggling before being what we are and the male lead is so good. Anyway villainess turned into good wife is just this sort of story.

*PLUS you can read it by google translate or other mtl and surprisingly understand it really well. Yes, it was a PLUS for that! <<less

This review is not about the fluffiness or the villain woman turned saint.

I was enjoying this until I realised the author has a tendency to make the FL as unattractive as possible. The FL keeps saying she's terribly ugly. They way she says it, and the amount of times she says it, gets on my nerves. No one is that ugly, I guarantee you. With cosmetics and hair products, anyone can achieve good looking status - at least even pleasing looking. I'm on about this because the FL compares herself... more>> to everyone around her, especially her "beautiful" husband and son. It's just a ploy to show how much lower the FL is than everybody else. I don't like it.

In the author's other book, she also made the FL as unattractive as possible to make it clear how much above her status her husband was. It's degrading to the woman.

The other thing about this book is that the FL is from ancient times, so her outlook of taking care of husband and children is also from ancient times. I can understand this, and she behaves true to the time she lived in. That's awesome for the plot, but a bit tiresome for working modern day women to read through. At the start it was fine, but now I'm just done. <<less

  • I was about to just rate this without giving a review. But now, I've got something that I can't help but to refute about the review of user named @N01. I am actually quiet surprised as of what you wrote.
    Spoiler

    1st point : ML did NOT bang her. She drugged him for her own scheme. Basically ML was the one who got r*peD. (Yes, this is r*pe. Just because he is a guy does not mean you cant use the word r*pe) still he took her and her child's responsibility even though they came to him like thunderstruck like a grown ass man. He did not mistreat her or disdain her. A f*cking saint with a halo over his head, I'd say. (Even I would never be that nice to a person who made a mess out of my freakin life!)

    2nd point: about everyone hating her. She did walk out of hell. Her life was hellish enough. And why everyone sees her like a she-devil? From my experience if anyone who gives me a

    bad attitude always acts like a drug addict and drunkard, and I can also see she is a horrible mother and a wife. I would not get a good impresstion. It is hard to have one if you put in their shoes. No one would know the bad life she led. Only seeing whats on the surface.

    3rd point : and peoples who knew about her past everyone were sympathetic enough. ML maybe tolerated her for so long because she led a very bad life.

    4th point: justice. Heh. They did tasted their own medicine at the end who ever did her wrong. Even though you might say ML did that for FL but at the end they ripped of a lot of money almost leading those shitty parents family to having bankruped. (Did not took those money for their own use. Thats just plain shameless) I'm sorry if anyone is disappointed that those shitty parents did not die. But this novel is supposed to be a light hearted one. Not a dog blood one with tons of faceslaps and vengeance.

    5th point : a lot of people have shitty life, but not everyone turns out to be alcoholic or hysteric. People just have different ways to deal with their problems. The original owner's way was certainly not good one. And she paid the price. Even though she had a bad life but that does not justify her later actions of how she wronged ML or her child. She also wronged herself. But it is undeniable that our past makes what we are today. But the key is if or how people takes those lessons out of bad experience.

    She could no longer pick herself back up so the FL came to let her go of her regrets so she can reincarnate start a fresh.

    If you think in a way, which character has the most psychological depth in this entire story it should be this original owner. Almost the entire plot revolted around her! XD even though she was not present.

    6th point: about ML thinking that FL was the child's mother. Of course she was, thats the core the core point! Lol. And ML was obviously suspicious of her at the beginning.

An okay story. Warning: MC is from ancient era, so her mindset is husband is the lord, wife needs to satisfy and help him. She's also very easy to get bullied and lied, and sometimes timid either from her real behavior or from her lack of confidence (coz she's from another era). I dislike the adopt sibling married each other route the author gave to the children.

This book is loaded with clichés but I like them all. We never really know why the girl got transmigrated but we can assume that the gods pity her and the original girl so they were given a second chance. This way both of them were satisfied with their lives. I cannot judge the quality of the writing since I MTLd this but I can assure that the pacing is good and the ending is satisfactory.

This book is loaded with meng and sugar so be prepared. Enjoy!

I felt super uncomfortable reading this novel... Honestly even if I am somewhat of a feminist, I don't dislike or despise or criticize this novel because it was truly a well written story with good tightly bound plot, fine pace and nice translation. It had no dramatic plot holes, nor was it poorly written. But I truly felt uncomfortable whenever I read about MC's portion. That subtle inferiority coursing through her actions, behaviour, thoughts left me with a bitter aftertaste. In usual ancient times, women were taken to be inferior... more>> ones and men took it for granted, It was no good but I accept it calmly..... But when I read this story, the meandering clashing between ancient girl and modern world was a little painful for me accept. What MC was doing - being a super caring, virtuous, and responsible wife, cooking good food, stitching nice clothes with ancient refinedness, it was super amazing and regardable in others eyes, but when I compared those praises to her embarrassment and how she took those praises to be lie and small things, how she couldn't recognise her own effort, how she lived in fear of being discovered, self-loathing that she was a fraud who stole place in the family without anyone knowing, and then comparing it to what she had done for family..... I felt deeply uncomfortable, and I just wanted to tell her that she was precious and what she was doing was more than amazing.... Like even if she liked MC, she gained a family that she had always wanted, she was NOT responsible for being so hard working, investing so much emotion and then even self loathing herself. Nobody was better than her, and she was NOT worthless or useless she thought herself to be... She was doing much much better than original host as original host was living her life like in self-denial but she was still there in family. even if MC just behaved calmer, took care of her business and be a little selfish before accepting or not even not accepting the family, it was not her fault. She was also hurt.... she was also killed by her own sister, she was also miserable.... But her new family didn't do anything for her suddenly. Let say at least original owner had also her leg broken, but her situation was that even a care taker in home was scolding her... I accept original owner was problematic, but did ML ever tried to solve problem. Giving her life expenses was probably the limit. I have read in many C-novels, people take marriage too lightly, having a child between doesn't mean there has to be a marriage. It's just trying to build a family without being emotionally responsible. It's s*upid, Single parents are better than a home having two parents, but no attachment for each other, it will just make child grow emotionally mature faster, and somewhat even indifferent to human emotions. Like in ML's family, with original owner present, the child would have grown to somewhat loathe, ignore and even hate his mother. It's not a matter of simply being angry, childhood impressions are hard to forget. So, her being so enthusiastic, forgiving, cheerful and caring towards this new family is just her kindness.... She treated them that way cuz she required love, approval and reassurance. I really wanted to hug, comfort and reassure her on her first day... <<less

This is the first Chinese contemporary romance I read that has cliche main plot, yet not overly shallow in developing it like most others.

Transmigration ✅

Handsome, extremely capable husband with strong family background ✅

... more>> Cute baobao ✅

But here's the catch, there's no overbearing CEO ML who immediately loved MC after she transmigrated and suddenly turned into love-obsessed fool. There's no naive kid who immediately loved MC as soon as she said sorry. There's no goddess-like beautiful figure for MC to hop on. There's no OP skill for her. There's no s*upidly long-winded dog blood drama with family or other women. There's no underhanded works behind the scenes that can only be done by billionaires who spend tons of money.

There's just an ordinary virtous girl with less than average look who always tries to make things work.

If you've done your work reading CN novels here in NU, you'd know that almost all of those cliche plots have very shallow values, so this is quite a refreshing read between all that.

Like, yeah, I'm truly tired of reading CN transmigration novels about an extremely beautiful abusive girl who instantly got all the love in the world and people got obsessed with her right after she changed her personality. <<less

My rating is actually 4.5 stars, but here I decided to round-up thanks to overall sugary sweetness!

I'd describe this as a slice of life novel with a nice flow, it starts with the transmigrated MC having a strained & practically nonexistent relationship with her spouse and child (due to the original MC's behavior), but over the course of the story, you see a strong bond formed and strengthened as the chapters progress. From the ML barely tolerating the MC at the beginning of the novel to truly coming to love... more>> and cherish her. Also, I can't forget to mention the adorable little bun that evolves from an aloof child yearning for his mother's love to a sticky little mom-hogger who's wise beyond his years. All in all, this is an enjoyable read, I'd recommend this novel.

Spoiler

An added bonus is the fact that the little bun has his own romantic side story at the very end, and it's toothache level sweet!! *Rolls around in fluff*

*Important Note* Don't be fooled by the tragedy tag this is a guaranteed HE!!! <<less

not a good experience on multiple fronts:

1. blandly written novel with very questionable messaging where they glorify the return of a traditional, demure, feet-washing wife. The author may have been attempting to communicate that ‘all women should be respected whether they’re a housewife or working wife’ (which I thoroughly agree) but really it seemed to come off as a discontent vilification of the modern woman lol.

2. the romance is literally founded upon the MC being this amazingly dutiful traditional wife who, being the diligent worker she is, is irresistible because... more>> she provides such great food and house keeping services. Oh. And because she’s so cute because she’s so naive and shy (because she’s so traditional).

3. The final chapters are behind a paywall. I didn’t realise this was a paid novel website (like webnovels) from the outset and to be honest it kind of feels like a questionable bait situation. The warnings about the paywall started about 5 chapters prior to paywall, so basically 80% in. Especially interesting since on the last free chapter the translating group ran an event where they paid readers $5USD to give a FIVE STAR review on 5 novels translated by them. Now if it was an event based on a honest review I wouldn’t be raising an eyebrow but... Now it makes so much sense why such a mediocre novel could be relatively high rated and ranked. Similarly, the translators’ note on most chapters has been ‘pls leave a 5 star review on NU’ or something to that effect.

to be honest this novel and whole situation is a little tacky. I think I would be less critical of these practices if the novel was actually good, so take that as you will. At least the kiddos in the novel warmed my heart even as illogical as they were. <<less

This story is really cute and fluffy. I enjoy reading a story with little drama sometimes so this is pretty nice. Tbh I thought that tang tang would be a bit more jaded since she died bc she was schemed by her sister but she has a very kind personality. It's a fresh twist to have someone from the ancient times transfer to the modern times.

My problem is that the plot is a little too convenient. No one seems to question that MC's personality has changed drastically even though everyone... more>> notices. She suddenly knows nothing at all but has sudden skills? That's seriously suspicious. And, based on the idea that everyone thinks MC just lost her memory, the other characters should assume that MC was inherently a good person if she's reverting to a blank state. That should lead to questions about what happened to turn her into such a villain. But whatever, its fluffy and fun to read.

Btw I wonder what happens to the previous owner of the body. She doesn't get any redemption. Everyoje just likes the new MC much better.

Also, I get why tang tang has such a timid personality, but it's always emphasized which gets annoying. She always talks about how ugly she is and never wants to try dressing up. I would think she would try to be prettier because what 18 year old girl during the ancient times doesn't want to dress up? I'm hoping she'll gain more confidence. But seriously, she's probably not even that ugly if she will become a lot prettier after gaining some weight. She probably looks fine but she keeps putting herself down and its a downer to constantly read. Also she is very gullible. She's not 10 years old, she should know that not everyone should be trusted because she literally died from her sister's schemes.

Also how does she know how to make modern clothes so well? They should be completely different from ancient clothes. Plus, she's very natural with her child which is a bit weird cause I would feel at least a little distant from a sudden child I find out I have.

Idk the story is getting a bit bland and less interesting to read. I'm a little less than halfway through and I'm getting a little tired. Its probably still fluffy but the sweetness is being overrun by the lack of understanding between the couple. Plus the updates are slow and I'm not that willing to sit through months of waiting for the awkward tension between them to resolve.

The story is fluffy and the plot is fresh, except plot armor just makes everyone adore MC which is honestly a bit weird. I'll probably keep reading but eh. <<less

THIS. As a fan of these kinds of novels (transmigrated mom + dad who grows to like her + cute child/doting parents), this one reallly hit the sweet spot for me. I LOVE everything about this.

The MC's cute character makes you really want to root for her and the ML isn't a d**k. You could argue he's a Gary Stu, but he seems more indifferent if anything. I appreciate how the MC is "average looking, " because the ML will tend to look at her actual virtues rather than being... more>> seduced by her looks like in a lot of other novels. For those who can't handle the MC comparing her looks with others, I would argue that it's a realistic insecurity. It's RELATABLE. It makes sense (considering the era she came from), and just seems to exaggerate how bad the female character was before, making the ML's growing affection for her even more satisfying.

I don't mind a cliche premise as long as it's executed WELL. And that's exactly what this novel accomplishes, imo. One of the most heartwarming, sweet, satisfying, light-hearted novels I've read in a while. <<less

I felt too complicated about this one. If we can summarized all the good points, then you can read all the 5 star reviews. It's sweet, it's fluffy, it's cute! The baby meng is endless. There just one problem, the original host. Why? Because there's just no justice in it! It's morally depressing and just lack some humanity on all her life!

The original host was switched at birth. When she found out about it at the age of 18, her parents doesn't even acknowledged her and even chase her out... more>> causing her to feel disappointed and remorse. Then the ML banged the original host that she became a complete waste, passing her days drunk. Everyone disliked and hates her like they saw a she-devil walk straight out from hell. And then when the FL came along, ML was just 'You ARE the baby's mother!'. No one even took pity of the original host or try to understand her, not even once. No one stood out to lend a hand on her. In short, it's just not a life worth living. The author just brushed the original host like a freakin' garbage like every stereotype original host in a transmigration novel should be! Even if the author later wrote conciliation of the original host to the FL, it just doesn't do justice!

I could cursed from mercury to pluto with that freakin' logic. <<less

Loved it! Decently paced and sweet. The couple was so fluffy. It had a very beautiful message. MTL was fairly Easy to understand

... more>>
Spoiler

The one thing I hate was everyone kept judging her outer appearance as "ugly". She was just most likely heavily underweight because the OG had depression and consumed alcohol at the same time. Everyone kept telling her the ML deserved better or she doesn't fit into the 'beautiful, ' perfect family in the beginning. The author really knows how to get you overprotective/offended for the FL :) Regardless of the reasoning, it played a lot on of don't focus on only beauty, it's the inside that counts.

[collapse]

Spoiler

The confession where the ML was drunk and told FL that even though people see her as not beautiful/nothing/tr*sh, She was his priceless treasure/beautiful in his eyes. That almost made me tear up. It was beautiful.

The MC is not that strong... Not the type of "you hurt me now I will hurt you"... She is just a caring person whose world only contains her husband and her son (later a daughter in law??)... The story beautifully potrays why every strong man needs a caring wife behind his back... The story is great with a calming atmosphere around it... Sometimes the story gets spice up but thats only for character development

Story 10/10 (for this type of story its the best)

Characters 6/10 (a lot of... more>> 'filler' character)

TLDR 2-2.5 stars being generous and rounding to 3

my peeves with this novel

I hated just about all the characters in the novel. The MC might as well be a Stepford robot with her smile painted on a plastic head. Bland is to strong a term to describe her husband, think Tony Nelson from I dream of Jeanie but without comedy.

... more>> Her biological family and adoptive families on the other hand are just unbelievable tr*sh. It's really painful to read the sections where they appear.

The plot is a mess especially the ending. Just as the characters are a pain to read the plot doesn't improve on their contribution. The ML is a mid level army officer who can derail a multi billion dollar business on a whim, and can produce investigative results in days, but can't stop his career from being destroyed or credit for his work from being stolen. Done to death is the best description for the elements. Everything is recycled with zero new material

Bottom line there;s plenty of novels that do this better. <<less

Dropped in less then 10 ch. It's that bad. The housekeeper it's a b*tch. The kid acts illogical. The husband's friends badmouthing his wife in his face and he's ok with it. And our FL without any memories from the original or anything to know about the original, just assumed that the original was a bad and ugly woman and at foult for everything. (Let put the world's starving on her shoulders too while we are at it no?) Blaming someone for not being happy when she has "a husband... more>> that raise her and a kid" is wrong. That's such a toxic mentality. And funny, it's from that housekeeper b*tch, and she's a modern woman. Nobody has the right to decide what's good and what makes a person happy.

I tried to ignore the "as a woman needs to serve his husband and all that crap and how they refer to a woman as raised, because she's from another time. Ok but I bet even those woman from that time had more self-esteem. <<less

The story starts well and I really like it but halfway through or near the end, the usual plot in any shoujo/josei/BL story happens again where the ML competes on his son for the mother etc. It is cute once in a while but when the same scene keeps repeating it becomes annoying. Also, when the ML falls on MC he becomes the usual overbearing male lead and the MC becomes the the usual shy white lotus female lead ?

The story contains fluff and some dog blood drama. Will still... more>> recommend since I enjoy it at first. For the latter part it's up to u to judge since I'm fed up with the usual plot and with an over bearing male lead. So will drop <<less

I have to agree with most reviewers here. The story is really sweet and fluffy. It is a really comfy read, without too much drama or many misunderstandings.

What I really liked about this story is:

The original isn't depicted as a complete villainess, but is actually humanized. Her poor background and even poorer treatment led to her aggressive behavior, her severe depression and ultimately to her suicide, which is different from many other novels where the viallainous original owner's death was caused by their own maliciousness or some sort of intrigues. Speaking of which, it was refreshing to see that there are only very few intrigues in this story. It is mostly about the slowly growing love between the family of three (although later more family members are included).

However, there are some things that slightly bothered me, which is why I had to deduct some points. My criticism is really mostly based on some logical flaws

Spoiler

I feel like the MC, who originally comes from an ancient setting, adapts way too quickly. I would have liked to see more descriptions of how she actually adapts (not just the inital shock of the metallic vehicles or the strange television). Although she is still mostly depicted as a technological dinosaur, she can still mostly pass as a modern woman (which I find hard to believe). Yet, she should have really major knowledge gaps concerning the modern world and history, and should not be able to communicate that easily with others. She should have had more of a shock seeing all the advancements of modern society: even the most mundane aspects, like running water, electricity, elevators, etc. Should pose a big problem for her.

Moreover, I also feel like most people get to trust her too quickly, and are not suspicious enough of her. Given her prior behavior (alcoholism & extreme outburts of violence), the previous caretaker and the ML shouldn't even allow her to be alone with the child. After all, there were other options available. For example, their relatives could have taken care of the child instead of the once very aggressive wife.

[collapse]

Overall, the story is really cute and very binge-worthy, it just requires a healthy dose of "suspension of disbelief" (i, e. Willingly accepting some illogical aspects for the sake of enjoyment). <<less

I like that she was not loved by the kid immediately since the original host neglected the kid, so this was bound to happened and not just sweep under the rug. They acknowledge that 'she' was not a good mother, but since the MC puts effort in showing that she carrs for the kid, she was then forgiven.

I like that the ML notice that she's a new soul, despite the reality of that being unbelievable, he nevertheless, done smthg to verify his conclusion (like matching DNA and such)

I like that she cooks, and embroider and not some OP MC that can do anything. Or that the body was beautiful despite years of being a smoker and an alchoholic. She took a long time nourishing and improving herself.

I like that the ML was not some OP lead that can do anything. That despite being the ML, he was robbed of his rightful promotion and cant do anything about it. If not for the grandpa, theyd have to swallow this bitter pill. ?


I like that the kid have a lot of screen time ❤

I would have love more extras pertaining to how their life was after the story ends, specially what happened to her business.

To the or!Host, I really feel sorry for her. She didnt have a good life and no one treated her well and guided her. She was pushed to the abyss step by step turning her into complete and utter mess. I just wish she would have her own redemption story to not only correct her sins but also give her a better future.

Great translation ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ <<less
