It was supernatural, in the literal sense, and full of sweetness and love. I like how their relationship developed. Also the children were quite adorkable. The side CP is a plus. Great read and kudos to the translation works of Chrysanthemum Garden team!

The synopsis and the main story is abit different. But overall is a cute sweet love story. Most of the story plots about taoism and supernatural and mix in futuristic setting in abo world which is quite refreshing. As a Chinese background I can relate to most of the rituals and the taoist beliefs. So I enjoyed the nostalgic knowledge. The fluff with the the main and side cp were cute and wholesome. So it’s a very enjoyable read for me. Thank you.

It has nothing to do with red flowers at all!! :'D That title is so misleading, that I legit waited for a fair amount of chapters when it'll come around, but the story is actually very different from its' summary and that's why I think it should be either changed or expanded.
Basically, the story involves the integration of long-forgotten metaphysics within highly-advanced ABO society due to our MC, Le Yao, jumping into the future and replacing the original omega, his gland is damaged due to drug he took, which... more>> was shoved to him by his scheming stepmom/son combo, he faces "unwanted" marriage, but decides that it's better to leave the house where he faces danger and rely on his designated alpha, not to mention that he actually needs to leave the planet. He moves to a planet, Huaxia, which now suffers from weather cataclisms and is stationed with his new husband, a young general, leading their empire's forces, Flying Wolf Devision. Le Yao isn't a simple character, in his last life he learnt metaphysics. His main purpose of travel was to find his deceased friend and later with his skills become independent, yet things don't really turn as planned, his skills soon come to light, because Huaxia is a place of fierce battlefield, holding unsolved grudges. That's how he finds his place in this new world with the support of his husband.
Now. The overall story won't be anything dramatic (no real knives), it's an easy, unnecessarily stretched and sweet story with little amount of potential drama, which is solved rather quickly, it's a rather interesting take/combo (ABO+ghosts, I mean). ALSO, it is a slow starter, there's a lot of not needed details before things get relatively interesting.
P.S. Red flowers have little to do with the story, it passes really quickly. What was author thinking naming it like that.

P.P.S. Personally I think this novel is enough to read once. And if you don't get hooked and don't find it interesting, stop and move to something else, you won't lose anything. <<less

The author seems to choosing theme with roullete or prompt generator... Because it is reincarnation, to the modern futuristic world, in ABO world, happens to someone with superstition knowledge who can call ghost aka Xuanxue people... It's too interesting to miss!

ML seems wary with MC but at the same time... warming up to him? Idk when the summary will happen but that will be hilarious when it happens. Because the story is lightweight and fluffy :3

If you like something light & sweet to read, then you might enjoy this story.

Though it's not as fast as some BL, ML still took immediate interest on MC for I don't know what reason.

It's pretty much a bunch of fluff moments between ML & MC after they live together.

... more>> But I just can't fully immerse myself into the story with the insane amount of supernatural in this story.

For me, it just feels weird how they're in a futuristic setting with added ABO and yet it has a lot of focus on ghost, spirits, rituals etc.

It also give me the feeling that the author crammed too many genre in this story that some of those genre/tags doesn't mix up really well with each other. <<less

Spoiler

the flower thingy appeared only in a brief manner. As for the bullying mentioned, it was the ML who bullied MC first, well in a cute and funny way. Side. The side characters and ML were wary at MC at first but they warmed up to him pretty quickly in the story.

[collapse]

MC and ML had a good relationship, it has a supernatural theme to it but it is more on feel good supernatural rather than scary gruesome.

Also the story is more of a slice of life for me as there is not much conflict aside from MC's side of the family. MC has a stepmom, stepbro and biological father plus cliche and you get the conflict.

Over all a pretty straight forward feel good type of story

Also there is a sudden surprise in the story.

Spoiler

MC and ML are a couple in their past life and even had a child. Both also are some underworld noble.

It came out of nowhere but still pretty good. <<less

This story isn't much different from the author's other work [Begging You To Break Off This Engagement] other than a change of setting (the two MC's are almost exactly the same).

Overall, nothing too special.

The MC is shy/"cute"/lonely/physically weak/economically nonexistent/super beautiful/stereotypical "shou" in BL novels. Oh he also does housework & cooking even though they have a "butler" and smart robots. (Of course the ML does neither.)

... more>> The ML is OP/military general/tall/handsome/buff/physically strong/super rich/aggressive/overbearingly stereotypical "gong."

Also baffles me that this is the sci-fi future and the ML still smokes... CONSTANTLY. Literally he comes home from work, sits on the couch to smoke and wait for "his wife" to serve him dinner (wow a #r E a L man!!!)

Spoiler

The author clearly doesn't know about e-cigs (even tho China pretty much manufactures 99% of those on the market) or even the fact that 2nd-hand smoke is the worst...

[collapse]

Story started out all right and it was interesting to have the ghost/interstellar mixed setting (the part about the shipping fee was hilarious and great), but I wish the author put more thought into it. The sci-fi tech pretty much only exists if it's convenient for the author.

Like the author literally doesn't know of any other ways to raise relationship intimacy besides having the "feminine" MC cook delicious food and serve the "masculine" ML. lol.

I recommend this story if you particularly like slice-of-life, stereotypes, and very very "virtuous wife, " domestic MCs. <<less

This is a nice read. Contrary to the title/description, the little red flower agreement actually has very little to do with the story. The story takes place in a futuristic omegaverse post apocalyptic Earth. MC is something like a taoist, or has learnt the arts for it, and so is able to see and talk to ghosts.

The relationship between the two is cute and funny. MC is constantly trying to one up ML, but doesn't succeed and doesn't learn from it. In the beginning there is a lot of build... more>> up inregards to character setting, so the fluffiness/cuteness isn't that apparent, but after a few situations, the MC and ML end up liking each other and depending on one another. <<less

This story is overflowing with fluff. I really love the antics between the MC and ML and seeing how they tease and provoke each other. They're a really good couple with a healthy, fun and loving relationship.

The plot is very simple and straightforward (no angst or complex political intrigues here). There is a plot, but it definitely takes a backseat to the relationship between the couple.

I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys fluffy stories.

At first it seems like nothing but you get addicted to it easily, the power of MC is quite reasonable, not too OP... more>>
Spoiler

But his past lives got revealed in the later chapters and he becomes OP but that's understandable seeing his status, and MC and ML past lives is too tragic and the side AlphaxAlpha story makes me tear a little 💔

all in all the story is very interesting, the couple is in harmony but the title and the description has almost nothing to do with the actual plot,

Oh, and the translator put the images for all the food that is in the novel so you might not want to read it in the middle of the night and torture yourself like me, plus this is a cooking novel <<less

I feel like the description above is a little inaccurate. The MC dies and gets transmigrated into the body of an omega male who's engaged. He's no longer on the planet he once knew as Earth and is on a different planet in the future. He decides to marry the ML so he can go back to Earth. He also happens to be able to communicate with ghost. MC starts to get feelings for ML but they don't interact enough so he established the Red Flowers contract.

My thoughts: It's actually... more>> a pretty interesting story. They have really good chemistry with each other. Plus the ML isn't really overbearing in a bad way. The MC is also someone that you would like to bully. <<less

Story is full of fluff and is very interesting with the premise.

The little red flowers is a very small part of the story so not sure why its the title but it gets a pass because the story is so good to me.

The MC is my favorite type of MC, cute and sweet but also has a backbone and IQ. He was able to take care of himself and didn't have to rely on the ML to fix everything or help him with everything. He had his own thing going... more>> on but he was also very loving and 100% wifey material. The MC could cook, clean, take care of business and...

Spoiler

also practically raise an army of the dead.

[collapse]

The ML was black bellied, he loves the bully the poor MC but its super fluffy at the same time.

The story is set in an ABO world but also has taoist principles thrown in.

Spoiler

The MC and ML were past lovers and were royalty of the underworld.

It was a fun read that I blazed through in about 2 days. <<less

The story is interesting so far. I think the only negative thing is that there needs to be a beta-reader to clean up some parts because I've seen tense shifts and typos.

It's rare enough to not entirely detract from the reading experience.

I like first to read a couple of chapters and then I read the reviews. Well, my own impressions initially were quite positive, but the reviewers warned me that somewhere around ch.50 they would change. And it happened! For me, around chapter 54, it became unbearably boring, simply not interesting at all. Overall, this is a mildly interesting story, quite bland in writing, perfectly translated. It revolves around a prudish virgin penniless MC, formerly a Taoist something, who transmigrates into the body of the most beautiful penniless male Omega in... more>> another world who is in arranged marriage with the most beautiful and gifted and horny young general, a billionaire male Alpha ML. Both are spiritually gifted, good people with great friends

Spoiler

... and the whole story revolves around building a profitable business with the underworld, the world of spirits, accommodating and respecting the spirits of the dead people, making a buck off them via grave robbing, employing dead soldiers in service of the living people for their protection, etc.

[collapse]

Overall the atmosphere built in this novel is soft, pleasant, kind, nurturing, a relaxed and pleasant reading without much stirring of passion or sense of humor, lots of teasing, but no humor where both would laugh, including the reader... until our couple start punishing the family of the MC for their past wrongdoings, the usual for the c-novels device of writing pages and pages of transcripts of chatter on the internet forums is introduced as a major part of the text. I just lost the drive to continue reading this. There is nothing to look forward to in that plot, and there is zero character development.

Spoiler

The prude MC keeps being prudish and keeps berating his husband for too much s*x drive, even as he is pregnant with the triplets and later with twins on top of those triplets, and discovers that he is not that much of a talent as a Taoist Master. The talented general ML displays even more talents at work and at home and in the underworld space and experiences even more sexual frustration.

This is the most loveable storyline about ABO, although the set up story is about rebirth and omegaverse, this story never upset me in terms of the development and the growth in every characters.

I came to this story before it finished, that make me really upset because I keep on refreshing this novel updates platform just to see whether there is new updates on this story... Really challeges my... more>> temper... Fortunately the translator update it mostly everyday, bit still it does not satisfy my needs in this amazingly story...

I spend half my time reading wanting to slap the ML to death, but aside from that it's a fairly interesting story so far.

The MC is somewhat of an idiot when it comes to anything to do with real life and relationships (as is often the case for "shou" in these things), and annoyingly easy to steamroll over, but skillful in his field (in other words, the spiritual). ML is probably caring enough but takes so much advantage and lies and cheats so outrageously I mostly just wish he'd receive... more>> divine punishment or something for all the annoyance he bestows on the reader. At least he's not a complete rapist so far, so guess that's already a high accomplishment considering the genre.

The story is so far less messy than some comments make it seem; both the scifi and spiritual setting have justifiable reason to be included, and they work pretty well for the plot. The minor characters are entertaining and there's enough things left covered to keep the reader guessing about future developments.

It's a solid, if annoying, story so far. I just really really wish I could slap that ML. Really. <<less

So. I would give the story a solid 10/10 in terms of fluffiness and likable characters. But a 6/10 in terms of plot. The story line can be boring and frustratingly unrealistic at times and the romance is just thrown at us.

Note that by unrealistic I mean the characters actions and the plot itself seem contradictory at times.

That said. The story is much much better than the description makes it sound (like other reviewers already pointed out). It's a genuinely cute romance story about a powerful spirit summoning bottom who... more>> falls in love with our mischievous top. And uses his powers for good and shit. Cliche and cute. <<less

Why is this tagged as drama, this is hilarious. The MC is not afraid of seeking death ever since they are married. I LOL everytime he ran his mouth. Imagine a technologically advanced omegaverse being besieged by superstition even the cast themselves cannot believe it. And when the poor subordinates get goosebumps due to "lowered temperature" I chortle.

Quite easy to MTL, I don't mind reading in advance since I am still able to pick out the pranks the couple does on each other every now and then. I also appreciate... more>> that the couple took time to develop their relationship into something more than cohabitation. The gradual affection despite being omegaverse seemed more natural and good-paced for me. The mild face slapping slag relatives is nice too.

Spoiler

I am happy that MC gradually won over his husband's army in his own efforts and by being his natural self. The lotus stepmom and the green tea bit*h brother will get their face slap later, just be patient. The interstellar!netizens won't disappoint us readers lol. I also find it amusing that even the general and his technical head joined the trolling fun.

Let me start off by saying that this is fluffy to read. If that's your genre then you got the perfect novel! However, I just couldn't immerse myself because the narrative was just that. I didn't feel like I'm in for the ride but just reading it for the heck of it - no in-depth appreciation as a reader. I think the author failed to effectively narrate her story here to convince the readers. I don't mind relying on the narrative more than facts as long as they can effectively... more>> convey it. This story, unfortunately, failed in that department. If a story can have too much plot, then this one was the other side of it. On top of that, it is tagged as drama. Geez Louise, the story was too lax! Don't even get me started with the synopsis. (lol) Synopsis why you do this to me? I was waiting for it to become relevant, but it vanished as soon as it was brought up. I don't get why this one was the synopsis then?

Spoiler

The world-building was heavily focused on the living and the dead. Oops! The dead, I mean. I cannot, when I say I cannot, you say it with me. I cannot stress enough about the dead (supernatural) plot here. It was a fresh idea but unfortunately suffered from plot holes. And again, with the stereotype reinforcements!!!! The male (bottom) is the housewife. No bad vibes here, except why is it always like this? I'm going to repeat myself. If MC is a female, you wouldn't see the difference in character depth. If you cannot properly execute a well-rounded male omega character, then write it off as female instead!

[collapse]

ABO setting was quite different here too.
Spoiler

The male betas can give birth here, so at least that's great.

[collapse]

@amruta already explained this, so feel free to read this person's review for more information. The only pleasant part of this was the comedy section. I had a good laugh thanks to the MC. That's it. Many people like it though, so you might like it too.

My rating is actually lower than 3 but not lower than 2. I'll give it 2.6 <<less

I wish I had read the reviews before reading this novel. The title and synopsis are completely different than the actual story. Sigh. I was expecting a fluffy, slice of life type story. What I got was something else altogether.

The MC (omega) and ML (alpha) quickly fall for each other. Their interactions are sweet. They are the typical sweet MC and black-bellied ML. I wish the author had stuck to this ABO setting. The world setting though....

... more>>
Spoiler

The MC and ML were gods in their previous life. Both were sons of Emperors of heaven and the underworld. Imagine ML as son of Zeus and MC as son of Hades. Their love was forbidden and they were separated. blah, blah. In the present life, all the other gods seem to have vanished. How? Why? the author did not bother to tell. Just that Earth suffered a catastrophe and all gods are gone. Now, comes the bummer. MC was a Taoist on Earth and can see ghosts. MC transmigrated into an omega, got married to ML and returned to Earth. There are billions of ghosts wandering around. Eventually, the MC and ML deal with these ghosts.

What bugged me was the way the living and the dead interacted. If you are allowed you meet the ghosts of your loved ones, will you ever move on? Whether its a lover or family or friend, life has meaning because its finite. Otherwise, whats the big deal about death? The way Han Mo studied Taoism from MC to see his dead lover, bugged the hell outta me. Oh well..

[collapse]

The supernatural part of the story was messed up. It was unnecessary and was illogical for the most part. Also, the MC is otherwise good in his work, but eventually becomes a housewife. Nothing wrong in being a housewife. But author-sama, could you not have given the MC character in an interstellar setting something different other than stereotype. Sigh.... <<less

I dropped this instantly after the author refered to Earth as "Huaxuai (?) Planet" ("China" in ancient language). I'm sorry but this "ego remark" is over the top for me. I will not rate it since I haven't read much into the content and stuff but I will just put the information here.
