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

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

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 #rEaL man!!!)


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...


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

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>>

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..


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 really struggled to finish this novel. To begin with, I have never been a fan of m-preg/ABO novels, but I decided to give this one a try because of the hilarious summary. And it turns out the summary had very little to do with the actual story.

MC: omega, good at all "wifey" duties (housework, cooking, laundry, groceries, etc.), an ex-taoist priest at a Buddhist temple that can summon and talk to ghosts

ML: alpha, general of an army, hobby: teasing his wife

... more>> Summary:

The theme is a crossover of sci-fi ABO x Eastern exorcism. The MC is an infamous omega that is forced into a marriage with the ML. The ML is the bully type of lover and likes to tease the MC. Like in a typical romance novel, the MC is often referred to as a white rabbit and the ML is referred to as a big bad wolf. After marrying the ML, the MC's special ability of summoning ghosts is revealed and the ML recruits the MC into the army. And thus begins the MC's adventure of building an undead army.


The crossover of a sci-fi ABO x Eastern exorcism is not done very well, so it feels very awkward to read about. The MC's character also leaves much to be desired because the MC is truly too feminine. It would not have mattered if the MC was a female because the ML keeps on labeling the MC as "wife", "virtuous", "kind", "meticulous", "cute", and so on. If I did not know the MC was actually male, I would have believed that the MC is a wife from Ancient China that abides by the four virtues of womanhood: morality, proper speech, modest manner and diligent needlework. Yes, the MC actually did needlework in the story too. As for the ML, there is no character development as he remained the same shameless and bullying behavior throughout the story. I do not know what I was expecting from this story, but definitely not this. And personally, I just really did not like the MC's nor the ML's character setting as they seem to encompass the stereotypical "husband" and "wife" roles too much. Despite all this, I managed to finish the novel even though it left me feeling disappointed. <<less

what a deceptive summary ?... more>>

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.


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.


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

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

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.

The story is great, its's interesting, entertaining, and very sweet. The only problem is it's nothing like the summary! There is NO LITTLE RED FLOWER whatsoever! The agreement was only a little part of the story that WASN'T EVEN IMPORTANT. Kinda feel being cheated a little.

The good thing is, it's a great story. I never like to read ABO story before, even though the setting of ABO in the storyline is a little bit different than the other, but I enjoyed it. For being able to hooked me with ABO... more>> settings, I give this 5 star. <<less

Holy Sh*t that summary is such a lie LMAO! The ML practically glues himself to the MC from the start and the "red flowers" premise takes up approximately 1% of the storyline *sneezingface*. But okay, sham of a summary aside, I enjoyed the read! The main plot is... MC is a master of metaphysics (he can see spirits, draw talismans, etc) that died young and ended up transmigrating 500 years into the future (which is an interstellar era). Upon arrival, he finds himself immediately matched up to an Alpha called... more>> Xu Yao (the ML). He agrees to being said Alpha's wife so that he can go back with him to planet Earth, which had long been abandoned and left to ruin after several world-ending disasters.

The focus of the story is a bit mixed. It starts off being mostly about romance and exploring metaphysics. Then there's a bit of a "kingdom building" feel as the two main characters get even more involved with the undead community. Finally, it finishes off with action and family feels. So... you really get a bit of everything! I found the main CP quite amusing. The MC is pretty much your stereotypical shou!protagonist, but the ML was a bit more unique — taking on the foxy!gong route rather than the stoic!gong route, though he's still quite overbearing.

All in all, while I was super skeptical about this read for the longest time, I have no regrets now that I've finally read it. I learned a lot about Chinese culture and seeing it fused with the futuristic era was quite interesting! The TL over at CG is also quite good, so there's no reason not to give it a shot.


When it comes to the characters, I like them, but they're also quite simple. This isn't a heavy novel to begin with, so there's not much complexity, just charm.

Le Yao (MC)

The MC is the prickly tsundere type that's overflowing in innocence. I found him quite likeable, and he meshed well with the ML.

Xu Yao (ML)

As mentioned, the author takes a bit of a different route by making the ML a bit more proactive in terms of interactions. He's quite a wily character, and that makes him have more of a presence than those MLs who end up looking more like an accessory than a love interest 🤧.

ROMANCE: 7.5/10

The romance was also quite simple in the end. I thought it would be an enemies-to-lovers kind of story (thanks to the summary), but it was a lot more simple than that since the ML expressed early interest — it was just the MC blocking things because of the ML's big "fish".


The novel wins the most when it comes to the setting! It's quite unique, and for someone who has very little knowledge about metaphysical traditions, I learned so much and gained a better understanding of certain scenes in other novels that I've read before (lololol). The interstellar era was interesting too. There was not much traveling, but I found it interesting to read about humans inhabiting a planet that is not actually fit for human habitation.

PLOT: 7/10

As mentioned before, the plot of the novel is quite mixed up. I enjoyed the kingdom building aspect lost, as well as the initial set-up. The last arc was a lot less interesting for me, but I did still complete it in the end!

RATING: 3.88/5

Although my rating might not seem high, this is actually quite normal for me since I'm very picky. I really like this novel, but it's definitely not perfect! If I had to point out what I loved most, it would be the setting and the banter between the main CP — I can recommend reading the novel for those two aspects alone~ <<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"... LOL.

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 that... more>> 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.


I am happy that MC gradually won over his husband's army with his own efforts by being himself. 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.


[EDIT:]Alright as for the title it will come in the middle. Perhaps the reason author used that as title is that part is like the turning point of their relationship. For those that still cannot understand,

the "red flower" signifies points (kind of like how star is for kindergarten). And the general wanted to complete the full marks as much as possible so as to be able to sleep with MC. His scheme will be foiled later tho, and they will restart.

Disgusting. I can't believe they are shaming oriMC, he looks exactly like the type of MC we would like. Going against an entire society by trying to destroy his own body for the hope of freedom only to get it stolen by a coward who despite having metaphysics powers doesn't dare to simply kick a door. What is this tr*sh author trying to say exactly?

The novel always stayed interesting so I finished it pretty quickly but it was also confusing, so it's better to read without thinking much about it. The flower thing only lasted 2 chapters in the middle then was never mentioned again so I have no idea why the name and summary are about it.

The novel is actually about ghosts and how MC, who is the only person that can communicate with them, shows ghosts to everyone else. But the ghosts can do a lot to make others believe in them... more>> without seeing them like manipulating their surroundings and some ghost even strangled a person so it's weird no one even considered the possibility of afterlife like that especially because MC travelled into the future.

The novel is so focused on ghosts that I didn't get enough lovey-dovey parts between MC and ML, the s*x is glossed over so there is nothing s*xual in it, the first time MC went into heat was outside and ML was far away so their marking happened on a field, and MC gave birth prematurely during a war so most of their special moments just are stressful and there is no s*xy time intermission.

It is a cute novel and enjoyable as the couple went on dates at times and were a little naughty at home so overall I finished it because I just wanted to see more of those sweet moments, not ghosts drama. If you like reading about spirits then I think you'll like it. <<less

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 h**ny young general, a billionaire male Alpha ML. Both are spiritually gifted, good people with great friends


... 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.


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.


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 s*xual frustration.

I really really really tried to finish it... and pushed myself.... now I regret it. It went from ok... to ridiculous. It’s like the author tried to mush everything together just to appear “new” and “unique”. But the story has hardly any plot, any character development, any depth or intelligence. It went from a bit of everything to completely drama with to much of everything. Couldn’t even stop at one kid and went straight to “triplets”....

Translations been great though and the only a reason it got 2 stars

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

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

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...


also practically raise an army of the dead.


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.


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

3.75/5* - TOO MESSY

This novel was quite different than what I expected and not in good way. I already knew it has nothing to do with collecting little flowers from other reviews, but that wasn't what bothered me.

I didn't like the mix of supernatural (ghosts) with Interstellar and in the end also Chinese fantasy (gods) in this story. A 'normal' ABO interstellar story suddenly became so fantastical, giving MC and ML so many new abilities that felt out of place in this world setting. Also MC and ML got... more>> another identity in the end that made them not belonging to the current life in the interstellar world.

There is another story that has a mix of Chinese fantasy and Interstellar: Worship me, I can make you rich. But 'Worship Me' was able to fuse two genres into a well written story that was believable and enjoyable.

Here, in addition to mixing 3 genres they added: a war with aliens, evil family members, political power struggle, MC selling artifacts/lucky charm creations, reviving the death and building a commercial 'Underworld', reuniting with MLs dead parents, reviving planet Earth as a tourist place.... And don't forget the blooming romance, the buns and their reincarnation! It gave the whole story a messy feeling. Lots of plot points were touched upon, but not satisfyingly fleshed out, because there were too many.

Because of mixing interstellar, supernatural plus Chinese fantasy, the story almost felt like a super long dragged out QT novel in which the interstellar setting was an arc world and the Chinese fantasy (gods and underworld) setting in the end the 'main' story of our CP.

As a result I put the story on hold for a few months around chapter 25 or so (too detailed about the process of summoning the ghosts). After that I was invested again when MC's abilities were known to others as well and the romance was developing, but then lost interest again in the end after MC's and ML's real identities were reveiled (too fantastical). I skimmed lots of the chapters in 2nd half especially near the end, expect the parts about the kids. I enjoyed the screen time of the kids!

Also, I wasn't invested in the side CPs story. They didn't stand out, but were rather bland. The whole side cp felt like another plot point on top of so many that the author had on her check list that must be included. So, I skipped the side CPs extras.

I would like to tell the author that less is more! <<less

Rating: 3.5/5- A wonderful read until the last 20 odd chapters. It has a weird plot point that ruined the otherwise well written story. Still pleasant and enjoyable with good characters. I may re-read this in future and change my mind about it though.


... more>>

Everything was wonderful about this novel until they hit this weird reincarnation part and then I just lost interest after that. At least the part is towards the end so it won’t totally ruin a great story. (Like why couldn’t they be powerful and talented in their own right? The reincarnation love story felt so unrealistic and unnecessary).

Also there were too many babies all of a sudden. Like I love mpreg and dads with kids but this was just... wow... 5 kids? They didn’t even have a honeymoon.


The ambitions of the MC to be a businessman were a little bit far fetched, but he’s so much better than weakling MCs so I didn’t mind much. <<less
