It was short and sweet. An easy read.

Ingredients

-2 cups of overly protective prince who is deeply in love with the said adorable villainess

... more>> - a dash of possesiveness

- a cup of cuteness and fluff

-2 tsp. Of memories about the world being an otome game

-1 adorable villainess who is the exact opposite of what a villainess would be like

-1 fine grounded (reincarnated or transmigrated I'm not sure) white lotus b*tch ass heroine

-and lastly a pinch of comedic atmosphere

Mix it all together...

And tadah~☆ a freshly baked cliche-villainess-who-remembers-her-past-life-memories-and-tries-to-avoid-ruin-by-getting-away-from-her-beloved-fiance-but-was-already-deeply-loved-by-her-fiancee-that-is-supposed-to-fall-in-love-with-the-heroine pie!!!

Anyway if you like this type of cliche villainess trope like me, then you would surely enjoy this short read~☆ <<less

Umm... So it's like this, the story started off great, I was going with the flow...

The first conflict appeared and the FL wanted to break the engagement with the prince...

I never thought that the prince was so... ret*rded. His "solution", his "capturing her". My rant --->

... more>>
Spoiler

This asshat took the FL (who was crying & worried about a destructive ending) into his bedroom, had s*x, woke up, and looked at her sleeping face "wahaha she'll never leave me now"... (Not kidding, he said that)

His GENIUS SOLUTION was to have s*x and marry her ASAP...

Like, he is the prince of the country. The smart prince who memorized all the names and faces of the nobility so that he could track down the family of this one girl who caught his fancy... HIS IQ WOULDN'T BE THAT LOW.

So why tf couldn't he plan something better than having s*x before marriage (no, I don't care about that, but in their world the FL clearly didn't want to have s*x before marriage because "she'll be ruined") and getting married as soon as possible. He married her before they even graduated from the academy... Like dude, BRO, OI YOU IDIOT!!!!

WHY!? If that's how you show her that you are sticking with her forever, IT'S TOO DAMN INCONSIDERATE AND BLOCKHEADED!

What is he planning to do when another problem arises?HMM?? Have s*x and marry her?? Already did that you fool! I don't see a bright future for our FL. She may have married that moron, but he'll definitely do some dumb sh*t later that'll make her suffer.

As far as oneshots go, this one is definitely a great-turned-ret*rded story. I believed the prince was smart, but his solution proved that he was an imbecile. A dude that ridiculous should just ask for advice, cause he won't be able to think for himself.

I usually stay away from one shots because I like to have lots to read, but this one was so cute! It’s a quick, light, fluffy read.

well, it was okay. You could guess how it goes from the summary. Nothing deep. Story is (mostly) told from the ml's perspective.

- FL wants to break up because she knows the ending (game)

- yandere (?) ML that doesn't want to be dumped

- white lotus heroine

a few things weren't explained:

ML liked FL since childhood. It is unknown why the ML left the FL for the heroine in the game. It is also unknown when the FL gained knowledge of the otome game. The 'villaines' was never explained. To me, the reincarnation theme is there just to be convenient. I guess, even if it were explained, the reason would be the same like the other reincarnation novels

Well, that's fast. It's just a one shot after all. This story is slightly different from other otome game story because it's told from ML's POV.

Since it's just a one shot, I know that there will be some plot holes in the story, such as:

Spoiler

Why in the original story, the prince wants to break his engagement with MC and even leds MC and her family to their demises?

Also, MC doesn't even do anything to change the original story other than asking the prince to break their engagement. And voila, the ending is changed just like that.

Short and simple, duh, oneshot. Pro's, reassuring love fluff, loyal love interest, interrsting main pov choice and that comedic twist in the end.

Cons, preference wise - broken hearted damsel in distress, shifting thought or dialogue sometimes feel confusing.

whoops, forgot to rate it, I rate it 5/5 stars.

I really enjoyed this short story, both liked each other but since the [Villainess] has memories of her past life she knows what will happen if she continues staying with the Prince, so she asked him if he could break their engagement.

Yup, the ML is a yandere, but do not be disheartened when you read the other reviews and it said it's basically a "forced love, " No it's not, both like each other, it's just that the villainess doesn't want her ending to become like the ending she saw, which will be her ending if she still continued being the fiancé of the ML, aka the Prince.

It's ok. It's a quick simple read for those who love Otome games with villainess noble girls in them and the translation is readable. The oneshot doesn't really go into detail. I was hoping for it, but there wasn't enough background about the characters. Also, where were the other male leads? It's only the prince shown in this oneshot I guess. In my opinion, I didn't like the ML.

He forces the MC to stay with him, so she can't escape by any means. In other words, a yandere... Don't know why there isn't a male yandere tag. It just feels like forced love when one of them doesn't want to stay with the other.

a cute and happy story. Seems like the ML fell in love first before the FL. That's quite cute. But I say why do the heroines, who reincarnated, like to have a reverse harem?

It started off decent, good setting, interactions are nice, etc. The three lengthy paragraphs of exposition in the middle were a bit boring and I skimmed those. The ending just made me feel like I had wasted my time.

Spoiler

remember, guys, it's not s*xual assault if he's hot and she already likes him (sarcasm). On a more serious note though, who in their right mind thinks to "capture" their fiance by having s*x with her and hastening their marriage?? He's a douchebag.

Cute fresh short story about how much the Prince loves his fiance. Not often you find a novel from ML POV most of the way so now I want more.

Just for the sake of the comedy towards the end of the story... Yup, you should read it. I gave it a 4 / 5 (I don't usually rate one-shots.)

The story is very simple, yet done well and effective. Most of the story is easy to understand but the dialog could be improve a bit, a well deserve 4 star
