Full of feels in a short story. This is very nice, my kind of story, I really like one sided love and this story started like that, it's funny and a little bit of angst to make your heat clenched in pain, the ending was cute and lovely.

F-king hell with your 'cute story' above commenter! I was crying my eyes out through these 16 chapters! It wasn't just cute but beautiful and heartwarming with heart-wrenching feelings ah! It's so short with just 25 chapters! But it shouldn't be longer either because I might die from losing too much tears if it were to be described in details. PLEASE PREPARE YOUR HEART AND TISSUES FOR UNREQUITED LOVE JOURNEY!

Edited: It's actually quite sweet at the end though.

The only think I didn't expect was that Yan-daren (ML) wasn't the one who betray MC, so all is well. I have a feeling he was and wasn't at the same time but oh well... Sorry dude for doubting you.

It's a very cute story. ML seems cold but he slowly got softer toward MC. MC overall is a cute and happy baby boy :)

2 stars for the story and 4 stars for the good translation.

After reading the whole novel, there was only the feeling of bitterness left. Why you say? Well, I was completely and utterly dissatisfied with the whole plot line as well as every characters in there (maybe aside from the MC - but only a little bit). This might probably be the worst plot line I've ever came across with no proper end in sight - the 'little Emperor' is a complete bastard but did not get the retribution he... more>> should have got in the end of the novel. Also, to be completely honest with you, the events leading up to the main couple coming together really made no sense - and towards the end, I don't even feel that the ML was truly in love with the MC even though the author does his/her best to write it in a way that deems to be true love, but in my eyes, MC just happened to be the perfect 'shou' substitute of the bastard Emperor brother that the ML used to be in love with - "eyebrows and smile similar to the one in his heart" HAH o-O

The papapa scenes were probably some of the only noteworthy part of this novel but even then when describing 'that' as "humongous purple red..." really just makes the ML look like some sort of a off-the-street r*per who came just for the ass of the MC.

Other noteworthy aspects would probably be when the environment or the atmospheres that's described but hey, that's it! =)

Either way, the translator did a great job in translating the novel, just that the story is not that satisfying and very lacking when it comes to plot line and character building. <<less

The MC is such a lovable cutie pie!

Even though the story is short, it is very sweet and full of fluff! (Minus some palace drama)

MC: the ninth prince, a smol innocent boi in love with his elder brother's personal bodyguard

... more>> ML: the personal bodyguard of the eldest prince, cold and taciturn


I usually dislike cold and taciturn characters because they shuck at communicating, but because of how smol, sweet, and smart the MC is, I can reluctantly accept the ML's character setting. The ending is happy, but I still crave for more extras. I wish there was a sequel or more extras, I can not bear to part with our lovable MC. <<less

the summary does NOT DO IT JUSTICE BRO

i expected a very nonsense like fluffy story filled with plotholes just to get over Copper coins (11/10 reccommend) but man was I surprised

xiao jiu is portrayed as a naive fool in the beginning and I thought it was a lazy author not developing their characters but I was WRONG.

... more>>

I was not expecting emperor gege to be a bit*h faced bastard



also pearl turned out to be the imposter. Pearl!! All of us sussed on my boy yan heng poor child did nothing


i thought it would be typical white lotus shou x black belly gong but I really like how theyre both very into each other without the typical dom-sub attributes.


i mean, yan heng married into xiao jius family. I found it delightful. Also f*cking as*hole emperor gege, youre the one who married the princess and did pda in front of yan heng with no consideration for his feelings at all and then youre throwing a tantrum bcoz he moved on?! Stfu s*upid hoe ass b*tch


honestly, 10/10 will recommend for a sweet and smutty short read. Very satisfying. <<less

Hello, I’m usually only a lurker and I don’t write any reviews but for this I had to speak up, don’t get me wrong the book is amazing, from its translation to its way writing. The only thing that I have a problem with is that. WHY YHE HELL DID NOT THE EMPEROR BROTHER GET HIS retribution like I don’t know get his reputation ruined or like an extra chapter explaining how he is A TERRIBLE emperor, which I know for sure he is, BUT LIKE REALLY ? AUTHER COME... more>> ON. Give me something that will satisfy me and I can sleep at night. This bothered me so much that I don’t think I can sleep tonight.

that aside for those new readers, enjoy the book, it’s worth five stars but I gave it four for the lack of revenge 😐 <<less

This had potential to be a longer story, but, as it is right now, isn't bad.

I love the progression of their relationship. It was all very sweet and wholesome. There's a tiny bit of angst, but the story doesnt dwell too much on it.

Im also glad that there were sections dedicated to the ML's side of the story which cleared up many things.

A good read especially if youre coming from a longer dogblood drama fiction hehe

It's a cute read, at first the MC was so pure and the age wasn't really mentioned that I thought it might be shota. But it is not. The story is really as the description says, as someone who loves angst, I am glad that this story has a little, just a little element of it.

Very suitable if you need a short fluffy story after a long read, or you don't have much time and just need a quick BL fix.

A nice and cute story to read with a bit of angst. Hello world of unrequited love! But they became a couple!

MC is a cutiepie who always follows ML. He's a bit shameless, honest and very lovable! ML on the other hand is cold and detached from MC but became good later on.

It was new to me that ML married to MC's family lol so he became the wife HAHAHAHA (btw ML is the gong here)


Yup, a recommended read!

I just got rejected from a confession then I read this. Dammit! <<less

It's fluffy with a sprinkle of angst. A short mindless read if you don't want to think about plot. MC is the cute type, pure and innocent pining for ML.

For a relaxing read it was good, but not very satisfying. I don't buy ML's sincerity. It felt too abrupt, but I can understand since it's short and things needed to be hastened up.

This was a very bittersweet story.

I really like the MC he is so honest with his feelings and adorable. I rarely find MC’s like this.

ML was okay for me nothing to say more about him.

Please read it! It is very worthy of a little bit of time. Short and sweet.

The plot is not complex and easy to read and no need to dwell too much on it. Just give it a go.

Thank you, translators, and many thanks to the author for the hard work.

Fluff, just fluff.

For a novel tagged as smut, the smut was just the bonus for me, cause the plot and the story was written really well.

What a fun and cute story!

This story is not explicit smut, but more on the sweeter side. But there are H scenes at the last chapters~

I love the flow of the story, and I think that the MC and ML are so good together! This novel is a fun, light read and is recommendable to those who just want to have a cute moment and light-hearted story to read./Though there were scenes where I felt a pang in my heart, and tears gathered in my eyes lmao/ But the overall... more>> feel is sweet, and very romantic. I love how the political issue was placed in the story, it was well established and did not feel forced at all.


The MC is the one who chased after the ML at first, then after the climax the ML chased the MC. After that, they got married <3 <3 <3

A good fluffy story. At first it was a little bittersweet and I did shed tears a little *sniffs*. But I was satisfied on the later part. I was fed with enough dog-food UvU thanks author and for the translators for this lovely short read.

Giving it 5/5 to pull up the ratings because it deserves it.

This is a short, straightforward story that knows exactly what it wants to be: simple, short, sweet, and charming.

No intricate palace intrigues or drawn out wars. It's just fluff, fluff, more fluff, and a dash of poignant unrequited love. Just a dash.

If you just want to smile and feel silly happy, this is the novel to read.

A heartwarming short story with some light angst and a dash of mystery in between.

Overall well-balanced story, fluffy parts were fluffy, but had just enough plot to keep the reader invested and interested in the characters' outcome.

If you've read other ancient-style stories, how the plot unfolded is pretty common. But still nice read overall.

... more>> I only wish it was easier to get immersed in the writing.

The translation not only has pinyin everywhere but was extremely inconsistent. For example, the translator would translate Fourth Prince, but not translate "fourth brother." Both forms of address also referred to the same person as well... why?

Not only that, Second Prince was completely pinyin, which gives the false impression that the Second Prince is different or unrelated somehow, when the author literally addressed them all the same way.


Furthermore, the translator would sometimes say "Ninth Prince" but then alternatively use pinyin to refer to Ninth Prince. Pinyin is not Chinese, it's a guide on pronunciation of Chinese characters. And is especially confusing without the intonation marks.

For people who know Chinese, this becomes even more confusing because in MOST texts, jiu is uncle, not "nine." They have the same pinyin, but because the translation was so inconsistent and flipflopped so many times, half the time my initial impression were that they were saying "little uncle, " not "little nine."

If a form of address that has the exact same character and exact same meaning but are treated completely differently by the translator, it gives the reader the impression that they are not the same people. Which is wrong because they are the same, as intended by the author.

A ton of common ancient phrases were also left in their original pinyin, despite having very commonly accepted translations (like "your highness" and "gentleman"). Some common NON-ancient phrases were also kept pinyin, like "dumplings" and "grandpa."

I almost thought jiaozi was "carriage" for a hot minute... ("dumpling" and "carriage" have the same pinyin when you don't put intonation marks) lol.

At this point, it would be better to put the original Chinese characters in the text, literally would have the same result as footnoting all that pinyin to non-native readers, but at least there's the benefit of readers who know Chinese not getting confused.


Otherwise, translation was very thorough... I did appreciate some of the onomatopoeia (like ze -> "tsk") getting translated properly. <<less
