Huntress has something to say:

I'm trying to fix some pages of this site. I realized it's caused by the new blogger so links got butchered.]
[Fixed the links until 80s Sweet Marriage Chapter 10]

I will try to update every Friday from now on. There are currently THREE early access chapters of 80s Sweet Marriage on Patreon and Buy Me a Coffee.

By the way, if you didn't notice, I have been using the free Grammarly to proofread my translations, if there would be a wonderful person who would be willing to be an editor or proofreader for me, I bow to you and please be my editor-sama/proofreader-sama.

Male Lead, You're Overpowered 18

Edited by: Silv

Chapter 18: Rich and Powerful Young Master is a Little Cold 18

[Sponsored by M]

Time passed by.

In the blink of an eye, Ah Zhao had stayed in this world for six months already.

At daybreak.

She was still dazed when the system shouted for her to wake up.

It’s time to wake up and exercise.

Ah Zhao rubbed her eyes and sat up. She dazedly washed up and changed her clothes.

Opening the door, it was not surprising to see Xiao Yan standing on the side.

In half a year, there was a huge change in the boy.

The long hair was cut short by Ah Zhao. The whole appearance looked refreshing.

The originally pale complexion was also changed into a healthier one in half a year because of Ah Zhao’s perseverance to pull him to exercise. Although he still had fair skin, he didn’t look weak.

There was more meat in his body and he no longer looked like he would be blown away by the wind.

Of course, the biggest change was the feeling that the male lead gives. Six months ago, when Ah Zhao first saw Xiao Yan, although you might feel that he looked delicate, his whole body exudes a kind of gloomy and cowering temperament.

But now, it was obviously much better. Ah Zhao looked pleasedly at the boy in front of her. Although his temperament was unlike those of the same age, his quiet and peaceful appearance can be highly praised.

Anyone who sees this kind of Xiao Yan had to praise him for being an elegant teenager.

“Teacher, good morning.” Xiao Yan smiled at Ah Zhao.

Ah Zhao returned a smile: “Good morning.”

The two didn’t say anything more. They went out of the villa as they usually did.

The butler stood by the gate and watched the two people’s backs as they left. His heart somehow felt uneasy.

Since Miss Xu came, the changes in Younger Master Xiao Yan can be easily seen by the naked eyes.

He looked at Young Master Xiao Yan who was like a dusty jade. After Miss Xu’s careful nurturing, like being polished, he finally began to bloom and reveal his brilliance.

If he didn’t see the changes, the housekeeper wouldn’t imagine that this teenager, who anyone can’t see anything special from except for being too quiet and not talkative, was actually the gloomy young master he had been monitoring for several years.

He was feeling a little uneasy in his heart.

The butler was Madam Zhao Li’s man (subordinate type). As Zhao Li’s position was as stable as Mount Tai, the person who was employed by her will have a better life.

The presence of Young Master Xiao Yan undoubtedly threatens her position as the wife.

The butler told Zhao Li his worries several times but he didn’t know what Miss Xu told to the Madam.

Zhao Li directly told him that he should not care about Xiao Yan’s matters and listen to Ah Zhao and she knows what’s going on.

Really, what did Ah Zhao say to Zhao Li?

Only these words: It’s more heartbreaking than never having it to begin with. That is, letting him destroy himself by letting him have something and then letting him lose it afterwards.

(TL: I don’t know what “it” is. If someone can praise it better, I implore you to comment on it.)

Get close to Xiao Yan, gain his trust, and even get the teenager's love then finally, ruthlessly trample his feelings under your feet.

“Madam Xiao, do you think that Xiao Yan who has mental problems can bear such a blow?” Ah Zhao still thinks that it’s not easy to complete the mission. It was still suitable for her to have the role of a spy.

Zhao Li was completely persuaded.

Because in her opinion, as long as Xu Zhao is not stupid enough, she can understand who is more reliable and can give her what she wants between her (ZL) and Xiao Yan.

Of course, this cannot be done without Xiao Yan’s cooperation.

Ah Zhao secretly told him not to show his real cleverness and his real learning progress. It’s granted that this is only a little secret between the both of them.

It was also because of these words that Xiao Yan finally believed that Ah Zhao was really not Zhao Li’s person.

  1. Thank you Translator-sama and Sponsor-san!!!

  2. I believe the 'it' was referring to love and affection. To make him feel loved then ruthlessly take it away. Could be wrong though ><

  3. I know I'm late but I think 'it' is 'hope.'
