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 9

Edited by: Silv

Chapter 9: Rich and Powerful Young Master is a Little Cold 9 

Ah Zhao gradually filled several pages of notes and then slowly yawned.

The system looked at the time, the baby-voiced tone of reminder rang out: “It’s ten oçlock in the evening. The host needs to take note of taking time to rest.”

Ah Zhao nodded and carefully placed the notebook on her hand to the bedside table.

“Good night, Marshmallow.” This is the nickname that Ah Zhao gave to the system.
(TL: We should have now established that the system should look like white cotton candy but the name is Marshmallow. The Chinese characters “棉花糖” can mean both cotton candy and marshmallow.)

The system obviously liked the name very much: “Good night, host.”

The lights in the room went off. Ah Zhao closed her eyes and quietly fell asleep.

When she woke up again, it was already six o’clock in the morning.

Ah Zhao never had any problems waking up in the morning and naturally woke up full of spirit.

She quickly washed her face and rinsed her mouth well then went to the room next to hers to knock on the door.

Unexpectedly, there was no response.

“Xiao Yan, are you awake?”Ah Zhao patiently knocked on the door.


The door opened.

Xiao Yan’s well-dressed figure appeared at the door.

Looking at his appearance, he obviously didn’t just recently woke up.

Ah Zhao was a bit surprised: “Did you wake up so early?”

She indeed checked the information. It was said that most normal teenagers like to stay up late and wake up late.

Xiao Yan’s eyes were dark. He casually pulled out a reason: “I have some insomnia and can only sleep a little.”

As a matter of fact, having insomnia was true but waking up early is a matter of discipline.

He explained it so deliberately but he was just trying to tell the woman that he was not well.

Ah Zhao instantly looked very distressed: Poor male lead, his father didn’t care for his mother’s early death. No one cared for him when he was so young that it led to him becoming ill!

This made Ah Zhao even more resolute on her own way of thinking.

“Since you’re now awake, let’s go outside and run a few laps while it’s still early.

Xiao Yan stared blankly.

He finally sized up Ah Zhao carefully: The other person was wearing loose and comfortable sportswear. Her long hair was tied up in a ponytail. Her face was without a trace of makeup. It was a face full of youthful vitality hitting him face on.

It was truly the appearance of someone going on a morning exercise.

He was a little unconvinced: Does the other party really want to bring him out to exercise?

Zhao Li, that woman, didn't she most want him to die and for him to best die quietly here?

Seeing that he didn’t utter another word, Ah Zhao automatically understood that he didn’t want to.

If it were anything else, she wouldn’t insist on it. However, this was a matter about the male lead’s body.

She disapprovingly looked at Xiao Yan: “The body is the foundation of everything. Whether you like it or not, from this day, you have to follow me every day to go out, exercise and even relieve boredom. How can you stay in the house all day long?”

She even felt that the male lead’s personality problem was mostly due to staying in the house all the time.

Xiao Yan was still in a daze.

Although he matured early and was intelligent, in the end, he was still a sixteen-year-old boy. When encountering matters that he couldn’t figure out, he couldn’t treat it with complete calm.

The next second, he heard Ah Zhao saying:

“......Look at you, you’re so delicate, thin and weak-looking. There’s no trace of manliness. If you go out and let others see you, they might think that you are actually a girl.”

Consequently, Ah Zhao deliberately said this much because the book said that the most taboo thing to say to men is that they are not masculine and strong enough.

Sure enough, hearing what she said, Xiao Yan’s face faintly turned red.

His appearance looked really weak right now. A greater part of the reason was that he did it intentionally in order to make his stepmother, Zhao Li, negligent.

In the past, Xiao Yan also heard the maidservants in the villa gossiping about him, saying a lot of bad words, but he never put them in his heart.
(TL: Never put them in his heart - Not caring or not minding them)

But not knowing why, when he heard Ah Zhao saying that he looked thin and weak and even unmanly, his heart felt very uncomfortable.

[End of Chapter 9] 


TL: Imagining Ah Zhao is a bully and Xiao Yan is the delicate boy. Wahahaha! And isn't Marshmallow so cute? I can imagine that Marshmallow looks like a white cotton candy with cute eyes and mouth. Also, a cute baby bun voice! So meng!


  1. Ah Zhao already figured out tough love? She's learning quick.
    Thanks for the chapter.

  2. Thank you for your hard work! Can't wait for more! (⌒▽⌒ゞ

  3. Oof. Critical hit!
