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 24

Edited by: Silv

Chapter 24: Rich and Powerful Young Master is a Little Cold 24

Sir? Madam?

The male lead’s father and stepmother?

The chopsticks in Ah Zhao's hands, who was eating, stopped: “Coming over tomorrow?”

The butler nodded: “Yes, that’s right. The madam sent the news just now.”

Ah Zhao subconsciously looked at Xiao Yan.

Xiao Yan acted like he didn’t hear anything and continued to drink his soup.

By the time the bowl of soup was finished, the soup bowl clanged on the dinner table. His small voice showed that he doesn’t as calm as he appears on the surface.

“After all these years, I lived well all by myself here. What do they want to come here for?” It was a typical teenager’s resentful appearance.

The butler inwardly noted down his behavior and he also let go of his heart——It seems that Young Master Xiao Yan was just an angry boy. In the end, he lived for so many years in the villa. He had no chance to get along with others and he can’t raise any deep thoughts.

Ah Zhao made considerations in her mind. Xiao Yan’s mood was also gloomy. The two finished the meal quietly.

In the afternoon, the two arrived in the study.

“Xiao Yan, you’ll meet your father tomorrow. By all means, don’t act like this.” Ah Zhao said.

Xiao Yan has an expressionless face. He heard what she said and looked at her: “Oh, does teacher mean that I should be happy when I meet them?”

The tone of anger and unhappiness in his voice is obvious.

Ah Zhao immediately smoothened his hair: “Of course not.”

(TL: smoothen hair=pat head?)

Xiao Yan looked a little better: “Then why did teacher also say that?”

Ah Zhao looked at him and said: “Whose money do you use to eat and spend?”

Xiao Yan didn’t hesitate at all: “It’s the legacy my mother left me.”

Ah Zhao: “......”

She originally wanted to make the male lead realize who he depends on to eat.

She thought that it was Xiao Yan’s father who somehow still had a conscience and knows to still provide a good life for his son. So it was originally from his biological mother’s legacy.

She can only improvise at the moment: “Do you know that your stepmother doesn’t like you very much?”

Xiao Yan nods. This kind of thing, anyone with brains know, okay?

“Does your father know?”

Xiao Yan was silent for a moment and softly replied: “Of course, he…… he knows.”

Ah Zhao knows that forcing a young man to admit it is cruel but Xiao Yan couldn’t escape the problem.

“Look, your father knows that your stepmother doesn’t like you and even deliberately suppresses you. He obeys your stepmother’s intentions and finally sent you here alone.”

“What does this mean?”

Xiao Yan didn’t hesitate to say it this time: “He doesn’t like me.”

“And also?”

Xiao Yan looked at Ah Zhao and didn’t speak.

Ah Zhao gently looked at him. She said the words that are incomparably cold: “It proves that in your father’s heart, you are not worth mentioning compared to your stepmother and stepbrother.”

Xiao Yan was somewhat surprised that Ah Zhao could say such words.

His understanding of this teacher is that she’s more or less a high IQ top student and practically can be considered to know everything.

But in the above-mentioned feelings, it’s simply terrible. Except for the simple good and evil, she’s too dull to understand other feelings.

Can she really analyze his father’s psychology so deeply?

He made an appearance of bending an ear to listen attentively. He wants to hear what this person still has to tell him.

Ah Zhao proceeded to say: “Therefore, what would you think if you were your father. Would you like to see the son who admires you but has a mediocre ability, or a son who had a great grudge against yourself but has an amazing talent?”

[End of Chapter 24]

TL: Every line of every chapter of MLYO, I have a lot of comments to make. I don't just put them here cause they'll ruin the story for dear readers. I think I still have 2 chapters to make to catch up on the chapters I didn't make? I already finished the chapters that were supposed to be translated on Dec. 26, 28, 30 and Jan 1. I still need 2 chapters for Jan. 3 and 5. After that are the sponsored chapters. Aren't the readers happy this time?


  1. So he should show how resentful he is and also how smart he is??? Did I get that right or did I just confused myself?

  2. I’m pretty sure it’s the second option because for the first option if he sees someone that could gain power in the future and use it against him (Xiao Yan) than wouldn’t he want to get rid of him? On the other hand if he admires him but doesn’t really have a chance in the future to be a threat he would let his guard down and might even go against the stepmother for him. Think about it...
