Chapter 2 The Main Wife, Long Yuqing
Long Shiyan, an ordinary person from the twenty-first century, was transmigrated into this continent nine years ago. She traveled with her parents all across the continent. When they returned to their family home three months ago, they were attacked by a group of bandits and both her parents died in front of her.
Fortunately, she escaped with the help of the system. But despite this, she was displeased. She lost both her father and mother. She once had a family. But now, they died…to protect her.
What was the point of gaining the system if it only appeared after the incident?
However, there was still a chance to resurrect them.
In a dark room, Long Shiyan sat on top of a bed with her thighs covered with blankets. Her eyes were closed and a pearl with a faint blue light was in front of her.
“How is the task easy?” A blue pearl floated out from the girl. Although the voice was not loud, it echoed throughout the room.
Long Shiyan opened her eyes and raised an eyebrow. “Does it really have to be so troublesome? Can’t we just kill Long Aotian right away?”
“Hey, it seems that you still don’t know everything about Long Aotian’s character. The entire world will be on his side since he is the protagonist. Even if you, by chance, succeed in killing him, he will still have a way to resurrect,” the pearl stated as its words were filled with ridicule.
“Then, that makes things complicated.” Long Shiyan held her temples as she looked through her mind, constantly searching for memories about Long Aotian. It wasn’t like Long Shiyan didn’t read stallion novels with protagonists like Long Aotian before crossing over. During her previous life, she liked reading these types of novels a lot. Now, after carefully analyzing the information about the plot from within in her mind, she discovered many memories of Long Aotian that were different from the novel.
Of course, the contents of the memories were similar to the book, which was the standard pattern of collecting a harem. However, the ending of the novel was interesting. His harem unexpectedly began a rebellion and then, the world was destroyed as a result.
“So in order for us to defeat Long Aotian, we need to weaken his protagonist halo. One way is to remove his harem. The more people you take away from his harem, the weaker his influence will be.”
“You don’t need to doubt me. I am the system. What I say is absolutely correct,” the pearl spoke with a bit of dissatisfaction.
“Your unreliable image has already been set in stone within my heart.” Long Shiyan’s face wrinkled, forming a cute frown as she whispered, “That is to say, my task is to protect those women, who are going to be captured by Long Aotian, right?”
“Yes, you do not only want to eliminate the influence of Long Aotian’s halo that will be forced upon them, but also give them a new purpose in life. Whenever you complete a protection mission, you will earn one million points. After you eliminate the effects of the halo, ten million points will be awarded. With point rewards, you can resurrect your parents by spending billions of points.” The pearl paused and then said, “You shouldn’t assume that this is easy to do. During the process, you will be in great danger.”
“I don’t think I will fall for that type of man.” Long Shiyan knitted her brows with discontent. Her face, coupled with her cute eyelashes, was adorable.
“Hey, you can’t continue having these types of optimistic thoughts. It is very important that you are aware that you may become one of Long Aotian’s harem members. Maybe someday, you will fall in love. What if xxoo drugs are used? You must understand that you have the most chances of falling in love within the plot. Even I can’t stop it from happening.”
“So, apart from the mission points, you are useless.” Long Shiyan’s eyes swept across it indifferently. She moved her body while lying on bed and closed her eyes, ignoring the pearl that bounced up and down in disagreement.
The world she crossed over into was the world of a novel where there were many different beauties in the protagonist’s harem. These various types included: Icebergs, hot, wise, cute, awkward, sister, queen, young, woman, catwoman, fox, etc.
In the process of meeting people, there were marriage arrangements, introductions, young love, aphrodisiacs, and accidental occurrences. While the Long Shiyan in the original book was still just a loli during the beginning, she was tricked into using drugs.
If this was true and the original Long Shiyan was always in the heat due to drugs, then this was a very serious problem. However, Long Shiyan also noticed a strange phenomenon in the original work, which was the important person who caused Long Aotian to begin a harem—Zi Linglong.
She was one of Long Aotian’s harem members and the main antagonist of this book.
Long Shiyan soon fell asleep. The pearl stared at her for a moment before snorting. After chanting a few words, a single necklace was automatically formed and brought to her body.
When Long Shiyan opened her eyes, the sky was already bright. As she climbed up from the bed, the door suddenly opened and a group of men stormed in.
The group was led by an elder with a cane in hand. While the old man’s hair was white, he seemed quite vigorous as his complexion appeared awfully red. Next to him was a fifty to sixty-year-old man dressed in a priest’s garb. In one hand, he held a scepter with a crystal stone embedded in it, which appeared extraordinarily mysterious.
At this moment in time, a woman in her forties rushed to their side to appease them. “This is the High Priest Kohl, the strongest light attribute magician, who resides in our Fengyun Empire!”
Long Shiyan glanced at the woman who resembled her mother. Even though she had aged, she…still doted on Long Shiyan. Even if her parents were gone, Grandma was still her relative!
Looking back at the white-haired old man who was full of smiles, she quickly got out of bed and cleverly greeted everyone, “Greetings, Great Grandfather! Greetings, Grandfather Priest! Greetings, Grandpa!” she said, looking behind the black-bearded old man.
“How are you?” QingYu hugged her granddaughter and spoke to Kohl, the High Priest. “Was coming here too troublesome, Mr. Kohl?”
“It was alright!” High Priest Kohl slightly smiled. He shook his scepter as he chanted some words. Then, a white light suddenly fell onto Long Shiyan’s body. Long Shiyan slowly floated up. She felt warm and comfortable under the light as she nearly moaned. But she quickly calmed her mind and hid the darkness within her body. Fortunately, her endurance was extremely high and this small, bright purification spell was useless against her.
“Alright, under the light of the gods, the darkness shall not appear again. While there are still several matters within the Nangong family, they will not persist,” High Priest Kohl said to the crowd with a smile.
“If that is the case, then we will not stay much longer. Thank you, High Priest Kohl!” The old man with a white beard slightly bowed as everyone in the family went back to their homes. The High Priest also hurriedly departed.
After Long Batian sent the High Priest away, everyone else stayed. Sitting in a chair, he smiled and looked at Long Shiyan.
Long Shiyan recited a line before opening her eyes. She had to say that sometimes, using magic was convenient. She felt that her mood was a lot better as she couldn’t help but smile. However…her smile was very superficial. Still, she did look very cute.
Her eyes glanced at the few people left in the house. Almost all of them were the core figures of the Long family. The white-bearded man was her great grandfather, Long Zhentian. The man who had just sent the High Priest out was her grandfather, Long Batian. She had met them during her childhood. Then, there was a muscular man in his thirties. This person was needless to say, Long Aotian’s father—Long Potian.
On the right side was a devastatingly beautiful woman who was standing still silently. Her name was Long Yuqing. She was Long Shiyan’s paternal aunt and the future main wife of Long Aotian. Of course, if they followed the plot, then Long Yuqing and Long Shiyan would become siblings.
The woman was around seventeen or eighteen. Her appearance was pleasant as her movements were graceful. Like a fairy, her body was enveloped within a pure white dress. In short, she was a stunning beauty.
Long Shiyan couldn’t help but gaze at her eyes. No wonder. No wonder she will become the main wife of Long Aotian and will bring a calamity. It was no wonder that the male lead will lose his resistance to her attractiveness.
While the male lead’s body was young, he was also an adult in his past life. His heart had long been ripe. But whenever he saw such a beautiful aunt, he couldn’t help but be secretly attracted to her.
For the male lead, the moral bottom line was to resist his secret love for his aunt. Later, after many hardships, he finally embraced his secret love and married his paternal aunt.
Long Yuqing didn’t speak much and her personality was relatively cold. Seeing that Long Shiyan had been staring at her, she could not help but frown. Taking flowery steps toward Long Shiyan, Long Yuqing’s lips parted. “Why are you staring so intensely at your aunt?”
Long Shiyan burst into a lovely and innocent smile as she boasted, “My aunt is very beautiful. She is like a fairy who is free from worldly affairs. She is the most beautiful girl that I have ever seen!” Although Long Shiyan was young and cute, the lethality of her beauty was immense.
“You, little girl…” Long Yuqing’s pretty face couldn’t help but blush, which caused her to become even more attractive. If an ordinary man witnessed it, then he would most definitely receive a nosebleed.
As far as Long Shiyan knew, there were many men in the palace and there were only a few beautiful women who can compare with Long Yuqing. Among them, there was the forgotten Dark Goddess, the Radiant Church’s Radiant Saint Christina, and finally, the elven princess.
If the winning factor was by the value of her strange pheromones and her Lolita status, then Long Shiyan would be on top. But on the scale of beauty, she was still a bit worse compared to Long Yuqing.
Of course, she wasn’t the same person as the original work’s Long Shiyan.
“Ha ha ha…” The old man next to her suddenly burst out into laughter. He shook his cane and smiled. “Little Yan Yan, this must be the first time you have seen Qing’er. It was no wonder you were looking at Qing’er so much.”
“Yes, Qing’er has been away in order to study at the Holy Spirit Magic School. Since Qing’er hasn’t been wandering outside, Yan Yan has never met Qing’er before.” Long Yuqing smiled softly. In fact, she either intentionally or unintentionally skipped mentioning Long Shiyan’s parents.
Several people knew that she didn’t want to mention them and decided to follow her lead.
“Yeah!” Long Shiyan’s grandfather, Long Batian, also spoke emotionally. “The children born in Qing Dynasty are really beautiful. The average boy and girl wouldn’t be able to resist their beauty.”
Next to him, Long Potian also nodded. With a deep and heavy voice, he spoke, “But being too beautiful will bring great troubles.”
“Trouble?” The white-haired old man couldn’t help but stare at his last grandson.
Long Potian hesitated for a moment and then replied, “Ever since I have recently seen Qing’er, I have been thinking about it for a long time. I have been waiting for the right time to talk about it…” However, the old man was interrupted by an angry roar. “That child, Shuang’er, actually dared to ignore Qing’er’s decision! This is truly irritating!”
“Brother.” Long Yuqing also turned to Long Potian. “Qing’er still doesn’t want to get married.”
“I don’t care what method you use, but you can’t force Qing’er to do the things that she doesn’t like doing. If you don’t, I will personally find and persuade that child tomorrow.” The old man’s face was red, obviously already filled to the brim with anger.
“Father, don’t get too angry. I will find a way out of this,” Long Potian quickly promised, “No one can force her to do things that she doesn’t want to do.”
Long Shiyan’s eyes widened as she looked down. Her hands were playing with her dress as she pretended to be a child who didn’t know anything.
Her great grandfather’s name was Long Zhentian. He was once the great hero who followed the ancestors of the Ling family. He had every right to fight against the court, so he had every right to boast. Even today, the current emperor would be somewhat polite when meeting him.
However, as far as she knew, today’s Long family was indeed very strong. Even the emperor does not dare to oppose them, just like the Nangong and Shangguan families.
In the original work, the emperor coveted the beauty of Long Yuqing. For this reason, he also secretly cultivated his forces. He waited for the death of Long Zhentian in order to disintegrate the military privilege of the Long family and then captured Long Yuqing.
This heist in the original work was indeed successful, and Long Yuqing was helpless against the emperor. However, everyone knew that anyone who dared to steal Long Aotian’s wife would obtain a bad end. On the same day she was kidnapped, Long Aotian came storming into the palace and almost exterminated the entire royal family on the spot. After saving his wife, he departed.
Almost no one in the entire palace was spared. The empire was damaged. The emperor’s younger brothers began to support Long Aotian to become the next emperor. However, he was haughty and aloof from political matters. Naturally, Long Aotian dismissed the position of emperor and took his wife and family members away.
After his departure, the empire became what it was. There was no further explanation in the text, but all the blood lost in the imperial palace could indeed prove the combat prowess of Long Aotian. You must know that the emperor was the strongest ruler in the East part of the continent. But, the empire easily turned into ruins due to Long Aotian’s anger.
“Father, what about Yan Yan? Don’t you care about her?” QingYu said with a hint of resentment, if it wasn’t for Long Zhentian, then she would have flipped out. She was extremely worried about Long Shiyan.
“Hehe, this old fellow unexpectedly forgot.” Long Zhentian chuckled as he stroked his beard. He then looked at the Long Shiyan with concern. “Do you feel unwell?”
Long Shiyan lifted her head as she shook it slightly. She smiled beautifully. “Yan Yan doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all. Yan Yan feels alright.”
