Chapter 2 - The Rebirth of a Loser, an Impromptu Extra Scene

  1. The Rebirth of a Loser, an Impromptu Extra Scene

Yan Menger, at the center of the crowd, looked around in a daze, her eyes gradually becoming incredulous.

This was the martial arts arena of the City Lord’s Mansion in Wutang City. Several familiar fellow clan members and friends had become younger, and so had she—

“I… I really went back to when I was fifteen?”

As the memories in her mind gradually became clear, Yan Menger suddenly came to her senses. Her gaze swept past the surging crowd and finally spotted the figure she had been longing for day and night under a tree.

“Cousin Yan Zhen…”

It was really him, Cousin Yan Zhen.

Yan Menger only felt her eyes become hot, and her vision blurred.

At this time, Yan Zhen was still at the third stage of Mystic Disciple. He was mocked and ridiculed by everyone during the cultivation test in the mansion. Not only did she not speak up for him, but she also actively avoided his congratulatory gaze, completely burying the feelings they had cultivated for nearly ten years.

No, even before this, she had already hurt Yan Zhen’s heart.

She used to be extremely vain.

When Yan Zhen’s cultivation level dropped, at first, she still treated him the same as before and even said, “It’s Menger’s turn to take care of Cousin.” She originally thought it could go on like this, but as the gossip around her increased, Yan Menger gradually couldn’t bear it.

“Yan Zhen has already become trash, yet that Yan Menger is still clinging to him, hehehe~”

“She’s probably trying to use his identity as the young master to seek benefits, right?”

“I think they may have already ‘done it,’ so she has no choice but to pretend to be blind.”

Hearing these malicious rumors, Yan Menger felt extremely uncomfortable and actively avoided Yan Zhen, no longer interacting with him.

Even though she liked him.

Later, Yan Zhen was forcefully dumped by that woman. Unable to bear the humiliation, he ran to the back mountain and used his fists to frantically hit a tree, hitting until his hands were bleeding non-stop, hating his own powerlessness.

Yan Menger really wanted to go up and comfort him, saying, “Cousin, don’t cry. You still have Menger,” but she didn’t have the courage to stand in front of Yan Zhen again. She could only hide behind a rock, watching the young man howling at the sky while her tears flowed endlessly.

Afterward, Yan Zhen suddenly rose again. Not only did his talent return and his cultivation level recover, but he also defeated “Yan Mo,” who was considered the most promising at that time, in three moves during the mansion’s minor competition.

Yan Zhen’s reputation immediately returned. Yan Menger was very happy, thinking that no one would dare to gossip about them anymore, and actively tried to repair their relationship.

However, it was all too late. No matter what Yan Menger did, Yan Zhen only had a strange and polite smile on his face.

Yan Menger cried all night because of this.

It wasn’t until much, much later, when Yan Zhen had truly grown up and matured, that he met Yan Menger again. By then, he had already let go of the past and had become her steady and reliable cousin again.

But she couldn’t let go of her feelings for him. It seemed to have become an obsession. Every night, she would question herself:

Why couldn’t she bravely stay by his side back then and instead chose to run away?

The answer was:

You were too cowardly. Cowardly people don’t deserve love.

This obsession almost became her heart demon. Afterward, whenever she faced any suitor, she found it difficult to have feelings for them again.

She became unable to fall in love with anyone else.

On the day of Yan Zhen’s grand wedding, Yan Menger hugged her cousin Yan Ruyu, who shared the same pain, and cried inconsolably under the covers. In a daze, she heard a vast voice:

“If you had another chance, what would you choose?”

She answered without hesitation:

“I would tightly hold his hand and never let go again!”

So, she was reborn.

Yan Zhen was a bit puzzled. According to the script, Yan Menger felt guilty and didn’t dare to meet his gaze. Why was she staring at him with those big, bright eyes for so long? Her eyes even revealed a resentful meaning, as if he had abandoned her after leading her on.

The plot completion percentage on the system interface changed to 75%. There was still a little bit left. Yan Zhen felt that he should do something, but then he saw Yan Menger suddenly push through the crowd surrounding her and walk quickly towards him.

“Cousin Yan Zhen!”

Yan Menger came up to Yan Zhen, grabbed his hand, and held it tightly.

Yan Zhen was stunned. Looking at the pretty girl in front of him, he felt completely baffled.

“What… what are you doing?”

“Cousin Yan Zhen, Menger is sorry!” Yan Menger held Yan Zhen’s hands, bent her knees, and knelt down. She looked up at him, her pretty melon seed face streaked with hot tears. “It was Menger’s fault. Menger was too cowardly, so she did such a heartless thing and hurt our years of friendship.”

The girl apologized and cried at the same time:

“Menger will never do this again. She will never abandon Cousin Yan Zhen again. Please forgive Menger and let Menger continue to stay by your side, okay?”

The entire arena fell into silence. Everyone present was dumbfounded, and even Yan Zhen was at a loss because of Yan Menger.

No, what’s going on? Yan Menger suddenly ran over to kneel and apologize. What kind of development is this? Did he remember the script wrong?

Yan Zhen quickly summoned the system interface and glanced at the script on it, confirming that this scene was not in the script at all!

Could this be the legendary impromptu extra scene?

How the hell was he supposed to respond to this? He was just a newbie actor, not some veteran!

Director! No, system! Come out and deal with this little vixen. Deduct her chicken legs for adding an extra scene!

【…Detecting an unknown error. Investigating the cause. The host can improvise the scene for now】

Improvise my ass. I told you I’m a newbie!

Yan Zhen was a bit frantic inside, but his face remained impassive.

When you don’t know how to act, just maintain a poker face and let the other person perform.

Seeing Yan Zhen’s indifferent lack of response, Yan Menger only felt a slight pain in her heart, and a trace of sorrow appeared in her eyes.

“That’s right. Menger made such a thorough mistake. How can she be easily forgiven? Menger was daydreaming.”

The girl bit her lip and pleaded pitifully again:

“Then, can you give Menger a chance to atone? Menger will definitely reflect on her mistakes and work hard to make up for the harm done to Cousin Yan Zhen until Cousin Yan Zhen is satisfied. Menger will do anything as long as Cousin Yan Zhen can forgive Menger!”


Yan Zhen didn’t know what to say. He was afraid that if he answered incorrectly, the plot would go off track.

By the way, could this Yan Menger stop rubbing his hand against her chest area?

If this continues, bro, this is going to get serious!

“Cousin Yan Zhen, do you agree?” Yan Menger’s tears turned into laughter, and her lovely melon seed face was filled with joy. “That’s great, that’s great! Menger will definitely not disappoint Cousin Yan Zhen again… Menger likes Cousin Yan Zhen the most!”

She let go of Yan Zhen’s hand and hugged his legs instead, rubbing her fair and delicate face against them like a puppy.

It was only at this point that people reacted from the shock. One of Yan Menger’s elder brothers flushed with anger and said in exasperation:

“Menger, what are you doing? You’re actually apologizing to a piece of trash!?”

Yan Menger’s admirer also said loudly:

“That’s right, Menger. He, Yan Zhen, has been stuck at the third stage for three years. Naturally, you should stay away from him. Otherwise, what if you catch his strange disease of randomly dropping levels?!”

Rebirth!? Just who brought a person from the future to disrupt the plot? And the system is useless, why is it letting other forces disrupt the protagonist? Now I get why is the protagonist having a hard time? But I expect to hear why this is happening.
