They All Want to Be My Female Lead – Chapter 21

Chapter 21 - Your purchases here are all free of charge

Chapter 21 : Your purchases here are all free of charge

What’s going on now? Bullying him just because he’s a newcomer actor? Even a minor villain is not following the script, huh?!

Yan Zhen was fuming with rage. He went up and delivered a kick, knocking Ao Ge down, leaving several large footprints on his face before letting him off.

Ao Ge grunted and groaned, not daring to retaliate at all, obediently laying on the ground playing dead, just like his two lackey guards.

“Cousin, don’t be angry. This guy isn’t worth it,” the two women consoled him in turn, unaware that Yan Zhen’s anger was not what they thought.

[Ding! Congratulations to the host for completing the critical plot ‘A Little Test,’ successfully trampling the young master Ao Ge underfoot. You may claim the reward from the interface.]


This counts as completing it? Although he did indeed stomp on Ao Ge a few times.

But since the plot could be completed, there was nothing to be angry about anymore.

He suddenly felt a little sorry for Ao Ge. Should he wipe the footprints off his face? Ah, haha~

Yan Zhen silently claimed the plot completion reward, another special trump card named “Wisdom Strike.” When activated, it could cause the target’s intelligence to decrease when facing Yan Zhen, hence also known as the “Brilliant Card.”

It was quite powerful as it worked regardless of the target’s cultivation realm.

—Oh, system, didn’t you forget to give me the reward for the apprenticeship plot?

Yan Zhen suddenly remembered this.

[After the plot is completed, the host can claim the reward themselves. Since the host was enchanted by Chen Xi’s silver hair and G-cup breasts last night, he forgot to claim it.]


Yan Zhen was a little embarrassed by the system’s bluntness and quickly closed the system interface, thinking he would claim it later.

The conflict between Yan Zhen and Ao Ge drew attention from those around them. To avoid trouble, the three hurried into the Jinyu Merchant Guild.

Even as a branch, the grandeur of the Jinyu Merchant Guild surpassed the surrounding buildings, not only in outward appearance but also in interior decor.

The shop was spacious but crowded, feeling very lively.

The three headed straight to the women’s clothing section and saw the new dresses mentioned earlier.

There were two styles: one called “Peach Blossom Mirroring Spring,” leaning towards an open type with a slightly higher exposure level; the other called “Bamboo Forest Graceful Shadow,” tightly wrapped in a corset style that could best accentuate the body’s curves.

Yan Meng’er immediately took a liking to the peach-colored one, while Huang Fu Wenqing chose the blue-green one.

When they asked about the price, it was a staggering ten thousand crystal coins.

Because the dresses were embroidered with golden thread runes, not only could they keep one warm in winter and cool in summer, but they could also withstand a certain level of mystic force attacks, already ranking among the best of the first-grade mystic artifacts.

“This is a bit expensive,” said Yan Meng’er, as she did not have that much money.

Huang Fu Wenqing did have the funds, but she didn’t carry that much on her. Back in the royal capital, she usually had servants help with any purchases she wanted to make.

“Buy it if you like it. I’ll treat you both,” Yan Zhen smiled, shaking the money pouch he had just taken out from the system. “I have enough money.”

“Really? Thank you, Cousin! Meng’er loves you the most~” Excited, Yan Meng’er even brazenly planted a kiss on Yan Zhen’s cheek in front of everyone, making his face flush.

“This Yan Meng’er…” Seeing Yan Meng’er’s shameless behavior, Huang Fu Wenqing, who had intended to act more reserved in public, could only steel herself and follow suit, giving Yan Zhen a small peck on the other cheek while softly thanking him.

As a result, Yan Zhen was immediately subjected to the envious gazes of the other men present, forcing him to hurry and pay before leaving with the two women.

However, when they reached the cashier, an unexpected incident occurred.

“—Are you Young Lord Yan Zhen? Your purchases here are all free of charge; no need to pay.”

The beautiful cashier auntie smiled as she said this.

Yan Zhen scratched his head, utterly baffled.

“Why is that?”

The cashier auntie stated that she did not know either; she was merely following orders from above.

Yan Meng’er and Huang Fu Wenqing both had a guess in their hearts, yet they felt it was unlikely.

As for Yan Zhen, he thought of the later plot in the story.

At that time, Yan Zhen and the head of the Jinyu Merchant Guild had already developed a deep sibling-like bond. Any of his purchases within the guild were entirely free, except for the signature treasures of each branch store; he could take whatever he wanted.

But that was the middle-to-late plot! Right now, he didn’t even know that beautiful big sister yet, so how could he have such privileges?

To test the authenticity of this privilege, Yan Zhen went to the medicinal ingredients area and purchased the herbs the beautiful senior-apprenticed sister had asked him to prepare.

Sure enough, when he checked out, another cashier aunt said, “Your purchases here are all free of charge.”

Good things were good, but Yan Zhen could not fathom why this was happening.

With lingering doubts, Yan Zhen, Yan Meng’er, and Huang Fu Wenqing left the Jinyu Merchant Guild. After having a meal at a nearby restaurant, they returned to the Lord’s Mansion.

Along the way, Yan Meng’er tightly hugged the package containing the dress, as if holding a treasure.

It was just a nice dress, not that important. After all, her mentality was no longer that of an innocent young girl. But this could be considered a gift from Yan Zhen, a gift she had not received in over ten years.

In her previous life, she had never imagined she could receive such a meaningful gift from Yan Zhen.

Huang Fu Wenqing felt the same way.

The only gift she had ever received from Yan Zhen in her previous life was an opportunity to cultivate the wind mystic force, or more accurately, something he had allowed her out of respect for their master.

A dress, the kind of thing only given to close ones, was something she dared not even imagine.

“Well then, Yan Zhen, I’ll return to my room first. See you later.”

“Cousin, I’ll come find you again later.”

The two women happily bade farewell, and Yan Zhen returned to his own courtyard. After drawing a large bucket of water into his room and closing the door, he prepared to enter the crystal space again to meet the beautiful senior-apprenticed sister!

Wait, he still hadn’t claimed the system reward for the apprenticeship plot. He quickly claimed it, lest he forget again.

Yan Zhen summoned the system interface, went to the previous critical plot, and clicked to claim the reward.

[Congratulations to the host for obtaining ‘Special Trump Card: Riding the Master’s Ancestor’ x1]

“What the heck?!” Yan Zhen stared at the description and read it aloud: “A card that only the protagonist can use. When activated, it allows the user to push down and defile the beautiful senior-apprenticed sister or other beautiful elders.”


“What use is this?”

[The host is truly foolish. Of course, it’s for riding the master’s ancestor.]

“You’ve got to be kidding me!”

As a righteous protagonist, how could he possibly commit such an unethical act?

But surely the system couldn’t give him a useless reward, could it?

Ah, yes! Yan Zhen remembered again: In the later part of the story, the beautiful senior-apprenticed sister’s friend, that beautiful senior-apprenticed aunt, had been unable to break through her cultivation for many years. So she set her sights on Yan Zhen’s precious body, wanting to dual-cultivate with him. After being rejected, she tried to force herself upon him. Fortunately, Chen Xi arrived in time, preserving his innocence.

This special trump card was perhaps meant to be used in such situations, to prevent his primal yang from being taken by certain lustful senior female cultivators, ensuring this erotic fantasy world remained “heroineless.”

After understanding this, Yan Zhen withdrew the card and calmed his emotions before activating the “Star-Shifting Fire Seal” in his palm.

Whoosh, Yan Zhen vanished from his spot, leaving behind only a limpid lapis lazuli-like crystal sphere quietly hovering in mid-air.
