They All Want to Be My Female Lead – Chapter 26


  1. Is it okay not to take it off?

Following his beautiful master’s instructions, Yan Zhen came to the back mountain of the city lord’s mansion and found a place rarely visited. After clearing it out a bit, he made an empty area and had her set up a Gathering Profound Energy Formation, constructing a small cultivation paradise.

As the formation operated, the world energy from all around converged, forming a visible thin mist.

Gathering Profound Energy Formations also had levels of mastery. Being able to materialize the world energy here that was so thin showed how exquisite this formation was.

The key point was that this formation basically did not require any expensive materials, mainly relying on a clever utilization of the energy’s magnetic field.

For a full month, Yan Zhen cultivated here, each session lasting an entire day.

And his cultivation level smoothly advanced to Mystic Disciple 6th stage.

In one month, going from 3rd stage to 6th stage – such a cultivation speed was likely unrivaled in the entire Jialo Kingdom.

Even Chen Xi was surprised by Yan Zhen’s performance, because she remembered that in the previous life, Yan Zhen only advanced to 5th stage in a month.

For someone who had fully opened their Mystic Passes, advancing one stage per month with the help of the Gathering Profound Energy Formation was the normal standard. Advancing two stages in a month was extremely outstanding even among geniuses. Advancing three stages was quite absurd.

Yan Zhen also didn’t know why. He always chose to skip the cultivation plot developments with one click. After skipping, he discovered he was at 6th stage.

Now, not only the people around him, but even his own cultivation level had deviated from the script.

[Host need not worry. The gap between each Mystic Disciple stage is very small and does not really affect the plot.]

“Sigh, I have it rough. Even though I’m still a newbie actor, why do I have to go through things like temporary script additions and the personality collapse of opposing roles as soon as I debut…”

Yan Meng’er was still fine. The problem was Huangfu Wenqing.

Thinking of this fiancée, Yan Zhen got a big headache.

Although her amount of scenes was not very high, her significance was extraordinary.

But Huangfu Wenqing not only did not break off the engagement, she even formed a strange contract with him and said things similar to a love confession.

In any case, all aspects completely diverged from the script. Who knew what went wrong.

Fortunately, he forcibly rounded it off and brought the key two-year battle agreement back on track.

Although the agreed content was a bit different from the script, it was still acceptable.

For the two-year battle agreement, he first had to win.

After winning, he would find a way to make Huangfu Wenqing dislike him, like accidentally exposing that he had ambiguous relations with both her master and grand-master, or simply putting on the scoundrel face of “I’m going to have both master and disciple”.

That way, even if Huangfu Wenqing lost, she wouldn’t want to marry him. Yan Zhen would refuse to marry her in turn, conforming to the plot.

Yan Zhen was very satisfied with the plan he came up with. Stretching his body, he returned to the mansion.

Yan Meng’er was waiting in Yan Zhen’s courtyard as always. Seeing him, she immediately came to greet him.

“Cousin, you’re back. Meng’er stewed a medicinal porridge today. Eating it can relieve fatigue. Come try some, Cousin?”

Yan Zhen made an agreeing noise, pulled over a chair and sat like a big master. He saw a bowl, spoon and clay pot on the table before him.

Opening the pot lid, white steam wafted out. The fragrance of rice, herbs and meat mixed together, making one’s mouth water.

Yan Meng’er quickly filled a big bowl full of porridge for Yan Zhen, then sat to the side watching him eat with an expectant face.

Yan Zhen scooped a spoonful into his mouth, almost swallowing the spoon as well.

——This girl’s cooking skills were getting better and better. Moreover, the ingredients in the porridge seemed to be quite pricey.

“Cousin, is the taste okay?”

“It’s alright.”

“If Cousin likes it then drink more. There’s still plenty~”

“You eat too.”

“Meng’er already ate. This is specially for Cousin.”

After finishing the medicinal porridge, Yan Zhen put down the bowl and spoon and said to Yan Meng’er:

“Meng’er, you’ve been serving me for a month now. This month, your care for me has reached an omnipresent level, letting me live very comfortably. So, as agreed, I forgive you now.”

“Cousin, you…you really mean it?” Yan Meng’er was stunned at first, then wild with joy. Glistening tears involuntarily welled up in her beautiful eyes. “You really forgive Meng’er?”

“Of course it’s real.”

After all, it was understandable for Yan Meng’er to distance herself from him. She even apologized to him. Continuing to be angry would instead make him seem petty.

The script also wrote that one year after Yan Zhen recovered his talent, he started talking to Yan Meng’er again. Although it wasn’t to the degree of completely thawing the ice, it was just him not wanting to lose face.

Plus, Yan Meng’er not only took the initiative to apologize, but wholeheartedly served him, much more sensible than the Yan Meng’er in the script. Forgiving her a bit earlier was fine.

“Cousin forgave Meng’er, really forgave Meng’er. How wonderful, how wonderful, wuwuwu…”

Even though Yan Meng’er had lived two lives, she couldn’t help but cry at this moment, tears falling like scattered pearls.

Yan Zhen patted her head and comforted: “Alright, don’t cry. Looks like I bullied you.”

Hearing him say that, Yan Meng’er cried even harder. She threw herself into Yan Zhen’s embrace and hugged him tightly.

“Cousin, I’m sorry. Meng’er absolutely won’t treat you that way again. Meng’er already knows how painful it is to be distanced by an important person. Meng’er doesn’t want to experience that pain again. Meng’er wants to be together with Cousin forever!”

The maiden’s heartfelt confession slightly touched Yan Zhen.

Regarding the feelings between the cousins, the script only gave a simple description, so Yan Zhen didn’t have too deep an experience of it.

Until this moment.

——So this girl regretted it to this degree? Feels a bit like brother complex.

“Don’t say misleading things. Let the past stay in the past. Take off the collar on your neck, there’s no need to keep doing this.”

Yan Meng’er’s crying suddenly quieted. After a long while, she finally raised her crying kitten-like enchanting face from Yan Zhen’s embrace and weakly said:

“Is it okay not to take it off?”

Yan Zhen was stunned: “Huh?”

“Be-because, Meng’er said she would be Cousin Yan Zhen’s slave for life. Since it was said, it can’t be taken back. Otherwise wouldn’t Meng’er be a person who doesn’t keep her word?”

“That’s true, but don’t you feel the collar is uncomfortable? In all senses of the word.”

“This collar belongs to Cousin. As long as it’s Cousin’s, Meng’er won’t feel uncomfortable. Rather, there’s a meaning of…of a bond between you and me in it. Meng’er really likes it~”


——Cousins don’t need this kind of weird bond! This girl doesn’t really have a brother complex, right? Incest, yikes!

Just as he was about to properly educate his impure-minded cousin, an angry roar came from outside the courtyard:

“Yan Zhen, let go of Meng’er!”

This voice sounded a bit familiar. Seemed to be Yan Meng’er’s older cousin called “Yan Ming”?

Oh right, because he leveled up, cannon fodder villains would come to make trouble for him then get slapped in the face.

A common trope in the fantasy world. The system also prompted that this was a key plot for showing off and face-slapping.
