4.7*NO RAPE and major Misunderstandings!* If she could use any three words to describe herself, Jiang Yue would say that she is rich, beautiful, and extremely smart. Unfortunately, she took these for granted in her past life, causing her downfall. After reincarnating to her fifteen year old self, Jiang Yue wants only three things: to build an empire, spend more time with the people who love her and live a happy life. ... In his past life, he was unable to express his love for Jiang Yue. Now that he has reincarnated, all he wants to do is show Jiang Yue how much he loves her. If she wants only three things, then he wants only three things: to build an empire for her, to spend more time with her, and live a happy life with her. ----- Mixed with a little hint of mind-boggling mysteries and secrets, what happens when two reincarnated individuals meet and fall in love? ----- "Do you believe in reincarnation?" Fu Jin's question instantly made Jiang Yue froze. She remembered how she was the one who asked this question when they first met. "Of course I do." She answered. She was the living proof that reincarnation existed. "Why are you asking that?" "Well... if I tell you that I reincarnated just to make you mine, would you believe me?" His question immediately gave Jiang Yue goosebumps. She did not answer him, instead, she turned around so she could face him. Their gazes met. "Then if you were given a chance to reincarnate, would you find me again and make me yours?" She asked. "Of course." He answered, as he tucked a loose strand of her hair behind her ear. "I would find you and wait for you Mrs. Fu. Even if it would have taken million years and million lifetimes." Fu Jin's answer instantly made Jiang Yue smile. However, this time, a mysterious light flashed in her eyes. Maybe, Fu Jin's words were true. Maybe, he also reincarnated just like her. And maybe... just maybe, their souls were already connected, long before they reincarnated. ----- Updates: 2-3 Chapters everyday 5 Chapters every friday for TGIF There will be 7 ARCS and less than 500 Chapters.

4.7"Stay with me and I will give you everything your heart desires. For you, my darling, I would part the mountains, split the sea, and cause havoc on Earth just to have you." - - - - In every love story, there's always a vengeful and venomous fiancée who was engaged to the rich and handsome CEO that fell for the poor, but gentle and innocent female lead. In his greed for her love, he broke his poor fiancée whose love drove her to the brink of insanity. No one ever cared about how the fiancée felt. Zhao Lifei was prepped her entire life to marry one man, but suddenly, his heart was captured by another. She was face-slapped, destroyed, and disowned for loving Zheng Tianyi. She was willing to sacrifice her youth, time, and heart for the man, but all she got was pain and despair. It took two harsh, but awakening years for Zhao Lifei to finally understand the mistakes she has made in the past. After her redemption, it was now Zhao Lifei's turn to experience a love grander than the female lead. Smarter, feistier, and wittier, Zhao Lifei knew how to survive the cruel, backstabbing, and harsh upper-class society was. "A bastard fiancé that broke my heart? Screw him, I'll find someone richer!" "All of my friends have abandoned me? Whatever, I'll find better ones!" "My parents disowned me? That's fine, my grandfather is wealthier and more powerful than both of them combined!" To the polar opposite of the snarky Zhao Lifei, was the incredibly wealthy and powerful, yet ruthlessly cold Yang Feng. Yang Feng, the King of the Business Empire, was a man to be feared. Heart of ice, eyes of stone, merciless but enticingly handsome, there was not a single person in this world that dared to offend him. Many have tried, but none had succeeded in garnering his attention. That is, until his path unexpectedly collides with Zhao Lifei. Challenges will arise, chaos will commence, and drama will ensue. But then again, what is a love story without disturbance? They say love without conflict is just a simple crush and the story of Zhao Lifei and Yang Feng was anything but that. - - - - - Note: This is an original story by me (xincerely) and not a translation :) Story Discord: https://discord.gg/N5zzn6t Update Schedule: 2 chapters per day.

4.6She had always thought that he was a devil in human flesh. She feared him and hated him for the sins he committed but after seeing how much he changed to be a better person for her, it took her a great amount of courage to forgive him since by the time she found out the truth about him, she had already loved him. From being the worst husband and father to the best husband and father one can ever have, Lu Yifeng was given a second chance to correct every wrong deed he did. He was the man who destroyed their family and it took death to make him realize his wrongdoings. . . . . "Meilin, come here." She turned to her husband and smiled, "Mr. Lu, we are at work, didn't we already agreed to behave while we're here?" "I want to have an affair with my secretary." Lu Yifeng said calmly. "Can I?" Xia Meilin narrowed her eyes, "No." He stood up and walked toward her which made Xia Meilin take a few steps backward away from him when she saw the dangerous look on Lu Yifeng's eyes. She stopped when she felt the cold wall against her back. Lu Yifeng ended up cornering her. "I'm the President of this company, I do whatever I want to do, including having an affair with my secretary." Xia Meilin refused to back down that's why she ended up glaring at him. "Do you want to get beat up by your wife?" The side of his lips curled up into a smirk, "Will she now?" He cupped her chin and bowed his head to place a soft kiss on her lips. "Then stop acting as my secretary. You're my wife, it's your job to watch over your husband. If you want to have a salary, then I can give you all my money." A faint blush appeared on Xia Meilin's cheeks after she has been kissed by him. She pouted and turned her head away, "I just want to try how it feels to work as your secretary." ------ Discord: https://discord.gg/z56kkGG Twitter: @berriapplepi Please support me by buying me a ko-fi: ko-fi.com/berriapplepi This is an Original Novel by berriapplepi (me) Modern Fairytale series: The Devil's Sleeping Beauty (Sleeping Beauty) Ten Years Late: The Bullied Husband(Little Red Riding Hood) Beast Under Her Dress: Princess, Don't Run!

4.6“You’re not taking me to bed. Ever.” “Who said it had to be on the bed?” “What?! You wouldn’t dare kick me off the bed, and I will not share it with you!” “The only reason I would force you out is so I can have you on the floor.” She gritted her teeth and glared at her grinning husband. “Go fuck yourself!” she hissed. “Only if you show me how,” he winked back.

4.7Like almost every dramatic romance novel, Lily Qin’s story began with an evil stepmother, a scheming stepsister, and a dumb ex-fiance. At twenty, she fell prey to their grand scheme and became the laughingstock of the country. In despair, she left. Seven years later, Lily Qin rose from the ashes. She was labeled as an empress, an iron lady, a genius, and a prodigy. She was Miss Tycoon. Now, at twenty-seven, Lily Qin was an established businesswoman who was single-handedly controlling her multinational company abroad. She was beautiful, smart, and successful. Women envied her while men couldn’t help but worship her ethereal beauty. With her devastating past, everyone had assumed that Lily would exact revenge on the people who had wronged her. Who would have guessed that behind that beaming smile of hers was a numb heart that aimed only to make more profit? “Revenge?” Her lips slowly curved into a smirk. “Don’t flatter yourself. This is all about profit. I only want you to pay for what you owe me…” She then looked at her fiery red nails. “Of course, I added a little interest here and there. After all, this is still business.” --- Zhuo Jingren’s love for Lily Qin was something that only he knew. Ever since they were children, he had his eyes on her. Yet, every time he had tried to confess, he would end up fainting from nervousness. So when Lily Qin promised to marry him if he became richer than her, Zhou Jingren did not hesitate to leave the orphanage and work his way up just to become her man. Who would have thought that years later, when he was successful and feared by many, he would come back to an engaged Lily Qin? Then she mistook him for an escort after eating his tofu? Preposterous! The worst thing was, she seemed to have forgotten everything about him. Hadn’t she promised to marry him the moment he became more prominent than her family? Now, after taking advantage of him, she dared to run away? This woman was a liar! He gritted his teeth as he watched her approach him. He was about to say something mean when she suddenly spoke. “Are you my new bodyguard?” She did not even wait for him to answer before tossing her car keys at him. “Drive. Let’s go wreak some havoc.” Thus, the mafia’s big boss became Lily Qin’s bodyguard. --- “So you want to marry me?” she asked the devilishly handsome man in front of her. “As a businesswoman, it is only natural that you take responsibility for what you did,” he shamelessly said, his eyes never leaving hers. “What do I gain?” she asked while playing with a glass of wine in her hands. “As a businesswoman, I won’t do anything that doesn’t profit me.” “Is my body not enough?” Lily stifled a laugh at the man’s shameless words. “Of course not!” A flash of mirth was seen in Zhuo Jingren’s eyes as he pulled out three flashcards: one of a black check-mark drawing, one of Mickey Mouse picture, and one of a ball and a hoop picture. “What is this?” Confusion laced her beautiful face. Did this man think she was a child? “Profits Miss Qin. These stocks are already under your name. As an opportunist, you are liable to marrying me for receiving stocks from these three international companies,” he answered. “Stocks?” she asked as the realization hit her. Did he buy her stocks from Nikke, Disneyworld and MBasketball Association in advance? Did he assume that she would marry him? Just how confident was this man? “My body plus these shares should be enough to make you say yes, right?” he asked. “After all, you already took advantage of my body. This is your responsibility.” And thus, Lily Qin’s bodyguard became her husband. .... There is no RAPE or MAJOR MISUNDERSTANDINGS. WARNING: FL is scheming and evil.

4.4In her previous lifetime, they had married for five years. He meant everything to her, but she was thrown away like an old shoe. After her rebirth, she gave him a divorce contract preemptively— “Divorce after one year, the terms of the contract are as follows: husband and wife shall not share a room or bed.

We will not allow external factors to affect our home, and we’ll be just like the saying 'if you do not abandon me, I will always be at your side until the end of my life'.” Xie Limo met Yun Bixue's determined gaze and without thinking, he reached out his finger and sealed the promise before intertwining their fingers together.
