She needed his protection and she was his savior. There was only one problem, that man lost his memory. This convenience marriage might just be a ticking bomb, one that could explode and burnt in a second when he gained his memory. Who exactly he is? What will happen when the man regains his memories? Whether it's a happily ever after or not, it depends on their love. Will love blossom? Only time will tell. Hope you will enjoy this ancient contractual marriage! :) _____________________________________ Taken from Chapter 17 : Yao Ling squinted her eyes at him again, "Do you also look at other females like that?" Yao Ying was dumbfounded. Where was the jealousy coming from? How come it changed from customers to females? He wanted to cry again. Woman… They could be a bit unreasonable. "Of course not, Wife. I'm only looking at you." "Really?" "Really." Yao Ying answered firmly. Before he dug himself another grave, Yao Ying decided to distract his little wife again. He used his final move. When a woman was being unreasonable, just shut her up and kissed her. He hugged Yao Ling closer and kissed her until she forgot everything. That was how he saved himself that night. _____________________________________ Join His Peasant Wife: Yao Ling Discord Channel: https://discord.gg/xY29wHb Here is the link if you want to buy me a cup of coffee! http://ko-fi.com/missoline87 or you can directly donate to my PayPal: https://paypal.me/missoline87 Thank you very much! ^^ *hugs* I am thankful for your support.

The problem didn't end with just the dilemma of the Yellow Turbans Army. It appeared that other than him, there were 99 others from the modern world that reincarnated into this timeline with him as well.
