4.71Ming Cheng, former beggar who used to live on the streets, enters the Heavenly Emperor's Palace as a servant. While at the same time, in another world, poor university student Xiao Ying falls into a coma, after a devastating car accident. Suddenly, upon waking up, Xiao Ying is thrust into a chair, behind a screen, and told, by a suspicious note, that he will be able to regain his life and wake up in his world, once again, if, and only if, he manages guide the Emperor's one and only lost son - Ming Cheng - to the throne. ________________________________________________________________ "The Legendary Tale of the Holy Emperor Ming Cheng," Xiao Ying mused to himself, almost bursting out into delirious laughter, was the story that he had once written and published online to absolutely no reception. And now, some sadistic, messed up deity had deigned his unpopular wreck of a work as his great trial to stave off death! At that thought, Xiao Ying really did laugh, dropping to his knees and throwing his head into his hands. He was supposed to guide his own, fucking protagonist, brought to life before his very eyes, to his death - just so Xiao Ying could go back to experience his own proper one at a later date. Didn't this deity know that he had written a tragedy?! Ming Cheng would steadily work his way upwards through the Palace, becoming closer and closer to the emperor, until one day, he was discovered to be the emperor's long lost son - the small boy who had vanished one night during a legendary bad storm - finally achieving all the great power that he had worked so hard to earn and deserved! Only for it all, in the end, to be cruelly stripped away from him, as he dies on his wedding night:Xioa Ying's attempt to hastily end the book, once he realised that there was no hope for it. Now older and hypothetically wiser, he decided that it would be idiotic to just ignore the situation he was in, considering the consequences of such a thing were unknown. He really had no choice but to play along and become the system to guide his protagonist.
Leon is Prince Charming. Peasant Ellie is the virtuous heroine. And Dahlia is the antagonist who will stand in-between their love until she was struck by gods wrath and die without being cried after. The foreordained couple thus lived happily ever after. Their story was as easy as this. ‘How to Become Princess Consort’ was my very own first published work. The book that turned me from some no-name blogger into an author when I was still in Highschool. I was lucky to strike the iron while it was still hot. The genre was at its peak; romance, princes and princesses, overcoming hardships and fate together… a happy ending, resulting in a dreamy morganatic marriage was every young maiden’s daydream that time. My improved Cinderella Story became one of the greatest heart-throb online hits that time, but it eventually faded away in an endless stream of new releases. My work was nothing special, had no big conspiracies or any mind bugging twist and turns, so it got forgotten over time, but I could never forget. There was a reason I couldn’t. It was Dahlia. As I became older, I realised that I did a horrible thing to Dahlia, whom I created solely to be the rival girl, a mere tool for the plot to continue on. Years after the release, I re-read my book from the view of a matured and more seasoned author and felt the stinging sensation of guilt. I told myself: If only I could rewrite history… And then, I woke up as Leons ex-fiancée, Dahlia Rubin, the villainess of my own story! ________________ I do not own the cover picture, I found it on the internet and just did some very minor adjustments.
