4.8[Mommy Villainess (The Lady with the Crab Mallet)] *** [Original book cover. Artwork by Artist Michiro for WN Author sola_cola.] *** In Tilly's past life, she was a villainess who neglected her husband and son for power. Then, the "real woman of the prophecy" came and took them away from her. When she failed to seize the throne for herself, she was executed for all the crimes she committed. Then, came her rebirth. She wants to meet her son again so she vowed to be a good person this time. Good enough to seduce Captain Kiho--- her husband in her past life. But soon, she realized that flirting with the captain is the least of her worry. After all, she discovered that her "evilness" in the past was caused by the true villain--- someone who wanted her dead to steal the special power that she didn't know she possessed. Power that has something to do with the Four Ancient Beasts of the Moonchester Empire: The Red Phoenix, the Blue Dragon, the Golden Tiger, and The Black Serpent. Apparently, she's the Beast Priestess... ... and her lineage isn't supposed to exist anymore. Because of her blood, there are people who want her gone. So now, aside from having a happy life with Kiho and their son, she has a new goal: to burn down the b*tches who want to ruin her family again. *** [EXCERPT] *** [‘Why am I so horny tonight?’] Tilly thought to herself while sucking the crab leg suggestively. And then, she noticed that Captain Kiho gulped while staring at her mouth. [‘Ah, I’m not the only who’s hot and bothered here.’] She didn’t know if it was the alcohol in her system or her desperation to have a child… … but she suddenly felt like flirting with him. They were bound to get married and have a child together anyway. “Captain,” said Tilly as soon as she pulled the crab leg out of her mouth. “I can clearly see that we’re both attracted to each other. Shall we spend the night together?” Kiho remained pokerfaced but she saw panic cross his now glowing yellowish eyes. Ah, the captain was flustered. “My lady, you seem to be really drunk.” She walked towards him and when he didn’t move an inch, she stood in front of him and looked up at him with a grin. “Captain, are you the type of man who will only sleep with his betrothed?” “That seems to be the case, my lady.” He said that as if he was forcing the words out of his mouth. Plus, she could see in his eyes that he was conflicted– that it was hard for him to reject her. [‘Aw, I didn’t know that I have this kind of effect on my ex-husband.’] Or perhaps she just didn’t pay attention in the past. “Captain, I have a solution to your problem,” said Tilly in a playful voice. Then, she stood on her toes and whispered in Kiho’s ear. “Let’s get married.”
In the relic streets of the Western Lands, where all the nobles and peasants share the same illiberal customs under the Western Temple's rule. This was just the perfect place for all the ladies -nobles and peasants, the tainted and pure -to create the perfect disturbance for this tedious lifestyle. - "Sister! Have you heard the news -Damen Knightly, he's here!~" the girl laughed giddily. "Mind your manners young lady, I haven't finished writing my proposal yet." A high feminine voice answered in tone, she had been writing for hours now. "Tomorrow I'll be meeting the man of my dreams, ehehe~" (Yes, and I'll be the most beautiful woman in the century). (~Ahh), Lustful cries and hopeless cheers have infiltrated the young brazen minds of the ladies in West lands. They had vowed for this moment as news spread from the Eastern walls that Damen- the unworldly beauty of a being had arrived home. If by chance you'd ask the maidens of the East about romance, this is how they would spell it - DAMEN. Northerns were known for their love of books about lust and passion, but they only share one genre in common -DAMEN. Southerns never missed out the fun, journalizing and literature is where they excelled at, and their hottest topic? -DAMEN. In the name of Damen Knightly, the man is known for his divine looks that had stirred the entire maidens of the four regions into corruptness. His name is tarnished by the maiden's illicit cries, tainting his reputation as the Centuries' Casanova. Though they were only rumors that spiked from his ferocious beauty, is there any way for this young heir to live his life peacefully and even settle for marriage?
I was reading a story called 'Ignis's Path to Power', sympathizing the male lead who has lost everything-even his happiness-to become strong and save the Empyrea's citizens, before going to bed. "Why? Why did he have to sacrifice so much only to get nothing in return? Why can't he at least obtain happiness and live happily ever after?" Oddly, I dreamt of saving that very exact main lead in one of his early bad days while lucid dreaming. I continued to lucid dreaming about saving him night after night until... "Huh? Where am I? Wait, wait, wait. Maybe I'm just lucid dreaming right now... Ouch! Or maybe not."
