Winning the Male Lead (Quick Transmigration) - Chapter 2
The dim light made everything around seem ambiguous. Yu Miao’s entire body was nestled in the man’s arms as if she was boneless, and Le Tian hid behind the sofa and stared at them.
Is this what it felt like to be cheated on? What a funny thing to experience.
“Is my mission considered complete?” Le Tian burst into laughter. He can now continue to play his flamboyant playboy role!
System said “Three points. First, after you complete the task, you will leave the world in a week and will not be able to enjoy life in this world. Second, she did not cheat on you but was drugged instead. Third, this man is neither rich nor handsome. In conclusion, it does not meet the cheating conditions, now hurry up and grab your fiancée back.”
Yu Miao had followed her friends in the Entertainment Circle to the “Blue Moon”. The friend said that she was going to let her meet a producer. She had just taken a drink in the private booth, felt dizzy and came out to go to the bathroom. Before she could take two steps, she fell down.
Le Tian was coaxed into comfort by the System saying “not as rich as you and not as handsome”. Without any hesitation, he rushed up to grab the man’s hand and lowered his voice to the stunned man, saying, “Who gave you the guts to touch my woman?”
One thing must be said here. Although saying such domineering lines was awkward, there was a very cool feeling.
The man, full of innocence, was completely speechless. “I did not touch her, she fell to the ground by herself. I studied from Léi Fēng* and was doing a good deed in helping her up. Who dares to touch your fiancée?” He immediately pushed Yu Miao to Le Tian.
(*T/N: Léi Fēng : Communist fighter of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, who was known for his selfless dedication towards the fight for Communism )
Le Tian: “Damn, the plot is not right.”
But the System was excited: “This is a good opportunity to take Yu Miao home to sleep tonight!”
Le Tian: “……I see you are eager for me to be cheated on immediately.”
System: “I’m saying it for your own good.”
Very well, this was very systematic.
Le Tian also knew that the System was right. He had to find a suitable opportunity for Yu Miao to get in contact with Shen Lixing. Now was the perfect opportunity.
Nothing will happen between the drugged Heroine and a passers-by, but with the Male Lead there will definitely be sparks of love.
It’s a bit depressing to think about.
The System felt Le Tian’s inner depression and comforted, “Long term pain is better than short term pain. Sooner or later Yu Miao will be with Shen Lixing.”
Le Tian : “You shut up, I will not allow you to say Shen Lixing is short.”
System: …What a good nephew.
It was already early in the morning when Le Tian returned to the Shen family mansion with Yu Miao. When the Shen family’s maid saw him bring a woman back, she was surprised, “Young master, you’re about to get engaged.”
“Let me introduce you to my fiancée.” Le Tian pointed to the unconscious Yu Miao in his arms.
The maid instantly changed her expression, “Miss Yu is so beautiful in person, even more beautiful than on TV.”
Le Tian was speechless and asked again, “Is Little Uncle asleep?”
The maid replied, “Young master, what time is it? Naturally, Master didn’t sleep.”
Le Tian: “…” Someone. Please remove this Filipino maid who can’t speak Chinese well, out of my house.
Speaking of Cao Cao*, Shen Lixing really did not sleep. He was leaning on the stairs, as if to welcome Le Tian home. He was dressed in a neat three-piece suit, like he was going out. He was so handsome, the whole Shen family mansion was glowing.
(*T/N: Describes that the other person appears unexpectedly in front of the speaker, which often surprises people. The allusion comes from “The Romance of the Three Kingdoms”.)
Le Tian said sourly: “Little Uncle, where are you going in the middle of the night?”
“I had something to deal with, but now there is no need.” Shen Lixing unbuttoned his suit again and pointed his chin at Yu Miao in Le Tian’s arms, “What’s going on?”
“My fiancée got drunk.” Le Tian shrugged, not looking too concerned.
Shen Lixing looked at Le Tian quietly. His thick eyelashes covered his deep and unpredictable gaze, then dropping his head and lightly saying, “It’s not good to bring them into the home before you get married.”
Le Tian almost vomited a mouthful of old blood. Do you really need me to get a legal certificate in order for you to put a green cap on me?
“Anyway, it’ s only a matter of time,” Le Tian said nonchalantly, “I’ll take Miao Miao upstairs to sleep.” Le Tian deliberately bit the word sleep, and was immediately warned by the System: “You must not touch the Heroine.”
Le Tian: “Agitating the will, Agitating the will! Do you understand the Radical Will Law*?”
(*T/N: jījiàngfǎ : Radical Will Law: To use irritating or negative words to inspire people to do what you didn’t want to do or dared to do)
The System observed Shen Lixing’s facial micro-expressions. Indeed, it found that Shen Lixing’s eyebrows were slightly raised upwards, and the corners of his mouth were slightly pressed downward in a slight arc. It was an expression of anger, and the System was satisfied: “Increase the intensity.”
Rarely did the System stand on the same footing as himself and the hand Le Tian had warped around Yu Miao tightened. Just when he wanted to start taunting it, he heard Shen Lixing laugh. His laughter was very short, and it sounded more like a cold snort. There was still a faint smile on his chiseled face, and he shook his head meaningfully, “Young people.”
Attacked by the age remark, Le Tian thought to himself, ‘This year, this one will be a full two thousand and five hundred years old. And what about you? Little Brother.’
Shen Lixing, apparently unaware that he was a younger brother in Le Tian’s eyes, assertively commanded the servants, “Help Miss Yu to the guest room to rest.”
When the maid reached out, Le Tian just struggled symbolically. For one thing, he was, after all, the sweet little nephew. Shen Lixing appeared to be good to him, but in fact, Shen Lixing was a controlling pervert and disobeying him was definitely not a good choice.
Secondly, the strength of the Filipino maid was ridiculously strong. With just a little pull of hers, Le Tian already felt like his bones were about to break.
“Hiss…” Le Tian grimaced and touched his wrist with a heartbroken expression.
Shen Lixing beckoned him, “Come here.”
Le Tian reluctantly walked to Shen Lixing.
Standing on the steps, Shen Lixing, who was half a body taller than Le Tian’s body, reached out his hand just to pat Le Tian’s fluffy dog’s head. He patted the top of Le Tian’s head gently, grabbed Le Tian’s hand and rubbed it for him, then said in a low voice: “Trying to be stubborn with Little Uncle again?”
This was a warning, it must be a warning. When Shen Letian left home back then, he and Shen Lixing fell apart. Le Tian spent the energy of nine cows and two tigers to regain Shen Lixing’s favor. In order to be a young master in this world, Le Tian did a lot of shameful things in order to brush Shen Lixing’s goodwill, but also in the process figured out Shen Lixing’s personality.
It can be summed up in eight words – suit thug, Clothed beast*.
(*T/N: 8 words : 西装暴徒，衣冠禽兽 : Suit Thug can be better described with the character of Matthew McConaughey in the movie Gentlemen, typical gentleman with a violent heart.
Clothed beast: Often used to describe people with corrupted moral character)
No matter how gentle or kind he looks towards you, he wouldn’t relax his vigilance. This person has a very high bottom line. Behaviors like “stubbornness” challenge his authority, and Le Tian would never do it.
So Le Tian immediately conceded and said in a muffled voice, “I didn’t.”
“Behave.” Shen Lixing rubbed Le Tian’s wrist and smiled, “Haven’t you always wanted a yacht, Little Uncle will give you one.”
! ! !
Long live Shen Lixing!
The ultimate hedonist, Le Tian, immediately threw all the unhappiness in his heart to the clouds, and almost jumped up and down with joy. If Shen Lixing could always treat him so well, he honestly did not mind if Shen Lixing wanted to give him a green hat. As long as Shen Lixing can recognize him as a big nephew from start to finish, it is completely O several K*.
(*T/N: o几把k : Raws have it exactly like this)
“Little Uncle, I love you so much!” Le Tian couldn’t help but hugged Shen Lixing.
Shen Lixing hugged him very cooperatively, held him up like a child, and smiled: “When you were a child, I could pick you up with one hand; but now that you’re older, I can’t anymore.”
Bullshit… ‘When Shen Letian was a child, you obviously didn’t even take one look at him’, Le Tian slandered inwardly, but looked up and smiled with a face full of peach blossoms, “I will always be a child around Little Uncle.”
The System almost vomited. Listening to the 2,500 year old demon being so shameless really can disgust people.
However, Shen Lixing seems to be very pleased with Le Tian’s spoiled and foolish attitude. Shen Lixing slowly lowered his head and brushed his forehead against Le Tian’s when he was unsuspecting, and the skin contact made Le Tian freeze.
He raised his eyes and collided with Shen Lixing’s deep gaze. Shen Lixing solemnly said, “Le Tian, in this world, Little Uncle cares the most about you; because only you and I are connected by blood.”
I’m sorry… no… excuse me…
Le Tian was very guilty, so he didn’t dare to move and could only smile cooperatively.
Yu Miao woke up the next day at the Shen residence, and her whole body was confused.
In fact, ever since she met Shen Letian, she has not spent a single day of her life in wakefulness, everything seemed to be a dream.
“Knock knock.” There was a knock on the door, and Yu Miao hurriedly said, “Come in.”
It was the maid who knocked on the door and said stiffly, “Miss Yu, you can go now.”
Yu Miao felt as if she was a prisoner being released from the police station, and immediately got up. Not caring about her messy appearance, she quickly followed the maid out without saying a word. She didn’t even ask why she was here, nor did she question Shen Letian; she quickly got into the car arranged by the maid and “escaped” from the Shen residence.
When Le Tian woke up, he learned from the System that the Heroine had left, and that she had not even met Shen Lixing; he did not know whether to be happy or sad.
He could only sigh quietly, “Money relations really can’t be relied on, ah.”
Yes, Yu Miao was his fiancée that he “bought” with money.
As soon as the System caught him, the electric shock made him very nervous, so he could only hire Yu Miao quickly with his money, and first established the identity as Yu Miao’s boyfriend.
It was also thanks to Yu Miao having a standard family configuration that dragged her down as the ‘Heroine’.
Father was a gambler with large amounts of gambling debts. Mother was seriously ill in the hospital and stayed in the hospital.
Slogan: I need money.*

Contract couple, what a romantic plot.
Unfortunately, Shen Letian was not the Main Character. He was destined to lose money and grieve.
But it was also fortunate that Le Tian was not Shen Letian. He had no psychological burden. The money spent was the Shen family’s money, and the only loss was Shen Letian’s face.
Shen Letian being cheated on, what does it matter to him?
But now, the most unexpected thing was that the attraction between Shen Lixing and the Female Lead, Yu Miao, was lower than he thought.
It’s too low!
Back then, when he desperately worked hard to reach the position of the Second Male Lead, he couldn’t wait to dig out his heart for the Female Lead. But he still couldn’t compare to the Male Lead’s smile. He was completely desperate.
The attraction between the Male and Female Protagonists was the most important law that these Romance Worlds operated on. No matter how different the identity, how different the personalities were, as long as he was the Hero and she was the Heroine, they could always get together mysteriously in the end. The rest of the world would fade into the background.
They are like the shining sun and moon, and a character like Le Tian was not even a meteor.
Le Tian couldn’t help but doubt, could Shen Lixing turn his next door neighbor, Shen, green?
To this question, the System gave an answer: “Wanted Criminal Number 0, do you have some misunderstanding about the word ‘punishment’? If it was so easy to complete the task, would it still need to be considered punishment? There is no so-called ‘Hero’ and ‘Heroine’ attraction here. Everything depends on you, the Great Alliance Destroyer.”
To be very honest, I got emo at some points of the story but then our shameless MC just had to spoil the mood.
I feel the system on a spiritual level.
