Chapter 9: In This Life, We Both Are Doing Swell, Part Two—translated by Michimochi (proofread by EvlNabiki & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)
I couldn’t return the body. Even if I could, I couldn’t bear to leave Dàgē and Xiǎomèi. So I could only make up for it in a different way. I could marry her, protecting the Ice Emperor’s little brother, and naturally take Mom in as my mother-in-law. Then I could call her “Mom.” This was the best solution I could come up with.
Guan Weijun was stunned. Junjun as well. Both of their eyes were wide open, as if they had suddenly seen me go crazy. Well, I admit that this sudden marriage proposal was a bit crazy. But hey, yesterday, Guan Weijun had only taken one look and had wanted to marry Dàgē. I, at least, had been looking at her for several days already. There isn’t a need for this level of surprise, right?
Guan Weijun rolled her eyes exaggeratedly and huffed, “I’m not interested in little boys. Scram, let your big brother come!”
I was in an awkward position. Dàgē did say he could marry her, but that was absolutely not okay. This was my own problem. I couldn’t just let Dàgē sacrifice himself and marry a woman he didn’t even like!
As for Dàgē ever becoming fond of Guan Weijun, chances were… and this was not me putting myself down or anything, but in my last life, I really wasn’t some great beauty. This Guan Weijun in front of me was even worse at prettying herself up than me, and would barely pass for an athletic cutie. Compared to that deceased, gorgeous assassin who had knocked on our door, they were fundamentally two different species.
