The demons of this world run amok; it’s time for the children of heroes to fill in their own legends.

Unfortunately, you’re not the cold and incorruptible female lead(FL). You’re not even the high-status, delicate and charming second female lead: You’re just the detestable cannon fodder female number three!

The original character was secretly in love with the male lead(ML) while a fanatic in harming the FL from the dark. Till the very end, she was merely a stumbling block for the love between the ML and FL. She let herself get stepped all over by the second male lead and lived a life that could only described as ‘stupid’.

“So you’re saying… as long as I steal the FL’s man, I’ll have succeeded?”

“Apologies, your target partner is… the FL’s little brother.”

“Little brother?”

“Yes, it’s exactly that little brother who’s hopelessly in love with his older sister. The one with a twisted heart and evil tendencies, vicious and merciless… that little brother.”

    Honestly LOVE this novel! I almost never read novels until they are complete but this one intrigued me and I wanted to read just a few chapters to get the gist of it, and for a while I’ve been hooked. I am waiting now for the translations to be competed so I can binge read it, and you stopped translating for a few months and I started having minor chest pain, thinking it will be dropped. I tried to machine translate, only to realize I can’t read at all using MTL, so again I kept returning to see if this had been updated, and finally I see some updates! Thank you so much for not dropping this gem! I wish you the best of luck with this project and I will keep checking for updates every week or so and wait patiently for it to be completed so I can devour it in one go.

    This novel is amazing and the translation is great! Give it a try and you won’t regret, specially if you like tsundere Male Leads and cute, smart Female Lead with a bit of dramatic past and System in the mix.

    This novel is a superb one, it has dark side, monsters, romance, family values, and super natural all intertwined nicely. I hope they will make a great TV series on this. Great job to the author, the translators…. I binged read the novel in a week or so…. Love the characters, the plot, the characters’ growth and all the back stories of the side characters, it gave a truly long impression on me. And thanks for the side notes and explanation from the translators.
