The Correct Strategy to Approach the Yandere Supporting Male Lead - Chapter 1
Woman Fragrance – “I Will Wait For You To Make It Up.”
Squatting in the corner, rubbing hands, Li Ruo Shui was trying to warm herself in the dungeon.
It was March, and the wet and cold wind was coming in through the cracks in the wall.
However she only wore a thin goose-yellow garment, the cold wind immersed, the two tapestries in front of her waist were stained with a bit of dampness.
Li Ruo Shui looked at the other women in the dungeon and sighed faintly.
At least she was able to rub her hands and stomp her feet, the others were drugged and weak, and they could only rest against the wet and cold walls. Some of them were so cold that their faces turned white and their lips were blue.
“System, when exactly is that supporting male lead coming?”
[The host please wait patiently]
Li Ruo Shui squatted in the corner with her arms folded, looking desolate, like a homeless vagrant on the street.
“If I am wrong, the law will punish me, not let me suffer in this book.”
Li Ruo Shui was here entirely because of this system.
The system sent Li Ruo Shui to this case breaking romance book called <The Game of Cat and Mouse> with the purpose of approaching that gentle and infatuated supporting male lead, Lu Zhi Yao.
In order to establish the bond between Li Ruo Shui and Lu Zhi Yao, and increase the chances of success, the system made her into a cannon fodder who was ruthlessly abducted and sold in the first case.
The system also sent him an exclusive bounty order, and according to it, the supporting male lead is now on his way to save her.
It was just a mere saying, an hour ago the system said he was almost there, and now it is still telling her to wait patiently.
“No, it’s too cold, if he doesn’t come then I’ll have to find a way to get out myself.”
As soon as the words just fell, the door at the entrance of the dungeon was opened, the light that penetrated from the sky illuminated a small half of the dungeon, and a long shadow pulled in from the entrance.
It was a tall and strong woman.
Along with her were several men in black, holding shawls and cloaks, and speaking in flattering terms.
“Mama Yang, slow down, be careful of falling.”
She walked down the stairs slowly, with strong steps, every step gave the vibes of oppressiveness and strangeness.
The dungeon door shut again, the man in black lit the torch, and the warm orange light dispersed a little of the gloomy chills.
Her face was hard and sullen as she walked up to the cell door, skimming her gaze as if she were looking at livestock, looking them up and down, judging their looks presumptuously and estimating their prices.
Li Ruo Shui frowned slightly, and saw that Mama Yang looked over, with contemptuous eyes and impatient tone.
“You’re the one who tried to run away yesterday and hurted two people?”
Li Ruo Shui was stunned for a while, she only arrived today, could it be the original owner of the body?
“The temper is too stubborn, grind it before sending her out.”
“How, how to grind?” Li Ruo Shui screamed to the system in her heart, but there was no reply.
No way! No sound again!
Mama Yang took out a cloth bag, and inside it there were a row of cold glowing silver needles.
“This thing doesn’t leave any wound, it can be pierced into the fingertips, and even the most stubborn cow will not dare to be stubborn.”
Li Ruo Shui looked at the row of silver needles, her eyebrows twitched, and she almost screamed out.
Cow only has hooves, no fingertips!
“Wait, if I apologize, do you think I still have a chance?”
A truly wise person is one who can bend and stretch, who can advance and retreat.
Mama Yang sneered, then pulled out one of the needles and looked at her: “What do you think?”
Seeing Mama Yang’s face coming forward, Li Ruo Shui helplessly pressed against the wall, unable to retreat.
“There’s no need to come so close even if there’s no chance……”
Mama Yang took her hand and said slowly.
“Little girl, you are beautiful and look smart, why were you so impulsive yesterday?”
The silver needle reached her fingertip, and Mama Yang sighed.
“You should be more obedient when you serve others in the future. This set of needles will be given to the patron, and if you are naughty again, you will be like today.”
“Wait! Someone broke in!”
Li Ruo Shui quickly jerked her hand back, but she couldn’t pull it out. She could only stare at the entrance of the dungeon with her eyes.
The men in black picked their ears ignorantly, Mama Yang sighed and took out another silver needle, the warm light reflected from the silver needle reflected in her empty eyes.
“Playing tricks? Another one.”
Li Ruo Shui’s eyes widened, she tried to withdraw her hand, but her hand strength could not match with Mama Yang’s.
“No! I’m just kidding!”
She only wanted to survive, couldn’t she be given the chance!
At that moment, the wooden door at the top of the dungeon opened with a creak and the dark interior was lit up again.
A figure was pulled in, followed by a wooden blind cane into the wooden door, tapping the stairs.
Mama Yang and the others stood up immediately, frowning and looking at the door.
The person who walked in through the entrance was dressed in white, with waist-long hair and a long sword hanging on his waist, his face could not be seen, and he walked slowly down the stairs nearing the cell door, followed by the hunting sound of the fire torches.
His eyes were slightly closed and with a soft smile curved up, he was like the unmelted spring snow, luminous and clear, but without a trace of coldness.
“Someone deliberately sent me an exclusive bounty. I was really curious so I came to have a look.”
“So, who is Li Ruo Shui?”
[The task target Lu Zhi Yao has arrived, host is required to grasp the opportunity, the strategy begins.]
[Warm reminder, the name was written on the exclusive bounty, host please make your own discretion.]
Li Ruo Shui heard the reminder and silently closed her open mouth.
The original book said that before meeting the supporting male lead, she was the only person who knew Lu Zhi Yao’s name.
But she did not know him at all, so reasonably she would not know his name.
Did she have a grudge with the system in her previous life! Why does it keep pitting her!
There was no echo in the gloomy dungeon, and strangely enough, Mama Yang and others did not move either, but only stared firmly at him.
A young girl leaning against the wall propped up her body and broke the silence with a feeble voice.
Li Ruo Shui silently inclined her head to look at her.
Even if it wasn’t her, this girl still strived for this one opportunity to survive. So is this like, rather you than me dead?
Lu Zhi Yao raised his eyebrows slightly and tapped his bamboo cane towards the cell.
Mama Yang stared at him, but her footsteps kept going backward, one of the men in black raised a knife and marched forward, only to be knocked away to the cell door, spitting a large mouthful of blood.
Li Ruo Shui took a deep breath, her heart in doubt, isn’t he a gentleman? Isn’t this fighting style a little acting out of character?
Lu Zhi Yao turned his head to that direction, and smiled: “If I were you, I would have stayed still and silent.”
He walked to the place where the young girl spoke and squatted down, his snow-white robe spreading out on the ground, gleaming the firelight, like a white udumbara bloom (TL/N: sacred flower from heaven) tinted by the sunset.
“Are you Li Ruo Shui?”
His voice was as warm as a clear spring, which dissipated the girl’s nervousness.
“Then do you know my surname?”
The young girl was suddenly at a loss for words, she only knew the bounty order but neglected the exclusive word before it. She was annoyed at herself for being too impulsive, but out of gambler’s mentality, she said a surname.
Li Ruo Shui: ……
It seems logical to have guessed this surname, afterall the surname for someone so good-looking must be uncommon.
Lu Zhi Yao lowered his head and chuckled, stood up and faced the crowd.
“Interesting. Knowing my name, but still hiding yourself? I’m more curious now.”
He raised his eyebrows slightly and raised a smile as pure as fresh snow.
“ Why don’t we play a game. Find out who is Li Ruo Shui?”
If you ignored his smile, his aura and words were more like a villain than the other villains.
Mama Yang glanced at the dungeon entrance, and stiffly hooked up a smile.
“How does the Lord want to play?”
“I’m blind, I can’t see.” Lu Zhi Yao smiled, and a firelight flashed across his curved eyelashes, as if sprinkled by fragments of gold.
“How about this, whoever can prove that she is Li Ruo Shui, then I will bring her away.”
As soon as they heard this, the young girls who were like wilted cabbages a moment ago, stood up and started babbling. Some of them even recited the “Hundred Family Surnames” book. Everyone was trying to guess his surname.
There was nothing bad about guessing, there will be hope to live in case one got the right answer.
Li Ruo Shui was the only one who looked at him, with a heart overflowing with doubts.
Isn’t Lu Zhi Yao a gentle, infatuated and kind supporting male lead? How could he give her a dangerous feeling?
Her intuition has always been strong and because of this, she has avoided many calamities in the past. She never doubted her own feelings, so there must be something wrong with Lu Zhi Yao, but his character in the book was clearly infatuated and gentle……
A figure suddenly crouched down in front of her, with white clothes and black hair, eyes slightly closed, and “looking” at her with a smile.
Li Ruo Shui leaned back and pressed against the wall again, sighed at her miscalculation.
She was so absorbed in her thoughts just now that she forgot to shout with the others.
Lu Zhi Yao came close to her, the white jade beads wrapped around his wrists jingled several times, and the dangling tassel swept across the back of Li Ruo Shui’s hand, tickling it.
“What’s my surname?”
With curvy eyebrows and rising tail sound, the expectation in his tone was almost overflowing.
Li Ruo Shui loosened her shoulders. She had to get to know him anyway, so she might as well say it directly.
Lu Zhi Yao was silent for a moment, then suddenly laughed, his eyebrows gentle and delicate.
“I’m the only one who knows my own name in this world. How did you know? Tell me. I’ve been thinking about it for a very long time and yet I couldn’t figure it out.”
Li Ruo Shui moistened her dry lips. She didn’t know how to say it. As a matter of fact, she didn’t even figure it out herself yet.
However, her intuition told her that Lu Zhi Yao just wanted an interesting answer, an answer that was interesting and could arouse his curiosity again.
“It’s a very peculiar reason. Why don’t you rescue us first, and then I’ll talk to you properly.”
Lu Zhi Yao stood up and the Buddha beads around his wrist jingled.
“Well then you have to think faster, because I kill people quickly, and if the reason is not peculiar enough, you will end up worse than them.”
He turned to the crowd, pulled out his waist sword, and smiled.
“I’ll give her some time to make it up, so it’ll be slower. Who comes first?”
Mama Yang clenched her teeth and exchanged glances with the men in black around her, several of them attacked, striking every death point without any slightest mercy.
The glint and flash of swords swept across the dungeon and the fire flickered, but Lu Zhi Yao was not the least bit disadvantaged even when he was against many.
[Warning, disclosure of system and strategy is prohibited, violators will be forcibly eliminated.]
Upon hearing this, she really wanted to take the system out and beat it up, because the system was the cause of all this!
She already figured out that this journey was not a good thing at all, and according to the description in the original novel, she was only a cannon fodder.
A soft cry drew Li Ruo Shui’s attention back, she looked up and almost exclaimed “good heavens”.
The villains didn’t even last a few rounds before they fell to the ground and died instantly. The torches fell to the ground, illuminating the small red trickle on the ground.
Lu Zhi Yao turned to face her after letting a soft sigh. The firelight on the ground made his face look blurry.
“Sorry, I’m a little excited, so it’s faster.”
Li Ruo Shui swallowed her saliva.
This was too fast! Villains stand up, give her more time!
The other young girls who leaned against the wall were so frightened that they fell silent, afraid that making the slighted noise would attract his attention.
He raised his feet and walked over, stepping over the blood, splashing blood on the corners of his robe, and finally stopped in front of Li Ruo Shui.
Lu Zhi Yao curved his eyes and bent down. The sound of blood dripping from the sword in his hand, manifested particularly clear in this quiet dungeon.
“Have you made it up? Your peculiar reason.”
