Novel Summary

Yan Yan has become the cannon fodder in the novel.

Young Master Cannon Fodder was lost when he was a child, and when he was found he was covered with scent of red dust (1) , his lazy look provoked annoyance. So it didn’t take long for the cannon fodder to be sent to marriage by his family. The marriage partner is the protagonist of the book.

After the marriage, the cannon fodder not only failed to curb it , but became more able to do it. He pestered the protagonist all day acting coquettish, and finally the protagonist gave the cannon fodder a huge sum of money and drove the person out of the house.

After seeing the “end” of the cannon fodder, Yan Yan’s eyes lit up. Behave in a spoiled manner? He is best at it. It is guaranteed that the protagonist will not be able to bear it within three months, and he will be driven out with a huge sum of money.

Because of a favor owed by his father, Ji Juechuan, who has already achieved something at a young age, had to marry the young master of Yanjia who doesn’t love his mother or father.

On the first day of cohabitation before marriage, Ji Juechuan sat on the side of the bed and looked at his mobile phone. His face became even more ugly when he thought that he would be sleeping in a bed with the perfume-scented person. He will make it clear as soon as he arrives, and let the man pay attention to his behavior.

The bathroom door opened, and a soft and refreshing ball rolled into his arms. The young man with wet hair raised his face and smiled sweetly: “Husband, can I sleep with you tonight?”

Ji Juechuan looked at the person in his arms for a long time, and his Adam’s apple moved slightly.


Later, Yan Yan received a huge sum of money from Ji Juechuan. It was just that the ticket he had prepared was torn to pieces. The man’s hot hands pressed against his waist, his tone dangerous.

“Yanyan, our wedding hasn’t been held yet, where do you want to go?”
Yan Yan:? That’s not what it says in the book!

*Mr Ji at the beginning: #Who is his wife? Anyway, it’s not my wife#

Later: #Do you have a wife yourself? Why do you covet my wife all day? #

*sā jiāo in the title means to act like a spoiled child/ to act coquettishly

*(1) 红尘 (hóng chén) the world of mortals (Buddhism) / worldly affairs. It’s a part of a poem, the actual phrase is 看破红尘 ( kān pò hóng chén) to see through the world of mortals or to see through red dust/ disillusioned with human society to reject the world for a monastic life

  1. Hi! I tried to find a novel where the ML is a emperor (if not then he's a king) and MC tried to seduce him to save his older brother (his older brother is the OG ML). But eventually the ML need to marry 2 women (1 to be the queen, and another 1 to be the concubine) and I think those two are a couple too and then the queen were arrested because she tried to do something harmful to ML. And MC also married a wife that later he will help her to fakes her death so that she won't get punished (?). And, MC also save a young boy who turned to be a royalty from another country that later will become so obsessed with MC.

  2. Hello, I'm looking for a BL. I don't remember exactly, but there are some passages. Cannon fodder pursues Gong saying that she loves him and the two get married. Bai Yuegueng returns and lives in their house. There is a section at the beginning where the cannon fodder is inside a large gift box and is delivered to the gong's door, but is thrown into the garbage truck. When Bai Yuegueng lives with them, Cannon Fodder has a mirror made with Bai Yuegueng's name that reflects light into Bai Yuegueng's room to ward off evil. Cannon fodder never liked gong. when Bai Yuegueng is at the police station. cannon fodder says his luck is that I never liked him. Gong heard everything. For some reason, I don't remember, she pretended to be in love. It could be a system or because she has to follow the story to keep her body or be free. She makes several situations, when Bai Yuegueng lives with them, Gong sends the butler to make light food and cannon fodder does not have any favoritism inside the house. Gong never betrayed cannon fodder.
