    As the Villainess Daughter-in-Law

    by 云东曼

    On the day my husband-to-be was escorted to the execution ground, I entered his household… Yun Lian was destined for wealth but never its fortune. In her previous life, she had arduously climbed up to become an HR director with an annual salary just crossing seven figures. In the blink of an eye, she found herself transmigrated. In this new world, she embodied a character affluent and beautiful, betrothed to a highly learned man from an illustrious background. However, the timing couldn’t have been worse. Her prospective in-laws were all villains who had recently been thrown into prison. Her fiancé took upon himself all the blame, ensuring the release of his entire family. The original owner sought to dissociate herself from this sinking ship by hitching onto the coattails of the newly enthroned emperor. Not only did she kick him while he was down, but she also personally went to the jail to humiliate her fiancé severely. On the very day her fiancé was being led to the execution grounds for beheading, she packed her dowry and, clutching a rooster, defied her entire family’s opposition to enter her fiancé’s now-tumultuous home. The benevolent new emperor decreed that one person’s crime should be borne by that person alone, sparing the rest of the family from punishment but stripping them of their titles and official posts, reducing them to commoners. Her future father-in-law could not withstand the shock and fell gravely ill. The matriarch of the family struggled to keep everything together, barely hanging on. The mother-in-law knew nothing except weeping. Below them were two young twin brothers and a half-sister. Yun Lian led this extended family away from the political strife of the capital to settle down in their ancestral countryside. She saw to it that even the mischievous younger siblings started learning practical skills from an early age. The seemingly naive mother-in-law would soon toughen up under the sun’s rays. The aging matriarch, despite her frailty, proved surprisingly spry when tending to livestock or gathering pigweed. And as for the heartbroken father-in-law, Yun Lian ensured everyone was taken care of meticulously. With her legs propped up, basking in the sun and perusing account books, she found life quite agreeable indeed. In this ancient era, she neither married nor engaged in harem intrigue; instead, she had a bunch of little rascals to manage, which wasn’t so bad. Just as she settled into this idyllic rhythm, her fiancé – whom she believed had long been executed – suddenly appeared with a group of bodyguards. The guards knelt and declared loudly, “We respectfully invite the Queen Empress to enter the palace!” Her handsome fiancé gazed at her with profound affection capable of drowning a person, calling out, “Lian’er~” Yun Lian: ??? (She is perplexed and surprised by the sudden turn of events.)
