what? While time travel its too out there, but it never crossed her mind that Zhao may be cray cray?
They always say they like them spirited and then get all mad when she does not follow his orders/acts like he wants.
I think I may be too old and bitter for reading this, I keep thinking of her as a stupid naive child that will be swallowed and spitted out by the world, where she not the mc in a romance novel
Also being beautiful its really a disadvantage if she is going to be live independently in those times. She is so innocent sometimes.
LOL, she makes her family call her Katie
yeah for the time period and social class thats a top tier good brother
And she choose to go for the argument most likely to get her labeled as a naive foolish child, nice...
Quickly, start talking about all the horrid fates you may have with an abusive/gambling/womanizing/tyrannical husband! that will have full control over you, your things and whatever children you may have.
And yet she havent proactive at all, she did not even try to gauge her brother thoughts to the idea of her not marrying. She is such a ostrich, cant say I do not relate, but still.
Like so many dizzy protagonist do.
Nice that she acknowledges it, even better if she learns from her mistake to better stay out of trouble or choosing to start standing out of her own volution and not a infuriating mix of stupid mistakes and bad luck.
eh, likely this stay was a matchmaking one and everyone but her and her lis sis knew about it.
If she is now being socially aware about her current setting, shouldt she also realize that she should not be ALONE with a man she is not related to, less she wants to be "ruined" or married off, I thought this was regency based?
Its so handwavy that she just can do the assortment of skills a lady should know. Not even a mention about her surprise about just being ABLE to do things she did not know before or mentions of her painstakingly learning.
LOL, he was asking for it
yeah a smirk its never attractive.
Plus the whole thing about their whole livehood depending on who they marry, they have to be that way, bar a few lucky ones with actual independent wealth/power.
Can you read their thoughts? They are products of a society that forced into that mould or the they are faking to be that way since its the expected thing and they have not your privileges. urghhh really gets in my nerves when the narrative its all about how super special unique and not like the others girls the main characters is, really hope this its just the mc being judgmental and self centered and not the usual narrative of all women except the mc and whoever she "changes" suck
And isnt their house furniture made with super durable aka expensive materials?
Dreams do come true!
