    what? While time travel its too out there, but it never crossed her mind that Zhao may be cray cray?

    For three years, Yan Xiaoran analyzed what Zhao Shuxin meant by her statement but even after spending three years in prison, she was still unable to get her answer.

    They always say they like them spirited and then get all mad when she does not follow his orders/acts like he wants.

    Maybe it was because of how alive she looked as she played in the water. He had never seen anyone so spirited or free. Freedom wasn't a part of his world.

    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

    Not like it mattered anyway. I would be out of the realm of the crazies soon enough.

    Also being beautiful its really a disadvantage if she is going to be live independently in those times. She is so innocent sometimes.

    Catherine du Pont was gorgeous. What if I had really pushy suitors that tried to snap me up before I could get a job at the bakery? Would anywhere else accept a girl without references that obviously looks like a noble?

    LOL, she makes her family call her Katie

    Then I'd run. Dye my hair. Go by my real name. No one would connect Katie Pullman to Lady Catherine du Pont.

    "I swear I will protect you from that fate. There are plenty of nobles out there under thirty with solid reputations that can look after you for the rest of your life. They may even have better libraries than Father's so you can read to your heart's content. I can ask any suitor you have about that."

    And she choose to go for the argument most likely to get her labeled as a naive foolish child, nice...

    "I wish to marry for love," I found myself admitting.

    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.

    "Catherine, if you spend your life with us everyone will look down on you as a spinster. You would always be shunned by your neighbors and anyone you meet. Do you honestly want that?" he asked with a hint of incredulity in his usually flat tone. "Are you that afraid of a bad match?"

    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.

    I just wanted to stay here playing with Adele, riding my horse, and hiding in the library forever. Although…there might be more impressive libraries in the capital. But would the strict countess ever let me near one?

    Like so many dizzy protagonist do.

    I'd done a lot of dumb stuff in my life but this took the cake. Was my pride really more important than my anonymity in this crazy place?

    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.

    I gaped up at him in shock. This guy was surprisingly persistent in talking to a girl for someone who was nothing but a military counselor in the novel.

    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?

    The duke raised an eyebrow at me and I realized my mistake. This wasn't home! And I had just snubbed the highest level of nobility below the royal family!

    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.

    Without being able to ride, I was incredibly bored. Adele had etiquette lessons. Percival and Edmund spent their time going about the estate with the earl and the duke. And I found the perfect time to sneak off to the library instead of practicing embroidery because I had a finished one ready to whip out as evidence if needed that I'd made on a rainy day weeks ago without anyone's knowledge.

    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.

    I wanted to get mad at him for being sexist but I'd met the girls here. He had a point. There was hardly an original thought among them.

    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?

    Lotus Sun had been to Wang Ling's home. She knew that it was located in a mixed rural and urban zone right on the fringes of Star city. She had never thought, however, that his family was truly that poor, until he had shown them his small wooden sword. Adding to that the way he had heroically drained the fruit and vegetable juice in one gulp…
