Chapter 1   Transmigration

“Knock, knock ...”

Curses followed a series of rapid knocks on the door.” Jinx, where’s the food? What time is it already? Why aren’t you getting up to cook? You’ll suffer if the old Madam is hungry.”

After Zhou Ying was woken up, she sat up and wanted to retort back. But when she saw the pile of firewood in front of her and the frozen fat little hand in front of her, she was stunned. She then panicked and directly swallowed the words that were on the tip of her tongue.

She clearly remembered getting into a car accident while driving with her husband to Food City. It was a city built under her name, and they went there to attend the anniversary celebration.

But where was this place... And who was the person shouting outside ...?

At this time, her body couldn’t help but shiver, and her stomach also felt a burst of pain. That feeling of extreme cold and extreme hunger tormented her until she felt dizzy and felt like she had almost lost her life again.


In a daze, memories flashed through her mind like a movie, and she realized she had transmigrated into another world.

She transmigrated into the body of a new bride, Zhou Ying, who had the same name as her. She was married to bring luck to the groom’s family, a custom to bless someone deathly sick with good luck in hopes they would recover from their illness.

The target to bring blessings from her marriage was the Imperial merchant Gu family’s sick matriarch, who was also her current husband’s mother. She was the respected Noble Princess, Ping Yang.

The tragic thing was that the princess passed away on the night her original self married.

The next day, after the princess’s death, the Gu family was sent to prison for smuggling salt. Ultimately, all their assets were confiscated, and they were sent back to their original hometown.

In the end, the Gu family pushed all the blame onto her host. They blamed her, saying she was a jinx and a disaster magnet. Since then, she became the most despicable person in their household, who was required to wake up earlier than chickens, sleep later than dogs, and eat less than cats.


Although her husband, Gu Chengrui, had the same name as her original husband, their personalities were the exact opposite.

He clearly knew that his family was taking their anger out on her, but he had never protected her. He had always been cold to her and always ignored her.

He would always order her around if he weren’t condemning her, and he didn’t have any self-awareness of being her husband.

However, as a concubine’s son whose mother had died, his situation was not much better than the original her. Two days ago, he had suffered from a cold and didn’t even get a single copper coin for his treatment.

Thinking of this, she couldn’t help but think of her husband, a military doctor, Gu Chengrui.

He was not good at sweet-talking, but he would cook for her. He would study hard to learn all kinds of skills and protect her in times of danger.


“Jinx, get up and cook. Are you looking for a beating...” At that moment, the knocking on the door was getting louder and louder, as if the person was going to rush in at any moment.

“I hear you. I’ll be right there.” At this moment, a hoarse male voice rang out from her side. At the same time, it was accompanied by the sounds of coughing and wheezing. She could tell that there was inflammation in his lungs.

“Then hurry up. Why aren’t you getting up at this time? “You’re so lazy.” The person replied with dissatisfaction, then turned around and left.

At the same time, Zhou Ying turned her head and looked at the man sitting next to her in shock. He was her “husband” who had never helped the original her at all.

No, he was not a man. He looked more like a 17 or 18-year-old boy. He was tall and handsome and looked quite similar to her original husband.

However, the boy’s face was ashen, and he was as thin as a matchstick. He squinted his eyes and leaned against the firewood, looking like he was about to die at any moment.

Regardless, his upper body was standing straight up against the wall, as determined as a soldier who was determined to defend his position.

As she thought of this, she couldn’t help but tear up.

After sensing that she was looking at him, the boy immediately raised his eyes and looked at her. At first, he was alert, with a glint of sharpness in his eyes. But soon, his eyes were full of kindness.

This was because his original wife was a traditional newly-wedded woman who was named a jinx and rejected by others after failing to bless their family with her marriage.

After nearly a month of torment, she had become numb and self-abased, so it was impossible for her to look at him so daringly.

Especially when he saw the tears of excitement in her eyes, he was even more confident in his guess.
