Transmigrated as Male Lead’s Father in a Dog-Blood Novel Chapter 1.1

Successful Career, Happy Family (1)

Xie Li is currently feeling extremely uncomfortable. There are still 25 minutes before he finishes work, and his assistant has come to check on him five times already, his eyes roughly pleading: “Chairman, why aren’t you going home yet?”

The reason for his discomfort is also very fk-ed up. After all, eight hours ago, “she” was still a 26-year-old girl who was thinking about whether to drink bubble tea or coffee during work this afternoon. But when “she” woke up from her nap, she realized something was wrong.

Xie Li[1]The Chinese text uses “谢莉” for the female protagonist before transmigration – or rather, Xie Li[2]The Chinese text uses “谢利” for the male character after. Both names have the same pronunciation but different Chinese characters for “Li”., as “she” discovered upon waking up – found himself not at her small desk, but on a luxurious, extra-soft bed. As soon as “he” opened his eyes, a beautiful and charming woman in her late twenties came and gave him a fiery kiss on the cheek and said, “Are you awake, honey? Breakfast is already prepared in the kitchen. Are you going to the company today?”

Xie Li was dumbfounded as “he” replied, “Okay.”

After finishing breakfast with the beautiful lady, she helped him tie his tie and then sent him off.

After sitting in the car, Xie Li finally had time to sort out “his” current situation. At first, she thought she had not woken up yet and was dreaming, but soon realized that “he” was already awake and in a completely different situation.

He had gone from being Xie Li to Xie Li, from a twenty-six years old 996 bald programmer[3]“996” describes a demanding work schedule in certain Chinese tech companies where employees work from 9 am to 9 pm, six days a week. “Bald” refers to hair loss that some … Continue reading to a thirty-nine years old chairman of a listed company. Oh, and he also transmigrated over from the normal world into a novel world.

Yes, the world where Xie Li is in is a classic dog-blood[4]“Dog-blood” (狗血) is a melodramatic genre characterized by love triangles, betrayal and exaggerated plot twists. romance novel world. His identity is the father of the domineering CEO male lead in the novel.

Xie Li facepalmed and didn’t know what to do for a moment.

Although “he” had it all now – a successful career, a beautiful spouse, and children – Xie Li felt like cursing at “her” misfortune.

As soon as thought of his current son graduating from college, entering the family business for an internship and falling for the female lead who had also joined the company recently, and subsequently becoming a bad-tempered domineering CEO as in the novel, and causing his sister to become an evil supporting character, his mother to become an evil mother-in-law, and he himself to become a bad father-in-law as per the novel, Xie Li felt overwhelmed.

If she had known this was going to happen, “she” would not have stayed up all night reading this novel and commenting on it.

The door of the chairman’s office was knocked, and the assistant came for the sixth time and asked, “Are you leaving, sir? Madam just called and said she has prepared sweet and sour pork chops for you.”

Xie Li ran a hand over his face and said, “Let’s go home.”

After all, sooner or later, he has to face “his” family. He got into the car that his assistant had prepared feeling hopeless and resigned to his fate. Chairman Xie’s car was exceptionally expensive, as described in the novel, but she always skimmed over these filler paragraphs, so she didn’t know the nitty-gritty details, only knew it was very expensive.

As soon as the car started, before even leaving the underground parking lot of the Xie Group, it hit someone.

Xie Li looked at the woman leaning against his car and was a bit speechless for a moment. Is this a mistake, miss? The car had just started and had barely accelerated to 10km/h. The underground parking lot of the Xie Group is quite large, and the car was not parked haphazardly earlier either. How could she even hit a car when the driver was driving with the dipped headlights and had already braked?

His assistant also did not understand what had happened and got out of the car to check and help her up.

Despite sitting in the back seat, he could clearly see the woman in front of his car due to the light of the headlights. She was wearing a white low-cut dress, had wavy hair and a beautiful face. She didn’t look like a person with brain dysfunction, so why did she bump into his car?

The assistant dealt with everything quickly. After exchanging business cards, he suggested that she go to the hospital, and then got back in the car.

After the car started moving, Xie Li saw the woman standing by the side, her head bowed. He could see her helpless and pitiful expression. After leaving the parking lot, the assistant handed him the woman’s business card.

“Sir, she’s an artist from our entertainment company.”

Xie Li glanced at it and almost had a heart attack.

Bai Qian?Isn’t that the name of the celebrity that the male lead’s father sponsored in the novel? Later, she also developed a good relationship with him and the female lead and became the stepmother of the male lead by claiming it was true love between them, ousting the male lead’s mother.

This was also a point that Xie Li commented furiously on. Damn, how could the author portray a mistress’ ascend so innocently and romantically? And in the end, the author actually made her rise to power and replace his good wife. “She” even commented that such authors should die.

“She” also commented that men who cheat on their partners and their mistresses should all die.
