The Male Lead’s Substitute Wife
The Male Lead’s Substitute Wife Chapter 2.2


Shen Xiuqi stared at the grinning Su Yaya for a while, who even let out a “hehe” sound, and thought: she’s foolishly smiling so happily, but what made her so happy?

Su Yaya firmly hugged her quilt on the bed while thinking about the ten million alimonies. Once she gets ahold of it, it would be as if money were raining down from the sky, enough to fill her small bed to the brim with money. She would be able to happily sleep and roll on her bed of money every day.

Hee hee hee…

The foolishly happy little rabbit failed to notice the human-shaped cheetah that had been staring at her for a long time by the door as she was completely immersed in her own beautiful fantasy.

Unaware of whether or not Shen Xiuqi was influenced by Su Yaya’s silly appearance, but the corner of his mouth soon curved into a smile and his mood suddenly became better. He walked over with large strides and reached out to rub Su Yaya’s disheveled hair. The man’s voice was deep, beautiful, mellow like a cello, “What are you thinking about that’s making you so happy? Let me hear about it, hmm?”

Ten million…

“Oh…” Su Yaya looked up and finally noticed Shen Xiuqi. She hurriedly covered her mouth with her hand and stared at him with her sparkling wide eyes, but deep down, Su Yaya secretly thanked herself for her timely reaction and didn’t blurt out her true inner thoughts.

How would Shen Xiuqi react if he finds out that she saw him as a walking ‘ten million’?

Ah, she doesn’t dare to think about it…

“Well?” Shen Xiuqi’s deep gaze swept across her face a few times and saw how her eyes sparkled with light as she stared at him with worship and admiration.

Of course, Su Yaya would like at him with eyes full of worship and admiration because to her, he was worth ten million! And every time she looked at his handsome face, she would be reminded of this. He was her automated ATM machine that would make her rich in the future and reach the peak of her life!

Being watched intently by Su Yaya’s bright and sparkling big eyes greatly satisfied Shen Xiuqi’s ego. Her cheeks were rosy and soft, and her skin was delicate and smooth, it seemed like water could be squeezed out of her cheeks with just a light pinch.

At this thought, Shen Xiuqi did just that. He reached out and gently pinched Su Yaya’s cheek. Her skin was satiny soft and glossy, not to mention very comfortable to the touch. After pinching her once, Shen Xiuqi wanted to pinch her again. 

“It hurts…” she weakly mumbled and looked at him pitifully with her bright eyes upon being pinched twice by Shen Xiuqi on the cheeks.

Her little rabbit-like gaze caused the man’s heart to inexplicably soften, and quickly let go of her cheeks and withdrew his hand. Shen Xiuqi coughed as he sternly said, “I need to go to the company in a little while, so obediently stay at home. If you get bored, go shopping.”

Su Yaya nodded and obediently replied, “Oh, okay.”

With a delicate, lovable, soft, and obedient appearance yet clever like a silk flower, she lightly clung around him, stirring his heart. He took out a wallet from his pocket and took up a card, Shen Xiuqi then hand her the card as he said, “Take it.”

Her eyes fell on the Platinum card in front of her and blinked her eyes in surprise. Su Yaya’s heart began to pound as she looked up at Shen Xiuqi with excitement and nervousness. She pointed a finger at her nose and said, “Is this card for me?”

How could her silly appearance look so cute?

His heart was about to melt.

The corners of Shen Xiuqi’s mouth curved upwards and handed her the card again, he whispered, “Use it to spend.”


She’s rich!

Su Yaya was so happy that she almost jumped up!

She was a poor person before she transmigrated into the novel in her sleep and suddenly became rich. Now, she even has a handsome and rich overbearing president husband giving her his card. He straightforwardly said, “Take it and spend as much as you want!”

Hahaha… she was happy to death! She was so happy that she was about to turn crazy!

Su Yaya took the card with both hands sincerely and with a brilliant smile on her beautiful face she said in a sweet and lovable tone, “Thank you husband, mwah~”  

Although the original owner of the body was married to Shen Xiuqi, she and Shen Xiuqi were just strangers.

Su Yaya truly admired her ability to adapt to any situation. She had obviously just transmigrated and had merely ten minutes of interaction with Shen Xiuqi. 

Of course, the deep physical interaction that occurred last night didn’t count since at that time, she had fainted and couldn’t experience it herself. Yet at this moment, the fact that she was able to calmly address Shen Xiuqi as her husband and kiss him, was quite impressive.

Who told Shen Xiuqi to be so handsome, rich, and generous? She loved him to death!

When faced with the immense temptation of money, she can abandon all morals and reservations; these things don’t exist for the poor. What’s the use of arrogance and an unyielding character for a poor person? Some of them had been persistently struggling just to barely survive!

For a person like her who was scared of being poor, being presented with a platinum card and told to use it as much as she, don’t even talk about calling Shen Xiuqi husband, she was even willing to call him Sugar Daddy.

However, her reaction made Shen Xiuqi have different thoughts about her character. He thought of her as someone different from those other women who were greedy for his money. She appeared very happy with just a card, it seemed like she was going to be very easy to raise!


It seemed like his choice to marry and sign that marriage contract with her was correct. Since she had helped him so much by helping him successfully inherit his grandfather’s inheritance, he would do his best to treat her right in the future. As long as her requests weren’t too demanding, he would satisfy all her requests.

“Be good, I’m going to the company now.” Shen Xiuqi smiled and rubbed her head again. Her hair was very soft and felt good to touch, making him unable to bear to part with her.

Since her sugar daddy had given her a platinum card, shouldn’t she serve him well? Even if she had to pretend, she should make sure her acting skills were on par. Otherwise, he would feel that her service wasn’t enough.

Therefore, Su Yaya’s face revealed the most perfect smile as she spoke with her sweet and soft voice, “Husband, you have to pay attention to your safety when you drive to work. Work hard and come back early, I will make you a delicious meal.”

Shen Xiuqi swept his deep gaze across her face to her slender and fair fingers. He had known her for a long time, but he had never seen her cook. Would the food she made be even edible?

“I’m going to be a little busy today, so I don’t know when I will be coming back. I will call you after I finish work.”

Before he was sure that the food she cook was edible, he didn’t want to make things difficult for his stomach. Seeing how happy she was and that she was taking the initiative, he didn’t want to hurt her feelings, so he subconsciously used the excuse that he was busy with work.

Sure enough, after hearing what he had said, the light in Su Yaya’s eyes dimmed a little.

“Okay then, be careful on the road.” She stared at him as she waved goodbye.

Seeing her appear reluctant to part with him, just like a small little kitten Shen Xiuqi’s heart was slightly stirred. If the company really didn’t have something waiting for him to deal with, he was willing to stay with her. She was his woman so it was acceptable for him to occasionally coax her, as long as she wasn’t being too unreasonable.

“I’m leaving.” Shen Xiuqi rubbed her head for one last time before he turned around and headed for the door.

Walking out of the room, when Shen Xiuqi turned around to close the door, he inadvertently glanced at Su Yaya and saw her sitting still on the bed while holding her quilt and her big, watery eyes were staring at him without blinking.

Shen Xiuqi lowered his head as he closes the door, and his mouth curved up into a faint smile.

Hearing the sound of Shen Xiuqi’s footsteps gradually drifting away, Su Yaya who was now alone in the room held up the platinum card that Shen Xiuqi had just given her and chuckled like a crazy little mouse as she keep rolling on the bed.

Oh, my, god! She would’ve never imagined that she would become a rich person after transmigrating into a novel when she falls asleep.

She felt extremely happy and refreshed.

Su Yaya couldn’t stop laughing as she rolled about on the mattress, and even kissed the platinum card multiple times. This woman appeared more enthusiastic than she did before when she was facing Shen Xiuqi. Su Yaya finally stopped laughing and rolling about when she heard the sound of the engine of the car starting from below.

According to the current plot, the novel had not yet entered the main storyline. Right now, the original owner of the body and Shen Xiuqi had only been married for five days, so they were still in the sweet and loving phase of their marriage.

Regardless of why Shen Xiuqi had pursued the original owner of the body, or the purpose he had in mind when he married the original host, Shen Xiuqi seemed to like her and was willing to coax and dote on her based on the current situation. 

Therefore, Su Yaya, who was a counterfeit that had transmigrated here, planned to win Shen Xiuqi’s favor by fawning over him. She would serve Shen Xiuqi and do her best to have a good relationship with him in order to leave behind a good impression of herself. She won’t oppose the female lead, so when they divorce in the future, he would remember her goodness and give her more alimony.

Thinking about this, a scene from the novel suddenly flashed in Su Yaya’s mind. She quickly reached out and grabbed the robe that was at the corner of the bed. After putting on the robe, she quickly walked to the French window and pulled aside the sea-blue curtains. Su Yaya looked down, just in time to see Shen Xiuqi’s car slowly driving out of the villa’s gate.

A bright idea suddenly dawned upon her. She quickly raised her hand and waved at the rearview mirror of the car. It didn’t matter if Shen Xiuqi saw it or not; it was good enough as long as she did it!

Truth was, early this morning when she was sending Shen Xiuqi to work, she suddenly remembered a novel she had read. In the story, the female lead had done this same thing, which firmly tugged at the male lead’s heartstrings, thus leaving the male lead with a favorable impression of her.

Therefore, she hoped that she would be able to curry Shen Xiuqi’s favor by doing this.

Hee hee hee… she applauded at how quick-witted she was.

Inside the car, chauffeur Zhong Shu saw Su Yaya standing by the window and waving goodbye at Shen Xiuqi from the rearview mirror. He didn’t know what was wrong with himself today since he usually wasn’t a talkative person, but he wanted to tell Shen Xiuqi about this. The chauffeur spoke up and said, “President Chen, young Lady Su is waving goodbye at you from upstairs.”

Shen Xiuqi was looking at the documents, but his fingers stopped flipping through the files when he heard Zhong Shu’s words. He didn’t even have to look to know that Su Yaya, this silly girl, was probably standing in front of the French window as she reluctantly looked at the departing car. He already had a smile on his face since he left the villa, but the smile deepened while he thought of her.
