The golden laser beam shot through the meteor shower, accurately hitting the large silver warship, its light blue protective shield had long run out of energy and could only occasionally light up; it could no longer withstand the fierce enemy fire. The swarm of warships closed in on Yue Chu’s fleet, their roars blending together into the sound of death.

“Scatter!”

Yue Chu put all of his concentration on flying the light warship, its silver wings flapped like butterfly wings as it dexterously maneuvered through the enemy fire. The blue electronic screen lit up his face as it continuously issued red beeping alarms. The dashboard continued to emotionlessly record everything. The red lights symbolized his constantly fallen comrades who had sacrificed themselves. 

“Yue Chu, retreat.”

A familiar voice transmitted from the communicator, it was still as low and gentle as before, but under the calm was a hint of despair. 

Yue Chu’s eyes felt sore and his tears almost fell. Too many people had died, he had thought that he had already grown numb to the pain, but in his final moments, he could no longer hold back his unending amounts of sorrow and grief.

The Lunar Empire had been defeated. They had already known that this would be the outcome three months ago, but as soldiers of the Lunar Empire, they couldn’t retreat because the moment they retreated they would be utterly overwhelmed by the Queen Bee Empire

“General, I’m a soldier. I can only face death, not retreat from it.” 

The general lightly chuckled, his magnetic voice traveling through the communicator and into Yue Chu’s eardrums, making him want to cover his tingling ears. 

“Then follow me and fight until the very end.”

“Yes, General!”

In the end, the silver warship could no longer stay up in the air as the enemy fire knocked off a third of the ship. The ship broke into two parts, letting out golden sparks as it exploded, scattering into debris. The Queen Bee Empire’s fleets swept in like a black cloud as they swallowed up the remaining light silver dots. 

Yue Chu didn’t feel any pain, death had come quickly, he felt as if he was weightlessly floating on a light cloud. He slowly closed his eyes and relaxed into the darkness, it was calm and peaceful.

However, at that very moment, Yue Chu suddenly felt a bright light shine before his eyes, it was so bright that he couldn’t help lifting up an arm to block the light. What was going on? How could a dead person still see light?

[Ding, the system has detected a suitable host, asking permission to bind.]

What the hell?

Yue Chu struggled to open his watering eyes. A little flying bear with wings came into his vision, it had a crescent moon on its forehead. It reminded him of cartoon fairies from his childhood. 

He murmured to himself, “I thought I died? Is that a grim reaper? But it’s a bit too cute to be one.”

The little bear waved the magic wand in its hand and countless sparkles sprinkled down on Yue Chu.

[Hello, I’m the ‘Green Tea[1]people who look harmless and pure on the outside, but are very calculating System’, if you agree to be my host you can live a new life. My tasks are very simple, all you need to do is ensure world peace by stopping the protagonists from abusing each other.]

Yue Chu thought over it for while, did he want to continue living? All of his comrades in arms had already died and his homeland had been destroyed. What was the point of staying alive?

He smiled as he shook his head, he felt a sort of relief. Experiencing death had made many things become clear to him.

“I’m okay, you should find someone else.”

The little bear grew anxious, it had finally found a host that fit all its requirements, it couldn’t let him get away.

[Do you have any wishes? Our ‘Green Tea System’ provides better service than the ‘White Lotus System’, not only do we give you a new life, we can also go back in time, change your ending, get revenge and slap faces, and so on. We can accommodate all of your wishes.]

Yue Chu looked at the little bear’s twitching ears and couldn’t hold back from squeezing them, they were as soft as he had imagined them. A wish?

The little bear continued to tempt him, [The Lunar Empire was destroyed by the Queen Bee Empire, right? Do you want to know why? It’s because Wei Chu is the protagonist of your world, there’s no way any confrontation would him would bear fruit. If you agree to cooperate with me, I can take away Wei Chu’s protagonist aura so that you don’t lose.]

Yue Chu smiled and lightly flicked the nose of the little bear, what a naughty little devil,[2]an endearment, the little bear isn’t an actual devil he wasn’t a fool. 

If the system was truly as powerful as it said it was, why not directly deal with the protagonists of each world to maintain world peace? Obviously, it was because it didn’t have enough energy to do it and had to find people to help it. He didn’t know what level of strength the system had classified his world with, but he had met Wei Chu before and he was definitely the strongest among the strong. How could a single system make the tables turn?

Besides…

Yue Chu sighed inwardly, the war had been started by the Lunar Empire. They had been the offensive party, killing countless Queen Bee people and destroying their homes. Their ending had resulted from the counterattack from a stronger opponent, you reap what you sow.

“Forget it, if you lose, you lose.”

The little bear froze for a second, not only was it not disappointed, its eyes had actually turned into stars. The stars glowed as they spun around.

[Ding! The host has passed the evaluation and may now bind with the system. Congratulations~ Fine, I’ll be honest, I’m no match again Wei Chu’s protagonist halo, but I can let you go back to the beginning of the war and start over again.]

Yue Chu was taken aback, this sort of temptation was bound to make a person’s heart beat faster, start over again, he could start over again…

“What do I have to do to get this opportunity?”

There was no such thing as a free lunch in this world. The little bear had given a very extravagant proposal meaning that the price would be just as valuable.

The little bear threw out a bunch of small flowers, their crimson pale petals slowly disappearing in the air, looking very dreamy.

[As I said earlier, it’s really simple. You just need to make sure that the worlds don’t get destroyed. Every world has people who are blessed by the heavens, but not all these people have HE.[3]happy endings Some of the people who have BE[4]bad endings will wreak havoc in their worlds, not caring about other people’s lives and causing mass destruction. In order to maintain world peace, you have to prevent the protagonists from abusing each other and wreaking havoc due to their sadomasochism. Of course, as your ‘Green Tea System’, I’ll be there to give you guidance. According to our research, green tea personas are really popular among human beings. I’ll teach you the art of green tea, you can use it to confuse people’s minds and destroy their relationships, hehehe…]

The little bear laughed so much that it exposed both of its front teeth, looking very perverted. 

Yue Chu pondered for a while, it seemed as if the system’s purpose was to ‘destroy relationships’, but had it misunderstood the definition of ‘popular’???

But that had nothing to with him, all he needed was a chance to start over again. Was that sort of miracle really possible? Would his comrades in arms, his compatriots, and his homeland return to the time before the war?

To be honest, Yue Chu didn’t fully believe the so-called system. But humans were always like that, as long as they had a glimmer of hope they would never let go.

“Okay, I promise.”

The little bear happily circled around Yue Chu and scattered brilliant stars around his body with its wand. The light grew brighter and Yue Chu was sucked in.

When Yue Chu opened his eyes again, he found himself in the restroom stall. What a truly fragrant place. The system had transported him so accurately that he couldn’t help but wonder if it had done it on purpose as revenge for rejecting it twice. He tried to open the door but found that it had been locked on the other side, it couldn’t be opened.

Yue Chu raised his eyebrows, someone had given him such an amazing present upon his arrival, it seemed as if his new role wasn’t that great. 

“System, can you introduce me to my role?”

The little bear appeared immediately, it twirled around gracefully, and with a wave of its wand, brought up a record of Yue Chu’s life in this world.

Yue Chu, male omega, 19 years old, handsome in appearance, and born into a prominent background. Due to being overprotected by his family, he had a cowardly personality and would cry every time he was bullied. Forget resisting, he was too scared to even report his bullies. This made his bullies become even more daring. This time, they had deliberately brought him out to tell him ghost stories before tricking him into the restroom and locking him inside.

Yue Chu had been terrified. The restroom was a popular setting for ghost stories, it was in a remote location that people rarely visited. The longer he thought about it, the more terrified he became. He could only cry and beg for them to let him out, but he only made them even more excited and they continued to tell him more ghost stories through the door.

In the dark of the night, Yue Chu had been curled up in the narrow bathroom all alone, he couldn’t see anything in the darkness, not even his fingers. The ghost stories constantly echoed in his mind. He was scared of opening his eyes and seeing a ghost in a corner of the restroom. He was scared of closing his eyes and feeling a ghost slowly crawl onto his body. In the still atmosphere, the only thing he could hear were his rapid beating and fierce heartbeat. The shocked and frightened Yue Chu failed to survive that terrifying night, he had a sudden heart attack and died.

Yue Chu put a hand on his chest and felt the regular beating of a heart. He breathed out a sigh of relief, he didn’t want to become a walking dead with no heartbeat.

“System, are you sure you guys didn’t kill him on purpose so that I could transmigrate over?”

The little bear’s face had an innocent expression on it, how could it possibly do anything like that.

[Of course not, the most we’d do is borrow a fresh corpse to use.]

Fine, Yue Chu believed it, for now.

The sky was already getting brighter, and every inch of the restroom was bathed in light. There was no darkness, no terror, and no ghosts, yet this little small, mean prank had taken a life away. How ironic. 

A trace of malice flashed across Yue Chu’s face as he slammed the blocked stall door open. Yawning due to lacking a night’s worth of sleep, he walked to the dusty mirror and examined himself. It was still the same handsome face with red lips and rosy cheeks[5]I’m a swiftie get over it, it was a direct copy of his original appearance, giving him a strong sense of substitution.

Looking at his dark blue school uniform, Yue Chu remembered that he was still a college student. He turned on the faucet and washed his face, the ice-cold water woke him up and he gave a smile to the mirror.

Well then, it was time to go to school to see how well those ‘good friends’ of his had slept last night. 


The translator has something to say:

The story isn’t as lighthearted as the summary makes it out to be.

The first arc is an Omega x Omega ABO, the characters are very fleshed out, the relationship develops slowly, and it touches on issues such as sexism and toxic relationships.

I really loved the first arc and I hope you will too!

The translator has another little something to say:

Nice to meet you all! I’m pleasepickthisup! You can call me ✨ pretty ✨

Contrary to my name, please do not pick this up 😀
