Introduction
It's not easy being the wife of a superhero. Her husband's main specialty is fighting aliens, but his occupation means that she's often home alone and frequently keeps gets kidnapped. Fed up with the situation, she decided that enough is enough and she's going to get a divorce! However, to achieve her goal, she'll have to form an alliance with an alien, but the path to divorce doesn't seem like it's going to be quite that easy…

Hsing-chen is an ordinary office worker who is married to a superhero that fights extraterrestrial creatures. The two of them are newlyweds but somehow, she's already been kidnapped by aliens several times, plus her husband is hardly ever home because he's too busy saving the planet. Feeling unloved by her husband, she decides to take the plunge and get a divorce.

During one the of the kidnappings, Hsing-chen discovers that she is the key to her husband's superpowers, and if she successfully divorces him the aliens will be able to diminish his powers, so she and the alien end up joining forces to achieve their shared goal. She brings the alien, who is disguised as her illegitimate daughter, to negotiate with her husband. Against all odds, he completely changes his behavior and devotes himself to family life. Hsing-chen is so touched by this that she doesn't want a divorce and reneges on her decision, which provokes a huge backlash from the alien and a far greater conflict begins to unfold. Will her husband be able to save her this time? And what will happen to their marriage?

Through the novelty of the setting and the upbeat, fast-paced plot, the author delicately presents the unease and suspicion in the characters' intimate relationship, as well as the different ways that people express their respective feelings. It prompts the reader to really contemplate the best solutions for keeping an intimate relationship alive.
