After a heavy story like 医妃权倾天下 (Yī Fēi Quán Qīng Tiān Xià)- Princess Medical Doctor, I needed to listen to a short story. I picked this one unfortunately it is a sad story. I cried from episode 1 till the end. I like all the songs arrangement in this audiobook.
FL (Chen Xi Ying) is a heiress. She was 21 years old when she married ML (Xiao Huan). ML married her purposely for a selfish purpose. After their marriage, ML took over the running of FL’s father business. FL’s father passed away one year later. That was when FL discovered the reason why her father had agreed to their marriage.
Three years later…
It was a lonely marriage for FL. ML told FL that he does not love her and he will not divorce her as well. FL has very low self-esteem because she has never been good in her study, has a common look and never work before. She has always depended on her father and then ML after her marriage. She never questioned her husband life outside their home. ML did not treat FL well and take her for granted. ML tends to use FL’s body to release his own anger whenever they have sex. ML despises himself for marrying FL for her family’s wealth and career opportunity. ML’s ex-girlfriend left him for someone rich many years old. That separation has hurt ML a lot and forced him to do whatever it takes to be successful.
FL has a good friend called Xiao Bei that has been loyal towards her throughout her life. When FL kept having dizzy spells, Xiao Bei started to questioned her. FL confessed that she has cancer just like her dad and will not live long. ML eventually found out that FL has cancer. He regretted his past action and started to make up to FL for the remaining of her life.
