Author of this book also wrote 不负荒颜 (Bu Fu Huang Yan). It was a sad ending for Bu Fu Huang Yan, hence I was hesitated to start listening to her book. Furthermore, the title of the book seems like a sad love story. I went to find out the ending of this story before I started the audiobook. The introductory episode is really interesting. Let me the quote my favourite part where the ML asked FL “Is there anything about me that you don’t like? I will change”.
FL (Du Ruo) is a French language teacher in an international School. She met a boy (Qiao Yi Mo) on her first day of work and the boy shown her a snapshot of a DNA report. FL did not want to tell to the boy the truth and said it was a typical medical report that everyone has.
He Jiao Jiao, QYM’s school mate, also from a single parent family. Both kids have no mother. QYM has been staying with her paternal granny since birth. When HJJ started to question the existence of QYM’s parent, QYM insisted to move in to stay with ML (Qiao Jin Nan) to prove to his friend that he has a father too.
The next day, FL saw QYM crying on a street and took him home. Her mobile ran out of battery hence she was not able to contact QYM’s family. In the middle of the nite, there was a group of bodyguards knocked on her door and took away QYM. She was sent to the police station accused of kidnapping QYM.
6 years ago, FL returned home from overseas without baggage, graduation certificate and was pregnant. This has caused a crisis for her small family. Her parent forced her to tell them the identity of baby’s father and to abort the baby. When they were told that this will affect her chances of getting pregnant again, they allowed her to keep the baby. Her parent then started to hide her pregnancy from their relatives. During this time, her father passed away and her mother blamed FL for that. After she gave birth to the baby, her mother sent her baby away without her knowledge. FL did not get to see the baby or even know the sex of the baby. FL’s mom met with an accident and went into coma. FL has been searching for her baby even though she has no clue where was her baby.
The baby was took home by ML’s mother. She showed the DNA report to ML to prove to ML that QYM is his biological son and told ML that FL has died in a car accident. Despite knowing that QYM is his son, ML did not show any tenderness or love to QYM all these years.
FL’s mother woke up five years later.
At this time, you will probably wonder how come ML and FL did not recognise each other?
6 six years ago, FL went into depression after a break-up with her boyfriend in Paris. She could not sleep and went for a counselling with a psychologist (Dr Brown). Dr Brown suggested that she works in a hospital temporarily to get her attention away from her break-up. Coincidentally, there was a Chinese patient requesting for an assistant to help with his daily activities. The patient (ML) has temporarily blindness while waiting for surgery. That was how they met. ML’s mother objected their relationship and when ML went for his surgery, FL left. FL was in depression again and tried to kill herself. She then asked Dr Brown to use hypnosis to erase the most painful part of her memories.
As for the rest of the story, I suggest that you listen to the audiobook.
