I like the set-up of this story. The ML and FL were married for 8 years. FL entire focus was on her husband until she lost her own self and pride. FL took a risk to revive their supposedly love and want to see whether will ML notice the difference after she asks for a divorce.
ML (Luo Yi Lu) is one of the most eligible bachelors being the 2nd master of the wealthy Luo Family. He studied in the USA and after working a few years there, he returned to take over some of his family business. What shocked everyone was, ML is already married for 8 years and a father to three children. Since it was difficult to get an interview with ML or any of the Luo family, the focus turned towards FL (Shang Cui Wei).
FL looks like a perfect woman and wife in everyone’s eyes. It was known to everyone that FL chased after ML during their University days. Her close friends gave up on her as she put 100% of her attention on ML until she has lost her own pride and true self. Whatever ML wanted FL to do, FL will complete it and will never argue or disagree with ML.
One day, FL wakes up and look at the man sleeping next to her. FL decided to leave ML. FL asks ML to meet her for dinner. During dinner, FL asks for a temporary separation. ML asks FL why not divorce straight away? FL agrees.
After the divorce, FL moves to another residence with her daughter. Her two sons study in the USA. Both ML and FL’s parents never believed they will last when they first got married. After the divorce, ML’s mother starts to arrange match making dates for ML. FL resigns from the Lou family company and lives her life as a woman of leisure.
ML starts to notice all the small changes in FL after the divorce. He also realises how much FL has done in the past to make him feel comfortable and contented. When ML sees FL with another man, the feeling of jealousy creeps in.
One day, after a flower arrangement class, FL goes out with her classmate. Before her classmate leaves, she gave a bouquet of roses to FL because it is Valentine Day. Her classmate does not want her to feel left out. FL walks around the street and decides to go shopping. Suddenly, her mobile phone rings. It is ML. ML says he saw a silly girl looks like FL on the street with a bouquet of roses and a few shopping bags. ML asks who give her the flowers. FL tells ML that she will throw away the flowers if he appears in front of her with a stalk of rose. FL is suddenly hugged by ML from behind. FL asks ML to sleep with her and seduces him by saying that she wants to show off her new nighties to him.
The next morning, ML wakes up alone. ML is angry that FL left him in the middle of the night.
When FL goes to the USA to visit her sons, she realises how selfish she has been in past where all her attention was on ML. FL decides to stay on in the USA with her kids. ML travels often to the USA to see FL and their children.
After one year of separation, ML asks FL to return to Taiwan. FL tells her children that she needs to go back to Taiwan to arrange for their school first. FL is surprised when ML comes to pick her up at the airport. She did not give ML her flight details. ML appears at the airport with a stalk of rose as a replacement for last Valentine. FL stays at ML’s house but she sleeps in the guest room. The next morning, when FL walks into ML’s room, she sees his PA arranges his clothing and she seems very familiar with ML’s routine.
FL is feeling unsettled and decide to get away temporary. ML calls and leaves messages on her phone but there is no reply from FL. ML finds FL at last. ML asks why FL would think that he did not love her? ML says it takes him a long time to figure out why FL asked for a divorce. He scolds FL for her stupidity thinking that her love is only one-sided. ML says that he has always agreed and allowed FL to do what she wanted and he has never stopped her. Hence when FL asked for a divorce, he just agreed. ML says by accommodating whatever FL wants is his method of loving her. FL cries and realises how wrong she has been. ML says he loves her and want to be together again.
