The story was narrated by a woman called Doris. At first, I was not sure who was the main Female Lead (FL).
The story started with Doris narrating her relationship with FL. They knew each other during childhood. Though they went to primary and secondary separately, they got together again when they were in University. During a business dinner, Doris heard a rumour about Ms Cong as someone’s mistress. When Doris got home, she asked FL and FL started to talk about her past.
Ms Cong (FL) was 19 years old when she first met Song Lian, a playboy from a wealthy family. He introduced a lot of fun to FL. They were together for four years before they parted. In the second year, FL was pregnant but knowing that they were still young, she aborted the baby. During her recovery period, she saw a Q msg on Song Lian’s laptop that he still loves his ex-girlfriend. After FL and Song Lian separated, FL met Fang Chen Yu half-year later. That relationship did not last as well.
Song Lian’s mother once said that FL was not suitable as a wife. After FL overheard that comment, FL knew that Song Lian would never marry her. FL has different types of boyfriends then one day something changed in FL’s live. FL’s dad hospitalised and her brother migrated. FL took over the running of the family’s business. She was so busy and lonely as well.
Doris received a message from FL that she has fallen in love. FL went missing for ½ month. A month later, FL appeared in front of Doris. FL looks different and yet beautiful. FL fell in love at first sight with Fang Chen Yu. Fang Chen Yu born and grew up in Shen Zhen. They met in Cambodia. After 10 days of being together, Fang Chen Yu proposed to FL. Fang Chen Yu and FL maintained a long distance relationship for 6 months. FL split with Fang Chen Yu when reality kicks in. FL was responsible towards her family to look after her dad’s business meanwhile Fang Chen Yu did not want to move to Beijing. It was a painful separation for FL. After that separation, FL went back to the time before she met Fang Chen Yu, where she has multiple boyfriends but none of them lasted.
When FL got into some trouble while entertaining a business associate, she called Zhou Fei for help. FL then asked Zhou Fei to pretend that she was his mistress and Zhou Fei agreed. Their relationship turned serious when Zhou Fei proposed to FL. Zhou Fei came from a complicated family background. Both parents divorced and remarried with children. FL and Zhou Fei flew to the USA to meet with Zhou Fei’s mother. Zhou Fei’s mother likes FL. When FL and Zhou Fei returned to Beijing, they arranged for both families to meet to talk about the wedding. Song Lian’s mother was present and she told Mrs Zhou about the baby that FL had with Song Lian before. The next day, FL split with Zhou Fei.
After Zhou Fei, FL no longer believes in love. When FL told her parents she wanted to adopt a child, her father rejected. FL’s mother told FL that they knew everything that happened to FL but never talked about it knowing her characters. FL cried and told her mum that she does not feel good enough as a wife or mother. Her mother was very sad hearing that.
FL received a wedding invitation to Japan. She met with Pan Jin Au/Pan Zhou, who was one of the attendees to the wedding. On FL’s last day in Japan, Pan Zhou asked FL whether she remembered him a few years ago. FL apologised that she could not recall. Pan Zhou said they met many years ago when she was crying by the roadside. During that time, FL asked Pan Zhou to buy her a drink. That day, FL was having her first fight with Song Lian. FL followed Pan Zhou to meet with his friends and started to drink ignoring everyone around her. After that, she followed Pan Zhou into his car and they started to get intimate. Then suddenly, FL changed her mind and got out from Pan Zhou’s car.
Pan Zhou saw FL, 6 months ago before the Japan’s trip. Pan Zhou tried to find out more information about FL and even began to follow her. When Pan Zhou saw the missing engagement ring on FL, he decided to approach FL. The wedding invitation was a plot by Pan Zhou to create an opportunity to meet FL formally. After they returned to Beijing, they started to date. FL was pregnant after the first time they have sex. FL wanted to keep the baby but was not sure about marriage. Pan Zhou’s mother likes FL. FL also discovered that Fang Chen Yu is actually Pan Zhou’s cousin.
FL blamed herself for her selfishness when she heard that Fang Chen Yu did not marry a few years ago. After FL received the wedding invitation from Fang Chen Yu, FL purposely asked to meet Fang Chen Yu before his wedding. FL thought that Fang Chen Yu’s wedding cancelled because of that meeting.
FL asked for some time to get away and Pan Zhou agreed and fully supported her decision. FL went to the USA meanwhile Pan Zhou stayed on to look after both their family businesses. Pan Zhou went to Shen Zhen to meet with Fang Chen Yu. Fang Chen Yu said the wedding invitation to FL was some form of farewell to their relationship. When he got back to Shen Zhen, he felt guilty and confessed to his fiancée. He did not break up with his fiancée and they decided to postpone their marriage.
FL was alone in the USA but she continued to keep in touch with her family, Pan Zhou and Doris via the phone. When Pan Zhou received news that Fang Chen Yu has married, Pan Zhou flew to the USA to propose to FL again. This time, FL agreed. They flew back to Beijing and FL gave birth to a baby girl. When the girl turned 1-year-old, they decided to fulfil the wishes of their parents to have a wedding ceremony.
