This story is a keeper and going into my all time favourite tag.   The story is shorter than other Mo Wu Bi Ge’s stories.  Episode 1 – 57 was about FL returning to G city wanting to see ML for one last time but ended up together with ML.   Episodes 58 onwards were about how they met and started their relationship in university.  The last few episodes were epilogue about their life after marriage and a bit about their daughter’s love life.

Summary:

FL (Lu You Yan) left ML (Gu Ye Bai) 4 years ago.  FL came back to G City after the death of her brother (Chi Pu) and worked as waitress in a café.  For the past 4 years, FL has not kept in touch with her friends in G City except for Susan.  Susan has kept her updated on ML.  ML has a new girlfriend (Zhou Huai An).  Zhou Huai An and FL used to study in the same faculty.

FL received a call from an old friend (Xu Qing) inviting her to attend a party.   FL saw ML and Zhou Huai An at the party.  All their ex-classmates gave FL an accusing look because of her betrayal 4 years ago.  Everyone knew FL left ML for Chi Pu but they did not know that Chi Pu was her brother.  During the party, they played a game of “Truth or Dare”.  FL got picked and asked why she left ML 4 years ago.  FL did not answer but looked at ML longingly.  At the end, FL drank a glass of wine as punishment.  FL has no tolerance for alcohol and ran to the restroom.

When FL came out from the restroom, most of the people have left except for a few close friends.   Lin Zi Yan (ML’s friend) purposely arranged for FL to hitch a ride with ML and Zhou Huai An.  FL gave them a fake address.  When Zhou Huai An suggested to walk FL home, she rejected.  FL asked to speak with ML privately.  FL asked ML to hug her but got rejected.

FL did not go home but went to the café she works.  Zhang Lei (FL’s boss) saw FL outside the café in the cold and brought her home.  Zhang Lei shocked when he saw where FL stays.  FL stays in the poorest area in the city.  The next day, in the café, FL saw a girl crying.  The girl upset that her painting got spoilt and she needed it to go for an interview.  When FL got to know where the girl was going, FL advised the girl not to give up.  FL immediately drew a drawing for the girl to take for the interview.

Out of curiously, FL follow the girl to Yi Xun Group Company to have a look.  ML saw FL trying to hide from everyone’s attention.  ML instructed his staff to lock the door of the room where he saw FL.  ML then asked his PA to buy lunch from a specific stall.  When ML walked into the room, he noticed that FL hid under the table.  FL waited for ML to finish his lunch not knowing that ML was actually working.  Suddenly a woman walked in.  It was Chu Ke.  Chu Ke likes ML and tried to seduce ML.

FL suddenly voiced her objection from under the table.  After Chu Ke left, ML kissed FL.  When ML tried to get more serious with FL, she purposely called out Chi Pu’s name.  ML got angry and apologised for kissing FL.  ML got to know from the new recruit that her drawing was actually drew by FL.  ML surprised and wondered what other secret that FL kept from him.

FL bumped into Xu Qing on her out of the company.  Xu Qing jealous when she saw the love bites on FL’s neck.  FL knew Xu Qing loves ML and failed to seduce ML in university.  FL told Xu Qing that she came back just to see ML lives a happy life with Zhou Huai An and she will leave in a month time.  After Xu Qing and FL left, a woman who overheard their conversation came out from another door.  It was Chu Ke.

That night, FL got harassed on her way home.  Luckily it was near the café and Zhang Lei and Dian Xiao Er chased the gangsters away.  Zhang Lei took FL to his home to stay the night.  Zhang Lei realised that he has fallen in love with FL.   The next day, a man called Frankie came to the café to invite FL for dinner in exchange for an invitation to attend ML’s art exhibition.  FL only realised Frankie was actually friends with ML after she got to the dinner venue.

ML offered to send FL home despite Frankie’s objection.  Instead of dropping FL the previous night, ML drove towards the slums where FL lives.  When they got there, the same group of hooligans were there to harm FL.  ML fight with them and got injured.  ML took FL to his home.  ML called his doctor  friend (Tang Huang) to his house.  ML told Lin Zi Yan that it was Chu Ke’s family gangster who tried to harm FL.   That night, ML could not stop himself from making love to FL.  FL longed for ML’s love and told herself that it is only for one night and she will stop seeing him after this.

The next day, they got a surprise visit.  Zhou Huai An returned suddenly from overseas and went to ML’s house.  FL hid herself and left after Zhou Huai An left.  FL went back to the café.  Zhang Lei was so worried the night before.  Zhang Lei came from a triad family and using his connection, he got to know that FL got saved by a man.  FL refused to tell him about ML.  FL tendered her resignation with Zhang Lei.  Zhang Lei suggested FL to move in to stay with him temporary.  FL agreed and in return, she will cook for Zhang Lei.

FL met Xu Qing, Lin Zi Yan, Frankie and Tang Huang at the café the next day.  FL felt awkward and left soon but she bumped into ML outside the cafe.  ML asked FL to leave with him if she wants to protect Zhang Lie from the gangster.  Instead of going to ML’s house, he went to FL’s rented house instead.  Their friends followed them.

They were shocked when they saw where FL was staying and heard a 4 years old girl called FL mummy.  FL asked the girl to call ML “daddy”.  ML was stunned but happy.  But his happiness did not last long.  FL likes her neighbour’s daughter a lot hence made her as her goddaughter.  FL reluctant to let her friends into her house but they forced their way in.  Everyone got shocked.  The set-up looks familiar but it was dirty and disgusting.  Frankie and Xu Qing came out from the house calling FL crazy.

FL broke down and ran away.  ML went after FL and took her to his house.   When ML got home, he immediately instructed someone to do a thorough investigation on FL and Chi Pu.  Meanwhile, FL called her father to ask him to hide all the evidence on the relationship between Chi Pu and her mother.  The investigators told ML that Chi Pu has passed away and in his last moment in the hospital, there was a woman with Chi Pu and that woman was not FL.   The Investigator could not find any relationship between Chi Pu and FL and suspected that they were lovers.  ML was still suspicious of the relationship between Chi Pu and FL.

ML broke up with Huai An.  FL got back with ML.  Out of jealousy, Huai An got in touch with ML’s grandfather and they plotted to get FL to leave ML.  They found out about FL’s heart problem.  Initially, FL refused to leave ML but then agreed.  FL met a girl called Chu Qing who was ML twin brother’s girlfriend.  Chu Qing loves ML but after ML got to know that his brother has fallen in love with Chu Qing, he distanced himself from Chu Qing.  Chu Qing played a role in killing Gu Ye Lin (ML’s twin brother).  FL used Chu Qing’s story and weave a story that she was involved in the death of Gu Ye Lin.  ML pretended to believe and broke up with FL.

ML knew his grandfather and uncle was playing some dirty tricks to hurt FL, hence he took the opportunity to cover up his feelings towards FL.   But feelings could not be controlled no matter how you tried to hide them.  ML could not stop himself from seeing FL in secret but pretended to ignore FL and treated her coldly.  FL regretted her action and pleaded for forgiveness.  FL’s best friend Susan came back to G City and could not stand looking at both FL and ML.  Susan knows both of them are still very much in love.

Susan asked Lin Zi Yan to help her to create an opportunity for ML and FL to meet. Lin Zi Yan proposed an engagement party.  FL saw Chen Yuan during the party.  Chen Yuan was Chi Pu’s ex girlfriend.  Chen Yuan was with Chi Pu before he passed away.  Chen Yuan advised FL to tell ML the truth.  Chen Yuan said she hated Chi Pu for not telling her truth even though she loves him.   FL wanted to tell ML the truth but stopped when Huai An threatened to kill herself if FL does.

A fire broke up in ML’s office.  Huai An lied to FL that ML could be in the burning building.  FL ran in.  When ML got to know that FL ran into the building to look for him, he ran in as well.  ML found out at last why FL left him 4 years ago.   FL’s father came to take FL away.  ML refused and proposed to FL in front of FL’s father and their friends.  FL refused to leave as well as she prefers to die in ML’s arm.

6 years ago….

Susan thought FL loved Wei Zi Jian and too shy confess her love.  During a game of truth or dare, Susan passed a phone number to FL to dare her to take up the challenge.  FL did not know who was the owner of the phone number and made a call.  ML answered the phone and thought it was a prank call.  FL made another call the next day.  One rainy day, ML saw FL outside his faculty.  FL has an umbrella and offered to help ML and even suggested that ML put his drawing in her bag.  After they reached their destination, FL turned to leave but stopped by ML.  ML told FL that he knows she was the one who made the prank calls.  FL felt embarrassed and asked ML for a movie and in return she will do what he asked.  FL became ML’s model for his assignment.  Very slowly, their relationship got closer.

ML misunderstood that FL loved Chi Pu and Wei Zi Jian. FL explained that Chi Pu was like a big brother and she denied that she has written love letters to Wei Zi Jian.   ML put on a dark black glasses to disguise his handsome look when he first met FL.  ML’s twin brother died and he tried to avoid the Gu family from finding him.  He also hide his drawing talent and pretended as a mediocre student in school.  Xia Professor found out ML’s talent from his friend, who is Magazine Editor from ML’s part-time assignment with the Magazine company.

Everyone in school spread rumour that FL was a harlot for getting involved with Chi Pu, Wei Zi Jian and ML.  When Wei Zi Jian bullied FL, ML challenged him for the first place in the drawing competition.  ML even challenged another boy on judo when he saw the boy bully FL.

FL worked part-time to support herself and told ML that she did not want to use her father’s money because her father did not love her mother.  ML’s heart twitched when he heard that and found the similarity with his mother’s story.  ML asked FL to stop working and said he will be responsible for her living expenses.  When FL said she wanted to go to Lu Shan for a holiday, ML took on a few drawing contest to win money to save for their trip.

FL’s father (Lu Hong Yi) misunderstood that her mother (Chi Cheng), who was a famous artist hid his ex-girlfriend (Wang Lu Yao) letter from him. Wang Lu Yao came from wealthy family.  Wang Lu Yao was Lu Hong Yi’s first lover.  Wang Lu Yao followed her family’s wish to marry the husband of their choosing.   Lu Hong Yi met Chi Cheng in Lu Shan.  They became friends and slowly their relationship got serious. Chi Cheng went to Lu Hong Yi’s house often to clean for him.  One day, Lu Hong Yi and Chi Cheng went to Lu Shan for a holiday and Lu Hong Yi proposed to Chi Cheng.  A few years later, Lu Hong Yi’s mother passed a letter that she hid from Lu Hong Yi many years ago to Chi Cheng to ask her to handle the matter.  In the letter, Wang Lu Yao wrote to say that she regretted her decision and canceled her engagement.  She will wait for Lu Hong Yi until she could not wait anymore.  Chi Cheng put the letter in the drawer and found out by Lu Hong Yi.  Lu Hong Yi got angry with Chi Cheng and said some hurtful words towards Chi Cheng.  He even said he will not marry Chi Cheng if he has seen the letter.  Their relationship got strained. One day, Chi Cheng went missing and later found dead in a hotel room.  Lu Hong Yi got upset with Chi Cheng when he saw a message on the Chi Cheng’s last drawing.  Lu Hong Yi married Wang Lu Yao very soon after the death of Chi Cheng.  FL upset that her father has forgotten her mother so soon.  Lu Hong Yi thought Chi Cheng loves a man called Shen.  On Chi Cheng’s death anniversary, Shen came.  He brought all Chi Cheng’s letters that she wrote for 50 years for her husband and daughter.  Shen  could not stand it and scolded Lu Hong Yi for his foolishness.  Lu Hong Yi got to know the truth and understood why Chi Cheng picked the first place they met to die alone.  Chi Cheng waited for her husband to realise the truth himself and to come looking for her.  Chi Cheng did not get her wish.  Lu Hong Yi regretted his action and realised how much he love Chi Cheng.  Every year, Lu Hong Yi will stay for a short time at the hotel where Chi Cheng died.  Lu Hong Yi even paid 50 years rental to the hotel owner.

FL and ML went to Lu Shan for holiday.  Wei Zi Jian set fire at the hotel to take revenge against FL and ML.  FL thought ML was in the hotel and ran into the burning building. When ML came out, he heard that FL ran in to look for him, he also ran into the building.  Both came out from the building at last.  That night ML did not want to wait anymore to make FL his woman.

Things started to change after they returned to G city.  FL saw how Chi Pu battle for his life in the hospital     Because of her heart disease.  FL broke up with ML and claimed that she has fallen in love with Chi PU.  Chi Pu and FL left G city suddenly.

The epilogue was about FL underwent a heart transplant surgery and they have a daughter called Gu Yi Yi.
