I am taking a short break from Ding Mo’s book to listen to a light-hearted love story. This story got adapted into a Chinese drama series called “A Love So Beautiful”. It reminded me of “I Don’t Like This World, I Only Like You”. Audiobook 1 is free. Audiobook 2 is only free for the first 10 episodes.

FL (Chen Xiao Xi)’s father got admitted after a fall. FL contacted her ex-boyfriend, Jiang Chen (ML) who is a doctor for help. ML arranged to move FL’s father to his hospital, and recommended Dr Su to do the surgery. Dr Su told FL, she has never seen ML with another girl. The hospital staff suspected ML could be a gay.
FL fell in love with ML when she was 16 years old. FL and ML were neighbours and grew up together. FL pursued ML and got rejected initially. FL finally won ML’s heart. They were together for 4 years. ML proposed marriage to FL when he noticed FL became very popular. ML’s mother wanted FL to sign a pre-nuptial agreement. FL’s father got angry. FL’s father felt that ML’s parents looked down on them, hence warned FL not to sign the agreement. Otherwise, he will sever their daughter father relationship. FL show the agreement to ML. ML went home and argued with his mother. ML’s mother threatened FL not to marry her son otherwise she will kill herself. FL broke up with ML. That was 3 years ago.
FL’s mother asked FL to give thanks to ML with a basket of fruits. ML suggested FL to find him a girlfriend if she wants to repay her gratitude. FL introduced a business associate, Zhuang Dong Na to ML. One day, Zhuang Dong Na called FL to ask her to go to a party as ML’s partner. Zhuang Dong Na claimed she could not go because of her business trip and did not want other girls to target ML at the party. FL reluctantly agreed.
ML came to pick FL and take her to buy party dress at Su Rui’s boutique (Dr Su’s brother). ML introduced FL to his patient, Zhang Shu Ji, a prominent figure in the society. Zhang Shu Ji joked that he wanted to introduce his granddaughter to ML as his girlfriend. FL met Hu Ran Ran, Zhang Shu Ji’s mistress at the party. FL finds Hu Ran Ran very seductive and interesting.
ML sent FL home. FL noticed ML has gastric pain and insisted he comes up to her apartment for some food. A few days later, Zhuang Dong Na invited FL for dinner to thank her for attending the party on her behalf. FL became friends with Su Rui and Su Rui went with her. After dinner, ML sent everyone home. ML dropped FL last. ML asked FL to apologise to him. FL is very naïve and not smart enough to understand what ML was saying. FL did as told. ML kissed FL.
The next day, FL felt very bad and called Zhuang Dong Na to confess her wrong. Zhuang Dong Na laughed at her and told her that it was a pretence between ML and her. ML wanted FL to return to him.
Wu Bai Song came to visit. Wu Bo Song was FL’s good friend in high school. FL scolded Wu Bo Song for not keeping in touch. Wu Bo Song explained that his father went bankrupt after he went overseas to study. He has to work to support himself and no time to keep in touch with FL. Wu Bo Song said he just returned home recently and met ML at the hospital, when he fell sick. That was how he got FL’s house address. FL told Wu Bo Song about her relationship with ML. Wu Bo Song advised FL to pursue her own happiness and ignore the objections from ML’s parents.
FL and ML reconciled. Just like before, ML likes to tease FL. FL met Hu Ran Ran at the hospital, when Zhang Shu Ji has another heart attack. Hu Ran Ran warned FL to keep a close watch on ML as Zhang Qian Rong is trying to seduce ML. FL told Hu Ran Ran she trusted ML.

FL saw a girl jumped from the first floor. When ML got to the hospital, he noticed FL has a shock. ML took FL home. ML told FL, he is not working the next day and insisted FL to take a day off to spend time with him.

ML’s parents came to town. ML was busy at the hospital and asked FL to meet them at the airport. FL saw her ex-schoolmate, Li Wei came with ML’s parents. Just like before, ML’s parents treated FL very coldly. During dinner, ML’s mother insisted that Li Wei stays at ML’s apartment. ML refused at first but then relented. ML took out his house key and car key. ML commented that since the apartment and the car bought by his parents, he is giving back to them. ML announced he will marry FL despite their objection. ML and FL left after that.

Hu Ran Ran told FL, Zhang Shu Ji forced Hu Ran Ran to become his mistress. FL asked Hu Ran Ran not to hurt Wu Bo Song. Wu Bo Song and Hu Ran Ran’s relationship did not last long. Hu Ran Ran broke up with Wu Bo Song claiming that Zhang Shu Ji is becoming suspicious, and she worries that he might hurt Wu Bo Song.
Wu Bo Song went to see FL. ML came home, and suggested they go out for dinner. FL got drunk. ML proposed to FL. Even though FL drunk, she was aware of what had happened. FL upset that ML did not propose to her properly with flowers and ring. FL worried ML took her for granted since she was the one who pursues him first.
The next morning, FL ignored ML. ML saw FL cried and asked FL what had happened. FL fainted. FL woke up in the hospital. Dr Su as usual, tried to play a prank on FL. Dr Su and the nurse made a bet on FL’s reaction after they told FL that she is pregnant. FL overheard Dr Su’s conversation with her father in the toilet. Dr Su advised her father to quickly send Su Rui overseas before Xiao Xi dies. FL thought they were talking about her having a terminal illness. In fact, they were talking about Su Rui’s pet.
ML proposed to FL formally. They got married at last.
