Comment:

Another great story by Ding Mo.  I always like the sexy part of the story, unfortunately it got edited by the producer.   The side stories were about Ye Wei Nong, Zhou Ya Ze, Bai An An, and how FL and ML fell in love in high school. Bai An An’s story is quite sad.  Bai An An was Li Cheng’s girlfriend.  After she became a spy, she fell in love with Zhang Hen Tian.

Summary:

Mu Shan (FL) went to her client’s office to discuss payment matter and bumped into a group of workers on strike.  The workers claimed that their company mistreated them.  FL got surrounded by the workers when she tried to leave.  A car came.  The workers got beaten up.  FL’s client asked for help from a gangster boss.

A journalist, named Dong Xuan Cheng managed to record the incident.  Dong Xuan Cheng was FL’s university mate.  FL went to visit the workers’ leader, Da Xiao and promised to send him money for his effort.  That night, Da Xiao got another visit from the gangster’s boss.  Da Xiao warned FL be careful of Rong Tai organisation.

FL went to see Dong Xuan Cheng to ask for more info about Rong Tai.  Dong Xuan Cheng explained to FL in Lin City, there are two main corporate giants.  One of them is Rong Tai. Rong Tai has legal and illegal businesses.  It is headed by Ding Mo Yan, married but has countless women.  Ding Mo Yan has a son, named Ding Hang, a capable young man.  Rong Tai’s main competitor is Lu Zhao Yan in the real estate business.  According to rumour, the Lu’s family started their fortune from illegal business.

FL received a business proposal from Rong Tai.  FL rejected the proposal.  FL got an invitation to Rong Tai for a meeting.  FL met Ding Hang, a charming young man.  FL closed the business deal with Rong Tai.  FL shocked when she saw Chen Bei Yao (ML), who is the Vice President of Rong Tai.     

FL was only 17 years old when she became ML’s lover.  FL’s father is a school principal and her parents put lots of hope on FL.  FL’s parents disappointed when she got involved with ML who was 1 year older and transferred from another school.  FL could not withstand the pressure from her parents and broke up with ML.  That was 8 years ago.

ML warned FL not to get too close to Ding Hang.  FL noticed Ding Hang’s cousin, Man Shu likes ML.  Ding Hang started to pursue FL.  FL went to work one weekend at Rong Tai and received a call from Ding Hang.  Ding Hang claimed that he was also working in the office.  Ding Hang bought lunch for both.  After lunch, Ding Hang suggested they watch a movie to relax.  Ding Hang tried to get intimate with FL.  FL wanted to stop Ding Hang but got interrupted by a sound.  Ding Hang went out from the room to check and saw Ding Mo Yan fucking Man Shu.  Ding Hang scolded his father and asked him to stop but Ding Mo Yan refused.  A man ran in to stop Ding Hang from hurting Ding Mo Yan, claiming that Ding Mo Yan ate some aphrodisiac drug earlier on and how he accidentally bumped into Man Shu on the way back.

Suddenly, the incident changed.  Ding Hang got jabbed and fainted.  ML shot Ding Mo Yan.  FL shocked when she saw the murder.  FL tried calling the police.  ML found FL in the office.  FL used a golf club to hit ML.  ML bled but did not let FL goes.  ML took FL away from the murder scene.  ML locked FL in a house for a few days.  Ding Hang got accused of killing his own father.

ML told FL, Rong Tai was originally owned by his father, Jiang Ming.  ML is Jiang Ming’s illegitimate son.  Ding Mo Yan betrayed Jiang Ming and stole the company.  Jiang Ming’s wife and ML’s mother died after they got rape.   Wen Bi Zhen (Ding Hang’s maternal uncle) managed to free Ding Hang from the accusation.  Ding Hang suspected ML is the mastermind behind his father’s murder and the fall of Rong Tai.

FL went home a few days later.  FL told the police she got hit, fainted and locked up in a house.  After a few days, her kidnappers released her.   FL claimed, she did not see anything.  Ding Hang appeared at FL’s house.  FL pitied Ding Hang, cooked him a meal and gave her ATM card to him.  Ding Hang initially suspected FL could be involved but after seeing her gesture, he changed his mind.  Ding Hang told FL, he will come back to pursue her once he gets his fortune back.

ML invited FL for lunch.  FL received a call from her mother claiming she got a discount from FL’s friend.  After FL put down the phone, FL questioned ML’s intention.  ML told FL, he is trying to pursue her.  FL surprised with ML’s answer.  ML asked FL to consider his proposal.

FL has her own principle and did not want to get involve with man who meddled in illegal business.  FL ready to reject ML.  FL stopped by police and brought in for questioning.  FL gave the same answer.  The police officers tied FL to a chair and threaten to harm her.  FL thought of telling the truth but stopped because she did not want ML getting hurt.   FL fainted and when she woke up, she saw ML.  ML apologised for what FL had gone through.  ML started to kiss FL and they almost have sex.

ML brought FL to a dinner.  FL saw Ye Wei Nong, an old friend who went missing before. ML left the two women to talk.  When ML about to enter the room again, he overheard their conversation.  FL’s mother threatened to kill herself if FL did not break up with ML.  FL had an abortion when she was 17 years old.  FL told Ye Wei Nong, she no longer loves ML.

ML has an expert who is skilled in making different types of potions.  ML got him to blow incense into FL’s house to make her sleep soundly.  ML walked into FL’s room and started to touch her and kiss her.  ML left after half an hour later.  This was not the first time,  ML did that.

FL attended a business party and saw Ding Hang and ML.  After she got home, she got a call from Ding Hang.  FL went out to see Ding Hang.  FL suspected Ding Hang already knew of her involvement with ML.  FL rejected Ding Hang’s offer to become his girlfriend.  Ding Hang told FL, Lu Zhao Yan asked Ding Hang to marry his sister, Lu Xia.  FL said Ding Hang will refuse the proposal because the Lu’s family was not powerful enough to give Ding Hang what he wanted. Ding Hang suggested they danced, and then he kissed FL despite her objection.  Ding Hang let FL go after a passionate kiss.  

FL got a call from ML telling her to take care of herself because of recent gangster fights in town.  FL noticed the same, and was packing to go back to Bei City.  Neither one, wanted to end the call.  Suddenly, FL heard gunshots from the background, and there was no reply from ML. 

FL ran out of the house wanting to go to ML, but she has no idea where to go.  FL tried to call ML many times, and her call answered by Zhou Ge.  Zhou Ge said ML got injured badly.  3 days later, FL received a call from Ye Wei Nong claiming that ML was still in critical condition and the doctor said ML has low chances of surviving.  FL went to see ML.  FL did not mind being with ML even though he was in coma.  FL  spent her day either in the office or at the hospital. 

Ding Hang went to see his uncle, Wen Bi Zhen.  Ding Hang was not aware that Lu Zhao Yan had paid killer to kill ML.  Wen Bi Zhen warned Ding Hang not to get involve in Lu Zhao Yan’s illegal business.

Ding Hang went to a meeting with Lu Zhao Yan.  After the meeting Ding Hang received a call from FL but there was no one talking.  Ding Hang called back a few times.  FL answered and claimed that she must have accidentally called his mobile.  Ding Hang almost got killed if not for FL’s phone calls.  Lu Zhao Yan and his staff got bombed.  Lu Zhao Yan died.  Ding Hang went after the so-called enemy but the enemy already been murdered.  But in the eyes of the Lu Clan, Ding Hang has helped them to avenge Lu Zhao Yan’s death.  Lu Xia (Lu Zhao Yan’s sister) suggested Ding Hang to take over her brother’s business.  In return, she wanted Ding Hang to give a sum of money to her mother, sister-in-law,and herself.  Lu Xia got admitted to a prestigious university in USA.  Lu Xia suggested Ding Hang get engage with her and they can cancel their engagement once Ding Hang settles down in his new position. Ding Hang agreed and promised to look after Lu Xia like his sister.

FL felt someone kissing her.  ML woke up from his coma 20 days later.  FL suspected ML woke up much earlier and the death of Lu Zhao Yan was linked to him.  FL confronted ML.  ML did not deny.  FL left ML in anger and Lin City.  ML told Zhao Ge since FL did not want to stay willingly, he will use the threat to force her to return to him.

In Beijing, FL noticed ML has arranged a secret bodyguard for her.  FL received a call from her mother telling her, she lost 3 million, and her father got arrested because of corruption.  FL found out, her mother owed money to Zhao Ge’s company.  FL knows this is a plot arranged by ML.  FL returned to Lin city to see ML. 

FL and ML argued. ML blamed FL’s parents for the lost of their baby.  ML told FL, he went to see the clinic where she had her abortion.  FL said what they did was wrong and her parents did was the best for her. ML forced FL to stay with him for 3 years and to give him a baby to compensate for the lost of their first baby.  FL reluctantly agreed.  If ML refused to let FL go after 3 years, she will tell the police the truth about Ding Mo Yan’s death.  Actually, FL also wants ML’s baby to complete her love to ML.

FL and ML attended a charity party and saw Ding Hang and Lu Xia.  Ding Hang corned FL and asked whether she was willing as ML’s mistress.   Ding Hang got too close to FL and FL felt uncomfortable.  Suddenly, ML appeared and punched Ding Hang. ML asked to speak with Ding Hang privately before they got called away to meet the Mayor.

ML suggested they visit FL’s parents.  FL refused at first.  FL’s mother saw FL in a chauffeur driven car.  FL’s mother showed FL , properties’ titles she received from ML.  FL told her mother that her boyfriend is ML.  FL’s mother got a shock.  FL persuaded her mother to have dinner with ML to give him a chance.  ML was very polite and apologised to FL’s parents for the past.  FL got her parent’s approval to continue her relationship with ML.

ML went to USA for a meeting.  When ML got home, he saw FL playing cards with Zhou Ge and Tian Tian.  FL started to soften towards ML after they met her parents.  ML surprised when FL kissed him. This is the first time FL takes the initiative to kiss after they got back together.  FL still loves ML.

ML took FL to meet Lin Yu, a triad leader in the south. FL met a young man named Xun who claimed as Lin Ye’s boyfriend.  This is the start of nightmare for FL and ML.  After the first meeting, Xun tried to get close to FL and kidnapped her.  FL woke up in the golden triangle part of Thailand.  ML offended a drug lord called Shou Ling.  ML did not want to do drug business.  Shou Ling wanted to use FL to force ML to help him.

FL heard that the VIPs from China has arrived.  FL shocked to see Ding Hang instead of ML.  Shou Ling decided to work with Ding Hang after ML rejected him.  Ding Hang tried to protect FL.  The next day, ML came.  ML still refuse to do drug business.  ML offered an alternative business deal that could double Shou Ling’s entire fortune within a short period.  Shou Ling accepted ML’s proposal and released ML and FL. 

It was a trap set by ML.  ML made Shou Ling lose all his fortune.  ML already planned the escape route, but it did not go as planned when Zhou Ya Ze went missing.  Shou Ling sent his staff to catch ML and FL.  ML got shot a few times.  FL could have escaped, but she ran back to help ML.  Both got captured by Xun. 

Shou Ling tried to rape FL for revenge.  Luckily Ding Hang came in time to save FL.  Ding Hang, ML and FL used Shou Ling’s life as shield to escape.  FL shot Shou Ling.  They asked for shelter from a widow in a small village.  Ding Hang also got injured.  FL gave both men fair treatment.  ML got jealous seeing FL with Ding Hang and same with Ding Hang when he saw FL with ML.  FL got news that Shou Ling’s competitor, Jun Mo Lin wanted to catch ML.

ML, Ding Hang and FL managed to escape but FL got shot.  Ding Hang returned to China.  FL stayed in Thailand to recuperate.  ML gave a lot of money to Jun Mo Lin.  ML wanted Xun’s life but Jun Mo Lin refused.   Xun visited FL while she was recuperating in the hotel.   FL could not bring herself to get angry with Xun because Xun protected FL when she was in Shou Ling’s camp. 

After ML and FL returned to China, ML proposed to FL.  FL did not accept immediately.  Ye Wei Nong advised FL to consider carefully if FL loves ML.  FL accepted ML marriage proposal.  ML was so happy and promised FL, he will get rid of the illegal business and asked for time for that.  FL felt very happy when she heard ML said that.  Ding Hang appeared outside the Marriage Registrar Office when ML and FL went to register their marriage.  FL thanked Ding Hang for saving her life and apologised that she could not love him.

ML found out his trusted assistant, Li Cheng is a Police Spy.  ML offered Li Cheng a big sum of money to run away with his girlfriend, Bai An An who is also a Police Spy and Zhang Hen Tian’s mistress.  Bai An An got captured by Zhang Hen Tian.  At first everyone thought Li Cheng died in an explosion, but he survived.

Li Cheng came back to negotiate with ML.  Li Cheng told ML he has all the evidence to charge ML.  Li Cheng persuaded ML to work with the police to capture Zhang Hen Tian and in return, they will lower his prison sentence to 10 years.  ML negotiated down to 7 years. 

ML went home to tell FL.  ML wanted to run away with FL.  If they run away, FL will not see her friends and family again.  ML saw the uncertainty in FL’s eyes, and he could not bring himself to do that to FL.  Li Cheng went to see FL and asked her convince ML to work with the police.  When FL refused, Li Cheng told FL that it was ML who arranged the police to harass her before.  FL asked ML and ML did not deny.  ML quietly sent FL away to Panama while he stays on to cooperate with the police.   ML wanted a clean slate to start over again with FL. ML did not mind going to prison for that chance.

When FL woke up, she was already in Panama.  FL saw a familiar face looking at her.  ML recruited Xun to protect FL.  FL forced Xun to bring her back to China.  FL wants to stay with ML.  ML’s heart moved but worried when he saw FL.   FL got pregnant.

Li Cheng brought Ding Hang to meet ML and FL.  Ding Hang has also agreed to work with the police to bring Zhang Hen Tian down.  Li Cheng asked ML and Ding Hang to put aside their differences to work with the police.

Zhou Ya Ze got shot.  ML arranged Zhou Ya Ze to recuperate at Lin Yu’s place.  ML also arranged FL to stay with Zhou Ya Ze to get Lin Yu’s protection while he deals with Zhang Hen Tian.

Bai An An got pregnant with Zhang Hen Tian’s baby.  Zhang Hen Tian is smuggling weapon and no one could find enough evidence to charge him.  Zhang Hen Tian sent Bai An An and his son away.  Zhang Hen Tian sent his staff to kill FL.  Zhou Ya Ze got shot at the same spot and died in FL’s arms.   Ye Wei Nong came in time to save FL. 

Zhang Hen Tian held Mayor Xu hostage.  Bai An An came and persuaded Zhang Hen Tian to surrender but Zhang Hen Tian refused.  Bai An An stole a pistol from Li Cheng and used her own life to threaten Zhang Hen Tian.  After Zhang Hen Tian said he will not give in to a woman, Bai An An shot herself in the head.  Zhang Hen Tian went mad and pulled his trigger to shoot the Mayor.  ML shot Zhang Hen Tian hence saved the Mayor.

ML and Ding Hang got arrested.  Ding Hang plotted an explosion and escaped.  FL got a call from Ding Hang to say goodbye.  FL went into labour.  During the labour, ML came.  It was Ye Wei Nong who helped to arrange ML to present during FL’s labour. 

4 months later, ML got released and reunited with FL.
