I think that was the moment when everything started to change.
I don’t know why but I had never liked anyone in all those years. Even though I liked men, I had never taken a liking to any.
I thought it was out of sympathy and pity at that time.
But someone once said that love stemming from sympathy and pity is actually more down-to-earth. I think it was Zheng Zhihua talking about his wife.

ayszhang's comment: I think this is one of the most realistic, down-to-earth Chinese BL stories out there. No need to say, I strongly recommend this. OvOb I think it's fairly lighthearted (for the most part). The narrator is pretty funny XD
