In elementary school, Xue Youka had an urological surgery, leading to him being forced to wear his cousin sister’s dress all summer as a boy…

A young master who lived in his maternal grandpa’s residence in the countryside, and led a pampered life saw him in his girly attire…

For the sake of cheating him out of spicy sticks and ice creams, Xue Youka used his cousin sister’s name and played house with him, becoming his little girlfriend. The other party even promised to marry him in the future.

Xue Youka bit the ice cream and nodded happily: “Brother, this is delicious! Buy me another one?”

When they parted, they were extremely reluctant. Xue Youka thought that his spicy sticks were gone. The eldest young master was also sad because he wanted to see his lovely girlfriend next winter vacation.

Years later, the eldest young master, who still missed his little girlfriend, met a junior who looked like his little girlfriend who had moved back then, on the university campus.

Eldest Young Master: Huh? ? ?

Super cute story! Baby Breath is that type of story best read when you're relaxing or just in need of something sweet and funny. I love our MC, he's strong and very endearing, not to mention quite pretty (^-^) v and then we have our dear ML, where should we start? He's quite comical in some way, add in the aloof cold prince archetype character, bam we have our ML! Every time he tries to deny his feelings for our MC makes me snicker, just admit your attracted to him... more>> lol

The childhood part of the story was very fun to read and the misunderstandings had me cracking up! The MC shamelessly continued to pretend to be a girl to be ML's girlfriend just for the free food 💀

Though the plot is nothing to write home about, it's a very nice rom-com to read in your spare time. Enjoy! <<less

Cute, fluffy, and heartwarming.

The MC is innocent (sometimes naive), hardworking, and smart (but has a bad memory).

The ML is coldand arrogant but super gentle to MC. Yeah, sounds like his character is flat and pretty cliché but in fact, he has a lot of flaws and childish moments that makes him real and unique.

Overall, this story centers on how the MC and ML met, developed feelings (mainly ML), and how they reunited again in college.

Edit: ok I continued (I blame being a fast reader, which lead to having nothing else to read) and I still don't like it. Almost started to like their romance until the past was brought up again and again *see rant below for details* the bit with the families is probably the only true drama. More like 2.5 stars but rounded down because I'm still not over the MC's memory.

Also random Chinese generalization that made me laugh

... more>>

"... genetic problems of the British, they are bald at a young age"

then later in the same chapter "Outside the window was a tree that was as bald as a British man.". 🤣


It's meh, very calm, meandering novel. The MC and ML are okay, the story is okay, the romance... you guessed it, it is okay, everything about it is just mediocre to me.

I wasn't a big fan of how much time was spent on their childhood, I don't remember the exact chapter but it was almost 20 chapters detailing their childhood summer


which would have been okay, a little boring but still okay if the MC didn't forget EVERYTHING about that summer except for a yacht. I mean he even forgets finding out he is allergic to seafood with the ML. He was 11 not 5. I remember things from when I was 11 and that was WAY more than 6 years ago for me and I sure would have remembered someone taking me to the hospital. Not to mention he spent a summer lying to the ML that he was girl and scamming food, stuff like that sticks with a person. No he doesn't have amnesia or any head trauma. This forgetfulness of the MC bugged me too much, talk about an author forcing a plot


Dropped at chapter 35. Might try to continue after my annoyance at the MC simmers down. 😆

MTLing it wasn't the easiest and some parts were kind of confusing. Really was 1 of the worst novels I've MTL lately. Not sure why this one didn't translate well, maybe the author didn't use grammar and spelling correctly in the original language? <<less

A very nice story.

To be honest, that's the only thing that comes to mind. A good story with good execution and very likeable characters. Both MC and ML are characters that feel real, they both have real personalities, aspirations and a healthy relationship. They are consistent throughout the whole story.

There is no drama or angst, the story goes smoothly and is a breath of fresh air, I definitely recommend to read it if you're tired of immature and naive MCs and typical overbearing president mls because these characters are nothing... more>> like that.

The story takes their relationship development as the main focus and their careers are more of a side plot that complements the romance but is still very enjoyable.

I didn’t give it 5 stars because it feels like the story lacks something, though I'm not sure what it is. However, I enjoyed it enough to give it 4 stars.

Definitely recommend to read it. <<less

The characters are really sweet and the story so far feels pretty fresh and different. Though I can't say much on ch 9, the premise hasn't even started yet QAQ.

Our main characters are still munchkins, one trying to get more candies and games and the other tasting his first puppy love. The other characters aren't ignored and the community built is engaging.

I just really really really hope someone pick it up

It's a bit annoying. The plot has holes and the MC and ML's brains also have holes...

... more>>

MC forgot almost everything about their childhood summer & although he was young and a lot of stuff happend in his family after that summer, the stuff that he did and experienced that summer isn't something easily forgotten so the only explaination is that he has a hole in his brain and the memories leaked through it...

As for ML, during childhood and at present he has a MAJOR BRAINHOLE... whatever the MC does is an implication of „MC liking him" eventhough he doesn't... EVERYTHING MC does is judged by him based on not common sense but his own assumptions (/brainholes)... everytime he is like „oh, he must be doing this because he likes me so much" or „oh, he is doing this deliberately" and MC is always just „ani? Whats going on with him? Anyway I can't be bothered to question it"... which further deepens the misunderstandings. Then there's the thing that everytime ML misunterstands an action of MC as „liking him so much" he treats him super gently & everytime MC does something super normal between friends or IN GENERELL super normal, just that it doesn't imply that „he likes him", he gets super moody and angry and it's super confusing for MC who doesn't even know whats going on and doesn't even see him as romantic interest... communication missing much


Anyway those who like the drama will have fun reading it

Its slightly annoying but bearable for me until it isn't anymore, since it really happens in EVERY exchange between the two... anyway at this point I'm dropping this. A pity because I actually like the concept of cutie stocktrader/cosplayer x mysterious/sickly drummer... it's so novel in this genre and could have had so much potential TT

+ MTL was also pretty hard to find <<less

This is also good novel, a bit funny.. MC is a coser, a bit naive but hard working, ML is rich, a drummer but got a heart problem when he was young.. No dog blood drama just fluffs and laugh..

It's 4.5 for me

Really nice, slice of life, novice in love story. Moody overthinking ML with Lovely simple mind MC

The lead spent 1 summer happily together before life tore them apart. ML indulged in his memorable one summer but for MC it's just one vague memory since there's so many things happened to him during the years (⁠・ั⁠ω⁠・ั⁠)

I do feel the anxious for Kaka, his character setting and background is so informative and relatable that I really anxiously thinking how author is going to execute the Happy Ending.

... more>>

The way author hint how MC growing up learning how to forget the bad memories ಥ⁠_⁠ಥ. Like his best buddy Hu Pi badmouth him to his mother that he's stealing things from their home when actually Hu Pi did it and our MC still able to play with him again. How he accidently eavesdropping his relatives secret but never tell anyone about it and able to act as if he didn't hear anything. This is why he can getting closer to ML, because although ML is nice to him he sure has some attitude that I can't stand it ಠ⁠ᴥ⁠ಠ but MC can, he's so forgiving (⁠◕⁠દ⁠◕⁠)

And although author try to make MC forgetting the past realistically by let him also forget his nearly drowning past. I'm still not convinced ¯⁠⁠_⁠ (⁠ツ⁠) ⁠_⁠/⁠¯ but the little guy went through parents divorced, change hometown, indulge in intensive learning state because of his mother's pressure and he's 11 at the time (⁠ ⁠≧⁠Д⁠≦⁠)

Cheng Yu, on the other hand kind of a spoiled brat. But it's ok, still tolerable I love his inner monologue because of his overthinking since young.


Their romance is cute but when they're happy I always remember MC family's situation and I feel anxious (⁠´⁠ ⁠.⁠ ⁠.̫⁠ ⁠.⁠ ⁠`⁠) <<less

I've read this novel before, but didn't finish it because I couldn't take the pain... of MTLing anymore. Anyway, I stumbled upon this novel again while browsing for something to read, and figured why not give it a review.

Though MTL was confusing and headache-inducing, I still found the novel to be cute, funny, and fluffy. It's a pity this was dropped (I guess, since last update was in 2021). Not to mention (almost) every chapter was f#cking divided into parts. Really annoying.

Anyway before I turn this into a rant, the... more>> novel is still overall good. If someone picks this up (which I hope), I would definitely read this again. Because I honestly wanna read this novel again for the fluff. <<less

Certainly a relaxed schoolf life/slice of life read.

I haven't completed this yet but I think I'll try to finish this in the future. So far, the story is smooth sailing and, both MC and ML are likeable characters. The pacing of the story is ok and overall, the story itself is light.

I powered through the MTL in one sitting because this CP is so cute! LOL really fresh and funny in their own way. I haven't felt this for a danmei for a while now but it's really sad that there aren't enough side stories and extras!
