“I have hands, but I don’t know how to touch you.”

Love after marriage. Unidirectional unrequited love. Shou is indifferent on the surface, but deep inside is actually a little silly. There’s no abuse, short story.

Watch out for a cute surprise: Shou’s still on a stage where he loves to suck his lip when he sleeps. When he goes to bed, he’s like a little baby sucking a neinei. Shen Zhi is the shou!

Alternative Summary:

Shen Zhi and Xi Yu were tied by a marriage of convenience. Both parties agreed that after getting a certificate, they won’t interfere with each other’s life. However when Xi Yu discovered Shen Zhi’s unusual habit when sleeping he couldn’t stop himself from getting interested in Shen Zhi. With both of their lives slowly integrating, Xi Yu learned that their marriage of convenience actually meant something deeper for Shen Zhi.

I accidentally pressed 2 stars while scrolling so uhh I'm writing this review. [ Okay well so I can change it ]

5/5 for me because:

    1. MC cute and really affectionate
    1. ML is very tolerant and gentle towards MC Fav part of him though is definitely when

      He told MC to be more truthful to him because he believes that a relationship can't last for long if only one side endures everything silently.

    1. Their relationship is pretty healthy and there's 2 sides trying to work with each other
    1. It's so cute but the last extra made me bawl donkeys
Like, it's thiss whole thing really cute and fluffy im gonna gdet diabetes and cry on in my bed alone for a whole night dear lord help I lov

Nice shorty story, very cute indeed, no extra drama, just love after marrige.


the second extra obliterated me, sure way to freaking end the novel realistically but that last letter freaking hurt...

Both of them are beautiful inside out, top to bottom. I really wished them eternal happiness but as other mentioned, the ending is very sobering. Witnessing MC and ML grow and love each other made me feel like every step they take on their path of love bloomed flowers.

But that last letter in the extras really shattered me. Yes, all good things come to an end and when you get old all your regrets come back to haunt you. The author conveyed that so clearly that I sit here; still sniffling like a fool and wishing that every couple in the world that truly loves each other could just live forever. If only all those who deserve love were loved. If only those who hold genuine love for one another would never be separated in life and death. But alas, that’s not how the world works. 。゚ (₌இᆽஇ₌) ゚。


On another note, I really appreciated the translated poems. The one I especially liked was this one:

“I just want to store up enough love,

enough tenderness and slyness,

just in case,

when I wake up, I’d meet you.

I just want to store up enough pride,

enough loneliness and indifference,

just in case,

when I wake up, you’d be gone.”

This fluff will make you cry more than you expect. Also, was expecting the MC to wake up anytime to find that it was all a beautiful dream


Ends on a sobering note that most web novels won’t take you.

Beautiful story. Love this so much.

But I dont understand why would some of the reviews say that the ending was bittersweet or that it was dark. I mean are they immortals? Are they not supposed to die?

Sure it was sad but that ending fitted really well. I mean all of us has to face death one way or another. And I would be sad too if some one close to me died. But I am glad that both of them died of old age and that also a peaceful death.... more>> It was only natural. For me the ending was very well written and beautiful. And I got to see more of the mls love for the MC. This somehow reminded me of Life Senjou no Bokura🥺

Thank you translator for translating this and giving us the chance to read this. The author really did an excellent job. Short but very Good. Would totally recommend this. <<less

I CRY and SMILE SO MUCH! Thank you so much for translating this! At first I thought it was just a light story with some smut but I thought wrong TT It’s cute, sweet, bitter, sad, sexy, and many things at once! I’m so glad I found this novel!

MC is soooooo adorable. He’s indifferent on the outside but sensitive, yet also in some way bold. ML is cold at first, but when he feels it he doesn’t shy away from action.

I don't know if their story will touch your soul, but it did mine. It's a short story with chapter only 2 digit. But it's a lifetime heart full one.🥰🥰🥰

I ReAllY hAtE how the whole story had a wholesome beginning, and even became more wholesome and sweet as the story continues, but then when you reach the end, everything became bittersweet!

That was just so sudden and I was taken aback! Why author?? Why??? 🤧😭😭 Nevertheless, to all new readers who have just come across of this story, especially those who are afraid of bittersweet endings, please don't be bothered by the reviews for now and try seriously reading this disgustingly sweet mini story! When I started reading This book, I've... more>> already read all to the reviews beforehand and was a little wary at first but when I started reading the whole story, I gradually forgot about the reviews saying that the ending made them cry because of the sweetness and the overall plot scenes that made one's stomach tingle with butterflies~ 🤧❤️

It's worth it guys! Definitely highly recommended 👌✨ <<less

I liked this story a lot. At first, I was doubtful since the intro was a lil unappealing but this story is sweet and sweetness.

Shen Zhi, MC, is timid, quiet, and poor. Xi Yu, ML, is domineering, cold hearted, and rich. The plot is straightforward but the writing style makes it. Even though there aren't many chapters, I still felt an emotional connection to the characters and feel the warmth of their relationship. I'm glad I gave it a chance. 💕

MC agreed to marry ML because he had been in love with him since high school. MC had a bad family life so he put on a cold and indifferent shell but inside he is quite innocent and sensitive.

ML married MC for business reasons. However, when he saw MC sucking on his lips while sleeping, ML became curious about him. He also discovered that MC might like him. This led to ML approaching MC and there relationship grew from there.

One word: BEAUTIFUL! *clap* *clap* bravooo!!! ♥ (ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

This is worth reading you guys! Very well written, it makes you smile, giggle, sad, cry... very heart-warming. I love how they treated each other, the love and respect is there. My poor heart *sigh*.

Don't be afraid to read this because of some comments saying the ending was bittersweet, it's the reality of life! ... more>>

But DANG!!! I didn't sign up for the last letter! *wiping tears and snot*

Now who's going to comfort me too?!?!?! My heart still hurting but I'm very satisfied with the ending, it's poignantly beautiful!

‧º· (˚ ˃̣̣̥⌓˂̣̣̥) ‧º·˚

That said, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! <<less

First of all, MC acts cute and innocent which I don’t dislike and fits that context well. Secondly ML is nice to MC and initially ML was cold but later his devotion to MC really calming and what people say, fluffy. I like both of them. Marriage first then love, good trope, like it actually.
Lastly, Thank you, translator, for doing such a wonderful job! ^^

I did not expect this book would be such a sweet read. The start was bit snobbish or poor executed, but by middle, I relished it. The ending is beautiful.

This is such a dear little story. It’s just a sweet story of a marriage of convenience blossoming into requited love. There was just one piece of bittersweet and it was in the very last chapter/extra.

... more>>

The last chapter is a love letter from the gong to the shou after the shou had passed away. It was a beautiful, but heart wrenching letter.


If you want to keep the happy and fluffy feelings that this story brings, don’t read the last chapter/extra. It has nothing to do with the plot. I wish I had been warned about it before reading it. <<less

This story is short and sweet. I wish it was longer, would have love to read more about their daily life. I have mixed feeling about the last letters written by the ML since its so bittersweet. Overall, you definitely won't regret reading this short story.

A very short but sweet reading. It is like one of those slice of life animes you watch after a stressful day and think “that’s the definition of wholesome”.


In a world where the extreme BL gongs bordering yanderes ruled, the MC’s “i-like-that-he-needs-me” kinda egoistic possessiveness was so mild that I cried of happiness. Even his being restrictive at times was measured, and his jealousy was tolerable. Nothing toxic here (by BL standards), just read for fluff.

The ending didn’t make me cry, it wasn’t bittersweet by my definitions either. Pure HE... more>> by my standards. <<less

This is pure romance with a hint of misunderstanding. It could have been a wee bit longer and had more misunderstanding to add to the angst which would have made it PERFECT. The misunderstanding here was too short for the tears to flow (but tears will definitely FLOW hint hint). But it is still a really well written and good romance novel. It's compact, interesting and oh so good. I think what bumped this... more>> novel to a 5.0 is the extra. Just one of the BEST and absolutely perfect extra ever. Like... No comparison! I think everyone is here after that mind blogging extra that just... WOWED US!!

JUST READ IT! It doesn't feel like the super nonsensey fluff novel. You'll be surprised by how good it is 😭💓😭💓😭💓 <<less

Oh my gosh this was so good! So short but went straight to the heart! I even shed a few tears especially at the end. 😭 Both of them started with an unhealthy state of mind, but their love made them whole again. It was so so beautiful, and I really liked the idea of ML writing MC love letters.

A huge thanks to the translator for bringing this gem to the English-speaking community!
