Give Me A Hug


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

Xie Jiaran deals with mild skin hunger syndrome, however, he also has severe mysophobia, to the extent that he even considers whether he has wet wipes on him before shaking hands with others.

Thus, whenever his skin hunger happens to break out, he can only resort to sleep to numb himself. Fortunately, the symptoms are relatively mild to be considered painful.

However, all of this was mercilessly disrupted after Liang Sunian moved into the dormitory.

To his surprise, he actually showed no resistance to this person’s closeness. Even as Liang Sunian stood off the court, lifting the hem of his shirt to drink water after playing basketball, an irresistible urge to be tightly held in his arms surged within him.

As the sleep therapy failed, his skin hunger syndrome worsened.


One late night, Liang Sunian, who was suffering from insomnia due to the heat, got up shirtless and went to cool off on the balcony. He appeared bewildered as he stared at Xie Jiaran.

“What?” Liang Sunian felt he was hallucinating due to the heat getting to his head.

How could his typically aloof roommate, even while casting such a glance that seemed like granting a favor, say such words to him?

Xie Jiaran fell silent for a moment. He repeated the previous words in his usual cold tone, trying to stay composed yet inevitably conveying a hint of resignation:

“Liang Sunian, could you please hold me for a while?”

The story is really sweet and fluffy. The MC is a cute and cold guy. He has mysophobia so he can't get close to other people. Unfortunately the MC also has skin hunger and ML is his only cure. He just wants a hug from ML <3

Cute, fluff, no angst. Quick light reading

MC was cute when he was chasing ML but he felt flat after they moved in together. I like MC's friend more--Lin ShanShan is so cute lol

Honestly, I was delighted with the main couple. Considering the number of chapters, the story was well-developed and not overly exaggerated.

MC has the hunger syndrome on his skin, but at the same time, he suffers from severe misophobia, which requires him to resort to sleep therapy to calm down. However, he discovers that he doesn't feel uncomfortable watching his roommate sweat on the basketball court; on the contrary, he just wants to touch him.

Given that, MC never openly approaches ML, to the point of even avoiding him, which leads to... more>> a misunderstanding. ML thinks that MC dislikes him. Therefore, when MC asks him for a hug, ML is completely surprised and confused.

As the story progresses, we realize that, contrary to the rumors about MC, he is not someone completely cold but rather somewhat shy and eager to be loved. So, it didn't surprise me much that after MC realizes he romantically likes ML, he asks his only friend how to pursue someone.

The narrative focuses on the gradual building of the relationship between MC and ML. The story balances romantic elements well with moments of tension and resolution of minor misunderstandings—seriously, very few.

Although MC has personal and emotional challenges due to his conditions, the plot doesn't solely focus on his struggles but also highlights the overcoming and support from ML—although there's also a bit of selfishness from both, as it all began with MC's syndrome.

Overall, the novel offers a charming experience. Highly recommended if you want to read something short, calm, and very romantic. <<less

Only read until chap 40+ but I'm already glad they're happy together.

I love how the MC's actively doing something to make the ML realize he's inlove with the MC haha. It's sweet and cute.
