Here's a warning: you will read this story at least once.

When I finished the first time I reread the whole thing immediately! Then everything clicked like pieces in a puzzle which made it all the more poignant and bittersweet.

The pace is fast for my usual novel-length taste yet the author executed this story well. I like how the POV was of the alpha MC, just perfect for a short story like this.

For those who want a story explanation:

Spoiler

MC - alpha male, wakes from coma after 12 years

ML - alpha male, ex-friend of MC, has kids with omega male wife (OW), got married to OW while MC in coma

12 years ago, MC and OW swapped souls during an accident. When MC (in OW's body) recovered, he realized what happened so he took care of his original (alpha) body in the hospital SVIP ward. OW soul was in MC's alpha body comatosed.

Present time, MC (in OW body) gives birth to 3rd child but is in a precarious state which triggers another soul swap. So now he's back to his original body. At first he is unaware but 15 days later he remembers the past 12 years living in OW body. He's devastated because he returned to his original body when he had everything: wealth, children and the man of his dreams.

Stuff happens and MC ends up baby sitting ML's children.

Meanwhile, ML is depressed because they're gonna pull the plug off his wife. ML explains to MC that he loves his "wife" so much, omega or not, because they went through thick and thin together. This revelation hits MC pretty hard; the reason why he hasn't told ML that he's the soul inside OW all this time is because when they were young (maybe high school), he confessed his love to ML and got rejected because alpha/alpha. And now ML is telling him he doesn't care about gender??

After some MC inevitable slip ups, ML finally realizes that his wife is still with him all this time. They reconcile. The end.

tl;dr At the end we find out that our alpha MC's soul has been living in the body of the ML's (omega) wife for the past 12 years. MC's real (alpha) body was in a coma up until the beginning of the story.

Let me just say: Read to the last chapter before you settle on your opinion of this story. I promise, it's worth it.

When I began reading this story, I thought, both the writing and translation is good. But content-wise, I don't know if I'm going to enjoy this....

By the middle of the story, I decided, after I get to the last chapter, I'll leave a 5 star rating and never touch this story again. The writing is worth that rating, but the story itself is probably just not... more>> my cup of tea.

By the end, I was just- Ok. It hasn't been 10 minutes yet but I'm going back on my declaration and I'm absolutely rereading it right this second.

So yeah. Like me, you might find yourself changing your opinion on the story after the last chapter.

Can't say anything else without spoiling things. <<less

That was a beautiful story. I teared up. Usually when it comes to good short stories I tend to want more but this one the length was just perfect. I don't think we needed more.

Well, wow this is so bittersweet. The translator's song recommendation: "Dave Thomas - I can't make you love me, " is just perfect for the mood. Though, I promise it's a HE! It got a nice little twist, and the reference to the original "The little mermaid" was brilliant. I always cried for the mermaid as a child, and never understood why HC Andersson had to be so masochistic with his stories! Maybe, he wanted aspects of it to be based on his life? Either way, it fit, and ties... more>> perfectly to this short-story! I don't know about the ratings, but I enjoyed the short story immensely. <<less

This is one of those novels that you have to read a second time to truly feel the magic and awe. Even though this novel is so short (just 7 chapters), the feelings are very deep and it does have a proper and wholesome conclusion.

The title "I am an Alpha" is actually a small phrase that part of a more meaningful sentence that is told in the novel. Throughout the novel, the MC reiterates this phrase and it's not until the very end that he says the rest and fully... more>> reveals what is truly in his heart.

The author uses the ABO dynamic in such a unique way (although you won't realize this until the very end!). There's no stockholm syndrome sh*t or estrus cycles or controlling pheromones happening. Out of all the ABO novels I've read, this is the only one where the romantic feelings are very sincere and genuine. I feel like with most ABO novels, the occuring "romance" is the result of being dominated by their biological instincts and not their actual emotions. <<less

Damn, this one is just unique u kno. At first I was displaying visible confusion. Even after I finished the novel I was still confused. [Hey don't blame me, my three brain cells powered by caffeine can't handle shit.] And then while I was staring off into the 11:00 darkness it all just hit me like an over speeding truck. What's written in the novel is just the tip of the iceberg, the rest just comes once you think of the bigger picture. It's quite beautiful.

I feel the need to repeat other reviewer's praises. It's beautifully well-done. Good writing with mysterious plot & enough foreshadowing. First chapter can be confusing but keep pushing through, at the end it'll be very fulfilling. I love this author's works. Definitely recommended, but it seems only this one was translated. She writes many stories with ABO + marriage life + bizarre plots that makes me learn a bit about what insecurities can do to people.

So this short story has that 3 elements. It's hard to describe without spoiling it. It's about (spoiler tagged because maybe this exact wording might makes you realize too fast?)
Spoiler

an Alpha who woke up from a 12 years coma after a car accident. At the same time, President Shen's Omega wife died of childbirth.

Then the story goes on from there.

And because I often care too much about cannon fodders
Spoiler

I have to think the most pitiful of them all was the real Omega who was body-snatched 😂

I was in a book-hangover stupor and suddenly realized that ML found out MC's identity (soul-wise, that is) because he accidentally, or carelessly, exposed himself in panic when they hurried to get to the hospital.
Spoiler

I mean, no one told MC about the peanut allergy and he happen to kniw the allergy med hasnt expired yet... ???? Did I cracked the code? Hi, NSA. I will be waiting for you call for the interview.

But for what I don't really like was

Spoiler

I don't like character who indecisive and gave up easily (like MC), eg he love the ML and he love his family, but decide to stay as a stranger because he's an alpha. He should trust his man more, he should trust their love more, why assume, fight for it, don't just give up without trying. Tell ML the truth. But no, he leave ML suffering and their children miserable like that, then cry alone in the dark. Just like little mermaid, assume everything, and ran away.

Other than that, its still good. <<less

At first, I was confused - what's the connection between these characters? Synopsis did not help at all - the sentences seem to be disjoint with each other. But then the story started to flow together, and somehow along the way, I already expected that surprise near the end. Translation quality is okay. Story execution is good enough, though I would have expected a better staging since this is a short story, and a short story's selling point is the impact that it gives to their readers. Overall rating: 4.0.

Okay, I don't like short novels, but it was cheer me up. This is fluffy and sad. With happy end, of course. Anyway this is simple to read and good idea in a plot. It's just relaxing story about daily life in ABO. Novel is touching and probably very emotional people will be cry. This is good I think. But all will be good.I happy for them. I enjoyed this short story.

Beautiful short story, very impactful for its length. No info-dumps, the mystery is for you to discover.

The ending is well foreshadowed throughout, worth rereading.

One of the best novel that I have read. I was kinda confused and not satisfied at first because it keeps telling about life events, like it's too simple until I got to the point of the story that I suddenly feel like crying because its too heart-wrenching, I already viewed/guessed that the story will have that kind of twist but I never expect that it will bring me to tears. Like seriously. Highly recommended. Guys read it.?

Argh love the angst and the happy end. Almost wish that this was a longer one. The details are hinted throughout the book and it really comes full circle. This is one of the more unique plots in the abo genre.

THIS. IS. GOLD.

It is short but well-written. I am so happy that I had found this treasure. This is the kind of story that can satisfy you but can also make you wish that it can be a little bit longer.

The description can be a little bland but the whole story makes up for it.

Reading this made me feel comfortable, a little angsty, and definitely satisfied.

5 Stars. Highly recommended. ❤
