No One Saved Me

“Nobody’s going to buy me emeralds. Nobody’s going to give me babies. Nobody’s going to save my life.”

—Lawrence Block, “Eight Million Ways to Die”

I could finally be liberated.


It had been more than a decade since Shi Wen, an alpha who became an omega for the man he loved, had been suffering in the quagmire of the world and his partner’s indifference and disgust. As he was dragged into the darkness of death, he dialed his partner’s number. “I don’t regret it.” But all he got in response was the hung-up tone.

No one saved him.


Shang Yu indifferently hung up the call. Anyway, he would see him soon after that person’s gland removal surgery.

He never thought that that would be the last.

To be honest, I want to experience what MC experience. I mean, if I would love someone to the point of being suicidal, I would want to also suicide and make the other person shock or regret. I kinda have like a coward (good?) Personality like MC who would suffer in love but will never reitaliate so I will just let them regret by my death. I know it's bad but sometimes, I have those kind of thoughts but now, I'm single and I think I would never do that... more>> to myself if I fail in love someday. I learned to love myself and I would never sacrifice my happiness over a person who doesn't know how to value me. Anyway, this book is good. Especially coz I needed a book to make me cry. <<less

I cried for the MC. He was too blind in love.

They could've resolved everything if they only communicated but the ML was too s*upid to insinuate it.

The extras didn't help cause my anger for the ML just increased tenfold.

I feel so depressed.

Man... That hurt. Like a lot. This is the first time I've cried while reading a novel in a long time. The MC was hoping for someone to save him. Yet no matter how hard he begged, no matter how hard he tried, no matter how long he waited, no one came. No one saved him.

Would I reread? Yes.

Would I recommend? Yes.

Not as satisfying as expected. The Alpha wasn't a huge scum imo. He was a pretty decent guy considering what he thought were the circumstances of their bonding. ... more>>

The whole drama is due to a misundertanding, the alpha was freaking out after waking up and discovering he had marked someone, so naturally he thought the person he marked was the one that set him up. Which of course wasn't so, his partner only weakly denied it once and they never actually talked about that huge issue later on. The alpha took responsability, however he was cold to his partner, believing he had conspired to get him. His reaction isn't surprising, he had a boyfriend at the time and wasn't specially close to the ML, it was a shock for him.


Also, regarding the partner's efforts... No matter how much someone likes you and what they do in order to chase you, you are in no way obliged to like them back.

The surgery was a mistake, no one should have to change themselves, even their gender, just so the person they like might possibly accept them..


So, tbh I feel the characters were just set up by the author with several misundertandings and lack of communication.

For example, one main reason the alpha wanted his partner to have his artificial gland removed was because he felt that his original alpha scent was much nicer, but he never told him so

. So, in the end I feel that they were never a hopeless couple, just that the author wished for their doom. <<less

This is personally one hell of a satisfying sadomasochism short novel largely about how a scum gong was being indifferent to his partner's state, his devastating shock when he learned about his partner's---

... more>>



--- and how he desperately tried to endure the calamitous pain, regret, and sorrow.

In the first chapter,


it's about the shou's point of view until the moment he committed suicide.


Then, most of the main story's chapters are from the scum gong's perspective.

Reading it can possibly make you cry (in my case, I ugly cried until snot was all over my face) as you feel bad for the shou while also having dark satisfaction as the scum gong suffer endless pain.

I love it. <<less

Had to put a review on this. I really like it, its nice, short, simple and tragic.

I actually felt bad for ML in the end because he ended up grieving and suffering up till his death. The ML isn't really a scum compared to other male leads in other novels but he still wasn't a good person. No matter how much he hated MC, he shouldn't have left a marked omega isolated by himself for 10 years- with very few visitations in between.

And MC....I feel really bad for him. Being... more>> hated by literally everyone definitely destroyed his self-worth and self-esteem. I wished they had communicated clearly but with ML being so stubborn and disdainful of MC, and MC not headstrong enough or brave enough to fully explain the misunderstanding, ig theres like no hope. I understand him not telling ML about his problems after being brushed off so many times and hated at. They (not just ML literally everyone) literally gave him no chances of explaining anything : (

Im not a big fan of people that only realizes what they had after losing cuz irl theres no second chance, like shouldve thought it through beforehand.

But the way author wrote ML guilt and regret made me sad. ML went through the 5 stages of grief and developed insomnia along with other mental illness. It got to the point where I wish theres a next life for both of them, where they can live happily together- since MC really loved ML and ML really was remorseful of his actions (MC definitely deserves someone better but alas he really stayed loyal to this jerk) <<less

The angst in this was really good. Shi Wen (MC) had fallen in love with Shang Yu (ML) at first sight and even though they were both Alphas and thus 'incompatible' in the traditional sense, SW was still determined as ever to pursue SY. And because of an incident that led to a misunderstanding and subsequently the rejection of SW by not only SY but the rest of society for a decade, it was inevitable that SW fell into a major depression. This, in addition to his health complications, caused... more>> him to wither over the years. Even though SY ignored and disdained him, making it known to him and everyone else that he was just 'that person', SW still loved him. It was heartbreaking.

I liked that this was a BE because SY really did deserve to suffer the pain and regret of treating SW in such a way for the rest of his life. He deserved to miss SW with no hope of ever seeing him again, with no hope of ever making things right between them again. It was only right that there was nothing else he could do but atone for his mistakes. But also, SW deserved so much better - to be loved and cherished. He shouldn't have clung onto SY who never took the initiative to even treat him like a decent person. SY treated him so coldly until his last breath, and it was just so sad that he couldn't realise that he deserved better for HIMSELF, and not for SY. They were both imperfect characters who made their own choices and it was no surprise that their relationship was a tragedy. <<less

This is the kind of story one would like to read to stimulate their tear ducts, or to feel something, even if that 'something' is actually just heart wrenching pain.

The plot..... Has quite a few holes, but I gave it a five star rating because I could find complex characterisation peeking through the haze of clichés and tropes (that I do not dislike in the first place).

Personally, I'd never understood why a person stalking and annoying another person garnered so much love and sympathy from others after packaging everything as... more>> 'unrequited, pitiful love' and why people called the person who did not 'melt' or return those feelings 'heartless', 'cold' or evil. So I felt pleasantly surprised when I found that the author did not try to gloss over or package mc's actions as something valid or healthy. MC made his own choices, and there's no way to condemn him without becoming a hypocrite. He suffered and he's pitiful, but the author doesn't take sides in this one.

The ML, is a scum, but not a typical one. He did care for MC, he just didn't realise it. People annoyed at the fact that he didn't just realise that he liked MC till mc's death forget that emotions are not something you can just understand. Everybody has feelings they cannot untangle within their hearts, and so does ML. That makes him more human. That aside, he's still as unlikeable as any typical cold indifferent negative EQ gong found in most BL novels. He suffers a lot too, and I'm glad that he doesn't get something like a second chance.

I love second chances but most people who get them don't really deserve it. A shoutout to the author for sticking with the original idea and not giving into the desperate pleas of their ailing and wailing fans. <<less

Absolutely loved it. It's such a refreshing read from those annoying dog blood novels who give scum gongs a "redemption arc" (that they don't even deserve!!).

I'm both a big fan of angst and short stories, so this was most definitely one of the most delightful reads I have read in months.

MC is not without faults, and ML is not completely at fault. Though, I do think ML went too far, he gets punished with the guilt so it's fair.

10/10 would recommend if you like a novel about a scum gong... more>> that regrets his actions and doesn't get a redemption arc. Satisfying BE. <<less

I wish MC never ever cross path with ML or has feeling for ML. He loved too much that he forget to love himself.

The only thing I blame ML was he never give change of proper talk. Typical domineering male god, execute everything based on his believe. Yes, feeling can't be forced, ML has no responsibility to return MC's feeling but to no avail he never give MC a chance to talk. He selfishly thought he is a victim so it was justiceable for him act brazenly neither giving deep... more>> thought that his action only hurt MC psychology and mentally.

Its so hurt. ML know what would happen if marked omega not close to his marked alpha. What is more for someone with planted omega's gland. They would only suffer more. <<less

The story is well made and it is full of emotions. This was definitely one of the best angst BL novel I've read. It is kinda same with the novel called "Muted"

MC/shou - Shi Wen (Former alpha/Artificial omega)

ML/gong - Shang Yu (Alpha)

  • The setting of a story is in a ABO set up. They are living in the hightech era.
... more>>

ML was drugged during the graduation party by an unknown omega. MC saw it and intimidated the omega with his alpha pheromones (at this time he has implanted himself an artificial gland for omega). ML has lost his rationality and bit the MC. When the ML woke up he blamed MC for the incident. MC's family cut ties with him and he had lost everything. Since then, MC lived with the ML for ten years, enduring ML's coldness and indifference to him. He has done everything he could do just to please the ML but to no avail, ML is still not moved.

MC actually has another identity of himself as 'Jiang Yu' and works at the company of ML. Jiang Yu's role in the company is big and is one of the important figure. ML thought that if only that incident did not happen, he'd have someone like Jiang Yu as his ideal partner. But in fact, Jiang Yu is the MC. (Jiang Yu always wore a mask, and only his gentle eyes could be seen)

We don't know how much MC endured, but we all know that he had enough of it. He wanted to break himself free from this torment.

When ML finally knew the real culprit of the incident. He was in a panic because he thinks that MC does not deserve the pain he gave to him. ML is a scum, but not totally irredeemable. He knew that he has to make up for it, but it was too late.

MC's last word at the phone call for ML was, "I do not regret it."

ML's perspective was shown after the MC passed away. It was so sad, but the pain he is suffering from is all what he deserved. It is revealed that ML was initially the first to be attracted to MC's pheromones.

I absolutely loved it. I was crying throughout but I wouldn't have changed any of it. I loved how the MC loved the ML unconditionally and didn't regret even at the end. I loved how much the ML regretted everything.

I also think the extras were really well written.

... more>>

The 'What if' extra had me a bit annoyed at first because I thought it would be the ML having the chance to redo it all over again but I was pleasantly surprised- it was just him witnessing a scene from the past.


If I had to criticise something, it would be that I would have really liked to see the MC's family reaction to his death. It would have probably been indifference and disdain (which would have angered me), but I would have liked to read it, nonetheless. <<less

Depression in a nutshell. Anyways, ML got what he deserved. I just wish that MC got a happier ending. He truly was such a pure human being that died from the filth of society and the ML.

Dude, the ML is that type who rushes to conclusions, who also have communication issues why can't you tell him directly that you love his scent instead of saying he smells cheap (he didn't tell him its because of the implant thingy), dü[email protected]

aren't you a super rich guy??? Why can't you find out who drugged you that night instead of focusing your anger and needs to a guy who's just there when it happened.

Seriously, the story and angst is good amount (I'm a sucker for it). But that Rich CEO Business Tycoon/I'malsoan a**holewhosehigherthanyou type of guy pisses me off.

... more>> Sorry, I can't help rambling. Really sorry.

Anyways, overall the story plot is very good (love the angst), kudos to author and translator, we won't be here if it weren't because of them.

Lots of love 🥲 <<less

I've been loving to read these type of story for so long. Finally translator found this one and translate it, otherwise I would die unsatisfactory! It's not that good of an ending because you know at least give the shou a tiny of light candy would have been good, but this author just completely make the shou so miserable until death. Even the gong is also miserable until death and even in his last fantasy extra he's still suffering omg. I still love it tho, short but amazing work. All... more>> love doesn't have to end being returned, and sometimes indifference leads to regrets. So make sure to treasure everything you have right now because no one will stay with you forever even through all those pain. For me personally, I won't stay with this gong for even a second :) <<less

First of all thanku to the author as well the translators for bringing us this masterpiece.
... more>>

I don't actually read tragedy genre not 'cause I don't like it it's 'cause I can't handle my tears they keep falling.

I really liked the novel, but will not be able to, and will not read it again, I might have vague dreams for some days regarding this one.

I liked the character of shi wen.

He saw things clearly, he knew their relationship could not go on. So he chose to end it by ending himself.

I think he would not have opted suicide if he would have someone there for him, his family or anyone. Then we would have gave up their relationship and lived on.

He chose suicide 'cause there was no reason for him to live, no person to tell him that "I got ur back". The reason he kept on going was the gong's mark.

Hhhhh! Anyway I cried a lot, tears were streaming down my face unconsciously.

I would definitely recommend it to all who could handle tears, heartache and pain well.

Almost everything was a blur while reading this - not because it was 5am and I just woke up when I suddenly had the courage to finally read this - but because my tear ducts were broken throughout the entire novel. My tears kept on flowing and falling, my lips and chin were quivering and my brows hurt from always furrowing.

You know what hurts the most? The both of them didn't deserve the pain at all🙂 Yes, including the ML. He wasn't the scum I was expecting him to be.... more>> If he was then I wouldn't be bawling my eyeballs out early in the morning. MC suffered 10 years and ML suffered 20 years or so. For those who said the ML deserved it, I just wanna laugh at all of your faces. Pretty sure you haven't read the 188 boys collection yet, or 10 years (yes that 10 years) ? How about The Gaze at the Scenes of Debauchery? Hua Hua You Long?

Sigh. Anyway, I like how the author didn't include a 2nd chance in the novel. It was... refreshing. After I've been fed a lot of redemption arcs from SQC's works (don't get me wrong I love them all!) specially after just finishing his Alpha Predator I realized I needed something new. Then here I am typing here while my eyes are still puffy.

Sorry this isn't a review you were hoping for but just some words and feelings towards the novel that I need to let out. It was a good way to clean my tear ducts though. But yeah, I really recommend this novel to all who loves dog blooded novels like myself here. It's only 9 chapters + 3 extras so give it a go. And bawl🙂🙃 <<less

Sometimes I hate the wife chasing genre because I feel like the ML stays shitty and selfish but gets a little sad so the MC feels sorry for them and gives them everything they want.

This novel is not like that. I am deeply and darkly satisfied with the way this ML suffers and never gets what he wants.

the misunderstanding is too much, The ML came to a realisation a bit too late. He is too late😭

And the cliffhanger at the end killed me.


Thank you translator sama for this translation.

I was listening to olivia rodrigo's happier while reading this, the emotions hit me like a truck and it made me cried my eyes out. Would not recommend doing this, if your emotions are not stable like me. It really took me a long time to recover from this. <<less
