Mo Bao Fei Bao has always been weak at expressing the emotions between her characters (or having them exchange enough words throughout the story to form a simple conversation), so this kind of angsty yet heart-warming separation story is more than a little beyond her means. There is nothing distinct about the characters, aside from the fact that they were and still are very much in love, but after their sudden break off and long separation, have very little to say. While the story is very typical and could’ve evoked... more>> similar feelings to other stories in the genre, it was watered down by the passive personalities of both characters, their stiff and shallow interactions, and the inability of the author to fully exploit the scenario. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of the author this story isn’t really worth reading, and even then it’s somewhat of a let-down. You’d be better off trying Silent Separation and The Lone Star In My Constellation which both share a similar scenario, or the works of Jiu Lu Fei Xiang (i.e. Mulberry Song) for a similar type of feeling. 3/10 <<less

I finished it in one setting. This novel has refreshed my interest in finishing the author's other books. It's so nice not reading about angry, petty people face slapping each other. This novel was gentle and sweet. If it got a low rating, I would assume it's because of the ongoing misunderstanding which is frustrating but it's important for the development of their current relationship. I think if I could change anything about the novel, it would be to make it longer! I think it's worth a read. It... more>> wasn't on my radar because of the ratings and reviews but I'm glad I gave it a chance because of the author and the summary. <<less

To me, this is a really sweet story.

The reason of how they 'broke up', how they've lost contact, she, in the novel has never told him. At first, I wanted to see that she'll someday, somehow explain the reason for it.

* It's really touching how he consider the fact that they are not broken up, since they never had such a conversation between them.*

... more>> But after finishing the novel, the fact that such a important piece of their past was never mentioned makes me feel profound.

She never spoke of it, he never asked why. It struck a chord in me. Had she said, had he asked, what would have happened then? How would they have to react?

Afterall, for her, what could she have done about the fact that her parents stopped her from contacting him. By explaining about it, would it feel like she had any complaints towards her parents about it then? What would have been the point of it?

Without mentioning this in the novel, although it makes it feel that it lacks such an important part of the story, it leaves the novel free of angst. While many would prefer it to be mentioned, the lack of it makes the novel seems like a gem to me.

In the end, it makes me feel like they have considered the reason for their lost of contact, although important, it is now just a piece of their past. Afterall, bringing it up may just cause sorrow when the fact that they are fortunate enough to be able to reunite is such a beautiful thing.

Perhaps, they will speak of it one day.

Although there's just 15 chapters. To me, had the plot been written differently, it might not have given me such pleasures simply just to read it again and again. Many thanks to the author for the novel and the translator for the translation. <<less

Short, sweet and fluffy.

If you are like me and like to know everything about a couple's past and relationship then you will be disappoint like I was. Hence, the 1 star docked.

Why did he never ask why she stopped all contact!? Give me that scene!


It's a short story so its best to think that we are getting just a short glipse into their relationship with none of the drama and heartache.

A cliche of reunited love story, told in Mo Bao Fei Bao unique storytelling nuances. Two lovers met in a game, subsequently separated because of some minor misunderstanding, and years later meet again. No anguish or particularly vicious love rival here, so “Still not wanting to forget” is very suitable for you if you are looking for a heartwarming love story without too much drama.
Still, it is not one of Mo Bao Fei Bao's best work, IMO. Characters are not so well-developed, particularly the female MC that mostly takes... more>> on passive role. <<less

Extremely short, sweet, relatable fluff. However, it is too short- almost like a preview of a story instead of the actual.

I still cannot get over how they never brought up the subject of why they 'broke up' at the first place which is an extremely important topic for reconciling their feelings. Maybe the author is trying to illustrate that it didn't matter to the male lead why it happened since he still loved her regardless.

There is still a lot of content for development- heart-to-heart talk, male lead reading the novel... more>> the female lead wrote about them with a fictitious ending, etc. The story ended way too abruptly. <<less

A short and sweet love story between two people that was brought back together again after so many years.

In the beginning I was iffy about this story but after 2 chapters or so I began to find that it’s pretty cute. It’s a good quick read.

Short & sweet. 4/5 for the abrupt ending. (Cheng Chen deserved to know why Si Nian ended all contact back when they were teenagers. I can appreciate people saying very little and conveying everything else through their actions but healthy relationships are built on openness too, not only trust.)

All I can say is, this could've been better like tear jerking. But nope, author decided to rush it out. No feelings and all that.

This is so good, indeed a Mo Bao Fei Bao novel. I just hope that this is her typical length novel, I would love to see more of their relationship after they got back together. And more moments of Shen Zhe with the CP. Still a good one, I have this on my undecided list and regretted I did not pick it up sooner.

I just finished reading this a minute ago. Here to find maybe they have an epilogue, sadly it doesn't 😭 I wish the author at least give us a wedding to 'watch' as they got separated for 10years. Still I love the ending, but not quit satisfied. ❤️ Si Nian didn't even clear the misunderstanding that she 'dumped' him... aiyoo

I gave this a 5stars for both of them not having an exbf/gf even after so many years and the fact that the ML didn't resented her and demanding explanation at... more>> their first meeting. Love that they still got the chance for each other. <<less

Seems veery rushed. The development is wEirD and everything ended right when I was about to give up on the story and move on to another lol. There are lots of things left unaddressed at the end and the way they ended up having s*x was weird as heck too, gave me a very rushed feeling like it was just something of convenience and not actually love.

I feel like this is perfect for wasting your time, but if you want something better look elsewhere please..

Very sweet and light hearted read. Its about two high school sweethearts that reunited and still has feelings for each other. I love how it really portray the awkwardness at first of not knowing if the person still likes you or not also the awkwardness of meeting again.

Another novel in which the male lead managed to explain his suffering to the female lead and ensemble cast, but the female lead never gets to tell the male lead her side of the story. Sigh. It's not enough for female lead to just think it, I want it said out loud so the male lead can get over himself! He's not the only one with feelings.

I thought the first half was better than the second. The male lead irresponsibly and irrationally demanding that the female lead go to the... more>> filming location because he was jealous (not mentioning that the female star of the movie was pretty obviously flirting with him) rankled and he would have been a lot more mature (he's 30 for goodness' sake!) in my eyes if he had refrained from that.

Read the first half for the interactions, read the second half for the closure. <<less

What I love about this story is how short and to the point it is (no messy love triangles). It is definitely refreshing to take a break from all the heavy love drama that you can find in this type of novel. Typically, with a simple heart-warming plot I would rate at least a 3 if not more. But in this particular case, I found the lack of initiative on either party lacking. To me this just seemed like a very forced union ... more>>

they both like each other but neither makes much of an indication of their feelings to the other in any way

. Granted, it was very obvious from the onset that the romance/story will be between the FL and ML, but the lack of communication and resolution as to what happened in the past just leaves me hanging. And with this plot hole, I felt that there was a serious lack of progression/development in the romance and characterization of the two main leads.

Then again, I know there are main couples that end up together even with minimal communication without it seeming really forced, however this particular paring just didn't work for me because the story just wasn't as well fleshed out. It felt as if the author had intended the story to be maybe 25+ chapters longer but then got tired of it and forcefully ended it at 15 chapters leaving us readers wondering what really happened? <<less

This novel is so cute. There's no third-person-liked-the-MC character. The story flowed how you want it to be. There's no drama which I like as of the moment. All you get is the sweet and very fresh feeling of love.

if you're fed up reading super dramatic novel. I highly recommend this novel to you.

... more>>

I just wished that the author includes a part when the MC told the reason why the communication between her and the ML stop.

I even wonder why the ML didnt even asked about it.

After not seeing each other for such a long time, the both of them acted like theres no misunderstanding happened between them like as if MC not contacting ML suddenly didnt happened.


still, nice novel. 💕

Wish it was longer. Story seems to end suddenly. Still liked it. It is about a live story and second chances. No angst. Happy ending.
