The Promise Sealed with Our Lips


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

When we met for the first time in our first year of high school, he saw my contempt, but silently continued to clean;

In our second year, he kneeled in front of me while enduring the ridicule of others, “Can you please beat me up to vent your anger, then forgive me?”

From then on he would calmly fulfill our appointments: that horrible wound in physical education class, his guilt when he wore three layers of pants, the bruised and battered body that presented itself before my eyes, then I carried the trembling him…….

In our third year, we fell out because of the anger from being betrayed – but now that I think about it, how could that have been betrayal, why did he dare to be friends with me? Even though it was because of my rejection that he once again had to endure violence, what hung on his lips were still “I was the one who lied to you, it’s my fault for making you angry.”

Shi Yan couldn’t help but lift his head up and control the heat in his eyes, while his ears were still ringing from He Nuo’s words that were filled with gratitude, “You are the one who treats me the best!”

Really angst. Bitter story first but you'll get the sweetness later. I hate the mc's family especially his dad whom were like beating his last son from his 1st wife and took side also spoilt sons from his 2nd wife. The MC ; He look like an orphan. He was lucky or not? To have Shi Yan the dominatrix took care of him, why do I feel it kind of macoshist story. But not bad.

Two thumbs up for translator's hardwork. Translating is not easy and I only read novel with... more>> good translation b (*_*) d <<less

i love this novel, but it is such a pity that there is currently no new update -.- pleaaaaaase, someone pick this translation up!

about the plot: the ML is kind of a jerk, but at the same time lovable: throughout the book my opinion of him is constantly changing. MC is great: although he had a pitiful childhood, he is strong and capable, knows his own feelings, which simultaneously frightens him (because he doesn't want to get hurt... like AGAIN)

the vol 1 is neither a real BE nor HE,... more>> I think. It's a shitty cliff-hanger, but at the same time you could actually finish the story here- you just won't feel so satisfied though

MC leaves ML to be "free", that's a badass thing to do, if you're in deep love


if you pick this book, the ending of vol1 won't be fluffy, but vol2 is said to be HE. I am currently trying to MTL reading the second book, but MAN I HATE MTL. its very frustrating if you need a great, fluffy and plot-being-totally-satisfactorily-summed-up end like I do. life's hard <<less

Very angsty and melodramatic. I have rarely met someone who suffered from so much pain and abuse during childhood and still behave and think like it is all normal. Is he a candidate for sainthood? His parents certainly deserve an award for child abuse and neglect (and although I can accept that chinese culture is partly to blame, not all their actions are excusable that way). In any case, I cannot tolerate matyrs in real life and I cannot stand them in fiction either lol. Shi Yan's character is consistant... more>> with that of a pampered rich spoiled brat, but the 'human sandbag' and repeated r*pe shows that he is maybe a sad*st or a psycho, or both... which the author did not elaborate on, unfortunately lol.


Little saint Nuo is shown to have a backbone and a fighting spirit towards the end of the novel. Although it comes about only after he was cheated on, and the cheating was so sudden that it felt like a plot device in a cheap telenovela. The cheating came soon after they swore eternal love to each other too lol. Yeah kinda sudden and unbelievable. As for the ending, I like it because it feels realistic and appropriate and still remain hopeful.

This is a very harrowing novel filled with child abuse, bullying, domestic violence, r*pe and severe sickness and disease. I cried so much for our poor lotus. But in the end, our cowering child become a splendorous flower so the end (of vol 1) is pretty gratifying.

If you, like me, also like to see suffering MC thats trodden and kicked and abused by the author, can try Death Scripture. Its a straight wuxia, but MC's wretchedness is good there too.

Wow this novel is so good that I'm cry in the angst part. I know I'm gonna read some tragedy but never thought it will be so many. After reading it from the translator (gives 5 star to translator), I continue try read through mtl-ed. In the volume 2 they say HE so I brave myself to read till the end just in one day, and what do I get is more angst tragedy than in the volume 1.

I really like how the writer make ML and MC progess in... more>> the era where bl still taboo is so realistic that it makes sense. The four star come from the ml, it's just ML is a pain, he give MC hope then crushed it then give hope again and so when MC beat ML in v.2 I'm smiling the whole time.

The writer's kindness also take part in four star, originally I want to give 3 star but the writer make v.3 the real HE into v.2 because the writer know the psychology of the readers.

And So I will spill the beans of some unbearable part

1. The MC family also bully MC. MC dad and step-mom is so unreasonable and his brothers like to give MC a hell time.

2. The ML r*pe MC and MC fail his exam, MC dad beat MC because of it. ml?he's having a good time with his family, he know MC will not report him cause he believe MC.

3. The ML use MC dirty photos to make MC stay cause MC want to break-up.

4. The ML use his 'friend' to make MC not leave him by beating the hell out of MC till MC have trauma and his sickness triggered again.

5. Make MC break-up with him then become the master playboy again. Then MC find out.


The conclusion is this novel the type where ML loves MC very much that he can kills MC for love. As for the ending...

Ah did I tell you it's HE? Well it can be called that. If you don't satisfied with the ending, you can read some fluff in the extras

I'm not good writing review and rarely give comments. But, for this once, I would like to recommend this story on your reading list.

Big thanks to translator for translating it neatly, (and for finishing those bunch of last chapters in a couple days) .

I MTL-ed because I thought the story has a lot of promise. The MC was really likeable, despite his circumstances, he never hates or harbors grudges. But what I really like about him was that he has a bottom limit and doesn't let himself get bullied easily. He can stand up for himself whenever necessary.

... more>>

Especially when the ML cheated on him, he wasn't swayed with whatever bullsh*t explanation the ML did, and prepared to leave him even though as far as I can tell, the ML was the only light in his life.


The ML was really unlikeable. He was the reason I rated this 4 stars. Heck, I wanna rate it lower because of him but I like the MC. He was an arrogant, immature, and self-entitled jerk. I think he subconsciously believes that no matter what he did, the MC will forgive him if he showed him a little bit goodness.

Overall, I probably will read this again after it got translated. The MTL was really hard to understand. <<less

I'm pretty much satisfied with the part upto where the translations are done, hence the 5 stars here. The translations are beautiful, and I feel deeply for He Nuo. I pity him and sympathize with him and at the same time admire his strength. I'm very much satisfied with the ending of volume 1. Anyway, I was previously itching to read the rest, so I continued with google translate and completed reading it, now I regret it big time. It's been a year, and I'm still traumatized by it, even... more>> though it's a happy ending. Nothing exceptionally bad or brutal happening, but I ache deeply at each of He Nuo's pain. I won't reveal anything else though. I think he's the fictional character that I've ever felt most deeply for. <<less

omg thank you translators so much for picking up volume 2! I have finished the first volume weeks ago and still come back to reread it because I’m a big sucker for angst and I really really love the improvements in their relationship as well as the personality of our MC, which has built up and made him to be a stronger and better person through all the hardships in his life.

This novel is one of the best reads I had. I’m truly not into angst and I hate angst stories but sometimes I’m wondering how angst stories felt like and I tried reading one and it was quite good so I tried reading again for the second time and this was it.

At first, I an very pained for all the sufferings the MC had, it was very cruel. The pain he suffers is realistic that it also pains me while reading that I wasn’t aware I’m crying my eyes out.... more>> There are some bitter moments, sweet moments, and a combination of every feelings you could imagine there is.

It’s such a pity that there are still no translation updates. But this book is more than worth reading. <<less

This was soo good and the angst is real here, people!!! The ML really makes me want to cry but I like the character growth he has and how he stands up for himself.

BTW, does anyone have a link to the raws for volume 2? At this point, I am even ready to read sub-par translations just so I know how it ends. I hope someone will help me out!! :D
