Fangirling Chinese Novels

Really, Really Miss You (很想很想你) – Chapter 44



Oh, Sheng Sheng and Dr. Mo, how I have missed you! Thank you to those who followed along with our little My Sunshine marathon, and thank you to everyone who has been patiently waiting for the translations. I’m so happy to be back in my little happy place with Toupai DaRen.

An interesting place for a meeting… And uh-oh for Sheng Sheng!

Chapter 44 – “Splendid” Rice with Pickled Vegetables and Pork (3)

The day before Wanmei’s anniversary event, she finally handed over the song.

In that moment when she sent off the email, she finally breathed out in relief. Now, what followed would be a long and torturous process. Actually, she very much enjoyed collaborating with people who had similar ideas and interests as her, slowly working together to grind out a song, and then, to watch the song get released… Such a wonderful process.

Perhaps only someone who was doing it purely for interest could relish in this sort of thing.

She reckoned it would be at least several days before she would get an opinion or response, and so she packed up her things and went home. She had not anticipated that she would not even get a chance to sit down at home for very long before her mom sent her off to the grocery store to help out.

Gosh, the grocery store on the weekend was honestly very busy, especially since this one was directly across from a hospital.

She sat at the checkout counter, watching Cousin and Dong Yiru exchange flirting glances, and immediately, she felt as if she had missed out on something. She was about to investigate further when an alert sounded from her mobile phone, indicating that she had a private message in Weibo.

Ling Long Ti Tou? Such a fast response…

Sheng Sheng,

I listened through it once, and I think it has a good feel to it. Of course, I’ll have lots of opinions and suggestions on changes to be made.

Since I’m heading out of country tomorrow to study abroad, I will be very busy for two months and it will be hard for me to connect with you often. To avoid holding up the progress, I was hoping to meet up with you tonight. It will take about half an hour. If we can talk face to face, it will be much more efficient.

Also, I will be paying you the advanced deposit today. You can just send me your account number tonight.

 — Ling Long Ti Tou

Meet-up? Tonight?

For this type of commercial collaboration, if it was convenient, meeting in person would of course be better than communicating through email. Although she had understood early on that she would certainly at least have 3-D world telephone conversations with Ling Long Ti Tou or, if they were in the same city, even have a meet-up with her…

The problem was…


How does she know that I am in the same city as her? But, that was very possible. Ling Long Ti Tou and Toupai were friends, so she she should know some stuff about her?

Gu Sheng tried her best to think in a positive direction.

After all, Ling Long Ti Tou’s reputation in the entertainment circle was very respected, and her character was widely known to be good…

She had not finished battling within herself yet when her private message indicator started flashing again:

I’m at Mo Qingcheng’s hospital right now. You should have been there before?


What was the chance? …

Gu Sheng contemplated, then replied: I’m in the grocery store across from the hospital right now. If it’s convenient for you, we could arrange to meet now. You can tell me where you are and I can go over to find you. Or, we could meet up outside the hospital at the Yon Ho[1]?

Ling Long Ti Tou: You can come here first because I can’t really guarantee if I can get out of here right at this moment. I can chat with you when I have a free moment…

Gu Sheng: Sure. I’ll come find you, then. Tell me which floor you’re on. I will be able to be there in about ten minutes or so.

Ling Long Ti Tou very quickly sent over the floor level she was on.

Gu Sheng immediately told Cousin, “I’m going out right now. I’ll be back in half an hour.” When she finished saying this, she slipped out from under the checkout counter and left.

Cousin bared his teeth threateningly. “Hurry! Your mom has things to do today and can’t take over my shift. I’ll be waiting here for you to come back before I can go have dinner.”

She answered with an “mm” and ran off.

The hospital on the weekend was, as normal, so busy it was scary.

To be honest, she had actually never once come here for Toupai… She exited the elevator on the floor Ling Long Ti Tou had told her and to her surprise, discovered there were numerous pregnant women — young girls, older aunties, etc. — walking back and forth here. She had come to the obstetrics and gynecology department?

Ling Long Ti Tou was here for… a prenatal check-up?

She was embarrassed by this thought and did not continue thinking in that direction.

On the left was the gynecology department while the right was the obstetrics department. And so, she could only stand right there in the middle, holding her mobile phone, ready to send a message. However, before she finished typing, someone tapped her on the shoulder. She was taken aback briefly and then looked back.

A female doctor was smiling at her.

It was that “I know you” type of smile…

“Hi Sheng Sheng.” The female doctor very warmly hugged Gu Sheng’s shoulders. “I’m Ling Long Ti Tou.”

“Hello.” She was shocked once again, this time over the revelation that Ling Long Ti Tou was a doctor. And furthermore, how did she recognize her? Could it be that Toupai told her? …

“Let’s not stand out here. Come with me,” Ling Long Ti Tou smilingly invited her.

She gave an “mm” and said, “I thought you were here as a patient. I didn’t think you’d be a doctor, too.”

No wonder Ling Long Ti Tou had retired so early. She had been popular for so many years, yet this was the very first album she had ever put together. It turns out she also had such a busy career. “Our family has many doctors,” Ling Long Ti Tou laughed. “Your Toupai DaRen is only one of many.”



She carefully dissected and analyzed this statement and then became even more astonished.

Could it be, the two of them were relatives?

That’s impossible, ah! How come Toupai’s friends did not know at all?

Ling Long Ti Tou motioned for her to follow her to the end of the corridor on the gynecology side and into her own examination room. By now, it was nearing the end of clinic hours, there were no patients here. Gu Sheng stepped inside, and then Ling Long Ti Tou continued explaining with a smile, “My cousin-brother[2] and I had a gentleman’s agreement long ago that in the 2-D world, we could not mention that we are sister and brother… Actually, what I’m nervous about is that his crazy fans will somehow try to find him through me. Scary, isn’t it?”

She laughed.

Gu Sheng also laughed.

Definitely needed to be kept a secret. Otherwise, if someone accidentally let the information slip and fans started coming to her door, it would be very frightening…

“But Jue Mei knows I’m his cousin-sister. Didn’t he ever tell you?”

“Nope.” She shook her head. Jue Mei, you big black belly[3]… Not only did you not tell me, you took the opportunity to lead me in the wrong direction… saying stuff like Ling Long Ti Tou had a crush on Toupai… So evil. They are relatives, eh. Relatives, AH…

Gu Sheng suddenly made a mental association with something. “So you asked me to do the song writing because Mo Qingcheng and I are…”

“How’s that possible? I would never fool around with my own album,” Ling Long Ti Tou immediately denied. “This album is very important to me and can be considered a way for me to commemorate my time in this entertainment circle.”

Gu Sheng gave an “mm.”

She understood this feeling.

Ling Long Ti Tou sat down, not continuing with the idle chitchat anymore, and cut straight to the point by starting to discuss the song with her. She was undeniably the strong, dominant female type and had complete control over the flow of the conversation. Gu Sheng also felt very happy. As they chatted more, she became more relaxed and less restrained. In regards to the song, she felt like they were two people who both keenly appreciated each other’s talents finally meeting one another.

“Did you know, I had actually already wanted to arrange to work with you several years ago after listening to a song you wrote,” Ling Long Ti Tou told her with smile, confirming that same sense of finding a bosom music friend. “However, that period was when I was busiest and I didn’t have the time. Luckily, several years later, I have come looking for you and you are still in this entertainment circle.”

“Hmm, back at that time … Back at that time, I still hadn’t really entered the circle yet,” Gu Sheng recalled. “I think, I was just helping out my classmate occasionally and didn’t even know there was a circle that existed specifically to create ancient-style music.”

“That particular instance was an especially neat coincidence. Someone had actually invited me to sing that song of yours.” Ling Long Ti Tou continued recounting, “I listened to the demo of you humming the main melody and thought it sounded very nice. I even thought, ‘This girl is so talented. She can compose and arrange, and even her humming sounds so beautiful.’ ”

“Back then, there was no Luo Tian Yi software[4].” Gu Sheng felt particularly embarrassed about this. “If there was, I would not have hummed it… I would have just input it into the software…”

Ling Long Ti Tou wanted to say something more, but at that moment, the telephone rang. She picked it up, said a couple of “mm-s” into the receiver, and then unexpectedly laughed. “Your girlfriend is here with me. Do you want to come down to see her?”

With that one sentence, she hung up.

Just like that, he was going to come?

She had originally intended to tell him that she was at the hospital after meeting up with Ling Long Ti Tou, and if he had time, they could see each other briefly… Now, it was even simpler. Ling Long Ti Tou had just directly summoned him down…

When Mo Qingcheng stood at the doorway, Gu Sheng was discussing with Ling Long Ti Tou the next step in the plan and arranging when next time to send the song to her after the modifications were made. A light cough was heard from the doorway. Gu Sheng immediately looked back in that direction and then had her breath taken away.

He had already changed back into his street clothes – a white button-up shirt, something he seldom wore, with a pair of light blue jeans. He looked completely like a tall, clean, and handsome student. Clearing his throat again, he stepped into the room, wanting to laugh but also feeling somewhat resigned, and said to Ling Long Ti Tou, “So, you still ended up meeting up with Sheng Sheng before you left the country.”

“Of course.” Ling Long Ti Tou looked him over with a quick glance. “You hid her too well, so I had no choice but to make a move myself.”

Mo Qingcheng walked over and patted Sheng Sheng’s head as he gave a chuckle.

The connotation behind that action was very obvious: My wife is so easily duped. If I had known that in the beginning, I wouldn’t have taken those roundabout tactics with her.

Ling Long Ti Tou cast a glance at her watch and felt that she should go back to her work. After all, she was going to be flying out tomorrow, and there were still some matters that she needed to handover to other people. She gestured for the other two to follow her out. There happened to be a nurse who came over to talk to her, so Gu Sheng and Mo Qingcheng stood off to the side and waited…

And waited…

And waited…

Mo Qingcheng answered a phone call.

One was on the phone, the other was talking to a nurse. Gu Sheng, the only person who was not a staff member there, could only stand in the middle of the other three people and let her eyes wander to the other side of the corridor.

That pregnant woman’s profile looked so familiar…

That person beside her looked even more familiar…

How could it not be familiar? Twenty plus years ago, that person delivered her right here in this very place, you know?…

Gu Sheng’s mother also looked disbelivingly at her. She glanced around at her surroundings… It was right. This was the OB/GYN department. What’s my unmarried daughter doing here? Together with a young man? And with a white-coated female doctor?!

Mom’s eyes speedily turned to Mo Qingcheng, who was standing beside her daughter.

And with perfect timing, he had just finished his phone call. Using the back of his hand, he gently bumped her face. “What’s wrong? Who do you see?”

Gu Sheng could clearly see her mom’s eyes widen. In a tiny voice, she moaned, “My mom…”


Mom, you must keep your thoughts pure…

I only came to OB/GYN to discuss changes to a song arrangement with my boyfriend’s cousin-sister, AAAAH…


[1] 永和豆浆 “Yong He Dou Jiang or “Yong He Soybean Milk.” It goes by the English name Yon Ho. A café style restaurant specializing in breakfast foods and soybean milk.


[2] 堂弟 “tang di.” This relationship implicitly means that Ling Long Ti Tou and Mo Qingcheng’s fathers are brothers, so they are cousins who share the same surname. In Chinese culture, these types of cousins are closer in blood than others, and they are called堂 “tang” siblings. They would address each other as “brother” and “sister.” Ling Long Ti Tou called Mo Qingcheng her “tang di”, which means he is her younger “tang” brother. For this relationship, I’ll use “cousin-brother” and “cousin-sister” to describe it.

[3] 腹黑 Literally means “black belly.” Many of you who read lots of c-novels will be familiar with this term. It is used to describe someone who puts up a good, kind front but inside is scheming.

[4]洛天依. “Luo Tian Yi”. Sheng Sheng is referring to the VOCALOID 3 software, where you input the melody of the song and the lyrics and then choose which character/voice, also called a VOCALOID, will sing the song. Luo Tian Yi is the name of a Chinese VOCALOID.

  1. Oh my, how i missed shengsheng and toupai. T_T

    And still ROFL right now, rather, on the bed, gosh, what kind of situation you found yourself in shengsheng. And its time for mommy meets the boyfriend scene! ::>_<::

    • It felt so good to be reading about them again. I missed them even more than I thought.

      Haha… I love what’s going through Sheng Sheng’s mom’s mind. “What’s my unmarried daughter doing here?”

  2. hahaaaa…the mum is there…anyone will think anything in the same situation…kekeee…owhhhh…i miss this couple..heeheee…thankssss…

  3. I didn’t follow Silent Separation because it’s not showing where I am, so I REALLY REALLY miss this story and the other translations. Thank you for this treat!

    • I only watched it on Daily Motion since it was blocked on Youtube for me.😦 But I really, really missed you, Toupai DaRen and Sheng Sheng, too!

  4. i missed toupai and shengsheng T_T

    waaaa the next part ould be so hilarious

  5. wowwww.. Dr. Mo, dont you know that i miss you so much?? and now, with this description, i wish someone would adapt this novel to drama! lols.. i want to see the ‘live action’ Dr. Mo and Sheng2.

    Mom would definitely interrogate sheng2.. cant wait for another chapter. this saturday asia time right? thanks Hoju.

    • Didn’t I read in one of the recap posts that you were showing how faithful you were to Wallace? 😉 But in all honesty, I don’t know how well this novel would translate to the screen with all the online, YY, QQ stuff. We’d have an awful lot of scenes with Toupai and Sheng Sheng with their headsets on in front of a screen.

      Yup. See you in <48 hours…

      • LOls, im faithful to wallace and some other handsome guys.. i always have many rooms in my heart to every single guy i like the most. so dont worry, Dr. Mo definitely gets the room.😀

        I read many comments about how they like a love story where the main OTP/lead actors, love each other and there’s no 3rd party, 4th etc.. and if i were a producer , i would definitely produce this novel into movie.. drama will take too many ‘unnecessary’ scenes, so movie is the best choice😀 unfortunately i dont have money, lols..

        fighting Hoju, i hope to see Lu Jun and Mo Ting as well (ehem *peanuts* ehem)

        • Yeah, but most screenwriters will just take the beautiful story and add a 3rd or 4th party. Look, even in My Sunshine, the author herself added Yi Mei and Ying Hui into the story to complicate the romance. :(I’m holding out hope for a good radio drama…

  6. Thanks. !!!
    Super missed this. ☺

  7. Omg, so good! I have this couple so much! Thank you for the translation!!!

  8. Thank you for updating, really, really miss this novel 😄
    Haha.. I think it was hard for Sheng Sheng’s mother to keep her thoughts pure given that kind of situation before her eyes.

  9. I missed the updates so much! Omg this id going to be hilarious though!!😀 It’s finally Toupain meeting the parents! The Silent Seperation recaps helped a lot bc not all eps are subbed!!

    • 🙂 Toupai is back on his regular shift now. How do you think our Toupai DaRen is going to do in front of MOM?

      Glad the recaps were helpful. Makes having constantly to press pause and play worth it, then.🙂

  10. Hoju thanks i have been waiting when u update😀 i miss sheng sheng and Toupai too🙂 hmm seem time for sheng sheng to introduce bf to mum🙂

    • Sheng Sheng doesn’t have much of a choice but to introduce bf to mom now. LOL. And how do you think Sheng Sheng will do? And Toupai?

      • haha i’m not really sure since sheng sheng look panic lol, maybe Toupai will rescue her ( i hope there will be story baby Toupai and sheng sheng in the end of the story hihi ) , oh Hoju by the way how the story now i mean the new version ? have you read yet?

        • I haven’t. I’m waiting for the book to be published, which, based on the author’s Weibo, is still in the works. I’m not bothering to read the modified online version yet because a lot of the chapters are locked down in jjwxc (I don’t pay for VIP status), so I’ll just wait until I have the book in hand instead of looking for a bootleg version.😉 I can’t wait! I really, really hope she adds to the ending, which I felt was a little abrupt.

  11. Adore your translation of this beautiful story. It reminds me of when I first courted my strong, beautiful wife and how shy she was in those first early days. I have become a huge fan of the sweeter, lower angst Chinese romance novels and Mo and Sheng Sheng’s story is now one of my favorites.

    • I love how your praise your wife.🙂 What a sweet and beautiful thing to do. And wow, I think you’re my first male reader!

      I think your taste in novels will be really similar to mine, as well. I’ve declared many times my angst tolerance is extremely low, practically zero nowadays, and really enjoy the sweet romance stories. That’s why I adore this novel!

      Thank you!

  12. Yay! So happy to have Toupai and Sheng Sheng back! Thank you😀

  13. Sheng’s mother is pregnant?..

    • Tehe… now that would be quite an interesting twist.

      “That pregnant woman’s profile looked so familiar…
      That person beside her looked even more familiar…”

      Mom is the one beside the pregnant woman.😉

  14. Wow, Toupai and Sheng Sheng are back. Sheng Sheng’s mom is putting one plus one together. 😉

    • She didn’t need to do much adding. The whole situation is screaming the message right at her, albeit the message is actually wrong! LOL

  15. thank you for new chapter .. i missed the updates alot …

  16. Finally… Toupai & Sheng2 are back 😍 How I miss them so… Thanks for the translation, Hoju!

  17. Thanks miss them

  18. Toupai!! He will finally be introduced to her family now…Sheng Sheng has no choice lol

  19. Hahaha omg. What a nice coincidence.
    Thanks a lot, hoju~

    • I can see Toupai DaRen has managed to capture your heart.❤ I'm glad you're enjoying the story. My apologies for not replying to your individual comments. I'm heading off on vacation shortly and still caught in the middle of packing. However, thank you so much for faithfully leaving a comment with each chapter. I love hearing from my readers.❤ You're nearing the finish line of the story. Hope you love it!
