Fangirling Chinese Novels

Blazing Sunlight I (骄阳似我 上) – Chapter 29



Here is the chapter which everyone is waiting excitedly for. Finally VP Lin meets Zhuang Xu. Read on to find out what will happen.

A few weeks ago, Gu Man had a Q&A session with her fans on her birthday. She revealed some spoilers for Book 2 which I’ll post below this chapter. If you don’t want to know, don’t scroll down😛

Chapter 29

June until January, it has already been half a year ……

I have deliberately not thought about tomorrow, but I did not expect this moment to arrive so early.

Nie Xi Guang, you must not let yourself down.

I quickly averted my eyes from that figure, took the initiative to step forward, smiled and greeted them: “Oh, how come all of you are also here?”

Nearly everyone was here, Boss, Boss’s husband, Xiao Feng, Si Jing, Zhuo Hui, Rong Rong ……

There was also Zhuang Xu standing beside her.

For a moment, I seemed to have returned to the old days ……

But I did not want to return to my frame of mind in the old days.

I was beaming when looking at them.

Unfortunately, my perfect opening was quickly destroyed by Boss. Looking like she was deceived, she yanked my ear and roared, “Nie Watermelon, didn’t you say you’ve to stay in Suzhou to overtime on the 1st so you cannot come out?”

I felt dizzy. Boss, when will you change your bad habit of yanking people’s ear whenever you feel excited.

Xiao Feng and Si Jing also came over and asked at the same time: “Watermelon, why are you here?”

“Yes ah, some more dressed so beautifully. Initially, we did not even recognize you.”

“Are you working in Suzhou? Boss, when did you manage to contact Watermelon? Why didn’t you tell us?”

“Didn’t you go abroad to study? When I changed my phone number in July, I called you but couldn’t get through.”

I answered one by one.

“I’m in Suzhou.”

“I was overseas in July so I cannot receive any call.”

“I did not go aboard to study. Why did all of you think I went to study abroad? It was a study tour. In fact, it was just to go sight-seeing aboard for two months.”

“Study tour?!”

A deep and repressed voice can be heard. Other people immediately stopped talking.

It was Zhuang Xu.

“Yes ah.” I paused for a while, turned my gaze, and finally fixed my gaze on his face, “Accompanying Jiang Rui there.”

“Not to study aboard?” He took a step towards me. It was probably due to the light, because he looked particularly gloomy like storm clouds approaching.

“No, not ah ……”

Suddenly Rong Rong advanced a few steps forward to stand next to him. She was all smiles when she said to me: “Xi Guang, the Boss was decorating the wedding venue today, so why didn’t you come?”


She simply did not give me a chance to speak. “Actually, you really ought to come and learn because I’ve learned a lot. When I get married, I’ll know how to arrange things. It is very interesting to decorate the wedding venue.”

Indeed very interesting ……

I smiled, “All of you should know that I have always been the most lazy one.”

“Oh, by the way, Xi Guang, I want to apologize to you about what happened before. I’m sorry for wrongly accusing you.” Rong Rong appeared very sincere, “After stepping into society, I only realised our friendship during university days is hard to come by. I’ve found my happiness now so I hope you can also find your ‘own’ happiness! Don’t just look at ‘other people’ happiness! You also have to make an extra effort!”

“Ye Rong!”

“Xi Guang.”

Two voices can be heard almost at the same time. I turned my head to look at who has been calling me. In the midst of the gently falling snow, Lin Yu Sen who was wearing a black coat, was walking up the stairs, step by step.

At this moment, I was so grateful to him.

Grateful to him for being so calm, charismatic, elegant and outstanding.

I turned around and ran down the flight of steps.

He was a bit surprised, stopped in his footsteps and watched me ran to him.

I grasped for breath and stopped in front of him. I looked up at him but did not know what to say because my mind was confused.

“What’s up?” He asked me with an exceptionally low and soft intonation.

I stared blankly at him. After a while, I only recovered my train of thought, “…… bumped into my university classmates.”

He raised his head to look at the top of the stairs. Then he paused and did not make any movement for quite a while. I slowly calmed down, turned around and followed his gaze. Zhuang Xu was standing at the edge of the stairs and staring at us. Under the neon lights, the expression in his eyes was dark and unclear.

Suddenly Lin Yu Sen pulled my hand.

“Your classmates? Come with me.”

He pulled me a couple of steps, before I reacted and wanted to break free. But I only managed to move slightly, before he tightened his hold on me.

He led me back to the top of the stairs. Then very naturally let go of my hand.

Boss and others were all looking at us and have difficulty concealing their shocked expression.

Xiao Feng spoke up: “Watermelon, you ……”

Si Jing was the first one to react, “Watermelon, aren’t you going to introduce?”

Introduce what ……

I raised my head to look at Lin Yu Sen.

“So you have such a nickname? Why you’ve never told me?” He looked at me with a smile on his face. His voice was gentle, like the falling snow. Then he turned to look at Si Jing and others, revealing a faint and gentle smile: “Hello, I’m Lin Yu Sen.”

Boss was obviously lost in her thoughts for a little while.

“Haha, hello, how are you? We are Watermelon’s schoolmates at the university.” Then she looked at me and pretended to complain, “Watermelon, you said you cannot come to help because you’ve to work overtime. Actually, it is to accompany your boyfriend, paying more attention to a boyfriend than friends! You should have told me earlier, so that I won’t try to force you to come.”

“Please don’t blame her.” Lin Yu Sen smilingly helped me to explain, “Xi Guang was supposed to work overtime, but my close friend was getting married today. She is adamant about meeting her, so I’ve to bring her here.”

Boss chuckled: “Aiya, okay, okay, I am not angry with her. Isn’t it normal to pay more attention to a boyfriend than friends?”

They probably already considered Lin Yu Sen as my boyfriend. I did not want them to misunderstand, but at this very moment ……

I did not want to deny even more.

I turned my head to look at the side of the road, “Didn’t you go to get your car?Why I didn’t see your car?”

Otherwise, we can go back now.

“The car is blocked by another car. The traffic police cannot find the vehicle owner at such short notice. I am afraid you’ll be waiting anxiously so I came over first.”

“Uh, cannot drive out?”

Lin Yu Sen glanced at his watch, “If still cannot find the owner later, I’ll ask the driver to send us back to Suzhou.”

“Oh.” I nodded my head. I almost forgot this was his home turf.

“Wow!” Suddenly Xiao Feng patted on my shoulder, “Watermelon, your family also has a driver!”

“Not my family.”

Si Jing smilingly said: “Got it! It is your boyfriend family’s driver.”

All of a sudden, the atmosphere seemed to turn lively. Xiao Feng chattered continuously to ask a lot of questions, where he worked, where they met and so on …… I answered some, but Lin Yu Sen answered most of them.

He always smiled and handled the questions with ease.

In the midst of noise, Rong Rong’s cold voice can be heard, “Zhuang Xu, where are you going?”

Everyone quietened down.

I did not know when, but Zhuang Xu has already braved the snow to walk down the steps alone.

“I’ll go and get a taxi.” He halted his footsteps for a while and did not even turn around when he said that.

“Why do you’ve to go elsewhere?” Rong Rong sounded stiff, “Can’t you get a taxi here? We came over because it is easier to get a taxi here.”

“You can get a taxi here.”

He said this sentence and went ahead to walk down the stairs without even looking at us.

“You stand there.”

Rong Rong bit her lower lip, glanced at me and quickly turned around to chase after him.

“Uh, Watermelon, we are also going. Come early to the wedding ceremony tomorrow, just opposite the hotel.” After a moment of silence, Boss said goodbye to me first.

“Okay, okay.” I nodded and tried to focus my attention on her, “Then see you tomorrow.”

Everyone said goodbye to us one after another. Before leaving, Boss waved to Lin Yu Sen: “You must also come to my wedding with Watermelon tomorrow.”

“I’ll definitely come.” Lin Yu Sen said with a smile.

They completely disappeared into the darkness. All of a sudden, the surroundings seemed quiet, only the falling snowflakes.

I turned around to ask Lin Yu Sen: “The car still cannot be driven out? I want to go back to Suzhou earlier.”

“Return to Suzhou for what? I’ll bring you around to have fun.”


He looked away from a distant place and rested his gaze on my face, “Don’t tell me I brought you out happily, but to bring you back crestfallen?”


“Got meh?”

He lowered his head to look at me, “On the brink of tears.”

His voice was extremely gentle and soft. Actually it was unlikely for me to cry. But with him saying like this, suddenly I felt like crying.

“So, you want to go and look at the night view or watch a movie? Or …… if you like to play games, then we will go to that kind of amusement arcade? Exactly that kind of ……”

I stared blankly at him because I discovered that I was not able to keep up with his line of thought.

He probably has never set foot in that kind of place because he was trying very hard to describe it: “Exactly that kind of amusement arcade where you can dance, you can throw at a basket, race car and so on?”

Why did I think every one of the options was also very attractive …… as long as not returning to that dormitory all alone ……

I made a fist. Suddenly I was controlled by my impulse: “Then we’ll go and look at the night view first. Afterwards watch a movie and then go to the amusement arcade?”

“Nie Xi Guang ……”

Unexpectedly, he laughed, took out his wallet from the coat and tossed it to me, “Why are you so greedy? Quick help me to count, to see if the money I brought is enough.”

I must have been affected by his mood, because suddenly I felt excited and emotional. Therefore I really opened his wallet and counted the money. Then I pointed across the street and said: “There is a bank over there. I’ll go and get some money. You are too poor.”

“Really not enough? Still a lot left ah.” Lin Yu Sen moved his head to look at the wallet, “I’ll go and get the money. Miss Nie, tell me how much of my money do you intend to spend tonight?”

“No need la. Are you as rich as me?”

I was holding my bank card and running down the flight of steps.

The ice-cold snowflakes were falling on my face. Some of my rationality returned. I turned around to look at him who was walking behind me. Seeing that I turned around, he waved at me, as if urging me to go and get the money quickly.

Hence I also waved at him and ran quickly into the bank.

Supposedly, Watermelon and VP Lin will break-up and Book 2 can be teary! Gu Man said something along the lines that there may be a “warm, cute epilogue” but who knows if that means they break-up in the middle and get back together again, or they break up as a conclusion but then have a warm epilogue? She also complained that because she had written the novel from the first person perspective, she cannot write about VP Lin and Zhuang Xu’s inner thoughts. Thus she can only torture Watermelon with some angst.

Sob sob, it is okay to break them up in the middle of the novel but she better lets my Sen Ge (meaning brother Sen in Chinese which is how the book fans and Gu Man address him) and Gua Mei (meaning sister Melon in Chinese) to ultimately have a happy ending, be it in the book or epilogue.

  1. She could give us Sen 哥 inner thoughts in the epilogueI have . 😇 Oh boy breakup??? I’m sure

    • Arrghh stupid phone keyboard. Accidentally press send. Anyways … I’m as long as she don’t get back with Mr Constipated.

      • Hahaha….Mr. Constipated…hehehehe….Zhuang Xu also like someone has a rod up his bum…

        Me two, I also ship for LYS & NXQ together. Don’t like and care for sour, selfish & self-centre guy who always think the world owe him for coming from poor family.

    • I suspect she is going to do so but she is not revealing much now. She wrote Yi Mei’s inner thoughts in the epilogue for Silent Separation.


  3. Thanks. A break up. I was shipping her with VP Lin. They are cute together. Don’t like RR, the way she bitches that she has found her happiness.

  4. Thanks peanuts! Did Gu Man mention when Book 2 might be out? Ack! I don’t want teary! I’ve already cried for them in book 1 (or maybe for Lin Yu Sen). But I hope this means that they will end up together and not her with Zhuang Xu. I sometimes do feel bad for him but he didn’t cherish it when he had it or be clear with her so he can’t blame her for if someone else comes into the picture. Thanks for the scoop! 😊

  5. Thank you so much~! Nuuuuuuuuuuu they can’t break up T-T I love them together, she better not end up with ZW tho. I’d rather her be alone then get together with ZW who knows what mischief RR is just waiting to stir up. I’m shipping LYS and NXQ til the end!

  6. NO!! Nie Xi Guang cannot break up with Lin Yu Sen!! He just became her knight in shining armour in front of her horrible varsity mates!! Zhuang Xu never defended her. He only knew how to make her feel bad. He and Rong Rong deserve each other. Omg.

    @peanuts How many chapters left in Book 1? & any word on when Book 2 is coming out? Are there only going to be two books?

    Thank you for your translation! This is my current favourite story! =)

  7. She should make a special chapter on the guys’ point of view :3

  8. Thanks for the chapter!

  9. The more I read, the more i don’t like Zhuang Xu >.< he never clear the problem and always made things looks bad for Xi Guang.
    Book 2 …. book 2….LYS will break up with XG ….. hope they will made up right away ….

    Thank you for updating ^^

  10. Noooo don’t break uppppp. So ship this couple.
    I seriously only see Zhuang Xu as a young crush back when she is teenage really.
    I mean there is no chemistry between them and all they do is making each other miserable. And then you tell yourself that there is ‘something’ going on between you and him.
    It is kind of love that you keep convince yourself that it is good when it is actually unhealthy. And the type that you telling yourself that you like him and know about him but actually does not know what’s going on in your head. I just don’t like the unhappy and no-fundamental feeling between them. Ahhhhh I feel old saying all this lol.

    Sail Lin boat all the way till we get hand on book2.

  11. Thank you so much!! 😘😘😘

  12. Thank you…..i need a happy ending…RR has already lost when she glanced at XG and turn to chase after ZX….

  13. ah… this story is really good. it’s okay la.. breakup for a moment, so they can learn how much they love each other, but please… let them together GM.

    am i the only one who felt glad when ZX left?? sorry la. but seriously.. he always run away.. sigh.

    thanks peanuts🙂

  14. Thank you for the update.

    Omg, noooo. If they break up they better have an amazing getting back together. I heart then so much together!!! They have so much chemistry…

    They end up happily together in my heart if Gu Man breaks them up permanently.

  15. Thank you🙂

  16. I want to yell at the author: PLEASE DON’T SEPARATE THEM (XG and LYS). If they don’t end up together, then I will just treat that second book never exist T_T
    Thanks Peanut.

  17. Thanks for the update

    Joining the choir of XG LYS 4EVER


  18. LOL. LYS is the best!!!!!

  19. Any news when is the target date the Second book will release?

  20. OMG. .. love the Mr constipated name.
    Totally don’t wanna see the watermelon with a man who does not stand by his woman
    All the way LYS! !!!!!! The real man ☺

  21. those university friends continue to suck. Go LYS FTW!

  22. Break up is fine as long as they end up together

  23. Thanks for this chapter, peanuts!

  24. A very important fact is that they will get together in the first place! Either Xi Guang likes him back, or she gave him a chance, and perhaps for her to try and forget Zhuang Xu? Then if they breakup… (nooooooooo never!!), why would they break up? Perhaps she realizes that the one she loves is Zhuang Xu? (doubt it, nope, no way, LYS is her one true love, she’ll mistakenly believe she loves Zhuang Xu, but she’ll come to her senses) or maybe, she finds out the story behind his car accident and why he couldn’t be a doctor anymore, and feels guilty because of her somewhat indirect involvement? (not too sure about this, only read this on Shushengbar). Sighh, look at me, throwing out wild ideas because i am getting excited yet anxious at how the story will unfold! I pray for book 2’s speedy arrival!

  25. I hope LYS n NXG be together as LYS atleast changed his attitude towards NXG knowing she is hurting because of his behaviour. ZX never even tried to be good with NXG.Sorry for any grammatical mistakes.

  26. Please dont break up so nice se xi guang and sen ge ge together … I dont like ZH …. he attitude so meh…. all the miss understanding just let go like that without future explanation …. make xi guang heart broken ….. LYS more good for xi guang ….thanks you for update…. and the spoiler to… will wait for next chapter

  27. Thank you for the translation. Just started this story today and somehow ended up reading until now. With the spoiling, I’m soooooo afraid they won’t end in a happy ending. Please don’t be like that. They are soooo cute together!!

  28. Thank you for the this chapter

  29. Nooooooo!!! I hope the author is just joking with us….
