The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Epilogue *NOVEL COMPLETED*

Side Note: While there has been no official announcement, the station that bought the airing rights for Go Go Squid! (drama adaptation of the novel, Stewed Squid with Honey) has created a page for the drama and put the airing date as January 1, 2019. Take this with a grain of salt and wait for the official news, but that gives you an approximate idea.

We have come to the end of The Healing Sunshine‘s translation. I’ve shed many tears for it as I had to immerse myself in it more than ever in order to hopefully, in translation, capture all those emotions that are within the novel. And so, exhausted, joyful that this couple has been given a happy ending, slightly melancholic over what they have gone through and what they will have to face in the future with Jì Chengyang’s health, and rather sad as I’m going to miss this couple, I bid farewell to Xixi and Little Uncle Jì. Hopefully you have enjoyed the story and perhaps, like me, have felt for not just the leads of the story but the other characters as well. Thank you for those who have come with me as I also walked alongside Xixi in her growth journey. I appreciate all the support you have given, love your comments, and am grateful to just have you guys around. 🙂 Post includes the epilogue, the author’s afterword, and some remarks from me to close off this project.

This is a heartwrenching epilogue, but in some ways, it provides closure. We now have a glimpse into some of the details we were missing before.

My promise has been kept; it is the happy ending you have all waited for. It may not be extravagant, it may not be what you expected, but the ending he gave her is the ending she has always wanted—Jì Chengyang style.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Chapter 26.2

Love that has not been translated into action is not really love. You will see through Jì Chengyang’s actions that his care for Xixi was never simply out of convenience. You will see the extent he considered her in the past and continues to do so for the future. *sniffles* At last, the right that was once stripped from Xixi has been taken back, and she can again freely walk through every corner that contains her childhood memories. (So, so, so grateful that Jì Chengyang has family that supports him and has always treated Xixi so well.)
