Even though Xun Xun changes her mindset towards Cheng Li after working with him, even liking him as a man felt so unrealistic. Cheng Li’s mother exposed Xun Xun that she has a son to break them up.

Cheng Li felt betray as there are many chance for her to be honest after they are official. On the other hand, Xun Xun’s ex-husband is back and want to patch back with her for the sake of their son.

Things happened and Cheng Li want to walk into her life, to be accepted by her son as well.

Even though this story is unrealistic, but maybe there is 0.000001% case happened in the real world. Still, this is yet another drama that proves young man can be mature and the gap of two minds does not determine by their actual age.
