The One [Chapter 107]

While walking, Wheeler comments that he didn’t know that his father is quite sentimental for why would he invest a lot in Angus, and it isn’t his style not to ask for any payback. Ulysses says that it is possible that it is because Angus makes his heart ache for he is almost at the same age as Wheeler and his life has a lot of pain [I think, the scan is cut off] and those are the things that a young person should not experience. Wheeler asks how come he didn’t acknowledge him for they can be friends. Ulysses says that there’s no benefit for Angus in knowing someone like him and given his status and background, that would just constantly remind Angus of his previous life so right now, this is okay. He says that if possible, he hopes that Angus would forever not remember. Ulysses thinks that he is the only one who knows that a part of his blood flows in Angus, which he used to save him [blood transfusion] and like this, he’ll use his own way to make Angus remember him throughout his life. This made Angus suddenly turn around to look back. Then, Angus is happy over how bright his room looks now with all the mirrors taken away and it feels quite comfortable. Eros narrates that this room is like Angus’ heart cage and at first, he thought it is because Angus is a narcissist but it turns out that it is a place where he confines himself since the inverted image on the mirror is him [Eros], so it is his safety zone, the world that he wants, and it appears that something is quietly changing. Angus says that aren’t they moving to the province [/rural area] so why waste money in fixing this. Eros tells him that this is his house and aren’t they coming back, unless he wants to stay at the ranch throughout his life. Angus excitedly asks if there are a lot of horses at Taylor’s ranch. While packing, Eros tells him all about it. Eros has told Angus that after their mother died, he went to find some work and ends up at Taylor’s place. Taylor specially cared for both of them and after a lot of years, he is like a father. And, it won’t be long when they’ll have a new life. While Angus is sleeping, Eros looks at Lele’s picture on his cellphone and wonders how she is doing. Meanwhile, Fei Hong asks Lele how long is she going to stare at her cellphone, and if she really wants to know about the situation, why don’t she call him. Lele refuses to bother Eros after learning from Leo what had happened so far to Young and Angus. Her aunt tells her that it is almost a month since that happened, Angus is discharged from the hospital and he should be contacting her. Her aunt says that she did the right thing in forcing her to come back for she [Lele] basically couldn’t be compared above his younger brother and it will be hard for her to be with him so right now, she should sever..
Lele stands up and says that she is going to the toilet. Fei Hong thinks that she hit Lele’s sore spot. Then, Lele’s cellphone rings. Fei Hong reads the message from Eros who is asking how she is and he really wants to see her. He writes that she must have known of the situation from Leo. The accident has ruined his plan and he won’t be able to fulfill the ‘one year’ agreement. He will be leaving New York with Angus to start a new life. He knows that it is quite selfish of him to ask her to wait but he cannot give her up. He asks Lele what he should do and let him know what she thinks. Fei Hong is furious for a year isn’t enough and what does he think of her Lele and didn’t he know a woman’s youth is very valuable, an idiot would wait for him. After sending a message, Fei Hong decides that she won’t let Lele get involved with him again. She throws the cellphone on the floor and tells Lele that she got careless and broke it. With this, Fei Hong thinks that Eros would give up after not being able to contact Lele for a few days. Eros is shock to get a message from ‘Lele’ telling him to give up for he has already chosen between her and Angus, and she realized this upon returning to Taiwan. This isn’t the love that she wanted and since he couldn’t fulfill their agreement, don’t look for her again. Soon, the twins and An Bai arrive at the ranch. Taylor and his wife, Berry gives them a warm welcome. Soon, they eat and have a toast. Berry comments over her surprise that they even have a beautiful lady as their guest. It was Angus who wanted An Bai to come along. Berry realizes that she was the one whom Angus first saw at the hospital so he always sticks to her. An Bai nervously laughs it off that it is just a ‘chick bird complex’ [<- something like getting attached to the first person one sees]. This made Taylor ask Angus if he thinks of An Bai as his mother. Angus says of course not, for she is his angel. Then, to the others’ surprise, Angus insists on An Bai letting her hair down since she always put it up after he got out of the hospital. Then, they show Angus Eros’ horse who bit Angus’ hand when he tries to feed it. While An Bai laughs her head off, Eros apologizes to Angus that he forgot that the horse only likes him. And upon arriving at the ranch, Angus had a rare nightmare-less sleep. Then, Angus wakes up to a delicious breakfast and someone singing like his mother. Berry greets him and serves breakfast to everyone who is already at the table. Berry specially made a hot milk which Angus likes when he was young. This made Angus cry for it seems that he has forgotten its taste. With Berry being mother-like, it helped Angus quickly adapt to the life there. And, they spend their lives at the farm quietly.
After some time passed, Eros comes back. Berry wants to prepare the food for them but Eros refuses by saying that he’s not hungry so they all just eat ahead of him. Berry tells Taylor about Eros becoming depressed as the days pass by. Ever since Eros came back with Angus, he would always busy himself at work. While Angus is getting better and cheerful, all the more Eros wasn’t able to hide his loneliness that it is obviously lately. She is worried for every time Eros comes back, he won’t eat and locks himself in his room. She asks Taylor if this has something to do with his girlfriend since it have been a long time he mentioned her. In front of a white board, Eros imagines Lele and draws her silhouette figure on the board. He tapes it and starts to paint. Taylor looks in and tells Eros that it doesn’t have a model outline[/silhouette]. He says that Eros is good at that, he would remember the body figure of the person he misses. That is what he did when Eros started living with him, he always lock himself in the room and draws his mother’s figure. Taylor asks him what happened with him and Lele, didn’t she say she’ll wait for him. Eros looks flustered and quiet. Outside, An Bai is pulling the weeds when Angus suddenly frightens her. After being shocked, An Bai tells him that he always does that game. He tells her that she always get frightened. He touches her face and says that it is dirty. She immediately slaps his hand off her and says that it is because of farm work. Angus starts to tell her about how he finds it suspicious that she surprisingly stayed with him for almost two years and how could a city girl just abandon a beautiful life just to stay with him. An Bai insists that she did it for the salary. Angus tells him that given her educational background, she can find a better job yet all this time, she is staying with him so there’s only one reason for it and that is, she likes him. This made An Bai blush. Angus says that she’s quite stubborn and for two years, not matter what he did [like seducing her], she put up her guard. He asks if it is quite scary to admit that she likes him. An Bai says yes, because she wants to protect her heart. This surprises Angus. Next chapter will be out on December 5th in Taiwan.
Comment: And from that, I guess it is goodbye for Ulysses though he must be popular enough to make it into the colored spread. ^^; With only a few chapters left, we are still in a flashback. I guess what the author did was show the present then go back to the past and move it up to the present as to what happened to the twins. It turns out that Eros did contact Lele once but unfortunately for them, it got intercepted by Fei Hong. I’m not too sure if I should be angry at Fei Hong for doing that or at Eros for giving up easily. ^^; Well, he never bothered to try and contact her again. Hm..what kind of answer does he want to hear? That she’ll continue to wait for him? In order to have some sort of assurance? And, since he cannot promise her anything so in the end, whether or not, the text was intercepted, Lele would still have to or rather, had waited for him. So, after two years, Angus is recovering and Eros is going depressed. ^^; One more year left before the present..Angus seems to be recovering so how come Eros didn’t try to contact Lele again for a year? Angus had a relapse? Well, if we’re lucky maybe the couple will at least meet in the last few pages of the next chapter. Scans by 字丑又宅 for baidu.

  1. thank you for your summary Kat

    but really, i am quite upset about eros right now, why does he always wait instead of trying to get lele back? it always has been lele to be the one who get him, yet he just asked lele to wait for him using text message, really?
    so insecure, so loveless yet didn't try to get what he really want, i think the one who need help is no longer angus anymore :D
    really disappointed about the progress of this manhua :(

  3. Thank you for your hard work Kat ^^
    i am also very disappointed in eros, man this are one of the last chapters, he is giving up so easy, I am angry at Fei Hong, but I also think, he chose angus over lele, also is there no other way to let work both things, like meeting in secrets. And it is hard to wait without contacts, there is much trust needed, and there comes eros, who just eat up the message and suffer quitly, without going after lele. And also the part with waiting it is to stupid, why do woman have to wait till man finish his important business. Lele is always on the giving end, like not different from all the other heroins.

  4. Hi thanks for the summary.

    I am disappointed in Eros because he give up so easy. Lele always has been the one who tried to made the relationship work until the "Mandy" incident which make Eros finally show us that he really loves Lele and want to make their relationship work too. Why can't he do the same thing? fly to Twain and meet her then tell her everything. He can trust Taylor and others to take care of Angus for few days. It is not like Angus is dying. Beside I wish Angus notice that Eros is depressed and ask him about it. Eros should be honest with Angus about his feelings. I don't know if I should be angry at Fei Hong because Fei Hong watch Lele grow up from baby to adult. It is like she have a mother instinct feelings. She wants to protect Lele from getting her heart broken, but she didn't realize if Lele finds out that Fei Hong is the one who send that text message to Eros which will also hurt Lele. I kind of understand Fei Hong's perspective because I am a mother too, but Fei Hong should know that Lele is not a baby anymore, and she is an adult which Fei Hong should have back off. As for An Bai and Angus, I think An Bai will tell Angus how he was in the past before he lose his memorizes. I mean his personality not his life in the past. I think An Bai is scared to get hurt if Angus get his memorizes back and end up hurt An Bai if she decides to be in relationship with him. Anyway the horse and Angus made me laugh! I hope next few chapters will not be sad, I want to see things get better and better, but seems like mangaka is not going for that. Its like sad sad sad sad then happy ending! Know what I mean? I am curious about Andre and how is he doing since he told Lele to give him 3 years to prove that he is a man enough for Lele. <3 Tika

      Yup. I also thought of that..he did it before but now, he didn't. Just because of Angus? Would Angus had a mental breakdown if he calls/contact Lele? Maybe he just wants to 'respect' Lele's decision..though ya, that is giving up easily.

      Ya, it might be a bit of trouble if Lele knows she sent that message. And, Eros easily believed it and gave up. ^^; True, but from what is shown, Fei Hong still treats Lele a baby..remember how she freaked out when she learned that they had sex. =P So, Fei Hong is 'in character'.

      It is most possibly that..regarding An Bai and Angus. And, when she mentioned 'protecting the heart', I wonder if that would jog Angus' memories and recall that he is kind of like that so he is indifferent with everyone except for Eros.

      Hopefully, it will be better but that seems to be the direction where the series is going. I think it might end with the couple's reunion as the happy ending and that's it.

      Well, probably when the flashback is over, Andre will appear..and there is also Feidna. ^^;;

  5. Thanks for the summary (as always!!!),

    I think that on the other hand, I don't blame or hate Fei Hong did that. Honestly, won't you protect the one you love the most?? She understand that Eros hurt Lele to the extend it became physical (a.k.a. his brother). How would you know if what will happen if they continue and Angus isn't getting better? In my opinion, Fei Hong won't be as piss if Eros himself come to ask Lele to be with him again, however, Eros is making Lele wait (like a bottomless pit, you don't know when you hit rock bottom). She is right, a woman's time is very valuable. I mean, if someone does that to my close love ones, I would basically do the same thing as Fei Hong did, perhaps meaner and crueler.

    I think Eros is digging his own grave, he makes Lele wait and wait and keep hurting her. Doesn't he understand that there is a limit to how much a person can take a hit (Well, Lele part, I don't understand how she can keep receiving blow after blow)? He deserve to be in a depression. Because he is quite selfish all the way in the relationship with Lele.

    As for Ulysses, I do like him however, I don't like him with Angus. In a way, Ulysses is like Angus's father, ruthless; their relationship starts with him making Angus have no choice but to stay with him (in a sense). An Bai, on this case, I don't know. I like Young better to be with Angus. I feel really bad for him.

      Is that so..I'm curious what would be the 'meaner and crueler' thing you'll do. Though, yes, what Fei Hong did is understandable in that circumstance.

      Ya..probably because he wasn't the one waiting. True..well, I guess it is because Lele is in love so.. That's right, I think that is the mangaka's 'tit-for-tat' for Eros with what he is doing to Lele.

      That's right. And, An Bai..seems 'out of the blue'. True..poor guy.

    2. Well,

      It have to be somewhat of the type and the level of the problem is (can't really say what will I do until that occurs though). However, if they were meant to be together whatever it will be, they always be together (like a red thread tying them together).

      I also think the mangaka, always put them in unthinkable situation. And she's making Angus's surrounding of unspeakable pain (ex, Young, Ulysses, An Bai)

      Delete
    3. Yup..that is what Eros is banking on = if they are meant to be together, Lele will always wait for him.

      True..it is quite heavy drama.

    4. I love this manhua and the one is making me angry the most right know is the aunt she's so annoying why didn't she protect Lele at the start when she needed her the most? if eros hadn't been there lele would have been raped from the start and have been a broken person by now.If eros hadn't been with her she wouldn't have been a famous model.

      Delete
    5. Hm..I think her aunt has been protective of her from the start and is into a bit of 'tough love' when Lele went into a slump after her grandmother's death which drifted them apart.

      Ah, what rape are you talking about? Eros' attempted rape on her to make her leave him? Hehe, that's the only one I can think of right now. ^^;

      I'm not sure if she is a broken person without Eros. I believe she is a strong girl/woman and she did/can manage to pick herself up most of the time. Maybe a cold person..but broken..I don't think so. On contrary, I think Eros would still be a 'broken' person who is chained by his past, without Lele.

      Hm..I didn't get that impression though..browsing over the past chapters, Lele worked her way up to where she is now and not because it is thanks to Eros. He helped somehow, yes..but I don't think it is up to the point that she won't be famous without him.

    6. Her aunt wasn't that protective of her she sent her to a country knowing that lele is very careless person about people and directions. she would have been raped by a group of models at the party at the beginning if it weren't for Eros taking her to the dorm. he's the one who has always been help to her and watches over her. If you tell me he's cold person i'll tell you her aunt is very cold person too. her mom was dying while she wants lele to work instead of going to see her dying grandma.

      she wanted to give up on being a model so many times if it weren't for eros encouraging her not to quit.

      her aunt told eros not to contact or see lele until he solves his problems with his bro first and when he finally contacts lele she tells him to give up on her and bla bla bla.

      if you tell me eros has hurt her i'l also tell you that almost everyone has hurt her both physically and emotionally not just eros. if she's suffering right now eros is suffering too.

      he didn't hide anything from her and she accepted all. he's not telling her anything in those years because he knows that leo has told her what has happened.

      Delete
    7. Hehe, well, in that case, she wasn't overly protective. They did sent Lele to Japan without a guardian. Hm..I guess in a way, that is somewhat contradictory.

      Ah, that one..I didn't take that seriously since it comes out as a joke. Leo also saved Lele when she got robbed. It was all light-hearted then as if to jokingly point out that New York can be a scary place if you're not careful and get drunk in a party. That is why, it is Eros attempted rape which is in a more serious mood that I can remember. ^^;

      I know her aunt is a cold person and I did mention she is into 'tough love' = loving yet so strict. I did dislike her aunt for that. It is kind of wrong to prioritize the work than going to visit her grandma. At that time, I don't think they knew that the grandma is dying because she even managed to talk to Lele one last time after the photo shoot. And, Lele didn't immediately go home either after that. What I meant was because of that grandma incident, Lele has become a cold person but not necessarily 'broken'. Still, in somewhat forcing Lele to work after her grandma's death, her aunt is part of the reason why she is where she is now = be discovered and go to New York to meet with Eros again.

      Hm..I didn't recall Eros being there to encourage her when her grandma died and yet, she still work to become a famous model in Taiwan due to her aunt and somewhat wanting to follow her mother's footsteps. Of course, there are times when he did encourage her when she wanted to quit her work to help him out with his temporary drug addiction, among others. Thankfully, with the current situation, he did and she did follow his advice.

      Hehe..well, he didn't solve his problem and yet contacted Lele. Actually, maybe the aunt already has a bad impression on Eros. One thing is what happened to Lele = being attacked by Angus. Second is he let Lele see him again and stay over the night which is breaking their agreement. Hm..that is true..so maybe her aunt changed her mind about this whole waiting forever until he fixes his issue with his twin. Maybe, she didn't think that it will take that long. ^^;

      I have no problem with the guy in general. I know that Eros knows that Leo would tell Lele. My current disappointment is he easily gives up just because of that one text telling him to give up. Like why is there no follow up? Scared of another 'rejection', scared of Lele's aunt or doesn't want to bug her anymore? Where is the Eros who even went to Spain to go after her? Of course, he cannot just leave Angus though surely, there are other ways to contact Lele again..say through Leo.

      Ya, but then Eros is the male lead so I think that there is a different standard for him even as you've mentioned, 'almost everyone hurt her'. I won't be surprised if Feidna, Andre, etc did it..but if it is the male lead, it would make me think, does this guy deserve her? Not just for this series, but in all the series I read. That is my opinion though you might think otherwise.

      Of course, they are both suffering over this. I just hoped that Eros handled it differently and stayed in contact or something with Lele rather than totally no communication. That way, this 'misunderstanding' wouldn't have happened. I cannot actually argue much on why he did that since it doesn't quite make sense but then, he is a fictional character and the author seems to be just aiming for a reunion after three years as the finale of the series.
