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.
