MGCH Chapter 825

Reality (5)


Almost no one came to this house.

Over the years He Dongling was busy working and flying all around the world.

Additionally, He Nanxi hardly came back, fighting for his life to shine on the stage.

Their parents also got used to being abroad and simply emigrated.

He Nanxi opened the door and observed the familiar furnishings.

There were people sent from the domestic service center to tidy it up at regular intervals.

So it was still clean.

He Nanxi walked in, and stood still for a while.

Even so, he found that the most familiar figure did not rush out.

To call him Nanxi.

He Nanxi silently set down his luggage, and crouched down.

“Weiwei, I’ve been putting the key under the doormat, worried that without it you wouldn’t be able to get in when you get back.”

As He Nanxi spoke, his voice choked up.

“But you don’t seem to have ever come back.”

He Nanxi crouched for a while before he stood up again.

He went to the music room, opened the piano, and played it.

Remembered that day, when her ethereal voice directly pulled him into a beautiful fantasy world.

He had never heard such beautiful singing.

If she was still here, he would write songs for her.

Perhaps……

“You would be redder1 than me, you’d also become a superstar some day. Everyone would be your fan, and the brightest star would be you.”

He Nanxi finished playing the piano and said to himself.

“But life is unfair. You are clearly better than anyone else, yet it’s others that succeed.”

He Nanxi got up and went to the bathroom.

He turned on the water and filled the bathtub.

He changed his clothes to a casual loose fitting hooded jacket.

After he matured, he didn’t dress up like this for many years.

Because this style always carried the juvenile temperament of a teenager.

He Nanxi checked the water’s temperature with his hand, “For fear that you won’t recognize me, I’m wearing the clothes from that day I went to the bar to pick you up.”

The water temperature was just right, and He Nanxi laid down quietly.

Then he reached for the knife next to him, there was no hesitation when he slit his wrist.

The wound was terrible, if it wasn’t for the wrist bone blocking the blade.

He could have cut off his hand.

Blood desperately poured out.

The water in the bathtub turned red in an instant.

He Nanxi laid in the water quietly closing his eyes.

He had become the brightest star.

He fulfilled her wish, so he could finally rest.

On the day of Bai Weiwei’s death, He Nanxi had died as well.

What made him stay in this world was just the realization of Bai Weiwei’s dream, called He Nanxi.

Now that her wish had come true, he was finally able to close his eyes.

And have a good night’s sleep.

There was her smile in his dream, and she softly called, “Nanxi.”

He Nanxi laughed: “Hey, Weiwei.”

That’s nice.

– – – – – – – – – –

That’s nice.

That’s nice…………

Ye Yuxuan’s lips trembled, and the pain caused him to grit his teeth and muffle a shout.

It was too painful.

The pain, compared to any previous dream experience, was much more maddening.

Many individual fragments, shattered from the dream, and embedded into his body.

The sorrowful crazed emotions of those dreams made him almost incapable of withstanding it.

He couldn’t open his eyes, couldn’t move his body. It was as though his muscles were torn apart, and the bones began to break.

The pain of losing your beloved again and again.

All squeezed into one body.

Ye Yuxuan couldn’t breathe, he didn’t know how long he could carry on for.

He opened his mouth and silently cried: “Bai Weiwei, Bai Weiwei, Bai Weiwei……”

Every dream was of her, every time he couldn’t keep her.


1: redder – 红, meaning more famous.


Piper: Uuuhhhggg, so many great songs for a great ML (in a modern world too + music themed). Had to go with this one from Dodo, but claudecastle also had a great recommendation that I’ve added to my list of songs to potentially use later because it just fits the feel of this story too much (called Gone Too Soon by Simple Plan)! And if it weren’t for being a bit too repetitive, I found one called Singing Without You by Eylie. But if you guys ever get a song you think fits and arc, please don’t hesitate to recommend it! I love hearing new music! But now that you’ve cried your eyes out, I’ll see you tomorrow with more reality chapter goodness XD

  1. Now that our tear ducts are all warmed up from He Nanxi, we can all start crying for Ye Yuxuan!
    It’s like a buy one get one free of tragedies!
    Y-yaaay

  2. Yeah, now that I think about it, Ye Yuxuan is on the receiving end of all those tragedies. I mean, he was a bit of a cold asshole and doesn’t care about people… But he isn’t evil or bad “per se” and he still suffers a lot.

    Ty for the chapter

  3. I’m crying… How many times has our ML had his heart completely broken and the suffering he ga s gone through. This isn’t the last time either…

  4. He really did what I think he’d do😭😭😭 I also recommend Clouds by Before You Exit (it’s really sad and just right if you want to bawl your eyes put and needed a good bg music for more dramatic effect) the line that got me there was when the lyrics said ‘you’ll always be just like a sister’ ashajajdaabsha BWW is just like his mother😭Why am I even crying while laughing

    1. oh and I could somehow hear Nanxi singing it (me and my mental ears ughh) Thank you for the chapter and for appreciating the song, I totally agree, the lyric’s a perfect fit for me but the tune’s a bit off for a sad scene and it’s indeed kinda bit too repetitive, the Clouds on the other hand is just…sad XD

      1. agree, the song is a lot more upbeat than what I normally try to go with, but the lyrics can be quite spot on in some points (for both Nanxi and Dongling) like the cigarette on the balcony just hit me for Dongling, and I figured since we had two MLs (kinda) that it was pretty good.
        And the clouds song, dang. That one’s another great one! Thanks for the rec XD

  5. And though He Dongling left an ultimate slag experience, I also reluctantly want to recommend a song for him😒….XD The Reason by Hoobastank (try out the covers, I especially like Boyce Avenue’s but the original got some more kind of powerful grit on it) You’ll know even from the first line in of the yrics that it’s especially and ‘perfectly’ dedicated to him😂👌

      1. np, I am too, although my tastes are a bit obscure (some artists I love and have followed for years are starting to gain some traction though, like Alec Benjamin, other’s not so much… Looking at you Lauren Aquilina (her songs “King”, “Fools”, and “Sinners” are great)) I like to use this opportunity to find songs people might not have heard of before from artists that have probably never appeared on the radio, and I like to get recommendations because I can also find new music XD it’s a win-win!

  6. Oh Nanxi 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
    And the torment that Ye Yuxuan keeps suffering is going to break his mind 🥺😫😫😫😫😫😫

    Thanks for the chapter 🤧
