The introduction to the novel taken from – Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚)

The most far off distance in the world, is not that I am by your side, yet you do not know that I love you.

It is that you are by my side, yet I do not know that I love you.

Or, that we are this close, yet one must go left, and the other going right.

Many years ago, Zheng Xie vowed, “If I am to have any other thoughts about He He, than let me be struck by thunder!”

He firmly believes that the rationality is much stronger than emotions.
Many years later, in ways that he had never expected, was struck by both thunders and earthquakes.
