Novel My Dearest General: It Has Always Been You
Shi Nian was the only victim of the mass serial killer who manage to escape successfully. Unfortunately, in the middle of fleeing, she fell into a landslide and got buried underneath.
Afterwhich, she was in a coma for three months. Upon waking up, everyone thought that Shi Nian had gone insane. Or else, how could she take fancy on a violent, hot-tempered and mentally unstable ex high jump athlete, Jiang Jinyan, who lost one of his legs in a car accident?
No one knew the fact that upon waking up, Shi Nian had regained the memory of her past life. Her lord, General Jiang was a valiant hero who led thousands of armies, fighting for the safety of the nation but ended up being murdered by the same nation he was protecting. Meanwhile, she was Shi Nian, his little mute maidservant who followed him to his death.
In her past life, she couldn’t say any word. This life, she wanted to use every chance she have to tell him,
“It’s you. It has always been you.”
Alchemilla mollis—a little plant with frothy lime-green summer flowers and neatly pleated apple-green, fan-shaped leaves which persisted all season. Different from roses which bloomed in multiple colors with wide gorgeous petals, luring attention and adoration, Alchemilla mollis was often overlooked by gardeners. It grew as ground cover in shade or beneath roses.
Shi Nian was like Alchemilla mollis. She was invisible, taciturn and introverted. Yet, whenever he turned around, he would always find her there. She was humble, gentle, docile and mild. But no matter how much he pushed her away, no matter how harsh he was, no matter how despicable he became, she never left.
Just like Alchemilla mollis.
Slowly, she grew and rooted inside his heart. Until one day, he found that he was unable to live without her anymore.
