"There are two people I'm looking for in my life, " he started in his mellow voice as he gazed at a jade pendant in his hand and went on, "One whom I love the most." His gentle gaze at the pendant turned towards a dagger at the other side and his gaze hardened, "And the other one whom I hate the most in my life."
Looking at the jade pendant and the silver dagger, her heart shook. 'How am I supposed to tell you that you love and hate the same person... ME!' Her heart felt prickly at the thought.
There are plenty of things that break not just a heart but a person as a whole.
Some people get broken by love and some by family. But she was broken by life itself. And the last part of her was broken by her only best friend.
She left her clan to discover the world but she forgot something her grandfather once told her, 'The world outside is a scary place. It's filled with people who would want to befriend you only to devour you alive. People like us are an anomaly.

To grow stronger, she seized as much power as she could by Ruling Europe under the disguise of a man- Lord Alev Knight. But now, she's forced to come back to China where she buried her memories along with herself over a decade ago.
What will happen when those buried painful memories will come to haunt her again. Will she choose the path to destroy the people who betrayed her or someone will alter her idea of revenge? And what exactly pushed her to live with multiple identities? What made her disguise herself as a man? Will she be able to find the hidden truths of her own existence? Or she'll be buried herself with those truths?
Xiao Zhiren left China to live in America with his mother and his younger brother after her mother found out about his father's mistress. Now, he's back in China to find the answers that were left unknown as he watched his mother being murdered before him.
Will he be able to find the enemies wearing the masks of friends? Or he'll have to wear a mask himself?
'I can conceive death but betrayal is not allowed.' She had left those words behind for him. Will he be able to find the person who left him with a promise to come back? Or like every promise, he'll be forced to believe that promises are only made to break you?
