Gu Hong Jian practically lived for Lin Si Ze.

Then one day, she died.


Afterwards, she found herself as a ghost—incapable of leaving Lin Si Ze.




Summary on SSB:

The first time they met, he was a downtrodden prince everybody bullied whilst she was a small palace maid responsible for washing the clothes of the people in the palace.

Twenty years of companionship; he is the only one capable of influencing her emotions. For him, she is willing to immerse her hands in the blood of others, to help him rule this world.

Even though she wasn’t the one he loved, and she wasn’t the one he married, she insisted on remaining by his side, aiming to become the one and only woman capable of standing by his side whilst he held court and the one and only woman in his harem – even if doing so would cause her to get insulted by the entire world.

However, that person whom she loved so much, that person for whom she committed all sorts of preposterous acts for – wanted her to die.

He said, “In this lifetime, I don’t wish to see you ever again!”

She returned to him as a spirit, yet he begged for another lifetime together.

“If we have another lifetime together, I want you to love me and respect me from a very young age, and help me clear all the obstacles standing in my way. You would be forced to watch me love one, and marry another – but both of them would not be you. You must love me so crazily and so deeply that everybody knows about it, and yet you would never be able to truly receive my entire love and affection. On innumerable occasions, you would be misunderstood by me, and hurt by me. The only few tears you shed in your entire lifetime would be for me, and ultimately you would have to die for me. Even after you die, you would not be allowed to rest in peace – instead, you would transform into a spirit and return to my side… Only if you do all these, would you be able to compensate me for what I have done in this lifetime.”

Loving a person, even though it’s misguided, one insists on remaining in error; it’s as though one entered into a dream one morning, and remains unable to gain enlightenment even till death.

  1. I have been waiting for this novel to be translated and I m do happy right now ?????❤❤❤❤❤

    Thank you for your hard work and hope you have a great Christmas and Happy New Years ????????

  2. What kind of worst kind of male lead is this? What he says in the description is like saying “I want you to live through hell a whole livetime.” Suicide is better then this…

  3. Summary doesn’t make sense. She did all that and yet, he still curse her to go through all that again? So, is it that she loves him, but he’s too much of an ass to see it?

    1. no, Thats what she said to him when he begged for another life with her. She said, that for him to have the right to have a lifetime with her, he has to do and suffer everything that she suffered for him.

    1. Ah, I will, but real life is really taking up a lot of my time. The next chapter is half-finished at the moment actually…

    1. Post

      Next chapter is fully translated actually
      Just waiting on my editor/TLC to go through it all
      Unrepentant is a difficult novel to translate into English Orz

  4. Hello, thanks for continuing this story. Its so beautifully translated, depicting the pain and anguish of the FL, the confusion and despair of the ML and the seemingly inevitable tragic ending of their companionship.
    Thanks for your efforts
