Synopsis[edit]

Ji Qing Chuan and Liang Yi Xun have been best friends since childhood. When Qing Chuan's family decided to migrate to the United States, Qing Chuan gave Yi Xun a bottle with lavender seeds. They promised to reunite after ten years, when the lavender seeds in the bottle would finally be in bloom.

After ten years, Qing Chuan fulfilled his promise and returned to Taiwan as the now popular singer, Leo. Yi Xun and Qing Chuan started to rekindle old feelings, until Maggie and Xiao Tong entered the picture and tried to destroy their relationship, adding to Yi Xun's heart ailment that can cause her death.

Summary[edit]

Since her birth, Ah Xun (Tammy Chen), as well as her sister Yicheng, have been suffering from a heart disease which makes them unable to run or do a lot of activities that other children do. Because of this she is picked on by all her schoolmates. Her only friend is a boy named Qing Chuan. Always together, Ah Xun is saddened when Qing Chuan tells her that he and his family are moving to America. Unwilling to never see each other again, Qing Chuan gives her a glass bottle filled with a piece of lavender as a token that he will never forget her, and promises her that he will meet up with her again ten years later on Ah Xun's 20th birthday.

Ten years pass and Ah Xun still has not forgotten her first love Qing Chuan, even though her boss's son Xiao Tong is in love with her, and she waits for the day when she can see him again. Qing Chuan returns to Taiwan, but this time known as the famous singer named Leo. Leo has not forgotten about her either, and after a few misunderstandings, the two of them meet and start a relationship.
