According to the statement, the author will take advantage of the pause to prepare the new narrative arc of the work, which will resume until July 1, 2021.

But it is lonely at the top and each fell in love with the other. There is only one major problem in the way of loving happiness – they are both too proud to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the love competition!
