Interestingly enough, the episode started with everyone gathered around the dinner table to enjoy Long Tai’s latest delicacies, not following up with how Long Tian He had returned already.
While they were enjoying Long Tai’s dishes, they were also talking about how Xiao Xiang’s business was taking off on a good start. Lao Tu pointed out that it had to do with their distribution of flyers. Xiao Xiang didn’t forget to thank everyone for their efforts. She even sent Lao Tu some extra “gift”, which caused him to feel quite embarrassed. Not only that but Ah Pan Jie was also happy that Ah Lun and Ah Xiang were so hardworking of recent. That wasn’t the biggest moment because they soon realized (through Long Shou Cheng’s disclosure) that Long Tai had used this meal as a chance to cheer Ren Mei on. Touched, Ren Mei didn’t know what to say. Yet Long Tai dissolved the moment by telling everyone to try the foods and give him some feedback. The funniest thing was seeing how the others were placing all the drumsticks on Ren Mei’s rice bowl, causing it to be overflowed with drumsticks. Luckily, Long Tai told the others to take it off, considering how much there were. So they resumed the meal in a merriment mood.
On the day of Ren Mei’s ballet competition event, various parties were seen around the auditorium. As Long Shou Cheng glimpsed the place, he questioned Lao Tu about Long Tai/Tian He and Ah Pan Jie’s whereabouts. Lao Tu had said that Tian He would be arriving later since he had to go somewhere, while Ah Pan Jie had to tend to the soup pot before she could leave. Upon spotting Grandma Zhao, Long Shou Cheng was a bit worried but didn’t make his move. What was even more surprising was seeing Wen Zi arriving at the event, considering how she exuded enough hostility toward Ren Mei for Ren Mei to stay away from her. (Even if Ren Mei wanted to seek her out, Ren Mei was too busy of recent regarding practice to tend to the matter.)
Yet what was even more blood-boiling was how Wen Zi had arrived at backstage to tell Ren Mei that she wasn’t giving up just yet. Wen Zi went on further by saying that she was just going away for a while to let Long Tai know that he couldn’t go on without her. That wasn’t the worst bit of the encounter because when Ren Mei tried to explain to Wen Zi, Wen Zi shoved her. Even if Wen Zi didn’t know about Ren Mei’s leg injury previously, shoving Ren Mei like that was already going WAY over. And what was she trying to do? It was before Ren Mei’s performance, saying those things would cause her to lose concentration. So what will come of Ren Mei’s performance really? It wasn’t just about shining on the stage, but it was a chance for Ren Mei to prove to her grandma that she could do it.
As for Long Tai, he was seen at a jewelry shop. He was there to pick up his order. Yes, he had sent the picture he snapped of Ren Mei’s necklace in to make a duplicate. Or at least try to create the other shoe to complete the pair. That was the reason for the delay in going to the venue of Ren Mei’s performance.
And the previous scene of Tian He returning wasn’t the ending of the other episode. It was seriously deceiving us with going ahead and throwing in that particular scene. (Yet if observed more carefully by flipping back to the previous episode, the outfits didn’t match so it made sense it wasn’t linked to the previous episode’s event.) The scene actually occurred after Long Tai left the jewelry store and was on his way to the competition event. So his comment with the day being a good day was seriously ironic.
The disaster began with Ah Pan Jie on the way out of the door and was ready to go to the venue. She spotted Tian He walking in with his luggage. Confused, she asked him why he was coming back to the house for and was even carrying that luggage. He replied with a sharp tone, stating that it was his house so why couldn’t he return? She said that no one was around–to which he was more than confused as to why. She soon helped him carry the luggage inside and told him about where everyone was, cheering Ren Mei on, etc. Seriously, he looked more than confused than pissed off at this point. (Yet Mike’s acting was seriously good since he was able to create the vibe with Tian He’s cold exterior and Long Tai’s sunshine feeling. Well, he should be more than pro with the ‘mean’ persona already, considering some of his past roles, but it was a change with his sunshine personality.) So after Ah Pan Jie placed the luggage to one side, she shoved Tian He outside, lol. He was so confused, asking “What?” It was hilarious yet his nasty side would come out soon after he learned of what happened, right?
Back to the competition, it wasn’t Ren Mei’s turn yet but it was going quite smooth with some of the other performances. Backstage, Ren Mei was experiencing nerves. She took a peek outside and realized that Long Tai/Tian He wasn’t there yet. Meanwhile, Long Tai was still on his way there, hoping to make it in time for her performance. So he was in a race with Ah Pan Jie and Tian He at this point. Yet would it make sense that Long Tai would arrive first? Since he did get a head start at that one stoplight–with Tian He heading home and he went straight to the venue. Anyway, on top of the nervousness, Ren Mei realized that her grandma was even present.
Ren Mei’s performance finally came yet Long Tai was still nowhere to be seen. She tried to encourage herself on and the performance went nicely for the most part. Even her instructor was seen proud of her moves. It wasn’t until somewhere in the middle that she lost her balance. (Yes, that leg injury had caused it. AND Wen Zi’s shove had made it even worse at this point.) It was at that point that almost everyone gasped. Even Grandma Zhao was seen quite worried. Her instructor was holding his breath. At the most crucial moment, she remembered Long Tai’s cheer for her and continued right on, weaving some of the similar moves into the mistake to patch it up, making her instructor looking proud again. Even the others were seen quite impressed by her as well.
After all the performances, the result was finally announced. Grandma Zhao seemed indifference and got up to leave. Ren Mei seemed depressed–as usual. It wasn’t until her name was also announced that Long Shou Cheng and Lao Tu almost jumped. It was indeed a happy moment for them all. It took seconds later for Ren Mei to react with this news. Yet what made her day even more was how Ah Pan Jie and Tian He stepped in at that time. (Um…I still didn’t get why Long Tai didn’t come sooner. If they were stuck in traffic, then it would make sense, AND that would mean Ah Pan Jie’s route was less busy so they arrive before Long Tai.)
As Ah Pan Jie received the news from Lao Tu (it was hard not to since he was practically yelling at that point), she joined right in cheering Ren Mei on as Ren Mei stepped over to hug Tian He. That was also when he stopped being so confused and pushed Ren Mei out, even blurting out some sharp words. Both Ren Mei and Ah Pan Jie were shocked of Tian He’s reaction, so different from the Tian He they were living with these past few months. Yet Long Shou Cheng was able to detect right away that it was the real Tian He returning.
That was also when Long Tai stepped in. Long Tai, not realizing what was happening, walked toward them anyway as Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie’s mouth hung wide open with shock. It didn’t sink in for Long Tai yet because he was still taking out the necklace and was ready to give it to Ren Mei. He finally realized something was up until he saw everyone staring. With Ren Mei’s glare, Tian He also realized something was up and turned around to see his lookalike. That was also when Long Tai’s sunshine smile turned off, and confusion was thrown around by some people in the room. Lao Tu soon realized from Tian He’s question that he was the real Tian He. Yet the others were indeed still confused. Well, except for Long Shou Cheng, who was still staying quiet, that was.
So the face-off began. At least it was Tian He who stepped over to confront his lookalike. Long Shou Cheng finally spoke up as Long Tai struggled to explain himself, stating Long Tai’s relation to Tian He. After saying that, Long Shou Cheng stepped toward them and told them to accompany him home. Long Tai’s expression showed that he was having mixed emotions toward his twin brother at that point. Yet it was too clear that Tian He was already hating this so-called ‘twin brother’. As words traveled around town, Ren Hu was more than interested in the ‘Long Tian He lookalike’ news than his sister’s good news, like it was any more surprising that he didn’t care for his sister. Of the parties still digesting the news, only Wen Zi was seen celebrating inside.
Though Xiao Xiang was absent for the performance and had to tend to her shop, after hearing Ah Xiang and Ah Lun’s words about the twin brothers, she immediately abandoned the shop and ran back to the Long resident to check. She had stated that they had helped her in the past so she couldn’t just stand around and wait for news to travel. She had to go and check for herself. She had previously stated that it made sense with the twins incident, considering how Long Tian He had always been known to be cold and all, etc.
And now that they were home, it was only right that questions were thrown around. The answer for Tian He’s first question with hiding the ‘twins’ thing from him was because Grandma Long didn’t allow for Long Shou Cheng to say it. Then Tian He said that his grandma had passed away all these years so there were numerous opportunities for his old man to say it out. (EXACTLY!) And then Long Shou Cheng said that it was because Tian He’s health condition so he didn’t want to aggravate Tian He anymore, and he wanted to find Tian He’s mother and brother before telling. Um…okay. While the old man was talking, Tian He was seen giving his brother dagger looks. It wasn’t until Tian He said that “that woman” (referring to his mother in that term instead of ‘mom’ or something similar) had fled with some man not long after giving birth to him. (No wonder Tian He’s so bitter all these years, thanks a lot, Grandma Long! She’s actually ten times worse comparing to Grandma Zhao. Grandma Zhao’s all about ‘tough love gone wrong’ but Grandma Long’s just outright slandering others’ reputation to make herself look good.) YUP, it was Grandma Long who had affected Tian He’s views on life and his evilness all these years. (Honestly, Tian He was like Ren Hu in a way, but Grandma Zhao didn’t mean it with hurting Ren Mei at times.) Tian He then accused his old man of putting the blame on the grandma just because the grandma had already passed away. (Okay, that was honestly a sticky situation BUT this time, it was indeed true that it was the dead person’s doing.) Not being able to take it anymore with Tian He’s usage of “that woman” for calling their mother, Long Tai finally jumped in to yell at Tian He. Yet Tian He wasn’t scared (far from it), he yelled right back.
Outside, Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie were eavesdropping on the conversation while Lao Tu was trying to get Ah Pan Jie to quiet down–or they would be busted. Even Ren Mei was seen nearby, trying to check on the situation. Ah Pan Jie was scolding Lao Tu for saying that she was spouting nonsense when she talked about the twins incident previously yet it was true. All the while the two battle it out, Ren Mei was forced to remember all the times that she had encountered both–and realized she had confessed to the wrong person.
Back inside, they were still at it. Long Shou Cheng was explaining how it was because Grandma Long didn’t like his mother hence talking about her in that way. Yet Tian He stated that he believed his grandma wouldn’t hate someone without a good reason, even chanting his grandma’s mantra with how it didn’t matter with who gave birth to him, etc. OY! Very frustrating indeed but in a way, it was hard to blame him with all the years he’d been poisoned by nonsense. Long Tai jumped in again–after some quiet passed between Long Shou Cheng and Tian He–reminding Tian He how intelligent he was with his school achievements yet he didn’t know how to investigate for himself or distinguish between right and wrong yet just listened to others’ words, etc. Tian He told Long Tai that he didn’t know what had happened to him (Tian He) all these years so he (Long Tai) DID NOT have any rights to say those things. So after rattling out some more nasty words, Tian He left the scene, yelling at Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie to get out of his way.
As he walked past them, he encountered Xiao Xiang, Ah Xiang, and Ah Lun on their way in. Another battle of words ensued as he scolded at them for calling him “Tian He Ge”, etc. Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie soon came over to try and break the argument up. Xiao Xiang was already on a roll though and was about to say something else yet Ah Pan Jie mumbled a “Please” under her breath to get Xiao Xiang to stop. Ah Pan Jie tried to explain the new arrivals’ identities yet that didn’t calm Tian He down–far from it. He told Ah Pan Jie to tell “those people” to be more polite to him in the future. After he left, Ah Xiang claimed that he wanted to punch Tian He, considering how he couldn’t believe the bad attitude Tian He was far worse than rumors had it. When Xiao Xiang asked him why he didn’t punch Tian He and he replied with saying he didn’t dare to. (Hey, after all, Long Shou Cheng did agree to let him and Ah Lun stay to have a new start, so of course, he couldn’t just punch out Tian He like that–regardless of how hateful Tian He was.) And while that was going on, Ah Pan Jie was seen with a disappointed face, mumbling about how she thought Tian He had changed yet it wasn’t so after all. Lao Tu, though looking as disappointed, told Ah Pan Jie that it was only right to let Long Tai have his identity back or it wouldn’t be fair to him. After all that was cleared away, Xiao Xiang asked about Ren Mei, and it seemed like Ren Mei had disappeared already. Xiao Xiang soon went to Ren Mei’s room to comfort her yet Ren Mei didn’t care to speak up or open the door for Xiao Xiang.
As Tian He returned to his room, he found out that Long Tai’s possession had taken over his habitat so he once again tossed stuff around like the old days–when he wanted his way. And even yelled for Ah Pan Jie to come and clean up. The devil was indeed back in their lives.
Back in Long Shou Cheng’s study, he clarified with Long Tai regarding Grandma Long and how things had become of the ‘false’ stories of the twins’ mother. Long Shou Cheng also told Long Tai to be patient and it would take a while for Tian He to accept it. Yet Long Tai turned Long Shou Cheng down, stating that he only promised to stay until Tian He return because he knew his mom would want it. Now that Tian He was back, he should leave. Long Shou Cheng asked Long Tai if he still wanted to return to Japan. Long Tai said that since he wasn’t so welcomed here anyway, he might as well return to Japan. He went on to say that at least Japan has the memories of him and his mother all these years–and the family that he grew up with. Long Shou Cheng wanted Long Tai to think it over carefully, because he really wanted Long Tai to stay. He finally admitted that he was an irresponsible father and had been a failure in being a father all these years. Yet Long Shou Cheng went on to say if Long Tai–after thinking really carefully–still wanted to leave, he would respect Long Tai’s decision.
The others finally were able to see Long Tai at last–after having waited so long. Unlike his usually hot-headed self, Lao Tu was quite understanding of Long Tai’s hardships all these times, trying to pose as Tian He. Ah Xiang and Ah Lun were as understanding. Or perhaps, they were already through the worst with interacting with Tian He earlier so, of course, the apology from Long Tai was tenfold more sincere now that they heard it from him. Ah Lun was still stuck with the “Tian He Ge” yet he said “Tian Hao Ge” was weird so Long Tai jumped in to clarify that he didn’t like the name either. He told them to call him “Long Tai” instead–since it was the name that his mother called him. Soon, Ah Pan Jie was seen walking by, stating that she had to help Tian He clean up–and that she was so slow hence him tossing stuff all around. Yet Lao Tu stopped her, trying to make Long Tai feel better. But Long Tai soon interfered, stating it was all right. He understood how Tian He was feeling with someone else invading his personal space–and said if it was his situation, he would be as upset. Ah Pan Jie then promised to set up another room for Long Tai, and she even took time to add in how one person was yelling out orders to her versus another apologizing for making her do extra work–hence Lao Tu dragging her out of there before she could say anything else about the twins.
Long Tai finally got a chance to go to Ren Mei’s room and check on her. Xiao Xiang was still standing in front of Ren Mei’s room. Upon hearing his voice, Ren Mei got up and came over to the door, but she didn’t open it yet. She was just curious. Though Xiao Xiang had reminded Long Tai of Ren Mei ‘treating Long Tai like Tian He’ the whole time (aka the mistaken identity like everyone) and it was normal that Ren Mei was going through a ‘confused’ phase (again like everyone else), but she also cheered Long Tai on. After Xiao Xiang left, Long Tai was about to knock on Ren Mei’s door–to which she seemed to want him to–yet he hesitated and let his doubts took over. Indeed, Ren Mei wanted him to explain to her why he had deceived her. (ARrrrrrgggg, it was tenfold more frustrating that he just left like that. Yeah, I got it with the confidence thing at this point and also to let Ren Mei calm down a bit more, but seriously, how long are they going to drag this out?) And Ren Mei had every right to be mad at this point, not getting an answer at all, thinking that she had been conned.
That night, as everyone was restless all around, a surprise turn moved the plot forward slightly. Ren Mei, not being able to take it anymore, went to Long Tai’s room to confront him. She said she was able to understand and sympathize with the Long family’s situation and their past grudges toward one another. Yet what she wanted to know was why he didn’t clarify or say anything when she confessed to him in the cave when they were up in the mountains. Inside, he said because he liked her. Yet in reality, he replied it with not wanting her to be disappointed. She misunderstood the comment as wanting to play with her feelings. He finally got up from his place and said that he didn’t want to either and it was really torturing to pose as Tian He, etc. She mistook that comment even further, thinking that it had been hard for him to pose as Tian He and pretend to like her, etc. (Seriously, can’t blame her for misunderstanding because his words seemed to imply so instead of what he wanted to say. Those words were indeed too vague.) He immediately clarified it wasn’t so but she told him he longer had to suffer posing as Tian He so he was free of her, slamming the door in his face.
The next morning, round 2 commenced for the twins. Tian He had given Long Tai an intimidating look before turning to leave yet Long Tai said he wanted to talk to Tian He. He told Tian He how their lives (Long Tai and his mother’s that was) were all these years. He even mentioned how their mother often prepared 2 portions at dinner time. He didn’t understand why before but now he understood. Tian He didn’t care for the words and thought Long Tai was trying to brag about how much their mother loved Long Tai. Yet Long Tai clarified that he wasn’t. He was just saying that their mother had been thinking of Tian He all these years. Yet Tian He continued to call their mother “that woman” and also triggered Long Tai’s moods. Tian He went on to say that “that woman” was Long Tai’s mother, not his. The conversation went back to how Tian He was saying that aside from his grandma, he doesn’t believe there would be anyone who treats him well. Long Tai said that Tian He was quite pitiful, not caring if that would upset Tian He even more. Tian He reacted by saying like Long Tai had never done wrong before. That was when Lao Tu walked by and said it was good that they were both present. (Really?) According to Lao Tu, Wen Zi was there to look for Long Tai.
Outside, Ah Pan Jie was tending to Wen Zi and was asking if Wen Zi was returning to Japan hence looking for Long Tai to say goodbye. That had surprised Wen Zi, considering how she was so happy and celebrating that it was finally the day when Long Tai ‘return to her side’ as it were. So her answer to Ah Pan Jie with how she was going to return to Japan with Long Tai, which sparked a major outcry from Ah Pan Jie. In fact, that had caused Ren Mei to look worried as well, even if she was still upset over Long Tai’s vague response and had cried most of the night last night. Upon seeing Long Tai, Wen Zi–of course–walked right over and embraced him, claiming how happy it was that the day finally came. Ren Mei finally understood Wen Zi’s words about warning Ren Mei to distance herself from Long Tai, misunderstanding that those two were a couple. Long Tai finally reacted, pushing Wen Zi out slightly yet he responded that he would return to Japan with Wen Zi. That was when Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie jumped in to interrupt, wanting to talk it over among themselves before resuming. (LOL!) That was when Ren Mei dodged out of the way.
So Lao Tu and Ah Pan Jie moved to a corner of the room to talk it over. Lao Tu was asking what to do now and Ah Pan Jie responded with “Of course we have to prevent Long Tai from leaving.” So they were saying since Long Tai came, not only was their boss’ mood turning good but also their business SO they couldn’t allow Long Tai to leave. However, they were forced to stop again, because they couldn’t find a reason to keep Long Tai there. Yet Lao Tu soon thought of something. It was indeed clever because even Ah Pan Jie looked confident enough. (What was it? Just have to watch to see.) It was indeed quite clever with how Lao Tu eased into it. LOL! And then they even steered it to the fact that Wen Zi’s passport was already lost so how could she return right away. She needed time to get a new one, lol. NICE! Then Ah Pan Jie didn’t want to let Wen Zi stay there since she stated that Wen Zi would continue to pester Long Tai to return to Japan. Yet Lao Tu jumped in to patch it up by saying that Wen Zi would be a distraction hence Long Tai not being able to concentrate properly to help them with the new dishes. Even Long Tai agreed, saying that it was a bit chaotic around there with Long Tian He returning so after he took care of stuff there, he would go to the Zhao family’s hot spring resort to look for her.
Then the head of the town came to inform them that Ren Hu was outside, wanting to seek justice. So they were forced to go out and face Ren Hu and see what else he was up to. (Didn’t Grandma Zhao say she was going to take care of it? Great, like it was news that he would go behind her back and do stuff.) Anyway, Long Tai said all it was because of him so whatever it was that Ren Hu wanted, it was between them. Before Ren Hu was able to say anything, Wen Zi jumped out, saying she won’t let him make trouble for Long Tai. Things moved toward another interesting point as Ren Hu pondered why Wen Zi was there already (since it was still so early) because that was when Tian He stepped out. He quickly delivered a taunting remark about how he was wondering who could be disrupting the peace at this time of the morning (totally aiming it at Ren Hu). As Ren Hu inspected the twins, he also took the time to ‘pretend to seek justice for his sister’. Ren Mei had indeed stepped out since she had overheard earlier about her brother coming over. Ren Mei said that they (the Long family) didn’t mean to deceive them on purpose–to which Ren Hu snapped back at her, questioning her about taking the Long family’s side. It was then that Tian He delivered another one of his attacks, saying that the Zhao family should be thankful that they (the Long family) were willing to let such useless person stay (i.e. Ren Mei). That was when Long Tai yelled at Tian He for talking about Ren Mei in that way, and Tian He said Long Tai didn’t have any right to stop him for saying it. Long Tai was about to say how much Ren Mei cares for Tian He yet Ren Mei yelled out to stop him.
It was then that Long Shou Cheng finally stepped out to admit wrong. He asked Ren Hu what Ren Hu wanted at that point. And as Ren Hu was about to deliver his orders, Grandma Zhao arrived at the scene–to much of Ren Hu’s surprise. She reminded him of what she told him last night. After chiding Ren Hu in a low whisper, she turned to Long Shou Cheng. He, of course, repeated his wrongdoings and said he didn’t know how to explain to every one of their family’s situation after realizing the person appearing during that dragon dance competition was actually Long Tai hence causing trouble for everyone. He even apologized to Ren Mei. Grandma Zhao accepted the apology and said she didn’t want to pursue the matter anymore. Ren Hu, of course, jumped in to object. Yet Grandma Zhao stated that Ren Hu indeed got beaten by one of the members of the Long family. Not to mention how good the Long family had treated Ren Mei after she arrived and had helped her change all the while staying there. Therefore, she said that they didn’t need to compensate or do anything else to make it up. After hearing those words, not only were the members of the Long family happy, but the townspeople were also cheering Grandma Zhao on for her understanding nature. Only Ren Hu was seen still very much upset upon seeing Tian He leaving the scene with a taunting smile. Grandma Zhao’s only request was to let Ren Mei go home. And Ren Mei only wanted a little time to pack. Grandma Zhao agreed and said she would send Lao Zhang (their driver) over to pick Ren Mei up.
As Ren Mei packed and was thinking of the event earlier, Long Tai entered. He looked quite heavyhearted watching her. She didn’t realize he was there until she turned around. Yet she chose to ignore him. That didn’t work because some of the items she was carrying got dropped. Those were her ballet shoes and some roll of paper. They both rushed to pick up her ballet shoes, causing their hands to come into contact. She withdrew her hand first after some silent staring between them, and he got the message, letting go so she could pick up her items and leave.
Along the hallway, Ren Mei bumped into Tian He. He, like his usual self, uttered some mean words, saying it was good that she was leaving so it was less troublesome around there. He then went on to say that he didn’t even recognize her at first and wouldn’t even dream of it, considering how he thought she would be fat all her life. He didn’t realize she could become this current person. Ren Mei didn’t just take it in this time, unlike her past self, but had responded with saying he was the same as in the past, always saying mean things to hurt others. Yet he said he didn’t want to say nice words to people he didn’t care for. (Wow, when in the world did he say nice things to people? That day seemed so foreign to everyone present.) Ren Mei then said that Tian He didn’t need to say nice things to her since that wouldn’t be the Tian He she knew since little. Then she left. He turned around to look at her. Yet what was he thinking at that point? Like he would suddenly change his thinking, but why was he staring after her for? Thinking she was still dumb as always? Or surprised that she was able to defend herself now?
Outside, Ren Mei was saying goodbye to the others and thanking them for taking care of her since the day she arrived. Ah Pan Jie looked quite depressed seeing Ren Mei leave. Even Xiao Xiang was saying how they were worried about Ren Mei going home and being bullied by her grandma and brother again. Ren Mei said that she wasn’t like before and she will try to communicate with her grandma and brother more; and that it was her actual home so she had to return. Long Shou Cheng soon stepped up to apologize to Ren Mei for deceiving her the whole time. She didn’t mind, saying that these past months have been some happy times for her. Lao Tu spoke up then, saying that even if he didn’t like her brother yet he treated her like family so he told her to return from time to time to visit them – to which she nodded. When it was Ah Pan Jie’s turn to say something, she wasn’t able to. She was too busy crying. Things didn’t improve with the crying even after Ren Mei stated that Ah Pan Jie was like her mother and hugged her. While that was going on, Ah Xiang told Ren Mei if anyone would dare to bully Ren Mei in the future, she should tell him so he could beat them up. Ah Lun and Xiao Xiang each told her to continue pursuing her dream and become an excellent dancer. It was indeed a touching goodbye scene. The party didn’t break up until Lao Zhang reminded her that Grandma Zhao was waiting for her.
As the others were saying goodbye to Ren Mei outside, Long Tai was still sitting at the exact spot that Ren Mei left him. He was thinking of how he only wanted to protect her yet had caused her to hate him in the end. Yet he soon realized what he should’ve done. So he sprang up and chased after her car. Calling out the nickname he once gave her, it seemed useless. But she had heard him and turned around at last.
