So they had to seek out Ji Shi Cheng at long last for help. Well, it was some sort of collaboration, not totally siding with him. The reason why Ping An even went with this bizarre, risky move was because of how she wanted to save the employees at the restaurant. Ji Shi Cheng asked why he should help Ping An. Of course, the old man wasn’t going to dive in just because his son and daughter backed Ping An up. He needed much more than that. Before Ping An spoke up though, Huo Ying stopped her by placing a hand on her shoulder. He jumped in to answer in her place, saying how they have to seek revenge since they’d lost to Xi Le so badly. Ji Shi Cheng pointed out if he were to seek revenge, he would have to deal with Huo Ying first, considering how it was partially Huo Ying’s fault that he didn’t get all the information. So after scolding his son, Ji Shi Cheng turned to ask Ping An how would it be better that she becomes the chairwoman. After some struggling of trying to conjure up an answer, Li Sha jumped in to say that regardless it would be better to have Ping An as a chairwoman since she’s easier to bully, lol. (Realistic but the old man liked the answer, lol.) Ji Shi Cheng’s question was asking Ping An if she was sure that Bai Ming Li was her mother, adding that Xi Le was more like Bai Ming Li. Ping An said that she had her mother’s words as well as some other proofs. Though she didn’t have the real will and the DNA proofs, she said the main point was to cast doubts among the public of Xi Le’s identity. Ji Shi Cheng thought it was interesting so he agreed to help her. However (yup, there’s always a term), she must marry his son. That was when Li Sha jumped in to protest. Ji Shi Cheng said that it was a good way to resolve his past conflict with Bai Ming Li as well, having both of their children marry, etc. As Ping An attempted to dodge, Huo Ying slipped a hand around her shoulder, grinning happily and telling his old man that he’d actually proposed to Ping An already and she’d agreed. Of course, Ji Shi Cheng was shocked yet he was also glad that things were moving on a positive path.

So Ye Chen had no choice but to leave upon hearing those words and Ping An had to chase after him. (Probably after their meeting adjourned.) She told him to slow down yet ended up bumping into him (literally) when he finally stopped? Funny. So yeah. She was asking him if he would be upset when she posed as Huo Ying’s fiancee. He said because of the ‘big picture’, he couldn’t do anything anyway but to accept it. She chided him, saying how he was jealous yet refused to admit it. What got to him was how she said he wasn’t ‘man’ enough. That was when he grabbed her and pin her to a fence. Alarmed, she called him “Da Se Lang” (大色狼) again, lol. YUP, indeed it had been a long time since she called him that. So he told her to teach him how he could be the so-called ‘man’ that she was using the term so loosely. She looked scared but ended up giving him a kiss on the cheek before dodging out of his embrace. She called him dummy before running off. He didn’t mind, he finally smiled.

Then the plan of restoring Ping An’s identity was in place. Huo Ying and Li Sha directed them through some steps of preparations before they would face the other side for a showdown. First, they have to seek out Doctor Lu to help with acquiring a copy of the DNA results. Then they have to spread the information of Ping An being Bai Ming Li’s real daughter (via paparazzi) and let the rumors spread far and wide. As long as there were talks, it would reach many ears and eventually reach the shareholders as well, casting doubts. They also have to hold a press conference to bring out even more proofs to convince the public of the “rumors.” What got Ji Shi Cheng impressed was how Ping An was able to bring out her own set of proofs, like the letter her mother wrote to her as well as the cassette player with the tape of her parents singing together. It was worth brownie points since even if paperwork could be faked, but the voices couldn’t be. And because of that press conference, one of Ping An’s father’s friends was able to track her down. However, he didn’t get to meet up with her yet since the lady boss at the flower shop thought it was one of those scams again so had tossed his card away.

A major development in the plot soon took place. Zi Wen was reassuring Xi Le about the whole situation blowing over at the moment. When he was taking a shower and she was cleaning up in his room, she spotted how Hei Zai had called him. She deleted the text message which Hei Zai sent after the failed call. She ended up showing up at the meeting place and soon discovered of Zi Wen’s plot–right from the start with how he was trying to win her heart and thus aiding his revenge plot. Well, Hei Zai wanted money before he could disclose more details about Zi Wen’s plot. She couldn’t pass the opportunity up so she ended up learning the full truth from Hei Zai. (Yet I thought Zi Wen had asked her in the past about using her and if she was able to accept him still and she had dodged and replied with how Wei Zhen would forgive him. OR was it because she thought he loved her and only used her when he didn’t have an alternative?) And the answer soon came when Zi Wen came to the hospital to tend to her. (Yes, she fainted out in the streets so she was sent to the hospital. Ping An actually came first but it was because she was on Xi Le’s contact list. Ping An only stayed a bit with explaining how they’d called her, not that she wanted to bother Xi Le, etc.) Xi Le finally confronted Zi Wen and asked him if he’d loved her. The traumatic moment was too much, the doctors and nurses have to come and give her a sedative shot to calm her down first.

Back to Ye Chen and Ping An. They were at Lawyer Huang’s office again. Lawyer Huang explained that since they have the DNA results now, they could fight back, etc and at least take some of the money for Ping An. But the case could take a while. Ping An didn’t want to fight for the money, because she’d saved some and also have the money that the head of the orphanage gave her (since that was the money Bai Ming Li gave to the head of the orphanage). Ye Chen was surprised that she was that rich. He wanted her to treat him to some big meals and possibly get gifts. She said the money was for her tuition since she wanted to study overseas, and said she’d told Xiao San to check on the schools for her. She said to wait until all these dramas pass, she would get to fulfill that wish. Then she added about wanting to find a blond hair, blue eyes boyfriend. That was when Ye Chen told her to repeat it once more. So while they were pinching each other’s cheeks and joking around, Lawyer Huang cleared his throat. LOL! He apologized for interrupting them but he had something to say. They finally let go of each other’s cheeks and sat up straight again. Ping An even apologized for their behaviors (lol). What Lawyer Huang wanted to say was he have a document about a certain piece of land, and the inheritor wasn’t of the last names “Bai” or “Xie”. Lawyer Huang said it was probably Ye Chen’s. They were indeed shocked but was soon given the paper to read over.

After leaving the law office, Ye Chen and Ping An went to check out the location indicated in the papers. It was actually Ye Chen and Wei Zhen’s old home. Ye Chen had thought that this place would be non-existence by now. He then told her of how he and Wei Zhen spent time there, playing and all until their grandma came to get them to come in for dinner, etc. Through what Lawyer Huang said earlier, this place was bought by Bai Ming Li after Wei Zhen’s accident. She also managed to buy it over at a high price–in order to save it from being acquired and use for some new developmental project. She had used Ye Chen’s name throughout as well. Ping An asked if Ye Chen had forgiven her mother already. Ye Chen said that it wasn’t her mother’s fault and that she must have known who he was from the start hence taking him in and trusting him so much. To him, she was a teacher and also a good friend. He even disclosed that he had wanted to leave Ping An so he wouldn’t let his sister down. Yet Ping An hugged him, saying that he can’t leave. He reassured her he wasn’t going to leave. (Not anymore after the whole clarifications and all.) He went on to say how he still owed her mother a “thank you” and “sorry.” Thank you because of her mother that he came to know her, and sorry because he’d lost the will so he wasn’t able to protect her and help her. Ping An told him it wasn’t important since what they’d have now was already enough.

So then came the day Xi Le decided to play ‘detective’ again and went through Zi Wen’s possessions in his apartment. This time, she attacked his safe. (The reason why he wasn’t around because she’d faked sickness and told her assistant to tell him to take care of some meeting.) So what did she find this time? The will. The real will. That was when she went crazy and almost ripped up the will. Yet she didn’t. She blamed him for not tearing it up on spot but had to let her find it. Regardless of how cruel the truth was to her, she ended up deciding on returning it to Ping An. When she was trying to flag down a Taxi, he showed up and tried to persuade her into giving it to him. She no longer cared for his sweet words. He finally resorted to the yelling and tried to gain some power over her. That was when she started running–and also taken a fall as they reached the middle of the street with the dividing strip protecting them from the traffic. Yet the papers had flown out of her hands. He asked for her well being yet had chosen to go after the papers. It was too important. That was when a car came along, but only she saw it since she was the only paying attention and he was just too focused on retrieving the papers. She reacted quickly and pushed him out of the way. Though the car was able to stop, she had already crashed over and fainted. He no longer cared for the papers and only tended to her, breaking down completely. The reason for the change of heart was because of how he’d seen Wei Zhen like how it happened with the accident years ago. (It was too fake though that the driver didn’t get out to ask or NO one stopped or crowd around to check out the situation.)

Soon, at the hospital, the driver who had driven them to the hospital excused himself. Zi Wen apologized for disturbing him since they were the ones in the wrong. (Yes, that driver was the same driver who almost hit Xi Le but it wasn’t his fault, considering how they were the ones running around in oncoming traffic.) The driver returned the papers that Zi Wen had abandoned and left. Zi Wen had the papers now, he could just destroy it and be done. Yet he didn’t do it. Not this time. He went out by the hospital entrance, thinking and telling Wei Zhen that it had been so long and he was exhausted. Yes, he was ready to let go. He realized that what Wei Zhen had tried to tell him was finally coming through, considering how Xi Le had almost lost her life trying to stop him from his madness as well.

What did Zi Wen do next? He told Ye Chen to meet up at the old house. It was now Ye Chen’s property. Zi Wen didn’t realize it until Ye Chen told him, and what Bai Ming Li had done. (Perhaps what many people do not know of Bai Ming Li was how she was fierce with the business wars yet wasn’t as cold-blooded as a human being. Not completely when it came to that accident with how she thought it was her fault that Wei Zhen had died. Or was she practicing those mantras about, “It’s not personal, it’s business”?) Anyway, Zi Wen admitted that he’d been by Bai Ming Li all these years yet didn’t know the other side of her, a possible good side. Ye Chen reminded Zi Wen of what Ye Nai Nai used to say, “When one uses the eyes to look at things, one could only see the shadow of one’s own heart.” He went on to say that he and Zi Wen had made the same mistake. Zi Wen finally turned around to face Ye Chen, saying that the difference between them was how Ye Chen was willing to admit of his mistake right away yet he, himself, wasn’t able to do that. Zi When finally brought out the will and gave it to Ye Chen, telling him to pass it to Ping An. Ye Chen went insane (again) and scolded Zi Wen for being despicable. Yes, Zi Wen admitted that and many more that he’d learned over the years. Ye Chen pondered why Zi Wen gave it to them for, asking if Zi Wen was trying to seek their forgiveness. Yet Zi Wen said he wasn’t asking for their forgiveness, but only wanted to fulfill Xi Le’s wish of giving this to Ping An. He left but turned back to tell Ye Chen that after he’d faced the past places and things all these years, even refused to see, listen, or think about matters. Yet he finally knew after Xi Le’s accident what Wei Zhen wanted to tell him all along. Then he left for real this time.

Though having the partial will already and how they would be able to vote for a new chairperson, Ping An withdrew the day of the voting. Ji Shi Cheng wasn’t around yet Huo Ying and Li Sha were shocked of Ping An’s decision when Ye Chen told them. Li Sha left in a huff after saying that if there was anything in the future, don’t call her. Ye Chen’s job wasn’t just to deliver the news to them of Ping An’s decision, but also to return Huo Ying’s stocks back to him. Ping An had already filled out the papers so it was on there. (Yes, the reason why Ji Shi Cheng wanted Ping An to marry his son was because he needed to transfer Huo Ying’s stocks to Ping An to have some ground in the company. If he didn’t have some guarantee, he wouldn’t take the risks.)

Later, Ye Chen was seen sitting around thinking. Ping An came over to disrupt him (lol). He first wanted to scold her for her decision yet seeing her so happy, he didn’t want to anymore. She said she wasn’t suitable for it anyway and said that Xi Le was more qualified. Yes, she didn’t want to join the battle in the first place but had done it for the employees. Yet now? Since she’d already have the talk with Xi Le in the hospital and all, they’d somehow reached an understanding–with how Xi Le had already apologized to her for the whole matter, she didn’t want to fight with Xi Le for the chairperson position. Surprisingly, according to Ye Chen, Zi Wen and Xi Le weren’t at the meeting either. Yet Xi Le had won in the end. Possibly because of how she was already experienced with the education she’d had, etc. After all the serious talk about the other matter, Ping An said that she’d gone to see the employees at the restaurant/kitchen area and all was good. She said she wanted to say goodbye before she left. He asked about her decision and the progress of the paperwork. She said Xiao San had already found a school, but she still needed to wait for the passports, etc. He asked her if she was coming back. She asked him if he was going to wait for her. He said he would but don’t let him wait for so long, because he feared she would get lost–considering how big the outside world was.

As for Zi Wen, he had definitely repented and was working his way back into Xi Le’s heart. Yet she was too heart-broken. She couldn’t trust him anymore. So he needed to try harder.

Back to the flower shop, Ye Chen and Ping An went to visit the lady boss. Ping An was resigning. They exchanged some more words before the lady boss told Ping An to come back soon or someone would snatch Ye Chen up, lol. Joking aside, the lady boss said she would miss Ping An a lot. After they were gone, Ping An’s father’s friend came again, asking for Ping An. It wasn’t until Ye Chen and Ping An returned (because Ping An had forgotten something) that Ping An finally get to meet the other person. He had called her “Mi Bao” so she was shocked, not recalling him at all. Not yet.

Ping An finally came to the Bai resident to retrieve her mother’s belongings. Or at least whatever it was that she could take with her. Xi Le tossed the box toward her before giving her a scolding marathon about what Bai Ming Li had done to her, and over the fact that Bai Ming Li and Ping An didn’t consider her feelings–or asked for her permission. She even went to the extreme of snatching Ping An’s necklace up (breaking the chain, dang that girl was indeed strong) and picking on how she was only given some random necklace while Ping An received sentimental items. Ping An wanted to apologize but Xi Le didn’t give her a chance. Xi Le still stuck with Bai Ming Li being her mother and left the scene. (Honestly, it was Bai Ming Li’s doings, NOT Ping An. Why was she scolding? OKAY, I got it that she was really, really, really upset and it made sense, BUT she’d been attacking Ping An for a while now. It’s getting really, really repetitive and tiring. Not to mention how petty Xi Le appeared, considering how much she kept implying they were sisters in the past and how Ping An was willing to share her father with Xi Le. Yet now? She could burst out at Bai Ming Li all she wants, but Ping An? Like Ping An was in on the schemes too or something.) Anyway, the box that Xi Le tossed down to the ground, saying it was Ping An’s consisted of the wedding gown her mother left for her, the letter, and her family picture. So after Xi Le was done scolding Ping An and left, it was seen she was actually crying. Was that for herself or not really wanting to go into the whole conflict with Ping An?

Meanwhile, Ye Chen was out investigating the flower bouquet. He was still searching for the flower shop, trying to figure out who the sender of the flowers was. His trip wasn’t unfruitful. He not only found the shop but also found the real sender of the flowers. Definitely not Zi Wen. It was Bai Ming Li. Indeed, it was a big surprise. Since he had expected it to be Zi Wen. He even started out the question with if the person who had requested the orders of flowers to Wei Zhen’s grave was a young gentleman, etc. Yet the person at the front desk responded that it wasn’t. She soon looked at her log to verify how Bai Ming Li had requested the orders to be delivered at different intervals. When Bai Ming Li was asked if she was Wei Zhen’s family member, she responded that she was only representing Wei Zhen’s brother (who was at a very far away place hence not being able to do it himself) in buying the flowers and having it sent to Wei Zhen’s grave. Upon learning of Bai Ming Li being the person responsible for sending flowers all these years, Ye Chen left the store and pondered–as he walked along the street–why Bai Ming Li had done that. He wondered if it was her way of making up for her past wrong, and even pondered if Bai Ming Li had known all along of Ye Chen’s identity as Wei Zhen’s brother. He also wanted to know if that was why she wanted to buy him over since the beginning.

Ye Chen didn’t have a chance to ponder anymore because he soon spotted Ping An sitting at a bench when he crossed the street. He asked her why she was sitting there alone. She told him she went to fetch her mother’s belongings. She showed him of the wedding gowns, the letter, the diary, pen, etc. The item she wasn’t able to figure out was the old cassette player, which seemed to be broken already. Ye Chen promised to have it fixed for her. Ping An then admitted that aside from knowing that her mother was called “Bai Ming Li”, she didn’t know anything else about her, like what music she’d liked, what was her favorite color, or what she’d liked to eat, etc. Ye Chen said that he knew more about Bai Ming Li, stating that the person she loved the most was Xie Ping An, and then he went on to say how Bai Ming Li’s taste didn’t veer much from Ping An’s. The more she listened, Ping An was able to smile again. She told him that he was too nosy for an assistant. He went into his defensive mode, lol. Yet the atmosphere turned hectic again when Ye Chen learned that Xi Le didn’t let Ping An come to Bai Ming Li’s funeral. (She didn’t tattle-tell on Xi Le, but she only said she wanted to go back to the orphanage to visit in two days and Ye Chen realized it was the day of the funeral.) Ye Chen wanted to go confront Xi Le yet Ping An stopped him. He stated he didn’t want to see Xi Le bully Ping An anymore, that it was enough already, considering how much Bai Ming Li did for Xi Le–even if she’d tricked her about the real identity. Ping An came up with more reasons to not blame Xi Le, etc. Ping An finally said that she didn’t want to show up anyway since she didn’t know all those people that were coming. He told her that he could understand how Ping An wanted to make it up to Xi Le for what happened, but it was too overboard robbing the chance of Ping An sending her mother off for the last time. After all that was said and done, Ping An said that she was hungry so she wanted to go home and eat, telling him to go home and prepare the food. (LOL, what a way to dodge, cute even if it’s so NOT a good time for it.) As she carried the box and made her way home, he pondered what he should be doing. He really wanted to help Ping An and make things return to its stability for her, so that he could leave without having to worry anymore. Though he knew Bai Ming Li didn’t do it on purpose, it was because of her that Wei Zhen had died, so he can’t let his sister down.

At the company, Xi Le expressed to Zi Wen that she wanted to return to Ping An what was Ping An’s. Yet Zi Wen managed to persuade her not to. He stated that it was for the company’s own good since Xi Le was more capable, etc.

Meanwhile, Ye Chen continued on with his investigation of the accident. The recent accident with Bai Ming Li and Xi Le, not Wei Zhen’s. He was talking to the driver. The driver said what Ye Chen asked, the cops already asked him, and his responses wouldn’t change. He claimed he didn’t know what was going on. He usually checked the car each time before leaving the residence. He wasn’t supposed to work that day yet received a call from the lady boss hence going over to do the deed. He didn’t see anyone suspicious, etc. But the piece of information that was helpful to Ye Chen was how Bai Ming Li usually take her car in for inspection regularly. Ye Chen walked around, trying to think again. He realized that it was unlikely that it was Bai Ming Li’s carelessness (of not taking the car in for regular inspection) that had caused the accident. It was too strange. When he was lost in thoughts, Ji Li Sha suddenly came up to him to tell him of some good news. She said since Bai Ming Li’s passing, he was directed to a new department, under a new boss. The title was too long, he asked her to repeat it. Then he asked who. She stated it was her. He said since Bai Ming Li wasn’t around anymore, he didn’t have any reason to be around yet she gave him another reason to leave the place. (LOL!)

When Ye Chen went to submit his resignation letter to Zi Wen, he told Zi Wen he wanted to talk with Zi Wen. So they went to the roof. Ye Chen asked about Hei Zai’s whereabouts. Zi Wen replied with the typical “I don’t know” and then returned it with how Ye Chen had Hei Zai’s phone so he should know how to find him. Ye Chen knew Zi Wen would answer like that. He then asked Zi Wen if Zi Wen had hired Hei Zai after Bai Ming Li fired him. Zi Wen returned it with how Ye Chen already formed his own conclusions so it didn’t matter how he (Zi Wen) answered. Ye Chen’s last question was had Zi Wen ever went to visit Wei Zhen’s grave since her passing. That was when Zi Wen got stumped. Ye Chen disclosed that he initially thought the person sending the flowers was Zi Wen, but it wasn’t until recently that he learned that the person sending the flowers was Bai Ming Li. That had shocked Zi Wen. Ye Chen said if Zi Wen didn’t know about that, then he didn’t even go visit Wei Zhen at all after all these years. Zi Wen reasoned that it was because he couldn’t bear it, not being able to face his pain. Ye Chen didn’t think so, he asked was it because Zi Wen was feeling guilty hence not being able to face Wei Zhen. Zi Wen faked innocent, stating he didn’t understand what Ye Chen was saying. Ye Chen’s anger had cranked up a few notches, he wanted Zi Wen to come with him to Wei Zhen’s grave and swore that he had nothing to do with it. Zi Wen shoved Ye Chen out and told Ye Chen not to make up stuff anymore, saying Ye Chen was crazy. Ye Chen knew Zi Wen was lying–and told him that. Zi Wen once again had to shove Ye Chen aside. Yet Ye Chen wasn’t attacking anymore. He told Zi Wen that from now on, Zi Wen wasn’t his brother anymore. Then he left.

Later at home, Ye Chen was apologizing to Wei Zhen again. He stated that he was wrong all along. The person responsible for Wei Zhen’s death was actually Zi Wen. He vouched once again to seek justice for her. And still later, he met up with Ping An at the orphanage. She was helping with some tasks. Soon though, they took a walk around the place. She pointed out different locations to him, as well as the tree that they wanted to put a swing in. After some more walking, Ye Chen pulled out the cassette player he had fixed already and gave it to Ping An. She played it and they were able to hear Ping An’s father’s voice. It was the song he composed for Ping An. Not only that but her mother was also singing along with her father. She was so happy to have this clip of her parents singing her song.

Then at Zi Wen’s place, Zi Wen was seen breaking down completely and drinking. Yes, somehow, somewhere in his heart, Ye Chen was the world to him. Or the last of his true friends who left him. Xi Le came over to comfort him. She said she’d overheard the conversation between the two guys already, but she was still supporting him, etc. She said she didn’t have any friends either. He outright told her that he was a murderer–and that he was responsible for Wei Zhen’s death. So in flashbacks, a full story was given with how Zi Wen told Wei Zhen he wanted to take revenge on Bai Ming Li. She didn’t want him to waste his time on revenge and torture himself. Yet he didn’t listen and went to sabotage the brake on Bai Ming Li’s car. Wei Zhen followed. She saw it all and somehow ended up jumping out in front of the car. After the flashbacks, Zi Wen told Xi Le how he’d done wrong toward Wei Zhen and Ye Chen, and that he’d wished the person who had died was him. He also said that was the reason why he didn’t dare to visit Wei Zhen at her grave. (Yes, the guilt thing.) Xi Le said he didn’t mean it. He then said all because of Bai Ming Li, he even restored to using Xi Le, would she still accept him? She responded by saying how if she was Wei Zhen, she would forgive him. And her thoughts were that since she’d already fallen for him, she would follow him anywhere–even to the Hell realm.

The day of Bai Ming Li’s funeral, interestingly and dramatically as it was, it was raining. Ping An attended. But she didn’t break the promise of showing up. She stood across the street to watch and sang her song for her mother. However, Xi Le spotted her walking along the road when her car drove by later. But before that scene was the part Xi Le had the talk with Ji Li Sha. It seemed like they weren’t best friends anymore. Both were attacking each other like insane. One mocking, the other went on the insulting route without caring. Perhaps it was because of how Xi Le had acquired the power she needed so she no longer was afraid of Ji Li Sha.

As things progressed even more, Ji Shi Cheng was definitely losing his grounds within the company. He lost to Zi Wen’s schemes. Moreover, Ji Li Sha was finally beaten by Xi Le as Xi Le had spread the rumors of her actually not Ji Shi Cheng’s real daughter, and she’d come from the orphanage. So now Ji Li Sha had lost her ground among her friends. She ended up stumbling around and bumped into Ye Chen. She pondered why the world was against her, etc. In her drunken state, she threw up on Ye Chen. Whether taking pity on her or just plain curious, Ye Chen took her home and tended to cleaning his own shirt. (The reason why Ye Chen was around the area to bump into Ji Li Sha was because he’d was asking around for information on Hei Zai’s whereabouts.)

When Ping An finally arrived home, she saw Ji Li Sha on Ye Chen’s bed and how he didn’t have his shirt on so she quickly left. Yet Ji Li Sha told her to stay, explaining to her that Ye Chen was just being nice and bringing her back there since she was drunk. She told Ping An not to get jealous over it. Ping An came back in and told Ji Li Sha that she already sobered up, she could leave. Ping An stated that she wasn’t as ‘kindhearted’ as Ye Chen. Ji Li Sha got up from the bed and was about to leave. But she ended up blurting out that Ping An should listen to her words carefully since it was the most truthful since their meeting. She said she’d treated Ping An as an enemy since little. That was when Ping An got up from her seat and told Li Sha that Li Sha was drunk. Li Sha ignored her and said she’d promised herself to defeat Ping An, but seeing how weak Ping An was, she couldn’t stand it anymore. Ping An was finally able to see the scar on Li Sha’s hand and realized Li Sha was Sha Sha. Ye Chen was also shocked by the development yet he still stood in the back to listen. Li Sha went on to say she knew Ping An and Xi Le’s bond yet she had to tell Ping An that Xi Le had changed already–and that Xi Le wouldn’t return to her side to become her good sister anymore. Ping An still refused to believe that Xi Le was turning into another Bai Ming Li (aka her fierce attitude and how she treated her enemy, etc). Li Sha went on to say that the only person who could dethrone Xi Le was Ping An, so if Ping An needed her help, she and her brother could help Ping An. Ping An said there was no reason for Li Sha to help her since Li Sha really hated her. Yet Li Sha clarified that she hated Xi Le more as of recent, lol. She finally got up and told Ping An to think it over. Before leaving, she thanked Ye Chen for his help earlier.

After Li Sha left, Ping An consulted with Ye Chen. Ping An still didn’t want to do it and didn’t know if they could trust Li Sha. Yet Ye Chen said the only way to save Xi Le was to go forward with the plan. He also said this time Li Sha was serious in helping her. Ping An said she didn’t think that Li Sha was the Sha Sha they knew in the orphanage, pondering if Xi Le knew. All of a sudden, she went all ballistic, telling him not to bring any drunk girl home anymore, except for her. (LOL! CUTE!) He laughed. But she then resumed her serious manner and asked him what he’d told Li Sha that had caused her to become a good person. He said he wasn’t going to tell her. So she pinched his cheek, not letting him drink water.

The next day at work, Ye Chen showed up to help Ping An. He even chided her for not knowing how to rest, etc. She ended up calling him “Ye Da Ma” (葉大媽) since he was becoming more and more like the head of the orphanage, lol. They didn’t get to joke for long since some of the employees from the restaurant had come to tell them some bad news. The staff got cut off once again.

When they arrived, Bai Ming Li finally told the girls of the truth and apologized to Xi Le for using her. Yet Bai Ming Li didn’t have too much time (or she thought she didn’t have any more time) hence saying that she wanted to hear Ping An call her “Mom”. After much heart pouring moments from Bai Ming Li, Ping An finally called her “Mom” and she finally closed her eyes. Ping An yelled for the doctors, etc. Then both girls were forced to get out of there so they could work.

So outside in the waiting room, both girls had their own outbursts because of the sudden change of situations and all. Ye Chen claimed that he’d known already so Ping An attacked him, asking why he didn’t tell her. He let her hit him (literally and she can so hit) and vent out her anger before grabbing her and hugging her to him, trying to comfort her. Xi Le was indeed taking it even harder, considering how she’d lost everything–or so she claimed. Yet Zi Wen comforted her by saying how she still have him, etc. Later, more waiting and they were informed that Bai Ming Li had gone into a coma. So after the doctor left, Zi Wen and Ye Chen tried to convince both girls to go home and rest. Yet both didn’t want to. Zi Wen finally convinced Xi Le to go home since he reminded her that she was injured. Ye Chen stayed put with Ping An as she forced him to tell her all the details of the story, etc. After he was done, he said his own words of comfort yet encouraged her on. He said whether she hated her mother or loved her mother, she still should hope that her mother would wake up to compensate her.

Meanwhile, Zi Wen was working his own charms toward Xi Le–even at that time. He was trying to influence her by taking his side and how he wasn’t surprised that Bai Ming Li had used Xi Le all these times. She didn’t want him to badmouth her ‘mother’. Yet after he left, she discovered the wedding gown that Bai Ming Li ordered for Ping An thus going ballistic. She even discovered the letter Bai Ming Li wrote for Ping An and was even more frustrated, more than upset for being used and all. (Which was understandable of the breakdown.) And at that moment, Zi Wen was back to the hospital, going into Bai Ming Li’s room to tell her how he was the one behind all the schemes, saying that she’d finally got what she deserved. He tried to pull her mask off yet soon stopped himself, stating that she must wake up to see what she’d lost, not leave so comfortably like that.

One morning, Ping An was inside her mother’s room, tending to her. However, she was soon interrupted by Xi Le, telling Ping An to leave and let her and her mother be alone. Ping An got up but didn’t leave. She was just tending to some things at the side. Xi Le repeated in a fierce voice, asking if Ping An knew what it meant to leave others alone. Ping An finally gathered her stuff and left the room. She didn’t really leave though since she was standing outside, crying over the fact that she couldn’t be present, tending to her mother like she wanted. Moreover, she was really hurt that Xi Le was very upset with her as well.

At the company, Zi Wen had already helped Ji Li Sheng acquired some control over the company so Hei Zai came to his office without caring for caution. Yet when Zi Wen realized that, he wanted to help Zi Wen move things forward faster.

Back at the hospital, Xi Le was already gone for the day so Ping An got a chance to go back in the room with her mother. In fact, she had fallen asleep by her mother’s bedside. Ye Chen soon came in and draped a jacket over her. That had alarmed her and woke her up. He told her to go home and rest first. Yet she said she wanted to stay some more since she was told to leave earlier when Xi Le came. Ye Chen, upon hearing that, was more than upset that Ping An got kicked out. He wanted to go reason with Xi Le yet Ping An stopped him. He said he would go buy some food for her so she agreed. She went with him yet didn’t leave far. She actually went to the nurse’s station so when Hei Zai came in to try to mess with the machines, Ping An came back with a nurse and was able to prevent the inevitable. Hei Zai fled yet Ping An chased after him as the nurse was calling others to come help. Ping An almost got attacked by Hei Zai yet Ye Chen came back in time to rescue her. Hei Zai was able to flee the scene after pushing Ping An toward Ye Chen. Yet Hei Zai had dropped his cell phone. Ping An suggested they gave the cell phone to the police. Ye Chen told her to go back and tend to her mother since he had to go somewhere.

Back inside, Ping An realized that her mother had awakened. Ping An finally got a chance to have a heart-wrenching talk with her. From the subject of how Ping An got her name to her father, and many more. Bai Ming Li even took the time to tell Ping An to take good care of Xi Le, saying how much she owed Xi Le. She also told Ping An to tell Xi Le “thank you and sorry”. Indeed it was their last talk since after saying all those things she wanted to say, Bai Ming Li passed away. It wasn’t too pitiful because she saw Ping An’s father coming to pick her up.

Elsewhere, Ye Chen finally confronted Zi Wen. He saw Zi Wen’s cell phone number on Hei Zai’s cell phone hence wanting to seek Zi Wen out for a talk before doing anything. Zi Wen, of course, finally went all out to tell Ye Chen what was going on and how it made sense for him to avenge his parents’ death. Ye Chen said what Bai Ming Li had done was within the business wars and how she would get what she deserved, but Zi Wen doing all those things was crossing the line, etc. Ye Chen said he should’ve let Zi Wen served his sentence a long time ago so he wouldn’t keep stepping down the wrong path. However, Zi Wen said that because it wasn’t his parents so Ye Chen was able to stand around and say those things to him. So there they were arguing over what was going on. Ye Chen finally made his decision by exposing Zi Wen before things go further so it wouldn’t be too late for Zi Wen to return. Yet Zi Wen delivered the last blow by saying that Bai Ming Li was the one who killed Wei Zhen. That got to Ye Chen. Though he beat Zi Wen up and scolding Zi Wen for not being able to take good care of his sister, he didn’t do anything else. Around that time, he received a text message from Ping An that her mother had passed away.

When he came home, Ye Chen saw Ping An sitting around grieving over her mother’s death and mumbling things. Though he was still upset over the newly learned information yet he still held her to him, comforting her, knowing too well she had nothing to do with it. Though he silently apologized to Wei Zhen for not being able to seek justice for her like he’d promised–because he’d also promised Ping An that he would stay by her side.

So the will was finally read and Xi Le became the inheritor–as expected by Zi Wen since he switched the documents. (Probably the previous version since he’d sneak a look at it in the past somehow.) Ye Chen was beating himself up for not being more careful and losing the documents. Yet after a talk with Lawyer Huang, he tried to seek out Doctor Lu to ask for his help. Because they were both witnesses, they should try to resurrect the situation. However, after Doctor Lu left, Ping An said it was all right that Xi Le was in charge since she was more suitable for the job. Ye Chen told Ping An to stop protecting Xi Le since Xi Le had changed already. Ping An told Ye Chen not to badmouth Xi Le and that she believed Xi Le, because she’d known Xi Le longer. Ye Chen reasoned that because of different reasons, people would change.

Not being able to convince Ping An, Ye Chen decided to go ahead with his plan in exposing Zi Wen. He had told Sergeant Xu to meet up with him in front of Wei Zhen’s grave. (He actually apologized to Wei Zhen first for doing that but he had to stop Zi Wen from doing any more wrongs.) Sergeant Xu first chided him for picking such a location since he preferred the noodles stall of their last meetup. He said if Ye Chen didn’t want to pay, he was willing. However, Ye Chen went right into asking him about the details of his sister’s death. Sergeant Xu told him about the details of the accident. However, he pointed out what was strange was how Wei Zhen was the one who jumped in front of the car. Ye Chen then reached into his pocket and was about to give Sergeant Xu the evidence (Hei Zai’s cell phone) when he spotted a bouquet of flowers near the tombstone. He ended up telling Sergeant Xu if he hadn’t told him he got something, Sergeant Xu wouldn’t help him. So Sergeant Xu left in a huff. Ye Chen reasoned to Wei Zhen that since Zi Wen still cared for Wei Zhen, they should give him a chance. Yet what Ye Chen found out next was another puzzle. The card left along with the bouquet of flowers didn’t include names or anything, just the location of the flower shop.

Ye Chen finally had a chance to take Ping An to Wei Zhen’s grave, and tending to the flowers he asked of her advice earlier. At first, Ping An was wondering why he’d took her there since she expected him to plant the flowers at home. However, upon arriving, she was a bit lost for words. Not for long though since she asked him who the other person was. He said it was his sister. He then faced the headstone, telling Wei Zhen that he’d brought Ping An to see her. Ping An commented about how Wei Zhen’s smile was so bright–and wondered what happened. Ye Chen said it was a car accident, he was still in prison so he didn’t get to see Wei Zhen for the last time. It was then that Ping An placed a hand on Ye Chen’s shoulder for comfort. Then she realized that the first time they’d met, he was carrying flowers and asked him if it was for Wei Zhen. She then said it was Wei Zhen who’d saved her and Bai Ming Li also since Ye Chen was visiting his sister and coming back to town hence seeing them both (and the whole rescue scene). She faced Wei Zhen again and thanked her for it. After paying some respect for Wei Zhen, Ping An turned to check on the flowers. She said he was exaggerating about the flowers being all dead. He was pondering why there were no flowers after so long. She said all the flowers were the same, needing water, food, etc. So she promised to help him tend to it. Seeing her bright smile, he walked over to her and pulled her to her feet. While having both hands on her shoulders, he asked her to promise him whatever happens in the future, he hoped that she would keep smiling. She obliged but also asked him to stay by her side no matter what happens in the future. Then they hugged. (Awww…they’re finally together.)

Meanwhile, elsewhere at some shopping center, Xi Le was seen out shopping with Ji Li Sha again. YES, they were back to the same team, being best friends and all. Yet another development worth mentioning was how Ji Li Sha accidentally dropped her handbag so all contents spilled out. As Xi Le helped her retrieve the items inside, she spotted the pearl earrings right inside the bag. She soon confronted Ji Li Sha YET after all the jealous rants, she’d somehow hit the correct spot, causing Xi Le to think of how Ping An was seriously interfering with her life, and how her mother seemed to be favoring Ping An at times too. (GREAT. It’s all Bai Ming Li’s fault for doing this. Although I dislike Xi Le’s fake, perfect image but I know it was Bai Ming Li’s doings to cause so much confusion now. Well, she said she had her reasons–and it seriously had happened with how Zi Wen had tried to jump in to further his plans, but like Ye Chen said, it wasn’t fair to Xi Le or Ping An.) So after Xi Le left–with saying how Ji Li Sha still didn’t have to do those things even if she hated Ping An, Ji Li Sha herself wasn’t upset that Xi Le had tried to lecture her. She was satisfied that she’d gotten to Xi Le since seeing how Xi Le walked away with her head down. She said she didn’t believe how Xi Le would be happy with being Ping An’s shadow since she knew Xi Le wouldn’t disclose the real whereabouts of the pearl earrings (aka Ping An would still be responsible for those crimes she didn’t do). (And I know for sure Ji Li Sha wasn’t up to any good when she promised to help Xi Le in exchange to keep the secrets. She was just saying that to help herself and then eventually tearing both Ping An and Xi Le apart with all the tactics that she’d got.)

Back at the hospital, Ye Chen was seen signing some documents. It was actually Bai Ming Li’s will. Yes, the documents she told Ye Chen to go retrieve from her lawyer was the will. She wanted to change her will–with both her doctor and Ye Chen being witnesses. After thanking her doctor for helping, she gave the documents to Ye Chen and told him to keep it safe. If anything happened to her, he was to give it to her lawyer. They discussed further suspicions and future plans. She told him to protect both Ping An and Xi Le if something happened to her since whoever was the one striking would be targeting her daughter after her passing.

Later at Bai Ming Li’s house, Ping An and Xi Le were cooking together. Xi Le spotted the necklace Ping An was wearing and was about to ask, only able to mutter about the word “pearl” when Ping An accidentally cut her finger. She tended to it quickly and told Xi Le that she would definitely work hard to earn the money so she could compensate Xi Le. Ping An was talking about the pearl earrings that she’d lost. Xi Le clarified that she didn’t mean it yet Ping An insisted. Xi Le apologized to Ping An for scolding her so fiercely that time. However, Ping An said because Xi Le treated her like family so scolded her, and she understood that she was all grown up now yet still didn’t know the seriousness of it so she should learn to take responsibilities. The fact that Xi Le never told Ping An about the whole incident that she found out and how Ping An was innocent all along said something about their so-called friendship. Ji Li Sha was indeed right that she’d hit the correct spot. The conversation soon moved toward Ping An and Ye Chen since Ping An wanted Xi Le to guess where Ye Chen took her to yesterday. Yes, the truth finally came out that Wei Zhen was actually Ye Chen’s sister, not Zi Wen’s. It was also then that Zi Wen walked in and overheard that his plan was going haywire. He soon interrupted their talk to ask about the delicacies they were preparing, and if they needed any assistance.

At the dinner table, awkwardness all around since Ping An was trying to ignite some sort of lively conversation to dissolve the atmosphere yet she, like her usual self, would go a tad over at times hence Ye Chen having to kick her under the table multiple times. She got the message somehow but was still trying to patch matters. Yes, Bai Ming Li did compliment Xi Le’s delicacies and said she really liked it, etc. Yet Xi Le was still upset over the other matter hence not really talking much. Bai Ming Li soon got up to leave. Ping An said that she hadn’t eaten much yet Ye Chen said she just got discharged so she should go rest. So there it was, Bai Ming Li went to rest while the others continue. As Xi Le was washing dishes, Zi Wen tried to strike up a conversation. He wanted to help her yet Ping An jumped in and told him not to since she got it. Ye Chen finally pulled her aside and told her that he was taking her out for a walk. So when they finally left, Zi Wen tried again yet Xi Le left in a huff. He chased after her, admitting that he had lied about Wei Zhen yet the rest was true. He then proposed to her. She agreed yet she said she had to talk to her mother first.

Elsewhere, Ye Chen and Ping An were seen taking their walk. She was pondering why he’d taken her out for since it was cold, etc. He said he brought her there to watch the stars. It was then that she realized it was indeed nice. After some more teasing from him, he asked her about her new ‘gift’. It seemed like he hadn’t seen the pearl necklace her mother gave her yet. So he was mumbling about how first it was a cell phone and now it was a necklace, he pondered what Huo Ying’s intention was. Ping An clarified that it wasn’t from Huo Ying but from Bai Ming Li. He looked reassured and settled down next to her on the bench. They talked about their necklaces looking like stars. Ping An also admitted that she somewhat knew her father had passed away already but she didn’t want to believe it.

Then Xi Le finally saw the picture on her mother’s dresser and realized that her mother had given the necklace to Ping An. Bai Ming Li disclosed that it was her 2nd husband giving it to her. So that had caused Xi Le to be even more unease since she reasoned that it was indeed very important of memorial value yet Bai Ming Li had given it to Ping An. After some more words being exchanged, Xi Le told her mother about Zi Wen’s proposal. She was happy for Xi Le and as long as Xi Le was happy, she would agree to this marriage. So Xi Le went to the company to tell Ping An of the good news. Ping An was more than happy about the news. Xi Le then gave Ping An a package that Ping An had to deliver before heading off to shop with Ji Li Sha.

Ping An’s trip proved dangerous and it had become her last chance at the company because she ended up losing the documents and was forced to quit. It was because of Huo Ying. He’d listened to his father and switched the package from Ping An while trying to help her. He had claimed that it wasn’t safe to hold it in her hands like that hence wanting to put it in her backpack for her. That was when he’d switched the package. The more obvious sign was how he’d uttered a “sorry” to her after she left his car because of traffic, claiming that it was faster for her to walk. So she rushed off and delivered a package that was empty. And contrary to her past protecting of Ping An, Bai Ming Li actually personally told the others to do as appropriate. She even stopped Ye Chen from trying to investigate–though she obviously knew it was Ji Shi Cheng. Ye Chen still didn’t understand since he’d requested a copy of the clip from the security room to present it in front of Bai Ming Li. However, she told him it was best to let Ping An leave the company and away from all the madness. So that night, he brought Ping An back to his place. (And for the record, Xi Le knew of the whole matter yet didn’t say anything, because she was supposed to give the package to Zi Wen BUT she’d ended up giving it to Ping An. Bai Ming was setting a trap to see if she could believe Zi Wen–and she claimed that Xi Le had become her daughter after spending all these times together so she wanted to make sure Xi Le had met a good person, but the inevitable happened so she just have to go with it to get Ping an out of the complicated company and its business wars.)

Later, Bai Ming Li was talking to Ye Chen on the roof again. Mostly to discuss of their current plan and possible moves. She also mentioned how she made sure to have the best arrangements for Xi Le’s wedding. She said it was the best she could do for Xi Le, and making up for her with the trap since the beginning. Considering her past traps and thinking for herself and only people who are related to her. It seemed like a change because she’d even admitted that she ended up treated Xi Le like her daughter. She then told Ye Chen not to tell Ping An that she was actually Ping An’s mother, because it was the only way to let Ping An continue on happily.

After remembering the location of the possible misplaced pearl earrings, Ping An rushed to find it. Xi Le wanted to go too yet was stopped by Ji Li Sha once again with the same reasoning that she didn’t want Xi Le to waste time searching and not rest hence them having to do too much brush up with the photos. So she wanted Xi Le to go do a spa with her while Ping An go search. Silently, Ji Li Sha was gloating inside, saying that Ping An could search all she wanted since she couldn’t find it anyway. The spa session was also the time for Ji Li Sha to badmouth Ping An and put more doubts into Xi Le’s mind. She wanted Xi Le’s help with getting Ye Chen. Great or what?

As Ping An was out searching for the pearl earrings, Ye Chen was trying to call her. She left her cell phone inside again. He soon discovered that bit when he walked by the inventory area and heard the phone vibrating. Ping An, still outside, actually stopped her searching for a bit and reminisced about last night on the boat ride with Ye Chen. She pondered why the feeling was totally different from last night. Of course, it wasn’t similar since tonight she was in big trouble and trying to find a certain item. As Ping An was mumbling about why she was thinking of Ye Chen anyway, he showed up, chiding her for talking behind his back, lol. She was more than surprised by his presence. Or was just shocked since he overheard her words? (LOL) He said he guessed since she was probably standing there reminiscing about last night, lol. She told him she wasn’t that senseless, and even scolded him for almost making her sick. He returned it by saying if she wanted to stand there tonight so the wind would make her sick for real. She didn’t want to joke with him anymore, saying how she was searching for the pearl earrings. So he ended up helping her. (Thank Ji Li Sha for giving them more time to spend together, lol.)

Ping An later returned to her room shared with Xi Le to find Ji Li Sha hanging around and giving Xi Le her beauty supplies, even giving Xi Le tips regarding them. Ping An interfered and said Xi Le was a natural beauty so she didn’t need them and Ji Li Sha could just bring it back for herself. Yet Xi Le spoke up to ask Ping An about the pearl earrings. Ping An said she still couldn’t find it yet she was willing to go back outside and find it. However, Xi Le said Ping An didn’t need to and that Ping An should rest since it was late already. She then turned to Ji Li Sha and asked about the price of the earrings and told Ji Li Sha she could compensate her. As Ping An jumped in to interfere, Xi Le ignored her and just discussed with Ji Li Sha, treating Ping An like an outsider. It wasn’t until Ji Li Sha left that Ping asked about how Xi Le seemed to have become best friends with Ji Li Sha. However, Xi Le didn’t reply, she just said she was tired so she wanted to go rest. Ping An quickly apologized for what was going on and said she would compensate Xi Le later regarding the earrings. However, Xi Le was still hostile, stating that it wasn’t about the money. Ping An asked her why she was so upset. Xi Le then burst out saying how Ping An was like the past, knowing that the item was important yet still lose it. Ping An said she didn’t do it on purpose and Xi Le said she knew, but… YUP, she wasn’t talking about the earrings anymore. (Take it as whatever it was, but Ping An’s only fault was allowing Zi Wen to take the tie clip from her. The rest, it was on Zi Wen and Xi Le.)

Back on the Zi Wen front, he was finally able to acquire the medical files and was gloating. He soon opened the files to read and finally discovered about Bai Ming Li’s current health situation. It was indeed quite serious. Yet what was Zi Wen’s next move now? Let nature take its course or increase the pain for Bai Ming Li?

Next morning, Ping An was still really, really, really unease. So she got up early to go back out for another round of searching. However, what she discovered was how Ye Chen was still there looking for the pearl earrings. She walked over to ask him how long he’d been there. He said he couldn’t sleep anyway so it didn’t make a difference. He went on further to say how he was sure there were no earrings around there, joking about how some birds must have carried it off already. As he was stretching and yawning, she grabbed a hold of him, saying how he was the world’s dumbest person. His surprise mode kicked in as the grogginess wore off. She continued on with her rant, saying how he knew he couldn’t find it yet still did it. He finally smiled, hugging her back. He said he didn’t want to give up so quick. She told him that Xi Le was really upset this time–and even admitted that she was really happy to have him by her side at this moment. (Thank Ji Li Sha again for bringing them together.)

They finally returned to the company and Xi Le was seen calling Zi Wen and arranging a dinner date with him. After they got off the phone, Ji Li Sha walked up and hooked hands with Xi Le as they walked and chatted happily like buddies while Ping An carried a box of items, being left behind. It was indeed a totally different situation. (However, they seriously let a guy stand between their so-called friendship/bordering on sister relationship. Seriously?) It was a misunderstanding, but if they were real friends or sisters, JUST PLAIN SAY IT OUT ALREADY. Ping An still had no idea what Xi Le’s talking about and she did try to ask, but Xi Le kept dodging. It was really a time to test their bond. So I got it with how Xi Le was trying to mingle into her supposedly new family’s world and have her doubts about many things, including her relationship with Zi Wen. But what about her past promise of always being sisters?) But Ping An’s mood soon improved when Ye Chen walked up to her and patted her head like usual, slipping a hand around her shoulders and showing his support. Indeed, it was one good thing out of all the unfortunate things she’d to face after so much ruptures.

After a call with Hei Zai, Zi Wen went to Ji Shi Cheng’s house to discuss the next step of his plan. Well, he sure knew how to spoil the old man’s moods by trying to blackmail him into cooperating. So now they were on the same team? For how long actually? Yes, it wasn’t long. Since after Zi Wen left with an air (since he seriously got something over Ji Shi Cheng already), Ji Shi Cheng was saying how he’d under-estimated Zi Wen. However, he had disclosed he would use this to his advantage as well.

Back at the company, Ping An and Ye Chen finally arrived at Bai Ming Li’s office. She asked about their trip and if Ping An was exhausted from the work. Ping An said she wasn’t yet when Ye Chen gave her a look, she admitted that she was a bit tired, lol. Ping An went on with saying how much she’d learned from the Ji siblings these past days. Bai Ming Li said if Ping An worked harder, she would become as experienced as them, and if she had the opportunity of studying overseas, she might even surpass them. Ping An agreed yet she said it would be too expensive with the overseas education. Bai Ming Li assured her she would have an opportunity if she could earn the chance of the company’s program of funding the education. Ping An’s confidence restored and she promised to work harder.  Then Bai Ming Li said she wanted to go out a bit, telling Ping An to accompany her. They headed back to the kitchen area so Ping An could visit with the employees. Soon, they were standing in a straight line to greet Bai Ming Li. Bai Ming Li, unlike her past stern self, told them they’d been working really hard, etc. She then informed them that she would keep Ping An by her side so Ping An wouldn’t be returning to work there. The staff was more than happy that Ping An got this opportunity and cheered her on. As they were talking, the supervisor gave Ye Chen a big scare since she appeared in her usual work outfit but had placed on top of her head a big red bow AND also another big bow near her shirt hence freaking the world out of him. He, upon seeing it, jumped over to stand next to Ping An. Bai Ming Li was surprised yet Ping An sent Ye Chen a sympathy look. Ping An then asked why the supervisor was wearing the big bow and she answered with saying how she was trying to change her “tao hua”, lol. Though sympathizing Ye Chen, Ping An couldn’t help but laugh at the other lady for exaggerating. It wasn’t until the supervisor left with Bai Ming Li that Ye Chen somewhat calmed down.

Later that night, Zi Wen and Xi Le were on one of their dates again. However, they didn’t go to some fancy restaurant again. He brought her back to his place so he could prepare some Italian noodles for her. She was more than happy. Yet her moods were spoiled by some items she’d found. She had wandered into his room and opened up his secret box that had some photos of him and Wei Zhen along with the cake Ping An gave him. She was more troubled as to why Zi Wen had those and pondered if the girl in the picture was his sister or “that Wei Zhen”–as she phrased it. When he announced that dinner was ready, she rushed to close the box and placed it back into its original spot and got up to go outside. In her haste, she’d knocked over his watch. He said it was okay but his expression said that he was upset. He soon restored his ‘happy’ mood as they ate. But he soon realized she was spaced out hence asking her what was wrong. When Xi Le finally asked him about the name he blurted out that day (so she did hear it after all) of the photoshoot, he immediately asked if Ye Chen had told her anything. (Nice friend indeed, accusing Ye Chen every chance he got.) Xi Le said that Ye Chen didn’t tell her anything, but just clarified that she’d overheard Ye Chen and Zi Wen’s conversation that day and how Ye Chen told Zi Wen not to treat Ping An like ‘that girl’. Zi Wen said that the girl was called “Wei Zhen” and he said that Wei Zhen was his sister. (NICE one.) Xi Le couldn’t drop it since she said how it was strange he had blurted out his sister’s name in his dream. He said if she didn’t believe him then forget it. He attempted to walk away, but she rushed after him, apologizing and saying how she hadn’t met Wei Zhen yet and wondered if she wasn’t important enough to meet her. He turned around–now totally out of control (aka all emotional)–stating that Wei Zhen was already dead. That wasn’t all because he sure did break down, saying how all his family had left him already since he was in high school, and if she was satisfied that he finally told her everything. Whether the break down was real (or somewhat of it was real and he just went with it to win her pity), Xi Le sure was convinced. She rushed to apologize again. Instead of allowing her to comfort him, he said since it was already destined that everyone he loved would leave him, she might as well leave too. Then he opened the door to kick her out. She apologized again but was told off once again. This time, he used a louder tone, so she had no choice but to leave. As she turned around to look at him again, he closed the door in her face. A brilliant performance indeed. As she finally left though, he was inside, coming out of his trance, at last, saying he can’t let her go. So the previous scene might not be a performance after all? Maybe somewhat of it was to explain of Wei Zhen’s status as his ‘sister’ but the other parts of breaking down weren’t. It would make sense that all those boiled up feelings would come forth one time or another. So he opened the door and chased after her. He couldn’t catch up with her at the elevators but managed to by the time she was down at the lobby. So the game was on again.

As for Ping An, she was in her room, trying to work hard again. Yet she was scolding herself for not trying harder since little with studying and all. While playing with her pen, she spotted the bow she had clipped onto the pen and once again thought of Ye Chen and his fear for bows. She finally took the bow clip off and placed it in her bag, saying goodbye to Zi Wen and hope he and Xi Le would be happy. (Wait, he gave her that clip? I had forgotten since episode 1 since I had watched that WAY back before going back to watch from episode 2 onward.) Looking on the bright side though, she was finally able to let go of Zi Wen and consider protecting Ye Chen–with his fear of bows and all. Wanting to take a break, she headed out to the kitchen to get some milk. As she did that, she sang her father’s old song again. That was when Bai Ming Li walked in and smiled at her. She stopped abruptly upon realizing of Bai Ming Li’s presence. After some brief exchanged, Bai Ming Li said she wanted some milk–like how Ping An prepared hers, so Ping An obliged. Bai Ming Li soon sat down at one of the stools to wait for her drink, even taking that time to ask Ping An about the song and how she’d overheard Xi Le sang it previously. Ping An disclosed that she’d taught Xi Le that song, and explained how her father had composed it when her mother was pregnant with her. Bai Ming Li then complimented the song–and even wanted Ping An to sing it again for her. Ping An was more happy to, considering how it was her father’s song. While Ping An sang, Bai Ming Li reminisced back to the time Ping An’s father sang it to her at a park. When Ping An was done with preparing milk for Bai Ming Li, Bai Ming Li mumbled something about, “This is my real daughter” so that had caused a stare from Ping An. Bai Ming Li rushed to explain that Xi Le was too busy with ‘love’ right now so she wasn’t home as much as Ping An, so it seemed like Ping An was more like her daughter than Xi Le. (Smart save, lol.) Ping An let out a nervous laugh and said she wasn’t that fortunate. Bai Ming Li then moved to ask about Ping An’s father, pondering if he’d mentioned her mother to her. Ping An replied yes but she didn’t remember much. She also went on to say that her mother was probably someone who only cared for the glamorous stuff hence abandoning them both. Bai Ming Li tried to comfort her by saying that her mother probably regretted it very much and she must have her reasons since kids were the most precious things to a mother. It was then that Ping An asked her if she had any regrets. She said that she never had any regrets in pursuing her own dreams, but if she was able to do it again, she would bring her daughter with her. Ping An pondered aloud if her mother had similar thoughts as Bai Ming Li. Bai Ming Li, on the other hand, pondered if that was Heaven’s punishment for her since her daughter was right in front of her yet she wasn’t able to reach. She also wished that she could hear Ping An call her ‘Mom’.

So on some other day, Ye Chen was out and about. He encountered some traffic jams at a side street. Yet that had allowed him an opportunity to see Hei Zai meeting up with someone. They seemed to be doing some exchange. He silently pondered about it yet didn’t linger. He was meeting Ping An up at this one flower place. She needed help to pick up some flowers for her. While they were walking out of there, he noticed that she wasn’t wearing her bow clip. She didn’t answer directly, but just asked him, “Aren’t you afraid of bows?” She soon told him that she’d stored it away already–to which he smiled. He then asked her for help with tending to his flowers. Yeah, the one he planted by his sister’s grave.

At the opening ceremony, Bai Ming Li finally crashed–after not being able to sustain any longer. Even her meds didn’t help, considering how her condition was getting worse and worse. Or possibly it was an overdose since she had increased the amount as she was leaving the conference room earlier. Yet she was able to complete her speech. Ye Chen immediately rushed forward to carry her off as the others followed to the hospital. (And then suddenly Ping An and Xi Le were best friends again because of how Ping An told Xi Le to calm down, etc. Or was it because of how Xi Le was already reassured that Zi Wen was just thinking of Ping An as his sister because of how similar she was to his sister?) So did Zi Wen strike this time? Because he had nodded briefly in Ji Shi Cheng’s direction after saying a few words to the crowd to control the situation. Since Ji Shi Cheng only taunted Bai Ming Li earlier in the conference room. Or was this all a coincidence that Bai Ming Li’s health was taking its worse turn at last because she’d delayed all sorts of treatments since she was diagnosed?

A flashback, while Zi Wen was in the restroom, showed that he indeed did switch the pills out of her briefcase when she wasn’t around. It was also then that Hei Zai walked out of one of the stalls to congratulate Zi Wen for his plan being successful. Zi Wen’s clever move was actually retrieving the fake pills from the briefcase after knowing Bai Ming Li had taken some, not wanting to leave behind any traces of evidence. Hei Zai wanted to toss it out immediately yet Zi Wen stopped him in time, wanting him to take it out of there before getting rid of it. He was indeed careful. If not, how could he survived by Bai Ming Li’s side all these years, right? After that, Zi Wen gave Hei Zai his payment for the completion of the latest assignment. And he somehow disclosed to Hei Zai how he was trying to scare Bai Ming Li so she would give Xi Le’s hand to him, i.e. letting them both get married since she (Bai Ming Li) doesn’t have much time left.

At the hospital, they had to wait like last time and was later greeted by Bai Ming Li’s doctor. Yet this time, he did say that it wasn’t just exhaustion like last time (since Ping An asked), he said it was an overdose and they have to do some more tests, etc. However, he told them not to be worried. Ping An and Xi Le were allowed to go in to see her but they have to be quiet so they wouldn’t disturb her rest. However, the doctor told Ye Chen to go fetch Bai Ming Li’s medications. (YUP, Zi Wen sure took care of everything. Good luck with investigating.)

Inside Bai Ming Li’s room, both girls were by her bedside. However, Xi Le had to step away to take the call from Zi Wen, telling him of the situation there. (Nice, he has ears everywhere now.) While Ping An was still standing there, watching over Bai Ming Li, the latter finally awakened. As Ping An realized that Bai Ming Li had opened her eyes, she turned and was about to call to Xi Le. Yet Bai Ming Li grabbed a hold of her hand–to much of her surprise. Ping An soon smiled in return though. It was also then that Xi Le finished the last bit of her conversation and turned to them, witnessing the scene. She seemed unhappy about it (which was understandable) and walked over to them. Ping An rushed to explain that Bai Ming Li probably was still groggy hence thinking that she (Ping An) was Xi Le. (Lucky for Ping An, Bai Ming Li had already closed her eyes again so it made sense that was what was taking place.) Xi Le nodded, agreeing. She even took that chance to detach Ping An’s hand from Bai Ming Li’s and told Ping An to go back to the ceremony since she could tend to her mother.

After Ping An left, Xi Le told her mother that she must stay healthy and safe since it was already hard enough that they were able to find each other again. That was when Bai Ming Li mumbled randomly in her unconscious state the name “Mi Bao”. (OH SHOOT!) Xi Le wasn’t paying attention at first and thought Bai Ming Li was calling her so she said she was right there. Yet Bai Ming Li repeated the name hence Xi Le realizing that the name sounded familiar.

Back at the company, Ye Chen finally arrived and was on his way to fetch Bai Ming Li’s briefcase so he could return to the hospital to give it to the doctor. However, he was stopped by Bai Ming Li’s assistant. She said that she only knew of it when Zi Wen returned to the company to retrieve some items. Ye Chen was surprised that Zi Wen had returned to the company to get some stuff instead of just heading to the hospital to meet up with them after taking care of the situation at the ceremony. He immediately went into Bai Ming Li’s office to fetch her briefcase. Yet he checked the medications first. Even if it had been switched back but he now knew something was up. After checking the pills, he remembered about how he had spotted Hei Zai receiving some similar-looking pills from a certain someone earlier.

As interesting as it got, Ping An was on her way out of the house–using a motorcycle she acquired somehow, Ji Huo Ying drove by in his car and blocked her path. He called her “Master” and told her to get in since he would be taking her around. She returned it by saying that she already had her own vehicle so she didn’t need his help. (And when did the “Master” thing happened?) He didn’t mind that she was giving him her usual attitude. He went on happily by saying how both Ye Chen and Xi Le were already at the hospital so he was being a good ‘disciple’ and using his special car to pick her up. She said it was a good opportunity for her to experience this particular ride so she told him off and left on the motorcycle. He didn’t yell or attack her with some words either but just looked a tad disappointed before riding off as well. So the flashback explained more about why he’d have a change of heart about her. It happened when he encountered the embarrassing incident with his ‘ripped’ pants. She forced him to take it off so she could patch it up for him. (Yes, another interesting thing but she knew a good bit of needlework to help him in such a situation.) He found her cute? LOL! It was really happening! The day he would see something in her. And he had admitted to her that it was the first time someone patched up his clothes for him. She said, of course, he didn’t have a reason to with his background and it was different from her since she grew up in an orphanage so they often have to patch their own clothes. She also had to patch clothes for the other kids. He said he wanted to learn, wanting her to teach him. (Wah, really? Or he was just using that excuse to pursue her? Just saying.)

Back to reality. Somewhere down the road, Huo Ying caught up with her and tried to cut her off again. She ended up yelling at him, of course. He decided to ‘bribe’ his master with a smartphone, lol. She returned it to him, saying that people who are ‘smart’ don’t need ‘smart’ phones. LOL! He placed it back into her hand, saying that treat it as his thank you gift to her. He even reasoned that it would help her work from now on. Then he left, not caring that she was calling after him–still protesting about the matter. Ping An finally accepted it. It was due to the fact that he had mentioned how it was new to her yet it was old to most people, etc (aka falling out of trends). So she said she shouldn’t waste it, stating it would definitely benefit her with future photo-shooting sessions.

And then somewhere down the road, Ping An finally arrived at the company. As she was having trouble with moving another item out of the way, someone helped her. It was Zi Wen. She soon realized it and straightened up – since she just thought it was some random person nearby. Yet she didn’t forget to thank him again. As she took her helmet off, he was asking how he hadn’t seen her bow clip for a long time now. She struggled to answer, finally saying that she had accidentally damaged it already. He was about to chide her, reaching his hand forward to touch her nose (like he usually did at times when he was chiding her). YET she recoiled, taking a step back to increase the distance between them. (YES, finally an improvement and change since she should be more conscious of the situation now. OR was it because she had fallen for Ye Chen already and considering his feelings so wanting to keep the distance from Zi Wen? Still, it was a great improvement. It would at least reduce somewhat of the misunderstanding Xi Le have toward her.) Zi Wen indeed noticed the difference in her reaction, comparing to the past. However, he recovered and told her that he could buy her another clip. She said he didn’t have to since she didn’t care for clips anymore–and even mentioned that he should be buying stuff for Xi Le instead. He didn’t look too happy about that but replied that he knew. He then asked her if they could still be friends, even if he was dating Xi Le now. She responded yes but she said she didn’t want to bother him anymore and that she had to get going anyway so she rushed inside the main entrance as he stood there staring. He silently realized that Ping An seemed to have grown up already.

At the hospital, the doctor told Bai Ming Li that this time’s crash wasn’t due to her health condition but other factors. Yet he told her that she still have to stay put, considering how her health was really deteriorating. As Xi Le walked in, Bai Ming Li told her that the doctor said she could go home tomorrow. The doctor chided her for not listening to him before saying that she still had to stay home and rest. He even instructed Xi Le not to let Bai Ming Li out of the house. Xi Le obliged. Bai Ming Li was joking that the doctor had bought off her daughter. Then she told Xi Le to go home and prepare stuff. She said she wanted to taste Xi Le’s delicacies tomorrow when she could finally be discharged. Xi Le was more happy to do just that. She was also told to tell Ye Chen to come in right away. After Xi Le left, the doctor asked if Ye Chen could be trusted and Bai Ming Li nodded, saying that he could. When Ye Chen entered, they could finally start with the discussion. The doctor told them of the blood test results first. He then explained further what all of that meant before asking Bai Ming Li if she’d taken any other types of medications. She confessed that she’d increased the dosage but didn’t take any other types of medications aside from the pain killers he’d given her. Ye Chen stated that it was possible that the pills got switched. However, the doctor clarified the pills that Ye Chen retrieved were indeed the ones he prescribed. Bai Ming Li, being intelligent that she was, pointed out that if the other person had taken the pills back, then it would make sense no one could investigate it. She went on to say that if whoever that was had done it the first time, it would happen again. So she told Ye Chen to go get some item(s) from her lawyer. She then asked the doctor to be her witness, which he agreed. She also wanted Ye Chen to be her witness.
