Staring at her without saying anything for a few seconds, Yao Qi says "You are not telling me the truth, but you must have a reason for it, so we'll let it go." Such a cool guy... but I still wish someone would just give Yuan Fang a good solid punch.
With a sly smile Yao Qi tells her "I guess you and that architect might actually had an amicable breakup after all. I think he would be left with half of a life if he tried to princess carry you. Plus, I think you weigh more than him right?"
Affronted, Ji Wei yells after Yao Qi "Hey! He really really didn't want to break up with me okay?!" Muttering to herself Ji Wei complains "If it wasn't for the fact I can't tell you the truth then you would know how popular my fat is!" Ha, my favorite line.
Mama Zhou "So you guys have decided not to be siblings anymore right?"
Yao Qi "Probably... can't be.... siblings anymore."
Ji Wei "Oh, Yeah! We have already done what siblings can't do."
Mama Zhou slaps Ji Wei on the arm "How can you say such a shameful thing!"
Interjecting into Mama Zhou's blabbering of how shameful Ji Wei is Yao Qi clarifies "She is talking about kissing. You adults, how can you guys be so sinful." Ha ha! So hilarious.
Back to the business at hand, Mama Zhou lists out her conditions for Yao Qi and Ji Wei.
1. They have to wait three years before they can get married. Ji Wei protests that in three years she would be over 30 years old, so she is trying to get that timeline down to two years.
2.In three years (Ji Wei says 2 years), Mama Zhou wants to see a savings account with $1,000,000 NT in it. (That's about $34,000 U.S. Dollars)
3. Every month they need to give Mama Zhou half of their salary for her to put into the saving for them. (So now they have to save $34,000 and also give Mama Zhou half of their income.)
4. Ji Wei and Yao Qi needs to come home once a month.
5. Yao Qi needs to find a job with normal working hours. (Planning for the day when they have kids)
6. Yao Qi needs to change his quick temper.
7. Whatever Yao Qi does, he needs to put "If I am really Zhou Ji Wei's brother I would..."
Yao Qi agrees to all of Mama Zhou's rules and the two love birds can finally start their life together. Oh, and Ji Wei did get her princess carry after all.
Ji Wei "All?!"
Yao Qi "Yap."
Took me a second to remember what they are talking about. Yao Qi is talking about him rushing into the tent to avoid the rain at their secret wall while Ji Wei is sitting inside naked.
Sending Ji Wei off to bed and not forgetting to remind her to lock her door, Yao Qi lays in bed and mutters "Mrs. Zhou that was a low blow!"
In the bathroom, Ji Wei tries to figure out why Yao Qi would suddenly stop their kissing, but the only answer Yao Qi have for her is to sing patriotic song as loud as he can in his room.
Ji Wei goes to Mei Xui for advise and the only thing she got was a confession that Mei Xui is jealous of her and a challenge for Jei Wei to take down Yao Qi in three days.
Filled with guilt, Yao Qi goes to his partners to tell them that he has decided to look for a day job instead of working at the restaurant. One of Yao Qi's partner takes the news with understanding, while the other takes it as a betrayal.
Apologetic, but firm in his decision Yao Qi leaves for his first job interview.
Ji Wei hurries home and tell Yao Qi she doesn't want him to change for her, but Yao Qi is again firm on his decision.
Yao Qi's firm decision to leave the restaurant partnership did remain true but his other decision to not touch Ji Wei ... didn't. Literally yanking Yao Qi's cloth off while pushing him into the bedroom, Ji Wei has her way with Yao Qi while he is still feebly protesting.
The insurance contract didn't come free though. Yao Qi's friend had to pay the price of agreeing to study abroad but Yao Qi's friend admits that this could be turning point for him in life.
Turns out the "something" is video games, which Ji Wei won despite Yao Qi's sabotage.
Watching Ji Wei with a slight smile, Yao Qi asks "Are you happy?"
Ji Wei "VERY HAPPY!"
Mama Zhou starts to pack Ji Wei's luggage to drag her home but Yao Qi changes her mind by showing her his bank savings. Only surviving on the bare minimum Yao Qi has almost saved up the amount Mama Zhou demanded in less than a year.
Moved, Mama Zhou tells Ji Wei that she is going home to pick a wedding date. Overwhelmed to finally have Mama Zhou accepts him, Yao Qi hugs her and refuses to let go even when she pretended to be angry.
Yuan Fang "You have nothing to apologize for. My unblissful life is not your fault. Bliss has never come from someone else but from myself."
Ji Wei "Then you need to find bliss soon."
Yuan Fang"I will... once I eat you..."
Oops, that was only my imagination. He really said "I will."
Yao Qi's friend who has gotten over his sense of betrayal, tells Yao Qi to come around more often.
Taking his dad's ashes to the sea like he asked, Yao Qi angrily yells "I have long had nothing to do with you. The only thing I inherited from you is selfishness."
However, Yao Qi finds out that all of his dad's debtors has connections to his grandfather. One of the debtor is the kind man Yao Qi remembers from his childhood that gave his grandmother money while they were struggling.
Yao Qi visits the man and finds out that not only is the man trying to renovate his old dilapidated home, he is also taking care of a special needs granddaughter.
Sitting at the same bench his grandmom and him sat on so long ago, Yao Qi thinks back to his grandmom's words "I think is okay being poor, and is okay to not be good at school, but one must have a good heart."
Yao Qi finally gets home after avoiding Ji Wei's phone call for two days. Kneeling by her and watching her sleeping face, Yao Qi asks "Zhou Bi Ai (her nick name for sadness), what should I do?"
In her sleep, Ji Wei answers "The fridge is the lunch box" Yao Qi only laughs at her answer.
Ji Wei quickly responds with anger over someone who would be so lacking in basic human decency.
Choking back tears, Yao Qi calls Ji Wei on the phone and leaves her a message "I didn't get to say bye just now... so bye. Also, I need to go see a client down south today so don't wait up for me...."
The Twelfth Sadness: Being in love with a good person.
Couldn't we just have 5 more episodes of just watching Yao Qi and Ji Wei being in love??
It was really gratifying to watch Yao Qi and Ji Wei finally being able to just be in love and for once their love is finally accepted by those around them as well. I am a bit shaky on the part of Yao Qi quitting his partnership in the restaurant and working as an insurance salesman. There was nothing wrong with him working as a restaurant owner and to be honest, he probably actually had better financial security with the restaurant than as a sales person. Plus he just didn't look that excited to be selling insurance... I would argue that very few people could.
I do find it funny and educational that Yao Qi's friend calls him to the carpet on the fact he refused to change himself during all the time he spent with Shao Min but for Ji Wei he is willing to abandon the things that was suppose to be unchangeable. Dryly, Yao Qi other friend comments "That's the difference between not loving enough, and being really in love." I do find it sweet that Yao Qi is trying to change for Ji Wei's sake... I just don't agree with him choosing a vocation he has no passion for.
As far as taking his dad's debt on himself goes... I am torn. That's A LOT of money to take on. For most people that's a life time of debt so I really don't see how realistically Yao Qi can repay it all. On the other hand I do understand why he has a difficult time leaving the debtors high and dry... especially to the man who was so kind to them so many years ago.
I just hope whatever Yao Qi does he doesn't do the disappearing act and showing up years down the road but instead choose to battle this head on with Ji Wei by his side.
Hint: In the preview for next weeks episode, Yao Qi asks Mama Zhou to give him two more years... so maybe he will choose to stick it out with Ji Wei after all.
So gang, last episode next week!!! I really wish it was a whole lot longer, but this drama has been one of the best T-Drama I have seen so I guess I wouldn't want to change it.
