Feeling bad for her son, Mama Xia gives the money back to Man Wu telling him to give it to Xi Ru. However, instead of giving the money back to Xi Ru, Man Wu decides to put the money on his new restaurant venture instead. Of course this means Man Wu's lie snowballs bigger and bigger as he has to keep expending it to fool his family and his girlfriend. I am starting to think Xi Ru is a wise woman for refusing Man Wu's proposal.
Despite reluctantly agreeing to let Man An keep working at the ship yard, Ying Jie is startled awake in the middle of the night by a nightmare of Man An getting hurt.
Not willing to let Ying Jie interfere with her work, Man An finally gets Ying Jie to lift his orders after promising that she will be extra careful. Apparently, Ying Jie has some talent in fortune telling and a rather disgruntled Ying Jie ended up taking a wounded Man An home early that afternoon.
Completely puzzled by the whole engagement talk, Ying Jie asks to be let in on the topic only to find out that apparently his own mother is already happily planning an engagement party.
Obviously happy to go along with the engagement plan, Ying Jie shows up with his family to formally asks for Man An's hand.
I guess having both families' formal approval gave Ying Jie the approval he needed and the real kiss we all have been waiting for finally happened!!!
A fun side note is that the netizens jokingly accuse Bobby Dou (Ying Jie) of planting too great of a kiss on Man An for a guy who is supposedly so reserved. Bobby Dou replies in jest "I still have to keep up my reputation of being a good kisser!"
Watching the couple from a short distance away, it seems apparent that Xuan Xuan is still not quite over Ying Jie as she tries to appear.
Ying Jie comes home and feels somewhat strange to not see Man An waiting for him at work but Xuan Xuan assures him that Man An is probably just worried about getting in his way. Pausing before she leaves, Xuan Xuan tells Ying Jie that she is really happy that things worked out so wonderfully for Man An and him. Thanking Xuan Xuan for her words, Ying Jie expresses his gratitude for what Xuan Xuan did to force him to face his own feeling for Man An.
I totally thought something was going to happen to Ying Jie but now it looks like something might've happen to Man An instead. Seriously, that girl can't stay out of trouble.
Crushed to hear Xiang Ning's words, Man Li yells at Li Qi "You can't truly forgive me and I was too drunk that night to even be able to say the words that could defend myself." Unable to deny everything Man Li is saying, Li Qi can only remain silent when Man Li storms away.
I was impressed with how Man Li handled the whole thing. She told Li Qi that while she still trust him but there is no denying that maybe their relationship doesn't have enough foundation of trust.
Remembering the image of a struggling Xiang Ning being dragged away as the last picture he saw before he passed out, Li Qi immediately goes on a search for Xiang Ning when he wakes up. Following Xiang Ning's scattered possession, Li Qi finds her huddling with her torn cloth in a state of shock.
Worried about Li Qi who took a sick day from work, Man Li shows up at his house to check on him only to find the doorbell unanswered. Assuring a nervous Xiang Ning that whoever rang the doorbell is now gone, Li Qi convinces her to let him go to the convenience store to get a few things. Li Qi opens the door and is stunned to find an excited Man Li who jumps up at the sight of him.
Wow, too many fires to put out. Let's start first with Li Qi's crisis. I am suspecting strongly that Xiang Ning set up the whole thing with the three gangsters. I feel kinda bad suspecting a woman setting up something so horrifying just to get a guy but judging from her confidence that she can get Li Qi even when he obviously has no interest in her, I am afraid she just might be that crazy. Of course why she would want a guy who stays with her only out of guilt is beyond me.
