Back to the current time line, Sheng Nan pays her old school a visit because of her work and ends up getting smacked by Qian Yao's basketball ...again. Ignoring Sheng Nan's protest, Qian Yao picks her up in his arms and wonders out loud "The same basketball court, the same person in the same position...this sure is a familiar feeling. You seem to get hit by basketballs rather easily?"
Trying to come up with any excuse to see Vivienne, Justin insists on driving his assistant home...all the way to Vivienne's house. Not giving his assistant to finish his sentence of "Boss. I thought you were taking me home, but this is not..." Justin quickly sends the poor guy on his way.
Vivienne's self deprecating words finally pushed Justin into action. Standing in front of Vivienne, Justin softly says "I don't think of you that way." Tears forming in her eyes, Vivienne insists "You do think of me that way." Pulling Vivienne into his arms, Justin mutters "When I saw someone else kissing you...I felt like you were being snatched away. But I don't want you to be taken away from me."
Taking Vivienne by the shoulders, Justin continues "And I don't know what I should do."
Tears falling as she watches Justin slowly walks back to his car and drives away, Vivienne starts to run after Justin's car but finally stops when Justin disappeared from her sight.
Unbeknownst to CEO Jin, Qian Yao has already caught the photographer that has been spying on him and after deleting all of Sheng Nan's pictures, Qian Yao bribes the photographer to take pictures of him kissing Vivienne instead.
In the mean time, while Vivienne has arrived at Qian Yao's company for a meeting, Sheng Nan has finished her tearful confession to Qian Yao and has just walked out to the lobby as well. Chasing Sheng Nan all the way to the lobby, Qian Yao arrives in time to see the crazy man pouring gasoline on Vivienne and igniting a lighter. Springing into action as Sheng Nan covers Vivienne with her own body, Qian Yao throws himself at the man and the fire thankfully goes out as it falls to the floor.
Hiding her disappointment as Justin reiterate again to the detective that he is just friends with her, Vivienne accepts Qian Yao's offer to drive her home.
Ignoring Vivienne's assessment that he must be trying to use her in some way, Qian Yao assures a very doubtful Vivienne that he only wants to keep their relationship on a pure professional level.
Suddenly remembering she has been forgetting something very important, Mama Cai rushes out to the peach blossom tree and to her great dismay she realizes that her daughter's life might still be in danger. Something about the peach blossom tree giving it's life energy to the cactus...and the cactus growing two extra shoots...I didn't get it but that's why I am not the peach blossom goddess.
In a scene from next week's preview, Justin says to Vivienne "I really dislike the feeling of liking you. I have become unlike myself." I think that sentence pretty much summed up the biggest problem between our two leads. They are obviously in love with each other but they dislike how weak it has made them become so they take turns pushing each other away even as their hearts refuse to let them simply end it.
By the way, remember I said that I wasn't sure I like Sheng Nan last week? I definitely like her after this week's episode. How can you dislike a girl who is willing to jump into harms way to protect her nemesis?
