Mildly surprised when he walks into the restaurant to see Yu Tang with Zhi Yu, Wen Kai greeted the duo in a friendly manner but couldn't help but steal a glance when Yu Tang and Zhi Yu laughs together over their similar taste in food.
Also keenly aware of Wen Kai eating dinner with Elsa at the next table, Yu Tang pauses unconsciously when Wen Kai kindly helps Elsa put on her loose bracelet and apologizes for not making sure the bracelet was in good working order before giving it to her as a present.
Walking out of the building under Wen Kai's personal escort once again, a puzzled Zhi Yu asks "If you know my true intention then why are you still willing to let me have a chance to get close to Department 3?" I am assuming his true intention is Yu Tang. Smiling confidently, Wen Kai assures Zhi Yu that he has no reason to block such a good deal when he knows full well that Yu Tang only approached Zhi Yu purely out of business consideration. Undaunted, Zhi Yu promises that he will be sure to make frequent "business" visit to Department 3.
A bit disappointed when she gets to Wen Kai's house with the race car in hand to find him gone, Yu Tang nonetheless strikes up a conversation with Wen Kai's best friend (Sheng Ren) who just happens to be there AND in possession of a house key. Clueless that Wen Kai had blamed him for all the squid treat he had won at the store, Sheng Ren loudly protests to a confused Yu Tang that he is too cool to play the pay and draw sort of games. Connecting Sheng Ren's words to the store owner's account of some handsome lad's quest for squid treats, Yu Tang starts to wonder if maybe Wen Kai had purposefully searched out the squid treat for her.
Convinced that his best friend must have a crush on Yu Tang, Sheng Ren asks her to explain how her relationship with Wen Kai has become so bad after being high school classmates. Equally puzzled herself, Yu Tang tells Sheng Ren about the confrontation that changed her friendship with Wen Kai.
Worried about Wen Kai's safety when she sees him being surrounded by a bunch of high school boys, Yu Tang steps in to intervene and forces Wen Kai to leave.
Exasperated after listening to Yu Tang's story, Sheng Ren is even more convinced that Yu Tang and Wen Kai must like each other.
Waving off Wen Kai's offer to take her home, Yu Tang protests that she is not drunk and proceeds to complain that Wen Kai had set up a trap for her to become Department One's target. In the middle of her declaration that she is not so easily defeated, Yu Tang pushes the unsuspecting Wen Kai on the sofa and of course ends up right on top of him as well.
Narrowing her eyes at Wen Kai's taunting question, Yu Tang leans in...
What thoughts? I have none other than shaking my fist at the director for making me wait a whole week to see if we get a kiss or not!
Okay, fine, I still have a few measly words left in me. So if it wasn't apparent before, it is pretty obvious after this episode that while Wen Kai might've harbored a crush on Yu Tang back in their school days, Yu Tang did plenty for Wen Kai as well. The only thing that puzzles me a bit is how dense does our heroine must be to not figure out that the hurtful things she said to "motivate/protect" our hero could be the reason Wen Kai distanced himself from her.
Heroine's obvious lack of understanding in male pride aside, I do find Wen Kai's remark of "Do you believe me if I tell you that I am helping her for a secret reason?" to his best friend intriguing. I can't figure out what secret reason Wen Kai could have other than maybe he feel indebted to Yu Tang's family for helping him out when he was young??
Still, secret reason or not, I agree with Sheng Ren when he said "Sure, I believe you. But I don't think that's your main reason."
ps. Show! We better get a kiss next week!!
