Stunning everyone when she presents herself at the lunchroom to fulfill her second wish of sharing teatime with her department, Alice's co-workers eagerly invites her to keep showing up for their tea times. Keenly aware that she might not be long for this world, Alice hesitantly assures a hopeful Hao Yi "I have 50% chance of coming..."
Pacing with unease when Alice fails to show up, Hao Yi shakes his head in denial when a very impatient Shu Lei tries to convince him that Alice had arrange the whole thing out of revenge.
Definitely not sitting at home plotting revenge, Alice is instead struggling fiercely to protect her precious research. Displeased when Alice refused to follow his order and betray their company by selling off her research elsewhere, Alice's boss resorts to sending his secretary in disguise to threaten her. Refusing to give up her team's hard work, Alice fights against the intruder and ends up passing out when her head accidentally hit the ground during their struggle.
Knowing full well that she might not have much time left, Alice tells Hao Yi briefly about her momentary consideration of betraying her company and how her eventual refusal had caused someone's attempt to forcefully take her research from her. Pleading with Hao Yi to protect her life's hard work, Alice tells him "I have put my research in a place no one knows. I will tell you where that is because you are the only one I trust."
Surprised when he turns around to find Alice has disappeared, Hao Yi searches for her desperately especially after he sees his assistant's text and realizes that Alice must've come to the conclusion that he has been trying to get close to her with an agenda in mind.
Overjoyed when Alice finally opens his eyes, Hao Yi eagerly holds her hand but looks at her uncertainly when she pulls her hand away. Assuming Alice must still be angry with him, Hao Yi rattles on about the operation...until Alice glares at him and yells "He Hao Yi! The jerk who framed me with the cigarettes!"
Reluctant when her mother insists on leaving her at Hao Yi's house, Alice takes comfort in the fact that she will at least see Xiao Fen (Hao Yi's twin sister) soon. Up to this point Alice has asked several times for her two best friends but Hao Yi has avoided that topic whenever he could.
Stunned when he finally figures out that Alice's memory cuts off right after he threw her into the pool, Hao Yi says in dismay "Why did you choose to end your memory when your impression of me was the worst?" Confused, Alice replies "Did I actually ever had a good impression of you?" Huffy, Hao Yi protests "Of course! I was the school's most popular guy. Everyone liked me." but gets even more offended when Alice insists that some other boy was the popular one.
As per the law of the drama land, a wayward basketball suddenly heads our heroine's way and Hao Yi saves Alice just in time. Looking up at Alice as they lay in a rather familiar position, Hao Yi hopes that Alice would remember the similar way he saved her 13 years ago but alas our heroine just blinks at him in confusion.
Not noticing Hao Yi's unease when she mentioned her best friends, Alice turns her attention to her lunch and accidentally knocks her water glass off the table.
Thoughtful when she comes across a passage in the comic book that says "No one can determine fate." Alice makes a daring decision right then to go to her company the next day because she can't just rely on Hao Yi's protection but has to make her own destiny.
Unbeknownst to our hero, Alice's memory didn't cut off at a random place but was due to Alice's wish during her operation that she would be able to go back to when she was the happiest. I am assuming being thrown into the pool wasn't Alice's happiest memory but the fact that at that particular point she still had two best friends and Hao Yi was just an annoying boy who liked to pick on her. So, this begs the question: Does Alice wish that she never befriended Hao Yi?
Oh, well. I guess there is enough blame to go around since our heroine is definitely guilty of treating her friendship with Peter too lightly. In fact, judging by how the only two things Alice did for Peter were to thank him for all his help and buying him breakfast as her way of saying goodbye, I wonder if our heroine even considers Peter more than a causal friend.
