Shi Guang and the same reporter as last time are getting ready for an interview. The report apologizes for the delay, and Shi Guang tells her not to worry about it. The reporter tells him that they were very happy to receive his response since she is sure that he receives a lot of requests. Shi Guang tells her that he admires her hard work, and it’s why he always deals with her. The camera man tells them that they are ready to roll and they get into position.

Jing Zhi wakes up the next morning and goes into Ling Qiao’s room to find that he is already gone. She looks despondent and mutters about no one caring about her. She goes to the kitchen and calls Dong Dong and tells him to go drinking with him that night. Dong Dong tells her to not be like that and since she drank so much the night before she must feel sick. Jing Zhi starts telling him how high a heart broken woman’s alcohol tolerance is and then she stops. She tells Dong Dong to wait a second as she puts down the phone and checks her elbows. She finds that she is completely healed and she smiles knowing what happened. When she picks back up the phone Dong Dong tells her to not be so heartbroken and if she really wants to go out drinking he’ll go with her. Jing Zhi tears into him being a bad manager and encouraging her to drink.

This shot is framed to focus only on Jing Zhi, and she is having a conversation with an imaginary Ling Qiao. (Admit it we’ve all had imaginary conversations. She tears into him inquiring why he gave her treatment, and understanding that she was in a bad place but that isn’t a reason. She inquires why he didn’t do it when she was more conscience of the situation. She teases him about liking her, and then the camera pans out and she’s a lone.

Ling Qiao has an insurance policy written up and he meets with the broker at a coffee shop. He notices that Yan Zhi is also there, and he ease drops on Yan Zhi conversation. Yan Zhi signs the up-dated policy tells them that her will contact him if there is anything else. The brokers talks amongst themselves how he’s the police officer that rejected Jing Zhi, one thought it was odd that the policy still has her as the beneficiary. His partner tells him that they were childhood sweethearts and his policies always have her as the beneficiary. Ling Qiao signs off on his policy and he too names Jing Qiao as him beneficiary.

Jing Zhi comes out with a packet of flyers for butler and bodyguard companies. She mutters how she can’t believe that he thought of this to keep her away. Dong Dong mentions it and she tells him to mind his own business. She contemplates about Ling Qiao being serendipity, and how at the beginning it was selfish but after a while people naturally develop feelings for each other. She tells Dong Dong that there are only 2 things that are equal in life, death and time, and neither of them applies to him. Dong Dong tells Jing Zhi that she should stop trying to follow the like because she’ll simply find a mirage and sink even further. She tells him that she’s already drowning and she’s grasping a straw to see if there is a boat. Dong Dong wishes her luck though he’s not certain that she’s ever had any. She hits him with a pillow and asks when he learnt to talk back to her.

Ling Qiao is walking with his student and his mother and they were talking about him leaving. The mother is certain that a lot of people will be sad to see him go and she could never thank him for all he’s done to take care of them. He tells her not to take it to heart; his student tells his mom that she should hug Ling Qiao like she hugs him. Which leads to the most awkward hug ever.

He warns her, but the mother doesn’t seem to mind but she starts placing her, and Jing Zhi leaves.  Ling Qiao apologizes for what happens however the mother is still trying to place her.

Dong Dong asks if Jing Zhi got the answer she wanted. She confirmed that she did, she claims that Ling Qiao is like a siren, he has a beautiful voice but if you get too close then he’ll eat you up. Dong Dong mentions that he won’t even eat her, and she tells him to drive.

Xuan Xuan asks if Jing Zhi invited her over just to tell her that she got into a fight with her boyfriend and he moved out to live with her assistant. Jing Zhi tells her that she actually asked her to come over to gossip and asks why she brought a book. She tells Jing Zhi that she’s working. There is a tv adaptation of the book that she’s auditioning for. Xuan Xuan tells her that the book is called unworthy and she likens it to Jing Zhi’s relationship with Ling Qiao. Jing Zhi agrees that Ling Qiao doesn’t deserve her, and Xuan Xuan comments that she’s not sure what Ling Qiao sees in her.

Ling Zhi asks Xuan Xuan if she thinks that Ling Qiao really likes her. She’s shocked and asks Ling Zhi if she’s been dating Ling Qiao all this time without really knowing, which she nods as answer.
