Hye Ji (Son Na Eun) is sitting at home working when she pricked her finger. She remembers the last time that she saw Ji Woon. He asks her if she remembers when he told her he’d protect her. She admits that she does and he tells her that though he can’t protect her from the scars that Hyun Min already gave her she can stop it from happening again. He tells her that he thought of something that he can do for her but doesn’t tell her what.

Ha Won walks into her room and replay Ji Woon’s admission of stealing Ha Won from Hyun Min again in her mind. She wonders what he’s thinking. She steps out on the patio and notices Ji Woon standing there looking at her. She is shell-shocked for a second but then steps back in. She looks out her window and then further into her room, leaving a curious Ji Woon in her wake.

Seo Woo starts piecing together her agenda to find out when her birthday is. He’s excited that he’s figured out that it’s in May. But he suddenly realises that is shouldn’t concern him when her birthday is.

The next morning Ha Won comes out to find Hyun Min waiting for her. He asks if her heart is racing from what Ji Woon told her. She tells him it isn’t. He warns her that the only person in Ji Woon’s heart is Hye Ji and he doesn’t want her to get hurt. Ji Woon walks by and tells them if they want to talk behind his back they best do it somewhere else.

Ha Won meets with Chairman Kang (Kim Yong Geon) and he is thrilled about the picture. She complains that it should have been in focus but he tells her not to worry. Yoon Sung tells her that he’s prepared the 1st year of college tuition as well as her cash bonus. She complains that it’s too much but the Chairman assures her that he’s not paying her enough for her skills.

Once they leave, Ha Won asks Yoon Sung if he’s the one who told the Chairman about her mother’s crematorium. He doesn’t understand at first then she mentions that it’s odd that the money left to pay for her mother’s spot is equal to her bonus. He apologises and she tells him it’s ok . When he offers to take her to the crematorium she tells him that she’ll take the bus. He starts to nag her about coming home at a reasonable time and she tells him that he reminds her of her parents.

Soo Kyung (Choi Eun Kyeong) is at work when she sees Ji Hwa Ja’s (Kim Hye Ri) name in the list. She asks if she can take over the appointment and since Hwa Ja doesn’t have a preference yet of which girl she has the other girl agrees. She starts chattering with the woman and she tells her that there is a rumour that a woman is living at the sky house. She admits that her daughter heard it from school and Hwa Ji tells her that there is too much chatter.

Soo Kyung calls Yoo Na (Ko Bo Gyeol) and tells her that it seems to be true that Ha Won is living at the Sky House. Yoo Na starts throwing a tantrum and Soo Kyung mentions that it’s not like she’s going to marry one of them.

She tells her that the 2nd eldest took his own life and the other 2 died in a car accident at the same time.She’s told that none of the boys have never come to mourn their father’s death anniversary.  She understands that the death of a parent is less painful that the death of a child so they should at least show some respect to their grandfather.

She goes to the CEO and tells her that she wants to give it a try. He warns her that it’ll be difficult. She agrees but she tells him that it’s more important than anything else. She tells him that she really wants to succeed because she thinks that their fathers want to see them.

Yoon Sung comes in and asks if he accepted. He admits that he wants to believe in her but it’s been 10 years since he’s been doing it on his own.

Ji Woon is swimming when Ha Won checks on him. She notices that he’s wearing swim shorts. When he pops up she asks if he’s not wearing anything he tells her that she’ll find out when he gets out. She tells him she doesn’t care since he said he’s liked her. She wonders if he would be able to say that in front of Hye Ji. She asks if it’s his hobby to have complicated relationships because he, Hyun Min and Hye Ji share a love triangle and she wonders why he’s trying to force her into the mix. He says it is and she offers to come in with him ‘naked’ since he likes it so much. He tells her to stop playing around and gets out of the pool. She smiles and realises that his innocent and goes for  a swim.
