This episode opens up with Mo Sheng searching diligently for the original photos that Xiao Xiao’s bed scene was photoshopped from. When she finally found it, she tried to contact Xiao Xiao but her phone was turned. She then decided to call Yi Cheng since he was her lawyer, she figured Yi Cheng would have a way to contact her. Yi Cheng told her that Xiao Xiao was with him and Mo Sheng said she would bring the original pictures over. Yi Cheng replied I will wait for you. (is that a double meaning or what?)
Yi Cheng is standing at the entrance of his law firm waiting for Mo Sheng. As Mo Sheng rushes in she doesn’t expect to see him standing there and gets a bit flustered. He shows her the way to his office.
Mo Sheng tells them a photographer friend has already analyzed the photos and spread the new on an online forum that the images were edited so the rumors would die down pretty soon. Her manager starts to say that with these images, they would sue all those that were making those false reports but Yi Cheng says they will only sue the first magazine who released these news since they have the most influence and since Xiao Xiao’s career is reliant on media reports it best to leave some wiggle room to interact with the media later.
Seeing that Xiao Xiao looked fatigued, Mo Sheng tried to comfort her telling her not to worry and that everything would be alright. Xiao Xiao asked her why she was helping her even though she was suing her company and almost caused her to lose her job. Mo Sheng said that matter isn’t important right now and she didn’t keep it in her heart. (sometimes it’s just one word that resolves all the misunderstandings and it’s just a matter if we would express it or not and Mo Sheng expressed her feelings here) Being sensitive at this moment, Xiao Xiao started referring to past matters saying then what do you keep in your heart? Your best friend or He Yi Cheng? We are both not in your heart. That’s why you are able to leave without a second thought? Yi Cheng and Mo Sheng glances awkwardly at each other and Yi Cheng steps in stop Xiao Xiao from proceeding further but she continues saying that if Mo Sheng hadn’t left, she probably wouldn’t get to this state. Mo Sheng apologizes but realizing her outburst, Xiao Xiao apologizes instead and leaves the room.
Mo Sheng goes to tell Xiao Xiao that she knows she is under a lot of stress and to not worry too much since they are heading inthe correct direction. However Xiao Xiao says there’s not a lot of people who would believe that the photos are fake. Mo Sheng says those who believe in her will believe those photos are fake and that is enough. We should not hope for everyone to understand as long as there’s no guilt in our hearts. She tells her that if is saddened by those who hate her then she is letting down those who support and like her. Xiao Xiao then perks up upon hearing those words saying that she is right and that she needs to stand even stronger and taller for those who are supporting her.
Mo Sheng then says that no matter what happens, as long as your are happy, then it’s fine, don’t force yourself to much. Xiao Xiao hugs her saying that she hasn’t heard of those words in a long time. She tells her that in this business, no one cares about you as a person and she has been charging forward all along because only by rushing ahead will she not be trampled by others and they made up.
Xiao Xiao then tells her manager that they will hold a press conference tomorrow and release the evidence to the media while Yi Cheng will be in charge of the lawsuit and then she leaves for to prepare for the conference the following day, leaving Yi Cheng and Mo Sheng to be alone. Their countenance change from being ecstatic at Xiao Xiao for standing up again to being awkward. Yi Cheng offers Mo Sheng a ride home in which Mo Sheng declines saying there is a bus that takes her directly to her apartment.
Mo Sheng waits for the bus looking a bit glum. While Mo Sheng is taking the bus home, she keeps pondering about her college days with Yi Cheng and didn’t realize she has already reached the final stop. Outside, you see Yi Cheng’s car following the bus.
When she gets off the bus, Yi Cheng drives up confusing Mo Sheng as to why he’s there at the moment and he tells her to get in the car. He tells her that he saw her get on the wrong bus which Mo Sheng asks why he didn’t call her to let her know. Yi Cheng replies that he followed along to see when she would realize her mistake but finds out she is just as foolish as she was in college.
Xiao Xiao has a successful press conference, suppressing all the rumors and her popularity has been greater than before.
At work, the chief editor releases the news that the lawsuit has been canceled and shortly after, Yi Cheng gives Mo Sheng a call saying that as Xiao Xiao’s lawyer he felt that it was necessary for him to let her know that the lawsuit has been dropped. We see a genuine smile on Mo Sheng’s face after he hangs up since all the ugly matter has official ended. (I suspect Yi Cheng called Mo Sheng just to hear her voice)
Xiao Xiao then invites Mo Sheng for dinner thanking her for efforts in finding those original photos and invites Yuan Feng also since Mo Sheng insisted he played a major role in changing the netizen’s views. Xiao Xiao then invites Yi Cheng for dinner in which he declines but upon hearing that Mo Sheng is also coming with a coworker, he decides to go.
Before entering the restaurant Yuan Feng firmly tells Mo Sheng that he treats others the way others treat him. If others anger him, he won’t back down. In which Mo Sheng says lets all take a step back and reduce any conflicts if they were to occur and heads into the restaurant where they find Yi Cheng already waiting, stunning Mo Sheng because she didn’t know Yi Cheng would be there.
She sits down with Yuan Feng and Yi Cheng asks her to introduce them which she address Yi Cheng as Lawyer Yi and says Xiao Xiao had invited Yuan Feng for helping out with releasing analysis of the photos online. Yi Cheng realizes that Xiao Xiao had told him a white lie saying Mo Sheng was bringing along a coworker so that it would raise curiosity in Yi Cheng. Yuan Feng reminds Yi Cheng that they had actually met before when Yi Mei accidentally hit when he was riding a bike surprising Mo Sheng that they would know each other. Yi Cheng tells Mo Sheng that she can drop the lawyer title since they had been close friends. Yuan Feng surprised that they were close friends inquires about it which Mo Sheng says they were college classmates and Yi Cheng says they had been in a relationship further causing an awkward atmosphere. (Yi Cheng is purposefully trying to let Yuan Feng know that they used to date since he is trying to win her back and prevent others from chasing after Mo Sheng)
Once Xiao Xiao arrives, Yuan Feng looks at her disapprovingly causing Xiao Xiao to comment on his weird look and they both starting bickering and fighting over the menu. Their fight escalates and Xiao Xiao angrily stands up and bumps into the waiter spilling hot tea all over her, ending their dinner and they head to the hospital.
At the hospital, the two continue bickering and Yi Cheng stops Mo Sheng from interfering between them saying that they would make up themselves which indeed Yuan Feng is appeasing Xiao Xiao the best he can since he had caused her to be injured. Both of them then leaves Xiao Xiao and Yuan Feng without even telling them and they leave separately. (Is this the same hospital that they used in “Shan Shan Come to Eat” can someone confirm/refute this claim)
Yi Cheng gets a call from a friend saying that his wife saw him at the hospital recently and demands that he bring Yi Cheng to go on a date with their daughter. Yi Cheng replies that he already has a girlfriend which his friend does not believe but Yi Cheng insists so he lets it go.
After that Yi Cheng gets a call from Yi Mei saying that she couldn’t go to lunch with him and he will need to meet her friend directly. In the phone call, Yi Mei could feel that Yi Cheng is in a good mood. She knows that it is because of Mo Sheng so she decides to give up on Yi Cheng. ( I was so confused as to why he would say he had a girlfriend but I think this is related to his previous quote in episode 5 “claiming the rights to it in advance”. I think he has already set his mind on having Mo Sheng as his girlfriend so he is just claiming he has a girlfriend beforehand.)
At work Xiao Hong is going on a blind date and makes Mo Sheng go with her since they are the only two older single women in the office and there are two men attending this blind date and she can’t handle them both. Mo Sheng refuses and tells her to meet one person at a time but Xiao Hong replies that meeting each person separately is not efficient. Mo Sheng says she doesn’t want to go on a blind date but Xiao Hong corrects her saying she isn’t going on a blind date but to help out a friend. She then takes out all the wigs and glasses saying she will turn her uglier to beautify herself.
