EPISODE 27 RECAP
Before we arrive at that happy scene above, let's backtrack - we were at Shi De's face turning sour seeing Qi Ming coming home with Yi Ru. Dad tells Yi Ru to put Qi Ming into his own room; then he apologizes to Shi De and Aunt, saying that their house would be busy for the night, effectively asking them to leave.
Our boy is brooding but fear not - Yi Ru remembers (clearly shows how important Shi De is to her now) and calls him. She apologizes for the rush earlier and says that she'll pick him up at his office the next day at 10am. Appeased now (rival, what rival?), our boy asks after Qi Ming's welfare and earns extra brownie points.
Some cliched filming follows - Shi De plays tic-tac-toe with the kids. The next often-used orphanage scene - film the kids talking about their dreams. The kid sponsored by Shi De can't answer the question, but the whole class answers for her "Her dream is to marry Uncle (Shi De) and become a mother!" while she buries her head in mortification. HAHA the girl has an eye for quality, that's for sure.
Well, says Yi Ru, if you work hard enough, your dreams will come true! facing a kid on her left, although she is obviously flirting. Shi De (who is pleasantly less dense these days) picks up on it and repeats that statement, turning it into a question. Yi Ru gives him a noncommittal smile.
Because Show doesn't want to end on a high, we cut to Qi Ming coming out of the office - where Shi De and Yi Ru are returning. The second male lead thus witnesses the sweet moment between our newly confirmed lovebirds. Sigh. Sorry buddy, you're already too late.
