EPISODE 28 RECAP
We rewind a bit before Qi Ming comes out of the office. He gets a call from that company rep who tells him that his proposal got shortlisted. The office celebrates his first (small) victory and he goes out to buy drinks. And that's when he sees Yi Ru and Shi De returning. And then, they all see each other.
Somehow, Yu Xiang is also dressed up, all ready to take Shi Yun in so she doesn't have to go alone. Sounds nice put like that, but I still don't trust this boy. Shi Yun appears touched by his gesture, while Yan Kai comes in all proprietary. Yu Xiang graciously steps back and pats them ahead - except hands off! Yan Kai detonates. Why are you taking it out on other people? Shi Yun responds and walks off.
Because Shi De's day off is very long, he is still waiting for Yi Ru till she finishes her work, and surprises her with a bouquet of flowers. They have some cute exchanges before she turns serious and asks, "Can you accept the presence of Sun Qi Ming?" She leans into him when he doesn't answer immediately (girls knows how to work her advantage). "You know that we have a very special relationship. He's my boss, a friend who's like family, and my ex-boyfriend (why did you people make this so complicated??). I wouldn't wish for my dad to lose a son, or for my sister to lose a brother to spoil her, or for me to lose a close friend just because we got together."
