Jiu Chen keeps drinking tea to stay awake while working. Ling Xi worries he is drinking too much tea.
Jiu Chen can’t wave a finger to extinguish the candles in his room. Now he has to blow them out one by one. After drinking so much tea during the day, he can’t sleep at night.
Jiu Chen wants to go for a stroll and tells Ling Xi not to follow him.
Ling Xi discretely follows Jiu Chen anyway. She hides by turning invisible or into something that blends in with the surrounding if he looks her way. Fed up, he tells her to stop.
Caught in the rain, Ling Xi holds an umbrella over Jiu Chen’s head to keep him from getting wet. Jiu Chen orders her to stop following him, and he walks away.
Resuming his position as the God of War, Jiu Chen makes personnel changes to fill Yuan Tong’s spot. Thunder Lord can’t attend the meeting because he is “sick.” Zi Guang isn’t happy when Jiu Chen puts him under Kai Yang’s command.
It’s time for Qing Yao to remove the seal on Jiu Chen’s power. Ling Xi can’t believe 49 days have passed so quickly.
Ling Xi wants to watch Qing Yao treat Jiu Chen, but Jiu Chen tells Ling Xi to go do her chores. Qing Yao asks Yun Feng to leave, too.
Yun Feng says it isn’t possible to get near gods with deep cultivation like him or Jiu Chen. Ling Xi remembers one of the panels in a cave at Immortal Elder Nanji’s place showed her kissing Jiu Chen, which means Jiu Chen would have to allow her to kiss him.
Qing Yao tells Jiu Chen to be careful when using his power. His cold illness has receded, but it isn’t gone completely.
Wanting to talk to Yuan Tong, Jiu Chen sends Shi San to find her. Shi San hates Yuan Tong, so she tells Hua Yan to do it. Hua Yan is scared of Yuan Tong, so she begs Ling Xi to go with her.
Ling Xi tells Yuan Tong that Jiu Chen wants to see her. A loud noise interrupts their conversation. It is Old Madame Yuan, and she has killed herself with Yuan Zheng’s weapon. Devastated, Yuan Tong looks at Ling Xi with hatred.
Old Madame Yuan’s suicide shocks Ling Xi and Hua Yan. They can’t bear to tell Shi San what happened. Hua Yan figures Shi San will know soon enough.
Jiu Chen finds Ling Xi crying in an isolated spot. He tells her not to blame herself. It’s Old Madame Yuan’s fault for putting the Yuan clan’s prestige above everything. Consequently, it’s fated Yuan Zheng and Yuan Tong would do wrong things to appease their mother’s ambition. Ling Xi wonders if it’s possible to escape fate.
Ling Xi asks Jiu Chen about her bracelet. Jiu Chen says the bracelet recognizes her as its owner, so she can’t remove it. He thinks she should let Immortal Elder Nanji know she has it now. Ling Xi doesn’t dare to go by herself, so Jiu Chen offers to go with her.
As Jiu Chen and Ling Xi leave the Heaven Realm, they pass by Yuan Tong, who is one of the gatekeepers. Yuan Tong greets them. Jiu Chen ignores her while Ling Xi bows in response.
Ling Xi asks Jiu Chen if they can travel on a cloud together. Jiu Chen tells Ling Xi to turn into a bird and fly.
Busy with cultivation, Immortal Elder Nanji isn’t available. Nevertheless, he knew Jiu Chen and Ling Xi would come, so he told his disciples to tell Jiu Chen to accept what is destined, meaning Ling Xi should keep the bracelet. Jiu Chen says the “treasure” will be used well.
Yu Li’s bird poops on Ling Xi. Just as Ling Xi is about to teach it a lesson, Yu Li stops her and wants her to apologize to the bird. Ling Xi won’t do it. Yu Li’s bird scratches Ling Xi’s hand and flies away.
