[flashback continues…] At the end of the workday, Su Yunjin finishes typing up the contract and emails it to CEO Xu. She gets a call from Cheng Zheng, letting her know he’s waiting outside her company
Su Yunjin needs to talk to Mo Yuhua about Zhou Ziyi.
Su Yunjin apologizes to Mo Yuhua for not telling her about Zhou Ziyi’s marriage. Mo Yuhua doesn’t blame Su Yunjin.
Mo Yuhua says she could accept Zhou Ziyi’s marriage because she is used to him hurting her feelings. However, she was devastated when he tried to end their friendship. Su Yunjin thinks Mo Yuhua should move on, but she can’t tell Mo Yuhua what to do. Su Yunjin says she has moved in with Cheng Zheng. Mo Yuhua is happy for Su Yunjin and Cheng Zheng.
It’s hard to catch a taxi at night, so Meng Xue asks Cheng Zheng for a ride back to her hotel.
Finding out that Cheng Zheng and Su Yunjin are living together, Meng Xue stops playing games and emails Su Yunjin the information for the contract. For some reason, the information from Meng Xue doesn’t match the information Su Yunjin got from Elsa. Su Yunjin tells Cheng Zheng to take her back to her company.
Meng Xue wonders if Cheng Zheng still likes Su Yunjin if Su Yunjin accepted him from the start. Cheng Zheng isn’t sure, so he is grateful Su Yunjin waited until he is more mature before they start their relationship.
CEO Xu tells Su Yunjin not to change the contract. All along, he plans to work with another company while trying to hold off Meng Xue’s side. Since Su Yunjin and Meng Xue don’t get along, he forces them to work together, expecting Meng Xue to drag out the negotiation to make Su Yunjin look bad. Disappointed, Su Yunjin realizes he has been using her.
Cheng Zheng drops Meng Xue off at her hotel and speeds off.
To CEO Xu, the end justifies the means. He says people are selfish, and there is nothing wrong with taking advantage of people’s selfishness for one’s own gain. Su Yunjin doesn’t think like him. For example, her goal is to work hard, and she hopes to be compensated fairly for her effort.
