Yuan Tong destroys the war report. Only Ling Xi can repair it, so without her, Jiu Chen can’t find out what happened at Mount Youdu. Yuan Tong says she did everything to make him love her, but he loves Ling Xi to the extent of protecting her family and friends. Yun Feng sees Yuan Tong’s war report in pieces.
Jiu Chen tells Yun Feng to wait for Ling Xi to return so that she can repair the war report. However, it doesn’t matter what Yuan Tong had done if Qing Yao tampered with the pills.
A’Mo asks Jing Xiu about Jiu Chen and Ling Xi. Jing Xiu says the Heaven Tribe decided to execute Ling Xi, fearing she was colluding with the Demon Tribe to release the Demon King. Jiu Chen pretended to kill her but preserved her soul to create A’Mo. If A’Mo passes the trial in the Mortal Realm, Ling Xi will be reborn when A’Mo dies. Jing Xiu promises to protect A’Mo because he cares about her, not Ling Xi.
To save Qing Yao, Yun Feng takes responsibility for what happened to Yuan Tong’s soldiers at Mount Youdu. As a result, he is sealed in stone for 1,000 years and struck by lightning twice every day. Qing Yao begs Jiu Chen to save Yun Feng, but Jiu Chen says it isn’t possible to reverse a decree by the Heavenly Emperor.
Jiu Chen looks at Yun Feng’s statue. He had told Yun Feng not to act hastily.
Yun Feng bolsters Jiu Chen’s Fire Essene. Jiu Chen wants to go save Ling Xi from Jing Xiu and help her pass her trial. Jiu Chen’s teacher orders Jiu Chen to leave Ling Xi to fate, and if she fails, he will destroy her soul in the Shennong Cauldron. Si Ming says the heavens will bless Ling Xi.
In A’Mo’s nightmare, Ling Xi takes over her life. Then people turn to dust and vanish, including Physician Sun, Madam Guan, Teacher Shen, the Lin family, Zhu Zizai, Bao Suozhu, Jiu Chen, Ling Xi and, lastly, A’Mo.
Watching A’Mo having a nightmare, Jing Xiu vows to protect her.
Jiu Chen thinks about Ling Xi. Si Ming tells Jiu Chen to go to a meeting convened by the Heavenly Emperor.
Accusing Qing Yao of distributing pills that didn’t protect against demonic energy, Yuan Tong says her soldiers turned demonic while stationed at Mount Youdu, so she had to kill them. Yun Feng defends Qing Yao while Thunder Lord calls for her punishment. Jiu Chen interrogates Yuan Tong. Qing Yao accepts responsibility to prevent an investigation, which could expose what Jiu Chen did to save Ling Xi.
Si Ming doesn’t believe Yuan Tong because there were holes in her story when Jiu Chen interrogated her. Jiu Chen also suspects Yuan Tong, but he isn’t certain Qing Yao didn’t tamper with the pills, so he has to go to Mount Youdu to investigate.
A’Mo tells Jiu Chen not to abandon her or lie to her.
Jiu Chen kisses A’Mo’s forehead while she is sleeping, and then he disappears.
The next morning, A’Mo wakes up and can’t find Jiu Chen anywhere.
A’Mo looks at the harbor, wondering where Jiu Chen has gone. Physician Sun and Madam Guan notice A’Mo seems sad.
After work, A’Mo arrives home, hoping to see Jiu Chen, but there is only Xiao Bai.
Winds rattle the doors and windows, causing A’Mo to run to Jiu Chen’s room because she thinks he has come back.
Jiu Chen monitors A’Mo. Si Ming doesn’t know what to say to comfort him.
A’Mo eats alone, but she sets the table for two as if Jiu Chen is still with her.
Physician Sun tells A’Mo to take a couple of days off because she doesn’t look well.
A’Mo leaves the gate to her house open.
Worried about Jiu Chen, A’Mo falls sick.
Si Ming says Ling Xi’s trial will be over soon, and then she can return to the Heaven Realm. Jiu Chen continues to monitor her.
A’Mo prepares a lot of food for Xiao Bai because she will be gone for a while.
A’Mo asks people for directions to Jiu Chen’s hometown, but no one knows where it is.
Si Ming asks Jiu Chen if the name of Jiu Chen’s hometown is a real place. Jiu Chen rushes back to A’Mo.
A’Mo keeps on looking for Jiu Chen’s hometown.
It’s raining heavily, so A’Mo begs an innkeeper to let her stay for the night. The innkeeper says his place is reserved for government officials, but he allows A’Mo to sleep in a shed nearby.
Jiu Chen appears in the shed after A’Mo falls asleep. Waking up and seeing him, she asks if he likes her because she looks like Ling Xi. Jiu Chen apologizes, unable to tell her the truth.
Jiu Chen reserves a room in an inn for A’Mo. He leaves to get food for her, but she grabs his hand. Jiu Chen says he will come back.
Si Ming says A’Mo will die on her birthday, which coincides with the Mountain Spirit Tribe’s Blood Moon Festival. Ling Xi passed the life hardship when the Lin family tried to kill her and she survived. Her second hardship is death. Jiu Chen asks about the third hardship, but Si Ming refuses to explain further.
The demonic mark behind A’Mo’s ear causes her to scream out in pain. Jiu Chen says she is sick and will get better. A’Mo believes him and says she wants to go home.
Resting at home, A’Mo’s condition deteriorates. Jiu Chen says he will go buy food for her. A’Mo asks Jiu Chen to get Physician Sun.
Jiu Chen tells Xiao Bai to watch A’Mo.
A’Mo checks her appearance in the mirror.
A’Mo eats a variety of things, and unable to taste them, she is devastated. Jiu Chen arrives home with Physician Sun.
Jiu Chen tells A’Mo to rest and not worry while Physician Sun researches medical books to find out what is wrong with her. A’Mo says Jiu Chen needs to rest, too.
The demonic mark behind A’Mo’s ear burns, making it hard for A’Mo to sleep. Jing Xiu tells A’Mo to come with him because if she stays, she will die.
Jing Xiu accuses Jiu Chen of sacrificing A’Mo to save Ling Xi. Jiu Chen and Jing Xiu fight. A’Mo asks what her sickness has to do with Ling Xi. Jiu Chen says A’Mo can become Ling Xi after she dies, shocking her.
Zhong Hao needs to abduct A’Mo for the Demon King. While Jiu Chen and Zhong Hao fight, Jing Xiu escapes with A’Mo. Si Ming worries because Jiu Chen’s Fire Essense has weakened considerably after fighting Jing Xiu and Zhong Hao. Jiu Chen tells Si Ming to alert Yun Feng, who must find A’Mo as soon as possible.
A’Mo coughs up blood and goes blind. Jing Xiu gives A’Mo his Life Pearl to prolong her life and restore her eyesight.
Old Madam Lin regrets how she treated A’Mo. After A’Mo left, the relationship between her grandmother and Lin Shaohai deteriorated. A’Mo comforts her grandmother.
Madam Lin is surprised to see A’Mo checking Old Madam Lin’s pulse and prescription. A’Mo says she works as a physician’s apprentice in a pharmacy.
Lin Zhan says she scolded Song Ziyu, who didn’t care about the engagement but caused a scene at the Lin family’s residence after finding out what A’Mo did from his housekeeper. Madam Lin, Lin Shaohai’s concubine and Lin Zhan are curious about Jiu Chen, but only Lin Zhan dares to ask A’Mo.
Jiu Chen impresses the servants with his demeanor.
Lin Shaohai rushes home. A’Mo cries and hugs him.
Lin Shaohai says he searched for her for half a year, but he had to return home when Old Madam Lin fell ill. A’Mo tells her father about Jiu Chen.
Jiu Chen shows Lin Shaohai documents to prove he is wealthy and can take care of A’Mo. However, Lin Shaohai only asks if Jiu Chen is serious about A’Mo. Jiu Chen vows to protect her with his life, and the oath pleases Lin Shaohai.
After visiting the Lin family, Jiu Chen and A’Mo return home. Xiao Bai is in the front yard to greet them.
Cheng Yan follows A’Mo, scaring her.
A’Mo warns Cheng Yan not to harm her or Jiu Chen will punish him. Cheng Yan says he just wanted to look at her from afar even though he promised his sister to stay away.
A’Mo asks Jiu Chen about Cheng Yan and Ling Xi because Cheng Yan called her by that name. Jiu Chen admits to knowing them but won’t explain further.
A’Mo discovers Jiu Chen’s longevity knot. Jiu Chen says someone gave it to him.
A’Mo begins to doubt Jiu Chen, wondering if he likes her because she looks like Ling Xi.
A’Mo stops playing chess with Jiu Chen to see who has come for a visit. It’s Si Ming.
Si Ming tells Jiu Chen to leave because it’s time for A’Mo to face the next hardship of her trial. A’Mo makes tea for Si Ming, but Si Ming says he can’t stay.
Jiu Chen says Si Ming is a friend. A’Mo wishes Si Ming could’ve stayed longer since he traveled from far away.
Jiu Chen tells A’Mo not to give up when life is hard because there are things worth cherishing, such as the people she loves, morality and justice. A’Mo asks Jiu Chen if he will always be with her, and Jiu Chen says he will.
Traveling to buy medicine, the Song family’s housekeeper sees A’Mo.
A’Mo asks Immortal Peng why he is standing outside her house. Immortal Peng says he is waiting for Jiu Chen’s permission to talk to him.
A’Mo tells Jiu Chen about Immortal Peng needing to talk to him. Immortal Peng has left, so Jiu Chen says it’s probably not important.
The Song family’s housekeeper scolds A’Mo for running away from home and living with a man. Confused and shocked, A’Mo finds out Jiu Chen isn’t her betrothed.
Jiu Chen says he has loved A’Mo for a long time. Thus, he pretends to be her betrothed to stay with her and protect her. A’Mo asks about his background, so he kisses her to stop her from talking.
A’Mo asks Jiu Chen about his background again, thinking he is joking when he says he is a god. Jiu Chen can’t answer her, so he makes her fall asleep.
Jiu Chen carries A’Mo to her room.
Immortal Peng apologizes if he unknowingly offended Jiu Chen. Jiu Chen tells Immortal Peng to create an identity for him, someone who is wealthy because Madam Guan had asked if he can take care of A’Mo.
The next morning, A’Mo wakes up, not remembering how she had fallen asleep.
Jiu Chen shows A’Mo documents about his background: his parents are dead, he has a brother, he was in the military, his business is in tea and salt, and lastly, he has a lot of properties. He hides documents stating he has concubines before A’Mo sees them.
A’Mo thinks about her grandmother when she sees a grandmother accompanied by her granddaughter at Physician Sun’s pharmacy. According to the Song family’s housekeeper, A’Mo’s grandmother fell ill after A’Mo ran away from home.
A’Mo gives the grandmother and granddaughter their medicinal herbs.
Madam Guan urges A’Mo to go visit Old Madam Lin. Physician Sun tells A’Mo to go with Jiu Chen for safety.
A’Mo says she wants to visit her family. Immediately, Jiu Chen agrees to go with her.
Arriving at the Lin family’s residence, A’Mo hesitates, so Jiu Chen knocks on the door. Seeing A’Mo, a maid alerts the household.
Jiu Chen stands behind A’Mo, watching her.
Madam Lin cries, glad to see A’Mo again. The Song family’s housekeeper had written to the Lin family, saying A’Mo is no longer mute and deaf. Lin Zhan mocks A’Mo for coming back. Lin Shaohai’s concubine tells Jiu Chen to wait for Lin Shaohai, who will be home soon.
Jiu Chen catches A’Mo trying to start a fire to thaw Xu Hai and Xu Hai’s underling. A’Mo says the elites in town have hired a Taoist priest, and she fears what he can do to Jiu Chen.
Jiu Chen unfreezes Xu Hai and Xu Hai’s underling.
A’Mo decides not to disturb Jiu Chen while he is in his room. Jiu Chen doesn’t know why A’Mo stands outside his room for a while and then leaves.
Jiu Chen asks A’Mo if she needs to talk to him.
A’Mo gives Jiu Chen the clothes she made for him.
Jiu Chen tries on the clothes. A’Mo says it’s beautiful, and then tells him she means his clothes, not him.
Jiu Chen asks Xiao Bai if he looks good.
A’Mo tells Jiu Chen about her plan to raise chickens and sell chicken eggs for money. A’Mo’s excitement makes Jiu Chen smile until he remembers his conversation with Qing Yao. Can he watch A’Mo suffer and not intervene in her trial?
Madam Guan tells A’Mo that Xu Hai and his underling have been unfrozen, and surprisingly, the men are alive after being encased in ice for so long.
A vendor tries to sell a hairpin to A’Mo. Jiu Chen asks why A’Mo doesn’t buy it when she likes it. A’Mo says she would rather buy things that can be eaten such as chicken eggs, chicken legs and chicken breasts.
Hearing A’Mo talk about her birthday startles Jiu Chen because he knows she isn’t fated to live past this date. A’Mo tells Jiu Chen to cook longevity noodles instead of buying a gift for her because she wants to save money to buy chickens.
A’Mo pleads with Xiao Bai to come out of the chicken coop she made, but Xiao Bai won’t budge. Jiu Chen only has to say Xiao Bai’s name once, and Xiao Bai leaves the chicken coop.
Jiu Chen persuades A’Mo to take Jing Xiu’s plant out of her room to let it bask in the sun.
A’Mo wants to become a physician because she can make money while helping people. Jiu Chen says if fate disrupts her plan, she mustn’t let her anger corrupt her, and no matter what, he will risk his life to protect her.
Xiao Bai destroys Jing Xiu’s plant.
Disturbed by what has happened lately, Madam Guan gets paintings of Earth Deity from a temple for herself and A’Mo. A’Mo doesn’t want to but has to accept it because of Madam Guan’s insistence.
Jiu Chen sees a painting of Earth Deity hanging on a wall in A’Mo’s house.
Immortal Peng, Earth Deity of where A’Mo lives, chats with Si Ming and suddenly gets chills all over his body.
Standing before the painting of Earth Deity, A’Mo bows with incense sticks and then tells Jiu Chen to do the same. Stunned, Jiu Chen looks at A’Mo, unable to say he outranks Earth Deities.
Jiu Chen’s bowing causes Immortal Peng to vomit blood. The painting of Earth Deity falls off the wall, so Jiu Chen tells A’Mo not to hang it up again.
Returning to A’Mo, Jiu Chen recalls his conversation with Qing Yao.
[Flashback: Qing Yao asks why Jiu Chen risks his life to help Ling Xi when trials happen to all immortals. In Qing Yao’s trial, she fell in love with a mortal, but Yun Feng accidentally killed him. Jiu Chen says his sacrifice is worth it if Ling Xi returns to the Heaven Realm with hope instead of heartbreak.]
A’Mo worries because she can’t find Jiu Chen. Jiu Chen says he stepped out for a while, and since she hasn’t eaten dinner, he will make noodles for her.
Jiu Chen struggles to make noodles for the first time and ends up with flour all over himself.
A’Mo eats the noodles while trying hard not to laugh at Jiu Chen.
A’Mo asks if people who cultivate like Jiu Chen can marry and need to eat. Jiu Chen says he eats, influenced by a friend who said life is boring without food.
Remembering Si Ming’s warning not to intervene, Jiu Chen worries if Ling Xi can pass the hardships in her trial.
A’Mo watches Jiu Chen wash the dishes. Jiu Chen asks her why she hasn’t gone to bed.
The next morning, A’Mo sees Jiu Chen waiting for her. Jiu Chen says he wants to take her to work.
Arriving at Physician Sun’s pharmacy, Jiu Chen and A’Mo say goodbye to each other.
A’Mo continues to look even after Jiu Chen walks away. Teasing A’Mo, Madam Guan tells her to ask for time off if she prefers to be with Jiu Chen instead of working.
Jiu Chen sees a couple discussing a talisman they bought.
Jiu Chen tells Zhu Zizai to stop deceiving people by selling talismans. Since Jiu Chen is busy, he gives Zhu Zizai a letter, introducing him to another teacher, Master Qingsong at Mount Ziyan. Zhu Zizai asks for Jiu Chen’s name so that he can look for him later.
A’Mo listens as Physician Sun and Madam Guan discuss what has happened to Xu Hai. Government officials couldn’t break the ice even though the weather is extremely hot. As a result, people suspect the gods are punishing Xu Hai for his sins.
Madam Guan asks A’Mo if she saw what happened to Xu Hai. A’Mo says she doesn’t know anything.
Looking at Xu Hai and his underling encased in ice, A’Mo is horrified.
Jiu Chen asks A’Mo if something is wrong, but A’Mo keeps her thoughts to herself.
Physician Sun prescribes medicine for a patient with a cold. However, the patient asks if his illness is caused by a demon.
Madam Guan says the elites in town invited a Taoist priest to perform an exorcism to force demons to reveal themselves. Furthermore, Madam Guan gives A’Mo a bottle of wine that supposedly wards off demons.
Seeing talismans everywhere in town, A’Mo rips off as many as she can.
A’Mo secretly burns the talismans. Jiu Chen touches the wine that wards off demons and a talisman. Immediately, A’Mo forces him to wash his hands.
A’Mo prescribes medicine for a patient. She explains the herbs in the medicine to Physician Sun, who praises her. Madam Guan says A’Mo works hard, unlike Physician Sun’s other assistant.
Madam Guan asks A’Mo why she bought men’s fabrics, but A’Mo, feeling embarrassed, doesn’t answer her.
Relying on the Fire Essense to prolong his life, Jiu Chen knows he can’t use his power anymore, at least until Ling Xi passes her hardships.
A’Mo arrives home, so Jiu Chen asks what is in her basket. A’Mo doesn’t tell him she bought fabrics to make his clothes.
As A’Mo sews clothes for Jiu Chen, she remembers using her hands to measure his body.
Jiu Chen asks A’Mo what she has been doing in her room lately to cause her to go to bed late at night. A’Mo says it’s nothing.
Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu buy breakfast for A’Mo and offer to take her to work, but A’Mo declines their offer.
In A’Mo’s room, Jiu Chen finds the clothes she is making for him and avoids the plant Jing Xiu left for A’Mo.
Xu Hai, a thug, seeks treatment for his wounds at Physician Sun’s pharmacy, and upon seeing A’Mo, he teases her inappropriately. Physician Sun gives Xu Hai medicine and tells him to go away.
After work, Madam Guan gives A’Mo a package of herbs to soothe her nerves after the incident with Xu Hai. A’Mo says she isn’t afraid.
A’Mo buys mooncakes. Meanwhile, Xu Hai and his underlings plan to kidnap and sell A’Mo for money.
Bao Suozhu calls A’Mo’s name, but A’Mo is too far away to hear him.
Xu Hai and his underlings kidnap A’Mo.
Bao Suozhu finds A’Mo’s package of herbs and mooncakes, which she dropped while being kidnapped.
After talking with Bao Suozhu, Zhu Zizai guesses something must have happened to A’Mo and alerts Jiu Chen. Jiu Chen disappears in a flash to look for her.
Xu Hai can’t wait to sell A’Mo to a brothel, betting he can get a lot of money because she is beautiful. A’Mo screams for help.
Filled with rage, Jiu Chen freezes Xu Hai and his underling, encasing them in ice. A’Mo sees what Jiu Chen is capable of and faints in shock.
Jiu Chen carries A’Mo home, remembering Si Ming’s warning not to harm mortals or change their fates.
A’Mo asks Jiu Chen if he is human. Jiu Chen says he has never harmed her and apologizes for not taking better care of her. It’s Mid-Autumn Festival and he didn’t have time to prepare a gift, so Jiu Chen wishes her to be safe and happy. Then to her surprise, he kisses her.
Jiu Chen leaves A’Mo’s room, and A’Mo goes to sleep.
Jiu Chen feels unwell because he used his power to freeze two mortals.
Arriving at Peach Forest, Jiu Chen sees Qing Yao kicking Yun Feng out of her house.
Jiu Chen needs to talk to Qing Yao.
Qing Yao gives Jiu Chen medicine, but the medicine might not help because he doesn’t have a heart. Qing Yao says the counter-effect of Jiu Chen using his power against mortals can extinguish the Fire Essence. Jiu Chen tells Qing Yao to visit Ling Xi, but Qing Yao can’t bear to see Ling Xi suffer and not being able to help her.
Jiu Chen asks Yun Feng about the Mountain Spirit Tribe. Yun Feng says spies have infiltrated but have low ranks, so it takes them time to send messages.
Jiu Chen attacks Taowu Beast, driving it into the woods. He unfreezes Zhu Zizai.
Without the Nuwa Stone, Jiu Chen’s power has weakened, allowing Taowu Beast to escape. Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu praise Jiu Chen for handling Taowu Beast. Jiu Chen collapses, shocking them.
There are many injured people in Physician Sun’s pharmacy. A’Mo calls Jing Xiu to help her get supplies, but he has disappeared.
Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu take Jiu Chen to Physician Sun’s pharmacy.
After three days, Jiu Chen wakes up. A’Mo chastises Jiu Chen for risking his life to fight Taowu Beast.
Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu want to visit Jiu Chen, so A’Mo takes them to see him.
Zhu Zizai kneels and begs to become Jiu Chen’s disciple, refusing to stand up until Jiu Chen agrees. A’Mo thinks Zhu Zizai saved Jiu Chen, so she tells Jiu Chen to agree. Jiu Chen couldn’t say no to A’Mo.
Jiu Chen is annoyed he has a disciple like Zhu Zizai. A’Mo doesn’t know why Jiu Chen dislikes Zhu Zizai.
Jiu Chen must return to the Heaven Realm to let the Heavenly Emperor know about Taowu Beast. Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu greet Jiu Chen, but Jiu Chen doesn’t notice them.
The Heavenly Emperor assigns Kai Yang and Han Zhang to investigate if Taowu Beast’s escape from its seal is related to the Demon King’s awakening. The Heavenly Emperor and Thunder Lord want to meet Jiu Chen’s disciple. Jiu Chen says his disciple is ordinary, but the Heavenly Emperor and Thunder Lord find that hard to believe.
A’Mo discovers a letter from Jing Xiu, saying he needs to return to his family to deal with an emergency. Happy to find his opponent gone, Jiu Chen tells A’Mo not to worry since her relationship with Jing Xiu is likely ill-fated.
Jiu Chen and A’Mo go buy food together.
Jiu Chen’s spirit leaves his body to return to the Heaven Realm.
According to Yun Feng, Ling Yue said she has imprisoned Jing Xiu. Jiu Chen needs Yun Feng to look into this matter again because Jing Xiu isn’t in prison but instead was staying with A’Mo.
A’Mo finds Jiu Chen sitting in his room, unmoving and not responding to her.
From what Jiu Chen heard from A’Mo, Jing Xiu was severely injured when he met A’Mo. Yun Feng is afraid the relationship between the Heaven Tribe and Mountain Spirit Tribe will become more strained if he investigates Jing Xiu, so Jiu Chen decides to let Han Zhang secretly handle this.
Jiu Chen’s spirit returns to his body, and he tells A’Mo he was sleeping while sitting. A’Mo says she wanted to check on him before going to work. Jiu Chen coughs and pretends to be sick, so A’Mo decides to stay home to take care of him.
A’Mo washes Jiu Chen’s clothes and brews medicine for him. She sees a rip in his clothes.
A’Mo wants to make an outfit for Jiu Chen, but she can’t find the tape measure. Jiu Chen remembers Yun Feng’s advice to be shameless when wooing A’Mo, so he tells her to measure his body with her hands. Flustered, A’Mo follows his suggestion, but she forgets the measurements. Jiu Chen tells her to do it again.
Jiu Chen stops meditating to go meet Yun Feng, who has come to the Mortal Realm.
Jing Xiu says Jiu Chen has many enemies and puts A’Mo in danger by staying with her. Jiu Chen says Jing Xiu also has many enemies.
Medicine King has convinced the Heavenly Emperor to issue a marriage edict for Yu Li and Yun Feng. Yun Feng is in love with Qing Yao, so he begs Jiu Chen to return to the Heaven Realm to help him stop the marriage. Jiu Chen refuses because he can’t leave A’Mo alone with Jing Xiu.
Telling Jing Xiu to go buy his writing supplies, A’Mo goes to Physician Sun’s pharmacy.
A’Mo asks Physician Sun for a month’s wage in advance.
A’Mo uses the money to prepare a farewell feast for Jiu Chen and Jing Xiu. She tells Jiu Chen to go to the Capital to take the national examination. As for Jing Xiu, his health has recovered, so he should go back to his family.
Jing Xiu asks Jiu Chen if A’Mo wants them to leave, so Jiu Chen says it’s Jing Xiu who should leave.
Jiu Chen vents his frustration on Yun Feng and Si Ming, berating them for not cultivating diligently. Yun Feng gives Jiu Chen advice on how to win A’Mo’s heart: be persistent, be persuasive, and lastly, be shameless.
Madam Guan tells A’Mo that Jing Xiu is working nearby.
A’Mo doesn’t understand why Jing Xiu has to earn money by writing letters for people when he said he is wealthy. Jing Xiu says he can’t leave because he still has to take care of some matters.
A’Mo hopes Jiu Chen won’t shamelessly refuse to leave like Jing Xiu, but she sees him waiting outside her house.
Jiu Chen asks A’Mo to marry him. However, A’Mo tells Jiu Chen to go back to his family and marry someone else.
Jiu Chen conjures up a storm and endures it.
A’Mo allows Jiu Chen to go into the house.
A’Mo helps Jiu Chen dry his hair. Jiu Chen holds A’Mo’s hand and then implores her to let him stay.
A’Mo returns to her room, feeling conflicted. Jiu Chen watches as the light goes out in A’Mo’s room.
The next morning, A’Mo tells Jiu Chen to leave. Jiu Chen pretends to be sick so that A’Mo would let him stay, but he can’t fool her.
A’Mo sees a vendor selling mooncakes. The vendor says Mid-Autumn Festival is in a few days.
A’Mo doesn’t accept mooncakes bought by Jing Xiu, telling him to go see his family during Mid-Autumn Festival. Jing Xiu says he doesn’t have any family.
Zhu Zizai pays respect to Jing Xiu and begs Jing Xiu to be his teacher. Jing Xiu freezes Zhu Zizai to stop him from causing a commotion.
A’Mo remembers Zhu Zizai and Bao Suozhu had tried to capture Xiao Bai.
Taowu Beast appears, injuring and killing people. Jing Xiu yells at everyone to hide and pulls A’Mo into Physician Sun’s pharmacy.
