Episode 6 RECAP
Our troublesome puppy, Ying Dong, is tortured in prison by the guards. (I actually don’t feel bad for him. He deserves it!) Punched in the face and slammed against the bars, he snaps ineffectually, “How dare you hit my face! If my big brother learns of this, he’s going to kill you!” This specific guard doesn’t care for their “cheap” money and continues to batter Ying Dong. Jin Xiu waits outside the entrance and even though Zuo Zhen’s car pauses nearby, he orders Shi Hao to drive on, remembering her words the other night when he forced himself on her and was denied. Dude. So wrong.
After hearing that Mr. Xiang is away on a business trip, Jin Xiu has no choice but seeks help from the one man she promised not to ask for help from. I don’t know how she does it, maybe there are fire wheels attached to her heels, but she’s faster than Zuo Zhen’s car! He orders Shi Hao to keep driving straight even though she’s right in the middle of the lane like a lunatic with her arms outstretched. He screams “Halt!” seconds before the bumper crashes her fragile knees.
Zuo Zhen hops out of the car and grabs her collar, “Do you not want to live anymore?!”, but that somehow triggers pain in her knee (for sitting outside the police department all night) and she winces. Man, I think he needs to get his brain checked out too. She can walk but of course, he swoops down and picks her up bridal-style and carries her to his mansion and onto presumably his bed. He sternly repeats, “Sit there. Don’t move.”
He returns with a medical kit and starts dabbing medicine onto her wound while she flinches from the pain. “You should take better care of yourself. Don’t always get hurt and show up injured in front of people because that would only bring them trouble.”
Without meeting her eyes, he reminds her of her own words, “You said you would never step foot inside this house, so what force on earth brought you here?” She calls him petty, those words were said out of haste. He’s a man so why is he measuring every tiny bit of details with a girl. He stops pursuing that topic. “Say, what is it?”
Her tone softens, “Can you please save Ying Shao…” which is when his eyes flit up to her face and his hand intently dabs harder into the wound, rendering a scream out of her. “You sought me out for this reason?” In a long-winded fashion, she explains how she saw Ying Shao captured and taken to the police department and yet the guards denied it. “Hurry and save him. Whether he’s alive or dead, no one knows…Isn’t he your friend, why aren’t you a bit concerned?” He glares at her, “Why is it related to you? Why are you in such urgency?” Jin Xiu: “Because he’s also my friend. Of course, I have to save him.” He wraps bandage around her knee while questioning her position in the matter. Why should almighty him agree to help a country girl like her? What could she possibly offer in return? “I can do anything! I can do it!… Unless it involves myself…” Dirty thoughts, Miss Virgin?
