Episode 01 Part 1 Summary:

Zhi Hao, because of his friend’s last wishes, takes in the child. This little boy changes Zhi Hao’s life forever.

Xi Yan: I still have a card up my sleeve, try to delay it as long as possible.
Guests: Congratulations Director Wang.

Ming Wei: It’s not like you don’t know her temper.
Zhi Hao’s father comes and asks what is going on with the wedding. Why is Xi Yan not here yet?
Ming Wei: Everything will be fine, don’t worry.
Zhi Hao’s father: Letting the guests wait is very impolite.

Ming Wei: She’s still not ready, we have to wait some more.
The wedding music begins to play, Ming Wei takes the com and tells them to stop.

Hao Yun rides her bike in a rush.
Store Manager: Hao Yun! Where are you off to?
Hao Yun: I’m going to attend a wedding! I’ll see you later!
Store Manager: Ok! I wish you Hao Yun (good luck in Chinese).

Usher: Miss, what are you doing here?
Hao Yun: I’m here to play the piano. Oh, I’m so late!

Hao Yun: Hey, why are they all leaving?
Hao Yun tries get her paycheck from the supervisor.
Hao Yun: Give me my money please! I turned down a lot of other jobs to come here! Now I’m here. My mom always told me not to do business for no profit!
Supervisor: Ok, ok, I can compensate your travel fare, but you didn’t even play the piano. Are you a theif?
Hao Yun: It’s not my fault the wedding didn’t work out! Please give me my money.

Ming Wei: This is your piano playing money. Is it enough?
Hao Yun: Why are you giving me money? Are you giving this to me? Is it mine?
Ming Wei: You don’t believe me?
Hao Yun: It’s not that. I’m a person who always meets with bad luck, when something good happens I’m always skeptical.
Ming Wei: I just don’t want anybody attending my little brother’s wedding to have any loss.
Hao Yun: Thank you so much. There are indeed good people left in this world!

Xi Yan: I’m sorry Zhi Hao, I have some urgent matters to attend to. I need to leave. I’ll be back. You have to wait for me.
Zhi Hao talks to Xi Yan about what happened. How could she do such a thing with so many guests present. Does she love her work that much? Xi Yan asks if all she has to do is apologize to them.
Zhi Hao: I told them you were sick so you couldn’t come. You better go home and rest. I’m setting our next wedding date three months from now.
Xi Yan: How can you decide the date by yourself? Why didn’t you discuss it with me?

Zhi Hao: I’m asking if you wanted to go in and see Zhou Ming?
Xi Yan: Why? Why must I see him before I leave?
Zhi Hao: You are asking why?
Xi Yan: That’s right, I’m asking because I don’t know.

Xi Yan: After we are married, I’ll see him everyday.
Zhi Hao: What you’re saying is that you don’t want to meet him?
Xi Yan: This is what you are saying, It didn’t come from my mouth. And yes, about Zhou Ming, there was something I wanted to talk to you about. After we are married, can we let him…
Zhi Hao: Xi Yan!
Xi Yan: That’s right, I don’t want to see him.

Xi Yan: I don’t want to suffer like this. I won’t lie to you. I am not happy to have to live with Zhou Ming.
Zhi Hao: You say unhappy? Didn’t you say before you were happy to let Zhou Ming be your son? Now you are saying you are not happy?
Xi Yan: Yes, I said that before, but now the circumstances are different. I just want to live alone with you for awhile.

Xi Yan: Anyways, about Zhou Ming, I’ve already said my mind. The wedding is about both of us, I hope you can think from my perspective for once. You are tired, go in and rest first. I’ll come by some other day to see Zhou Ming.

Hao Yun and Xiao Mei are about to sign a contract for an apartment. Hao Yun is a little doubtful of this particular place. Hao Yun tells Xiao Mei that she has a weird premonition about today. She got money, more money than she would have gotten, and she didn’t even play the piano. The manager shows them around. The apartment is both clean and nice looking, but Hao Yun asks the manager why the owner wants to sell it so cheaply. The manager tells them that the owner was sent to the states and was anxious to rent it out. Xiao Mei asks the manager to forgive Hao Yun for being nosy. Hao Yun always gets bad luck. The manager is fine with it, he tells them people in their profession have to be upstanding an honest.

Hao Yun and Xiao Mei are ecstatic that they have finally moved out of their homes. Hao Yun hasn’t told her own parents yet though.
Hao Yun: I should have told them a long time ago, but my dad isn’t the average father. Xiao Mei, you won’t understand. Father! Just promise to let me live here!

Hao Yun: I’m moving out. Can I?
Hao Yun: Dad, I want to move out. I want to be independent!

Hao Yun: Brother!

Zhi Hao’s father arrives in a black car. His friend and doctor advises him to go to the hospital and check on his body. He thinks back at his memories of his wife and son, Zhi Hao.
Doctor: Young miss! Be more careful!
Zhi Hao’s father: It’s alright. Let’s go.
Hao Yun: Hey, this isn’t just my fault. Eh! At least you should say a sorry.

Hao Yun’s father: How can you just leave the door open like this?
Hao Yun’s mother: If our son came back and the door was locked, then he wouldn’t be able to get in.
Hao Yun’s father: This is the last time.
Hao Yun’s mother: What do you mean?
Hao Yun’s father: How can we prepare this every year?
Hao Yun’s mother: I do this of my own will.
Hao Yun’s father: A son that left this world before before his parents.

Hao Yun’s mother: I will remember him.

Hao Yun’s mother: Even if it is just this one day of the year, I want to make him a good meal, why can’t you understand?
