Tables have Turned
Yu Tu and Qiao Jing Jing are on their way back to Shanghai with Qiao Jing Jing looking gloomy on a phone call.
It’s her parents asking about the young man they saw earlier.
Hahaha look at Yu Tu taking revenge XD
As Qiao Jing Jing clarifies and tries to diffuse the situation, Yu Tu relishes the fact that she’s suffering just as much as he did when she turned the tables on him before.
Qiao Jing Jing continues to explain but moments later, her mother hangs up on her.
She knows that her mother is NOT happy. (It’s as if she was taking advantage of someone’s feelings.)
Qiao Jing Jing complains to Yu Tu, saying that her parents are complaining that she’s taking advantage of other party’s feelings.
And that she should treat her “boyfriend” better.
But what a coincidence, Yu Tu’s parents said the. exact. same thing.
ahahahaha love how Yu Tu got back at Qiao Jing just the same way
Qiao Jing Jing wonders how they ended up this way. Yu Tu explains that it was HER who started this.
And he learned the best from his girlfriend.
Qiao Jing Jing now knows that it’s not that easy to tease her boyfriend. Moments later, a message shows up on Yu Tu’s phone.
And Qiao Jing Jing helps him answer it.
It’s from Yu Tu’s former roommate, Zhai Liang. Who explains that he was dragged to a potential marriage interview. However, this time, the girl isn’t bad.
So he wants to pursue her and break free from his single-dog status as soon as possible.
But it’s just too bad because Yu Tu beat him to it first.
Getting Roasted by Zhai Liang
Yu Tu tells Qiao Jing Jing not to scare the poor fella but too late. Qiao Jing Jing replies that Yu Tu has beat him to it.
Then wonders why Zhai Liang is taking awhile to respond.
It turns out he was wiping water off of his phone. (So was he sipping on some water or something and then spat it all out in surprise????)
Before initiating a video call.
He just HAS to see Qiao Jing Jing face to face. After Qiao Jing Jing answers the call, Zhai Liang explains that he just dropped his phone in water.
So he had to wipe it down for a bit. But what’s he’s really curious about is if Yu Tu looks like he’s on cloud nine.
But Yu Tu puts on his poker face so it doesn’t look like it. Anyways Zhai Liang starts to roast Yu Tu for not noticing Qiao Jing Jing’s posters on ads and whatnot.
And wonders if they were really former classmates.
Yu Tu is like don’t make me look bad in front of my girlfriend… we just got together you know!!!
As Zhai Liang continues to roast Yu Tu, Yu Tu counters and explains himself.
Spinning the tale in his favor, while Zhai Liang wonders out loud how shameless he can be.
Yu Tu murmurs that survival is more important (so true!).
Before ending the call, Zhai Liang tells Qiao Jing Jing to add him on wechat and they discuss more stories about Yu Tu offline.
She tells him that she’ll forward the contact over using Yu Tu’s phone.
And that means a LOT.
The two continue onwards towards Shanghai and arrive in the evening.
Reading a letter out loud
Qiao Jing Jing wonders why they are on the first floor and Yu Tu leads her to the mailboxes. Punches the password in and extracts a letter.
While the latter wonders if Yu Tu is way too familiar with her passwords.
This letter was written with a lot of deep feelings and when Yu Tu originally wrote it, he wasn’t sure if he would be able to read it out loud to Qiao Jing Jing in person.
Yu Tu wonders if she wants to listen.
After listening to him read the letter to her, Qiao Jing Jing admits that she’s gotten quite sleepy.
And that he should return soon before the last subway train stops running.
However, Yu Tu surprises her that he will stay overnight.
Qiao Jing Jing gets up from lying down and faces Yu Tu who admits that from now on, he will take the initiative.
But because he doesn’t have a lot of experience, he wants her to let him know if he oversteps his bounds.
Like staying overnight even though he will be sleeping on the couch.
Qiao Jing Jing considers it a bit while Yu Tu explains that he wants to be able to send her off to the airport. But if he returns home tonight, he will need to wake up at 4am to send her off.
So Qiao Jing Jing agrees to let him stay overnight. She doesn’t think he’s overstepping his bounds.
Communication is SUPER important in a relationship. I’m so glad Yu Tu is being more open with Qiao Jing Jing now!!!!
Sister Ling and Xiao Zhu’s Reactions
The next morning, Xiao Zhu cheerfully heads over to Qiao Jing Jing’s place.
And rings the doorbell.
However, she is completely stunned to see Yu Tu at the door.
She wonders if Yu Tu came over super early this morning and is even more stunned when he answers that he stayed over.
And that Qiao Jing Jing is still sleeping.
Xiao Zhu’s mind works the gears around and starts to head off in a weird direction…
But she enters Qiao Jing Jing’s home anyways and brings in the breakfast she bought. Not knowing that Yu Tu also bought breakfast.
Qiao Jing Jing appears just as Yu Tu brings out what he bought for her. And Xiao Zhu starts to feel like a third wheel.
It seems like she doesn’t even need to be here….
hahahaha doting boyfriend is attempting to take over your job Xiao Zhu!!!!
As she watches Yu Tu wipe Qiao Jing Jing’s lips with a napkin and dote on her.
Later on, Sister Ling asks for Xiao Zhu’s whereabouts. It’s almost time for Qiao Jing Jing’s flight.
And she advises Xiao Zhu to inform driver Wang to go to the correct location.
However, Xiao Zhu tells Sister Ling that the driver today is NOT Mr. Wang….
Once the car pulls over, Sister Ling wonders who the driver is until Yu Tu steps out.
She’s briefly stunned and Xiao Zhu comments that she looks like how she did earlier this morning.
While Qiao Jing Jing gets out of the car as well and stands next to Yu Tu.
It takes Sister Ling a few seconds to compute what’s going on.
Then she composes herself and comments that she will need to have the PR team ready.
And advises Yu Tu to wear a mask alongside Qiao Jing Jing at ALL times.
Long Distance Relationship Begins
The two share a sweet farewell as Sister Ling almost gags from the sweetness.
Yu Tu also comments that he worried too much in the past because it turns out that Qiao Jing Jing goes on more business trips than him.
On day 1 of their long distance relationship, Qiao Jing Jing sends over a cute text.
She will be AI JingJing, his mobile cell phone girlfriend.
On day 3, Yu Tu takes a picture of what he’s eating for breakfast and sends it over to Qiao Jing Jing.
Then after he heads into work early, Qiao Jing Jing and him text each other for a bit before he starts work.
During lunch, Yu Tu’s colleague wonders why he’s taking photos of his food. And believes Yu Tu is using an online dating app with an AI female bot.
He thinks it’s very humanlike.
On the other end, Xiao Zhu just watches as Qiao Jing Jing giggles to herself through text messages.
On day 6, Sister Ling tells Qiao Jing Jing that she expressed interest in having the next event in Shanghai (so Qiao Jing Jing can return to Shanghai earlier).
And Qiao Jing Jing thanks her manager.
She later video chats with Yu Tu while trying to memorize her script.
But gets distracted with Yu Tu’s comments.
About marriage gifts and future generations.
I love how basically ALL the close friends in Yu Tu and Qiao Jing Jing’s inner circle found out about their relationship so quickly.
Zhai Liang is such a great friend. XD You always need someone to roast you so you stay humble…
Xiao Zhu and Sister Ling’s reactions were priceless too. But Sister Ling takes the cake as she reacted so quickly. And was like okay, got it. I’ll prepare.
Yu Tu is learning to tease Qiao Jing Jing too hahahaha. Qiao Jing Jing has met her match.
I also really LOVE how Yu Tu keeps communication channels open with Qiao Jing Jing.
He knows he is not experienced at relationships but freely admits that.
And wants what’s best for Qiao Jing Jing and him.
