Continuing with the flashback, the young Zhao Mosheng (Janice Wu) joined the school debate team, much to the dislike of the young Xu Ying (Maggie Chen). However, the rest of the debate team members all approved, knowing Mosheng possesses great photography skills, including the young He Yichen (Leo Luo). Xu Ying ordered Mosheng around: from bringing 40 lunchboxes to carrying crates of drinks, resulting in her to catch a cold. Yichen left some medicine on the table for Mosheng.
One day, the young Lin Shaomei (Xiong Yuting) went back to the dorm room crying. On the way back from work, she was robbed and all the money from that month’s salary was gone as well. Mosheng promised to pick her up from work. But, at the same time, she missed out on the debate team’s meetings. Yichen suggested to Mosheng that he can walk Shaomei back to the dorms since he worked nearby. But, Shaomei quit, seeing how inconvenient it was for Mosheng. Mosheng did not notify Yichen of this until he walked her back to the dorms after a rainy afternoon.
The night before the debate competition finals, Yichen’s roommate came back with some lamb skewers. His two roommates started to vomit and have stomach problems, but he was fine. Heading to the competition, Mosheng managed to ask Yichen to save a seat for her. On the bus ride, she accidentally pushed him to the window when the bus made a wide turn. When they got off the bus, Yichen’s stomach started to hurt. His cue cards also went missing. Xu Ying put the blame on Mosheng as she carried his bag from the bus to the building interior.
