In episode 19 of Provocateur, Cyrus Ling (Jonathan Cheung) comes to rescue Amber Zou (Roxanne Tong) just in time. Although injured, Cyrus finally admits Amber is the most important person to him.
Amber: You’re heavily injured, you really don’t need to go to the hospital?
Cyrus: When I get to the hospital, I won’t be able to explain how I was injured. Ringo already didn’t like the clip of me saving Mani last time. I don’t want to argue with him again over these things.
Amber: You shouldn’t have came. Why did you come?
Cyrus: If I didn’t come, would you have been able to escape?!? Who knows what could’ve happened?
Amber: Sorry, I was too action-driven.
Cyrus: Why did you suddenly go to find him?
Amber: I was told that the watch was your dad’s and left to you after he died. I only wanted to find out if your dad was killed.
Cyrus: You are brainless, but why are you so action-driven? You really think you are a female spy?
Amber: Yes, I am brainless and action-driven. But who am I doing it for?
Cyrus: Actually, this incident is not as simple as you think. The person who resulted in my father’s death is not him. It’s me… Duncan died because of me. My father died because of me. My father’s suicide was an exchange for my life. The real person who should die is me. I don’t understand why I’m still alive. I should be dead, why am I still here?
Amber: Don’t be like that Cyrus. Your father wanted you to live life well. You have already done that.
Cyrus: I did it? I lived well? After my father’s death, I went around aimlessly for three years. It wasn’t until after I encountered Ringo that I started to live a new life. I sought help from a psychologist, took medicine for depression, stopped drinking alcohol, and worked out everyday to train my body. Look at me, I seem very healthy, but actually, what is the difference between me and a walking corpse? But if I don’t do this, I cannot think of any other ways to repay my father.
Amber: You are not repaying your father. You are punishing yourself.
Cyrus: My only family member died for me. If I don’t punish myself, who can I punish? I wasn’t a filial son… why?
Amber: Don’t be like this Cyrus. You can tell me anything in the future. You are not alone. You can share anything with me. I will forever be by your side.
Cyrus: You will be by my side forever? But you are brainless and action-driven, so I will have to take care of you for life?
Amber: Didn’t I say? I was brainless and action-driven because of you. Why must you keep saying that?
Cyrus: You said before you would give me three months of time. I want to tell you now, at this moment, you are the most important person to me. I will protect you forever. There is no need to wait three months.
