JoAnne: No way. They have to be together in the end, right?
Good, Fuling, you go fly a kite for the guy. I'll show my appreciation for him another way.
Because he's secretly always been a good guy, sigh. (But I do keep remembering that little grin when she was tied up in the courtyard.) Awww, Huanzheng is so proud of all the stuff he made. In his eagerness, he calls Jishu "shifu" and gets quite the earful for it. In the conversation that follows, Huanzheng learns of Jishu's true identity as Fuling's father. Through all of it, Jishu remains a dick deluxe.
Honestly, Huanzheng, he's not worth it.
Can this kid not get a break?
They can be a tiny little Scooby Gang of two. My heart is melting.
I'm so tired of these sad sad saaaaaaaaad people all the time.
And I want his purple dress. So pretty!
Dude, go away. I thought you were cute for a minute, but no.
Oh well, hey. That's useful, right? Why is he doing this? Just because he likes her musical ability? Her sort-of ability?
As I recall she doesn't outright forbid it, either.
Very. Very hot. Currently thinking about those lips. Need air.
Not. The ZITHER! Nooooooooo
Look at his tiny baby mouth trumper tantrum.
This dude is unhinged. (And I think the only reason the princess spoke up is because it could make her look good.)
I find it odd that the Regent would fly away with her like that, don't you?
It's an additional slap in his nephew's face.
Yep. This is what I thought would come next.
Who could possibly like Xue Lin?
I think I blacked out for a second. All that frustrated heat.
He is kind of pushy, though. But still.
Ewwwwwww. Suppressing his rage, Feng Tianyi snaps that Fuling is a person! Well, she broke his former wife's zither, the Regent says, no death is enough to pay for this. Plus, now that Feng Tianyi started fighting for her, he is really interested. As Regent moves around them like a predator, WKE keeps shielding Fuling behind his back. He is ready to die for this woman.
It's not true, it's not true, it's not true! She'll be yours, just wait!
Meanwhile, Bi Anhua watches Tingjun practice his martial arts in the courtyard of their humble abode. Just watching him makes her happy. However, she's still thinking all that crap stuff about not being worthy, destiny etc. Later, they're walking when she suddenly claims she hurt her foot. All so he would carry her on his back.
Do we really need either of them anymore?
CommentsConfession: I TOTALLY dig the Regent. He is insane. What a complex, evil, horrible, but very interesting character! He is so mean! How could he take away the one, the only thing Feng Tianyi really, truly liked?
His dislike completely baffles me. How could Tianyi's father have left this man in CHARGE?
I have no words for Fuling's foolishness. Okay, she heard something, but did she REALLY have to break Feng Tianyi's heart? She knows how he feels towards his uncle, how desperately he tries to win just an inch over this guy - and she abandons the Emperor like this?! In front of that guy?! It's almost unforgivable.
She must think she's saving him by doing it, though. Live to fight another day, maybe?
