JoAnne: Which is way less creepy than it sounds.
You bet your sweet bippy, he has!
I was hoping he'd spill the beans.
Until then I totally didn't realize Zhe Yan didn't know everything. Zhe Yan then asks Ye Hua about why he is always wearing black and gets to hear that story we already know: that he wears black so that both his enemies and his loved ones cannot see his wounds. He smiles so, so sweetly while he tells this story. Like he is very proud of being so smart about this.
Who cares, he's smiling!
I do, too. I like the clean face, I do...but I also liked the scruff and I miss it. Plus Mo Yuan is different than Ye Hua.
It seemed so reflexive, too! Poor Li Jing. You screwed up, buddy, and you are never going to get past that with her.
It seemed like brave talk, to me, but that she actually is still hurt. I don't think she's affected to the point that he could win her back, but I do think she mourns what they might have had.
Um, why would he want to be with her when he was a child? He isn't looking for a mom, kiddo.
Also, how does he know that only one person in the world would burn green? I mean come on, let's be real.
Yeah, let's not point that out too often, k?
I used to tell my daughter when she was little, whatever you do, don't be one of those boy-crazy girls. Now I laugh to think of it - but yes, I get how her dad feels. You don't want your child hurt, you don't want your child to look like a fool or do something regretful. And you do feel like it reflects on you, even when the child is grown enough to make decisions for themselves.
Such a little doll!
Mi Gu, you smart boy. Why is there no one for your cutie-pie self? Can't we find a sweet little shrub spirit for you or something?
It's next door to the Banana Bodega.
Seriously. It better be some pretty damn epic sex after all this effort, or I'm going to feel really sorry for her.
He's boring with dark hair.
We are saved by a cut to the Mushroom Market and everybody happily gossiping about that child that calls their ruler "mother" and being generally surprised Bai Qian is here and not Fengjiu (who did all the shopping and cooking in the last 300 years, it seems). All of a sudden, Ye Hua is back and I may have squeed a little, because this is my absolute favorite outfit on him.
He's just so damn sexy. How is it possible to be so sexy?
Little shopping family, so cute! I expected him to bust out with a critique of 'rabbit food'!
Sigh. How could you make a TREE SPIRIT work with fire? Stop being all lusty-eyed and go make some food!
CommentsI love everything about this set-up - everything. Bai Qian's discomfort (but signs of already being quite smitten with this young, handsome fellow who is so obviously into her), A-Li's sweetness, Ye Hua's slyness. He may have been bad at planning before, okay "bad" doesn't even describe what he was!, but now? This is excellent, through and through. His son gets to know his mother and he gets to find out why she does not remember him. And he is near her. Imagine how warm and fuzzy inside he must be feeling. He has found his Su Su! And he will get to marry her!!!!
I'm feeling his warm and fuzzy in my own heart!
