On the plane, they also encounter another couple, MaLi and Hao Qiao who are also going to Guam to get engaged. Upon their arrival, Xiang Qin, MaLi, and Hao Qiao almost got lost if it wasn’t for Zhi Shu who knew how to speak English. Mali immediately fell for Zhi Shu and continues bothering Zhi Shu. She even rented the room next to their’s and jokes about exchanging husbands with Xiang Qin, causing Xiang Qin to not have good feelings towards her. She assumes that Zhi Shu is having a good time with MaLi and also returns her feelings for him. Therefore, she brags MaLi’s husband to stop his “flirting wife” from stealing her husband. But he hesitates because he believes that her getting married to him is enough and he couldn’t ask for more. When Zhi Shu and Xiang Qin were finally left alone, Xiang Qin tells Zhi Shu that the last night of the honeymoon will be a night for only them since the other couple will be busy with rehearsal for their wedding and MaLi will not be able to tag along. For the occasion, Xiang Qin tries to look her best, but on that night during their dinner, Ah Qiao came running toward their table and insists that Zhi Shu takes a look at MaLi since her stomach hurts and he is studying medicine. Xiang Qin tries to persuade him to stay, but he refuses. MaLi’s fake act causes Zhi Shu to take care of her and leads an argument between Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu. Zhi Shu was going do a quick check-up by touching Mary’s tummy, but Xiang Qin becomes jealous, and loudly screams for Zhi Shu to not touch other women, causing Zhi Shu to reprimands her by saying that she is married a future doctor; and if she is to get jealous easily, then maybe they are not suited for each other. He then orders her to go to the pharmacy downstairs to get some medicine and tried to soften the situation by stating that they could have dinner together later, but Xiang Qin left without replying. Worried about Xiang Qin’s safety, Hao Qiao went after Xiang Qin. However, as clumsy as she may be, she got lost. When Hao Qiao left, Mary tries to seduce Zhi Shu, but Zhi Shu faithfully and cruelly rejects her. Hao Qiao comes back to find out that she had put on an act, he reprimands Mary’s naïve personality, not allowing her to look at other men, and expressing that Mary is his. Towards his new manliness, Mary becomes attracted. Zhi Shu becomes agitated when Hao Qiao returns saying he lost track of Xiang Qin but he remains calm by asking for his parents and brother for help; which shocked them that he knew they followed Xiang Qin and him during their honeymoon. As Xiang Qin was wandering around the streets, she assumed that a scary-looking man tries to hit on her and thought that he was going to sell her away. Her heart became filled with scary thoughts, and was even more afraid of never being able to see Zhi Shu again. But in fact he was a police officer who mistook her as an elementary student. During this time, Zhi Shu comes out to save her, who was at a complete lost and miserable because she didn’t understand anything and thought that they thought that she did something bad. After this unfortunate night, Xiang Qin comes out in the balcony, later followed by Zhi Shu…and well, some sweet love scenes emerge.
