‘ I don't believe in fairytales, in reality the rich prince charming does not fall in love with the pauper...but why is Zhou Leicheng pulling me towards his mother? ' Lianmin wonders as she glances at Leicheng's hand which held her tightly, then his face which wore no expression and then at his Mom who was waiting patiently for them with a smile on her face as she stood in front of the Zhou Villa.
“ Z... Zhou Leicheng w..why a..are y...you..." Lianmin stutters but pauses when Leicheng calls out his mom.
“ Zhou Yao...” Zhou Leicheng calls his mom by her name which surprises Lianmin.
“ I'm home ” Leicheng says to his mother, a shadow of a smile touching his face.
Zhou Yao cups Leicheng's face with her palm, her eyes glittering with so much love as she stares at him like he would disappear in an instance.
“ Welcome home my child ” Zhou Yao's smile becomes brighter.
Lianmin stares at the both of them unable to understand why she was there.
“ Is she...? ” Zhou Yao asks as she turns to look at Lianmin.
“ Uhh?...” Lianmin wonders what Zhou Yao is talking about.
‘ Am I...what? ’ Lianmin wonders.
“ Oh... I almost forgot Zhou Yao meet Jiang Lianmin...my fiancée ” Zhou Leicheng says and Lianmin goes blank.

When the news gets to Leicheng's Mom who has been disturbing Leicheng about his love life, his secretary advises him to take advantage of the situation. Leicheng takes his advice and introduces Lianmin to his mom as his fiancee.
