Summer’s Desire Episode 11
Love really knows no bounds. For love, Luo Xi tries to commit suicide. For love, Ou Chen uses such despicable underhanded means to keep his bride. And for love, Xia Mo can give up everything.
Last episode, it was established that Ou Chen and Xia Mo are definitely not siblings! So thankfully, we don’t have to worry about issues of incest or stuffs. So far, we have resolved the following:1. Xiao Cheng is Xia Ge’s son. 2. Xiao Cheng is Xia Mo’s half-brother. 3. But then, Ou Chen is also Xia Ge’s son. 4. Therefore, Xiao Cheng is also Ou Chen’s half-brother.
This drama is just plain twisted. I really hope nobody snaps and goes crazy in the end. Well, Xia Mo might. Who knows?
Episode 11 Recap
Sheng Qiang finally succeeds in striking a fatal blow at Luo Xi’s well-built walls. The harsh reality sinks in. Now, he fully understands that Xia Mo is already somebody’s bride and he may lose her forever. Without saying a word, he walks off. And right on cue, Xia Ge gets a call from Xi Meng.
Moved by his Young Master’s genuine love for Xia Mo, Xi Meng finally gives in and confesses to Xia Ge that Ou Chen is his son. Of course, Xia Ge finds the revelation unbelievable as it is senseless. He gets riled up and warns Xi Meng not to make up some lies. But Xi Meng remains adamant, insisting that all of the news about Ou family were just fabricated lies. And he decided to spill the beans coz he knows Ou Chen wants his “Dad” in this momentous occasion.
Meanwhile, Xia Mo and the rest of the gang are on their way to the wedding, when “somebody” blocks their way. And that somebody is…. (drum roll) Luo Xi.
And straight away, Luo Xi says his piece, taking all the risks and wishing for some miracle. He knows too well that no matter how much he begs, Xia Mo won’t change her mind. No matter how hurt and miserable he might be, she won’t care. She won’t budge, not even a little. But despite this, he hoped.
Luo Xi: I came to ask you to marry me.
Xia Mo: What are you saying?
Luo Xi: I came before you marry Ou Chen… to ask you marry me.
Xia Mo: Are you crazy?
Luo Xi: Maybe, I was planning not to come, because I knew that e it would’ve been useless. But last night I have a dream. I dreamed that… I died. Right before I die, I wanted to finish the things I want to do. Xia Mo, do you know a long, long, long time ago I already proposed to you?
Xia Mo: What nonsense are you saying? How can you die?
Luo Xi: Why not? Because in this world, there is nothing for me to live on for.
Xia Mo: Are you threatening me?
Luo Xi: If you feel that way, then yes.
Xia Mo: But it’s useless because I love him.
And Xia Mo’s next words pierces through Luo Xi’s already broken heart. She spits that she indeed loved Ou Chen. Her feelings for him never wavered, never forgotten. Besides, she already warned Luo Xi before. Everybody else deserves to be loved, but not her. She ‘s got a heart of rigid stone and she will only hurt him more. Luo Xi refuses to believe such lies. He stood there, unyielding, firmly believing that Xia Mo loved him. It hurts to think that all those promises were lies.
Luo Xi’s tears falls silently. In a calm, dead voice he wonders if when he dies, Xia Mo will still marry Ou Chen. Now, it’s Xia Mo’s turn to get scared. Is he really going to die? Luo Xi flashes a mocking smile. He arrogantly assures Xia Mo that he won’t give up his life for her. The world is magnificent and beautiful, and she’s not worth dying for. He’ll definitely live well, patiently waiting for her regrets. So, she mustn’t expect that he’ll wish her happiness.
After Luo Xi went off, Xiao Cheng suggests that they tell Ou Chen to give her more time to think. With his sister’s reaction, he senses that something is wrong. But Xia Mo shoves the topic off and smiles as if nothing happened.
Undoubtedly, Ou Chen is the happiest of all grooms. He is actually smiling now. Not the mocking, arrogant, forced smile but the real one. After a few more hours, she’ll be his wife. Finally, she’ll be with him forever. His vibrant mien is apparent for everyone to see. He gladly welcomes every best wishes and congratulations. I really think he deserves to be happy! Team Ou Chen all the way!
While Ou Chen is exceedingly buoyant, Luo Xi is terribly suffering from hopelessness. He remembers every happy times, every promises made, every dreams built.
Like an excited little boy, Ou Chen runs towards his bride and carries her all the way through the long red carpet. But Xia Mo just can’t get Luo Xi’s words out of her system, as she appears troubled and disturbed. Ou Chen sees her puzzled reaction and assumes that she’s nervous like him. And so he shares that he’s actually tensed. He’s afraid that this is all just a dream. Xia Mo soothes his worries and consoles that even if it were a dream, she’ll stay by his side.
Luo Xi arrives at the shooting site and it seems he’ll be filming a very dangerous scene (they’ll be working with bombs and explosives). Shen Qiang and other staffs continuously reminds him to be extra careful, but his mind is just wandering off to somewhere. To some wedding, maybe?
At the wedding, Xia Mo’s phone rings. Zhen En reads the caller’s name- Luo Xi. She just can’t let Xia Mo receive the call. Xia Mo can’t back out now. Xiao Cheng’s health is far more important. With a heavy heart, Zhen En rejects the call.
Ou Chen is much enthusiastic. If he could just fast-forward everything, he would. The ceremony is then momentarily interrupted by Xia Ge’s dramatic, slow-mo, shoes-first-then-face entrance. And when it was Xia Mo’s time to say her “I do”, the congregation fell silent. She seems so unsure and Ou Chen starts to feel perturbed. After a long agonizing minute, or two, Xia Mo finally drops the coveted two words. Ha! Team Ou Chen wins!
After a few more failed calls, Luo Xi finally concedes defeat. His mind resolved. And then… BOOM! It all happened so fast. Luo Xi actually stepped towards the explosives! The staff stood frozen looking at Luo Xi’s wounded and seemingly lifeless body. Shen Qiang’s cries echoes in the air.
Another picture perfect! The wedding ceremony is finally over.
Looking from afar, Xia Ge and Xi Meng discuss on what will happen next. Xi Meng asks Xia Ge when will he tell Ou Chen the truth. But Xia Ge casually replies that they just have to keep it a secret. He resolves that Ou Chen is too high classed to have a father like him. And besides, he was already used to being alone and he doesn’t know how to be in a family. Xi Meng can only stare at his retreating back. Xi Meng: “In the end, you could let it go easier than me”.
Wedding night. Okay, so this is awkward. Ou Chen waits inside the room. Xia Mo just finished her bath and tells Ou Chen to prepare . But he has other plans. They won’t be doing “it” tonight. He’ll be staying at the next room. Xia Mo is taken aback. Xia Mo: “You don’t have to do this”. But Ou Chen already made up his mind. Since tomorrow is Xiao Cheng’s operation, they both need rest. And for sure, they’ll have more chances in the future.
Alone in the room, Xia Mo weighs if her decisions were right. She looks at Xiao Cheng’s photo and is convinced that she made the right choice.
After hearing the news, Xia Ge anxiously rushes to the hospital. Luo Xi is still unconscious and Shen Qiang’s becoming more and more hysterical.
Luo Xi’s words keeps haunting Xia Mo, even in her dreams. She may not be the rigid stone that Luo Xi described after all. She constantly convinces herself that Luo Xi is just bluffing, nobody will die. Over and over she reminds herself that she is already Ou Chen’s wife and must not think of other people.
Day of surgery. Xiao Cheng is feeling confident and optimistic. He won’t die coz he’ll see Xia Mo and Ou Chen’s baby grow up. He then asks a favor from Ou Chen. He wants to know who the donor is and personally thank him for the kidney. But Ou Chen regretfully informs Xiao Cheng that the donor wants to remain anonymous. And maybe, it is the donor who needs to thank Xiao Cheng for giving him a “chance”.
On the way to the operating room, the group bumps into the furious Shen Qiang. And out of anger, she tries to slap Xia Mo. Thankfully, Ou Chen blocks the hit. And Shen Qiang’s rage intensifies. She promises that she’ll never let Xia Mo live a good life. Karma will surely come. Hearing Shen Qiang’s spiteful words, Ou Chen then vows to make her regret everything she said.
But Shen Qiang is ready for battle. Nothing can scare her, not even Young Master Ou Chen. She directs her attention to Ou Chen and insultingly spouts that he was only caught in Xia Mo’s manipulative grasps. She didn’t marry him for love. Someday, when someone wealthier and has higher status appears, she’ll definitely betray him. And by then, he’ll reap twice the pain that Luo Xi suffered today. This gets Xia Mo worried. What the hell happened to Luo Xi?
Shen Qiang is quite surprised. Xia Mo is actually worried for Luo Xi? That’s quite odd. And so she relays what happened. On the day she was married, Luo Xi got himself hurt during the filming. And it was all because of Xia Mo. He’s still unconscious and may not survive. He tried to call Xia Mo many times, but she never answered. If Xia Mo really had a heart, she must try to wake him up.
Knowing this, Xia Mo immediately prepares to leave, but Ou Chen stops her. With a determined look, Xia Mo brushes off his hand and goes to find Luo Xi.
Whether Shen Qiang acknowledges it or not, her last hope is Xia Mo. She’s hoping against hope that through Xia Mo, he’ll find the will to live again.
Xia Mo: How much do you hate me? Do you hate me this much that you have to use this kind of method to declare your victory? Do you really think you’ve won? I didn’t care about you, even if you die, how would it hurt me? Can you really cruelly send me to hell like this? Wake up! Your lying here, not even moving, don’t you think you’re acting really stupid?
Hearing Xia Mo’s cold words, Shen Qiang is enraged. Just then Jenny comes by and overhears everything. Jenny defends that Xia Mo is also suffering, she’s actually hurt. Shen Qiang is quite sickened, how can Xia Mo be in pain ? She doesn’t even shed a single tear!
But Xia Mo is oblivious to her surroundings. She’s too preoccupied to hear Shen Qiang’s tirades.
Xia Mo: I know you’re just using death to get back at me. But you’re really being stupid, because even if you die, it won’t scare me, you know?
Guilt-stricken, Zhen En blames herself for Luo Xi’s attempted suicide. She knows that Luo Xi kept on calling Xia Mo’s phone. But then she never bothered to tell Xia Mo. She believed that Ou Chen can only save Xiao Cheng. She thought that as long as Xiao Cheng is saved, everything is alright. But she ‘s wrong. Xia Mo married somebody she didn’t like and Luo Xi got in accident.
All the while, Xiao Cheng and Ou Chen overhears Zhen En’s emotional outburst.
Knowing her sister’s sacrifice, Xiao Cheng refuses the surgery. He’d rather die than suck Xia Mo’s happiness. Yes, he knows that her sister accepted the marriage coz she loves him very much, but nevertheless he won’t agree.
Xia Mo’s strength is drained. This is just too much! She breaks down and faints.
At the operation room, another soul is also torned.
Young Ou Chen: Where’s your family? Your family’s not here to accompany you? Besides that nurse there is no one. Didn’t you marry? Where’s your wife? There is still no one here. You are very immature to use this kind of method. Your last hope is also about to be shattered. Even if you try your hardest, it’s all wasted energy. Just give up everything. Accept your fate.
Ou Chen: No, I won’t give up.
Just then, a frantic Zhen En bangs the door. Xia Mo fainted! The surgery is canceled. And Ou Chen instantly rushes to Xia Mo’s room. He’s a bit angry at Xiao Cheng’s stubborn behaviour. But Xiao Cheng proves to be as hardheaded as her sister. Xiao Cheng: “I don’t want your help. I want sister’s happiness”.
Xiao Cheng walks towards Luo Xi’s room and apologizes. It’s all his fault. It was all just a deal. In exchange of a kidney, Xia Mo agreed to marry Ou Chen. And now, sister is also sick. He touches Luo Xi’s hand, as if giving him support. Xiao Cheng: “You must get better and take care of sister in the future”. And somehow Luo Xi fingers moved! Maybe, he’s not unconscious at all!
Outside the door, Zhen En and Shen Qiang listens to Xiao Cheng’s sentiments. Later that night, Shen Qiang sits beside the still unresponsive Luo Xi. Shen Qiang: “Luo Xi, if you never wake up, Xia Mo may not also recover”.
Ou Chen holds Xia Mo’s hands. Ou Chen: “No, I’m not wrong. I won’t regret. Xia Mo, as long as you wake up, I’ll do anything”. And just then Xia Mo awakens in tears. It’s as if she had been in the most horrendous nightmare. She calls out for her mother, begging her to save Xiao Cheng. He’s the only one she had left. And she’s scared to be alone.
Ou Chen lends his shoulders. He promises that he won’t let Xiao Cheng die. But somehow Xia Mo thinks she’s still in a dream. She sees him as Luo Xi. She stares right back at his face and in misery asks for his forgiveness. It’s Ou Chen!!!
Of course, Ou Chen is hurt. He looks at her in pained disbelief. She continues her disillusions and remarks that maybe he’s punishing her. She hurt him for Xiao Cheng that’s why the heavens want to take Xiao Cheng from her.
Ou Chen: The one that must be punished is me. It’s me who used marriage so Lou Xi would get hurt. Xiao Cheng rejected the surgery. It’s all because I’m too selfish.
Finally, she recognizes Ou Chen!
Xia Mo: The selfish one is really me. For Xiao Cheng, I know I would hurt Luo Xi, but still I broke up with him. I didn’t know marrying you can give the same amount of pain. I also knew that even with the kidney, Xiao Cheng can still die, but still I tried to follow that path.
Ou Chen: I don’t care. You weren’t wrong. The one who did wrong was me. It was I who wanted too much. It was me who was overbearing that.
Xia Mo: Maybe after I leave I could always be with mom and Xiao Cheng and Luo Xi, but only you Ou Chen. I’m sorry to leave you all by yourself.
This is just too sad. Everybody suffers from guilt.😦
For Xia Mo’s sake, Ou Chen is driven to mend his selfish ways. He actually drafted and signed the divorce papers. This is funny. They just got married yesterday. And now, he’s actually planning a divorce? What’s this a 24-hour marriage? This is not Vegas people!
Well, as far as Ou Chen is concerned, a divorce is the only way for Xiao Cheng to agree with the surgery. But Xiao Cheng remains steadfast. He can’t agree to Ou Chen’s deal. He just can’t let him lose a kidney and lose Xia Mo too. It would be too unfair. And if Sister knew, she would feel worse. And no matter how much Ou Chen tries to convince Xiao Cheng, he can’t seem to be persuaded. And all Ou Chen can do is beg for Xiao Cheng to save Xia Mo.
Ou Chen: All her pains were caused by me, and the only thing I can do for her is the surgery. I’m not asking you to understand me,I just wish that you would give me a chance. Give me a chance to pay her back.
