Queen Not Getting Off Work (4 Gifts) Episode 3
Like I’ve said, it’ll be more of highlight compilations for 4 Gifts and NOT recaps. Gomen to those who are disappointed, but I believe this is a step I must take . Haha! Melodramatic approach eh?
Just a thought: Humour for this episode is way subtle compared to Episode 2. And that is bad, coz I’m watching this drama, only, for its funny scenes. Hope they’ll have more of that next time.
RuoYi learns about XiaoBin’s mental condition, and thus, she kindly offers him the accessory. And in return, Big Bro RenShao acts all so gentlemanly and nice (gives her a chocolate bar and tends to her wound when she hurts her toe) that she falls deeper and deeper in love with him.
RuoTian desperately looks for JinLong. So desperate that she even threatens to sue almost everybody. For an “outstanding” prosecutor, she sure lacks common sense! JiaLiang couldn’t take the ridiculous act and reproves her outright. And as they were having their blissful moment of togetherness, ShengJie happens to pass by and destroys the ambiance. He ignores the two and walks off like he doesn’t know them at all. Obviously, RuoTian is upset.
Dad had a serious talk with soon-to-be son-in-law, YuXiang.Dad: My whole life’s treasure is right here. I am very thankful for my 4 daughters. They all inherited a feature from their mother. RuoTian is hardworking and naive like their mom. RuoWei inherited their mom’s physical look. RuoYi is warm and caring. As for RuoYu, I always felt that she’s special…because she’s unique. And handing her to you, I can let go without worry. RuoYu’s older sisters have at least some memories about their mom. But when RuoYu was born, their mom passed away and she had no memories of her at all. She would often ask her sisters about their mom, and she would try to put the pieces together to see the blurry and unclear memory. Only then would she feel something called a mother’s love. This breaks my heart.
RuoYu and RuoYi overhears Dad’s confession.
RuoYu: He remembers me. Not only does he remembers me, but he also cares for me. Mom is the same I can feel it.
Despite her sisters objections, RuoYi finally decided to move in and take care of Dad. Unexpectedly, RuoWei also returns home and RuoTian stays in for the night. Seeing all his 4 daughters, Dad is overly happy.
Due to lack of sleep, RuoWei is apparently unfocused at the staff meeting. There, the Editor-in-chief announces that though their performance for the last issue is not bad, they still must come up with fresh interviews. In the end, the Chief challenges RuoWei to get an inclusive interview from the elusive RenShao. And the Queen couldn’t back down, neh?
RenShao hires RuoYi and YuXiang for a certain promotional event (a bicycle competition) called “Fighting for Tie Zhan Mountain”. The said competition is grouped into two routes, the Easy and Difficult. Before RuoYi left, RenShao asks about her wound and that’s enough to bring RuoYi in high spirits.
RuoWei makes her move and invites RenShao for dinner. Once again, she displays her arrogance, of which RenShao couldn’t help but comment. However, she’s not a tad bothered and clarifies that it’s not arrogance but rather confidence. Without beating around the bush, she invites him for an interview. But then, he just laughs it off and rejects her request straightway. Finally, a challenge big enough for the Queen!
RuoTian tries to patch things up with ShengJie. And thankfully, the parasite refuses. Girl, he’s so not worth it! You can’t live with a guy who’s too insecure with you!
RuoTian is overtaken with pain and disappointment. And to emphasize her grief, she walks under the pouring rain, all drenched and acting heartbroken. JiaLiang sees her and convinces her to go home. But then, she’s being stubborn. And so, JiaLiang spits that she’s just being plain stupid. She’s not even in a drama, so she better act more mature.And behold, the six-pack. Haha! JiaLiang sends RuoTian home. She invites him in and then freaks out when he suddenly takes his clothes off.
RuoTian: Why are you just taking it off? JiaLiang: Why else? Do I have to apply for permission? RuoTian: This is my house! JiaLiang: You really do have a manipulative attitude. Prosecutor Zhang, my clothes are all wet. I really want to take my clothes off. Can I? Please accept my request.
And she agrees. JiaLing, however, catches her checking out his muscles and he haughtily smiles.
JiaLiang: Not bad right? RuoTian: Stupid!
The rain continues to pour so heavily, and so JiaLiang proposes to sleep over. She’s a little hesitant. And just to erase all her apprehensions, he volunteers to be handcuffed. To his horror, she really did cuffed him! Haha! Me thinks she’s enjoying this. He starts to protest but RuoTian remains adamant.
JiaLiang: This crazy woman! All my life, I’ve only handcuffed people. Never before have I been handcuffed myself.
That night, RuoTian and JiaLiang had the opportunity to talk about his life. Irene was ShuEr’s sister and RenShao was a transfer student back in their high school days. RenShao, JinLong and JiaLiang were sworn brothers way back. One day, RenShao, JinLong and Irene went for a swim. Unfortunately, Irene had an accident and died. Since then, he hated RenShao. RuoTian apologizes for being too nosy, but JiaLiang assures he’s just fine.
And this is a picture of a very confused woman on top of a very pleased man. Haha! The next morning, RuoTian is startled with the alarm, so she fell directly on top of JiaLiang. She accuses him of taking advantage of her, but we all know that isn’t the case, so she let’s it go. Something must have happened that night coz there was a sudden change of breeze. JiaLiang looks at RuoTian in a different light, and asks her to be his girlfriend. Of course, RuoTian is taken aback and takes it as an insult. But JiaLiang is rather sincere and serious about it. This is the beginning of something…
JiaLiang gives RuoTian a lift on his motor bike. On their way…RuoTian: I’m warning you don’t tell anyone about the thing last night. JiaLiang: What thing? Getting drenched, heartbroken, spending the night together or dating? RuoTian: Definitely not all those. JiaLiang: Then are we dating? *then a light whack puts him in place.
When they arrived, everybody (including Chief Prosecutor) finds the scene a little odd and snoops around. Before JiaLiang leaves, he tells RuoTian that he’ll come after work. Poor little RuoTian ends up explaining the unexplainable event to her boss.
After knowing about the bicycle competition from RuoYi, RuoWei visits RenShao for another attempt to secure the freakin’ interview. RenShao is perplexed to see her more confident after being rejected. And since she won’t take no for an answer, he makes a deal. If she makes it on the top 3 of the difficult route, then he’ll agree to have that interview. She grabs the chance!
At the Police Station, JiaLiang is clearly on a chirpy mood. FunnyFriend notices something strange and concludes that JiaLiang slept elsewhere (to a woman’s place maybe?!) He lays down the signs: 1. His hair is not messy enough. 2. He wears the same clothes in a row. 3. He smells sweet bodywash. Haha! JiaLiang could only laugh at that!
RuoTian wonders if JiaLiang will really come after work. She mulls over his words and by her smile, we know she’s slowly falling for his charms. And yes, he’s there. She’s actually ecstatic to see him waiting. But romantic cliché rules state that she must act hard-to-get and she did. She tries to pass by him, acting nonchalance and all, but he calls her attention. He even drops the formalities and calls her “RuoTian” . She’s rather shocked for his bold moves and insists that he calls her “Prosecutor”. But JiaLiang upholds the Alpha male status and remains resolved. Since she’s out of work, she’s no longer the brave “Prosecutor Zhang” but RuoTian, the girl he’s courting. RuoTian is blown in disbelief. When did she agreed to that? Besides, she doesn’t have any feelings for him. Yeah, tell that to the marines!
JiaLiang leans closer and asks: “Don’t you really have any feelings for me at all?
