Xiao Lai is sent back in time and finds himself helping Xiao Duan hold Luo Hu back.

You Li appears and chides her two classmates for bothering Luo Hu. Apparently she had invited the other here to teach her how to swim. After the pair leaves, Xiao Lai is wondering why the heck he’s there. Then he remembers he needs to stop Tian Tian from meeting up with Luo Hu at the swimming pool and runs after them.

Xiao Lai goes to find Tian Tian and tells her he wants to go study with her at the library. Tian Tian thinks he’s acting weird and refuses. She needs a break from studying and already has plans to meet up with You Li at the swimming pool. Xiao Lai is persistent in trying to get her to change her mind.

At the swimming pool, You Li is enjoying herself with her swimming lesson with Luo Hu. Xiao Duan is eyeing them enviously. Hao Nan is there too but is just fine playing by himself.

Their teacher comes and finds Tian Tian and Xiao Lai bickering. He praises Tian Tian and sends her on her way to the pool. Meanwhile Xiao Lai is left behind to get scolded for a bit before he too is released.

Xiao Lai runs to the pool and calls You Li over. He tells her to quickly take Luo Hu away. He admits that he, Luo Hu, and Tian Tian were middle school classmates. Luo Hu’s only reason for coming here was to see Tian Tian, not You Li. She doesn’t believe him and tells him to scram.

He returns back to school and continues their self-study session. When he looks up, he stares at Tian Tian and smiles. It’s so late, he figured Luo Hu would have left by now.

The next time he looks up, he notices Tian Tian is gone from her seat. He realizes she must have gone to the field to make her rounds. He remembers Tian Tian bumping into Luo Hu before and that’s when the kiss happened. He refuses to let it happen again and abruptly runs out of the classroom. His friends are like wtf.

You Li goes after him to see what he’s up to. Xiao Lai tells her to go look for Luo Hu otherwise she’ll regret it. Then he runs off again.

Hao Nan and Xiao Duan follow Xiao Lai on to the field. They split up with Hao Nan and Xiao Duan looking to light up the field and Xiao Lai looking for Tian Tian.
