Episode 4.

Yi Ming woke up alone in bed the next day. Ting Ting suddenly comes back to the bed and massages her back. Her husband came home that day. She told her husband that she has yoga class that day, and her husband told her that their son’s lunch boxes had run out. She told her to cook for their son but she ended up giving the list of the food he can order for Xiao Zhe. Ting-Ting is waiting for her outside her home. While waiting for the rain to stop, Ting Ting noticed that her mood was not that good. Though the latter told her she was fine, Ting Ting knows that she’s not.

Flash to their high school life, the two girls are having a good time at their volleyball training. They walked home together that night. While walking home, they are talking about what school will Yi Ming attend in college. While walking, the two of them decided to stay in an alley for a while and started hugging each other. They both feel calm in each other’s arms. A moment later, a man showed up in front of them. They got scared and Ting Ting drove her bike faster but they slipped and both of them fell.

The next day, the two of them were summoned to their school’s counselling office. Their school received a report about a suspicious man who did something inappropriate to some students at their school. So they were questioned why they were in that dark alley late at night. The counsellor continues questioning them on what happened that night but none of them answers. So the counsellor told them to write what happened that night.

After the counselling, Yi Ming confronted Ting Ting. She told her that they don’t need to go home together because her father told her to quit volleyball. She also told her that what happened to them that night wasn’t an accident and it was because they are too close. Ting Ting asks her why she’s mad and the latter answers she’s mad because they are not okay and they’re disgusting. Yi Ming graduated from high school and before she left school, she bid her goodbyes to Ting Ting. She told her to study and practise hard and she will watch their games too. She also told her that her father wants her to study in Canada in her sophomore year. Yi Ming wants to take a picture of them as a memento but because of disappointment, Ting Ting walks away.

Episode 5.

The fifth episode starts with a flashback of their high school life, where Ting Ting is waiting for Yi Ming after a performance. Ting Ting gave her flowers and asked her if she could go celebrate with her or if she could go home with her. But Yi Ming refused telling her she was now living with a friend but the latter found out that she was living with her boyfriend. Feeling devastated, Ting Ting walked out but Yi Ming followed her to the alley.

Ting Ting is angry and sad because she felt that Yi Ming left her alone. But Yi Ming told her that she’ll find someone for her and she apologized because she thinks there are some differences between friendship and romantic love.

Back in the future, the two women did a late-night road trip. Ting Ting asks Yi Ming to run away with her and her son but she refuses, telling her she can’t run away from home. But Ting Ting asks her if she’s really happy in her life now and assures her that she will always be there for her. In the middle of their conversation, Yi Ming’s husband and son saw them talking.

They went to Yi Ming’s after Yi Ming’s husband saw them. Yi Ming felt awkward having Ting Ting and her husband around so she told the latter to go home even though her husband says Ting Ting can stay for that night. She walked her out of their house but they didn’t talk. Before going to bed, her husband asks her why she didn’t recognize Ting Ting when they met her. And that moment, Yi Ming breaks her silence. At first, they talk about Xiao Zhe and how her husband could communicate properly with their son but the conversation turns into an argument. And then suddenly, Yi Ming admitted to her husband that she was in love with Ting Ting. But her husband didn’t believe her and he thought that she just wanted a divorce.

 

Episode 6.

In the last episode, Yi Ming’s husband picked her up after work. While driving home, they saw Ting Ting with their son walking in the middle of the night. They stop the car to get Xiao Zhe. Her husband reminds Ting Ting that she’s not part of the family and Yi Ming will not contact her again. Over dinner, Yi Ming’s husband told her that he was transferring back to Taipei and that he told his mother that he got a promotion. Yi Ming said that he didn’t have to lie, but her husband can’t tell his mother the real reason why he was coming back to Taipei.

After dinner, the couple had a heated argument. Yi Ming’s husband is so angry about what she confessed. He asked why she fall in love with Ting Ting, a woman like her and she answered that Ting Ting knows her. Her husband felt disappointed that after what he did for their family for the past 10 years, she will just fall in love with someone else. Her husband packed his things and told her to get out of the room.

To calm the situation down, Yi Ming walked out of the house and later found herself going to Ting Ting’s house. Ting Ting’s mom saw her and told her that Ting Ting is not living there anymore and she’s now living with her boyfriend. She told her also that Ting Ting should get married so she’ll stop acting like a child in her 30s. Yi Ming was shocked by what she found out so she went to Ting Ting’s new address. Ting Ting got shocked when she saw her in front of her door.

Ting Ting followed Yi Ming and they had an argument. Yi Ming feels stupid and thinks that Ting Ting just wants revenge for what she did to her in the past. But Ting Ting says she likes her. She wanted to know if what happened to her in the past was real and not just an imagination but Yi Ming insisted that she just came to break up her family but in reality, she has a boyfriend. But Ting Ting told her that she’s the one who told her to have a boyfriend and that they are disgusting.

She told her that she was selfish because she always leave her because Yi Ming can’t be true to herself. Ting Ting hates herself for liking girls back then because she thinks that maybe if she didn’t fall for her, she’ll be more confident. But after everything they’ve been through, Ting Ting is still in love with her and she’s willing to break up with her boyfriend just to be with her. Yi Ming finally confessed to her that she was envious of Ting Ting because of her free spirit and that she cherished every moment with her because she thought it might be the last. The series ended with Yi Ming admitting that she likes Ting Ting very much and hugged her one last time.

 

This award-winning series showed us that even though we grew older, that doesn’t mean we know ourselves. And even though we hide our true feelings and even if we use other people to hide them, time is the ultimate truth teller. The fragrance of the First Flower made us realize that there are types of people that you can’t wait to keep, and there are types of people you both know, you can never keep.
