Episode 4.

In their dormitory, Bu Xia tries to sleep, but the ghosts keep on bothering him. Some want him to get revenge on them, while others even try to guilt him for ignoring them. He almost succeeds until someone says they might as well show themselves to him, making him afraid. He dials Jiang Chi, who is currently working part-time and asks him to go home immediately for a midnight snack as an excuse to seek rest from the voices. On the other hand, Jiang Chi assumes his roommate misses him already, which makes him happy.

Meanwhile, Bu Xia tries to drown out unwanted voices by going outside, but they still follow him. A Senior student who secretly likes him, as revealed by one of the ghosts, calls him and taps him on the shoulder, which startles the former, causing him to step backward and bump into the person behind him, who turns out to be Jiang Chi, smiling widely. Jiang Chi comes forward and faces the Senior student, who nervously walks away. When the law students turn back, he presents a food takeout to Bu Xia, who touches his hand and smiles at him brightly, relieved at the silence of the unwanted voices. He taps Jiang Chi and motions for him to go back to their room. A group of people take photos of them and cheer for them in the school forum.

Jiang Chi observes as his roommate eats and asks him why the latter requested him to come back immediately. Bu Xia thinks that he can’t tell the former the real reason, so he does not answer. Meanwhile, the law student thinks he should give more room for Bu Xia to confess his feelings toward him by asking if the latter misses him, causing him to spill his drink. As Jiang Chi cleans up the mess, the former notices that there is a wound in the law student’s arm and gets the medicine box to treat him. While being mended, Jiang Chi says he is just waiting for Bu Xia to treat him, which made the latter’s heart beat loudly. They talked about their parental situation which resulted in Bu Xia suggesting for the law student to visit their shrine. When the law notices the scattered chanting papers in their room, the basketball player explains that his grandfather made it because he is afraid of ghosts. He thinks that the law student will not believe him as he is a man of science, but instead, Jiang Chi puts one of the chanting papers at the back of his mobile phone and tells Bu Xia that he’ll be there if he needs him to appease his fear. Bu Xia apologizes to Jiang Chi for thinking he is mean when he is actually thoughtful; the law student tells him it’s only for him as he gets up.

The following day, Bu Xia lines up at a famous breakfast stall and sees a classmate who was able to buy one already. He takes his classmate’s food and brings it back to their room to surprise Jiang Chi as part of a performance to convince the latter to join their basketball team. He brings him to lunch again but overhears him talking to a female Senior student about apartment rentals. Thinking that the other is looking for another place to move in, he leaves him the lunch box and walks out. Jiang Chi tries to follow him, but another student stops him and comments that she can’t believe the two are actually close since people at the school forum are arguing that they are enemies while some are shipping them romantically. She shows him the photos posted at the school forum that earn him a smile, not knowing that Bu Xia actually came back and saw them. Bu Xia thinks the two are flirting and goes back to sulking.

Meanwhile, Jiang Chi meets up with the other basketball players who are still on the quest to recruit him and asks them why they still want to recruit him when the basketball team actually always loses. The basketball players tell him that it’s their Seniors’ dream and for Bu Xia to also continue doing what he loves since it is basketball that enabled him to go to their school. With that knowledge, Jiang Chi tells them he’ll join but has conditions.

Back in their dormitory common room, Bu Xia sees Jiang Chi smiling at his phone and assumes that he is talking to the female Senior student from earlier, not knowing that Jiang Chi is actually checking the school forum about them. Bu Xia tries to sneak into the law student’s phone but fails. He sits beside him and tells Jiang Chi that he knows he is not the best roommate, but he hopes that the latter does not regret living with him and will not move out. Jiang Chi realizes that Bu Xia saw him talking about apartment rentals with the female Senior student, and he assures him that he is already used to living with him, which made Bu Xia confess that he likes living with him as well. The law student tells the basketball player that if he really wants him to join the team, he must come along with him. They go to the female Senior student’s apartment to paint, revealing that this is the reason why she talked to Jiang Chi about apartments. On their way back, Bu Xia asks Jiang Chi if he likes the Senior student, but the latter just smiles and says “Jealous” pertaining to him as they reach his motorcycle. He helps Bu Xia put on his helmet and makes him hug him as they ride back.

While the two are hanging out in the park, they are continuously talked about in the school forum as pictures of them are posted. Meanwhile, the basketball players think Bu Xia has taken the romantic strategy to recruit Jiang Chi for their team.

 

Writer’s Thoughts:

Although it looks like the relationship between the two has gotten better, confusion still hangs in the air as Jiang Chi continues to assume Bu Xia likes him romantically while the latter remains oblivious. Let’s see what will happen once the boy who can hear the voice of the ghosts realizes the chaos he unintentionally orchestrated with his roommate’s feelings in the next episodes!
