Yai discusses with his mother that he wants Jom to move in with him, feeling it’s improper that he extended the invitation but Jom is staying with someone else. His mother points out that Robert isn’t a stranger, but Yai remains insistent that he doesn’t want to inconvenience Robert. She proposes having Jom stay at their home and share a room with the other male servants, but Yai suggests that Jom could help him take care of his business. Yai clarifies that having Jom around could ease his burden, especially since his father is often busy, and Chan constantly has to accompany him. Yai’s mother and Prik express their hesitations, concerned that Jom might bring trouble in the future. Yai, however, urges his mother to trust him, emphasizing that Jom is not a bad person but is simply going through a tough time. His mother agrees since it’s his decision, but she warns him about his father, who could become upset when he discovers that a stranger has been made as his majordomo. She fears that this could strain their relationship once again but eventually agrees. Jom is quietly packing his belongings when Ming asks about what’s bothering him. Jom admits that he’s uncertain about what will happen once he moves to the other house. Ming says that it’s a positive move for him, but Jom expresses his unease about not knowing anyone there. At least where he is, he has Ming as a friend. Ming tries to comfort him by assuring him that even if he moves to the other house, their friendship will remain unchanged. Yai accompanies Jom to the Palathip house when Yai notices that Jom is staring. Jom explains that he’s simply excited to start working there. Yai reassures him, mentioning that Prik will provide him with information about his responsibilities until his father returns to meet him. His father has been away for work but is expected back in the next few days. Jom, feeling anxious, asks about his father’s demeanor. Yai explains that his father is not a harsh person, he can be strict but he believes that Jom will understand once they meet. Yai shows Jom his new bedroom and Jom responds with a smile, saying that he likes it. Yai also expresses his fondness for the room, noting that they are now living under the same roof as they exchange smiles.

Prik takes Jom on a tour around the house, explaining that after Luang moved there for his career, he had the house constructed, along with a smaller guesthouse. Intrigued, Jom asks about the construction, but Prik admits she doesn’t know. He then asks about her background but Prik scolds him gently, instructing him to blend in and focus on his responsibilities instead. She begins explaining his duties, such as preparing for Yai’s morning routine, making his bed, and getting his bath ready. In the kitchen, she hands him a plate of food, but he mistakenly assumes it’s for him. She clarifies that the meal is for Yai and explains his afternoon routine. Unless Yai accompanies Luang, he spends his afternoons reading at his desk or in the pavilion near the river. Jom’s responsibility will be to serve him desserts after every meal. Curious, Jom asks about Yai’s age, and upon learning that Yai is 20, he wonders why Yai isn’t attending university. Prik reveals that Yai is tutored by a teacher hired by his father, who hopes that his son will work for the state, just like him. As Prik instructs Jom to deliver the dessert to Yai, she emphasizes that he should not venture outside at night, warning him about the potential danger of being mistaken for a rebel. Jom dutifully delivers the sweets to Yai, who asks if he’s feeling tired after learning about his new responsibilities from Prik. Jom admits to feeling a bit exhausted, and Yai reassures him that he’ll try to make things easier. As Yai enjoys his dessert, he notices Jom staring and when asked, Jom explains that he’s just admiring the roti Yai is eating. Yai shares that it’s called Lutti and happens to be his mother’s favorite. He kindly offers Jom a taste who finds it delicious and takes the opportunity to ask Yai what he was doing. Yai informs Jom that he has just finished studying and now plans to rest since he’s feeling tired so he asks if Jom could read for him. Jom begins reading the book but is taken aback by its content, prompting him to close it. Yai notices his reaction and asks if he’s tired, pointing out that he saw Jom frowning. Jom explains, saying he might have been “into it” and clarifies that he picked up the phrase from an English-speaking missionary who used to teach him near his home. Yai then asks if Jom doesn’t like the book but Jom quickly goes into a heated explanation, describing the character in the book as a “bastard” and expressing his disagreement with the character’s actions, even though he understands that such behavior was normal for the period. Yai questions if Jom doesn’t live in that time period, to which Jom clarifies that he was referring to the era portrayed in the poem and excuses himself to attend to the dishes.

In the kitchen, Ming strikes up a conversation with Jom about being the majordomo, and Jom quickly reveals that there’s more work to do than just gardening. Ming adds that at least Jom is safe from the foreign master, who doesn’t like him. Jom agrees and acknowledges that there are indeed many people who dislike him. Lamyai interjects into their conversation, remarking that it’s probably because Jom became Yai’s majordomo out of nowhere. Ming steps in to defend Jom, suggesting they should be happy for him, but Lamyai continues to provoke him. Jom attempts to calm Ming down and prevent a fight, but eventually, Lamyai leaves, taunting Ming as she does. Ming tries to console Jom, assuring him not to pay attention to Lamyai’s hurtful words. However, Jom can’t help but feel down since he knows what Lamyai said is true. At night, Eeang Peung is engrossed in her reading, explaining to Maey that she’s studying to gain knowledge and protect herself from getting taken advantage of. Maey suggests that she should discuss her interest in learning with her father, but Eeang Peung knows that it wouldn’t change anything. Maey expresses her concern, and Eeang Peung comforts her by gently touching her cheek. Their moment is interrupted when Robert enters the room, prompting Maey to hide under the bed with the book. Robert tries to seduce Eeung Peung however, she remains indifferent and gets straight to the point, asking why he’s there. Robert invites her to join the pig racing club on Christmas day, but she declines, expressing her discomfort with how the others look at her. She changes the subject and asks whether he’s found a pig trainer yet so Robert mentions that he’s considering Jom for the role based on James’ suggestion. Eeang Peung becomes angry that Robert is willing to exploit Jom, even after accusing him. Robert’s anger flares, and he grabs Eeang Peung’s arm in frustration before leaving the room without further confrontation. Robert heads straight to Fong Kaew’s room to continue harassing her.

Meanwhile, Maey finds it difficult to sleep and decides to take a walk. During her stroll, she crosses paths with Ming, who invites her to have a drink with him. They sit down to enjoy their drinks, and the conversation soon turns to Jom, who has become Yai’s majordomo. Ming notices that Maey seems troubled, so she asks if he has ever had feelings for someone he shouldn’t have. Ming takes a sip of his drink and admits that he still feels that way even now. Maey presses him for more details, wanting to know who the person is, but Ming merely encourages her to drink more and forget her worries. Prik discovers Maey getting into bed late and expresses concern, reminding her of the potential dangers for a woman like her going out to drink. On the other hand, Ming returns home in high spirits after his meeting with Maey. His mother confronts him about it, stating that the foreign master disapproves of his servants drinking in the house. Ming, however, retorts that it’s likely his mother who despises it because it’s what his father did. His mother decides to just let Ming be. At the Palathip house, Jom prepares Yai for bedtime, ensuring he’s comfortable. Curious, Yai asks what Jom does if he can’t fall asleep. Jom suggests counting sheep to help, but he confesses that he usually loses count around ten. Then, he mentions that as a child, having someone scratch his back helped him sleep. Yai inquires if Jom could do that for him, but Jom remains silent. Yai quickly reassures him that it’s alright and that they can consider it another time since today was a big day for him. In his room, Jom reflects on his past with Ohm while clutching his old clothes. He replays Yai’s response to his question about why he was chosen. Yai elaborates that the role of a majordomo is quite intimate; it requires trust and a certain level of favor, but competence is equally important. Jom then asks if the others will also have the chance to be one, to which Yai clarifies that ultimately, his father will make the final decision.

Yai descends the stairs and approaches Jom, who has been getting accustomed to using the typewriter. He reviews the document Jom has done, stating that it’s good but needs improvement in paragraphing. Yai decides to lend a hand by sitting beside Jom and personally teaching him. However, Yai finds himself captivated by Jom’s diligent work, and in a moment, he stops Jom from typing by gently holding onto his hands. They get interrupted when Lek comes, requesting Yai to draw him an airplane. Yai completes the drawing, but Lek comments that it’s not pretty. Jom, curious, asks to see the drawing, and Yai hesitantly hands it over, earning a smile from Jom who finds the drawing cute. Jom agrees to draw Lek a new picture so Lek asks if he can draw his piglet in return, promising to show it to his father. They head to the farm, and Jom starts sketching. However, a sudden gust of wind catches Jom’s attention, and he becomes disoriented. He finds himself alone and follows the sound of Uncle Tan’s voice. Confused, he looks back and sees himself sitting down and sketching, along with the others. Lek approaches Jom who is sketching and pats his shoulder, which brings Jom out of the strange experience. Yai, concerned, asks Jom what’s wrong but Robert then approaches them and inquires if Jom could train his piglet. Yai, however, declines on Jom’s behalf, stating that Jom is his majordomo now and is busy. Robert persists, offering a special wage, but Yai suggests that he find someone else. Robert becomes angry, emphasizing that he’s doing it for their family, criticizing Ya’s support before leaving. Prik pulls Yai aside to discuss the matter, expressing concern about Jom potentially causing trouble, and reminds Yai that Robert is Luang’s favorite. Yai asks Prik to trust him with teary eyes, explaining that he hasn’t had many opportunities to make choices for himself. Prik gives in, unable to resist. Meanwhile, Khamsan gets embroiled in a fight after hearing them gossip about the foreign master.

At the main house, with everyone in high spirits, Yai’s father arrives. They gather on the couch, and Luang assures them he has good news to share once everyone is together. Lek eagerly shows his father Jom’s artwork, which surprises him as he hasn’t heard about Yai’s new majordomo yet. Curious, Luang decides to visit the Palathip house to inquire about Jom and is displeased that Yai let Jom in despite his uncertain background. Yai stands firm, ready to take responsibility for any issues. Chan reports that no dangerous items were found in Jom’s room, but Luang still wants to assess his abilities. Jom demonstrates, and Yai’s father acknowledges his skills with some reservations. Frustrated, Yai mentions that his father even has problems with his business. Luang decides not to scold him too much and delivers the good news: Uncle Dech will be joining them for dinner. He asks Yai to instruct his majordomo to prepare an outfit for him, surprising both Yai and Jom, as Luang seems to have accepted Jom’s presence. While helping Yai with his tie and coat, Jom expresses surprise at Yai’s father’s strictness. He asks Yai why he’s been so helpful, and Yai simply states his desire for independence. Jom finishes dressing Yai, and Yai tells him he can sleep before him as he might return late. Despite Yai’s suggestion not to wait up, Jom can’t resist waiting by the door. Yai arrives home drunk, calling out for Jom. They make their way inside, but Yai stumbles and they both fall on the front house stairs. Jom tries to help Yai up, but he falls to the floor once more while Jom is turning on the lights. Jom attempts to carry him while Yai mumbles that he feels like he’s dreaming as rests his head on Jom’s thigh. Jom asks if Yai had a fight with his father, but Yai falls silent. To make Yai more comfortable, Jom starts unbuttoning his waistcoat and loosening his tie. Yai asks if Jom is thinking about his past lover, but Jom clarifies that he has no lover anymore—that it has ended. Yai holds onto Jom’s hands as he gently undoes his tie and recites a sweet poem, ending with the sentiment that one lover is enough for him. As Yai dozes off, he clings to Jom’s hand.

It appears that Jom has recalled that the drawings he saw in the future might be his own and that these drawings are somehow connected to the strange experiences he had at the farm, where he felt pulled away from the present moment. Is this something potentially dangerous to his existence?
