Su Yu is surprised to see his father react positively to the news after exposing the truth to him. Lao Si thinks it’s fate that all of them met and expresses disappointment when he finds out that his son has severed ties with Wu Bi. Su Yu questions how he can accept the son of the person who married his ex-wife, but his father explains that they have been divorced for 10 years already and have nothing to do with the stepbrothers. He orders his son to bring Wu Bi back. Su Yu tries to make apologies to Wu Bi by picking him up on his bicycle while wearing matching scarves; the latter instead rides in his car but tells the driver to drive slowly. Ultimately, he surprises Su Yu by unexpectedly riding on the back of his bicycle, suggesting that they are once again friends. They spent New Year’s Eve with Aunt Zhuo and Duo Duo and discovered that Wu Bi is a few days older than Su Yu. They teased him by referring to the former as “Ge ge” (older brother). The two boys and Duo Duo decide to write their wishes and bury them beneath the tree, promising to open them in ten years. Wu Bi receives a call from his cousin, who is returning to China with his girlfriend. At the same time, two robbers break into Aunt Zhou’s house and attempt to abuse her, but Duo Duo calls Lao Si, who rushes over with Wu Bi and Su Yu. Wu Bi and Lao Si hit the intruders, while Su Yu consoled the sobbing Duo Duo. Su Yu confides in Wu Bi at home about his feelings regarding his father and Aunt Zhou’s relationship and how he never wants to see the little girl cry again. While he wants to be selfish, he is aware that his father abandons the concept of marrying Aunt Zhou for him and admits that all he wants is to be given a love that he does not have to share with anyone. Later on, Su Yu decides to be honest and asks his father to marry Aunt Zhou, but gets dismissed. His father believes that the only time he will marry is when his son is already settled. Su Yu reveals that he is afraid that something awful will happen to the mother and daughter and that they will be unable to save them. He firmly asks Lao Si to marry Aunt Zhou for him. Su Yu tries to be happy at the wedding banquet when Wu Bi joins him and invites him to spend the night at his. Su Yu glances back as they leave the party, realizing that this is a watershed moment in his life, and cries. Wu Bi hugs him and promises him that they will always be there for each other as brothers, never making the other feel like they are simply extras in their family.
