Mr Horie, it's late and why has your wife not come?


What, is Cai Zi coming? Hey, she is.

Coming? Hey, yes.

I'm now with the friends, and I will be there soon.

You're really young and beautiful.


Do you take Cai Zi wherever you go these days?

Hey, almost.

Did you take it? What?

That one.

No, I don't need that till now and I won't need it.

Landlady, how?


That one.

He's wondering if you have let your husband take that, medicine, something about that.

Ah, damn you, so I wanna go now.

How? Hey.

But...just talk about it here.


Tell me the truth.


Though I'm not boasting but it's really good.


Young! It's easy to get along with each other.

Why do you so pride?

Tell you the truth, it's true.

How many years olds is he with your daughter's difference?

Three, it's not a problem.

You are so lucky.

Of course, I'm so happy! So, it is the third life and you too.

Me? Is that so good?

Let it be. You have been very good like that all the time. You should consider your daughter's marriage.

But...I'm telling the truth.

I've understood that clearly.

Just have a talk here.

Mr Jue Jing, your wife is here.




How? Have you met with your friends?


Come up.



Long time no see, everyone.

How are you doing recently?


Come up.

Please, please sit down.


Have you bought what you planned?


How's that? Do you want to sit down?

That..I think.

Is it? Are you leaving? Did you get the medicine for me?


So take it out and drink now.

What medicine?

It's Vitamin.

Vitamin? Hey.

Go home and have a rest.

You're right, so, excuse me.

Excuse me, I'm leaving now.

How about Classmate's association?

Leave it to you and do carefully.

Please excuse me.

Please take care of yourself.
