    Pei Ze’s home is lavish penthouse suite, with a panoramic view overlooking the city .

 

    Jian Yao is holding a drink, sipping slowly . Since she arrived, she has been quietly listening to the conversations of the others .   At the moment, the topic of conversation is Bo Jinyan .

 

    Shen Dan Wei is sitting opposite Jian Yao: “So… Director Bo has no girlfriend?” 

 

    Jian Yao replies: “I am not sure . "

 

    Shen Dan Wei asks :”Well, has he ever asked you to order flowers for girls, buy presents on his behalf, make dinner reservations etc etc…  If not, he must be single . ”

 

    Jian Yao smiles .   She does not answer .   Pei Ze hears the conversation from the kitchen . He shouts out: “Are you interested in him?  Well, if you are not afraid to lose your job, go ahead and woo him?”  

 

    Shen Dan Wei laughs loudly .   Then she continues to talk to others in the lounge: “I bet you he is still a virgin . ”

 

    The men all laugh aloud .   Pei Ze shouts from the kitchen again: “I second that . ”

 

    Then Jian Yao finally hears Bo Jinyan from the ear piece :”A bunch of morons!"

 

    Jian Yao smiles .

 

    Qian Yu Wen leans back on the sofa: “How can you be so sure?  He’s quite an attractive guy with a great body . Maybe he has a different side to him outside of work… “

 

    Faced with his doubts, Shen Dan Wei replies: “Man and woman who are deprived for a long time usually behaves strangely, like Director Bo and Manager Lin .   They are more critical and easily irritable, it’s a result from abstaining from sex for too long . ”

 

 

   She glances at JYao: "You are a woman .   Do you think I am right?”

 

    Jian Yao thinks for a while .   She answers truthfully: “That’s possible…”

    Jian Yao hears a groan of disgust on the other end .  

 

    -

 

  Inside Bo Jinyan’s car .  

 

His seat is adjusted to a comfortable position .   His lap top is showing the images transferred from the hidden camera in Jian Yao’s brooch .   He has a walkie talkie on the seat beside him .

 

“Professor Bo, our team is in position . ”  

 

He picks up the walkie talkie: “Good . ”

    Jian Yao is chatting with others when she hears a lot of background noise from the ear piece .   She excuses herself to the toilet .  

 

    She ask Bo Jinyan: “Sounds like there’s a lot of people at your end . ”

 

   Bo Jinyan: “I told you I have made some arrangements . ”

 

   - So he is not alone .   He brought helpers .  

 

    Her heart  is at ease :”Thank you . . . . . "

 

    Bo Jinyan  replies :” Don’t have to thank me . Critical and irritable people like to be cautious . ”

 

    Jian Yao: " . . . . . . " So vengeful !!

    The main course was lobster and king crab, Pei Ze is sitting next to Jian Yao . He whispers to her ear: “I saved the best pieces for you .   They are in the platter that’s in front you . Enjoy . ”  

 

“ . . Urr . . thank you . ” She says .   He is leaning too close to her .   Jian Yao tries to moves away .   He smiles at her: “Oh, you blush so easily . ”  

 

Jian Yao is repelled by his actions: “Really?  Maybe it’s bit hot in here . ”

 

 After a few seconds, Pei Ze calls out to Jian Yao :”Look this way . ”   Unconsciously, she looks up and sees a white flash . Pei Ze puts down the phone, and continues to eat leisurely .

 

    Jian Yao: “Why did you take a photo of me?  Delete it . ”

 

    Pei Ze whistles: ”That is my freedom .   Nowadays, it’s hard to find ladies that blushes so easily . "

    After the meal, Jian Yao goes to the bathroom .

 

    "Hey . " She whispers to Bo Jinyan .

 

    "Ah?" He replies in his deep voice . “What happened?”

 

    Jian Yao says: "When the case is over, I want that photo deleted from his phone . ”

 

    "Of course . " He replies .

 

    Jian Yao feels better .   She goes back to the living room .  

 

    -

 

Just as she reaches the living room, Zhou Qin is helping his son to put on his backpack:  “Bye Jian Yao! The little guy needs a shower, and he still has some homework he needs to finish .   See you at work tomorrow . ”

  “Bye”  Jian Yao replies .   From what she has observed this afternoon, Zhou Qin really is a loving and gentle father .  

 

    -

 

    The remaining four people play a board game .   When the game is over, Shen Dan Wei says to the others: “I am leaving now .   My boyfriend is waiting for me downstairs . ” 

 

Jian Yao takes the opportunity: “It’s getting a little late .   I should go too . ”

 

Pei Ze takes her hand bag from her: “ It’s hard to find a taxi in this neighbourhood .   I’ll drive you home . ”  

 

Jian Yao: “… . that’s fine… I can . . ”

 

    Pei Ze starts to walk towards his room with her bag: “Just wait .   I’ll get the car keys . ”

 

    Jian Yao is still trying to resist: “I don’t want to trouble you . ”

 

   By then, Shen Dan Wei has left .   Pei Ze changes his mind: “ Hey, Qian Yu Wen .   Can you give me a hand with the dishes? . ”

 

    Qian Yu Wen looks at him . He chuckles: “Am I your maid?"  But then, he still rolls up his sleeves and walks into the kitchen .  

 

    Only Pei Ze and Jian Yao are left in the living room .

 

    “Let me give you a house tour?" Pei Ze says .

 

    Jian Yao hesitates .   On the other end, Bo Jinyan is giving her the instruction: “Take the tour . ”

 

    -

    It is obvious that the owner of the house is wealthy and knows how to enjoy life .   All the appliances are the latest models of top brands .   There is a special room with fitness equipment and game consoles . He stands next to a cabinet, where there are some novels and car magazines .   There’s also a lot of ornaments in the room- Cars, boxing gloves, flute, and even ink stone and a brush for Chinese writing . Jian Yao asks: "You like calligraphy?"

 

    He smiles: “Just a novice . "

 

    A voice from the living room: “I’m done . ” says Qian Yu Wen: ”See you tomorrow . ”  Then they hear the front door closes .

 

   The house is suddenly very quiet .

 

    Jian Yao says to Pei Ze: "I should go too . "

 

    Pei Ze smiles: "OK,  wait in the living room .   I’ll get my keys . ”

 

    -

 

    Jian Yao collects her hand bag from the couch .  

 

    Bo Jinyan starts the engine .   He’s ready to trail Pei Ze’s car .  

 

    Suddenly, a voice from his walkie talkie: “3rd position reports .   He is shutting off the main electricity switch for his house . ”

 

 The surveillance screen on Bo Jinyan’s laptop turns black .  

 

    -

 

   Suddenly, it’s dark everywhere .  

 

    Jian Yao tries to keep calm: "Pei Ze, is it a power cut?”

 

    No one answers .

 

    Bo Jinyan tells Jian Yao over the ear piece: “He switched off the power .   Wait and see . ”

 

    Jian Yao reaches for the mini defibrillator in her handbag . She hears a light footsteps coming towards her .  

 

 

    "Ah, how unfortunate . A power cut . " It’s Pei Ze’s voice, "I can’t find the car keys .
