Everyone gets ready for the day's hike around the mountain. This is the day they will uncover the secrets to winning! However, at the same time, Huang Jing has gotten more sick. Qi Ying as well, even with Lu Xia best care. Coach Qi was to take them to the hospital that morning but she leaves the team with instructions that she knows and hopes the team the best. Anbao had offer to go with Coach Qi but Coach Qi doesn't want the trip to be cut short for Anbao so she tells Anbao to stay behind and watch the teams.

While the Yu Feng team goes out to the court to do their usual practice with Xu Xingzi, Yu Qing goes to the mountains to look of the secret. Anbao is left behind though. Yan Zhiming didn't let her go.

Yan Zhiming: You will stay here because I said so.

Anbao: Wow, you're using seniority? (Yan Zhiming nods, Anbao furrow her brows) Fine!...I'll stay if you give me a valid reason.

Yan Zhiming: There are snake, racoons, rough rocks, (lean towards her and whisper) and bugs.

Anbao: Bugs? (a shiver runs down her spine) Like the one by the stream?

Yan Zhiming: Yup, if you think you can handle it.

Anbao: I- I just planned to not be in your way, staying far away in fact but if there are those bug, I want to stay close.

Jiale comes to her side: Awe, I'm not scared of bugs. How about afterward, I'll take you out to the forest.

Yan Zhiming: Anbao, Jiale will be tired when he comes back.

Jiale puts an arm on Anbao's shoulder: It's not a worry. I won't be bothered. (to Anbao) Alright? (tilts his head) Give me a smile.

Anbao doesn't give a smile but relax her brows and sigh, then nods in defeat.

After the Yu Qing team walks out of view, Anbao quickly jumps over the couch to her journal. She quickly flips to a page then starts writing and sketching.

Anbao writes in the journal angerily: Note: Tell Uncle Yan that Yan Zhiming was bullying me! (quickly sketch a tall stick figure with glasses then adds a pig nose and horns)

      Anbao decides to look through her collected data. With Jiale's diet, he has been increasing his energy. Dachi can nearly match up to his energy now. Anbao marks the page, adding in Dachi's stomach pain, so that she remembers to change something about it. Qiao Chen is also doing well with his jumps. Baiyang's has been getting stronger and stronger with the diet and she wonders if she should lower the Yan juice for Baiyang. (marks it down with a question mark) Lu Xia has remained his height even though she has been adding milk and telling Yan Zhiming to add more stretches but she's not too worried about his height. Mu Siyang says he eats the fish he catches, good omega-3 and vitamin B. Other than that, the captain doesn't share much to Anbao and he's usually in a cold sweat, also lies about some stuff but Anbao doesn't bring it up. As for Zhou Zhi, he can eat really quick, Anbao wonders if she should give him more to eat or make him eat really slowly.
