        He Xinglong walks into school and Tang Jiale immediately greets him at the gate and strikes up a conversation about the lottery ceremony that they will be attending today. They start walking to class but then Jiale says he forgot something at the tennis clubhouse; asking if He Xinglong would go with him. 

      When they get there, Dachi is taking some notes for class. Dachi invites He Xinglong to sit with him while Jiale shuffles through the place. He Xinglong sits down and reads a book while Jiale turns the place upside down looking for his misplaced item. 

Dachi clears his throat: Ahem, uh Xinglong, it's actually great that you are here. I have something to ask you.

He Xinglong puts down his book: Yes?

He Xinglong puts down his book: Yes?

Dachi leans in: Well, I like a girl but I wonder if she'll like me back.

He Xinglong gives a confused look: How can I help in that? 

  Jiale's searching suddenly quiets down as Dachi continues: Well, she's someone you know very well. I wonder if anyone likes her or if she likes anyone.

Xinglong thinks about it for a second: A girl? I don't really know any girl other than the girls with us at tennis but event hen I don't know them well.

Dachi: Yes! She's one of them.

Xinglong: You like Peng Xiang?

Dachi looks to Jiale still shuffling through things and a little stuffed animal is thrown at Dachi so he continues: No, it's not Peng Xiang.

He Xinglong: Dachi, I feel like I am not good at this subject.

Dachi: No, you're doing great! (jiale throws a big pillow that hits the back of Dachi's chair) It's Anbao!

Xinglong puts his hand on his chin: Ohhh~~~~

Dachi: Well, do you know anyone that likes her?

Xinglong: No...but why does that matter?

Dachi: Well, if I am going to like her, I wonder if she already likes someone that like her...you know?

Xinglong: Not really.

Jiale throws another pillow at Dachi's chair so Dachi speaks again: Well then, my intentions are to take her out tomorrow for dinner. Do you think it's a good plan?

Xinglong: uh- (Jiale runs up by him)

Xinglong: uh- (Jiale runs up by him)
