Under the cliff, TanTan unconsciously is laying down on the ground, with Prince Li on her top. In a few minutes later, when TanTan awakes, she feels the her body is pressed heavily. TanTan looks on their top, she realizes that they had fallen into a hole?

’Falling from the cliff then falling to the hole? Great!’ No wonder she feels so much pain around everywhere on her body. She is also can feel the warmth of Prince Li’s body and as a maiden, she feels uncomfort.

"Get off from me..." She pushes Prince Li out from her, Prince Li groans softly.

TanTan notices a dagger stabbed on his left shoulder. She instantly regrets to push him as TanTan recites what just happened,

’Right, he is stabbed because he protected me...’

TanTan is not sure either she needs to pull the dagger out or not. She remembers in movie, the actor was ever hurt like this and he pulls it out before can be treated. But it is not a movie, is that right to do?

But when TanTan is hesitated, Prince Li grabs her hand, he speaks weakly,

"Pull...pull it...be..careful...its...

its..poisonous..urggh"

Prince Li knows it because he can feels the effects come so quick and weaken his body.

’He got poisoned...!!!’

In her past, as a girl scout in her school, TanTan had an experience how to handle the bitting of poisonous snake but a poisonous dagger? Maybe not too different?

*gulp, TanTan is pulling the dagger carefully but quick,

"Arghhh..." the Prince Li, the fresh blacky blood comes out from his shoulder. TanTan immediately pulls out Prince Li’s shirt.

"Wha..what do...you??" Prince Li surprised but he feels weak to object her.

"Calm down...you must calm down so the poison will not spreading quickly. I am checking your wound."

TanTan rips her below cloth long enough to cover the wound area,

Prince Li just silent and letting TanTan wrapping his bare shoulder, he observes the way she folds the cloth, its quite good and it likes not the first time she had done it. But what makes he feels weird mostly that she doesn’t look disgusted with the blood? He remembers in the past, the arrogant HuaMuTan was disgusted with blood. She even didn’t want to cook by herself because she didn’t want to touch the dead fish which still had the blood. And also she is willing to rip her own cloth?? The past Hua MuTan would never do that, her appearance is the priority for her no matter in what situation be.

"Is HuaMuTan really has changed? She is too different than HuaMuTan I know..."

Prince Li asks in his mind.

After TanTan finishes wrapping the wound, she notices that Prince Li keeps staring to her. She stares back to him. In a few second, they looks into their each other eyes. Somehow TanTan feels shy in her heart and so she stands, looking around beside the Prince Li.

"We...we can’t stay here...the poison must be cleaned immediately and you must get treatment....I wish that ShuangAi is here...She will know how to treat you..."

"ShuangAi...urghh" As he puts on his cloth back slowly, he thinks,

’Ah, yeah ShuangAi and FangFang are still worrily waiting for them at home...Hate to admit but HuaMuTan is right, we must move...’

TanTan walks around to check where they are, it looks like some kind of a cave. But she can feels the flow of wind so there is must be some way out here. She looks at Prince Li’s condition and she also feels pain again on her back, assuming her wound might opened because of the falling.

"Can you walk?"

Prince Li tries to stand up but it isn’t working. Now he is too weak to move.

’Obviously not...and I am also too weak to carry him out...What should I do? Should I go first and find help?’

"Maybe I should go out to find help..."

"No! ..." Prince Li evaluates the situation, ManQi should had finished to eliminate the killers for now and began to look for them. But it would be dangerous to let HuaMuTan goes if there are still have killers out there.

"Just wait here...ManQi will come to save us." Prince Li tries to sit leaning on the closest rocky wall and tries to rest his body, to slow down the poison. TanTan decides to do what Prince Li said, it should be not too long for ManQi can find them.

TanTan knows nothing she can do for this moment beside she is also feels tired and painful, so she just sits beside Prince Li, a little bit far.

Prince Li can’t help to keep curious to TanTan,...he glances to TanTan,

"How... do you know to band the wound very well?"

TanTan feels a little surprise that Prince Li is being initiative to talk to her...

"I..learn it from My Mom. She is good with wounded people..." TanTan, reminiscing her Mom who was a nurse before she retired.

’Princess

"We...we can’t stay here...the poison must be cleaned immediately and you must get treatment....Oh I wish that ShuangAi is here...She will know how to treat you..."

"ShuangAi...urghh" As he puts on his cloth back slowly, he thinks,

’Ah, yeah ShuangAi and FangFang are still worrily waiting for them at home...Hate to admit but HuaMuTan is right, we must move...’

Prince Li can’t help to keep curious to TanTan,...he glances to TanTan,

"How... do you know to band the wound very well?"

TanTan feels a little surprise that Prince Li is being initiative to talk to her...she thinks that she would be ignored a whole night they trapped there.

"I..learn it from My Mom. She is good with wounded people..." TanTan, reminiscing her Mom who was a nurse before she retired. Her Mom taught her any kinds of first aid in case she needs it someday. TanTan smirks to herself coz she doesn’t expect to use the skill at this kind of time.

But Prince Li thought TanTan was talking about HuaMuTan’s Mom,

’Princess LiShuiXian indeed was a kind-hearted woman’ He remembers when he was a little boy, he ever fell down coz of the mischief trick from the little first prince. At that time, in coincidence he met Princess LiShuiXian and the little HuaMuTan who visited palace. Then Princess LiShuiXian kindly binded his wound and cheered him up. Sometimes, he wondered why HuaMuTan didn’t have any similarity with her Mom except for their face. But now maybe he is wrong. They are mother and daughter after all.

Because Prince Li seems drawn into his mind, there is a long silent between him and TanTan. TanTan doesn’t like this weird silent atmosphere. And also she just realizes she didn’t say anything yet for what he had sone before, so she gains her courage to open her voice,

"Mm,...I want to say thank you for saving me before...and..sorry to make you got the wound.."

Prince Li widens his eyes, he doesn’t expect those words come out from her mouth.

"Well...if you wanna say thank you, you should say it to ShuangAi. She was the one who pushes me to find you and bring you back..."

"Oh of course...I will,...I’ll thank her later. ShuangAi is really good to care about me...Mmm, maybe it sounded weird for you but I really love to see you both together, you both will make a good couple..."

’IT’S DIFFERENT...it’s too different! Although she is pretending, its too good... she didn’t disgust with blood anymore, she didn’t angry when she heard I mentioned about ShuangAi, now she even gives a compliment about me with ShuangAi?’

Now Prince Li looks at TanTan in a new way, but his suspicion can’t wiped away easily. He asks but more in confusion tone than in an anger tone.

"What is your truly plan, HuaMuTan?"

"I don’t have any plan! I really don’t!" TanTan takes her deep breathe before continues, "It just I had changed...Listen, I know you don’t trust me but I still want to tell you that I am not HuaMuTan that you know anymore..."

TanTan looks seriously to Prince Li, she can see the suspicion look from Prince Li’s face.

’What should I do to make him believe? Should I just tell him my true identity? Will he believe that I come from the future, entering this body? It sounds crazier...’

But they immediately stop their conversation as they hear echoes of a voice calling,

"Prince Li....Masterr!"

"Over here!!!" Knowing that it is Manqi, Prince Li and TanTan shouts to give their direction, Prince Li looks to TanTan, "We’ll see if your words are true..."

Not too long they can see ManQi appears, walking rushes toward them. TanTan explains what happens and then ManQi immediately carries Prince Li on his back and they ready to go back to the Li Mansion. But after ManQi goes first, sudden TanTan returns to the cave and takes the poison dagger which already be covered by other her ripping cloth with her.

’It can become clue for who the killers are...’ She thinks, then she catches up ManQi slowly.
