The situation was dangerous because there were many hazardous materials in the factory. To prevent explosions, the firefighters had to close the valves manually while racing the time. Jin Shi Chuan and his team put on heat-resistant suits and entered the site.

However, it did not work according to plan. Zhang Yang and Liu Xu found an undetected leakage in a tank on the third floor. They managed to close the valves but it did not prevent the fire because the floor was already full of liquid chemicals. Jin Shi Chuan, Liu Xu, and Zhang Yang were trapped. All of them were injured because of an explosion.

Lu Fangqi tried to control the situation and help their comrades. The team managed to save Jin Shi Chuan and Zhang Yang. But Liu Xu sacrifices himself to save Zhang Yang. Because the factory was still prone to explosion, Commander Wen forbid everybody to enter the building. But Jin Shi Chuan with his heat-resistant suit insisted. He wanted to bring Liu Xu out of the building. But before he could step inside, another huge explosion occurred.

The next morning, his consciousness returned and Jin Shi Chuan woke up. The first thing he saw was Xu Lai deeply asleep by his side. Jin Shi Chuan told Xu Lai that she was the one who woke him up because he did not want her to be alone.

Because Jin Shi Chuan disobey his superior in the factory incident, his assignment was canceled. The commander reassigned him to be the squad captain. To lift the mood, Xu Lai took Jin Shi Chuan and Ping’An on a date at the dog training ground. Then they went to eat dinner at Grandpa Jin’s house.

Jin Shi Chuan went to see Huo Yan Zong to give the wedding invitation. Huo Yan Zong asked Jin Shi Chuan to invite someone for him. It was obvious that he wanted to see Yu Shi Shi at the wedding.

On the wedding day, Jin Shi Chuan still had to lead a rescue operation when there was a major collapse at the City Stadium. But it did not hinder them from having a blissful marriage. Jin Shi Chuan and Xu Lai were still ready to fulfill their duty to protect the city while they tried to make babies. 😅

When he mentioned marriage, Zang Qiu said that she did not want to get married. Lu Fangqi was upset because he had been thinking about it and he was ready to build a family with her.

Zang Qiu said because she was married before, she knew the difference between marriage and dating. There were many responsibilities behind a wedding and she did not want to restrain him. No matter what he said, Zang Qiu was adamant about marriage. They parted ways in anger that night.

My Two Cents

I wondered, why did Xu Lai’s wedding dress still in a clean state after she wore it on a live report. And Jin Shi Chuan’s shirt was as crisp as new. What sort of magic did they do? 😝

I love that this story ended happily for everyone. It was too bad that the dog was nowhere to be found at the wedding. I was expecting a pack of dogs at the wedding. It would make a marvelous sight. What do you think, dear readers? Did my idea feasible? 😁
