The new lakorn will premiere April 13, so that’s the time we have left with this one. The music was so loud at some points in this episode that I thought what’s the director’s job exactly?
Zhong Xin asks Yuthapong if he sent RueTaiNak here because she’s Ngao’s daughter.
YP: I didn’t think that way at first. It’s the circumstances led me to it. As Khun Lin already knew, my business went bankrupt with no money to pay back your loan.
LLS: You are the worst kind. If RueTaiNak was not clever enough, and couldn’t survive while she’s here, who would take responsibility for her life?
YP: It’s because I knew that she could survive, that’s why I dared send her here. For 17 years that I raised her, I didn’t raise her like a normal kid. The more I knew she’s gifted, her cleverness, the more I sharpened her gift and her cleverness in order for her to, one day, come stand in the same spot as her father.
LLS: I think you were crazy! She’s just a girl. You shouldn’t be cruel to her this way.
YP: Khun Lin, I just didn’t want to waste the gift she had, and my guess is, while she stayed with you here, she must have already brought you some benefits.
LLS: All right. Now I understand. The conclusion is, your conditions that you faxed me, I accept it.
YP: What? I don’t understand.
LLS: RueTaiNak will stay here instead of Nantaka.
YP: What do you mean?
ZX: Khun Lin is releasing you from all debt, in exchange for RueTaiNak.
LLS: All right, please excuse me.
Lan Se leaves the room.
YP: Excuse me, Khun Zhong Xin, Khun Lin likes Nak, doesn’t he?
ZX: And what do you think?
YP: I don’t know. I didn’t think about this kind of thing at all. It’s because Nak is not the kind of girl men would like.
ZX: Even though she’s not really your daughter, you shouldn’t look down on her.
YP: No, that’s not it. Even though Nak is not my real daughter, I loved her no less than Nantaka.
ZX: What are you smiling about?
YP: I can understand now why Khun Lin is taking care of me and Nantaka much better than his other debtors. But, does Nak know how Khun Lin think of her?
ZX: About that, you will have to ask your daughter, because I wouldn’t know. Please. (He gestures him to leave.)
Nak comes to see Nantaka.
Nak: Dad went to see Lin Lan Se?
Nantaka: Yes. Khun Lin called for a talk with him. It must be about me. Nak, I’m sorry again that you lived in trouble in my place. It’s because of dad’s doing really.
Nak: Pee Nan, don’t blame dad. I think he was right to send me. If it were you, you would become Lin Lan Se’s mistress already.
Nantaka: But if I knew that dad’s creditor is Khun Lin Lan Se, I wouldn’t let dad send you here. Don’t worry, I will pay back Khun Lin Lan Se’s loan for dad myself.
Nak: Are you willing to become Lin Lan Se’s mistress?
Nantaka: Because that’s the only way to help you and dad, so that you can be free and don’t have to work so hard anymore.
Nak: I’m all right. I can do it. Do you know I came here for 3 months, I already paid back the loan for 2 millions?
Nantaka: Of course, I know, that my sister is talented and clever, but this matter is not about you. Didn’t you forget that Khun Lin wanted me and not you?
Nantaka: You’ve been doing a lot for me and dad already. I shouldn’t take advantage of you anymore.
Nak: But I think you can’t live with Lin Lan Se. Do you know what kind of things you will be facing with when becoming a mafia’s woman, especially, Lin Lan Se’s? He never loves anyone, and never has a heart for anyone.
Nantaka: How do you know that he doesn’t have a heart? He may have a heart for me.
Nak: Pee Nan!
Nantaka: All right, stop talking already. Just know that, now I like him, and I think he may like me too.
Yuthapong comes back.
Nantaka: Dad! You came back! Dad, what did Khun Lin Lan Se say?
YP: Nothing much. Nan, you go take a both and get dressed. Khun Lin Lan Se will send a car to take you to join the meal.
Nantaka: Is that true, dad? (To Nak) Nak, I told you. Khun Lin may like me too.
Nan walks to her room.
Nak: What, dad?
YP: Are you happy here?
Nak: It’s not bad, no at first, after a while, it’s ok. You know me,dad. I’m like a chameleon changes its color to fit every kind of situations.
YP: Nak, I’m so proud of you.
Nak: Are you giving me a test again? The last time, you left me with those mafia and acted sentimental like this once already.
YP: I’m not giving you any test. I actually am proud of you. Come here, let me hug you.
Nak: Are you sure there’s no trick?
YP: No trick. Come here.
He hugs her.
YP: Nak, I love you, my daughter.
That night, Nak thinks of when Ta Hai said, “Do you know how painful it is to be a mafia’s woman?” and when Nantaka said, “Just know that, now I like him, and I think he may like me too.”
Nak waits for Lan Se to drive for him. In the car, she keeps looking at him from the rear mirror so often that he takes out his glasses to look at her but doesn’t say anything. They arrive at the school. He gets out of the car and walks into the building.
Nak: Wait, Lin Lan Se!
LLS: What is it?
Nak: I have something to talk to you.
LLS: Come talk at the office.
He sits down in his office.
LLS: Say it. What is it?
Nak: I want to know…you really like Pee Nan, don’t you?
LLS: Why do you ask?
Nak: I want to know, after you met Pee Nan, the real one, how do you feel for her? Do you still like her?
LLS: I told you already.
Nak: You told me? When?
LLS: You were never interested, never paid attention to what I said, weren’t you ?
Nak: No, I paid attention every time you said. But for the matter about Pee Nan, sometimes you talked like you were interested, sometimes weren’t so I really don’t know which one is true, which one is false. Can you tell me again if you still like Pee Nan or not?
LLS: And if I say, I’m interested?
Nak: If you truly like Pee Nan, I won’t put a stop to it, but you must truly love her and don’t make her sad like your other women.
LLS: What about you?
LLS: Won’t you feel anything if I like your sister?
Nak: Me? I will probably be happy that Pee Nan’s wish come true, because she said she liked you too. (He sighs.) Pee Nan really likes you. She said she liked you and was willing to be your woman.
He sighs again and turns his back to her.
LLS: All right, is this only what you wanted to ask me?
Nak: Yes. I only wanted to know that. Thank you so much.
She bows and walks to the door.
Nak: You really like Pee Nan, don’t you?
Nak: Okay, I got the answer. I’ll go to class now.
She looks at him from outside but he turns his back to her.
LLS: That mad girl, can’t she know how I think (of her)?
Nak walks in school alone thinking of Nantaka saying she likes him and thinks he may like her too, and Lan Se saying what if, I say, I like her.
Nak: Should I be happy or sad that they like each other?
She lets out a huge sigh.
Mei Jing comes to see Lan Se. Sun Li tells her that Lan Se is here, he just came back.
MJ: Is there anyone with him?
Sun Li: No one.
MJ: There’s no Thai girl with him?
Sun Li: I didn’t see.
Mei Jing thanks her and walks into Lan Se’s suite.
She sees his phone lying on the desk and thinks of how he loved to look at it. She picks up his phone to take a look.
Mei Jing sees many pictures of Nak on his phone. She recalls how he would smile looking at them, how he called her on New Year’s Eve and asked about Nak, how he let Nak join the dining table with him, and how he scolded her for not be there when he got back.
Lan Se sees Mei Jin is looking at his phone.
LLS: Who gave you the permission to pick up my personal thing?
She turns to him.
MJ: If I didn’t pick it up, how would I know that you had someone hiding?
She shows him Nak’s picture on his phone. He snatches his phone back.
MJ: Why haven’t I noticed when you displayed it so clearly?
LLS: What business did you come here for?
MJ: When did it happen? Since when you loved RueTaiNak? That’s why you let her work here and be close to you, let her join the dining table, even called to look for her on New Year’s Eve holiday. I’m so stupid, why didn’t I think of it, a person like Lin Lan Se, who never paid attention to or be worried of anyone, was so mad to come back and not find that girl there. Actually, I came today because I wanted to see Nantaka’s face, the face of the opponent, but when it’s like this, tell you the truth, I don’t know how to react. If it’s Nantaka, I would think you fall for her beauty, her innocent, but when it’s RueTaiNak, I…I still don’t know how I should feel. That girl can’t be compared…
LLS: I ‘m not interested what you would think.
MJ: I know you won’t be interested because, all this time, you never paid attention to me. Does she know how you think of her?
LLS: It’s none of your business.
MJ: That means you haven’t told her yet, or, you don’t have enough courage?
LLS: If you don’t have any business here, I think you should leave!
MJ: If I didn’t hear it with my own ears, didn’t see it with my own eyes, I wouldn’t believe a person like Lin Lan Se, didn’t have the courage to confess his love to a woman, especially, to the girl who…
LLS: I told you to leave.
MJ: I know that you’re scared. You’re scared that if you confess your love to her, RueTaiNak may reject you and run away from your life. It serves you right! Now you will know how it feels, to fall for someone…and don’t worry, I’m still for hire to be your partner, just like before.
She leaves him looking very sad. He recalls her words, “I know that you’re scared. You’re scared that if you confess your love to her, RueTaiNak may reject you and run away from your life.”
Mei Jing is sitting in a bar by herself. She recollects her moments with Nak, couldn’t believe still. Zhong Xin comes to sit with her.
ZX: You came to see Khun Lin today, what happened?
MJ: What happened?
ZX: Sun Li said since you left, Khun Lin cancelled the meeting and wouldn’t receive any guest. Did you fight about anything?
MJ: You knew, didn’t you, that Lin Lan Se is secretly in love with RueTaiNak?
Zhong Xin is startled.
ZX: Who told you that?
MJ: Don’t make your face like you don’t know. I know all of the truth already. I couldn’t believe a person like me, Fang Mei Jing, has to accept defeat from a girl who couldn’t be compared to me in every way. Why so quiet?
ZX: I have nothing to say on this matter. I came to ask what you fought with Khun Lin. I know you are feeling sad to learn the truth, but I think you…
MJ: Wrong, I’m not feeling sad. I’ve passed that point a long time ago, because whether Lin Lan Se loves RueTaiNak or not, he will never love me. I’m just stunned, confused about it. If you are not in a hurry to go back, can you sit and drink with me? (He’s reluctant.) Don’t tell me you have children and wife waiting at home.
MJ: If you go home late, your mother won’t mind, right?
She smiles a little.
MJ: Cheers to Lin Lan Se’s love.
She drink the wine sadly. He clings the glass with her.
Lan Se is lying down on a sofa thinking of….
-Nak says don’t do anything to my sister. He says I won’t…but you must stay here. Nak says I won’t go anywhere….
-Mei Jing says you’re scared that if you confess…..RueTaiNak may reject you and run away from your life.
-Magaret says this place is not my home. I won’t endure staying here anymore. Lan Se’s father won’t let her leave.
-Magaret puts a gun to her head. Lan Se, as a boy, hears a gunshot. Oh, no…
At school, Danny is dancing again. He gets a call from his dad, Carlos.
D: Yes, dad.
Carlos: I heard Lin Lan Se found out already who’s behind the order to kill him?
D: Yes, his name is Lang Yong Wen, adopted son of San Gui. But now, we didn’t get him yet, but why did you ask about this, dad?
Carlos: Patrick is returning there.
D: What are you talking about? I don’t understand.
Carlos: Someone sent the information to Patrick, that RueTaiNak was the one delivered the arms at..(name of place)..
D: Are you serious?
Carlos: Of course, and it seems the information says that she, is Cubic.
D: You have the feeling that Lang Yong Wen was the one sending the information to Patric, haven’t you, dad?
Carlos: My guess is, it’s him, because if that guy wants to bring down Lin Lan Se, he will do everything to get Lin Lan Se into trouble, and if he succeeds, I will get caught up in it too.
D: And what will you do, dad?
Carlos: Tell RueTaiNak to go back to Thailand.
Danny leaves in a hurry.
Lan Se is in his office.
ZX: Khun Lin, you sent for me, what is it?
LLS: I want Yuthapong and Nantaka to stay here permanently. You’ve already noticed that RueTaiNak loves her father and sister very much. If they stay here, she won’t go anywhere. You must know already how I think of her. (Stand up) She’s not like anyone I know. She made me be in a bad mood. She made me worry. She made me feel longing. Every time I’m with her, the whole world become mine. I want her to stay here with me forever.
ZX: I understand, and I’m glad that Khun Lin is feeling happy. I’ll take care of everything for you.
LLS: Thank you very much, Zhong Xin.
Danny gets pass the security guards.
ZX: Wait, what is it?
D: I have an important thing to talk to Lin Lan Se!
LLS: Have what, Danny?
D: Of course, I do have!
At the Interpol Office (International Police), Patric is looking at Nak’s information, and her picture with the word ‘Cubic’ on it. He thinks of Nak in the ambulance that time.
Patric: This time I won’t let you slip out of my hand again, girl.
Lan Se sits down on a sofa.
LLS: No, RueTaiNak will not go anywhere.
D: You mean you will allow Patrick to arrest her?
LLS: I will take care of it.
D: What will you do? I know that you are a mafia who has a lot of influence, and you can do anything here, but don’t forget that Patric is an international police, and the influence that you have, won’t get to him, and if you want to kill him, I guarantee, the whole Interpol will come digging it out, and if you wait until that time, you, ChaiHong Group, and my father, we will be doomed. Do you understand me?
LLS: I told you already I would take care of it! You can leave now.
D: Lin Lan Se, this is not the time to stay calm. That guy, Patric, is coming here right now, and if he gets a whole of Nak…
ZX: Danny! You can leave now. Like Khun Lin said, we will take care of it.
D: All right, if you don’t send RueTaiNak back, I will!
Danny walks out.
ZX: What Danny said is right. If you don’t send RueTaiNak back, Patric will find her anyway and will dig out our contract with Carlos, at that time, we all will be in trouble.
LLS: There must be another way! I will delete all of her records here and find a place for her to hide. At least, she will still be within our sight, Zhong Xin.
ZX: But I’m not sure she will be safe. These days, I believe there’s still Yong Wen’s men left blending with ours. If she stays within your sight at all time, that could mean we leave the door open and let our enemies know her whereabouts.
LLS: I will protect her no matter what.
ZX: I understand how you feel but the bet this time, is ChaiHong Group.
Lan Se sits down and thinks hard about it.
LLS: All right, I will let RueTaiNak go back to Thailand.
Zhong Xin leaves the room.
Nak: You want me to go back to Thailand?
D: That’s right. You can’t stay here anymore. You must leave before Patric arrives.
Nak: No, I won’t go anywhere.
D: RueTaiNak, listen to me. This matter is not like any incident in the past. This time, you are Patric’s target, and if he gets to you, you won’t get out of it. Do you understand me?
Nak: No, no matter what happens, I won’t go back to Thailand!
Nak: I owned Lin Lan Se a debt, and I promised him that I wouldn’t go anywhere. I will stay here to pay back his loan.
D: Nak, but this is…
Nak: No, I’m one of Lin Lan Se’s people. I won’t go anywhere because Lin Lan Se didn’t give me the order!
Lan Se walks in.
LLS: You must go back to Thailand tomorrow. Zhong Xin will arrange everything for you.
Lan Se turns to leave.
Nak: What about my father and Pee Nan?
ZX: They both must stay here. We will delete all of your records, and will create your sister’s ID in place of yours using the condition in the contract, that your father agreed to send Nantaka here as the loan payment.
Nak: As if, I never exist here?
LLS: That’s right. You never exist here. The person who came here was Nantaka, not you.
Nak: When I go back to Thailand, can I contact Zhong Xin, Danny, my dad, or Pee Nan?
Nak: And you? What about you? Can I contact you?
Nak: I’ll be left on an island? (live on her own)
ZX: For the security of ChaiHong Group, no one will know your whereabouts. We won’t follow you, won’t make any contact with you.
Nak: And when will this end? (No one answers.) That means, we won’t see each other again, will we?
Lan Se slowly nods to her. Nak looks at Danny but he turns away.
Nak: All right. I will follow your order.
Zhong Xin leaves the room. Nak just cries. Danny looks at her but turns to leave too. She looks at Lan Se. He also turns to leave. She runs to him and grabs his arm.
Nak: I…I will try to do my best of everything.
He pulls her into his arms.
LLS: Just tell me that you don’t want to go, I will stop everything.
Nak: No. I’m one of your people. I will follow your order.
He hugs her and thinks of when he told Zhong Xin that he would protect her no matter what and when Zhong Xin said the bet this time, was ChaiHong Group. He keeps hugging her.
That night, Lan Se think of when Nak said she would follow his order. Nak also thinks of her time here with Lan Se.
Nak looks at her school uniform and thinks of when Lan Se tied her neck tie for her.
LLS: I really have to let her go, do I?
Nak looks up at the building where Lan Se is, and Lan Se looks down at the construction site where Nak is.
D: You should know already that everything will end this way. I shouldn’t have let you deliver those arms.
Nak: It’s not you, it’s my own decision, totally my fault.
D: Nak, I seriously don’t want you to confront that fate alone all by yourself.
Nak: You don’t have to worry about me. When I first came here, I didn’t know anyone but I’ve survived, haven’t I? Now I’m going back to Thailand, my homeland, I can simply walk with my eyes close.
D: I will miss you.
Nak: But if I don’t miss you, you won’t be mad, right?
D: Why? You won’t miss me because, you have someone else to think of?
Nak: I will have to find a place to live and to hide so I probably won’t have time to miss you.
Nak stops walking.
Nak: All right, send me off here.
He reaches out for a handshake.
D: All right, I hope we will get to see each other again.
She puts her hand in his.
Nak: I hope so too.
D: Good luck, friend.
They hug each other. It’s cool for a teenager good-bye.
D: I’ll leave first. See you.
He turns to her.
D: Good luck, friend. (Cool, from the future arms dealer ^^)
D: Nak, I will probably miss you.
They wave to each other.
Nak leaves the message on Lan Se’s answering machine.
“Please leave your message after the beep:
It’s me, Lan Se, sorry to call you at your private room. I want to thank you for everything for the past 3 months, for the things you taught me, my father’s debt, your saving my life, and your patient to put up with my stupid behaviors sometimes or..many times, and even…something…that I’m too stupid to understand or uncertain about it. As of now, I’m still uncertain what it is. I want to say I will try to do my best of everything. Seriously, I will. Please take care of my father and Pee Nan. I’ll have to go…I won’t bid you good-bye.“
Nak makes up her mind and walks straight ahead.
Lan Se listens to her message and starts deleting her pictures on his phone. He listens to it again and again *Sniff*
Zhong Xin is lecturing Nantaka on her duty.
ZX: From now on, you will accompany Khun Lin to social events as Lin Lan Se’s woman.
Nan: Certainly, there’s no problem, and what do I need to do?
ZX: Be beautiful, be dignified. When you are walking with Khun Lin, do not ask or talk too much if he doesn’t ask you.
Nan: I can do it. Do I need to move in with him at ChaiHong building?
ZX: No need.
Nan: So Khun Lin will come to me?
Nan: Khun Zhong Xin, I don’t understand why….
ZX: Khun Lin wants you as his accompany in certain events only. Tomorrow, I will send a car to pick you up to accompany Khun Lin to the function. About your clothes, make-up, and hair, someone will come taking care of it.
Zhong Xin leaves.
Nan: Dad, I don’t understand. He wanted me only to accompany him to the events, just that?
YP: Lin Lan Se wants to delete all Nak’s records and create your ID to tell everyone that, for these past 3 months, you were the one who came here, not Nak.
Nan: What’s for, dad?
YP: I don’t know the reason for sure. All I know is now ChaiHong Group is having a problem about Nak.
Patric and his eh…lackey? -Seriously, he looks like a villain more than a cop.
They are walking into ChaiHong building.
Patric: I’m Pol.Capt. Patric Button from Interpol (show his badge). I wish to see Khun Lin Lan Se.
Sun Li: Just a moment. (To the intercom) Khun Lin sir, Capt. Patric Button is here to see you. (Lan Se says let him in.) (To Patric) Please go in. Ling, take Capt. to the president.
LLS: Hi, Captain.
P: Hi, Khun Lin Lan Se.
LLS: Please. (gesture him to take a seat)
Patric looks at Zhong Xin who’s causally reading a magazine.
LLS: Khun Fei Zhong Xin, my adviser.
P: Hi! (to Zhong Xin)
P: You must know already the reason I came.
LLS: Obviously, I’m curious too.
P: I have someone’s picture and want you to look. (Show Nak’s picture with the word ‘Cubic’ on it) Her name is RueTaiNak. She’s Thai. I hope you recognize her.
LLS: Yes, I do. She’s the youngest daughter of Mr. Yuthapong, my debtor.
P: I happen to know also that, she came to live here three months ago…as your debtor. She worked for you to pay back the debt.
LLS: You’ve got the wrong information because the person who came here was her elder sister, her name is Nantaka. (show him Nan’s picture)
Patric: What about these documents if she never came here, why these documents?
LLS: How would I know? What about you? Are you sure those few papers you acquired is the truth?
P: I believe in my own instincts.
ZX: That’s why three months ago, you had let Carlos transfer those arms passing through the security checkpoint successfully.
P: That’s right, because I didn’t believe myself at that time so I failed, but this time, I guarantee you, I won’t fail for the second time.
LLS: Then? What do you want from me?
P: Give me RueTaiNak.
LLS: I told you, she never came here.
P: I know that this girl was the one negotiated with Carlos Tapeir to sign the partner contract with ChaiHong Group, even helped that guy deliver those arms!
LLS: Is that so? What a pity, we should have kept her to work for us, Zhong Xin.
ZX: True, which means she must be very good to fool the cop and get away with it.
P: You two, don’t quibble over it. Give me the girl!
LLS: If you want her, get out there and look for yourself.
ZX: It won’t be that hard for you to find her records here.
P: I know you two must have already deleted her records. You have so much influence here, you can easily delete anyone’s records.
LLS: It’s good that you know so you will behave accordingly, and won’t barge into the wrong place and put yourself in trouble.
Patric is about to leave.
LLS: Wait, Captain.
LLS: Take back your belongings.
Patric picks up Nak’s documents on the sofa.
P: It’s all right. I made copies. (He throws in on Lan Se’s lap.)
LLS: But I don’t want other people’s things.
Lan Se throws the documents on the floor. Patric picks it up and leaves.
Patric: I think that girl, RueTaiNak, must be some kind of important to Lin Lan Se for sure!
Lackey: What are you saying, Capt.?
P: If that girl could bring trouble to Lin Lan Se, he should just kill her, not protect her like this.
Lackey: But the person, who sent this information to us, said this girl was Lin Lan Se’s Ngao with the codename of Cubic.
P: But from what I know, the person who could become Ngao of ChaiHong Group, must be so skillful and clever that no one could reach her or know her real identity. If RueTaiNak is really Cubic, she shouldn’t let her own information be leaked out.
Lackey: But she’s just 17, I think, she could be a novice or inexperienced.
P: Could be.
Lackey: What shall we do when Lin Lan Se is overly protective of her like this?
P: No matter what, we must find her, because she’s the only one who could make us capture Carlos.
Back to Amphawa, Samut Songkhram province, Thailand (famous for the floating market and looking at fireflies at night).
The man is introducing his resort. Nak gets into her room. She lives alone on her own.
Nantaka starts her duty as Lan Se’s woman. They get in the car together.
Nan: The weather today is quite chilly, isn’t it?
Nan: What kind of event are we going?
LLS: Anything you want to know, ask Zhong Xin. Did RueTaiNak contact you?
Nan: No, she didn’t at all.
Nantaka is quite surprised to hear him ask about Nak.
Nak sits alone to do some thinking.
Flashback, Nak comes to see Lan Se at his building in a rainy night.
Nak: I came to see Khun Lin.
Guard: No, you can’t go up there. Khun Lin is in the meeting.
Nak: But I came to return the document file to him. Could you please tell him, that RueTaiNak came to see him?
Guard: Still, you must wait.
Nak waits in front of the building while it’s pouring rain outside. Lan Se walks by the sliding doors and sees her.
LLS: RueTaiNak. (She’s delighted to see him.) Why are you standing here?
Nak: I came to give the file to you. I haven’t returned it to you yet.
He grabs her wrist and leads her into the building.
Present, Nak thinks back to that day.
He dries her hair with a towel. He’s wearing the wristwatch she gave him.
Nak: Thank you.
Nak: Thank you for drying my hair for me and the watch. I didn’t think you would wear it. Do you know, when you smile, you are so handsome.
He smiles back then turns sad. He throws the towel away. Rawr!
Lan Se says, “Starting tomorrow, I don’t know if we will see each other again, but I want you to know that, you will stay in my memory…forever.”
He kisses her forehead.
LLS: All of your debt is now voided. When you arrive in Thailand, someone will give you ten millions (HKD).
He kisses her forehead again and hugs her.
Present, Nak thinks about it.
Nak: What was that? It can’t be for a person like him to like (have a crush on) me.
Aww…I missed ya, Yong Wen.
Yong Wen looks at Lan Se and Nak’s pictures.
YW: Cubic? You are cubic?
He recalls how Lan Se protected Nak from the bullets.
YW: It’s unbelievable that the weakness of a man like Lin Lan Se, is just a girl.
Yong Wen: Lin Lan Se, I will start killing your women one by one.
Let me tell you that, in the novel, Lan Se really meant to let her go forever without trace. He couldn’t contact her or try to know where she was, because if he knew, his enemy would know too as he knew there were spies among his men. Yong Wen took out almost half (I heard) of Lan Se’s men with him when he left the group.
Lan Se also let Nak know that she would be on her own to protect herself and escape from danger. He had it in her that she would survive but he wouldn’t do anything to help. He gave her a large amount of money for her life securities, that’s all he could do for her.
After Nak left, Lan Se turned into a living zombie. He had to get rid of everything he had of her including the wristwatch, except one thing, no one knew that there’s her voice in his answering machine. He would listen to it again and again when he’s alone. He didn’t think he would see her again.
After Nak knew she had to go back to Thailand and wouldn’t see Lan Se again, she was busy trying to figure out how to solve this problem writing some layout. The night before she would leave, she remembered that she didn’t go to see Lan Se at all so she rode a bicycle to see him in the rain, which is the scene where Lan Se kisses her forehead (he kissed her lips for the first time here in the novel, that’s the reason that after that, Nak tried to figure out her feeling for him).
