Dao Ming Si's Chapter: There are two parts to this chapter. This chapter is arguably more relevant to the Meteor Garden series because it explains several scenes that took place in the first season of Meteor Garden. Dao Ming Si (known as Tsukasa in the Japanese version) is charged with a crime and flees from police. He narrowly escapes the police, jumps off a train and lies unconscious on a beach. A young girl by the name of Xin Xin finds him and Dao Ming Si is temporarily taken in by Ah Yuan, who appears to be Xin Xin's father. Ah Yuan and Xin Xin live in a simple shack by the beach and are not wealthy. There are several twists to this plot, the main one being that Xin Xin does not talk. Apparently Xin Xin is not mute; she was simply traumatized by something that happened to her in the past. Thanks to Xin Xin's advances, Dao Ming Si and Xin Xin quickly bond. However problems arise in the second part of this chapter, when Ah Yuan learns that Dao Ming Si is wanted by the police and Dao Ming Si learns the truth about Ah Yuan & Xin Xin's past.
