This scene may deceive the casual observer into believing that these two are concentrating on their studies, but In a Good Way junkies know that every nerve on Liu Chuan’s body is attuned to every movement Jia En makes. The need for her drove this man across campus through the rain just so he could breathe the same air. He is that besotted, and I love him for it.
In a Good Way is taking its sweet sweet, and I do mean sweet, time in hooking up our OTP, awesome Liu Chuan and awesome Jia En. We get a lot of pre-kiss interaction which I am a complete sucker for. I am not talking about all the swoon worthy thoughtful discussions they have had teaching each other about life. Not Liu Chuan’s admission of how important Jia En to his happiness, either.
Mostly it is our manly hero reaching out for the girl he is falling in love with since we girls would NEVER initiate skinship, right? (She did dress his wound and blow on it, though, making Liu Chuan jump out of his skin, poor thing, but I suppose it was all innocent on her part.)

To this point, the feelings are as unspoken as they are palpable.
Luckily, we have Momo around as Liu Chuan’s sounding board. From the beginning, Momo heard the interest in his master’s voice where Jia En is concerned.
