Phubodee tries to separate Pawat and Oranee with money. It backfires on him because Ornicha felt insulted and violently turned down the offer. Oranee informs Pawat about the money offer and in turn Pawat becomes more estrange from his brother Phubodee and mother Sumon.

While Pawat is away in America, Phubodee works with Nina (May Pitchanart Sakakorn), the daughter of Sumon’s best friend, to make it seem like Nina and Pawat are dating. The news of Nina and Pawat dating makes Oranee feel a little anxious; however, she could not dwell on it for too long because her father Uthai (Santisuk Promsiri) suffered a stroke and they did not have money to pay for his hospital bills. Phubodee heard about this and took the opportunity to give Oranee some money with a price. To receive the money, she must break up with Pawat. With no other choices, Oranee takes the money to pay for her father’s hospital bill and surgery.
Gleefully, Phubodee lies to his younger brother that Oranee has agreed to his money offer and Oranee is just another woman concern only with money.
