The chapter opens with a discussion of the "villain system" on the part of the zhonghengs and their followers in the city of Nanxiang. It is clear that they are using the power of their sects to influence the people of the city. The young man, who has been saved by his father, asks his father to keep an eye on his father's business, but the elder man refuses to help him. He says that the young man is asking for trouble, and that he is not a "chivalrous man" but a "great man" who does what he wants in the martial arts. He tells the young woman that he admires her for her righteousness, and asks her if she has fallen in love with him. She replies that she has, and he asks her to join him and help him in any way he can. He promises to give her the love token of senior zonghaoyang if she will help him, and then he will give it to her as a token of his love. He asks her why they didn't have news about the missing woman, and she says that even if someone got her painting, it wouldn't be considered as a treasure. She says that she will teach the young master a lesson, and the two of them go off to find the men.
