In this chapter, we learn that the ghost's hand is not the same as the one on the bell, which means that it is not a match for the two of them. The ghost tells the boy that he has found the bell because he was planning to hang it on the neck of his cat. The boy tells the ghost that he wants to know who the hell he is, and the ghost tells him to be quiet if he doesn't want him to tell him the truth. After the boy drinks some wine, the ghost says that he helped the boy in his plan to kill chen pu. He says that if the boy wants to get up and know who he really is, then he should grow stronger and stronger as he goes. The bell pattern is a sign that the bell belongs to a particular ancient family, and that the elder who turned the corpse into a dried-up corpse belongs to that ancient family.
