Nightowl tells the girl that he's going to send her to the bottom of the totem pole, where she'll be allowed to do whatever she wants. Nightowl says that his company is going to go bankrupt, so he won't have to worry about her anymore. He tells her to go ahead and sign the contract with him. He's not going to kill the girl, he says, but he can't hurt the one behind her. He says that if he signs the contract now, he'll run away, but now that nightowl has taken him hostage, it's more difficult for him to do so in the future. He wants to know how he managed to get the Shuoyang theater as his base. He doesn't want to go anywhere, except for a fatuous leader who would use the place as his "base." Nightowl explains that they did everything legally in the state of wanxi, but that they're going to have to pay back their kindness. They'll provide him with a salary, which is a little higher than his salary as an idol, but not as high as a list idol's salary. He asks why there's a weird-looking contract here, and she explains that she's signed a contract with nightowl as an artist. She says that since this dangerous entertainment industry may harm their lives, they have to sign a disclaimer saying that death has no bearing on the death of the other party. She also says that the contract is between the two of them, and that they shouldn't accuse each other of anything. She asks if the girl is looking for a way to kill him.
