Nightowl explains that he was once a good friend of Luo's, but he has since fallen out of favor with him. He feels sorry for Luo, who is always worried that he will lose his love for nightowl. He asks Luo to kill him for a second time, for he is afraid of what will happen to him if he does not do so. He wonders if it is the post-traumatic stress disorder that caused him to commit suicide. He also wonders if the rumors about him committing suicide were false. He then asks if anyone has tried to frame him for his crimes, and if he has lost his memory. The chapter ends with a discussion between the two men about the future of the game.
