In the hall where the party is to be held, the fox tries to get the attention of the other guests. He wants to know how close they've come to meeting him. He's also worried that they're going to kill him. The fox tells him that he's the last black fox, and that it would be a pity for him to be killed. He also tells the audience that the fox is just a "mere human," and that he doesn't care what people think of him.
