In this chapter, the young narrator explains that he feels guilty for causing his sister to reveal the ghost's face. He also feels guilty because he was desperate to find out the whereabouts of his father. He is grateful to his sister for her help in finding him. He asks her why she didn't tell him sooner, and she says that she had the chance. He tells her that she can always tell him once they return to the Ming family house. He says that he has never seen his brother act so stupidly since childhood. He adds that the biggest benefit he gained when he returned to Ming's house was probably gaining a "good brother" . The young narrator then asks if he is jealous of his sister and brother, and he replies that he is a bit jealous, but that he treats them all equally.
