At the auction at Lanling, Fang is ecstatic to find out that he can buy the pill for a million taels. He's even more ecstatic when he realizes that it's the same pill that he bought back from Madame Bovary after the auction. He wants to know why he spent so much money to buy back the pill. Fang explains that his men were poisoned at the last battle, and he wants to get revenge. He tells Fang that he's going to buy some detoxification pills from him, but only if he agrees to pay a price for the pills. If he doesn't pay the price, he won't be able to save his father.
