The mermaid explains that she froze in the place where she felt her last encounter with the devil. She sees a human hand, but she doesn't know what it is. She thinks that it's because the "night pearl magic circle" was messed up. The mermaid thinks that the "devil" is her son's father. She's worried that the young master will get hurt if she takes the ghost back to his village. She tells the mermaids that she was separated from her son when he was born. She begs them to stay and help her son, but they refuse, saying that they don't have anything to do with the ghost.
