In this chapter, the doctor tells the patient that if he were to die, he would die with the patient. The patient says that he would marry the doctor and have a child together, but that there is no such thing as a "third result" for him. He tells the doctor that he is waiting for the wedding to be over so that he can rest. The doctor tells him that he has to keep his hand on the patient's chest, because there are still people watching them. When the doctor asks if he thinks it is true, the patient replies that it is, but only according to the character and attitude of the woman. He says that the loss of Shaunol's hand was his fault because he was busy in Shanghai before, and now he can only accept it to solve the problem. He thinks that the woman's behavior is like mother and daughter, and that she has not grown up mentally yet. He asks if the patient ate well in quarantine, and the doctor replies that he did not. The government has said that they will take the patient away for research, and he asks what they are going to do with him. They say that they want to kill him directly, but they will let him go once the experiment has been successful. He wants to know if it is better for the patient to die or become a guinea pig, because the patient will not feel pain after killing him for four months. The guinea pig will be able to tell others that he died naturally, whereas the patient who is killed immediately will be told that he was killed by the government. If the guinea pig proves to be a good patient, the government will let the patient go. He will tie the patient up and watch him suffer for the rest of his life.
