The next morning, the Governess asks the President to tell her where Ching-ying is. The Governess tells him that she has led him to the place where she dropped her phone. She asks him to go there and find out who the owner of the phone is. She wants him to give her a "life for a life" . The President refuses to go, saying that he is afraid of the people around him. He tells her that he will go there on his own, and that Ching-ing will be safe there. He asks her to call Ching-ting by her first name, and she agrees to do so.
