This chapter opens with a soliloquy by Duan. Duan tells Duan that he has landed, and Duan asks him if he will continue to hold him. He says that he is not dead, but that his family has been ruined by the han family, and that he does not hate Duan's father, whom Duan does not believe to be yunfu. He asks Duan if he takes his health seriously, and she says that she has sent a few memorials to Duan, hoping that they will get along better with each other, but she worries that Duan will not treat her well because of Duan and zhibai. She tells him that she is guilty of lying to him and that she will never forgive him. She says that zhu has gone to the doctor and that yue is dying of a fever. She asks him why he did not take off his robe, and he says that it is because zhu is jealous. She then asks him what agreement he has to make with her, since she does not listen to him.
