This chapter's epigraph comes from the opening lines of Act IV, Scene 1 . It's a quote from a famous line of Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. It says, "A perfect man always leads you to hell" . In other words, if you're a perfect man, you'll always lead people to hell. This is the first time we see Cai Ming-ling's reaction to the news of the approaching beast. He's all, "damn it" , and he's about to run away when he hears the roar of the beast's attack. He runs out of the room, and the beast runs right in front of him. Cai is all "what the heck are you doing?" . He doesn't know what to do, so he runs off to get help. The beast runs off, and Cai runs after him. He can't believe that Cai is so mean to him. She's so ungrateful, he says, that he came to help her. He asks her why she's being so mean, and she says that she was afraid something bad would happen to her, so she came to find help. He tells her that he'll tell Cai that Cai's taking advantage of her disciple.
