Ling-ling tries to calm down, but she's not having it. She tells him to apologize to his dad, or else she'll leave him alone. He's fine, she tells him. She's been with the family for twenty years, and she didn't expect anyone to stand up for her. She doesn't want to be separated from her family, so she just wants to be left alone. She wants to know why he lied about the mangoes. She also wants to get rid of the cake, which she says was made by the xias. If she still wants her to come to the family tomorrow, she should just toss the cake out. It's a waste of time, she says.
