Outside the mansion, Ling tells the Host that he's so happy that he wishes he could leave the mansion and live a quiet life with the girl he loves. He says that since she wants to leave, he'll fulfill her wishes. The Host says that he can leave if he wants to, but he can't wear his pouch back because it's not good enough. Ling says that the pouch is not enough for her, and that she should wear someone else's pouch. Ling is shocked that his love for the girl has dropped from 90 percent to 60 percent. He thinks that he wasted an opportunity to increase her favorability in him. Ling asks the Host if he loves anyone else, and the Host replies that he doesn't love anyone else. Ling explains that he needs to marry the girl because she saved his life, and according to the rules of the Ming dynasty, he can use his identity as a spy to marry her, even though he'd like to remain firm in speech and soft-hearted. Ling wants to make sure that the girl will remember everything that happened that night. He wants her to remember that he kissed her, because that's the only thing that she wants him to remember. Ling thinks that this will make her more attractive to him, and he wants the Host to agree to marry him.
