The next morning, Caius learns that Lady Bai has left him with her in a wish to be rid of her. She still wants him to burn her body down in the ancestor tribute festival, but Caius says that the body would prefer to sacrifice herself than live in the hell. He tells Caius that his family name is actually bai, which means "poor thing." Caius tells him that he can sleep with him because his soul comes while his body still lives in the world. Caius explains that his soul belongs to the world, while Caius belongs to his body. He says that Caius can feed him if he wants, but that his body fluid will only give him food if he puts it in his mouth.
