Cui Ya passes out, and she is taken away. Jiu Yun keeps Qin Chuan and wants to check her bag. She says that it’s just two silvers, and he finds out that she didn’t lie.
Qin Chuan asks Jiu Yun to return her silvers to her, but he gives her the tangerine as compensation. Jiu Yun thinks tangerine is sly, and asks Qin Chuan if the tangerine is sweet and sour. She tastes the tangerine and says that it’s sweet. But her expression tells us that it’s sour.
Qin Chuan pours the osmanthus oil on her hair, and Cui Ya thinks Qin Chuan is insane as the masters dislike the smell. Cui Ya heard that Qin Chuan is close to Jiu Yun. Qin Chuan denies and thinks she will be far away from Jiu Yun soon.

Qin Chuan cries to tell people that the hippocampus spirit was killed by the mirror. Jiu Yun shows up and tells people to leave. He points out that Qin Chuan tricked the hippocampus spirit to break the cloud mirror and killed her.
Qin Chuan denies. Jiu Yun says that the vine only tangles the person who is with bad intent, and it contains the fragrance of osmanthus oil. Qin Chuan refuses to confess. Jiu Yun takes out the paper, and points out that Qin Chuan can use paper art. She takes off her clothes, and the papers drop. She asks if she cannot have the hobby of paper folding.
