This chapter discusses the author's completion of her studies at the Subsidiary High School of the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Arts in China. Before she returned to Hangzhou, Wei Bo instructed her not to tell her parents about what happened between them and explained that other people would despise her if they learned about it. This chapter relates her acceptance at the Oil Painting Department of the Zhejiang Fine Arts Academy and her relationship with a teacher named Guo Wenfeng, who was already married. It also describes the lingering memory of what Wei Bo did that always made her felt an inexpressible sense of anger and loss.
