Summary Edit

The chapter opens up on May 14, 2014 at 04:42:03 in Singapore. Jingjing is at a local park, unable to sleep. He is eating some food and resting by a spice garden. He has been searching for Tian Li's cat ever since it disappeared but has had no luck. He decides to start walking along the path of a greenway, but while doing so Jingjing spots a snake crawling over his shoe. He panics then kicks the snake into the nearby grass.

Jingjing spends the next few hours in the park before returning to his apartment complex. Tian Li is still feeling depressed and sick. He attempts to cheer her up but she falls asleep again. She has been doing nothing but sleeping and eating ever since the cat disappeared. Jingjing decides to search around the apartment for some money. When he is unable to find any, he begins to worry about how poor they are becoming. He starts trying to think of ways to make money. At the same time, he continues his search for the cat. The stress makes him start feeling the need to smoke.

While at an electronics store, Jingjing spots Zhong on a TV screen. He remembers when he was at Zhong's palace and would like to be able to see all of his friends again. He also thinks about Raeden and how he was put into a coma from smoking some really heavy drug from a balloon. On his way out of the store, he decides to draw a monster card from his deck. The card he draws is Tanngrisner. He puts the card back and begins to realize how much he misses the cat. He realizes that things were a lot better when it was still around.

When Jingjing returns to the apartment again, he finds that the last of the food has been eaten. Tian Li appears to be holding lottery tickets. She asks Jingjing to pick a number. Jingjing picks, and when the numbers are revealed, it seems they have won some money.

The chapter ends on May 14, 2014 at 19:17:09.
