Win Jeh can only apologize. Jau Siu Leung then gets angry and demands to know what Yat Gor has that he doesn’t. She tells him that she tried hard to be his wife but she just couldn’t. She thought there was no turning back, but ever since she got news that he got shot, she realized she would never be able to let him go.

In a last ditch effort, Jau Siu Leung asks what will happen if she doesn’t have his child. Win Jeh tells him she’ll give birth to the baby but she can’t continue being his wife. They were wrong to start with and she doesn’t want to continue going down this wrong path. She goes to take the pregnancy test.

When she comes out, she apologizes and shows him the test. Then she leaves it and the necklace he gave her earlier on the table and tells him she’s leaving. Jau Siu Leung grabs her crying and begging her not to leave. She apologizes and leaves.

Commentary;

Knew this was gonna happen. Really, what did Jau Siu Leung expect? When he got with Win Jeh he knew she was still hung up on Yat Gor and the signs were all still there after they got married too. This marriage was fucked up from the beginning. I kind of feel bad for him but at the same time, he had to have seen this coming!
