While Shirley was talking with Jia Xin and Agnes, she received a call from her sister, Lily. Lily called Shirley and asked her if she could get her forgotten textbook in room 9. At first, she denied, but as Lily pleaded her, she hung up her phone and head outside the corridor to room 9.

As Shirley arrived to the room 9, she opened the door and saw a man sitting on the teacher's chair, with chains hidden under his lab coat. With curiosity, she looked closer to the man to find out his identity. But as she stared at his face, the man grabbed her and threw her against the wall. Shirley went terrified and struggle to get out from the room.

However, Shirley couldn't run away from the man as her legs have been chained. The man gagged Shirley's mouth so that she couldn't scream. He then tied her hand and took her to the door.
