- (Lor River military camp)
- Huo Qizhou: Damn you! Why did you let Pink Hair go! Were you afraid that Lor River City wasn't in enough of a mess already?!
- Zhong Lizi: General, refugees from the North keep flowing into Lor River City. The news about the fall of Cloud City has gotten around, so locking them up would not be of any use.
- Huo Qizhou: You failed your duty to watch them, and now you dare contradict me?!
- Zhong Lizi: Punish me as you will, General Huo, but answer me truthfully: don't you feel even slightly remorseful for the fall of Lunar and Cloud City?
- Huo Qizhou: Zhong Lizi, you had better not forget who promoted you to this position!
- Zhong Lizi: I was the best military officer I could be. But you, as the defending general of Lor River City, has committed three significant mistakes along the way!
- Huo Qizhou: Heh, you think you can threaten me? Don't make me laugh, I could make you a penniless scholar with a snap of my fingers.
- Zhong Lizi: First, you burned fields and destroyed roads, a cowardly tactic that hurts both the people and your name. Second, you ignored Cloud City's call for help when it needed it most!
- Zhong Lizi: Thirdly, as the chief commander, you didn't immediately report the situation on the battlefield, missed opportunity of a rescue, and let the northern army entered straight in!
- Zhong Lizi: By the law of Cloud Empire, these three crimes all have dire penalties. The Imperial Judges will grant you a fair trial. Who am I to threaten you?
- Huo Qizhou: Guards! Throw this Zhong Lizi into the cell!
- Soldier: Yes, General! But... Officer Zhong did not seem to be at fault?
- Huo Qizhou: Shut up! He dares speak of me this way. He must have known it would end badly. Lock him up for half a month, and see if he dare be arrogant again!
- This stage, like the other side stories, takes no stamina to run and drops no ingredients.
