Hoons visits become frequent and Byung-sik, an old housemaid, reports the affair to Hae-ras mother Mi-hee, who plots to give Hae-ra the control over her husband. Soon Eun-yi miraculously becomes pregnant and wants to keep the baby. This is discovered by the family and shes forced to have an abortion by Mi-hee despite Eun-yis plea to let her keep the baby and leave the house.

Her forced abortion turns Eun-yis mental condition for the worst and she decides to take the matter into her own hands.
