The story is told to her as a warning to avoid getting herself in such circumstances. Mentioning the name of that aunt is a taboo so she decides to create a memoir in her honor.

She remembers that her aunt had to give birth in a pigsty, which must have been a horrible experience and sees her ghost walking around with no one to offer it anything as per the Chinese customs.
