The New Year's Clean-Up / Firefly Nights
The New Year's Clean Up

Chinese New Year is nearing. The foolish magistrate orders for a palace clean up, and they spot some rat footprints. The magistrate, however, is somewhat terrified of rats, and goes all out to exterminate it. Sagwa finds the rat, and tries to chase it out. The rat cons Sagwa into a deal. Everything's fine at first, but when the magistrate's favourite special dumplings were damaged by the rat, Sagwa feels remorseful, and finally chases the rat off. She then has a talk with Baba Miao, and they head back to the dining hall. The end.
