In Night 4, we hear the conclusion of The Story of The Trader and the Jinn and the beginning of The Story of the Fisherman.
We pick up where we left off in The Third Old Man and the Mule, which tells of a negotiation and diplomacy professor who had just caught his wife cheating on him days before their anniversary. In the conclusion of chapter one, we finish The Story of The Trader and the Jinn in which the bond trader is waiting for the demon to decide his fate, after three old men told tales in an attempt to save his life. We also begin chapter two with The Story of the Fisherman where we learn about Calvin, the rat fights he witnesses and the mysterious barrel he pulls up from the ocean.
