In the end of the story, it is revealed that Fenjin, Chiu's former student, is narrating. So, because Fenjin is an actual character and does not speak using "I" it is in a third person limited point of view.

Fenjin is not narrating at the end. it just switches from being from Mr. Chui's thoughts to Fenjins. it is still third person omniescent
