Tomomi has done a good deed for Rika by getting her ring back from thieves. Ryuu decides to cut her a little bit of slack by being more tolerant with her. 8 years later as they get older. Tomomi continues to hang around with Ryuu. Has Ryuu decided to be her friend yet.
Tomomi: Hi Ryuu!
Ryuu: (annoyed) What Tomo?
Tomomi: Just wanna spend some time with you.
Ryuu: (annoyed) When do you never?
Tomomi: So what do you have planned today?
Ryuu: Getting medicine for my mom. She's sick.
Tomomi: (worried) Is she going to be okay?
Ryuu: Yeah I know a guy that can go get me medicine for her.
Tomomi: Okay I'll go with you.
Ryuu: No. Stay here. I don't want you getting hurt.
He leaves with his sword.
Ryuu walks to the outskirts of the town and meets a group of thugs.
Thug: You're in the wrong place idiot.
Thug: Like hell I will!
He shoots an arrow at him and misses. Ryuu walks past him.
Ryuu: I told you to move.
He sheaths his sword back and kills him.
Bandit: What in the hell was that?!
Ryuu: I cut his heart ten times and then it burst like a balloon.
Bandit: (shocked) YOU'RE INSANE!!!
Ryuu: No. He just got out of control. So I served him his own justice.
Bandit: I'll give you justice!
The rest of the thugs all attack him.
Ryuu: 20 ignorant thugs ready to throw their life away.
He slices one of them in half.
Ryuu: 19 more to go.
They keep charging at him.
Ryuu: I discovered something new. I don't know how to properly use it except when I'm angry.
He sets everyone on fire and slashes then one by one.
He walks to the last thug.
Thug: You really are insane.
Ryuu: No. You just got out of control.
He stabs him in the heart and kills him. He continues to walk.
Tomomi: That was a great fight.
Ryuu: I thought I said to stay where you're at.
Tomomi: Yeeeeeaaaahhh about that. I don't care. (flirting) I rather be with you.
Ryuu: (angry) Get lost you ugly witch!
Tomomi: I'm very pretty thank you.
Tomomi: Why are you so embarrassed of me?
Ryuu: I'm not now leave.
Tomomi: So you love me?
Ryuu: No! That's not what I meant.
They end up in the outskirts and everyone gives Tomomi a nasty look.
Ryuu: Tomo leave now. You're gonna get in a lot of trouble.
Villagers: We don't serve your kind little girl. Get out!
They start to rebel on her.
Villagers: WE HATE WITCHES!!!
Villagers: WE DON'T NEED FILTHY PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!
They throw rotten food at her.
Villagers: PEOPLE LIKE YOU NEED TO BURNED!!!
They grab torches and pitchforks and try to drive her out the village.
Villagers: WE HATE WITCHES!!! WE HATE WITCHES!!! WE HATE WITCHES!!! WE HATE WITCHES!!!
Ryuu: Tomo just go.
Tomomi: (crying) No. I rather stay with you.
One of the villagers stab her with a pitchfork and tries to her.
Tomomi: (bleeding)(crying) Ryuu? I know you hate me but please help me. I'm sorry if I'm a handful but please don't abandon me.
They smack her in the face with a torch.
Ryuu: (in thought)(enraged) They are taking it too far.
Ryuu picks up a crate and throws it at the villager.
Ryuu: (angry) Leave her alone!
He punches him in the face and frees Tomomi.
Tomomi: (in thought) Ryuu? Are you okay?
Ryuu: (roaring) YOU'RE ALL GOING TO PAY!!!
He jumps in the air and shoots a giant fireball at the village. Burning everything to the ground.
A dragon flies in the air and knocks him out.
7 hours later, Ryuu wakes up.
Tomomi: Ryuu are you okay?
Ryuu: Why is everything burned down?
Tomomi: You don't remember? You did all this.
Ryuu: I did?!
Tomomi: Yeah. You shot a giant fireball in the air.
Ryuu: I gotta go.
The smuggler shows up.
Smuggler: You burned all my drugs. What are you going to do to pay for my medicine and equipment?
Ryuu: I don't know.
Smuggler: Better find out or I'll kill you. You got 2 years to get my stuff back or else.
Ryuu: Now I cant get the medicine for my mom.
Tomomi: I got it.
Tomomi: After you were knocked out, that drug dealer gave it to us.
Ryuu: All right lets go.
They go back to the house and give the medicine to Rika.
Rika: (sigh) I'm going to have to make the two of you leave.
Rika: You caused too much trouble. There isn't anything left for you guys over here.
Tomomi: Okay I understand.
Rika: What are you going to do now?
Ryuu: I'm going to Kakunodate and join the military as a samurai.
Rika: Following your fathers footsteps?
Rika: Stay out of trouble Ryuu.
Ryuu and Tomo leave and head to Kakunodate.
Tomomi: I'm tired.
Ryuu: (annoyed) Oh my god Tomo shut up!
Tomomi: Why do you have to be so mean?
Ryuu: Why do you ask all these stupid questions?
Tomomi: Can't we find a hotel and sleep?
A vampire comes out.
Vampire: I will not allow this human to pass through our territory.
Tomomi: Please let us pass. We don't want trouble.
Vampire: You can pass, but he must turn back.
Ryuu: Hey that's some bullshit! Why cant I pass?!
Vampire: Because we don't want filthy humans hanging around us vampires.
Ryuu: Screw your rules.
The vampire kicks him in the face and sends him flying.
Ryuu: You little asshole!
He draws his sword.
Vampire: Won't you ever learn?
He sucks blood from Tomomi and starts beating him.
Tomomi grazes him in the cheek.
Vampire: Now why would a half breed like you defend a inferior human being?
Tomomi: Because he's done the same for me.
The vampire kicks her as well.
Vampire: You are a traitor and a disgrace to the vampire race. I should kill you al-
He sees a dragon in the sky.
Vampire: (scared) As a matter of fact both of you may pass. I gotta go.
He runs off.
Tomomi: (in thought) That's the same dragon that knocked out Ryuu. We need to leave now.
They pass through the vampires territory and got to a inn.
