Bon’s brilliant idea was to get Fushi some new vessels just in case he lost them all. That’s how we get 3 knights with nothing to lose and an angry immortal sphere to save Renril from the Nokkers. Meanwhile, the castle is not against cooperating but they are not cooperating either. We are doomed.
Little Messar and the princess used to play the board game. In a given match, the princess tells Messar she doesn’t show her face to people she doesn’t trust. Does Messar want to become the little princess’s boyfriend? Is the castle hot topic. Messar realizes he lost the game and the princess makes a promise to him. If he wins next time, she will give him anything she wants. In the present day, Messar goes to the castle to ask for the blueprints they need. But the princess still keeps her distance from him.
He told the citizens the new walls are anti-Nokker to keep constructing the Fushi insurance houses. Fushi is against any help, he doesn’t want to negotiate with the princess or even Renril’s soldier’s help. Taking all the responsibility for the battle preparations.
Hairo is training with Renril soldiers when Fushi found him. He only notices his injuries after Cam, the soldier tells him. Meaning he doesn’t feel pain. Fushi asks him why play dumb when he could be seen as a painless hero but Hairo is aware that they need the soldier’s trust before that.
Hairo used to live captive in a church. He was used as a living teet factory because his teeth would grow back again even if they were pulled off. His only friend was his adoptive mother, a nun in the church who was nice to him. On his birthday, the nun gave Hairo a set of fake teeth so he could eat all the things he never tried before not having any teeth. She disappeared the day after and Hairo was given a very suspicious new set of false teeth that didn’t look so fake. When he grew up Hairo became a soldier and was helped by Bon to escape the church.
Cam who was just passing by looking for Hairo heard the whole story and oh my, Fushi’s reaction when he knew someone was spying on them. What happened to the cute Fushi, the no-violence Fushi? Fushi learns from Cam that the Renril soldiers want to protect their people by themselves. So he goes back to working in the Fushi network. He is working very hard to rebuild all the houses and spread the Fushi network before the Nokkers attack. Even to the point of exhaustion.
An old promise
After the tenth time Messar and Fushi bicker about…. something, Bon makes excuses for him telling us a little about his story. He’s an illegitimate son of the king and met Bon when they were both little children. He feels close to the princess in a very ambiguous way.
But even though Fushi doesn’t like Messar a little bit. He still does his job challenging the princess to a game in exchange for her trust. And would you believe he won without the princess’s help? So, now, the citizens are helping Fushi in his work, destroying the houses so Fushi can rebuild them faster.
Messar, in a sign of peace, tells Bon and Fushi he wants to protect his little sister. Be it as a family or something else.
