Sayomi has defeated her older brother from the Nakamura clan, and the member of the bakudaina known as the bloodline; Takumi Nakamura. After her victory, she allows Yukio to fix and clean his body and wounds. They go back to her hometown a week later and prepare for his funeral. The family continues to live on redeemed.
Sayomi finishes praying.
Kazumi: Sweetie are you okay?
Sayomi: I'll manage.
Sayomi: Thank you for being a good mom. I'm sorry for giving her a hard time. Even though she was my stepmother. I loved her company. That was his last words.
Kazumi: Well I'm glad I was able give him some company. I'm gonna miss your brother.
Sayomi: I'll see you around mom. Hachiman is waiting for me.
Kazumi: Okay sweetie you be safe.
They leave and go to the hot springs.
Sayomi bathes in the water.
Yukio: Hello Sayomi.
Sayomi: (blushing) Eh! How did you get in here?!
Yukio: This is a mixed bathing springs.
Sayomi: (blushing) Yeah well its not like I wanted you in here.
Yukio: I'm worried about you. Are you okay?
Yukio: It'll be alright.
Sayomi: I know.
Yukio: Hey can I ask you a question?
Sayomi: What is it?
Yukio: What's an angel?
Sayomi: They are supposed to be one of the most beautiful creatures in the world. They are humans with wings on their back. They are protectors for humans and servants to the gods. They have extraordinary abilities, and they are the purest of all mythical creatures.
Yukio: You think I can be one?
Sayomi: I'm sure there's a way.
Yukio: Being a vampire is a bore. I cant eat good food, my skin is always cold, and its so annoying that all I can taste is blood. I want a new life.
Sayomi: That's fine.
Yukio: You're a lot warmhearted than I thought.
Sayomi: I never said I was a cold person.
Yukio: I thought you were mean.
Sayomi: I never said that. I don't mind opening up to people.
Yukio: Um, can I ask you one more question?
Sayomi: Are you hungry?
Yukio: Uh no. Its more important than that.
Sayomi: I don't know what you want. What is it?
Yukio: Can I be your boyfriend?
Sayomi: Yukio I don't know. I love your company and you're really hot.
Sayomi: I am bisexual. I may have feelings for a girl and I don't want to hurt your feelings or anything.
Yukio: I'm well aware of that, but I just like being around you. Yeah you may be hard and tough on me, but you have a caring side I like.
Sayomi: I'm a bit nervous. Just give me more time okay sweetie?
Yukio: Yes ma'am Sayohime.
Yukio: Just a nickname since you're a princess.
Sayomi: That's so cute!
Sayomi: Yes sweetie.
Yukio: I'm hungry. May I start feeding please.
Sayomi: Yes you may.
He bites her neck and starts feeding.
He keeps drinking.
Sayomi: Yukio. It hurts.
He continues sucking blood.
Sayomi: Let go!
He bites harder and continues sucking blood.
Sayomi: I said let go!
She punches him.
Sayomi: (upset) That really hurt! When I say let go you let go! Do you understand?!
Yukio: Yes ma'am. I'm sorry.
Sayomi: (sigh) Why didn't you let go?
Yukio: I don't know. The taste was just rushing to my head. The taste of your blood changed.
Sayomi: What do you mean?
Yukio: It taste better than before.
Sayomi: (embarrassed) You vampires are so complicated. I wish you could eat food like humans
Yukio: It's not my fault. Tomomi created me as a vampire.
Sayomi: All I ask is that if you want to feed then please be gentle.
Yukio: May I continue my meal please?
Sayomi: Be gentle.
Yukio continues feeding.
Sayomi: Plus if you want to be my man, then you have to start learning how to treat a princess. Didn't Tomomi teach you?
Yukio: I never met Tomo.
Sayomi: Oh. Anyways why do you wanna be my boyfriend so badly? Don't you hate me?
Yukio: No I don't. I love you so much that I'm willing to do anything to help you along the way.
Sayomi: And what can you do to help me?
Yukio: Fix your wound.
Sayomi: What wound?
Yukio: Your heart. It's filled with so much despair. I wanna turn all that despair and hate into love.
Sayomi: Is that what you want?
Yukio: Yes. I'm practically dead so it doesn't matter. I want to serve you.
Sayomi: Your lack of emotions prove it.
Yukio: As a vampire I have poor emotions. I wish I could express more to you.
Sayomi: Lets head for Hachiman's cabin.
Yukio: Yes Sayohime.
They get dressed and leave the hot springs.
Hachiman: Ready to go?
Sayomi: Lets start training.
Hachiman cuts open a dimension and heads to his cabin.
Ryuu: Sayomi? Why she here Hachiman?
Hachiman: Because she is the descendant of my younger brother. The Nakamura clan are the side branch from the Yamada clan. She can learn the same techniques I will be teaching you. What a hassle. To train a draconian and a demon.
Sayomi: Why do you hate demons and dragons so much?
Hachiman: A dragon killed my middle brother, then Honjo that same damn sword that keeps showing up around you cursed my youngest brother. He killed himself afterwards.
Ryuu: Sayomi is that true?
Sayomi: Yes. The Nakamura are the side branch of Hachiman's youngest brother. In a way the two of us are cousins.
Hachiman: I'm going to be strict as hell with you two. Especially you Ryuu you tend to have the worst temper of all Yamada members.
Ryuu: (sarcastic) Real nice.
Hachiman: What is it Sayomi?
Sayomi: Why does your cabin look like a warzone outside.
Hachiman: Do you see those eight flags and skulls out there? All eight of those skulls that are stabbed with flags are leaders I killed.
Sayomi: Who started the war?
Hachiman: I did. I would take out and kill ever single leader who owned this flag.
Sayomi: I bet you had a lot of subordinates in your army.
Hachiman: I did not. They watch me singlehandedly slaughter every single clan and army. I slaughtered everything till there was nothing left.
Ryuu: You killed every single army by yourself?
Hachiman: Yes. I wanted the world to know that not every single warrior in this world we're ruthless brutes. I traveled country by country and gave everyone peace. But as I came back to Japan. My last war was with my master. I slaughtered and killed him and his army. However there was one person I just could not kill.
Ryuu: Who was it?
Hachiman: The god of lightning. Raijin. As bad as I felt for him I couldn't kill him.
Sayomi: So what did you do?
Hachiman: He admitted defeat and surrendered. I gave him mercy.
Hachiman: He reminded me like my brother. He was very unique. The day I fought him was the day I discovered something new. I asked him what technique is that? Its not swordsmanship. He said your right, its lightning. I knew that day that he had a gift. So I spared him.
Ryuu: So what is todays lesson?
Hachiman: Learning the way of the sword.
He pull out a pieces of paper. He draws his sword and cuts nothing.
Hachiman: A sword that can cut anything is not a sword. A sword that can cut nothing can cut anything.
Ryuu: That makes no sense. All swords have to cut something, your blade must be really dull.
Sayomi: A sword that cuts nothing is useless.
Hachiman: You can choose whether you want to cut someone or something. Like I chose not to cut this paper. A warrior has a choice on how he wants to settle things. So do you two.
He gives him hundreds of papers.
Hachiman: Todays training. Do not cut anything. You may not help each other either.
Ryuu: Sounds easy.
Hachiman: Ryuu you lack in patience and tolerance. You need more self control in your swordsmanship.
Hachiman: And Sayomi. You have the potential, however Honjo's cooperation may not be easy. That cursed sword may have its habits on cutting things still.
Sayomi: (in thought) He's right. Honjo just cuts whatever he wants. I don't know if he'll listen to me yet.
Hachiman: Start your training.
