Namihira tells Yoshimori that Okuni wants to study Kekkaishi abilities. Doing so might allow them to prove that Kekkaishi weren't involved in the Shinyuuchi huntings. Tokine secretly listens from nearby, but can't hear everything being said. Yoshimori seriously considers the offer, realizing that if he allows Okuni to examine him, he might be able to clear his mother and older brother of suspicion. Namihira explains that Okuni simply has an overwhelming thirst for knowledge, and may be willing to share information with Yoshimori in return. Yoshimori warns that there are many things he wishes to know, and Namihira suggests that he negotiate with Okuni directly. Namihira summons two Flying Shikigami to transport them, and Tokine is alarmed as she watches them fly off. She is then joined by Sen Kagemiya and Shu Akitsu, who were following Yoshimori and are just as concerned.
Masamori visits Ichirou Ougi's house.
At Okuni's Mansion, Okuni explains to Yoshimori that her ultimate goal is to know the truth. Yoshimori wants to know more about the Shinyuuchi huntings, Karasumori, the Ougi Clan, and the prophecy. Okuni says her answers will depend upon his own performance. A subordinate tells Okuni that Masamori has gone to confront Ichirou. Okuni explains to Yoshimori that Ichirou is a very dangerous opponent, but that Masamori could no longer tolerate his friends and family being targeted. Okuni admits she doubts even Masamori thinks he can truly win against Ichirou. This makes Yoshimori furious, and he grabs Okuni, demanding to know where Masamori is.
Masamori waits calmly for Ichirou to return. Ichirou finally does, in the midst of an enormous tornado.
