Rose receives news of Prince Konan’s whereabouts and begins preparing for a journey of revenge. Sorey is told of the unceasing rain by Sergei and decides to go to Pendrago, the capital of Rolance, to investigate the cause. Worried about Dezel, Sorey asks Rose to join him on the journey, but is flatly turned down. As he heads out to Pendrago, he asks Mikleo to follow Rose, and Dezel who is with her. Mikleo agrees, and he and Edna set out to check on how Rose’s journey is going.
