Upon arriving at the hospital, Hakuren notes the presence of two soldiers who quickly retreat upon seeing Castor, but ignores them and starts to help the patients. Castor uses his Ghost strings to save someone, and is then ambushed by a group of small children who want to play with him. They are suddenly interrupted by an elderly man dressed in bandages who begins frantically screaming the military will "burn us down". As he is ushered back to his room by the nurses, Castor explains to Hakuren the reason for the man's fear.
During the Raggs War, the military's budget was running low so in order to redirect taxpayer's money to the military, hospices and hospitals were burnt to the ground. Hakuren is outraged, and his belief in becoming a Bishop as opposed to a tutor is reinforced, but they are disturbed by a group of children who mistake Hakuren for a prince. Their grandfather corrects them, and when Hakuren helps him, says that a politician who cares would be able to help them all. Hakuren realises that by becoming the princess' tutor he can influence her decisions, and decides to go to the 1st District.
Teito Klein, Frau, and Capella leave for Dals in the 5th District, with Carl watching them. Teito uses the money Madame gave him to buy gloves for Capella and a scarf for Frau- but after seeing a homeless man, gives the scarf to him instead. However, as he makes his way back, he is confronted by a mysterious figure.
