Yuna is enjoying the feast Ans has prepared when Atla shows up to ask Yuna to take on a request. Sometime later, Yuna returns to Crimonia where she tells Fina that she has to do something. At Cliff's house, Yuna gives Cliff a letter from Millela asking to be under the wing of Crimonia. When Cliff expresses concern, Yuna reveals she dug a tunnel. The next day, Yuna, Cliff, and Milaine arrive in Millela. Afterwards, Yuna takes Fina and Shuri to see the ocean. However, Fina notices that she and Yuna are slowly drifting apart thanks to Yuna's job and popularity. As such, Fina asks Yuna if she can takes a break from harvesting. The next morning, Yuna hangs out with Noire while Fina is training with Gentz. Thanks to Noire and Gentz, Yuna and Fina realize how much they miss each other. When they meet up, Yuna and Fina vow to be together.
