Meanwhile, Rikka who has caught a cold from the Bon festival's rain, is still keeping the purpose behind her nightly outings a secret, to Yuta's worry and dismay. Shinka, as Mori Summer, encourages Satone to seek out and defeat her true enemy, who Satone concludes to be Yuta. As she challenges him, Kuzuha informs Yuta that Rikka has gone missing. Remembering a note that holds instructions on awakening the Dark Flame Dragon that was written when he was in middle school, Yuta realizes that Rikka had been out at night trying to fulfill these instructions the whole time. Worried for her health, Yuta pursues Rikka, and Satone follows.
