Kurumi and Kotori start fighting after a short conversation. Kurumi used one of her skills to make Kotori stay still, create copies of her, and shoot her a few times. Kotori fell over after Kurumi's last shot but Kotori's healing skill enables her to not die. Then, the shocked Kurumi send her copies to kill Shido but he was pushed away by Kotori and the copies were killed. In the heat of the fight, Kurumi used her one of her skills to Kotori but it only worked for a while. Kotori used her weapon to shoot Kurumi's angel after the frightened Kurumi summoned her copies to shield her. He immediately stands in front of Kurumi to shield her, knowing Kotori is no longer herself at that time when he tries to reason with Kotori to not kill Kurumi. Later, after the shot have launched, Kotori suddenly regained conscious and deflects the shot. Shido woke up on the bed after having a dream of the event that happened 5 years ago. He went to meet Kotori for information of her powers after being calmed down by Reine. He left the place in despair to meet Mana and Origami in the hospital after he heard from Reine about Kotori's condition. Being unable to meet Mana, Shido instead meets Origami, who tries to get him closer to herself. Before Shido exit Origami's room in the late evening on that day itself, she told him of her intend to kill the Spirit of Fire after finding it for 5 years to avenge her parent's death, and the reason that she joined AST.
