Freedom is beautiful, but brutal.
Fifteen children escape Grace Field House, a false paradise, hoping for a chance at freedom. Instead, they encounter plants and animals they have never before seen, and are chased by demons. The outside world is so beautiful, and yet is almost too cruel to face.
Even so, the children refuse to give up. They are guided in their search for better lives only by a message from Minerva and a pen Norman left behind in order to fulfill their promise to return to the House to save those of their family who are still trapped within.
Emma and the children have finally escaped the House and now head to the place indicated on the pen Norman gave them. But on their way, a large, wild demon attacks the group...
The children's saviors turn out to be demons named Mujika and Sonju. The pair claims that their religion forbids them from eating humans. Emma and Ray visit Sonju while the others are sleeping in order to find out what happened to humans thirty years ago.
Emma and the group learn the necessary skills to survive in this world from Mujika and Sonju. Back on their own, the children traverse a wasteland in search of a place called "B06-32."
Without warning, the shelter's phone begins to ring, echoing through the halls. Emma hesitantly answers and finds that it is William Minerva. Meanwhile, in an underground room at the farm headquarters, a deal is made...
Emma and the other escapees manage to survive the attack on the shelter. Now they have settled in an abandoned temple a short ways from a demon town. Unlike the shelter and Grace Field House, here there is a limited supply of food, and they are barely surviving.
Norman, thought to have been shipped, stands before Emma and Ray. It is a reunion they never dreamed of, and they embrace tearfully. Norman reveals his plan to create the future Emma wants, where the children can live happily.
Though Emma pleads with him, explaining she has no wish to eradicate the demons, Norman is set in his decision and deaf to her arguments. To resolve their dispute, Emma proposes a deal.
Norman, seized by a terrible fit of coughing, spits up blood. He lied about not being experimented on when he was at Lambda. With the little time he has left, Norman manages to reunite with Emma and hopes to create a world where she and the children can live in peace.
