Chisato says "Mysterious! Somewhat nostalgic is this village, right?" Yukari proposes "Then, how about having a joy of walking around before we have spa." Hisae agrees "That sounds good."
Miyu finds a snake and utters, "Goddemon?"
After the maid leaves, Hisae says "Spiriting away? That can't be.." Yukari says "Maybe a screenplay to make this village more famous." Chisato says "Oh, no, Yukari..." Miyu, but, thinks seriously "Spiriting away?" Again, Miyu sees a snake rapidly move. Miyu utters "That's no mistake. A shadow of a goddemon."
When Chisato says "Hi, Miyu, what do you think?", Miyu is already gone to somewhere.
Chisato is, however, walking in the different place. Chisato says "I feel like coming to a different world! Say, Yukari, Hisae,,,," But, they are not around her.
Suddenly Chisato holds Yukari, and shouts "Yukari!" Yukari is also scared. A snake is in front of them. Hisae shouts "No! I dislike this!" Yukari also shouts "Oh, no! That's why I don't like rural villages." They runs away. Hisae says "Wait! Yukari!"
She stumbles over a stone, and falls. She says "Ouch. What the hell is here a stone in the middle of the way." But, She is not on the way but around a bog. She utters "Where .. am.. I?"
The way she came from has vanished. Around a bog in a forest. She says "It seems to me I've seriously lost the way."
She finds a small shrine, and says "No other choice. I ask taking a shelter from rain." And she enters into the shrine, saying "Sorry to disturb.." "Ah, a mirror," says she. A mirror is set in the shrine.
When she tries to touch the mirror, a snake comes out and it winds up her arm. When she is flightened, a hand comes out and grips the snake. It is a boy with a big leaf as his umbrella. He says "Stop! Don't scare her! Go home now!" and he releases the snake. He, then, looks up to Chisato and says "Welcome home! You came back at last! Big sis! Ah? You are not?" Chisato then realizes that she is scared by a snake, and shouts "Snake! Kyaaaaaaaaa." Chisato says "No snake? no more snake? Alright? Hey!" The boy looks amazed, and says "Oh, what a cowardy big sis." Chisato says "What do you mean by cowardy! You little kid is too rude!" Then a sound of opening door. Again Chisato's shout. The boy says "You are different. I thought you should be that girl, but, she was not this cowardy." She says "Sorry that I'm not 'that girl' or something." he says "I lost having been glad (=premature joy). I was confident that "that girl" should come back." Chisato asks "'That girl', you mean, you are waiting for somebody?" He nods and says "I've been waiting for her for a long time, because it's a promise." Chisato utters "OK." She says "Thanx back then. I mean, you saved me from that snake." Then the boy says "Hey! Let's play, big sis. I've been bored because I've been alone for a long time." Chisato hesitates a little, "But, to play.." But the boy insists "Say! It's OK?" Finnaly Chisato proposes "Alright, after the rain." The boy looks glad, "Yeah!" And Chisato smiles.
Miyu runs to a corner of the way, and finds a woman is attacked by something like a shadow. Miyu utters "Goddemon? No, different." The shadow that has attacked the woman then changs to a lot of snakes and attaks Miyu. Miyu calls flame "Flame!" All the snakes vanish by the flame. Miyu utters "There must be something. Something that controles those snakes."
Miyu runs around the village. In a corner are Reiha and Matsukaze, who smiles seeing Miyu.
Chisato says "I didn't noticed this dark. I have to go back." But the boy is not satisfied "What? Play more! You are it, next time." She says "But my friends must be anxious about me, and you are also. Your parents must be anxious about you. You must go home." The boy seriously says "Go home? No. It's not allowed to go away from this bog. 'Cuz I made a promise." Chisato asks "A promise?" The boy explains "Yeah. I made a promise to guard this bog till that girl comes back, it's long time ago, I made the promise." She asks again "To guard the bog?" He says "So, play more with me, big sis." Chisato is troubled this time, and say s "Evenif you say so,.." The boy says "You say no? You can't? " She says "hmm, OK. Then I will come again tomorrow!" He says "Tomorrow?" Chisato explains "Yeah. We are going home to tokyo by train tomorrow. So, I will come here before that. Are you OK with it?" The boy is slightly brightened "Really?" Chisato says "Exactly. It's a promise." He also says "It's a promise!" She says "Yes! Let's link little fingers to confirm the promise." And Chisato tries to leave. She says "See you tomorrow!" He says "Yeah. I'm waiting for you! Good bye, Big sis!"
Miyu shouts "Reiha! This boy is different!" Reiha says "Oh, what would you say is different?" Reiha continues "This kind of place is very good. This place reminds me of something nostalgic." Matsukaze adds "It's the best place for goddemons to hide themselves." Miyu shouts "Don't poke your nose to my business without my permission, Reiha!" Reiha says "It seemed to me that you underestimated." Matsukaze adds "'Without your permission' is your greeting word to us? I mean we gonna help you oversee." Miyu says "I don't need your help." Reiha says "Then, shall we decide which of us should settle the issue?" And Reiha launches ice needles to Miyu. Miyu also launches flame. Miyu shouts "You are requested to stop that!" Reiha asks "Oh, Why would you say something so strange?" Matsukaze adds "Aren't you gonna allow that guy? That guy is also a stray goddemon." Miyu shouts "I say no!" Reiha says "I say yes!" Again the attack from Reiha. Miyu holds the boy and jumps. Boy shouts "No!" But, the needles which Reiha lauches hit the shrine, and breaks the seal of the mirror inside the shrine. The boy shouts "The mirror is..." Miyu asks "The mirror?" Then sound from the bog.
The voice of a woman from the bottom of the bog. The water surface separetes into two.
The boy utters "Sorry, I broke the promise!" He looks disappointed. Matsukaze says "What the hell is going on?" Miyu explains "This boy is the guardian of the seal. And that is the very goddemon."
A goddemon comes out from the separated surface of the bog.
The goddemon is "Goddemon Jaka(SnakeFlower)." Jaka says "Oh, the seal was broken at last!"
Many snakes in the bog, and the bog bites Jaka's body. Each snake gives the power from people to Jaka. Jaka says with joy "Oh, great human life power permeate to my whole body. This is just what people say the feeling of revival." The boy is scared. Jaka continues "Thou, disgusting brat! Thou hast been guarding the seal! I will revenge thee by cutting thee into eight parts!"
Jaka launches a lot of snakes to the boy. And the snakes are burnt by the flame. It's Miyu. Miyu says "Sorry to wake you up, you stray goddemon. This time, I seal you firmly. So you take a rest." Jaka says "Hmm, an overseer again? But, this time, I will never be defeated easily."
The tail of Jaka winds Miyu and the boy and screwes up. Jaka says "Thou idiot. Thou art the being of our side in the begining. What's the reason why thou are against me." He answers "'Cuz I made a promise! to guard this bog, with that girl!" Miyu asks "That girl?" Jaka says "That's silly. Such a promise is now broken." Jaka attacks Miyu and the boy, then Larva comes.
Jaka shouts "What?" Larva returns all the attack from Jaka. Miyu shouts "You stray goddemon, return to the darkness!" Jaka shouts. The boy watches Miyu shining in gold, and he feels something, and utters "That is..." The shrine also burns down.
Miyu quietly says "Now that you are released from this bog, like that goddemon. It up to you where to go." He answers "No, I go nowhere. I'll wait for her here. Because, I made a promise." Miyu says "A promise." "Yeah," says the boy.
Reiha sees them talk and say "It seems to me that Miyu is not going to dispose of that." Matsukaze asks "However chicken-hearted, he's a stray goddemon. Do you think it's OK to allow him?" Reiha answers "I don't mean that it is alright. However, He is too weak for us to deal with." Matsukaze says "It's too expensive to make Miyu angry only by disposing of a small fly, right?" Reiha says "Exactly. Shall we go home quietly today?"
The boy says to Miyu "Thanx big sis!" and he jumps into the bog. Miyu looks back at him. Miyu utters "Promise..." It begin to rain again. A cracked mirror.
Chisato is not satisfied "But, I made a promise.." Hisae says "There's no choice Chisato, and the boy cannot go there, too." Yukari adds "If we are too slow, the train will depart." Chisato agrees and says "Hmm, I see. Ah, by the way, I haven't yet ask that boy his name."
On the way to the station, Miyu finds a little Jizo(guardian deity of children). It reminds her of that boy.
The TV news reports the accidents in the place of resort-development. The news reporter narrates "This kind of accidents constantly happens. It is rumored "A cursed resort-development" in the place."
Miyu utters "That boy is still waiting for,, keeping the promise." Chisato calls Miyu again, "Rush, Rush! Miyu!" "I know! Chisato!" says Miyu and runs to Chisato.
