With the menace of the Suun clan no longer hanging over them, a peaceful era had finally arrived for the forest’s edge. Though new changes like the introduction of totos to their lives occurred, the Fa clan was no longer under constant threat. However, that peace couldn’t last forever, as the meeting with Cyclaeus loomed imminent, bringing with it the potential concern of a clash with the nobles of Genos.
Before all that though, Asuta has problems of his own to face, starting with a bratty new customer. And that’s not all, as his regulars from Sym and Jagar are preparing to soon depart! Will Shumiral be able to work up the nerve to confess his feelings towards Vina Ruu, or will the circumstances weighted against him simply prove too much?
