One morning, Lotte sees the leaves of the world tree in a rare color. She also finds a mark on her back which looks like one of the leaves. Judit interprets this as meaning she'll grow her wings soon, a sign of adulthood. However, Mercelida explains that the marks of adulthood form a heart shape. As it turns out, the world tree is rejecting Naoya and Asuha for upsetting the balance of magic in the Monster Realm and has affected Lotte's development, as well.moreless
A festival is being held in honor of the world tree, and Lotte will sing and dance as part of the tradition. Also, Lotte and her friends have a day of fun.

Naoya is asked to keep Asuha's royal blood a secret, but wants to confront Mercelida for leaving him to raise a daughter by himself. He sneaks into the palace as a maid, but is caught and coincidentally chosen by Mercelida to be her male escort for the night.

As it turns out, 23 year-old Naoya has a 10 year-old daughter named Asuha, who comes to live with him in the Realm of Monsters. Asuha goes to school with Astarotte, where she makes many friends, like Mist, Yuna, and Lucca. She also helps Astarotte make friends, and she is affectionately called "Lotte."moreless
Astarotte refuses to get along with Naoya and explains that she hates men for witnessing a bedroom scene between her mother, Mercelida Ygvar, and one of the men from her harem. Naoya still tries to have Astarotte open up to her, and manages to do so by replicating her favorite doll and is accepted as her "toy."moreless
