Isumi: I was wondering what's wrong. Is he sick? I wanted to see him again before the pro exams, so… Waya?
Zelda: That's not the only match Shindou has a forfeit on, Isumi-san. It's been like that since May. Don't trip now. I don't understand. It seems like he doesn't want to play Go anymore.
Hikaru: If I were to play Go again… Sai would be gone forever… That… I… I'm afraid of that.
Isumi: All thanks to the Waya medicine.
Zelda: Waya medicine?
Isumi: I gave him some medicine when he got a stomach ache. Remember? The kind you always take when you have one. I figured since he looks just like you, the medicine would work on him, too.
Zelda: That makes no sense!
Isumi: Anyway, it worked like a charm, and we became good friends.
Zelda: Isumi-san! You haven't changed at all. You would look more like you just came back from training if you had a beard or something. I was surprised when you call. How was China? Huh? What is it?
Isumi: Le Ping! You grew up so quickly!
Zelda: So that's what you were doing.
Isumi: Yeah, it's good that Le Ping started following me around and studying, but… he was always glaring at me.
Zelda: What a brat?
Isumi: He's just a kid, but he's really good. But I did end up becoming good friends with him.
