Tetsunosuke is doing more chores by orders of Hijikata. This time he's cleaning the dojo. Half way through he heard noises outside and met Yamanami Keisuke, the other Vice-chief of the Shinsengumi. Unlike Hijikata, Yamanami is very nice and personable. After finishing his work, Ayumu asked Tetsunosuke to go grocery shopping for her. On the streets, Tetsunosuke met the little girl that he saved before. He learned that she's a mute and her name is Saya. While talking to her, Tetsunosuke had a flashback of when his father took him to the temple and taught him that if they step back 3 steps away from the coin donation box, and throws the coin in, the percentage will be higher for their wishes to come true. Tetsunosuke took 10 steps away from the coin donation box and threw a coin in. Tetsunosuke then tells Saya that his father spoke a strange foreign language (English) and because of it, a xenophobic faction murdered him. Tetsunosuke's mother was also killed, leaving only him and his brother. He then learned that Saya's parents were also murdered and asked her if she felt like killing the people who killed her parents. Rambling on, he told her that the reason why he joined the Shinsengumi is to get stronger and get revenge on his parents, but he couldn't do it just by doing chores all day, and he doesn't want to kill people just to get stronger. He doesn't want to become a demon and doesn't know what to do. Saya wrote on the ground, "Stay the way you are" and Tetsunosuke snapped. He doesn't want to stay weak forever. Saya got angry with him and ran off. Back at the Shinsengumi head quarters, Kondo, Hijikata, and Yamanami are at a meeting talking about the Choshu, Yamanami doesn't want Tetsunosuke to be involved with the Shinsengumi fearing that he would get hurt. Hijikata declared that he intend to keep Tetsunosuke as his page forever. But Kondo, while talking to Yamanami said that he actually intends to give Tetsunosuke a uniform and some equipment, but it will still be Tetsunosuke's choice whether he wants to official join.moreless
