Hisashi : Weird...
Hitsuga : Hmmm...
Suddenly Deira stops
Deira : Ok. Our little tour ends here, I will go ask to pack some food for you. Wait here !
Deira and Natya runs away with a bag .
Miyuki : This village sure is big... if this was only a part of it.
Hitsuga : Something bothers me about this place since we came here...
Hisashi : <.< please ...don't say it's demons
Hitsuga : No, it's something else
Miyuki : You scare me Hitsu...=\
Hitsuga : I feel some weak energy in north, lets go
Miyuki : But Deira told us to not go there... =\
Hitsuga : It may be important for us, as Shadow Reapers.
Miyuki : Well...okey
And so they went to Northern side of the village .
Meanwhile Deira and Natya reaches food seller

Seller : I know , you feel sad about this , but...it's for your own good
Deira looks upset
Deira : ...
Seller : Be happy that we left Natya with you... I will pack this bag... But bring those people to me.
