- After having another Horror-related dream, and attempting to dodge her landlord, Kaoru attempts to make some money as a melon bread salesgirl to make ends meet. But seeing Kouga, she runs after to get the money he owes her when she loses him.
- Entering the chamber of the Eastern Watchdogs to purify his blade, Kouga receives orders to get after the Horror Ishutaab who possesses the body of Kujou Azusa. Finding Kaoru waiting for him, Kouga gives her a ring as he promises to get her money soon.
- Meeting with her best friend Asami, Kaoru learns of the IT business proposal Kujou that was doing prior to becoming a Horror's vessel.
- Kujou instantly develops an interest in the girl as she is about to eat her when after scamming ¥50,000 from her and sensing the Horror blood on her. However, a combination of dumb luck and Garo stops Kujou from killing Kaoru with Ishutaab slain.
- After learning of Kujou's scamming the next day, Kaoru is relived when Kouga brings back her money. From there, Kouga explains that the Horrors are demons from ancient times that target people with darkness in their hearts, telling Kaoru that hers is pure as he explains the ring given to her is a protective charm.
- As he leaves, Kaoru questions why Kouga has saved her life.
