Rishia recounts how she was born in a poor but humble family. She had a peaceful life, but one day, she was taken away and imprisoned by a noble because of some debt to her father.

It was at this time that the bow hero came to her rescue. From that time on, she feels indebted to him and just wants to repay him. Ost Hourai tries to console her by saying that she believes that he is safe.

Naofumi shows up, saying that they are leaving for the back of the Spirit Tortoise at dawn. Since Ost Hourai is still alive, the Spirit Tortoise can revive and begin its rampage anytime.

However, the troops needed time to get back on their feet, Naofumi decided that he should go out with his team and check for the Tortoise’s weak points.

On reaching its back, Naofumi decides to lay camp on the Tortoise’s back. At night, Ost and Rishia sit near the campfire, where Rishia starts talking about how she was a single child and that leaving her parents was her own choice. However, she was traumatized when the bow hero’s party abandoned her.

Ost tries to cheer her up by saying that she still has a chance to save the bow hero. Ost suddenly starts feeling heavy in the head, hinting at something wrong. When they go in the direction Ost tells them to, they find destroyed houses and dead corpses there.

Mirelia shows up too, telling them there is a temple up ahead. She accompanies Naofumi and his party to the temple and finds some ancient texts and some things written in Japanese. Rishia helps them translate the ancient text. The place contains information about the Spirit Tortoise’s seal and how to break it.

The temple collapses suddenly, forcing them to move out. The Spirit Tortoise is expected to make its move soon. Ost finally remembers how to defeat the Tortoise, and that is by going inside it and destroying its heart.

Naofumi decides to go inside the Tortoise. Rishia is ready to come with them as she is now a member of his party. They reach inside the Tortoise with the help of some directions written inside the temple.

Inside, they encounter some adventurers revealed to be L’Arc and Therese, but Naofumi is shocked to see that Glass is also accompanying them.
