Zen goes close to her and removes her hood with his sword. He got surprised by her unusual shade of red hair. She offers to help him with the injuries but he backs off and questions that she could poison him. To prove her innocence she hurts her arm with Zen’s sword and applies for the same herbal medicine that she was offering to Zen. On contrary, she also said that carrying poisons is not her hobby. Zen chuckles and apologized to Shirayuki. He gets his wound treated by her.

When she was treating Zen, a basket of apples arrives at the abandoned house. She tells Zen the whole story of her sudden escape from her hometown. Zen remarks Raji as an idiot. Before she eats the apple, he grabs her hand and eats a bite from it. Suddenly he staggers and collapses on the floor. The messenger who bought the apples arrives at the door.
