Slow and sure. I
Rian recalls his childhood playing happilywith Philomena. During PE Elias watches Chise happy with her friends and is momentarily jealous. Adolf sadly recalls his original home in Dresden, Germany, which he hasn’t visited since it was destroyed during World War II, reminding Elias just because Chise is happy where she is doesn’t mean she won’t ever return home. Veronica encourages Philomena to make friends with Chise but she is suspicious of Veronica’s motive. Philomena is abruptly summoned by her family, most of whom scorn her for her mother’s efforts to become heir ahead of other relatives. She asks family familiar Alcyone how Chise could have caught her spying while concealed. Alcyone reveals some mages can scent emotions, even the human soul itself, and promises to find a countermeasure. Philomena’s grandmother, a cruel, abusive woman, has a job for her. Alice is advised by a teacher to relax with her training as she is pushing herself too hard. Adolf notices Renfred is troubled about Alice. The students are taken wild camping in Scotland to learn bushcraft. While there Chise is watched by a purple eyed creature.
