During that same night, as the guys and Rihana settle in to sleep, an unown presence enters their room. troubled in his sleep, Aomaru wakes to find that the window is open and that there are a few dried petals scattered on the floor beneath it. Allister and Taneji wake up as well and try to find out who broke into their room, until finally, after more that an hour of failed attempts, the invader gives up and leaves the room (invisible), pushing his way to the window and leaving the same way he came in. He then returns to Mika and informs her that her companions are useless. She takes a morning ride in the fields and calls Caine, who arrives a few moments later, then questions him about his identity, superiors and motive for killing innocent young women. As the interrogation proceeds Caine becomes less and less able to maintain his haughty behaviour (due to intense pain, or so it seems), and finally Mika takes pity on him and stops, finally telling him about herself, which draws the conversation to the death of her twin brother and to the Dragon- Blooded responsible, who has been trying to expose Mika as an Anathema since she exalted. Caine promises to “find out” exactly what that man wants to gain by his actions, then leaves.
