Aoide asked Haruto, "Why are you here?"
"Because, you and I...have the same nemesis...the one who did this."

"Tamamo No Mae."
Canting her head at Haruto in an appraising way, Aoide said,
"For one so powerless and insignificant, you dare much, young one."
"Only I dare this and more,"
Haruto answered proudly.
"Best be forewarned."
