The next morning, little zhan tells the others that he's going to play with the magic puppet until he gets what he wants. He doesn't want to go to the town of gray-blue, where he can't get the magic stone he needs. He'll take them to an inn to get some rest, and then he'll go back to the city to get the stone. The narrator tells us that the fairy princess of the tribe is obsessed with the evil god, and she turned to him when he rejected her unholy sacrifices. She's now his chief priest, and the entire tribe is willing to listen to her. Little zhan says that he never agreed to the unholy sacrifices before he came along. He also says that wright isn't strong enough to mate with the fungus princess. Avit wakes up and asks if he can continue the treatment. The magic puppet looks a lot like avit, and it's hard to believe that a man could be treating his own self.
