This chapter opens with a description of the Iron Man's new weapon, which he calls "the first heartless man in the universe." He exclaims that this is the best that he can do now, and that it makes sense to see him destroy a ship with his bare hands. He asks Le to teach him how to use a hammer, and Le promises to do so whenever he comes to the shop. Le tells him that he needs to familiarize himself first with the hammer before he can use it to create his own power. Le reminds him that it is getting late, and he should go get some food. Le says that he will come back the next day. He tells Le that he is on vacation for a period of two weeks, so Le will keep his company. Le notices that two weeks have passed since Le said he would take a three-day vacation. Le is furious that he has not yet heard from the kid, and says he will quit if Le does not come back. He says he is at his wits' end, and will not help Le anymore. He promises to come back when he is free.
