Shima wakes up and comments that she is not sure if she will hold on until Emilia returns.
Garfiel comments that she must not push herself since the old hag will take care of her. Subaru comments that what Garfiel is saying is confusing; he can call them old Shi and old Ryu.

Shima said it is about the memories of Ryuzu Meyer.
