This chapter gives a comedy twist to the plotline. Still in the desert the group come across what seems like quicksand. We are re-introduced to Teko which is just a tiny cat-like animal. Mikusa and Rami talk about their very close relationship (love on Rami’s behalf) , making Kotoha realise something about her and the other Arata. Arata is warned to not step in them but for some reason he does.
However, Mikusa goes to look for Arata and finds him passed out a bit further away. The twist comes in the form of body switching. Arata is now in Teko’s body and vice versa! XD
