As Jin got out of the hospital, he proceeded to go to Kagutsuchi once again to find his brother, who is none other than Ragna the Bloodedge, and kill him. Another person got there, and it's his secretary, Noel Vermillion. How he hated her, for the fact that she resembles the person he hates the most since childhood: his sister, Saya.

Upon looking at her, Jin turns to cold eyes.

"It's the middle of the night. What are you doing here?" he asked.

"I... I was just... um..." Noel attempted to reply, but before she could do so, he walked past her.

"You should go somewhere where you can't bother me," Jin said coldly.

A tear comes out the lieutenant's face.

"Why, Major Kisaragi? No, Jin, why?" she demanded while looking at him. "Why won't you tell me anything? Why did you always treat me like trash? You never tell me a single reason for this."

"Why should I have to tell you anything?" Jin snapped and doesn't try to look back at her, but Noel didn't react to this. "Just keep your nose out of my business. It's none of your concern."

"I know you hate me. Even from the Academy, you hate me. However, if there's one act of kindness you did for me, you got my poem back to me. Remember that," she tries to find sense in him.

"I don't remember that," the Major said plainly.

"I see. That was a long time ago before the Ikaruga Civil War. You, me, Tsubaki, and Makoto. You were happy back then," Noel added with happiness while tears come out even more. "You're obsessed with this Ragna the Bloodedge. That's why you're laughing crazy in your office. Your obsession won't make anyone happy. Not you and me."

"I knew it," Jin stated apathetically. "I'm not the same as you. I'm doing something the three of you can't follow. I thought I could just be with you all, but I decided to get this Ragna the Bloodedge. I'll never be like you or Makoto, or even Tsubaki."

"Don't do this, Jin. Don't let that obsession get into your head!" the Lieutenant begged. "You love to find this man more than being with me or Tsubaki. You forget I have family and friends, but if you're not there, how will Tsubaki react?"

"You'll understand if you have your own way," her commander said.

"Jin, I'm begging you to reconsider this! If only you would stop treating me like trash and accept me help, I promise to do things right! I promise to stand up for myself! I'll do anything for you because I'm your subordinate. Please, go back to the Library! I'll even help you get Ragna the Bloodedge. I'll make it happen. I swear! So please, stay with me. If you can't, then take me with you!" Noel started to cry.

"You haven't changed," Jin turns around towards her with a smirk. "You still don't have confidence in yourself."

He walked away from her afterwards.

"Don't leave me!" Noel begged. "If you run, I'll scream and..."

However, before she could do so, Jin runs toward her from behind, and she looks surprised that she didn't bothered to look behind herself.

"Noel..." he said not in a coldly voice. "Thank you for everything."

This puts his subordinate with a surprised look. Out of all the times he treated her badly, he just thanked her for everything. Suddenly, she felt a hit, and goes down.


Carrying her body, Jin puts her to a nearby bench before continuing on his destiny to find his brother and kill him.
