When the Hollow had first started charging him, Kaito had begun backpedaling. The items orbiting his head dropped to the ground as his hands were pushed forward, trying to hold the Hollow back. It only slowed the beast down a bit. He fell backwards onto the ground, trying to scramble away as best he could.

Thankfully, that tiny bit was enough to save Kaito's life, as the whole group came together to finally vanquish the creature.

Any of Kaito's questions to Sayaka were blown away when Val started coughing...and couldn't stop.


He scrambles over, half-crawling, to his friend. He stops a couple of feet away, clearly unsure what to do. He turns to the girl who helped them in the nurses' office.

"Sayaka! Do something!"

His face is pleading, as are his words.
