As Georges is in town helping Lise,​ the young teacher at the the orphanage,​ rumors begin to circulate in school that he now has a girlfriend.​ This serves to further alienate Robert,​ who is still guilt-ridden over the death of the one he loved,​ causing him to become once again aloof from Georges.​

Meanwhile,​ a new priest,​ Father Louis,​ arrives at school as a temporary replacement.​ From him,​ Georges learns a bit more about the reasons behind Robert's lack of faith,​ as well as the astounding fact that Father Louis is Robert's brother,​ and,​ further,​ that Robert is the school principal's son.​

When Georges' ailing mother suddenly takes a turn for the worse,​ Georges goes to the chapel to pray.​ Georges' blind devotion and piety remind Robert of another - a girl whom God allowed to die,​ despite all of her faith.​ Robert goes into a destructive rage,​ until Georges intervenes to calm his rampage.​ As Father Louis prepares to leave,​ he asks Georges to help Robert.​..

A short story of a brief childhood incident,​ which reveals that Georges and Robert have actually met before,​ is also included in this volume.​

Story and art by Chigusa Kawai.​
