Kira returns to the smoldering remains of her home and finds that virtually all of her possessions have been destroyed. The garden that she and her mother tended is still intact, though, and someone has left a stack of saplings for building nearby. As Kira arrives, a woman emerges from the bushes and begins stealing carrots from the garden. Kira shouts at the woman and drives her off, but not before the scornfully laughing woman steals her fill. Vanadara, a muscular woman with a scar confronts her and tries to shoo her out of the town, but Kira suddenly gets a boost of confidence, and decides to fight back, causing Vandara to get angry and schedule a court meeting.
