Elsewhere, Hannah "Hatchin" Morenos lives the life of Cinderella among her adoptive family. Although he offers her a copy of the book as a gift and takes her to the top of the tower, she leaves him with the book, not knowing how to handle this sort of attention.
As soon as she realizes the mishap, Shinske has the hotel surrounded with guns pointed at them as a threat. An employee named Lenine, who learns that this book was recently sold, bumps into Hatchin in the marketplace, telling her to meet him at a church at three o'clock in the afternoon.
In the Heike headquarters, Shinske soon asks Eduardo and Wen to help him find Satoshi, to which the two agree on friendly terms. At night, when Michiko finally arrives, Hatchin rebukes her and claims to be living a better life now. After learning on the news that Michiko was arrested, Hatchin attempts to send a letter to her, but it came back undeliverable.
As Michiko and Hatchin work together to defeat Madame and Nuno, the former two fall into the sea to safety before lightning strikes down on the hot air balloon. Elsewhere, Michiko and Hatchin are surrounded by the police force.
However, Hatchin is oblivious to the rumors and believes that the children are being taken to an amusement park. Michiko disbelieves Satoshi when he says that Hiroshi was killed in a bus accident twelve years ago.
On the roof, Nei later asks Eduardo and Wen to free Michiko, but he first must agree to a challenge.
Atsuko meets a rebellious girl named Vanessa Lee, who was caught stealing potatoes nearby. Shinske has Michiko and Davi take a series of train routes, while evading the guns being shot at them, to see him at an abandoned train station at six o'clock in the evening.
When Atsuko finds a photograph of Hiroshi and Elis in the newspaper, she decides to help Ricardo receive his promotion by heading to a tomato production plant.
Michiko finally smiles as she looks out her window. After Michiko takes out her frustration on the television set from seeing a soap opera about a man and a lady doctor named Feliciano and Cinara, she begins to hallucinate and witnesses Hiroshi having a relationship with a researcher named Elis Michaela.
Hatchin later learns from Gino that he plans to stay in town after performing with Rita in the upcoming circus show.
As they happen upon a mister, who was formerly one of Hiroshi's old business associates, Michiko becomes forlorn after finding out that Hiroshi had not mentioned her at all. After passing by a restaurant, Rita takes Hatchin to an observation deck and explains that the Maria Statue is a weeping statue that sheds tears of blood, which possibly can grant wishes.
Ivan later informs Michiko that Hatchin is likely being held by Vasily Nabokov, the current leader of Fantasma, at a bullfighting arena in order to draw Michiko closer to him. Although Atsuko finds Michiko in a nearby cornfield, the former lets the latter go. After following Michiko to the inn, Jair challenges her to a gunfight taking place soon. Hatchin brings Michiko to a clinic, where they meet a strange physician named Deus, who uses a ritual to pull a fish out of Michiko's stomach as her treatment.
After Satoshi takes Michiko's scooter and drives off with Hatchin in tow, Michiko reaches for Atsuko's gun tossed aside in desperation, but not long before taking hits from Atsuko.
Luckily, they both make it out alive the next morning despite their failure in retrieving the golden pot. Meanwhile, Michiko gets herself in a car accident after being chased by the police, but after she manages to survive, she uses a police officer as hostage to continue driving in the patrol car.
Meanwhile, Hatchin stumbles upon Satoshi staying at a casino hotel, informing Michiko about this. However, Michiko manages to outwit Atsuko and evade the police, while also saving Hatchin from being shot by Pedro.
Because of this, Hatchin later storms out on Michiko. Satoshi and Hatchin are raided by Heike, who end up defeated by Satoshi.
