Abeno manages to convince Yahiko that he would never kill Aoi, and that if at all Aoi heard about it, he would laugh while holding his stomach. Yahiko removes the bite mark from Zenko's arm and promises to help her around the shrine for an year as apology. Ashiya meets another yokai, Jomatsu who wants help from the Mononokean to help the princess Anmo, whom he serves. He tells Ashiya about the fickle princess, who falls in love with just about anyone (or anything) and hides herself in an egg, heartbroken. While usually, she comes out the egg soon, this time, she hasn't come out even after a month, instead the egg grows larger. Ashiya agrees to help until Abeno arrives, since Abeno has to listen to the request of another client first. After arriving to where the princess' egg is, Ashiya somehow manages to make her come out of her egg. But instead of becoming a couple with Jomatsu, who is in love with her, she falls in love with Abeno, who has just arrived, creating a new problem for their return to the Underworld.
