Story: Nikki turns down Xiao Zong's incredible offer and challenges him to a styling contest. But Xiao Zong is unfathomably powerful. Could Nikki really beat him?

Dialogue Edit

Part 1: Edit

  • Momo: Nikki...
  • (Nikki clenches her fist tightly. Her body is shaking violently, but she doesn't let the tears fall.)
  • Xiao Zong: You've got a loud voice.
  • (Xiao laughs and raises his head high to quaff until the last drop of wine falls from the gourd.)
  • Xiao Zong: Too bad it's to no avail.
  • Nikki: Please have a style contest with me! The theme will be the Cloud Swordsman costume you are wearing now. If I win, please spare my friends!
  • Xiao Zong: Heh... I'll indulge you.

At this point in the game, the player will lose to Xiao Zong in the resulting styling battle.

Part 2: Edit

  • Nikki: This is unbelievable...
  • Momo: This, this is unscientific! Momo has never heard about this kind of thing! You are just unreasonably powerful!
  • Xiao Zong: Easy, just like snapping fingers. If you call this 'powerful', then you'd better give up upon your wild dream.
  • Momo: Don't you get so cocky here. Nikki will surely beat you!
  • Xiao Zong: Hahaha, try as hard as you can. To be honest, I really wish you could defeat me.
  • Nikki: I...
  • Momo: Nikki? Nikki, don't cry...
  • (Nikki raises her arm and wipes her eyes hard.)
  • Nikki: Momo, I am fine and I'm not crying.
  • Nikki: It's just one failure. I won't give up! There are many people waiting for me to take back their precious memories. I can't stop here...
  • (Nikki's body is gradually surrounded by strips of light. A warm strength surges in his body.)
  • (Born from infinite desperation is a unique light of hope.)
  • Momo: ...Nikki?! Am I dreaming? Are you glowing?!
  • Nikki: Ehh?! What... is happening?
  • Momo: Look! These light strips are coming from your pocket!
  • (Nikki reaches into her pocket and takes out a ring in the shape of a tiny butterfly. It's emitting many ribbons of light.)
  • (When the light disperses, Nikki seems to see a vast field of white blossoms blooming within.)
  • Nikki: This... is the ring from Kimi!?
  • Momo: ... A work of King Sayet in his youth?
  • Nikki: Yeah... I don't know what just happened, but perhaps...
  • (Nikki holds the ring tight in her hand and challenges Xiao Zong again.)
  • Nikki: Please have another Cloud Swordsman costume contest with me!
  • Xiao Zong: Baby girls are never tired of playing these little games, huh? I don't mind some more exercise if you want this.
  • Nikki: No! This time... This time will be different!

Part 3: Edit

  • Momo: Nikki... What did you do? Why did you suddenly...
  • Nikki: In this ring, I can see stars reflected on the lake and feel great power just like when we went back to Pigeon Forest from Shadow City!
  • Nikki: And... I don't know what was going on either. I just tried my best in the match like I always did...
  • Xiao Zong: (Talks to himself) Sayet...?
  • Momo: Hey there! Nikki has won! Let us out now!
  • Nikki: And my friends. Please keep your word and free them from the illusion!
  • (Xiao Zong slowly puts the wine gourd back to his waist, the expression on his face hard to fathom.)
  • Momo: You... What do you want?!
  • Xaio Zong: Interesting. Guess how many more times that ring can help you?
  • Nikki: You--
  • (What happens next makes Nikki swallow what she's about to say.)
  • (An incredible scene, together with the bamboo leaves under the moonlight and fluttering hair of Xiao Zong, is reflected in her eyes.)
  • (Then it goes all dark.)

Trivia Edit

  • The translation refers to Nikki as "his"; this is likely a translation error.
  • Nikki's final score for the second try at the styling battle can reach over a million points in order to beat Xiao Zong's abnormally high score, about ten times higher than other scores in the chapter.
