    It's an early, foggy morning at a farm. Iwao Takahashi is tending to his cows as usual.

A birth is near. Ryo goes there and finds Kaeda staring at the cow. He tries to speak to her, but he gives up.
    Later, Ryo is clashing with Iwao because of his attitude. He wanders around a deserted town to search for an outlet for his emotions. He returns to the cowshed and stands in front of the cow with a hammer in his hand...
