Types of Ritual

He then explains that one of it is "Gathering". Where one has to obtain the ingredients needed for the rituals, such as facing danger against hunting of a wild beasts. While the second is called the "Initiation", where one has to offer the gathered ingredients and endure the hardships.

After explaining the basics, Shion then explains the next ritual, which is the Manastone Decoration. Using the Rubeus Manastone, it can increase the power of the seal once it input on the ring. But because they are rare, it can only be found at a certain place. Shion tells Emma that it's a long travel so they should arrive after a quick nap.

While Emma was continuously looking at the ring, Anise believed that Emma was still reluctant about this, as it is a marriage in the end. Anise teases by saying that as a girl, having to be married to someone weird like Shion. Causing Shion to twitch nervously. But Emma replies saying that she doesn't feel like that at all. As Shion risked his life to save her, she doesn't want to be a burden to him and wishes to quickly complete the ritual. Hearing this Shion interupts saying that he doesn't think of Emma as a burden at all. But cuts short saying she shouldn't read too much into it.

Anise, who was enjoying the display of love between the two, suggest to complete a ritual that can be done right here. Teasing Shion to do it quickly, which confuses Emma. Anise then explains that it is the ritual of "Kiss of Oath".

With that, Emma is willing to complete the ritual and asks Shion to be gentle. But Shion, who was nose bleeding, tells Emma that they can do this at other times and they should rest first.

After all the commotion, Emma apologizes for destroying Shion's house, but Shion replies saying it's not a problem and opens a door. To Emma's surprise, the other side of the door lead to a completely different area than before with it's own set of house and ocean. Emma whom was first time seeing the ocean, jumps straight into the water asking what this is. Shion explains that this is just a magic room. After Emma got out of the water, Shion brings her inside of the house where he has prepared all kinds of cloth to wear. He explains that if you knock on it everyday, the clothes will change. Emma who was deeply touched by this thanks Shion. Whom ran away from embarrassment like a girl.

8 hours later, as Shion woke up from his sleep, thinking about the kissing, he groups onto Emma's breast. To his shock, Emma had been sleeping next to him. She explains thatsince she is Shion's wife it's natural for her to sleep next to him as she read about the marriage in the book when she was young. Emma, trying to act like a wife prepares the breakfast which looks horrible. But Shion manages to eat without a problem, while Emma after one gulp, throws up. As Emma doesn't want to eat the breakfast she made, Shion decides to cook her himself.
