Ginko recalls when she was first met Kureha. When Kureha passed out due to the cold, a mysterious being gave her a lily, encouraging Ginko to take her the rest of the way. As Kureha and ginko spend their days being friends with each other, Kureha was bullied by her peers for her affinity towards bears. Wanting to protect Kureha, Ginko made a deal to become a human girl in exchange for Kureha's memories of her. After being sent back to the bear world by Reia, Ginko was exiled by her peers and waited until the day she met Lulu and cross the Wall of Severance with her. Back in the present, the Invisible Storm hold Kureha captive in order to lure out Ginko, who is being driven by Mitsuko's influence. However, Ginko manages to push aside Mitsuko of her own will and focus on her true love. On the rooftop, Kureha tries to turn Ginko away in order to protect her from snipers, but just as the sniper fires, Lulu steps in to take the hit instead, sacrificing herself to protect Ginko.
