Mariana expresses how she has missed him, and he to her.

She has a potion and they must drink it in for Dongbu's favor to right the conflict.Kai disagrees and says that no potion is better than leaving her current life to be with him.

Mariana puts the last of her allowance in Kai's hand to ease his poverty. He refuses, but she insists. And it's 'Until the see each other again, farewell.'.
