Thunderdrake attacks her again, and then she gets into a snowball fight. When she meditates, she sees a line connecting her to her father, and Destiny’s Wave refuses to say whether that means he is still alive or not. That night Team Kimba has a slumber party.
The next day Destiny’s Wave takes Chou to the Grove and shows her the memories of a previous Handmaid who failed in her task because she refused to kill someone. After that very disturbing vision, Chou is attacked by a demon on her way back to Poe. Molly tells Chou that she loves her. That night, Chou dreams about Molly, but Sara gets pulled into the dream, and when Chou figures out what is happening, she tries to kill Sara.
Chou agrees to join Nightbane’s demon-hunting group, then goes to apologize to Sara, and they agree to pretend they are losing their friendship to fool the Goobers. That night, the panty thief hits Dickinson.
Jamie arrives. In the middle of the night, Chou wakes up and finds the panty thief. Most of the cottage tries to fight him, but he keeps getting the better of them. He then says he is the Monkey King, and came to see Chou, before vanishing. He leaves the panties he stole with Sara.

- A demon: "The things flesh was a sickly greenish yellow, with a thin torso that looked twisted like a corkscrew. It had long arms that ended in claws, which glistened wetly as if covered in some sort of slime. It had two legs that were bowlegged and thick, moving swiftly like an insects. Its head looked as if it may have once been human but had been terribly changed. The mouth opened vertically with fangs instead of teeth. The eyes were a mix of colors swirling, no pupil. It hissed at Chou with something rolling under its skin."
