Summary :- Yūgao thinks about the time she used to spar with Hayate, learning kenjutsu as she and the search party hunt for Hayate’s team. When they find them the sealing team quickly takes out the other members of Hayate’s team and continue over to Hayate. But they get injured in the process of protecting Yūgao from Hayate’s blow. They escape and get tended to their wounds. It is learnt that they cannot carry on further owing to their wounds. Yūgao explains to Sakura why she cannot fight anymore. But Sakura says that they had to fight because of the “unforgivable” technique that Kabuto has used to wage this war and goes to retrieve the scroll on her own. During the fight she is saved from a death blow from Hayate by Yūgao who had decided to step in. Yūgao tells Sakura to fetch the sealing corps. The fight ensues during which Hayate commends Yūgao on her improvement in swordsmanship. During the fight Kabuto senses the delay and tries to take over Hayate’s consciousness who seemingly pins Yūgao to a tree but in fact is saved by the efforts of Hayate to take back control and gets himself pierced by Yūgao’s sword and falls. He is finally sealed and everyone returns to the medical camp.
