|Witten by Minekura Kazuya|
The Sanzo Ikkou get caught in the rain and seek shelter in a cave, but it seems that the cave it already occupied by a young youkai girl. After talking with her, they learn that she'd fled the nearby village that has a tradition of sacrificing a youkai woman every year to their rain god in hopes of a good harvest. She'd run away and been hiding in this cave for a long time. Eventually the Sanzo ikkou realize the girl is a spirit/ghost, the remains of her body hidden in the shadows in the back of the cave. When the rain lets up, and the Sanzo ikkou move to leave, Goku asks the girl to come with them. She is scared, but takes his hand. When she leaves the cave her spirit is released...

The Sanzo party was intent to climb the snowy mountain when they met a group of men from the nearby village. They were looking for a girl named Mimei who run away from home. The men requested to the Sanzo party to convince her to come home if there’s a chance that they meet her. They also informed our heroes that the woods are surrounded of dangerous area, teeming with bandits and demons.
Afterwards, the Sanzo party heard a girl screaming and rushes until they witness a bloody scene near a frozen lake – a demon was killing a group of bandits and a girl on the site. Gojyo immediately pulled her out safety even though she’s try to resist.
Goku throws himself into the fray fighting the demon that possesses the ability to shoot sharp icicles as weapons. But as soon as the demon disappears into the lake, the ice starts to break down. Goku was about to fall but Sanzo grabs him by his coat. And the sharp pieces of ice scattered everywhere. Goku yelled at Sanzo to let him go but the monk didn’t let go of him and they both fall into the ice in a silvery light.
Goku regains consciousness to discover that he and Sanzo were not found in the icy water but in another dimension within the lake. There are snowy plains all around them and the snow seems to spring from the ground and headed for the top. Sanzo is severely wounded, bleeding extremely on his leg. Goku felt responsible for everything because Sanzo was wounded who is trying to save him but decided to stop him until after the guilt. For now, Goku must find a way to get out the place and give Sanzo a first aid. The two began walking to the cold snow.
