and Kouran apologized and said that she can't be with him like he planned.
A flood followed and Chichiri held a knife over the neck of Hiko on a small rock-cliff and Chichiri told Hiko to give Kouran back. Suddenly Hiko slipped of the rock cliff and fell to the powerful waves and water currents the flood produced, and Chichiri held on to Hiko's hand. Chichiri let go, and another moment he planned to save him, but a tree crashed on him and gouged out his eye.
Hiko was never mentioned in the series, but was only clued at. Chichiri told the story of the flood, and "I killed my best friend because he stole my fiancee."
