Ren says "It's not right to disqualify a candidate just because she appeared late. He makes his speech and saying that teachers are wrong and students should be given their own way (much to the teachers' surprise). Ren controls Miaka's schoolmates, and makes Yui vice-president. Although they discuss this at a room and the discussion was not very long, Ren offers to walk Yui home since it's getting dark. Yui just replies with a plain, angry "goodbye." As Yui was going down the stairs, the glass window shatters and she gets minor scrapes and cuts. Ren walks down the stairs and warns Yui to be careful because "they" do not want her to be devoured by an azure dragon again. Yui, bewildered, shocked, and confused about this, asks him who he is, and Ren says that Miaka is her enemy. He walks away. Then he is seen again when Miaka sees the writing on the blackboard, "Miaka Yuuki must die" Her schoolmates then bring her to Ren, and Ren talks about how they will jump her off the roof and how the public will have fun explaining it. She is saved by Taka, and Ren is suddenly wrapped with the scroll form of The Universe of the Four gods and is injured, and he disappears. After Miiru bites Taka's ear, Ren is held by Miiru , injured, saying that it will almost be over for Taka, and Tenkou appears, saying that Miiru should take her time.
