With his friend Ghozal in danger, Flio calls upon the forbidden time-manipulation magic he once used to save Rys. Even as a voice of warning calls out to him from the Celestial Plane, Flio makes the perhaps fatal decision to protect the peace he's built for his friends. But it's not all gloom and doom for Flio and Rys! At last, their mercantile dreams come true as the store opens for business--offering service with a smile to all, even as the conflict between humanity and demonkind grows ever more bitter. Could Flio's new store be the starting grounds for reconciliation? Will his extraordinary powers finally bring him the ordinary life he craves?
