Experience has never been Fujimaru's strong suit, and nothing could have brought that point closer to home than his failure to open fire at Hosho. This single act of hesitation thus set off a whole series of crises...

THIRD-i is down one sharpshooter, and Fujimaru is once again at the receiving end of a hostage threat; only this time, it's not only his sister's life at stake but Otoya's as well. Like an obedient puppet, he complies with their demands only to discover that they have been toying with him the whole time. Finally sobered by his own naivety, Fujimaru decides to take a risky gamble and spring a trap for the organisation. And the first step is to ask the head honcho of the terrorists out on a little tête-à-tête...
