When that girl almost falling to her death, Licht saved her with his speed of flash ability. After he saved her, that girl thanked them and asked Licht if he could fly while touching his body, in which he was embarrassed. Soon, that girl revealed her name is Pelmo, she introduced herself to them and revealed that she has been doing the aviation research since childhood. While her research always failed, she didn't give up her hope and kept on creating more "steel birds" until her research succeeded. Pelmo then asked both Licht and Hina for help. At first, he asked Pelmo that if she knew that the aviation research was forbidden and that it could to her received death penalty from the government. However, Pelmo stated that despite knowing the risk, she still want to archive her dream and don't want to give up just because of the punishment. After hearing what she said, Licht decided to help her by drawn the new parts on her "steel bird" sketch. After Pelmo saw his drawing, she realized that this missing part in the reason why her experiment always failed. She then asked Licht for his true identity but he ignored her question. As Pelmo prepared to upgrade her airplane, she told Licht and Hina to temporarily stay at outside.

While Pelmo was busying, Hina gives Licht a lunch to eat as what he promised her to do earlier, despite he broke his promise as soon as he helped her. Hina asked Licht about his purpose for travelling, but he ignored her question and went to see her panties instead. Although it's interrupted by Pelmo just finished upgraded her "steel bird". Seeing how both of them acts awkwardly, Pelmo wonder if she interrupted something but both of them denies her words.

She later experimented her "steel bird", but was stopped by the Althea Royal Guards suddenly appeared in the grassland. Both Pelmo and Hina want to hide the "steel bird" but they don't know how to hide it. Realizing the Royal Guards almost walked near them, Licht had no choice but destroyed the "steel bird" while apologies to Pelmo, in attempt to destroy the evidence that she is doing the aviation research. Once the Royal Guards arrived in the area, Pelmo asks them what are they looking for when she is just trying to replace the destroyed big fan on her house, which the soldiers realize that she didn't do aviation research and leave.

Pelmo's count dropped to zero

After the soldiers left, Licht apologies Pelmo again for what he done earlier, she said that it wasn't his fault and the situation is understandable as there's nothing he can do. Hina said that if Pelmo want to remade her "steel bird" again she will always be there to help her. However, Pelmo said it's impossible as her count was dropped to zero, which leads the black hands appearing to take her away. Licht tried to attack the black hands, but he was paralyzed by the hands and it awoke his past memories. Before Pelmo is taken, she said that she is glad that she's able to meet them and solved her problems. While they couldn't test the "steel bird" due to the Royal Guards, she believes that what Licht suggested for her research must work and the "steel bird" must be able to fly. Lastly, Pelmo told Licht and Hina that she will be fine and she predicted that she would surely meet them again in the future. Both Licht and Hina hopelessly watching Pelmo left the world and Hina was crying afterwards, despite she claims that she won't cries earlier.
