After a assessment, sixteen fighters were determined to be fit to fight in the tir'ay tournament. Ka'hab opens the tournament by performing a tradition dance using Performance Style Ti'ray while in clay based makeup. Each round the number of remaining fighters becomes halved until only Ay'ame, Ys'sa, Oru, and Quel remain. In the semi-final round Ay'ame and Quel are defeated and Ys'sa and Oru face off in the final round. The match is close but in the end Ys'sa defeats Oru. An'jhali announces Ys'sa as the clan's first Tir'ay champion.
An'jhali puts the call out for a Healer.
Mari'ciel continues to work instead of going to the tir'ay tournament. Even though she goes down to the river on a regular basis to cool down, Mari'ciel eventually succumbs to dizziness and faints. Luckily she was discovered and awakened by Hetros, who advised that she get some rest. This along with the harvester who got sick on the previous page is what triggered the call for a Healer.
The harvesters take a break to watch the Tir'ay tournament and are overjoyed when one of their own wins the final round. Ys'sa then leaves the harvesters but Nerev is hired on soon after.
Quel takes a bath in the river to soak his wounds. Afterwards Ys'sa and Ro'sij are hired on as scout assistants.
