During Reg's first descent, he and Natt come across a Praying Skeleton. Reg, unprepared for the sight, freaks out, but Natt, amused by Reg's reaction, tells Reg about the Birthday Death Disease, hoping to scare him further. Instead, this only increases Reg's resolve to enter the Abyss and find the answers to several mysteries. Natt becomes very angry, and insists that Reg and Riko are crazy for wanting to do something so dangerous.
On the previous night, Riko shared the message found in her mother's letter with her friends. Riko is convinced that Lyza is asking Riko to find her in the Abyss, and Riko is determined to do so. Natt is firmly against Riko's plan to leave. He reminds her how dangerous it is, how unprepared she is, and all that she would leave behind (namely, she would never see her friends again). Riko refuses to be swayed, and ends up fighting Natt in her frustration. Shiggy volunteers to help by obtaining more information for Riko. Reg, concerned by the tension between Riko and Natt, wonders how things will work out.
