Hige, Tsume and Toboe consider giving up on the search for Kiba and Paradise when Toboe finds Quent Yaiden lying half-frozen in the snow. As Hige and Tsume leave to search for Kiba, Toboe stays and lays down beside Quent to warm him up. In his sleep, Quent thinks he is holding Blue. After leaving Quent, Toboe is attacked by Ihk, a member of the Hmong tribe. Hige and Tsume hear him howl and rush back to help. When Ihk realizes they are wolves, he apologizes and leads them to his village. The Hmong tribe consider wolves their friends and are on edge because Lady Jaguara's troops have been attacking their tribe's dogs. In the morning, they decide to search for Kiba at the Desert's Bones, a place people are rumored to find eternal happiness and never return. As they prepare to leave, Toboe decides he wants to stay in the village with Ihk and his people.
Meanwhile, Kiba finds himself in a lush area full of vibrant, green grass, plenty of water, and a variety of wildlife. There, he meets Mew, a female caracal, who tells him they are in a place where everyone can be free and they don't have to worry about being different species. Kiba believes he has found Paradise as he feels so at peace and everyone is living together. They play in the grass and she asks him to stay with her forever.
