Aculeatus wants to leave as soon as possible, saying that the moon people are flimsy, but also quick and clever. Aculeatus notices Phos who says that they can't come to hate Ventricosus, and they don't care if they were used, as long as Cinnabar was safe. Aculeatus decides to use Phos after their declaration, but Ventricosus stops him. Phos remarks about how great Ventricosus is, and how Phos is still stupid despite being a lot older.
