Tae after being staked

After Taketoshi went to close the door on her hut, he just closed the door, letting Tae escape. Tae found her way back home and Kanami let her in. When Tae told Kanami she was hungry, Kanami tried to make food for her, but Tae would just throw it up. Kanami accidently cut herself, and Tae tried to drink the fallen blood. Kanami then offered to give her mother her blood, and Tae tearfully agreed. When the Shiki extermination began, Kanami's childhood friend Motoko Maeda, whose entire family had been killed by her father-in-law, discovered Tae sleeping in a room devoid of sunlight. Kanami told Motoko not to tell anyone, and Motoko agreed, but later broke that promise by telling the Shiki hunters about Tae. She was then staked.
