The events took place shortly after the decision to visit the Water Gate city. Petra Leyte was being extremely petulant because she was not one of the people who would be going to the Water Gate City. Instead she would be accompanying her master, Roswaal L Mathers. Otto Suwen listened to her complaints for a bit, even suggesting he would talk to the Margrave himself about it, which Petra refused. At this point it seemed that everyone except Otto and Petra had forgiven Roswaal for his transgressions in the Sanctuary. Otto asked Petra to baby-sit Roswaal whilst he was away, to which Petra agreed, saying she would have done that even if he had not asked. In return, she asked him to take care of Natsuki Subaru and the others. Otto asked if Petra was worried about him, to which Petra replied that she saw no need to do so.
A while later, Frederica Baumann entered the room Otto was working in. Frederica apologised to Otto for Petra's discourteous manner earlier in the day. Otto tried to pass it off as nothing, but Frederica rebutted, saying that it would not be good for the girl's growth. She then continued to speak to Otto, mentioning that she was worried about her little brother, Garfiel Tinsel as he wouldn't be in arm's reach to her where he was going. She was worried that her brother's behaviour would cause problems to Emilia, and she politely asked Otto if he could look after everyone, especially Garfiel. Otto pledged that he would do his best, and then asked if Frederica would be worried about Otto himself too, to which Frederica showed nothing but confusion.
After taking a bath, Otto was met by Ram in his room. After a bit of back and forth, Otto asked her if she had come here to talk to him about Priestella as well. To which she replied that she did, telling Otto that he had an extremely important duty as Emilia's adviser. This was because Roswaal's greatest wish would depend on Emilia's actions being carried out. Otto asked Ram if she was worried about him too, which Ram denied.
After Ram left as well, Otto reflected back on the conversations he had with the three maids. He surmised that their lack of worry about him must mean that they trusted him. After brushing his teeth in the washroom, he once again turned back towards his room. On his way there, he met with Emilia. They spoke a little, and Emilia told Otto that she was going to give it her best in Priestella. And before wishing him a good night, Emilia told him that as Otto was going to be there, everything would go okay, because they depended on him a lot.
