Chapter Summary

Lusa's Point of View
Lusa comes out of the cave, to find that snow has fallen in the night. Ashia's health had deteriorated, and she begins murmuring about a pool of water and a cub named Ben, and has seemed to have forgotten who Lusa is.
Lusa asks Stella about it, and she says that Ashia was talking about the zoo she used to live in before she came to the Bear Bowl. Stella says that if she gets worse, the flat-faces would heal her, unless Ashia didn't come back. Lusa asks if that had happened before, and Stella replies that an extremely sick bear was taken away, and never returned. King interrupts Stella, telling Lusa that there wasn't anything to fret about, and the three bears go to sleep.
The next morning, Ashia begins to get very sick, not eating or moving. Lusa attempts to alert the flat-faces, but they don't realize, throwing her fruit. Lusa tries again, and they realize that something was wrong with Ashia. They fence Ashia in and shoo Lusa away from her, and she scrambles up to a tree nearby.
As she looks down from the tree, she watches the flat-faces tranquilize Ashia, much to Lusa's horror, who thinks that they had killed her. Lusa tries to leap down from the tree, but a loud noise coming from a firebeast startles her back up. The flat-faces roll Ashia up into a blue blanket, hoist her limp body up to a trailer, and drive her away from the Bear Bowl.
