"You know Rumia you are right. I was going to throw in the towel if it wasn't for Kyoka's quick thinking at the start of the first challenge. We get inside that forest, find me and I'll give her my scroll. It's the least I can do I mean after not doing much in the first challenge.", Tashiro said after Rumia spoke about giving the scrolls over. No deception in his voice he fully meant what he said and clearly intends on giving the scroll over. "I still think the best way to finish this challenge is to work with others as a team to complete mission we are set to complete. A free for all to get the scrolls we are instructed to get. Forming alliances and teams isn't so odd, especially since our last task was to keep strife of sacrifice from separating us when we were a team." saying his bit of trying to form an aliance with the team he was with in the first challenge.
Tashiro understood Rumia's remarks and agrees with what she said. Kyoka did come up with the answers for first challenge, and pulled him from trying to sacrifice himself for the group before Kyoka figured out the right answer for that part of the challenge. Then a second time with the clones she had originally came up with the right answer and the only thing Tashiro did was stand there and did nothing.
"Don't let my offer of giving you my scroll give you the wrong message. I will still try and find a way to get a two or more scrolls to pass the test, but if you truly want me to give my scroll over then I will. If you girls want to help me afterwards find more scrolls then fine if not then that's alright too, at least one of us will pass though with two scrolls." Tashiro adds to his first statement just like the first although trying to defuse the tense situation. Tashiro wasnt trying any ruse to get an advantage to get scrolls from the girls he was planning on getting them from the other people in this challenge if he could. He hopes he could get some sort of alliance together for this task as it would be easier to have someone watching his back during this kind of mission rather then going in at it alone.
