The door opening again and her captor walking in interrupting Kururigi Aoi thoughts. He walks over to her and begins to untie the ropes holding her in place. This feels good at first but then Kururigi Aoi realises how much they are holding her up as when each rope is removed more of her weight if being transferred to her arms and wrists. Kururigi Aoi wants the block to be put back under her feet. Kururigi Aoi tries to tell her captor what Kururigi Aoi wants but with the gag in her mouth all Kururigi Aoi can make are muffled sounds. When all of the ropes are removed her ankles are released from the post, but still locked together. Kururigi Aoi captor now puts his shoulder against her and lifts he off the hook before making her stand on the floor. Kururigi Aoi brings her arms down in front to relive the tension in them. The wrist cuffs are undone before quickly being tied again behind her back.
