Countess Cassandra is curious why they are fighting already, and Bloom responds, it is a start of a loving sister relationship.
The next morning, Stella forces Bloom to wake up early and to help her prepare for her ball. Bloom is very helpful around Stella. Chimera tries many different ways to ruin Stella's day, but fails each time.
Chimera goes up to her mother, crying and complaining, saying how much she hates Stella because Stella gets everything.
Countess Cassandra seems a bit jealous at the way Stella is treated. Valtor then appears, looking for the light of Solaria, and makes a deal with Cassandra and Chimera. He would make them powerful if Cassandra showed him where the light of Solaria was.
Chimera and Cassandra respectively casted a spell on Stella and King Radius. Stella becomes a hideous monster, and King Radius is put under Cassandra's control.
