Long Summary

Chapter 1

Nami goes to Lebno Listchaque, a famous shoestore, to buy new heels. After trying on the shoes with her crew and hurting her feet, she returns to the store to return the pair. One of the store's employees, Miucha, tells her she cannot return them because it is against the store's policy. The designer, Lebno Listchaque, arrives and makes an exception. He is so struck by Nami's beauty that he recruits her as a model for his runway show and has her fitted for clothes and shoes by Miucha. During the fitting, Miucha's demeanor and appearance remind Nami of her mother, Bell-mère. Nami has trouble finding shoes that do not hurt her feet, and Miucha tries to help adjust some for her. She succeeds at making a comfortable shoe for Nami and, impressed by Miucha's skills, the navigator asks why she is working under someone else, causing Miucha to accidentally snap off the shoe's heel. Nami disagrees with Lebno's policies and suggests that Miucha make her own shoes, arguing that the worst that can happen is that she gets fired. Miucha reveals that she admires Lebno but that she is one of many girls he leads on. Nami thinks she should go off on her own, but Miucha disagrees, fixing the shoes. Miucha has an internal dialogue about how people like Lebno who are raised in a pampered higher class do not recognize the plight of normal people and that there are many out there too, who do not have the luxuries afforded to Nami because of her beauty.

At the venue, a runway is set up to present Lebno's new collection, and the seats are filled with celebrities, editors, buyers, actresses, royalty and artists who are Lebno's regular customers. Miucha is happy to be in the audience—she often works backstage at his fashion shows—and a model, one of Lebbnos' other suitors, is sitting in the front row. She is wearing shoes designed by Lebno. However, Lebno says that his brand is only worth being worn by a handful of women, and Miucha thinks about his rise to fame. The more famous his shoes became, the more distant and judgemental Lebno became. He stopped caring about comfort altogether, forgoing quality for prestige. High buyers did not care about comfort, and Lebno became known around the world. Miucha thought he gave up on pride and chose commercialism, and she thought about her dream to make shoes that did not hurt no matter how much you wear them.

As the show begins, Nami is the first to walk out, but Miucha is shocked to see her wearing a completely different outfit that Lebno thought she would, including light makeup, everyday clothes, and the shoes Miucha designed. The crowd is impressed by Nami's natural beauty and behavior, which are elevated by her comfortable shoes and functional clothes. Miucha tries to get on stage and follow Nami but she stumbles. She realizes that Lebno's uncomfortable shoes had caused her loss of balance and she removes them, leaving the room barefoot to find Nami. Outside the room, Nami explains to Miucha that she will be happier making her own shoes rather than following a famous designer who does not care about her. Miucha appreciates Nami's kindness and falls to her knees, sobbing loudly. She thanks Nami by giving her the keys to Lebno's store. Miucha quit her job under Lebno and begins making her own shoes. An investigation is held after all the jewelry in Lebno's store disappears, but Miucha and Nami keep their mutual secret.

Chapter 3

Vivi works in her office as a maid brings her tea. The maid notices a drawing on her wall, asking what it is. Vivi responds that it's a portrait of her made by a local boy, though the maid considers it to be a very "abstract" piece, thinking that Karoo could make a better drawing.

Meanwhile, Koza sits at the top of the Alubarna Clocktower, looking down at the city. He hears a noise behind him, seeing Fata climbing into the room. They argue about the area being closed to the public, but eventually decide to both stay. Fata begins drawing Alubarna, telling Koza that he intends to give it to the girl he loves.

Koza attempts to guess who Fata's in love with, guessing both Salma and Yasmine, two girls that Fata is friends with. However, Fata declines both of them, and Koza eventually realizes that Fata is actually in love with the princess. Koza tells him to give up his love, since Fata is a child, but Fata claims that Koza just doesn't understand love. As Fata continues to draw, Koza informs him that Vivi will soon be leaving to Mary Geoise for the Levely, which makes Fata panic. He states that he needs to admit his love quickly, so Koza recommends writing a letter for Vivi, assuring Fata that she will read it.

Fata writes a short letter, giving it to Koza to read over. After Koza reads it, he goes to pass it back to Fata and it slips out of his hand, falling into the City Square. Fata freaks out, scared that people will find out about his for Vivi, as him and Koza run down to collect it. However, by the time they get there, people have already picked up and began spreading the letter, remarking that it's sweet and attempting to find out who wrote it. Fata, embarrassed, asks Koza to get it back somehow, and after a discussion with Aunt Mari, ends up claiming the letter as his own. He asks the surrounding people not to tell anybody about it, claiming to be embarrassed.

Vivi sits in her room, tired from her work. As she looks out the window, she realizes that she's been cooped up inside for a long time, and decides to go for a walk in the city.

As Koza finally gets the letter back, King Cobra, Chaka, and Pell arrive for a meeting with him. Intrigued, they ask what everybody is talking about, and ask to read the letter. Koza gives it to them instinctively, and after reading it, Chaka and Pell begin quizzing him about his supposed love for Vivi. Koza panics, unable to answer the questions, and tries to think of ways to leave. As he thinks, Vivi herself arrives, confused at the commotion.

Koza, relieved, passes her the letter, asking her to read it right away. She does, and despite everybody believing that Koza wrote it, recognizes Fata's handwriting, subsequently rejecting his confession. Everybody nearby is shocked that it wasn't Koza's letter.

Fata sits in his father's bar, drinking grape juice with Koza, Chaka, and Pell. He laments his rejection, claiming that it will only serve to help him mature, and that he will one day look back on it and laugh. Later, Koza visits Vivi, seeing that the portrait drawn by Fata is gone. She admits that whenever she looked at it, she felt bad for rejecting Fata, so she store it somewhere else. She promises again to be a ruler that her people can be proud of, and to do what's best for the country, acknowledging that she has more to worry about than a child's love confession.
