|Volume||Ten Years Later|
The Secret Base
In Italy, someone reports to Byakuran that the Chiavarone Famiglia was stronger then expected, to which Byakuran replies that it was as expected. The officer, per Byakuran's request, introduces himself as Leonardo Lippi, an F Rank officer. Byakuran states with a smile that as long as he does what he's supposed to, he would be happy. Byakuran then requests that Leonardo send white anemone flowers to Shoichi Irie in Japan.
In Japan, Tsuna tosses and turns in bed as he thinks of what Reborn said earlier, that when there was a crisis for the Vongola, the boss had to gather all of his Guardians to triumph over the predicament. As Tsuna hears about all of his friends over the past 10 years have been killed, he silently prays in bed to keep all of his friends he has now safe. In the morning, Lal Mirch states that she was going to kill Byakuran on her own, despite Reborn's quiet protests. Reborn then states along with Yamamoto that they had to find Hibari first on their mission to gather the Guardians.
When Reborn states that he wasn't going, Tsuna starts to get nervous, but Yamamoto reassures them, saying that they have the power of the Vongola Rings. As Yamamoto, Tsuna, and Gokudera head to Namimori Junior High, they see Kyoko, Haru, Lambo, and I-Pin being attacked by two Millefiore Black Spell members, Nosaru and Tazaru.
