After successfully infiltrating the Tower of Heaven, the team is encountered by guards. However, Erza quickly defeats them before telling them to go away, to which they refuse. Seeing how much her friends care for her, Erza decides to reveal to them her horrible past.
Natsu, Gray, Lucy and Juvia arrives and wonders why they were allowed to come in. Natsu reckless as usual starts to shout where are you square bastard and Lucy has to intervene preventing him to shout. Juvia says that someone is following all their movements and they open the trapdoor to let them in on purpose. Lucy flatters her new dress which she got from Cancer as she does not like to wear wet clothes but Gray says it easy to dry their clothes as he dries his clothes using Natsu as a dyer.
Suddenly, a group of guards comes in, but Erza also arrives and knocks them out quickly. She expects her friends to leave, but Natsu is the first to refuse, and leaves to look for Happy. Erza says she will be responsible for returning Happy and Natsu home, but the group still refuses, saying it is now their problem, being that they are her friends. Erza tears rolling down her cheek begins telling her story.
A black Magic cult was responsible for creating the R-System that could revive people. She, along with others, were used as a prisoner and as a slave to build this tower. In the midst of all this chaos she managed to make friends. One of them was Jellal. He finds Erza after her punishment, with her right eye damaged, seeing that Jellal is angry and starts crying, saying its cruel. He gets her out, but is in turn imprisoned by the guards who they say they are going to him as an example. The guards take Erza back to her cell, where a little Shô cries that he can’t take it anymore. This wakes Erza up, both physically and spiritually, and she decides that the only way to gain freedom is by fighting and starts a revolt. Meanwhile, in the punishment room, Jellal is shown to have become, as Erza calls him, “evil”.
