Titre original : Scattering Blossom Petals
When Miena refuses to board the carriage, Candy can do nothing but escort Miena on foot, while Mr. McGregor's condition continues to deteriorate. Miena barks at every carriage passing by, except for one. More, Miena climbs in the carriage of her own accord and is unwilling to get back down, to the coachman's despair. Mr. McGregor was driven to the hospital in that particular carriage. Seeing her opportunity, Candy asks the driver to carry them to the hospital. Once there, Candy takes over from Franny and accepts with patience Franny's reproof of her being so irresponsible to chase after relatives that cannot be found. Once Franny is out of the way, Candy smuggles Miena into Mr. McGregor's room. Once the coast is cleared from Merry Jane and Dr. Frank again, Candy softly wakes Mr. McGregor. He makes a speedy recovery after seeing, petting and talking to Miena. Before long, Candy can take Mr. McGregor for a tour in the garden to admire the trees blooming with blossoms. He is happy, feeling well enough to return back home, and now regards Candy as a friend. Having found his peace, Mr. McGregor draws his last breath while Candy gathers the blossom petals, only to discover his death much too late to do anything about it.
