Synopsis for "More Pain Comics, Part Four: Inza"

Kent V. Nelson has not recovered from the loss of his previous life and he decides to drown his sorrows in alcohol while flying using the magic powers granted to him by the Helmet of Fate. Nelson drinks every night for a week and a half until one night he is too drunk to keep flying and he falls down to a river. A woman who witnessed Nelson's fall decides to help the man and she takes him to the shore, where she tries to get some information from him. Nelson is not sober yet and the woman decides to take him home with her after the police and the hospital were discarded.

At the her house, she reveals her name as Inza Fox, which is a name that reminds Nelson of his great aunt. As they enter her home, Nelson learns that Inza is a comic book artist who has been working on the title "More Pain Comics". Inza chages her clothing quickly and she tells Nelson to take his clothes off and take a shower, because he reeks. Nelson tries to reach the bathroom, but he falls asleep on Inza's bed. When Nelson wakes up, he is in a bathtub and Inza is cleaning him. When she realizes he has awoken, she decides to let Nelson keep cleaning himself, but she is stopped when the water from the shower becomes a black substance that burns her and consumes her body. Nelson recognizes the element as magic from Negal, but he is unable to stop it because Inza removed the Helmet of Fate to clean it. Nelson is helpless as he watches the woman who helped him vanish in the water.
