The Return of the Hero
"The Elf of the Forest" is the second episode of the third season of The Familiar of Zero.
While Saito, Louise, and Agnès are traveling to the village where Tiffania lives, they meet up with Siesta who manages to tag along because she is carrying cooking supplies and food. During the same evening, while they were having dinner, Louise gets into another fight with Saito and walks off. Agnes, who is making a wooden sword, asked Saito to train a little bit to see how much he has improved on his swordsmanship. The next morning, while they are traveling, Saito sees Tiffania and chases after her. At first she doesn't recognize Saito but after shouting her name a few times, she turns around and hugs him. Louise and Siesta are jealous when they see how big Tiffania's breasts are. The same evening Louise tries to ask who she is, and Saito explains that she saved him during his battle. Out of spite, Louise starts to fondle Tiffania's breasts convincing her that they were some unknown substances rather than actual breasts. But when Saito stops her, Louise runs away and Siesta follows. After forming a temporary alliance against Tiffania, the two gets attacked by Sheffield. Louise gets her wand knocked out of her hands and Siesta recovers the wand for her, but gets knocked down by the enemy in return, causing her to faint. Louise tries to protect both of them against Sheffield, but her void magic isn't strong enough. Out of desperation, Louise tries to summon Saito as her familiar again even though it seems impossible. To her surprise, Saito appears and Sheffield is thrown off guard. Due to this, Sheffield retreats and Saito and Louise renew their contract with a kiss. Saito gets the "Gandalfr" runes burned into his hand again. Upon seeing Saito, Siesta interrupts Saito and Louise's intimate moment by launching herself onto Saito causing Louise to respond by saying "Hey, Stupid maid, sleep longer!" We also see Sheffield contacting her master Joseph about Saito. Which also reveals "Master Joseph's" Appearance.
