This information could spoil the story!
1. When Anne Boonchuy first meets Sprig Plantar, Sprig is caught in her trap. They talk for a while, and Anne tries to leave Sprig(still stuck in the trap) as she hears the sound of the beast. And then, she looks back, struggling with some internal conflict, turns back to free Sprig from the trap.

In this scene, she cuts the rope with her spear, but then after that scene, the remaining rope tied on Sprig's feet disappear.
