Leez looks up at the man in the dark cloak who grabs the bracelet, and she falls back with her knees up. Embarrassed by the man's accusation that she is exposing herself, she punches him hard in the face. When she apologizes, the man calls her a disappointment to the Power of the Name. She has no idea what he is talking about, and focuses on trying to get the bracelet away from the "thief" and back to the owner of the box. When she remarks that bad people go to Hell to face Agni, the man then proposes throwing the bracelet and having a race without magic; the winner will keep the bracelet. Leez, confident in her speed, accepts the challenge. She loses sight of him as she runs, assuming she outran him. Just before she reaches the bracelet, she trips and stumbles headfirst into the man, who had just placed his foot on the prize. He teases her and calls her "Shorty," which reminds her of the little boy who had been dressed identically to this man. He seems to become momentarily distracted and begins to play with her curls. When she accuses him of cheating with magic, his hand moves away from her hair to firmly grasp her neck as he mocks her lack of strength. For a moment he reminds her of Idioty Smith, but then she becomes furious with this thief for threatening to break her neck. She sends her knee up into his groin as hard as she can.
Leez warned Kubera that Agni will punish him for stealing. That's rather ironic, considering that Kubera knows what sort of idiot he's like, and considering the fact that the two apparently parted on bad terms.
Leez's statement "When I told Asha about it later..." is a flash-forward to Chapter 2-125, when Asha makes the comment "You should have stayed with the box."
Kubera tells Leez that she has to become a beauty first. Maybe he already knows that it will be the case.
