The servants refused to help in cleaning up the wound of the white man because he was the enemy. The gardener observes that his master ought not to heal the wound of this white man as he was meant to die. First he was shot and then the sea caught him and wounded him with its rocks. If the master healed what the gun and sea had inflicted on him, then it was possible that they would take revenge on the master. Yumi was not superstitious but she was terribly frightened, she did not think it right to help an enemy.
