Dia was worried that K might be able to overpower them but Yui was confident. With her powers restored, the Baby Star was determined to finish off this threat once and for all before it was too late. "As you wish, we'll end xim here." Going up against a Star, could Yui do it? Much of Dia's light had been given to Yui, she couldn't fight at full strength anymore. Conversely, Yui had much of her power, meaning she could fight at an extra powerful level of might now. "Are you sure you want to do this?" K asked after the brilliant light burned at their eyes, Yui's special ability coming into action. "You know what'll happen if you beat me, Yui, you Baby Star you." The Star of Freedom had collapsed, no longer a Star. No doubt Cirque would assign someone new to be the next Star of Freedom.

"You won't get a chance to say goodbye, Yui. Once the fight's done and they're all restored, it'll all be over. You'll ascend, and only after that will they return to their senses. There won't be a farewell." By winning this last fight, Yui would be giving up her life as a human, her existence here on Earth with those she loved, doomed to loneliness in the Star Layer. This wasn't Dia's choice to make, so she wasn't going to get involved here. It was up to Yui to decide for herself - but the former Star of Happiness had an idea that she knew what the baby would choose. She would happily give herself up for everyone else's sake, wouldn't she? "All you have to do is give up. I can sever this Layer from Cirque's influence, I can free it from the Stars and you won't have to ascend anymore." Out of everyone, only K knew how to do this. K was the Star of Freedom after all.

"I can give you the normal life you crave." Dia knew, Yui probably did too, that this was the answer they had been seeking this whole time. How do you relieve someone of this terrible burden? Ira Shoku tried his hardest, Hazuki Matsuri did too, even Hime did in the end. Sanctum worked their hardest but in the end they fell, and no matter what Raven concocted she couldn't find a way to save Yui from Ascension. But K had the answer, the golden apple for Yui to eat. "I can make you a normal, living human, happy and free." K gave one last smile before collapsing onto all fours. "If you change your mind, return here... I'll release you from Cirque's chains."

As they left the Antarctic and saw the carnage by Yui's school friends flaring up, there was a lot to talk about. Dia could of course sense the needed people for the strategy through Paradise, Damian, Raven, and Allyana were in various places now. Leo had sealed Ally inside an antilight chamber where she couldn't do anything, while Raven and Mizuki were destroying Australia. Last but not least, Damian was eating the minds of children in Madagascar. Dia relayed that information so Yui would know where to go to collect her friends. "This is your last chance to turn back." Dia told Yui, holding her hand. "I'll support you no matter what you choose." After this, there would be no saving the Maiden of Tragedy, not if she was going to do what Dia thought she would.
