Apat na buwan na si Janus sa mansiyon nina Manong Joey pero naroon pa rin ang sakit ng dilang-karayom ng manananggal sa puso niya dahil sa pagkawala ng mga mahal niya sa búhay at sapilitang paglayo kay Mica.
Simula ng Christmas break nang mawasak ang proteksiyon ng mansiyon laban sa Tiyanak at sa mga kampon nito. Hindi pa ito nangyayari kailan man. Matinding bárang ba ito? Sa kabila nito, may mabuting balita naman si Renzo kay Janus na nagpapahiwatig na maaaring buháy pa ang Papa niya!
