Natsume meets an old shrine god, and is forced to help her return a mirror to a youkai said to bring disaster. As it turns out, the youkai in question is actually Reiko, Natsume's grandmother, who the shrine god mistook as a youkai.

Reiko had lent her the mirror so the shrine god could save an old tree, but parted after Reiko learned she was actually a youkai.
