2F - Submerged Fish (2): This is the fifty-third chapter of Volume 1 of Tower of God. It follows Khun and Rak as they try to convince Twenty-Fifth Baam to climb the Tower, but when he suddenly agrees they try to find a way to get Rachel to pass the test with them.
Khun and Rak argues about whether to force Baam into climbing the Tower. Khun reveals to Rak that he once had a half-sister called Maria, who is kind and caring. Khun has helped her half-sister to become one of Zahard's Princesses, but still, he feels "a hole in his heart". One part of Khun's intention is to find out his missing part in his heart through Baam and Rachel's interaction. In Rak's eyes, however, Khun has lost his ambitions to become the leader.
Baam suddenly comes in, and tells Rak and Khun of Rachel's leg injuries and his decision in becoming Rachel's legs and aid her in climbing the Tower. Baam sincerely asks for both of his friends' help to climb the Tower along with him. A sudden epiphany dawned Khun, and Khun realises that what he lacked is the act to climb the Tower with his comrades. Khun then promises Baam to teach him of the dirty tricks.
In the last scene, the three comrades sit in the same room, with an imaginary background appearing as in an orchard garden. Finally, the three friends discuss strategy in passing the tests, with Khun promising to acquire inside information from the Rankers.
I am lacking in many areas, but I try to create the best manhwa possible.

Notes and Trivia
- The scene in the garden is most likely an allusion to the Three Kingdoms where three men swear each other brothers and to fight for the same ideals.
