Embarrassed by Oto Edogawa's rejection, Haruto plots his revenge and follows her to work. Not thinking, he saves her from a stalker, even though he was also following her.
Oto Edogawa, after slapping Haruto Kaguragi with a piece of meat, leaves the party he threw to impress her. As she walks away, Haruto imagines how he wanted the situation to happen. Still in shock, Kaito Taira arrives at the mansion with shocking news that Oto is actually poor since her father'sbusiness went bankrupt. He suggests kicking her out of the school, which Haruto deflects by saying that he wants her to "suffer".
At work, Oto apologizes to her co-workers about what happened. Oto goes into the back of the store to restock and Maeno follows. He reaches out to touch her face, startling Oto. Outside her workplace, Haruto and Kaito are watching Oto as she leaves the store. They spot Maeno following her through a dark park.
Maeno calls Oto's name from behind her, startling her again. He asks to walk home together, which she replies with "don't you live in the opposite direction?". This and her behavior starts to offend him and he quickly grabs her arms. Out of nowhere, Haruto kicks Maeno in the back. Maeno runs away as Oto asks "what are you doing here?" and Haruto stands in shock again.
