- "Looking back I shouldn't have been so vague. I should have been more direct. I didn't know that I wouldn't get to see her smiling face ever again, but at the time I had no idea."
- —Haruto's narration foreshadows the next chapter.
Konno, Oto Edogawa's co-worker, interrupts a possible confession from Haruto Kaguragi to Oto. He almost passes out from hunger and the co-worker offers to take the two to her apartment, where they share a meal.
Oto Edogawa's co-worker, Konno interrupts Haruto Kaguragi from possibly confessing his feelings to Oto. Haruto falls to the ground and reveals that he has not eaten all day. Oto tells him to call someone to pick him up, but he refuses to go home. Konno invites Oto and Haruto to eat at her apartment since it is nearby.
Haruto and Oto are shocked by how messy Konno's home is, though neither say anything. Konno tells Oto to make something, which Oto refuses to do before conceding. Oto starts cooking, when Konno goes out to buy drinks. Taking advantage of Konno's absence, Oto asks what Haruto meant by saying "won't I do?". Haruto stays silent, when Oto assumes that the question meant that he was comparing himself to Tsukasa Domyoji.
Konno comes back with the drinks and everyone sits down to eat. Haruto refuses to eat food that was not prepared by his chef, however Konno forces him to eat anyway. He ends up liking the food, but breaks out in hives. On the way home, Haruto apologizes for insulting her before and tells her "don't say that it's none of my business", referring to Oto's life. In hindsight, Haruto wishes he had been more direct about his feelings.
