Tsukushi arrives at a fancy party in casual clothes and realizes that Yuriko Asai, Minako Yamano, and Erika Ayuhara have tricked her. The girls reveal that they are jealous of Tsukushi spending time with the F4. Tsukushi retaliates by announcing the girls true intentions, being that they are only interested in men with money. She leaves the party after pouring red wine on Yuriko's head.

The next day at school, Tsukushi finds Rui Hanazawa at the same stairwell, despite him claiming he was never going there again. Yuriko and her friends jealously watch the two of them talk. They confront Tsukushi and reveal Rui's first love, Shizuka Todo. Tsukasa Domyoji yells at them to stay away from Tsukushi and offers his hand to her. In shock, Tsukushi almost takes it, but rejects Tsukasa by telling him this was all his fault in the first place.

They invite Tsukushi to eat with them, and tell her a story about Rui and Shizuka. As a child, Rui was under a lot a pressure from his father and became extremely withdrawn. Akira and Sojiro recall that they were unable to help him, but Shizuka slowly drew him out of his shell.

After hearing the story, Tsukushi enters into a state of shock. She happens to spot Rui kissing a poster of Shizuka. Rui teasingly asks her if she has feelings for him. Before Tsukushi can reply, he kisses her on the cheek and leaves. The following day, Tsukushi walks pass Tsukasa, who has straightened his hair to impress her.
