Tsukushi Makino is about to graduate from Eitoku Academy, and accepts that her family cannot afford college. Also, she has barely heard from her boyfriend, Tsukasa Domyoji since his graduation the previous year. Rui Hanazawa visits Tsukushi's family, when she receives a video call from Tsukasa. A misunderstanding arises after the call is accidentally disconnected. Determined to fix things, Tsukushi flies to Paris with the F3 to attend Shizuka Todo's wedding. While sightseeing alone, a man suddenly attacks Tsukushi. Tsukasa saves her and they return to the church together. There the couple reaffirm their feelings for each other and Tsukasa reveals that he has paid for her to go to college.
In Tuscany, an employee talks to Rui about whether to keep the vineyards or not, but he is uninterested. Shortly later, Tsukasa meets up with Rui to tell him about his plans to propose to Tsukushi. He also tells him about a girl named Kimiko that he should meet. Back in Japan, Rui tells Sojiro Nishikado and Akira Mimasaka about Kimiko and they decide to find her for him. The two guys have no luck finding her, but Tsukushi knows a Kimiko in her class. Afterwards, Rui asks if Tsukushi hopes "things work out" between him and Kimiko. He walks away after realizing he is causing her distress. The next day, Rui goes on a date with Kimiko. He immediately leaves after receiving a call that Tsukushi has been taken to the hospital.
At the hospital, Rui makes an appointment for Tsukushi to have a CAT scan. Before it starts, Tsukasa bursts into the room, having received a voicemail earlier. He proposes to Tsukushi, who refuses, explaining that she has something to clear up first. Akira and Sojiro come to meet with Tsukasa and ask about Kimiko. During the conversation, Rui realizes that Tsukasa has once again mixed up his words, and was not actually talking about a girl. He laughs and later arranges for Tsukushi and Tsukasa to meet at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, where they finally become engaged. Meanwhile back in Tuscany, Rui decides to keep the vineyards in hopes that one day he will be able to share a bottle of wine with his friends.
