Summary

Tsukasa Domyoji suggests going to New York City to talk to his mother, which Tsukushi Makino is completely against. Nevertheless, she decides to "trust him" and the two go out on a date without worrying about the secret police. Unfortunately, Kaede has already learned about the couple and orders for Tsukasa's cards to be stopped. The repercussions are almostly immediately noticed.[3] Though Tsukasa becomes suspicious about his credit cards, Tsukushi tries to reason it away. She then grabs his arm, saying "Let's go on a poor man's date!" After visiting a pet store, the two are gifted tickets to a baseball game. There Tsukushi happens to catch an important baseball, which Kaede sees on television.[4]

During the rest of their date, Tsukasa notices that something is off but decides to act normal. As he walks Tsukushi back home, they make plans to meet on the rooftop at school for lunch the next day. After she enters her apartment, Tsukasa is suddenly surrounded by several men. He declares "Don't lay a hand on Tsukushi," threatening to "kill" them if they do so.[5] The next day, Tsukushi waits but Tsukasa never shows up for lunch. The F3 talk to Tsukushi, revealing that Tsukasa's mother probably saw them on television. Sakurako Sanjo then says that Tsukasa has given his notice. Gathering her bearings, Tsukushi decides to go after him this time. The F3 give her their support and she quickly begins preparations for her trip.[6]

Shortly after arriving in New York, Tsukushi is robbed of her bag. She then learns that she cannot afford to stay in a hotel. As she wanders around, she is accosted by two men. Tsukushi is frightened until another man arrives, who turns out to be her old acquaintance Thomas. He takes her to where he stays with his friends. One of them happens to be the thief from earlier, but he only has her necklace left.[7] The next day, Thomas takes her to Central Park. He tries to talk her out of going to the Domyojis' home. She ends up threatening him, causing an old man nearby to applaud her tenacity. Even with Thomas and his friends' help, Tsukushi cannot get inside the mansion until Tama arrives.[8]

After splitting up, Tsukushi runs into Kaede who calmly takes her inside the house and leads her into a room. Tsukasa walks in seconds later. Instead of a cheerful reunion, Tsukasa looks at her with cold eyes and tells her "Go on home." Tsukushi is shocked speechless but shouts after him as he leaves the room. She ends up leaving quietly and lies to Tama that she is going "sightseeing." Tsukasa yells at his mother afterwards, but she remains unfazed by his emotions. Tsukushi ends up near the East River, where Rui Hanazawa mysteriously shows up. She pretends to act happy before asking "What are you doing here?" He answers "I was worried about you," leading to Tsukushi finally crying. Rui then holds her.[9]
